The neighbor was load, especially the guy upstairs. But other than that, I didn't have complaints living there. However, they decided to raise my rent by more than 20% at the end of the year. That's why I decided to move. And they promised to deduct only $100 from my deposit for cleaning fee. But in the end they managed to rip all my deposit with $155 cleaning fee, double charging all management fees and else. Two of my neighbors moved out around the same time when I moved out, because of insane rent hike. Good luck to them on their deposits.
My wife and I have lived at this apartment for near on two years. We decided to renew our last lease since the expense of moving would have out weighed the rate increase. That being said that rate increase was nearly 18% over our previous year. I can live with noisy neighbors and the issues that tend to come with apartment living but when the staff is rude it is appalling. I work in the property management business and if I were to act like this to my customer's I would be fired. Along side of this they set rules and then don't enforce them. They allow people to leave there vehicles in the same place for more than the allowed 72 hours and say that oh they have moved the car. I know that they have not moved it. We've had them enter our apartment with no notice and they have no flexibility when it comes to them giving out notice that they will be entering to do some BS maintenance. There have been several issues with the lights in the breeze ways and since the building we live in is in the back corner with lots of trees and great privacy having not lights in the breezeway is not a safe thing. . They were out for more than 48 hours with no notice as to when they were going to be fixed. I had called and spoken with an on call maintenance person and he laughed at my concerns and poorly handled the situation. The management did nothing to assuage my worried mind. They didn't put up any kind of extra battery operated lighting and the lights were out for 4 days. Please if you have any choice, Choose not to live here. The staff will be friendly to your face but if you raise any concerns they will start to talk about you to other residents I know this for a fact considering that my neighbor has told me what she has heard from one of the employees. Honestly I can't wait for our lease to be up. Because we will be moving.
The enter system is a scam...from utilities, garbage, sewer and unit price. They claim it's the going "market rate" at almost $1000 a month for a 1bdr, yet I'm moving across the street from Greenlake for only $650...hmm...the "market rate" they are referring to is that Holland residential owns over 30 apartment complexes and they are artificially inflating the market price by monopolizing these units in the area. Anyone who think this is apartment is a good price obviously doesn't have much of a education. Do your research..stay clear of this scam!
I moved in to an apartment at Taluswood in January. I've had absolutely no issues with neighbors, my safety, garbage concerns or anything I've read on here. The reason why is because I know that it is an apartment home. Not an actual house. Do I have a roof over my head? Yes. Do I have easy access to shopping, dining, highways and bus stops? Yes. That's all I need. For what I pay a month in rent, I feel as though I am getting everything that I expect for the price. My ONLY complaint, and this isn't against Taluswood or Holland, but regardless, it is a complaint, is that I hear an absurd amount of sirens daily. Mostly fire and EMT, but it does suck that they use our main road as an emergency access. I suppose if I needed either, it would be very convenient, but between the hours of 10-8 (quiet hours), it is rather annoying. I would recommend this complex to a friend that understands that apartment living is NOT house living.
beautiful Complex- ive lived here for about three months now and i love it. We have a few minor issues with our apartment upon move in and i went to the office and asked what needed to be done and the wonderful staff there said we could do a work order. with in the same day Maintenance was out got the issues cleared up that same day and they were as wonderful as they could be. Even explained to me what was happening. most places ive live they just fix it and walk out, if it was really even fixed at all. I had a friend who lived here under the former management I believe it was call creek side and it has really come along way since then. they have cleaned it up taken care of the landscape and it generally a more lively clean beautiful complex then i remembered it. the management is helpful and always understanding. it upsets me people only gave them a little bit of time to get things fixed before they started jumping down there backs. I love Taluswood and the team here.
