Every Appliance we owned broke. Repairs done in untimely fashion or not done at all. Paper thin windows get covered in water. Overall a shoddy, crummy place to live. Do not move in.
I've had two packages delivered from USPS to the management office go missing. I get flippant remarks from the staff and am told to take it up with the postal service. Rent goes up almost %20 for a renewal at the end of a lease, which is ridiculous since the apartments are already overpriced. Appliances, carpet and fixtures are shoddy. Costs a small fortune to heat in the winter - single pane windows. You're better off elsewhere.
I lived here when it was Creekside Apartments, they always bounce your monthly rent around from the described , advertised rent , but, it still wasn't too bad. Then Holland bought it, (changed the name to Taluswood) they are horrible, got out, had to break the lease , it went from $850.00 p/mo. to $1250.00 p/mo for a 2 bedroom apt in one months time, could never get a straight answer out of them why, and it cost a small fortune to heat during the winter, the staff there was unresponsive, unless you were late with rent! They did zero maintenance and were pretty much horrible, Look out for these guys, its a scam and had really gone down hill (so bad). Run while you can.....
Lived in Taluswood for one year and left as soon as our lease expired. Pros: -the grounds are keep up very well -the office staff are very friendly -the location is very convenient for our commute to work Cons: -the rent hike at the end of the lease term was horribly high (20%) - was not a worry for us since we wanted to move out anyway, but being excellent tenants this seemed odd. -the cleaning fee was way above what they had verbally agreed upon. In the end always take the lease contract as the word of fact. The office management said the fee was going to be very minimal since we provided proof of shampooing the carpers, deep cleaning the oven, and several other deep cleaning services provided by a cleaning service we hired. In the end they charged us the max amount allowed in the lease terms. Very disappointing... -During our stay we had some neighbors that had the cops come out on 2 separate occasions due to domestic disturbances. We also complained several times about their loudness on some other different occasions. Well guess what, their lease was renewed (gathered this information from brief conversations with the noisy neighbors). I can only surmise that the noisy neighbors paid the massive rent hike and the management could care less about their character since they are getting a higher rent. -dog poop everywhere. This is the fault of the dog owners here since the apartment has dog poop stations everywhere. Still a fact I wanted to point out. -smokers all over the place. Not an issue if you smoke. However if you are a non-smoker then Taluswood apartments in not the place for you since you can never keep your windows open without getting bombarded by second hand smoke. I would caution anyone thinking of moving into Taluswood apartments. However never take the word of one individual. Read all the reviews and take the average opinion. That is usually a safe route to go when looking for a safe and friendly place to call home.
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.
