They should change their name to "Shadybrook". I lived in these poorly made apartments for 1 year, hated almost every second of it. Just to give you an example of how poorly made they are; I could hear my upstairs neighbors using their restroom from my kitchen. And I'm not talking them flushing their toilet, I'm talking full blown taking a piss in their toilet... from my kitchen. The main thing that makes Shadybrook shady though would be after I rode out the 1 year lease and left that God forsaken crap fest. I scrubbed that place down, replaced things that I couldn't get spectacularly cleaned (example; the oven racks). The only thing damaged was the carpet and that wasn't even my fault, it came up when I paid for the carpets to be cleaned, which I TOLD them that happened. Anyways, they wouldn't do a walk through with me, due to new management the manager does the walkthroughs... alone. I received my "reconciliation" for my deposit a month later. I was charged for the carpets (which I suspected would happen), two months of water that I "didn't pay" even though it's TACKED onto your bill, and almost everything in my apartment. Everything. The oven racks I replaced, the dish washer racks in the dishwasher that I NEVER used, the sink stopper that I reported when I moved in that it didn't have one. They even replaced a door that wasn't even damaged! So, on top of them taking my $250 deposit, which I already expected they would to cover the carpets, they charged me $107 on top of that for repairs and replacements that didn't need to happen! If I could give this place Less than one star... I would. In a heart beat I would. If you're looking for crappy apartments, at an unreasonable price and you're looking to get completely f**ked in the end financially. This is your dream home!
The management isn't responsive to maintenance, but the prices are fair and the location is good. No issues with the neighbors.
Don't rent here! This complex is falling apart. 2 weeks I moved, coming back to the apartment to find out the apartment flooded because a water line under the bathroom sink busted. All my things damaged from electronics, tv, computer, home theater, up to college books clothes shoes and furniture. Also everything was tossed to the patio without my consent to put their carpet driers in. Also right now I'm paying a debt collector because they claimed damages on the other unit they later moved me into and the electricity of their carpet driers. I've lived in apartments all my life and this one is the worst one ever. Just when they show you the place you're about to rent smell the mold in the air. There's a lot more bad things but these are the worst of what happened to me in there. STAY AWAY FROM STONYBROOK OR ANY OTHET SCOTIA GROUP RENTAL PLACES.
4 repair requests and 3 office visits... Still need a/c
these apartments are the worst apartments I have ever lived in they mess up your credit charging you for damages that where already there before even moving in, our apartment flooded and all of our things were ruined even my shoe collection. they acted really nice when all of that happened saying they would help us etc. but after it was all over they turn around and charge you for the damages you didn't even do my bf is now in debt with them after 6 months already having moved out . DO NOT GO THERE "CAUTION" THEY WILL RUIN YOUR CREDIT AND SQUEEZE EVERY DOLLAR THEY CAN TAKE OUT OF YOUR POCKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
