My husband, son, and I have been here a month. We are definitely moving out when our lease is up. I read that someone had said that fixing this place up is like sticking a band-aid on a broken leg, and absolutely agree. They installed our new floor the day before we moved in. They did a piss poor job of it, because the "wood" floor is uneven, and there are gaps between the floor, our toilet, and the walls. The guest tub has been broken since the day we moved in, and has not been fixed. And now the paint in the tub is peeling off. Honestly, though, who paints the inside of a bath tub? Our front door is broken, along with the door frame. The wood has split, and there is a gap between the door and frame. The tanks on both toilets are rusted on the inside. We have no ice maker. The shower rod in the master bath has fallen on me twice, and is starting to bow in the middle. The new carpet is already starting to fray and fall apart. The sheet rock is so cheap, that it falls apart if you try to hang any thing up. The two screws that we're holding our dishwasher in place have both fallen out of the cheap wood they used for the counters. The outlet next to our bathroom sink is out, again. The sliding door doesn't lock, and hasn't since the day we moved in. There is no way to change the temperature in our freezer, so everything gets freezer burn. There are dog feces every where, along with dirt and mud. The construction workers who were working on our balcony just left our outside light hanging by the wires. I would have liked to take our son out for a walk by the water, but we don't have access because we don't own a boat slip. The visitor parking in only on one side of the complex, and it's so far away from the other buildings that I'm not making my mother, we news a bad leg, back, and knee, walk back and forth. The extra parking in front of the marina, where we were parking, is now dock parking only, and you have to have a permit to park there. The neighbors are terribly loud, and tear through the parking lot all hours of the day and night. I definitely made a poor judgment call when I suggested this place. It's terrible. Also, the people in the office NEVER answer the phone. They don't even have the common decency to call you back after leaving a message with the answering service.
I never do this but I feel like this is necessary. I have lived here for a year and have had maintenance in my unit over 15 times. Management is very rude! There are new owners and they took away the gym and the marina access. I am mainly writing this because this morning I was sitting on my couch watching TV and a member of maintenance unlocked my door and came right on in without knocking. My privacy has never been so invaded. My husband and I are gladly moving out as soon as our lease ends. This place is not worth all of the problems that come with it including the excessive amount of spiders and ants. I would advise that the reader of this review continue to search for a different location to live. I would not recommend anyone live here.
Summary: You get what you pay for. Decent location, and not a bad price for the size of the units. Unfortunately, these are not young buildings, and while they have fresh paint in current colors (An attractive very light beige walls with brown trim), it's kind of like a band-aid on a broken leg. My husband and I have been here a year and a half. When we moved in, the toilet wobbled, so we called maintenance to get them to replace the missing bolt. The maintenance guy broke the toilet. Ok, no big deal, we got a new one. He also got grease on the hall carpet, that was fun to clean up... Then we realized the towel rack was barely holding itself on to the wall, and requested maintenance to fix that, too. He did - by squirting glue in the join which dripped down the wall. So he cut half of it off and ripped it off, along with the attached paint. And left it that way. The advertized icemaker was not included and not provided upon request. The disposal was backing up into the dishwasher - and our ultimate favorite was the water heater. We had almost zero water pressure for hot water into the kitchen (other side of wall from where the water heater is located). Kid came out to look, said it was probably just the pipes, he was sorry, not much to be done, but the water heater was fine. Three days later, the water heater exploded. There was water shooting out of it From The Electric Panel. It had rusted through the side of the tank, it was that old. Luckily we now have a brand-new one. The office staff seem to have the job security of a fast-food restraunt, but seem to be nice for the most part, and the grounds are well-maintained.
