I have lived at 5 West for the past 13-14 months and absolutely love it here. This apartment is central to everything from downtown, 4 min from the airport and all the lovely Tampa bay beaches plus restaurants. The staff at the office is great and everyone is very respectful and very responsive to all needs. My best experience with the staff came this year when I had to move from my 2 bedroom apartment a few days before the lease was over since I had to travel and my new 1 BR apt wasn't going to be ready 5 days (normal processing time for apt turnover) into the new month. Victoria, one of the leasing managers was more that helpful in so many ways and I couldn't be more appreciative. First, I thought my new apartment had a washer and dryer in it and thus I didn't have to move mine but that was a misprint but veronica handled the situation beyond my expectations. She offered to give me about 40 dollars or so off my monthly rent and had the maintenance staff move my washer and dryer to the new apartment which was a huge relief since it was not going to fit into the storage unit she found for me in my building and on my floor literally right behind my new apartment making moving, storing and unpacking a breeze after by trip back. The office also let me borrow a trolley at no charge that I used for a few days moving and unpacking. Nicole, Sarah, Veronica and the awesome maintenance crew run this place so effortlessly, keep the landscape and surroundings clean. Everyone I know loves living here and I personally enjoy all the amenities, the pool, gym and clubhouse area which I have used to entertain my guest in the past. Dr. Joseph S.

This place is ok. The front office on the other hand should get slapped and thrown into the pool. The girls in there are so damn uptight except for Haidy she is the best.. the crew that takes care of the property is always on point. This place was always clean thanks to that great crew. Rent is to high for this ghetto @$$ apartments. Move here at your own risk
Clean, quite. Repairs were made the same day. Office staff is sweet.
This place was great a year ago. Now it has become quite ghetto.
I love 5 West. We've lived here for over a year and have no complaints. The resident functions are fun and maintenance always takes care of our issues within 24 hours.
