I have both amazing and partly negative things to say about these apartments. I lived here for 2 years, so obviously it wasn't that bad. I really loved my apartment and I was sad to go. The space is big for what you're paying for, with a huge central living room and big rooms. Big walk-in closets were my favorite. The staff was a mix of either really nice, funny, sweet women or really bitchy, passive-agressive, self-righteous women. I tried to always get the nice ones haha. The pool is so gorgeous, and no staff members ever come and bother you. The gym is pretty equipped. The office area is really nice, with a full lounge, kitchen, and TV area. There is a pool table which is my favorite part. You can bring a few beers and play pool! The maitenence responds quickly and politely. Parking can be difficult if you're coming home past 10 pm, but it's not horrible. Overall, I would say definately rent here but keep in mind the few negatives that I mentioned. Unless you have a pet, don't read on: You have to pay $250 per pet, and you don't get it back. But I think that is pretty standard anywhere. However, when you have pet damages, you pay for those too. Wouldn't you think they would just use your pet fee money? Nope. My apartment had pet damage, so we had to pay about $500 when we moved out. There was no security deposit, so that was good. (This might just be in my case because I had my father co-sign). You're only going to have to pay for the damages they can prove. I had one pet move out and another pet move in, and I had to pay the $250 AGAIN. Because it is "for each pet." I think that is kind of bull, but so be it. Then you have to pay $12 a month for your pet for every month of your lease.
Yes the apartments are beautiful and well maintained. But the staff were horrible when I had a real emergency and had terminate my lease suddenly. Considering my situation was extreme and I had moved all the from California to Oviedo Florida for a job and to start a new life for myself and my son. I'm a single mother and a veteran this was suppose to be a fresh start for us. The staff did not make a good impression or help me out in my crisis. Instead they made profit off it. It's not like I was some young college student who decided to up and leave. My son became very ill I could not even start work. My son could not be in daycare, and I would not make enough for a nanny nor did I have time to find one. Plus no family around it was a scary time. I had no other choice but to leave and go live with my sister in AL and figure out what was wrong with my son. I Instead of trying to rent out my apartment (Which they could have, I saw a couple wanting to move in the next day when I went in to make a payment) I had to keep the apartment and pay rent for 2 months, plus pay a pet rent and a huge termination fee but the rent amount was ridiculous to begin with. The thing about the cats is that they were at the apartment for 3 weeks with us, did no damage I have pictures to prove this. I had to pay a pet rent and not get the pet deposit back or only for one cat. It just doesn't seem right that there could not be some exception to help me out. I served our country and it's disheartening that this is how I will remember Florida. I had to pull money out form my IRA. I'm responsible and I did what was best in the situation for my son and I. The staff would not work with me. I had to pay everything until official termination date. Paying for a place that could be rented out, paying electric and water for an empty apartment. If you plan to live in these apartments make sure you read the lease carefully and don't HAVE any type of emergencies because they will not care what so ever and charge you for ever little thing.
I love this place! Been here for a couple years now. If you take the time to tour it you will see. By far one of the best living experiences I've had in a long time! FIVE STARS! The staff is courteous, intelligent, friendly, and know how to make you feel right at home! They actually feel like extended family. I always enjoy their company! They better keep in touch! I'm moving out and don't want to go to be honest... but it's a 45 minute commute for my job and its time. The maintenance crew is amazing as well. We know them all by name and are great at helping out and taking care of service calls quickly and efficiently! The grounds are well maintained and very safe. Gate is always fully operational and the the beauty of the grounds still gets me when I pull in, day or night time. Apartments are spacious with bay windows and lots of natural light. It will be hard to leave this positive experience and home.
The staff is friendly and always pleasant to talk to. The apartments are very luxurious, spacias, and has extremely beautiful landscapes
Very helpful and are on the ball and quick when it comes to repairs.
