I'm giving it a good review. Yes some of the past mention things are true or have happened BUT there is a new management and they are doing their best to get this place on track. Very friendly and any issues you may have they try to resolve as quickly as possible. Yes parking may be an issue, but that is normal with a busy community. Neighbors being loud well I can't relate my neighbors are great, and yes they are young, but then again I might be the one watching the Walking Dead super loud.
This place is absolute trash. Do not sign a lease here. The staff is terrible, yes this includes the new management group RAM or RAN whatever they are called, especially them. Outside of the one Mexican maintenance guy who seems to do everything, he's great and deserves better than this s***hole. The former management group was considerably better and more competent. They are not understanding, do not reply in a timely manner to any messages or emails. Expensive due to proximity to IMG and college. You can do much better for your money. Trash everywhere, shady people, loud noises. Need I go on? I cannot wait to move out in May. If you like your life and liking where you live, do NOT move here.
The management company here is in cahoots with the towing company that they contract out to residents and guests of residents vehicles there are 7 visitor spots and thats it.... my friend came over to visit us, and within 7 minutes his suv was towed because he wasn't in a visitor spot...but thats the joke there are no visitor spots 2 of the 7 spots are taken up by a commercial fleet company that parks here every night.... Oh... did i mention that the people who drive these trucks dont even live here.....its a freaking joke $200 if you pick your car up by 1130pm the evening it was towed otherwise it goes up in incrimints of $100 and when you finally get to pick it up you better have Cash only......an absolute scam !!!!!!! i highly recommend you find another place to live
I have lived here about 8 months now. Never had any problems (aside from my car being towed my first night due to not having my sticker on yet)...that isn't the community's fault though, they hire them to protect residents' limited parking spaces, which is the only issue I have. VERY limited parking in the buildings H-J area. But the staff has been great. The maintenance man comes same day or next depending on issue and time of day. You can't rate a complex based on your neighbors. (Mine are great) but other reviews do and you will get "shady/sketchy" neighbors no matter where you live in apartments. The pool is heated which is nice for cooler weather. They just installed a nice new gas grill in the pool area which I have used a few times now (THANK YOU!)
Well, I will say that a lot of the things mentioned in the previous posts are somewhat accurate. There is trash in the courtyard at times because the garbage cans are right in front of your door instead of away in a central location. As you can imagine living next to a wooded area and garbage cans in the front of your door, its very common to walk out and a possum or raccoon is standing on your doormat. Not the mention the garbage men are too lazy to walk the garbage from the third floor, so they toss the bags into the courtyard where it creates this God awful trash smell. There is a ABUNDANCE of college kids living here, so there is noise and sketchy, I mean really sketchy people walking around. Parking is horrible...so if you are a female and get to the complex after about 830pm, you will be walking from the front of the complex where you will have to park to your apt in the rear. I feel like I'm held captive at night to avoid parking a block away. God help you if you have groceries. The walls are EXTREMELY thin and I can hear my neighbor's tv and I'm literally watching the Walking Dead with them. People and their barking dogs and the poop which is everywhere...EVERYWHERE is annoying. Do READ the fine print, because they do give one rate and once you sign the lease all these fees are added so you don't pay what you think you're going to pay for rent. I did have a problem with roaches in the beginning, so bad we kept everything in the fridge or ziploc bags in the cabinets. But they seem to have gotten better. The staff is mediocre at best. The maintenance guy is cool. I am not renewing my lease when it comes up. I'm sick of my loud ass neighbors and fighting for parking spaces. I will take great pride in letting them know i'm OUT! Paying almost a 1000.00 for a one bedroom in Bradenton is ridiculous.
