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.
I'd give it no stars if possible. Worst place EVER! I know a lot of apartment buildings have a pest problem but wow. Not to mention that my husbands motorcycle was stolen right from where it was parked. When I asked permission to hand out flyers to see if anyone had possibly seen anything, I was told, just in your building and in the laundry room....Really?! The bathrooms are disgusting, and as much as I bleached it, it never seemed clean. I went to management and mentioned to them that it seemed like mold, and I was told that "it just needed to be resurfaced." We recently moved out with our new born and I went back to finish cleaning to turn in the keys and I found mold in more than one spot. Absolutely disgusting, not to mention that theres always trash lying around everywhere. When we first moved in our neighbor would literally be doing his business with his lady friend in his lanai that was right next to our bedroom (even though kids lived in our building). On more than one occasion we had someone trying to break in while I was there alone with my son (my husband works nights) and once while my husband was in the living room watching TV. NEVER going back to that place.
Current resident. Great staff. Go out of their way for you to make sure you're comfortable. Big apartments, reasonable rent. Quiet neighborhood. Don't let the other reviews fool you. If you're reasonable with the staff and give them adequate time to address an issue you're having they will get it done.
I only lived here for a few months and we have found numerous building violations. I have a hole in my attic that goes through the fire wall to my neighbors apartment that someone has made to obviously rob someone here and to steal our cable since we found our cable cords running through it. The front door was obviously kicked in and the latch was broken off from what looks like a home invasion. all of the walls have been plastered to fill in all of the holes and a horrible paint job to cover it in every room. The fuse box has been rigged with random fuses that we had them replace with the correct ones. Also their is no insulation in-between the walls that we discovered when we were fixing a broken socket that they provided. Speaking of plugins, the bathroom and kitchen are supposed to have plugins with it's own breaker built in for safety issues... well they do not have that here. Plus the crime is horrible here, multiple motorcycles have been stolen here and mine has been kicked over in the middle of the night. The staff won't let you chain it to anything here or they will tow it. All in all this is a horrible place that does not deserve your business.
This place is awful. My boyfriend lives in these apartments and I have stayed here frequently, until now! They have plenty of parking and I would say plenty of visitor parking too, but the other night when literally every single visitor spot was taken, (at least 5 were taken by motorcycles and mopeds) I was left without a parking spot. Thinking that it wouldn't be an issue to park in the area near the pool where there were at least 15 empty spots, (this was at MIDNIGHT by the way) I parked near the pool. I woke up the next morning, and my car wasn't there. In between the hours of MIDNIGHT and EIGHT AM they had someone tow my car... and the people that they have tow your car are actual scum. They picked up my car at 4:15 AM and I went to get it at 10:30... They charged me $60 extra because they said they had to "hold it for a day..." and when I questioned why I was being charged for a day when it was only 6 hours, they told me "anything after 6 hours is considered a day." The fact that these apartments are affiliated with such a slimy company to come prey on their residents visitors disgusts me. Not only that, but when I went to the office to see where exactly my car was, the lady in the office had a major attitude. When I asked her what we were supposed to do if there was no visitor parking available, she simply told me "Don't park here." I won't even stay here anymore after all of that...
