I have been here a couple months. I find the rent to be high, but I got in on a deal so that made it worth it. The grounds are nice and well kept. The laundry center would be perfect, except the unposted hours have left me locked out-twice. No biggie, just post the hours on the door outside, please. I've had a handful of maintenance requests, all were annoying on my end i'm sure, and were handled the next business day to my liking. Management has been helpful and positive. I assume the new security is who I see from time to time parked near my unit is nice, seeing as how a dealer is my neighbor. We all know what that entails: randoms getting their fix coming and going. Music and noises are easily heard, however its expected- Its an apartment complex, and the age is old so the walls/floors are thin. The railing is steel and the paint is peeling, but feels sturdy. So up close its merely an eyesore. I've enjoyed the "gym" aka the treadmill, although I hear it is on the renovation list this year so that's pretty cool. I can handle what comes with living in an apartment complex, if the management and maintenance are to my liking. I give this place a solid 9 out of ten stars for the short time I've been here. The location is awesome to me. Its within walking distance of banks, gas station, food, cvs, dollar general, and a mile away from groceries and Wal-Mart. I LOVE the inside of my apartment. The space is great, and mine is updated. I wanted to give a real and honest review and here it is. So far so good!!
I moved here from Tennessee and I absolutely love it here! The community is quiet and I hardly ever see any of my neighbors because everyone pretty much stays inside. Some of the people I have met here are very friendly and have been here a while. I really like the location it’s near Castleton and I’m not far from IUPUI where I work. The grounds here are always nice and clean which is a big plus for me, I love the grassy areas. I don't really deal with the staff much, but when I do they are always very nice and welcoming. There is a new company that just took over and they are starting to do many resident activities, however, I haven't had the time to make any. I plan to start attending them; it’s just hard between work and school. The only things I don't like are; the laundry room closes at 9pm, sometimes I don't have enough time to get my laundry finished during the week, the wondering raccoons at night, and sometimes finding parking is hard after certain times of the night. I could definitely see myself living here until I can buy a home.
Where should I begin? First off, don't move here. The low security deposit and cheaper rent is not worth it. From the outside it might look better, however I do recommend looking around the property beyond what they show you and the model apartment. The stairs and railing of the model apartment look nice but the rest of the complex is rusting away. No they will not do a walk through with you upon getting your keys but simply fetching you to find your place. I've lived here for 2 years and I am so excited to have this hell hole behind me. Living off of 38th and Keystone might have given me a better peace of mind than Villa Paree. A hit and run to my car, gun shots into an adjacent neighbor's apartment, constant jamming of the limited laundromat machines, squirrels in the walls, water being shut off at the complex's leisure, and littering of complex "news" are a few things one can look forward to here. I would not have even moved here if I didn't need to find a place from out of state within 2 weeks of accepting a job offer. Stay away from here. No the gym won't get better, the new management is worst than the old management, and no they won't extend laundromat or gym hours. If you choose to live here some peculiar neighbors will keep you entertained if you enjoy stalkers and creeps this is the place for you. Clearly the individuals giving this place 5 stars either work for the management company or are use to subpar living conditions. Upon moving out I discovered mold growing in my coat closet. And I pointed out the mold and they said we don't have to knock out walls unless it's black mold. Renter beware.
Will be moving soon as my lease is up.
