We have lived here since October. Terrible experience the past few months. The parking is a joke during the late hours when everyone is home - all of the people who live in the adjacent lot just park in our lot and enter their units from their porch door and not their front door because they don't have room to park in their actual lot. The tenants in our building couldn't park their cars between the white lines if their lives depended on it. There's always at least a dozen children running around the parking lot, screaming, zipping their bikes around corners, and leaving their toys everywhere. The office staff left a note on our building's door for all tenants to keep their children out of the parking lot but that has been virtually ineffective as there is no place for children to play except a small volley ball sand court. Recently, they removed the exterior buzzer outside of our building so now FedEx can no longer deliver to us for some reason. Our fridge handle snapped off and has yet to be replaced after we contacted maintenance. The blinds are extremely cheap and prone to breaking along the mounting bracket (which is a $25 fee to replace of course). One of the burners on the stove top doesn't work but I'm not even going to bother mentioning that because I'm sure they'll find a way to charge us for it. Every tenant pays a "pest control fee" but we somehow still have mice/birds/whatever crawling around in our attic (we're on the third floor). Still no sign of pest control. The heat/AC is a joke in the master bedroom so the energy bill is always a little extra if you want to sleep comfortably. All tenants are basically restricted to Time Warner Cable because it is "included" in the extra rent fees for 50 Standard Def channels. Time Warner Cable is currently out of the new cable boxes so we are stuck with a crappy 10-year-old one because there is no other option. The carpets, appliances, sink fixtures, and trim are all out-dated. Grandview Summit "Luxury Apartment Homes" You could find more luxury in the dumpster on the back side of the parking lot. You just have to dodge a dozen screaming children to get to it.
One they are spacious,plenty of closet space,the office staff is not rude !! I have never ever seen a bed bug and I've lived here almost five years and if you have any little bugs it would be rolly Polly bugs and the pest fee is included in your fees for electric ,water etc.and if you tell them that you have them they will come in and spray .So this is a nice quite community.
Highest price around for outdated units, Office staff goes from bad to worse each time they change, No place for small kids at all there is nothing for them. With your rent you have to pay 130.00 for water, 30-35 dollars for pet fee so by the time you pay the water rent and pet fee you pay over 1000.00 for a 2 bedroom unit. The kitchen is tiny, the bathroom fixtures and tiles look like they came from the 80s, Old stoves and fridge, cheap blinds. In winter the master bedrooms are Ice cold even with heat blasting so expect a high gas bill in winter. If there are out of control tenants they ignore the problem so they can keep money flowing in. Forget the parking they purposely don't have enough so you have to walk a mile or rent an overpriced garage. They nickle and dime you, they do not include any utilities but add the huge water bill, If they have a problem with a building that has to do with normal issues that happen like plumbing they try and blame the tenants and charge them for damage. You have to drive your trash to a dumpster up the street. Office staff are rude. when your lease expires expect to pay alot more if you plan to stay. Lots of insects and if your lucky maybe you will get a unit that does not have BEDBUGS which if you bring this to the office attention they do NOTHING. The best part about the whole place is the maintenance men, They truly are the best part of these apartments and even when they are overworked they go out of their way to help. So if you wanna live in a non kid friendly, Outdated, Uninsulated, Have to walk a mile to drop off trash or find a parking spot, OVERPAY while your being treated rudely, and if you like sleeping with bedbugs this may be a place for you.
The apartments are spacious and feature quite a bit of closet space compared to other places I looked at. Some things have been updated which I would think varies from unit to unit. My specific unit has a new microwave but an older refrigerator and dishwasher. The bathrooms have ceramic tile but they went cheap in the kitchen/laundry and used vinyl. The grounds are nice however you will find trash littered everywhere and sadly, not all of the dog owners pick up after their pets. The pool definitely isn't kept up as it should. It's heavily used and often the water is cloudy and full of hair/dirt/sand. Ultimately, the size of the pool doesn't accommodate the size of the community. Better maintenance would be very beneficial though. Overall, the place is nice but somewhat overpriced. The monthly rent is fair but when you add on the "utility package" that is required on top of the gas/electric you already pay for, it seems high.
