It had been a very long time (decades) since I rented an apartment. But I took a contract job in Omaha and rented a single-bedroom apartment at Loveland Apartments from October, 2014 through July, 2015. The central location makes it very convenient to nearly any kind of shopping you could want, yet the traffic is mercifully light given the urban location. I fell in love with the place at first sight, and was willing to wait nearly a month for an opening in order to live there. Brenda (the apartment manager) was always friendly and helpful, and her staff helped me out with contact information to get my utilities set up, both when I moved in and when it came time to leave. The grounds and apartment were very well-maintained. In winter the snow was always cleared before I took off to work in the morning. Tenants are carefully pre-screened, and the security doors on all the building entrances are a nice feature (except when you have an armload of groceries). My neighbors were friendly and quiet, though everyone pretty much kept to themselves except to say hi in passing. In fact, my next-door neighbors were so quiet I wondered for several weeks whether or not the apartment was vacant. On the few occasions I experienced any kind of maintenance issue, it was always corrected the day I reported it. Jason - the maintenance guy - always left a card on the counter in the apartment to let me know he'd been there and what sort of maintenance was performed. (Like I couldn't tell with both the door handle and deadbolt locked when I returned.) And he never left any kind of mess in his wake. In short, while I wasn't ecstatic about having to work so far from home (Colorado), I can't imagine a nicer place to stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and well-maintained place in a central location. The one thing I didn't like was the fact that there is no on-site exercise facility. (There is access to one, but you have to drive to get there, which doesn't work for me.) The only other negative I found was that exiting onto Pacific Street the logical route during the week is from 78th Street since there is a traffic light at the intersection. Since it is at the bottom of a steep hill, I was always a little nervous about it during times of snow and ice and chose a different route, turning right from 75th Street and circling the block. Kudos to Brenda, Jason, and the entire staff there for making it such a pleasant experience. Though I hope I'll never have to go live in Omaha again, I'm pretty sure I would check on Loveland Apartments again if I did.
This was the best management and apartment complex I had the pleasure to live at from June 2010 to October 2011 until we moved to San Francisco. The manager, Brenda was very friendly, helpful, and professional. Every issue we had with our unit was taken care of in a timely fashion by the management. If I ever had to move back to Omaha, Loveland will probably be where I would want to live at.
