For the quality of the complex and the Northeast Phoenix location, the price is right. That being said, if you are looking for a super high quality apartment, this is not for you. However, for the family just starting off, or for the college student or single person, it is a great place for the money. I moved in in February of 2012 and moved out this March (2016) due to relocating out of state. THE GOOD: The apartments are huge. A one bedroom is just a bit above 700 sq feet. Every other building has an attached laundry facility, but for unfortunate rip off prices. Just up the road at Cave Creek just south of Beardsley, there is a very cheap laundromat. IF YOU ARE POLITE AND KIND TO THE MANAGEMENT, They are generally very helpful. (If you go in barking orders, they won't hesitate to show you the door and rightfully so.). Maintenance requests used to take forever and a day, but lately they have been fairly speedy. Use the online system to submit requests and it is usually pretty quick as they print almost directly to maintenance. The 24 hour emergency maintenance is usually pretty speedy - that you have to call for. 1am my water heater decides to flood, and they had a new one installed by 2am. All this for much less than the median rent for that area. Close to PVCC, I-17, SR-51, Loop 101, Desert Ridge, Norterra, and much more. All grocery stores, and forms of fast food within one mile. There is also a tennis court, and a volley ball court. THE BAD: The complex is old, and it shows. Right after I moved in they renovated some of the units, and the outside got a modern paint job, but at close appearance, the place has not aged well. The floors squeaked and rattled inside my second floor unit. At times I wondered if my floor would cave in. Parking spaces for guests are sparse. The covered parking makes no sense. Some units can have their spot right by the stairs while others have it on the other end of the lot. The "exercise room" is an absolute joke. It used to be good with lots of equipment with a connected bathroom/shower, but is now sealed off and about the size of a closet. It has two machines. I once caught their security officer dead asleep in the mail room. If you are disabled, good luck finding a handicap spot as they are few and far between, and too many j*rks without handicap plates / placards think they can park in the few that do exist. Night lighting is supposed to be ample, but between kids breaking the court yard pedestal lamps, and burnt out overhead bulbs that hardly ever get replaced, it is very unnerving at night. I requested the light over my parking spot be fixed - in JULY of 2015. It is now March 2016 and they still haven't fixed it or the busted lights outside. You occasionally have kids constantly pulling the fire alarms. Some of these reviews I feel are written with emotional bias, and indeed this certainly is not the best complex in northeast Phoenix, but it is also not the worst. It is a matter of personal opinion whether the above simply annoys you or you absolutely cannot stand. If you're on a budget but want to live in a semi-decent area and not be robbed in broad daylight, live here. You might enjoy it. It is a fairly okay place. If you are looking for top of the line everything perfect, go up 7th Street to Trillium or some other place that has 1 bedrooms for $1,000/mo.
Fairly quite place mostly because the walls and floors are cement but this cement also tends to over work the AC bad. The AC units are to small or not kept up to keep the unit cool even though it runs constantly. I havn't seen a full summer as of yet and can only imagine what my electric bill is going to look like. The spa is nothing more than an air bubbler, it has no water jet action all though the pool is nice. Not a bad place but I may have reconsiderd living here had I known about the ill AC units. I asked my neighbor about their AC and they have the same issue.
there is a reason that they only do one year leases and they know that they will lose money if it were any less because people would move out all the time. because it sucks here. and if you try to break that lease its about $3000. which i am seriously debating about taking and leaving. this place is the worst place that i have ever lived. there are a few things that they don't tell you up front. here's one for example: the AC is old and is not automatic. if you want to turn it off when the temp reaches what its set at you do it yourself. which then leads to a ridiculous electric bill. appliances are from the freaking 70's. a lot of people say that a concrete wall is nice for noise restraints, but the fact of the matter is they were to cheap to build a sturdy place so they went with cheap concrete. which also means no pictures, paintings anything in your living room or other rooms. the STAFF here sucks. they care nothing about you. if you tell them that your car got broke into because the security guard isn't here on mondays and tuesdays, they dont' care. and now we have no security. if they have to inspect your house, for some DUMB reason, which they do, they won't make an appointment with you. its on their time whether you are there or not. they dont' care if you sleep during the day because you work nights. they won't budge and help you in any way.
