I have lived in Timberlake for about 3 years. Location : First off, it is in a wonderful location, near to 75, near to 301 and nestled in a country club area. It's about a 10 minute bike ride from a gorgeous park. If you enjoy bike rides or walks, this is a great complex to call home. Very, very quiet. Apartments are not huge, so it doesn't attract big families, which is a major plus to someone like myself who enjoys peace and privacy. Buildings : The buildings are from the 1980's, and they are beginning to show it in some areas. That's not to say the grounds are not well maintained, they are. It's just things are beginning to need repair simply due to age. The pools are both recently re-done (One in each 'Phase' of the complex) and well maintained. I'd like to add that in the 3 years I've resided here I've never seen a palmetto bug (big roach looking things with wings) in my apartment. This is Florida, and almost everywhere gets those things. I'm a clean person, but usually you run into these things. Absolutely 0 issue with parking, guests are able to part close to the units, without taking up a resident's spot (Front row of spaces for residents, rear row for others) Maintenance : I've had to contact maintenance 3 times in the 3 years I've lived here. Every time they make every effort to resolve my issue in a timely manner. I had my AC go out in August (on the weekend) and was fairly cranky about it. The next morning, someone was out there trying to fix my unit. When they were unable to, Adella delivered a portable AC unit (In the pouring rain, i might add) and set it up for us. Early Monday morning the expert staff showed up and resolved the issue. Management : I've lived in quite a few apartments over my life, and I will say that the management here is above average. The leasing agent (Jaime) made every effort to be upfront about terms and guidelines of the leases, willing to answer any questions. Anyone who is surprised by something in this lease did not take the time to properly understand it. I wasn't a huge fan of the up-charges for 'amenities', such as a view, or upgraded cabinets, but I was informed up front and made my decision knowingly. The property manager Suzy, every time I've had an issue she's taken a personal interest and followed up with me to make sure I was okay with the resolution. I've seen her in the grocery store, and she greets you with a smile. All in all, these are not brand new buildings, you may run into issues. Take the time to review the lease and make sure you understand it before committing. That being said, taking the good with the bad, Timberlake is a great place to live.
++ Location 0 average design of apartments. - Credit cards not accepted - is it 1980s or earlier? - Not covered parking under the trees. It means birds, branches - They show only the model apartments before moving in. - 200$ charges before processing for their work. You do not get anything for these money. - Bad office hours. Nobody in on saturday.
Love this place. Smaller floor plans attract mostly couples and singles, making for a quiet community. Staff listens and responds to any issues, and the place itself is in a good part of town.
I lived at Timberlake Apartments for 1 year and 7 months, I loved it! The staff was so courteous and professional and I had expert and fast service on all my needs. The apartments are clean and bright.
I have been a resident for almost a year and could not be more excited for my lease to expire. When I was apartment seeking the quoted price changes several times including on the day I was signing the lease when the rent jumped $30 because of some charges the leasing agent forgot to tell me about. The only internet available is bright house so be prepared for exorbitant rates and intermittent service. My air conditioning has not worked all year despite numerous house calls from the maintenance staff who insisted it was fine. I looked out my window to see my air conditioning unit was manufactured in 1987. 27 years old. Although they claim to have weekly pest control service my apartment was constantly infested with monstrous roaches. The toilet broke multiple times and would leak a disgusting green solid from the back of it. One time when I insisted my toilet was leaking the maintenance staff suggested I was just "splashing water" when I got out of the shower. The front office never provided me with a copy of my lease even though I asked for one repeatedly. At one point a poisonous coral snake infiltrated the apartment since the weather strip on the door was non existent. The worst news yet though is the dead animal that is somewhere in the walls permeating throughout the apartment. I look outside and there's a dead squirrel right behind my porch. The second dead squirrel I've seen since I've lived there, the first one was by the mailboxes. After a horrific year when I got the notice to resign they had the audacity to inform me they were increasing the rent considerably. Counting down the seconds until I move out.
