I have lived at Tamarack Woods for 6 months now and being a newly divorced male (after owning a home for 29 yrs), I was concerned about the noise. As this is a family complex, yes there are kids around, so you can expect some noise, but it hasn't been bad as far as the kids go. They also allow pets here so occasionally you might have a neighbor that has a dog--which happened to me. I complained to management and they took action and the neighbor has elected to move out. They have also responded immediately (within 24 hrs) to any maintenance request: Toilet, faucet, heat, A/C, etc. They do have two onsite laundry facilities, 2 pools, 2 basketball courts, so that is nice. No dishwasher, had to provide own refrigerator. They also recently replaced the water heaters in many of the buildings so the older posts about that issue have been resolved. No problems with hot water. Overall, I would rate the amenties as average, but management (Krissy & Vu) have been excellent at responding to me, so I rated Tamarack Woods above average overall.
