Lived there for a year. Horrible front office staff, especially their assistant manager. She is very rude and talks bad about you in Spanish (she thought I did not know how to speak Spanish). The condition of the apartment was horrible as well. It constantly smelt bad, even if you cleaned the place like crazy. The AC unit looked like it was from the 70's and had to be constantly worked on. Trash was not a clean thing at all, they were usually over filled and left like that for weeks. The parking situation is a joke. The front gate was broken for a year at least (don't know if it still is or not). The pool is rarely cleaned and usually filled with urine. Last, for what that place is worth it is very over priced. I do not recommend this place to anyone. If you are trying to find a good place to live, stay away from this dump.
Hi just to said I am very happy with the Avesta Capella Apartment and with the office experience I am so glad to rent in that apartments. Thank you Yadira for the great work at the office. I recommend the apartments .
DO NOT LIVE HERE! I repeat, DO NOT MOVE INTO AVESTA CAPELLA! This review is as of July 23, 2015. Management is shady and no one in the office will ever be able to help you. Not to mention, the "manager" (who's somehow a man and a woman depending on who you speak with which makes you wonder if they even exist) is never in and doesn't even have a number to be reached at. I've had nothing but hell since moving in. First they didn't have my apartment ready on move-in day (I actually had to call APD for them to give me my keys). Then I've had problem after problem with maintenance concerns (pest control mainly). Once maintenance even entered my apartment without informing me and left the apartment unlocked and unattended. After all of that, my lease is up in August and I've been asking for a renewal form since June. I finally got the renewal form on JULY 20th and it states I have to give 60 day notice for vacating the apartment (but remember they only gave me the renewal form July 20th). Not to mention they refused to put a screen door on my patio door, they haven't fixed the front gate in months and the "security" doesn't even do their job. They may make one trip around the complex and that's it. Let's also add that they have the worst parking rules an apartment can have. They claim its for safety but hasn't fixed the front gate since the near year started. The ENTIRE complex has to share maybe 15-20 visitor parking spaces. And please do let a friend or family member visit, Avesta has to have a deal with J&J Towing because they're always trolling trying to tow someone's car. Now about the laundry sites. There are two laundry sites in the complex, however for some reason the one of the back near my building is always closed. The front office staff have the keys to open it and just won't. Also, they installed new machines that now require a card (the card is $5 and only comes with $2 on it) WITHOUT informing residents. When asked why we weren't informed the front office staff told me they did't know they had to inform us (-___-). Also, you can only get the cards in the front office. This means you can only get the card during business hours. Once again, DO NOT LIVE HERE. There are better options in Austin that are still affordable! Trust me! I'm a recent graduate and I wanted to save money. I've found way better options with the same rent prices or maybe a bit higher (but you get what you pay for). Don't make the same mistake.
they always say they did not receive money for the utility and need to pay twice. If something breaks down in your apartment, they do not repair at all.. l live here from july 2015.
Moving here was my first apartment so there was Alot that i didnt know much about. I worked with Michelle in the office, made me feel very welcomed and gave me much information that was very detailed so i never had any questions. i am in the with the loft apartment that i moved into, its spaceous and it was very clean and i was able to move in a day after my application. I am very pleased so far.
