I have lived at The Breakers for about 3 years now. I enjoy the quiet area in which my apartment is located and I greatly enjoy walking around the lake early in the morning. The size of the grounds really allows me to find places where I can be alone and take in the nature without feeling like I'm... well... living in an apartment complex. Elizabeth, one of the managers for the Oyster Keys subdivision has gone above and beyond any time that I have ever needed a thing. She has really brought a level of attention and caring that wasn't there from previous managers. With so many units to manage and so many people coming and going I was really impressed when I walked in on one of her first days and she knew me by name and what apartment I lived in before I ever had a chance to introduce myself. Since then she has helped me out with EVERYTHING that I have ever needed and has always been extremely friendly and knowledgeable while doing so. I have continued to renew my lease at The Breakers because to me, the friendliness that I get from Elizabeth and some of the other staff makes it truly feel like home.
I have tried not to give these BASTARDS a one star review for well over a year, only because they have yet to earn the one lousy star I am forced to give, but I now have no choice! I do not know a worst managed property! Such HORRIBLE service for ridiculously high rents and CAM fees is outrageous! DON'T MOVE HERE if you can avoid it! It is the ghetto of Denver, hands down! And do not be fooled by the appearance of the grounds the sham amenities and the promise of "home". I wish I could record the fight going on outside as we speak, which is a weekly event in this hell hole! And, do not expect to have any maintenance issues resolved! SOME of the same issues we had in Feb 2014 were resolved in March and April of 2015, some I am STILL waiting! Now my fridge is going out and apparently that is not anything they need to come fix a week after the request was submitted! SMH!!! In Feb of 2014 I told them the H2O does not work properly, you cannot take a full shower without adjusting the water temp constantly and even then you run out of hot water! Just to find out a year later that my power bill has been over $250 per month because the hot water hear had been leaking the whole time! They FINALLY replaced it. I HATE THIS PLACE IS SUCH AN UNDERSTATEMENT! I have a HUGE list of issue I could post here, but they simply do not care, as indicated by the horrible reviews they already have and they STILL wish to do nothing to resolve issues! I hope they go bankrupt when this market crashes!
I read a lot of the reviews of the Breakers and felt compelled to throw in my two cents. I became a resident of the Breakers in the past month and absolutely love it. I live in "The Gold Coast" and Charlene, the Village Manager, has been nothing but fantastic. Always polite and professional -and our service requests have been completed quickly and efficiently. Move-in was a breeze, completing most of the paperwork before coming into the complex. The biggest challenges we had was choosing a floor plan - they vary so widely. We ultimately decided on a great two-bedroom and have found the space perfect. We have found the complex quiet and peaceful - having recently moved from the heart of downtown Denver, this was a welcome change. I'm glad we made the move to The Breakers and I would recommend checking out the complex if you are considering a move to this area.
BEWARE! Terrible management! After living at the Breakers for nearly 3 years in Gold Coast without having many problems or causing any problems, but listening to neighbors complain about management etc we can now see some flaws after our move out. If we would have known that we were going to get charged a standard cleaning fee we would not have wasted out time cleaning our place before we left. When we first moved into our place in Gold Coast our place wasn't spotless or clean and noted this on our check in sheet. We usually dealt with Daniela because Brandi was always hiding in her office and never had a clue what was going on with anything in Gold Coast. PS - If you cannot find one of the mangers during regular hours just walk out back to the pool they are usually chain smoking their cigs..
Please don't move here. The management is terrible. In my case, they required a 60 day move out notice, however I never received a rental renewal rate. Ever! They play this double standard to try and squeeze a few extra dollars out of you. Then I paid $20 extra per month to live on the 3rd floor only to receive constant pounding from my 2nd floor neighbors for merely walking around my apartment and cooking dinner. I'm not sure who to blame, but getting a knock on the door for "disturbing the peace" is not a very comforting thing when all you've done is walk around inside your home. I've never felt so un-at home than at the Breakers. Update: Just so I don't sound like a complete troll, the office workers at Gold Coast were actually very helpful and professional. It's the upper "invisible" management I have issues with.
