ABSOULTELY HORRIBLE PLACE TO LIVE. To keep it very brief, I was a tenant there in 2012. I am still so angry with this place that I decided to write a review almost 2 years later when I saw their ad online. I had a 1/1apartment for $615 per month. I found out I was pregnant while living there, and I ended up breaking my lease. I am a property manager myself, so yes, I realize this was a mistake on my part. This was not the problem though. They submitted me to collections for FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS because they claimed I had a pet that soiled all over the carpet, I left furniture in the apartment after I left, and ended up EVICTING me because I did not turn the key in. Let me state that I DO NOT (NOR HAVE I EVER) owned a pet. I lived there with my boyfriend. We had NO pets. We also took ALL of our furniture...hence the breaking of the lease. We moved to a bigger apartment for our expanding family. Lastly, WE LEFT THE APARTMENT. Breaking your lease means LEAVING. I do not understand why they believed they could evict a tenant from an empty apartment. They key was left in the mailbox. I called Jutta at Baytree and asked what was going on when I began to receive harassing phone calls from "Profe$$ional Debt Collectors" (yes, that is literally the business name) and Jutta said she refused to talk to me. I asked what the hell was going on, because they were accusing me of having a pet that ruined their apartment, being evicted, etc. She stated that they had pictures of everything and that I would need to talk to the Duval county sheriff. I asked her to go ahead and forward me the pictures along with a SERVED copy of an eviction notice, as an eviction is NOT legal without these begin provided. She hung up on me. I PRAY THAT NO ONE DECIDES TO LIVE HERE. Rent is cheap and everything, but the management is absolute scum. As I said, I myself and in property management and we could NEVER "evict" a tenant that breaks a lease. It is illegal. These people are disgusting.
Absolutely the most horrifying experience in my life. There's cockroach problems, too many issues with the outside and inside of the apartments to list. I've had an ongoing problem with my air conditioner for 4 months now with no fix. My electricity bills are going over $200 for a 2 bedroom apartment which is absolutely insane. The maintenance supervisor is rude, has a huge temper and is not to be trusted. He nearly ran over one of the leasers with his truck because he was upset that he had settled an issue with her rugs that they tore up from removing her vanity, offered sexual favors to a few woman to fix their apartment, slammed my front door open which intern put a huge dent in my wall. We were lied to and omitted information before we moved in. There's a night club across the street that they forgot to mention. The washers and dryers don't work half the time. The office manager needs to learn proper business etiquette's. My apartment is only $699 a month but after everything's said and done I might as well have rented from a newer luxury apartment for $800 to $900 a month. Would've equaled out to what I'm paying now and wouldn't have all the stress, heartache, headaches, and sleepless nights. Not to mention I have medical issue's and have medical equipment I can't use in 90 to 100 degree weather. Please don't rent from here, if you do don't say I didn't warn you.
