I came down to San Antonio to start a new life for me and my daughter. I stayed with a friend in the Dymaxion Apartments until I was able to find my own place. She insisted I get an apartment in Dymaxion, but I just could not. My daughter LOVES to go swimming and play outside, as most children do. These apartments are defiantly NOT KID FRIENDLY! There so called swimming pool is the most disgusting this I have ever seen! They do not even have a playground for the children!!! We made friends with some people that lived next door in the Westover Oaks Apartments and they have everything you can ask for! The price is a bit higher but you get what you pay for!!!! Don't go with Dymaxion. They think they are doing something by renovating the apartments and raising the rent but they are missing the entire outdoors!!! Even the staff at Westover calls them the eye sore of the neighborhood... I'm signing up with Westover because at least they have there stuff together. Word of advise to the decision makers at Dymaxion Apartments. Stop thinking about maximizing profits by doing the least possible and raising rates. Build a playground , put some money into that pool (rusted gates), build some areas for a nice family bar b que, and start tending to the people that make you money! Even one of the maintenance guys said they had a company that was going to build a new pool, but that they said no because it was to expensive. Cheap people... DO NOT MOVE IN HERE!
i do not like this apartment, they have mold in their tub, a/c leaks, the top shelf closet is about to give up, they have old appliances, the whole apartment is not well insulated.. during winter is terrible because the cold air gets inside, the thermostat is not accurate at all, the whole entire 9 months i stayed here the water was always off countless times, december 31, 2014 they turned off the water without notice, and its been off for about 28 hours, i called the maintenance during their non office hours and they replied "ma'am, what do you want me to do? i can't do nothing about your water being turned off.." totally rude, and plus their toilets is always clogged everyday, even if i call the maintenance, its pointless because all they do is plunged it, and two days later its clogged again... its really terrible apartment, they need to get these apartments buldozed and build a newer one.
the best location ever lol !! love living here and Gloria the manager is awesome !!
The bad and the ugly Stove has had one too many mexican food dinners made (but still works fine), dishwasher has been inoperable for about six months (i've been too lazy to call for replace/repair), surface mold in the bathroom, which i'm not too concerned about (i did my research). I do have concerns how billing statements/accounting system works. I was told by the office manager that if you pay over the minimum payment but less than $1, the overage goes "just disappears into thin air". I reviewed my payments with the manager (and yes, she showed me the screen). There was no accountability or reflection of the overages in their system. (Please refer to the good below.) The Good No loud neighbors, maintenance responds quickly, the management office will work with you. As mentioned above in the accountability of the disappearing money, even though i didn't agree with it, i accepted their answer. I calculated the amount i should have paid more throughout the months but my calculations were incorrect, according to them, hence my review of their billing practices. They went ahead and adjusted late fees and shortage amount which totaled $80+, they may have well did this to avoid further questions and possible litigation. Final Recommendation Overall, this place isn't that bad. Outside of the bathroom issue and old appliances, I'd recommend the place to anyone looking to live in the NW side of SA for such a cheap price. Comparable apartments in the area will run $200-$300 more. I
Management is pretty cool. The area is quiet and the maintenance men are pretty much responsive as far as my calls were concerned. Only thing bad is that all the appliances are from 1985. WTF
