Let me start out by saying these are the WORST apartments I've lived in. This place is nasty, ghetto, cheap, infested with insects and the staff and maintenance suck! You had to make an appt. for maintenance work but good luck getting ahold of the office and when you do you have to wait till a Wednesday to get anything fixed. What they do the other 6 days I have no clue. The office staff is very rude and talk to you like your dumb. I had my truck broken into while living there. Our neighbor brought in bed bugs and they didn't fumigate till the next week. The tennis court is now a storage area. The pool is nasty and people that do not even live there go there. I could keep going but hopefully you get the point. DO NOT RENT FROM THIS PLACE!!
I love it here I have a baby and I never have a problem with my neighbors or the office.!
They have false advertisement they say there is a tennis court but there isn't they use it for a storage place they say they have 2 pools they only use one and the other one is shut down
As someone who has lived here for 5 years and prides myself on being an individual who wants things done right and NEEDS a safe, reliable place to live, allow me to give an accurate review. Fountain Park South is a wonderful place to live in a very safe city (Southgate). The grounds are always beautiful and immaculate; you won't find better landscaping and in the winter, the sidewalks and parking lot are always shoveled and salted early in the morning. There is a security truck that drives around the property - or, at least, there was, but it wasn't blatant that it was security so you still have to be cautious and use common sense and lock your vehicles and don't keep electronic equipment out in the open where anyone can see. I live in the "red" buildings and noise is an issue, as is the purity of the air. These apartments are bigger, but we share a furnace so if one person smokes, the whole building will smell it. That is the unfortunate part. I've been lucky to have really great neighbors who don't smoke and my sister who lives with me is kind enough to go outside and smoke in her car rather than in the apartment. The office staff does seem to change often, but Sara (apartment assistant manager) and the apartment manager are both super nice and are willing to work out any issues with you as long as you are rational and know the law. There are a lot of options in terms of signing a lease, including a "Freedom Clause" which allows you to break your lease without penalty (for a fee, of course). What other complexes offer that? There really isn't too much of a bug issue, other than the normal "seasonal" spider and centipede problems, but if you call the office, they will have pest control come to your apartment AND outside for no charge. Maintenance is super nice and always out to fix things very quickly. However, if it's something that requires a return visit, good luck; I still have closets that don't close from when I moved in! Parking can be an issue, depending on what apartment building you live in. All in all, I love Fountain Park South and it'll be hard to find a place that is as safe, accommodating and comfortable.
My daughter, son-in-law, 2 year old granddaughter and baby grandson lives here. They constantly have to breath pot smoke due to the fact that a neighbor smokes it and it fills the whole apartment complex up with the smell. My grandchildren have to already use a nebulizer due to upper respitory issues when they are sick. Now they found a house to rent and it&amp;#39;s only one month before their lease is up and yes they have told the office on numerous occasions about the pot smell and nothing has ever been done, now the manager wants them to pay the last months rent even though they will already be in their new place and even though they&amp;#39;ve had all the problems that they&amp;#39;ve had. This is very wrong. They even had their GPS stolen right out of their SUV that was right out front of their apartment. Bad place to move! By the way last summer some creep was watching every move my daughter and her little girl made while her husband wasn&amp;#39;t home. He live in the same building , thank God he wasn&amp;#39;t there long! Don&amp;#39;t move here especially with kids!
