I love it here! Moved in from Phoenix last year and haven't regretted it! The views are incredible, the ambiance is serene, and the apartments themselves look and feel brand new. And the carpet is like walking on little plush pillows… Full Review ▶

No star is really what this apartment complex deserves. I rented a 3bd 2ba apartment for 7 months. My apartment was certainly outdated and definitely needed some remodel work. Coming to Tucson unprepared, I was in need of an apartment with… Full Review ▶

Maintenance is horrible. Especially the red head guy. They show you a model for a reason what you see is NOT what you get. One of my clients recently moved there and the move in was so stressful. Social worker even… Full Review ▶

The office staff (Debra, ------- and Helen) are all terrific. They are very nice and work very hard to be accommodating to everyone. They made the move-in process very easy, and even when I had to move out early and my… Full Review ▶

As someone who travels often for work, I have experienced the entire spectrum of apartment living in many states. Bear Canyon is a cut above average. My apartment was clean and well-maintained with newer appliances and fixtures, maintenance and the office… Full Review ▶

First off: no scorpions! I've been a tenant for three years (through two changes in ownership) and would recommend it wholeheartedly. The walls are very well insulated - I rarely even hear my neighbor's alarm clock. The staff (especially Helen) are… Full Review ▶

The place is great but the management is the worst. I don't really need them for anything but when I did they took a month to help me fix the smallest things in my apartment. These reviews are right on the… Full Review ▶

I loved my apartment while I lived in Tucson! The pool is beautiful, as are the mountain views. It's a bit far east, but worth it in my opinion. It is very safe! The gates always worked when I lived there.… Full Review ▶

These apartments are located directly north of a partly vacant shopping center. The area appears to be fairly safe for single women. The grounds are well kept by the landscaping crew, but I felt the interior of my apartment showed a… Full Review ▶

Hmm. Where to start. First, the worst. I would say that the management is terrible at best, with the exception of -------, who can be professional. We had a situation that involved a lack of integrity and some barefaced lying with… Full Review ▶

As noted parking is at a premium. When management is notified that someone is in your spot you get the old " we'll put a note on the car". Conflicting information from different employees. When you let them know that you're… Full Review ▶

This place isn't the absolute worst place in the world, but it's damn sure close. I can tolerate a mid-grade living space and all, but the parking lot and the management make this place unbearable. First off, there is never any… Full Review ▶

I've read a number of reviews here this evening and agree that things could be better and that things have gone down with the new management. Strong suggestion: Darlene should institute a tenant suggestion form (send out to all the apartments)… Full Review ▶

Reasons why to not rent here: Darlene will have your car towed to the tune of $220. I parked along the walkway for 17 mins while I unloaded groceries and my 2 yr old and was towed. Darlene said she didn't… Full Review ▶

Nice set of apartments, pretty spacious for an apartment. I loved the vaulted ceiling. The walk to the pools and mailboxes could be a bit long from some parts. The pools weren´t bad, but could have benefitted from more frequent cleanings.… Full Review ▶
