Awful staff. Rent increase of $150 was ridiculous. Everyone is on section 8 and don't watch there kids. Found a large poop in the pool that sat there for days even took pics of it. This place sucked. Full Review ▶


My life has seen countries around the world and obviously have had to relocate many times. I have been a home owner and a renter. I recently found myself looking for yet another new place. We all know of the stress,… Full Review ▶


I am in the process of renewing my lease, something I wouldn't be doing if I weren't a satisfied resident at Manatee Cove. This complex provides a lot for a small price comparatively in this area. We are located less than… Full Review ▶


First I have to say my family and I have lived all over Brevard County and had good and bad experiences. I don't believe there is one place that is perfect with out problems, that would be paradise. Since we have… Full Review ▶


I've lived here for almost three years and they have done nothing differently to charge an almost $150 price increase, meanwhile they let the majority of the property is section 8 scum that has their drug dealing boyfriends living with them… Full Review ▶


At a first glance, the staff, communtiy and atmosphere seems like one of the greatest places to live. Once you move in you find out the truth about the property. The staff seems to be like a rotating door. In the… Full Review ▶


I have been here since April 2013. I have not had any trouble with management; however, I am not happy about them just coming in to do "checks" or to spray things without my being notified or being here. I have… Full Review ▶


I have lived in Manatee Cove apartments. They have a high turn over of staffing and also their apartment manager ----- was very unprofessional. They sent my account to an outside collection agency and I the staff didnt forward any information… Full Review ▶

I have enjoyed my tour with Manatee Cove. The girl who showed me was very nice (her name began with an R I think)and polite and the manager was very helpful. They both went out of their way to ensure that… Full Review ▶

I did apply and provided my application fee and what I was informed of a holding fee to keep the apartment I was interested in at the current price. Well needless, I have yet to hear from them regarding my money… Full Review ▶


I moved in here a year ago with my young daughter about a year ago. I must say, I did not know what I was getting myself into. The staff is. Has been incompetant from the start. I have held onto… Full Review ▶


I left town for a month told them where I was and how to get a hold of me in case of emergency. Well in that time they managed to evict me over $300 that I sent that they did not… Full Review ▶


my friend went to manatee cove to apply for residence. she is disabled and on a fixed income. after endless mountains of paperwork, she was told that she would have to go track down courthouse documents to prove that an old… Full Review ▶


1st of all I would like to say that I have lived at Manatee Cove Apts for 3 years and the mgmt has changed over at least 7 times. They fire office staff left and right. Why is it that they… Full Review ▶


I would not recommend this place to anybody. The apartments may be nice at first glance but once your there for awhile, their not what they seem. We were told that there would be new carpet, flooring, paint,etc.in the apartment we… Full Review ▶

Me and my family stopped in to check out Manatee Cove on Sat. July 17th looking for somewhere on east coast to settle in....we found the ammenities to be very satisfactory and they even had a festival going on that was… Full Review ▶


I love the place it good & quiet and near the beach. I've lived here for about six months and hope to not ever have to move again . The staff are helpful and always nice Full Review ▶


We moved here a little over 3 months ago, it feels like home already. I love our apartment. New carpet, ceramic tile, and the bedrooms on opposite sides, make privacy possible with my roommate. It did take a little longer than… Full Review ▶


I wouldn't waste your time with this place. At first when moving in it seemed okay but after a minute you start to really notice things. The people are rude, a bunch of little punks that think they run the place.… Full Review ▶


I've lived at Manatee Cove for the past 16 months and I really enjoy it. I read some of the reviews and can't believe that this is the same place where I live. The property is well maintained, the staff is… Full Review ▶


All i have to say is yes this place looks nice on the outside. But bust it open and you will find the rot inside. Drugs, criminals, fights, shoot outs, hood rats everywhere, kids running around all hours of the day… Full Review ▶


We've been living here since 2009 and it is very spacious. As far as the actual apartments are concerned we have never seen any problems and enjoy living here. Our biggest complaint is the towing company and their policies here. You… Full Review ▶


My Family and i have been here for two years, and can say that this place can not go downhill anymore then it is now, i have no problems with the Domestic disputes that go on at night, or the shoot… Full Review ▶


Do let the look fool you!!!!!!!!! This apt is by far one of the worst. The noise alone will try you crazy, I can actually hear my neighbors flush their toilet, thats how poorly these are constructed and if you live… Full Review ▶


This place has gone down hill in the last 6 months i have lived here. No one is made to pick up after their dog so you end up steping in it. Trash is everywhere. Adults don't even watch their own… Full Review ▶


This place has gone down hill...and fast! I've lived here from the beginning. Put up with 3 different office managers. They don't help you with your problems or complaints. They direct you to the cops if anything. I'm tired of living… Full Review ▶


for the hard times you cant beat the price for rent.The place is still new and the apartments inside are big.yes there is scumbags here but find me a place were there isnt any.The maintenance is kept up very well and… Full Review ▶


Do not move here unless you are coming from the hood. If you have a pink shiny car with sparkly rims and a grill then you belong here. I watched the security guard buy drugs and there was a drive by… Full Review ▶


The apartments and complex it self is beautiful, a joy to look at and live in. yet the LOW Lives that live and visit through all hours of the day,and night, make it excruciating and a annoying place to be. Management… Full Review ▶


this place is ridiculous. the management is disrespectful to it's tenants, will not listen to any concerns and acts as if they are better than you. the complex has break-ins on a regular basis, both of homes and vehicles, which the… Full Review ▶

im looking into moving in here with my GF. what is the income bracket you have to fit into? anyone know? any other heads ups will be appreciated. =) Full Review ▶


i love this apartment complex! you pay a VERY decent price for what you get! Most places charge way more than what i pay here! the apartments are brand new! i was the first one to live in my apartment. And… Full Review ▶


For the money it is not that bad. The apartments are brand new and nice. There is some crime in the area, however, that is true for almost any apartment you live in. It is not the best place I have… Full Review ▶


DO NOT live here unless you enjoy being surrounded by low-life's! This place is so horrible, that the local police department actually talks trash about it! They're constantly out there, and the manager doesn't know how to do her job. She… Full Review ▶

Anonymous and Docktor_Bradbury, why don't you both just shut up. Everyone on this forum is tired of your bitching and moaning. [You] both seem to be the only people I've heard from so far that have complained about beer bottles and… Full Review ▶


I am what you would call an original Manatee Cove resident. I was probably the 1st or 2nd resident to move in. Alot of people talk down on Manatee Cove, but all in all, if you have negative thoughts about the… Full Review ▶


You must understand that this apartment community caters to low income families. So, the "BAD ELEMENT" that some people claim reside in this community are not bad at all, they are REAL WORKING PEOPLE with families. Granted, most of the current… Full Review ▶


The apartments are actually nice and everything is new but the title floors, kitchen cabinets and kitchen counter tops are made from cheap materials. The community area looks nice as well, but what's bad about it is that a lot of… Full Review ▶


I recently visited manatee cove. Looks very nice. My only concern is the comments I read from residents. Bums, drug dealers and prostitutes! Call the police. Confront your property manager. Start evictions. Full Review ▶


DON'T EVER MOVE HERE!!!! Yea they seem nice and the people seem nice but don't be fooled. The manager doesn't care about you unless you're white and you are over the age of 25. The girls that work the front are… Full Review ▶


These apartments are horrible. They're in a bad part of town, where bums and prostitutes wander at all hours. The complex is surrounded by empty lots and vacant buildings that harbor this trash. The apartments themselves are new, and somewhat decent,… Full Review ▶


They are really nice. I took a look in there the other day because Im planning on moving in a few months. It's gorgeous, I was actually really shocked at first but I have to say them and the legendary at… Full Review ▶
