We have lived here almost 3 years, and have had a good experience with no real issues. We like our apt. It really depends on what building/part of the complex you live in, and also your neighbors as to how you… Full Review ▶

I have no idea who is writing these positive reviews. Must be a lucky few, or management (what's left of them ). At least 3 people I know complained to BSC Holdings Corporate office about Trina and Melinda, because they were… Full Review ▶

This is an extremely poorly operated and managed property. When we moved in there was a horrible bug problem, the storage room on the balcony had 20 spiders and bugs in it. Despite being told that this would be taken care… Full Review ▶

The management is so disorganized its not funny. The management is also rude! The property manager Trina Lynch refused to give me the corporate number so I could complain on the entire management staff. Lynch told me in a snotty way… Full Review ▶

This place is a dump. started out not so bad, but after a year, the management was replaced and unfortunately not for the better. They are disorganized, don't care about anything except getting their money, they are rude and they treat… Full Review ▶

Rented this apartment from august 2011 to may 2012. It was horrible. One of the main reasons we rented this apartment was because of the pool. It was never open. When we moved in there was no hot water. It took… Full Review ▶

Moved into apartment in 2009. First year was pretty good. Decent parking, great neighbors, staff was courteous. 2010 things started to fall apart. New upstairs neighbors are complete trash. A man with a probably 16 yr old son who weighs maybe… Full Review ▶

Horrible Experience! We had a "non-smoking" apt that reeked of cigarette smoke when we moved in and every evening cigarette smoke would poor in through our neighbors stove vent. It was very noisy. You can hear when your neighbor goes to… Full Review ▶

Do not go by the reviews in the internet. My best advice is to go and see the place your self. Ask questions to the residents, that is what I did and every resident said that it is a great place.… Full Review ▶

This is literally the worst apartment complex in Asheville. If you can avoid them at any cost please do. The apartments themselves are ALRIGHT at best. Lets start with parking, you are aloud to have two cars per apartment, but God… Full Review ▶

I lived at Kensington Place for about 3 and 1/2 years. Clearly they had some issue with my "pedigree" from the outset and were extraordinarily rude. (Should have been my first clue).

Kensington Place let us down, big time. We needed to move to Asheville from Atlanta, and fast (1.5 weeks). We had little time to mess around and the staff at Kensington made us feel like we'd be okay. Not so.

Halfway though… Full Review ▶

Overall:
My husband and I have lived here for a year and a half and have found it to be very average, but overall a decent place to live. The rent is high for the quality of the apartments, though. The apartments… Full Review ▶

This place is not worth the money. Go down the street to Cranbrook Apartments or The Forest. The construction on Long Shoals Rd. is a small price to pay to leave this ghetto apartment. We had an admitted drug dealer living… Full Review ▶

After reading the other reviews I was shocked that so many people were that honest. The maintenance people almost refuse to do their jobs correctly unless you watch over them like children. There is almost always garbage on the grounds because… Full Review ▶

WE lived here for 6 months and left. Ugh! They don't enforce any of their rules! Kids run rampant especially in the 3 bedroom apts. I tripped over toys all the time. They drew on the exterior walls, screamed their heads… Full Review ▶

They play many games! I lived there for many years. To claim the grounds are neat and clean is one thing, but I had to trim the bushes outside my apartment to see out the windows. Let's talk about walking out… Full Review ▶
