This is the most beautiful apartment complex I've ever seen. It looks like a Palm Springs resort. All apartments come with all appliances. Granite counter tops, generous balconies/patios. Pool and spa area are top notch. You feel like you're on vacation… Full Review ▶

Serenade is beautiful on the outside. It is wonderfully landscaped and well taken care of. The apartment units themselves are nicer than most but feel a bit cramped even when empty (2bed/2bath). This doesn't bother me much but if I had… Full Review ▶
