Moved in to a remodeled unit recently, despite what I read here. There is new management who have been very responsive to any issue that I have had so far, which have been few. They seem to be engaged in what… Full Review ▶

Not just a disgusting slum, but the most awful (so called) Management you never want to imagine. There are a handful of good people that live there, but the list of reasons not to is virtually endless. Between the plumbing leaks,… Full Review ▶

Wow. I nearly rented this apartment recently and was almost scammed by the manager who tried to tell me that the bad reviews were from tenants she had to evict. What a bullet I dodged. I was going to rent it… Full Review ▶

If you want to live in hell, come live here! Management lies about everything they promise prior to move in. ------ the on site manager is an alcoholic who spends most of her days playing games on computer, and drinks when… Full Review ▶

Stay away from Crack Towers, or any other property managed by these people. I lived in Whispering Palms for about 5 months, and also Cornerstone. A windstorm came through that literally tore the tar paper off the roof, never fixed. When… Full Review ▶

Horrible place to live. I can not believe the city, county, who ever is in charge of this kind of stuff lets them stay open. Why do you think they keep having to change the name of the building? The only… Full Review ▶

I came to this place early this year in 2013 after I couldn't get in contact with the leasing manager in Dec. 2012. When I came into the office, I met with a mid-age lady name ----- and her housekeeper ---------------------… Full Review ▶

I lived at Whispering Palms and it was a eye opener to the fact that renters don't have any rights and the manager knows this. She has no concept of telling the truth or having any morals. I lived with my… Full Review ▶

The manager does not follow through with her promises. Comes across as being untrustworthy and unreliable. With a place this size needs to put forth more effort in making sure that the pool is sanitary, the residents are following all of… Full Review ▶

1st: DO NOT MOVE TO WHISPERING PALMS!! I'm not one to put much stock into reviews, because, frequently, they are written by tenants with a grudge or mgmt. trying to rehabilitate the horrible reputation of this property. But, based upon my… Full Review ▶

I previously wrote a favorable review of this place, primarily because the resident mangers were doing a fine job of upgrading and changing the resident complexion. It no longer deserved the nick name of "crack towers". The management company terminated the… Full Review ▶

It is an older complex, but now managed by a friendly and energetic couple that also make this place their home. It is average in appearance, but I'm betting it won't stay that way for long. Very pet friendly - two… Full Review ▶

Although the apartment is large and roomy and the landscaping is decent, the company is slip-shod in their dealings with both the management and the residents..Serious issues like Roof leaks and broken sliding door latches are pushed aside, I personally have… Full Review ▶

Save yourself and do no rent at an apartment in this slum. The few normal and law abiding residnets have either already moved out or are on the way out. The only people that want to remain are the drugged out… Full Review ▶

Moved in to find many defective appliances and fixtures. Management and owners take months to make repairs when and if they feel like doing it at all. Many of the residents are low income or are on disability and are afraid… Full Review ▶

They are now known as Whispering Palms. The owners are slumlords! They hardly fix things in the apartments. There are three boarded up windows on the complex, holes in some windows, three with no tresspassing signs, and trash everywhere. These apartments… Full Review ▶
