Living here was not a good experience. At all. The rent kept going up about $50 every six months. The staff is polite but useless. Needed repairs hardly ever happen, and when they do it takes a long time and many… Full Review ▶

Would not recommend living here. They keep raising the rent as if Denver is the next New York City. I frequently have to deal with lawnmowers and jackhammers at 8 in the morning. I have complained but was told that they… Full Review ▶

Crap, keep looking. The property does not shovel the snow on the stairs at all, I had birds or squirels living above my bedroom, and the price is way to high for the apts. Full Review ▶

Bear Valley Village is a decent place to rent overall. However, BVV's claims internet service is "free", but obviously it is not--you are paying for it with part of your rent. BVV's internet service network administration is horrible: (i) connections always… Full Review ▶

Holy crap, this place is awful.

Absolutely terrible.

Drug dealers, and trashy people are everywhere.
