Great Place To Live! I have lived In Emerald Lake for a number of years and I have found that all the amenities provided are fantastic. It is a gated community, with a fantastic staff, a guard at night, a pool,… Full Review ▶

ThThe two reviews below are very deceptive. One just moved in and really should not say anything until has been here for a while. The other one seems like it was written by the staff itself. This place is the worst.… Full Review ▶

My apartment living experience at Emerald Lakes has been absolutely remarkable. The office/maintenance staff are very prompt and attentive. Kathie, Gina and Daphne have always gone above and beyond to see that needs of the community are met. Full Review ▶

Everything in the apartment complex has been pretty average. Nothing spectacular, but nothing to laugh at either. I've lived here for 2 years now. It's a typical apartment. Maintenance takes a little longer than I would like sometimes, but when I… Full Review ▶

The management will smile to your face then laugh at you behind your back. The walls are extremely thin. I can hear conversations at normal tone, microwaves beeping, urinating, doors closing, and people having sex. Bed squeeking, girl moaning, everything. There… Full Review ▶

It's not just Emerald Lakes that is built so cheaply. ALL of GrayHawk's projects are, all the way up to Magnolia Place in Gainesville. They use the cheapest material to build the walls yet charge an insane amount in rent [or… Full Review ▶
