Bayberry Hill Estates is an excellent place to call home. Neighbors are friendly and it is geared toward family living, not a party place. The community is extremely safe and located near any and all shopping and commuter rail/buses. The grounds… Full Review ▶

I have had fluctuating feelings about these apartments. The fact that 5 of my friends are leaving Bayberry this year, is in itself a testimony of the horror the management brings upon you as a resident. Staff is very helpful, yet… Full Review ▶

All these 5/5 positive reviews are possibly from the company or leasing staff. It's absolutely impossible for this this place to get such a good rating. Either that or Bayberry is only mistreating certain groups of people. That's even worse. This… Full Review ▶

This is a terrible place. Where to begin? 1) Sign a lease at your peril. The minute you sign, the gloves come off. Also, expect a 10-25% increase in your rent after the first "promotional" year. 2) There are rats and… Full Review ▶
