The leasing office is nice enough and willing to help in most cases. The maintenance staff seems nice but have no clue what they're doing. They almost always have to come back a 2nd time and even then most of the… Full Review ▶

I have lived at many apartment communities and Island Club, part of Gables corp., is by far the worst property management I have ever dealt with - maintenance requests are timely but not addressed appropriately and require frequent additional requests. usually… Full Review ▶

Don't pay attention to the previous recommendation - Bernadine has not worked at Island Club for a year, so clearly it is a cut and paste written by management. The apartments here are fair and relatively safe and clean - it's… Full Review ▶

I wish I would have read the reviews before moving here. This place is a dump. 1) They have terrorists living in their apartments that terrorize the neighborhood and steal your property. 2) Maintenance is a joke. They don't know how… Full Review ▶

The good part is that it is pretty quiet and the layout of the apartments are pretty good. My problem is with the local management. Unresponsive and somewhat dishonest are probably the fairest terms. Make sure whatever they tell you when… Full Review ▶
