Do not move in here. They will show you the model and when you go to move in, the apartment will look DRASTICALLY different. The cabinets are falling apart. The countertop over the dishwasher is crumbling. The appliances are very old.… Full Review ▶

Well, I just moved out after one year of leasing in this horrible place. I rate it a 0/10. It is an old, dilapidated wood-sided conglomerate of old stale buildings, which are overrun with mold, roaches, ants and even BEDBUGs. Yes,… Full Review ▶

The grounds outside buildings 4633 and 4635 are absolutely disgusting. Every morning the parking lot has discarded fast food restaurant bags, cups, and sometimes even food. On New Year's Day, chocolate milk in a bottle was thrown out in the parking… Full Review ▶

Woods Edge Apartments look great - nice units, some good amenities (like sunrooms, forested grounds, playground and pool) - but the terrible management really soured our experience of living here. The policies are greedy, unaccomodating, and unreasonable. Your car may be… Full Review ▶

Spacious and quiet, a far better deal than any of the so-called luxury apartments that line I-40. They didn?t cut the forest down to build this complex, so you?re surrounded by nature. You?re also a stone?s throw from Woodcroft, which is… Full Review ▶
