I've been at Balcones Club for five years. We basically picked the apartment as it is the ONLY apartment complex in the school zone for an AMAZING elementary school. The problem is, they know this and take advantage of it. At… Full Review ▶

Easily the WORST place I have ever lived. Do you hate privacy? Want someone in your apt. 1-4 times a month? This place sends out vague notices only 1 day in advance that they will enter your residence and perform some… Full Review ▶

I moved there blindly from another state, was a bit worried about the actual look and condition. Although the community is dated, the inside of the apartment is not that bad. It's an average place, and it's what you make of… Full Review ▶

THE STAFF ARE AWFUL. Lets start at the top. The 'manager', --------- ranks as one of the most unhelpful, sarcastic, patronizing and fake people I have ever met. Totally useless in any kind of common sense when it comes to anything… Full Review ▶

They have no problem leasing you an apartment that smells like a dead body!!! Found out about 2 months after moving in that the previous tenant had past away inside my apartment, the body went undiscovered for about 3-4 weeks. Texas… Full Review ▶

This apartment complex is ok. Just ok. It's old, but the rent seemed reasonable, noting the conditions, I found it worthwhile. New management is pretty sorry, but adequate enough. I don't expect cartwheels. Also, please note I did not say that… Full Review ▶

After having nothing but trouble with management (numerous requests to come into the apartment, 5 times in two weeks) just to "view" the apartment, we finally got to move out. We were switching to a month-to-month lease which has a 30-day… Full Review ▶

I would not recommend this apartment to anyone based on the low quality of living and lack of follow through on fixing any problem that requires some work.

When we originally moved in the place was well priced and seemed nice. The… Full Review ▶

In most ways, I recommend this apartment complex. But there is one, very serious problem that will ruin the whole experience: The management staff.

More specifically, they do not return phone calls or even answer the phone with any sort of… Full Review ▶

This place is noisy. Poorly built noisy. Not sure why, but it is loud in these units. Plus, there is no staircase, so your neighbors enter their apartment thru your living room. Very noisy. Parking is poor. Pool is tiny. Most… Full Review ▶
