This place was the worst, and i mean the most deplorable, horrible place i have ever lived. I would prefer to sleep in a dumspter, than reside in this landfill.When i moved in the carpet was still filthy, and it took… Full Review ▶

I have lived here for a few months now and, in regard to the reviews I just read, they are still renting because I do. The maintenance has been very responsive and I have not had a bad experience yet. The… Full Review ▶

Being a first time renter it was really appealing (the deal and the managers), then came the deposit, which since I hadn't rented before I had to cough up an entire month's rent for a refundable-deposit ($875). Then the maintenance problems… Full Review ▶

I've been living here for about a year now.. and honestly, I don't have very many bad things to say about the place. I got a decent rate for my apt. and they waived my move in fees / deposit. I… Full Review ▶

The person who stated they are no longer renting is incorrect. They have turned many of the apartments into condos, but they are still renting a portion of them. I know for a fact they are taking new leases right now.

Once you lease the appartment and if you complain about something then respinse is very bad. As if they sold the appartment to you and now you are responsible for everything. Full Review ▶

I live @ this apartment for years. Paid my rent on time was a great resident. On my 3rd year the residental manager came to my door, and stated they wasn't going to renew my lease. So at that time I… Full Review ▶

I lived there for the past two years and was disappointed when they went Condo. Being a single father with a 6 year old daughter, I simply couldn't afford the mortgages to stay. This was a very nice place to live… Full Review ▶

I live in Penderbrook for about eight months and never really had a problem (except with the person who subleased my place when I left). The office staff is really nice and I became good friends with them. Maintenance is always… Full Review ▶

If you are not planning to purchase the apartment home you currently live in, stop by Summit Fair Lakes located at 12565 Summit Manor Drive in Fairfax. Located on the corner of Monument Drive and Fairfax County Parkway. We will be… Full Review ▶

Do not move here. The walls are paper thin. If you live on the middle floor, you will hear EVERY step the folks upstairs take. Location? HAHAHA! Listen, folks, unless you don't mind wearing earplugs to avoid listening to the conversation… Full Review ▶

Things have ben very nice. But they are changing. The maintenance people say they are getting ready to sell or convert to condos. Apartment maintenance is declining. I have this black mold growing in two spots in my apartment. I've tried… Full Review ▶

I had only about 5 minutes of hot water and was told that it was because the weather outside was so cold. Now its summer and I still only get 5 minutes of hot water! Yuck! Also, the windows are in… Full Review ▶

Go elsewhere to get your money's worth. This place has significantly gone downhill since I moved in. The maintenance is slow to respond. Several times I've had to call 2 or 3 times to get someone to come out and fix… Full Review ▶

I thoroughly enjoyed living at this complex. I lived there longer than anywhere else I've ever lived. I never had parking problems, but looking around, I could see that others in other parts of the complex might. Maintenance was always top… Full Review ▶

I have been living at Penderbrook for almost 4 years now...thank god I´m moving this year when my lease is up. The first three years were pretty good. Whenever I called maintenance they always responded quickly. However the past year has… Full Review ▶

I don´t understand what all the complaints are about. My experience was a great one living at Penderbrook Apartments. Sure, nothing is perfect but I didn´t have any major problems. The rent is a bit steep, but you´re paying for location.The… Full Review ▶

Penderbrook has its good points, nice staff, nice gym, no problems with parking but it also has its bad points. First off the apartments are VERY VERY small I pay $900 for around 560sq feet. We have NO ROOM. We can´t… Full Review ▶

I have a friend who told me the management company that owns Penderbrook, WM Properties, has people post the postive responses you see on this board. They are full of crap at this place. If you read the post labeled "!!READ… Full Review ▶

I lived here for 2 years, and like I said in the title- I really think your experience depends on who your neighbors are. If you have considerate neighbors you will probably be just fine, but if you don´t you will… Full Review ▶

I lived at Penderbrook for 3 years and I loved my experience there. Yes, of course you´ll hear the regular apartment noise - you live in an apartment! The noise isn´t as extreme as some people are making out to be.… Full Review ▶

I lived at Penderbrook for a year in 2002. The apartments are great and the parking was never a problem. No matter what time you came home, you could always find parking. The office staff was very friendly. They were always… Full Review ▶

I´ve lived in the Penderbrook community for a year now and this place isn´t for everyone.
It´s the resort atmosphere that you´re paying top $ for. Yes the units are tiny and the walls are thin but your personal living space… Full Review ▶

It´s okay. When things broke (which they did) they were usually fixed within 24 hours. You definitely pay a premium for the golf course, the gym, and the pool. It is a GREAT place to jog, but the pool is only… Full Review ▶

It?s quite interesting that your email address is wmproperties.com - since that?s the management company!!!

Here´s a tip - next time you want to post a fake message about your employer, select "anonymous"!! What a joke! Full Review ▶

I have lived in many apartment communities and i must say that my best overall experience was at Pendebrook. The staff go above and beyond what i would conider required performance. Additionally, it is a value for your dollar. I consider… Full Review ▶

Penderbrook Apartments is a terrible place to live. First of all, as you can see, the rent is outrageous, even for that area. The completely charmless cookie cutter McMansion design of the entire neighborhood is enough to drive anyone crazy. Our… Full Review ▶

Is it for the service? No, definitely not. Asking the office to do anything for you is like pulling teeth! They have their abhorant rules and they enforce them with absolutely no exceptions.

Is it for the convenience? No. When… Full Review ▶

This community is old and it shows. Visibly it is kept in fairly good shape although they should definitely invest, on a regular basis, power washing the buildings. This would go a long way to improving the outside. The halls are… Full Review ▶

Living in this apartment complex nearly drove me crazy. The most annoying part (out of many, many annoyances) was that you could hear EVERYTHING that happened in ajoining apartments. Since I lived on the second floor, I heard everything above and… Full Review ▶

I lived in Penderbrook Apartments for five years and they NEVER refurbished the apartment. When I asked them to clean my carpets - they said that they would "get to it" - that was two years ago. So why did I… Full Review ▶

Penderbrook is located in a great area. Parking is tight, but not around my building. With the alarm service that Penderbrook actually pays for I am able to feel real safe in my apartment. Being on the first floor isn´t that… Full Review ▶

This is a very quiet community, which is nice. The amenities are good (pool, weight facility, golf course discount, w/d in home, etc.) but the price is a bit steep. I rent a 1 bedroom that is 560 square feet for… Full Review ▶

Penderbrook is so-so, the staff is great, but the apartments are not exactly what you´re paying for...

the parking sucks...the spots are so small, that you continuously are getting door dings, and someone actually completely hit the back end bad… Full Review ▶

The apartments are solidly in the ?good? category, but you pay a premium to be there. There is a bit of uppitiness in the staff, but maintenance does get done when you request it.
