Canterbury Woods is a DECENT apartment complex. From the outside, they look small but quaint. They offer some nice amenities such as an outdoor and indoor pool (with a Jacuzzi), tennis courts, and a 24 hour fitness center. I have only… Full Review ▶

If you like little bugs this is the place. They have no routine pest control, just when you complain. They've "treated" my apt. 4 or 5 times, and still fight roaches every morning. Full Review ▶
