-may sometimes be an inconvenience
-1 car garages as well as covered parking for a monthly fee (do not know this fee, as I do not have either)
-we were fortunate to be in the first building as you enter the gate which is right next to the visitor parking, so it hasn't been a terrible issue
-some neighbors are louder than others, some quieter
-yes, you will hear your neighbors at one point or another, as with ANY apartment complex. And from time to time, yes people will have parties or get-togethers, or birthdays, etc. That's apartment living, and its a one night celebration. Its their home too, you cant expect them to cater to your every desire so you can feel at home if they wouldn't feel comfortable being in their home as well. I have never seen nor heard any neighbors in the entire complex that are constantly partying and being wild or rowdy.
-once again, fortunately we've never been bothered by noisy neighbors
-the grounds are wonderful, very up-kept and neat
-gives a great and pleasant appearance
-sidewalks and non-visible stairways are a plus for me
-on-site playground, fairly small but always kids or small children with parents coming by to play on a nice day.
however, as I mentioned earlier, apartment living doesn't mean everything will always go your way. that being said, after dark,
a group of kids may once in a while come hang out there and cause disturbances. this is one among my very few complaints
only due to the fact that my boyfriend and I are always spending time on our balcony to relax and enjoy ourselves. with our
balcony LITERALLY overlooking this playground directly it can cause some frustrations occasionally.
-the outdoor lighting mostly comes from the lights on the building walls
-all sidewalks have a clear view of your path when on them, looking either direction
-can be a bit scary if your a girl and a bit of a baby when it comes to walking alone on a really dark night after watching a semi-scary cheesy horror movie, trying to take your puppy to potty hahah. REALISTICALLY though, I have never felt any real
threat or feared for my safety
-there is really no actual construction on the site
-its a newer complex, so the appliances, fixtures, etc. are in great condition.
-top of the line? no, but I don't have any problems whatsoever with them (appearance or reliability wise)
-consider you top priority
-very speedy, and get to you as soon as possible
-great maintenance staff, friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and always somewhere around the complex, improving what is already great, or assisting someone who has requested their help
- as I type, they are actually maintaining the lawn-leaf blowing after mowing
-great, Kelly (mngr.) and Betty (asst. mngr.) are always trying to help to the best of their abilities
-everyone is different, as well as their personalities, so sometimes they may seem rude or uninterested but sometimes it can be how a person communicates in a conversation, on either partys behalf.
-I think it is a great place to make your home.
-up-kept and attractive appearance
-door side trash service (fee)
-pets welcome (fee-do not know extent of details)
-in-unit washer and dryer
-hardwood floors in kitchen, bathroom, and entry way
-double locks on doors
-fairly large closets
-garden tub (love!)
-storage off patio or balcony
-helpful staff and maintenance
-may be a bit pricy for the amount of space, but with the outstanding service and amenities, I believe it is worth it
- as I've said a few times already: apartment living people! many people are trying to make this place their home. if you want peace and quiet and respect from everyone, go to a senior home. all you can do is be kind, courteous, and respect your surrounding neighbors. And with the great management, if it still is a problem and something needs to be done, please speak with them...they can move you to a different apartment or even building, there are appropriate ways to handle these types of things, it is just a matter of your maturity to handle these things like a big kid, instead of b****ing and whining and blaming the "poor" management because you are dissatisfied.
-also once again, don't expect people to put their life on hold to cater to you
-I encourage everyone to consider EVERYTHING about the any apartments they are considering. this includes anything from: management to lack thereof, fixtures and cabinetry, size and price, amenities and pet policies or restrictions, restaurants or grocery stores in the area, parking to location.
-Imagine yourself living here...even consider the small details. Is it really worth deciding against a specific complex because parking may be a hassle sometimes even though you would live in a safe, well kept place, set in a convenient location within 3 miles of where you are sitting on your couch with a great interior from the bottom up? Savoy of Garland is this place, and I'd recommend it to anyone. singles, couples, families with children and pets.
