Wow, I love these apartments. I have never had a problem with nosy neighbors at all, we must be on the quiet side. I absolutely love it here, are we talking about the same place?
I can only second what "Rottentenant" has posted. I was going to write a long final review now that our lease has ended, but this previous tenant paints a better picture of what it is like doing business with Avalon. The noise level was really the deceiding factor for us to give up on this complex, and we are pretty upset with the way the office has handled (adding charges not list in the contract)the final stages. You can do much better. Good luck.
