DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT LET BRANCHWATER APARTMENTS talk you into paying your hard earned money to live here. I recently lost most all of my belongings at Branchwater Apartment Complex in Vestavia. Based on my experience they charge premium cost for poor living conditions… See More

The management at the apartment is the worst! The apartments are large but overpriced for the age and condition. Utilities are high and the grounds are covered in dog pooh. The location is good but it does not make up for the bad management. See More

Overall living at Branhwater has been a wonderful experience. It's very spacious and homey (especially since you can paint). Maintenance has always addressed requests within 48 hours, which has been great! The noise, however, is pretty bad. You can hear the boards squeaking with every footstep… See More

If you are looking for a place to live, I would recommend you go anywhere but Branchwater. The location is the only appealing quality. Outside of that, this is the worst place I have ever lived. NO parking. HUGE power bills. The walls and windows allow… See More

The leasing agent was the only deterrent we needed. Either she is extremely miserable or has too much job security. I left after seeing how she handled a current resident. The property is convenient to everything but my first impression left me feeling uneasy about leasing… See More

Some things you should know: This is truly a community. Neighbors talk to each and help each other. If you want an apartment community where children play outside in the park or at the pool and neighbors speak when walking the dog, you should consider Branchwater.… See More

While the location is great, the parking isn't. There are not enough electrical outlets in the kitchen, and the cheap appliances leave alot to be desired. The management will bait you into moving in with good rates, such as $850 for a 2BR, 2BA 1300' apartment,… See More

The apartment was old and on the grungy side but spacious, and the rent seemed reasonable. Within the next year, though,there were problems: a heater that never heated, rotten wood, water leaks, mold, a backed-up sink, numerous roaches, etc. but the maintenance man was very nice… See More

this place is old and overpriced. plain and simple. the 2 bedrooms aren't worth anymore than $700/month. the 'renovated" apts still have the same old appliances. walls are paper thin. you can hear your neighbors and the floors are LOUD when you walk. See More
