Resident • 2016 - 2017
Be wary of renting here. I will say one good thing about these apartments is the location. It's next to a smart n final which is very convenient for when you forget milk or eggs etc and it is close to my family. There is no fitness center. The apartment itself reeks of cigarette smell. They did an "ozone" treatment but that did not help. So we had to deal with cigarette smelling furniture, clothes, and cars for 1 year. It was awful. And yes it follows you into your car. We are not smokers and no one has ever smoked inside the apartment yet anyone who came over would smell the overpowering odor. If you enjoy living in cigarette odor please move in. The flooring that is put is vinyl which is very cheap and rips up very easily so be careful. The carpet is also cheap and gets ruined very easily. According to the manager Jonathan we "chipped" the "refurnished" kitchen countertops where the spots literally looked like an off color paint smaller than a dime. No one would know what that looks like unless you have experience working with counter tops. The appliances are probably 20 years old and the oven doesn't even tell you when it's done preheating. The bathroom is ok. The water pressure and temperature works well except the toilet was dysfunctional quite often. The AC unit was awful as it was extremely loud sometimes. It would break easily and cost our electricity bill to sky rocket due to it malfunctioning. Even though we would have the AC turned to 73 degrees the apartment would still feel hot and muggy. The insulation does not work well here. The neighbors are mostly old retired folk who have nothing better to do than to watch you. I would not recommend any family or friend to live here. The maintenance team member who is an older gentleman seems like he is over worked. I have seen him there until midnight some days. He is so nice though and courteous. I don't know his name but he is a friendly man. The property towards the back of the community gets neglected very much. There is always trash and old furniture by the dumpsters which will stay there for weeks. The trash cans are always over flowing. The landscaping in the back is also neglected which isn't fair for those of us who pay our full rent on time every month. The palm tree and flowers that are placed by the model apartment should be in every ones door way. It would have made living there more enjoyable. Im not sure where these good reviews come from probably management or they pay off other residents. Overall, we did not enjoy living here. I understand that we had to pay for the carpet and the paint but the cleaning fees are ridiculous. Charging residents for normal wear & tear of the counter top is ridiculous. Anyway, good luck!
