First, the positives. Deerwood has some of the best guest parking of any apartment complex I've ever visited. The units themselves are quite new (at least mine was) and the floorplans are nice and spacious. The pool is nice when it's not packed with kids playing Marco Polo. From a management standpoint I have very few complaints. Now, the negatives. Other reviews have mentioned the hordes of kids roaming around and the subpar gym so I won't go over those. One of the main reasons I left was due to my terrible luck in neighbors. When I first moved in the units adjacent to mine were occupied by quiet families. By the time my lease was up for renewal both units had vacated, one replaced by partying 20-somethings, the other by a trashy family with obnoxious houseguests. There are lots of friendly families living in the complex and I realize that inconsiderate neighbors are hardly unique to Deerwood but I was paying too much in rent to put up with that mess. If you're lucky maybe you won't have the same problem.
