Lofts at Pinehurst
Resident · 2008
My girlfriend and I live in one of the studio lofts. We're five months in to our one year lease and we can't wait to get out. The office staff is friendly, but never forget that this complex is owned by Essex, a CORPORATION that has no real relationship with the tenants. Our apartment gets UNBEARABLY HOT during the day. There is NO AIR CONDITIONING. The complex is too far from the beach to enjoy the cool breeze from the ocean. HARD WATER! Water is so hard you could walk on it. The dishwasher is useless and even when we hand wash our dishes, we still end up with a filmy layer. The bathtub is impossible to keep clean. Many parts of the upstairs floor have weak spots that make lots of noise by simply walking across the room. Despite being in a decent neighborhood, BUMS AND THIEVES make their rounds in the carports. Unlocked storage units get opened and stolen from. Since we've been here, my bicycle has been stolen (lock cut) and at least two cars have been broken into. Some have complained about thin walls, but we barely ever hear our neighbors. Perhaps we just got lucky. The grounds are nicely maintained, but I could care less when my stuff is getting stolen. There are lots of amenities that can lure you in - gas barbecues, pool and hot tub, fitness room, pool table, computer room, clubhouse, etc. but it's still too damn expensive, even with all that.
