Resident · 2011 - 2012
I am 7 months into my lease & we will be OUT OF HERE when our 1 year is up. The manager that was here when I signed my lease is a huge phony & misleads you from the start. She showed us a model room & never let us see the one we were moving into because of repairs. When we walked in, it was totally different than the model room. Kitchen floor was old, appliances are from the 80's (literally) but they "work" so they don't replace them. The carpet was old & ripped up at the corners, paint on the carpet, crooked fixtures, just pathetic. WORST part about this place are the FLOORS. They CREAK & GROAN LIKE CRAZY. The hallways, the people above us, our place...we have learned where to step over so we don't wake each other up in the middle of the night. They spend so much time putting new siding on the outside to make it look terrific when you arrive, but all that did was put lipstick on a pig. The laundry room has been out of order (not the a few machines, THE WHOLE ROOM) for over a week now, with no fixed date in sight. Price is OK but the 1 bedroom is very small. Wallingford Electric makes for a low electric bill but the money you pay in rent is not worth the savings in your electric bill. AVOID SOUTHWIND AT ALL COSTS...I have seen 2 different tenants moving out BEFORE THEIR LEASE WAS UP because they found somewhere better (a house & another apartment)...that should be enough to tell you NOT to live here. TRUST ME.
