This Community is Marketed and Advertised as a "Luxury Retreat" This is FAR FROM LUXURY. When I moved into my unit in 2018 I thought it was nice for a little one bedroom, a week later my AC went out. It took my 4 DAYS!!!See More >

Terrible! The management is so poor. They don't work with you at all. It took over 3 weeks to get service for getting my washer fixed. Plus, their responses are very rude. They just wash their hands off saying we can't do anything about it,See More >

Nothing anyone can do. The area's income is based primarily on well-off retirees, so if you don't like wiping butts or haven't struck it lucky, move along for your own good. The element is questionable. I've seen a police raid being set up. I seeSee More >

Unbelievable - I live in a 2-bedroom w/out a washer/dryer, yet water/sewer is nearly $60 a month. This is because water/sewer are based upon the building usage, i.e., your neighbors are using tons of water or have four kids, so your water/sewer are basedSee More >

The staff is helpful, and maintenance comes quickly and takes care of problems. The facilities and apartments aren't new, but overall this place is average or a bit above average. I was there for a year and a half by the way.See More >
