I lived here 2 years and we decided not to renew for a third year. Here is why.<br><br>(background -I am a grad student in my 30s - have lived all over the US and traveled and grew up middle class)<br><br>Pros:<br>beautifuly kept grounds<br>nice pools<br>relatively quiet area<br>convenient to archer rd.<br>nice maintenance men<br>good ample parking<br>relatively safe <br>no loud student parties<br>cheap - for size <br>on bus routes,etc.<br><br>Cons:<br>no central a/c- LOUD unit<br>moldy<br>old appliances<br>very poorly insulated - noise and draft<br>(insulation is so poor that you get upstairs smoke permeating and can even hear neighbors urinating in the toilet!...)<br>some unsavory neighbors<br>TERRIBLE water pressure - don't try to shower in the am ---<br>some loud children - can be right outside your door - screaming and parents condone it. <br>old screens - poor locks<br>no dishwashers and laundry rooms are a fight for dryers<br><br>I will also say that the new management is apathetic at best!<br><br>There are too many options in Gainesville - I need a quiet place to live where I don't have to smell my upstairs neighbors constant cheap cigarette smoke and get awakened by dresser drawers at 5 am every morning.<br><br>Shop around.....if you are totally broke like I was 2 years ago - this might do ya for a while....
