No place is perfect but some come close. <br>Overall, I can say this place is pretty good after living in the dorms for my entire years of undergrad. I am living here for another year. But, if you are picky and want more details read below. <br><br>Pros:<br><br>If you like to study, it's a nice, quiet place. I have heard my neighbors 3 times in 9 months time.<br>If you like to sleep at night, still a good place. <br>For 1/1 it's pretty BIG <br>Nice size kitchen and dining room. <br>Parking is never a problem. I can park right outside. <br>You have a gas stove.<br>They put new carpet when I moved in. <br>They let you sign 9 month leases, so no worries for summer sublets.<br>the common ground are pretty clean and well maintained <br><br>Cons:<br>Shands Helicopters go over the neighborhood, and they have awaken me at night. <br>The office "manager" is a nice person, but as a manager, let me tell you she sux. I am being honest. She never returns calls, or writes back. If you have a problem, don't expect to be fixed right away. They are very slow at fixing things. Unless you go to the office in person, good luck getting anything done.<br>My downstairs neighbor's air vent for the stove, comes all into my bathroom. I know, the installation is pretty bad. Old apt complex and they haven't invested since no updated fixtures, windows, etc. <br>The waste management co. doesn't pick up the recyclables often. It makes me mad bc I think the maintenance guys throw them in the trash bin to make room in the recyclable bins.<br>Laundry room have no air, so in summer months you can pass out if the dryers are running bc it's so hot in the room. Cost $1.25 each for washer and dryer. <br>Electricity can run from $35-90 a month. It depends on the weather and if you keep the air on a lot. I can guarantee you that if you keep the air on a lot, you will be paying more than $60 a month, bc the units are old and waist more energy than necessary. <br><br>They are increasing the rent to $595 in Fall 2007. (water, garbage, pest control included). <br>Good luck finding a nice apt. It's a pain.<br>I hope this helped a little.
