Resident · 2000 - 2004
When I came to this complex for a tour and fill out an application, I was made to feel as if I should feel honored they were approving me. I did, for a short time. Then came the Hurricanes (Charley and Frances). The complex was a mess after Charley, due mostly to the big Oak trees that toppeled over because they were ridden with termites and of course, had sand as a base. This was just the beginning, the shingles from the rooves were all over, tree limbs, trash and everything else you can imagine. Then, when Frances came through 4 weeks later, they had to rush around to get the place cleaned up. Now, this is just the weather. There is to be a "Drug-free" complex. It is not. There is much, too much selling and buying. Drug dealers are always in the complex after dark and the management does nothing. This complex is located across the street (on Dixie-Belle) from a Section 8 property and this drifts over. After Frances went through, the complex really went downhill, even more so than before. There was a noticable difference to the mix in the complex. The police are always here and there are residents that make you wonder just how they got approved. The office people are nice, but be careful. Remember, anything you say, can and will be used against you. You pay extra in your rent and don't let them tell you that you don't for a "gated" community. The gates are rarely working. The Conway area is not the best and you can get a very nice apartment in the Waterford Lakes area for less money and be safer. The parking is OK during the week, but not on the weekends. There is never enough room for you to park if you come after 9 on Friday, Saturday or Sunday nights. Not a great complex for children. They allow dogs under 35 pounds but you will see a LOT of new dogs in the community that are over 35 pounds. The office does NOTHING! Yes, I have said something to them about all of this and the only answer you get is "I'm looking into it". Well, keep looking.
