I agree with above commenter. Do not waste your time and money! The apartments are built very cheap with the cheapest materials used in the interior. Walls are very thin! Rent is overpriced for such a cheap looking apartment. The outside looks lovely and luxury but inside is not. This is not a luxury rental as it is labeled as such for marketing. Do not fall for it and get stuck in lease. False advertisement!!! This is not your only option in Port Charlotte.

      I moved to Lakes of Tuscana in June and couldn't be happier with the decision! There are a variety of options to meet what you are looking for in terms of # of bedrooms, flooring type, garage, etc. The apartment living space is great for the 1 and 2 bedroom apartments (I never looked at the 3 bedroom option so I couldn't say how that is). The Apartment Complex is well maintained and always looks its best. It has great amenities such as the pool, the lake, the walking/running path that loops (1.3 miles as I have ran it a few times) around the complex, but I would have to say my favorite amenity is the beach area. It has two hammocks, a fire pit, and its an actual beach area along the edge of the lake. Also, Lakes of Tuscana puts on great on events such as; Hot Cocoa, complimentary room and supplies for Christmas gift wrapping, Smores night, Oktoberfest (!!!!!), and many other events. The only thing missing is a Poker Night lol. Another great feature of Lakes of Tuscana is that the office staff has been very pleasant and amazing so far! I have mostly dealt with… See More>

        This is my "Forever Home"! I highly recommend living at Lakes of Tuscana. It all began with a Port Charlotte and surrounding area apartment web search while I was living on the west coast. Not wanting to move into an apartment sight unseen, I flew to Florida to see firsthand my top six apartment choices. When I drove onto Lakes of Tuscana grounds, I was IMPRESSED! The landscaping was beautiful and meticulously maintained. The rental office was spacious, beautifully decorated and inviting, and the staff was genuinely gracious and welcoming. I was enthralled when I was shown the different apartment models. This was the place where I wanted to live. A year has passed, and I just renewed my apartment lease. I could not be happier with my choice. My apartment is spacious and beautiful. I have my own private entrance, there are no outside stairwells leading to the second-floor apartments, and there are some garages! I have made many friends just by walking my dog, using the pool and gym equipment, and attending the various "get to know your neighbor" events. Overall, this is a very quiet community with wonderful amenities and beautiful grounds. The Lakes of Tuscana staff are… See More>

          Our leasing specialist Michelle Betancourt was awesome! If it wasn't for her help our move across the USA would not of gone as smooth as it did. Our unit fits our needs and the our overall impression was and still remains higher than expected. The grounds are well cared for, our neighbors are friendly and there is a sense of community within this gated complex. I would highly recommend all ages to consider Lakes of Tuscana. There is something here for everyone, including any fur babies!

            I have been a resident of Lakes of Tuscana for a year and a half thus far. In all honesty it has been the best community I've ever lived in, and easily the best apartment complex I've ever lived in. The first day when my wife and I toured the grounds with Michelle we knew it would be a great place to live. Michelle was extremely courteous and professional. She answered all of our questions and concerns and followed up with us throughout the process of signing our lease to make sure we were taken care of. The maintenance staff is prompt and thorough at fixing any issues we've had (which have been next to none). The grounds are always pristine. It really does feel like we are living on vacation. Since moving in, Lakes of Tuscana has upgraded many things. One of the best upgrades has been the man-made beach that overlooks the lake. It has hammocks for lounging, kayaks that are available for rent, and a fire pit for bonfires. Another thing was a professional grade 5 burner stainless steel grill located at the pool. The on-site gym has gotten a facelift and some new cardio equipment. It… See More>

              Hi world! I normally don't write reviews, but Lakes of Tuscana has gone above and beyond my finance' and my expectations. We felt it would be robbery not to say a kind word or two about our first impression. We are in the process of relocating to the area for job promotions, and Michelle has made the process of finding a unit that meets our needs effortless. She has truly been a blessing to work with during this transition phase, and we are honored to have her as our leasing representative. In additional to having one the best leasing reps I have ever worked with, the property and amenities are absolutely amazing. Although, we do not move in until next week we are happy to call Lakes of Tuscana home and we are very satisfied with each member of the Lakes of Tuscana team. T & Jess

                I have lived at Lakes of Tuscana for going on 2 years now and have enjoyed all this community has to offer, the pool and hot tub area are first rate with and excellent view of the lake. The fitness center has everything I need to stay in shape with resistance options as well as cardio and elliptical machines. The staff are very polite and are very attentive to any issues that may come up. I would highly recommend Lakes of Tuscana for your next home. None better in Port Charlotte!

                  Moved here sight unseen from out of state and we could not be more pleased. Absolutely spotless upon move-in, not one bit of cleaning needed to be done - and I am a clean freak. Nice apartment, amenities and grounds. Would definitely recommend this place. We have 2 pets so there is an extra monthly fee. Our area is fairly quiet, nice neighbors. Can hear people upstairs but, this is apartment living and it's to be expected. Staff is helpful and mostly friendly, move in process/paperwork went fairly smoothly. Some of the staff live on site too. Decent gym and pool area. No complaints.

                    Lakes of Tuscana is NOT a luxurious apartment complex. They have nice accommodations on the outside, but the insides are mostly carpet with cheap countertops and cheap appliances. Overpriced compared to houses with garages that don't have noisy neighbors above or next to you. You can do much better in Port Charlotte for $1200+ for a 3BR with no garage and noisy neighbors.

                      I would not recommend these apartments by any means. They are only interested in one thing... You're money! They hit you with a water bill which they said at first I did not have to pay. Then you have to pay for trash and sewage as well, so keep in mind they add it to your monthly rent. The price seems to increase after a while. There are much better places to stay at in Port Charlotte around the Murdock Circle area. You're always going to see mover companies in and out of this apartment complex because people bail after their contract is due. If you dont mind dishing out the extra clams, this place would suit you.

                          When I began looking for an apartment home closer to my place of work, several people recommended Lakes of Tuscana as a viable option for me. Living alone, I desire a safe, friendly and well maintained development and that is exactly what I found when I toured the development. I have been here since December of 2013 and just love it!

                            When planning our move to Florida from the Midwest, we were left with the uncertainty of finding a home on-line. We decided on Lakes of Tuscana with fingers crossed that it would be as nice in person as on the web. WOW, we couldn't have picked a more beautiful, friendly community! I have seen a few of the negative reviews and really, I think some people are just complainers who like to nit-pick every little flaw or are just completely unrealistic about apartment living versus a house. First of all, it is an apartment complex, so once in awhile you will hear noise, but I have neighbors on each side of me and behind me (3 sides) and upstairs from me and the only noise I have ever heard is very occasional footsteps upstairs. No noise at all from any of my side neighbors. The walls seem very well insulated compared to other complexes. Second, I hope you are a friendly person who is not afraid to say hello to your neighbor as you pass them on the sidewalk. Because everyone here is a pleasure to meet...very friendly and welcoming.

                              If you're looking for a new place to live, you've found it! Stop the search! In April of 2013, I retired in CT and the first thing I did was fly to Fla., for a week, to find a rental for the winter mos. and to see what we think of it. Mission accomplished! Our week was CRAZY!!!!! We put on 997 miles in 6 days looking at so many homes in the Port Charlotte area. First we started with funky rv parks as they were fun people. Not stuffy rules, would allow me to fence in our dog, RIGHT ON THE WATER!, just many reasons. We found one that was clean, cute, wicked friendly people (invited us into their homes), helpful, so much character but there was only one that would rent and that little place was $1000 a month and not on the water. The rest were for sale only from 14,500 to 65,000 but none were perfect and all too small so we couldn't have guests. Then we looked at manufactured homes in 55 (age) parks. OMG, they had toooooooooooooo many rules!! And you had to buy at least 5 shares… See More>

                                We recently relocated to Florida from Michigan. We had visited Florida earlier in the year to look at apartments. Lakes of Tuscana was such a beautiful community! We viewed an apartment but not the exact floor plan that we ended up in. The staff was excellent when it came time to apply for our apartment, we also did everything via the internet, due to the fact that we were still in Michigan. Kim especially, but all the staff that I delt with made our move absolutely seemless!! We couldn't have asked for anything better! We have now been living at The Lakes of Tuscana for almost a month now and we just love it!! The grounds are kept up beautifully and it is an extremely quiet, peaceful place to live. Since we rented our apartment, sight unseen, we didn't know exactly what to expect...we couldn't be happier! My only complaint, if I had to have one, is that I went through and cleaned the carpets after we moved in. Not sure who their cleaning crew is, but I don't think the carpets were touched. I also must ad,… See More>

While we have been looking for a new house to move into, this has been a great place to live. The office staff are very friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and it's a safe community. Several police officers live on the property! We would definitely recommend renting from Lakes of Tuscana!

                                      They do not enforce noise ordiance! Upstairs renters use a subwoofer and they had gone through 2 renters in my unit before I moved in. I feel they rented to me in bad faith. The renters upstairs use the subwoofer on gaming and on movies. It sounds like I live under an Arcade/Theater with no place to run to or hide from the noise. Thunderous roars and bangs ... vibrate across my ceiling just about daily, weekly, monthly, every second, minute and hour and into the morning hours like 12:30 a.m. when I had to call the Sherrif's office which I was told to do so by Lakes of Tuscana staff. I called the Sherrif's office, when they come out, after they talked to the renters upstairs while they were outside the door(Lakes of Tuscana is where a sherrif was killed not long ago). I was told by the Sherrifs to contact Lakes of Tuscana and have them enforce the lease. Think really hard before paying $1180, or any amount in rent to be tortured by neighbors!

The office staff is great and the maintenance staff as well...(they also respond promptly to phone calls & requests day/night/weekends). We are a great little tight-knit rental community, neighbors are friendly and speak to each other. The pool is amazing, a great fitness center also. I guess I would love to see a further updated kitchen & bathrooms with nicer counter-tops and glass-top stoves...I have seen that in other places, maybe Lakes of Tuscana will bring it our way in the future.

I spent weeks searching for a great place to live and Lakes of Tuscana seemed like the best place around for me and my two young sons (my husband passed away last June). I coordinated with the office staff who were very friendly and did their best to answer my many questions. I had plenty as this is my first apartment. When I arrived here I was happy to see their website pictures were true. The landscaping is beautiful and well kept. The pool and common areas are beautiful with nice, comfortable, quality furniture. We visit the pool often and I never felt like it was overcrowded even on the weekends. The other residents are polite and respectful and friendly. I am pleased to find that there are no problem people (at least in my area). My neighbors are very friendly to my boys and even remember our names. My apartment is airy and spacious.

                                                    A: For trash/sewer they charge around $6 or so, electric that will depend on if use a lot. I pay around $100 or so but I keep my AC at 75 during the day when I'm not home, and I use Comcast and pay about $120.

                                                    A: There is no separate guest parking. Just don't park in a reserved spot.
