Resident · 2011 - 2012
It's almost been a year here at Ponce Harbor, and my review is realistic and honest. The overall complex looks very nice from the outside, especially in the early hours of the day. Maintenence and up keep is always active. However, it's an endless battle against the many lazies and low class tenants that have over saturated the property. Take a drive through Ponce after dark, especially on the weekends, and you'll see it's true colors (beer cans, broken beer bottles, cops driving around, and shady characters up to no good.) I'm very dissapointed on how ------ this place has become. You'll try to nap after a hard days work only to be quickly woken up by some garbage hip hop music shaking your bedroom wall. The playground is bombarded with potty mouth kids who have worthless parents nowhere to be found. Every couple of months, you'll get notices about a mandatory walk through on smoke detectors and air filters. The truth is Ponce is making sure there's not a meth lab or someone housing losers that are not on the lease, which is good. The dumpster is out of control! It will be emptied on a Thursday. Keep in mind, this is a giant dumpster. Just two days later, there will be trash all over the place. Trash overflowing all over the parking lot, trashy looking peices of furniture laying around, and cats prowling around eating out of a tampon. No joke! Ponce is a smokers paradise. 8/10 residents chain smoke, including the office management ladies. I've had airfreshners in every room throughout my apartment, only to come home from work and be greeted with a very stale pool hall odor. It's rediculius! The only good thing about living here is the convenience to everything around Saint Augustine. I close with this, the complex could be a nicer living environment if the management would filter/screen people more. A lot of people living here have little class or character and would be better suffice in a 1980 trailer park.
