Resident 2018 - 2019

7/30/2019

I spent a little over a year at Bell Lake Forest and had an enjoyable stay. It has a friendly staff, Heather is very professional and responsive to any request you may have. The amenities are top notch with an impressive pool area and over the top crossfit style gym with weights and racks. The location is great right next door to a local Publix and near I-4 access. The maintenance staff was also friendly and very quick with any request you had. I would highly recommend this apartment complex over most of the other options in the Sanford/Lake Mary area. -Matt

    Although we've lived here only a little over a month, we love it. It's been hassle-free, just like they advertise. Everyone in the office is so kind and quick to resolve any issues you may have. The most impressive thing is that, as ------- was walking me to our apartment for a tour, she greeted EVERY resident she saw BY NAME. This is a place where they truly care about you and your well being. They are extremely professional, yet caring and personable. They want to do right by you because you are their customer, but more so because you are a fellow human being. Loving it here - genuinely.

        Quick reaction to a problem was a nice bonus, and how quickly it was resolved was even better. Even the temporary fix was great till they knew what was truly needed helped keep me comfortable. And there was no sign of any work debris I could see, so no personal clean up on my end.

            Love the community and staff, having a problem with a very loud upstairs family and not enough parking for my building, but I know its because this is a popular community and its pretty full. Overall, its been a good and comforting experience after having to leave my home of 22 years.

              Do not move here . You will want to move out the next day. The leasing staff are bullies , neighbors are loud , domestic disputes. The community is not pet friendly however they do charge pet rent . I cannot recommend this community in good conscious

                Located in a very nice area. The buildings are built with quality modern materials. Which means once you walk in, it's both very structurally built and stylish. All of my guests are always impressed with the apartment complex when they visit. Sometimes a little jealous. Great place to live.

                  Do not rent here! Poor quality appliances, cheap and poorly maintained ammenities, staff/management are rude/inattentive/will not address anything, very dirty community and buildings, unresponsive and often rude staff. Not worth the price or the frustration.

                    So far everything is great, everyone that Ive met by bypassing were very kind and welcoming. The only concern here would be being able to hear my neighbors conversation upstairs and my neighbors dog downstairs. I dont think the walls are thick enough to block out the noises. Other than that its amazing here. I love it.

                        As residents we have always appreciated the staff. The maintenance has always been excellent as they strive to keep thing kleen and picked up. They are good at issueing warnings to residents when things need to be corrected like in the pool area and commons area. Management does a good job monitoring those areas.

                          The management and staff are absolutely wonderful! The floor plan's in this complex dominate the competition, especially the 2 bedroom layout with a gorgeous open floor plan and a beautiful Island that separates the kitchen and living room. I couldn't ask for a more perfect fit for my wife and I. Thank you so much Bell Partners for making my first apartment rental the best experience of my life!

                            All Staff Memebers have been great to work with, grounds appearance and closeness to everythng is just great. This community rates far above Colonial Town apartmenst I lived at previously. Still getting used to living in apartmenst after being in houses for 40 years.

                              Do not live here. This place is loud with poor design- you can hear someone using the bathroom upstairs from your bathroom and any noise resonates through walls. I have now been waiting a week for a maintenance request. I pay over $1000 a month to live in an apartment with building like what you would imagine a section 8 apartment.

                                Viewed many apartment complexes in the area and none even came close to Bell Lake Forest. These apartments are the most spacious, modern and well kept in the area. The amenities are fantastic, staff are great, and there's plenty of parking (something I've had issues with at other apartments). Absolutely love living here!

                                          Definitely need better security, start with cameras in all hallways, I was advised that they are too expensive to install, otherwise the maintenance, and rental people are deserving of a good rating, any issues have been solved same day as reported.

                                                Resident 2016 - 2018

                                                4/29/2018

                                                been living here since 2016; renewed once because of location but have realized that this place isn't worth it. over priced for any apartment with management always up your a**crack. constant "inspections" needed that require entry into the apartments at hours of the day when you are not there (i've started to believe its so they can keep tabs on the residents). and if you tell them you cannot enter the unit because of either pets or you work the night before and need to sleep they will shrug their shoulders at you and tell you oh well because you have to comply. the only reason this place gets more than 1 star from me is maintenance. the maintenance men are very accommodating and take care of all maintenance request within 24 hours (the longest i've had to wait was 48 hours). the build materials are very cheap and everything can be heard from a basic conversation to a rumbling surround sound system playing in the unit above yours through both the walls and the floors. Lately lots of shady and sketchy looking residents have been approved for move in, causing longer term residents to reconsider their living arrangements since… See More>

                                                  Really save yourself the trouble...Yes it's pretty but it's not worth it. Read on .... From day one there was trouble. there was absolutely no lights in any of the rooms. I had also paid for a three bedroom they gave me a two bedroom w/ den they never installed the closet for my daughters room due to THEIR mistake of moving us in too early. so I asked OK that's fine can you just lower the monthly payment since it's not a true three-bedroom. They said no of course not very politely though. There was also a promise of a 24 Hour Business Center that didn't happen until about 8 months through my lease and the fans/lights didn't even come into the house until about six months into my lease. As we settle into the community and I'm there for a month we see a huge change in the attitude of the management I felt scammed at that point .... I felt that they were just nice to me initially to get a unit filled I felt like a number at bell lake forest and I was treated like a number at Bell Lake Forest. … See More>
