              Chose this apartment because of proximity to I-75, stayed because of the attention to detail, habitual excellence, and knowledgeability of the staff.

                        Hello Lorah, I am very sorry to hear that our team had made such a large error in not having made your apartment ready for you several months ago when you first moved in and that your leasing experience was not the best as well. I do want to give you a follow up on the other items. The fire pit was repaired, the shuffleboard table was maintenance and sand is under tha table now should it need more for play. New pool sticks were put into the game room and all of the outdoor seating and lounge chairs professionally cleaned. Two fo the four grills were still operational but new parts have now been ordered to refurbish them all. We apologize that there had been a delay in getting some of the issues addressed. We do take pride in the community and will continue to work to make sure it meets or exceeds expectations.

                        At first it was a pretty good place. The dogs were always an issue, nobody picks up after them and barking can get annoying. I loved my unit and it seemed to be a great price for a 1Bd 1Bath around $1600. I did not… See More >
