Resident 2007 - 2010

Now the Retreat at Peachtree City

I lived here for 3 years, and was overall very pleased. It was an AMLI complex when I first moved in, and it was then bought by Grubb & Ellis. The only downside to the buyout was losing the Equity option (a % of your rent to go towards a future house). However, everything else was very positive. Safety was my biggest reason for moving to this complex--I'm a single female and I always felt very safe--even walking around at night. The office staff (for the most part) is VERY helpful and understanding, specifically Amy. She'll work with you on most anything! I had very few maintanence requests, but the few I did have were immediately taken care of. The maintanence staff is always very polite and willing to take the extra step to make it right. The complex is very well maintained and the buildings were all just repainted, so it looks great! I think it's slightly overpriced, but I felt that paying a little extra was well worth it for the experience. I would definitely suggest moving here if you are looking for a clean, safe complex and don't mind paying slightly more to get this.

    Has its good and bad points.

    I've lived here for almost two years now. The first year was a great experience. I was on the top floor in one of the back buildings, and everything was great. At the end of my first lease, I traded my peaceful apartment backing to the woods for one with a garage closer to the front of the complex. BIG MISTAKE. This building is only two floors and seems to not be contructed as well as the other building (with three floors). I hear every footstep the upstairs neighbors take, to the point that glasses rattle in the cabinets and the lights even recently flickered when they made a particularly loud thump. Being on the first floor now, I hear everything that gets dragged up and down the stairs, every peep people say to each other in the stairwell, etc. In my first apartment here, I rarely had any maintenance issues. In this apartment, it's been one thing after the next. In 10 months, I've had the a/c break twice, the ice maker/fridge malfunction, water leak through a light fixture in my garage from the apartment above, and most importantly… See More>

      Great place to live...

      I've lived in the Retreat at Peachtree City for well over a year and just renewed my lease. The apartments are nice and spacious with nice floor plans, and the complex is very well maintained. The staff is extremely courteous and attentive. I'd recommend it to anyone!

        BUG INFESTATION, RUDE MANAGEMENT, ETC.

        My girlfriend and I signed a lease with the amli for a full year and had to move out after six months. The management staff was full of young and pompous -------...We had a TICK infestation during the month of July, we found 40 ticks on our kitchen floor and hundreds of ants in our pantry, when we notified managment of this and showed them pictures and the tick in the jar they precided to tell me it was a roly-poly, which they obviously weren't b/c they didnt roly or poly and last time i checked roly poly's didnt pop out blood when you popped them. THey told us it would be a week until we got an exterminator and refused to take off any of our rent. They give you no formal notice of any relavent changes and try to find any reason to fine you and get as much money as they possibly can. Please, for the love of god, never ever live in this place. Unless every single person from management has been removed and bugs dont exist on the world anymore never live here. The only positive thing about this place is the kind and… See More>

          good place to stay (1 year)

          i've been staying with amli for almost 2 years now since when my company moved me from california. i only had 1 complaint about the leasing staff, so i still clear of that person. nevertheless, i had no issue with the rest of the staff, they are very friendly and helpful. the gym is open 24 hours, and the tennis court is well lighted, there are a lot of parking spaces, just be careful of fast drivers, they tend to accelerate on the uphill.

            Horrible Place to Reside

            My husband and I have been renting here for just over 6 months. We have had problems since the beginning. On move-in day the leasing staff didn't even know that we were moving in and didn't have the lease ready, etc. Luckily it is a standard lease where they just import your names, but our truck and movers were waiting to load us into the apartment. From day one we have had maintenance issues. It seems like they have had to replace almost everything in the apartment so far and the a/c never seems to work correctly. We received a new a/c unit and it still says the temp in the apartment is 81. The office staff is totally useless, uninformed, and unpleasant. They pretend to be nice to everyone and then comes the stab in the back when you are leaving. This has been the most miserable experience and we wished that our home wasn't taking so long to build. We moved here from NYC and we thought the rent was reasonable (at least compared to what we were paying), but I wish that we had looked at renting… See More>

              So far, so good...

              My family moved to Peachtree City in June of 2006. We are in the "transition" phase of our lives....renting until we decide to buy. After reading all the post on this site, I was worried about our decision to live at the AMLI @ Peachtree City. Now I am glad that we went ahead and moved in. The main reason for choosing AMLI is that our 5 year old daughter is getting the best education at Kedron Elementary. That has been a blessing! Back to AMLI.... the apartments are really nice. Best I've ever seen as a renter and my husband and I joke that we are "professional renters". They let you paint your apartment to suit your taste as long as it is within reason. (The deal is that you have to paint it back before you leave.) We live in the largest of the apartments, 3bd. 2 bath at 1400 square feet with an attached one car garage. Plenty of space for a small family or less. If you have petsd, you will pay a large pet deposit, but it's worth it. The apartments are super clean for move in. It's a very family oriented… See More>

                Like Being Back At School !!!!!

                Its not good, we havent lived here to long but recently we were posted a note through our door stating that if we didnt leave our fire extinguisher outside our door ready for it to be inspected etc then we would be fined twenty five dollars, something was said that we hadnt left it out before or something and that an additional visit was being made now, thats funny because I dont remember any notes before, this same letter I noticed was also posted on other peoples doors in the block where I live. What really made me mad however was that after leaving it out for the cretins to look at, nothing was done, the people whom were supposed to tend it did not come and so I am guessing we will have another note on the door soon saying that we need to put it out again for them to inspect etc. This is quite frankly crazy. It is also a great inconvenience. What happens if I am uaware when I have a note put on my door again stating when they will come and inspect, what happens when they come and its not put out, will I… See More>

                  Duhh !!!!

                  Recently Amli changed there codes for the Gym which they had nicely not told us they had done. We could not get in to our aerobics session because they had not informed our aerobics instructor of the new numbers either. This is just stupid and very incompatant. It doesnt take rock science to realize you need to let people know what the new numbers are or how else do you expect people to be able to use the facilitys ? Dumb Office Staff.

                    Amli Is A Joke

                    I agree with the last comment except that the office staff are not just nasty they are evil. They dont care about people living here and dont have time for people except when it suits them like for instance putting a note on a door and complaining and threatning to fine people that kind of thing over petty things. Thats how they do things around here in a sly fashion. The maintenence here is a joke. The guy in charge of maintenece doesnt know his a*s from his elbow and is next to useless. If you ever need maintence you can usual find them in there favourite place which is at the dumpster where they are normally talking or hiding around the back having a break or on the phone there. This place is really getting quite pathetic to live at. What makes me laugh is when they list all the ammenities which you will have when you live here like for ecample the car wash and the vacuum, sounds nice doesnt it, just a pity that they havent worked in over a year, same could be said of the so called business center, sounds good eh ?

                        Nice place to live, beware of ripoff cable (MediaWorks)

                        (after 3 months) AMLI @ Peachtree City is well maintained and we've enjoyed our stay. We haven't had a lot of involement with management but we've found some very helpful and responsive while other staffers have been quite the opposite.<br><br>Beware that AMLI forces a high priced, low service/quality cable company, MediaWorks on residents. After paying high install fees and suffering under dismal TV and Internet service we are now switching to DSL and Satellite. Fortunately AMLI hasn't shut out BellSouth like they have Comcast.<br><br>

                          Management Bullys

                          The Management here are basically pure bullys. Whats really got me mad right now is the fact that our lease runs out here in November, however instead of us just resigning in November when the present one runs out, they want us to renew now, so much so that they are saying that if we renew in the next few months our rent wont be raised as much as what it would be if we waited until resigning in November. This to me sounds almost like blackmail and I certainly do not appreciate such bully boy tactics. This is typical of the Management here and this is just the latest of a long line of problems that we have had with them. By the way is the Car Care Centre vacuum ever going to be fixed ? I have repeatedly tried using it and each time I find the slot is still blocked and that my quarters are swallowed up but lodge somewhere and hence the machine doesnt work, Ive even informed one of the maintenece staff personally and still its not working. Considering the high rent we pay here this place definatly isnt worth it.

                            Unhappy At Amli

                            Im very unhappy and dissapointed with our stay at Amli. We have lived here for over a year now and have in that time had numerous problems. For example recently we had a large bathroom mirror fall off our wall in the middle of the night. Luckily we were not in the bathroom at the time or else we would have been seriously hurt if not killed as the mirror shattered in to pieces and literally covered the whole bathroom floor. The mirror had not been fixed on the wall properly. We also had a similar thing happen once before with the heavy light shade cover in our hallway, one day all of a sudden it just fell from the ceiling, again luckily neither myself or my wife were in the hallway at that moment or else we would have been hurt badly, this exact same thing happened to one of our neigbours who wasnt so lucky and actually got hurt from such an instance happening. Amli do not do a good job of maintence and fixtures are shoddy and not well put together. Upon informing Amli of our mirror falling from the wall, we received a very sarcastic response… See More>

                                Mediaworks whom you must use if you want to watch Cable at Amli are quite useless. Our TV Guide has not been working for months now despite our contacting Mediaworks on several occasions. They seem too not care quite like Amli also. Amli have there own designated Company supplying Utilitys here. So we cannot change to another Cable Company if we so wish, this is wrong and this certainly doesnt encouarge a Company like Mediaworks to improve there service if they have no competition and they cant lose a Customer, also they can put the price as high as they like and us Residents are forced to pay it if we want to watch TV. Shame on Amli and shame on Mediaworks.

                                  Sadly Being Neglected

                                  We have lived at Amli for around a couple of years now and I have noticed that in recent months the complex is not looking as good as it once did. More importantly however things are being neglected around the complex and some of them resulting in it being more dangerous. For example the light in the one section where the mail boxes are has not been working for a long time now and I think this is dangerous to have an area which is frequently used like this for people to check there mail, for it to be in pitch darkness. Also the light in the hallway leading from the door of the gym to the actual gym is also not working and this is also dangerous too for the same reason. I would hate to see someone hurt because a light wasnt working. I too have also noticed an unpleasent smell arising from the pool also. Equipment in the gym is often broken due to the kids which play on the equipment. Notices were once up stating that no one under sixteen is allowed in the gym unless they are with an adult, these notcies have vanished long… See More>

                                    I have lived at Amli a few months now and I have to say that I am really not enjoying living here. Its turned out completly different to what I was told Amli would be like to live at when I first viewed. I very much now regret moving here. The Management here despite being so nice when I first came to view are really mean people whom are very slow and uncoperative when you need them to do something such as carry out repairs or making a request. For example kids hang out around the pool area on Friday nights and over Weekends drinking and doing other unspeakables. What concerns me though is the noise that is made as I live in a nearby Apartment, I asked the Management if they could do something reagarding this and they basically just said that kids would be kids and that they couldnt do anything. Well when you have kids breaking the law doing things on your property then I really would think that you would want to do something especially when it brings down the tone of the neigbourhood and makes life here much less enjoyable.

                                      Ive lived at AMLI a few months now and I have come to the conclusion that this place is a dump literally. Rubbish is strewn throughout the apartment complex, not suprisingly as the dumpster is frequently full, in actual fact overflowing is more the word and so there is nowhere to put your rubbish especially as it is not usually emptied for days at an end especially around the weekend when it reaches its fullest. The community pool is also a right mess, it has not been cleaned and leaves are all strewn across the water and a nasty smell is in the air. The lights in that particular area are also not working and the water is not being heated as is promised during the latter months of the year, I dont mind that so much but with it being so dirty even people like myself who dont mind the cold cant even use it because it is so filthy. Its very inconsiderate of AMLI and there staff who are a bunch of really arkward people to have to deal with. In actual fact I dread having to go to the complex office to talk with one of them.… See More>

                                        I have to agree with the last couple of posts. amli is not what it once was and when our contract is up here, we too will be leaving also. Its very expensive and you really arent given the service or facilitys which you would expect to have for such a monthly large ammount of money which we pay. the maintence isnt that great, it normally takes a lot to get someone out to fix something, so that ends up taking a while and the people who do the work arent very freindly. The people whom work in the office are also very difficult to deal with so much so that we just dont bother anymore, it gets a little tiring after awhile. The best thing to do is just accept it and know that we will be moving somehwhere which will be able to give us the service and facilitys which we are after which thankfully wont be too much longer now.

                                          There are repairs in this Complex which need carrying out for example the one light in the area of the mail boxes has not been working for a few months now and is actually quite dangerous with this being like this, also the vacuum machine by the car wash is not working, a coin is stuck and each time I go to use it to clean the car, I find it is still not been repaired and I have to travel a few miles down the road to clean my car. On the positive said however I have to say that the new maintenence man is very nice and freindly unlike the previous one or head maintenence man (?, Im not quite sure which) and hes also very helpful for example taking bags of trash up to the dumpster for you if he sees you heading that way and he is in the vicinity and he always has a smile which is nice to see unlike the miserable looking head maintence man. One hopes that this is the first of many changes of greatness to come.... Also as a final note I have to just add that the noise of… See More>

                                            We have to say that Amli is now declining quite rapidly. It really is sad for us to write this because we were actually the people who submited our Apartment Complex to this Website so as to be added, when we first moved in here we really loved our new Apartment and was very happy and so we wanted to leave some compliments on here. However for various reasons over the past few months, this Complex has now started to decline. We really dont want to say too much for fear of reprisals if an Amli Staff member reads this as they could possibly guess who is writing this but we will say as much as we think we can. We think the reason for the decline stems from the Staff here especially the people who work in the Office. When we first moved here we had a couple of really nice people whom worked in the Office and over time they have since left and people who arent as nice have now come to work in the Office and the Complex has gone in to a decline as a result.

                                                a wonderful apartment!!

                                                I have lived here for an almost 2 years now and must say that this is one of the nicest apartment communities that I have ever lived in. The staff is exceptional!! They really make you feel at home! (The cookies are out of this world) Also I have never had any problems with maintanece, parking, or my neighbors. The pool is incredible, the fitness center is more than just a bike! Plus we have free tennis lessons - that I really need!! Instead I walk across the street and get Baskin Robins! : )
