I lived in Parkwild for a little over a year and this was my first ever renting experence. It looks really funky from the outside, but the inside of my apartment was ok. Basically, the grounds were... outdated and cheap looking. The parking lots weren't lighted very well and neither was the garage areas. There also wasn't a key or a code to get into your building, which made me feel uneasy, and at the time, I was 18. The whole time I lived there, were were horriable, tire gashing potholes very close to the clubhouse that should have been taken care of. I had a garage, way over priced ($50 bucks for a manual), but if I wouldn't have had one, there definitely would have been nowhere to park. The fixtures and windows were very very outdated. I had my screen door replaced, and when I came home from work, there was mud (presuming from someones shoes) on my coffee table and my tv was left on. I told the property manager, Carol, about it and she took a very sharp tone with me stating that she was at the office before maintenance left and when they came back and it was only 30 minutes. I just didn't fight it. When I moved in, I was told that the carpet was cleaned, but I was vacuuming up drywall for months. There was a TON of bugs even after I got my apartment sprayed three times. The bedroom didn't have any installed lighting which I thought was very strange, but I asked Carol if I could get a light put in and she did me one better and had maintenance install a fan for me. Also, when it rained or when snow was melting, I could hear a lot of dripping in my furnace closet. I reported it several times but it persisted and was never fixed while I lived there. It was nice that it was in the woods, on the outskirts of town and a nice amount of wildlife would come up on my porch, like raccoons, squirrels, and birds, and I saw a few deer out in the trees a few times. I'm not sure on the exact number of square footage of my place (I'm going to guess 780-800), but it was very spacious and for my first place, I was happy. Generally, my rent was very overpriced, and including the garage, it was steep. I pay under 600 at my apartment now with an remote controlled garage combined and it's way nicer and safer. It was ok at the time but unless they make some major repairs, give the place a huge face lift including more street lights and building locks, I wouldn't recommend a friend or family to the place.
