Pathetic apartments

These people do NOT know how to run a business. They put people's health and safety at jeopardy. I moved in October 2022 the unit they showed me is not the unit I got. The unit I got was nasty and dirty things were broken… See More>

Not the Best

This place used to be well managed, but seems to have fallen into disrepair. There seems to be a never ending supply of garbage that can be found in the yards, hallways and parking lots. I have also heard many complaints about roaches and bedbugs.

    This apartment complex is a joke. Austin, the property manager, was the most pathetic excuse for a manager I have ever had to deal with. After months of repeatedly requesting that our maintenance issues be fixed, it took me threatening to terminate the lease if… See More>

      Great staff, very attentive. Some issues with maintenance and the time taken to complete work orders. Otherwise, I am very happy with my stay and have renewed my lease for another year. The location is also great with shopping and dining close by.

                      Very friendly staff, spacious apartments with large porches, prompt and friendly response to maintenance issues. Some folks are louder than others and some people do feel the need to honk to summon people but other than that we are very satisfied.
