Living in this apartment was the worst experience ever. The owner/manager Mark is nice until you move in. If you dare call him for any repairs, he treats you as if it is your fault and he is very rude. The apartments are remodeled, but it's… See More

The apartment was a god value, but my issues lie with the landlord/owner, Mark. There were multiple cleaning issues when I moved in, which I pointed out on the move-in form. During the course of the year, there were a few minor issues, but the last… See More

The two bedroom apartment was ok. Our first day there we noticed alot of tan-ish looking bugs which seemed to have disappeared after a while of us residing in the apartment, so it didn't bother us much. The apartment appeared to be clean but that wasn't… See More

I have lived here since last spring, along with a roommate. The apartments are completely remodeled and are heat paid, which is great. We had a couple of minor maintenance items that were handled the same day that we called. We have never had any problems… See More

This was a decent, clean, relatively quiet and well-maintained complex when we moved in in 1984. After the manager preeent then left, the complex began a nose dive into a roach-ridden, noisy, dirty, inconvenient and unsafe place to live. There were only a couple good managers… See More

The apartment we rented was remodeled, but shoddily done. The kitchen counters are separating from the wall, the electricity was short circuiting, the electrical plugs are sinking into the wall. Other reviews indicate problems with the landlord, but I can't say I had issues with him.… See More
