    ROACHES....ROACHES....ROACHES....ROACHES!! If the dangerous neighborhood, poor Security and Maintenance, lack of updates and Unprofessional Staff were NOT enough, thru all these years, I find I now have ROACHES in my Apartment coming in thru the Walls! They never update the units for current tenants, you have… See More >

      Parking lot is a JOKE! So is "Security". I think that is why they changed it to "Courtesy Desk" because they know "Security" is nothing but a JOKE! I've seen cars left on bricks numerous times so I decided to put it out here online.… See More >

        Upon the first glance, this place seemed spectacular. Sadly, I must say that the only thing I will miss here is the view. 1) the staff are two highly unprofessional and lazy women who thrive off excuses and intimidation factors that elude any problems that… See More >

          I moved here in 2012.I thought it was a nice area but crime is so common. A thief stole my catalytic converter the week of Jan.15,2013. So I'm paranoid that they may hit again and therefore I'm consulting with an attorney to find out what… See More >

            We moved in Nov of 2010, and at first the area had me a bit concerned, but SSBA is like an apartment from up north brought to South Shore. The view is AMAZING (we have a city view, and when we move we will miss… See More >

              DRUG PROBLEM: I was appauled when I was walking down the east stairwell at South Shore Beach Apartments. There were weed bags, "blunt gutts"(insides) and packages on the stairs, I could hardly believe it. I guess this is the "spot" for people to meet & get… See More >

                      Eventhough it is against the LAW, the lazy staff at SSBA continue to Smoke Cigarettes in the common areas, poisoning the tenants with deadly Cancer causing (carcinogenic) smoke. Tenants complain, yet it continues to occur. Management could care less of the well being of their… See More >
