Resident · 2008 - 2009
I've lived at Country Villas for a year and I am definitely content living here. Not overjoyed, yet not appalled either. Let's start with the positives: -Great location. There's a park at the end of the block. Naperville is very close by with all of it's shops and restaurants. And easy access to rt 53, I-88, and I-355. -Parking for me was awesome. There was always a spot right outside my unit. However I can see where some others are not as lucky and have to parallel park. -My favorite part about this apartment is my patio. I'm on the first floor in a 1 bdrm and have a huge patio that opens up to the courtyard and the pool. The only ones that don't have a big patio are 2nd floor 1 bdrm apartments. The patio is also nice because it has a divider so it's private. I've looked at many apartments and none can compare with this aspect. Negatives: -Noise. The building is obviously old and I can hear, literally, every STEP my neighbors above me take. Every step. It was vacant for 6 months so that was nice. However, if they decide to walk around in the middle of the night, be prepared to wake up (if you're a light sleeper). -It's true that the grass rarely gets cut in the summer. Once every 2 weeks or so they'd have a crew come out and do it. But even then, they didn't cut it very low so it was overgrown the majority of the summer. -Pool. It's nice to have one, however there are a very limited number of (broken) pool chairs, and the pool isn't the cleanest I've been in. -It's old. The bathroom tile, the closets, etc are just old. There are upgraded units available for a higher price but I haven't seen how "upgraded" they are.
