                  Fair apartment

                  The thing that I disliked the most about the apartment my ex and I had was that the office decided whether the "central air" was switched to heat or cool. One cold night and the air is switched to heat and wouldn't be turned… See More>

                    Changing times

                    Runaway Bay is a large property with several styles of apartment : 4 floor mega-buildings, 2 floor/6 unit buildings and townhomes. I assume that the more negative comments have come from people in the megabuildings. My experience in the 2 floor unit has been very… See More>

                      Well I just moved in and so far the apartment is VERY spacious, bigger than any Ive seen so far. We got a really good deal on the rent so its not too expensive. Air Conditioner works great and cools really fast. Me, my husband,… See More>

                        To continue how bad this place is....

                        The elevator in building 3000 caught a small child's arm in it. I helped the mother and child get out. The child was screaming. The elevators were having a problem for a while. I went to the management office the next… See More>

                          You would think that they would care about the quality of life there, well, they don't. The ammenities absolutely suck. A gym room that closes at 5PM? Why? Because they don't want to work late. They don't have a separate… See More>

                                I lived in Runaway bay for a brief period until the building I lived in burned down in January of 2000. Prior the fire, all i can say is that the smell of curry was constant and the central air conditioning was terrible. I will… See More>
