    So let me tell you about this community...maintenance requests go untouched for 30 days on some...WHY? They cannot hire and keep a maintenance man so we get "emergency" maintenance only! The people who work for the management group are unbelievably rude and of no help. Call or email and you more than likely will not receive a return call or reply. Bugs and Mice? Sure this is the place for you, bring all your pests and animals with you. Like to smoke pot? Move right in its the place for it Deal with crappy neighbors? This is the place as well. Management is less than a one star as is maintenance

      There are a lot more cons to this apartment than there are pros. My biggest issue is that there are mice. I keep my apartment clean and I also live on the third floor. I'm pretty sure they live in the walls and get in through underneath the sinks and dishwasher area. The other issue is that my air conditioning was completely worthless during the summer. It was actually blowing out cold air but he apartment would not cool down for anything. It was consistently 80+ degrees in my apartment during the day WHILE the "air conditioning" was running constantly. It would only get down to the temperature I set it at (69-70) overnight. It was miserable. I did have someone look at it and they said there was nothing they could do. I couldn't even keep house plants because they would die due to the heat. Other issues: the dishwasher is worthless. Only half of my dishes come out "clean" and they will sometimes smell. I rarely use it. The fridge is an energy hog and runs way too much. The air vents are painted over so many times that they will not close to redirect any air flow.… See More>

        We are moving from out of town, and had availability on Saturday to look at apartments while we were in town. Alex, the property manager, was very helpful in letting us know apartment availability and answered any questions I had. Unfortunately their office was not open on Saturday so we could not look at an apartment inside, but we drove through the complex and were pleased at what we saw. It was quiet and clean outside. The grass and landscaping was taken care of and there were a few people outside enjoying the space. Had we had a chance to view an apartment, I definitely think this could have been an option for us!

          Would not recommend due to mold issues (that have not been taken care off) apt tries to charge Tenant for stuff they shouldn't have to pay for, they willl tell you anything to get the apt filled. There is always people smoking out side the doors and cig butts on the ground and placed in the walls, trash on the ground around the dumpster.

            Like my apartment. Maintenance done in timely maanner. Convenient to stores and shopping. I did not appreciate all the outside noise. Neighbors quiet and friendly. Apartment are non smoking which is good because I don't smoke and the builying doesn't smell of cigarettes.

                Great quality staff. My apartment was ready to move into. Everything was brand new like they described. Move in was easy. Appliances are new and a stackable washer dryer was included. Fresh paint, cabinets, counter tops, floors and ceilings.

                    I am very happy with Winchester Village. The community is quiet. I love the floor plans and the amount of space available to use. I also like the speed at which the maintenance requests are completed. I would like to see some of the buildings updated in the future though.

                      Overall this complex is very nice. There have been a few issues with car vandalism but we are pretty sure it is from the complex across the street. Majority of the residents here are extremely nice even though 85% do not speak English. Most of their kids do and my 5 year has had a wonderful learning experience with the diversity of friends he has made. The office and maintenance staff are pretty awesome. I enjoy just going in and talking with Meredith and when Alex is out and about cleaning or fixing something he makes it a point to ask how I am and talk for even just a few seconds. Maintance requests are usually filled within a couple hours and also done right the first time. It's sad we actually move very soon and wish they had 3 bedroom apartments.

                        office personel and maintance oersonel are friendly. work request are promptly attended to. Other residents are helpful and friendly. the only thiNG I feel that needs to be addressed is the entrance to the apartments. I also wish somethjng could be done about the tree in front of apartment. The leaves and fallen branches are every where. They fall on your car and get stuck under windshield blades and clog up the defroster vents. … See More>

                          I find the apartment very clean very safe community to leave in. also all stores I need is just walking distance for me. Also about the transportation, there is a bus 31 comes every 30 m and it takes you to the mall and takes you to the downtown on the another direction.

                            the staff is nice. The outside is well kept. Most the people who reside there are non-english speaking people, but they are all nice. I would say it is a good place to live and grow a family. they do offer a playground for kids. With grocery just across the street and other shopping.

                                  I have never felt unsafe or ignored while living at Winchester Village Apartments. Alex, the maintenance man, is always quick to response and is very professional in doing so. I have never had any issues with any of my neighbors in all the years that I have lived at Winchester Village.

                                      I just moved in on july 2013 and I realy like it so far . The Apartment Manager Meredith is the best . My stove was old and broken and they got Me a brand new one . All my maintance requests were handled fast and in professional manner . These are old buildings so I could easily pick these apart as the cabinents are showing age but for the price I an not complain especialy considering the size of the 1 bedroon unit I leased . updating My review 2 years latter , well the heat went out in one of the coldest winters , the place is poorly insulated , in the summer my ac runs constantly , I Have to run a window AC unit in the summer and room heaters in the winter that is how poor the insulation is . some of the downstair tenents like to blast their music at 3am . One thing that does get my goat is that they charge you for water, sewer , trash , and pest control . that is never stated on their site when you apply . and they require you to have renters insurance so not… See More>

                                              On the whole, it has been pleasant and quiet. The neighbors have not been too loud except when it is party time for some of the single guys. But they have moved on and a quieter and family friendly group have moved in to my end of the building with kids.

                                                I lived there for 6 months. They started off being shady not honoring the promotion they had on rent.com but had not other choice since my work had already transferred me to that area from 2 hours away. There were bugs, leaking ceiling in my bathroom which they left cut up for the last 2 months I lived there. We won't even talk about the neighborhood. The most annoying thing is that it is October and I still have not got my deposit back from May, any written charges or explanation of why, and have not answered a call or returned any of my 15 voicemails over the past 4 1/2 months. I am reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and hopefully that will have some effect since they have no regard for ethics or common decency.
