My husband and I have been living at Autumn Lakes for just under two years. Generally, we don't have much to complain about! PROS: The apartment exteriors are beautiful, the landscaping is nice, I even enjoy seeing deer from time to time. It's a quiet area, and there are cops that live in the apartments all around (very comforting). As a young woman, I have never felt unsafe even walking around the complex at night. Having the Meijer close is one of my favorite things - it's so convenient. The office staff is generally friendly, but if you have an urgent request for maintence, you really have to bug them to get it done. I do miss David, who moved to another job. Wanda is also great. Having a washer and dryer in the unit is nice! We haven't had any major appliance problems except for or AC. Having two walk in closets is super nice! CONS: We live on the 3rd floor with the big crescent window. It looks great but the sun bakes us every spring/summer afternoon. We pay super high summer electric bills because our AC gives out every time it gets over 80 degrees and it will take maintence days to come to fix it. As someone else pointed out, the walls are super thin. We don't have as much problem heading the people next to us, but the people below us. In certain "spots" in the apartment, you could hear every word of the people below's conversation. Every time someone closes a sliding door, it makes a huge sound that shakes the whole building. Also, whenever someone opens the main building door, the air pressure makes it sound like someone is trying to open your door. I think a lot of this is just cheap materials. There isn't great communication between office and maintence and tenants. If you make a maintence request and tell them they can enter the apartment, they won't give you any sort of heads up when they're coming. I Work 2nd shift sometimes and if I make a request, I never know if I'm going to walk out of the shower to find some guys in my apartment. A heads up call would be nice. The cabinets are honestly the worst. They're so ugly, but that's pretty minor. The outside is so nice, and I think they could justify their prices if they updated the inside to reflect the outside.
