Don't expect anything to get fixed

I have lived here for 4 years. I've had to use my own washer and dryer for 2 of those years because the complex couldn't provide one that worked. The photos show just some of the issues that are not handled. The lady in the office only wants to show work orders that are open. Maintenance will come by to look at things then leave and the ticket gets closed, never fixing anything until physically going to the office and demanding things to be fixed. ( 1 out of 5 might get done). 4 years and every year they offer to clean my carpets, then never clean the carpets. Ceiling in the garage actually fell on my wife's car, they then came to look at the leak. I am buying a house and give 30 day notice. I was informed that it's 60 day notice and it starts when you fill out their form. My lease is up at the end of August, so 1 month before it ends and, again informed it woul be a buyout of rent X 3= $4200 to move out. I have ben threatened with fines for things I didn't do, lied too repeatedly, and… See More>

    I lived at Mansions At Ivy Lake for year and half and I just have one word to you if you want to live in this place, you are making the biggest mistake in your life, not kidding. Now here are some reasons that I experienced with them. 1- if you sign contract for 1 year or 6 month, you can't break the contract, if you need to break the contract you have to pay for 5 month (2 month as a notice and 3 month as a penalty) 2- the road inside community was damaged and after 3 month they fixed it. there is mandatory 75 dollar charge for cleaning carpet when you move out. 3- they charged me 210 dollar for clean the carpet and the other things that I don't know what is that and they returned the rest of my deposit after 2 month. 4-you have to get insurance for apartment by yourself. 5- when I moved to one bedroom apartment the washing mashin did not work and it tolk 1 week to changed it. 6- if you want to pay online for your rent there is 35$ extra charge on the website. 7- literly they… See More>

      I was in the complex for almost 2 years, and the management turnover was the worst thing to happen to the place. M***** (as she has sent me an email threatening legal action the name has been updated. ha) is young and inexperienced and feels the need to bully the residents into submission. She has threatens eviction every chance she gets, even without legal backing when anyone disagrees with her. I have (as well as several neighbors) had issues with mice. I have killed over 14 of them and have reported at least 4 times and they have refused to do anything about it. Pulled out my fridge to see a massive hole and also one in a closet. The mice were destroying my food and overall disgusting. I paid far too much to live with an infestation issue. Also, considering how much people pay in rent, they rarely do more than the bare minimum to maintain the property, if you complain, you get yelled at and told to leave, if you disagree. The tenants are wonderful people. However, the lack of common respect and unwillingness to do above the bare minimum has forced me to move. Overpriced and undermanaged.

        DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE!! The management here is terrible and they will pinch every penny they can out of you! They call themselves a luxury apartment but it is far from that. I have absolutely nothing good to say about this place. Just beware!

          Keep moving when it comes down to these apartments. The office staff are horrible and have nasty --- attitudes like their ---- doesn't stink. Both the manager and the assistant manager are very rude. I have lived here for a little while and I can't wait until my lease is up. I don't recommend these apartments to anyone. They don't come and fix any problems that you may have. When you call and ask a question they have an attitude when answering your question. When trying to call the office the answering service always picks up due to the manager not being there half of the time and you have the assistant manager always out on the property taking selfies around the property with her selfie stick. A few months back the manager was on leave and the assistant manager was in charge and that was the biggest mistake. She played the entire time she was in charge. How I know is because I am always walking the property and I see her all of the time playing around. My lease will be up soon and I am getting the HELL away from here and moving down the street to… See More>

            I visited back in September with the Asst Manager Nia. I was very reluctant about visiting after reading the bad reviews but was in need of a garage. Upon arrival I was satisfied but not totally impressed. I toured the property and was highly impressed with the professionalism and personality of the staff. I felt like finding my new apartment was Nias top priority without the sales pitch. I am happy to say I have moved in and this experience has been the best I have encountered in a very long time.

              Good thing we stopped when we did or we would have had a real mess on our hands. They said the company they use for their background check called my husband a criminal. He has FBI approval. Very disparaging to my husband when they did not have correct information. We are now filing a lawsuit for defamation of character. Anyone else need to do a class action lawsuit? They refuse to give him his money back after their behavior.

                Love the apartments but the management is the worst, they sent me a letter a year or so after I moved stating I messed up the carpet, and wants me to pay, I took pictures of everything when I left totally cleaned the apartment like new. They are unfair, put my name in the credit bureau for something I never received upon move in. Never trust what they tell you upon sign in, and make sure you get it in writing. I got used carpet from previous tenants, had it clean MYSELF and they want me to pay for new....of course I am fighting this one!

                  Absolutely terrible management! Beware before you move in. Seems like a nice place to live but very inconvient place to live. Worst part is moving out they will try to screw you over anyway they can. Be careful what you sign and read it thoroughly. They will overcharge you for repairs, painting, and cleaning. Never have I ever been charged for the maintence that should be their overhead as example carpet cleaning to spotless carpet or painting charges because of a scuff or 2 and you hung pictures. It's impossible to get furniture in the apartment without touching the wall. And the paint is super cheap so you will be charges too.They are not willing to work with you what so ever and they are only out for next dollar they can get out of you. I lived there for a very short period and ended up with almost 800 dollars worth of extra charges to their early lease buy out program. DO NOT DO ANY BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE YOU WILL REGRET IT...

                    I have lived in apartments for a majority of the last 7 years and Mansions at Ivy Lakes was BY FAR the worst apartment complex I've ever had the unfortunate displeasure to call home.

                      Looks of complex are different of the real living experience! We could not use the pool because of all the teens that hung out cursing and acting like thugs! I told them I felt like I was in the middle of DRUG ALLEY because of the vehicles and people that live there. I lived there 6 months did not hang but 3 pics and get a bill when I move out for paint and some other BS for 230.00. Over priced and def did not feel safe!!!

                        RENTERS BEWARE! ! The overall appeal of the complex is deceiving. The complex is off the main road and you have to take a drive up a long driveway to get to the actual complex which makes it feel as if you've found something exclusive. Once you move in all of that is gone. I cannot stress enough, if you do decide to live here, insist that you are shown the ACTUAL apartment you will be living in BEFORE you sign the lease. On my day of move in, the counters were dirty, toilets not cleaned and stained, blinds were dirty, the garbage disposal did not work, and the ceiling fans were caked with dirt! Thank god I documented everything b/c they tried to screw me when I moved out. The only parking you will have is your garage and IF you have a spot in front of it that. Parking in anywhere but the very back of the complex is a nightmare. No light fixtures on the ceiling fans. Repairs done to the unit was shabby, fixtures for lights installed badly, holes around windows patched up with caulking then painted over. One of the maintenance guys bragged about… See More>

                          I am always skeptical when I read negative reviews online, but I definitely should have believed them in this case. Calling this place "luxury" is a joke. The apartment finishes are cheap, they "do not provide ceiling light fixtures in the bedrooms" even though the apartment is wired for lights & ceiling fans, the appliances are extremely cheap (my refrigerator growled, the washing machine was constantly broken, they never blew out the dryer vent line so it would take all day to dry a load of towels), low water pressure, no parking so cars parked wherever. The prices they charge for this crap are ridiculous!! Then they fabricate excuses for keeping your deposit when you move out. I have never been so happy to get out of a place then when I moved out of here.

                            Overall this apt. complex is just crap for the prices they advertise and charge. The parking situation was a mess, there were very little parking places so the friends that I had over from time to time struggled to find anywhere to park. I did love the fact that there were enclosed garages but that's the only positive I could give about this place. I had noisy neighbors and they always had guests who parked outside of my apt. on the curb. The appliances are extremely cheap but I didn't have problems with any of them. There were often times when the water pressure in my unit was extremely low but I don't know if that was specific to my unit or the whole complex. I liked the fact that it is a gated complex even though the gates were often broken and would not be fixed promptly. The gates were really slow so more than one vehicle could go through at once and if there was a line then every car would be able to get through even without a card. They do have a trash service that will pick up your trash for you during the week. Some… See More>

                              I have lived at the Mansions for a few of years now. I'm hoping to buy a house in the near future, but for now, this is where I am. After reading some of these reviews, I do agree with some things; however, not everything these other reviews are saying. The last manager didn't care too much about the property. I guess she cared more about being people's friend than she did about making the property run. Tiffany is the new manager now and I can see how dedicated her and the staff are. There's only so much you can do when you have residents that don't care about the property. I even asked one of the office people a few months back why there's so many kids living here and they said that the can't talk about it because of fair housing. I do agree that the kids are a majority of the problem, but then it's the parents fault for not handling up on their kids--not the office staff. I am happy with my two bedroom apartment. It's very spacious (especially the master bedroom), although I hate the stairs. But I have learned from past apartments not to… See More>

                                Never again. We left a year and a half ago and I can honestly say it was the worst year of my life living here. My upstairs neighboor often left her kids home alone when they were sick and after school while she was at work, (all 3 under the age of 8) they even managed to catch something on fire in the oven one day. I could smell smoke so I walked outside and sure enough 2 kids were out on the balcony and every window was open. The mom got there shortly after and started yelling at them for using the oven. My favorite was when she left her kids home to go out drinking only to come home at 2 am drunk and banging on the door (which was right next yi my 7 month olds bedroom windows) because her kids locked herout. Did I mention she worked for the apartment complex? When I complained they told me I would need proof, I got it easily since the cops got to witness the drunk lockout. Then she moved to another apartment. Also as another review stated there were always kids… See More>

This place is built horribly, we have ants constantly, kids constantly throw food and candy everywhere and my dog gets a hold of it when I walk him. When we moved in there were so many things wrong with the apartment. The downstairs window leaked water when it rained, ants, clogged drains, broken food disposal, dirty toilet, urine stains on it everywhere. The office staff is stuck up and could care less about residents well being...We built a home and are being forced out of our apt because we had to push our closing date on our home a few weeks later. They are putting us out and they don't care. We paid a lot of money to live here and were never late on rent, we were good tenants and it doesn't matter. ..they want to charge fees for EVERYTHING, they are money hungry and don't deserve it. There is not enough parking, people take up places when they visit leaving RESIDENTS to park outside our apartment door....then STAFF send out letters saying they will tow tenant cars if we don't park in parking spots.....THEN MAKE MORE PARKING… See More>

In the winer months there's an ongoing RAT infestation that they cannot seem to control. They keep hiring these kids to run these apartment complexes. I guess to pay them less... Well, if that's what they want to do. Then PLEASE DO NOT call it a MANSION. Call it The Mansions of a hott ------ mess!! I've seen them reading these post and trying to figure out which tenants wrote them. So be carful guys!!

                                      My husband and I moved here 7 months ago with his company. The company only stayed for 3 months, but we are here for a few years. Long story short, after the temporary summer lease was up, we got sucked into a NEW one year agreement (SOOOOO wish we hadn't... living with friends for a week until we got into a new place would have been better than a whole year here). My MAJOR complaints: 1) the whole "gated community" thing is absolutely bogus. The gates break SOOOO often, and stay broken for periods up to 72 hours. This REALLY bothers me because this is the whole reason we pay so much to live here. I sent the management an email expressing how I felt about the gate, and NO ONE even contacted me back. 2) maintenance sucks. We often have to call several times to get things fixed. The day we moved in, we unpacked and organized everything under our bathroom sink, then later that night, when water was spilling out from the cupboards onto the floor, we saw that the pipe was BROKEN when we had moved in. 3) Management seems to be just a bunch of selfish… See More>

                                        Been here for about 6 months and can't wait to leave. Neighbors that moved in after we did and above us have kids that stomp and run around all the time. It's nearly constant and drives us up a wall. Even a friend that slept over was woken up one morning by them. We called management and they don't care no matter how nice they seem on the phone. They don't follow through on anything. Won't even call the next day after your complaint(I have made several). Said they would come up with a solution and call us back but never called. When we originally viewed the apartments they told us about the concrete layer between the apartments and that we would only really hear upstairs neighbors if they drop something heavy. This is bull. They shouldn't allow people with such rowdy kids to live in an upstairs unit. On top of that the kids parent's are more concerned with being outside and smoking on their balcony than watching their kids. This place is loaded with kids and parents that don't care(I rarely see these kids' parents). I'm talking… See More>

                                          We have lived in our apartment for nearly 3 years. Upstairs, 1 BR, 1 car garage. We have had no major maintenance issues (granted, we were the first and only people to live in this unit). We rarely hear any noise from our next door neighbors' apartments. I think they are a little overpriced, but we were willing to pay more to be farther from the interstate, in a safe area, have a garage for a least one care, a full size washer and dryer in the unit, and not have to take our trash out to a dumpster (curb side pick up). The other two comparable apartment complexes in the area are very close to the interstate, and one is not in the nicest part of town. Maintenance has usually been prompt for the few issues we did have (minor A/C issue and a minor heater issue which were both fixed promptly). There are lots of little kids that play around the complex, but the noise doesn't bother us, and they are in by dark. Biggest complaints are the lack of available parking and the gym equipment which seems to break… See More>

                                            Not worth the money.

                                            Three points: 1. This place is in the sticks. 2. This place is really over-priced. 3. The management of is trying really hard to push over-priced apartments that are close to nothing. The sales tactics are high pressure, and the offer you are made on the initial inquiry may well change by the time you're ready to sign. I'd recommend not wasting your time or money to drive out there.

                                              I can't say its good overall

                                              It looks ideal from the outside, but don't expect quiet. People let their children run wild basically and I never see a parent around. I guess they don't want their kids yelling and carrying on by their own apartment and just put them out to annoy everyone else. The feral kids will also look in your windows, for long periods or at least until you let them know you can see them, if you open your blinds. However, they will do it again 5 minutes later even if you run them off. Like I said feral kids, no parents in sight. If you live downstairs you will also hear everything going on above you. Complaining hasn't seemed to help, neither has banging on the ceiling repeatedly. The parking is decent but since people are always parking along the curbs where they shouldn't it can be troublesome to drive in/out manuvering around cars and the roaming kids. The staff is really nice, one of the maintenance people seems to have attitude but it is only show. Call his bluff and the attitude disappears. Maybe he just had a bad day that day,… See More>

                                                Best Apartments in Gonzales

                                                I have lived at Mansions for more than a year and I love it! Although I agree that the materials and workmanship of the construction is cheap and sub-standard, one must bear in mind that it is an APARTMENT, not a house. Besides, the staff and most of the residents more than make up for it. Overall it really is a lovely apartment and complex. Parking is adequate IF you are in compliance with the lease regulations of one vehicle per adult resident. Love the pool and the good times we have shared there. Thanks Robin, Wendy and Becky! You guys are super great!!!

                                                  Great Place to LIVE it UP!!!

                                                  I have lived here for over a year. We moved in while construction was still going on but we really like it. Overall a great place to live. The office staff is super nice and will try to do everything they can to make your stay perfect. They have a great pool, exercise room, bus. center and lots of more great features. The only bad thing I have to say and it really is not with the appartment complex but with the people that live here, the speed of the driving around the apartments. I have two small children and it is nice for them to get out and ride there bikes or just kick a ball around but it's really hard for them to enjoy when people go 50 mph. They have put up signs for this reason but still has not helped but there is only so much they can do and I understand that. I understand this is not a play ground but we are all here for a reason and I think people should leave a little earlier if they are running late and try not to run over peoples… See More>
