    The village at fountain lake is the HOOD. Do not i repeat do not move here unless your credit can’t get you anywhere. Trash is everywhere and flies, management sucks and will say everything is out of their hands and they can’t do anything about even small issues which the lease clearly states they do not tolerate it’s all lies!! However if we didn’t pay rent they would honor that part of the lease. Trash is everywhere, management turnover rate is super high, they do have section 8 low credit score tenants, hooptie cars, the grass is rarely cut, they cut it when it’s knee high, they do nothing to loud obnoxious neighbors, the front gate will stay broken for weeks at a time and they keep putting the blame on someone else. It’s never the properties fault. It’s not safe at all the police are always called for some issues or complaints on the property. Even the front office calls the police. They have had drug bust back here. I actually saw two drug bust at the residents’ door. The appliances are super old and outdated, cracks in the concrete which are never fixed they just mark the concrete… See More>

      Absolutely terrible. Lived there 4 years ONLY because there were no other options close to work. Apartments are in horrible condition for the outrageous amount they charge rent. Front office never has answers to your questions and always has problems with billing. They are quick to remind you if you owe them money but are hesitant when they owe you money. Took 4 months for them to get my contract corrected due to overcharging. And just because your online balance says $0 and the front office says that your balance is $0, don't be surprised if you receive a letter from the debt collectors two months after you move out saying you owe $500 and hit you with late fees. Absolute money scam of a business in my opinion. Do not live there! Also, don't let them sell you on the "gated" community sales pitch. Anybody can easily access the property and there were multiple vehicle break ins while I stayed there. Apparently with all the money the complex makes off rent they still can't afford to have surveillance cameras on the property. Brand new apartment complexes across the street have just been built, give them your hard earned money… See More>

        Surprised by any nevative reviews. Moved in 6 months ago. Firstly, the staff- leasing, manager, and maintenance guy couldnt be any nicer. My last complex office staff was crap. Units are nice. Appliances are outdated, but overall spacious and roomy. The gate always works unlike my last apartment complex. Its quiet and seems like majority of young professionals live here. I plan to renew my lease when it expires.

          This is the worst ran apartments I've ever seen. The property manager, Dillon, is an a**!!! When you're dealing with death, and they can't be remorseful it's unprofessional! My sisters ex died in apartment 810, they turned her into collections, when legally, she is not responsible for anything! They charged her for things that were out of her control. It has taken 3 months to get a death certificate and he couldn't be patient for her to get that before she could even move forward with ANYTHING, and then turned her into collections!

            Horrible experience. These are professional scam artists. Intentionally gave no word of warning about small text in lease agreement. Charged me 2x rent (about $3000) for not giving them a move out notice even though move out date was agreed upon signing. Every other apartment I have lived at either had reasonable fees or warned you close to move out date to file a notice. They intentionally left out any warning of the $3000 charge neither at signing nor close to agreed move out date. I do not recommend living here.

              My husband and I moved into these apartments a little over a month ago. The process of applying and being approved for the apartment was very difficult and unclear. We started the process several weeks before our move in date and did not receive final approval until the very last minute. Upon arrival on our move in date we were first given the wrong keys. When we were finally able to get in our apartment we saw that the carpet was not finished, the edges were not stapled down and there were large pieces of carpet padding missing. The baseboards obviously needed painting, the shower door was in very poor shape and there were marks on our walls. The apartment did not look anywhere close to being ready for new renters. Upon further inspection we discovered that we had been given a handicap apartment which meant our kitchen cabinets were extremely (and inconveniently low) the kitchen counter heights were varied and there were an abundance of extra handrails in the master bathroom along with a big clunky seat in the shower. The assistant manager came by to look at the carpet and assured me that the handrails and seat in the… See More>

                After living here for nearly a month, here are the main takeaways my wife and I have come away with: Pros: The location is fantastic. Gonzales is a small city, but FL is in a great spot, just a few minutes from nearly any business you might need to go to. Also, I10 is right around the corner which is nice as well. I don't know if this is the case for everyone else in the complex, but even though we're within eyesight of the interstate (we're in the northwest corner of the complex), I've not had any problems hearing the traffic. The jogging path around the lake is a nice little bonus as well. The complex as a whole is kept in great condition and you can tell the maintenance department works hard at doing a good job. However, the front gate has been open for the last two weeks, so we're not entirely sure what's going on there. If there's some sort of maintenance going on there, we've not been made aware of it. But overall, we've no complaints about the appearance and upkeep of the complex at all. Also, Gonzales just went through the worst flood in 500… See More>

                  My experience was terrible .Here my story please read if you are ready to move out. Make sure that when you give a written notice you get them to sign it, and put it in the computer that day.They will not do it unless you make them.You will end up paying an extra month rent.Also, make them do a walkthrough before you leave.Insist because they will charge you for things that was on the list to be fixed but was gotten to.Office management is totally rude and terrible.When I asked about a matter of an office worker doing her job,it was stated to me that they are not babysitters for tenants.It seems to me they care less about their tenants and try to charge you with everything they can when you move out.Please be sure to shop before living there.You might be better off.I don't sharing my story with anyone who needs more information about what can happen if you are not careful!!!

                    It's pretty much an overpriced rip off. The kitchen units are cheap formica (not even painted underneath, just cheap chipping plywood!)and inside are the cheapest of cheap plastic blinds, cheap carpet and cheap linoleum. the bathrooms aren't put together well, the caulking is coming up around the sinks and none of the fixtures/molding seem to fit together correctly. The staff acts like they're doing you the biggest favor when you ask for routine things and the 'maintenance' guys zoom around the place in their super golf go carts, right past garbage that should be picked up and some kind of leak that smells like raw sewage. the air conditioning also goes out a lot. If you like having a great view of the interstate and paying more for a cheap cheap apt than you would for a decent house, move right in!

                      The Village of Fountain Lake apartments were amazing. The office staff was very nice and courteous, the maintenance guys were very friendly and got the job done. Parking was full right in front of our apartment, but we always wanted to park a little bit away so we wouldn't get door dings. The apartment was clean upon arrival. The landscaping was beautiful, the pool was nice. The layout of the apartment was very weird because you had to walk through the bedroom to get to the only bedroom, but other than that.. The apartment was amazing.

                        Been living here since 9/1/12 and I have to say that the office staff is great! Brittany and Melinda are sweet ladies and know my husband and myself by name and that's nice that they care enough about their residence to learn their names. The maintenance team are polite and very quick to respond to all maintenance work orders. The only cons about living here are indeed the cost of rent, and there seems to not be a lot of installation in between the apartments. If you have a neighbor like ours living above you who just doesn't have respect for others. He blast his volume on his stereo and when he walks it sounds like horses galloping! But those things are a part of apartment living. But the staff is great. Just wish people who are pet owners would follow the pet policies as I do! If you are a animal owner take care of all your animal need including picking their waste up and not allowing them to run wild after other people's animals! I do wish they offered a area for the dogs to go run free and play with other dogs.

                          Fountain Lake is a really nice place to stay in Gonzales. The leasing agents are really helpful and the landscape is pretty great for a place like Gonzales. I would recommend this place 100% over everything else I saw in the city. They are a bit pricy, though

                            Sooo not worth the money. Period.

                            The rent here is outrageous for the service you receive. First off, they raise the rent every time your current lease contract expires. Maintenance? Do they even have maintenance? You put in a work order and it goes for months undone. They NEVER change the air filters. I have lived here almost 3 years and they have changed my air filter once. The staff is constantly changing...they have had a total of 5 different people working there in different positions. They have a new property manager (Melinda) who is not useful, helpful, or even aware of anything in the complex. They just send you letters if you do something wrong. Never once have we been called to do a follow up on a work order to see if it was even done or if something was still wrong. They obviously do not do thorough background checks and basically just let anyone live there. People have parties pretty often or you can hear people having sex and even fighting in the parking lots. They have 2 access gates but they locked one of them making it a total inconvenience for… See More>

                              Great place

                              moved in in August and me and my fiance love it. Michelle is the best and so is Melinda. I can't speak for how it was before but as of today it is a very nice place to call home. Any problems are taken care of very quickly. Also the onsite courtesy officer is always available and makes us feel very safe.

                                This apartment complex is now under new management! She has made a HUGE difference and this place is amazing! The maintenance staff are wonderful and fix things in a timely matter. Chris is my favorite, and Shawn is awesome as well. I always get a greeting from them, no matter how busy they are. I spoke with the manager at the complex about the previous negative comment. She told me they didnt get their deposit back because they totally trashed the apartment. I am very satisfied here and am proud to call Village home! If you ever have questions, feel free to email me! I will tell you, I recommend this place over any other in the Gonzales area!!!!

                                    I have loved living at Fountain Lake for the past 3 years. I just recently transfered to a larger apartment and staff made it so simple and easy. I disagree with the most recent review as the management gives you specific instructions on what you need to do and how the apartment needs to be left so that you are not charged anything. I followed them to the tee and received my full deposit back after move-out. The maintenance staff is very prompt and responds in timely manner to any type of request--evening changing out a light bulb or ac filter for you.

                                      I lived here for 2 years, alway kept things clean, paid rent on time, and still got screwed out of my deposit when I moved out. Maintanence is horrible. The air conditioners go out all the time, probably because they do NO maintenance on them - won't even change the filters unless you call and ask. They raise the rent every 6 months, but do no upkeep. I give them 5 years max before they become public housing.

                                          I have lived at Fountain Lake for many years now and have been very happy and content. The staff was what I felt made the community feel like HOME! I referred many tenants as I was born and raised in Asension and now have my own business here. I don't know what has happened but in the last several months everything has changed forcing me to look elsewhere. I once felt like the Management was on my side, thankful for my residency & accomodating to my needs (big or small). I no longer feel this way. The staff is very cold and in my opinion is forcing me to look on for a comfortable community everyone wants to, "Call Home". I am scared and always worried that the staff is only looking out for their best interest/to make more money. What notice will be on my door today? Parking violation? Balance notice? (their error)? ... I only came to this site to look for a new place and in doing so I felt I should make my peace and state my opinion and only hope that someone in management will read… See More>

                                            I've lived in several apartments over the past few years and the management here is by far the most accomodating, friendly and responsive I've seen. I had a few issues when I fist moved in last week but they were handled quickly and surpassed my expectations. Highly recommended. Hope the next year here is as good as the first week.

I am highly disappointed that the new property manager came in on a power trip and fired the two reasons that I leased at Fountain Lake. The two girls in the office were extremly helpful and went out of their way to assist me with whatever they could. For this reason alone , I will not be renewing my lease and will be sure to spread the word that the managment is going downhill. DO NOT RENT HERE!!!!
