Resident • 2011 - 2013 Not Recommended
I have lived in several rental apartments and homes over the past 11 or so years and Huron Flats and Cabrio Properties has BY FAR been my worst experience. Yes, the apartment looks nice at first glance, but you will quickly notice how cheap and fragile everything in the place is. First, the good things about the place: -Decent location on the west side of Ann Arbor -Parking is convenient with 1 spot in the parking lot per apartment plus ample street parking nearby -Close to a bus stop -Aesthetically pleasing apartment interiors (at first glance) -Small fitness center located in the basement Now the cons: -Floor vents constantly coming apart if anything even lightly taps them -Paint chips off the walls if anything even just lightly scrapes against them -Mold growing in the bathroom that is impossible to remove -Maintenance comes without warning (which is illegal) and pays no attention to the care of your personal items. -I am scared to open and close the vertical blinds because they constantly falling out -The water in our apartment tastes and smells moldy. There is clearly something wrong with the plumbing system but every time we file a maintenance request with Cabrio they tell us they can't find anything wrong and essentially act like we are crazy. We now only drink bottled water for fear of our tap water being a health hazard. -Apartments are poorly insulated and so the building is horribly noisy from both other tenants and the street traffic -Since I've lived there the furnace has gone out in the building not once, not twice, not three, but FOUR times in the middle of winter. FOUR TIMES! and each of these times it was 12 - 24 hours of freezing our butts off before Cabrio fixed the problem -The windows in the apartments are tiny and do not allow for any air flow through the apartment. I'm sure I could write paragraphs about how horrible Cabrio and Huron Flats are but I'll stop now. Just take my advice and stay FAR, FAR away from Huron Flats as well as Cabrio Properties. It could be worse I'm sure but for the price it is not at all worth it. Worst rental experience of my life!
