I'm trying to think of something good...a roof over my head? Nice pool? The pond was cool for watching wildlife. Directly on a busline. Close to shopping. Free cookies in the office. Appliances ok, worked the entirety of our stay. Current management seems pleasant, although not very present. The water aerator in the pond and the train on the west end of the complex is only irritating if one has an intense aversion to that type of noise. We got used to it.<br>Minor annoyances: Fitness room is small; no instruction for machines and some parts missing. Could never get in for the sauna in the winter. Hugely overly bright lighting at doorways. Windows work poorly and let in all kinds of cold in winter. If one lives on the ground floor, one has to watch the lawn watering schedule, or just never open the windows. Nicotine leaching out of the paint in the bathrooms from the humidity.<br>Large elephantine annoyances: Plumbing was a nightmare. Screaming pipes, sewage backing up into sinks. Recently; leaking toilets & suspicious noises of yet another possible back-up of sewage into the tub.<br>We quit calling for repairs of anything not water related. It would just not get done even if they bothered to show up. <br>Never knew what the rent would be each month due to water "sharing" costs. Never understood the overly expensive, small load, coin laundry if we are already spliting water costs(double dipping?). <br>Dog feces everywhere; the lawn is a land- mine of dog-logs. Bag dispensers for feces pick-up perpetually empty.<br>Management changed at least three times during our stay, so the office seemed pretty chaotic. Maybe why we couldn't get repairs. Many, many "inspections" of property due to management changes.<br>Parking was ok although had to park illegally a few times because we couldn't find a spot.<br>Pretty happy to be leaving...
