Would consider Runaway Bay top of its class. You can get better paying $2000/mo somewhere else.. I'm not in that bracket. Apartment complexes come in 4 flavors. Dumps, Average, Nice, Luxury. This is the top end of Nice. See More

Overall this is a decent place. The staff is very nice. Maintenance is visibly on top of things--keeping sidewalks shoveled and preventative salting. Great snow removal crew.
