Horrible management!!! There was a snake in my apartment on the kitchen floor and all management (Amberly) told me was... "next time don't get a ground level apartment". They did absolutely NOTHING about it!!!! Don't bother telling them when you have any other issues because they… See More

The Good: If you lease longer, they are able to offer you a discount on the rent. When I got my lease, it was for 14 months and they took $100 off the rent for each month (prorated). The only utility that you directly have control… See More

Overall, it was a poor experience living at Waters Edge. The "renovated" apartments were renovated as cheaply as possible, so we had issues with what was renovated in our apartment. The walls are paper thin and you can literally hear people just walking around their apartment.… See More

Please contact the office to further explain exactly what you are referring to. We have had the same move in special for a little over 30 days now and have not changed it at all, let alone every "two minutes". Additionally, renewal offers are good for 14 days. A resident would not be aware of who is being evicted or who is moving out for personal reasons, therefore the statement that "we evict people constantly" is not accurate information. There is not an apartment community out there that allows residents to live for free. Due to the legal process for eviction, it takes anywhere from 45 - 60 days to evict, therefore a resident would have to be pretty far behind to be evicted and it would be absolutely warranted at that point. Additionally, when a resident constantly disturbs their neighbors and/or breaks the rules that are in place to protect everyone, yes, we will evict them as well, that's the right thing to do. Anyone who is considering moving here will appreciate that fact. You are welcome to comparison shop for rent, as you had the opportunity to do when you decided to sign a lease here, we are comparatively priced to comparable communities in comparable locations with similar amenities. Again, I urge you to give us the opportunity to provide you with good customer service by stopping by the office to have a conversation about the issue that you need resolved. Although, good customer service does not mean we can let you get behind on your rent.

Horrible; disgusting.... management is rude... apartments were remodeled in 1970.... this place SUCKS; I wouldn't let my worst enemy live here. Unless of course they were a drug addict or hooker; then I'd refer them all day long. I'll find a place down the road. See More
