Resident 2011 - 2013

6/25/2013

I stayed in Point O' Woods for two years, with my girlfriend. We even lived in two different units (the first year, all that was available was an upstairs apartment, which tend to get hotter in the summer, because heat rises, so when our lease was up, we moved into a ground-floor unit). I have to say that it's probably one of the best apartment complexes in town that I even know of, for the money. Let me get a few things out of the way first: - Yes, these apartments are old. They were built quite a while ago. But, guess what? Unlike new apartments, they ACTUALLY don't mind fixing and replacing and renovating things! Why? 'Cause they didn't just spend eleventy-billion dollars 2 years ago building the entire complex and putting in diamond-encrusted countertops that don't serve you any purpose but to increase the cost of your apartment, so they don't need to sit there and worry about paying off the building construction for the next 20 years, and conserve all their money by rationing out little repairs. The maintenance here ROCKS! Seriously... I can't really think of a time when we had a little snag, and they didn't come fix it pretty much WITHIN AN HOUR! I kid you not. I'm pretty sure those guys could rebuild your whole apartment on-the-fly, if they needed to. And you only have a 30-year-old appliance if it still works fine. The second it doesn't, you know what they do? They wheel in a brand new one and hook it up in friggin' 30 minutes. Again, they take care of their stuff, so they get their money's worth out of things. So, when you need a replacement, they don't try to frankenstein one together out of parts from a bunch of other units' broken ones, just to save the cost of getting that unit a new appliance. - Yes, they aren't luxury apartments, but the grounds are nicer than a lot of other apartment grounds I've seen/lived on. I mean, for a decently small complex, they have TWO gorgeous, always-immaculately-clean pools! And huge shade-gazebo patio things beside each one, with grills and all. - Yes, the parking could be a little better... It's just kind of all up the middle. But, hey, there's plenty of it (for friends and such to come over), and it's never INSANELY far from any unit's front door. - Yes, the old floors are a little creaky. The upstairs ones, I mean (the ground floor sits on concrete and earth... that pretty much shouldn't EVER be creaky.) BUT, you really won't hear your neighbors TOO much unless they're just stompity, noisy people. Even then, it's not so bad, really. It's not like waking-you-up loud, or I-can't-even-watch-this-movie annoying or anything. Also, they have a no stupid 2AM music policy, and they stick to it, so you'll never come home from a long day of work (or have to get to bed early for a long day of work) and fail to do so because of people who've decided they want to show off their sound system at 4AM. Or ever, really, for that matter. Also, the walls are quite thick and well-insulated, actually. I've been standing at my front door, finding my key, and heard my next-door neighbors excitedly watching sports and being somewhat "loud," only to enter the apartment (now with only a wall between myself and them), close the door, and IMMEDIATELY hear the sound of their voices (through their front door/wall, mind you) cut off into silence. The location is great, too. It's kind of "right in the middle" of Hattiesburg. If you need to get on Hardy Street and head downtown, it's only like 4-or-so miles, total, to get allll the way to the downtown edge of Hattiesburg. If you want to head out west to Target/Walmart/Turtle Creek Mall, you just turn the other way. If traffic's bad on Hardy Street, you can just turn left out of the complex and get on 4th street, and go down parallel to Hardy until you get where you're going. Need to get to 49 to head up to Jackson or something? It's only about a mile away. Need to get to the USM campus? You're only about a mile away. You could probably walk to campus in 10 minutes. I mean, you're technically on campus in about 3 minutes. But, it's the edge, so your classes are probably a little farther. But, what with parking now (although I haven't tried it since the parking garage was built on the USM campus), it might be faster than driving and parking somewhere, only to then have to walk from there. Also, for what it's worth, the Longleaf Trace is VERY close by. It's across 4th street, and you kind of have to walk through another small apartment complex's parking lot to get down to it (the trace goes beneath 7th street, JUST on the other side of 4th), but it's easily within walking distance if you don't mind crossing the street. All-in-all, these are awesome apartments, for your money. They're not the absolute cheapest apartments, ever, but that's because you're actually paying for effort, care, and quality. I guarantee you you could find 5 or 6 other complexes in town, easily, that don't really offer any more than these do, and are hundreds more expensive. And are in far worse locations, etc. And don't have 2 pools and an awesome staff. So, do yourself a favor, and check them out.
