The apartment complex is nice and relatively clean. The staff, in my experience, have always been friendly, professional, and punctual when handling maintenance issues. A refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer are all included with the apartment.

Yes, you can pay online by setting up an autodraft from your account using bank info. Or, you can visit the office each month swipe your debit card or pay cash. I am pretty sure checks are also accepted. I used the autodraft and it worked just fine.
