This place is a joke! 1. They don't take care of long time residents. Several residents have the "classic" apartments and when it comes time to renew they up the rent to the same price as the renovated. 2. They charge you hidden fees like $25… See More

When i first started my lease, the new management was just getting started. The leasing manager was extremely rude, I was promised a specific unit I never got, but she was quickly replaced I have been very pleased with my experience. I'd give Runaway Bay 9.5/10… See More

Don't expect to have any friends over if you live here. Their cars will be towed and they'll have to pay $153 to get it out. I've had two friends now towed. It's freaking ridiculous. Why do they expect that 20 something visitor spots is enough… See More

Horrible to a vast understatement to describe this place and 1 star is far too generous. This place is an abortion. The management is incompetent and inept; and again, that's still be far too nice. If you live here or are thinking about it, please read… See More

There is a reason why it's called Runaway Bay -- because you need to run the **** away as soon as you can. I have had NOTHING but issues from the moment I moved in this year. One of the office ladies has conveniently forgotten to… See More

I wouldn't recommend this apartment complex. They will give you less than 24 hours notice to enter your apartment, by leaving a paper outside your door, not calling or emailing for permission. Information on your apartment is constantly lost because of the constant rotation of management,… See More
