Go find a place better at ANY price

I was in no hurry to move, but while looking, stumbled across this apartment complex. It's wonderful to say the least. Sure, kids yell. Where I owned my home, in a cul de sac, it was 20 times worse!! The kids were out of control there, and riding electric vehicles in the street, and throwing illegal fireworks on our homes. Maintenance? WE WERE the maintenance there! So just sit back and think of how things COULD be. I hear no noise once I shut my door, and people are very friendly. Once you say hello, they go out of their way to say hi when they see you. Maybe some of the people complaining are the ones that are grouchy to start with. But I've had nothing but positive experiences thus far.

    My Experience

    I am currently a resident in this complex and I like these apartments. It is a bit pricey but is very spacious. I can admit, now there are a lot of people moving in here that I consider weirdos and would not like to have around my daughter but I stay to myself and I am fine. As far as the winter goes, I do agree with the other reviews, the team could respond in a timely fashion but I keep in mind that they do not live in these complexes and are hard to travel to and from in bad weather. As far as management, I love Ashleigh! She is very helpful and nice. Each month, there is a promotion and you have an opportunity to gain something from renting. Also as a word of mouth gift, you are compensated financially! They also recently built a better playground for the children! No more old choo choo train! lol. As far as maintenance, I do not and never had a problem with anyone not responding. They try their best to accommodate everyone's need. I like my experience at Whisperwood but I will be moving out when my lease is up… See More>

      I am not a tennant there but my friends just moved in, they have the greatest deal around, managment team were very friendly and resourcefull as well. In my experiance from my observation i was very impressed how everything was processed and i was specially impressed with the walk around never seen any complex sending in head or maintenance to do walk around ever that was a knock out. I am also part of law enforcement i have not yet observed any criminal activity nor complaints in the area. The new management team has the place well undercontrol and has created a great friendly atmosphere...

        From law enforcement perspective

        I am currently a police officer in Harrisburg City. We have a very good relationship with Susquehanna Township Police which is where Whisperwoods is located. I speak from first hand experience when I tell you this is by far the absolute worst complex to live in the region. It is not as crime ridden as areas like Alison Hill in the city, but for the price they expect their tenants to pay, they should have a safer environment. It is unsafe, dirty, and the staff that run it are borderline criminal. You want to RUN away from the complex. There are plenty of other complexes in the area with better deals and safer environments.

          Great Place to Live

          I have nothing but good things to say about Whisperwood. It has been a joy living here. The community is well kept and safe in my eyes. George and Cindy are always friendly and my maintenance requests are always completed on time. The office is always running contests for money off the rent and are always greeting me by my name. I would recommend living here.

            AWFUL

            I moved here from 17th st in hbg! This place is not any better! The management is awful, they are all goody goody till you sign the lease. Then if you have a problem they just tell you to call the police! When it snows nothing is done. Some neighbors are nice but, the other ones you feel almost like you need to sleep with your eyes open! The noise level is outrageous, kids running wild in and out the buildings and dont think they wont ring your buzzer!I am on the second floor and the person above me was sick one time and you could hear it through the ceiling! That is how poorly they are built! There is no playground for kids it is the front part of a wooden train! Some kids are also smoking and burning the stair well but no one seem to want to do anything! To put it short DONT RENT you might as well live in the city and pay 1/2 the price!!

              My Wonderful Whisperwood Apartment feels like a HOME!

              I read the previous review and honestly feel that particular tenant has the WRONG complex!!! First of all. The apartments here are SPACIOUS!!! We have a 2 bedroom, which is 1,100 sq ft! 2 gigantic walk in closets so large my kid turned hers into a huge playroom! Mine is large enough to be a small den or study, however it is used for storage. And then there are additional closets in the bedrooms and foyer. Downstairs storage. Washer dryers! How convenient!!! Our Apartment has brand new cabinets, light fixtures, and I have only had 3 incidences to call maintenance. And I have lived here 3 years!!! Minor stuff. A minor situation with my fridge. A minor ceiling paint job in our bath. And 3 weeks ago my ceiling bulb lighting went out in my kitchen, -which has high ceilings. Maintenance was prompt and thorough, as always! I have not experienced the "crime" "dirt" or any of the negative. Have not witnessed drug dealers. So perhaps the marijuana the previous tenant smelled was for medicinal purposes ??? As for the staff. The buildings are maintained excellently by the cleaning technician. Always Clean; Always Disinfected; etc. Sometimes small children may make… See More>

                Terrible place to live!

                This is the absolute worst apartment. I have lived in 3 different complexes in Harrisburg and 4 in Western Pa. This is easily the worst. Crime is rampant, apartments are small, dirty and dated. Staff in the office is not helpful in the least esp. current crew like Ashleigh & company. It's a disgusting apartment. Maintenance tried to be helpful when things broke, but they were niether given the funds/equipment to address the issue or possessed the ability to fix things. Not a bargain either! Every other apartment smelled like marijuana. It seemed like a hub for drug dealers.

                  DONT MOVE HERE

                  This place is very bad. Studd hardly ever gets fixed properly due to the fact that they only have 1 maintainence person for the entire complex. During the winter it takes forwver for the parking lot and sidewalks to get plowed. Apartments are very big but very outdated. The cabinents never close proberly and the bathrooms are very old and small. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

                    Worst Place Ever

                    This place is really bad. For starters maintainance never fixes anything. It got so bad that I had to start fixing things myself. During the winter months they never plow or shovel in a timely manner. I was actually late for work before because the parking lot wasn't plowed. Rent is to high for the service that you get here. Office Staff are very rude and not friendlly at all after yiou move in. I can't wait for our lease to be up so we can get out of here!!!!!!

                        Nice Change in Management

                        I have lived here for three years. It is nice to see management that really cares. The common areas are really clean. The staff is very friendly. Service calls are timely done. Rents are a good value and heat is included!!! I love the location--GREAT shopping and food. Don't listen to the nay-sayers, see for yourself. I really like it...plus, they have a pool and playground for my son.

                          The person who wrote that last review is NUTS. A $3000 deposit?! Right-o. Actually the security deposit is one months rent. And I love the new management. They are trying to make improvements in these hard economic times. And I have a nice spacious 2 bedroom for $785. They do have pet rent but that is $30 a month and they ALWAYS have a coupon on the website. Hell, the office ladies have it on their desk. There are a lot of kids but that it so be expected anywhere, and if you don't like it...move to a retirement community. If you liked being taken care of with maintenance issues or whatever, then WW is a nice place to live.

                            This apartment complex has horrible new management triple crown that has added fees and raised the rent to a whopping $845 for a 2 bdrm and its a project(want-to be hood) like development but hasn't renovated the interior or exterior structures.Everything inside of these apartments is falling apart.Only 1 person can fit in the kitchen at a time..Yes it's that small in the kitchens.the appliances in kitchen are outdated don't work properly the lam. tile on floors are peeled up.Tiles in baths are chipped and broken stained.The plumbing always backs up.There is the bug issues in the summer.The complex allows section 8/Welfare that have 7 (2 adults 5 children)people in one unit living together.(2bdrms)There is constant flow of drug dealers roaming through the parking lots in the summer time and hoodlum kids that parent's don't watch.Who vandelize cars, curse out adults,run around on the street,hit peoples cars with their biclycles put mulch in cars. also small dogs running around without leashes/And the careless leashless owner that doesn't clean up after them.All of this goes on and they had cameras and SECURITY at the time.What a joke!!!(BUT got rid of the cameras and security)But of course these problems haven't… See More>

                              I recommend it, I would go back but my family out grew it.

                              I was afraid of what I read about the Brook and chose Whisperwood even over Beaufort. Williamsburg Estates i thought might be too much not sure we would have that much income to afford it. Well Whisperwoods. I lived there for 6 month lease and then renewed it for a full year. My rent was in the mid 600's and I lived in building 41. I worried about it being noisy and unsafe as I was pregnant when we moved in. Well to my surprise it was quiet compared to the twin house I grew up in just out side of Philly. Neighbors were very friendly and I miss them all. Parking -there was no fighting over parking spots, there were more spots than tenants, way more. Maintenance and landscaping - our first snow storm was awful removal but Sharon saw to getting a new crew after she got the complaints of how many of us had to dig each other out. That never happened again in fact with the cooperation of my building we had the cleanest lot when the plow came we worked with him to get all the car spots by the door cleared so no fighting for… See More>

                                The apartment is a great size for its price and I have more closet space than I know what to do with. With heat included it is definitely one of the better bargains in the area. Sometimes you can hear other apartments, but it has never been a problem. The staff has always been ready to help me with questions and concerns. Locks on outside doors make it a pretty secure place to live - I live alone and work at night and I've never felt really unsafe. Parking has never been an issue, I always get right up next to my building.

                                  This place used to be bad a year ago(car breakins,drug dealing in the parking lot).The management here is great and they do care,they hired security here over the summer and got rid of the problems and problem people,the rent is moderately priced and they allow pets.(Some of the tenents here with the little dogs don't clean up after them I guess they think that because they are small they don't have to..So us big dog owners have to go out and clean up after them too...Wish that wasn't a problem)..But now that the trash in most of the buildings is gone it is a much better place to live and I plan on renewing my lease this year.The apts are also in a good school district and the school is great.

                                    Whisperwood was the first apartment complex I lived in in Pennsylvania. Other than the fact I loathe this state Whisperwood hasn't helped too much in changing my mind. It reminds me a lot of a depressing project. Everything is brown! The buildings are brown, the walls are brown (inside the stairway), the stairs are brown, the carpets are brown, the doors are brown, the cabinets inside are older than dirt AND brown. The lack of lighting is also depressing. You get two windows if you live in a one bedroom. Also in the one bedroom there isn't a dishwasher. None of the apartments have a washer & dryer so if you become the unlucky tenant (like me) and live on the third floor enjoy your hike up and down the stairs to the washer & dryer. The pool situation is just disgusting. There aren't any restrooms located near the pool so I've stayed far away during my entire year lease because I'm quite afraid to swim in kiddie pee (the number of kids infesting that pool during the day is ridiculous). The door to your apartment is very shabby and very thin. The walls are thick but you can hear everything… See More>

                                      NOTHING HAS CHANGED!!!!Any reviewer giving that tenement good marks must either be an Idiot, or has gained some sort of reward from their management to have posted it(OR IS SOMEONE IN MANAGEMENT).Only giving a rating of ONE because ZERO is not an option.PUBLIC HOUSING PROJECT posing as a suburban apartment complex. Violent tenants have STABBED one another(check with police).Theft of mail and packages from mailboxes and packages delivered to your door and dropped off are common. Management is concerned only about rent, AND DOING AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE FOR TENENTS. Maintenance will do only do the bare minimum on repairs in order to save money for the Property Owners.Tenants have often URINATED AND DEFECATED in the swimming pool.Police are constantly called for domestic situations, vandalism, burglary's, fights, and firearms violations. You, your family's safety, and property are at risk living there. A total disgrace to the surrounding community. Ask any police officer from Susquehanna Township about the number of calls they get regarding WHISPERWOOD APARTMENTS. IF YOU ENJOY BEING TREATED LIKE DIRT AND LIVING LIKE A PIG, I WOULD GIVE WHISPERWOOD HIGH MARKS! YOU WOULD ONLY BE HARMING YOURSELF AND FAMILY RENTING FROM THEM, AND POSITIVELY REGRETING IT LATER.

                                        Much Better Management!

                                        I have been living here for 3 years now and a year ago I would have not recommended this place to anyone. What most of the other residents do not know is that this place was so bad because the property manager was a criminal herself. She let just about anyone live here without doing criminal checks or anything, she stole resident's money, she never did anything for the complex because she didn't care. Now, there is new management and new maintenance and this place is much, much better. I have noticed that with as bad as this place was before, the new management cares much more about our quality of living. The outside is prettier, maintenance always gets to issues as soon as they can, pest control comes through now and that is not even a problem anymore, management is very nice and they will do anything they can to meet resident's needs. Most of the "problem residents" are out of here now because they were all thrown out when new management had to clean up after the old management. To sum it up, these apartments are very nice and very spacey and cheap. With as much as the… See More>

                                              When I came into this apartment, I should have researched it first. For 1....too many drug dealers/drugs no one knows about <so many police cars>....for 2--maitanance men don't wait when they come in to fix something, they just knock once and walk on in like they live here, heck even one of the maiteanace men got fired for stealing from a resident... 3--they make u pay for what this apartment is not even worth... 4---to much stealing...5- bugs gallore...6--trash everywhere outside...and I would only recommend this place for someone who is trying to get on their feet and get out!!!

                                                DONT EVER MOVE HERE, ITS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. WE LIVED HERE FOR LESS THAN A YEAR AND WE HAVE HAD THE WORST PROBLEMS. THEY NEVER FIX ANYTHING. WE HAVE MOLD GROWING IN BEDROOM AND BATHROOM AND THEY DID NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THEY EXPECT YOU TO PAY WAY TO MUCH MONEY, WHEN THESE APARTMENTS ARE ONLY WORTH LIKE $2.00. THESE ARE THE GLORIFIED PROJECTS. THEY CHARGE YOU THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR SEWAGE THAT YOU WOULD PAY FOR IN A HOUSE. THERE IS NO PRIVACY, ITS LIKE THE PROPERTY MANAGER SHOULD HAVE A BED IN YOUR APARTMENT. NOTHING IS NICE ABOUT THESE APARTMENTS. THEY NEVER PLOW THE WHOLE LOT, THEY LEAVE ICE FOR DAYS AND EXPECT YOU TO PUT SALT DOWN YOURSELF SO YOU DONT FALL AND BREAK YOUR LEG. THERE IS NEVER ANY PARKING. THEY LIE ABOUT EVERYTHING. YOU WOULD BE LUCKY IF THE LANDLORD EVEN SIGNED YOUR LEASE. THE LEASE IS ONLY 2 PAGES LONG AND THEY DONT HOLD UP ON THEIR END OF THE BARGAIN AND THEY WOULDNT CARE IF YOU HAD A BIG HOLE IN THE WINDOW THEY WOULD STILL LET YOU MOVE IN AND NEVER FIX IT. DONT EXPECT NEW CARPET… See More>

                                                  Management is horrendous! Dont expect your money's worth

                                                  My first experience living on my own and it has been horrible! Management has the highest turn over rate ever and they are not courteous in the least. The maintenence is terrible and the pest control is lacking. Your dollar will get you better, look around. Trust me!
