So far Tuscan heights has been a great place to live. I have been here about 8 months and have seen a lot of what I like. The apartments are nice and have a roomy feel to them. The amenities are decent, and comparatively to other apartments in the area, it is the nicest place I found for the price. As with most places I am sure they will raise my rent significantly the next lease signing period. That will be the deciding factor with staying or not.
The community seems to be a lot of families with young children, at least in the section that I reside.
When you pull into Tuscan heights you will notice that it does not look like the rest of the surrounding community. Tuscan heights seems to take pride in their apartments and it shows. From the good painting of the interiors, to the external presentation of the apartments themselves, Tuscan is nice.
The two pools are decent size but can easily be run over with children and their families playing. The on site gym is small but has enough equipment to keep someone busy for a couple hours. there are two elliptical machines, two treadmills, one exercise ball, free weights, yoga mats, and a couple TVs playing music of your choice.
With most places, the laundry facilities on site are a little beat up from local children vandalizing and adults who over work the washers and dryers. I have seen drywall mud caked in machines from laborers, dryers that don't work, and the card system they use to purchase washing time is a hassle. I do not do my laundry here based on the maintenance of the machines and the neglect of the residents to the equipment. This is not Tuscan heights fault but rather the residents.
Parking is a difficult situation here. Everyone gets one parking pass and one guest pass. There is also a fee for replacing the guest past. At particular times of the late afternoon/evening it is difficult to park close to your own place.
The staff are fantastic here. I have never had an issue they could not resolve or work with me to make things right. Everyone is friendly and very helpful.
To have a pet there is a 250$ deposit and the rent goes up 30$ a month for the pet to reside on site.
All in all, I would like to stay here my next leasing period. As long as rent does not go up I will stay. If not I could find something around 800$ a month, it just would not be as aesthetically pleasing. Something good decorating could accomplish.
