Just moved in. Seems nice so far. Fab for pool doesn't work. A bit small but it does the trick. Leasing staff is nice. Very accommodating. Maintenance team is also nice. Just happy to be in South Carolina.

Most of my experience has been good. There is a lot of pet waste but otherwise the staff is helpful and most of the people are nice. The location is great, only 10 mins from downtown and secluded from main/busy roads.

It's an ok apartment complex. The rent is very expensive considering the condition of the apartments and property. Location is OK. This same apartment in a regular city would be around 650 per month, not 1400. There are a lot of new apartments availableSee More >

This community is too expensive for what is offered. Amenities are sub-par and dirty, apartments desperately need updates, and the grounds have nice trees but are not kept well. The "dog park" is just a fenced in area of dirt. The exterior of the buildingsSee More >

So far, I have enjoyed my time at the apartment. I feel like upon move in, the room could've been cleaned more though. There is a slight bug problem, but it is good to know that pest control comes routinely.
