Resident 2006 - 2007 Recommended
Reviewed 02/24/2007
I have been living here for about 9 months and I have to say overall my experience has been decent. <br><br>The kitchen appliances are a bit old as well as the cabinetry, and I have some problems with the water heater. On the other hand, the apartment is very spacious - I have 1k square feet for under $750 a month. <br><br>I have three major complaints:<br>1. The apartment is so old that electrical outlets are crummy. Plugs do not stay in the socket, and the cable company informed me I could only have cable in one of the three rooms with an outlet because of the crappy wiring.<br>2. The management are very rude and inconsiderate. Often I will come in pay rent or ask for a maintenance request only to see Gracie and her other ------ underlings taking a smoking break. They then have the audacity to look irritated with me for needing one of the three of them on break to come back inside to help me. <br>3. Last month my boyfriend and I had trouble with a mouse. We never reported it to the management because we were worried they might set an inhumane trap, so instead my boyfriend spent two hours to finally catch it. I read that other people had problems with rodents - it's probably one of those things that all complexes have, but when it happens to you it can be devastating. On the other hand, when I saw a roach in my dining room and reported it to management, the pest control came and sprayed and I have not seen a single insect since (knock on wood). <br><br>If you are looking for an apartment that is close to ACC and the Arboretum shopping/food for a good price, then you will be wise to rent from Balcones Woods. But if you are looking for something more upscale then you may want to look elsewhere.
