Resident · 2011 - 2012
My overall rating would be satisfied. The area feels generally safe yet the pool area needs consistent lighting on at night. The lights around the walkways and pool are only on half the time, and do not seem to have a pattern related to the seasons. This is a big problem if you want to use the pool, walk to the mail boxes or use the gym. There is ample parking with good lighting. Never have I had an issue finding a spot close to my apartment. The security gates do work most of the time and are conveniently open during the day M-F. I have never felt unsafe in the parking lots, so the gates breaking down now and again doesn't seem a big deal. The apartment is beautiful, spacious, well constructed and insulated, good A/C, pool is cleaned 6 days a week in the summer. The Apartment's clubhouse is impressive. Resident can reserve it for gatherings at no charge. I would like the hours to be extended beyond 6PM weekdays and 1 to 5PM on weekends. The clubhouse has a full kitchen, free coffee and tea, newspaper, 2 large screen TVs, sounds can rarely be heard from outside. Sound from the neighbor above us really depends on the difference of people. We rarely heard noise from above from the last neighbor but our new neighbors have a lively pre-teen & Teen who haven't learned to stop stomping around yet. But it is getting better, as if they are getting good direction to change that behavior, although we have not complained yet. It is true about what they say about the water. Very bad hard water deposits. Vinegar is the secret cleaner to break it all down. And we just don't use the water out of the fridge dispensor, the lines have been corroded by the water deposits and only the water from the fridge smells like eggs. The deposits must be a Pflugerville problem.
