    -------- makes living here impossible

    My wife and I lived here three and a half years. The first year was great. They had kayaks you could take on the lake, they stocked the lake with fish, they mowed the grass on the trail, the pool was beautiful, apartments were clean and well kept. That all changed when American landmark took over management from Cortland. Literally everything became disgusting. The lake smells now and looks like a cesspool. Forget about getting anything accomplished at the office. -------- (the person you will likely encounter) is rude, unprofessional, aggressive, incompetent and lazy. She tried to assert that we owed 3 more months of rent at move out when my actual signed lease said the lease term ended 3 months prior. She will not admit she’s wrong and instead will --------------- of her own arrogance. Turns out she wasn’t even looking at the actual lease only a digital account history which did prove to be incorrect (obviously bc my lease is the only thing that matters). If you need anything you’re going to have to request to talk to ----- who is nice and respectful though very busy so often it is difficult to not go through -------- first… See More>

      Apartment

      Please for the love of GOD do not move here I think these reviews are fake, coming from a former resident I stayed there for a year and I’m glad my lease is up these apartments are not luxury and they are outdated the appliances are old and these apartments are noisy! If you don’t mind the noise by all means move there but they are noisy and don’t care if you complain about it you hear every door slam in your building especially if you stay on the 3rd floor you can hear your neighbors below you YES BELOW YOU! the halls are alway dirty, maintenance doesn’t do their job they have flying roaches and a lot of unidentified insects and bugs there’s no grass in the complex so the animals use it on the rocks they have in replace of the grass it always smells like urine and poop! If you don’t believe believe me go see for yourself!

        Great apartment. Professional staff

        Great apartment. Ms Latonya Dorsey is very kind, genuine and professional. She gave me the feeling that I was joining a family, not just leasing on their property. I have a friend who has lived on the property for years and confirms this to be true.

          Sweet home

          This is a nice warming community. I was welcome by the beautiful Mrs, Latanya who goes out of her way to make you feel absolutely comfortable and at home. Her amazing warm spirit is breath taking, Neighbor’s I have meet here are very kind and polite. The manager Mrs, Tammy whom I met later is also heartening and a very understanding person to talk to about any situation at hand. I am so glad to have found a family friendly community to live in. Thank you lakefront Villa.

            We moved in June 2021 and so far are very happy here. The management and office staff are friendly and so helpful. Communication is great as the staff always ensure to notify residents of any scheduled or unscheduled maintenance that could create any inconveniences. Maintenance is great and always quick to respond to any issues we’ve had within the units. The complex is clean and well kept. The 5 day a week door-side trash pick up is probably one of my favorite things…not having to lug trash to the dumpster daily is so nice. Haven’t had a chance to check out the pool yet although my kids keep begging to go…hopefully soon. :) Overall, we love it here and feel at home.

                Was newport on the lake Request for Release From Lease Due to Unbearable Apartment Reoccurring Nuisance -------- ------ to , Info May 18, 2016Details Dear Apartment Manager, I have not occupied my apartment for a month to date, but unfortunately, have experienced several issues and had to put in numerous service requests for reoccurring issues that make the apartment uninhabitable-from my stance. Firstly, upon my arrival my toilet did not flush. Maintenance responded to the request to fix it and attempted to do so. The very next morning my toilet was still not able to flush. Next, mosquitos terrorized me both inside and outside my apartment. I sustained so many bites that I had to seek medical assistance and then I had to pay out of pocket for items to alleviate the mosquitos. Afterwards, one morning, I was late for work, because I was unable to shower, because I had no hot water. You would think the above mentioned would be enough for any rental tenant to endure. But it is just the beginning. I have come to live with the numerous reptile lizards, worms, mosquitos, flies and other bugs lingering at my door on the outside, but now they… See More>

                  Parking is horrible. If you arrive home after a certain hour of the night visitors use up the parking and the tenants have no place to park. We need visitor parking. This issue makes me want to move out.

                    Its a nice property however I have concerns for my personal safety within this community due to the lack of security & security features. There is no elevators for 3rd floor units which makes carrying large items or groceries very difficult. Parking is a hit or miss usually.

                        I was threatened with eviction within the first 30 days of being here for my TV being too loud allegedly. My neighbors however make wayyyyy more noise than me as I am rarely every home. The management asks me questions about the company I keep it visitors I may have. It feels kind of like prison being here rather than a home. I want outta here ASAP and Ill never recommend anyone live here. Especially people of color.

                                    The initial 30 days was a little bit of a hassle, but the front office was very helpful in resolving my uncomfortable situation. It has been a good experience since, less noise. The lawn area adds a nice touch to the building but needs a little upkeep. I'm enjoying my stay. Word of advice, make sure to do a walk through before moving in. The floor plan is a little bit different than the print out.

The leasing staff took care of all of our needs and made sure we were able to lease the apartment we love. Everyone went above and beyond for us. The complex is pet friendly and conveniently located next to a park for her to run. The kitchen has plenty of cabinet space and we love the full size washer/dryer in unit. I like that the gym is open 24/7 and the pool/ spa are nice amenities. I can always find a parking spot close to my apartment.

                                              Great place to live. Highly recommended. Management are attentive to property, answer questions quickly. Friendly to residents. Common areas are very clean. Amenities are nice. My unit is one that has a private garage, and that makes the apartment-living experience superior to just about anywhere I've lived before.
