For a college residency, Dakota Ranch is very quiet. It's a short 5-10 minute drive to campus and the bus is always quick to get here. I've been here for a year and a half, and it's always been very homey. The staff is wonderful!

Loved the amenities and outdoor areas at Dakota Ranch, and the residents seem respectful. Our tour was great and our leasing agent knew the answer to all of our questions. I'm pretty confident I will be signing here!

Being pet friendly was big for me! Apartments are scenic and I love living out here as there aren't a lot of parties to keep me up. Good amenities and super friendly office staff! Properties are pretty clean as well.

I love living at Dakota Ranch! By far one of the most scenic and beautifully made apartment complexes. It truly makes you feel at home. The staff is so generous and nice and I love how involved with the residents they are.

Good apartment complex. Safe, okay amenities, quiet, and nice to simply be around and enjoy the serenity and beauty of the Hill Country. Only bad thing is that rent is high and apartments are kind of small.
