Kevin has been an absolute blessing during my search for a new home. he was patient, kind and efficient. Recommend to all and love my new apartment. I chose a den which allows me to have office space in addition to an already large apartment.

      Highly recommended

      I have lived here for years. Management is attentive to maintenance concerns, keeps grounds in good appearance and keeps tenants updated with expected improvements. Large windows and balcony space which is hard to find in this area. Within walking distance to various shopping needs, post… See More>

            I've been living in Lafayette since I was pretty much a baby, and I can tell you this place is a total wreck. Noise: excessively loud. Nearly everyday there's always someone blasting music outside their house or car. Not only that, but there's also occasions… See More>

              Pure trash. There are multiple families living in a lot of the apartments. Some of the tenants are crazy, dirty, and loud. There are mice, raccoons, and bedbug problems throughout the property. Not to mention the burglaries and homeless people living under the stairs or… See More>
