Resident 2015 - 2016

4/1/2016

I was looking for a few months for something affordable and close to work. Dany was wonderful and kindly showed me an apartment after a brief conversation via email and I was able to sign that week. The neighborhood is across the street from an elementary school, which made me feel safe, and near shopping, gas stations and grocery stores. The staff that works on maintenance are very nice and have made it a point to make sure to check up on the work that they do. I wish the gym was a little bit bigger but it gets the job done with a small variety of machines. The residents I have come across are nice. They wave Hello in the morning, help each other shovel when it snows and their kids are friendly. I don't mind hearing my neighbors' music from time-to-time when they're having guests over on the weekends- outside of that, I don't hear them. It's close to 295, 395 and the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. We're only 30 minutes away from DC and about 15 or 20 from Reagan Airport. I travel a lot, so it's nice to have a safe place to leave my car over a few… See More>

    When I lived here I loved it. Maintenance was fast and I think I only called them twice in a year. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I worked with Jewels. She's awesome. The apartments are nice with reasonable rent. They don't charge for every little thing. Parking is great and I really miss living here. I only left because of my circumstances, not because of the apartment. I'm about to move back here! I don't like my current apartment at all.

      I read reviews on everything so I'm long winded when I give one : I've been here almost 3 months and so far so good! Friendly people, while shoveling after that blizzard, all I saw were neighbors helping each other out. Oh! I got stuck on a little pile of snow/ice, 3 random guys pushed us out :) ... forever greatful as we were in somewhat of a hurry to say our goodbyes to my grandmother as her cancer battle was unfortunately ending. There are manyyyyyy units here and they keep these buildings clean. Super plus for me because I hate hate hate bugs and I've seen only one. It was a water bug of some sort down on the laundry room. Cool, stay there with the water lol. Laundry room is updated HE, 3 washers and 3 dryers; no coins, laundry card releasable with cash Or card. ( my last building only had one option) so I find it nice :) Noise doesn't bother me (single mom of a 5 & 6 year old). I put a 3 because it's in the middle depending on the person. In the morning I… See More>

        Renters, beware. I liked Meadow Woods enough to not find a new place when my lease was up. But that may have been a mistake on my part. First the good: Jewela and Dreama in the front office were very helpful when I first moved. And every time I entered the office, they were courteous. The place is very child-friendly. There is a pool that was occupied all summer, lots of ice cream trucks and paleteros from March to November. There's an elementary school across the street. You can reach several bus lines within 5 minutes from midst of the property, and they'll get you to Ft Belvoir or the Metro. The apartment complex is ideally situated if you don't want to live in the actual city and it was fewer than 10 miles from a hospital, several stores, restaurants, etc. There were roaches when I first moved in. They were responsive and sent Owl Nest (I think) exterminator, who took care of the problem- once they were gone, I never saw them again, but it did take several months. Someone moved out and it helped. There are very nice maintenance men on duty 24 hours. They were all helpful. One of them had a… See More>

          The staff at the leasing office were very nice. Eveything seemed great. The apartment I got was full of issues from the beginning. Things that i noticed days after being there. Then for the my entire stay there(about a year) we suffered through a leak in the 2nd brm. It was fixed twice after having to call repeatedly. I had to place 2 trashcans so the water would leak into. When i decide to vacate the apartment and spend the last week cleaning it, i get an account summary with crazy charges, 150 for counter scratches... i wasnt big about cooking at home to cause damages like that. 170 for carpet replacement. Old used carpet. Everything was normal wear and tear. They kept my 500 security deposit plus charged me and additional $200+ . Residents side of the office staff was very poor in trying to help At all.

            The apartments are nice, especially for the price. The apartment complex is centrally located...there is food shopping and entertainment in either direction that you travel, just pick which direction suits your taste better. What sets this place above the rest is the courteous and professional staff. The ladies in the leasing office are excellent. They have been flexible, helpful and even innovative. All of my concerns have been addressed and/or corrected. When you call as a prospective renter ask for Michelle, she is by far the most helpful, smart and professionally savy person I have ever dealt with. If she can't get it done for you...it can't be done.

              homeless sleeping in premises, notified office staff to no avail. spent days without heat in winter. they used to have an emergency number which is no longer in service. i am definitely moving out at the end of my lease. please, please think twice before you move. Mount vernon apts is definitely a better choice. they are just down the block off route 1 mainly for security reasons. if you are a guy your wife won't have to come home and smell a homeless and then see somebody sleeping underneath the staircase of your apt. well that happened to my wife, not only once but twice in 6 months.

                I have lived at Meadow Woods for exactly two years this month, and the cons to living here definitely outweigh the pros. Two days before our move-in date, we received a call that our apartment would not be ready. We were already packed and had booked a moving truck, so NOT moving wasn't an option. The office manager offered to let us move into a completely different apartment in another area of the neighborhood. Admittedly, we are probably happier where we are now than the original location. Nonetheless, two days prior to our move-in was beyond ridiculous. Over the past two years we've had to place many maintenance calls, including our locks suddenly not working (they're electronic) and our toilet leaking, and more than a few of these orders never got put through to the maintenance staff (office staff is hit or miss as far as reliability). This results in many calls about the same problem, a huge inconvenience. The conditions of the apartments are also hit or miss. Our floors creak terribly, so bad, that they creak when our 8-lb. cat crosses the floor. Not just part of the floor, but ALL of… See More>

                  For the price and location, Meadow Woods is great. The apartments are not perfect but the ones I looked at were clean with an updated kitchen. Jewels was very professional, kind, and courteous. I did not have the same experience when looking at other apartment complexes.

                    All the ladies that work at the Meadow woods apartment leasing office are excellent. They answered all my questions got my toilet fixed in my apartment and took care of so off my concerns. The were not just trying to make a sale. I wood definetly recommend this apartment complex to any one looking to rent. They are definately worth taking a look at. Every time I have need help the have taken care of me.

                      I have been a resident at Meadow Woods apartments for two years now and I am very pleased at how well my apartment has kept up. All of my appliances work just as well as they did when I first moved in and I have never experienced any bug related issues. All of the A/C and heater systems from my building were replaces last month with Brand-new ones which is AWESOME! The laundry rooms are always kept very cleaned as well as the stairwells. The staff here are very friendly from the office staff to the maintenance guys and the cleaning ladies, they are all very helpful and do their jobs very well. It's a great location to live in. The elementary school is right across the street and there are two playgrounds, that's without even mentioning the fact that my family is in walking distance from Huntley Meadows Park. There is also a shopping center and a 711 within walking distance which has always been very convenient! I would recommend Meadow Woods to anyone.

                          I've been living here about 6 months and have not had any complaints accept for the people upstairs which sound like they re stomping in their apartment. The Staff is friendly and helpful especially Jewels and Michelle. Parking is not bad either we almost always have parking close by our apartment. The area is very convenient because there is a lot close by and my commute to work is only 15 minutes. I m happy that they are pet friendly for small dogs and I can have my little one living with me. :)

I've always lived in the Richmond Highway area and so far these are the best apartments I've lived in. Bus and metro are minutes away which is great because I don't drive to work. I see cleaning ladies cleaning the grounds everyday and even on the weekends I see a guy cleaning. By the way great job on that! The maintenance people are friendly especially Amadeo seems to be a good guy. When I have a problem at my apartment they don't take more then 2 days to come check it out unless its an emergency they're there ASAP which is very good. I want to thank Michelle for helping me move in within less then 30 days really needed to move ASAP, awesome job! Ms. Dreama is such a sweetheart she's ALWAYS happy, friendly and positive great person to have working there :) Some people here have wrote about loud noise and crime and honestly I've come to see every where you go your always going to find people like that.

                                    Meadow woods isn't the best place in Alexandria, HOWEVER, with the convenience to the shopping center and to the elementary school and with the great price, I believe meadow woods is worth moving in, especially if you have kids. I have been living in Meadow woods for about 1.5 years with my family. I have two kids who attend Hybla valley elementary school across street from the apartment complex. Personally, I have never had any problems living here. Front desk staff and maintenance guys are very friendly and helpful, they respond to inquiries right away. I would greatly recommend meadow woods, as I already recommended some friends who already moved in and are satisfied.

                                      Meadow Woods has been a great place for an first time apartment renter. I have had help making the right decision from the beginning. In particular Juels helped me pick the right apartment for me and my situation, her customer service was extraordinary, and I felt she had my best interest at heart. I do not regret my decision to move to Meadow Woods and I would encourage other to move in as well.

I found myself in a short notice move and from my first contact until today the staff has always been extremely professional. In fact, Michelle went out of her way to help expedite my application and ensure the apartment was ready on time. The apartments are conveniently located with access to the Washington Metro area as well as the 495 beltway, local shopping, schools and parks. Additionally, the apartments and grounds are well maintained with prompt service when maintenance is required. When I compared other apartments in the area for the location, cost and quality, Meadow Woods was definitely the best deal in the area. I have been very pleased with my decision and I am happy to recommend Meadow Woods.

The closests are spacious, i have lots of clothes and shoes and they fit comfortably with space.

                                            I moved into Meadow Woods approximately 6 months ago and have no complaints. The staff has always been very helpful at answering my questions and addressing any concerns since day one. I had the privilege of working with jewel when I first started looking at the community when I was living in New Jersey and all the information given was right on. She assisted me and was able to send me pictures, answer questions, and hold an apartment for me prior to my move and made it an easy transition. Ive had no issues dealing with crime, maintenance, parking, next door neighbors, nor with staff. I would recommend this community to anyone wanting to move to Alexandria. The most appealing thing for me about the area was the close proximity to the DC area and Old Alexandria. Additionally, public transportation is easily accessible and there's a park right down the road for folks interested in connecting with Mother Nature.

                                              I recently moved into Meadow Woods Apartments and the experience has been wonderful. Instead of being hurriedly rushed, Michelle made sure to answer all of my questions and explain the information thoroughly. Michelle also expedited my transition, and did so with professionalism and courtesy. The apartment I moved into is clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is safe and convenient. The fitness center although "modest" is well-kept and adequate. In an area where housing costs are high, Meadow Woods offers an affordable solution to other higher priced options.

                                                I moved in February 2012 with a roommate. Initially we were very impressed with the size of the apartment and the renovations. The staff has been wonderful since the start and continue to be so. Very great location for restarants and makes for a great commute to work and night life. Very little issues with bugs and the cleaning staff is always out.

I feel very comfortable as a resident here and the staff here is dynamite they actually feel like neighbors. I moved in April of this year and I love my apartment! I also like that they do different things for the residents on the Holidays like for Halloween they had candy bags for all the trick or treater's and now they are running a contest for the best balcony with Christmas decoration.

                                                    A: The apartments each have their own submeter, it truly depends on usage, but the average monthly utility bill ranges between $30.00 and $80.00. I hope that helps.
