Resident 2018 - 2019

10/15/2019

I lived at Sky View for little over a year and would have loved to stay longer if work didn't call me elsewhere. This is such a gem with surrounding low quality/pricey similar properties. My 1 bedroom unit was in great shape, new appliances and kitchen, HUGE walk in closet, large deck overlooking the back common area/trees that made it feel secluded. Gas and water was included in rent which was awesome. Never had any maintenance required because the place was in such good shape, but I saw the maintenance staff regularly and they always checked to make sure I was doing well- very friendly guys. My neighbors had lived there for 10-20+ years so I knew they had been satisfied for a long time. Lastly, the management is top notch. --- is so sharp and kind in how she runs her business. She is extremely fair and operates simply under treating people how she wants to be treated. It was so refreshing to have a property manager be so responsive, so kind and so human in dealing with their clients. I would recommend sky view to anybody, I am so glad I lived there instead of any of the… See More>

    I have been a resident of the Sky View Community for almost six years and out of all of my rental experiences; this has been the BEST hands down. Mrs. Sue the property manager has been absolutely amazing. Quite frankly I do not believe that this review could adequately give her the credit that she deserves. When I initially moved here I was coming from out of state and she was accommodating; meeting with me after the normal business hours. I was provided with a wealth of invaluable information. So, my transition here was seamless; which I attribute to Mrs. Sue's professionalism and breadth of knowledge and overall experience in apartment management. She has been the manager of this property for twenty plus years and knows her stuff. Anytime, I place a request for maintenance the issue is resolved in a timely fashion. If you are looking for a SAFE, CLEAN ROACH FREE environment you should look no further. The rent is more affordable than any place that you will find in this area. In addition, and you get more space without the outrageous cost. I hope that you take this all in consideration while conducting your… See More>

      Sky View is easily on the cheaper side, and great quality for the area. I have been here a few months, and anything I have an issue with Sue is always available. The issue is usually resolved within the day. I do not hear my neighbors, minus the person above me, but that is assumed. Free parking and access to pool for residents, laundry units in every building. Grounds are kept nice and clean, no loitering like other complexes around us.

        Beware: Paper thin walls Leaks Constant odors , if someone is smoking pot upstairs you will smell it. I complained and nothing was done... this goes the same for your neighbors trash/cooking you will smell it... Soliciting is big in that area seems that everyday I have something new on my door that I have to throw away. The mailbox is extremely small No place to put in a washer and dryer The paint in the kitchen looks greasy. Who uses a gloss coat in a kitchen ? The upstairs apartments are not level, I can't put tables or other furniture in certain areas because it will tilt (seems very unsafe) I'm just glad I'm finally able to afford to move ! ***Military find a better place to spend your BAH ! I contacted the housing office on base and let them know NOT to recommend this place for troops for more reasons I did not state above.

          I was a resident at Skyview Apartments for a little over a year. I had a great experience here; the complex was safe, the apartments are spacious, clean and affordable, and the neighbors are very friendly. Sue, the leasing manager was wonderful. She was always accommodating and understanding - for example, she would often open the office for me to pick up a package if I could not make it in before the office closed. She was also so sweet to my son, always giving him little toys and treats when we visited the office. Maintenance was always quick to fix any issues. The only negative thing I could say about my apartment is that I could hear the people above me when they walked around sometimes, but that is to be expected being that it is an older complex and I lived on the first floor. Overall this is a very quiet, family friendly place and I would absolutely live here again!

            We lived at Skyview for 3 years and we were so sad to leave! Sue was such a fantastic landlord. Whenever we had a problem with the apartment (which wasn't often) Willie was out there the same day to get it sorted for us. They were always on top of filter changes, smoke detectors, pest control etc. We never had any bugs inside the house. It was clean when we moved in and they are constantly renovating units as people move out. Our neighbors were fantastic too. We made some good friends there and if we ever get moved out to the area again we will be calling Sue first! She is fantastic to her military tenants! The grounds are well kept and there is a lifeguard on duty at all times when the pool is open! There's a small park and plenty of BBQ areas behind the buildings. We just can't say enough good things about Skyview Apartments!

              My wife and I lived in this complex for almost 3 years and really enjoyed our time here. As previous reviews have mentioned, management is extremely friendly and helpful in all situations. Whenever something broke, it was repaired immediately, sometimes within the same hour. The units are well cared for and management keeps the grounds and common areas looking flawless. Laundry rooms are locked and are plentiful. With parking passes, you always have a spot. The area around the complex is very busy, but close to almost anything you need transportation, food, or entertainment wise. After comparing this complex to others along Route 1, you'll see the difference and value. Not many places get a near perfect rating on this site - we found it through their high ratings also. Give them a call and you'll be thankful you did!

                Lived at Skyview for about a year, was very happy with the location and the friendly management. The community is great, and is very close to Ft. Belvoir, if you are military stationed there. It is also located near route 1, which will take you anywhere you need to go.

                  There's only one place where you can find an affordable 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment, friendly and helpful neighbors and an easy commute to Washington, DC and that's Skyview Apartments. The management is very helpful too. The best part is that there is a laundry room in every building with only about 11 apartments per building.

                      I enjoyed my stay at Skyview. The office and maintenance staff were always polite and personable, which made it feel very homey. The grounds were kept clean, and there was a good amount of space in the apartments. A maintenance request was always fulfilled within hours, and if not then, a day or so. Downfalls: no laundry in the apartments & I could hear the people above me. But overall, good location for a great price!

                        Sky View Apartments is a really nice community. My husband and I are leaving because of a work transfer, but we had a good experience here. Maintenance and office staff are the best points of this apartment. We did hear our neighbors above us, and route 1 is enough to drive anyone away from the complex, but overall this was a nice place to live.

                          A wonderful place to live.

                          I have owned 3 homes, but must rent now. The Resident Manager is top notch. She creates a sense of community and has lived in the community for over 30 years. She responds immediately and corrects any problems. She carries out preventive maintenance and the grounds are well kept. She is in the process of upgrading large slide glass doors and windows with very nice energy efficient doors and windows. Parking is very adequate. Nice washers and dryers are in the building. I feel safe with the neighbors to which she rents My building is in a very quiet area close to a well-kept park. The pool is well taken care of.

                            I have lived and rented apartments from coast to coast. This location has been the best. Maintenance is superb. Management is #1. Units are larger than most. Amenities are very nice and modern as well as are the appliances in the units. The building is in great repair. The grounds are well maintained. Noise is at a minimum. There is ample parking to include spaces for the physically impaired. Management is very helpful and caring. Management also understands the need for a clean safe environment and works very hard to keep it that way. I have been at that location nearly two years and have never had any issues. I highly reccomend this location.

                              Part 1 This place is terrible, the management are honestly a bunch of idiots, they have no idea what they are doing, I feel kind of bad for the guy that owns this place because he is kept in the dark about everything that they do down here, and they do EVERYTHING! There are drug deals going on, kids constantly breaking in and the whole neighborhood outside of this place is a slum/projects. That is what I have to comment about this place. Part 2 They lie to you about the cost to bring you here and sign a lease, and then they raise your rent, and don t do anything for you. They lie about the security at the building, and they don t provide it. Don't get me wrong there is security here; it is just not provided to you. There whole website is a lie. Please let me clarify for you that if you move in here and are not a hoodie/------ monger, you will not want to be here. Part 3 You will be scared to walk outside at night because of the lack of security They have security cameras but don t allow the security guards to use… See More>

                                By far Skyview Apartments is the best place to live in Alexandria. The staff here really cares about their complex. You feel a real sense of security being here. Maintenance and upkeep is top notch. TO HORRIBLE: You definetely have Skyview Apartments incorrect. Please post to the correct Apartment complex you live. Skyview has only one manager, there is no entry gates. So please remove your review. Thank you!

                                  To me, Sky View Apartments represents the safest place to live in this area, which is my #1 priority. The management, staff, and maintenance crew are the best. They are always out & about making sure this complex is up to PAR. They deserve a lot of credit for running such a clean and safe operation here.

                                    My dad and I have been living at Sky View Apartments for a little over 6 years now, and we absolutely love it here! Our neighbors are awesome, management is super friendly and caring, and the maintenance is always helpful. This is the first place we've lived where we feel like everyone looks out for each other. We have lived in a few different places in this area, and Sky View is hands down the most safe apartment complex around here. The management and maintenance staff are always keeping an eye out and making sure the area is safe and secure. I've never felt uneasy, even coming home late at night. I know there's always an eye out (or an ear!) I feel like I could count on my neighbors/management/staff for anything. This place is great! :)

                                      Have been here for 4 years; moving because I found a house. Best management, maintenance and community I have lived in in 20 years. Outstanding access to grocery store, bank, major military installations, etc. as well as mall, DC, and unintrusive proximity to 5 major roadways, (I-95, I-395, I-495, 7100, Rt. 1). Property manager loves the place and seriously cares about the people. ----------------------------- and has run the place for over 20 years; maintenance professional ----------------------------- and is incredibly responsive and knowledgeable. There are people who have lived here for 15 years and rightly so. This is the best place to live in the DC metro area and a terrific value. Perfect for military families working at Ft. Belvoir, Andrews AFB, Ft. Myer, or Coast Guard NAVCEN. This place is a gem and has my absolute and ringing endorsement. Move here. Welcome home.

The only problem I have had is the renters above me have a 2 year old that only runs and jumps all day and night .. But they moved so now it is great.. Mangement is so nice and they care about who lives here.So if you are looking for a place to call home come and see just how good it is here

                                          I finally left this complex. Insulation is poor, you can hear everything your neighboors are doing, from their TV to Sxx in the middle of the night...its terrible...INSULATION IS A PROBLEM. The management had been always cool, but problems are not resolved at all, you have to ask multiple times if you want/need something resolved in your apartment. Parking is always an issue, mainly during the weekends and if you arrive home late... Nothing happened during the time I was living there, but security is 0 and was always on the top of my mind...

                                            This is our first year here at Skyview, and already we can tell that it is a great place to live. The maintanence people are very friendly and respectful of your homes and the management is great as well. (We've had a couple of issues with our a/c and whatnot, but the problems were quickly addressed and rectified.) We are not bombarded with papers and mailings (like our last apartment did, we'd always have some sort of letters under our door) and we enjoy the community. Sometimes we can hear noise from the apartment above ours, but nothing from those living around us on the same floor, and no noise from the laundry room which is also on our floor. There are minimal bugs and absolutely no mice or rodents. They welcomed us and our cat and we don't plan on moving anytime soon!

I WOULD RECOMEND THIS APARTMENTS TO ANYBODY LOOKING FOR A CLEAN AND FRIENDLY ENVIROMENT. MANAGEMENT AND MAINTENANCE PEOPLE ARE GREAT, VERY HELPFUL.
