Warm and inviting community. Home away from home. Friendly staff makes me feel part of the family and go above and beyond to assist with any needs. Amenities are always taken care of and there are activities throught the month to enjoy.

    Beul was fantastic in helping me find a unit at the Beacon. He was very polite and professional; in addition he answered any questions I had very thoroughly. The maintenance here is also top notch. My maintenance requests have been resolved within 24 hours.

      Been here for a month, I thought I was downgrading from a house to an apartment, but this feels like an upgrade. The units are beautiful and efficient, the amenities are great, the people are friendly and there is a nice sense of community here, compared to other older apartment communities. Super convenient!

        Staff is helpful and friendly. Complex is clean and nicely decorated. Have only been here for short time so haven??™t used maintenance. Over all we are happy with experience. Community seems friendly but haven??™t met many people yet as we have been busy with grand children and children.

          I spotted the apartment building while driving down Richmond Hwy and I just knew it was going to be amazing. I got a tour of a unit and I fell in love. I am very happy with my apartment and the staff is so nice and helpful. I have never in my life had such a beautiful kitchen. There is so much cabinet space in there, I don't even think I'm using all of it! The sliding bathroom doors are a very interesting way of saving space - this apartment was full of happy surprises! The apartment complex is close to everything - Walmart, target, petsmart, starbucks, a ton of restaurants, salons, etc. Plus, it's pretty close to the highway so commuting is also easy!

            I've lived here for a few years now under the old and current management. Ever since Bozzuto took over, the atmosphere has been more pleasant. The office staff seems truly genuinely concerned as soon as you walk in the door. You can feel that they really want you to be satisfied when you leave their presence. I truly appreciate their polite nature and willingness to assist me with whatever issue I may have.

              Very nice complex, in a good area/location, with great staff and amenities. Fair pricing for what you get. They keep the complex clean on a daily basis, which makes you feel special and valued. The staff does a great job in keeping everyone involved in the apartment community by hosting different events. Very home type of feel to this place and would recommend to anyone.

                    Nearly every single staff person in the front office is outstanding as far as friendliness, being respectful, professional, etc. with the exception of one, and that's all it takes to make something exciting into something extremely disappointing. If we had spoken to or interacted with this one person before moving in, we wouldn't be here, and would have chosen another apartment complex. Other than that, the place is outstanding, from the condition of the unit when we moved in, the friendliness of the residents, the positive community feel, the convenience to shopping and transportation, the amenities, etc. All it takes is one person to ruin a great experience and undermine all of the great work the rest of the staff does. What is even more disappointing is that there was no official reaching out or follow up when I brought this to the attention of the next person up. 100% of the custodial and maintenance staff are extremely friendly and courteous. This is a great place and we are enjoying it, however we ignore what happened and try to stay out of the front office. Probably won't renew because of the experience we had with this one staff person and… See More>

                      My experience here it was peaceful on my floor. The move in was easy and management was very helpful. The management team was changed out from people who knew my name to strangers but always professional. My only complainet is the parking lot, my car was hit a few time and know one came forward and the spaces are too close together. I also think it should be a smoking area I see too many smokers smoking in the parking lot.

                        Courtyard area is very noisy at times with kids screaming even with the pool closed and dogs barking. I don't believe dogs are allowed in the courtyard area. We were also advised that we were on the top floor of our building and we are not. This is disappointing because we have to deal with noise above us which is one reason why we moved from our last apartment.

                              Pretty descent apartment complex. I wish the shuttle bus ran on the weekends. Also i believe valet trash could be taken off as an amenity fee as i can take my own trash out. Only real issue is fixing the door near apartment 250. Overall no other complaints.

                                          Fun place To love great location for kids, singles, and young families. There are some nagging issues with the property but they can easily be fixed. I work in DC and the shuttle service to the metro is a plus it's and amenity that not too many buildings offer.

                                            You can hear your upstairs neighbors sometimes. The outside landscaping needs work. The apartment is nice and the device staff are great. Dont have a sense of community it could be due to the lack of diversity.

                                              We really appreciate your feedback! It's important to hear from our residents both what we do great and well as areas of improvement. As it relates to our landscaping, we are in the process of having our flower beds mulched and added bushes where some may have died back. It's nice to hear that you are happy with your apartment and our staff. I would like to invite you to attend one of our many resident events, the calendars are posted in the elevators, in hopes that you will gain that missing sense of community. We put a lot of effort into creating activities for our residents; however, we are always open to new ideas so please feel free to email or relay to us in person an activity you might enjoy. Thank you again for your review. Have a wonderful day. Warmest Regards, Donna Baldree, CAM General Manager
