Everything was very simple. Very easy process that allowed me to make a decision that would be a better fit for my family. Thank you 226 Oceana for understanding the needs and wants. I got what I wanted.

Apartment was very nasty when we moved in. It smelled like dog urine and there was dog hair everywhere! Things weren't fixed before we moved in. The staff is very nice though and neighbors are friendly.

My experience is a so-so one, I've had my fair share of issues with people and with some staff but it hasn't been so bad. Staff does need to keep their promises that they make though. That's one thing I don't like.

Great place to live. Amazing management and the maintenance workers are great. Rent is fairly priced considering you are walking distance from the ocean front, there is ample parking and they accept pit bulls which is what sealed the deal with me signing my lease!

Thank you for your feedback. Your comments will be shared with the team. I tried researching this situation as I cannot recall the events you've described in your review. I can say that all final move out charges are heavily documented with notes, pictures, and invoices. I can assure you that we would not have charged someone for a leak repair, however I would like your husband to contact us to discuss this matter in detail. We can be reached at 757-422-2787.
