    They had a great staff who welcomed us in a great manner, went above and beyond to make sure what we needed to move in. Once again Beth did her thing and honestly so far in life the best leasing agent I've had.

      These are great apartments for what you pay. My husband and I are actually moving states soon and I've yet to find a new apartment that compares to this one. The master bedroom is very spacious, enough room for a queen bed, dresser, night stands, and a makeup vanity, with plenty of room left. The layout of our specific unit is great. The location is great too. A 5 dollar Uber ride to towncenter, Walmart is very close, 7/11 is very close, and right it's right in between NAS Oceana and Naval Station Norfolk if you're military. I love these apartments. The ladies in the office are always super nice and helpful, too. I've recommended this complex to a coworker who actually ended up moving in. This is a good place to live. One downside is the occasional bug. But I grew up in the country and know that no matter what you do, bugs will get into anything, so it doesn't bother me. The neighborhood is always well kept. They landscape every week. They mow grass, clear the streets of fallen leaves, branches, etc. Another perk is that there is a dumpster for every building, so there's no hassle… See More>

        So far I like it everyone is great. Very well kept, the staff is professional. People living here are nice. Not from from major highway, Shopping, town center, Ocean. The area is growing and I really like that.

          First off the office staff sucks to the most extreme, I've had run ins with Christina, words can't describe her, except she is a convulsive liar, and I think her name is Beth, she is just as bad, no personality what so ever, very dull and tries to say what you wanna here, even if she knows what's she is talking about, then she tells us about utilities, we'll thats a joke, I'm not paying for gas and water, just to know I share it with 8 Apartments, I'm so glad I moved out, they tell you about an upgraded apartment, all they did is put paint on a pig, just ask them about the dented out to dated bi fold door that look crazy and they rotted base board, oh and let's not forget the crazy washer and dryer, that's dated and doesn't match. Over all people do your home work with this property. On a side note, I've seen Maintenance come and go, for years, and half the time things aren't fix right.

            Good experience , maintenance is prompt when you need them to do a job. I would recommend friends to move into this community. The stores, schools and jobs are very accessible. This community is in a great location.

              Would be nice if they were concerned with our stay really, but you're just concerned with filling the complex. I see there's a new Maintenance staff, but it's know different from the last guy. Your maintenance man needs to learn some Manors.

                  I've lived here before, it's a great location to be in the center of everything. The only downside is the parking, which you have to pay for. Every unit should have one assigned space. I wish the bathrooms were up to date.

                      Rather not. I feel for the time that I've spent here was good only because it is near the epicenter of Virginia Beach. You can basically reach anywhere from here. Other than that I know of at least 2 other Apartment complexes that are more decent as far as maintenance of property and apartment s..I'm guessing because they have more staff available to accommodate the people living there. I'm just glad it hasn't snowed as of yet, if it does God help us because last year was a disaster.

                        Great staff and maintenance! Just wish they would fix the dog park that floods. I have enjoyed my stay at woodshire other than a few minor issues which are typical with apartments. Also seems like new management is doing this place some good!

                            Living here has been overall a great experience. Maintenance requests are handled in a timely manner and the office staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Neighbors can be rude and sometimes loud, but I have not had any significant problems since living here.

                              The air conditioning has broken three times. Our balcony is incredibly wobbly and its scary to have more than one person out there at a time. There is no parking by the one and two bedrooms. Half of the gym equipment is broken and faulty

                                I've lived here for a little over a year and a half and currently still a resident but will be leaving soon due to work. But I've lived in multiple other apartments in the area and Woodshire is definitely the best! Overall it is a great place for the price. The front office is super friendly, never once have we ever had any problems with them. The area is pretty safe too, I've never felt not-safe since living here. The ONLY downside is the walls are kind of thin, so if your neighbors are talking loud, a baby crys, or if a couple is playing "hanky panky"... you may hear them/someone will hear you. But I don't blame the complex itself for that. It is what it is. I don't think that should deter anyone but that's literally the only downside I can think of. We've never had to call maintenance for anything but they do routine checks on the A/C BUT they will always leave you a notice before anyone enters your unit. Never had any problems with stolen items. My neighbors always kept to themselves which is fine with me, never had any problems with any residents. Overall… See More>

                                    They fail to communicate with you. The maintenence team let's themselves in as they please with out any notification to the tenant. Each tenant is charged different amounts depending on the urgency to find a home. None of the issues on the move in evaluation sheet will be addressed. i livec with no aitconditioning for two weeks after i moved in. I feel very uncomfortable and unsafe at woodside apartments. Also the dog park is run down. This apartment is one of the worst mistakes I've made.

                                      I am truly sorry for my late response to your review and I am sorry you have not had the best experience here at Woodshire. Our maintenance team follows entry notes in resident accounts, if yours have not been followed please let the office know so we can address this and ensure your account is up to date. We do have different pricing for apartment homes based off several different factors but we always try to provide the best price. I am sorry your AC and our dog park was not at 100% and I would love to improve these items and I am sure your feed back could help. Please contact the office so I can try and correct these concerns and make the rest of your stay with us a positive one.

THE UNITS SHARE HOT WATER WHICH LEAVES ME WITH A COLD SHOWER MANY A MORNING PLUMBING / SEWAGE BACKUPS I SHARE THE MOANS OF MY NEIGHBORS HAVING SEX I cannot wait until my lease is over. The office staff was so nice when you are signing the lease but if you start making complaints, they are quick to lie, ignore you, and pretend it's not an issue. Oh and bugs. There are 'waterbugs' aka roaches everywhere! They make sure to greet you before you walk to your door and surprise they will even greet you This apartment complex like so many in the Virginia Beach area are old / out dated, poor quality and design, poorly maintained ( walls, base boards, heating and cooling systems and well as the ducts and vents), the plumbing is not up to today's CODE standards

                                                My stay here has been good thus far. It started out rocky due to not being able to move in until 2 days into my lease. However, I was happy with the compensation I received by having a reduction in rent per month. Getting my washing machine fixed took a little longer than I preferred especially when it comes to dirty clothes piling up but other than that, the maintenance done with my bathroom I was pleased with in regards to timing and effectiveness.

                                                  I apologize for the rocky start, I am glad we were able to get it corrected and get things on a better note for you ! I am glad everything since then has been working out great for you. We are thankful you gave us the opportunity to correct our mistake and keep you as part of the Woodshire family !

                                                  Overall, it has been a good experience. However, the apartments are older and need updates that they are not willing to complete unless you move out of the apartment. This cannot continue and we will be moving out when our lease is up next year because of this and how they continue to charge more for rent

                                                    Thank you for your review, we are older apartments and I too wish we could do some updates while the apartments were occupied but as of now we don't have that option. We are able to transfer our current residents to our new renovations , would this be an option for you? If so please contact the office, we would love to show you.

                                                    A: Water and Sewage are not included in the rent, they are billed separate but still paid to the office with your rent. At this time we do not accept section 8 vouchers.
