I have never written a review for apartments/condo's but after seeing the review that was left for the Villas I felt that I needed to share my experience and ongoing interaction with the management of the Villas.
My wife and I have lived here for approximately one year. We absolutely love the area, love the apartment have had great neighbors, and have had zero issues with the management team. During this last winter blast we had they actually had someone come and shovel off the entrances to the units, up to the front doors in the courtyards. Maybe that's normal for around here but being from the North East you pretty much have to do anything like that for yourself.
These apartments have high end appliances, hardwood floors in the main living area, and all finishes and trim is high end. A quick background is that they were built as high end condos to sell but the decision was made to rent them out instead of selling them. Should they become available for sale I would definately love to buy one. I really feel like we have been fortunate to be able to live in such a perfect location (walk to Chateau Ste Michelle, Red Hook, Columbia, etc.), have such a high end apartment with unbelievable view, and have such a reasonable rent. The value for the Villas is great.
On a closing note and in reference to a previous posting we lived next door to the tenant. For only being there for a couple of months it seems unusual that she seems to describe many seasons of problems. We have no mold, no smell, no issues with anything getting fixed, and have had only good experiences from day one. You have to weigh all feedback and try and make sense of it, and hopefully I have been able to clearly describe the experience we have had to date.
