I have lived here for the past 10 months and have not experienced many problems. I would not say that this is the best place I've ever lived but it is also not the worst. There have been almost no bugs, I have seen ONE since we moved in and the maintenance people come and do pest control regularly. The worst I've seen in terms of crime is a small amount of drug use and once someone tried to sell me food stamps. Otherwise the neighbors are generally friendly but mind their own business. There are a lot of children in the complex which doesn't bother me any but if you hate kids then this place is not for you. The apartments are also on the small side but when you are renting in Charlotte for under $500 it's hard to complain about the 600 square footage. If you need something small and are starting out this is a great place to live. 15 minutes and easy bus access to CPCC central campus, and about a 30 minute drive to UNCC. I only have three complaints. It seems like there is a new face in the office every week. The lady that helped us sign our lease was really nice but she was gone about a month later. Since then I have seen a billion new faces and they have ranged from incredibly polite to downright rude. That's not really much of a complaint though. It is easy to get used to so many new people. I suppose you might not like it if you want to get to know your office staff. Another complaint is the parking. The parking isn't terrible but it's not great either. Parking spaces are not reserved so it is first come, first serve. One tenant nearby me had a small trailer that was parked very close to my apartment. There was one parking space right in front of my door and occasionally I would come home to find someone parked there. It was always really weird to me for people to park their cars right in front of my front door. The other complaint is the only thing that really bothers me about this place. The neighbors, though generally nice, do not seem to understand the concept of volume control. Nearly every day we could hear spanish music coming into our house from the upstairs neighbors, although usually the spanish music was not vibrating loud. However the neighbors across the street and many cars that drive by will play their baselines so loud we can feel our house vibrating. It can be easy to get used to, but still somewhat annoying. I have also never had a problem with noisy neighbors waking me at night. Typically the too-loud music happens during the day time or in early evening. When the music does happen it usually happens for a long time so you kinda have to plan any reading or studying around it, or learn to read/study through the noise like I did. There is also noise that happens from the kids but it is usually not too loud. The only time the kids ever really bothered me was when I found them playing on our patio (we had a first floor apartment). In all I would recommend this place so long as you are willing to deal with kids, annoying parking, and a little bit of noise.
