It's a good place to live, and I'm really impressed by the responsiveness

Horrible. BED BUGS. 10/23/2013

I've had problems since the day I moved in, the carpets weren't cleaned like they were supposed to and had stains on them. I also have had small cockroaches everywhere since they day I've moved in and kill one every few days. I also just found out last night that I now have bed bugs on top of it. Apparently bed bugs is a very common thing here at Sun Prairie and its ridiculous. Even though the rent is a bit cheaper then the other complexes around, I wouldn't recommend it because that's what it is, cheap. I'm not a person to write a review but I couldn't help myself because I wanted to warn people about my experience here. more

They are great 7/19/2011

Tiffany (my original leasing agent) and Shannon have been wonderful in the office -- very understanding, etc. My advice to anyone renting is to keep their leasing agent's e-mail on file. They're a great contact if you have any additional questions. more

Like the managers :) 7/6/2011

I have no qualms with management. I submitted a request to be considered as a building with small animals and my letter was forwarded onto upper management. I received a response within a few days. While the response wasn't what I had hoped for, I was impressed at their attentiveness. They offered to let us move to a complex that allowed small animals for a fee -- something they didn't need to do. So, that was very kind of them. more

My bad! 6/30/2011

Bathroom exhaust fan was constantly running. This was our mistake! We did not realize that there is a manual control OUTSIDE the bathroom that can turn on depending on the heat setting. You can shut it off and the fan will function properly. the lady from maintenance called me within an hour of submitting my online form and was very friendly at explaining our mistake. Very common mistake, apparently! more

Can't wait to move back 6/22/2011

I lived there for 2 years and the people were nice and the apartments were well kept and spacious. I moving back in a few months. more

homey 6/14/2011

I live in a 1 bedroom, moderate income housing, layout 1 A modified unit. I have lived in Sun Prairie for a month with my boyfriend and, quite honestly, am surprised by the reviews here. Prior to leasing, I read all of the 70-some reviews on this site and was a bit wary. However, I've felt that the apartment complex itself is wonderful and the staff is very attentive. :) I like that they've tried to make it "homey" with the lake and the walking paths. I've walked as late as 9pm at night around the paths and haven't had any problems... aside from the occasional goose! more

Wonderful staff 6/10/2011

Comfortable at all times 5/25/2011

We have lived at Sun Prairie for 1-1/2 years. The office people were great to work with and did a great job helping us find the layout and price that would work best for our family. During the entire time we have lived here every time we have had any need for maintenance it was not unusual for someone to come and take care of things the same day and definitely by the next day. It is a quiet, peaceful place to live. We found our apartment to be clean when we moved in and communication from the office to the residents about updates etc. has been excellent. There are lots of little things that you don't think about which add to the comfortable feel of the place. One of them that surprised me was how wide the parking spaces are. It allows even a larger size car space so you can get your groceries in and out without being concerned about bumping the next car. I could go on and on. more

Best Apartments! 5/11/2011

These apartments are some of the best apartments I have lived in. I will stay here till i decide to get a house. more

I would highly recommend this complex 5/11/2011

I have lived at Sun Prairie a couple of different times and this is going on my 4th year living here. They are prompt with repairs and very responsive to any other needs you might have. The location is great it is close to anything you could need. The landscaping is well taken care of and they do good job removing snow in the winter. I would highly recommend this complex to anyone interested in looking for a place to live. I have told several people I know that this is a great place to live. I like the smoke free environment too. more

Well Kept 4/7/2011

I moved into Sun Prairie in February. I had very few problems getting into the apartment. (I had expected needing an extra deposit or co-signer.) My building is one of the original buildings built and the unit itself is well kept. There are no nail holes or damages to appliances. The carpets and linolium was spot free when I moved in. Because I read my lease I was aware that I had to have my carpets cleaned before I could move out. The hallways are clear and cleaned regularly. Trash is removed promptly and then garage units where the trash is collected is fairly well kept. The lawns are well kept and the maintenace workers come promptly to repair things (like dripping faucet, and put my sliding door back on track). more

Amazing! 4/5/2011

I've lived at Sun Prairie since March, and I like it a lot. For a complex of its size, Sun Prairie does an excellent job maintaining the grounds and apartments. Contrary to many reviews on this site, everyone I've encountered at the office has been very friendly and helpful. It's amazing what people will write after they've been evicted. more
