We moved into this apartment complex nearly two years ago. The surrounding area is beautiful, the people are friendly. And the prices werent that bad...but now that I've been here a while, I can see the move was a bad one.
The apartment is cockroach infested. When we first moved in, we made a list of things that needed fixing...it took them nearly a year, and several complaints, before they ever came to fix any of it. The maintenance people are idiots. They have to come back two or three times before they can fix something properly.
The paint they used in this place sucks, it peels, leaving big ugly splotches on the walls, and they didnt even paint the entire apartment before we moved in.
You cant use the jacuzzi, because kids (and adults) fill it up with bubble bath. Can rarely use the pool itself because the older kids and adults are not careful about the smaller children and they get very rough with their poolside activities. Not to mention the drunk adults that always hang out around the pool, etc.
Plus, there is a known registered child molester in the complex...this was brought to managements attention, and they did nothing at all.
There is a so called "dog run" at these apartments, which is small, it is poorly maintained (when its maintained at all). A tenant, that is tired of all the other dogs messing in there and the owners that dont clean up after their dogs, goes in there like once a week to clean it, because it is so nasty. And it is just as bad a few hours later. THe management will do nothing about it, saying its not their responsibility to maintain it.
Drug use and public drinking run rampant in the dog run area. On more than one occasion, when we took our dog down to the dog run late at night, we would find glass drug vials, etc lying in the dog run, bottles and cans everywhere, etc.
Its hard to get the police to do anything because the management wont do anything about it. And this is such a small town, we dont have our own police or fire departments...we share another cities departments, so it takes longer for them to get here when they are called.
There is no onsite managment. Complaints are filed and pretty much ignored.
And with all these problems...they still think its ok to raise the rent every 6 months.
So all in all, not a very nice place to live.
