I move into this complex almost a year ago and I absolutely love it. I was slightly skeptical to move in after reading some of the reviews but I am glad I gave the complex a shot. First off the units are beautiful and very spacious. The river running throughout the complex is very relaxing. Especially if you are near to a waterfall and the wild ducks really give a nature feel to the complex. Next the employees are absolutely friendly and always want to seem to help. Ellen is the manager and is an excellent manger by far. She is always understanding and willing to help out with anything you need! One top of all that, The maintenance team are always on top of their work orders and have always gotten my request done in a timely matter. I am still enjoying living at this complex and will highly recommend these apartments to anyone who is looking!! :)

Coming from a non-resident, I am thankful I did not have the displeasure of actually living here. However, I tried to, and that was my mistake. My first impression of the staff wasn't so great, but I decided to look past that since I was still very much infatuated with what I saw online. The complex looked just as beautiful in person as it did on their website, so I kept a positive attitude towards the whole experience, until this happened. My circumstances for renting an apartment were different at the time. I was between jobs, but had a steady income from family. Anyone who doesn't have a job and tries to rent an's pretty much a dead end. Sometimes you may get lucky, and in this case, I thought I was. The guy who was helping me said that as long as I have $1,800 in my bank account, I should be set. I was also told that in order to claim this apartment, I needed to pay a $199 refundable fee to assure the apartment will be mine while the income/moving in situation was in the works. If my income situation was approved by their management, that $199 would be put towards my move in fee. If not, I would get the entire amount refunded back to me. So, I signed my papers and they charged my card. A week or so later, the guy calls me to let me know that I need to sign a few more papers and to make sure I have $18,000 in my account in order to be approved... I exclaimed... "$18,000?! You told me $1,800!" He denied saying that and said it was always $18,000. Immediately, I told him if that's the case, I am no longer moving into the apartments and requested my $199 back. I contacted them several times only to be told that the person I needed to talk to "would be back the following Monday...or Thursday." By the time I finally got a hold of this person, she claimed she had my information "right in front of her" but had to make a few others calls first before talking to me about my situation. She never called me back. This was back in October 2014...It's been 9 months and I still have not received my $199 refundable fee. Do not move in to this place.

Started on a three-month lease then six months and now will extend another six months. Nice place to live: friendly staff, maintenance guys live on site and get to requests in a timely manner, beautiful grounds kept up weekly, safe environment, friendly neighbors.

Key points- Nice pool area but often closed or full of ducks... yes, actual ducks. Very little parking space depending on where your unit is, Friendly maintenance men HORRIBLE office staff Bugs, and ducks.... SO MANY DUCKS! My experience- When I moved into this complex, I read the reviews online and ignored the bad and thought it was just angry people ranting on the internet. Well, now I understand why they're angry. This complex has the most unprofessional management I have ever encountered. All of the reviews said exactly the same thing, "this place will scam you out of your deposit and then some" I truly wish I had listened. When we set up our move in date and signed all the paper work, we did it 3-4 months in advance, one week before our move in date, they called to tell us that the unit wouldn't be available for another two weeks because there was a lack of communication between one of the employees and the current residents. All they did was prorate the month we moved in to reflect the time we were actually living there, they did nothing to make up for the huge inconvenience. When we finally did move in, things were not cleaned appropriately and we found roaches. I did more to take care of the roaches than they did. Also, our garbage disposal sounded like a chain saw, didn't work and never got fixed, even though it was looked at twice. Over the course of our lease, maintenance requests would take weeks and the water would often be turned off for 6+ hours without any warning. The pool was often closed and the fitness center was often damp and muggy. My only positive is that when the maintenance men finally did show up they were usually very friendly and helpful. We're finally done there and 8 weeks later we're being told our account is being sent to collections in a week due to an overdue balance. We were never told about this balance, when we inquired as to why we were never told they said they sent us a letter but it got returned...I'm not sure how they thought we saw a letter that they know we never got. We were told it's our fault we didn't request a walk through and that we made no attempt to clean. Which is an absolute lie, we spent days cleaning that apartment and requested three days prior to our move out date to have a walk through but shockingly no one ever got back to us. The most frustrating part is that they really don't communicate with the residents and then charge you for it.

Worst place I have ever lived. Constant problems with AC during the summer. They fixed my AC with a rusted AC fan that randomly stops after a week of not having working AC. The maintenance are so incompetent I gave up and started fixing things myself. You are charged 4 months rent for breaking your lease early so you are basically screwed as soon as you sign. You are better off at the complex next door or one of the other surrounding places. The rent costs here are astronomical for what you are getting here and the staff make you want to cry. Everything is great... until you sign. There is so much crime here, they hired security guards to watch the premises. I actually witnessed someone breaking into someones 1st floor balcony. If you are female or have kids you would like to keep, maybe look into a second story or a safer place? The security gates are purely a waste of time. The gates are usually open otherwise people just use the exit gate as an entrance. A few people have had some auto theft. None of the front office people live at the location so they have no idea how unsafe things can get at night. When I first read the reviews for this place, I thought they seemed a bit excessive. I can now say for certain they are spot on with reality. Sorry for the bad news. I had friends that lived in the nines next door and that place was cheaper and had more square footage per dollar and a brand new workout room being built. Do not get excited over the big pool at lakeview, they never clean that thing and it gets really nasty sometimes. People have vomited in the pool while I was walking by and I'm pretty sure I saw floating remnants of that for over a month. I never swam in there again. There should never be brown chunks floating in the pool.

If I could give this place zero stars, I would. DO NOT MOVE INTO THIS PLACE! - 6 tiles in the shower fell out, exposing dry rot and black mold. They refused to fix this for 2.5 months. - Water damage in the outside storage closet ruined my belongings. They didn't care. - They lost my master key and asked to keep one of the two they gave me. - Forgot to charge me part of my move in fee. So after I had lived there for 2 MONTHS, they sent me a lovely request for $850.00 Besides the most unfriendly, horrible management I have ever experienced, this place has absolutely NO parking, trashy grounds, gross west nile breeding ponds everywhere. The gates are ALWAYS broken. Literally the worst place I have ever lived in. RUDE RUDE RUDE! Don't waste your time and money - you will regret moving here. All of the negative reviews are 100% accurate. I ignored them when I moved in here, and I wish I didn't.

THIEFS! GROSS, DO NOT LIVE HERE!! The lease gives you no rights. My husband and I moved in and found cockroaches and bed bugs the first night. (notice all the mattresses by the dumpsters). Our neighbor came to see our apt and said that we had HIS BROKEN FRIDGE, that they removed from his apartment that had cockroaches inside. We have a one year old so we couldn't live like that. After we sighed our lease we talked to a tenant to told us that the front desk receives cash incentives for having your CAR TOWED. The cops are always there. I know this sounds like a bad dream but its true It seemed like a good deal, but they took our money and then kept charging more and more. They wouldn't let us out of our lease without paying through the nose even though they never fixed any problems. I am reporting them to the BBB. On top of that they are the Rudest most heartless women I have ever met. You have to beg to get anything done. Dealing with them has been one of the worst experiences of my life. (You are better off anywhere else!)

I lived there for a year and a half, and the apartment itself is fine, but the staff is the most incompetent group of people I've ever had the displeasure of meeting. If you move here, pray nothing goes wrong, because they won't fix it, or they'll screw it up completely.
