Loved it here, Donnie the site manager was exceptionally good to us, always took care of any issues we had personally. The staff always remembered who we were and the never made us feel like we were bothering them, even if we had the smallest issue.
The lead maintenance rep was always very friendly and would walk across the parking lot out of his way to say hello and check on things. He even helped me get into my garage one night on his off hours when i accidentally locked my opener inside and hadn't yet set up a garage code.
The amenities were pretty dang good, especially when you compare the surrounding apartments. Pool and surrounding area was always clean, the natural gas BBQ pits always clean, the pond area was very relaxing, and the club house was always clean and working. We were lucky and had a 3rd story corner unit, but I don't believe we once ever heard the neighbors. For a while we thought we had none. My biggest thing it was usually quiet. There may have been some noise during the summer, for instance a few military guys got spun up, but I got to know them and they were always friendly and waved.
The price, sure it is up there a bit. But when you compare what you have right at your fingertips, for instance Henderson Beach (free) is 2 mins away, Walmart, 1 min away, the Destin Commons, not even 5 mins away and so on its really hard to complain. We had a 2 bedroom, and garage for 1475 for 2 years, no changes to our price. You can always find cheaper possibly, but in my eyes you'll get what you pay for.
One thing I think i liked best about that spot was after a night of partying in town we would cab it home then continue on to the beach across the street. It was almost like your own private beach.
I saw someone put a negative review at one star for it being behind the Walmart haha!!! I mean seriously?!?!? It was there when you moved in bud! I mean no matter what apartment area gated or not people can walk right in. They also complained about the fee's for pets and trash... again it's in the contract you signed and agreed to before moving in. How can you rate a place 1 star for those things? Sometimes I don't get how people are so quick to complain. Walmart was there long before the apartments showed up, and it was extremely convenient in my eyes.
Just my two cents. We would still be there had we not moved to Texas.
