If you do not have a parking pass, it is difficult to find a place to park, PARKING IS TERRIBLE! You have to be put on a waiting list then buy a reserved spot. At night, I've had to park near the other buildings and walk thru the parking lot and grass and piles of dog crap because no one there picks up their dog dung. The pool and "hot tub" are closed a lot, hot tub is barely warmer than the pool. The appliances are outdated and the counter tops in the kitchen chip if you drop anything on them. The roof leaked and destroyed some of my books. The bathroom had hairs all over the walls that the people who painted before I moved in just painted over, apparently. They didn't change the filter to the air conditioner for over a year and a half! When the A/C wasn't working, my husband took the disgusting filter off and cleaned it himself. They should change those regularly. It was making our electricity bills high for a long time because the a/c was constantly running and we didn't know why until way later. The toilet and hot water heater had to be replaced right after I moved in because they were broken. The mail was vandalized at least 3 times before they did anything about it (put up a gate). My mailbox was removed with a crowbar and we had to drive 10 mins to the post office to pick up our mail for about a month. I got 2 flat tires with nails/screws in them and found at least 10 that I picked up from the parking lot so no one else would run over them. The 2 stars come from the price, location, the maintenance fulfilling requests in a timely manner and friendliness of a couple of the office staff.

The negatives I had with living here: 1) I lived in their smallest model apartment and the overhead lighting in the living room area is pretty bad. You need a floor lamp to be able to have enough light. 2) Their appliances are pretty outdated. The dishwasher was from the 1980s and the oven is a deathtrap. Got my arm pinned in it after I tried to pull something out and barely bumped the door which caused it to close. Left a cool scar. I also had frequent problems with the water appliances (toilet, shower, kitchen and bathroom sinks, and dishwasher) because of San Antonio's hard water. Required a few repairs. 3) Parking after 8:00 is near impossible to find (they started doing reserved spaces which can help, but it's a $20 a month charge or something near that). 4) If you try to cook ANYTHING in the oven, the smoke detectors will go off. You need to take the batteries out in order to cook. 5) They forbid you from keeping bicycles on your patio because it's against fire code (even though you don't have to go anywhere near the patio in order to leave your apartment). Positives: 1) The bathrooms and closets are large. 2) Across the street from a park and a trail connecting two different parks runs behind it. Very beautiful. 3) The staff is helpful. 4) For the location, it's a good price (though you don't get your bang for your buck on the bottom tier apartments at $650 a month.) I'd recommend living here if you're trying to stick to a small budget and you work in northern San Antonio.

Me and my boyfriend have lived here a year and I have not had any problems with the staff which is awesome! The apt was a little too small for us BUT the neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. Parking is kinda bad but you can always park in the front of the office if need be. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

WARNING! DO NOT LIVE HERE! Worst place I have lived by far. Gross dirty bathroom, crumbling cabinets, a dishwasher that made dishes dirtier and kept falling over because they couldn't seem to keep it ancored in, lots of bugs despite having to pay them for pest control, not enough parking and an overall eeeewww factor. Worst of all management was so bad that they failed to disclose continued mailbox break ins over a 9mth period resulting in our mail being stolen without us knowing. Due to our box being broken into, $15,000 was stolen from our accounts. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!

Without a doubt the WORST place I have ever lived. Only lived there 4 months because it was just that horrid. The apartment itself is so poorly lit, no natural light, and no overhead lighting either, except for the "dining" area which was badly wired and buzzed. I could hear Blanco road as if the windows were open. The air conditioner was extremely loud and made it very difficult to sleep. There were many many occasions where I had to park across the complex due to lack of parking. They have a salt water pool, which would be fabulous if it were ever open. Management is just awful, no one there will give you the same answer, until it gets to the manager herself who will tell you something completely different than everyone else. Advice if you already live there: get everything... EVERYTHING in writing. Didn't see the unit before we moved in, and that was the first mistake. I actually cried, the bathroom is ridiculous! The grout in the tile was non-existent in some places.I could hear everything the neighbors did in the bathroom. The kitchen was probably the most offensive thing about the place... first off, and this may seem trivial to some, but there is not a drawer in the kitchen that will fit a silverware tray. I could understand this in a unit that was tiny, but this was a 2 bdrm! The dishwasher never worked, not ever. Even after it was fixed, it didn't clean. No ice maker in the freezer, no counter space, no real cabinet space either. In just 4 months time, I watched all of my neighbors move out. There were so so so many nights where I would hate going home bc it was just that bad. I think I had one guest the entire time I lived there, I never cooked, never went in the pool (it was always closed), since moving out, I have had friends family and neighbors over for dinner....that I cooked. I go in the pool all the time here as well. I would not recommend this apartment complex.
