These apartments suck big time! The biggest reason is the property manager. She is extremely rude, unprofessional, and immature. This company made the biggest mistake hiring her. Ever since she has started to run these apartments, ALL staff has quit (not fired) simply because she is that hard to get along with, therefore you never know who is coming into your home for maintenance or who has a key to your apartment. The people that she has hired on since she has been here are all her personal friends. She never takes responsibility for her own actions and is the immature type to blame any problems on anyone besides herself. NEVER expect any better from her though because she is not above this in any way. Since then the apartments have went downhill and fast. They use to have trash compactors in each section, which were always piled up with trash on the outside because tenants were too lazy to just put it inside of the compactor. Instead, she had them all removed but one and you are now FORCED to have valet trash services which you are charged extra per month for and have no other option. This was her idea. She claims it was the residence idea but I AM A RESIDENT and I was NEVER asked my opinion. She is a chronic liar, which is why I say she is so unprofessional and immature. The more reasonable way to handle that instead of punishing all tenants with this mandatory valet trash service would be to find out who was disposing their trash improperly and issuing them a fine for it. What the apartment complex needs is an adult running the show, not this kid. Basically, if you want to be disrespected and lied to, move here. The Vintage claims they are luxury apartments. There is absolutely nothing luxurious about these. All the appliances are plain jane. My apartment has carpet but the apartments that are vacant are getting vinyl put in instead of carpet. Good luck that stuff is so easy to tear holes in and cheap. Where is the luxury in vinyl? This apartment does something stupid that I have never seen any other apartments do, and that s charge you for new drip pans for your stove if the ones you have been using for your contract time are dirty. Who doesn t dirty up drip pans??? The parking in the complex sucks. Good luck finding one by your front door. The construction is never productive. They are now painting the apartments this pastel yellow, the exact same color as The Courtney Manor on the other side of Blanding Blvd. off Collins Rd. The doors are black metal and get extremely hot during the summer. My daughter burned her hand severely on the door in the middle of the day. I have been here for over a year and the gym has never had equipment that worked. Never. And it is not in their budget to put brand new equipment in there, so until they come up with the money, and believe me that will be never because they are extremely cheap, you will only be getting that old, worn out equipment repaired. Enjoy that early 90s treadmill. Lastly, the front office smells like cigarettes because the property manager is a heavy smoker. Especially if you are pregnant, I don’t recommend going inside the main office unless you want to run out gagging from the thick smell of ash tray.
