So let me tell you a little about Sweetwater Cove. I've lived here for almost 5 years and this place continually goes downhill every year. I've seen the management and employees change more times than I can count. This place is a dump. I pay almost $900 a month for a 1 bedroom apartment. My ac breaks at least once a month. When you're in FL you know what hell that is being without it and you're home is 95 degrees inside. Apparently Q that works here thinks that the "fair housing act" is a good enough reason to ignore suffering and force someone to stay in their apartment in those conditions. She also will talk over you and down to you like you're garbage. The code enforcement is a joke, bugs are everywhere, and the maintenance people will come in any time they please even if you don't answer the door and are in a towel naked. Honestly this is the worst I've ever been treated and now they're raising the already high rent by $45. They need to be held accountable. Do not move here.

I lived here for 4 years. When we first moved it we really like it there. The last year or two have been the worst and its one of the reasons we moved. The Parking is a nightmare. The Bugs are horrible. One day when it was raining we ended up having 15 mole crickets in our apartment because they were coming in from under the door. We also had issues with our carpets getting wet. We told the office about it they had maintenance come in and look they could not figure out what was going on. it was to the point we had mold on the carpets. We were told a mold guy would come in look at everything. Then they would change the carpets out, That never happen. We still had mold. When we moved we found a huge mold spot under the bed. We were charged for them to clean the carpets. they took it out of our deposit. We were told the Carpets will be changed because they were not when we moved in and hello they have Mold on them..... They were not changed so who ever is staying in that apartment will have moldy carpets. This place really fell apart when the new management moved in.

I lived there for a year ....at first not too bad. They responded to service requests in a timely manner but then it turned into them always dismissing the problem: my fridge was freezing the milk(solid...picture rock hard gallon of milk) they said higher the temp in the fridge then my milk was rotting, lower the temp, but then it freezes, don't use the spot it is freezing in ... seriously. Or the dishwasher would leave what looked like dirt in my dishes, run bleach through it still happening, run this dishwasher cleaner through it ... still happening ... and no response. then the screen to the balcony wouldn't close and kept falling off track...there solution don't use it! Then the actual slider wasn't closing all the way bc the floor was uneven first tech that "fixed it" made it so it took real muscle power to open and close it, it was literally a battle to get it opened or closed and there was still a gap between the door and frame when it was closed. The second tech was great and fixed it (one of the very few issues that was fixed). The biggest unresolved issue... we paid extra for an apartment with a washer and dryer hook up ... the dryer stopped drying clothes so I bought a new dry for 400(wasted money) dollars brand new. Same problem! ... So then I think there is an issue with the vent. They come out and clean it, it works for a couple weeks ... then again it starts taking 2 to 3 time to get it dry... they put in a new vent...great for about a week I reported it again and this time I did my research the vents they had put in were not up code and were not sufficient to vent as needed I showed them the guidelines on how to make the new vent up to code so it would work properly I did all the foot work for them and they still didn't fix it. If those issues weren't enough to make me go batty the fact that they will let anyone rent there doesn't help either between drunks and the addicts it makes for interesting nights ... especially when they are fighting naked outside and the cops need to called all the while it can be heard loud and clear from the windows of my kids rooms ... yep I was done and we ended up moving out a month early and during moving while we weren't there the maintenance men stole my broom my vacuum and beautiful curtain rod (but left the curtains and the hooks to hang it?). Still have yet to turn in the keys and we have until the first to get all our things...they had no business even being in there let alone deciding that our stuff was up for grabs!

The location is one of the best things about living at Sweetwater Cove, also knowing that the office staff are great ppl.. Any concerns or issues I had they were speedy to my request. I enjoyed living at this property.. 2 thumbs up..

Not a bad place to live. However, they should consider updating the appliances. I am in a 2 bedroom 2 bath and the square footage is great for the price. I do wish they would consider making this a gated community and increasing the security. Nothing too bad but could be better.

False promises, incompetent management We were promised an apartment if we worked out a deal with another apartment complex that we owed money to. A week before move in, they decided to pull back on their promise, leaving me, my roommate and her two kids scrambling for a place last minute

Horrible. They don't up keep anything. They overcharge for bullshit and are always saying you owe when you have the proof that you don't. No parking so if you're pregnant or have multiple children expect a long walk to your front door. Just horrible all around couldn't wait to leave.

It's crazy to hear these things about this place. I used live here when I was younger it was a cool place to grow up. Now that I have a family of my own I was considering moving back but with the negative views I a definitely having second thoughts. Doesn't sound like the community it once was.
