    The best place to live in downtown Columbus, close enough to walk to everything but also far enough to feel like the suburbs. The staff are wonderful! The gym is the best for an apartment complex. Parking easy and not a pain.

    Yes the apartments are very beautiful and I would like to know a little bit more about them and is there an application fee because I do not have dogs or cat so that's why I was going ahead but it's a quiet neighborhood I know some people that used to live there but didn't even got to stay and my brother used to live up off of hard road so I will give this excellent thought and I would just like to know when I can be able to check them out again

    We've been living here for several years, and truthfully it's been one of the best apartment experience we've ever had. It has a beautiful view of a quarry, a great beach and pool, and the office staff are exceptionally kind and willing to go out of their way to help the tenants. I'm so appreciative of everyone here and am very thankful we've had three wonderful years at Runaway Bay.

    I have overall liked living her, I have struggled being by the pool with the noise in the summer so keep that in mind on what unit you picked. I have also had some trouble with the noise since there are so many units right next to each other. The size for the price is great, having a basement and a back patio has been amazing and is what really pulled me in. They have gone through 3 managers but the most current one seems to be working hard to improve the the grounds which is nice.
