    I just moved into Tuscany apartments. Everyone is friendly and so nice. I feel safe and well cared. They answer all kinds of questions and provide good care

    4/5 Anonymous on Feb 20, 2023

    I've been living in Tuscany apartments for 6 months. The apartment is nice and the location and amenities are great. I really like that packages are delivered to the front of our apartment. My only complaint is with the noise caused by some neighbor and the lack of help I've been receiving from the staff and courtesy patrol. Overall, I would recommend this apartment
