    5/5 Vincent on Aug 31, 2023

    Absolutely perfect spot! Near the shopping areas off exit 12, about 20 minutes from Fort Moore, and the overall amenities at Grand Reserve are luxurious!

    5/5 Lisa L. on Jul 11, 2022

    I truly enjoy my "home" at Grand Reserve. I feel the apartment has a good lay out and one of the best costs per sq ft. It is a safe place and neighbors are friendly. The staff has really gone above and beyond with their customer service.
