    I enjoy living here. I feel safe and comfortable. The office supervisor and staff are great! They communicate effectively. All maintenance requests are answered promptly. All concerns are taken into consideration and addressed. The office staff communicates by email and by phone to solve all concerns.

    I have been living at Governor Greens apartments for going on three years. This was one of the best choices I’ve ever made in choosing an apartment complex in Maryland. I will start off by saying that the management team is awesome. They are quick to take care of any issues and problems that you may have and they’re very polite, courtesy, and Professional. And the maintenance team is out of this world you put in a work order on Monday it’s fix Tuesday morning, is literally Fix the next day. The maintenance crew is quick they’re very professional. They clean up behind their selves and they come with all of their gloves and shoe covers. The next thing I love about Governor Green Apartments is the atmosphere is a Dog Friendly community, Where everyone walk their dogs and we don’t have no issues with people not cleaning up behind their dogs.The atmosphere around here is just a peaceful place to live and raise a family too. . We have beautiful gardens to sit in and beautiful playground to play in and it’s very safe place for them. I feel very safe living here we have the Bowie police department, five minutes away from the apartment complex. We also have a shopping center close by called the Bowie town center , we also have wonderful Restaurants to eat at we are literally close to the highway that will take you To the District of Columbia or Baltimore, Virginia. Let me mention about the up keep of the grounds at Governor Green Apartments they have one of the best ground team workers I’ve ever seen they keep the grounds clean and trim the grass. And the flowers be blooming so beautiful around summer and spring time. There’s no trash around here on the grounds the maintenance teams keep everything around the complex clean.We have velvet trash pickup’s in the morning and that’s awesome. They keep your inside of your apartment complex clean as well. This is just a awesome place to live, it’s really hard to leave because Governors Greens make it feel like HOME.

Living in Bowie, MD

Renters searching for a high quality of life within commuting distance of Washington, D.C. should put apartments for rent in Bowie, MD, on their list. Located approximately 35 minutes by car from the United States’ capital city and less than 30 minutes from Annapolis, MD, this small community is considered one of the best places to live in Maryland. Featuring a rich history, diverse community, and a plethora of family-friendly activities to enjoy during all four seasons, Bowie offers renters a tight-knit community with easy access to big-city amenities and job markets. Plus, its lush green spaces and safe environment make it a favorite destination for renters with families and professionals. However, renters who are considering relocating to Bowie should keep in mind that this affluent small town is located in one of the most expensive areas of the country. As such, the cost of living may be higher than what renters are used to if they’re from another part of the nation or even from elsewhere in Maryland.

Renting in Bowie, MD

Renters are few and far between in this sparse, suburban community, and property owners constitute the vast majority of Bowie’s residents. To that end, the housing pool primarily consists of detached, single-family homes in residential neighborhoods, although you may also find an apartment for rent in a low-rise multifamily building. Notably, renters should expect to experience some sticker shock when moving to Bowie as the average rent is on par with rents for the greater Washington, D.C.-Arlington-Alexandria metropolitan area and well above the national and state averages. Additionally, rental laws in Maryland cap the maximum amount for a security deposit for a rental at the equivalent of two months’ rent. Landlords must also return the security deposit within 45 days of renters moving out.

Bowie may be a small, suburban community, but renters can still accomplish most of their errands within the city limits. In fact, Bowie is home to a large selection of grocery stores catering to all tastes and budgets. Renters will find many familiar national and regional supermarket chains, including Safeway, Harris Teeter, Giant Food (two locations), Walmart, Target, Lidl, Aldi and bulk store BJ’s Wholesale Club. In addition, renters looking for specialty items will have access to an organic store, an Asian grocery store and an African product store. Plus, renters also have several shopping centers offering a selection of retailers and food options, such as the Free State Mall Shopping Center and Hilltop Plaza Shopping Center.

Transportation in Bowie, MD

Bowie may not be the right town for renters who do not or cannot drive because this community is largely car-dependent, regardless of where you rent an apartment in the city. Biking infrastructures are extremely limited, as well. However, there are some public transit options available to renters, both for travel within the city borders and commuting to Washington, D.C. and surrounding communities. For instance, Bowie has a Metrobus — which offers several fixed public bus routes — as well as a MARC Commuter train stop, which provides services between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.
