    This is a great place to live! Staff is always very helpful and so is maintenance. I would highly recommend living here.

    5/5 Natalie D. on Aug 22, 2016

    I only have good things to say about this apartment community. The staff is exceptional - very professional and pleasant, they go over and above to make life easier for residents. There are few repairs to ask for because repairs are done quickly and in depth, so things really get fixed, not in a band-aid way like some of the neighbouring complexes. Kudos to Brian for managing this community so brilliantly and to his staff.

    5/5 Happy r. on Oct 7, 2022

    I live here with my minor son and I have lived here for some time. I have had the best experience living here than at any other apartment community that I have called home. The staff are very accommodating and the maintenance staff are exceptional. I gave Villas at Stone Oak Ranch a five star rating because they deserve it! I am happy and blessed to call this community my home.

    It's been awesome! Renewing for our 4th year! Only wish we had a slightly larger kitchen, but outside of that everything is great, staff and General Manager are always very helpful and kind. Right off Parmer across from Apple Inc. Can't ask for a better location.

    Nothing gets fixed. They mark it as fixed but it definitely isn't. It would be a absolutely great place if it did. My rust and stains were painted over in my sink. That's messed up in so many ways. My bath leaks. Alot. Etc etc.

    My husband and I have only been here for two months and we LOVE it. The grounds are beautiful, the location is amazing, and our unit is stunning! We are so incredibly happy with The Madison. Ben and Niesha have been kind and responsive to any needs we have had. We hope rent will stay close to what it is now, because we definitely plan on staying here for a very long time!

    3.5/5 Jc on Aug 17, 2022

    Area and location is great. The gym needs weights, water, and cleaning supplies. The pool is annoying closed to often and we pay for these amenities. ALSO THE BATHROOM in pool area is never cleaned, never any toilet paper or paper towels. I clean and bring my own every time I go and it's gross they really need to fix this. The pool patio sets never have their umbrellas up, even in this texas heat. Grill need to be clean more often. Never any emails on updates for location of any type.

    I really liked how quick the maintenance team is to address the service requests. The gym is nice and clean. The community is nice to go out for a long walk. My only complaint is with the noise that Home Depot makes. 1 day I was woken up at 2AM by the sound of what sounded like leaf blowers that came from Home Depot and I had to make a noise complaint at 311. I wouldn't recommend people leasing apartments that are directly facing Home Depot.

    I lived here for 12 years. The staff us great and always helpful. I just happen to have to move during the time when the country is in crisis with the covid-19. Since I have no one hat can help during this time I am hoping for a little grace time to complete the move without penalty fees. It is hard enough right now to move by yourself. I have done s\the stay at home for safety. Moving as quickly as I can.
