    Our favorite home in virginia. The staff is kind, helpful and professional

    4.5/5 Crystal on Jul 29, 2023

    This complex is in a beautiful and extremely convenient area. The staff is super helpful and always friendly. They seem to treat their residents like family. Lediamond (one of the main leasing office staff members) is absolutely amazing and very responsive. The grounds keeper (Phil I think?) is also wonderful. It's so calming just going for a walk on the grounds. The area is beautifully landscaped and well kept. Maintenance is not the fastest (in my experience), but is also not unreasonably slow. The bedrooms are a great size, and I never have issues with parking. It's very pet friendly and there are "poopy pouch" stands littered throughout to keep the area clean, as well as grills and an absolutely beautiful pool area with a large shallow end for the babies. They are constantly hosting events for the residents like movie showings, mother's day/father's day events, ice cream, and pool parties. My only complaints are that the rent is quite pricey (at least for a 3 bedroom). I don't think it's too expensive, but if you have one income it's definitely difficult. Additionally, if you live on a lower floor, you WILL hear the beeping from the sprinkler room (sometimes at night) which can be very annoying if you can't tune things out well. I am very satisfied with my decision to move here. The apartments aren't full of extra luxury items, but are modern and spacious. The living rooms are a bit small and awkward, but other than that, even the laundry area is amazing with wide double doors that swing parallel to the neighboring walls so that you can maneuver easily in and out of the hallway with your clothes. I definitely recommend it if you can afford a few extra hundred dollars for the peace of mind that you are in a safe, clean community.
