The Fountains

So far, everything here has been great. I love the apartment, even if some of the design/floor plan is a bit odd. I didn't rate the amenities because with COVID-19, we really haven't had the opportunity to utilize them. The location is prime, though. One block from the freeway, but you don't hear the freeway. Perfect.

Great 3 Bedroom Apartments

Having lived here a few months now I can’t easily say I think I’ll live here awhile! You really can’t get a better value in West Des Moines for what you get at the fountains! Big, beautiful apartments with washer/dryers IN UNIT, a great location close to I35, Jordan Creek Mall, and West Glen. Management is also polite and professional. Clean community. If I could improve anything, it would be to add a park and dog park for families but I will say we live close to beautiful parks! There is also a trail in walking distance!
