Some quality improvements could be made in the apartments. Shower head, for example. Regular cleaning of windows. Otherwise, it is a delight to live here. The staff is friendly, location supreme.

I’ve lived in the Flamingo Apartments for 8 years and it really is an overall good building filled with mostly good people. Now I will say that the laundry room machines are exhausting - unclear why they continue to be a constant headache and management won’t move forward with a better option.
