Great Living Experience!

I moved in here about a year before covid happened and everything was great. When covid hit, that is when I experienced quite a bit of issues with maintenance ect. I have two young children and was under a lot of stress and ended up taking it out on the staff here. My point is, is that this year has been a tough/stressful one and my frustration got the best of me when it should have been my patience and kindness. I am grateful that the staff of Drakes pond have worked with me (put up with me I should say??)!They have allowed me to keep a roof over my 4 year old son and 3 year old daughters head. Being a pretty much single mom with a little help here and there has been hard this year and I never meant to take it out on maintenance nor staff. I appreciate it very much. ?? I have dealt with Courtney and Susan mainly when I have had to talk or come into the office, so I want to thank you two especially for all your help and generosity. You guys rock! ??

Just moved here. The office staff and maintenance are amazing. Very friendly and they do a great job of showing you around. They are quick to respond/fix any issues that you have. It's a fantastic place to live since you're surround by all your favorite shopping spots/restaurants!

Parking

Visitors taking up parking spaces. Many times I've had to park further away from my apartment. Tenants having their boyfriends stay through the week taking up parking spaces.
