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! ??

A+ Living

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.
