I enjoy living here

Runaway Bay is a great place to live. Maintenance/office staff are super responsive and the proximity to the highways is super convenient. The only downside is that parking seems to be scarce after 9 pm which prompts me to park a short walk away from my building's front door. No big issue really but it sometimes requires planning.

Bumpy Start

Had a list of 7 repairs needed noted on our move in date and just had 6 of them fixed end of November. Without a dishwasher for 2 months, multiple follow ups with apartment reps and found out that maintenance closed the tickets on the repairs without completing them. Set up auto pay for rent and it went through in January, but not February or March. Many emails and phone calls to the leasing office and finally got it resolved. The reason for so many calls and emails is that nobody would respond to me, so I had to keep following up. My understanding is they have new staff and things "should" improve, however 3 emails over 1.5 weeks went unanswered with the new staff. Has not been a great experience so far but am hopeful that it will improve.

Apartment review

Management was not very kind or helpful. The apartment itself had damages that were there before we moved in.
