    Nice place to live

    5/5 Jamesetta M. on Apr 1, 2020

    I feel that it is a good place to live. Not noisy at all. Everyone seem to be pleasant. The pets are nice and good behavior. Sometime people don't pick up pet waste. Overall it's decent.

    Management is great to work with and loving my neighbors. Laundry facilities, gym and community center are well-kept all 24 hours of the day. Location is perfect.

    I have overall liked living her, I have struggled being by the pool with the noise in the summer so keep that in mind on what unit you picked. I have also had some trouble with the noise since there are so many units right next to each other. The size for the price is great, having a basement and a back patio has been amazing and is what really pulled me in. They have gone through 3 managers but the most current one seems to be working hard to improve the the grounds which is nice.
