The Pembroke Villas can be the right home for a single person and/or family if they were in a different location, the persons selected to be your neighbors have class and the noise levels are kept a minimum. I searched and searched before signing the lease for a review on the apartments and was unable to locate any reviews at all. So I took the initiative to go directly to a few of the current residence and get their opinions. However, they all said it was ok but will be moving upon lease end date.
In addition, as I sat in the office of what will become many times after signing the lease there was a young woman there complaining that her toilet was backed up, she called the maintenance within the last 48 hours with no success for the Pembroke Villas to assist her in this matter as a rental property are legally binded to do. Also, another young lady at a different visit to the office complained of another backed up water. Another complained of noise above them as they lived on the 1st floor with the noise occuring around 10p-approx after 1am and the tenant wanted to sleep as they worked in the morning.
Around the corner is another Pembroke complex that is known for tons of car thefts and personal propery thefts (break ins) in the area of the complex. Now being a resident here at the Pembroke Villas in less than 5 months I too am a victim of persons breaking in my vehicle, a witness of on going noise above, people hanging outside all night with football being played by your vehicles and windows and car being stretched. I reported the incident to the police as well as the office. The office stand in manager/office assistance (spanish lady) replied to me OH YEH, EVERYONE KNOW NOT TO LEAVE ANYTHING IN YOUR VEHICLE! OH YEH THE THIEVES SOMETIME COME, WERE NOT SURE WHO IT IS. THATS A CHANCE. Then after saying those uncany comments to us. She asked us ""How do you like the place?"" We were shocked at this point!
This is to warn and/or give someone who searched as I did before chosing a place to call home something to go on. As i had no review and it evidence that reviews can help a person(s) like myself determine if this is a safe place indeed for myself and family to reside and SLEEP at night instead trying to watch our property which are the things we all work hard for in this economy!!!!
PS: Make sure the water bill is paid prior to you signing the lease and going to place the water in your name for service or the result will be...the office persons asking you to pay the balance of the bill and you will be reimbursed. Reimbursement is a false statement but shows you are desperate enough to do it in order to move in and you will never see that money in addition to them expecting payment of your rent no matter what.
A VERY UNTRADITIONAL PROCESS OUTSIDE OF THE LEASE! If you choose to proceed with this place, be sure to get a copy of all pages of your lease as well. I EXPERIENCE THAT TOO!
