Since knowing more about the apartment you are considering is key to finding the right place to live, I will go through everything about the place I currently call home. Horizons is CHEAP. And, unlike many of the other apartments in the area, you can rent up to four bedrooms. There are problems, but I still rate this place exceptional because it's the best place I've ever lived. When you first arrive at the complex to visit, you notice first hand the groomed landscaping. Horizons cares about your landscaping to maintain a park-like atmosphere. Once a week during spring, summer, and fall, they come through and mow and tidy up the landscaping. You have to make sure your gate is open to welcome the mowers every week, but if it's open, they will mow your small patio area. For an extra fee, Horizons lets you keep up to two pets. Dogs of any size are okay, but there are a couple of breed restrictions. All cats are okay. There is a pool and a track with playground. The pool has excellent rules, unlike many apartments I've seen. Parents have to be with their kids . . . no visitors under 16, so you don't have a slew of partying preteens. There is a laundry mat for residents who don't have a washer and dryer in their apartment. Many apartments have w/d hookups. The apartments are total electric. There is a lot of space outside for the kids to play including empty areas with fresh grass where the boys of the complex and sometimes the girls play football. That is in addition to basketball goal at the playground, which has real playground equipment, not dangerous wooden pieces. The apartments are okay. Some are small while others are a little more spacious. Kitchens have dishwashers and garbage disposals. Maintenance is very good about coming to the rescue if something goes wrong too. The walls of the apartment are ugly - white with popcorn texture. You are allowed to paint as you want. I think all of the carpets they put in are oatmeal colored. There are plenty of windows, and all rooms have lighting built in except the living room area. All bedrooms have closet space. Some apartments have extra storage and attics. People must pass a criminal background check prior to leasing. Some neighbors are really awful, but they move out fast. Horizons is not afraid of evicting people who don't pay the rent, but if you are struggling they work with you. There are also a bunch of dumpsters, which is great because you can clean your apartment and not wait for trash day, and almost every day someone is throwing away good used items that can be reused, freecycled or donated to Goodwill. There are two great big problems with Horizons. Parking stinks. In addition, the residents can be jerks sometimes, but you usually only run into one or two in your area that need to be avoided. Kids can be a little out of hand, but that's the parents' fault, not the complex. In addition, if the dumpsters are full, some residents are jerks and leave trash on the ground. Maintenance cleans this up quickly, but sometimes you see it and it is repulsive. You can also sometimes hear airplanes and/or traffic depending on where you live. Overall, Horizons is Very good. Hope to see you there!
I've lived here longer than I planned to. There was a significant amount of time that the property ownership and management went through multiple companies. The current ownership has actually invested in the property. Their is a small fitness center with the laundry facility. They keep up with the pool. The grounds are cleaner and they make daily efforts to clean up any litter. They have been remodeling the apartments, upgrading the amenities and appearances and making any repairs needed. New windows were installed in every apartment. The location is fantastic. It's minutes away from downtown and near every major interstate (465,65, 70) This is an older property. But they are doing every upgrade possible and maximizing the potential. The current property manager Kirby is the best property manager that has been here since I've lived here. She has been a driving force behind implementing and executing the improvements that her company has commissioned.
i have lived here for almost 2 years. and we have been going through property managers and we only had 1 maintenance man and it sucked because nothing wasnt getting done. first it was mellisa, then bridgette, then latrina and now bertha. ever since bertha came she has been working hard on fixing the property and stuff like that and i will give it up to her because thats the kind of property manager we really need. Since then i have been getting everything fixed since then and she hired 2 maintenance mans. and ms tyra she is a working hard asst. Property manager and she has been here ever since i moved here and she is very nice. you haft to come move over here. nice staff and nice people and big homes. and they have pool, playground center and stuff like that. come to covington square is it very cool.
