I have lived at Chenal Lakes since last July and so far I have loved it! I moved to Little Rock from Conway and at first was apprehensive about apartments in general. Everyone I talked to told me to only look in West Little Rock, which is what I did. Very glad too! I toured a few apartments in the area but Chenal Lakes was the only one that I really liked. I have two dogs, one is small but the other one is close to 100 pounds. They don't have restrictions on weights, just breed restrictions which was AWESOME!! Everywhere else I looked said no more than 25-35 pounds, which severely limited where I could go. They also have a fenced in area for dogs to run around, which my australian shepherd loves! My dogs were my first concern. I got to look at a few of the floor plans and fell in love with the one with a fireplace! That fireplace came in handy too when the power went out during Christmas for four days, because my fireplace and hot water heater still worked (they run on gas in the bigger apartments)! Lifesaver!! I was a little afraid to go from a house in Conway to an apartment, because I don't like lots of kids but so far it's ridiculously quiet here. Which is good because I was afraid my dogs would bark all the time, but they don't make a peep! Enough rambling, I'm just really happy. I've heard horror stories from my friends at other places so I'm counting my blessings and plan to stay for another year or so!
I love living at Out In The Woods Apartments. I did at one time have a problem with bugs in my apartment but the Management was very helpful in taking care of the problem. It was from someone else moving in the building that I lived in that had them. The large community is nestled among a lot of trees in a park like setting with a lot of sidewalks to walk on. It is quiet, peaceful and there are birds and squirrels everywhere. The Management and staff that are there are very nice and have worked there for years! There are many residents also that have been there for years simply because you can enjoy nature but be close to everything in Little Rock. It is located right across from the Baptist Hospital and only a couple blocks from a police and fire station. The lease prices are reasonable. There is a pool, fitness room and a laundry facility if you choose to lease an apartment without a washer and dryer. Some of the apartments also have fireplaces. The office is also open on Saturday's. They try to make everything convenient and easy for their residents and I give them an A+!
The Landings at Rock Creek just completed an Energy update to the inside of all the apartments, including my own. They replaced the main light bulbs with flourescent ones, replaced the sink areators on the faucets with low flow ones and replaced our shower heads. This is an older property and I'm glad to see them trying to save energy! I know my utility bills will be lower, too. I've lived here for a little over a year, now, and I love it. It feels very private and the price is good for what you get. I love being able to access a hiking trail from the property, too! Parking is never a problem and I get home later than most at 8:30pm. I've seen the courtesy officer out making his rounds almost every night, which makes me feel like the staff care about our safety. Overall, this is a great place to live and I plan to live here for a long while.
