Although the price is competitive for "like" properties near the ocean front, this is not the best property I have ever lived in. The cabinetry is old and fiber board, the appliances are outdated and counter tops cheap. The pool area is not family friendly; parties, beer drinking, cigarette smoking, rowdy crowds throwing and kicking balls accross the pool, occupy the pool area on weekends and it isn't always fit for small children. The biggest negative is the customer focus of the office staff; they are often rude, very unfriendly and not welcoming at all. I have lived in past properties where not only does the staff know your name, but ask about your family and recall past discussions. These girls often act as if you are inconveniencing them when you go to the office. I recall once where one of the staff just looked at me when I walked in and didnt bother to ask if I could be helped. Dont expect any warm welcome when you arrive for move in....they likely have to scramble to figure out where your apartment is and wont even escort you there; just hand you the keys. The grounds themselves are pretty well maintained and the maintanence staff are very nice and responsive. This has improved over the past couple of years. I will say that they do try to offer classes, gatherings, social events, etc. for the residents, which is nice. Overall, the apartments are so-so, the office staff is less than acceptable, the maintanence staff very responsive and kind and grounds in good shape. Average place to live and based on rental rates, its 3 stars for me.

I've been a resident at Columbus Station since 2009 and plan to stay for a few more years until I'm ready to purchase a home (which will probably be a Dragas Home, since they are the owners here...) I've lived in several states and in many apartments and this is one of my favorites. Very upscale interior features (like wood floors, granite and marble), I have a full size washer and dryer (which is a must for me), and I just like the overall layout (it has good wall space, closet space and is pretty open). I've dealt with the office staff and maintenance on a handful of instances and find that they're easy to work with (I have a dog, so I like to be home for any repairs, and I have packages delivered alot and they sign for them if I'm not home). Having lived in about 10/11 apartments in my lifetime, I feel like for the apartment I get here, for the actual construction (related to noise between apartments) for the location ( I walk to Town Center alot) and for the overall look of the community (they just did alot of annoying exterior work, but the place does look new now) I feel like I'm actually getting a pretty good deal. Don't get me wrong, I don't like paying money every month for something I don't own, but until I actually buy, this is a place I feel good about inviting my friends and family to.
I just moved into columbus station. It was really easy. The lady helped me apply online because I was out of state. I really like my apartment! I did have one problem when I moved in so I called for a maintenance man. One of my bedroom outlets wasn't working. He showed me that is was controlled by the light switch. I felt kinda dumb, but the guy was really nice about it. I love that I can just walk right to Town Center and get discounts with my reward card! I used the gym for the first time and really enjoyed it! It looks brand new and I was able to use my ipod with their docking station! My neighbors are really nice and it is so quiet here!
