I LOVE VILLA FARIA APARTMENT HOMES. Its worth every penny. Management is so awesome! It is kid friendly, which is awesome because i have a 6 year old who loves to play outside. I would totally recommend to all my family and friends.
As a current resident here, I'd like to address the handful of people posting here about, "the shortcomings of management and maintenance". However, just because I've had a good relationship with management during my stay here at Canyon Springs, (2 years now as of December 2017), doesn't mean that I have not become bereft toward the actual owners and proprietors of this complex. To begin the management team has always been on task even to the point of sending maintenance to perform simple tasks such as actually replacing burnt-out light bulbs, smoke detector batteries, and air filters; many other managers just hand these items to install ourselves putting the cost on the tenant (I personally experienced this issue at more than one rental) *ahem*cough*any place owned by JD Homes!That being said, the same ones complaining are digging the grave when their complaint includes the phrase "try being late on rent!" How about "try" paying rent when it's due as per your lease? Problem solved. As for the rule regarding unsupervised children under 14 years, yes there is a vast grass play area complete with space for volleyball etc., a basketball court, and at least 2 play areas complete with slides and things to climb on for the little ones. However, did I mention there is a swimming pool? It wont take long for an unsupervised child to find their last breath in a pool. Beyond the safety hazards, there are children running amok, disrespecting others and causing mayhem (including the 14 year olds) so it's a wonder that management hasn't required that all minors be supervised when in common areas.Winn Residential, are systematically increasing the cost of living each year. The latest is using RUBS to charge for waste disposal, and water. It is an arbitrary system that is unfair for those who use very little water, only to end up paying for the people who take 45min showers. Please research the RUBS system for multi family units before considering leasing or renting here.

OR ARE THEY A PART OF THIS SCHEME!!! GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!
WARNING WARNING WARNING This office staff is slick with the application process. They will tell you that you have been approved and promise you certain rental terms, then they will deny the rental terms they previously promised and charge you more money just as you get ready to sign your lease. This happened to me:In the 3rd week in December 2016, I was in need of an apartment due to out of town work. I decided on Sierra Meadows Apartments since it was close to work. To make a long story short, I completed the application and received notice by email of my application approval based on my credit report. In addition the approval letter listed the amount to be paid on move in date. A week later and despite the rental terms already being set, I received a call from the office manager who stated that I would have to pay more money in a security deposit due to “owing a balance on debt.” First of all they already checked my credit and decided on the rental terms. Second, my credit report had no such balance on any debt. When I brought this to their attention they refused to acknowledge that I was right and they were wrong. Instead the office manger’s attitude was very unprofessional, dismissive, and disrespectful. I mean she tried to talk to me like I was a child, which did not go over well with me. The incompetence she displayed was disturbing and embarrassing to say the lease. At this point I could just pay the extra security deposit and move on, but it was about the principle. Also, I know that once a person extorts you for money they will keep on till they drain you dry. I know that I was not ever going to get the extra security deposit back because they would have found a way to take it. Therefore it was better to look elsewhere despite now having an inquiry on my credit report. I ended up finding a much better place for less money, this is karma.One last thought:Corporations such as Sierra Meadows make a living out of profiting off the misfortunes of others, which is why they hire certain office managers who will achieve this mandate. The mandate for Sierra Meadow’s is to find fault in an applicant with a good credit score. They will cherry pick their credit history in order to maximize profit. However the scam comes when they exploit your situation for financial gain. Shame on you Sierra Meadows
This complex is full of deceiving advertisements, and a very unprofessional management office that you can never reach especially the manager. Hey did i mention if you have a problem in your apartment it takes there unqualified maintenance department days to respond for some of the most minor problems. Well potential neighbors if you don't believe me take a walk through the complex and ask random residents about the complex, and you will find many different answers and stories about Canyon Springs. This complex is mainly filled with one race in particular that are out of control and act like they own the property just come by the property and you will see. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!
Unprofessional Management, Not Worth the High Price, The onsite property manager is unprofessional and treats tenants without respect. When I contacted the area supervisor she also was extremely unprofessional. Paid high rent, Never late and was treated terribly.
I've lived here for 5 years & Bullard West apartments used to be a very nice, well kept and friendly environment. Mel, our old manager knew everyone and was an experienced manager. With new management coming in within the last year or so the community has gone down hill. Where there used to be flower beds, there are now dry bushes and loose dirt, people have been moving in & out like crazy no tenant retention, there is absolutely no parking for your guests now and if they try to park in your area they get towed immediately with no warning knowing that it's in your area, the security guard kicks everyone out of the pool at 7pm in the middle of summer per new management's request (it's not even dark out at 7), the gardeners and tree trimmers leave a mess when they come, you can easily go outside and trip on branches when they've been here. I can go on and on. I would not recommend this place to anyone, needless to say they will be losing a 5 year tenant within these next few months.
Ive lived here for over 4 years. There are good and bad things about this place just like any other. When i first moved in the management was lazy and never got anything fixed. They have new management now and they actually fix things in a timely manner which is nice because most apartments take forever to fix anything at all. They have a year lease option which is nice and the rent doesn't go up at all if you keep renewing the year lease.A few bad things are that the area has gotten a bit "sketchy" No area in the world is safe from burglary but this place has gotten a bit bad. cars get broken into very often, mail got stolen, clothes in laundry have been stolen, items off of balconies have gone missing, and you kinda know its time to go when you see police helicopters hovering around with the light shinning down looking for suspects. It doesn't happen often but even a few times is too much for me. Also there are bedbugs here. Lots of units here have had them, its not uncommon for the managers to hear about it. But as I said before they fix problems quickly here. So if you do happen to get them they will call someone out within a few days to spray. I just think its a bit odd that they don't tell residents here about it and have everyone aware of a rising problem in the city. I guess are trying to keep it hush hush so people wont move out. At least they fix the problem fast, but still I wouldn't want to move into a complex that has had multiple bed bug problems. I plan on leaving after my lease ends. just a heads up for future residents here.Recap:Good:-rent never goes up with a year lease option-maintenance fixes problems quickly-you can pay rent online instead of using checks-apartments are a nice sizeBAD:-has had multiple bed bug outbreaks here-area has had quite a few burglary problems
