STAY AWAY FROM THESE APARTMENTS IF YOU USE YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. They will rent to folks that don't have one with no problem. BUT BEWARE. If you decide you want to leave and even if the rent is paid up and you leave the place spotless and they rent it within that same month!!! Even if…
1615 Hermann DrHouston, TX 77004
This place puts on a good show when you view the apartments, but once you sign the lease, good luck. The first time we moved in, they said we'd get one apartment which was facing the pool and had a very nice view, but once we signed the lease and moving day came, they said they switched us to an…

I have lived at Chateaux since 2007. I love it here! Why? Because your not just another tenant or an apartment number. They know you by your first name. They care about their residents as if they were family. As a tenant/ office team we've helped other tenants having difficulty in one way or another whether it be a ride to the grocery store or Lakewood to checking on a neighbor, friend, fellow dog walker you haven't seen in a few days. The familiarity is what attracts me and keeps me here as a tenant. My prices go up like everyone else's and I vow to do whatever it takes to be able to continue in my beautiful cozy apartment. I have lived in four units and it's my experience no two units are exactly alike! Unique! I have never been robbed and my vehicle has never been broken into but it doesn't surprise me that it has happened. It's happens everywhere folks. There are some lazy pet owners that do not pick up after their dogs BUT there are dog bag stands all over the property. I have no problem picking up another dogs doo doo as well as my own dogs doo doo but hey that's me! Laundry rooms are everywhere. Maintenance comes in a timely manner. Often you'll find me in the clubhouse eating popcorn provided by Chateaux, surfing the internet on one of 6 computers. Gloria, Wayne, Eric, David and the blonde lady are wonderful. I love them and call them my friends
I do remember what they were like before the renovation and still I will stand behind recommending them to anyone else. I have had 3 friends move in the apartments who have either married or moved away for work and we still talk about the days we all lived there. I constantly have comments from visitors on how quiet and peaceful the apartments are. And I agree I live near the castle and I am not sure if I even have neighbors since I dont hear them. With that said, it has very friendly neighbors and it never fails that I am being waved hello or someone is saying good morning/afternoon as I pass them by when I am walking around. (I dont know them but its always nice to see a smiling face) I am not sure how many kids live in the complex but I have not seen many, but I can count them with one hand. DOGS! very cute ones too! they have dog friendly areas all around the complex. I know what the apartments looked like before and after and I can say they are a HUGE improvement, aesthetically speaking. Its unfortunate that some have not had my experience with these apartments, all I can say is that I have lived in other apartments and NONE have been perfect, but if you are looking for longevity and place to call home. (like I have) Chateux has it!
If you are considering this Villages of Briar Forest as your next apartment complex you may want to check out their policies on parking before you sign a lease. All visitors who do not have a permit permanently affixed to their car must park outside of the gates provided that they are lucky enough to get one of the few parking spots, approximately twenty parking spots for the over two hundred units in the complex, that are outside of the gate. Which means all of your guests will have to enter a code and walk through a large, dimly complex to reach your apartment. If they have to carry anything with them at all you will likely be meeting each your guests at the front gate and transporting them back to your apartment. Even if you have a frequent guest that you have a permit for they may have trouble parking anywhere near your apartment as the spaces within the gates are very limited as well, especially if you live towards the back of the complex. Should your guest decide to drive into the complex and park without a permit be forewarned that they are quite likely to be towed to the tune of $225 for a single day in the towing storage lot. If you do not plan on having anyone come to visit you this may be the apartment complex for you.
I am a single father with a 5 year old daughter and we have recently moved into 3737 hillcroft apts. I am pretty picky when it comes the safety and and well being of my child's surroundings and place we will call home. After researching and viewing many apts in the area and other apt complexes around I chose 3737 hillcroft apts. the office staff is very friendly and welcoming. Gabby Cardenas was an angel in the whole process of me determining where I was going to decide to make a home for me and my daughter. She went above and beyond the expectations I had received from other leasing offices and apt complexes in helping me get what I WANTED instead of what I had to settle for. (Unlike many other complexes I had previously viewed. She delivered on every promise that was made and some. She is a part of the NEW management company, Presidiumre, that has taken over on the complex and are doing great things already with the property. Can't wait to see what the future holds for me and my daughter as residents of this property. Highly recommend you give her a call and see what I am raving about. Make sure you ask for Gabby and I am sure you will be happy with the results!!
My wife and I moved into this property back in 2012 for our first apartment together. It was operated under different management at that time and although they were all friendly, the Berkshire Communities (current staff) is very professional and definitely easy to trust them as your landlord. In three years we never had a service request go longer than 48 hrs to repair (emergencies were handled immediately as well). The neighbors are all nice and ideal for any individuals whether your single, married, have a family, etc. Their pet policy is aligned with other properties and they provide many dog waste baskets around the grassy areas on property. The only negative comments we could make is the main gate malfunctions occasionally so be cautious of it's actions, as well as their could be more lighting throughout the visitors / 4th floor of the garage and exterior parking spaces inside the community. The property was very safe and the area is perfect if you're looking to live inside the 610 loop / Galleria / Bellaire area. Overall, my wife and I would recommend this property to anyone and we really enjoyed our stay at the Estates at Bellaire from July 2012 - Nov 2015.
In all the years I have lived here, I have never had my car or apartment broken into. I realize I am responsible for my own safety. I do feel safe living here. But I also realize that I live in the 4th largest city in the U.S. and crime is everywhere. You just do what you can to not become a victim. I urge everyone that reads this to go to the Houston Police Departments website and pull up crime stats.for different zip codes and include 77056. You will discover that every part of Houston has crime. I have friends that live in the Woodlands, The Heights, Sugarland, Katy, Meyerland, and here, and they tell me the same thing, CRIME IS EVERYWHERE! Again, you do what you can to protect yourself because no one can promise you that they are there to protect you. When people here have had their cars broken into in the past, it has been reported that they had left expensive items in their vehicles. I really think it is unfair for people to make my home sound like the ghetto when it is not. Chateaux Dijon is a wonderful place to live. Its sad that some people have personal issues that make the whole world look sour in their eyes. Thanks for your time!
I moved into Chateaux Dijon apartments back in 2011 when I relocated back to Texas. I lived there with my young son for 2.5 years. I loved it. I felt safe and it was within 2 miles of my job and my son's school. The staff was always nice and helpful, probably because I was always kind and respectful to them. The few and minor maintenance issues I had in those few years were resolved within a day or two. I had an opportunity to move into a house with a yard, in the same neighborhood, so I gave notice and moved out. Fast forward one year later, my landlord decided to increase my rent dramatically in keeping with the current market value of the neighborhood. It was an amount I could no longer afford, so I decided not to renew my lease. When deciding where to move to, and without a second thought, I applied back at Chateaux. The staff was so happy to have us back, and gladly showed me several units available. I opted for a larger town home this time around and I'm happy to report that I'll be moving back in early February. Although I'll miss having a yard, I know I'm moving back to a place that felt like home, with nice people around me.
I just recently moved to the community and so far things are not so bad. At first I was a little unsettle because the apartment I moved in was not what I expected in view of the model I had seen. However, after talking to Maria and completing my walk through sheet, maintenance came out remove the cabinet put more flooring, painted the wall, moved a couple of other things around and made some minor repairs I like the apartment much better. Plus I have a view of the pool. The home is smaller so I had to downsize but I probably needed that anyway. Maria was very helpful and very nice through the process. So far its been quite. My complaints are that I have to buy ice or ice trays because I don't have a frig that makes ice which I think is outdated. My upstairs neighbor really walks hard (LOL) I am downstairs. The entry gate is always open which means anyone at anytime can enter. And at sometime in future management should consider putting washer/dryers in the units. Otherwise I don't have anything negative to say about Fairfield Trails, I have only been here for a couple of weeks. Thanks
Can't find a better place for the $ price in the Galleria! I have lived at the Chateaux in multiple apartments & in different buildings for over 20 years!!! I also have never had any kind of crime happen to me here. I feel comfortable coming and going anytime day or night..Another reason I love it here! For the age of these apartments= things wear out = the maintenance guys work hard with getting things fixed in a timely manor...I have never had maintenance not try to get an issue fixed for me as soon as possible! As for the office ..let me ask you this..who has a manager that has been on any Large property for 22 years and assistant manager for 12 (ish?)yrs -through multiple owners & management companies? = hello none I know of...say's to the stability in the office = which is so not normal in today's apartment world. I might someday move away from Chateaux Dijon... although currently with the new owners and All of the improvements why would I? (Not happening anytime soon!) Check it out - only you can know if these Apartments are the place for you- they still are for me!!!
Speaking strictly about buildings 1, 2 and 3, if you're looking to move here AVOID THOSE BUILDINGS. PLEASE! There's not much property management can do to assist you with the amount of noise, at least from my perspective. I've contacted them on numerous occasion (more than 6 times) between December until last week regarding the noise on the weekends. There are 3 apartments in Building 2 where it seems to be most apparent and unceasing. It's funny. When I first moved here I knew this would be the place I would live for years. It was so peaceful no one in your business... serene even. Now, between Thursday and Sunday you WILL (no even possibly) see men smoke weed out in broad day light while BBQ'ing but that bothers me only some... it's just the noise. The ridiculous level of inconsiderate music that comes from building 2. So, it's not that I'm not recommending Laguna Vista just don't move in Building 1, 2, and 3 where each of those building are facing each other on the inside of the complex. You will be locked in contractual annoyance.
