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 have lived at stone lake lodge since March 9th of this year. I initially moved in with my husband from Chicago, and wewe were looking for a nice, two bed/one bath with affordable rent and in a good neighborhood.. We lived previously in uptown Chicago, and other than his job transfer, the crime is why we left.. We knew nothing about Indy when we moved here, and i must say.... I am pleased with our apartment choice! I have since given birth to or first son, and i believe fully that stone lake I'd a wonderful place to raise my boy ! The woman who runs the place is strict as can be, and the has been ZERO shootings, stabbings, rapes, or any other major crime issues since we moved in! The amenities are amazing two pools, one is year around... A hot tub, tennis, play grounds, anda beautiful clubhouse with free internet, computers, tv, pool tables and more.. Everything is kept really clean, as well as the grounds.. They offer lots of activities to get involved in that are free of charge, movie nights with snacks, drink get togethers for adults, bibke study on wednesday, carnivals with games and prizes food and drinks... Halloween dinner also with games and prizes... Bingo seasonally, and other activities where you can win snacks, cash money, gift cards, and even free rent! Maintenance is up on everything.. Of course you're going to have leaks, thinks are going to break and need fixed... It's public housing for God sake.. But they do a great job at fixing things and on a timely manor.. My fridge started failing one night about two in the morning, and i was scared to lose my groceries.. By two thirty, all of my food was sitting in an ice cold, new refrigerator.. Overall, i enjoy living here.. I love feeling safe enough to walk around at night with my son... Security I'm knowing they will fix things on demand.. Being able to socialize at the free events offered and make new friends.. If you're looking for a place to live, on the Southside area.. This place is for you... It may have been a bad place at one point in time, but it is just lovely now..
First Day ~ Its rather disparaging that I am... already having to write a review about an apartment complex. I recently signed a lease with Willow Lake Apartments with a move in date of Friday, October 7th, 2011. I have a rather extensive review process of how I research apartment complexes, whether I deem them appropriate living conditions, what type of neighborhood the complex resides in, et cetera. Willow Lake Apartments met all criteria and prior to signing the lease I was quite impressed. I worked all weekend, with the assistance of friends to load the moving truck in order to move in this morning, October 9th, 2011. Now as anyone who has moved before one would most likely back up the moving vehicle as close to the complex as possible, especially if you live on the second floor. I have been renting for more than 20 years and on moving day this has always been a welcomed OR acceptable practice. Unfortunately that was not the events that transpired this morning, at 10:00am. No sooner had I left the cab of the moving truck, one of the on-site staff had stormed over and proceeded to barate NOT ONLY myself but my friends, for parking so close to the building and strongly advised that I park further away from the building. After having done such she proceeded to storm back to what myself and my friends had perceived as her friends. Having not even spent a single night in this new complex I already feel discouraged and rather irritated with the unprofessional manner and lack of common etiquette this staff member portrayed. If I recall I am the customer. With being a customer you would hope for some level of professional courtesy or etiquette; especially given their monthly rates. A complaint has been filed with the Regional Manager and I have been reassured that this type of unprofessional behavior will not occur again.
Avoid this place. The people who live there are less than reputable, some of the office staff are miserable to deal with and some of the maintenance staff take forever to get things done. It's unfortunate because at least 1 person in the office and at least 1 maintenance employee are really on their game and get things done and are professional. However, the "upper" management is completely out of touch with their tenants. They have a pool, but forget about using it as kids from many of the other complexes in the area come to the pool to use it and the office does nothing to stop it from happening. If you come to the pool anywhere from 3pm-7:30pm, you might as well not even bother as it is packed with people who really shouldn't even been in it. (non tenants). The "fitness center" has had problems for years. Pins for the weight machines are missing, the treadmill does not work at all. They are supposedly trying to fix those things, but it has been being "fixed" for several months now. You used to be able to rent out the clubhouse. They no longer have that option, the pool table upstairs is in poor shape, there are cars on the property that are abandoned and the office doesn't seem to care. It's a shame, it uesed to be a good place to live...easy access to major area of town...but now it's just not worth it.
I really enjoy living at Sundance. I moved here in Feb 2010 and will happily be renewing my lease next week. I looked at many different properties before I arrived at Sundance. It was the staff that won me over. They were very professional and comfortable to be around. They addressed all of my questions and were very accommodating. Situated in a lovely neighborhood, you're just 5-10 minutes away from practically anything you want to do. I love my apartment - good size, built in book shelves, a real fireplace, and a great view of the lake. If you like to fish it's a wonderful place. You can walk out the door and be casting in seconds. Personally, I have never had a problem with maintenance issues or staff. Whenever I called they were here that day or the next. Due to my job I lived in six different states over a seven year period. I'm no stanger to finding a good place to live. Based on my experience, I will continue to recommend Sundance to anyone looking for an apartment. Cheers!
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.
I really wanted my Stone Lake Apartment to work, but after the maintenance men running in and out of my apartment more than my own personal guests, I am breaking my least very early. I had a flea problem, that was taken care of fast. I had a small outlet fire, water main break in one of the bed rooms, that flooded the carpet floor. Very very cold closets and floors, super high eletric bill, and 3-4 different times maintenance had been in to fix a fuse. Very quite neighbors. Wonderful amenities. It took over a month for Washing Machine company to refund my money, for broken washer I used. While letting them know I needed to break my lease agreement and move, they gave the feel of penalty money, money, money was more important than my safety. FYI get renters insurance.
Rent increases each year by $20. Took 6 weeks for them to address a mouse problem. Before that they wanted to take a "Wait and see" approach where we had to remove mice caught every few days from our apartment. We had a slab leak which has caused our electric bill to go up and our apartment to be torn up, we're told they *might* give us $10-30 if we come back when we get our bill to prove the difference. Told multiple times not to worry about the required 60 day notice to move out because they will "work with you". Which amounts to, if someone else is dying to rent your apartment they will credit your rent from the day the new renters move in.
If you like to have big parties, this is not for you. Some residents have lived her for 20 + years. Very low crime rate. Huge apartments and very nice on premises management staff. owners don't want to put a lot of money into up keep but they are not slum lords. Beautiful places to walk and most residents take pride in their exterior surroundings. Try it out and you will see that this is the place for those who enjoy trees, grasslands, ducks, and all sort of birds. I saw an egret the other day. Great bargain for the square footage, not like the apartments built in todays economy.
