Can I Get a Pet if I Live in a Small Apartment? »
Living in small space doesn't mean you can't have a furry friend -- it just means you have to do some planning.

We've put together a small list to get you started on your journey -- and the first step starts with a single box.
Must check this place out! Great food! Price is also reasonable. Will not be disappointed with what you order.
These are very oooollllldddd buildings (1926) with lots of maintenance issues all the time. We just had a notice posted that the hot water will be off for a month because they are replacing the pipes. How are we supposed to deal with that? It has already been off once or twice a week for several months. Staff is nice when you complain but it isn't like they are going to knock any money off your rent for tolerating this. Our apartment had roaches really bad when we first moved in but they eventually got them taken care of. Dryers take over an hour to dry a load of clothes which ends up costing over $2. Also two of the three coin operated washers will wait until you almost get your $1.50 deposited then they will have a glitch and show you haven't put any money in. Parking is a big issue. You can choose between parallel parking on the street and getting your car bumped about once a month or pay for a parking garage that is 2 blocks away or pay them to park in their lot with very small spaces that are very cumbersome to exit. Be sure to try parking in the space and leaving before you enter into a lease for one of their parking spaces! The spots along Roanoke require you to remove your car by 7am or it gets towed so beware! Don't underestimate the noise and dust coming from the Plaza Vista construction project. With the new hotel and office building going in over there it will make this place even more noise and congested. These buildings are all concrete and brick with no insulation so expect your utility bills to be very high. They say your heat is free from a steam boiler but they only turn them on sporadically. You end up paying for an electric heater to stay warm then wake up in the middle of the night burning up because you left a radiator knob open and they finally turned the boiler on - then you open a window to cool down - totally ridiculous. These radiators knock when they come on and some of the radiators you can't turn off all the way so they always heat. Of course there is no thermostat to set to control them like modern systems have. If you think this is your best solution then you DEFINITELY HAVEN'T LOOKED HARD ENOUGH!!!
My husband and I went to this location last evening and was first to have our name put on the wait list for a booth in dining area, a family came in about 3 min. later and checked out the outside deck area but decided they did not want out there so was put on waiting list. A booth was cleaned off about 10 to 12 min. after we arrived and they never called anyone up so I went to counter and 2 people plus manager was standing there and I said I see u have a booth available and the manager said yes I told them, so I am figuring they will let us sit but no they took the family that was after us--so I ask why and they was speechless and finally said I don't know. Hey they are the one with the waiting list. So I ask to talk to the manager and lo and behold it was the one that had said I told them--so I ask him what happened here and he threw them under the bus saying I told them instead of taking the blame for what he had them to do. (I do believe.) I agree my husband and I are in our 70's but we do not deserve to be treated that way. This is one of our favorite places to eat but will never step foot in this place again. We take our grown children, grandchildren and other family members to here often but never again. U ignored us like we did not matter but we do. As retirees we probably put more money into your place than the family that u stiffed us for. Well good luck and yes I will tell everyone I know how we were treated.
My apartment may be small, but I have good neighbors and only having to pay electric is really nice. Not that long after I moved in, I lost my job and was on unemployment and had trouble paying my rent on time. The office worked with me for several months making arrangements to pay late so I could get caught up. I felt really bad about my situation, but the office was as supportive and kind as they could be. Parking isn't too bad. I just go with the free parking and sometimes I have to park a couple blocks down when I get home really late, but I still usually get a spot in the lot next to my building. The elevators have been so much better since they updated them. I used to have to take the stairs frequently, but a couple years ago they redid them and it's such an improvement. I like the area, too. There's the park across the street and there are several restaurants nearby and a corner convenience mart a couple blocks down. It's pretty easy to get around.Overall, I'd say this place as been a great place to live
Great food wonderful service we love it Breakfast all day we love it Lots of choices We love the chicken fried steak and a T-bone steak was great my kid had a Mickey Mouse pancake was perfect thank you
I have lived at Carrington Place for almost 5 years. I love it. It feels like a home with my own front door (no stairwells) and an attached garage. I never hear my neighbors and I know most people that live around me. They plan resident events like breakfast, bingo and bunco. The pool is gorgeous and they have done a lot of upgrades. It is a great value for the money.
The most disgusting place I have ever rented. The property is dirty with dog poops everywhere. The move-out experience is worst. Expect to pay hundreds even if you keep the house in original condition. Stay away from this place.
I don't even know where to start with how bad this apartment complex is ran. No idea who actually owns the place to complain about office staff or problems not being solved. The newest office lady Norrisha is just a walking attitude problem (mainly just towards other women) who claims no responsibility for the mistakes she makes. Coming into apartments with no notice and not even knocking before entering. Their pest control consist of them coming in to basically just be noisy because they don't spray or anything. They redid the parking lot but I'm not sure if I would prefer the potholes over the fact that you could possibly hit another car driving down the parking lot because there isn't enough room between the back and front parking to get through. They redid the siding over the summer (which is already falling apart) of all the buildings and phone service is beyond horrible. To make a call you either have to stand by the back window or go outside no other way around it. And forget about getting incoming calls. It's pretty much a legit crackhead breeding ground. Faulty outlets and light fixtures not being fixed. They state in the lease there is neighborhood patrol or crime watch which is a joke because pretty much every older model car over here has been broken into along with some apartments. Any apartment that has to emphasize the buddy system is probably a horrible place to live. I full heartedly regret moving here.
There is a reason why the best reviews about Yarco properties come from their own employees and the worst come from their residents. This alone should be revealing as to how they do business. They are a family run operation and know nothing about professionalism , decency , compassion or intregity. They only care about your money and will say anything to keep getting it from you. They act like the mafia when you try to get them to fix things and definitely when you try to leave the property. I lived on a Yarco property for years and in those years I had been flooded 3x and after each time I had no new carpet only replaced padding under it. I had no new paint on my walls , the countertop damage from a previous tenant was spray painted over but never repaired , I was disrespected by the manager and her staff , I was burglarized , my car was vandalized , cockroaches invaded my apartment from my neighbors place and I had to self exterminate cause the complex manager refused to send an exterminator over. 2 months later during my inspection she tells me my apartment smells bad and I say it is the bug bombs since you will not send an exterminator. Her exact words were 'I will send the exterminator when I feel like it'. I asked if she thinks that is how a professional is supposed to act and she tells me 'you know what? don't get beat up'. Like really? I contacted corporate to tell them that this is how the property manager of Bridgeport Apartments in Kansas City treats residents and yeah she is still working there. That should say more than enough about how Yarco really feels about their property tenants.Whoever works for Yarco and is replying to these reviews can save the energy and not waste my time with the same crappy response you are giving to everyone else. No I am not going to send you an email that we both know will not get a response. I have called and emailed Yarco multiple times since living on your property and only one call from Yarco was made to me. Why was it made? It was made because someone at Yarco heard from the property manager and she lied about everything. The Yarco representative only called to insult me and deny my claims. Then had the nerve to say 'I don't need to talk to the manager of your complex cause I know her very well and she would never do that'. I said I had proof of everything I was reporting to Yarco and these slum lords did not even want to see it. I swear that if I could have afforded to break the lease and if I had anywhere else to go after my first year I would have been off of their property. I pray for the day that unprofessional people like these and their properties are out of business. I do not recommend any respectable person to rent from these people. I promise that if I could afford an attorney I would be fighting you all in court for all you have done to me and my children.
Had been in the shopping center where they are located a thousand times over and again visiting Quick Trip, State Farm and a slew of other shops there and never once tried them; didn't even realize they were there.Was at Mazuma Bank across the street from there and needed to kill some time locally while my loan processed. Asked the loan officer for a recommendation of a good place to grab lunch and he gave me their name and pointed in the general direction of their shop. Told me the had the best macaroni and cheese in Kansas City. I gave them a try.He was absolutely right!!! I was entirely impressed with the mac and cheese... Not only is it the best in Kansas City, but probably the best I have ever had in my entire life. Mind you, I'm 58 years old and come from a family with a long history of southern comfort cooks.I'm not big on wings, probably why I never noticed them, but the make an delicious pulled chicken barbeque sandwich plate.It's a little hole in the wall type place and the staff seemed a bit distracted at times, but if you want some outstanding food at a good price, give them a try.
