Some of the apartments are a little outdated but they are upgrading them..I've lived here 2 years and haven't had any of these "issues" others are complaining about. Give Abbey walk a chance....it's no where near as bad as these other people are claiming. I would like to see a playground added but other than that...its a decent place to live.

This place is disgusting and infested with pests. The first day I moved in, I had to stay at a friend's because of carbon monoxide leak. My air conditioner was leaking into my carpet. The foundation is old. I reported my cricket problem twice and they claimed to have exterminated my apartment, but they did not. Everyone has a dog, therefore your building might be flea infested. I have bites all over my feet and ankles since I moved in 4 months ago. The picture I attached (I was only allowed to attach one, but I have plenty more) is a photo of the cricket droppings and spider eggs in my bedroom closet. I have cricket droppings on all of my walls. The customer service is terrible!!! The property manager is very rude. Terrible treatment of tenants.

To much to write about that place. The units look like they are 50 years mold! Nothing ever gets fixed, just dont do it.
I have moved out of the Bluffs Apartments by Rimsi Corp after living there for 7 years. They would not do a final inspection with me and said it would be done later and I would get word within 20 days. They sent me a bill for $779.29 for things that were not true or my fault and also kept my security deposit. On top of everything, they sent this to collections and are reporting it to the credit bureau. We cleaned that place from top to bottom before moving out. I also have taken pictures of the whole apartment right before leaving. Here is a list of what Rimsi Corp is trying to charge me for.(1) $125.00 Charge for cleaning. We cleaned and scrubed that apartment from top to bottom.(2) $ 8.25 Patio door gouged 2 holes. Those holes were made by contractors who were installing new balconies. (3) $ 25.00 Removal of chalk on 3 sides of brick patio. That chalk was was not done by me or my family, but by vandals. I have small children who rarely went outside because of the Bee problem and the Dog Mess on the grass.(4) $ 26.00 Replace 4 burnt up drip pans. This stove was very old and those drip pans were rusted and worn.(5) $ 55.00 Patio door screen hole. I think this hole was made when maintenance was trying to repair the track on this screen but can't prove it.(6) $ 6.25 Remove TV cable wires. Those wires were there when we moved in.(7) $ 25.00 Replaced bottom of bath vanity in master bath plus labor. That bottom was damaged from the loose faucet that I was complaining about for a long time. The first time maintenance checked the faucet, they said it was normal.(8) $ 25.99 Broken tile left of master toilet. That tile floor was very old and the tile pieces were coming up because of worn glue for a long time.(9) $ 8.25 Master tub nicks and hall tub. Those tubs are old and the nicks were there when we move in 7 years ago.(10)$ 46.24 Replace vertical blinds plus labor. I agree with the blinds.(11)$320.00 Carpet destroyed. There was a major water leak in the hallway that went on for some time that came from upstairs. Maintenance thought it was coming from the AC unit. I had to clean up those soaked carpets myself. We just had a major inspection and no one said anything about the carpets then. We did a good carpet cleaning ever after the inspection. Besides we lived there for 7 years and that carpet was only rated for 3-5 years.(12)$ 73.50 Broken outlets. These outlets were not broken. They were worn out since we moved there 7 years ago. The outlets are the responsibility of the landlord in which some were replaced, but not all. I found out that all of the outlets in the building were replaced after we moved out because they were old.(13)$ 34.81 Unreported water waste-Hall tub faucet drip. I have been reporting this drip for a long time. They have been out many times to try and patch it up, but the drip kept coming back.Total charges were $779.29. I complained to Rimsi about this and they did remove some of the charges which took the total to $714.00. This place was outdated when we moved in and should not have to be charged for normal wear and tear.
All i have to say is if you want to move in here speak to as many renters living here and they will tell you that this is the worse place ever to live.People say they hear mice or Squirrels in the vents, gross and that the metal doors are a nightmare because people are always slamming them.Noise is a huge issue, and biggest complaint. People say that you can hear everything from tv's to bowel movements in the neighbors bathroom.There have been reports of roach issues and the biggest thing for me is wow a pool, what else do kids have to do around here. a lot of people do not have cars and little kids so a play ground would make more sense, but there is nothing for kids to do and i see many kids playing in the road and on the side walk in peoples way. Or playing in the halls...no thank you.I feel like this is a great place for those with low standards, and that don't mind the paper thin walls they are so cheap b/c they have low quality buildings.everyone i meet is on a month to month until they can get the f out or are hear for a yr and thats it...stay clear of this place
