1. When you read "luxury living" on the website, take it with a LARGE grain of salt. They have certain amenities advertised that are non existent (the bark park, volleyball courts, grills, etc). The gates into the complex are always broken and left open. The outside of the buildings are disgustingly dirty and trees are untrimmed and touching the sidewalk. And the "utilities" that are included are only trash and cable. I don't know where all these people who have left reviews saying "all utilities included" are living, but it certainly isn't here! 2. The pond smells like a sewer. I'm pretty sure the sprinkler system is connected to this pond, because even the sprinklers small like garbage. It will splash on your car and come through your vents. Though I guess it makes sense, because the grounds are always littered with trash. 3. I have had things stolen form my locked car and straight from my door step. 4. Yes, I knew living next the airport would be loud. What I was not told, was that i'd have to listen to jet engines literally every hour of every day.5. This "perfect location" comes with a lot of traffic. People park where they shouldn't. You are surrounded by Hillsborough ave, which is literally one of the worst, most high traffic streets in Tampa, and Veterans expressway and 275. You can hear cars racing at all hours of the night and getting out of the complex in the morning is a chore.6. The BIGGEST complaint is the unprofessionalism of the office staff. They refuse to acknowledge any problem you bring to them, no matter how small. I have had constant issues with paying rent since moving in. They will tell you to pay through the website, but IF there website is working that day, it refuses to process the transaction. If you give them a money order, even if you hand it directly to a person, it will "go missing". The amount of money I have given to this complex in just 6 months is probably enough to cover my 13 month lease.
Very happy here. I love the fact that when I have left my garage door open by mistake the security guard calls and lets me know. It makes me feel safe.
Nice, quiet and safe! So far everything has been pretty good. I always feel safe walking at night and feel very comfortable here.

This is not a review, This is the management of this apartment community. We have had several inquires about being labeled as a second chance community. As of 3/5/2015 our qualification guidelines state that any person applying for an apartment at The Gardens will be denied for most criminal offenses, an eviction (even if it was only filed) showing up on the record, open bankruptcies, owing another apartment community over $2000, and some rental violations. If you have any questions please call for details before applying.Thank you, Management
Great first home. Very well maintained apartments inside and out, never had pest problems , friendly neighbors and staff, overall great place to live.
Best place to live. All staff provide the best customer service. There is consistency in the policing of community rules. The grounds are beautiful with a Florida feel. Glad you stopped painting.
I Love my new home!Upon first meeting Kristi and viewing the apartments, I knew I wanted to live here. Kristi brought me through everything professionally and with care. Not to mention Nicole and Mike. Next, and certainly not least is Brandon and Rob. Not only courteous, funny, accommodating but also very talented. They created and built two custom bathroom mirror frames that are absolutely beautiful. I have since met Warren and looking forward to meeting Jorge. These are a fabulous bunch of guys who demonstrate respect and care for the Gardens! I have not yet experiences the Fitness center or the pool area but hope to soon.
