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.
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.
I am one of the most passive people you will meet, but Gateway will take any opportunity to take advantage of your good nature if you have it. SPEND YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ELSEWHERE - or you will regret it.Believe what you read about Gateway apartments; what you pay is not what you get, and what you have signed on to pay.. think again. The management at Gateway will look for any reason to charge you in excess of what you signed on your contract (and goodluck if you want to argue that.. Gateway is owned by a larger company with deaf ears).I chose Gateway because it came with furniture and I had a tight budget to begin with. I have been charged in excess of $1000 more than what I had originally budgeted for. This does not include my deposit that I won't be getting back due to damages caused by my housemates.When I initially moved in, my 15 year old mattress (still had the manufacture tag attached) had a large blood stain on it and I was advised that if I followed through with a maintenance request they were obligated to destroy the mattress, but I would have to buy a new one myself as they had no more to replace it with.I was assigned an underage housemate and another in the military, so having people over was an absolute no, and making noise after 9pm? - forget about it. My housemates stole my food on a regular basis, blocked up the kitchen sink with food waste and vomit and moved in their abusive boyfriends (yes, the walls are thin... If you aren't hearing "love" noises, you will hear the arguments).There are frequent thefts around the property (particularly bikes - I personally know of 9 that were stolen in my 4 month lease there, including my own) and most of the video cameras are fake (including the one at the 1595 entrance) so don't hold your breath to have anything recovered.The gates are regularly broken, the floodlights around the property are generally off (I fell as a result of this and am still having problems - I was advised this was a maintenance issue and not a safety hazard. It was still not resolved afterwards), and there is constantly trash around the property thanks to careless residents.If you came here to party, think again also. There are families and international college professors scattered around the property who are only too happy to call in a noise complaint or highlight underage drinking.I could go on for days if given the chance, but trust me when I say that you are better off staying elsewhere if only for your money.
DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT LIVING HERE!!!!! TERRIBLE MANAGEMENT, NO CUSTOMER SERVICE, POOR STAFF QUALITY. I REPEAT, GO AWAY. THERE IS A MILLION NICER PLACES TO LIVE IN TEMPE...Oh well, where do I start lol? I moved here on December 1st, 2017. My heater and washing machine didn't work for a month. They weren't able to fix it until the end of December. I had some other issues as well, but the main issue I am having and they still didn't fix it till now is due to Onnix neglecting to fix the hot water issue that caused all apartments on the west side of the complex to not have hot water, anyhow they were able to fix the issue on most apartments. However, the hot water issue in my apt and couple of other apts wasn't fixed. When I spoke to the Leasing office again they told me they will try their best, they tried fixing the problem but at the end, they weren't able too. They have lied to me about the temperature of the hot water saying its 102F, and there is nothing that they can do. Well I checked myself and it was at 93F, I called Tempe court and they sent an inspector to check on the issue and the inspector confirmed that the water temp is 93F and that Onnix is violating the code of the city of Tempe. I spoke to them one last time and they didn't offer any compensation to me, they only took $167 from my $1,000 rent... like really? I didn't have a working washing machine and no heater for a month and I still don't have hot water and you are going to take a $167 off only? They also said there is nothing else that they can do, just imagine taking an extremely cold shower at 6AM? I would be shivering and I started hating taking a shower lol, I even stopped going to the gym so I don't shower twice a day... If you want to live a miserable life, then go ahead and come live here :) DON'T GET FOOLED BY THE ONE MONTH FREE RENT OFFER, ITS A TERRIBLE DEAL IF YOU WANT TO LIVE IN A HASSLE AND CONSTANT PROBLEMS.
I loved living here.But a simple mistake I made ,they wouldent let me sign another lease.They had turned the water off to repair under ground pipes.I went to take a shower but no water.I forgot to turn the water back to off and when they turned the water back on,it flooded my bath room and the apartment below me.It was a simple mistake.The other problem I had was I was watching a friend of mines pet spider.it was on the floor of the bath room when it flooded and it tiped its cage over and the Brazilian wondering spider was loose in my apartment.About the same time the matinence man and the manager knocked in my door wanting in to check to see how bad it had flooded my bath room.I told them the water never got out of the bath room and that there was a SNAKE loose in my apartment and to come back in 10 minutes after I secure the snake.I didn't want to tell them that a Brazilian wondering spider was loose,one of the most aggressive spiders on earth.Well I found it and I got it back in its cage and called down to the office for them to come back up and take a look,but there minds were made up to kick me out because I had refused them entry into my place,but it was for there protection. There is no law against haveing a pet snake or spider and the next day my friend came back from his trip and picked up his pet spider.But I had lost my home.This is about the best place I've ever lived.The staff and matinence people are very helpful and respectful and the people are who live there are very laid back and happy.Now I wounder the earth,homeless and sad.
I have lived here since December of 2015 and I have nothing but good things to say about Tanglewood Apartments! Management is great! Maintenance is great! So ignore all the other old negative reviews! Tanglewood is getting better everyday, thanks to Jodi and Joe!
Absolutely awful. This is a complex for drug addicts and alcoholics. Music blasting all night, cussing all the time, cockroaches, dirt and garbage on the floor (no one cleans), management doesn't care and refuses to cooperate. It's just not possible to live here. There is noise from 20 big kids riding scooters and breaking things.
The Slums on Orange1. Place is full of roaches. I have had the bug guy out repeatedly since I moved in. At the pool, next to the ladders is where the pigeons hang out and defecate all over the ground. Never cleaned. 2.The maintenance here is minimal at best. Corners cut every time. My A/C leaked in the apartment, and the management and maintenance both said, “Let’s just see if it dries up and the problem fixes itself”. A month later, I finally got a new A/C and the leak stopped. Had wiring issues in a light fixture. After maintenance came out, he told me the wires were loose, then shoved them back up into the junction box, and as long as I don’t touch the light, it should be okay. 3.Wet dog and hot bologna smell comes from all the vents.
Signed1yearLease. Worse decision of my life.We had so many problems with this complex.The Washer and dryer do not work for any units.My mountain bike stolen from here and it was locked up.While on Vacation someone tried to break into my apartment.The water is shut off once a week for a whole day!! My neighbors brought police over very often because they were always fighting (physically and verbally).Oneday, while on my way to school the whole complex was blocked off with 20+ police cars and helicopters overhead looking for dangerous suspects!! Cops yelled at me to get the heck back inside my apartment asap so I did. Someone was shot and KILLED in the jacuzzi by the gym. Our 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor was infested by cockroaches and we had it sprayed and condemned but they would never go away. Our apartment smelled like cig smoke 24/7 because the of previous tenants and because it was not cleaned well before we moved in. SAVE YOURSELF THE HASSEL AND DO NOT EVER MOVE HERE!!
The complex is in a convenient location. It's quiet because there is no landscape to maintain. There is not any covered parking, the units are old and beat up appliances, laundry room is not maintained and it's unlocked which homeless to go into, dark outside most of the complex, pool is locked more that unlocked, trash all over, and the picnic tables aren't usable. There are a lot of homeless people digging through the dumpsters. They are trying to fix it up. They want to charge like a 3 or 4 star apartment. There is much to change and there will be a long transition before they get to a point of getting market value for each unit, though they still charge prices as a 4 or 5 star complex. These apartments, even the ones in good condition, should only charge 500 a month for a one bedroom because of all the other conditions tenants have to endure. One of the first things the management company should of did is hire a security company. This place is pretty creepy.
Stay away from that place the the guy Mike the manager will freak I never see in my my whole life a complex manager speak with the tenets like this if you work for him or something my wife Sharon that place when I was in Oregon working as a truck driver when I came back I sow the surprise I have to get out of here ASAP
I have left numerous voicemails for maintenance to come fix things never heard back and it's been months. The cabinets are terrible the chipped parts from previous tenants have been painted over with off white paint and if you just so happen to open your cabinet one to many times during your rental period here they will fall off continuously no matter how many times they are fixed, so watch your head and your kids! Before you move in you are showed a beautiful apartment but the one you move in will not I repeat will not look anything like that one besides the cabinets your blinds will be dis colored and all different sizes and some will even be broken but put back up with duct tape holding it up !A lot of robberies here so I had gotten an alarm system but was told that I couldn't have my alarm system sign to warn burglars off up or around my apartment! A alarm system sign is the first warning sign to protect yourself and your family against burglars before they decide to enter your apartment and some one gets hurt or even dies, God forbid! But Finisterra management does not allow you to use such sign to protect you or your family! I have had a maintenance guy sit outside my window at 3am before on his golf cart doing nothing just sitting there right next to my window and at that time I use to crack my window to let a little air flow threw but after seeing him sitting there scared the I don't know what out of me I am a single mom who lives downstairs so you can imagine how unsafe I felt it wasn't until a gentleman walked up and into the next apartment did the maintenance man hurry up and left! Thank god for this individual who scared him away! I wasn't even aware that the maintenance man was even around here at those hours! Well basically please anyone who is thinking about becoming a tenant Think long and hard the rent is way to high for this kind of stuff to be going on the whole apartment complex needs to be re done with new everything for the amount you pay here you can pay some place else with management that cares about their tenants and their safety! It is so much wrong with this place But they said keep the review short and simple. So I kept it as short a I could.I would never ever recommend this place to anyone!! I am scared for I and my families safety so I will not be renewing my lease!
