Rated 5 out of 5?by JefP One of the Best!
The ladies in the front office are knowledgeable, friendly and go out of their way to assist. They plan activities for the complex, year round. The grounds are impeccable. Safety is excellent; several active and retired police and sheriff officers live onsite. Maintenance is by far the best I have ever experienced. An example of this: Three summers ago, we had a serious heat wave. I was released from the hospital after having surgery and an hour after I got home, the air conditioning quit. After hours, maintenance showed up and determined it couldn't be fixed that night, as it needed a new part. Instead of telling us to "tough it out or go to a hotel", the maintenance man made a phone call and asked that we give him a few minutes and he would be right back. Ten minutes later in came back and said that he was moving us over to the apartment that management uses to "show" until they could get the air conditioner fix. He had gone over to put sheets on the bed. I don't know of any other apartment complex that would have done that. The gym is kept clean and up-to-date. Pool is always clean and this year is going to saltwater. For those griping about the noise - you live in an apartment! If you don't like the noise, move to a single home. As far as the bike situation, it had become as safety hazard and a problem with bikes being left out and stolen. As far as grills, it is a state law - get an inside grill! As far as maintenance, if you have a filthy apartment or are doing something that is against your lease, it is maintenance personnel's responsibility to report it. In other words, if you are doing your part and being a good tenant and neighbor, you will have a wonderful time living here!

On the surface, this looks like a really nice place to live. They have the most open floor plans in Bossier City/Shreveport, as most of the floor plans in apartments around here make a total waste of the square footage in apartments.
Noise - If you live in a floor level apartment, you will hear every foot step of your neighbors above. If your neighbor talks on their cell phone in their bedroom at 1am as mine does nightly, you will hear 99% of their conversation. There is ZERO type of noise reduction build into these apartments. I would be shocked if the walls separating apartments were anything more than just the drywall. In this alone, you have the potential to get the worse sleep of your life while you live here. Unsatisfactory.
Rent - Your rent will be raised when you go to renew your contract. My last two apartments I had in different towns the rent never changed for the years I lived there. First renewal here and my rent went up.
Storage - You are not allowed to grill on the screened in patios. However, if you leave a grill outside underneath the stair well, they will tag it and claim they will throw it away. A lot of the kids around here park their bicycles underneath the stairwells and it bothers not a single person. I think it is really cool that so many of the kids ride their bikes so much. Yet the management will tag 20 kids bikes saying they will be thrown away if not moved in the next 48 hours. Are you kidding me? They bother no one, and if outside, they don't mess up the carpet in the apartments. This is probably the dumbest thing I've ever seen, and it is highly aggravating to think they would even threaten to throw away a bunch of bikes that belong to responsible kids that like to be outside.
Do not live here.
