My wife and I have lived her for almost two years. If I didnât get a promotion taking me across the country we would have stayed for a third.
The apartments are in a great location. A few minutes from both the 215 and 95. A few minutes from the galleria mall. I can get to the strip in less than 35 minutes during rush hour. 25 minutes to be parked at UNLV. An abundance of places to shop and eat nearby. This is a really safe area too. We didnât have any issues with theft, or shady people hanging out.
The units are nice. All stainless steel finishes and nice faux granite countertops in kitchen and bathrooms. A huge plus is the nest thermostat and HUE lighting. All the bedrooms are a good size and the master tub in our unit was a soaking tub which my wife loved. It is allegedly non-smoking though the people below us smoke on their patio every now and then. Generally, we can keep our window open on the 3rd floor with no smoke smells.
Most of the people here have pets. The office has a little pet station and a few areas to take the dogs. During non-summer months we walked our dog to the park around the corner (about 7 minute walk). They have tons of doggie bag stations and trash cans to clean up after the dog. They also do a really solid job of keeping the grounds clean. I feel like they do a clean sweep of the apartment every weekday.
We only had one major maintenance issue. Our A/C went out in the dead of summer. They quickly brought us a portable A/C unit and offered to bring one for each room. They fixed the A/C then it broke again a week later, which wasnât very convenient. That being said, they again brought us the portable unit and they got someone out a few days later to fix it. No problems since. That stuff happens and itâs not the managementâs fault. How they responded to those issues is key and they responded great. Other small requests like changing lights, filters, etc all handled promptly.
The first year we lived hear our apartment was silent. We NEVER heard our neighbors. Recently someone had a baby and we can hear it cry through the walls. Also, as mentioned there is a dog that barks all night sometimes, but thatâs a consequence of living in a dog friendly neighborhood. Generally, itâs pretty quiet. Iâm a light sleeper and itâs rarely too loud for me to sleep.
I have heard that parking can be an issue and for some reason a lot of people park on Quest Park St. but there are easily 50 parking spaces in the east end of the apartment available on any given night. I have heard the west half of the apartments have less parking. Something to keep in mind if you have options available in either side.
One con that didnât impact me was the noise at the pool. I walk my dog at 10 ish every night and there are almost always people in the pool area. Holiday weekend, people up and loud until midnight. I couldnât live by the pool, but that just might be me being particular about noise.
The theater and clubhouse are great. My wife and I used the clubhouse for a rehearsal dinner and rented the theater for the super bowl, Stanley cup, and to have movie night with our friends. Team in the clubhouse is incredibly accommodating. Ebony and Grace are awesome. Always answer questions (even silly ones) with a smile. They try their damndest to organize community events though turnout is low.
Overall, I am sad to be leaving this apartment. My wife and I have both lived separately all over town before moving in together. I can say this is the best overall place Iâve lived since I was 18.
