I have lived here since May 2006. I hate the idea of moving and plan on staying here as long as I can. The grounds are beautiful and I love the sound of the fountains in the lake.
The staff has always been courteous and friendly. They knew my name and what apt I lived in after only being here a couple of months. If you are expecting a delivery, and you are not home, they will sign for it in the office and hold it for you.
After reading some of the reviews I have to respond.
Every apt comes with one covered parking spot. There is unassigned uncovered parking for tenants & guests. Tenants are given one guest parking tag. This had to be done due to unauthorized parking taking up space for tenants. There were situations where cars had been abandoned and were an eyesore. Let's face it, some apts. have more than one tenant and each may have a car.
I myself have never had a problem with ants. If I did, I'd buy a can of Raid. Good grief! Pest control comes around on a regular basis. This complex has mature landscaping, it's beautiful. You are going to have ants and spiders just like at any other place with this kind of foliage. It's Mother Nature at her finest.
If I've had a problem, all I have to do is call the office and they take care of it. If it's an emergency, they take care of it the same day.
I have a real problem with those that don't clean up after their pets. There are doggie bag dispensers posted all over the property and there is no excuse for people to not be responsible. Same goes for putting their garbage IN the dumpster!
From time to time, some of the younger crowd can be disrespectful of their neighbors when it comes to noise...like after 10 PM. A call to security usually takes care of that. It is documented and the tenant receives a notice. Once 3 notices are given to a tenant, they are out of here. This is NOT a college party environment and there are no playgrounds for children.
No matter where you live, there is going to be something that you're not going to be real happy about. That's just part of apt life. Most of the people that live here are mature adults that enjoy the amenities Harbor Oaks has to offer. I call it home.
