I have lived at Tar River Estates for over 2 years, moving from a 1 bedroom to now a 2 bedroom with washer/dryer in both. I love it here! The units are pretty big compared to most places. They allow you to paint, hang pictures and personalize as much as you want as long as you just primer and fill holes beforr moving out. I don't plan on moving for a long time. My husband, big dog and I couldn't be happier with our choice of living here. The dog park is walking distance, which is so awesome. ECU campus is maybe a 10 minute walk, 5 or so blocks. I would and do recommend Tar River Estates to anyone! If anyone has a "bug problem" here, call the office. Doc Moore will spray as much as you want/need. The office staff handles all business professionally. Whatever we need, they do make sure it gets done in a timely fashion. If anyone needs respect and a thank you, the office staff definitely deserves it for all of the jerkoff people whom demand and yell about the most ridiculous stuff. Hopefully all the good reviews can out weigh the bad because this place is 10x better than any other apartment complex in town. Its so quiet and charming with so much to do. The greenway is right behind it to go workout if you don't want to goto Tar River Esates gym. 5 stars! Take a tour and see for yourselves.
