Positive Apartment Reviews and RatingsWe Enjoyed Living at Village on Main ( over a year ago )
Reviewed by: Anonymous
My wife and I lived at the Village on Main Street Apartments for 2 years when we were first married. I find it unfortunate that the only people who write reviews seem to be those who had a bad experience. I think our personal experience is more akin to what others have experienced at the Village on Main. After reading the other reviews on this complex I feel like I have to share our experience.
1. We lived on the second floor over Skills Fitness while it was being built. There were a few mornings that it woke us up and we spoke with management about it. They were very kind and helped us remedy the problem. After the gym opened, we only heard sound if we turned out TV all the way down. It was very reasonable for us.
2. We also had an issue with our dishwasher leaving hard water deposits on our dishes. However this is a problem with the hard water in Bountiful City and is not just the Village on Main Apartments. Management did suggest adding a little vinegar to the dishwasher and our dishes started coming out spotless. Personally, I don’t think this was unreasonable at all. At one point we did have to call maintenance to unclog our shower heads as they were spraying everywhere due to hard water. It was fixed within 24 hours.
3. We liked the interior hallways, but it did make hauling things in a bit tricky. The office has moving carts that you can borrow though and that helped a lot. As far as sound goes, yes the hallways are noisy in the evenings. We didn’t mind though. It’s not like we were hanging out there. I consider the inside hallways as a major perk seeing as out A/C and heating costs were very low and it added security.
4. The A/C and heating is loud. I won’t argue that. We just ended up turning up our TV when it kicked on. None of our neighbors ever complained about our noise so it wasn’t an issue.
5. I think my favorite thing about the building is that it was always clean. I’ve lived in dirty apartments before and this was not one of them. I think most people that live there have respect for their home and choose to take care of it. There are people who don’t, but you’ll find people like that everywhere. It’s not managements fault in my opinion.
6. One of the best parts of Village on Main was that we met a lot of really nice people living there that we are still friends with. Hanging out at the pool is a great way to meet people. We spent a lot of evenings and weekends hanging out and socializing with our neighbors.
7. There are two sides to the building. One side is for seniors only. They have an indoor pool that non-senior tenants can’t use. I wish that wasn’t the rule, but I understand.
8. When we moved in, we had to sign up for TV and internet through Qwest/DirecTV. I wish we could have chosen Comcast. They ended up getting Comcast before we moved out which was a bummer. However, we had no problems with our service. The TV did go out once when there was a snow storm.
Overall, I suggest this complex to my family and friends all the time. The only reason we moved out was the buy a home. These are apartments. They are not $3,000 a month custom condos. They are not virtually silent. (Which most people wouldn’t expect.) We feel that we were treated fairly, had maintenance requests handled efficiently, and got what we paid for.

Look-- They are apartments folks. I don't expect complete silence or pristine conditions. I can appreciate the other reviews, but I've had a very good experience here. The place is safe and well kept. I've had nothing but good experiences with the office and maintenance staff. Everything in my apartment works very well and the carpets and tile in the kitchen are above average for apartments. Having an elevator to move into the third floor and haul groceries, etc. is awesome. Noise--not a problem for me. I rarely hear my neighbors and only occasionally hear outside noises (see below) That might be because of where my unit is located, however. I have a friend that lives around families and she hears them. You also hear what's going on in apartments when you're walking down the halls, but it's not a big deal (you don't live in the hallway). I noticed other reviewers complained about the loud AC. They are right. It is a little noisy, but I honestly never noticed it until I read the review.
Ok, here are my problems (none of which were serious enough to make me want to leave):
1. This is mixed residential/commercial property. I have to keep my windows closed until 10:00 when the Arctic Circle across the parking lot closes or I hear everything from the drive up speakers. I can't hear it with the windows closed. I also occasionally hear their delivery trucks very early in the mornings.
2. Parking-- you can't use any of the parking places in front of the commercial properties. However, my guests have never had trouble finding a parking spot. It just means they have to walk an additional 50 yards to the building.
3. Ok--the hard water really is an issue others mentioned that I agree with. It's difficult to keep the chrome clean (I finally gave up). Well, it's "clean" but stained. I also get hard water spots on my dishes. I use jet dry in the dishwasher and that helps a lot. You will need to use lime/scale remover on faucets on occasion to remove build up--but it hasn't been that bad for me. They should really invest in a better quality water softening system.
Storage-- the apartment has less storage than others I have rented, but there are really nice storage shelves in the bathrooms.
Laundry closet-- Not built for front load washers! Mine fits, but I can't open the little drawers for detergent/bleach/softener very far. I've made it work without any problems though. Just a little annoyance.
I've been happy here.
