What Our Residents Have to Say

4.1 rating | based on 389 reviews

I’m giving 5 stars because of the maintenance and front office staff. In my two plus years of living here all of them have always been friendly and helpful.



I lived here three years ago. I know how important it is to have good management at properties, and this has been my recent positive experience with them.



The staff is friendly and kind. The price is very reasonable compared to other apartments in the area.



I went to look at apartments while touring UNCW, and I left feeling so happy and excited! The vibes felt very homey and laid back and I felt like I could relax while touring the apartments and talking with the staff.



I toured not too long ago and the location is perfect for anyone. It’s only minutes from UNCW, walking distance to some great bars and restaurants and seconds away from any kind of store needed.
