I would AVOID these apartments AT ALL COST!\n\nWhen we first moved into this complex, we were pretty pleased. We loved the (fairly large) balcony, the walk-in closets, having two bathrooms, etc. There were some issues with a small section of baseboard falling off of the wall, and a couple other minor issues that were repaired (the drywall where the baseboard had detached was actually rotted and they glued the trim back onto the rotten area instead of patching the wall and fixing it properly). \n\nHowever, after a month or so, things started to deteriorate. We began to notice roaches; a lot of them and their feces in every room of the apartment. When we spoke to the exterminator, he said that it had nothing to do with us and our cleanliness, but that they were coming up through the walls from downstairs. Later into our tenancy, we began to notice mold and mildew along the ceilings and tops of the walls in the kitchen and living room. In one bedroom, it was located along the exterior wall at the top and bottom, the ceiling, and extending down onto the carpet. In the other bedroom, it was mainly in one corner along the exterior wall and around the window frame. It was also in both bathrooms, on the ceilings, walls, and baseboards. When we brought the problem to the landlord's attention, we were told they could not fix the problem and that we had to ""deal with it."" We have family members who lived in another unit in another building who had similar roach and mold/mildew problems, with no solutions provided. \n\nThere was not much noise when we first moved in, but over time, more and more noisy neighbors moved in. People ran back and front on the balcony outside the apartment, which actually shook the entire building. There were many noisy parties and a lot of banging on walls and floors. People did not watch their children, who played in the parking lots and on the walkways in front of the apartments, which led to more disruption. \n\nThere was no dumpster located within a decent distance of our apartment, which meant that every time the trash needed to be taken out, we had to load it into the car and drive to another section of the complex (parking lots are not connected and there were no trash receptacles in our lot). \n\nThere were no adequate areas to walk our dog near the apartment, so we had to take him down the sidewalk, around a fence, and into a lot owned by Cedar Cove in order for him to relieve himself. \n\nParking was horrible: people frequently had company and there were no guest parking areas, which led to my husband (who works evenings) having to park in another lot of the complex and having to walk back to our apartment. Parking was not enforced. At one point, a large tree limb actually fell on my husband's and a neighbor's car. There was no offer to find us after the fact and no offer to pay for the damage caused.\n\nAfter we moved out (as soon as the lease was up) we didn't hear anything from Cedar Cove until 46 days after the lease had officially expired. We then received a letter with itemized charges that totaled over $2,100. The items we have been charged for included replacement of carpet for $1,800, painting for $400, cleaning for over $200, etc, with our deposits deducted from the charges. All of these are completely bogus and we plan on taking the issue to court if we cannot resolve it any other way. \n\nBase rent was $530, plus a $30 fee per month for washer/dryer rental, and $25 per month for ""pet rent"" on top of our $150 pet deposit. Our security deposit was $200 and based on credit.
