I moved in here thinking that this was a nice little quaint place with a lovely view of the woods, enough lawn for my son to play in. In the first year my apt was almost burned down by my drunken neighbor who fell asleep while smoking, the new neighbor grows and smokes an abundance of pot. I've had my sink fixed 7 times in the past 3 months for the same issue...now awaiting for them to come for the 8th time. My closet doors are still broken, I've called and left messages, the closet doors they refuse to fix. I was told by a maintenance man, they will replace/fix the doors, once I move out, until then, I'm to deal w/them hanging ajar. The walls are so thin here I can hear my neighbors doing their everyday menial chores, the ones that in any other apartment, you would not be able to hear w/proper insulation. I tried to get out of my lease early, which to be honest, I wasn't surprised when they said no, even though I requested that or to move to a different apartment to avoid the pot smokers downstairs who, when they smoke, MY apartment gets smokey as well and reeks of marijuana. Police intervention is now being obtained as they refuse to investigate or call me back. Apparently, the women that handles this is always away from her desk and never returns my calls. There is no security here, I've already had my apartment broken into, luckily, my husband woke up and it scared them away otherwise I'm not sure how that would've turned out. I thought this would be a wonderful place to live, the view is still wonderful, I see plenty of deer, but between management and the abundance of druggies, alcoholics and other that live here its truly not worth the view.

I'm not sure just where the other locations are, which are mentioned in the other reviews, but I certainly have no such complaints about Ranch Village, in Parma Heights. It's clean, quiet and I've never had an issue with getting any service requests addressed right away. They even take the time to call and ask if there is anything they could do. The rent is reasonable and I don't see myself needing to look for anything new. Any large complex will have its issues, but I havent experienced anything that would be cause for any concern. The windows can be a bit drafty, during the colder Winter months, but the heating bill doesn't really reflect that. In my five years there, my neighbors have changed several times, in each apartment around me, and there haven't been any problems yet. The smaller buildings help keep things a bit more private and the location, near the park, makes for a nice wooded setting. I would recommend it to anyone.

If you are looking to live someplace to get you out of your cardboard box on the corner of Broadview and Pearl, I'd suggest you hang tight and avoid Goudreau Management like the plague. Anyone with kids, elderly parents, pets, morals, etc. would have better chance of survival if they were being hunted by the mob. This hidden away community has its share of criminal activity. One of the leasing agents told me while I was filling out my application to "check 'no' to the felony question" (even though I have a spotless record) otherwise, they would do a background check. Apparently, they only do background checks on people who openly admit that they are felons. There are drug busts there daily along with numerous break-ins and theft, loud music and parties constantly, broken water pipes in the winter, terrible insulation, vandilism, etc. There was a woman a few winters back that slipped on the ice because Goudreau Management was "cutting back" and refused to salt the sidewalk. She broke her ankle, and they claimed they were not responsible. The response time and actions taken on problems is slow and slim, to say the least. Yes, rent might seem inexpensive, but for the space you get alone, it isn't worth a penny- thin walls, small kitchens, half a stove/oven, no dishwasher or air conditioning, metal doors, poor security/locks, small rooms, no closets in bedrooms, terribly unupdated and out of the times, leaking windows, leaking ceilings/roofs, should I go on? Think twice before you risk your life at this rickety shack.

There have been too many incidents in the apartments that are owned by Goudreau Management. I have known three families that have lived at more than one location, and incidents have happened with all of them and with others that never make the news. The buildings are not secure, and anyone can walk in off the street. I have heard that many years ago a teacher was murdered there. The parking lots are also not secure and vehicles are frequently broken into. Background checks are not done on all of those who live there, and you don't know what's moving in next to you. Nothing ever gets done to improve this situation nd this has been going on for decades. I would never live there and it is a blight in the neighborhood to those who own homes around these apartments. Goudreau Management can be considered borderline if not actual slum lords.
