Please take the time to read this, trust me, its worth it.

At first glance, when you drive through the community it looks nice, well-maintained, and relatively new. But looks can be deceiving.

They are 20-30 years old depending on which phase you live in, and they are not cheap. We payed extra to have one of the renovated apartments, but the age was still a huge factor. Upon moving in our water system smelled like rotten eggs...really rotten eggs, not just a minor whiff. When we reported it to the management, they treated us as if we were crazy or high maintenance. My husband is from FL, so he is accustomed to water having a slight odor, but this was BAD. A couple of months later our water heater busted and we found that it was full of a nasty build-up that was the origin of the smell...and it had permeated the pipes, so even after changing the water heater the water still stinks. We shower and wash our clothes under the faint odor of rotten eggs. And thats just a minor issue...

The "gated community" is a joke. They provide a community code to all residents that they can give out to whomever they please, providing access without swiping a card or contacting a resident, leaving no record whatsoever. We get solicitation flyers on our door atleat once a week--NO SECURITY. Our truck was robbed and vandalized, costing us over $500 for our insurance deductible. When we called the Wildwood office to let them know, they weren't even considerate enough to be sympathetic, essentially they just said "thjese things happean" as if we should have expected that. Also, half of the time the gates don't work properly because the system gets frozen. To add a little further frustration, they put a speed bump right in front of the gate??? If you don't haul it over the speed bump the swing arm closes on your car. Its the little things you don't notice on your first visit that become more frustrating as time goes on.

If you notice any repairs that need to be done on an apt you're considerering, make sure they are completed BEFORE you move in or you'll never hear from them again. We had laundry doors that were not only mis-matched, but completely broken so that you had to heave on them to get them to open. The grout in our shower was dirty and slimy. Once we started to actually use the shower it began to peel off in grimy strips. It took 9 months of periodic verbal request before we put it in writing so they HAD to fix it. Our electricity would short out everytime I ran the blowdryer or micriwave for more than 2 minutes. It took them over a month of verbal requests before, again, I put it in writing and they eventually sent an electrician. Then the electrician left 4 large holes in our ceiling/walls that it took another 8 months to get them to finally come fix--again, once we made multiple complaints in writing. Our a/c had a leak, after it was fixed the carpet guys came out and ripped up our carpet to remove the padding...then never came back to replace it. Again, another month, another written request, finally fixed. Their team is apathetic and negligent, strongly advise against living here.

Oh, and FYI, if they fail to hold up their end of the deal, thier lease specifies that you cannot take any legal action towards them or involve an attorney to assist in the early termination of your lease. I can't believe we actually signed this...lesson learned--READ THE FINE PRINT.

I lived at Wildwood Ridge for 1 year and I loved it. I had a really nice apartment for an above average price. But living across the street from the office, that makes up for it with gas prices. The only thing I did not enjoy about this place was that my apt was right above the pool and a few nights during the summer people would stay at the pool and be loud.

I also was not in the "gated" part of the community, but had to go through the "gate" to get my mail. That was odd, but never worried about break-ins. If I had to guesstimate, there were maybe 1 or 2 break-ins during the entire year. Compared to where I live now (Overlook at Lindbergh in Buckead), that is great (we get notices almost weekly).

I would definitely recommend this place. If it wasn't for my fiance wanting to live more in the city, we would've stayed. She now regrets it and we would live there again if we weren't looking for a house.

These apartments can be a really nice place to live, IF (and only if) you really like to party. Every Friday, Saturday, and sometimes Sunday nights, one of our neighbors was always just obnoxiously loud. By the end of our stay, I would call the cops every weekend around 2am. Also, when moving in, the complex had a strict no pets policy. The neighbor right next to my unit had a little puppy dog, that would bark day and night. Going to the manager, I was told it would be taken care of, but nothing happened by the time I moved out.
