Read the contract extremely well. They will take every opportunity they can to charge you extra fees (even if it is their fault- fyi: they are incompetent, so it is not rare for it to be their fault). The workers are lazy, disorganized and

I helped my little sister find a studio apartment here. It was her first apartment, and the staff couldn't have been better. \r

They made sure to explain the paperwork to her, and asked if she had questions like a million times. They

I have no idea what the guy whose post is titled WARNING is talking about. Like the person before him said this community is not the place for a party animal, it is pretty laid back and quiet.

It is right across the street from campus to where you can walk to just about anywhere in a max of 15 mins or at least that is how long it takes me to get to McCoy. (On the TRAM route)

The office and maintenance staff are very friendly and helpful. All maintenance issues I have had, or thought I had were addressed right away. The lease is a standard lease that you would sign basically anywhere in TX as it is a TAA lease.

As for my actual apartment you can tell that the buildings are of old architectural design but they have been kept up very well. I love the fact that all the appliances are new and stainless steel as I do a lot of cooking. One drawback for me is that the bathrooms only offer just enough space, and in the floorplan that I live in there isn't as much counterspace that I would like. Other than that no complaints, I will be staying here until I graduate.

The people who wrote the last two reviews are a joke. "It doesn't seem like a party place" Come On...Screams advertising to me. This place is the loudest place in 78666. Forget a nice night sleep, or a quite place to study. Oh ya, that is what the library and class is for, I forgot. The gates are for show, they haven't worked since 2008 or at least that is what red29 said. The wall are paper thin. I would suggest not to move here this place is hell! A "polished POS" is what I heard on person call it. I laughed and though how bad could it be, they are just over reacting. I thought the lease agreement seemed strict, then maybe it won't be so bad. Don't fool yourself, the management would piss on you to put you out if you were on fire. Don't look to them for any help.

I have lived here for close to 2 years now and have had close to no problems. These apartments are older so expect to have a few things that need to be fixed. Our first problem was with our dishwasher and maintenance came right out and then had to order us a new one which came the next day. Our second big problem was with our air conditioner which was fixed the same day. The maintenance staff is very nice and works very hard. There are only two guys but they both work their butts off. I see them picking up trash in the morning to keep the grounds nice and working on apartments in the afternoon.

The complex itself is nice. Tucked away in trees with the feeling of seclusion even though it is actually just across the street from TX State campus. We have never had a problem with noise levels. This complex doesn't seem much like a party complex so if that is what you are looking for I would look elsewhere. When you sign your lease the management will give you a sticker to put on your car. All other cars without this sticker that are not parked in visitor parking WILL be towed. Unfortunately we forgot to tell a friend to park there and he was towed in a very short amount of time. Because they have this rule there is plenty of parking for the residence.

All in all this has been a great college apartment which I plan to stay at until I graduate. I know that no apartment is going to be flawless specially in San Marcos but for me this complex has been very close.

The Timbers are tucked away behind trees at the top of a hill across from campus. Parking is ample. The outside of the complexes look fair to good. The insides are cozy, yet unfurnished, leaving you to explore your own creative abilities. 2 bedroom apartments share 1 bathroom. The cabinets and appliances in the kitchen look dated. The hot tub is drained and not in use, bummer, but the pool is available. The view from this area is absolutely breathtaking!
