Great Maintenance In Timely Mannersubmitted by Stela G. - |Recommended: YesWe recently had trouble with our dryer and within 5 hours after we have requested, Jose came and fixed our problem. It was great and we are happy with the overall result and how responsible the maintenance is. Thank you

Pleasant experiencesubmitted by Stela G. - |Recommended: YesMy daughter and I have lived here since Aug 2018. I am writing this review to express our appreciation for the building manager Ms. Harmon. She is a very good manager and takes great care of all common facilities. She is always receptive to residents' suggestions and tries her best to adopt them. We love this place that we proudly call home.

Clean, safe apartments. Very family friendlysubmitted by Roz S. - |Recommended: YesApartments are a better size, the building cleaner and better quality, than you will find for this price in most of Fairfax. The walls are a bit thin, but I don't find my neighbors to be any louder than at other apartment complexes. Some of the building materials don't seem to be super high quality, but again, the building is a lot nicer than anything else I'd seen in this price range in Fairfax. Staff is friendly and responsive. My teen forgot his key and was locked out a few times, and the office was kind enough to unlock out apartment so he could get back in. The application process does take a long time- but they have a lot of regulations to comply with, so that's understandable. It's best to plan ahead and have some flexibility with your move-in date if you are hoping to live here. I have had no issues with my or my guest's car being towed or broken into. I park both in the parking lot and in the garage. I feel very safe here. Also- I have not encountered any cockroaches here I was begining to think that roaches went hand-in-hand with apartment living, but have been pleasantly surprised to find that roaches have not been an issue here.
response from property -Hi Roz, Thank you so very much for such a positive review and for sharing your experience with our community and team. We are happy to hear that you love living here! Our team truly values and appreciates your feedback. Please do not hesitate to let us know if we can be of more service. Sincerely, Ashleigh N.
Neighbors too noisysubmitted by Jacinta F. - |Recommended: YesI love living here, however, the residents above move are very loud and noisy. It sounds like they are throwing and or moving furniture and running in the apartment. These activities frequently occur late at night and disturb my sleep, making the following day at work very difficult. .
response from property -Hi Jacinta, Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns and allowing us the opportunity to respond. We understand that noise from neighboring apartments can be a nuisance and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Currently we do not have a record of any active noise complaints. We ask that our residents report disturbances like these to management right away so that they can be addressed as soon as possible. Our Property Manager has reached out to you to discuss this issue in more detail and we hope that moving forward you will not have the same experience. Sincerely, Ashleigh N.

Very unprofessional and rudesubmitted by Kylie P. - |Recommended: NoThe apartments are beautiful but the rules are just ridiculous. I got 21 questions asked when I was driving my moms car for 6 days and needed a parking pass extension while my car was in the shop. You cannot bring guests to the pool - not even ONE. The staff has always been so rude and take over 48 hours to return emails. I would not recommend living here. Also I had neighbors that would constantly forget their key fob and pound on the door repeatedly for someone to come let them in. The facilities staff does work very hard though - I give them a 5 5 rating. But honestly - it was not worth me staying another month. It's worth the extra money elsewhere for freedom.
response from property -Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with us. As our community is apart of the Fairfax Affordable Housing Program our team is required to ask a number of questions to ensure that all residents are abiding by the program. We recognize that this can be an inconvenience at times and sincerely apologize. Currently we do not allow guests at the pool in an effort to ensure that all residents are able to enjoy the amenity space. This might be revisited at a later date, but is really in place to benefit residents and encourage access to amenities. If you are having any issues with your neighbors, we encourage you to reach out to our team so that we can address concerns in a timely fashion. Please reach out to our Property Manager at 703-865-0100, she looks forward to speaking with you soon. Sincerely, Taryn S.
Great Living Spacesubmitted by Kandace W. - |Recommended: YesIt's a great starter apartment for young professionals, retiring individuals, and families. The space is beautiful and there's plenty access to all amenities provided. I'd recommend this complex to anyone.

OKAYsubmitted by Luis S. - |Recommended: NoApartment is in great location but overall friendliness of staff and issues with the gate have made it not best
response from property -Thank you for your review. We apologize for the delay in our response.

Beautiful housing in the heart of Fairfax submitted by La S. - |Recommended: YesI love living here. I appreciate that the needs of the community are the priority. The staff, particularly Magaly, have been a wonder to work with. The building is as quiet as you could expect from an apartment building, and I love that as a resident I am always able to find parking in the garage. The location is central to a great school district, variety of grocery stores and entertainment, and the highway is easily accessible. I feel safe here and it has been such a blessing to find affordable housing in the heart of Fairfax.
