Me, my boyfriend and our two dogs live here and its absolutely perfect, it fits all of our needs and that includes my dogs. They have a dog park which is perfect because before this I lived in a house with a pretty big back yard so it gives them that feeling back. It has a fun course for them and room to run around!- Apartments.com

Recently my automatic dishwasher broke down. Even on a holiday (MLK Jr. Day), maintenance came by and fixed it. I'm very pleased with that and any other issues the office staff have addressed since I've been living here over these many years. Great upgrade in the community laundromat and the workout room!! I do enjoy living here!- Google User
I moved here from out of state and at first I was skeptical based off the reviews but the price fit my budget and they accept breed restricted dogs which was a plus.The application and moving process was so much easier due to the Ladies in the office. They pretty much helped me the whole way and when I arrived in Colorado I received the same professionalism as I did over the phone and via email. The apartment was cute and cozy and fit my needs. Love the new upgrades to the fitness center- Google Review
5 Star Review: I have lived here with my family for 2 years. We have had an overall good experience. Staff is friendly and willing to answer questions. During the pandemic, my husband lost his job and the office was open and gave me resources to get help. A++ to the staff! I love the location, it's wonderful to be close to everything in Fort Collins, but away from the traffic and the mountains so close are great for us!- Apartments.com Review
