    Talk about bad management (specially the property manger). Never recommend this place to anyone. Look where else.

    I have lived here since October and I love it. I live in the pipeline. I had a roommate but she moved out. They just built a kitchen so now I can use a stove!

    There is no privacy. The maintenance and cleaning team would enter any time. They'd just knock once. I went on vacation and found my xbox full of water from the ac and in a different position. They didn't cover any of it, instead, told me it was my fault. In addition, the place is really small for the price.
