Moved in about 8 months ago and I don't think I have any complaints. I am considered the "young professional" demographic. My apartment was brand new when I moved in, decent size, and we were offered a special on sign-on. The staff in the office is respectful and helpful- and this is hard to come by in regard to my last rental.
Yes, some of the "amenities" have since been discontinued but those were "bagels and coffee on Sunday from Panera" and "yoga classes" and we were told they were cancelled because there was not enough participation- seems like a reasonable excuse. The yoga room is still there for all to enjoy and i don't really care for bagels anyway. However, after the hurricane they did remove the cabanas at the pool, I LOVED THE CABANAS, bring them back!!! Other than that everything is great. It is clean, the grounds are beautiful, and I have had no issues parking since the new arrangement.
I am second floor so upstairs can be a tad noisy (heals, dogs running around, light noise) but nothing I would ever complain about. I think you find this in every complex. If you don't want noise... go rent a house?
The pool could use some security mods. Not to limit guests per resident, but to actually secure the gate. I have been there a few times and I am 100% sure the groups that are there do not live on the property. Also, again, BRING THE CABANAS BACK!! please :).
I can honestly say that in my building I have no complaints about my neighbors. We do regular anthropologic tasks that may cause noise but it is never anything excessive. Yes, they guy downstairs vacuums his car every other day and it is noisy but good for him, I like a clean car too. The couple down the hall has a dog that barks intermittently but dogs bark, so what. And YES, us young whipper-snappers do take advantage of the limited night life we have in the area and come home around 2AM. You do live in a college town now. Gone are the days South Fort Myers/ Estero are retirement->>
On the outside, looks great - right? Recently Estero Oaks has started allowing co-signers. They are turning this place into student housing. Many of the amenities are gone. Students (non-residents) routinely are coming on property and using the pool, smoking and in the gym.
Security gates are still not up. Events on property with no security checks and open to the public.
The sign in the rental office -- "pick your roommates and pick your payment".
Too bad -- the place had potential.
