Mt. Vernon is an excellent place to live in Gainesville. The office and maintenance staff go above and beyond with everything. The maintenance is always very prompt, and they do a great job. It's also a really cute place to live, and the location is great! The only drawback about living in Mt. Vernon is that they do not have washers and dryers in each apartment, but I haven't really found this to be an issue as there is an on property laundry area.
The management and staff were very amicable. If ever anything was wrong they would go out of their way to help out. If ever something broke or wasn't working properly, you could rest assured that maintenance would be there ASAP to fix the problem. I was high satisfied living at Mount Vernon and couldn't have had a more pleasant experience. I really loved it there. Everyone was so friendly and legitimately wanted my experience their to be great. I don't know what more one could ask for.
I loved the Management Staff at Mount Vernon; actually loved all of the staff. Everyone was so friendly and responsive to concerns; definitely went above and beyond for customer satisfaction! The apartment is well maintained and extremely comfortable and quiet. Love this place!!
For the first two years, it was good. But when I decided to find a new place to live, the service declined greatly. Staff became rigid and rude.
Pros and cons of Mt. Vernon.
Easy access to laundering and to the pool.
Adequate, and well maintained, parking space.
Fast work order completion.
Large area per rent amount.
Pest problem, primarily ants.
Work orders were sometimes shoddy, like a faucet fixed with an epoxy instead of being replaced, ot a subpar water heating unit installed.
The hallways outside the apartments are often hot and poorly ventilated.
Overall it was a decent experience. 4/5.
