I love it here! Friendly office staff, quick maintenance, beautiful grounds, what more can you ask for?
First the good...The grounds are nice and well kept for the most part and they have a beautiful pool area. Also, a fitness center that is kept up nicely. And the small playground area seems to be enjoyed by the kids living here.
But the bad outweighs the good here. The construction of this community makes the noise unbearable. My upstairs neighbors have multiple children there at all times. The kids run and jump and throw things onto the floors from the time they wake up until bedtime on weekends. The noise is incredibly loud. On weeknights it begins at 6pm and continues well into midnight. I work very early in the morning and it makes it close to impossible to get any sleep at all. We brought this to the attention of the leasing agents and manager and we were told that the complaint would be taken care of. Still, as of today, we cannot sleep or even be in our apartment without constant disturbance. Ive lived in apartments for 10 years and never experienced noise like this. We were told to call the courtesy officer, but not until after 10pm, and nothing more was done.
The grills are one of our most used amenities everywhere we live & since we moved here last month the grill has been broken. We brought this to attention of office staff and they said it would be fixed. Still, one month later it is unusable.
Also, they claim to have breed restrictions for breeds deemed dangerous or aggressive here. Being here one week I noticed a Rottweiler above me growling and barking down at me & my dog from a second story balcony. Then, I see a German Shepherd in my building as well. When my husband questioned it to office staff their response was Well, we meet the dog and if it doesnt seem aggressive then we allow it. Not ok with me. Thats not how it was presented to us before move in. They do not enforce the leash policy either.
Stay far away!
I don't think there is anything negative I could even say about this place! The leasing staff is so friendly I have never walked in and not seen them smiling. The grounds are well kept, at one point (about a year ago) I felt like there was too much dog waste but that has completely changed since they've started the Doggie DNA program. This is funny because I see someone commented that they fine $200 if someones dog goes in the grass LOL!! Obviously, thats a good thing!! The maintenance staff is prompt and friendly. I am so glad to call Gran Bay home and look forward to renewing our lease this month.
If you have a pet this is a terrible place to live!!!! Do not move in here, they will charge you $200 every time your doggie poops or pees in the grass.
It's like living in paradise. Such a peaceful community to wake up in every morning.
