Very disappointed, this place is not what it could be. Don't be fooled by the last few reviews, PAC Management sent out an email asking residents to write reviews for a chance to win a gift card. You had to show your review to management for a chance to win; obviously, all the reviews were good. Out of all the apartments in Lakewood Ranch this is the best as far as location and the floor plans; however, PAC Management does a poor job in community upkeep. We pay for a high-end community and get a second-rate product.
The landscaping is sparse; when trees and shrubs die, they are removed and never replaced. The pool area landscaping was all removed and replaced by pebbles instead of mulch and ground coverings. Grass is burnt is lots of areas and not treated. Fertilization is non-existent. The only thing that they spend money on is the flowers at the front entrance.
The new "gourmet" coffee machines are a joke (knock-off of a Keurig machine); the coffee is bad quality. Other communities in the area have Starbucks machines or professional coffee services such as Java Butlers. The gates are broken at least once a week, if not more. There used to be key fob access to all the pedestrian gates, but because PAC Management did not want to spend the money to make them work, they changed to normal keys. They still have key fobs to business center and social room, but have not worked for almost a year; they just leave these rooms unlocked 24/7. Used to have gaming consoles in the Social Room and they have all been removed.
They just pressure cleaned all the breezeways causing standing water, which in turn made the hallways look worse than they did before the pressure cleaning. If you are going to perform maintenance work at least do it professionally. Supposedly there is weekly pest control, but it seems to be ineffective as there are hundreds of spiders in the breezeways.
PAC Management does not enforce any of the rules. People leave trash in the hallways on days that trash is
Excellent! Highly Recommended Indeed!

We moved into the Venue in late March and couldn't be happier. The staff deserves a 10. They couldn't be more helpful. The grounds and buildings are kept extremely clean. Our requests have been responded to immediately and we have been welcomed warmly. You also cannot beat the location.
