I just moved from Ohio and I have lived in varela for 2.5 months now and it has been nothing but amazing! I read the negative reviews and i am baffled they had the experience they did. I searched 7 different properties around the Westshore area and Varela is by far the best!
Location - Perfect. Raymond James stadium 2 miles away. Down the street and quick drive to target, Walmart, chipotle, Starbucks etc.
Staff - When i first moved in, Sam showed me around and was upfront and honest about all fees and monthly payments and lease info and made an exception and moved me in the very next day! Kamillah and Nikki are extremely accommodated whenever i have any requests and super friendly doing so. Lindsay is best property manager i have ever had. She is so considerate and thoughtful with all that she does for us residents.The staff is what really makes this place the best compared to the others Ive visited in Tampa.
Facilities - I dont have to pay for a membership anywhere to workout because they have everything here. Weight room, fitness room, massage room (misuse on site), pelotn cyling bikes, two outdoor pools, indoor hot tub and resistant pool, who has a resistant pool?! Crazy! Open use for kitchen, pool table, free tanning, the list goes on!
Pictures - When i search for an apartment, i always expect that the pictures on the website are way better than the actual apartment complex. Not true here, all the pictures are completely accurate and a well representation of the rooms and facilities at Varela.
Parking - Free parking in a gated garage. Free guest parking.
Residents - Diverse group of people from all different backgrounds. Nice and friendly.
Dogs - Extremely dog friendly with a huge dog park.
Above and Beyond - Dry cleaning services, trash accommodation, and hosting residents. We had a potluck a few weeks ago, in the next couple weeks we have a holiday party, young professionals mixer, wine not Wednesday, passing out free Chick Fil A at 630am!

Great management. Alyssa and Kamilah are wonderful and do a great job. Organized and helpful! I miss Nolan for my packages and conversations. I have lived here since 2015, and it is the perfect location to TIA since I travel quite frequently. This is the ideal spot and location for travlers!

My wife and I have lived here for years, and we love living here. It's crazy to see all the negative reviews with complaints about noise and the staff. Living in an apartment, noise is expected. Knowing this, the tenant should be proactive and not live directed underneath someone. The staff can't control how loud someone stomps or children running around so you can't blame the leasing office because you didn't use common sense.

The staff here are super friendly and professional. I've never encountered the staff being rude. I treat them with respect, and they treat me the same.

Varela Apartments has some of the best amenities in any apartment faculty in the area. I've compared every single apartments in the area and we have the best options for health and wellness.

I've seen a lot of improvements over the years, and I'm very pleased to be part of the community. No apartment complex is going to be perfect no matter where you live, you have to decide what's best for you. I love Varela apartments because we get a bigger than average modern square footage apartment with great staff and the best amenities for a lot less than apartments in the area including Channelside and downtown.

First off I would like to say DO NOT LIVE HERE!!! I have already been here for a few months and I cannot wait for my lease to end.

Whatever you do, do not live in this disgusting, sleazeball run apartment.

In terms of carpet, I hope you like stains, because the carpets in the hallway will most likely have a bunch! The carpets are supposedly cleaned however the stains are only hiding in the pad, waiting for your feet to walk over them before they pop up. The stains are mostly dog poop, and there are many. Enjoy!

This complex should be considered Dog Poop heaven because it is literally everywhere in the hallways.

However, before you sign a lease you will find the most polite, friendly and helpful people. After you sign a lease you will find the rudest, least helpful, lying and rude group of people imaginable. I, like the others here actually DREADED having to deal with them.

This place has paper thin walls like hearing F-18's cutting through your phone calls? Like hearing every toilet flush, every baby cry, and dozens of children screaming? This place is perfect for you.

DO NOT RENT HERE!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!
