Watergate Pointe is a waterfront apartment community and marina located on Back Creek in what the locals affectionately refer to as The Republic of Eastport in Annapolis, Maryland. Yes, this is the eclectic, fun side of town, so batten down the hatches and get ready for the good life. Submerse yourself in the history and charm of Annapolis while you bask in the serenity of your fully renovated one, two or three bedroom apartment including unmatched community amenities. Theres simply nothing like waterfront living at Watergate Pointe. From the residents yacht club and private marina to the olympic-size pool and sun deck, its truly water, water everywhere.
Classic example of bait and switch pricing. They also tried to continue charging me rent after I moved out. I got the BBB involved to make it stop. Do not live here.
Lies, Turmoil, and Games
Finally, after weeks and weeks of no resolution we are done dealing with the Watergate property in Annapolis. We took a loss in our deposit after realizing there is no empathy or understanding from that property. In reality, they did whatever they could to keep it.
I was moving to Annapolis in the month of November. The property had everything we were looking for and after several conversations we were told that the apartment that we wanted during our move in time was no longer available on that date. Cool. Thanks for the notice.
We literally were driving down from Towson to look at apartments in Annapolis on a Friday when we get a call from one of the Leasing Agent stating that the particular apartment we wanted that wasn't available anymore is NOW once again available for us to move in at the desired date. We gave him the required deposit to hold the apartment which including the waiving of application/administrative fees. We called off the search.
Then Monday when I was following up on the status, I was told that apartment renovations have been completed ahead of schedule and that the apartment is available now. The longest they could hold it would be 2 weeks, which is half a month before our lease ends at our Towson Apartment. We could not afford to pay for 2 apartments at the same time. They then offered to hold it until our desired move in date but we would lose the discounts & waived fees.
After several calls between the Leasing Agent and other contacts who promised us an apartment would be available but then it clearly wasn't available for our move in dates, we lost a whole month of apartment shopping. My biggest fear was that we would not have a place to live and have our items on the street at this rate. We luckily found a place & our goal was to get our deposit back. My husband called and was told that I was a liar. It was our fault that we did not have the apartment promised to us. I would have never put down a deposit.
