DO NOT RENT FROM HERE!
Mostly happy, location is convenient and management has been overall helpful once problems were brought to light. There are some problems with the bottom level basement apts however that anyone moving in should be aware of before signing the lease.
Moisture is an ongoing issue along with mold/mildew. You will either need to run a dehumidifier 24/7 during warmer months or deal with musty clothing, mold attacking furniture, and spot treating carpet consistently to keep it under control.
Just had a $200+ heating bill (which is a little ridiculous for primarily one person in an apt complex who's gone most weekends and 10-12 hrs during the working week) in part because the pre-existing A/C unit installed in the wall was poorly insulated at installation. We put an insulating cover on it at the start of winter, then discovered ice running down the wall during this last cold snap from between wall and unit. It's been reported and they're good about taking care of things once they know, but that won't pay the electric bill we ran up before we realized the problem. So check that out beforehand if you're looking at renting one that does have an A/C wall unit.
Other than that, it's been pretty quiet the past year. Would give 4 stars, but the mold is a huge nuisance.
The parking for the buildings on the S.E. corner of the property is terrible. You have 2 buildings fighting over a few parking spots.
Clean, quiet, great value for the price.
It's a very friendly envoirment with a great staff to work with, I've lived here for 4 yrs. with no problems at all.
Situated in the north side of Niles, North Niles Villa is conveniently located to schools, shopping and just minutes from downtown. It is also close to major highways which makes other cities within the Michiana area an easy drive. North Niles Vila is definitely a convenient and comfortable place to live at an affordable price.
