I lived at Vicino on the Lake for a year and I recently moved out. I would not recommend living here. It looks nice on the outside and they do have some decent amenities, but there are many problems within the community that management simply refuses to fix and that they'd rather create repeated excuses for instead. My biggest issue was the A/C. My apartment would hardly get below 80 degrees in the summer months despite submitting numerous maintenance requests, and this ended up costing me hundreds in my monthly electric bill. They only have 2 maintenance men who really arent equipped to handle larger issues. I reached out to management at least 7 times over the course of 1 month, and there was minimal effort put into addressing the issue. They claimed that I should just keep my blinds closed at all times and not utilize my balcony at all. Even with this, my apartment did not cool off at all. This is what ultimately caused me to move out.
They also had a change in property managers in the last year, and it really went downhill from there. At this point, its very clear that resident concerns are not of importance to them. It's rare that anyone from the office will ever actually answer the phone. I can't estimate the number of times I have e-mailed the property manager regarding a concern and I never hear back, requiring me to go to the office myself to get an issue addressed only to find that no one is there. They've had such a high turnover rate of employees that it seems like I am always speaking to someone new and they're hardly ever informed on the most updated policies and procedures.
Ultimately, Vicino on the Lake is a decent looking community, but it's an older property with way too many issues that cause for a very inconvenient living experience. This in addition to management's lack of concern for resident issues as well as their sloppiness prevents me from being able to recommend this property to anyone.
Has the all the amenities and any business you could ever want (besides Wal-Mart) is within 5 miles. Only downside is the internet. Either you're forced to use AT&T or you can't have broadband.
