I have lived in Durham Woods for a few months now and I like the community in general. On the other hand, while the complex is spending so much money manicuring the roads and the grass, basically what visitors see at first, they have many dirty little secrets. One of them is the laundry rooms. The laundry room not only are disgusting because some of the residents don't clean after themselves but also the staff does not clean them for months at a time! The machines are outdated and break all the time and leave pools of soapy water in the middle of the room every now and then. The water stays there and no one cleans it. The floors are dirty all the time and even the machine interiors are filthy! I have send them a comment about it but nothing has been done, no one even got back to me on that. (Oh and by the way, when you raise a concern, no one gets back to you in a timely manner or at all ). So now, I go to public laundromats outside the complex, which are 100% cleaner. Overall the apartments need desperately to be renovated: the appliances are outdated so they do break every now and then. The windows are not properly insulated so the electricity bill can go pretty high during winter or when it is very hot out. I give it a 3 star rate because of the location and the quietness... and the manicured grass...
I have searched for many properties for months in Union and Middlesex counties. I decided on Durham Woods. I previously lived nearby and my family and I were very happy with the neighborhood, location and people. The service is excellent in the leasing office and maintenance. I would recommend it to all individuals and families. I have lived in two homes and three apartments and I feel at home in Durham Woods.
Wonderful Community and clean. Apartments are big and spacious. Maintenance responds in a day or two and they are knowledgeable. Snow is moved same day and my experience here for the last 2 months is great
Worst place I've ever lived in. Came with an ant infestation ( apparently we're living near a swamp or something and they're native to the area) and an exterminator had to come more than once, and they're still here a year later. My family aren't dirty people earlier, and we've never had any issues with bugs before living here. Everything here looks cheap too. The balcony door handle fell off 3 times, the metal rack where you put your towels fell off, along with a door knob since we've been here. The maintence workers also come in without announcement, even if you've told them not to several times. The air conditioner is also too loud, and the walls are also too thin. I would not recommend living here
Eventhough apartment was in renewated condition when I moved in , the appliances and kitchen closets and bathroom fittings are very bad / low / cheap quality. I cant believe in 2016 I am using such bad appliances. Kitchen closets broke twice.Very bad insulation. Bad quality windows. I am paying so much for the worst laundry service I have ever seen. Please take action
