Heatherwood House at Port Jefferson is located in the charming residential neighborhood of Port Jefferson Station and is within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Route 112 and route 347 are located minutes away, for easy access to all major Long Island roadways and just a short drive to Stony Brook University and the seaside village of Port Jefferson. The village boasts a variety of exclusive shops, unique restaurants, pubs, coffee houses and an old-fashioned candy and ice cream shop. The Zagat rated restaurants located in the waterfront town offer scenic views of the water and exquisite cuisine. Residents of the area take full advantage of the nightlife in downtown Port Jefferson including catching a show at the famous local playhouse. The Port Jefferson ferries dock right in the heart of the village and are Long Island's gateway to Connecticut and the New England area.
Heatherwood seemed like a good option when I was looking for apartments, but I had to arrange it from a distance since I was moving in from another state. This was a cumbersome process since the office staff were not very responsive. This is still my impression after having lived one year at Heatherwood. The leasing office needs to be open more hours, primarily earlier in the morning to accommodate the needs of people that work. The laundry room should be improved, current machines are old.
In general, it is an excellent apartment complex for its money. I do not give an Excellent rating for three reasons: 1) Bugs and spiders coming from the nearby forest. 2) The pool that we have in the apartment complex is not free for guests. For example, when my sister and a niece were visiting me, I had to pay for the pass for them. Moreover, which is completely insane, I had to present in the pool area with them. 3) ACs in the apartments are ancient and loud
the interior of the apartment sound proof poorly done , in bedroom the walking upstaires soooo loud , my rugs are bukled in my apt. told me can,t be fixed , do not like the people who live here i feel unsafe didn,t know when rented the apt. section 8 lived here . moved away from the city to have peace of mind , not here !!
Superintendents are very helpful, but management office is NOT.
