Going on my second year living here and I love it. Seriously, no complaints. I've lived in 5 apartments and this is the absolute best bang-for-your-buck living I've ever experienced. You don't have to compromise on anything. Even though we're right off the main road and bus stop (convenient as heck), it's been very quiet. I don't know what it looked like before their updates, but my apartment is so perfect for me and my partner. White cabinets, stainless steel appliances, lots of natural light and a smart layout. When we originally toured we weren't able to see a vacant (which is usually a non-negotiable). I have to say, our apartment was as beautiful and fresh as the model. I really do love it here.

It is so wonderful to hear about your experience at Franklin Woods! Our location and beautiful appliances are truly amazing, so we love knowing that you are enjoying your time here. If there is ever anything we can help with, please don't hesitate to swing by our office. Thanks!


My husband and I rented an apartment here as a second home after looking at multiple apartments in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area. Renting at Franklin Woods was the best decision we could have made. The management and support people are extremely friendly and want to insure that we are completely happy at all times. The location couldnt be more convenient-the area is very walkable with restaurants and stores nearby. You can be in downtown Chapel Hill in minutes as there is a bus stop right out front. I highly recommend checking this place out if you are looking for a safe, nicely appointed and convenient home in Chapel Hill.
