ONE MONTH FREE ON A NEW MONTH LEASE!! Call for the simple details! Special subject to change without notice.
I lived at Ventana Hills for about 5 years. I really miss my apartment there. Overall, it was a positive experience, but there was a mix of good and bad. THE GOOD: The view was really nice from up on the hill. It was in a somewhat rural setting with lots of trees. The Montour trail was within walking distance. It looked nice and had a posh feel to everything. The maintenance was always on top of it when something broke. Decent gym. The grounds looked nice. THE BAD: You couldn't run your heater and have hot water at the same time (the heater didn't have its own heating element; it relied on hot water being pumped through it). The construction didn't feel very sturdy; when someone walked up the main stairs, my wall would shake. The guy that lived above me couldn't walk across his floor without shaking my whole apartment. Most of the time, at least one piece of equipment was broken in the gym. When something broke in the gym, it was usually broken for months. The main road it pretty busy and sometimes it was hard to turn out of the complex.
We stayed in Ventana hills apartments from May of 2016 through Mid August 2017.
The one serious complaint we have is regarding how they handled our departure. We were on month to month after our first year regular contract as we were looking to move into a house or get out of state. We dropped the key late afternoon on August 11, 2017 making our official departure date to be August 12.
Ventana Hills made us pay for electricity, gas and even water for the entire month of August when there should have been no utility usage.
So they went into the apartment, did their cleaning works with utility billing under me and showed their cheapness - nickeling and diming us !!!
44kWH of electricity from Aug 14 - 27: $13.52 (DLC utility bill)
26CuFt of water from August 12 - 30 (Nationwide Energy Partners usage bill)
Gas bill for August 12 - 28: $21.29 (Billing info provided by Ventana Hills via email)
When I inquired about all this they cited to sections #8, #38, #43 in the lease - Wow ! It was okay for them to use utilities under my name and have the guts to charge me for it !!!
I didn't receive the check for my security deposit within the time frame as was required per their own lease agreement document per my surrendering date being August 12. But that is ok right? They can do whatever !!
The community, at the hilltop, was nice and quiet. We especially enjoyed easy access to the Montour Trail and highways I79 and I376.
The apartment was advertised as luxury living, however, with the vinyl coated counters and cheap appliances we never got that feel !!
We were very impressed with their handling of maintenance issues - most of the times we got next day service except for the one instance where kitchen area carpet was needed to be replaced due to water damage which was understandable.
Our suggestion is be very careful with how and when you want to hand over the keys !!!
I like this apartment is beautiful

Comfort is coming home

Every living space is architecturally brilliant, and has been designed for comfort and carefree living. Few communities can offer the style and prestige enjoyed by Located close to schools, shopping, entertainment, and formal or casual dining, our gated community offers residents trouble free living and luxurious amenities. We are also located 25 minutes from the new Shell ethane "cracker" plant located in Monaca, PA.
