Crystal is the BEST apt manager I have ever had. She is very nice, always responds to my emails and is very understanding. I LOVE HER!!!! Apts are nice, clean and quiet. Neighbors keep to themselves and the complex is safe and clean.
I love living here. I have an amazing view of the Pyramid and Harbor. It's close enough to Harbortown and downtown that you have lots to do. The maintenance staff does a great job handling issues quickly and efficiently. The office staff is so nice. Parking can get a little tight sometimes. The gym is nice. The pool is great. I would highly recommend living here.
I lived at Grand Island Apartments during my first year of school at UTHSC. My problems with Grand Island really didnt start until the spring semester. My upstairs neighbors washer somehow leaked and flooded my first floor apartment. Completely drenched all my stuff, ruined my laptop right before a major gross anatomy exam. I mentally shut down due to the unbelievable amount of stress of losing all my study material a couple of days before the exam. It was one of the hardest weekends of dental school. The Grand Island staff did clean what they could of the mess, but I was definitely upset to find out later from one of the staff that the washer had been experiencing these problems but the apt management never fixed it.
Then I had an attempted break-in during the same semester. Instead of replacing the door (something they never did), they blamed it on a drunkard who was probably just trying to get back into his apartment. Who does this with a crowbar??? The markings were so heavy, you could see my parked car in the parking lot from my apt living room through the crowbar-made hole. My sense of security diminished after that incident and especially after requests of fixing the door wasnt meant with a real solution or replacement of the door.
TL;DR/summary: I lived here my first year, and my apt was flooded by my upstairs neighbors malfunctioning washer and also had an attempted break-in. I think if problems ever occur for you at this apt, the management wont care as long as youre still paying them rent. In both of the incidents, the staff were rude to me. I have photos if they try to discredit me, but unfortunately I did live here before and these events happened.
Great location, great price, amazing friendly staff, quiet, great amenities.
I have lived on Mud Island since 2009, but this is the only place that left a positive impression. The office staff is always professional and cordial. I paid more per month compared to the previous complex, but I felt that the cost was worth it. The complex is very clean, and the staff is friendly and very accommodating. The small recommendation would be to consider prioritizing storage, specifically in the kitchen area(no full-sized utensil drawers).
