The place is nice overall I'd say, rather visually attractive, but it *is* apartment living. I moved in Mid March.ShawnAnthony was very helpful with the move in process, and the front office staff has been pleasant in general. Pet rent was $40, which I think is a ridiculous practice - If my cat ruins things, that's what a pet deposit

Summer House is apartment living, lots of families, kids, teenagers, and everything in between.

They responded immediately to all

The security guards now are better then they used to be about 2-3 months ago. They got a new company now and the guards seem quite kool. The best guard I think is Ali that comes in at 6pm and stays here till quite late. I havent seen him around for a couple day's now though, I hope they bring him back because he was really friendly a

This is a huge complex.  Statistically speaking, some things are going to go wrong for a few people in such a large complex, but I've experienced nothing but the best.  Great neighbors, atmosphere, and office personnel.  Sunday brunch is ridiculously delicious and a great way for the neighbors to socialize - what a brilliant idea!  I

New management. You can ignore MOST of the reviews from before 2014. Look, the complex has around 700 apartments. With that many people, there are bound to be a few issues (fire alarms, no parking, overflowing trash bins), but so far I haven't seen or heard anything that would make me say, "I hate this place & I HAVE to move."
