What a great place. The grounds look like a park and the apartments are well cared for on the inside and out. The staff, we dealt with Shawn, were exceptional. They got us in quickly with application to keys in a matter of minutes and they took care of us well when it was time to go. The apartments have in unit washer and dryers and that alone makes them wonderful. I wish my stay was longer but things happen and you have to move on when the time is right. Don’t second guess yourself.
Awesome place to live in. The staff is super friendly , specially Shawn. Perfect location from downtown Howell. The apartment complex is well kept and well maintained. The apartments are spacious. Washer and dryer are a huge plus.
This is a great place to live. The management staff is exceptional. I had questions and Katie and Shawn were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I would recommend living here to anyone.
