There have been many ups and downs throughout the duration of the property. It has changed just as ownership has changed and the improvements that have been made are notable. Rome was not built in a day and the issues and concerns of the past cannot be changed and fixed, by new owners, overnight. Any time changes are made there wi
We actually didn't end up moving here due to availability. Regardless, we were so appreciative of Jessica from the leasing office for going above and beyond for us. The grounds and apartments are beautiful, there is no pet rent, and a large portion of your pet deposit is refundable. I would definitely recommend to anyone to check i
I've been a resident 7 months here and overall I have really enjoyed it. The good:The complex is clean, the clubhouse is always stocked, the landscape is mature, plenty of grass everywhere with poop stations to walk the dog. The office has events catered with actual free food, they have a policy to keep the gates open during the d
I visit my friend there.the apt is beautiful
I've lived here almost a year and feel safe in this community. Questions answered and maintenance issues tended to quickly and professionally. Staff is awesome! Monthly socials and great pool/jacuzzi and fitness room! Landscaping is beautiful and well-maintained. Best part, location, location, location!
Personally loved living here. The only complaint I would have is with some of the neighbors not following rules (ie not picking up after their pets, leaving garbage outside doors.) Otherwise it was a great community to live in.
This is my second year living on the property. It is fantastic. It is well-maintained and the office staff are simply wonderful, they are truly a delight to interact with.
I would always recommend that place the retreat to anybody that comes my way I want to school and there's nothing wrong with them they're very professional love the office and how professional they were in the whole site either it comes to workorders
The apartments building are maintain clean, organized. The staff are very friendly, courteous and professional. I love the apartment complex with a resort style.
Parking is in short supply, esp in close proximity to apartment. Notice from apartment above at late hours is very annoying. Office staff is not helpful or friendly.
Concerned about roaches. I have seen lots of little ones in my kitchen. Neighbors are friendly. Amenities are nice and for the most part, well kept.
Love the staff from the initial office meeting continuing through the years I've lived here and on to the maintenance staff who is also super quick and super courteous!
I would recommend the apartment based on maintenance.
I would recommend this apartment as it is close to town, great staff and amenities yet I would not recommend it due to the high cost of rent.
Just moved in yesterday. My leasing agent is Mariel and I have nothing but positive things to say about her. When I called to look at an apartment, Jessica was going to help me. However, I couldn't make it during the time she was there and They told me Mariel would help me. It was definitely meant to be that I ended up with her. The
We have lived here for 2.5 years and love this place. The same office staff is here that was here when we moved in ( which is unusual @ most apt complexes ) and they are great. My biggest complaint is that a lot of the residents here with dogs don't clean up after them. They even let their dogs poop on the side walk and walk away
They are clean and the amenities are kept up. I don't feel there is a "show" that's put on at the front of the property and the rest is forgotten.
Well maintained, dog friendly community. Friendly, out going staff. Beautiful amenities. It is just a great place to live.
I would recommend this apartment community to family and friends because every experience I have had has been positive. All employees are friendly and smile and wave at every encounter. When my father passed away in July, every employee was kind in every way. I can't tell you how much that has meant to me.
Being a luxury apartment homes , it has lived up to its name that of being a retreat. It's very peaceful and quiet , great amenities.
It's all about location. This place is just the right amount of isolated and central to stores to be a fantastic location.
never had a issue at this place. staff were friendly and helpful. trash removal service isn't the best tho.
Affordable and nice , I see all the nasty reviews and can't possibly imagine why they were made other than it bein years ago when the place was new and had to work on itself. However I have not lived here long yet so let's hope it stays as good as I think it it.... It is my first apartment and first out of state, Jessica is the rep w
Never had an issue, staff is always helpful. Parking can be an issue at times, but that'd be my only real gripe. Maintenance will usually get to you within an hour.
I love my apartment. Just moved in, in January. So far they have redone the mulch, put new grass in bald areas, and put up a more sturdy fence at the dog park. Mariel is my favorite lady at the front, always a delight to talk to her, she treats everyone like a friend! My dogs love to walk around the lake and since they put in new do
My wife and I have lived here going on 4 years. We enjoy living here, the office staff is always friendly, the maintenance team always responds to any issues you may have in a timely fashion. I have read some reviews about "hearing the people walking above them or next door" that is called Appartment Living. I own a dog walking and
lived here for many years. Having to move.cux I lost my job. Very sad. The office staff is amazing. Awesome five years I have lived here.
These apartments are like the size of a house. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful when I went to visit. The closest immediately took me to "heaven" because it was so humongous! I have never seen a closet this big at any apartment. In addition there was even an office with a built in desk and shelves. Every day I come home
The Retreat in Jacksonville, FL is an amazing apartment to call your home! I lived in the retreat for a year before I had to move to Fleming Island,FL( because of health reasons). I love the atmosphere and the way neighbors and thier staff respect one another at The Retreat. I went through a lot last year because of health issues. Bu
I've been a resident here for over a year now and I love it. The staff and my neighbors are always friendly . I will highly recommend this apartment complex:)
I had to move to Florida for military reasons. Well my wife and I did pretty extensive research for apartments in the area, in our budget. We looked at about 16 different apartment complex's within about 30 minutes of Naval Station Mayport and after we saw this place it completely ruined us for all the other Complex's we went to look
Been living here for over a year now. It is a great place to live at a decent price. It is quiet, and neighbors are great. I would recommend it's place to anyone.
My family had never lived in an apartment until a transfer to Jacksonville brought us here 2 years ago. We selected the Retreat based on the really nice layout/patio of the 3/2 we got, the beautiful pool area (it really looks like the picture!) and the proximity to schools, shopping and the Mayo Clinic. First, the less than desirab
Grounds are nice, but dog park is disgusting - NOT AT ALL maintained and full of dog poop. Its gross. Amenities are pleasant and pool is great in the summer, but not heated. Also the pool closes at 10 pm, which is somewhat obnoxious on weekends when a courtesy officer threatens to arrest you for trespassing at 10:01 pm (and you're a
All the amenities you need. Beautiful place. Friendly staff as well. Great place to live
