It was a quiet community, the pools were nice to have, after the hurricane back in September they cleaned up the mess quickly, the front staff was super nice and very helpful!

As a resident of the Charlton Arms of South Lakeland property, I have thoroughly enjoyed my living experience here for almost 3 years.  The staff in the front office are phenomenal in their customer service, but more importantly they make it a point to know you personally.  The maintenance crew are timely and communicate effectively

I never do reviews, but I realize what a big step it is to select a home and it is not easy, so I hope my comments are helpful.  When I moved to Lakeland, I was looking for rent that I could afford, a place where I felt safe (I live alone), and convenience (Publix is just about 2 miles away).  Carlton Arms (South Lakeland) met all of

Currently we live in Huntington at Sundance across the highway, but we wish we could return to Carlton Arms South. We had to move to a 3BR due to a new baby but Carlton Arms does not offer anything bigger than a 2BR. This place is horrible compared to CAS, especially if you any issues during your lease. They can't even keep the front

When we first moved to the area, we looked at several places, but after passing here we had to go look it. It was beautiful and the amenities were too good to pass up, we stopped looking that day and signed a lease! It was a great choice!

My wife and I owned a home for thirty years before we decided to move and rent a place, that was 14 years ago. We've been at Carlton Arms that entire 14 years and we couldn't be happier. We never have any complaints, everyone here is cordial and very helpful. We hope to enjoy another 14 years here!
