The Oaks Apartments
The complex is in a great location if you are a KU student or just want to be next to shopping and restaurants. The apartment complex is locally owned and professionally managed. They have maintenance staff that is available 24/7. They have a grounds keeper now who keeps all the properties looking good. All utilities are included in the rent. They are always running specials so make sure you ask when you apply. I would recommend Cherry Hill Properties to anyone looking for an spacious apartment home at an affordable price. Go see for yourself.
I lived at "The Oaks" for about three years & would not recommend living there the way it is currently being run. For starters the walls are thin & people are loud. They do not seem to have a noise ordinance and that should be made clear when people sign a lease. I had to call the police several times, once because a women kept getting up at night & kicking people's doors. They would not evict her for this! Later in the same apartment someone DIED & it took them far too long to deal with that nightmare. After the body was removed, they did NOTHING to get rid of the horrendous smell which lingered for at least two weeks. I had to put my own fans in the hallway & kept spraying the hall to help get rid of it! When I complained about it the woman in the office just said "I'm really sorry about that" & shrugged her shoulders. They also do not keep the parking lot clean, there is almost always broken glass. The apartments on the west side are like living in an oven until they deem it time to turn on the AC. If the temp drops below 83 degrees, they shut it off at will. So I guess if none of that bothers you, you might really like living there!!
