Bountiful CourtRate This Apartment
This complex offers a decent price. You get what you pay for. The location is good--right next to downtown provo. The ward is fun and very social. Management is willing to work through problems.
I rented from fall 2015 through summer 2016.
Is there a way to make this 0 stars in some of these? I absolutely HATE this place!
They have no real office hours, because they change frequently, and people are rarely in when the hours say they will be. Emails are rarely answered despite what they say. Maintenance takes weeks to fix any problems you may have, and then the fix is usually only half baked.
And don\'t let the prices they list lure you in, they add all kinds of extra fines which makes this one of the more expensive places around. This includes being charged for cleaning rechecks (when you fail the monthly cleaning check). What\'s worse is they LIED saying that other places charge more, so we are getting a deal here. I have looked, and I have not seen anywhere else that charges for the recheck, only for any fines if the recheck is failed as well.
Also, ignore comments about it having a good ward. It changes every year, so there is no way to predict how \"good\" the ward is. Plus, it\'s BYU, there will be \"good\" wards wherever you live.

Don\'t live here. Bountiful Courts is cheap, but it isn\'t that great of a deal to make up for all the horrible things that come with living here. Management is the worst I have experienced in provo and I would do anything to go back and change my mind about living here. We had a leak in our roof for over 2 weeks that they had to come and fix three times. They never responded to our maintenance requests so two days after we had submitted two, we had to knock on the office door, which was closed during office hours to even get them to address the problem. We were out of our apartment for two weeks, plus some other various days, and they denied reimbursing us for those days we weren\'t able to live in the apartment. The construction was done so that drywall, insulation, mud, and other debris was blown all over our room and all over our clothes. During this whole ordeal management would not answer emails or questions, and even told us to not call her. We even had to start working with the BYU housing office, but management had no problem telling them blatant lies and misinforming them. If you want to have to move out of your apartment mid semester, wash all of your clothing and bedding, loose some of your belongings to damage, and stress out about being reimbursed for the two weeks you didn\'t live in the apartment that you were paying for, live here. It is just an experience that is greatly disappointing, frustrating, and quite frankly, rude. Don\'t pay people like this.

-Lived here for 3 years..I really loved the floor plan. large kitchen, fair sized living room. There\'s 3 ppl in 2 largish bedrooms (used to be married housing), which I loved because the BC\'s known to attract some weirdies..so it\'s nice having another person in the room as a buffer haha. Also, a lot of really cool people move there on a whim and then move out cause the social life is roughh.
-2 bathrooms for 6 people was never an issue. I also really liked that the ward was the single building; everyone was in close reach. Has a lot of potential to be fun, if you can get fun people to move there. Close to downtown, but like a 20 min walk from campus.
-First set of management, Jess, was the BOMB. New management (Sophie, etc..) definitely rough. Pretty sure she\'s like 19. They switched a girl into our apartment without asking us, ripped off some of my roommates, and were pretty rude/inconsiderate in general.
-Parking\'s great. My friend left her car parked in the garage the whole summer while she was away. lol.
-Price was good. Started at $350 but I got so many discounts for living there so long and signing yearly by the end of it I was paying like $185 a month. :)

Management is terrible. They \'arrive\' at work around 3 in the afternoon. (They live there, yet somehow can\'t be at work before 3) they \'leave\' at 5. (Again they live there, so no reason they should be done at 5. I wouldn\'t insist that they work past five except, again, they don’t begin work until 3.) Half the time they aren’t even there during that 3-5 window. They don\'t work at all some days.
They charged us for removing a screen, despite the screen being its being untouched by us. If anyone touched it, it was the previous tenants and 2. The screen was unmoved and undamaged. Whatever the previous tenants did it didn\'t damage the screen any.
I don\'t recommend this place under this management.
I rented from spring 2015 through spring 2016.
Simply put, Bountiful Court is one of the absolute worst places you could ever choose to live. DO NOT live here unless you are absolutely desperate and would end up homeless instead of getting an apartment here! The apartments are crap and management makes you clean them like they are five star apartments. You never knew if the shower was going to have hot water that day. Six people to one apartment and they are tiny! The claim that it is the best singles value housing in Provo is a joke. And the ward was full of either weird people or people who already had friends and didn\'t want to get to know you. I consider myself a fairly social person but this ward was one of my least favorite. And the guy-girl ratio is a total farce, definitely not a 1:1 ratio. The apartments are so far away from campus which sucked too. Management tries to scam you out of your money for cleaning checks also! The expect you to move into a filthy and trashy apartment and make it look cleaner than it was when you moved in. Basically everything about this place sucks. Worst four months of my life living here, and I do not recommend it to anyone ever.
I rented from winter 2014 through winter 2014.
I never write reviews for something unless I find it really important. Please listen to me. DO NOT CHOOSE TO LIVE AT BOUNTIFUL COURTS. Don\'t do it to yourself.
I rented from fall 2015 through fall 2015.
DO NOT LIVE HERE. Management is awful, they never answer your phone calls or respond to your emails. Half the time the office isn\'t open when they say it will be. They are incredibly difficult to work with, especially Afton Taylor, the Manager. The apartments are overall outdated, dirty, and too crowded--especially for SIX people to one tiny living space. Not a lot of room to put your things. Bunk beds are annoying and squeaky, the pool is gross and the ward isn\'t close at all. I\'ve had a terrible experience living here and I would not recommend it to anyone, not even my worst enemy. They will fine you for things that you didn\'t even know were possible, and make sure you READ THE CONTRACT THOROUGHLY. They will make you pay for any little thing.

This apartment complex is outdated, overpriced, noisy, and overall a terrible place to live especially as a student. Take my advice, and DO NOT LIVE HERE. The bedrooms are way too small to house three people in them each and still charge as much as they do. One of the showers didn't even work for the entire time that I lived there. Management never fixed it but still expected that we clean it every month for cleaning checks. The "community" that people brag about so often is pretty awful - but not everyone thinks so. The worst part is that they constantly require cleaning checks and I ended up just being charged beyond my security deposit for it at the end because it's impossible to keep such a small place clean with 6 people living there and they be sure to catch you on it and make you pay. The appliances are extremely outdated, the furniture is outdated. the entire apartment is crammed and uncomfortable and outdated. There is absolutely no parking available after 8 pm except two blocks away on the street. There is so much noise because you are in a tiny crammed apartment complex where six people live in each small apartment. There was also construction going on for the last 4 months of my lease so forget about studying for finals at home, and forget about sleeping in past 6am. The one time I used their washer to wash my clothes their appliances were so outdated that it ruined a few of my shirts. The Internet was also supposed to be google fiber, but I could never do more than basic internet searches. Netflix rarely streamed here even though they charged you like it did and made you pay for it as though it did. DO NOT LIVE HERE.
I rented from winter 11 through spring 11.
I lived here Spring and Summer of 2014 and I will NEVER live here again.
I thought I was getting a good deal when I signed for $100 a month... Turns out that the contract and management were very misleading. I clip below is the only way that I can accurately describe my feelings after having to live at Bountiful Court.
If you want to hate your life then live at Bountiful Court.
