Location is good, but thats about it. Don\'t do business with Cathy Orehowski. She\'s been lying to and threatening tenants in Provo for the last 20 years.

I rented from fall 2009 through winter 2010.

Cathy is the worst landlord in Provo. She is a very dishonest person that will take every penny she can from you. She will not give your deposit back and she is very hard to deal with. She made one of my roommates pay rent twice because she has no means to keep an accurate record of rent being paid. She also sold a new contract to a girl my other roommate found to buy the remainder of her contract so my roommate had to find someone new to sell her contract to. She is a deceitful person. DO NOT LIVE HERE

I rented from fall 10 through winter 11.

DO NOT LIVE HERE UNTIL THE LIFE SCIENCE BUILDING IS COMPLETE!!!!!! The construction wakes me up every morning sometimes as early as 445. I can hear the people talking, trucks beeping, metal clanging, very very frustrating. The apartments are okay nothing special. I like having my own room and I love how close they are to campus. Also I tenred summer 12 to fall 13 that just wasnt an option.

I rented from summer 10 through fall 11.

Yes, the apartments are nice, and yes, the apartments are close to campus, but by and large, I don't think it was worth it. It came as a nasty shock when I realized that rates don't change during the summer. I also had some bad experiences with the management (although the landlady is nice to you if you're nice to her, roommates often make things tough), so I wouldn't say that it's worth it. The ward is fun if you make it fun, but I would definitely rather live somewhere else.

I rented from fall 10 through summer 11.

I loved this apartment complex and ward.
There were definitely pros and cons:
Pros- I bought my contract off someone else. Usually it's 350 year round.
You have your own room, sink, and pantry. You have a huge closet and desk. You share a bathroom with one person the apt only has four people.
The location is unbeatable-such a quick walk.
The ward is fantastic-count on making an effort though. Most of your social life will probably be with the other apt in the ward called Park Place.
Cons-Not terribly social-once again, you have to make an effort. You also have to deal with the worst land-lady that I have EVER had. She is VERY nit-picky about cleaning checks (my roommated cleaned her area moving out for several days ans still didn't pass. I thought it was the cleanest job I had ever done and she still found something wrong with it-just count on paying a cleaning fee).
I know this isn't huge, but another con is that you pay for utilities separately. I like the flat rate paid with the apartment. Oh, and the carpets are dirty and ugly. But everything else about them is really nice.

I rented from summer 11 through summer 11.

The apartments are all private rooms and very spacious. There is ample parking in the large underground lot and the smaller lot in front of the complex. The chastity wall separating the men's apartments from the women's apartments are very annoying, and this set up kind of inhibits your social life. It's a little pricier than some other private rooms, but it is extremely close to campus.

Without a doubt, the worst managed property in Provo. The manager is rude and unresponsive to problems. We had gang graffiti in the stairwells, multiple car break-ins, even a few girls who had guys break into their apartments and the property management refused to do anything about safety. The underground garage is too dark and scary. NOT WORTH IT!!!

I rented from fall '05 through fall '06.
