I am giving them one star only because of location. This place is horrible. I lived here from 2007 until 2014 and yes I have seen all of the many staff that has come and gone. I will go on record to say that every comment made about the Assistant Manager Carina. She is a joke. She runs everyone and does try to use intimidation. I lived here because I had no other options at the time with my 4 children. The harassment level was thru the roof. I never was able to have a single order completed to have anything fixed. Every time I went to the office she complained about something else. in 2014 I was approved for a new house and I was able to leave this hell. Oh but not first being cursed out by MISS CARINA. She and I were literally yelling at each other, where she admitted that she will not allow me to leave my lease one day early (although my neighbor was allowed to leave her lease 2 weeks early). She then called Union Township Police to come to my apartment to have my moving crew (TWO MEN AND A TRUCK) to be escorted off of the property (thankfully I had already moved everything out and they were here just to be sure everything was out). She was then told by the officers to meet me the next day to have they keys returned and she never even showed up for work. Long story short, she is charging me 125.00 to replace carpet throughout my apartment (315 south) that was damaged during the fire that happened 2 days after I moved in. I have never dealt with more immature people in my life. I agree with other when they said that if you have no where to go, this is a ok place. (being as this is a INCOME BASED apartment) but be careful. The Bedbugs are horrible, and they never fix anything. And just as everyone says, you only deal with Carina, and she will walk all over you. The rules apply that you can only have a person stay the night with you for 14 days out of a 6 month period. They have cameras in the hallways now to only watch she is coming and going from apartments. I know this because when the man down the hall from me had his apartment broke into they were unable to help the police with the camera footage, but could see how many times my boy friend was there. Good luck to anyone who is living there or who plans to move there

I looked at the reviews others wrote, and I had to make an account so that I could comment on how inaccurate the majority of the information is. PLZ READ ALL... I have been living at Beechwood for over 2yrs now, and the good thing about being here is that you are not far from a good school district (for young & older kids) food, the park, shopping, groceries store, pretty much whatever you could need, and if you dont work in the area or just wanna get out, the highway is less than 5min away. I wrote that 1st because I didn't want to be totally negative. Now, whoever said something in reference to the pool is a liar. There has been no pool here since 2009. A friend of mine who stayed their had to come to our apt. Pool to swim. There is a lot of unused space that can be better utilized out back but it is what it is. Now as far as management, the asst. manager is the only one who has managed to keep her position for any length of time and unfortunately (as someone else stated) she does have a consistent bad attitude that makes you very uncomfortable talking to her. Kind of like your bothering her and your less than her. From me going from visiting people here to moving in I have seen Mantinance, janitor, even managers come & go. However, you never know what goes on in the front office so I can only comment on what I've seen and experienced. I do have a feeling that the group that's here now will stay around due to the fact that they all do what Carina (asst manager) says. GETTING TO THE POINT... If you need to save some money or can't afford to move where you want, this place is okay TEMPORARILY. Just stay to yourself!! Watch your car. I've seen kids vandalize cars & that's where parents who just know they have perfect kids come into play. There are a few drug dealers/users and bad a** kids, parents who act like teenagers, but their everywhere nowadays. Can't blame management for that. That my reader if your still with me :) is an accurate & honest observation/description of Beechwood Villa. 80%=bad 20%= what you make it (which can be added to the bad very quickly if your not careful). It's honestly like a job. nobody really wants to be here, the boss sucks, but one day you know/hope you'll be outta there!

I would not recommend this place to anyone! I have been waiting a year for floors, stove, dishwasher to be fixed. Still waiting on screens on my windows and blinds. Garbage disposal was recently fixed, bet it won't last a week. Because of a faulty pipe, my closets have filled with water, destroying many important things. I go to the office to see eyes rolled and rushed out. Assistant manager is extremely rude and rare to see her in a good enough mood to even be comfortable to talk to her. Also chooses favorites and no matter how many rules that person breaks, nothing happens. Due to so much noise and yelling from upstairs, i have not slept a full night in at least 10 months. I recommend everyone should look elsewhere for a place to live. This place is not worth the stress!

Stay away from this place!!!! Management is constantly changing and extremely incompetent. They are not honest with the residents. Also, with all of their "renovations" they are not looking out for the safety of the residents, I was injured by their negligience and they did not even ask how we were(I am 7 months pregnant and this negligience caused me to go into labor). Drug activity is everywhere, maintenance inside the apartments are ignored. When I was injured, the EMT who took me to the ER actually asked me why in the world I would want to live here and to get out of here immediately!

I heard that the company is going to put in alot of money into the property.I can see the difference. This new staff is the best they have had since moving in a couple yrs ago.

It is amazing just how in a few months Beechwood has turned directions I see that the new staff are making some big changes! They had the carpets cleaned in the hallways,putting new siding on the buildings and the outsides of the buildings are lighted up so good. I hear that more change is coming and I welcome it. Thank you Beechwood for caring about us!

Beechwood Villas is so convenient to everything. About 2 miles from Eastgate Mall, restaurants, great school district, etc. I am so happy with the new manager and assistant manager because they really care about us and make this a great place to live. The owners are in the process of upgrading everything: all new exterior siding and lights, redecorating the hallways to look like upscale condo living, new covered picnic area, large well kept pool, remodeled kitchens and baths. Beechwood has now become a place that I am proud to be at and I just want to tell everyone about it. If you want a nice family place to live where the manager and staff take good care of you, then move here. You will not regret it!!!!!! I don't want to forget the new maintenance team here.....WOW.....they really care about us and come and fix something within 24 hours. I rate Beechwood Villas a big "10".

I have seen drugs being bought and sold in both buildings, found needles all around and drunks sit outside the main doors living it up and bumming all sorts of things from money to cigarettes from all that enter the buildings... I'm just getting back on my feet and really am grateful for the help but if I had it to do over, I would stay with friends or in a hotel. And not to mention, Candy the manager tends to *hang* with other peoples better half secretly! This is more like a bar and not so safe feeling! GL ALL

You Know i understand and I am very gratefull they are doing the upgrades. But I feel like I have no privacy. I just hope they will be done soon. The other thing I wanted to complain about is I tried to share some coupons. They wouldn't ley me put them in the office, so I put them in the laundry room. They were thrown out. Yeah I picked them out of the garbage... I put them in an envolope and put them on the cork board in the laundry room. I put a not asking that they do not throw them away. If they do that I asked they be returned to me. I put my apt # on the note. They got thrown away again. I guess if you get help with your rent you aren't allowed to use coupons... much less try to help anybody else. I don't iunderstand Why???? With grocery prices and everything? Are we not allowed to help each other? Or is it that once your here, you stay here. Most people here don't have much money or anything else. What's wrong with trying to help one another. Is it against HUD rules or something?? I guess if your poor, then they sure do try to make sure you stay that way.

Not a good place to live I would not live there again.Office staff is not good and seems unknowlagable about how to maintain a good place to live. They also appear to be non-compationate to peoples needs.The out side areas look very dirty, and the parking lots are used by people who are not supposed to be there,and most lights dont work.This is not a nice comfortable place to live.The local police department is there often, and for good cause.
