Rental Review|Recommended: YesGreat staff By Anchorage standards, this is a nice complex. Good sound proofing between units. Free gas heat and hot water is huge in Anchorage since the local utility reams everyone on rates. Nice gas fire places as well. Incredibly dog friendly complex with doggie bag stations everywhere so there is very little dog poop anywhere. The complex is buried out of sight from the main street, Lake Otis, by several blocks and has a guard gate and is fully fenced all the way around. They also have security patrols all night every night, which is huge for Anchorage as well. So, for Anchorage, this is one of the best complexes for the price. Everyone who lives here are pretty much working professionals so you don't have to worry about living next to a dirt bag.

Good value, pleasant environment, nice location.|Recommended: YesThe office staff is immediately responsive, polite, and friendly. Maintenance completes any work orders promptly. Grounds are well cared for, even when there's a ton of snow. My unit is very quiet, and neighbors friendly. Club house and workout facilities are less that what I'd prefer, but overall the value is good.
Great property|Recommended: Yesvery nice apartments, large rooms, washer dryers, Garage, walking closets, garden bath tub, fireplace, porch. I don't like that the entrance to each apartment is next to the neighbors doors. I think the grounds are very bad, dog poop everywhere, I cleaned up mine, but many neighbors let their dogs go everywhere, so unless a dog person, this is probably not the place to live. Maintenance, the few times I used them, they took forever to respond, two to three weeks to respond to a problem unless emergent, is bad. I would recommend to a friend, the apartments inside are very nice, i feel secure here too. Im moving because I found a house in a good location to rent.
Best property in Anchorage|Recommended: YesBest value and best appearance in anchorage. Very well kept. Awesome views. Has devoted covered parking and outlet for engine block heater. Staff is great and willing to work with you. Very pet friendly but have to pay pet rent. Overall a well built and well maintained property.

Luxury-ish Apartment, Luxury High Price|Recommended: NoIn living here 5 years since June 2011 in the same apartment, the gate on the gated' community worked for 2-3 weeks one of the main reasons my wife chose this complex. Security has gone extremely downhill since we moved in. Amenities such as the community gym' and hot tub were nice to have but not utilized by my wife or myself often. Some of the neighbors were great, very friendly and nice, but others were less than desirable between hearing loud noises at odd hours or discourteous in their parking methods nothing against Weidner or the staff at Highlands, they were very responsive when i alerted them to issues with our neighbors . Apartment itself was of good quality, standard cabinets and counters with basic appliances, but for the cost per month i expected more we were in an apartment with 1 window and 1 sliding glass door both on the same side of the building, the north side, which made for a very dark, stuffy apartment especially since every year when we renewed our lease, besides not having the same person s to talk to during renewal high staff turnover , the suggested new rate per month started to become outrageous, jumping 500 or more each year, which we fought to keep under 2000 month as we felt there was no reason to increase it so sharply for an apartment of our size Sinclair w Garage . Having the gas heat integrated into the cost was nice, as well as a discount with GCI for the basic cable package, but the building combined water was a little weird one meter for the whole building, then usage gets divided somehow among the residents someone could, in theory, use a ton of water one month and then everyone would share in the cost . Electricity was through Chugach. The garage was very basic and easy to maintain, no issues at all. We had 2 dogs and walking them within the complex was very easy, however some other dog owners made this experience less than desirable. Some owners would on colder days let their dog run free to where then wanted to go to the bathroom and then run back and subsequently not clean up after them because it was too cold, too early in the morning, or because they thought it would get covered up in the snow. More often than not, it was mostly because they didn't have a spare bag on there person to pick up their pet's waste due to not being near a bag dispenser or the dispenser being empty usually not more than a couple days . The grounds during the winter are okay, there are weird spots that get sun and others that do not leading to large icy spots immediately adjacent to 100 dry spots, rocks can only go so far. Rocks were cleaned up fairly quickly probably a couple weeks after the city was done . Summer was better, grass was well maintained sans a rogue dog poo . The maintenance staff was very timely in fixing issues in our apartment, the longest wait we had from submittal to completion was 1 week due to waiting on a part. The move out process with the current staff as of Feb 2016 was very helpful and made the process extremely easy. They have even went so far as to help with our mail as the USPS has been less than helpful.
Friendly and Helpful Staff|Recommended: YesReminds me of a condo vacation rental it's not luxurious as far as appliances go because it's basic standard with small living quarters, however, it's well managed and maintained.
