I like this complex better then where we use to life so much quieter. submitted by Kathy B. - |Recommended: NoI really enjoy living here except I have tried 3 Companies so far to get Cable TV and so far none of them can get coverage due to a large Pine Tree in front of my Patio. Since they can not put it on the roof I am not a happy person. Every time I ask the office if they can cut branches or do something so I can get coverage they say no. I am very disappointed in this and I do not believe this is right. I am not sure if I would suggest this complex to a friend or not.

Worst apartment ive ever rentedsubmitted by Mellisa M. - |Recommended: NoYou never know what the monthly rent is going to be which is unacceptable to me. They don't accept cashiers checks or anything in person manager is super rude btw and the square footage is not worth the money. My cabinets are lopsided, outlets don't work, teenie tiny apartment with fixtures that are falling apart.
response from property -Hello Mellisa, We value hearing your feedback and my apologies for any frustration you are experiencing regarding fluctuating rent payments. The base rent amount will stay the same each month and any variations can come from utility usage, late fees etc so if you have a a recurring payment set up it is important that the dollar amount has an allowance for this variance.

Love My Home submitted by Ronald M. - |Recommended: YesI am very happy in Desert Horizon. I would love to say that I plan on resigning over and over until i get a house of my own. The staff is great everyone The few times i have had an issue everyone was helpful. Being honest i feel that the place is a great deal. My only issue i take is it feels old when it comes to somethings like the AC, the outlets look like they have never been changed. They function like that too... Yet if you call and ask they send someone to fix them, but I was told not all can be fixed and all are broken. So its something I am going to have to do on my own but its 15 min of work so not a biggie but if you are someone who dosnt know how to do it or cant... Its a huge issue. All and all I am very happy and its my home but just look at the model before you sign the papers is all. Make sure its something you can do.
response from property -Hello Ronald, We appreciate hearing your feedback and thank you for taking the time to post online. The Community Director will be in contact referencing your outlets and we thank you for choosing to make your home here with us at the Desert Horizon community. Kind regards, Kristie - Weidner Customer Service

Not worth of Moneysubmitted by Dipak S. - |Recommended: NoVery low quality apartment...too frequent repairs needed every month a new problem Office will no longer accept packages.
response from property -Hello Dipak, Thank you for providing feedback of your residency online and for mentioning specifics so that we are aware of your source of frustration. To clarify regarding packages, we do still accept packages for residents but there indeed a size and weight limit as the community is not set up to receive larger packages etc. We do also have brand new parcel lockers where a resident can obtain a package after hours which has been very successful. Hopefully that service will be useful for you. Kind regards, Kristie - Weidner Customer Service

Convenience fee submitted by James B. - |Recommended: NoYour forcing us to pay online but your going to charge us 50 to do so Not sure if that's legal.
response from property -Hello James, Thank you for voicing your concerns regarding online payment. My apologies if there has been any misunderstanding but you can pay with your bank account with no fee. With a credit card payment there is a processing fee that is charged by the credit card company and I am so sorry for any frustration that may cause as we have no control over that aspect with that particular form of payment and the entire processing fee is collected by the credit card company. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to connect with your on-site team directly as they are happy to discuss payment options with our valued residents. Kind regards, Kristie - Weidner Customer Service
