Oasis in the Desert submitted by Vishu T. - |Recommended: YesIts said that the little things and small gestures make big impact. I got to know this when I contacted the Administration office for a Maintenance work and when returned home there was sweet card with a candy attached to it Heart, Heart I loved the style. Its truly an Oasis in the Desert, a relief for the travelers. I enjoy the look and feel of the place and feel lucky to be part of the Weidner homes. ------Vishu Tyagi
Not satisfiedsubmitted by Mahesh G. - |Recommended: NoThe AC heater makes loud noise and I have complained about it at the beginning of my stay ,also I didn't get good reception at the front office waterton and weidner both .I was charged 300 on my move out and am going to tell all my friends currently living at this community and am not going to recommend this place to any of my friends who enquire about this property.

Don't have time to list all of the reasons why I disliked my time here.submitted by David O. - |Recommended: NoI was serious about not having time. If this review gets the automatic, call and we can work this out. Already emailed and called many times. If you want a better place to live in North Scottsdale, I would recommend Villa Montaña. Also comparable price.

Good price for the areasubmitted by Haley P. - |Recommended: YesGood price for the area - but could use a little fixing upping. Even the newer apartments still need an update. Temp staff is unknowledgeable - office staff is sometimes unwelcoming. Layout is pretty good

Poor Quality. Unacceptable Staff behavior.submitted by Rajavardhana R. - |Recommended: NoI would say. it is a poor quality community. The buildings are cheap no proper insulation. The power bills are touching the roof for almost everyone due to old AC units coupled with poor quality walls and buildings. Noisy and Staff were so rude. I moved inside the same community from 1 bed to 2 Bed and it was almost like a war with the office staff. it shouldn't be like this. Since I pointed things which were not done as informed to me in my new apartment, they put an inflated fine on my vacated apartment. i feel this apartment needs to go a long way to change things and some issues which are fundamental and deep rooted, i don't feel they will ever be able to change or improve any better. But it gives a hope with the take over of new management team. But it will be a big tough task for them. Power Bills are a huge problem.
response from property -Hello Reddy, I am so sorry to hear that you have had a poor experience. I'm Kristie from the Customer Service department and I appreciate hearing your feedback. Since we acquired ownership of the community we have been working hard toward making improvements and I thank you for your patience during this time.

Has been much worse since new ownership submitted by Lindsey S. - |Recommended: Nowe were happy but since the new ownership the grounds are not taken care of, there have been several issues with getting packages, and utilities bills have doubled with no explanation even when requested. We are no longer story all impressed with the community.
Maitenancesubmitted by Nathalie R. - |Recommended: YesMy family and I have lived here for a few years now, we have been through 3 different owners of the property and I have to say that since weidner has taken over improvements have been made. The maitenance guy that took care of our work order was great better then any other that's ever came to our apartment he exceeded my expectations. He came by the same day that I put work order in and addressed all of my concerns and more. Also the people at office are really nice and always helpful. I just want to say a big thank you to all the staff here.
response from property -Hello Nathalie, I am so glad to hear that our maintenance team is exceeding your expectations! We value hearing your feedback along with your residency and thank you for continuing to choose to make your home here with us at the Desert Horizon community. Kind regards, Kristie - Weidner Customer Service
NAsubmitted by Timothy S. - |Recommended: YesIt would be better to have an assigned parking spot in front of the apartment. There seem to be available parking spaces right in front of the apartment. But, all in all it is very quiet and a pleasant place thus far.
