Reviewer says...
This building has been a disappointment: At first I loved it. It has original 1960s charm with a great view of the ocean - unfortunately this does not compensate for the negative experience I've had renting here.
#1: This should have been the first warning sign - the building required a payment to APPLY to rent. This is not legal.
#2: Laundry costs $2.25 to wash, and another $2.25 to dry. The machines are outdated - the washer has ruined all of my white laundry, and the driers do not dry a regular load. The building charges $20 non-refundable for a laundry card, and the machine charges a fee if you add money to your laundry card via credit card. The laundry card machine also breaks down intermittently.
#3: The electrical is not updated, and the entire kitchen and living room run on one fuse. The building charges a premium for replacement fuses. Electricity is not included in the cost of rent. #4: Single-pane windows become unbearably hot in the summer months, and the windows are hinged horizontally, which makes installing air conditioning next to impossible.
#5: The front door is always wedged open and the mail room was broken into. This resulted in the mail service being delayed by two weeks.
#6: The building has bedbugs and they hire a company with no website or available information. I had the misfortune of encountering bedbugs in my suite and had some questions regarding procedure; The management told me that the pest control company has no phone number and that I could not call them with questions. Management was also misinformed and ignorant regarding prevention and treatment procedures. No inspection report was provided for the treatment. No information about neighbouring apartments being treated.

It is heartbreaking to have to move again, but this building's (mis)handling of the bedbug problem has forced me to look elsewhere. I was compelled to write this review for others to read that may be considering this building.

There is a permanent "Vacancy" sign on the front lawn, and now I understand why.
This review is solely the opinion of the reviewer and not of RentItOrNot.
