The landlord of this property uses his management staff to harass you to force you to move out. He uses the on site day shift staff from Monday to Thursday to harass whomsoever they are targeting as the money maker cash cow suites on floors 6, 5, and 4. They will break in and police involvement is necessary. 24/7 personal surveillance is the only way to hold them accountable for harassment. The owner does this in order to get cash and keep the full rent and deposit, essentially a scam. The day after moving in on the second day of renting the harassment will begin. Knocking at all hours from 8 am to late evening, and unlocking your door without consent and without good reason. Landlord harassment is the willing creation, by a landlord or his agents, of conditions that are uncomfortable for one or more tenants in order to induce willing abandonment of a rental contract. Such a strategy is often sought because it avoids costly legal expenses and potential problems with eviction. What I experienced was nothing more than "pure hell". I will regret having fallen for their scam at this building, and am writing this in order to save others from experiencing being scammed and taken for a rental that won't even last barely a few days the harassment is so severe. Hope to save anyone thinking of giving cash to this rental at Parkview Towers, Harwood Group.

Sadly it is true that bed bugs are here, throughout the building. Management from Friday to Sunday the phillipino lady is normal, the rental manager <removed>, on Monday to Thursday is very disrespectful in nature, and does not respect tenants boundaries such as coming into units unannounced, and going in when she believes the renter isn't home she will go into the units and take peoples belongings. If the kind, normal phillipino worked full time there it would be a better place. The neighbors on certain floors do have problematic mental health issues such as paranoia and drug use. Such neighbors as this are what make renters flee, as the neighbors like this call 911 say for you their neighbor watching an action movie and say they hear something they just call 911. Imagine sitting comfortably on your couch and watching a movie; the neighbor having symptoms of paranoia call 911 on you every time you watch an action movie. If you can avoid renting there and save yourself the trouble, and costly fees as you won't last a week anyways and I regret to say VRBO would have been cheaper.

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.
