DO NOT apply here!! i left a damage deposit with <removed> the landlady and when i found another apartment before she approved me, i called her and she had said she'd just excepted me and already taken down the add and was about to call my references (in that order). She then proceeded to tell me she will be keeping my damage deposit until the apartment is rented. this was early nov. its now jan 30 and the second time i have called her asking for it and she blows up on me and hangs up. not a nice lady one bit!

Don't get distracted by the "innocent" lady or the flowers. It is run down, the plumbing sucks and so does the heat(boiler type), its either hot or cold, no in between ; very disruptive at times( you can hear everything happening outside, esp if its wet out), has no tenant or guest parking unless you want to pay $75 for an old, run down garage that is hard to open. The laundry and storage locker is okay but the worst part of staying here is the landlady herself.

From the start of your move, she is checking what you're bringing into the apartment, whether its in your suitcase or box and telling you what can and cannot bring into the apartment (no tools, some furniture, no big storage bins) oh BTW, if you have too much stuff, as determined by her or stuff she doesn't like she tells you it's either a fire hazard or illegal and you have to get rid of it. -- Like seriously, it's worse than airport security.

Don't be fooled by the nice flowers and decorative pots out in front of this place! It is old(100+ years), not very good plumbing or heating(hot water-boiler type), either too hot or too cold ; very noisy( you can hear the St. Mary's traffic day and night, especially when it's wet and rainy out side), has no tenant or guest parking unless you want to pay for $75 for an ancient, dilapidated garage that is hard to open. The laundry and storage locker is okay but the worst part of staying here is the landlord/owner/caretaker herself.

From the very start of your move in, she is checking what you are bringing into the apartment (that's right! Going through your boxes of stuff) and telling you what can and cannot bring into the apartment (tools are a definite No-No, bigger size rubber maid boxes, some furniture, etc.) She wants to know what time you are moving anything into the apartment so she can pad or as she calls it plaster the door and walls to protect them, I think she just wants to know what you have in your apartment : oh and by the way FYI, if you have too much stuff, as determined by her or stuff she doesn't like she tells you it is a Fire Hazard and you have to get rid of it.

So the morale of this story is " Never rent an apartment when the owner/landlord is living directly below you and is on your ass 24/7 !!! "
