Resident Reviews

submitted by Irene R. - |Recommended: YesIt is a great place — It's safe, quiet, clean, great maintenance of green areas, great maintenance of the apartments, quick responses from the staff, it was a very good experience overall. My only complaint is having to pay the same or more than the others for a significantly smaller bedroom, bedrooms should be all the same size or a special price for the small one. The small room is very limited in space.
response from property -Thank you, Irene! We love our resident guests, and it shows :)

submitted by Astrid S. - |Recommended: YesMy Experience at the Villas — Great town house. Loved having my own bathroom. Place was clean and spacious. Some of the light bulbs went out, and the stove sometimes gave us problems. But compared to other places in state college The Villas are a great place to stay. You also get free visitor parking which is great.
response from property -Thank you so much for the review! We are happy to hear that you've enjoyed living at The VIllas. Our maintenance staff is always happy to fix any issues. We don't see any requests to fix issues with your stove. Please do not ever hesitate to reach out to us. We love to keep our property at it's best--it' part of our stellar service :)
submitted by Colette K. - |Recommended: YesAwesome for someone looking for an offcampus apartment — I enjoy living here. The staff are always friendly and willing to sit down and have a talk about any issues you may have. The roommate matching isn't too far off, and I was blessed lastyear to have an amazing roommate, whom I still keep in contact with. The price is lower than most places downtown, and It is not that far from downtown as an off campus apartment maybe 8 mins The overall look of the apartments is clean, and nicely put together. There are always landscapers and matenance staff around making sure everything is appealing. I would reccommend this complex to any student looking to be away from all the chaos.
response from property -Thank you so much for your kind words! We sure do love our resident guests <3
submitted by Aubrey F. - |Recommended: YesTwo thumbs up — You should consider living at the Villas, the rent is cheap, the apartments are nice, and the staff are amazing
response from property -Thanks so much, Aubrey! This community is AMAZING, and we're grateful to be a part of it!!
submitted by Amanda D. - |Recommended: NoSome pros and some cons — The electric bills can be rather pricy and the smell outside is absolutely horrendous. There is a nearby sewage plant that causes the smell. I was not aware of this when I agreed to live at this location. The inside is very nice aside from the normal wear and tear of a rented unit wall scuff marks, stains on carpet .
response from property -Thank you so much for your review! We agree that the water treatment facility has been challenging this year as they were upgrading the facility and the waste was uncovered. The good news is that the facility has received its final part for the new processing equipment, and the smell has been mitigated :) Electricity can be expensive, especially during cold Pennsylvania winters. To help, residents can follow tips provided by West Penn Power, such as only using cold wash cycles for laundry, not using the drying cycle on the dishwasher, and being sure the HVAC fan is set to "auto" instead of "on." We're certainly glad that you enjoy the units, and we hope that with the smell mitigated that the rest of your time with us is a pleasant one :)
submitted by Haley P. - |Recommended: YesAffordable place to live — Villas is very affordable to live in. The one downside is the size of the rooms and the lack of storage space. Walls are very thin and can easily hear all neighbors. There is also a bad smell that lingers through the property on occasion.
response from property -Thank you, Haley! We are excited to have the work being done by the Joint Authority coming to a close soon, which will eliminate the smell. We love having a convenient and affordable community for our residents :)
submitted by David A. - |Recommended: YesA Quiet Community with Professional Service — The community is very quiet and you always have your own personal space. Any service you need to ask for, be it maintenance or just asking general questions are handled by staff who are very helpful and can get you answers ans solutions in a timely manner.
response from property -Thank you so much, David! We love our resident guests, and it shows :)
submitted by Takara R. - |Recommended: YesClean, relatively new fixtures, quiet, great parking. — I thoroughly enjoy it-- significantly better than places I lived during my undergraduate years downtown while at school at PSU.
response from property -We thoroughly enjoy having you as a member of the Villas community! Thank you so much, Takara!!
submitted by Erika F. - |Recommended: YesGood deal for the money — Overall great deal for what you pay for. Lots of parking, good quality fixtures appliances, helpful staff.
response from property -We love our community, and you are a great addition! Thank you so much for your kind words, Erika :)
submitted by Mira P. - |Recommended: YesGreat place to live — It's great to live here. No noise from neighbors.
response from property -Thank you so much, Mira. We love the community at The Villas at Happy Valley :)
submitted by Kristine S. - |Recommended: YesLove it — If I wasn't graduating this year, I would definitely stay for another year. The price is perfect for the accommodations and convenience with the bus route and stores nearby. I paid 300 more last year and had a smaller room, shared a bathroom, and had a kitchen with outdated appliances. The Villas is the exact opposite of this and being 10 minutes away from campus allows me to escape the hustle and bustle when I need to but have easy access when I want it I really love living here
response from property -It's so nice to hear back from our resident guests that we're delivering on our promise at The Villas at Happy Valley! Congratulations on the next steps you're taking, Kristine! We love having you in our community :)
submitted by Frank C. - |Recommended: YesSatisfied — Excellent place to live if you know your roommates. This place is inexpensive in comparison to 90 of State College, and you definitely get what you pay for.
