We have really enjoyed our time at Sandpiper. We live in one of their two bedroom town homes. It's really awesome to have a garage. The maintenance guys and management have been awesome both with any service calls, and with regular maintenance.
I had a problem with my AC, they responded the next day and it was fixed promptly.
I've never had any incidents with crime or break in's.
There is another review (in all caps) that I feel is way off from how it is. Yes, they have you pay for your utilities. Why wouldn't you pay for your gas? or water?
Overall we enjoyed the time we spent at sandpiper. In the end though, they increased rent each year and priced us out of the apartment. We now own and pay close to the same price we would have for rent. I felt like I was targeted to leave so that they could remodel the unit and get even more rent. The fact that we paid rent on time for three years, never late, never any issues, seemed to not count for much of anything. Neither did being clean and not abusing the unit.
