Hello, All. I'm planning to relocate to Lake Mary area due to business reasons. I was looking over the internet and found two apartments that seem to be good (colonial grand at townpark and Legends Lake Mary). It seems like colonial grand at townpark is closer to malls, bars, etc. It's also a little cheaper than Legends. However looking at apartmentratings.com there are people complaining about bad maintenance and bugs such as lots of cockroaches at Colonial Grand. If you lived at colonial grand (Lake Mary), I would appreciate your opinion if the "bugs story" is really true or not. I would also appreciate information comparing the two apartments. Thank you very much.

They are both in good locations. I've heard good stuff about both, but never lived there. Try these also Dexters, Liams, The Vineyard and Publix at your Doorstep! (http://orlando.craigslist.org/apa/2263165647.html - broken link) These are nice too and in a good location. I used to dogsit there. I've been in them before and they are clean and newer looking. They have granite countertops and washer and dryer. It's located by lots of entertainment, shops, restaurants, grocery store, bank, and more. Colonial Town Park - Lake Mary, FL

Ignore apartment ratings websites which are quite possibly the most irrelevant websites out there. As a renter, what is the incentive to leave positive reviews about an apartment community? Any crackpot can leave a rotten review after being evicted or losing a deposit because one broke the lease or damaged the unit. As an FYI, you're at the mercy of your neighbors when renting in Florida when it comes to cockroaches. If you have a neighbor who doesn't clean, leaves food out, etc. you better believe you're going to see cockroaches in your unit also, regardless of the demographics of the community. It's up to the renter to communicate with management so the can take a tactical approach with the exterminators to help eradicate the issue, which should involve a management walk through to determine which unit is the source of the infestation. Wherever you wind up I would recommend investing in a few Riddex ultrasonic repellers ( at Bed Bath and Beyond for $14.99 each). They plug into your outlets and they work as long as you're vigilant about keeping the place clean. Good luck!

Hi,
I have recently moved to lake Mary and I live in 'colonial grand at lake Mary' . I love it so far. It's close to everything and a very safe neighborhood. We are almost near heathrow. Heathrow is just 0.2 miles from where I live and lake Mary is a li'l far like 3-4 miles.
I am looking to make some friends here.
Pls let me know if you need any info about this place.
Thanks
