I need an apartment for about 6-12 months. I will be working in Brunsick, GA.

I have found apartments in Kingsland and Brunswick. My price range is %600-$750 per month for a 1-2 bedroom.

Is the north vs. south of brunwick any safer than the next? Or are there certain areas to find that may be safer...

Kingsland seems to be a military type town. crime statistics show that Brunswick as a whole is a high crime area and Kingsland is a bit above the US average. However, depending on the web site this can be a mixed bag.

I've asked some of the rep.'s at the apartments over the phone how the area is and they simply say that they can't tell me because they are not allowed to provide a false sense of security. Is this true or should I beware... Some did say that I would be happy there, but they are sales people...

I'm looking to compile of short list of possible places and head down this weekend and hopefully find one that is acceptable.

Something relatively new and clean, with nearby shopping and above all a place I would feel comfortable going out at night with the family.

Have you considered St Simons Island? It's just 5 miles across the causeway from Brunswick.There are a couple of apartment complexes here that are very nice, and right now you can find some great deals on condo rentals...and the island is quite safe. The icing on the cake is that you can bike to the beach.

I'm sitting in the Starbucks next to the apartments referenced below. They look very nice, and the location (center of the island's main shopping district) is great. You would be about 15 min from Brunswick.

I tried the phone number listed on the web to get pricing, but got a message that it was disconnected.

My wife and I stayed on St. Simmons Island about 2 weeks ago and it was nice, however everything seemed more expensive. I just need a safe, clean place to live temporarily. No need for easy beach access or anything right now.

We are thinking of living in Yulee once we permanently move down that way. But for the next several months, I would consider areas in brunswick and surrounding areas that would be safe places to live. I'm not much into the historic type of places and would like somewhere that would have access to shopping at walmart, target and the like.

I'm considering Odyssey Lake apartments in Brunswick, GA. They are supposed to be new and in a rural area on the north side of Brunswick near Exit 42 of I-95.

Anyone stay hear or familiar with this area? They said it's a quiet, secluded area and there is a Walmart/Target, etc. nearby.

Yes, the area is quite safe and is located near 'The Spur', which is where just about all of Brunswick's 'big box' retail is located.
