Hi All -

We are relocating in January from NJ and need to rent a 3 bdrm apartment for 6 months. Any recommendations on complexes close to RTP? We were thinking that we want to be in the Morrisville area. We have 2 small children. We thought about Camden Westwood and Legends at Preston but read some bad write-ups on them.

Thanks!
Jennifer

My friends that live at Camden Westwood and Legends-at-Preston all have good things to say about them. Or at least haven't said anything terrible. Most have renewed their leases (or moved into a house that they had purchased). Also check out Crabtree Crossing, Bexley at Preston and I believe there are apartments at Carpenter Village as well.

You may find some private smaller homes/townhouses for rent in the Carpenter Village area, too, unless you really prefer to be in an apartment complex. Try looking at Block & Associates Rentals -- the site is easy to navigate, and there are listings in/around Morrisville. I think you can access their site via nchomerentals.

I live in Carpenter Village, and there are lots of nice young families here with children of all ages. I am within easy walking distance to a branch of the public library, and there are a number of good elementary schools here.

There are also good re-sales in the neighborhood, and some of the families have had to rent their homes in the past several months due to the market right now. You may luck into a nice place to call 'home' without moving into a complex, if you want more options.

We rented a three-bedroom townhome with an attached two-car garage at Olde Townes at Carpenter Village, and were very happy in the apartment for the year we were there -- except for the new management that took over (we just found them rude in the office). Still, my only dealings with them was to drop off the month's rent, so I had little to do with them. The apartments were relatively new and well-maintained, and what little things I did need addressed were no problem with the maintenance crew.

Camden Westwood
Marquis
Oaks at Weston
Preston's Reserve
Bexley

All of those are in the area. There are others, but those are the ones I remember.

Also look into Courtney Reserve (Cary Park area). I haven't lived there but I live in the Cary Park and reaching Credit Suisse using back roads is a 5-15 min ride depending on what time you are traveling.

As always, refer to aptratings.com for apt. reviews. The negative reviews are the first to be put there, but that's what I was interested in anyways.

In addition to the neighborhoods mentioned above, there always seem to be a few houses for rent in Breckenridge in Morrisville (look up Parkside Valley Dr in your favorite mapping software). It's very close to RTP - just off Davis, 5-10 minutes south of RTP into Wake County. I have no idea of the price range, but the neighborhood has a range from town homes to 3000 sq ft houses, so you might find something in that would fit.

Default Try Southern Oaks at Davis Park

Brand new community at Davis & Hopson. I just moved there and it is a very short drive. Anything that will keep me off the highways is a good thing!
