Hello all,

I'm looking to relocate from Temple Terrace to be closer to my job in the Westshore Business District. I was looking at places in Egypt Lake and South Tampa, and I was wondering if anyone has lived in the following apartments and could give any input on them.

In Egypt Lake, I was looking at Beach Club, Lake Pointe, or Pinetree Apartments.
In South Tampa, I was looking at The Cove Apartments or Infinity Westshore.

I would prefer to save money and live in Egypt Lake, but I have heard that there is a lot of crime and that it isn't safe at night. Is this true? If that's the case then I'd rather spend a little more to live in South Tampa. I've also seen some nice places close to the job like Millennium and Visconti, but they're currently outside of my price range. I need a 2 bed, 2 bath for less than $1600/month.

If anyone has lived at the above apartments or the Egypt Lake area in general and can share their experience, I would greatly appreciate it.

I have a friend that lives in one off Himes and near Busch Blvd. I think its called Grande Oasis and its gated with a security guard. Try that one out. Crime im not sure about, but that complex has walking trails, pools, and other amenities.

We actually toured a studio size apt at Beach Club. It wasn't too bad actually.The property itself was well kept and it's location right on the lake was a nice feature.It seemed like a nice quiet place as opposed to the constant commotion of nearby Town & Country.The leasing managers were some of the friendliest we've come across.The property has a pool if that's important to you & laundry facilities in a separate building. South Tampa has its nice neighborhoods but you might want to avoid living too close to Dale Mabry.We learned that the hard way as there was traffic and large truck noise 24/7.I felt fairly safe in South Tampa as a female and went out at night alone to run errands without any problems.The worst thing you might encounter is the panhandlers in Briton Plaza near Publix or e excessive use of spandex at Sprouts
