We live at SunBay since 4 months now and we can’t complain in any way. Susan, Jenn, and Stacey are all very kind and try to help wherever they can to make your stay at SunBay perfect. The application process in the beginning was fast, so that we were able to move in almost right away. Thanks again for that! When we moved to our apartment in the third floor, there were just some smaller issues. But after telling Susan, these issues were addressed one day later :-) The landscape this apartment complex is located in is absolutely great. It is surrounded by trees and even has a little duck pond. Furthermore, SunBay has two pools. One bigger one and one smaller one. Both are always well-kept and clean :-) Nice places to relax! To conclude, we like living here a lot! The staff (especially Susan, Jenn, Jimi and Stacey) is always friendly and helpful!
