Saltmeadow Bay Apartments: Off Base Apartment Complex

Review

"Saltmeadow Bay Apartments"

I have loved living at Saltmeadow Bay. Having the office and maintenance staff available when I need help with something, especially during my husband's frequent deployments is wonderful and they are pretty responsive. There is a gate at both entrances but sometimes it is left up and it's just an unmanned crossbar, but the buildings are also locked, and there are a lot of people around so I feel safe. One issue is that our upstairs neighbors are insanely loud sometimes. My two-year-old calls them the "Elephants upstairs". I don't know about the schools because my daughter isn't old enough yet. There is a public park with a playground and walking path behind the property but it's kind of secluded and there is a group of quiet, seemingly homeless people that camp out at the end opposite the playground. They are doing a lot of upgrades to the units now like stainless steel appliances and nice fixtures, so ask to see the exact unit you will get.

Pros Cons
  1. pool, gym, and clubhouse for resident use
  2. Great location! walkable to the beach (about 20 mins) and two grocery stores, boardwalk shopping, starbucks, art museum, Short drive to lots of shopping
  3. responsive staff most of the time
  4. friendly neighbors
  1. no on-property outdoor space for kids
  2. weirdly shallow sinks
  3. dog poop in the grass all the time
  4. sometimes they don't notify you of packages delivered to the office for several days

  • Safety:
  • Location to Base:

Price: N/A

  • Pet Friendly: Yes
  • Recommended: Yes
  • Recommendations: Virginia Beach is just a great place to live. It's relaxed but there is a ton to do for families. I love the Oceanfront neighborhood but it can be kind of tourist-y for some people. Bay Colony is a nearby neighborhood that's a nicer with bigger houses and Redmill is another family-friendly area of town with a suburban feel. I hear pretty good things about public schools in Virginia Beach, but haven't had personal experience with them.
  • Appearance: gated,neighborhood parks,well manicured with grass cut,neighborhood pool,looks uniform,curbs,common areas maintained,suburban

  • Happy Hour Spot: lots of spots, but I haven't been to them
  • Gym / Fitness: Wareings Gym, YMCA
  • Shopping: Target, Hilltop Shopping Center
  • Doctors: I've only used bade doctors so far, Konikoff Dentistry is great

Additional Information
