Resident Reviews

Perfect good quality and no hassles with managementsubmitted by Kalpana P. - |Recommended: Yesit's very peaceful.
Wonderfully comfortable living, yet expensivesubmitted by Cory H. - |Recommended: YesEverything about River Oaks is great. The common areas as well maintained. The 1 bed bath apartment has a functional and cozy layout. River Oaks is situated near all the amenities you will ever need. A grocery store across the street and a shopping center just up the road. The only downside to all these wonderful things is that River Oaks is very pricey.
Great Location submitted by Cassidy H. - |Recommended: YesGreat location for apartments- real close to both food and pleasure shopping. Easy to get to anywhere in Austin do to location of roads. The office staff are super nice and helpful- even when they don't know the answers and have to go look them up. The new management since July 14, 2015 is super effective and moving towards a greener future for River Oaks. There are a lot of benefits to living here. Neighbors are nice, but no real sense of community like every other apartment complex. Parking is a nightmare and there is barely enough room for those who live here, much less if you have any guests. I have had to park outside the gates a few times. The gates have broken a lot with the terrible weather lately, but they are super quick to fix them within a week . Rent is about average for the area.
Cozy South Austin Livingsubmitted by Claire S. - |Recommended: YesGreat units, amenities, complex and area in general. Traffic can be a pain at the WC Brodie intersection, so try to avoid during rush hour. Nice being across from HEB and Sunset Valley shopping. 3rd floor 2B 2B has tall ceilings, upgraded kitchen, really nice cozy space. Lots of natural light and the balcony is a bonus. Had issue with promptness of maintenance staff, otherwise admin staff very friendly and helpful when addressing concerns.
First Apartment Complex Experiencesubmitted by Summer J. - |Recommended: YesFairly quiet it's off a busy road so not much you can do there and close to downtown I have been pleasantly surprised with this apartment complex. We have rented homes previously and when we moved to Austin, that wasn't immediately an option. The staff is very responsive, helpful and knowledgeable. The maintenance staff responds very quickly and does a good job. The apartment itself was just ok - low quality paint, windows and carpet but can't complain too much. There is rarely enough parking spots because of the covered parking spots that you can pay to use. No one does so the other spots get congested. I wish Lincoln would take the covered parking out and have regular spots for all tenants. Overall we've enjoyed living here and would recommend it to a friend.
Secluded woodsy area in very convenient location. very nice.submitted by Sarah Y. - |Recommended: YesGreat
Improvingsubmitted by Rudy G. - |Recommended: NoFinding a place to park your vehicle can be a challenge.
Great location and service from management. Lacking noise barrier to neighbors.submitted by Josh G. - |Recommended: YesProperty management and employees are great to deal with. They are very attentive, respectful, and follow through on their commitments. With that said, I live next to the pool and many of the neighbors are disrespectful. They use the pool after 10 pm, drink and smoke stuff, and get loud. Very annoying if you work early in the morning and or have children that go to sleep early. I have talked to both management staffs new management since June 2015 and this is an issue they are not motivated to handle. I expected the days to be noisy and busy but not afterhours by the pool. The apartments are not well insulated, you can hear your neighbor easily. I think the property is plenty pleasant, it speaks for itself, you be the judge. Overall, I have recommended it to others that are now leasing here and will continue in the future, just not by the pool.
Quiet complex, no big issues.submitted by Melody C. - |Recommended: YesIt is a comfortable complex to live in. We have had no large issues. Since the new management took over we have not really had the opportunity to get to know the new team yet.
Nice Communitysubmitted by Becky C. - |Recommended: YesI have lived here almost a year. I am impressed with the staff responsiveness. The new owners have spent a lot of time and effort fixing up landscaping and the entry gates. Some work could be done cleaning up the work out room and making sure that the recycling is picked up around the dumpsters. I almost never hear my neighbors, as the construction of the buildings is solid. Overall, not a bad place to live.
River Oaks Rocks since New Managementsubmitted by Marilyn J. - |Recommended: YesI've been here for over four years and have always liked it here. The last several years everything began to decline but now that The New Owners and Management have taken over I am very pleased and happy. There are a lot of things happening around here to update and upgrade the property As well as the lawn getting watered again. One of the main attractions when I moved in was the Beatifully kept Grounds. It was looking pretty sad but I can see that is changing for the better. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an apartment to move into.
Things are getting better with new management.submitted by Luis G. - |Recommended: YesYes, now that there is new management.
response from property -Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We are working hard to improve lots of areas around the community!
Aesthetically pleasing, but needs to be re-vampedsubmitted by Ali S. - |Recommended: NoLiving here is okay, it's just that the building seems to be wearing out. I've had to call maintenance more times in the last five months then I ever had to last year at another property, and it's genially frustrating when things keep malfunctioning. Amenities are great like the gym and pool, and the grounds always look well kept. I enjoy the tranquility of the property, seldom to I hear my neighbors romping around, or street traffic.
response from property -Thanks for the honest feedback. I'm sorry that you've had a higher number of service request calls recently. Give our office a call if there is anything else that still needs attention so we can take care of it for you.
The property is great other than I think an elephant lives above me. submitted by Jim M. - |Recommended: YesI would tell them that it is a very nice place to live. If they want an apartment life, they should consider River Oaks.
response from property -I'm glad that you are enjoying living at River Oaks! Give our office a call if you'd like to discuss the neighbor noise and will see what we can do.
It's a very nice and enjoyable place to live in.submitted by Joel G. - |Recommended: YesI enjoy the living in an area that is surrounded by woods and trees. I like that it is so close to running and bike trails. I especially like that it is close to downtown Austin so if ever I want to go for fun it isn't too far away.
