    Any advice is great (Va people)

    Advertisements
    We have been looking at apartments for over a month now. We won't make any major decisions until May, but we really are looking at Reflections or Runaway Bay. I think they are by the same owner, but has anyone lived in/know someone who lived in either of these? Or anyone know of a better place around the same price or cheaper than these places that are good?

    that's what me and dh are thinking of doing, since I believe doing that would be sooo much cheaper than renting a 2 bedroom apartment

    reflections has a cute little gym and it kinda feels like its in a foresty area. lots of trees, its quiet, there is an elementary school on the other side of s.lynnhaven though(right across from the complex) and the cops are always out there in the moring catching speeders.

    i would really really suggest you stay away from both complexes on bonny rd.(thalia gardens and woodshire) and near the ocean front. (crime and lotsssss of drugs)


    Marinia Shores is another nice complex.

    i would really suggest this. housing is as cheap/ maybe a little more expensive but its worth it. real estate agents get paid by the landlord not the people looking for a home so its basically free to have an agent help you look.

    I do not like Runaway Bay. My parents have lived across the street from the Reflections for 27 years now and LOVE the area. There are amazing walking trails and the area is safe. ( I can say this from personal experience)
