Great but not cheap

The staff is friendly, the amenities are excellent, and the units are top quality! I absolutely recommend living here if you want to be close enough to the medical campus (~10 min drive) while still feeling like you’re away from the hustle and bustle of a college town. The rent is on the high side, but with a roommate it is totally worth it.

Quiet and Convenient Community

Well maintained apartments with responsive management. Amenities are kept up well, and the complex is quiet with walking paths. Lots of couples and young families. Apartments are clean and spacious with basic finishes. Would recommend to students looking for a convenient alternative to 9th street. A car is a must for this complex.

Garrett West is a great place for couples and dogs

Garrett West is not far from Duke University but is located in a quaint community with many Duke students. It is a very dog-friendly complex, with many places to walk your dog and a small dog park. Management is responsive to upkeep concerns, hosts events with residents to ensure the community is engaged, and ensures that service is timely and high quality. The three-story buildings have solid A/C and decent noise mitigation. It's a relatively quiet community overall. Overall, I'd stay here indefinitely, but it will be time to move on soon for greener pastures.

Great location for family in a proximity of many groceries

A lot of families live in the apartment, which was very good for my kid to find friends to play with at the playground. This place is also in a good location to Target, Walmart, Harris Teeter, Fresh Market, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, etc.

Great if you're willing to drive

Love my apartment - beautiful living space, maintenance is always very responsive, the pool area is lovely, and the cost is reasonable. Good location about halfway between downtown Chapel Hill and Durham, not gated but have always felt safe here. The downsides: 1) gym is small compared to other Durham complexes, and 2) you have to have a car for the ~10 min drive to campus, and to get to nearby grocery stores, etc.

Beautiful and reasonably-priced

I love Garrett west! Chapel hilo and downtown Durham are both approx 15 min away. You definitely need a car to get to school though (so then you’ll need to purchase a parking pass). But a perk of living further away is that you can get a better-quality apartment for a more affordable price.

Garrett West

It's a little more expensive than Alden and the other properties next to it, but keep an eye on the website for deals! I got a cheaper apartment than Alden, and it's a lot nicer. The maintenance always does everything o. The day of too. Love it here!
