Great location, close to Georgetown, a little expensive
This building is very secure with 24-hour concierge service. It is very close to campus. However, it is an expensive rent.
Good apart from management
The management is pretty sub par - they’re hard to get ahold of and like to try and tack on extra fees. The building though is really nice and affordable, close to a park, and right next to an ART bus stop that goes to Rosslyn metro. It’s a 15 minute walk to the Rosslyn metro as well for nicer days. Overall it’s been a good spot.
Close to campus.
The usual problems living in a large apartment complex - some pests, thin walls, etc.
Excellent place to live - but pricey
Great office staff, lovely environment, well-kept, but on the expensive end. The rent price increases the longer the apartment is available, so keep and eye out for newly-listed apartments.
It's a little far from campus but a great building just 3 minutes from the Takoma metro station. Can be pricey.
Great building, good location, but management is not great
Beautiful apartments near campus with amenities!
Jamestown Rock Springs (formerly called Gables Rock Springs) is a beautiful complex <1 mile from campus with nice, spacious and reasonably affordable apartments, great amenities (pool, gym, trash valet, parking), and a kind management staff. The complex recently changed management to another company (Jamestown), but assuming nothing changes this is a great place for singles, couples, or roommates who want a nice living space near campus and can pay a little more than some of the other complexes nearby. They also allow pets!
Gables Rock Springs
I think that Gables Rock Springs is a great place to live! The highlight of the property is its affordability, the location (close to Midtown), and
the upkeep of the units/property. I chose to live here specifically because the 2BR/2BA model has two bedrooms that are equal in size with attached bathrooms which was rare amongst the apartments in the area (most have one master suite with another bedroom that has a detached bathroom). There are a lot of pets in the area and I frequently see people walking their dogs, which I love. My only complaint would be that there isn't much (stores, etc.) that are walking distance and I have to drive/bus to just about everything. On the flip side, we are very close to Ponce De Leon and midtown is only a few minutes away. Another complaint would be that the power has gone out three times, but I think that this has more to do with GA Power than it does with the apartment management.
Affordable, decent amenities
Good for the budget. Slightly awkward that laundry is inside of someone's bedroom, makes doing laundry more of a hassle. Management is not very responsive and is always doing in-home checks without much notice. Downstairs bedroom is much lower temp than upstairs bedrooms. Car got broken into in parking lot.
Gables River Oaks Review
Great amenities and location in uptown!
Absolutely great--would definitely recommend!
True one bedroom at a great value
This is a great property for those looking for a less expensive option. It’s very central so a great location, 10 minutes from campus and walking distance to Katy Trail. Amenities include the gym and pool. It’s a true one bedroom but rather small and in an older building.
Gables West Avenue
Realistically - the property is slightly on the older side, but is probably the best location for someone in the MBA program and is very affordable (at least for the area). Would highly recommend living here due to being across the street from Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. Furthermore, the most popular bar scene, West 6th, is less than a 5 minute walk. This place is a must consider for those who like to go out and want to be in the happening area. There are 4 apartments leased by current 1Y's in the building, with many more in the surrounding buildings.
Best location in town
GPP sits just on the edge of downtown and just seconds away from the Town Lake trail. It's great for pet owners with lots of green space nearby and those who love to be outside. It's also a short walk away from many of the bars/restaurants you will frequent in a post-COVID world. I could not recommend this place enough for pet owners and couples.
