|Recommended: YesWell planned and well maintained serviced apartment units — I live in a beautiful, quaint apartment complex called Colony Oaks . Love my decision to move-in here. Perfect neighborhood, close proximity to major roads, shopping complex, restaurants and health-care.
|Recommended: YesGood and Peaceful Apartments — Apartments are very close to many grocery stores and very near to US-1. On the exterior view, have very spacious surroundings, many parking lots, Gym swimming pool facilities. There is also small kids play area. On the interior side, unit layout is very spacious and good when compared to other apartments but have old appliances and uneven floor that makes noise when you walk even if your unit is in ground floor with carpet.
|Recommended: YesLiterally the best place that I've ever lived — If you want a safe, beautiful, pleasurable place to live, live here. Colony Oaks offers the best value for what they offer in an apartment. The complex has been here for several years has many new upgrades. You get heat, hot water gas all included in your rent. The electric bill is very low. Considering that you will also have a full size dishwasher, washer and dryer in your unit, your rent becomes very affordable. The apartments are very spacious, some with new appliances cabinetry, each apartment has its own patio. The grounds are beautiful well kept, the addition of a new clubhouse with pool table kitchen, a 24 hr gym room, a new playground, the existing pool which is only open during the summer patio lounge seating , a grilling area make the extra amenity fee worth the price. There is a tennis court which needs immediate updating, but that is one of the few drawbacks. The neighbors are friendly and there is a large family pet friendly community here. The noise level is low very quiet peaceful at night. Parking is unreserved and plentiful. I always get parking near my building day or night it is very convenient for your guests. The lots are cleared quickly after snow. Maintenance responds very quickly efficiently. The management staff is professional friendly. The complex is very close to shopping recreation. The main drawback is the area traffic. Turning out of the complex onto Finnegans Lane then onto RT- 1 can be very problematic during peak driving times, but that has no bearing on Colony Oaks. During off peak, the drive to the NJ Turnpike Garden State Parkway is 10-15 mins. If you can adjust to the heavy traffic during peak hours you'll be fine. And you'll have an affordable, serene place to live
|Recommended: YesProperty is good but promise is not fulfilled — I have issues with my refrigerator when I move in its been 3 months refrigerator is not been replaced I reached multiple times to maintenance office, they always promise to replace but nobody come here to replace. However if there are issues in apartment maintenance come and fix immediately.

|Recommended: YesThe property is well maintained and home-y — It's quiet and peaceful.
|Recommended: YesNice Society to stay in... — Its a nice place to stay.Recently moved in , even though society is a bit old like all NJ apartments , the apartment was given to me with all the new appliances and also rooms and floors were redecorated and were as good as completely new. The maintenance requests are resolved immediately, never ever had a problem with that. The response time is good. The only issue is with the heaters which stop working from april even though its cold outside. There is no other option but to buy heaters personally. Other than this problem, its good ,affordable place to stay in.
|Recommended: YesLease breaking process — Lease breaking process is not good. Other neighborhood community has the concept of probation and relaxation on lease breakage clause. Other than this it was really a pleasant stay in this community.
|Recommended: YesIt's a decent apartment complex, but a bit expensive. — The apartments are spacious enough, with lot of storage areas. The balcony is huge, exactly the way I wanted. The maintenance service is great and available all throughout the weekend with good response time, that is really awesome. Although, the apartments are old and if you are living on the first floor, you can hear the footstep noise a lot from the second floor, and if they have dog then good luck. I find that apartments are rated expensive compared to overall experience surrounding, appearance, noise are the factors . But overall, its a decent apartment, especially that it is close to lot of locations like grocery, entertainment etc. I would recommend this apartment but will also mention the downsides.
|Recommended: YesBest apartment at best location — After searching around many places around North Brunswick, we chose this apartments. Let me first talk about the advantages of being here. 1. Amazing location - You have everything closer to your home. Yes. Just everything under 10 minutes drive. Target, Costco, Walmart, BJs, Urgent care centers, Pediatrics, restaurants at least 15 Indian restaurants , Indian grocery stores Patel, Patidar etc , Buses to New york and many. 2. Parking - Just forget about the hassles. You will definitely find a spot right in front of your building. I mean it. I never ever had any parking issues in this community. I always parked my car just in front of my apartment. No parking permits from leasing office for your cars This is both a good and bad . 3. Grounds - Grounds are kept clean and looks great. Few bald spots here and there on lawn. But, that's totally fine. Garbage is cleared regularly. 4. Maintenance Staff - The entire team is just awesome. No issues at least I've ever faced with them. Maintenance was always responsive for all my queries. On-site maintenance is doing a great job. Pest control is available on Wednesdays as well. 5. Amenities - Kids play area, Gym, Swimming pool Only during May-October I guess , Clubhouse. Everything is kept clean and maintained well. 6. Snow clearing - Snow clearance was done without any delays during the winter. Crew managed to clear parking spots and driveways, pathways very quickly. I would give 5 stars to this service. Now, on the downsides of this apartment. 1. Quality of building - I wouldn't give 5 stars in this area. But, trust me. This is maintained at it's best that it can be. Luckily, we've got a brand new kitchen and a bathroom. Yes. they were brand new. Never used stainless steel appliances and new cabinets. And, no Microwave ovens provided. Just buy it yourself. First floor is kind of elevated and so you will hear the noise vibration on the second floor when some kid runs below. Flooring is kind of weak and old. So, unless you have carpets rugs on your floor, it's going to be bad. And, remember every apartment has only hardwood floor. 2. Paid amenities - Amenities that I mentioned comes with a paid subscription. 250 per 12 months contract. You need to pay this when you sign your lease. No excuses. You have to pay this. regardless of whether you use it or not. 3. Pest Roaches - I can spot few bugs and roaches. But don't worry. This is very well kept under control by the Pest control team. Every friend that I check with, has this issue in suburbs of NJ. So, just report this if you spot them to maintenance. You will get it fixed the following Wednesday. 4. Finnegans Lane - Making a left turn out from the apartment on Finnegans Lane will not be an easy job. This might be frustrating at times. 5. No fire-alarms - Yes. No fire-alarms or sprinklers at the apartment. You are provided with a handy fire-extinguisher in the kitchen Be trained to use one when an emergency strikes . 6. Lease termination charges - Bunch of charges would be on your shoulders when you break your lease. So, be extra cautious here. You will forfeit the security deposit One month rent if you cancel the lease within first 3 months of moving in. 50 decorating fee for each remaining months when lease termination happens in the first year Not applicable when you move out after first year . Advertising cost of 190 payable to landlord. 2 months rent as lease breakage fee. 3 months advance notice if you decide not to continue the lease. Overall, I would definitely recommend this to my friends. Try to get a fully renovated apartment. This obviously comes with a price tag of few hundred bucks extra. But, will definitely make your living experience here better. Personally, I didn't like the apartments which were not renovated. My apartment has a great view to the lawn Every apartment has balcony patio and has brand new kitchen and bathroom. So, I like it very much. Many families here have kids Infants. So, your kid will definitely have good time if you have one. Enjoy your stay at Colony oaks

|Recommended: YesIt's great — It's okay.
|Recommended: YesOne of the best apartments in the area — We have lived in this apartment about 6 months. We have nothing but great things to say. The grounds are well maintained, the neighbors are friendly, the layout is perfect and maintenance requests are done in a timely manner. Our only complaint is with the heating- There is no wall thermostat to regulate the temperature- only a nob with numbered settings 0-5. We find that this needs to be adjusted with changing temperatures outside constantly. This is not a deal breaker at all and we really enjoy living here.
