Been living here now for a year and a half and only have good things to say. They fix any maintenance problems right away and spray once or twice a month to get rid of bugs. Will work with you on rent but you must keep them informed and pay when you tell them you can. Bus stop, shops, downtown, and Duke University are very close. Other tenants are nice and friendly. Once in a while you might get some kids fooling around in the halls but that's kids for ya. If you ask them to keep it down they usually do.

Great apartment. Pretty quiet. haven't had any trouble with neighbors. The only problem I have is the roaches in the bathroom and kitchen. Doesn't matter if you have a clean house. We probably won't be renewing the lease. But that is my only issue

My daughter moved here in June (2015) and the level of customer service by Lucio and the maintenance team has been superb! Any requests have been responded...

If you are like me and fresh out of college with only a little money, than Princeton Villas is right for you too. When you rent here you are really doing so for either one of two things...or both: cheap rent fee and great location to downtown Durham. Now to be honest, the apartment community isn't really that bad anyways. The crowd might seem a little sketchy at first, but you'll soon learn that is not the case and that they are all actually very friendly. The insides are also pretty impressive compared to the exterior appearance. Inside, they replaced the carpet and painted the walls before I moved in, and the whole unit was surprisingly a lot more open which makes the whole thing feel a lot bigger.

Princeton Villas is a nice little community right on the side of the road that caters to people of all types. For the amount I pay to live here, I'm satisfied to have a reasonable amount of space and a feeling of safety and security while here. I have not experienced any maintenance issues in my half year here, and I bless the Lord for that. I don't need a pool, a gym, or any of that fancy stuff, because it would only mean a higher rent. I'm happy and thankful for what I have, and I enjoy living here and meeting others who do so as well. It's my little niche in the world.
