Secure, comfortable and convenient location.

Secure, comfortable and convenient location. The units are spacious and roomy. 1st floor is a plus. Great hot water and pressure. Mail box could be closer. Handicap parking could be more central to the 2 spaces directly in front of the walkway. Other than that I love the place.

Love Living Here

This has been one of the best places I could ever reside. The staff is very friendly, the neighborhood is well kept and tucked away. I am only 7 minutes from my job and close to all shopping areas and downtown. Only noise is the neighbors above me but other than that, I can't complain. I don't plan on moving anytime soon.

Peaceful and Convenient

"I've lived at Alden Place three years and have appreciated everything about it. The staff is great, the location is convenient to a lot of restaurants, shopping and major highways. The neighbors are friendly and pet owners are considerate of the grounds. This is a peaceful place to live."

Love this place

I've only been living here for about a month, but I love it They take care of maintenance requests pretty quickly, I never hear my neighbors through the walls, and the price is great for the space you're getting. I used to live at the Heights and this is a million times better, at least for a law student.

A pleasant and enjoyable place to live

The Lovely and safe environment is very suitable for visiting scholars and long term students at Duke Univeristy. It should be a wonderful living experience with beautiful garden and nice facilities. There is also a growing Chinese residents in high-tech fields here. People can conveniently meet up in the study room, swimming pool, or BBQ area.

Great place for beginners and veterans to apartment living

It has been great my time being here. Everything in actuality has been very well received and accepted. The community is wonderful, the landscaping and architecture looks fantastic as an avid explorer, and the staff are very friendly and understanding. It has been a great home to come to every day and I have met many good people here that I've bonded with over the year. I do emphasize and encourage people to give it a try as they will not be let down

I moved into Alden Place a month ago and I absolutely love it here. I love my apartment layout and the grounds are beautiful. I can sit out on my balcony and see one of the swimming pools. I love valet trash collection and the health center and all of the amenities. There is a nice playground and this property even has a putting green. My experience here has been nothing but positive and my neighbors are very friendly. I would definitely recommend Alden Place to others.

Good place to live

If you take advantage of specials and community amenities it is definitely worth the cost. I made a last minute decision so it is more than I need which makes it over priced. However, the controllable factors are definitely above average. Good place to live.

A good place to rent with friendly staff

The staff were always friendly and responsive. We moved from this community because we eventually wanted a yard and more privacy after living here for a year on the ground floor. There was nothing I wanted or was displeased with.

Great bang for your buck

Alden Place is nestled in a nice location where it has the feel of a private community while still being close to many major locations shopping centers, universities, etc. . There is always plenty of parking and the grounds are mostly well kept. The new fitness room is sure to accommodate most fitness levels as well. I have always had pleasant experiences with my neighbors and the members of the community and never felt like the area was unsafe. However, the office can be slow to respond and maintenance requests are not always timely. We had a leak in our ceiling that they seem to be pushing off until we move out two months despite the filed claim.

Nice but sometimes the noise is annoying

This is a nice apartment with good landscape. However, the sound insulation is too bad. You can hear your neighbor talking clearly. Sometimes people who live upstairs could make you unable to fall asleep.

Quiet community, many shops around, slightly old housing, go

"Pros I lived in Alden Place for 4 years. This location is highly coveted but quiet, due to its proximity 3 min drive to many supermarkets such as Sams club, Target, and Li Ming's international foods yet remote location. It is located in between Duke and UNC, so many graduate older students tend to reside here, and people with diverse backgrounds live here. Duke is around 7 minutes away whereas UNC is about 15 minutes away. With recent upgrades in commodities pool and work-out , this place is a smash to live in. There is a car wash within the community and a vacuum though not free, coins needed . Con However, pricing is moderate compared to places around and has been steadily rising recently. Houses are wooden and getting relatively old, so I have to make sure to put in requests for maintenance or risk noise complaints from neighbors downstairs. Over all Great and quiet community, new and shiny commodities, slightly old housing, with many many shops around."

First things first I m not a resident

First things first I m not a resident. Me and my girlfriend were looking at apts and she settled here. I went somewhere else. When she moved in we found so many things wrong with the unit: a fixture was loose under the sink that ran from the dishwasher to the disposal, it came off and sprayed nasty water under the sink and also soap water. Cabinets had what looked like water damage inside them or some dirt. And drawers were peeling, stuck, and had loose bottoms. There seemed to be water spots as well near the patio door on the inside. And her toilet and tub were nasty on move in. I m sure there are more things but my point is... for about $2k move in on her part to get into this unit which looked good on the surface. There was a lack of care to her move in. Not that she is special and deserved priority, but when someone moves in...and pays that much!!! They deserve some sort of apartment check. Them not going in to check tells me that for anyone moving in. Your move in check list is going to be hefty, and theirs is going to be light. We will see what comes of this when she decides to move out. Go to Arium up the street.

Good but the community could use some improvement

"The apartment is laid out very well and I have enjoyed the apartment itself a lot. Management is also very nice and quick to respond to any issues, however there are some problems. -There are very few pet waste containers around the complex. This means that in order to be a good dog owner I have to walk half way across the complex to throw away the baggie. Because of this there is dog poop everywhere because when the weather is bad walking that far every time your dog has to go out is ridiculous. -I can hear my upstairs neighbors extremely loudly. The ceilings are so thin I can sometimes hear my upstairs neighbor's baby crying."

Great place but....

"Love the location, the layout plan, and the amenities - 5 stars Parking - 5. Lots of space Grounds - 3. Landscape is well kept but the trash is often ignored, especially in the internal courtyard areas. One of neighbors trash from the patio is still laying around the walkway to the internal grass area. Construction - 2. Looked like they were in a hurry to build the place, can definitely see it in the quality of the build. Nothing luxurious about bulges sticking out in the walls and ceiling paint coming off. Maintenance -3. Great on fixing immediate issues, however not so great with following through with all the ticket requests. Often leave out maintenance request. Staff - 4 stars. Staff is great but sometimes lacks communication, thus some stuff fall through the cracks. Management on the other hand - 0 stars. Need some major improvement Overall - 2.5 stars. Would have given 4, but due to management and moving-in experience as well as the way things were handled - 2.5 stars."

Nice affordable apartments that is at a prime location.

"Pro nice affordable apartments that is at a prime location. Close to both Duke and UNC as well as popular stores like Target. Maintenance is prompt, friendly, and does a great job. Con While Alden Apartment has great things going for them, the management has been very disappointing. I am shocked that the manager is so quick to judge, would speak to me in a condescending tone more than once, does not try to understand others point of view, become dismissive and defensive of anything that they have not done correctly. I would not recommend anyone to live here and have to deal with the manager here. "
