I moved from a rural area to the Fairlakes area at the beginning of January 2016. My mom and I visited at the end of December. We had went to two other apartment complexes, which were nice. However, when we went to the Arbors, we were greeted by Arielle, who was, by far, the nicest person. She welcomed me very warmly to their apartment community and was very good about answering all of our questions. She took us to a one bedroom apartment, The Potomac, and when I walked inside I felt at home. You will know what I'm talking about if you ever come and visit this community. Besides the apartments quality, I also enjoyed the wooded area around the apartments, it kind of reminded me a bit about rural Maryland. After living here for two months now, I cannot to fall more in love with the area and the community. The maintenance staff is absolutely the best, fixing your issues the next day and are always so very nice and courteous when visiting your home. Arielle knows each of the residents by name and is always greeting you with a smile when you come to visit. I feel VERY safe in this community. Overall, the apartments are quiet, but of course you do hear your neighbors walking every so often if you're not on the third floor. And not only is the community itself nice, but it's right in the middle of fair lakes which is so close to almost all the stores and restaurants you could desire. Also, don't forget being only 15 minutes from the Vienna Metro station. I do have only one complaint, but even with this complaint I have no regret with living here, and that is - the windows are extremely drafty. I moved in at a very cold time of year and areas around my windows were very cold (living room, and bedroom). However, I spoke to the leasing manager and Nelson, the maintenance man, came and put plastic up on my windows and talk about a massive difference. Even though the area is noticeably warmer, it has improved majorly and my heater is not running often now. Again I recommend this community 100%. When leave work, I don't come to an apartment, I come to my home. Thanks again Arbors for welcoming me as your family and making my first move an enjoyable one!
We moved into Arbors this past August 2017, and we have been so so so pleased with our apartment, the community, and the management. They really go above and beyond to make sure their tenants feel comfortable, happy, and at home here. They even have free food and events every holiday (including ice cream by the pool in summer, pumpkin decorating in autumn, and a holiday party in December with free giveaways). My partner and I make use of the tennis courts and the gym every week (which they keep quite clean). Furthermore, we love our apartment space. It is nicely renovated and comfortable (our hardwood floors are beautiful and we use the fireplace often). We rarely ever have any noise issues from neighbors. Oh, and the neighbors are seriously so friendly. We have been very happy to meet and chat with our neighbors. It is a very dog friendly complex. We are happy that there is free and spacious parking. I will say, we really had issues with our last apartment complex and the management not being very responsive to our issues-- but not here at Arbors. The management is very quick and kind in responding to any minor issues. We adore adore adore this place and are so thankful to have found it.
This is by far, my favorite apartment complex yet and I've apartment lived throughout my entire military career and after. The office staff and maintenance crew are all fantastic and very friendly too. I moved out to Fairfax to get away from the hustle and bustle of DC/Arlington and I am so glad I did. Every day as I came home after work, I could feel myself relaxing as I drove in on the road home. I also loved my balcony or as what I call the catio because I was able to screen it in for my cats which they loved too. If you have a maintenance request, the crew were very quick to respond. The social events, oh my! My friends were always commenting because I would post about all the fun resident events held here.
The only reason I moved away from here was because of a new job opportunity down south.
I highly recommend checking this property out!
