Nice enough with a few disappointmentssubmitted by Chris P. - |Recommended: YesBaytowne is a nicely secluded place to live with excellent proximity to just about any commercial service you could ever want, but a few significant disappointments left me wondering if it was really worth the rent. Firstly, one of my primary criteria for a place to live was to have a garage. When I moved in, I was told there weren't any garage spaces available but that I could be put on a waiting list. When I turned in my keys two years later, I was still on that waiting list. Long story short, Baytowne really should not advertise as having garages. The pool is fine though often crowded. The maintenance response is excellent my water heater failed and within an hour someone was out to investigate the problem. By noon the next day, the water heater was replaced without me having to lift a finger. Another general complaint would be the horrible office hours they keep - only a few hours on Saturday and no time during the week when I could be away from work. For someone like me who doesn't have very free weekends, it meant having to rearrange my work schedule in order to visit the office. Adding just another hour to their office hours ie saying open until 6 00 would have made life much easier. My unit also did have a bit of a silverfish problem, though I acknowledge that's a very difficult pest to get rid of, and I know Baytowne puts in a lot of work toward pest control. There's also some obvious dilapidation to the buildings, many of which have portions of siding missing. This is more of an aesthetic comment than anything. Other than these complaints, I'd say it's a pretty nice place to call home.
response from property -Thanks Chris for the review! I am sorry that we were unable to get the garage you needed! Garages are so popular! When people get a garage they don't seem to move often. We are proud they decide to stay with us. Our office hours are Monday - Friday 9am to 5pm with Saturday hours of 10am to 2pm. We also have our Courtesy Gate staff that are available to help when we aren't able to meet person to person. I'm thrilled to hear that the maintenance staff was so appreciated! They do work hard to meet the needs of our community. Also, you are correct that silverfish are a bit difficult to get rid of and require special attention and treatment sometimes more than once. I am glad you enjoyed being a part of our Baytowne community and would welcome the opportunity to have you join us again! Diana Browning, Property Manager
I've been extremely happy here submitted by Staci W. - |Recommended: YesQuiet, well kept apartments and grounds Having a guard in the gatehouse checking in visitors helps me feel safe. I love the view of the water and visiting the clubhouse. The well planned events are also a highlight for me I definitely feel like my home is in a neighborhood with a strong community, not an apartment complex

Nice place submitted by Haitham S. - |Recommended: YesNice place
Baytowne is such a great place to live submitted by Wei D. - |Recommended: YesI have been here almost two years now and I still feel that I live in a resort. I appreciated all the amenities it has to provide, everything has been maintained so well, and Baytowne also tried very hard to do their renovation projects to keep this place up to date. If I have to criticize it, then parking is one thing that I am not very satisfied as it doesn't have enough garages for people to rent. But there are ample open parking spaces. Noise level, I cannot hear my next door neighbor, but upstairs can hear much better than the side, but it is an apartment building, I guess compare to others it is much better. Overall, I am happy living in Baytowne, the place makes me feel safe and worry free, thanks to the hard work of the maintenance crew to keep up with fixing all sorts of problems inside and outside of the unit whenever you have it. As far as safety, after my bike got stolen from the front porch, it changed my point of view of being a safe environment, but I still feel relatively safe living in this gated community.
It is manicured and well cared for.submitted by Alexa C. - |Recommended: YesMost of the tenants are friendly and respectful. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are many amenities, and opportunities to participate in community activities. Lovely lake view.
Very clean and presentable. Good stuffsubmitted by Bader N. - |Recommended: YesBaytowne has set the bar for rented apartments. If they would sell a unit, I would buy one in a second It's just a shame they don't allow any pets on premises.
Very high standard of living is providedsubmitted by Chadd K. - |Recommended: YesLiving at Baytowne has been a pleasure. My apartment is large for the price and all the amenities such as pool, restaurant bar, gym, and so much more are fantastic. I highly recommend this place for anyone moving to Champaign
I think the property is very well kept and a bit of a hidden gem in the Champaign-Urbana area.submitted by Sean H. - |Recommended: YesIf someone were to ask me what it is like living here, I would tell them that it's extremely peaceful and a great place to live.

Resort style living submitted by Maura W. - |Recommended: YesWe love living here at Baytowne Our patio faces the pond and the view is amazing. The staff is great. My favorite part of living here is the ability to walk to the clubhouse and enjoy either a dip in the pool or a cold beer at the bar. Areas to improve may be the upkeep of the pond and the spider control outside on the buildings and along the mail boxes.
Best thing happened to me in ILsubmitted by Ting D. - |Recommended: YesThe development is well managed. Exterior and interior of units are both fresh-looking and well-maintained. The staff is responsive and helpful. I look forward to coming back to home everyday after work it makes me feel safe and relax living in Baytowne. I think the rent is reasonable for what I get. The monthly Baytowne events are great even the Baytowne cafe's food is fab Way better than all of the on- or near-campus places I visited when I was apt-hunt and those that I visited of friends' no offense to any of my friends who live elsewhere . I only complaint I had once was a downstairs neighbor who loves to put on his stereo VERY loud late at night. It lasted for a couple of weeks before I reported them. Since then I never heard that noise again Again, the responsive and helpful management staff.
