Friendly staff and decently priced.submitted by Katie C. - |Recommended: YesAnne is great to work with and overall a nice complex.
Probably the best apartments you can get in West Des Moines without having to go bankrupt submitted by Nicholas W. - |Recommended: YesGreat place to live. I've lived here on two separate occasions and they have since improved a great many things. Parking is no longer a nightmare, apartment units are super clean upon moving in, extra large floor plans, and it is still very affordable for the location and what you get. Even though this is probably the best deal currently available in WDM, there are a few things that could be improved upon. The appliances supplied in the apartments are becoming rather dated and are a bit tacky perhaps, the outside stairwells could use a bit of regular cleaning and touching up, and the plumbing water system wasn't in the best of conditions for us nothing major, just minor annoyances . Regardless, the cons of the Fountains Apartments are still nowhere near as bad as any of the dozen or more places I have lived in WDM and there is no other apartment complex I would rather live in the area
Wonderfulsubmitted by Sonia L. - |Recommended: YesI was living in an two bedroom apartment. It had an wonderful view of the lake. the staff were very friendly and professional. I would differently live there again.
Great Location, Great Price, Great Servicesubmitted by Dain O. - |Recommended: YesThere are many things I like about living at The Fountains, and only a handful that I don't. The location is fantastic just off Mills Civic, only a couple miles from TONS of restaurants and shopping and the price for the location is borderline astounding. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, and maintenance generally responds very quickly and does a good job of fixing what needs fixed. Plus, private entry Gone are the days of smelling what your neighbor's cooking and or forgot to take out to the dumpster. That said, parking can be a bit of a debacle. I work third shift, so I'm generally home on my lunch break late at night, and most nights there is NO open parking anywhere. Coming home in the late evening in general is a good way to end up without a spot to park. The parking area is also a little bit tight, but not so much that it can't be handled easily. Sound insulation could definitely be improved. I live on the second out of three stories, and while I never hear my neighbors beneath me, the ones above and next door can be frequently heard quite easily, whether it's their footsteps, their stereos, or at times even their talking. Some of the fixtures are also in need of improvement. We have various cabinets and drawers that don't close correctly, and maintenance requests are more frequent than I would prefer. Overall, however, I think that The Fountains is one of the nicer apartment complexes that I've ever lived in. The floor plans are very unique, and you really can't beat the location, at least not without forking over another 500-800 bucks a month.
I like it here. Its quiet, feels safe and very clean.submitted by Jimmy S. - |Recommended: YesI would recommend it very highly. I am thinking very hard to find one thing I do that is a downside but not doing very well at it. I like it that much I guess. I agree to terms of posting as long as I remain anonymous

First Time Apartment Living in 50 Yearssubmitted by Gregg T. - |Recommended: YesThis is the first time in my 50 years of life that I have experienced apartment living life. I honestly thought that I would absolutely hate it. I have lived here for almost 18 months, and I am very satisfied with just about everything there is to apartment living. Maintenance requests are very prompt. Grounds are well maintained and clean. Would like to see more flowers around the complex to give it more beauty. LOVE the fireplace..use it daily in the winter time. Complex is pretty quiet, even though I have seen reviews stating otherwise. Would like to see more extended hours on the swimming pool and the tanning bed use. But overall, I love living here

Great place to livesubmitted by Kathleen M. - |Recommended: YesI've really enjoyed my time in my one bedroom apartment. Perfect size for one person, great layout.
response from property -You are a great resident
Great location and nice facilities. submitted by Adam S. - |Recommended: YesGood place to live, and very close to Hy-Vee, dining, and interstate access. Parking lot is rough and hard to get a parking spot close to residence. When dealing with office people, they are very disorganized, never record anything, and were never given any notices when construction of parking lot or personal were to enter the unit. The Pool does not have very accommodating hours and many things are geared towards older residence. Not at all geared towards younger residence. Overall pretty decent place to live, very affordable, and quality units.
