Looking to rent a condo in Mill Harbour/ Colony Cove. Is this a safe area for a family?

mill harbour is much better now, when i lived there, we had three car break ins. sometimes when it rains too hard your water will have a salt taste. it looks cleaned up from when i lived there. there have been a few robberies there and there was also a shooting a few years back.

We have a friend who has a unit at Colony Cove. He is satisfied with the area and the complex.

While I have never lived at Colony Cove, I've vacationed there with different owners throughout the past 17 years and I found it very safe! They have security. Last time I stayed there was Jan. 2012 on a PMV with two friends as enjoyed our time there. Who cares if Sec. 8 housing is across the street through two fences! AND a security gate with a code! They are everywhere, well, maybe not out East!

Both MH and CC put a lot of resources and effort into security, both manned and electronic. Just take the basic precausions. Both complexes are becoming more residential with the retired, working people and a few families. Very convient with shopping and close to town. Most CC units have a breeze and a view, MH looks at a small lagoon.

Oh, you are so right, I forgot that stray bullets are stopped by twp chain link fences and security guards.

Then, please, Terry don't venture outside to shop or any where else if you are so afraid. If you read the Avis or Daily regularly, you'll see shots are fired though out this island and not just in the projects!

I second others' comments about Mill Harbor. We lived there for six months last year and safety was never an issue for us. We had a short term lease. All in all, it just wasn't for us.

I agree with STX2020 about reaching out to Trish. She owns 3 units there; lives in one and rents the other two out. Was our neighbor. I wish I would have read this earlier; I just saw her an hour ago LOL.

We looked at that area and I had a bad gut feeling about it. Seemed like
there were always alot of things going on there when I lived on island.We
ended up at Coakley Bay.

Rosesisland, you are correct, it can be dangerous anywhere. However I would like to feel that while I'm in my home I am a "little" safer.

Or by the ruins of the abandoned project houses and the ruins of a blown away hotel.

Touche. Baahaahaa

I think the only condos that don't have some issue of surrounding problems are Coakley Bay and Gentle Winds. The one by Beeson Hill with the French name ( Pointe de Mason ??) isn't bad either but no sea view. Questa Verde doesn't seem too bad but then there is that high fence with the barbed wire at the top for some reason.

Ok... I lived in Mill Harbour Condos for 3 years... It is not perfect, of course, but my experience was a good one for the most part...

Some of the negatives were:

1) Some people would abuse the equipment at the laundry facilities...
2) Use of loud foul language in the pool and surrounding areas... Lack of action when this is reported...
3) Loss of parking spots for residents when the restaurant is full...
4) Carelessness and lack of respect for other people's cars... my car accumulated over 10 dents on the side and one hit on the rear bumper..but all this can happen anywhere, to be fair...
5) Drainage problems during heavy rain on most of the first floor apartments... Also humidity and water discoloration on the walls, and bathroom ceiling spalling...
6) Careless people driving fast at the parking lot, even when it has speed bumps...

Once again, the experience was mostly a positive one, and that out weights the negatives...
