As a recent college graduate moving to Durham from out of state, I don't think I could've picked a better plac Read Moree to settle into. From such a prime location, I am a 10-15 minute walk from virtually anywhere in downtown Durham--restaurants, bars, music and theatre venues, salons, boutiques, and other businesses. Furthermore, staff is always friendly, maintenance is prompt, there are more than enough parking spaces, and the pool and gym are always open and well-maintained.

Overall a pretty good apartment. Very expensive for such a small apartment, though. You also can't live here Read More if you can't tolerate noise. I guess Whetstone made up for it when the construction started by adding valet trash and a dog run... also, very pet friendly. Very clean (I've only ever seen bugs on the sidewalk outside). I wish that they would salt/shovel the sidewalks during snowstorms, and put mirrors or something on the blind corners in the parking garage.

My large two bedroom apartment had no drawer for tableware for starters. The lobby door leading to the parki Read Moreng lot was never locked. Due to building settling the latch never closed and was never repaired over a years time. The tight parking was made worse by spaces not being angled for ease of use. There was no large vehicle parking spaces designated. The hallway was never cleaned or vacumed. The coffee machine was empty with pump noise running constantly over 75% of the stay at Whetstone.

It's disheartening to see that your time at our community has resulted in such a low rating. Our team tries to give residents as much parking space as allotted, so we apologize if you feel like it was still not enough room. If you see any broken amenities, we ask that you alert our staff immediately as our maintenance team will gladly fix all issues in a timely manner. Please feel free to stop by our office with any additional comments as we would love to improve your experience here.

The main problem with the complex was that the employees did not care about anything. For example, I did not h Read Moreave a functional refrigerator for about six weeks and after sending countless emails, placing several phone calls, visiting the office, etc I was finally told that the complex was short staffed and nobody would have time to fix the appliance.
