“Lived here for 2 years & LOVED it. Staff was amazing, never had a complaint. I was very lucky to have amazing neighbors as well.” – Clarissa- Google
For just my spouse and our 2 cats, the 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment is amazing. We both work in the C-U area, and the location leaves us both within 10 minutes of each of our jobs and easy access to any of the businesses on Prospect without feeling too close to the high traffic of the area. The only utility we pay is electric/gas, water is included with rent, and that isn't over $120/month ever thanks to the efficiency of the new appliances and insulation. - Verified Resident- Apartment Ratings
Hunters Pond is a nice quiet community. Everyone is so friendly. Hunters Pond is a safe community. The pond is the most beautiful view. Very soothing to the mind. I would recommend Hunters Pond for the best apartment home in Champaign Illinois. - Verified Resident- Apartment Ratings
