Frequently Asked Questions


Polo Villas is a pet-friendly community. 

One-bedroom apartments are allowed a maximum of 1 vehicle only to be parked in an assigned covered parking space and two-bedroom apartments are allowed a maximum of 2 vehicles to be parked in 1 assigned covered and 1 unassigned uncovered parking space.

In addition to our great pool and spa, gated entrance, high-speed wireless internet, and beautiful clubhouse, we offer a generous amenities package in our apartments. All of our apartments have ceramic tile floors in the kitchen and bathroom, keyless apartment entry door locks, private balconies and more.  Please visit our Amenities page to learn more. 


Please contact us to set a tour up. We show available apartments after the current resident has vacated and the apartment
has been cleaned. Our apartments tend to move quickly and many choose to secure an available apartment before viewing it. 

All rental rates, lease terms, and availability are found on our website under the Floor Plans, Pricing & Availability tab. Availability is reported in real time and there is no other availability to offer than what is shown on the website.  Unfortunately, we are not able to provide future availability as we do not know when a current resident may give notice. We do not keep a wait list and ask that you check the website frequently. We offer various lease terms and these can be found under the same tab by clicking into Pricing when an apartment is available. We offer 6 month and 12 month initial leases only and do not offer month-to-month initial tenancies. 

If you would like to move forward in renting an available apartment, please submit an online application by navigating to the Floor Plans, Pricing & Availability tab, selecting the desired floor plan and choosing View Details and then selecting "Pricing" for the desired apartment. This brings up the pricing for the various lease terms. From here, select  "Apply Now" under the desired lease term.  There is a $40.00 application fee for each applicant and a 24 to 48-hour time period for applications to be screened once all the required information is provided and the screening fee is paid.

Once an application has been approved, you will be charged a holding deposit equal to the security deposit and required to sign a Holding Deposit Agreement. Please note, whichever payment method you provided to pay the application fee will be charged with the holding deposit amount. The Holding Deposit Agreement will hold the unit for you until the agreed upon date. Once occupancy commences, the Holding Deposit converts to the Security Deposit. The Holding Deposit is refundable only if the apartment will not be ready for occupancy by the agreed upon date. In order to commence occupancy, you will be required to sign Landlord's Rental Agreement.

Application, Deposit and Move-In Fee payments must be paid by certified funds which include credit card, debit card, money order or cashiers check. 
We do not accept personal checks for move-in chargesMonthly Rent payments are made through the secure Resident Portal via electronic bank transfer (ACH), debit card, or credit card. There is no fee for an electronic bank transfer (ACH). A monthly recurring Auto-Payment may be set up. 

A sample of the Rental Agreement can be found here.
