We love Claradon!! We moved here when my son was 10 says old, so honestly our brains were a little foggy when we were singing all of the paperwork and everything, but they took the time to go over everything with us in full depth and explained all of the extra fees, the rules, and what we would agree to so well. Yes, there are fees, but they are very up-front about them from the beginning so you know what you are getting into before you agree to pay them. We love our apartment and the awesome amenities! The rare times we have had a complaint, the staff has been so kind and friendly. Also there's an awesome waking trail behind the complex that has been a lifesaver during quarantine!
