It used to be a really nice place, but it has gotten run down in the last couple of years. I see the neighborhood in the police beat just about every week. There are a lot of car break-ins and drug related calls out to there a lot now. It is a shame, too. The neighborhood used to be a nice middle class place, but not any more.

Hard to find decent apartments in Berea, most have subsidized housing, which unfortunately, brings in trouble.

Some are nice, some are not in Beaumont, depends on which unit. One landlord lives in Vegas, so is not there to see that the property is taken care of. Grass always needs mowing, alot of the blinds are messed up, and that is just looking while driving by.

It is a shame, for the price of rent, it should be alot nicer.

I would try any area here before I would Beaumont. Like someone else said it used to be really nice (my husband and I lived there from 2004-2006) and it went downhill quick. You can try Craigslist, they have listings and you can also try this place:

Good luck!

My husband and I moved into Beaumont a couple months ago. We found a very nice, very large apt that we both loved. So, we move in and 4 nights after being here, wake up with red bumbs all over our bodies. Needless to say, once we started to investigate as to why we found out that the people who lived here before us had bedbugs. So, we are now dealing with living with our clothes in bags, having exterminators in our home every week, ad it's turned into one massive headache. We have 3 small children and the fact that we have to have them sleep on a mattress in our living room is crazy, all because these bugs have consumed our lives. We aren't the only apartment that has them, some of our neighbors have been dealing with it for months, and some don't have them at all. And to make matters worse, we kept noticing black dots on our childrens walls in their bedroom, it was bed bug fecis. So, this means one of two things.. We have them far worse than indicated or the landlord really didn't clean this apartment before we moved in.
As for the neighborhood, I believe Ira rittled with drug dealers and it's not uncommon to see kids riding their bikes at 12-1 am almost daily. It's almost shocking how some people just let their children roam around. We have been told story of people and theft. Needless to say, when our lease is up, we are happily leaving Beaumont.

from what I have been hearing bed bugs are becoming a huge problem. i also agree with the person above, i believe bed bugs is a godd enough reason to break a lease. I would not stay one more minute in a place that has bed bugs. you gotta watch about buying yard sale and flea mkt stuff too because they can be arried in your home by stuff you buy from there. no way would i let my kids ever sleep one minute where there are bed bugs. no way ho say!
