Northlake Village Apartments is clearly one of the best in Lima. The apartments are nice, spacious and clean. The staff responds quickly to problems. Love the pond and all the surrounding greenery.- Google Review
I previously lived at Northlake Village and only moved to purchase a home, I would move back there in a heartbeat. I really miss the people and relaxing by the pond. I plan on visiting sooner than later. I still have a lot of really good friends living here. I would highly recommend Northlake Village!- Anonymous
