i have lived here for a year now and am very satisfied. the staff (2-3/4) are very helpful and will take care of your needs even after you sign your lease (1 not so much) maintenance is HANDS DOWN the absolute best. the guys are respectful, on time, thorough and quick! if you have an emergency they are there within 20 mins (most don't even live on the property) the property is very pet friendly and have the most reasonable pet fees in the area, they even enforce dogs on a leash, which i love. pet deposit is like 300 and 150 is non refundable, monthly pet rent of 10 bucks. you also get an accent wall in your apartment which is awesome b/c it feels more like home then the ugly standard color. i love the updated appliances, washer and dryer come w/ apartment which is great if you don't want to invest. the one bedrooms have HUGE baths but thats the only up side, the bathroom is tiny and theres barely any shelf space, i use mine to shower and do my business so it doesn't bother me. the outdoor storage is a decent size, they are very particular on what can be left out there (thats a positive to me b/c i personally wouldn't like to see someone else's junk) there is a lake which attracts ducks, WARNING: BIRDS HAVE WATERY POOP, its everywhere but theres nothing that anyone can do, i personally don't mind. i love that there are ducks, it adds to the waterfront look. parking most of the time is fairly easy unless you live in a more cluttered unit and even then you will find a spot across from your apartment. I signed for an other year and upgraded into a 2 bedroom. the second bedroom is great for a small baby/ child or 1 teenager. its no bigger then the smallest bedroom in a house, all two bedrooms come with two baths (again not a lot of shelf space, and no where to keep extra towels) the kitchen in plan C is very spacious, the patio is very large. we went from a second floor to a first floor... the second floor gets hotter then the first and the stairs are a drag! but on the first floor you will hear your neighbors walking, when they shower or use the bathroom ( a little annoying but thats anywhere) the pools are all kept up with and very pretty, however when summer comes around so do all the free loaders, they play on the beach volleyball and trash it (i feel bad for the maids and maintenance who have to clean up after them) they do take up your parking spaces and occasionally get too rowdy, a lot of them will stay late and drink or during the day do the same with children around. the front office did nothing during the summer i lived across from the pool, one member actually encouraged it. the gym is limited but still a nice feature to have. the prices are good for waterfront, they will vary, one week a 2 bedroom could be 950 and other week they could be 800 (the more units available the cheaper) i will gladly pay 820 for my apartment b/c there has been no crime in the year that i have lived here, kids don't roam the streets and most that live here have just started their careers or are pursuing their degrees. most people stay to themselves, in the last unit i lived in my neighbors always looked out for us (on the first day of move in our neighbors helped get everything in) yes it is more pricey then anything on el camino or el dorado but you really do get your monies worth, they are located within 30 minutes or less from everything (with no traffic) I normally don't do reviews on anything but i felt like i needed to b/c overall it has been a good year with hidden lakes. if you took the time to read what i had to say i hope it helps!
Worst place to live at- Management is horrible! Electricity is $300+ a month, have mystery fees on their bills- pay a gas bill for what?? Nothing is gas in the apartment. I do not recommend this apartment to anyone.
Horrible place... way too much money for what you get... sure its spacious but the first one they tried to give us was severly infested with roaches and the foundations are all crooked to the point where you feel like you are leaning when standing up straight. The second apartment they gave us was filthy and they wouldn't replace our carpet when the previous tenants had a dog that peed all over it!!! The office staff makes absolutly no sense.... probaby the most aloof people I have ever met that don't do any thinking for themselves....can't wait to get out of here... this place sux....
Great place to live on the water. I love it!
