I have lived at Woodleaf for over 15 years. What I love about it is the location of this community. I am close to everything I need and also close to downtown Campbell. This is also a very safe location. I'm originally from East San Jose and owned a home there. The comfort of safety and also the comfort of having a maintenance staff that will take care of any maintenance issues I have in my apartment is a huge relief. Staff is always friendly and willing to help out with anything. Yes, I have received an increase in rent for a new lease, but that is the reality of the market in the bay area especially in Silicon Valley. I have looked at several different apartments in the area and all have also seen increases over the years. To me what is most important is a place to call home that is convenient for me and my family and knowing that any issues I have, I can count on the staff there. Campbell is a great city and is perfect for me and my family.
Everyone here has been extremely accommodating and friendly! Both Cameron and David in the management department have been very helpful with the move-in process. The community is quiet, and all of the neighbors are very nice. I'm loving living her so far!
I have lived here almost a year, and my fiance and I have renewed our lease for another year. This has been my first (non-university) apartment experience, and I have been very satisfied. I spent last January and February researching and visiting apartment complexes, and we found that Woodleaf was our favorite site because of the grass, trees, and location. The price was competitive, and lower than many other places. Admittedly, the monthly "pet rent" is a bit higher than other places at $65/pet. The management and tenants seem to be dog-friendly. Our unit is in the back building and is very quiet. It is a short walk to the Pruneyard and downtown Campbell. One of the reasons we like the location so much is that it is close to three great grocery stores: Lunardi's, Trader Joe's, and Whole Foods are all within walking distance of twenty or fewer minutes. The biggest drawback of living here for me has been parking, but parking seems to be a universal Silicon Valley issue. Each unit gets one included covered parking space, and two car stickers. Non-covered parking is first-come, first-ever, and can fill up pretty fast. Plus, all these trees I love so much get my car covered in leaves, twigs, and bird splats. Guest parking rules are reasonable and easy to get. The little maintenance work I have needed has been done efficiently by the two friendly handymen, and is easy to request through the website. I also have had no trouble with e-paying through the residence site. Mail has been secure. Packages sent via USPS are left in the office, but UPS will often come to your unit door. The hot water is quick to arrive in the shower and kitchen sink, and has never run out. Many of the non-kitchen amenities (AC/heater and shower/tub) and the popcorn ceilings are a bit dated in appearance but work just fine. (Affordable rent is more important to me than an uber-modern costly "luxury" apartment.) The sound from the neighbors has rarely been a problem, though we do live on a top floor, corner unit. I highly recommended Woodleaf for anyone who is looking for a quiet, safe and practical lifestyle.
My wife and I love living here at Woodleaf! Great community, awesome staff, and great location! We couldn't ask for anything more!
This place has been nothing but a headache. I have lived here for 2 years and I have plenty of stories...most bad to report. The first year went decently smooth for the most part until it got time to end my lease. First of all, the leasing staff messed up my move-out date and rented my apartment 1 week before I was told to be out. As an incentive to stay in the complex, they offered to reimburse me the week I paid for and wave a transfer fee to another apartment in the complex. Annoying...but fine at this point. After reviewing a statement they provided to me for my new balance, a transfer fee was tagged on (in the 400 dollar range) and pretty much ate up the supposed week reimbursement. So at this point I am already a little unhappy....now pair that with the fact that the leasing office NEVER answers their phone calls, the problem grows larger. I have left a solid 6 messages in my stay here with my phone number and I have yet to get a single return call. Every time it results in me going to the office and resolving whatever issue arises. Oh, and they got rid of their Rent Drop Box recently, so there is no longer an option to drop a check off. You have to hand deliver it to a staff member, provided they aren't out showing apartments. So there is the management side of things...now for the apartments. Well, you will notice that this complex is filled with animals....cats, birds, dogs, whatever. They poop near the back pathway of the last complex, and it stinks. Birds squawk throughout the night... my upstairs neighbor returns home at 1:30 in the morning with his dog which starts running around and smashing into cabinets or whatever the heck is going up there. If you don't have an animal, this place isn't for you. The apartments are pretty small...and in my case the bathroom doesn't have a ceiling vent, causing mold issues and steaming. My door is sightly crooked in frame, creating a gap underneath where spiders and other fun things can charge in. I can go on...but you get the point. The price was reasonable at the time, but there are better VALUES out there.
