I am gonna make this straight and to the point: DO NOT MOVE HERE!!! Management is worst. They talk to you really good when you come here for home. Once you moved they never care for you. They come with all new rules according to their wish. Current management is really worst and they don't care for the residents problem. Unfortunately my lease is till DEC. I will for sure move out of here after lease. I don't recommend this apartment especially for the rent they are charging.
I am living here for about 3 years. This place is at very convenient location. Close to BART, Foodmax, Target, Indian Grocery store and many other shops. The 2Bed apt (980sqft) very spacious and has good lighting. Bigger hall, walk-in closet, storage space and other things you need. The flooring in Kitchen and bathroom is wooden which is helpful during winter. Our unit is fully upgraded: new carpet, microwave, kitchen appliances, new bath tub, etc. Laundry is across our door. Rent is also lower comparatively and so we are happy. There are parking problems. There is a kids playground. The staff are no where close nice and friendly. Current manager is very rude and don't listens to residents' concerns or solves any problems. All they need is way to get more money out and stick to their rule book. I appreciate being legal but there is very thin line in being legally correct and being rude. I am stuck here for one more year. Previous staff and property management were really good, and with that impression I renewed my lease, and now I regret.
DO NOT make the same mistake as me: In looking for apartments in Fremont, I figured that a couple of negative reviews are the norm for each place. After all, how can a business please everyone? Well in my 7 months at the Waterstone at Fremont, they can't seem to please anyone. Currently I have had ants and silverfish ever since I moved in. They keep telling me that during the warm season, the ants move to find food. Now that it's the cold season, they are telling me that the ants are coming back. After 3 visits from the exterminator and twice weekly Raid sprays from me, the insects are still here. It would be so bad if the ants weren't in my cupboards where my dishes and cups are! All food is either stored in airtight containers or in the fridge. I did that thinking that they won't come into my place, yet the ants are still here. Management's explanation is that the ants are attracted to even a single crumb of food. Somehow I think I'll be having insects in my cupboard until my lease runs out. After the rains, I found a two-foot long crack next to my bedroom window. Looking closer, I can see the crack runs from the ceiling down to the floor. I can clearly see the Spackle and paint that they used to cover this crack. I am not a civil engineer, but I can see that crack existed before I moved in. Today is January 14th 2013, and the Elevator permit expired December 15th 2012. I have personally asked the UPS delivery man, the Comcast cable guy, and the USPS woman why they take the stairs. Their answer? They're scared that the elevator might kill them. about 50% of the time, when you step into the carriage, it drops a an inch or so before the doors close. When the annual resident survey came out, I noted that many people felt unsafe using the elevator, yet I have not seen a change in it while using it. I walk up 3 flights of stairs daily rather than use the elevator. The ceilings are pretty thin in my building. I have been trying to walk as soft as I can ever since my downstairs neighbor talked to me about keeping his son up from walking too hard. After two more conversations, I have explained to him that I am walking as soft as I can. Yet he can hear me most of the time. I can sometimes hear people walking normally in the hallways outside my apartment door. I do not have any reason for this other than that I believe the ceilings and floors do not have adequate insulation. Aside from those things, here are the pros: -Awesome neighborhood location(close to shops) -Friendly management -Laundry/Garbage chute are very close -Safe neighborhood -Built-in microwave with stove in apartment For me, it is a no-brainer that i will NOT be renewing my lease. also, in looking at the past reviews, I will not be expecting my security deposit. In fact, I am so upset at this property and its management that am seriously considering paying the $1,520 penalty to terminate my lease early. Please, Please, PLEASE heed these negative warnings and look somewhere else!
The worst complex I have ever been at, try to stay away if possible. It has been over 2 months and I still didn't get my deposit back.
Condos are superbly placed facing the road , easy for shopping around especially if ur a bachelor and don't have a car..
