When moving from Los Angeles up to the San Fran area I had a week to find a place and move between transferring jobs from Danger Close (now DICE LA) to Maxis. A lot of searching online revealed no real suitable places to live without knowing the area so I asked my soon to be work mates for suggestions of areas to live and it ranged from Alameda through to Livermore. In the end I went with neither but Livermore was a good starting point because within minutes I found a place called Dublin (no not the one in Ireland) which is surrounded by hills but close by freeway access into Emeryville and San Francisco via a ~45 minute drive. I could go by the nearby BART connection but I think I'll stick to the car. Waterford Place is above and next to shopping including take away options and a Safeway (yes the same company Morrisons bought out in the UK for my fellow Brits reference) and a short drive to Target. The complex surrounds its own gated multistory car park which lets you park on the floor you live on which helps when you are carrying shopping and has more than enough room for residents and guest cars. There is a large park which has a weekly farmers market going on, skate park, basketball court and splash pad across the road. A pool in the complex and a kitted out gym (which I really need to use but never get around to it :)) I have only really dealt with Mia from the leasing office but she is one of the most helpful and friendly people you can hope to have in the office. As I was moving from LA and had no chance to visit Dublin before the move everything was handled on email and phone with Mia who sent photos and details of apartments and let me reserve an apartment before moving up there and taking a look around before signing the contract. There was no pressure selling and they provided information about the surrounding area before committing to even paying a deposit. The office team aren't like some leasing office staff at other complexes who are all happy and friendly until you sign the contract and then you have trouble getting a reply from them there on, the team here at Waterford Place has always been courteous and helpful.

I have enjoyed living here for almost 3 years. I chose Waterford for the walking convenience to 580, restaurants and Safeway. The complex is gated with great amenities. I have used the gym, pool, hot tub, and clubhouse. All outstandingly clean. The staff is incredibly warm, friendly and helpful. I have never needed any repairs, but the maintenance staff changes the light bulbs when they burn out! The office team is fantastic! I belong to a few wine clubs and have deliveries often. They take care of everything. Parking is sufficient. However, when parking, I would watch out for the support structure poles. If I did not purchase a home I would have definitely stayed.

I have lived at Waterford Place one year. Office staff is amazing and their isnt a high turn over in personnel, they know me by name and my dogs too.They are very nice, personable, and if there was ever an issue, or need from me they took care of it. Maintenance is great, when my microwave wasn't working, or I had a problem with the garbage disposal it was taken care of immediately. What I especially love are the amenities. I feel like I am at a resort when laying by the pool or in the huge spa, and I have enjoyed reading a book while sitting in the cabana area or the other grasses courtyards.I also like how the pool is not a chlorinated pool but a saline pool. (my favorite courtyard is the large courtyard with the boulder pond water feature and out door plush seating) Being so close to restaurants, the grocery store, and a few bars has made me feel as if I was living back in SF..... and walking everywhere. It is also not that far from my favorite date night hangout, the movie theater. My fur kids, aka the dogs love to hangout at the park across the street. On Thursday nights in the spring/summer the Farmers Market is held there, Movie nights, and concerts in the park. It just lovely. Overall I love this place and I recomend this to anyone looking for a place to live in Dublin,

I have been living at Waterford place since August of 2012 and just renewed my lease for the next year. I can not say enough good things about property and management. And my experience started not since time I moved in but also before even I moved here. I was moving from East Coast with my husband and 2 children. I hope you can imagine how stressful it can be, and on top of all the stress our flight had changed and we had delay. I got a call from our car shipper and he told me someone has to accept our car. I have no close friends or family in CA, so I had no other choice but to call to leasing office. I spoke with property manager Kristin and she immediately offered to help me! She accepted car for us! In the airport I got a call from mattress delivers, and they also had to leave mattresses for us, again I had to call for help to office and Kristin was not even a bit frustrated , I could hear her kind tone of voice and she let the them deliver mattresses to our apartment. I can not describe how much I appreciated her help and was in tears! Before moving to this wonderful property I made a trip to Dublin, checked all apartments around. I still remember manager at one of them, she spoke to me for almost an hour, she said she will follow up with me on one particular unit we were interested in, she made so many promises, and when I call her back in a few days to see what is available not only she could not remember me, she could not even find notes she made and was not even half of nice how she was when I saw her first time.. Yes, apartment is important, location is important. But management is even more important! Because you will have to deal with them while you leaving here. So we made our choice! We got beautiful apartment, if we have any small issue maintenance is always here to help! The whole personnel is so friendly! We have the best location, shopping center attached to us, beautiful park across the street! Highway here to commute to SF, BART close by, buses to take you to BART across the street! Every month we have delicious breakfast at community, where we get to know our friendly neighbors :) Nice clean pool ! And if you go to office Kristin and her staff always make you feel welcome and will take care of your needs happily and with professionalism! And one more thing :) My sister is moving here with her family, and guess where we leased her apartment? Yes, at Waterford, at place we can call home sweet home!

We have lived in Waterford for a while, it's been the best place to live in! " I could live here forever". The management people are amazing; Kristen, is the best manager that this property has ever had. Amber is great. Mia is always smiling and is very helpful. Todd is a very cool guy always addressing the problems if you ever have any. The maintenance crew is great, if you ever have anything to get fixed they get it done as soon as possible and with the best attitude ever. Jose, Antonia, Hector, and Roberto are an amazing crew. The grounds are always clean and well kept, the units are amazingly taken care of. The property has a pool, gym, theater room, and the garage is huge," you will always find a parking space." We have the shops right next to us, with in walking distance. There is Safeway, Peet's Coffee, Armadillo Willy's, Amici's Pizza, Mad Fish, etc. I would always be happy to recommend this place, to friends and people in general. This place is awesome, not planning to move away anytime soon!!
