Do not move here. The front office is very rude and not helpful. Your neighbors will be criminals doing drug deals in the parking lot. Maintenance personnel is sub-par. You will not get what you pay for as this complex is very expensive for apartment living. This complex is the only negative part of the Desert Breeze community.
Everybody would have a different experience and opinion about the same place, I understand. Every place has its own pros and cons, I know. But..... Please hear what I say here; yes, definitely very good location and peaceful, quiet neighborhood, as some people say here. Yes, everything is good and nice......EXCEPT for the MEB management. I had lived here for as long as 7 years as a faithful resident until I began to have issues with this new BAD management last year. For instance, this apartment is really old and has got various bugs, including big roaches and ants, but the management didn't seem to really care about it when the problem was reoccurring over and over again. If you email me, I will provide you with video clips about it to help you figure out what's going on. On top of that, there were numerous cases of floodings, water leaks, and drops here and there for over a year since the advent of this management. I don't blame the maintenance guys as they are nice and kind, especially Victor. I like them. The thing was that the problems were NOT really fixed and they happened again and again. But they said we are just "unlucky." This is really absurd....you know. That's why I moved out now. BUT when I moved out this happened; they charged me $225 OUT of $225 deposit, including "carpet cleaning fee" for the next residents. So there's NO refund at all, and this can happen to you, too. Simply, they will try to rip you off. PLEASE, please be careful not to be screwed by the management and especially the manager "Jessica" in the office. If you prefer to live in a good neighborhood, I will recommend (but still reluctantly) this place. But if you prefer good management and to protect your money, I would rather pay the rent for the first whole month for you to move to another apartment; such a highly "un"recommendable place it is.... Actually, the management is NOT even worth one star in this review based on my experience. Maybe I am just "unlucky", like they said, but I would say they are unlucky too, as they have a resident like me who should leave a very bad review here. PLEASE consider what I said here if you are thinking about moving in there.
Highlight: - Great central location. Walking distance to Fry's and Desert Breeze Park.- Easy move-out process. Lowlights (most were one-offs): - When I first moved in, the AC kept leaking. The dispatcher contacted the on-call technician who only told me to put a bucket underneath and that he would be in first thing in the morning. - No one really showed me a tour of the place, so only later when I asked where the recycle bin was, I realized that there was only one shared among all these units. I didn't mind the walking, but mgmt should show people where things are because I saw so many people throwing out recyclable items into the trash bins - some probably because they don't know a recycle bin exists. - Their mail/delivery policy says that they're not responsible for any packages actually handed to the right recipients. I had someone that took my package by accident (because he moved units but still asked for a package addressed to the old unit) and the leasing office said it's in the leasing contract that they're not responsible for that. That person returned my package, but still inconvenient. As mentioned, most of the lowlights were one-offs, but I feel like they're worth mentioning. Overall, in the one year that I lived there, I liked it.
I have lived here for 5 months. In overall, I was satisfied by this place and service. The location is prime. There is Fry's nearby, and Chandler Fashion Center is just 5 mins by car. ASU is quite close. Maintenance service is quick and nice. It is done within 48 hours, and in urgent matters, they take care of it within hours. There are events going on every months and I like it. For example, the office provide some free breakfast once a month and it's nice. The only thing that I don't like is that this place is a bit old... but this location is perfect, really.
Rented online and moved in 6 months ago. Moved in without visiting, was skeptical but had no choice due to a quick temp job transfer from CA. Had one little misunderstanding with a maintenance request but it was quickly resolved by the Supervisor and the Office Manager. Other than that which really is not even worth making mention of, everything is great, Prices are Super!, Clean and close to everything. Im leaving now back to CA, but will recommend to anyone looking in Chandler AZ.
