I would strongly recommend that no one buys a home here or rent here. It is very unsafe. They claim online to be a gated community - the gate has not worked since before 2010. There is no parking or lights in the complex so you are forced to park on the street where your car can get vandalized. Two cars in My home have been victimized twice already because we are parked on the street. No lights anywhere so you are walking in the dark to your house - and it is very unsafe. I am not sure why there is an office here - they do not take care of any of the problems around here. Tenants leave garbage out and it blows everywhere. Dog crap everywhere. The photos are also misleading - no park for the children - no walk way with safe passage to doors - barely a pool. Please do yourself a favor and think of your safety and comfort before moving here.
PLEASE PLEASE search before moving here.The homes are great - the space is amazing - but the SAFETY! - the NEIGHBORS! - you cannot change those things - and they are NOT good. People leave their dogs on their patios all day all night. They do not care about their pets - you cannot ask the office for help - they said they have no control. The dog feces is all over your front walkway and it is so unsanitary and disgusting. The walls are so thin you can hear your neighbors conversations and even hear them walking up and down their stairs - and if they have kids that run up and down all day - like I do - then I am sure everyone is disturbed. The garages are all facing each other - some neighbors are not concerned that they cannot park in front of the garage cause then you are blocked in OR unable to get into your own garage. Garbage dumpsters are located all over- yet people leave garbage outside and it blows everywhere. There are no rules or no help - not sure why the office is here- PLEASE move on with your search and take my advice - you will be better off anywhere else but here.
The pool has never been opened. It was vandalized so often they had to close it. And do you know about the drive by shooting that occurred there back in 2010. It's a rough crowd in there. I am not sure your kids are safe. Renter beware.
I truly wish I would have listened to the reviews on Google and Yelp in regards to this place - I didn't and because of that I have endured a great amount of hassle. I began my walk through in the laundry room. There I found soap residue in the washer, change, and pen ink all over the dryer. I walked into a downstairs bedroom looked at the ceiling and found what looked to be green cereal (like Trix) stuck to the ceiling, as well as black marks throughout the ceiling and walls. The amount of dust on the window sills and fixtures along with the mysterious green balls on the ceiling indicated to me that the unit was not painted prior to my walk through. I walked up the stairs and noticed that the carpet on the stairs was filthy and no where did I see markings indicating that they were professionally cleaned, let alone even vacuumed. I noted a fair amount of dust on the door bell unit, vents, and the air filter looked like it had not been changed in quite some time as there was dust caked all around it. In the bathrooms the tubs had black filth in them, mold/mildew in the crevices, and under the soap holders. The master bathrooms cabinet was practically hanging off the hinges. And the kitchen? Oh MY was it ever disgusting. The sink was rust stained, oven knobs still caked with food. The microwave had debris around the window area as well as inside. The vent under the refrigerator was caked with dust and food and the inside of the unit did not look any better. There were water stains, and debris in the cabinetry. The garage had fresh oil spills and just outside of the window were two big fresh piles of dog feces. I immediately went back to the office and asked for my deposit and holding fee back. This was beyond unacceptable. Stacy and James attempted to rectify the situation by offering to have the unit cleaned but with this experience, mixed with the reviews I read on the property there wasn't much either of them could say to make me want to stay. This was just an indication of the type of service I would have received had anything gone wrong in the unit during my stay. They did return the deposit and holding fee I gave them but at a GREAT inconvenience and financial loss to myself. These funds were given as a money order. The money order was already made out to Palmilla and therefore I am unable to deposit or cash it myself. What I do have to do is send in a request to the issuing company, pay $15 and wait for the money to be refunded to me. And since this is two separate money orders I am now out $30. Moreover, I had furniture due to be delivered that morning that I had to reschedule at a cost of $50, movers I had to cancel at $50, mail that has already been forwarded to the unit, checks ordered with that new address on it, I had electric service and gas service turned on at the unit that I am going to get a bill for though I haven't inhabited it, and I have incurred extra fees at my current place of residence due to the fact I was not able to move out on the 15th. So what was simply just giving me back my money to Pamilla Management is nothing but a loss and a HUGE hassle to myself because they attempted to rent me out a filthy unit.
Do not move here. We cannot even go on vacation because we know that the place will be robbed. How do I know this? Someone tried to break in while my husband was at home. We have two small children and do not feel safe. The new staff showed no sympathy toward the situation when I asked to break the lease ONE MONTH early. ALSO DO NOT BELIEVE THE PICS, there is NO POOL!
