Floors are thin hardwood, so we hear our neighbors all day, and weekend. There is no sound proofing/dampening at all. I think they may be in the circus or hosting Zumba classes up there. The toilets are high off the ground, as a 6' adult my feet barely touch the floor, I have to lean all the way forward on my tip toes while sitting on the toilet. The shows are super low, 5' maybe? So I bend over backwards just trying to shower. Need to get a whole new shower head just to wash my hair. We're in the newley remodled building, so everything is nice and new. Once the construction is done on the building around us I'm sure the grounds will be nice too.
rent's are overpriced .. do not go by looks of club house. everything is closing at 6 PM and it is only good for looking but not for using. infect lot of facility's are taken away (children's activity room, movie cinema room, pool room, all yoga and other activity.. not recommend to anyone. lot of cockroches in all buildings. pest control and other treatment does not work.
We lived there for 1 year. Vacated last month due to renovation they asked all of us in the building to vacate. When we started living there the management was very good. Later management got changed and they are okay now. Renovated pool and gym and leasing office is very good. Ofcourse roaches are problem in this apartment. Never seen bed bugs. Passage area in any building does not have air circulation. That smells. Price also high. But this apartment is so huge that you can make lots of friends and your kids can find lots of other kids for playing. Still has some charm left in this but was looking like fading away. I recommend this for anybody who are okay to live with roaches and dont bother too much on how management really care you when you approach them. Renovated houses seems to really good. It has 4 tennis courts + very good gym + excellent pool. + ofcourse okay management + lots of roaches :)
Let me put it this way, there's nearly nothing good that I have to say about Fair Oaks West. Firstly I am staying here for the summer through national corporate housing, in case that makes any difference in your reception of this review. That said, the first and biggest problem is the cockroaches. One of the few residents who approached me on my first day had nothing to say but "there are a lot of bugs". He was right. It wasn't a day before I saw the first one, and it's only been getting worse since I arrived 3 weeks ago. They are providing pest control which I hope will actually work. The second biggest issue is the lack of air conditioning. Multiple times I have had to sleep in the dining area on 4 chairs as to be under the fan to get any sleep at all. The building is louder than I am used to, and the water from the shower is tinted brownish orange every morning for a few seconds after it's turned on. The next issues probably have something to do with corporate housing rather than the property itself, but I didn't receive any key fob for the property's amenities, and there were no lamp shades in my apartment, and no microwave. I also got 2 sets of the wrong keys to my mailbox and the front door of the building, but luckily the front door is never locked. Many of the other interns from my company have moved out, and I was offered a chance to do the same, but I mistakenly turned it down because it was before the insect issue got worse. The issues are slowly moving down the chain to guest services, but so far I have only heard back about pest control, none of the other issues. I would hope they stop putting interns up in this complex, but if not, and you happen to have just been assigned here yourself, I'd really suggest requesting a change before arriving. I wish I had known. To prospective renters: your experience may be better, and I hope for everyone's sake it is. This is a nice apt and nice complex, just with a few issues that really ruin it for me.
1) Arrived here on first night in US...didn't know directions so called the owner for help as Sunnyvale goes dark after 8:00 PM ..the owner(Rishi Community) was very very Rude.. 2) place is crawling with bed bugs like you literally cant sleep peacefully for a night there..3) 3) upon reaching my accomodation found that it wasn't actlly empty but the existing tenant had merely moved to India for a week.. 4)Pathetic experience on my first night in US..I felt cheated and stressed like never before..all because of Rishi Community
