When I first moved here 7 years ago or so, it was GREAT!! Rent was a reasonable $850 + utilities. It has since changed hands so many times it is unreal and rent is skyrocketing!!! And I get nothing new to show for it; no new paint, carpeting, blinds, - nothing. I believe the cabinets are from the day the place was built - very old! There is a storage problem, there is very little. There are a lot of kids now, they play in the parking area and are very unaware of the cars. I rarely see any adult supervision when these toddlers (3 - 6 years old) are out running around. I find this to be very scary. For the most part, it is a very quiet, comfortable place to live. I love the park like setting and i do like the noise of the freeway (call me odd).
We signed our lease with the previous management company. We were thrilled with nearly everything, at first. They show you a beautiful model unit, decorated and all. We were excited when we talked it over with the leasing office and were told that the apartment we applied for would be one price but when it came down to actually putting money down on it the price was $200.00 more than what was discussed. We didn't have any time left to begin our search again so we signed up for the one bedroom unit. I wish that was all we had a problem with but there is more. On our move in day we signed the lease and given the sheet to fill out with problems in the apartment. When we finally got to the actual unit it was nothing like what we were shown. First you have to walk down 4 steps to get to get to the door, so it is partially underground, which doesn't sound like a problem until you see the windows which are much higher than normal and much smaller, there are two windows (not including the sliding glass door in the living room) one in the "dining area" and one in the bedroom, both very small. Couple that with the ground level view (I can see under my neighbors cars, I wish I was kidding..) and the paint color (which under normal circumstances would be nice, they call it stone but its just gray) our unit feels more like a basement than an apartment home. After that every single door in that place had a problem, the dead bolt sticks when you try to turn it, the bedroom door actually came away from the wall when we inspected the place on move in the bathroom door is off (like the building settled) and the laundry room bi-fold door comes off the track and has fallen on me and my boyfriend multiple times now. The laminate on the counter tops was coming away and they just glued it back down. The carpet smelled like cat pee in one spot in the living room but I unfortunately did not notice that until later. The unit is supposed to be "upgraded" but all that means is gray paint and stainless steel dishwasher and fridge. The drainage in the tub and sinks is dismal and the response I get was that "the building and plumbing is just old" I have tried to get these problems fixed but each time it gets "fixed" the same problem happens again, and it's not as if we are hanging on the doors to make them this way either. the apartment next to us was vacant for a little while (probably due to the rent increase)and it was broken into. The place doesn't feel safe at night (poorly lit) and there is no sense of community like they try to boast. The thing the irritates me the most over all of that is the price of the rent, we pay $1000.00 (not including everything you have to pay for) for just the rent in 598 sq ft unit (which is the smallest) and when the new management company came in they sent out a notice that upon the expiration the cost would go up $300.00. I don't see how they can justify the price hike when no property improvements have been made and nothing in the works as far as we know. I understand that not everyone will have the same problems we have had but I want potential renters to know what they are getting into with this place. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.
It sucked it was a nightmare when the children are playing outside cars just speed up and don't even honk to let them know that they need to move they don't even fix their crap when they fix ur things they steal food they don't fix things they wait about 2 months and then they fix it the storm drains all ways gets flooded and don't fall for the photos they are fake and if ur thinking about moving there don't it is a piece of sugar honey ice tea

Parking is a nightmare and the security company doesn't even have a tow contract. My husband just got home from a 12 hour shift and cant even park his car and walk up up to our apartment because some loser in a subaru was feeling inconsiderate. There are tons of cars just left in the parking lot for months at a time and management does nothing about it.
