Lived here for two an a half years. Loved in the first two years. After that they switched property owners and office management and staff. I do not have a single positive thing to say about the new property owners and staff. Rude, unprofessional, and much more. The apartment community atmosphere completely changed as soon as they took over. (not in a good way) I would never recommend.
I lived in this place for a year. It being my first apartment I at first thought the place looked lovely and was going to be a great place to live. I could not have been more wrong. First of all when they say the square footage is 700 square feet what it really is is about 550 of livable space. Also, be careful throwing your trash away. There is probably a dumpster diver in there you are throwing your garbage onto. If your kitchen light goes out, forget about cooking for at least a week and have the same issue happen multiple times until the one person with a brain can get the right part for your light. My light went out at least 3 separate times in under 6 months. If you live on the third floor the attic fan is also a part of your electric bill and your air conditioner will not work well enough to keep your house cool. If it goes out after hours, expect to go the night with out your AC. I had to run my place at 85 degrees and it ran constantly. My electric bill was $250+ a month for cooling my "700sqf" apartment. Furthermore, the water will go out without warning multiple times because there is a water main break and you will be without water for hours and no one even informs you. You just turn your water on and nothing happens; there is no communication from the staff. I hated going to the office just to get my mail. Most of them didn't want to be bothered. Don't bother to say thank you, they will just say goodbye. There are also a lot of smokers there. I could never open my windows due to the smell of smoke and weed constantly being around. With that being said your laundry has to be done outside and will hold the scent. So if you like to make friends with strange people jumping out of your trashcan, peoples patios catching on fire (true story) from having too much trash kept on it, not having water to bathe in or to go to the bathroom, can cook in the dark and love to be hot and sweaty then this is the place for you. I will never recommend this place to anyone.
I have lived in the Garden Grove apartment complex for a year now. I renewed my lease for an additional six months, and will be looking for a less expensive apartment mainly to save money. My experience here has been very good. I've never had a pest problem, loud parties, or anything too bad happen here. The only pet peeve I have is that people will sometimes leave their garbage bags in the breezeway for days at a time. I wish the complex was stricter on this. Otherwise, the apartment staff have been generally kind, helpful, and understanding. Maybe with one exception, they have always maintained a professional demeanor and have been very responsive. They have some nice grounds, multiple pools, and are dog friendly. I don't really use any of these amenities, but I see others making use of them. It's too bad that most of the comments about this complex are negative. Unless it was different management before I arrived, I cannot understand this. I am a single guy who is attending school as a doctoral student, and this place has worked fine for me the whole time.
Just moved out and could not be happier... Worst apartments I have ever been too.bug infestations, noisy neighbors, terrible managment/maintenance. Do not move here !! Your life will be miserable like ours was...
Lived here for a year. We actually won a contest where we won free rent for a whole year!!! Yes a whole year, for one year we paid $13.48 per month for a 2 Bedroom 2 bath apartment! Always enter those contests when they offer, apparently they are legit! So yeah we were happy here. Aside from the cheap rent we paid, they grounds were very lush considering the surrounding area. We did have some noise issues, but never did complain due to the free rent.
