Pros: 1. Location is super convenient, it's very near to I15 Exit 30 and several commercial plaza, including Target, Home Depot, CVS and so on. 2. Staff in leasing office is friendly and helpful. Maintenance is fast and satisfying. 3. Room is spacious and well-maintained. Cons: It's hard to say it's this apartment's fault. Some pet owners just never pick up after their pet and then, no one would clean the poops. It's disgusting especially in hot days.
We have a rat problem in our apartment and we have a little crawling/walking baby. The rat is in our apartment right now. When we called the emergency number, there was a third party answering service who never called the maintenance people to come out. We had to go out ourselves at 1am to get our OWN traps and It seems like we only injured the rat because there is blood on the floor of our kitchen. there is an infestation in our building. Our rental office is telling us that we won't get a service until Wednesday, this is an emergency in our minds and it is not being treated like one. I am very disappointed right now.
My significant other and I have lived here for 3 years. In the time that we have lived here it has been rather pleasant. The complex certainly has its pros and cons but overall I would say living here is good. Pros: Landscaping is always up to par and very accommodating to our pups. Maintenance crew is friendly, fast, and efficient.(Mario is our favorite). Amenities are always well kept (pool, laundry room, park etc.).The front office manager Jennifer Fitzmond (not sure about spelling) is compassionate and very understanding. The location is amazing with restaurants and stores all within walking distance. Cons: Rent goes up at least $80 with each lease renewal, kind of ridiculous if you ask me. Especially if your a loyal resident who pays rent on time and follows complex rules. Parking is a bit ridiculous its very limited and if you don't have a pass you WILL get towed.(but i understand that their needs to be rules) Also if you have your guests park on del dios there is no way to get inside the gate unless you walk all the way around to 9th ave and punch in the key code. They are pretty strict on hanging stuff over your blacony/deck. I've actually seen an off property manager push towels and blankets onto the ground as she walked pass each apartment that had stuff hanging over. A bit rude if you ask me. I understand it is to keep the ascetic appealing but if you go to the pool for the day or if your sweeping your floor and hang up stuff outside for a few hours i don't see the harm of it. Overall i'd say what has kept us here for 3 years is the great accommodations for our pets, the cleanliness of the complex and the location. We may consider moving if the rent continues to increase incessantly but would be a bit bummed if we had to.
DO NOT MOVE INTO THIS DISGUSTING PLACE. MILITARY BEWARE Not only are the apartments disgusting, but so are the people that work there. Here's my story. We decided to choose this apartment because of the location and proximity to base and my school. FIRST of all, rent may say its 1300, but miscellaneous fees will jack that up to about 200 more. Have you ever heard of paying for maintenance or bug spraying around the apartments? Me neither. Apparently paying a ridiculous amount in rent for a 1 bedroom apartment in ghetto Escondido isn't enough. Our neighbors were harassed by the leasing office. If you have a motorcycle, more than likely it will get stolen. So our neighbors parked their bike on the back porch, in which they were harassed by the leasing office to move the bike because it "looked bad since they were trying to rent the apartment above them." UHHH, okay. NEXT LOAD OF BS. The wonderful "non-smoking" policy. This has not been the case ever since this place opened. It actually took place while we lived there! On day, the wonderful leasing office decided to change the whole entire place to non-smoking. So no, you cannot smoke on your patio, or near it. If you do, you get a big fat charge. HERE'S THE FUNNY THING!! When our neighbors with the bike moved out, a leasing office worker MOVED IN! How awesome! SPECIAL TREATMENT ALL THE WAY. I'm sure rent was even discounted. These wonderful people couldn't even follow their own policies and would smoke on the side of the apartment like no one would know! WAY TO REPRESENT. EVEN FUNNIER, almost ALL of the leasing office workers LIVE IN HIDDEN COVES. HERES TO EVERYONE MILLITARY! DO NOT MOVE IN HERE BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR MILITARY MEMBERS OR POLICIES. We received official orders 28 days before our move to across the country. I went in to give them our orders to terminate the lease AND gave a 30 day notice FEBRUARY 8TH. We HAD to move out MARCH 1st. So a 30 day notice would have taken us to have to pay up until MARCH 8TH, RIGHT??? WRONG. Apparently, prorating is nonexistent here and were were "responsible for an extra month". BULL. We went to a lawyer who advised us not to pay an extra month because we should have been charged just those extra 8 days. WELL, these people charged us the REMAINDER OF OUR LEASE because we supposedly "abandoned our apartment." Even though I had given a 30 day and our orders. KEEP IN MIND: MILITARY CAN GET ORDERS TO DEPLOY AS EARLY AS 24 HOURS. THESE PEOPLE DO NOT CARE. MY ADVICE: STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS HORRID PLACE. It is dirty, the people are full of poop, and rent is way too high to live in a dumpster. I HOPE THE LEASING OFFICE SEES THIS. YOU GUYS ARE ALL CONNECTED TO EACHOTHER AND ALL FEED THE SAME LINE OF BULL. AN OVERALL 1.9 RATING MEANS YOU FIRST OF ALL HAVE AN ISSUE, AND SECOND OF ALL ARE GOING TO LOSE YOUR MILITARY CUSTOMERS DUE TO THIS REVIEW. Have a nice day everyone.
Hidden Cove has been a wonderful apartment for me and my wife! It's quiet, spacious, and close by a ton of shopping and restaurants! It's just two blocks away from Interstate 15 on-ramps, so I can get to work quickly. We've lived here since 2013 and if there's ever been an issue (sink disposal went out once), the maintenance staff has been quick to respond and help solve the problem. There is ample parking inside the gates and they do a good job of making sure people who aren't in compliance get removed quickly. Parking stickers are issued and you can always get passes for friends and family with no hassel! Pets are welcome and there is a lot of grassy areas for them to roam and play. Our dog loves it! Thanks Hidden Cove!
