I am a long-time resident of Casa de Marina and wouldn't have lived here so long if it wasn't a great place to live. The grounds, laundry rooms, pools, saunas, etc., are all well taken care of. Additionally, if you have… Full Review ▶
This is the worst managed apartment building that I have ever lived in. First of all, the maintenance crew will not help with the simplest of things such as lighting the pilot light for the gas heater. Apparently for "legal purposes"… Full Review ▶
HEED THIS WARNING!! This is an honest review written by a real resident of Casa De Marina. The management is so corrupt that several of the positive reviews left on this site have been identified as employees of Jones&Jones management who… Full Review ▶
I recently moved out of this apartment and all I have to say is THANK GOD! I just received my security deposit money and out of $500 that I paid, I only received $19.00 back! Are you kidding me? They replaced… Full Review ▶
This place is awful. Worst living/apartment experience ever. I normally do not go on sites like this and write reviews good or bad but I just felt compelled to do so in this case. Where do I start..Casa De Marina is… Full Review ▶
I have no idea what any of you are talking about. Franklly all the contruction is to make the property look and feel better. I have been living at Casa for a while now and it looks WAY BETTER and not… Full Review ▶
There is such a rapid turnover of managers that it's no wonder John L. Jones can't update their files! Here are a FEW examples of complaints tenants have. 1. Older residents are being harassed: "Requiring" people to pay their on line… Full Review ▶
Sour management all the way from corp to the bottom rung. Management turns over every few months, leasing agents that mis-manage. The site manager is rarely on site and his assistants are totally incompetent and rude. hey lie through their teeth… Full Review ▶
Completely incompetent managers on site, even worse at their management company Jones & Jones Management. They have several lawsuits against them for unlawful charges and changes to tenant's leases. Don't be fooled by their "upgrades" which result in raising fees for… Full Review ▶
We moved into this place because it was cheap and for the location but now I see you get what you pay for. Management has never come through on any promises they make their residents feel like we owe them something… Full Review ▶
This company is a joke, they promise you things prior to move in and then disappear after the fact I just took them to small cliams court and WON since they owed me for my deposit, no storage, and they illegally… Full Review ▶
They downgraded the fireplaces into an ugly "picture" of a fireplace that heats up. I asked them to do mine after my lease is up and I move out. They said no. The fireplace was the reason I chose this apartment… Full Review ▶
We lived this property for more than one year. When we moved out, we hired a professional cleaner to clean all the carpet, walls, windows..very carefully. The unit was actually in a very good condition, nothing was wrong. But they still… Full Review ▶
Not a bad place to live, quiet and safe at night but there are some concerns to address. They ask for way too much personal information on their applications (bank account numbers) They are so unorganized at the office forget about… Full Review ▶
New facade on a very poorly managed complex. Very noisy - sounds like your living in a kennel. Complaints and issues are rarley followed up on in a timely fashion. It usually takes several communications before anything (if anything) is done.… Full Review ▶
This place just flat out sucks! No I do not have problems paying rent. No I am not a bitter person. This place is seriously horrible. Parking spaces are not assigned properly, smell of dog poop and pee are everywhere, management… Full Review ▶
I moved in 3 weeks ago on a Friday. The parking spot assigned to me was actually belonged to an existing tenant. The office was close that Saturday and Sunday. So I was left without a parking spot for the whole… Full Review ▶
The property managers were great when we moved in, but there seems to be a high turnover since... The noise gets worse and worse, I can hear my neighbors phone conversations if they have their windows open! We live on the… Full Review ▶
Frequent turnover of on-site managers means problems with noisy neighbors are ignored. Absentee owners make no investment on the inside of the buildings other than cosmetic fixes. Security doors frequently left open so outsiders can party with residents. Contractors frequently block… Full Review ▶
I think everyone must realize by now that the ones that usually review these things are either deadbeat losers who have been kicked out (who obviously write that the place is horrible) or the managers themselves (who write glowing reviews of… Full Review ▶
I've been living in the same 1bd/den unit in the A-bldg for almost 3 years. This place is not the most luxurious place, and I did have reservations when I first rented here. I have had very few problems here, and… Full Review ▶
the dog poop I not only smelled, I saw some as well. This tells me that there is no poop scoop rules in this complex. NOT GOOD!
I also visited the property alone, no one to give me a guided tour and… Full Review ▶
I lived there a few years back & I liked it.
They kept up on it. The landscaping was nice!
Pool was clean.
A couple of months before I moved, new management came in & I was not happy in dealing with them.
They also… Full Review ▶
I lived there for three years and it was the worst place I have lived in my entire life, bar none. A tenant got robbed by a couple gang members in front of the building and tried in vain to alert… Full Review ▶
Dog crap and pee is everywhere, and did I mention the numerous stray/unrestricted cats that walk around begging and pissing everywhere? They are supposed to be kept indoors, but no one at management enforces this rule. (I guess they are too… Full Review ▶
Personally, as a tenant, I don't have a major problem with the complex at all.
In response to people's concerns...
- Trash overflow is the tenants' faults. There are plenty of dumpsters, but people are too lazy to walk 2 steps into the… Full Review ▶
I really love these apartments. I dont see or communicate with the other residents much but they are generally friendly. The management is really good and understanding, they fix appliances etc very quickly and i really love it. Full Review ▶
Although some of the residents are uptight and nosey (spacedog?) this is really an excellent place to live. The office staff is young, friendly, laid-back, and extremely understanding. Units here are clean, spacious, and secure; landscaping is pretty. Again the only… Full Review ▶
Did a Saturday afternoon walkthrough of the property. I was shown one of the units in the "B" complex. I did notice a strange odor that was coming from somewhere on the property. My guess was is it was from inside… Full Review ▶
In the last three years the Type of residents that the Mgmt is renting to has declined. There are drug deals on the street corner. Pet owners have their cats wandering all over the grounds leaving their waste in the bushes.… Full Review ▶
Although I have read the reviews on this place, I decided to check out the place for myself.
The front office smells and is very messy, as well as the staff. Paul I think his name was, looked as if he… Full Review ▶
I think that Casa De Marina is a great place to live, especially for the two bedroom prices, i looked all around and i couldn't find anything this good in the area. also if there is one thing that is good… Full Review ▶
Managers (these people are not worthy of such a title)take several days to call you back for any repairs - constant plumbing problems because they don't replace the old pipes - disgusting.
The trash is overflowing and the surrounding area smells like… Full Review ▶
I lived at Casa de Marina for 2 years and thought it was a great place. The apartments are VERY large with new appliances and fixtures, well kept, and the area is safe. The grounds are maintained on a daily basis… Full Review ▶
Morning starts with Dogs barking.
U see Dog's pee and cat's poo every where.
Gym is out of order,almost every thing is broken.
Sauna is the worst i have ever seen ,they never clean it up u see roaches and many more.
U see knee… Full Review ▶
They ought to rename this place "Caca de Marina". Animals deposit this all over the grounds, the garbage area is always spilling over with the stuff, the plumbing is constantly regurgitating it, and the front office is full of it.
Can't wait… Full Review ▶
Man, it seems on this board that people are either really, REALLY pissed off or they are happy with it.
Look, I'm no shill, and I'm not an idiot. I've lived in some REALLY crappy apartments. Ones where you have to worry… Full Review ▶
I can only assume that the glowing positive reviews posted below were either written by shills, insane people, or those who have recently been granted parole from a state penitentiary.
Management at this place doesn't lift a finger to reign in their… Full Review ▶
I don't see what others have to complain about. I have lived in several different apartment complexes over the past several years, and find that this apartment complex is one of the best. The apartments are in great condition, spacious, and… Full Review ▶
Beware of shills! They post positive comments almost immediately after someone posts a real opinion. Most likely someone from the Manager's or Owner's office. Nobody in their right mind would recommend this dump unless they had spent their prior 20 years… Full Review ▶
I can see why there are a few complaints about noise, but having lived in places that were *genuinely* noisy, this place is alright. In fact, certain parts of the complex seem downright quiet.
While the closet space is abundant,… Full Review ▶
If you like to live amongst trailer trash, then this is your kind of place. Noisy, nosey and inconsiderate neighbors at all hours of the day and night. Kids running and yelling, dogs barking at all hours... again, no consideration for… Full Review ▶
This place is not worth your time.
It´s one of the older complexes I have lived in, and definitely one of the worst run.
Noisy, espcially at night when you want some peace and quiet.
Unresponsive apartment managers… Full Review ▶
The apartments are spacious and light with great amenities like the gas fireplace and new dishwashers. The pool are is lacking, I´ve lived here for a year and never wanted to get into it but it would be nice for kids,… Full Review ▶
I read the other, mostly negative, comments here and am surprised. I lived at Casa de Marina from 1998 to 2002 and was very happy there. There was some noise from people around the pool, but rarely enough to bother me,… Full Review ▶
...for me to poop on!
Seriously folks, with so many beautiful new places to choose from in a city like Los Angeles, why rent from an old dump like this?
If you have to see for yourself, insist on… Full Review ▶
If you would like to live at a place where sleeping at night is impossible because of your neighbors, Casa de Marina is for you.
If you would like to wade through knee deep garbage every Sunday when throwing out… Full Review ▶
I love this complex and location so much that I commute about 1 hour to my job every day. Maintenance fixes any problems usually within a day, grounds are kept up nicely, more amenities than I can use (2 pools, jacuzzis,… Full Review ▶
Management is on top of everything. The complex has everything you need, especailly for a busy life style. People who live there are friendly, and the atmosphere is nice to go home to. Overall, a fun place to live. Full Review ▶
Decent sized livingroom, bedrooms.
Thin walls, ceilings. Noise insulation is essentially nonexistant.
Poor plumbing. Slow drains, old bathroom fixtures. Towel rods held together with Krazy Glue.
Lots of idiotic, noisy, rude neighbors. Also,… Full Review ▶
