We've lived here for several years now. We're not sure what the older ratings are about but our experience has been good. The staff are friendly and helpful. We have conversations with the manager/ staff on a regular basis. They have… Full Review ▶

I had been living in Windrose Place for 3 years. I agreed with some comments said it is overpriced and the rent is getting higher and higher. However, the landscaping and the environment is very nice. Especially in summer, all the… Full Review ▶

Windrose Place is a complete ripoff. You can get a way nicer place in that area of Pasadena for a lot cheaper. Windrose is constantly raising the rent each year to the maximum amount allowed. Management at times can be very… Full Review ▶

I think the owners need a younger person running the boat. Need that shiney young face in the office and a cute one too, Just my opinion. Just like an old house needs new paint? Yep, that's what the office needs.… Full Review ▶

i won't write too much as there might be a pending investigation. the manager thinks she owns the place and has little interest in working to help the tenants, who pay her salary through their rent. she is unable to handle… Full Review ▶

I wrote a review on 1/24/11 and would like to make another comment. I have now moved out of Windrose Place Apartments to a cheaper place nearby. The Windrose Place leasing office phoned me today to let me know that a… Full Review ▶

Just recently moved out. I lived here for six years and had a really good experience, for the most part. It was always quiet and the grounds were well-kept, and it was a joy to live in such a nice part… Full Review ▶

I recently moved OUT of the Windrose apartment, I lived there for 3yrs. I was told upon moving in that once we got a second car Cathy (manager) would provide us with a second parking spot. After 2 years we got… Full Review ▶

I just attempted to rent from them. They told me i COULD NOT BE REJECTED based on credit. Then after already putting my 2 weeks notice in for work, after setting up movers, I get a call telling me they wont… Full Review ▶

My family and I have left Windrose Place. We lived there for almost a year (can't believe we dealt with b.s. for so long), left the place completely clean (no holes in the walls, clean carpet, and left it really how… Full Review ▶

What a horrible management team, or should I just say Cathy the manager. Or is she even a manager since she doesn't do her job. Been lied to about the apt. Told it was quiet. My ---..I haven't gotten a peaceful… Full Review ▶

The management team at this place does not care about anyone's concerns. If you're looking to have your car broken into, flooding, and to have no privacy then this is the place for you. If not then run in the opposite… Full Review ▶

Cathy presents herself in a professional manner, however, it is only for a short while. Once when I approached her about paying my rent late (due to unforseen vehicle issues) she just turned her business person on and was rather indignant… Full Review ▶

Nice sized apartment for the price. One of the few apartment communities that is "pet friendly". Manager seems nice...always goes beyond the expected....accepts packages, deliveries,etc. Yes as a pet owner I am aware that she always has a smile and a… Full Review ▶

I have lived at Windrose for 2 years. First of all CATHY the manager could care less about any problems you have. My car has been broken into 2 times and when I went to talk to her about the security… Full Review ▶

This apartment complex is a nice place to call home. To comment on other opinions expressed on this web site:

Another comment mentions that a BMW had all four rims/tires stolen. It was my BMW, lemme start from the beginning:

We lived there for about 2 years total. The problems were many, and when I gave 30 day notice, as a form… Full Review ▶

I lived at Windrose for way to long. All the comments written on this site are true. The first floor apartments constantly leak especially 423 Waldo Apt 107 and the surrounding apartments. If you are renting this apartment now..you should leave.… Full Review ▶

I'll start with the good things:

One of the soda machines always gives you 2 drinks for your dollar. There are lots of pretty flowers around. It is easy to jump the fence if you get locked out. The furniture by the… Full Review ▶

I had a 2 bedroom/loft for 2 years.
They rented a unit to a LIVE band leader right below my unit. Had to call the police 4 times in two months.
Manager plays favorites with "pet" residents.

This is a great place to live, the staff is responsive, reasonable and easy to get along with. The tenants are pretty good in that they keep to themselves and are pretty quite. Parking is good. Plus the grounds are nicer… Full Review ▶

Stay away! All first floor tenants are subject to flooding. Don't waste your money. Management and landlord could care less about your belongings. Full Review ▶

Overall this place is better than most in Pasadena. Who wants to spend 2,000 on a new 1 bedroom??????? That is what all these new construction apartments will cost you. At least this place is semi-reasonable. Better to get a 2… Full Review ▶

I have lived in this community for about six months now and I can honestly say it's the quietest apartment I've ever lived in. The places are pretty big and, unlike the newer buildings in town, you can actually fit a… Full Review ▶

This place is incredibly quiet and the manager is a no-nonsense lady, but she´s really very fair and decent and actually quite helpful. I lived here for three years, but got a promotion in October and relocated to S.F. I would… Full Review ▶

I lived in these apartments for one year. The units are very, very expensive; although that´s what you should expect for an apartment in this part of town. But we are talking about $2000 a month for an apartment...that´s a condo… Full Review ▶

The property is tucked away from all the hustle and bustle of the world. It´s about 4 1/2 blocks away from Colorado Blvd. and provides a nice walk to the hustle and bustle of Old Town Pasadena. When I lived at… Full Review ▶

the windrose apartments are not cheap, and to save money you could find a better deal elsewhere for sure. but, when it comes to home: you get what you pay for--and if your budget can allow for living at windrose, you… Full Review ▶
