Where to begin...Throughout our time here we have experienced a number of problems with our apartment and maintenence. We have lost a lot of money on food due to the continuous ant problem. We have contacted the maintence dept several times… Full Review ▶
I'd strongly advise not to rent here. These apartments are run by the staff and management of Carmel Landing Apartments across the street and down the hill. It is a BRE Property. I would not recommend either as I am a… Full Review ▶

I loved these apartments. They have a lot of windows, so you get a lot of light. You don't have to pay extra for parking (or the garages). I'll admit the floor plans are kinda awkward, but spacious and you can… Full Review ▶
UPDATED March 5 (text edits) I rented the place sight unseen; I'd seen the floor plans years ago but didn't remember| Serene(sp?) was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and got my paperwork done properly and efficiently| On move-in day though it was… Full Review ▶
This has been the worst renting experience- I can't even go through all the things the staff has done because it's so upsetting. We wanted to move before we got one box through the door. Go anywhere else, anywhere. Full Review ▶
I lived here on an 8th month lease. Even though they advertised the place at $1100, when I got there, they played bait-n-switch. I was desperate and ended up in a $1270/month apartment. Then with the lease ready to expire, they… Full Review ▶
I have never lived in a such a worthless environment. The management is rude and unresponsive. The maintenance has no knowledge in how to fix anything. I have never been so unhappy with were I live until now! DO NOT MOVE… Full Review ▶
I have been here about 5 years and have seen total deterioration of this property. Since BRE took over the complex it has become a terrible and expensive place to live. They have raised my rent over $200 in the past… Full Review ▶
I agree with everyone else! I have lived here for 5 years but the rent is now much higher for much poorer service. Don't bother. Parking is a ridiculous nightmare. There are never enough spots. Get home at later than 7:30… Full Review ▶
Lived here 6 years and it was really nice until BRE came to town. Previous owners would take care of problem tennants immediately and kept high standards for getting in (sorry rift raft, but some of us like peace and quiet… Full Review ▶
Carmel Summit and BRE have truly taken a turn for the worse. This apartment was once a great place to live. Carmel Summit before BRE was strict and took great measures to get good quality tenants. They checked your references; you… Full Review ▶
This place was great before BRE took over. The construction on our building has been going on for months now. We have complained on multiple occasions about construction noise, trash, entrance to our apartment without notice and without permission, and all… Full Review ▶
My husband and I have been at Carmel Landing (used to be Reflections) for over 3 years, this is also a BRE run company. I have to diasgree with all the postings about the negative statements of the staff and maint.… Full Review ▶
Carmel Summit was a very nice place to live for the last several years. With BRE the new property owners it is no longer a nice place to live. The management is not friendly. The management is never available by phone… Full Review ▶
We moved in a little over a year ago, before the new management took over. The first few months were perfect. The new management has been rude on more than a few occasions to me. When I need to get ahold… Full Review ▶
My wife and I moved in the month before BRE took over (October 2006). So we got to experience all the make-over hoop-la. (which is just new paint, re-worked stairs, and new appliances it didn't need). The upgrades were just to… Full Review ▶
We have lived in Carmel Summit for 5 years. It has always been a nice place to live. BRE came to town and purchsed the property and let me tell you, it has gone to hell. They have had so much… Full Review ▶
When I moved here I thought I would live here forever. I live in a beautiful apartment with spacious rooms and the closet of my dreams. We are at the edge of the property and our unit faces a residential street… Full Review ▶
I have read the other reviews and highly agree that you should steer clear from this complex. It is a complete nightmare and BRE is definitely demonstrated the worst in Apartment Managers I have ever seen. It is clear they have… Full Review ▶
Yes, they did update the inside, and yes, they are offering a deal to move in. Believe me, you don't want to deal with BRE. A 2-bedroom is offered at $1765 with one month free plus only $200 security fee. They… Full Review ▶
Absolutely not to Carmel Summit Apartments. The last management team was extremely annoying but we liked the apartment itself so we dealt with it. No More!!! The recent construction outside and to the patio lasted a full 6 months of mess,… Full Review ▶

I had been a resident of Carmel Summit for many years and have held this property in the highest regards until resently. I have heard the horror stories all to much when this so call company called BRE took over. For… Full Review ▶
The manager is a total jerk. He cannot give a straight answer to anything.
And as others have reported here, BRE doesn't follow California Civil Code. They don't give proper notice to enter, they raise the rent over 10% with only a… Full Review ▶
I have lived in the Carmel Summit apartments for over three years. Recently the property has been bought out by BRE. The complex has quickly gone down the drain. They have raised the rent dramatically. They have made changes to the… Full Review ▶
I lived here 4 years relatively happy until BRE took over. Now I'm going to have to leave my home!
Management won't give a straight answer on anything, extremely evasive; they don't follow through on fixing problems, and, I believe are keeping… Full Review ▶
BRE took over Carmel Mountain and Reflections next door, and is jacking up the rent to $1815 per month with only a 30 day written notice. The notice also treatens to raise the rent again if you don't sign up to… Full Review ▶
BRE is raising the rent over 10%, but not following the law by giving a 60 day notice--they are only giving a 30 day notice.
BEWARE. Full Review ▶
I moved in in June of 2006. I was very happy to get this place and have enjoyed living here. That was until BRE took over management of this property. It is painfully obvious that their number one priority is money.… Full Review ▶
From the start of construction at 7 o'clock in the a.m to the snotty NEW office persons. I do NOT recommend the property to anyone. Prices are going on up $180 with no upgrades, unless you move from you current residence… Full Review ▶
Since BRE purchased the complex things turned ugly. They are "upgrading" with no consideration of current tentants. No access to our patios during construction (they say it'll take 3 months); construction people are very noisy from 7:15a.m. on--obvious dirt and dust… Full Review ▶
Carmel Summit apartments are very nice, but the rent just keeps going up every six months, which is why we finally moved. The maintenance people are friendly and professional, and we like the office staff and their wild parties. But the… Full Review ▶
I moved into Carmel Summit 6 months ago, and thought it was going to be fantastic. I found it was just adequate. There are several good things about the complex, but the bad things even out those good.
So- we'll start with… Full Review ▶
I lived in Carmel Summit from '98 to '01 and moved back in '03 because I liked it so much. You will not find many apartments in this area with in-unit washers and driers as well as private, closed garages. The… Full Review ▶
I can't believe some of the comments I have read. But after looking though some of the comments on other apartments I guess these aren't that bad. It seems to me that most complain about "management" but then that is the… Full Review ▶
I stumbled across this website and was amazed to see the diversity of responses. I have lived here for over three years and have had nothing but good experiences. My take on the negative responses is that they probably come from… Full Review ▶
This community is safe and in a great area, but that's where the "pros" end. The office staff alone is a reason to NOT move here. No one performed a final check of my apartment before move in. I found many… Full Review ▶
I was fotunate enough to find this great place about two years ago. I love all of it, the apartment, the grounds, the staff, the location. The ground are well kept - I especially love the pool and work out room.… Full Review ▶
I, myself have had little trouble with the management and I think this is a great place to live. The price is decent, considering each apartment gets it's own garage. Besides that, there is ALWAYS parking in my lot. I never… Full Review ▶
This place has it all from the washer and dryer in the units to a garage for each unit for one car and plenty of parking and good lighting at night plus its gated. The office staff has gone out of… Full Review ▶
I moved in to Carmel Summit because it had a garage, washer/dryer in units, weight room, fireplace, and community hot tub. I was only planning on staying here for a short term because I wanted to move closer to work, but… Full Review ▶
Could it be that "Awful Office staff" and "Creepy" did not thoroughly read the letter they were sent regarding the "Filter" checks or are they deliberating distorting the truth?
The letter I have received for the last 7 years says that they… Full Review ▶
Office staff is awful... not helpful at all.
They forget that they are supported by the tenants and how and why they are being paid. I don't understand why the management company has done nothing about this.
They are very unfriendly and… Full Review ▶
Residents can expect a big rent increase this year, which includes both a monthly increase and a "pay your own water, sewer, & trash" fee courtesy of a sub metering company. To add insult, the staff is selling this as a… Full Review ▶
Let's be realistic, this is a very nice place to live for an apartment complex. It is very quite, and clean. BUT! Dealing with the Office staff is everything the reviews have said. Every one of the women in the Office… Full Review ▶
I moved to Carmel Summit Apartments and unfortunately fell in the trap after moving all my belongings in and had to stay there until my lease was up. I could not afford to pay the $1000 to break the lease so… Full Review ▶
Office staff very unfriendly and uncooperative...and refuse to enforce rules of complex which would create a more equitable situation for all tenants! Full Review ▶
