Resident 2014 - 2017

Emparrado is what they called an explosion. I lived there for over three years, pay my rent on time or ahead of time and called or emailed the front office if I saw something not right on the property. The problem was they lost a great property manager and promoted a person that quickly resigned. Than they hired a person who quickly realized that she just had to go along with the senior property manager, who was located at another of thee properties. I found out after I was told my lease would not be renewed, that because a certain maintenance manager quit, the current manager ran to the senior property manager and said can we not renew the tenants lease. The senior property manager laughed and said, "Sure the AZ rental lease laws our on our side." This was after the Emparrado manager had told me my lease would be renewed. So if your are thinking about leasing at Emparrado, think twice. There are many better places to lease, especially since the apartment complex close to it, just a stone throw away is a Mesa PD haven for the illegal trades.

    I've lived here for over 2 years now and I have enjoyed it! As a single girl living alone feeling safe was very important to me as I went off to live on my own for the first time--I've never worried about that here. In the 2-2 1/2 years I've been here I think I've seen maybe a handful of homeless people riding bikes through looking for cans--I know that the office staff are good about getting them out if they're bothersome, but honestly they few I've seen (my parking spot is near a dumpster/recycle bin area) have been harmless and friendly as all get-out. :-) I walk to the laundry room at night frequently (too hot to do it during the day in the summer!) and never worry about the walk. Any and all neighbors I've ever met are friendly. The staff has changed at one point, but always been very friendly, remembering my name in the first 6 months or so. Maintenance has always been quick to resolve any issue I've had (though they've been few & far between--just normal long-term things). One time my a/c stopped working one evening at the end of the summer and I… See More>

      The last apartment complex I lived at was a completely different world. I can truly say Emparrado Apartments are by far one of the best complexes I have seen, and I just renewed a lease for a second year here. The staff is so very helpful and kind, much different than my last place. I am a single young woman, and I feel completely safe walking across the parking lot at night by myself, or doing my laundry late at night. I can easily hear the neighbors above me, but honestly it doesn't bother me much. Over all, this complex is quiet, friendly, and excellent to come home to rest after a long day of work. Thank you, Emparrado, for making my stay here just a little more easy. :)

        Reading these reviews make me not even want to take a second look at this apartments. The place looks beautiful but Wouldn't want to move in somewhere that has multiple lawsuits or having to deal with a grumpy old lady that favors certain tenants. Taking my family and money elsewhere.

              My husband and I have lived at Emparrado for 3 years and just signed another lease for year number 4. This is by far the best complex we have lived in the Phoenix area. I always feel safe, the staff and neighbors are friendly, it is quiet and there is always parking available. We go to the local YMCA which is very close to the complex and another big reason we stay here. Now, if only the commute to work was shorter. It is worth the commute! Great community to live in.

                I have lived in these apartments for 6 months now and have had my share of experiences. Pros: Parking is always great. My covered parking is pretty far from my apartment, but there is plenty of uncovered parking available closer. The grounds are very well kept. While there is minimal grass, there is never trash, cigarette butts, or overbearing plants. The apartments (the one I'm in anyway) are newly remodeled with black appliances, painted counters, new lighting and cabinets, and new carpet. The pool is always kept very clean! Debbie is always very nice and Jasmine is great too. They just got a new dude, but I haven't met him yet. Now the Cons: Noise is transferred VERY easily throughout the apartments. I could hear the chick below me coughing allllllll the time! If you live by the pool and someone is having a conversation, it will seem like they're on your balcony. But this is told to you when you are looking at poolside apartments, so it was expected. The air conditioner in the laundry room is NEVER on. I mean this is Phoenix people. Turn the A/C on. The gym kind of sucks too. Very old and tiny… See More>

                  This is a nice place to live with a very friendly and professional staff. While noise was something of a problem, it was primarily due to a noisy neighbor upstairs.

                    I have lived at Emparrado for a large portion of my life. I lived here with my parents when I was a little girl and when I married my husband and we decided to start a family I told him I wanted to move back. The people in the front office always meet you with a smile and answer all of your questions with an excellent attitude. Their are numerous floor plans with different one bedrooms and a spacious two bedroom. We lived in a one and a two at some point. We loved both. The apartments have a beautiful roman tub and the two bedrooms have an extra vanity in the bedroom. The vanity is especially great for woman to have their own space to do hair and make up. The complex in its self is small but that is great for opportunity to get to know your neighbors and others in the community. The pool and spa are always kept clean including the large laundry room. I give these apartments two thumbs up!

                      I have to agree with the NO. My husband and I were going to live here until we had a change in work place, we were unable to live here. We were told if we changed our minds we could have our deposit back. We have not been able to get our deposit back and its been a pain. We are both very young college students and we can not afford to lose the $75. A lawyer was brought up and the manager was very defensive. We are going to be sending a lawyer over there. We can not get our deposit back because we canceled our application after being told it was either cancel it or leave it sitting with them until they felt the need to deny us. We did not give them all the information yet, this has been an awful experience for us. The place was beautiful and spacious and seemed like a dream come true however when we were unable to live here it became a nasty battle. I do not like the way we are being treated, like a hostage situation over the money. If they are so desirable they can get another person… See More>

                        I have recently left Emparrado due to relocation. I lived at Emparrado for 18 months. I have nothing but good things to say about the mgmt and maintenance. They responed to any issue I had, which was very infrequent. I don't know what the negative review was about, but I would recommend Emparrado if you are looking for a great apartment at a great place.

                          The ratings are mostly false on this site. Written up by the bitter office manager. If ------ and ---- have to lie on this site to bring in people, then you know you shouldn't move here. As a honest person you can stop by and ask any renter walking around if they suggest you move here. I personally had never heard one good thing about ------ when speaking to neighbors. She lies about many things too and it will cost you. The property is nice because --- and ------ work very hard. ------ has nothing to do with that. She can't bring in new residents by being kind and showing apartments like a normal agent. Instead she is on this website writing fake reviews. You won't be happy at Emparrado.

                            I lived there for almost 4 years and the place was the best complex I've lived in. Clean, and not a single roach in my apartment. The complex is nice and quiet, and the premises are clean- no trash or dog poop on the ground. There aren't any shady characters running around at night, pretty quiet. The staff is very ethical and you can tell they really care about the place. The Chicago Cubs training facility is just behind the complex, and groceries and other stores are within walking distance. In fact, if you need any kind of service (auto repair, health care, etc.) you're a stone throw away. It also has good freeway access. If you're moving to Mesa, come here first!

                              I have lived at Emparrado for 2 years and love living here. I came from living in a large home so was unsure of how I would adjust but everyone here is so kind, the apartments are clean, bug free (yes they really are) and quiet. Altho there is no washer and dryer in my apartment the laundry is close, always kept clean, and I have never not been able to find an available washer or dryer. The pool is never crazy busy or full of partiers which to me is a huge plus. i am a working nurse and therefore leave for work early in the morning. I have never once been kept up at night because of noise. Also in making my decision to live here I consulted a friend who is a Mesa detective and he said this complex has the very least calls of any in Mesa!! I recommend living here to anyone looking for a safe, clean affordable place to call home!

                                I have lived here for a little over a year and a half, and I have nothing but kind words to say. I have always been treated well by the staff. In fact, I feel the office goes above and beyond any other place that I have lived at. The maintenance people will always fix any problem that you have immediately. If I had a problem, I would report it and it would be fixed by the time I returned home from work that day. The Grounds are very safe and clean. The only complaint I could have is that the neighbors were sometimes noisy, but that's just the luck of the draw I guess. I would highly recommend this complex to anyone.

                                  I have lived at Emparrado for two years, one year in a two bedroom and then transferred to a one bedroom. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, including the newly remodeled swimming pool. The management has always been very friendly, even when dealing with maintenance issues. Our A/C went out the first year we were living here, we notified management and someone was out to fix it as soon as possible (that day). I really haven't run into many problems at all in my two years here. It's a very quiet apartment complex, and the people who live here are friendly. I would definitely recommend these apartments to anyone looking for affordable living, with the benefits of great neighbors and management!

                                    Was thrilled to find this place...but

                                    I recently signed my 2nd year lease here and was thrilled initially with the complex. Emparrado has had good reviews overall and few crime reports. At first the staff was wonderful and helpful and I was delighted to find somewhere that loved dogs. Now comes the but. They only love your dog if it is very quiet, or the management favors you. Some dogs are allowed to bark and it is overlooked and others receive demands to either apply shock collars, get rid of the dog or leave. They do seem to have favorites and if you arent one, it doesnt matter if you faithfully pay rent on time and are quiet and keep to yourself. I put up with a booming bass stereo all day every day and that is ok with the management but barking isnt. Dogs bark. All I can tell you is be very, very careful if you are moving here because they love dogs. They may not love yours,or you!

                                      Moving here from Pa. almost 2 yrs ago, and being from a small town I found the best place to live. People are very friendly and management here does a wonderful job. No loitering,things are fixed in a timely, and everything is just wonderful, very clean, and the laundromat is very reasonable. To live in a safe place comes down to the management and they stay right on top if anything happens. You can go to sleep at night knowing you are safe.

                                        Good Apartments

                                        My boyfriend and I have lived here for a year and a half. Some of the Pro's are: clean apartments, well kept grounds, pool always looks clean, hardly any noise (you would think no one lives here haha), no bugs, great parking, and the laundry room always has washers/dryers available. It is close to a Basha's, CVS, Wallgreens, and Blockbuster, so that is great for convenience. Some Con's are: older apartments so the cabinets and appliances are a little outdated, not much of a community feel (everyone keeps to themselves), and its not near any parks or recreational areas, so I feel like its hard to get exercise. Although there is a dog park on site, and the complex offers free Fitness Works memberships! Staff is friendly enough, and you can't beat the prices and location close to the 202! Will probably sign on another year, it helps us to save so much money for the future. Hope this review helps make your decision easier!

                                          Allrighty, I haven't actually moved in yet but the signing the lease experience was so pleasant I wanted to comment on how pleased I am with the application process at the Emparrado as compared with other complexes I visited in the greater Mesa area. I've just moved here from the Boston area to work in Mesa and was having a ----- of a time finding an acceptable place to call home. Luckily I didn't give up easily and found the Emparrado. The Emparrado was the nicest, quietest, complex I've visited. The grounds are beautiful and well tended and the apartments are even better. Large, spacious, and they have big ol' Roman bathtubs. I would have liked a bigger balcony but hey, you can't have everything. I've read just about all the reviews here and got myself a 3rd floor (away from the pool area) apartment. I found the management staff to be quite pleasant and helpful. I saw several interactions between them and the other residents and everyone seemed really happy. Some of the other reviews here seem a tad harsh, bordering on insulting. I'll post a follow up after I've been here awhile but don't expect many changes from what I've posted… See More>

                                            I've been here at Emparrado for a little over a year now and moving here from out of state, site unseen was alittle risky. With many places to choose from, I found the rental rates here were within my budget, although I was hoping for a washer and dryer in my apt, I found that using the laundry room was not an inconvenience at all and it is very well kept up. The apts. are alittle older but the staff really cares about this place. I've had a couple of maintenance issues which were taken care of right away and the office staff were very helpful in helping me with getting to know the area. My neighbors are very friendly and except for a couple times where it got alittle noisey by the pool area at night, it is very quiet here. I love my cozy apt. and I don't plan on moving anytime soon.

                                              Pretty nice apartments

                                              We've been here for over a month now and we mostly love it. Nice apartment, very clean, no bugs, maintenance is excellent, management is great, grounds/pool/laundry room are safe and well-kept. The only thing that bothers us is our above neighbors. Their floors are EXTREMELY squeeky and thin, we hear their every step. Besides they have 2 kids who are constantly running and jumping, sometimes after 12 am, even at 4-5 am. We live with the constant noise from above and it's been really trying our patience. The office lady told me (after we moved in and lived here for few days) that squeeky floors are typical here. We have a 2 y.o. toddler and we chose to live on the first floor so we don't bother anyone. But we have to tolerate someone else's noise now. We asked some other tenants about the noise and they said they didn't have any problems. I guess it's just our bad luck. So overall these are great apartments and I would recommend them, just choose your upstairs neighbors wisely :) Aug. 2011: Ok, almost a year later I can still say that this is a great apartment complex. We mostly enjoyed living here,… See More>

                                                Great Apartments!

                                                I have lived here for two years and the only reason I moved was for a job out of state. These are the quietest apartments I have lived at. The Management is very friendly and takes great care of the place. The pool and hot tub are always clean. Last summer my air conditioner stopped working on a Saturday and the maintenance person came over and fixed it on his day off. If you want a peaceful place to live where you do not have to worry about your neighbors being criminals this is the place. The only thing missing is that my apartment did not have a washer or dryer but the laundry room was never crowded.

                                                  Living Here

                                                  I Love living here at this apaprtment complex. It is very well maintained and I feel safe here being a retired senior citizen that came from a small town in Pa. It is so nice to swim whenever you want,and have reserved parking space,and the people here are so warm and friendly,and management is a available 24 hrs whenever you need them. Once a year they have a Mesa police officer come and talk to the residents about keeping it safe and ways to protect yourself,and management even provides delicious food............I would recomend this place to anyone that I knew that wanted a clean safe environment to live here........
