Yosemite Terrace Apartments
Resident · 2011
My unit was sparkling clean at move-in, and the complex is very well-kept and quiet, apart from a little highway noise. The on site management is pleasant and seems genuinely interested in the tenants' happiness. The construction seems quite recent, as if this was about the last of Chico's growth before new housing development took a break. Located right on the edge of Chico, it's lovely at night. You can easily see the stars to the south and the east, away from all the city lights. The floor plans are quite spacious, including an abundance of kitchen space and storage. The bathrooms are larger than many San Francisco bedrooms. There's a full-sized washer and dryer in each unit, which beats small capacity combined units or having to use shared facilities. Being quiet, and well-maintained, this definitely isn't a party spot for the CSUC students. I expect some faculty and serious students live here, however. The manager was very up front about expectations for maintaining a nice atmosphere and talked about her willingness to quickly intercede if there are noise or other problems. I'll definitely take that over passive management - some other places would let a place slowly go to pieces if residents aren't actively complaining. The parking situation is good. There is one reserved, covered spot for each unit, and there's an additional pool of common parking for visitors or second cars. I can see one of the lots from my bathroom window, and I've yet to see it full.
