Greedy management company that will make your stay miserable.

I was afraid of leaving a review during my stint at Baker Block due to the possibility of reprisal. But now that I am free, I highly suggest those looking for a nice place to live remove Baker Block from their consideration. The complex is very loud, with both residents and the nearby airport being the main contributors. Management will ALWAYS raise your rent to the maximum they are allowed by state law—at the time of writing this, increases are as much as ~10% a year. There is dog poop everywhere, as many residents refuse to pick up after their pets. And lastly, do not expect your security deposit back upon moving out, even if the apartment is left in excellent condition. They will always charge you for cleaning, paint, and carpet replacement, always at inflated prices.

      This community falls short for a few reasons. To start, It has too many residents to manage and not enough qualified help in management especially the women in the office who can be very abrasive and dismissive (especially Gabriel) and unhelpful. They placed this apartment complex in a very dense part of the city in the pathway of Tesla and other businesses. The parking should be assigned as it is unfair to have to park at the top due to excessive guest coming, or pay extra to secure a set parking place. The management of utilities is unacceptable for hard working people to be met with fees out of nowhere... seriously excessive for such small boxes! I was excessively charged for months and when I moved out they took my deposit and charged me even more excessive fees that couldn't be explained. I was never late and never had any carryover balance and was given a threatening email that if I didn't pay they would take legal action against me and my daughter who is a student! Please do your homework before you sign the lease as it will take an act of Congress to get out of it even… See More>

        Great residence, has almost no disadvantages. Prices for rent are really good, and kitchens are best. The only problem is that a lot of dogs owners don't clean after their pets. But don't think that it's fault of residence. It has special dogs walking area

          We love coming home to BB. It's everything that we want in a home. We rarely get to use the amenities because we are busy but when we are able to it so relaxing and awesome. Our dog is so happy now and that's what really matters!

            The price point for the stunning decor, complex cleanliness, helpful staff & location is very, very competitive. As a current tenant, you cannot hear the freeway or airport inside your apartment. You can barely hear them inside the complex when you're poolside; a very well designed building. Everything inside the apartment is new, simple and attractive, giving you freedom to design and decorate your place as you wish. Has to be the best boutique apartment complex in OC.
