Resident 2020

12/22/2020

I lived here for two years prior to graduating 2020 and moving on. I initially moved to this apt because of its location to campus. La Casa is a chill laid back place and rent is affordable. It's an old building but the inside of the units are nice. The plumbing and electrical all work perfectly fine. The new manager they hired in 2019 is very nice and handles business without getting into yours. She was very cordial when my family came to stay for a week and even gave up her parking space so my mom wouldn't have to walk too far .If I ever return to Davis I would definitely live here again.

    This is my second year living at La Casa and I am wholeheartedly regretting renewing my lease. The building owner is worried more about getting sued by previous residents than the safety and comfort of current residents. She lives off-site, so whenever something goes wrong her excuse is "I don't live there, I didn't know." The apartment manager does not care about her job. My favorite quote from her is "I don't get paid enough for this ----." She is very unprofessional and can often be seen using foul language and smoking on the property (even though we sign non-smoking leases). The apartments (I am in a 2br/1.5ba) themselves are not the worst- just very old and outdated. However, if you want anything fixed, good luck! It took a month for them to repair our AC in the middle of summer during temperatures of 100+ degrees. I still have repairs in my apartment from my first leasing term (2018-2019) that need fixing. There is mold in the bathroom and kitchen, tears in the carpet, and broken blinds that I have come to terms with living with. Rent is paid via a single check, which is usually cashed about a month… See More>

      There is only one manager running the entire complex and he also serves as the repair person. The apartment complex is very run down and and dirty. The interior has dated appliances. The rent increases even though there are not any improvements on the premises. When you move in it is dirty from the previous tenants. The manager expects students to clean up when they move out but not everyone does that. Therefore, expect to receive a dirty apartment when you move in.

          Find another place

          Everything was crappy. Manager never come fix anything and you get charged for things you didn't break. They will find every small thing deduct a lot from the deposit. We mopped, washed the carpet spent, and spent a lot of time cleaning the place and they deducted 200 just to clean the apartment. that's bullsh!t. But if you can, go somewhere else. by the way they never clean the pool.

                No way !!

                These people Change managers over and over. I liked the last couple and they got stuff done then poof they were out.This is like a three story building and they have one person try to do every thing so that means nothing gets done and if it does it will break again and again because they don't know what they are doing. Be careful of the "superviser" she will tell you anything to get you to sign up but once your in its all about getting the money. If you have a problem she'll "fix" it (yea right) by haveing the most inept, sleazy, cheap, person slap it together and when (not if WHEN)it breaks. She talks a really good game though and thats just what it is talk. I've learned my lesson and STAY AWAY from her. It's an ok rent price but thats all it is so unless you got someone to fix it up for you stay away

Now they are gone and we don't know why we really liked them.

                    New Manager changes everything

                    I lived here for a couple of years and I just don’t want to leave. This place is very close to campus and the owners are very nice and caring. I got to admit for the last year the manager wasn’t so great but all that is changed with the new manger- Mike. Mike is prompt with repairs and he even works on the weekend. After Mike came, the place looks a lot better now.… See More>

                      It isn't what people make it seem

                      Living here for the past year, I can understand why people are not recommending the place. Surely enough, the past manager was horrible. It took her 3 months to get my toilet fixed as well as my door knob. I'm sure people have similar experiences, but the price for rent is very cheap compared to the other places and the proximity from campus is an added bonus. The new manager that replaced the old one is very helpful and very prompt in handling maintenance orders. The previous maintenance requests that were put in for the previous manager were done within 3 weeks time during turn over. I highly recommend this place.

                        Horrible place to live

                        La Casa De Flores IS a cheap place to live-and you get what you pay for-NOTHING. The managers never get around to fix anything. They will tell you to your face that they will fix it and yet they never get around to doing it. I have even made appointments with the manager to have things repaired but the manager never showed up. It is nearly impossible to get hold of the manager as well. Although phone numbers are posted, the managers often do not pick up their phone and take a long time to get back to you. One of my roommates had to wait for hours when she was locked out our apartment (even though the manager was suposed to be working that day). <br>Additionally, the apartments are is such disrepair that it is embarassing to live there. The grounds look dirty-and your aparment will look worse. The carpet is OLD, the paint on the walls is OLD, the air conditioning SUCKS even if it works. The bathroom ceilings always get moldy (even if you use the ventilation fan). And if you ever do get something fixed (after you bug the managers ALOT) it will be done… See More>

                          not the best place

                          to be honest and fair, the new manager is doing the best she can on her own. Yea she has kids running around but what are you supposed to do? Lock'em in all day and let them run loose at night? <br><br>My hatred is with the property manager, Linda, who is more like a con artist. She lies about everything and gives off a really nasty vibe. At one point we had about 4 managers in a span of couple months, probably because of the lack of pay and the demand. The best manager by far is Patrick who was fired a year ago because Linda wouldn't offer insurance benefits. <br><br>As for the previous posts about rats, pool never cleaned is true. The bedrooms are rather dark and A/C coming only out of one vent. It is close to campus so that is the only plus I can think of.

                            I wish I never moved in to La Casa De Flores

                            The La casa De Flores management takes forever to fix things in the apartment (if they ever get to it). Although it's been triple digits and hotter than hell our pool has been closed for a month now due to a broken light. Instead of getting it fixed, the managers are STILL getting estimates!!!!!! Also, there are several repairs in my apartment that the managers never got to even though I left many matenence slips and talked to the managers personally. Additionally, the management has lost track of our rental payments several times and didn't tell us until six months after the fact so we had to go back through our records to proove we paid it (if you pay with money orders MAKE SURE to keep your stubs forever). Moreover, the management is really bad at giving receipts for rental payment. The management is good at lip service and horrible with real service. I wouldn't reccommend this place to my worst enemy.

                              I am a visiting professor, and have subleased here for the pawt 2 years. My wife and I have been very comfortable in this apartment building, and have referred a fellow collegue here for next year. The manager has been patient with our many questions, and we are glad she has been there to help us. The study room was very helpful in providing an area for holding a study group. Yes, some of my neighbors were also my students.

                                Right for me.

                                This place is just the right fit for me. I've lived here for a few years and there had been a few manager changes but the current manager (been here about a year)is really cool. She is constantly running around fixing things and has helped me find a subleaser for the summer AND my roomate for the 06-07 term. She really seems to care about my situation and never gets mad when I'm locked out and I have to wake her up for the key. I really enjoy the pool especially since it is so hot right now and it is open whenever I need it. The parking is only one spot per apartment but at least the manager towes away unpermitted cars and I can always reach a manager when I need one (not like where I lived before where you can't find ANYBODY after five no matter what)The aparment is comfortable and I really like the two vanity areas (hello privacy)but a diffrent set up on the ac would be nice.

                                  Beware! DO NOT LIVE HERE!!!

                                  Mostly everyone who's posted a review does not recommend this place (and I truly believe the few positive comments are written by the management themselves!). If you're one who doesn't heed advice, then prepare for the worse college renting experience ever. All the other negative reviews I've read are 100% TRUE! If you have a car, the parking is horrible and very tight. Your car will get damaged and scratched, that's a guarantee. Hope you have good insurance. If you hate loud noises, expect to go deaf here. It's next to a frat house and freshman, what do ya expect? If you like clean complexes, prepare for dirt and filth. Grease stains on everything, dirty carpets (no amount of washing can get that dirt out), rusty leaky pipes, water that smells like sewage. And that's just the inside. Outside is even worse. Expect leaves and trash littered everywhere, and dead rats floating in the pool (you think I'm making this stuff up?), saw it with my own eyes as little kids go swimming in it. It's disgusting and completely unsanitary. The ceilings are so low and the walls are nearly… See More>

                                    You can hear noises every few minutes because doors are slammed shut since the hinges are so old in this complex. Most laundry machines are broken, it either takes your money without working or dries your clotes for 10 min and dies. I can't find a parking even when I have a permit, so I park in the middle of the parking driveway. There is no outgoing mailbox and can't check mails on Sundays or Mondays because the room to access mail is locked. Tenants are swimming in a swimming pool with water from a whole winter season's worth of rain, yes the pool I've noticed have never been draind although the water is cleared and probably filtered. Doesn't mean its cleaned though. People always screaming in the next door apartment complex. Anything in need of repair and immediate housing difficulties are rarely responded when it is requested. Manager runs around with a bunch of kids doing other random things. Most of the time she's smoking. She shouldn't be doing so when she's carrying a baby in the belly. Comes furnished, but the furnitures are wearing old. One… See More>

The complex is older, but has been remodeled with new windows and tiled floors. Close to the campus, this is especially good when it rains in the winter. Quite for our studies. No complaints. Comfortable living envirenment.

                                        Nightmare would be an understatement when it comes to parking. The streets are lined with cars at all hours of the day. There are problems finding parking even during the day bc most of the freshmen bring their cars and leave them on the street all week long without moving them. Parking is so bad that even with a permit, there isn't enough parking. The paint is falling off the walls in the bathroom. The carpet seems unwashed and everything is extremely old. Water pressure?... forget about it. Sometimes I feel like the sink has more water coming out of it than the shower does. The water that comes out smells like it's sewage water. The apt is next to a frat house, park, dorms, and russell st. The noise level is non-stop all day long, if it's not the music from next door then it's the leaf blowers going off at 7am or it's the fire trucks going down the street. Oh and the manager's kids are always running around all over the place. This place just has a very shady old motel vibe to it. … See More>

Close to campus, and shopping at the U-mall. the new manager has handled our maintenance requests fairly quickly, and the new windows that were installed a couple years ago are great.

Might as well camp out in the park next door. More peaceful there. And no problems and stress to worry about. Living here has given me the worst of college experience.

                                                  I'm graduating this year and after living here for 3 years I belive the most recent manager change was a really good move. The parking is one per unit and we arn't charged like many other properties. My maintenace has been addressed quickly for me and my roommates. Once the maint request is turned in it is resolved within 24 hours.<br>I recieved a rent increse notice yesterday and though I don't want to pay more they only raised it 30 dollars and they had not raised the rent in over two years so it seems reasonable. I hope that each of you will come to the property and meet the manager and make your own decision. We are all adults after all.
