Woodland Arms Apartments
Resident · 2007 - 2009
Adjacent to the San Francisquito Creek, Woodland Avenue is lined by tall trees and surrounded by lush greenery. This aesthetically pleasing verdancy makes the area feel wonderfully secluded, and it's easy to forget that you're actually located on the edge of East Palo Alto, mere minutes from downtown Palo Alto, and right around the corner from the 101. I lived in a third-floor, one-bedroom studio at the Woodland Arms for nearly two years and truly enjoyed my time there. My room was spacious for a studio (especially the huge balcony) and surprisingly quiet (I rarely heard or saw my neighbors). The building has three laundry rooms, one on each floor, so I was usually able to wash my clothes when I needed to--even on weekends. Woodland Avenue is short on available parking, which made my assigned parking spot in the building's gated lot all the more valuable. The management did an excellent job of maintaining the property, and it seemed like someone was in the courtyard watering the plants, attending to swimming pool maintenance, and tidying the grounds every day. The management was cordial and accommodating--even when something in my room needed fixing. I believe I only had to contact the management for in-room maintenance twice, and both times someone came and addressed the issue almost immediately. I really enjoyed living there. In fact, it was such a pleasant place to live, that even though I moved out to buy my first home, I actually miss the place (and the friendly manager). If you're looking for an affordable, conveniently located, spacious, and quiet place to live in the area, you'll appreciate the Woodland Arms Apartments.
