Be sure to check your appliances, we had a garbage disposal that did not work, a toilet that did not flush properly and a fridge whose freezer would not freeze food properly and the fridge portion would freeze the milk, lettuce, etc. The water would randomly work backwards...hot = cold, cold = hot and so you never knew what you were going to get when you turned on the faucet. There is no personalized water bill, you split the usage with the other apartments. Also, our apartment was broken into and my car was stolen (later recovered) so my opinion might be more critical than someone elses.<br><br>The office staff has been friendly, but the maintenance is very poor. <br><br>The walls are not very insulated, you will hear the people above you unless you are on the top floor, as well as the people beside you. I could always hear their telephone ringing which is never a good sign. I had problems with the smell of what people were cooking inside their apartment permeating into our apartment, in particular the smell of curry in our apartment was very unpleasant. <br><br>Good things - the landscaping is very beautiful and from the outside you feel like you are in a great place to stay. The gates require a code to get in and a code to get out, which prevented the theft of my car during Christmas 2004. It is within walking distance to BART which is both good and bad. You are within walking distance of two great hospitals, a couple of grocery stores, restaurants, a park, and many other shops.
