My family and I lived at La Villita for about 4 years, there are worse places to live, though I'm not sure there are any better places. They are Corporate, and act like it. The residents don't matter outside of the letter of the law, and when they can bend it they do. We moved out and they gouged us for more money past the $500 deposit they kept. We tried to fight it, but even through letters of dispute, they illegally marked our Credit Report. So, be WARNED, all the advice they give to Apartment Renters you HAVE to do (keep records, take photos, etc.), La Villita is NOT your friend, they will do only what they have to, and take anything they can. A couple of other things... - There are mice and cockroaches. - They will only repair and fix what they have to. - They will always raise your rent.

    Management does not show ANY care for their tenants. Based on false information given to me, from their employee, months before my lease expired, my unit was NOT eligible for the renewal I was told would be okay. Because of this they wanted to charge me 1/2 month rent for the timing. They do not own up to their own responsibilities. There is also constant construction work being done for the past 9 months, starting at 8:00am ON THE DOT every morning. You will be much better off finding another place.

      La Villita Apartments I have lived here for 2 years and am looking forward to moving into a new home. No matter where you live you can't expect everything to be perfect, so here is a list of what I liked and what I didn't like about my experience here at La Villita. I hope this helps you to make an informed decision about this place and if it is right for you. The good: Located close to schools and down town Close to freeway Nice management Spacious studio Nice grounds Balcony and large closet Storage on balcony The bad: -Parking is a nightmare if you need more than one parking spot. You end up having to find parking outside the complex and frequently end up with parking tickets. -Laundry: another nightmare! The machines are tiny and constantly broken. They are so old that i often find new clothes completely ripped and ruined. There are not enough machines either so get used to waiting in line to wash your close. Incredibly inconvenient. Oh and dont bother complaining when the machines eat your money, the leasing office does not care. -Theft. The complex is not gated so anyone can gain access and homeless people do. I have had my tags on… See More>

        I really like the staff. They fixed my maintenance needs within 24 hours. The building is kept clean. I wish they had laundry hook up in the upstairs apts they only have them in the down stair how ever they compensate with the large laundry room and I love the private box storage inside the laundry rooms for our detergents. It's worth my money the apartment are big with a lot of closet space .

          DO NOT MOVE HERE! This is the worst complex ever. they do not care about their tenants or your needs. they spend money on their "cares" events rather than fixing the rat problem or repairs in your apartment. our car has been towed twice (since they are constantly changing parking rules without notification) and had a car stolen. their security does not care if you have an actual problem but they will be there in a second if your talking past 10pm on your own patio. people who live in the houses across the street on placentia will come over in summer with all their kids and use the pool. we never recieved a notice of rent increase but apparently they raised the rent, also never signed a new lease agreeing to the increase. we gave our one month notice and they came back saying we owe past rent? really? you never said anything to us when we paid the original amount and never told us it increased. how can you come after the payment 3 months later. shouldn't they notice this at the beginning of the month when rent was due? they claim they send notices… See More>

            I have lived at this apartment complex long enough to experience first hand what it is to live in a place where their bottom line is making profits. Don't expect any courtesy calls of any kind from management. If you fail to comply in any way, shape or form with their rules and regulations you will pay as simple as that. I've had two experiences that are worth mentioning. My first one was actually their fault. They failed to set up my water bill when I first moved in, even after I brought it up to their attention the third month. Months passed by and all of a sudden I get hit with a $430 water bill. I agreed to pay half the following month and the rest the next one. When I didn't pay half of the bill by the first of that month I was served with 3 day notice to pay rent or quit both at my unit and by mail. They were ready to start legal actions against me even though I had paid the rent and the water bill for that month by the first and have never been late with my rent. And it was their… See More>

              I have lived here 3 years and cannot wait for my lease to be up. Should of moved earlier but kept putting it off. Management here sucks. They do not care about their resident's. We have had a car broken into and one STOLEN. What good is their so called security when you need them, but rest assured if you are out on your patio at 10pm on a saturday they will show up to tell you to keep it down abd go inside. We have had a car towed even though they had a guest pass, Management did not take the time to look up who the pass belongedto but instead just told them to tow it snd this was on Christmas eve. Maybe they should spend less time planning their stupid events and more time caring for their resident's. If you need something repaired in your apartment they will accuse you of damaging it first other then fixing the problem and being helpful. They have a no dog policy although I can give the apartment numbers to at least 4 apartments that have dogs. They do not do anythng about that so why… See More>

                I lived here for a year from 2012.. found this building neat, clean & well built. The management staff were good, but they need to be a bit more professional. I was lucky to get some good neighbors here, at least I could live here in a quiet and peaceful environment.. More or less it had a homely atmosphere. Loved it. I would like to recommend La Villita Apartments to those who are looking for an apartment in Fullerton.

                  If you need to be flanked by very supportive management and cordial neighbors, then this is the place for you.Excellent laundry facility,supportive pet sitters in nearby locations and all other amenities make this place an attractive destination for me.

                    I stayed in these apartments for near about one year before moving to WindWood apartments. Do not believe in the negative reviews. The management people have been pretty supportive from the very beginning. All the supportive systems like laundry and pet-sitters have been pretty consistent too.

                        I have lived at La Villita Apartments for 3 years and I'm sad to be leaving but my company is transferring. I really like the layout of the studio apartment, it's spacious and very comfortable, an excellent apartment for an executive or student. It's very quiet, plenty of storage space if you get a carport or even a garage. The laundry, office and mail boxes are centrally located and nearby. The property is well maintained and their maintenance personnel are quick and competent. The grounds quiet and well maintained. One special feature I love is they provide cabinets in the laundry room to securely store your detergent, bleach and fabric softener. My only disappointments is that they stopped excepting UPS & FedEx packages if you are not home because of the liability. I did have a heavy footed neighbor upstairs but the office worked with them to resolve the issue. I highly recommend La Vallita Apartments.

                          I would never recommend this apartment to anyone. I have lived in the complex 2 years and have had one problem after another. Management doesnt care as long as you pay rent. My car has been broken into 4 times since I moved in which has completely damaged my ignition and doors. The cost of replacing my ignition alone was 450$ and ive had my registration stolen. My boyfriend has had hos car keyed 2x, now every pannel is scratched and has had his registration stolen. My guests have fas their cars towed, pass or no pass. When I told the manager after the 3rd incident she told me I was popular. Um what do we pay a security company for? I never even see those guys, ever, in the parking lot. Last year a screw loose in my front door jam wouldnt allow the door to move. I was trapt, locked inside my apartment. I call the service line... No answer. I call the emergency managers line... I find its the same phone as the office and has the same voicemails box. I call our wonderful security line.... Which turns out to be the office phone/ voicemail. So I… See More>

                            I have come to live in the La Villita apartments 4 months back and have started liking the place, already. I was a little concerned about the safety of my cars and bikes as I overheard one of my neighbors complaining about his bike getting stolen. But, I have not found any cause for concern about my bikes or cars. Initially, parking was a little problematic as, I have two cars and two bikes. I mailed the manager to inform him about my problem and he took no time to respond to that. Soon, the space problem also got solved as they allotted me an additional area for parking my vehicles.

                              I lived in this place for around 9 months when I was in California for an academic project. I enjoyed my stay here due to a number of reasons, but the first thing I should mention is the tranquility and quietness of the area that was a much coveted thing for me as I was there on an educational project. The studio area in my apartment is spacious enough to keep a large bed and several other furniture. Loved the Place!

                                  this is the worse place to live they seem friendly at first until you already moved in then they jack up the price on you. they did it more then once agree to certain terms at first but, they change the terms twice raising rent over two hundred on rent and change utilities twice then started adding hidden fees. this management company is worse then the mob so before warn if you move in you will be sorry. now I am force to move out of an apartment because I can't afford to pay there gangster type tactics. DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.

                                    I absolutely love living here! It's so quiet and tranquil during the day and night which is so important for me. It's very scenic and green and my son loves to walk around and see the three fountains on the property. It's always well lit and I feel very comfortable knowing that management lives on site. My studio is actually quite spacious, it fits my king sized bed and my large dressers and entertainment center and I still have so much walking room! I only wish there was gas stove but all in all, I'm so glad my friend recommended me here. It was such an easy application process and move in. The ladies in the office are so helpful and made it an easy transition. I recommended this community to anyone.

                                      I do not recommend these apartments at all. The parking sucks now that they've reserved more spaces (2 bedroom downstairs get a 2 car garage) but if you have a third car then, well that sucks. Guest parking is horrible. There's only 6 guest parking spots in the whole facility and if they decide to park in the neighborhood across the street, it's close to impossible to find one during the evening around 8 or later. I've had 3 other roommates, me and another share the master bedroom, which has been infested by water bugs. They aren't cockroaches but it's still really gross because there has been so many the past few weeks and maintenance sucks at taking care of the problem. The ladies in the office are impossible to get a hold of because they are gone almost 80% of the time. I'm turning in my 30 day notice and cannot wait to get out of here.

The common areas are always clean, that is something I do appreciate, maintenance is always ahead of the game, and office personnel always willing to help, I will definitely recommend this place.

                                          Been here since Feb. 2011. Have not had any problems. No trouble finding parking, the laundry room is very convenient, the times we needed anything fixed it was done that same day, and the ladies at the office are very nice and helpful. We are lucky enough to have quiet neighbors. All in all, it has been a good experience for me and my fianc . We are actually upgrading to a one bedroom next month. There was a bit of a bug problem at the beginning, but all we did was get a can of raid and it was done.

                                                These apparments are very inexpensive and for the price, good sized. Good Laundry, pool and location. Quiet neiberhood, despite living next to the college. I live next to the pool and the only issue is sound during the summer, obviously. The parking is the only negative. There is none! Any visitors have to park on the surrouding streets (with all 1,000 of the other residents) but you can get a parking pass if you are to the office by 5:00pm. I have enjoyed living here!

                                                  Newly Remodeled and New Management

                                                  I've lived here for almost 1 year and I love it. Ants were a problem once or twice when we first moved in, but a little baby powder near the door once and they never came back, so I'm not sure why the last review was so focused on ants. Crickets... not a problem... black widows... here and there but nothing serious and I've never seen any inside our apartment or patio. There are new maintenance staff and new office staff and they seem to be taking care of things. Parking is great, the studios are spacious. The complex is quiet and well maintained. If you're looking to move in now, you'll really get a good deal since each apartment is being remodeled before they are rented... I feel like moving out just to come back so I can get a remodeled unit!
