Mad house

These apartments would be fine if it weren't for the constantly broken laundry room and the state-housing enabled lunatics who inhabit some of these units with their loud music and incessant screaming and general homeless-like behavior. I guess people keep moving out because the laundry room never works and utilities are charged collectively per building instead of per unit, so everyone shares the charges. Seems like the owners, desperate for renters, decided to take in state-housing types who clearly are sick in the head and turned the place into a madhouse

    I have lived at the Vine Fullerton almost a year now. I have a downstairs 1 bedroom unit and I rent a single garage ($50). This review will cover from move in to 10/31/2013. Starting 11/01/2013 there are new owners so we will see if anything changes. The manager will not be changing, just the owners. First note - new owners will NOT take checks for rent, which I did not find out until I paid with a check. This is AFTER getting a memo stating make CHECKS or money orders out to the new owners starting 11/1. Pros: -The laundry room is open late and I have never seen it dirty -All utilities are included in the rent -I can always find parking, most of the time it is even super close to my unit -The complex is not directly on a busy street -Good access to freeways / park and ride /buses -When my 6 month lease ended and went month to month my rent has never gone up -The neighbors I have met/encountered have all been very friendly Cons: -Homeless shanty town on the side of the complex -If you opt to pay extra to have them unlock the wall… See More>

              excellent place to live in Fullerton, California

              To all person(s) who is looking to move in nice place to live. I can tell you about the best apartments complex in city of Fullerton. I am living in Fullerton all my life, and now I got married year before and now I have baby and want to move in my own place in one or two bedroom apartment and went to see the apartment, believe me, me and my wife was expressed with the courtesy service we got from management. This is the best place we saw in Fullerton for one bedroom, best thing is management paid all utilities. They slowed me one bedroom apartment very nice, clean and mostly everything is new in the apartment. according to management they change mostly everything before some one move out. I talk to several tenants about the complex they said this the best complex to live in, with very co-operative staff and very friendly neighbor. Management ask me if you want to see the complex in the Saturday evening and find the best quite and peaceful complex I ever see. I interview some tenants about the complex. They all said that is the best place to live. They said that… See More>

                DRUG FREE AND SAVE PLACE TO LIVE IN THESES DAYS

                I have been a tenant at Vine FUllerton Apartments for the past year and find the comments about reaches, etc. not to be quite truthful, and know they have been posted by the tenant I have come in contact with over the year who has a bit of a problem due to drugs. Any large complex is bound to have a problems and I personally know that the management has a pest control company under contract to attend to any pest problems. This apartments complex is attrative and well taken care of and the management and maintenance staff do an axcellent job. Any maintenance problems are taken care of immediately, bearing in mind this is a 98 unit complex! There is a well maintained laundry room and open parking throughout the complex. I am perfectly happy living here. Tenants are tenants, some nice and some not so nice, but if you mind your own business, there are no problems. Having been here for over a year, I have no intentions of moving and am delighted that I found a lovely one bedroom apartment with utilities paid in such nice surroundings. Don't be misled by a mentally unbalanced tenant who has… See More>

                  THE OWNER IS WORSE THAN THE ROACHES

                  THE OWNER DOESNT CARE ABOUT YOU OR YOUR PROBLEMS.... AS LONG AS SHE GETS PAID, SHE DOESNT CARE HOW SLUM-LIKE YOUR ACCOMODATIONS ARE. SHES ONLY HERE ON PAYDAY TO MAKE SURE SHES GETTING YOUR MONEY WHILE YOUR GETTING HER ROACHES.

                    I'd rather live in Compton

                    This place makes the streets of Compton look like the Las Vegas strip. One of the worst apartment complex's around Orange County! If you like living in the projects with pedophiles, child molesters, people with AIDS spewing all over everything and junkies shooting up in the alleys while making drug deals behind your apartment with homeless people hollering all night like a pack of hungry wolves while they can see you in the shower window then this place is for you! If you also like roaches, people keying your automobile, unswept broken glass all over the parking lot, clogging toilets and bathtubs and a stove that doesn't work for ---- then I suggest you start renting a place here right away seeing as how they have SO MANY apartments for rent since everyone is leaving due to the ------- maintenance man snitching on everybody for any little thing possible, including having friends over, regardless if they stay over night or not. It's like living in Jail but with a tiny bit more freedom than your average prisoner. Who are you to tell me I can't have guests over to MY apartment that I rightfully pay PER MONTH for?

                      Do not move here

                      This place has some of the worst tenants I have ever had the misfortune of interacting with. While most are fine and okay to interact with, the white trash ones are absolutely incorrigible. I have not enjoyed having the cops called on me for being too loud when I am the only person present in the apartment and am reading a book. I still got a ticket from the worthless Fullerton Police Department even though I'm not the one making all the noise. The owner is pleasant, but the office reeks of cologne and makes it unappealing to those who need to talk to the office workers with regards to questions they might have. Maintenance was not the friendliest, but they got the job done. Despite that, you are given very poor quality appliances to work with. The refrigerator that we got was completely broken down and the toilet would constantly have issues until one night it completely flooded the bathroom and the hallway leading to the bedroom/living room. Also, we recently received notes on our doors that the entire complex had recently been infested with roaches and other insects. Definitely not something I would… See More>

                        DO NOT MOVE HERE

                        the managment will only help you if its in their best interest, not yours. If you have a friend stay over for a night or two, they will send you a notice saying you have 3 days to quit or get evicted. After leaving, they will try to take your security deposit even if your apartment was immaculate. The maintenance routinely goes through apartments when the tenants are not home just to "check up". Im not sure they dont steal from tenants. There is a resident bum group that solicits you for money and drugs, there are bums that sift through your trash as your taking it out. All your neighbors are in your business because the doors face eachother. You might be disturbed when you read the latest notice from the vine apartments managment: WE ARE INFESTED WITH ROACHES! There is also a child molester in apartment #63 verifiable on the megans law website. Beware, this is not the best place to bring your family or children.

                          I just moved into a brand new apartment at Vine-Fullerton Apartments for $900.00 a month, all utilities included, and a special move-in of one month free on a six month lease. I looked all over and couldn't beat this. The apartment I rented was newly painted, new carpeting, absolutely sparkling clean. What was really nice is having a large, clean laundry room available, a fantastic swimming pool and lots of parking space, although I did rent a garage. Management personnel very friendly and the entire apartment complex is immaculate and lovely. I highly recommend this apartment complex

The whole complex is very attrative, clean and the landscaping is lovely. There is a lots of parking space behind the complex, but I also rented a garage. My apartment newly painted, newly carpeted, everything was immaculate. Anyone looking to rent an apartment in Fullerton, this is the place I give it a "10"

                              we just moved into a one-bedroom apartment at Vine-Fullerton Apts. and couldn't be more pleased. The apartment was newly painted, had new carpeting and was absolutely spotless, we didn't have to do a thing but move our furniture in. My husband and I work in Santa Ana and it was nice to have the park and ride near the apartments in the event we wanted to us it. What we really appreciated was the rent at $ 900.00 per month, and this included all utilites - how lucky can you get! There is good open parking in the back of the apartments, but we chose to rent two garages at only $50.00 per month per garage. Not only that, but a nice clean laundry room and a great swimming pool area, everything is so clean. If you are looking to move, we highly recommend Vine-Fullerton Apartments

                                I just rented an apartment at Vine-Fullerton Aptartments., and it's great! My move-in was only $900, and this includes all utilities, plus a $400.00 security deposit - not bad at all. I think of it as garden apartment because my apartment looks out over a lovely planted green area, but all the apartments do the same. What I really enjoy is that it is near the 5 and 91 Freeways, and also near the park and ride, which works for me. Because, right off the orangethorpe gets me down to harbor Boulevard and all the shopping area, and into downtown Fullerton. My apartment was move-in clean and I couldn't ask for more. I wont't hesitate to tell my friens if they are intrested in moving

The area looked quite and so did the apartments I thought this would be agreat place to live intill I could afford to buy my house. Well all my good thoughts were soon changed. I lived in an upstaris unit. My daughter one time dropped a pan on the kitchen floor in the early evening maybe around 6:30 and the next thing I know some older man knocking door after door yelling of the top of his lungs who was making all the racket. cursing and yelling he was trying to sleep. It really scared me when he got to my door and kept pounding on. I tried to explain to him it was an accident but he kept yelling. he finally left after about minutes of yelling. From there on we had to be very carefull and quite. There were people going up and down the halls at all hours of the night yelling cursing fighting. Drug dealers lived a couple doors down you could tell from the strong odor that came from the apartment when you passed by thier door and sometimes the… See More>

                                    I am a tenant at Vine-Fullerton Aparts. and hae been since March of 2008. I have a one-bedroom apartment and I think the location of the apartment building is just great, and I cerainly like it that my rent includes all utilities being paid! When I rented my apartment it had been well maintained and was presented in a clean, bright and welcoming manner. Sure, I knew there was no air-conditioning, but my fans work just fine. The grounds around tha apartments are very nice and kept clean and taken care of. The laundry room is convenient for everyone to use, and it is kept clean and neat.The maintenance man is right on the spot if something needs his attention and the manager is friendly and helpful. I rented a garage, but I like it that there is open parking in the back of the building, which I sometimes use. I didn't have a refrigerator when I moved in, rented one from the office for $ 35.00 per month until I got my own, and it was a nice accommodation. It was a stroke of luck for me that I found this place, and I would recommend it to anyone.

                                      I was a tenant at Vine-Fullerton Apartments, from January of 2002 until October of 2008, and had to move because of a job transfer. I was lucky to find the apartment. I had a one bedroom apartment that was very clean when I saw it and rented it, and it was great because it included all utilities, including a microwave and verticle blinds and all I had to do was rent a refrigerator for only $ 35.00 a month. The parking was open in the back of the building, I could park anywhere I wanted. After a while I needed a garage and was able to rent one that clean and convenient and locked for only $50.00 a month. From time to time during all the years some minor repairs had to be made and the maintenance man was there in great time to take care of the repairs, and everthing was done just right. He as always friendly but professional and I liked this. When I called about the availability of an apartment, the manager answering the phone was polite, friendly and informative and when I came out to see the apaertment I found him to be the same.… See More>
