Resident · 1997 - 2005
I've been a long term renter at the complex (7 years.) It was far enough from central UCSB to be quiet and had respectable tenants. Rent increased from a steal up to market rates, but was still worth it. Ample laundry facilities, pool, landscaping refinished (coinciding with rent increases.) Drawbacks: Old buildings and infrastructure (>40 years.) My unit leaks during rains, and plumbing is always backing up from the sewer through the sinks, and flooding the floor. Maintenance very helpful in fixing problems, but mgmt. not always quick to handle more involved issues. Have waited several weeks to have hot water problems addressed. End of last year and this year was atrocious for noise and disrescpectable people. Loud parties, fights, people yelling, loud car stereos in the parking lot, obnoxious drunks hanging around the stairwell and courtyard, etc. Management was not responsive to this, after many requests to look into things. Was asked about moving into another apt. rather than solving the tenant issues. Seriously reconsider before renting here. Plan to move out next year to a better place not managed by Sierra Property.
