Incredibly rude customer service. Went to Resident Services for a mail key replacement, they sent me to sales because the "keys are kept on site". One woman in Sales, Jackie, was patient and helpful, but clearly there was a disconnect between the communications of both offices.… See More

The apts by the so called courtyard are terribly noisy from cackling people to screeching babies at all hours of the night. You can even hear a person sneeze at the townhouses next door. The carpet or paint has a foul smell. I'm thoroughly disappointed and… See More

Want your money refunded forget it. They will keep your $$ to pay for new carpet, and paint. Maybe a class action, and going to the newspaper could help. Parking sucks, and they tow all the time. They don't listen to anything you have to say.… See More

The apartments are good and also the neighbourhood. The park is also very near by. Just be aware that San Mateo do not pay referral money even after promising.
