Resident · 2017 - 2019
My wife and I moved in here March of 2017 and they were undergoing management changes and doing some renovations. So my first piece of advice is disregard any reviews prior to 2017. We had a 4 month old when we moved in and they were wonderful. Peter was the acting manager and is a very nice man. Nina is now the manager and you will not find a more pro-active and responsive manager. Anytime we had a question or concern, I had an immediate response. It did not matter the day or time. Our unit is nice and the layout is perfect. It is also very hard to find an affordable place with a washer and dryer. If there is a listing check it out. We compared several units on the west side and this was our favorite. We gave the deposit the same day we looked. The pool and spa are clean. Our unit is next to the pool and see the pool guy come every Friday, year around, rain or shine. In the 2 years we have been there I have never seen the pool or spa closed for maintenance. The area around the pool is cleaned and maintained regularly as well. The complex is really quiet with a lot of friendly people. Several times last summer we felt like we had a private pool because not many people were there (at least at the same time). The parking is tandem in a locked garage and I believe most units come with a storage locker (we have one). Safety wise, we haven't had an issue. My wife and 2 kids (now) come home an I don't worry about them. The walkability of this place is awesome. We walk to Starbucks, Whole foods, New York bagel, Trader Joes, Ralphs, SF saloon, Cheng Du, and Don Antonio's without an issue (except those that come with 2 kids). I enjoy walking and have no problem walking to Sawtelle Japan town...sometimes ill hop on a Bird scooter. The expo line metro train is half a mile heading to Santa Monica or Downtown and only a couple bucks. We are moving out soon because our now family of 4 has outgrown the apartment and we are moving to the burbs. I wanted to write this review because people who are satisfied with their stay don't tend to leave reviews which makes it hard to decide on a new place. If you are a respectful person, you will really enjoy this place.
