So recently me and my husband tried to apply here and it was such a terrible experience. Basically, if you don't have a 700 credit score forget about it! You will not get the place despite having a clean record, and also being able to pay for it. Our gross was waay over 3x the rent still NOT GOOD ENOUGH! Me and my husbands credit was in the mid 600's and no evictions! With a great rental history! A CLEAN BACKGROUND PERIOD! A GREAT record! We negotiated that since our credit is not at 700 that we would be able to pay for first and next months rent! Unfortunately it was not enough! This private owner is strict! I MEAN SOOOO STRICT with their applications. So, if you don't have 700 as a credit score, forget about it! They will take your 35$ application fee, tell you what you want and you will be left heartbroken. Sorry! We are really good people too, but I guess we are not good enough to live here for whatever reason. Don't waste your money applying here. Blessings!

    I've been living here for a year so I think I can give an experienced opinion. Now, bear in mind, my former apartment complex was in a dangerous neighborhood, had thin walls, horrible plumbing and unreliable staff so I could be biased. But I love living here. It's very quiet and I think the grounds are maintained well. Especially in the central courtyard. If I have an issue (very rare) I can visit the manager on site or give her a call. As for people that commented about her having "favorites", I haven't noticed any of that. To be fair, a lot of those comments seem extremely personal. I would not want to know an apartment manager well enough to know what their spouse and parties are like. That's just weird. We pay our rent on time and go on our merry way and no one bothers us. Just how we like it. And honestly, I think she's nice. She really cares about the place and is always double checking to make sure nothing's amiss. We face the street so the noise can be a little loud but if we close the window, it reduces a lot. I like the… See More>

      The owners are really picky which can be good.My family and I lived here for almost a year. We had an ant problem right away and were told by many neighbors we had to take care of it because management wouldnt do anything. So we did. Kids are suppose to be supervised outside but they arent. Several times we had kids playing outside near our backdoor and they would throw things at the windows. We finally told the manger who said she would talk to the parents but it kept happening. One day they threw a ball at our sliding glass door and my hubby took it. That parent came to out door and after that it stopped. They turned off water twice without telling us. Our last month we were there we got roaches from our neighbor! Then when we moved the manger incorrectly had our deposit amount wrong on our move out paper. We called her and called her but she never called back. Finally we had to go down there to get it taken care of. They charged us 50$ for roach traps but never gave us an offical reciept. We called about this and she still… See More>

        MOVING BACK IN

        Me and my family had lived there for 10 years before we moved out. Now we are planning to move back in. Noise is NOT A PROBLEM whatsoever. And as far as crime, a few cars were broken into that were parked on the street. The parking for residents is gated and garages and home have never been touched. The creek bed behind the apartments is not scary and ever since the city has been working on the bike trail that runs thru it, it is always being watched and maintained. I loved the comunity and the managers grew to be our close friends. The apartments participated in activities that involved and welcomed EVERYONE. The best times are Halloween where we "boo" the neighbors. A fun game on knocking and leaving a treat, then the game continues on. Pool during the summer time is a blast. The only thing is that the laundry room is a bit price, but that's my only complaint. Loved my home here so much that we are going back. Maintenance was taken care of very quickly. The man and his son come every Thursday and takes care of whatever needs fixing in a timely manner.

          Avoid Arroyo Casa Apartments and disregard the review(s) that give it a 5 star rating!

          That is the manager--she is the only one that has been there for 10 or more years there. Usually people save up for a house or condo and move on. There IS high crime there. Break-ins all the time and the manager is nosy and a gossip. Not to mention a real twitch to deal with. They always have an exterminator truck spraying ofr bugs or ugh- rats! The river bed, if you want to call it that is a real problem, with air-borne crud to breathe in all of the time. Drive by Tustin Avenue after 8 o'clock and see how dark and dismal the place is! One laundry room clear over on one end of the complex. Manager has her own washer/dryer, but chooses to take her clothes to the common laundry, probably to snoop on people!c Avoid this dungeon!

            You Have Got To Be Kidding!!!

            The last review that was written has to be by someone that has an ax to grind of some kind. I have lived at Arroyo Casa for over 10 years and I only know of one instance that a truck was stolen. I do not know where this person gets that it is in a high crime area. Let them go find a better place in the area (they can't). As for the creek bed, it does have water a good part of the time, but does this person know that the water table is low (if they know what the water table is). I find the noise level on the street to be low. The grounds are kept up, the children are able to play outside if they are supervised by an adult. I find this complex to be very safe and clean. The manager is very good and has been here for many years, so she is doing something right. To this person, if you do not like it here MOVE and give someone else your grief and unhappiness.

              Pass on this place! Don't rent here!!

              High crime area here, especially in river bed. Dusty all the time and very scary at night with it being so dark over that dry river bed. Noisy traffic noise from Tustin Ave. Gal in the office could stand for classes in civility, didn't impress me in the least. Not a good place for kids, or anyone for that matter.

                Dust and allergens

                Bad for you if you are sensitive to the environment or have emphysema. It's right over a dry river bed that maybe has water in it two months of the year. Take a drive at night to see the place from the road. It is so dark here at night. They are real stingy with the lighting. So many better places that have decent trees and landscaping with private doorways than here for you to choose from that aren't all about dust and have decent lighting!

                  "I know for a fact that both were posted by a person who was asked to leave because he was a bad tennant and a spousal abuser to boot"...just a tho't on that resonse: bad tenants are one's that don't pay rent on time..and the one person that would know that is mr/mrs mgr, so the person posting that review is either 1) the mgr or 2) a tenant who the mgr blabbed to, which is not only unprofessional, but unethical!

                    Best apartment and management out of 3 places I've lived.

                    We lived her for over 3 years after living in 2 other places for only a year at a time. The current on site manager truly cares about her tenants and does whatever she can to help them. She would ask us once a year if we needed anything upgraded. When we asked for new linoleum, it was installed within 30 days. They truly want to maintain their units in the best shape possible. The area is very quiet, even with families with children. Apartments are basic, but clean. Never had a parking problem (like other places I've lived) and did not see any signs of criminal activity except for tagging once on the outside sign. The only reason we moved is because we bought a house. If I could be picky, I wish the laundry room was more in the middle of complex than at the one end, but that's being very picky. If you are quiet, pay on time, and don't want a lot of hassles, this is a great place to live.

                      OK Building, Good Maintenance, Quiet Surroundings

                      My family has lived here for a while. From what I know, many people have lived here for a long time. The noise level is very low, sometimes eerily quiet for a community with many young people and families. Even on the weekends it is fairly quiet. We've personally seen only one police car here during the day time a few months ago, and have not heard any reports of crime. We usually only hear from management via the occasional newsletter. Maintenance requests are dealt with in a timely fashion, especially compared with other apartment complexes. The buildings are OK. Apartments have fair space. Just a simple comment on other reviews - From what I have observed, the manager does have tenants that are her friends, but we are neither friends nor enemies with her - just tenants. I think it is probably natural for her to become friends with people she lives close to and deals with on a daily basis. My family chooses not to get involved in the friend/foe circle that is talked about here on this website - it's pretty childish.

                        Manager gives perks to people who kiss up to her.....

                        ...she decorates the trees and the whole complex with halloween. she has "private parties" with a few residents who are her friends. she gossips about other tenants she doesn't like. major crime has happened sevral times here, including a tenant who walked in to people's homes in the middle of the night and robbed them as they slept. she acts nice but is actually a screaming maniac if she is ever crossed...

                          Best apartment out of 3 I've lived in!

                          This is a great place to live. If you have a mature personality, like a quiet and clean apartment, and if you don't mind following the rules, this is a place you should check out. The apartments are simple and clean, power and gas are very reasonable. Central air keeps the place cool and warm as needed. Manager lives on site and is available whenever needed. One car garage plus one reserved outsite spot. This is the first place I've lived at where I have had no problem with someone else parking in my spot! Tenants are very nice and quiet. No junk allowed on patios! The only real problem is that visitor parking is on the street. Big laundry room, pool, grounds look nice year round, and flowers are kept up or replanted. If you're tired of super large apartment complexes and large corporations, this is a privately owned complex which makes a huge difference in how it is run, and that difference is for the better.

                            NO PLACE BETTER TO LIVE!!!!

                            I have been here for a very long time and have seen 3 managers. The one we have now is by far the best of any. For what we have the price is very reasonable. We are gated, have garages and also parking spaces behind the gates. Ground are kept up very well. Maintance is done ASAP if you have anything wrong. Very friendly people. Very quiet day and night. I would reccommed this complex to any of my friends. Also I feel very safe living here. We have never had any problems.

                              Rat prob never goes away. Ms. Diva Bee has her friends and enemies here. Don't become one. She shows her foes who's boss. Husband says yes dear, he knows not to cross her ever. So be prepared to bring your Bose headphones if you stand up to her--your eardrums are going to shatter! Owner looks other way at problems. Parking's a bummer. A bad ----place for sure. If you're in to Halloween, that's her big holiday.

                                the last reviewer is exactly right. the management didn't like the negative review so tried to discredit them by saying someone upset posted them and even had us the view dislike the "false reviewer" even more by adding that he is a spousal abuser. what a bunch of noobs. ya, 5 star management indeed, morons. get a clue. if you are going to lie, at least don't make it so obvious; its insulting.

                                    The two negative reviews posted about Arroyo Casa are bogus. I know for a fact that both were posted by a person who will remain nameless that was asked to leave because he was a bad tennant and a spousal abuser to boot. <br>Arroyo Casa is a nice place to live with great management.

                                        okay, if you´re not planning to stay long. also a very unsafe place, no security, little or no lighting in parking lot, a lot of crime and vandalism. you´re going to hear a lot of traffic noise, and people up at all hours.
