The worst experience I ever had is staying here!! The management is ignored of your issues, ignores your complain/calls and only wants to get money out of your pocket. Everything is old and with little to no maintenance; laundry rooms are dirty usually. I wouldn't recommended… See More

The staff are horrible, the office accepts packages and then never bothers to tell you about them. Their excuse is that they're understaffed. Great, rent is 2500+ for an apartment with no dishwasher and you can't afford a minimum wage employee to sit at a desk… See More

I am very sorry that your car has been damaged twice while parked on the street. I would be more than happy to speak with you about the parking situation near your unit and see if there is anything we can do. Please give me a call at 650-345-4852. I can also set up a time for us to meet so we can also talk about the constant tub clog and water issue with the maintenance supervisor to see what we can do to get this resolved.
