Im going on my third year at Waterstone and find it overall to be a good value. If youre considering renting at Waterstone, heres some objective information you can actually use.<br>Convenient location: close to major roadways and public transportation. Grocery store, hardware and convenience stores all within easy walking distance. Modest neighborhood, decent and safe. Culturally diverse population.<br>Older property; buildings are showing signs of wear & tear due to age. Mature landscaping; lots of redwood trees (nice). Gated pool area is very nice. The laundry needs upgrading; lots of machines but theyre older, and rough on clothes. Cost of laundry: $1 wash/$1 dry is very reasonable and laundry is open 24/7. Cat-friendly property.<br>Apartments are small but comfortable; nice floor plan and good use of space. Large patio (ground floor) or deck (2nd floor). End units have lots of windows for good natural light and cross-ventilation. Heat is efficient. Water pressure is good and lots of hot water. Tap water contains high mineral content and leaves cloudy white deposits on glass; need to use a water filter on kitchen faucet and clean the dishwasher periodically with white vinegar to eliminate lime buildup. <br>Kitchen is small but open design and all white cabinets and countertops give it a bigger feel. All new Whirlpool appliances are nice! Good lighting in kitchen.<br>Only one, small bathroom. Fiberglass tub/shower is nice and easy to maintain. Bathroom lighting is good, ventilation is poor fan is inefficient.<br>Carpeting is typical nondescript beige; steam-cleaned before move-in but showing signs of age. Bedroom closets are good sized; linen closet is small; front hall closet is large. Most covered (assigned) parking spaces have additional storage unit.<br>Im pretty low-maintenance, but have had no problems with the management. The rent is affordable and Ive not had a rent increase in two years. For my money, you cant find anything better in the area for less.<br>
