Horrible Apartment, Horrible Management

Apartment was dirty and sticky upon move in. The apartment was renovated before I moved in, but whoever they hired to do the work does not care about quality. The carpet was installed horribly with nails coming out and poking you and the shower head… See More>

      Awful. Worst place I have ever lived. Do not move here if you have a family. There are druggies everywhere and management will not evict them. Do not move here because of the pool, gym, jacuzzi, etc. they have not been available for use since… See More>

        Resident 2017


        This is by far the absolute worst apartment I've ever lived in. I'll sum up our horrific experience here. Issue #1: Noise. We got stuck with a roadside apartment, and the road noise is absolutely horrific. You can't even hear someone standing right in front… See More>

          Overall, my rating would've been satisfactory to good, had it not been for the ridiculous parking situation. The complex is nice and well-kept, save for the traffic noise, most notably the fire trucks & ambulances every other hour. The office staff did a VERY POOR… See More>

            I've lived in this complex for the past 15 months. I live directly on the corner and I have to say the noise isn't bad. I have the best neighbors who are very kind and supportive. Management has been very reasonable considering we put such… See More>

              I have only been at this place less than two months, basically pretty quiet I see a few questionable people lurking but not too bad. My problem is they don't keep it up entirely like they advertise. The apartment was poorly cleaned when I moved… See More>

                I lived here for nearly 4 years because it was cheap for a while. First I will start off by what is good about it. The area is lovely. The greenery is as well. There's a fireplace for the winter and a washer in the… See More>

                  The staff is overall nice as long as you do not have to deal with the manager herself, she has a bad attitude. The rent price includes water bill. The office is next to the pool, so they frequently complain to the people at the… See More>

                    We appreciate all responses and feedback, whether positive or negative, here at Santee Villas. Unfortunately we are not a gated community, and therefore it is not possible to ensure completely restricted access to the community. In order to remedy this and ensure the safety of our residents we employ an after-hours courtesy patrol. This security company is well-equipped to handle concerns regarding unruly guests and other disturbances. Additionally, the great city of Santee offers a non-emergency service line for further assistance if necessary. With joined efforts we can try to eliminate these issues. As always, the rental office (located next to the pool) is open and available for your convenience every day of the week from 9am-6pm. We are committed to providing excellent service and take pride in handling all your residency needs in a timely manner. Maintenance is available Mon-Fri, and there is also an after-hour emergency maintenance service. We strive to accommodate your needs to the best of our abilities. Thank you NB for your understanding in this situation and your continued loyalty over these years. You have been a valuable resident and we are glad to know you appreciate our efforts to keep our community peaceful and balanced. We hope to see you, and all of our other residents and families, at our annual October Bash on October 27th, 2012.

                    Over-priced, noisy, and rude staff

                    Waaaay overpriced! You can find a much cheaper apartment just 10-15 min from this location. Also not a good place if you have a baby- very noisy with construction, etc, 6 out of 7 days of the week. Maintenance is very slow to respond to… See More>

                      It's one of the better Apt. complexes in Santee

                      My wife and I have been here for a year and a half now and our overall thought of this place is good. A bit pricey for the size of a one bedroom. The parking situation flat out sucks. The grounds keepers keep the grounds… See More>

                                      Reading thru some of the other reviews, I suspect these are people who are not used to Southern California, or who havent been long on their own. Its always important to view the apartments to ensure they meet your needs. It seeems most… See More>
