Rent is far too expensive for subpar services and conditions. They only have 1 trash can that is inconveniently located, residents have to put trash on top of their cars to transport it. Poop is everywhere. They charge a lot to have pets yet I have… See More

No good at all the paint job is terrible. The grounds looks terrible. The walls are so thin I can hear people talking, washing their clothes and their tv. The head manager is rude and disrespectful. There is a big staff turnover in the office.

Generally a decent community to live in. It is a very large complex and any issues I have run into are minor given the size. Relatively quiet day or night. Convenient access to major roads, shopping, entertainment and restaurants. See More

The rent is too high, the management has a poor disposition, and maintenance staff is horrible! Parking isn't the best. It is close to local freeways, and restaurants, bars, shopping, and movie theater. But that's about it!

Always a pleasure when conducting business with your staff. As well, the residents are cordial and friendly. The one concern that I would like to see enhanced is a curb appeal towards the back of the units.
