My boyfriend and I lived here for a year and it was an AWFUL experience! The owners 'WEST SEATTLE APARTMENTS' are very cheap, not to mention passive aggressive! When we moved in, we were hopeful, there was a nice landlord-who lived on site. He shortly retired and things went downhill-FAST. The management changed 3 times during our year here (in terms of who we had to contact for this and that). Our experience was owners/management that will say what you want to hear and do absolutely nothing!!! A large number of destructive frat boys live here, it's LOUD, walls are thin, maintenance is eh, (our floor was under construction and went un-painted and un-finished for months), the building is an absolute piece of CRAP. Apparently, the owner built it himself with the help of other non-professionals. The roof of the entire building leaked every time it rained (including inside our unit which was never fixed during our lease). The other leaks have now been fixed after MONTHS of construction. Watch out though because the leaks keep popping up all over the place. The "rooftop deck" is literally a piece of tar (which although has a great view) led to many, many, many, sleepless nights. The top floor is soooo hot. Last summer it got so hot we had to stay two nights in a hotel (keep in mind we were underneath hot tar). To top it off, after all of our complaints, rude neighbors, sleepless nights, leaking ceiling....they had the nerve to keep our ENTIRE security deposit!! NOTE: we did not trash the place, we cleaned it, and although we had pets, we made an effort to clean the carpet (since it was not professionally cleaned they charged us $300). We have rented from many places in Seattle and this management company WEST SEATTLE APARTMENTS (comprised of North Admiral Townhomes, North Admiral Court, Avalon West, Terrace Villa, West Ridge, Strada 67, Fremont Court, and Camano) is BY FAR the WORST rental experience we have had in Seattle.
