Bri is sooo sweet and really helpful! (As is everyone in the leasing office) My maintenance request was completed within a few days of putting it in. I really enjoy this apartment complex!

They pretend to be upscale place, but they're not. A lot of thieves in that area, our packages were lost so many times, because someone stole them from hallway. We never ever had that kind of issue before we moved there, it's like a black hole. One morning I came back from my shift and I found our mailboxes broken from the back side, whole bunch of them, and I saw on the back side of our mailbox, that after we have been living there for 3 month (!) there was still the name of previous residents, not ours. When I asked one of the managers about it, she said we are those ones, who supposed to go to the post office and tell them that we're the new residents, who live there. I mean, what??? Since what time it works like that? At every single place we lived before and after we never did that. That's your job, guys. No one is allowed to smoke on the complex territory as well, but you can feel the smell of weed every single day. I'm absolutely ok with parties, and seriously I never complained about it in my life. But one night there was extremely loud music upstairs, I mean you could here it like the party is in your place with music on high volume. It was 2am, and I needed to get up early. I called courtesy patrol twice - nothing. Also, they will send you tons of notices about upcoming maintenance, which always will be delayed and delayed. For example, they send you notice about parking lot maintenance three days in advance. You need your car to be removed from your spot since 8am till 6pm, or they will TOW it. Then you wake up, move your car, and guess what, nothing happens. Next week they send you the same notice, and so on. I mean, what if someone is out of town for business or vacation, for example? No one cares. The same was with notices for different kind of maintenance. If you believe, it's highly secured gated community, it's not true. First of all, there was a story when one thief got in the apartment through the balcony during the day time. And there was another situation, when somebody broke the gates with his/her car, and the gates were like this, broken and wild open, during almost 4 months. Management there really doesn't care about your comfort. They just pretend they do. Yes, it was nice area around, but we couldn't wait till our lease is over. Once it was over, we moved out. I would never recommend it to anybody. Think twice before you make your decision. Thank you.

I just moved in to a 2 bedroom apt and am loving it! Kristi & Shanon in the management office worked with us to make our move in very easy and answered all our questions. It's very quite and all the neighbors have been super friendly. Also, the pool and jacuzzi a great place to relax and unwind after a long day. Two thumbs up!

I've had no complaints in the last two years of living here. The amenities have exceeded my expectations especially living this close to the beach west of the I-5 fwy. They do a great job offering residents special perks such as free weekly tennis lessons, outdoor yoga and periodically bring in food trucks. The property consistently stays up to date with outdoor painting, facility maintenance and have beautifully landscaped lawns. In the front office, I especially appreciate Adrianna. She has always gone above and beyond any time I've called needing help with something.

I'm kinda just writing this to refute some other recent reviews which seemed unfair to me. The prices are competitive for the area and for what the apartments are (I was paying just a bit less living in some dump in Oceanside tbh), the apartments are decently constructed (the walls are *not* paper thin!), maintenance requests are usually filled within 24 hours or less, the buildings themselves are decently maintained. The complex *does* allow dogs, there's just an additional rental fee for that. I've left my car in my spot for days (and left it in an uncovered spot for days too) with no issues. The apartments look nice. I'm happy to come home every day. I haven't ever had a problem with management despite some bank issues on my end which I'm sure were annoying to them. Their website's resident portal makes putting in requests and paying the rent easy. My apartment is facing the freeway. There's noise when the windows are open but it isn't all that bad. When the windows are closed, I don't hear it at all. Might be because my building is a little lower than the others (E building) I guess. My biggest pet peeve is honestly just the size of the speed bumps but that's mostly just because a lot of people come to an almost complete stop before they'll go over them even if they are in a raised truck. No idea why they do that!

The apartments are not bad but a lot of noise from the freeway next to it. Service was also pretty slow every time something broke down

Okay so I've only been here about 3 months and you'd think when paying $1800 for an apartment you'd have 5 stars.. They could easily earn their other 2...
