Do not be fooled by the positive reviews or comments on staff. This complex IS band-aided together as the other reviewer said. We have lived here for over 6 years and it's been completely miserable! The walls are paper thin and the floors dip in places. You can hear when your downstairs neighbor flushes her toilet or uses the sink. The same time every night the house creaks very loudly. Which does not surprise me after I learned that this place has been here since the 70's. The staff are not quick to fix things as we had to wait months for a new AC before the heat wave swept through a couple weeks ago. We also live on the street side. The sun glares in making the apartment hotter. The staff tried to ban extra shades hanging from outside on the balcony, never mind the fact that we are all frying in 100 degree heat! The street is like a freeway, don't expect that nice nap in the daylight hours. There is a noticeable bug problem that has dwindled down since four years ago but the spiders are still huge. There are wide cracks in the side walks which are not safe for little ones. The small park they have is boring for kids and has been defaced with graffiti numerous times. They have also increased the rent for the fifth time during our 6 years, this will be the fifth, to 1710.00 for 2 BD, 2 Bth. It's not worth it for the crappy experience we've had and that you might have. I can also go on with the problems but it would probably take a while. Please think twice.

Not happy with this place at all. Whe moved in 1 year ago with our newborn and the place was dirty, poorly painted and had screws left around. I guess in case we were hungry- not funny at all. Half of the doors didn't work properly and AC did not work. Carpets are supposed to be clean but all my socks were stained the first week of living here. Constant mold issues around bedroom windows and master bedroom shower- they wont replace the fan. The grass area which you would think is great for kids has tons of unlevel and unsafe areas and is littered with dog crap that they refuse to clean-up.

Looking at the prior reviews is very interesting. I moved in about 6 months ago and instantly appreciated the quiet and cleanliness of the complex. There are no issues with vandalism or cars being broken into. I never have any issues with maintenance. They bend over backwards to make sure I continue to be happy. Maybe my neighbors are abnormally quiet but I have no sound issues due to the "thin insulation" others complained about. The laundry facilities are always clean. My kids love playing with the neighborhood children. They even lowered my rent when I had a storage issue. I am thoroughly pleased with the apartment. Maybe all the bad people moved out????

I have lived here for three years with my two daughters. The ladies in the office have always been helpful and professional. I have lived in several apartment complexes in San Jose, and I plan to stay here. The property is always kept up, and I never have to wait if something in my apartment needs attention. I had a toilet leaking several months ago. I left a message on the office voice mail at night when I got home from work. They call me first thing in the morning and asked if they had permission to come in and check on it. When I got home, the toilet was no longer leaking, and the floor was cleaner than I had left it! They make you feel important here.

I've lived here over 5 years & I'll agree that superficially, the office staff is very pleasant. I've never had an issue with the staff. However, I've also come to know some staff who have left, due to the working conditions here. The walls are so thin I can hear my upstairs neighbors cough, sneeze, talking, even peeing in their bathroom. You can hear every step they take upstairs. When they are opening & closing their dresser drawers even. I've had 2 different neighbors above me since I've lived here & it's been the same with both. It's just unreal!. As for the structural/maintenance issues, the people who work here to attend to your complaints problems right away but this place is just band aided together. When I moved in, they had spray painted over cob-webs, none of the screens fit the windows. In the kitchen, maybe 1 of the cupboard doors fits plumb. I found two mice in our apt the 1st week we moved in & we found mice droppings in the deepest parts of the kitchen cupboards when cleaning them out to line the inside of the shelves! The windows are not sealed properly (the original rubber seal has just worn out & cracked away, leaving many areas where there's just open space between the glass & window frame. With no seal there, & open space, cold/hot air to come in along with spiders & insects. Speaking of spiders, I kill an average of 3/day & have done so since I moved in. This is no place for an arachnophobia. These are Huge (1.5 -2 inches long) Wolf spiders & yellow sac spiders primarily, some orb weavers. I have so many videos & pictures of the spiders I've found here. I had to finally learn what kind they were because there were so many & we wanted to be less afraid of them. as well as major ant issues. The bug problem is so bad that they have a bug sprayer on contract to spray units weekly. But the infestation is so bad it is useless. And believe it or not, I could go on & on with even more problems here, without any exaggeration. I have had to stay here in order to keep my child in this school district. Be he's graduated now, so I am looking to move as soon as possible!!!!! While the people who work here are nice, nice it doesn't make-up for ALL of the problems of these apts. They have ONE landscaper here & he does all of the work by himself. He works his butt off & he does an incredible job! But he seems burned out sometimes because this is a huge job for one person alone.

We moved here around 6months ago.i do agree with some ppl that there is bug and spider problems.All the time I can hear what my neighbors are doing . Females at the office are nice however looking at the condition of the house the rent 1565 is too much. The fan in both the bathrooms are not much effective. I can hear when the neighbors use the bathrooms and what annoys me the most is the sound of the flush when I am having my food. That's horrible . The school nearby is really good and that's the only reason I don't want to move elsewhere.
