We rented a very nice unit with a decent view. Our first disappointment was with the office staff...rude and unhelpful. Fortunately, we only had to deal with them one other time.
Ingress and egress into the property is not easy and parking is tight; especially if there is a full-size vehicle next to you. Even if everyone parks dead center, not much room to get in and out of your car.
The poperty is directly accross the street from a popular park. Convenient for those who have kids with them.
Our unit, and several we considered, only had A/C in the living room. This turned out to be a MAJOR problem. We had an ocean view which meant the setting sun shined directly into the unit; including the master bedroom. The bedroom traped the heat from the sun. Even with the ceiling fan and three other fans going, the bedroom did not cool off enough for a comfortable nights sleep. One us had to sleep on the couch under the only A/C and the other had to tough it out. Opening the windows did not help. Leaving the air and fans on all day did not either. It is just uncomfortable in the bedroom....period.
Also, we had construction next door for one day. Very annoying. Also, we learned management changed something with the plumbing about a year ago which has caused toilets to stop up. Also, annoying.
If I could find a unit with full A/C, I might consider staying here again but given everything, I recommend staying elsewhere.
