    4.5/5 Anonymous on Mar 1, 2023

    I chose this building specifically for its proximity to Temescal and the chance to get the key amenities I wanted for a reasonable price. It’s not the fanciest place, but it is comfortable and well-run by the building/community manager and the maintenance guy. There have been some issues with the building due to uncontrollable factors, but I’ve really appreciated the communication and effort from the staff to address them. That to me is always important.
