Rated 5 out of 5?by sas148 Great place!
We moved in this past January '14 and have had no problems at all thus far. Previous reviews discuss noise but we've had no complaints. Our apartment faces the inside and is away from the freeway and pool so this may be part of the reason we haven't had any noise issues.
The pool is underwhelming though. 3 1/2 feet and it's a tiny square. No spa.
We pay a little extra to be on the 4th floor and this may also help with the noise, from outside and/or above (there are only 4 floors).

Rated 1 out of 5?by L.E. I should have listened...
My boyfriend and I just moved out and so glad we did. We read some reviews online but we didn't listen.
The apartments are nice, but overpriced. The office staff are only there Monday - Saturday so if you work during the week don't count on ever seeing the manager.
Kids running and screaming, constant noise in the hallways. They claimed it was a smoke free community, which was the main reason we moved in, but it wasn't.
The turnover is constant, people seem to want to leave after 3 months. If there is one good thing about living there is the City of Brea. Nice mall, restaurants and easy freeway access...oh don't take an apartment facing the freeway...or the fountain area like we did.
The noise from the freeway is amplified in the fountain area. And the maintenance people are cutting the lawn at 6:00 am.

Rated 2 out of 5?by Joe Nice place but too noisy
This apartment is located next to the mall, downtown Brea, and the freeway, which is great. It is well-maintained and the apartments are spacious. However, the noise is intolerable. Children are left to scream incessantly during the day and in the evening in the pool/courtyard areas without parental moderation. You can hear their screaming throughout the complex. They have noise limits for adults in the evening (which is really just a few hours), but not for kids who are free to scream and disturb the community at all hours of the day. I realize kids are noisy but there is a difference between just playing and being ridiculous. Parents and the management should moderate this noise and put time limits on screaming/use of communal areas for the benefit of everyone who lives here.

Rated 1 out of 5?by Amy87 Price doesn't equal quality
Maybe they were rushing building the apartment during 2008. Each unit has weird dripping noise from the wall. Elevators have problems all the time. Parking garage has leak.. That will damage your car paint. Paying almost $2000 per month definitely not worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5?by becareful Be careful when you move out
Make sure you take lots of photos and document everything when you leave. They will charge you for carpet replacement and full re-paint, even if you never had any pets or if you never even hung anything on the walls. I was charged for replacement carpet after we moved due to "pet stains and urine odor". I never had a cat or dog, or any other pets in our apartment the whole year we lived there. When I contacted the office, they responded with "it might have been the people who lived there before". Just be careful...
