Resident Reviews

submitted by Jordann Y. - |Recommended: YesBeautifully landscaped complex with friendly residents and great management — The location is fantastic, with parks, beaches and jogging trails right next door. The complex itself is beautiful and well maintained, with fantastic landscaping and beautiful gardens, and management and maintenance have been great. We will miss this place.
submitted by Caroline W. - |Recommended: YesGreat Property, love living here — Generally I love living here. The staff is fantastic, the property manager is helpful, attentive, and really great to work with. The noise levels are to be expected for a college town - there are students living here and sometimes they aren't respectful of noise rules, but it's mostly manageable. The pet allowances here are amazing and the building is really cool and reasonable compared to other complexes, but without management letting the place fall apart. Common areas are clean and maintained well and the grounds are beautiful.
submitted by Noel K. - |Recommended: YesBeautiful Property, Friendly Residents, Amazing Management. — The units are very clean and comfortable, and maintenance is prompt and efficient The property manager Melissa, is wonderful She is competent, punctual, very kind and understanding
submitted by Hope Y. - |Recommended: YesBeautiful beachfront Apartments — Living in the Oceanview Apts have been nothing less than a wonderful experience. All the residents that I have interacted with are very pleasant, friendly, and clean. The apartments are well maintained especially through the Corona virus outbreak and staff is quick to respond to concerns and needs. The location is unbeatable.
submitted by Frank C. - |Recommended: YesOverall, good apartment community — Location is ideal, nice, quiet, West Cliff community. I wish the apartments had a washer and dryer in the individual units. I like the individual heaters in each room, so I can isolate a specific room without heating the entire apartment. I'm curious if this apartment has a community app for us to pay rent and post messages to our neighbors. I would like the apartment management to sponsor fun events where we can mingle with other neighbors, since we're new to the area. There's a need for more floor and wall insulation, I can hear my neighbors walking upstairs. Overall, good apartment to rent.
response from property -Hi Frank! Thanks for the kind review! We do have a community app where you can pay rent (resident portal on the app store), but we don't have a service where you can post messages to your neighbors. This is something I can definitely look into, though! I do resident events a couple of times a year, so stay tuned for more info on that. Thanks again, Frank! We're glad to have you :)
submitted by Leah H. - |Recommended: YesPretty Views, Pretty Pricey — Oceanview has the best location you could ask for. Close to West Cliff and the beaches as well as downtown. In a very short walk you can be looking at the ocean - and it's really expensive just for that reason. It's much noisier than most apartments I've lived in, as rules about noise and smoking are not generally followed. Maintenance is also not usually timely. Overall the pros and cons balance out for an okay apartment that's very close to the ocean. And let's be honest, that's all that matters
submitted by Neil R. - |Recommended: YesResponsive, friendly staff — Like most rental experiences, there are ups and downs, but the staff here have been far more attentive, responsive, and reasonable than any other rental I've lived in
submitted by Benjamin K. - |Recommended: YesUpscale beach living — I love it but worry rents will become prohibitive. Nearly completely renovated and modernized 2017-19, from its 1970s origin. Very nice common spaces and amazing location. Clean, well maintained, and friendly . Pet friendly but as anywhere with pets, can be nosey when pet owners are inconsiderate. Most people at this rent level are considerate responsible pet owner.. Its expensive upscale living. Welcome to Santa Cruz the best place to live in the country. I live there 10 years, which speaks for itself
submitted by Vairagya E. - |Recommended: YesLiving in Paradise — It's like being vacation all the time. The people here are friendly and relaxed and you can go for a walk by the sea any time.
response from property -Hi! Thank you for such a kind review! We are so glad you love living here! We sure do love having you!
submitted by Ziyuan N. - |Recommended: YesIt’s fine. — The location is pretty good, close to the ocean and Safeway market. Neighborhood is quiet.
response from property -Hi Ziyuan, Thank you for submitting a review! We appreciate each one of our residents and their feedback. Regards, Melissa Bingham Community Manager
submitted by Taylor S. - |Recommended: YesA very nice place to live, if you can afford it — The Oceanview Apartments is an extremely nice rental community, proven time and again over the 3 years that I've lived here. The grounds and amenities are great, apartments are clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Overall this is a fantastic place to live however, as with most rental units in Santa Cruz nowadays, it is expensive to live here, especially considering its location. I am fearful that the next time rent increases that I may be unable to continue living here, which is extremely distressing, as I never want to leave
response from property -Hi Taylor, Thanks for the great review :) I'm really glad you love living here and appreciate all of the compliments of the staff! We really hope you are able to stay with us when the time comes to renew your lease. Have a great holiday! Melissa

submitted by Dylan R. - |Recommended: NoIt's alright — Beautiful location, but the constant construction and distance from campus can get tired-some.
response from property -Hi Dylan, Thanks for submitting a review! We understand the construction is less than desirable and we hope to have the last bit of construction (the pool/hot tub) completed in mid-January. Thanks for being patient with us during this time! Melissa
