From my perspective, this apartment is an excellent place to live! Moreover, I say that is because of the living condition, safety, and location.
Regarding living condition, this apartment is great, since I am a student in dvc, I've been lived in a different apartment that located in Pleasant Hill. In my opinion, this is the best; the laundry room has a lot of washer/dryer, so you don't have to wait. This apartment provides free wifi access to all resident, so you don't have to pay the internet. Moreover, the place is very quiet since most of the residents in here aren't the college student. Furniture is very new too. I live very happily in these two years.
Regarding safety, this place is safe, if you are living near DVC, you will really see the difference, two of my friends got robbed in there.... In contrast, I haven't seen any robbery that happens here.
Last but no least, the reason for me to give a high rating is because of the location. 5 min walking to ace hardware, 1 min walking to Chop Chop Korean restaurant, 2 min walking to Honda sushi (which is also a great place to eat Japanese food) and around 10 min walking to Safeway, and 15 min walking to DVC. So you got everything you need within walking distance!
Sadly, I gotta move to Berkeley to continue my academic; I am gonna miss this place so much.
P.S. Other yelp review are right, there has been swap between the manager and in the first few month, everything was messed up, in February, they messed up with their database and all the rent goes crazy (I got over-charged by $500), and I went to the office and told them I got overcharged, they are willing to change it back.
