submitted by Zhe Z. - |Recommended: YesPACIFICGARDENS AT GENESEE — I just checked in this apartment. It is a nice area with comfortable settings so far.
submitted by Noriko K. - |Recommended: YesOffice Magager — I like Natalija who is or was managing the property. She is not only competent but also very pleasant. I met a different lady in the office this morning for the first time since I had some issues in my place. I don't know if she was in a bad mood or she has just an unpleasant personality. She made me feel like I was being blamed by her. I have paid the expensive rent, so at least I want to meet a pleasant manager when I need some help. I hope the lady is just temporary. Five stars for Staff is for Natalija.
submitted by Nancy R. - |Recommended: YesReview — I would say it’s clean and a nice setup however noise can get pretty loud neighbors are not considerate with noise I’m usually tolerable of noise but neighbors are too loud especially during week nights. Also the patio is a plus however with units at bottom it is not ideal since there is no privacy in between.

submitted by Allisen J. - |Recommended: YesGood pricing, but you get what you pay for — A good place to live for individuals and small families. It's safe compared to some of the bigger complexes in the area. Water, trash, parking, and utilities are paid separate so watch out for that, but it's not bad. There is little tolerance for loud parties, so if that's what you're looking for please don't come here. We have had issues with fighting neighbors and pot smoke coming in our bedroom window in the early morning, but you can talk to the manager about it. The units are very simple and sometimes the paint job is shoddy, but it can be a home. 5 stars for the maintenance crew. They get things done soon after you send in the request.
submitted by Joyce T. - |Recommended: YesCleaned well maintained functional apartment with plenty of storage — While apartments are smaller than what I'm used to, they are fully functional with plenty of storage space, heat, dishwasher and washer dryer in the unit which is a desirable. Unfortunately, due to laws with pets and being in an area with a University, noise levels can have undesirable outcomes with barking and noisy guests. The complex is well equipped with a pool jacuzzi and parking, however guest parking is lacking. Staff are very friendly and responsive to tickets for maintenance, which is a huge positive wherever you live
submitted by Valentino R. - |Recommended: YesMy Review of Pacific Gardens — I love the area and the vicinity of the community to everything i need to access such as stores, dog park, and work. it's actually motivated me to walk more. the grounds have plenty of grassy areas for my dogs. I like the appearance of our apartment, our patio balcony.
submitted by Katrina-Bianca D. - |Recommended: YesI absolutely love living at this property — Aside from the bearable noise from time to time of our upstairs neighbor, living here is great Mostly quiet and neighbors are nice Easy access to fwy and close to utc mall
submitted by Joanna B. - |Recommended: YesGreat apartment — This was a great apartment I really enjoyed my time here. Great layout.
submitted by Alexssia P. - |Recommended: YesNo good guest parking — There should be hard enforcements on parking when it comes to guest parking because it is unacceptable to invite guests over when there is nowhere to park
submitted by Christina C. - |Recommended: YesGood for the price — Generally it is good but the management is not particularly helpful or friendly. Also, the rules about what you can or cannot do on your own patio are annoying and the towing company they use is overly active about towing from the future resident spots but they won't warn you.
submitted by Doug W. - |Recommended: YesThis is a wonderful place to live — All apartments in San Diego should be this good. Great people, and great staff here. I certainly enjoy living here.
submitted by Joshua M. - |Recommended: YesNice quite community, parking enforcement is very stupid — the parking program is ridiculous, never get any email reminders that your pass is about to expire. and the parking management company can tow any car in your spot I agree with everyone having an assigned parking spot, but is SO STUPID that someone has the authority, other than the renter, to tow a vehicle without even calling the renter to see if the car parked in their spot is allowed to be there. this is a service that we the renters have to pay for and then they can tow the vehicle that you parked in your spot. the renters should be the only one to have the authority to have a car towed that is in their spot. Ridiculous that we have to pay 35 a year and they can tow your car without even calling the renter to see if the car parked in their spot is allowed to be there. Assign a spot to each renter and the renter should be the only one with the authority to have a car towed if parked in their spot. In short the whole parking permit fee and not checking with the renter before they tow IS VERY VERY DUMB. It is over 300 to get the car out of impound and I the renter parked it there. Unessecary fee to the renter and no courtesy call before they tow is beyond STUPID. TERRIBLE ARRANGEMENT AND AN ADDITIONAL COST TO THE RENTER THAT IS NOT NECESSARY
submitted by AMALA K. - |Recommended: YesBeautiful complex with some tenant issues — The management is great. Natalia is always quick to respond to any requests and help us with anything we need. The maintence crew is also great. They are very diligent and constantly fixing working on beautifying the complex grounds. My only real negative remarks are about some of the tenants. No one is following the 25lb max dog rule, large dogs everywhere and owners are terrible at picking up their poop or keeping their pets of all sizes on leashes. I worry every time I’m out with my leashed small dogs Incase some other dog will rush at us off leash. The garden areas do have a big flea problem which is annoying as my 9 year old dog has fleas for the first time in her life since moving here. I wish there were more parking available but Decoro always has spots available. Overall a great complex.
