Melanie at Creekside helped make our move in time efficient and easy, also one of the nicest community managers I've ever met! The complex itself is well maintained. The whole staff is extremely friendly. The only down side to these apartments is that there is no guest parking, but the location makes up for that!

Great experience so far. They have valet trash and it is picked up regularly. The entire management team has been super helpful during my move into the apartment. The service/maintenance has always been prompt and location-wise, its conveniently next to a park to go for a stroll. I like it here.

Amazing apartments to stay at! Great management who are very helpful and spontaneous in helping out. The service requests are handled professionally and very fast too. Surrounded by nice parks like the Seal point, bay trail etc. In summary you can expect a warm and peaceful stay at a decent price too. Moved out after a year as I needed a bigger place.
