I have lived at The Arbors for nearly 5 years and I absolutely love it. This is by far the best apartment I have ever lived in. I am a young, married professional and was concerned about finding a nice, quiet apartment in a college town. This is definitely the right place. The apartment manager is fantastic and always responds immediately and conscientiously to any request I have made. The apartment is in great condition with a nice layout and tons of storage. Very little sound travels between apartments. The grounds are extremely well maintained with beautiful landscaping and lots of trees. Parking is plentiful. The complex is gated and feels very safe. The location is extremely convenient to downtown, the university, and south Davis shopping. We haven't had any issue with bugs or pests. The complex is pet friendly but I never hear dogs barking. Although the complex is close to the train tracks and the highway, I almost never notice noise from either of these sources. We found that we became accustomed to the occasional train whistles very quickly and don't even hear them anymore. The Arbors is truly a peaceful, easy place to live!
I love living at the Arbors! It's not only a short ride to campus, but also close to downtown, South Davis shopping plaza and restaurants, and generally in the middle of everything. The apartments themselves are very large with neatly landscaped surroundings, and quiet. I also feel safe being in a gated community with a patrol. The amenities, including the huge laundry room and gym room, and the pool and pool house that are open 24hrs a day, are the main reason why I chose The Arbors! Last but not least, management is absolutely wonderful. I receive responses to maintenance requests or anything within a day and everything is taken care of very quickly.
