I have loved living at the Arbors for the last 2 years: the location and complex are great, the staff are accommodating and friendly, and the rent is affordable. I got very lucky to have the opportunity to live here and even brought my best friend into the Arbors after my first year here. Karen, the manager, does a great job building the community, and is happy to work with residents so that everyone leaves the Arbors feeling like they had a positive experience. 10/10, couldn't recommend more highly.
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.
