Butler Cabana Rating
Butler Cabana is in a great location, and our apartment is spacious. Our primary complaint is the management which is sometimes unresponsive as well as the shoddily designed unit and appliances.
Overall, this is a convenient location with some recently updated apartments. The owners and/or mgmt company isn't too concerned with upkeep. After being gone for a week or more, I always have to run my shower for a few minutes before getting in to let all the build up rust colored water pass through. We also occasionally have furniture and shopping carts in the hallway. When residents move out, sometimes they just leave furniture on the sidewalk. Maintenance is responsive and our apartment is spacious, so it's certainly bearable.
Clean, large, location close to school, a lot of Andersons in the building and in the area
Great setup in a 3 bed / 3 bath
Living here is great - the layout of the apartment is fantastic. We have a huge kitchen and living room. All three of us have our own bathrooms, and each have 2 closets. The drawbacks are that we only have 2 parking spots for 3 people, so we rotate who is on the street. Also the fixtures and finishes could be a bit better - they are beautiful, but not the highest quality. Also the elevator in the building is slow - but that's really minor. Overall, really happy living here - the apartment is very bright as well, and pretty sound proof.
Great location. Great value for your money. Lived here with the same roomates the 2 years of the MBA.
Don't expect much noise or parties, neighbors complaint a lot and they have internal security to shutdown parties after midnight.
Barry Hill Apartments
My overall experience living in Barry Hill has been positive. The apartments have very spacious open floor plans, in-unit washer/dryer, its a short drive to UCLA, its walking distance from many great restaurants and its in a safe area. The rent $$ is slightly higher than average, but it's worth it.
Location + Cleanliness
Close to school, clean and efficient
Santa Monica at Federal 3 bed / 3 bath
Really great apartment for someone just moving to Los Angeles before really having a true feel for the city and its different neighborhoods. The apartment is great - has great kitchen appliances, large windows and lots of sunlight, good floors, nice sized bathrooms and bedrooms. Nothing to really complain about, other than that I wish the apartment had come with 3 parking spots instead of 2 for a 3 bedroom.
Purdue Ohio apartment review
Nice building overall, but amenities are severely lacking considering the price we are paying for the unit. Ants crawl through the cracks in the floors and corners of the kitchen and bathrooms. We have gotten professional treatment several times but they still keep coming back. Not much natural light in the unit (aside from the penthouses). The biggest plus for this building is the proximity to UCLA with mostly updated interiors in a fairly nicer neighborhood. I believe we pay an exorbitant amount for parking, whereas other buildings nearby have a much smaller monthly fee.
The apartment itself is a pretty solid, spacious apartment that's comfortable to live in. We have a good amount of living room and dining room space, a pretty large kitchen, and a very large master bedroom (with a walk-in closet and master bathroom that includes a hot tub). The additional two bed rooms are significantly smaller, but definitely manageable for those with fewer possessions.
Wiseman Management was pretty terrible to deal with though. They are very unresponsive and they also lied to us during the process (we were told we would get two standalone parking spots and instead got two tandem spots). Our apartment also had a number of issues when we moved in including defective power outlets in the bathroom and mold in the water dispenser of the refrigerator. That said, our initial landlord quit, retired, or got fired and is no longer with Wiseman. We haven't had any issues with the new landlord.
The location is great because we are just west of the 405 and a couple blocks away from both Wilshire and Santa Monica, so we avoid a lot of the noise from those heavily congested areas. We're also walking distance to great restaurants (especially ramen and Mexican cuisine) and bars where a lot of UCLA Anderson folks go out to. The Santa Monica beach and pier are also a quick, cheap Uber ride away. We also haven't had too many issues with traffic when attempting to get to campus. Rather than taking the 405, we usually just take Wilshire or Ohio to Sepulveda and then use back roads to get to Sunset and then to campus.
Good building in Anderson nucleus of Brentwood. Awesome to be around classmates, but the neighborhood isn't great. Thre are only a few restaurants within immediate walking distance. Otherwise I have to walk 15-20 to get any type of food. Location is convenient to get to school however.
Great value, huge floorplan
Really enjoying the building so far. Tons of space with living room and kitchen and 2 master bedrooms (out of 3) with walk in closets. Half of residents are families, but they put all the young people together so it works out really well. Never any noise complaints and people are pretty respectful. Not a ton with amenities, but it's Brentwood, next to the key Anderson bars, and lots of sushi nearby. Would definitely rent here again.
Spacious, affordable apartments
You really get a lot for your money. The apartment is huge and nicely designed. The unit has its own washer/dryer and the master bedroom/bathroom is incredible. There are a lot of Anderson people living here as well as other Wiseman properties nearby which is awesome.
I like this apartment, it's close to school and much nicer than any place I thought I'd live in during business school
Spacious apartment for a reasonable price
Easy place to live with reasonable rent. Two parking spots come with the apartment, the third person has to park on the street. In between Wilshire and Santa Monica Blvd so you're close enough to bars / restaurants.
