Overall I have no real big complaints……but……I am still waiting for the ice maker to be installed in my freeze……! I was told it would take approximately two months but has been longer…….!!


We moved in here in 2021 and so far have been truly enjoying living here. We love the community and location of the apartment complex. Also, staff is super friendly which makes the whole experience even more enjoyable.

So far it has been good. I am new so I’m still settling in. Only headache is getting the packages all the way from the room. It’s A distance

Good service and the staffs are very professional. The place is getting a little outdated and some stuff doesn't make sense. Overall a good place to live.



The place, the pool, the staff, maintenance is all almost perfect. The get togethers, the parties, the coffee mornings are just the bread and butter on top of it all. Very enjoyable place..



I love AO. Everyone is so friendly. Pool area is always better. Whenever I have a problem in my apartment, they try to solve it as soon as possible



I have been living here for a long time but sometimes I do have barrier communication because we are deaf. I don’t have great resources accessible



I love the amenities…like a resort vacation every day. The gym has all you need. The system for packages is excellent. I enjoy the garbage shoot which may be funny but is convenient.



Management is respectful and helpful; very professional conduct. Response times can be a bit delayed but they work hard and are diligent in customer satisfaction.

Pro: Good location, clean, close to Ralph grocery store, Starbucks, school and beach. W/D in unit, hardwood floor and security gate. Unfortunately, too many homeless around community screaming at night and wake you up.



The location is quiet, but close to a lot of things to do. The maintenance team responds quickly. The walls are thick concrete so I rarely ever hear a sound from neighbors.

The apartment community is good with a lot of friendly people. The only thing that I think the apartment needs to work on is making the maintenance faster in a way that they dont spend months fixing something.



The problem has some maintenance issues upon moving in. The ventilator in the shower will not turn off. The apartment is spacious, and the staff is really nice



I've enjoyed my time at AO. Love our apartment and the area. Only hiccups are the elevator issues that happen quite and some treadmills that are not working. My dog loves it here.

New management is amazing. Helpful and hardworking. Keep apartment complex clean and safe. When we call the office for any reason they answer and follow up as soon as Possible



Overall the experience here is great. I think some of the appliances should be replaced/renovated considering the price of rent here, but I have no major complaints.



People smoke marijuana, dogs pee in hallways, crazy people keep yelling in hallways (Mostly on weekends). Parking is good and secure. Apartments are clean with hardwood floor and W/D in unit.

The new maintenance team had a hard start but I see the change. Looking forward to the future changes. Also thank you for keeping the food trucks... We love it. I'm excited for the new color scheme.

Very happy with our new apartment thus far. Robert has helped us throughout the entire application process and continues to assist in anything we need. Love the unit and the view and the pools.

Great location & amenities. AO is centrally located to all ur needs. On a clear day, u can see the beach...which is always a plus. Ralph's is downstairs, nice walking trail takes u straight in.



Clean apartments, hardwood floors, W/D inside units. Panoramic view, close to grocery store and school. Walking distance to metro. Starbucks, restaurant under the building.



I am enjoying it so far, for the most part. We moved in on Saturday, but our AC unit was broken when we arrived. It is annoying because AC was a big selling point for us, and we have yet to use it, because it was broken before we moved in.



We've had a wonderful experience so far! There is plenty of storage between the outside closet, big bedroom closet, bathroom cabinets and hallway door closet. Love the package concierge too, so much better than packages just being left on the street.

It could be a quieter with more visible security. The trash areas need to be cleaner or enforced. Enforce cleaning up after ur pets even if it's urine.



Close to school, washer and dryer, clean apartments, great views in 7 floor, close to grocery store. Good security with courtesy patrol at night. Onsite management.


Super location, security, and parking.

The AO is in a great location, and easy access to grocery stores, Starbucks, the DMV, the metro and highway which is perfect, I love the environment with the 2 pools, the gym and The dog park :)



I dont like this place because it is nosiy dirty. Package delivery is not efficient. Parking lot is so far. The wall doesnt block any noise.



Great location, clean and safe complex at a great price with helpful and friendly staff. Moved here from San francisco and feels like a breath of fresh air.

Starbucks in a hidden spot. There is no parking and no drive through so its more of a quick pick and go. It's much better if you make your order online than trying to order at the storefront.

Great Pool! Great Gym! Great people! Love it here! The new train is a hop skip & a jump away! Nice to go downtown to Chinatown & Disney Concert Music Hall! 🐬💚🐬



I've lived at AO for nearly 4 years and have had a great experience so far! Helpful office staff, ongoing renovations, friendly neighbors, and the perfect location.



I appreciate all the hard work of keeping everything clean and neat . It like living in s resort. Everything is so convenient . The metro is one block and grocery store next door

Well maintained, good administration, and accommodating staff. Two minor negatives; parking spaces are two narrow and hallways badly need upgrading.

I have lived here a long time and this is by far the best management team so far! The amenities are great and there are two great eateries and a Starbucks downstairs!



The staff has been so helpful and willing to help with everything. It was an easy move in and a great place to live. Easy access and lots around the area.

Good job! I like this apartment idk why you are making me feel rite so much but I haven't lived here long so I don't have much to say I apologize

Absolutely love living here. I've been here for 6 years and have always loved my friendly neighbors and attentive management team. Always have to shout out the apartment beautification team and maintenance.



So far, so good. Management has been responsive to maintenance requests. But theft of packages is an annoying problem. The hallways are horrible.

I have been enjoying my time here so far. But the pool is so cold! Not what was advertised to me. Other than that, it's been pleasant. It is a bit noisy on the side I live with the street but not the apartments fault.



So far I love living here at Ao apt the community is very universal it's quiet and really vibrant. I love seeing the elderly ladies enjoy there day out at the pool side.

I think that AO Apartsments is a very nice place to stay at and that it has a great location. But I dont like is the open hours for the pool

Amazing community and amenities. Beautiful furnishings in the renovated apartments and surrounding common area. Best living west of the 405.

I love to stay at AO Apartments. Unfortunately has the printer down in the room next to the lobby never been working. I also wish there was some workout bands for the gym.



I love it here. Just wish they would do more activities for kids. Like host an easter egg hunt or have an art activity once a week. I think it will help the little kids get find one another.



I love it here!!!!!! A.O. is doing great!!!!!! The upkeep and the cleanliness are out standing!!!!!! I have refered my friend Kerry Rous. She is now in the prosses of getting her voucher from Day Break. She really wants to live here. The upkeep and t...



It is convenient location, decent amenities and the layout of our apt is nice. There are a lot of issues ... It's dirty, other tenants who live her are questionable, appliances are old or don't work- even in the renovated units...

Doing good in general, we could use more security in the building, may be more cameras to upscale security in the hallways and for sure a camera in the bicicle cage, so far they have stolen 3 of my bikecicles



New to the neighborhood! So far so good! I am really looking forward to learning the lay of the land and exploring. I am glad I chose this area for my new home.

3 foot thick cement walls = not hindered by living so close to neighbors

I like to live here but there are a lot of noisy from the neighboors and parking lot always crowded. The staff is very good and always helps with everything.



I love the gym and the pool. I enjoy the BBQ set up as well. I like that the cement walls keep it quiet for the most part. I love that there is a Starbucks right underneath and a park near by where I can take my dog. Staff is also pretty helpful when...



Love everything about it. Office staff and maintenance are always friendly and helpful. It gets loud sometimes at night and early morning though.



So far so good. I am excited to move into your community. The Staff has been friendly so far and I'm looking forward to enjoying the beautiful amenities!

Very close to Santa Monica College and Ralph's, so I save a lot of time. It is also close to the Third Street and the beach. I can easily go there and hang out. I really like the pool and gym as well.

Pro: Great location. Great office management. Cons: Constant construction in the building. Hallways and garbage areas are more often than not filled with some trash or spill. Neutral: Expensive but for its location, not bad.



Great amenities, especially parking! The only downside is they make you pay a one-off 15 dollars to get your mail and a late fee every time you don't pick it up within 2 days, which is a very short time for people who lead busy lives or travel.



Big down side is that they make you pay to sign up for a package concierge service, and most of the delivery people don't know about it. So you pay $15 and then have most of your packages delivered to your door anyway (and stolen). They also charge y...



AO is great. The only thing I wish was different was that the dog park was cleaned up more and people were held responsible when they do not clean up after their pets.

So, I ended up wanting to write a review for a few different reasons. One, because i genuinely think that the reviews of this complex is disproportionately bad. Meaning, the bad reviews have NO actual facts considered. It's only based from a very nar...

This has been the worst managed building I have ever lived in. The building has been sold since we moved in, and the new owners idea of building management is a team of "stipperella's" with 6 inch platform heels that have no clue how to manage a prop...

My experience was very bad. Attention in the office is very bad. The manager is always locked in his office with a friend drinking wine and does not serve anyone. Robbery in the parking lot. Much noise and dirt for the construction of the subway line...
