Two Thumbs Up |Recommended: YesThe office staff, especially Hannah, is a dream to work with. As a female living alone, finding an apartment that feels safe and secure can be a challenge at times. At Ondine, my fellow tenants are great, the parking area is well lit, and if there ever was a problem I have full confidence that the office staff would help. Great place to have a pup but no dog run or wash area like some places . Some apartments have views of the water. Love how close it is to Juanita Village with stuff to do or places to eat without it being too loud. The carpet is a little outdated but it's prefectly fine. Really like that there are built in space heaters not sure what they're actually called, you turn a dial and they kick on and off like a space heater would . Going to miss my kitchen and bathroom when I move one day.
Excellent Managers Excellent Place|Recommended: YesMy landlord, Andrew, is an amazing guy. He's always there to answer questions, exceedingly polite and professional, and just a good guy. I've never had any issues with him. One of the best people to serve in that position - please promote or give him a raise or something.
Hi there Allen, We value hearing your feedback and thank you for your kind words regarding Andrew at Ondine at Juanita Bay - we think he is pretty super as well and I will make sure he hears about it! Thank you for posting online and choosing to make your home here with us at a Weidner community. Kind regards, Kristie - Weidner Customer Service
Very nice for the area.|Recommended: YesOndine is a very nice and relatively new apartment complex in a great area of Kirkland. I was surprised by just how quiet it was, I couldn't hear my neighbors at all While a little bit expensive, at least I always felt I was getting my money's worth out of it. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The apartments themselves are pretty modern and mostly without any signs of aging, but what would you expect for built in 2013 My only complaint would be the upper guest parking lot, since there is very little availability to begin with compounded by many of the spaces being unavailable due to a maintenance issue that existed for my entire 1-year contract. While not a problem for just daily living, it made it very difficult to have guests visit. However, as of the time of writing this, they appear to be fixing the maintenance issue, which should help the unavailability of guest parking, at least a little bit. Overall I enjoyed my time at Ondine and would recommend it to anybody moving into the Kirkland area. Don't be put off too much by the price, it really is the best deal you'll find.

Great parking space, reasonable, but PAPER THIN WALL and Untrained Staff |Recommended: YesPros 1 great gated parking space 2 reasonable 3 appearance nicely finished, leveled building and silver appliances, brushed nickel bathroom faucets, etc. 4 maintenance readily available and great personable guy helping all the time Cons 1 NOISY walls are paper thin - could hear upstairs footsteps all the time and a resident coughing, etc. 2 Maintenance unable to fix the kitchen stove fan - does not suck out the smokes from usual cooking 3 Staff always missed to bring up the delivered package to my room even when delivered 6 hours before close 4 Construction front gate is NOT available for entry. residents have to use backdoor what a mess Apartment should be built for residents NOT the ones sitting on chairs all day long from 10am to 5pm. Overall, yes I still recommend it for the price and amenity. but I am too sensitive to those cons and I won't be coming back to any Weidner apartments in the future.
Nice community, mostly quite, convenient, and very friendly staff.|Recommended: YesI like the convenience to parks, shops, restaurants and banks, as well as the closeness to Bellevue and Seattle. The apartments layout and tall ceilings make the rooms feel very spacious. Love the balcony, the natural light that comes in, and the generous kitchen cabinets. I pay for parking so I don't have issues with it, and when friends come to visit, they are able to find a space.
Dear Edlisa, thanks for the great review; we will share it with the on site team and their managers as well!
I like the free parking but never can find any. |Recommended: YesI love the location.

I hate that i cant use my visa for payments|Recommended: Yesgood
Hi Michelle, this is Wendee from Customer Service. Thank you for your feedback. We would love to be able to offer Visa as a payment option, however the fees directly from Visa that the resident would have to pay are extremely high and that is why we do not offer that form of payment.
A small intimate apartment community|Recommended: YesIt's just as good as living in your own home. Awesome spacious kitchens and bathrooms and a well decorated shared space for it's tenants.
I am very happy in ONDINE is a peaceful, clean and elegant place to live|Recommended: YesI love ONDINE because it is very clean, modern, elegant, peaceful, and very well located. I love nature and ONDINE is located near to Juanita bay. We also are close to Kirkland and if you use the public transportation there are key buses that you can use to go directly to Seattle, Bellevue, Factoria, Redomond, etc. The manager and staff are gentile, friendly and responsible. When you make a call to report something to need to repair ONDINE staff responds immediately and in most of the cases the same day they resolve the unit problem.
