Excellent living with a minor amount of acceptable sacrificessubmitted by Kyle R. - |Recommended: YesI would have nothing but good things to say about the staff, the apartment layout works well, minor dislikes such as locations of lighting fixtures. Downsides, you probably won't find a place to park on the property unless you pay for a covered spot, and you can hear quite a bit of the hallway. Everyone that lives here is nice though and I could get used to this.

So Far So Good submitted by Chanel W. - |Recommended: YesWe have lived here one month and so far it's been smooth sailing. The problems that have arisen have been promptly taken care of. We had a spider problem and an exterminator was there within three days The apartments are beautiful and the layouts are great The front desk staff is super responsive too which is a huge plus My only complaint is parking. Holy hell it's extremely hard to find parking in the evening Honestly, though, I shouldn't be complaining because it's the only free apartment parking in the Seattle area lol I'll take hard to find over 150 bucks any day. I also love the online payment portal. Thank you
Recommendedsubmitted by Michelle B. - |Recommended: YesWatercrest Apartments have been a great place to live so far. The staff seem to be friendly proactive email us often, landscaping trash get done on a regular basis, pool gym stay clean, helpful every time I go into the office . I have one dog it's been nothing but convenient to walk around with the grassy areas, poop bags around the complex, feels safe to walk around, and well-insulated walls for tolerable noise. I would say for things that need improving would be the parking cement is so worn down needs the rough potholes cement to be fixed as well as maybe more uncovered parking spaces. There is no where to park around the complex after a certain time. There's clearly many covered spaces that you have to pay for, but it doesn't make a difference for protecting your car. Other than that, my experience has been peaceful so far.

Nice place with good staff. submitted by Yuanning M. - |Recommended: NoI would say it is a good place with those who does not care about annoying from up stair.
Nice and spacious Layoutssubmitted by Peter K. - |Recommended: YesWatercrest Apartments is a nice apartment complex that feels very cozy. The staff and maintenance 24h are excellent and very friendly. Issues get handled professionally and in a timely manner. It's dog friendly, which was a great plus to me and people are very good at picking up after their dogs here, so the great looking landscaping stays neat. Personally, I really like the layouts of the apartments, they are bright and feel spacious. Another perk is the 24h fitness studio Parking can be a little hassle at around 5, but it's free for uncovered spaces, so no complaining there. So far I've always found a spot on the property. I have never heard any of my neighbors, thou we are on the top floor, so no idea if they can hear us. I do hear people in the hallways every once in a while, but overall it's rather quiet. The windows are supposed to be insulating, which seems to be the case, unfortunately they aren't very sound proof. But then again, it's not too noisy here. I would recommend this property and I'm looking forward to spending more time here
Good overallsubmitted by Laura R. - |Recommended: YesWe have only been here for three months, but overall it's been a good experience. Parking I do not pay for the covered parking, and depending on when you are looking it can sometimes be hard to find a spot. When I am coming and leaving for work 6pm and 8 am I never have issues finding empty spaces. However, if you go out and come back after midnight it can be hard sometimes. However this is expected for me, as I moved from an area with street only parking where parking was always an issue. To me, since I am paying nothing, parking is totally fine. Staff The staff is very friendly and helpful overall. I always go in to the office in person because although they are always there and helpful when you go in, they very rarely answer the phone for some reason Not a big deal though as the office is right there. Appearance Apartments Again, for the price I feel like you get an an ample amount of space. The carpeting we got is nice and was new. There is plenty of closet space. The quality of everything is basic but totally livable. Occasionally we notice a small damp spot on a wall or ceiling, d t humidity and not circulating the air as often as we should. My only complaint would be that the hallways stairwells are not the nicest. The carpeting is usually dirty from people going in and out and people spill their trash sometimes when putting it in the garbage chute. However, the cleaning people for the apartment clean it very regularly and I appreciate that. We have lucked out not having very noisy neighbors thus far, however it is an apartment and you can hear others.
response from property -Hi Laura, this is Jen from Customer Service. So glad to hear you love your community, we think they're pretty terrific too! I'll be sure they get a copy of your review and your kind words for them. Thanks! Jen
Clean and green placesubmitted by Daniel W. - |Recommended: YesI like the gardens, the many places to walk with my dog, and the trail that is 2 blocks behind the building is the best, whether it's for walking, running, bicycling, or just to see otters and raccoons. So far, I'd totally recommend this community.
