So I have lived here for about 1 year, and let me say if bugs bother you and especially silver-fish I would not live here. I am a neat freak, its not like I left food out and left nasty dished in the sink, I am a very clean person.

I would have to say everyday I would come back from class and I would find minimum 1 silver fish crawling on my wall daily. There came a point to where I had to sleep with my bed at least one foot away from the wall so silver fish and other bugs seen would not crawl into my bed while I was sleeping.

Management was descent, I asked them to spray for the bug problem; they did, but I have come to believe that this place is infested with these bugs, I sprayed, they sprayed, nothing happened. Still daily silver fish were found here.

I would have to say do not live here, I hate bad mouthing places/people, and I am doing this in the most polite way as possible but, I would hate for another person to move in here and go through what I went through. I would not wish that upon anyone.

Yeah, I don't like here either. Here's the reasons:
1: the swimming pool- They said that they completed the swimming pool on their website, but if you acctually go there, the only water in the swimming pool is rainwater.
2: The exercise room- they have 2 out of 7 broken machines the excersise room.
3:Silverfish-(see comment above)

You could have made the silverfish your pets and would have had someone to share your bed with.

It was horrible living here. I suggest all new tenants stay away because you will have your car vandalized, you'll have to deal with the loud noise and constant partying. The overall structure of the apartments is laughable because it's like living in a cardboard box. It's drafty, more noise gets in, it attracts bugs of all sorts and your energy bill is then going to cost you more. Such a rip off place and the crime is so bad! there were many times that I was awoken in the middle of the night because three to four cop cars were breaking up a fight and party-goers....not the ideal place anyone wants to be..... I'm just glad I don't live there anymore.

Sounds like my kind of place Chola, are there any units available to move into? I love to party outside with my homies and sip on 40 ounce cervezas.

This place falsely advertises everything.
1. THERE IS NO POOL!
2. THE FITNESS CENTER IS A COMPLETE JOKE! There's nothing in it but rusted equipment.
3. MAINTENANCE AND THAT FAT LARD ASS FRED DOES NOT DO A DAMN THING! I had a leak in my bathroom from the second floor and no action was taken which costed my new Apple laptop, my 50' plat panel and a bose stero system.

After moving out which has been almost a month now I STILL haven't gotten my rent deposit back after I scrubbed the floors and cleaned everything nicely.
They kept my deposit over "water stains" that they failed to come and clean up.

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND ENERGY HERE....ITS A SCAM!

The fat manager is a two faced scam artist who wants to bleed every last penny out of you, the only people willing to live there are the indians cause they live 8 to one apartment. As long as that fat short white dude is the manager don't live here!

Hi,
I lived here for one year, All i can say is it sucks. If you have any problem in your apartment even if you complain about that no one responds to you. They overcharge people with out a pool and proper Gym.
I can strongly say that this not a right place to live.

Wow! I hope that everyone reads this comment. So I went to this complex a couple of days before school started. An idiot named Fred "the manager" told me there was nothing available until September so I left in dissapointment because school was so close. Within the 5 min that I leave, he calls me again and says that there is an availability now. I was so excited and drove back to the complex. Fred "the manager" stated that I had to put down my application deposite and he would email me the Lease contract. Paying was my mistake! That following weekend he called and told me that he ACCIDENTLY didn't write down what floorplan I wanted and now has to rent me a 2 bedroom for $100 more. I refused and he informed his "managers" could not refund me the fee because it was a process for them to process my name. How the hell can it be a process when I don't even live there? Justice needs to be served on this property and I will make sure of it, even if it's the last thing I do. Two words for this place: f*ckn IDIOTS. PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU ARE TRICKED.

the last comment shows how terrible Fred, the manager who smokes weed is, and while this is true, i have lived here for 2 years and it's a lot worse than just the stoned forgetful manager.

1. you will never get your deposit back.
also, mine and a friends air conditioning was out for 3 months. in the summer. as a 'sorry' from the alpin, we both were offered 3 months free rent. friend went to move out, and fred tried suing him for the 3 months rent back. i never took my 'free' 3mo.

2. got a problem, need it fixed? too bad! maintenance here is completely worthless. oh, unless you want to be woken up at 9:30am every single god damned day by pointless yard work. i know it's my favorite wake up call when i'm hungover. my garbage disposal has never worked, tried to get it fixed 8x, never once worked. they just shut it off.

3. rent is sky high for the shit that is the alpin. claims to have a work out center - but not a single machine works. don't believe me? that door is never locked, go in and test it out for yourself! once, i went to work out and a homeless man ran out, whom was just masturbating in there. lovely place.
its pool also sucks. looks cool at first, but it's tiny, no view, and no lawn chairs nor grills. and again, maintenance is at an all time low here. so not worth your money unless you really want to live so close to campus and have an 800$ vendetta against the maverick creek apts.

i'm sure there's more, but it's 10:30 and i've been up for an hour, but the lawn work FINALLY ended.

OH! and if you are dumb enough to put in a work order, a white dickhead of a maintenance man will show up at your door no later than 10am, knock once, if you don't immediately answer, he will try to open your door with his key. I deadbolt my shit around here; if you do so, he sticks his disgusting white trash face in and yells "MANAGEEEERRRRRR" until you get up and open the fucking door. I personally kicked the door on his face, locked it, and he is legally no longer allowed to enter my apt. sometimes makes for awkward mornings.

hope you learned not to live here.
learn from my mistakes.
for the love of god, go somewhere else

These are absolutely the worst apartments! The management is absolute shit. The manager literally is high all the time. The pool is never open. The workout room shouldn't even be considered a workout room with how little machines work. There's constantly people moving out due to bedbugs. And on some nights you even here screaming as if people were dying. Overall unsafe, unsanitary, and fucking disgusting. If you can help it, never live here!

if it really is that bad you should consider making a complaint to the bbb, that will help many people from having future problems with this apartment complex, if enough people complain im sure that some action will be taken to avoid future problems. it is their responsibility to provide a sanitary living environment to its tenants

My car was stolen three weeks ago from La Cantera. It was recovered at the Alpin today....2012 Black Ford Expedition. I am assuming it was parked at the apartments for three weeks. At the time it was stolen there was a bright yellow trailer attached to the car. The trailer is still missing and I am assuming it is around the same area somewhere. I am offering a large reward for any information as to the whereabouts of my trailer.

Quite possibly the most disgusting and inadequate apartment complex that I have ever seen or had the displeasure of living in.

BED BUGS BED BUGS BED BUGS BED BUGS BED BUGS!!!

Unless you enjoy sharing your bed with bed bugs, silverfish, scorpions, millipedes, beetles, ants, and spiders... DO NOT RENT HERE.

They advertise a "work out center" which is completely non-existent and used as a storage room for appliances that have broken down in apartments. The pool is small and only open for a couple of months in the summer until they close it "due to colder weather" when in fact it was 90 fucking degrees. The old man that does maintenance at this place is probably one of the most unpleasant, creepy, and bitter person I have ever been unfortunate enough to encounter. If you just so happen to live here, NEVER put a work order in unless you want to have this old creep trespass in to your apartment. Honestly, the fact that he does this is enough to lead me to suspect that he or the creepy manager Frederick Centeno enter our apartments whenever they like to go through our belongings and smell girls' underwear... wouldn't put it past them at all.

The apartments themselves are trashy, dirty, and deserve to be torn down.

This complex is a scam. The people running it are crooks. Nothing that they advertise is actual.

Run. While you still can. Or risk acquiring some new bed bug buddies.

DO NOT RENT HERE. EVER.

REPORT THEM TO THE BBB AND HAVE THIS PLACE SHUT DOWN AND DESTROYED.
