Welcome to Sablewood Gardens
I would not recommended this apartment complex to anyone. The apartments look nice on the inside but are built very cheap, the floors in the living room were slanted and would creak all over the apartment when you walked around.
There was a ton of maintenance problems that popped up (leaky faucets, towel rack falling off wall, etc) even though we were the first residents residing there, and it took maintenance forever to come out and fix them. And on top of that, I would schedule specific appointments and they would show up anytime they pleased, hours different than when they said they'd be there.
The gate had a ton of problems. At first we had a gate code which was fine, but then they took away the gate code and gave all of the residents clickers which didn't even work half of the time, causing a huge buildup of cars outside the gate. It also meant whenever you had a guest, you had to go open the gate for them. The gates also continuously got stuck halfway closed, blocking cars from entering or exiting.
The playground area for kids was closed off and continued to be closed off for months without explanation.
There was multiple incidents of vandalism and trash thrown everywhere in the pool area.
There was an incident where somebody egged and shot paintballs in an area of the apartment complex, getting all over the sidewalk, street, on multiple cars, and shot onto the patios of some of the downstairs apartments.
The managers in the office almost never answer the phone and are not very helpful at all.
Halfway through my lease, I wanted to add an additional resident, filled out all of the paperwork to do so, they paid $30 for a credit/background check and we NEVER heard back about adding them on to the lease. And we know that she should have been approved as we already had a cosigner.
The list goes on and on, but the bottom line is, DON'T RENT HERE!
NEW North West Gated Community.
Hands down, there is not a more professional team as these kind people, throughout Bakersfield California. If you desire efficiency for management, look no further they are it.
They don't take care of issues in a timely manner. Grounds are not kept up dead plants everywhere, by entrance and looks horrible.
Built very cheap, brand new and cabinet work very bad, walk thru told agent about things that are wrong still nothing done, grounds not kept up, playground been closed for over 45 days, there are lots of kids in this complex... feel sorry for anyone that lives on ground floor, can here everything above... not good, you pay top rent a gated community, that is run not professional .. horrible!!!
