My parents have lived here for over 12 years, it USED to be a great place to live. Now, the park is taking over more and more of the coaches and turning them into rentals. There are almost NO homes owed by people, it is like a great big apartment complex, with kids hanging on corners and loitering. Big diesel tow trucks skulking about all hours of the night for a chance to tow away a car not parked by "the rules". There is NO "GUEST PARKING" unless you get a parking pass...this is of coarse for the benefit of "the Park" (their wallet is more like).....unless you know someone that works here....then you can do what ever you want. A couple of years ago I stopped in front of my parents coach to bring over a TV for my father (who is disabled) and my brother and I parked just long enough to bring the TV in from my car (hatch open, and emergency lights on) no sooner set the TV down on the floor and walked out to move my car and a tow truck was there lining up and taking photos of my car....like he was watching for the chance to tow my car..the park "doesn't know anything about it" but when I call the tow people, "We are there at the park's request" My folks are over 70 years old and stress out to even have family come by to visit because of the parking! I would Never move here....again, it USED to be a nice place ... now, it is all about how much money they can make off all the bizarre rules that change every time you turn around....not to mention water AND power being turned off ALL THE TIME with just a day or two notice...again my parents are OLD and being without water and power with little to not notice.....not a way to live.
I worked for Los Alisos for very many years and the changes they have made are good ones. If you are renting..............there are always rules you have to follow. Some residents prefer not to follow them and then when they don't......they are asked to move out ! I can only say that they do try there........I liked my Job and it's a nice clean place to live!
IF you like random rules. UPDATE MAY 28 2009: This place has not improved for the tenents. It has only improved on the outside for most of the park. Drive thru & notice just the main sts have gussied up. AND I agree the park management writes the "wonderful place to live reviews" You may see five stars on this page, but this is NOT A 5 STAR PLACE to live. It is basically a place that adds rules whenever the owner or managment gets bored. Just to scare the tenants into staying indoors. The most recent ones this year are. 1) The Westminster PD will be driving around to ticket anyone going over the speed limit (10mph) not stopping at stop signs etc. 2) There is a tow company driving around also looking for vehicles not parked correctly or to the standard of managment (whatever you do do not back into a parking place!) 3) Every one needs a parking permit to park anywhere except their driveway. This was not a rule widely known unless you went to the office in January to sign a paper you are now aware of it along with other rules I still know nothing about. Guess I'll find out about them when I violate one & get EVICTED. Along with a rule that limits how many times you can complain about repairs. It is a secret number but they will EVICT if you go over it! Also as for repairs they take at least 2 months & then hope they do it correctly because you don't want to complain again. The Number One thing they keep & spend countless hours on, is a file on tenants. To bring out when they want to EVICT you. You will notice in the morning & evening there is always someone driving around slowly & writing things down that gets turned in to the office for your daily file report. HONESTLY! I still live here but I know my file is large & they are getting ready to use it. I pay the old rent & that makes them upset. Now lets not forget the rent increases every year. Usually $75.00 to $150.00. We will get one this October I am sure. If you move in now for say $1,500.00 plus the monthly fee for landscape $22.50, expect to be paying around $1,622.50 by November for a 2 bdrm . If I could afford to move, I along with many others would , but we are the older ones with cheaper rent ,they pick on & make life miserable for with their scare tactics.
LOVE THIS PLACE!. I have lived here for 8 years. I have seen great improvements to this park! It is cleaner and nicer than it used to be! the people are nice, management really nice. I think the people that dont like it here are grumpy.
OMG!!!!. So far I've been here for about 9months. I cant believe what all theses people are saying. Ive only had GREAT experiences here with the staff... The park is doing the best they can by cleaninng and making new houses, Which by the way they are beautiful!
Worst Place to live. DO NOT MOVE HERE! THIS PLACE COMPLETELY SUCKS! MANAGEMENT HARASS RESIDENTS, CHANGE RULES WHENEVER THEY WANT, TRAP AND KILL PETS, IF SOMETHING BREAKS THEY DO NOT FIX IT..EVER! THEY ALSO ALLOW REPEAT SEXUAL OFFENDERS TO LIVE HERE (CONVICTED OF REPEATEDLY MOLESTING CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 14). ANY POSITIVE REVIEWS WERE WRITTEN BY MANAGEMENT OR THE OWNER. How do I know all of this??? Because I have lived here for almost 17 years!
Don't Live Here!!! You'll Hate It!!!. Management sucks, leasing agents are idiots and maintenance are don't get things done!!! They let rude people live here who have no consideration for others, especially the tenants with kids and pets.
who ever wrote those good reviews are lairs or the owners. The rent a cops they hire harass the tenants constantly , we were just pulled over coming home at 1am from a movie by TWO $8 an hour rent a cops with their toy car and lights and sirens pulling into our own driveway. This is not uncommon. They also harass your guests as well. They have tow trucks towing your guests cars out of guest parking. People love to come and visit us here because hey they get to spend alot of money afterwards getting their cars out of impound when they go to leave. This place is a hell hole dump with plenty of opression to go along with it. stay away, and by the way they hate kids here too.
Run by the Gestapo.
I hope nobody is stupid enough to think that all those flowery reviews are for real. Not!!!!! The real deal is in the reviews with 1 star. Los Aliso is now owned and operated by the children of the original owners. You know how that goes, the founders care about what they created, but when they are gone thier children operate on greed. You can't have visitors because there is no where for them to park. Thier cars are towed away if they park in guest parking with out a permit. Park personel constantly snoop around our places to make sure we're not doing anything they don't want us to do. I'm an animal lover, and it breaks my heart to see them trapping resident's pets that are outside and then sending them to be destroyed. They just sent out a flyer to us all stating that if they see any unauthorized pets in anyone's windows that person would either be evicted or fined $500.00.
I can't say this loud enough, If you are thinking of renting or buying in this, DON'T!!!!
Happy to be here!. I have lived at this location for now 5 yrs with my husband and 3 kids this park is the perfect place to grow up. The children have alot of friends to play with and the neighborhood is very friendly. For holidays (easter, 4th of July) they have events at the complex for the children to participate in. The prices are pretty reasonable. All around I think this place is great and would definately let people in on this place =)
