I lived at Oracle Village for nearly 4 years and lived in 2 different apartments. What sold me initially was the 1 bedroom 'loft' style apartments. They are truly unique and the spiral staircase is really quite a bonus from other 'standard' apartment layouts.
It's an older property, and although maintained, is showing it's age. It's a pretty property, and you really can't beat what you get for the price. I always appreciated the wider parking spaces because I had a vehicle and a motorcycle to park and there was more than enough room to fit both.
Management and maintenance staff were always responsive. If you asked politely, you'd be treated politely. I never felt like they didn't care when I had concerns.
Now the bad things - BY FAR the reason that we found ourselves most unhappy was the noise from adjacent apartments. It's not an exaggeration to say that the walls are paper thin - we could hear the conversations in our neighbors apartments all the time. So there was no true feeling of privacy. No peace and quiet and very often you could hardly sleep without having to bang on the walls to quiet things down. Again, that's no exaggeration and it made us very unhappy. This was a significant problem in the 2 bedroom apartments. Most 1 bedrooms only had 1 person living in them and were mostly quiet.
Most of the 2 bedroom apartments have 1 big window in the living room that (sadly) looks directly into adjacent apartment buildings (separated only by a sidewalk). We could never have the curtains open because the neighbors would look right into our apartment! And we never wanted to leave the window open when we we're home for fear of a break-in due to window access from the sidewalk - (though admittedly, break-ins and theft were NEVER a problem) Ultimately, the 2 bedroom apartments feel dark and cave-like - and the floor plans aren't great. In the 2 bed 2 bath layout, both bathrooms are upstairs which we didn't think much of until we lived there.
Rusty hand-rails, roof tiles sliding off, patios in rough shape - all are signs of an older property, and these things certainly detract from feeling like things are 'nice' when you come home. Over all though, I/we really had a decent experience there and I really would have to say that if I had to do it all over again that I would feel comfortable living at Oracle Village.
