Have now been here a full year and wish I had made the move years ago! Windward Village Apartments, with its close proximity to the beach, allow one to experience the unique Venice Beach scene including the shops, amusement, vendors, people-watching, restaurants,etc... How great is it to be a stone's throw from the beach and live in a nice, clean building? The excellent up-keep is completely attributed to the friendly staff (with an open-door office policy) including Karen (Manager), Roy (Head of Maintenance and much more), and the rest of the crew. A building in such a great area does not alone make a tennant's stay complete. The mamagement staff can make or break the desire to remain at a complex. Their response to any problems that arise are dealt with very quickly and efficiently. They are also different in that one can approach them (Karen, Roy,..) easily, simply to say hello and get a friendly smile despite the large amount of work they all have to do. Again, the great beach location coupled with the excellent staff would have me suggest to a friend/family member to reside at Windward Village Apartments!
