The place is nice overall I'd say, rather visually attractive, but it *is* apartment living. I moved in Mid March.ShawnAnthony was very helpful with the move in process, and the front office staff has been pleasant in general. Pet rent was $40, which I think is a ridiculous practice - If my cat ruins things, that's what a pet deposit

Summer House is apartment living, lots of families, kids, teenagers, and everything in between. So you have to accept the situation when you sign the lease or why bother!!The maintenance crew keep the place looking good every morning, the poolside, the fitness center, restrooms, and business center. They responded immediately to all
Shane Anthony is amazing.. I'm living in the summer house apartment for more than a year and this guy helped me a lot and gave me everything I asked.The complex on a great location, the pool & gym at amazing , and the most Important reasonably priced (compere to the the high prices in the Bay Area) Highly recommend !!
The security guards now are better then they used to be about 2-3 months ago. They got a new company now and the guards seem quite kool. The best guard I think is Ali that comes in at 6pm and stays here till quite late. I havent seen him around for a couple day's now though, I hope they bring him back because he was really friendly a
Of all the things I love about living in Alameda, coming home to a nice place has been at the top of my list. I've been living at Summerhouse for going on 4 yrs now, and have always come home to a safe and beautiful place. Besides the obvious (location and proximity to shopping and freeways), I really like that the staff on location
I rented an apartment for $ 1,800. All excellent but in winter all flooded entrance and fountain does not stop making noise at night.
I have lived at Summer House for 3 years. I have so many complaints about the management of the apartments... The apartments are dirty, the security is poor, and the rates are high. However, there is one person in the office who has been extremely helpful through all of our troubles. Shawnanthony treats us like real people when most
Love the scenery ,best apartment ever and helpful staff. The are is amazing super clean ,family every where, respectful neighbors with pets allowed and children play area and awesome swiming pool also tight security . LOooove it
SHAWNANTHONY IS THE TRUTH!!!! So is Tamara, Jamie, and the rest of the staff at Summer House!!!! Also, Sunday brunch which is prepared by Shawnanthony is delicious and a lovely way to start a Sunday. It's a nice way to meet other residents in a fun environment. I look forward to the next one!!I just moved in here 2 weeks ago and was
This is a huge complex. Statistically speaking, some things are going to go wrong for a few people in such a large complex, but I've experienced nothing but the best. Great neighbors, atmosphere, and office personnel. Sunday brunch is ridiculously delicious and a great way for the neighbors to socialize - what a brilliant idea! I
New management. You can ignore MOST of the reviews from before 2014. Look, the complex has around 700 apartments. With that many people, there are bound to be a few issues (fire alarms, no parking, overflowing trash bins), but so far I haven't seen or heard anything that would make me say, "I hate this place & I HAVE to move." Mo
I've lived at Summerhouse for half a year and it's fine. People in the office are nice, sorry that Steven left but Tamara is great! I didn't know about the brunches though, will have to check that out! When I've had a maintnance request it gets taken care of immediately. Common areas are clean. I don't pay my rent online though,
Despite all the reviews, I decided to take a look at Summer House after unsuccessful attempts in finding affordable rentals in surrounding neighborhoods. I had lived in Alameda before AND took a look at Summer House 3 years prior. Now, I'm a resident here. I have to say that the new management has changed this place for the better. N
Personally I have never experienced any of the negative things mentioned in some of the other reviews. I find that the grounds are always impeccably clean and well maintained and that there truly is a sense of community.Summer House has brunch every Sunday that is now better than ever since Sean came on board. Very friendly and respe
Not sure what the others are complaining about but my family and I love living at Summer House. The grounds are beautiful and everyone is very friendly. There is a real community atmosphere and I always feel safe, even when walking my dog at 2am. The rent prices also seem very reasonable.I can afford to live somewhere more expensive
Living here at Summerhouse is like living in my own personal oasis!! I have a beautiful apartment overlooking the gorgeous courtyard and pool and couldn't be happier. Stephen K was the agent that helped me get our apartment from the day I 1st called in May of 2013 even though we weren't moving until November. Stephen was just wonderf
Its great for the money (some of the least expensive housing in the east bay).
I just signed my lease again, I was dreading the process. The person I dealt with was Stephen Keating. I was so glad to go through this process with Stephen. He is friendly, caring, and very thoughtful. The other folk in the office always seem to be too busy to help, so working with Stephen was great. I don't disagree with the other
Moved to the Summer House apts in August. Every time I have had to get anything done for the apartment it has been done in a timely manner. I feel very safe coming home at any time of night or day. Stephen in particular has been just amazing. He has always offered to help and do whatever I have needed to get things done. The rest of
As I review the very negative reviews from long ago, it seems to me that the writers could be young and inexperienced . It's too bad these reviews stay so long on the site. Things are not as bad as some would like you to believe.Particularly nice are the staff. I've had nothing but positive interactions with all of them, especially T
Summerhouse has been a wonderful place to live. when we moved here in September, the staff was helpful and always had time to talk with us, particularly Tamara. We had some repairs and maintenance issues and they were attended to immediately. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful.
I'll put it bluntly, Summer House is neither as good as their advertising leads you to believe, nor is it nearly as bad as most of these reviews. I moved here with my wife and 1 year old daughter in June of 2012. Our experience here has been very positive over all. We obviously don't mind all the kids running around because it has he
So, I'm writing an update from the last review I made. Pros: Summer House is still a beautiful place, has a internet room where you can print & fax. They have business room & I'm glad that the people working there are really nice now. Its true that they are just working there & they have to follow the rules, so I'm not gonna blame th
I have lived in Summer House Apt. for more than two yrs now. It is a great place to live and raise a family. The management is great they response to any repair quickly. Over all it a very quiet place to live.Tamba S. Bandabaila
I lived at Summer House Apartments for 3 years with my now 10 year old son. We had a very clean, comfortable, sunny 2 bedroom apartment. We were on the 2nd floor next to the elevator and the laundry room. We had many good experiences and those experiences improved over time. Be sure to rent an apartment that suits your needs. Look at
We have lived here at Summer House for over a year now and we have loved living here so much we renewed our lease again! some problems have accured during our stay here but what do you expect when you have so many people living in a big building all at once! The premises are kept clean and up to date. The grass and flowers are always
Alameda is a great place to live and living in Summer House makes it even better. The complex stays clean, maintained, and freshly painted. The pool is enormous and up kept, with BBQ pits right outside the fence. The gym is small, but it gets the job done (Summer House, if you want to add more hex bells, I won't complain). An office
i moved in about 3 months ago and so far i only have minor complaints. i am on the 2nd floor and my building is fairly quiet--so far. no noisy neighbors above me and i'm in the middle of the building so the outside noise is minimal. i love having an outdoor space, so the balcony is great. my minor complaints are here of late some
I have lived here a little over a year. I have two small children and it's great that my 3 year old can ride her bike where she lives without worrying about getting hit by a car. Staff are great and friendly and there are some new faces as well. Many changes have been made including adding security that patrols 24/7. Vandalism is has
