I have lived here for 6 months, and I absolutely love where I live. I am on the 3rd floor, and my windows face the back greenbelt. I have never heard my neighbors, it is a very well insulated apartment. Parking has never been a problem, we have our own garage however we always can find a parking for the 2nd car. I am even in a dog building, and i still don't hear any dogs barking! My neighbors are respectful and quiet, and I have never had ANY issues with anything at our community. My apartments is beutiful! Crown molding, hardwood floors, stainless apliances. Everything i can ask for. My patio is huge, plenty of storage! The staff is always ready and able to help with anything. I truly truly love my place, i would not live anywhere else! I'd have to say the only only i guess you can say ""bad thing"" would be it is fairly expensive for a 1 bedroom, let alone a 2, however i can't really complain even about that because you get what you pay for right? You want to have a nice quiet and safe apartment, then your gonna have to pay for it! I don't mind paying a little more to live in Irvine, I?d much rather do that then live at unsafe, loud and rowdy cheap apartment in Orange or Anaheim. Reading other apartment reviews is really scary, before i moved to orchard hills i didn't even want to go look at some of the apartments i read about online. Seriously, you have to check out Orchard, you will fall in love with it!!!!! I am def. going to be renewling my lease!
