We lived in Vista Del Lago for 2 1/2 years. The apartments are nicely laid out and the neighborhood is peaceful. The office responds to maintenance concerns quickly. Parking is not a huge problem like most complexes. This is also the only apartment community in Mission Viejo that is allowed Lake pass access, although it costs about $40 a month (way more than if you own a house).\r
Check out the apartments at the back of the complex. They have a great view of the mountains and don't get a lot of traffic.
