I am leaving Breakwater with mixed emotions. I am pleased that I have choices and I made a choice that is best for me at this time. I am saddened that I am leaving Breakwater a place I truly called HOME! I have complimented the office staff, the custodial staff, and my neighbors to many, how wonderful living in Breakwater has been.

The overall experience here has been a constant delight. I have never seen a property managed like a 5 star hotel. I see the most thorough organization I have ever seen! The outdoors is spotless. Every day the chairs are set up, the grills are thoroughly cleaned, the entire premises cleaned, no leaves anywhere, no trash anywhere. I am amazed. The staff super friendly and present. The inside appliances are new, the drawers and cabinet fixtures clean and new, everything opens and closes smoothly, the washer/dryer top quality! I cannot say enough. I will keep this place for as long as possible, even after my home is finished. This is the perfect beach pad! Cannot be any happier! Thank you to all!!!! Highest Regards

I absolutely love living at Breakwater Apartments! My husband and I found it while biking on Balona Creek. James Crisp was our first point of contact and made us feel welcome and excited to learn about the apt amentities, community and rewards programs (rent with equity). I would love to know who the architects are because they did a great job!! The exterior colors are cheerful, interiors are layed out well with plenty of storage and the amenities like fire pits, long BBQ tables and cacoon-like outdoor chairs make living here like a resort. I hope to make this our home for the next couple of years as we start a family.
