Good place to livesubmitted by Stephen F. - |Recommended: YesThe staff is fantastic, awesome pool and BBQ area
Pricey but Prettysubmitted by Sophie C. - |Recommended: YesThe grounds are beautiful and I love having my own private balcony in the back. However, The cost is very high for the area, as with the almost 12 increase in rent this year, I am paying the same price as friends in San Francisco. The walls are a little thin-you can hear your neighbors talking and the cold or hot air seems to come right through. The screens are also warped and allow bugs to enter forcing the choice between letting in cool air at night or keeping the spiders out. I can also see light entering around my front door as it does not seal. The bathroom is large but does not have any sort of fan so mold grows quickly. The contract does not allow for subletting which is unfortunate, as that would help offset the high cost. I do enjoy the mostly quiet atmosphere and the chatting with the friendly staff. I would have chosen a cheaper apartment complex had there been any availability, but for the most part enjoy living in Portage Bay.

Quiet, convenient, and safesubmitted by Madeline M. - |Recommended: YesIt's a pretty quiet place and my roommate and I have enjoyed our time living here. The walls are a little too thin to the point you can hear everyone and everything but other than that its a good first apartment.

Comfortable, Friendly Apartment Complex Close to UC Davissubmitted by Samantha M. - |Recommended: YesPortage Bay is a great place to live Staff is very friendly and quick to respond to maintenance requests. Apartments are great size for what you pay. The pool and hot tub are great amenities. They have new parcel boxes that keep your packages safe when delivered. You can hear little bits from your neighbors, but not enough to disturb you in any way. The grounds are well kept.
Review Portage Bay submitted by Hok L. - |Recommended: YesPortage Bay apartment is great overall. However, there was a few electric outage which cause the entire area to be extremely too dark. The apartment can do things such as using solar power lights, so that if it blacks out in the neighborhood. The apartment will still be light up for residents, and also energy saving.
This is the best place we lived in, love it submitted by Maria S. - |Recommended: YesIt is very quiet. The apartment is very homey and cozy. We are very comfortable. Everything works. We had some minor issues and they were fixed right away. The management office is very respectful and friendly. Our apartment has new functioning appliances. We have a very spacious nice porch with gates. The grounds between the apartments are beautiful. The parking is always plentiful. The garbage bins are always emptied. There are two laundry facilities on site, and there is always space to do laundry. We are members of the Country Club, and use the gym there and do some of our walks by the lake. Plus, we have plenty of parks and walking paths that we use on thedaily basis for exercise. There is a local pizza place and some other restaurants, and a supermarket which sells organic and healthy options. Rent is reasonable and we are very happy here.
