Hi all,

I was wondering if any of you have ever lived in Highridge Apartments in Rancho Palos Verdes. We visited there today and it looks really nice. We have a 4 year old daughter and an older dog.

If you have lived there or heard buzz about it, let me know what you think. Also, if you know of any other apartments in the area that are pet friendly that you really like, let me know.

I really like this forum. It has been a huge help so far. So a big thank you in advance!

- Kid.

Default Highridge, Vista Catalina, Rancho Palos Verdes condos

We have a dog and looked at the Highridge apartments when moving here too. They seemed fine, though the emphasis seemed to be on the outside, versus the inside. Outside, the complex looked really nice; inside, it was just your typical boxy, charmless, but perfectly adequate setup. We also looked at a place on Hawthorne called Vista Catalina, which used to be called The Madison. Though the outside didn't seem quite as nice, the inside was much better--all renovated, well designed, etc. Ultimately, though, we ended up renting a condo. The condo wasn't as nice inside as the Vista Catalina units, but we liked that there were a lot fewer people in the complex. I'd recommend checking out condo rentals, but if that doesn't work out, either Vista Catalina or Highridge would be perfectly fine for a year or so--maybe longer, depending on how you feel about living in complexes with lots of other people.

I saw a couple of apartment complexes on the peninsula recently, and I wasn't all that impressed. I didn't get to go inside any of the units, but generally it seemed that things were crammed together and the apartments and grounds were nowhere near as high quality as the other types of properties in the area. If you could rent a condo instead, I would recommend it. That tends to give you a better chance of avoiding overcrowding and bothersome neighbors, although there is no guarantee.
