Hey,

I'm now locked into San Jose. I'll be moving there right around new years. Now, as part of my planning I'm looking for a good place to rent. I'll be working near the pruneyard plaza, so I'm looking for a place that's within public transport range of the pruneyard.

Pretty much, I'm a new grad that's trying to find a one bedroom or a studio for a decent price. I'll be willing to pay a little bit more (well, not really, these apartment prices seem outrageous) to live in a new/clean/modern apartment complex.

Any recommendations?

Pretty much I have to strike gold fairly soon here, because I really won't have the time to get onto a short term crappy rental, then fish around for a better apartment.

In brief:

- What are some good apartment complexes (public transportation) near the Pruneyard Plaza?
- What are some places that I should absolutely NOT consider?
- studio/1bdr -- how much is too much?

Pruneyard Apartments Ratings, Reviews, Map, Rents, and other Campbell apartments for rent from ApartmentRatings.com - no personal experience and no financial stake, YMMV!

As far as public transit goes - that I can tell you a lot about. There are two VTA buses that serve the Pruneyard, the 26 and the 62. The 26 will take you to the Westgate shopping center in Saratoga and to Sunnyvale, while the 62 goes all the way on Bascom before cutting through downtown San Jose on the way east. You can also walk out to the light-rail station and use it to connect to Caltrain at San Jose Diridon.

Apartmentratings.com is pretty accurate. I have reviewed my apartment in Campbell on there. Heritage Village is in a great location (right by downtown Campbell) and seems nice but you can find a less expensive place. I have heard good things about Sedona Lane apartments. The Pruneyard apartments are crappy. Coffeetree are just okay. I checked them out once but you can do better. Also, check out The Franciscan. They are pretty decent apartments. I don't know about the other communities.

New list..

What do you think of these places?

One Pearl Place
Heritage Village
Coffeetree Apartments
Sedona Lane Apartments
Sycamore Park Apartments

1776 Apartments
Palm Valley Apartments (formerly Santa Palmia)
Bella Villagio
Amberwood Apartments

One Pearl Place looks really nice. I wish it were cheaper. Also, Bella Villagio and Palm Valley look nice. When I say look, I mean the physical design of the complex.

What have your impressions been?
