When I first looked at Arboretum apartments, I honestly did not think that I would be able to afford living there because of how nice they are. I have lived in several different apartments, so I thought I knew what the average prices of each were. I am so glad I was wrong about these. Of course, I was comparing Los Angeles apartments with them, and the cost of living is higher there. I am still a bit surprised that I am living in such a nice apartment for less than what I was paying for a much smaller apartment back in California.
I definitely wanted a two bedroom apartment even though my daughter would not be with me too often. Her school and friends are both in California, but I knew that I would see her on some weekends as well as holidays, and I was hoping she would want to spend a lot of her summertime here with me too. Because of that, I wanted her to have her own bedroom whenever she came to visit. I was able to get a really nice two bedroom unit, and it is even on two different floors.
The upstairs has two bedrooms and two baths, and that is it. It overlooks the living room and dining room down below, which is nice too. On the first floor is the living room, dining room, kitchen, another bathroom, and a small patio too. It is perfect for me when I am here on my own, and it is equally perfect for us when she is here with me. I showed it to her before filling out an application, because I wanted to make sure she would like it. To see her eyes light up at the idea of her own bedroom and bathroom was all the proof that I needed to know that this was the best choice for us.
