These apartments were built on the former site of a plant nursery: ["Davis Nursery"], a retail nursery owned by the Basinger family for more than 40 years. There is a unique gold-tipped variety of Deodar cedar in front (visible in the photo above) which was planted by nursery owner Tom Basinger. The apartments are located directly across the street from the freight train tracks. The freight train comes by a few times each day (much less frequently than Amtrak), typically only during daylight hours. The complex is close to bus lines, bike routes, markets, restaurants, and shopping centers. It's about 10 blocks from UCD ["campus"].</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 9: </td> <td> Line 14: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- The apartments have 3 bathrooms and either 3 or 4 bedrooms depending on the unit.

Want one of the 3 garage spots? $50 a month. Want to rent a washer/dryer? $50. Dog? You guessed it - $50. --["Users/sbyun"]<br> + ------<br> + [[include(Same IP Address)]]<br> + ''2009-03-19 08:57:23'' [[nbsp]] I read some of these comments and have to say my experience with this mgmt. team has been spectacular! They are quick to respond to any requests that are needed and just charge the market rate (ppl. are not forced to rent here, lol)..anyhow, this just looks like a unhappy person looking to take out their issues on somebody, so they write something negative. --["Users/davisaggie"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-04-17 15:34:53'' [[nbsp]] These comments seem outdated since i'm finishing my year here at these apts. and they're just great (there's a reason why they have a waiting list)..overall, Ali is real responsive to anything that comes up and is a real good handyman.I highly recommend this place over Tanglewood and Willows which are places I was at before. --["Users/darthvader2010"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-05-17 15:35:32'' [[nbsp]] I've had a great experience here where it's nearby the campus and downtown with ample parking compared to my friend's other areas of living...staying here another year. --["Users/Baron"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-09-23 11:18:37'' [[nbsp]] I lived there and the place was pretty nice, but the train was really loud and came early in the morning. The worst part was the management, they were inconsiderate and rude. They would go back on their word and would not allow you to put anything outside your apartment if you lived in the apartments on the street. Overall I would not recommend these apartments because the places were over priced but more importantly Ali was a awful land lord! --["Users/davisalum19"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-05-24 16:38:26'' [[nbsp]] This apartment complex is INFESTED with cockroaches. They are on the walkway in between apartments, swarming by the trash containers, and in the upstairs and downstairs of the units. We have had cockroaches all year, and are currently finding about 1 per day in our kitchen. At night, there are dozens on the walkways, especially near the recycling unit in the parking lot. We have had cockroaches crawl up drains in the kitchen sink, downstairs bathtub and upstairs bathtub. If you want to live here, be prepared to step on a lot of bugs. --["Users/DavisGrad10"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-06-09 11:52:10'' [[nbsp]] Thank you for your comment DavisGrad10. An exterminator has been ordered and cleaning the interior of units is the tenant responsibility. I can recommend a cleaner if that helps. --["Users/sritern"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-06-09 12:00:03'' [[nbsp]] Same person (user: sbyun) commenting for over 2.5 yrs. The comment of "he frequently checks in" applies to the person writing the post. It is unfortunate s/he had a bad experience, but the comments are outdated and is harassment/personal drama which is not necessary on wiki. --["Users/sritern"]<br> + ------<br> + '''The following comment was initially deleted because it does not appear to be a genuine comment from a tenant. '''<br> + ''2010-06-08 23:10:06'' [[nbsp]] I am a happy renter and highly recommend this place! The new management, building amenities, money saved on energy efficient utilities, quite neighborhood with extra insulation and proximity to campus are all great. I agree parking is easy with additional shaded parking on the street. Have not had any issues with cockroaches. Any normal cleaning of sinks, mopping, vacuuming, etc. would prevent attracting insects. --["Users/ResonsibleStudent"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-02-25 11:48:56'' [[nbsp]] Does anyone know the sq footage of these apartments?? Both 3 and 4 bedroom total sq. footage? Thank you! --["Users/FranThompson"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-05-03 13:37:13'' [[nbsp]] I don't understand the awful reviews about Ali. He really is a very approachable manager. As a proper tenant, we did a thorough inspection of the apartment when we moved in and he fixed all problems with any appliances at the time. Even when we were the ones to break the garbage disposal, and he told use we would have to pay for the plumber, he ended up fixing it himself with no charge. I by mistake even underpaid my rent once, just a typo on the bank transfer. He contacted me and did not charge a late fee.<br> + <br> + I am up before 6am every day and the first train does not come until just after 6:30am. I pretty much always find parking right in front of the apartments. I actually prefer to park on the street as apposed to the parking lot since the street is shaded. As far as cockroaches are concerned, I have never lived in an apartment/house in davis that did not have cockroaches at the very least outside the house. The one time I did find two roaches in this apartment, I contacted Ali and he put me in touch with the person to come spray the house and I haven't seen one since. Other than that, I might see one occasionally outside, but they are everywhere in davis.<br> + <br> + He does come around the apartments to work on the garden and outside maintenance, but has never come inside our apartment without advance notice and permission.<br> + <br> + For me its location is the best part, just a block from the Coop and three blocks from downtown. If I was staying in Davis, I would renew my lease. Even the girls who lived the apartment before us had been there for three years, I believe. --["Users/DTahiliani"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-01-12 14:10:50'' [[nbsp]] I have lived at this town-home complex for slightly more than six months, and in light of the many negative reviews of the dwelling and owner/operators, it seems appropriate to provide an account of my experience living at the Boardwalk Apartments, and particularly, to address some of the more sensational claims made in previous posts. First, I have enjoyed, tremendously, living at the Boardwalk Apartments. Ali has never related to me in the manner described above -- I have found him and his wife Michelle to be fine, pleasant, reasonable people --nor has he ever entered my apartment without my consent. Second, I have NEVER seen a cockroach in my apartment. In fact, it should be noted that the cleanliness of my unit (I can't, obviously, speak as to the condition of the other residences) was the principal reason that I decided to live here. Second, while the train does often pass by this property a couple of times a day, most often it passes by during normal waking hours (between 8 and 5 o'clock)) and usually without much fanfare. I urge anyone reading this to be mindful of the fact that one's perception of what constitutes a nuisance is a fairly subjective sort of thing. Personally, I do not find the train operations to be burdensome in any way. Last, I have paid a mere $100 each month that I have lived here, for water, sewage, garbage and electrical service. In Davis, that is a very reasonable sum of money to have to pay for such services. As for the parking, Ali and Michelle have in place a policy that provides the tenants of each unit one parking space, at no additional charge. Also, those who renew their lease are afforded the opportunity to acquire an additional, assigned parking space if space becomes available. Upon reflection, I think one would do well to realize that this is a very fair policy. For those that are deliberating about whether to live at the Boardwalk Apartments, they absolutely warrant your consideration.--["Users/HoldenCaulfield"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-01-31 13:55:02'' [[nbsp]] Zombiek: I am not Ali or Michelle Ghorbanzadeh, or anyone that they happen to be closely familiar with. I provided an account of my experience living at the Boardwalk Apartments, principally, because I found your account of living at the Boardwalk, and your experiences with Ali and Michelle, to be so remarkably inconsistent with mine. They have treated me well, so I thought it right to tell the users of this wiki, and anyone else that happens to peruse this site, my story. It's that simple. I use the pen name 'HoldenCaulfield' as a way of protecting my identity, which, as evidenced by your 'handle' of 'zombiek', I should think you would understand. It seems that I live in the unit that you once occupied, presumably with an individual by the name of S*** B******* (his mail often fills my mailbox.) If, however, you are still unconvinced, then I suppose you could inquire as to the location of the IP address of this post. I am, as I was when I first posted on this page, on the UC Davis campus, using a UC Davis wireless internet network. You're not really going to suggest that Ali or Michelle have access to campus wireless networks, are you? --["Users/HoldenCaulfield"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-03-02 15:20:20'' [[nbsp]] im thinking of maybe moving back to Davis for this summer. Are there and sub-leasers for $500/mo or less room? I was a prior student and feeling like being around the energy again. Would not mind being back living in the apartment i was before. --["Users/ResonsibleStudent"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-06-10 15:45:34'' [[nbsp]] After I first signed my lease, I was a little worried because I came across this site. However, I've lived in these apartments now for my second and third year of law school at Davis and find these comments to be exaggerated. The apartments are very nice -- two story townhomes, newly built with hardwood floors, and new appliances. Other apartments/homes in Davis are older and have a lot of problems -- but these apartments are really nice for davis, clean, safe, and really close to all the restaurants. Ali and Michelle will email/call you and try to give you an advance notice when they are showing your place as best that they can. They do not just show up randomly and are not intrusive or overburdensome. They look out for the residential community and try to keep the environment of the complex fun and student friendly. I would recommend living here as long as you are not bothered by the noise of the train (which me and most of my roommates weren't). --["Users/RabiaP"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-06-13 21:02:02'' [[nbsp]] I had a very pleasant experience living in Boardwalk Apartments. It's located in a very convenient location, all the amenities worked well and it felt very much like a home. Ali the owner was easy to contact and we had no trouble at all during our time there. I was worried about roaches when I moved in as well but the unit was very clean and my rooommates and I all had a great time living there. I would recommend it. --["Users/kpearl"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2014-02-11 09:10:28JabberWokkyRevert to version 1. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Boardwalk Apartments<p><strong></strong></p>No differences found!</div> Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2012-02-01 11:03:01WilliamLewisUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Front.jpg">Front.jpg</a>.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2012-02-01 10:58:20MichaelMikeyImage <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Front.jpg">Front.jpg</a> deleted.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 17:06:21JasonAllerUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Front.jpg">Front.jpg</a>.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 17:05:23JasonAllerUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Boardwalk.JPG">Boardwalk.JPG</a>.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 17:05:23JasonAllerImage <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Boardwalk.JPG">Boardwalk.JPG</a> deleted.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 16:29:10sriternUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Boardwalk.JPG">Boardwalk.JPG</a>.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 16:29:10sriternImage <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Boardwalk.JPG">Boardwalk.JPG</a> deleted.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 16:28:34sriternImage <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Front.jpg">Front.jpg</a> deleted.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 16:28:27sriternUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Boardwalk.JPG">Boardwalk.JPG</a>.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 16:28:10sriternImage <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Boardwalk.JPG">Boardwalk.JPG</a> deleted.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 16:28:04sriternUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Front.jpg">Front.jpg</a>.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 16:27:39sriternImage <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Front.jpg">Front.jpg</a> deleted.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 16:27:30sriternUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Boardwalk.JPG">Boardwalk.JPG</a>.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 16:27:30sriternImage <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Boardwalk.JPG">Boardwalk.JPG</a> deleted.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2010-06-08 16:26:48sriternUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Front.jpg">Front.jpg</a>.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2008-01-07 18:19:00JasonAllerUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments?action=Files&do=view&target=Boardwalk.JPG">Boardwalk.JPG</a>.Boardwalk Apartmentshttp://daviswiki.org/Boardwalk_Apartments2007-11-06 22:53:17sbyun <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Boardwalk Apartments<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Location'''||<br> + ||811 &amp; 819 H Street (across from the train tracks)||<br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Contact'''||<br> + ||Mahvash and Ali Ghorbanzadeh||<br> + <br> + <br> + '''The Boardwalk''' is a small townhouse/apartment complex with 8 units located in 2 buildings, 811 and 819 H Street.
