Cranbrook Apartments, managed by Tandem Properties, offers one and two-bedroom units. Despite its location near the train tracks, busy J Street, and Covell Boulevard (across from the old Hunt Wesson Plant), many resident DavisWiki commenters think that it is a pretty quiet place to live. The security deposits are $300 for the one bedroom and $400 for the two bedroom. Residents seem to like the hot water, fast and free internet, WiFi in the clubhouse, new machines in the fitness room, landscaping, spacious closets, and the responsive management and maintenance team. Apparently the management is really good about fixing problems within about an hour of hearing about them.
If you like living in the mix then Cranbrook Apartments was made for you! Cranbrook is located (conveniently!) along Covell Blvd. within walking distance of Nugget, Subway, Hair Salon, Travis Credit Union, and more!

2010-01-05 11:51:49 Cranbrook rules. Definitely one of the best complexes around. The manager chrissy and melissa are the shit. Not literally. The premises is always very clean and i always see maintenance and landscaping being done. Very friendly staff all around. Awesome pool, awesome workout room, soda machine, twenty four hour study lounge and laundry room. Its expensive and the rooms aren't too big, but you realize why you pay so much after you move and everyone at your new apartments sucks, and its filthy. I had the worse roommate anyone could possibly have but cranbrook was still awesome. Cranbrook, yay. —Maqz
2010-01-28 00:50:55 My roommate and I have been living here for the past few months and I can honestly say that its totally worth it. It is expensive, but once you move in you understand why. The only problem we have is that living on the second story we can hear when our neighbors; both downstairs and next door, close their doors - it shakes the whole living room, same happens when the trains are passing by. Other then that, whenever we have any maintenance problems we just call down to the office and they are here within the half our, its relatively quiet, close to P, Q, and E lines the nugget and CVS. The lounge, gym, laundry room are all clean and well kept as is the lawns, during the summer and fall they were always here 2x a week. Everyone at the office is great, and are VERY helpful. The amenities are great as well! Also our rent actually decreased by $20, and once we renew our lease we get our full deposit back ! ! ! —VMtz
So we did get our full $400 deposit back (with the $3 interest) and altogether our rent was lowered by $40
2010-02-23 02:45:46 I haven't lived here for that long but it seems pretty nice so far. When we first moved in we had a pretty big rat problem and some other minor problems, but management was really quick and friendly in fixing it. Sometimes the laundry room fills up, but if you time it right it should be fine. It's very quiet, I live in a complex next to Covell and was worried about car sounds but it's really not bad. The noise thing is true, when people are outside it sounds like they are talking to you, but there's not usually people outside my window. Pipes squeak and it was annoying at first but I'm used to it now. It's very close to the E bus line and the Nugget, which is convenient. The bike ride isn't too bad. I like how they have free cookies during their open hours and a cookie oven in the study lounge...is that there for tenants to use also? I always wondered that.
Overall it's a nice place to live, really pretty trees and spacious layout. Maintenance is pretty stellar, and there isn't too much to complain about. —AlisaKim
2010-07-09 13:46:57 I have been living here for almost two years now and can say that I have had a pleasant experience, mostly due to management staff who are really enthusiastic, helpful, and make things easy for you. Krissy, the Residential Manager, has been awesome in helping accomodate all my needs here. I would recommend not residing at the west end near the train tracks, where I lived for over a year. The second year, I chose to move nearer to the entrance area by the corner of J and Covell and it has been really nice. Quiet and covered by trees so, I rarely have to turn on the air-conditioning even in the 90 degree hear so far. Cool staff, endless hot water, free DSL, and spacious master bedroom with walk-in closet, big pool with spa, a nice 24 hour study room with comfy leather couches, and the workout room were some of my favorites here...some reasons why I decided to lease for another year. All these were helpful in dealing with the stress of applying to and studying for pharmacy school. Yay, I got in! —LKim78
2010-07-22 15:01:16 I lived at Cranbrook for two years and am happy to have stayed there for my entire term at Davis. All my friends were always moving about trying to find a better deal than their previous apartment, but I did some research before moving to Davis and found that Cranbrook matched my needs best. I was looking for something far enough away from campus that you don't have to deal with the bar crowds if you choose not to, but within walking distance of a shopping center for groceries and such. Cranbrook was perfect. I believe that the residents are from all walks of life, undergrads, graduate students, families, and the single working crowd. This keeps everything low-key and mutually respectful. None the less, we had plenty of BBQs out by the pool without every having a problem with management. The price isn't bad, and we got all our deposit back plus a bit of interest, which is unheard of. The management couldn't be any more warm or friendly, in fact they felt more like extended family than "complex overseers". All in all, I'm very happy to have stayed at Cranbrook while at Davis, and would recommend it to any friend, I did actually, and three friends of mine live there now! —CarsonConner
2010-08-06 14:00:06 The Cranbrook Apartments are the BEST apartment complex in Davis. I toured many apartments when I moved to Davis last year and nothing compared to Cranbrook. The management and maintenance teams are fabulous. Management knows you by first name and is available to answer any question and help you with anything you need. Maintenance responds to any question or problem you might have promptly and efficiently. The Cranbrook Apartments are affordable, well maintained, quiet, friendly neighbors, great pool, close to bus lines, easy biking distance to campus, and walking distance to a great shopping center. I recommend this complex to anyone currently looking for a place to live in Davis. —EDunn
2010-08-14 09:11:42 I have lived at Cranbrook for 3yrs now and it is the place to be. The Management and Maintenance Staff are amazing and super Friendly, they make sure you are well taken care of. The Lounge is nicely decorated and the pool just got new pool side furniture that is so Country Club Worthy. The gym is pretty nice too, its perfect for when you are home and don't want to go all the way to the arc, just to workout. Ohh did I mention you can also reserve the lounge for when you want to have "get togethers" and "study groups". Plus there are always fresh cookies available, and snack in the lounge plus the awesome Cappuccino Machine on a well stocked coffee-tea bar. The whole property is well maintained, cleaners at least 3 times a week,gardening weekly....what better place to live in than one that is well kept. They even clean your carpet when you renew your lease. And the West End Parking Lot was recently repaved, so no guessing is this a park, it is beautiful and well defined with Disable Parking as well. The apartments are really spacious!! The 1bd apartments have 2 very nice size closets and enough space in the rooms for a full desk, queen size bed, a dresser, lamp tables and still much more space. I have that much furniture and still managed to fit in a large queen size air mattress when I had guest over. —StarHarris
2010-08-19 06:24:36 I am looking for someone that is willing to take over my year long lease and wants to move in soon. My brother and I enjoy living at Cranbrook but we cannot afford our 2b apartment anymore. We have a bottom floor two bedroom that is located next to the pool, very close to parking lot, trash and laundry. If anyone is interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks =) —Jfranckiewicz
2010-09-03 16:24:34 I just moved from cranbrook and I was very satisfied with the management as well as the maintenance staff. Any problems I had were immediately resolved and the front office was very friendly towards walking in with any of your concerns. I am really going to miss the friendly service provided by the Cranbrook staff. The apartments are very nice and moderately priced for the city of Davis. I really enjoyed living at Cranbrook and would recommend it to any person looking for a quiet place to live with a competent staff and beautiful pool. —ElliotSobel
2010-09-14 00:14:28 The painting inside the units at cranbrook is always great! I wonder why that is —StevenDaubert
**This is because residents are allowed to paint their own apartments as long as they paint over in white when they leave. jenb
2011-03-15 09:18:52 Anyone willing to post their average cost of Electricity and Gas per month? —KirstenSargent
I pay about $35 a month for PG&E. We try to keep all the lights not in use off and keep the heater at 70. We also tend to cook and use the dishwasher a lot too.
2011-04-13 12:53:42 Thanks for posting your info about PG&E!! I noticed a comment on the Facebook page about inspection week .. What is inspection week exactly? :) —KirstenSargent * Hi Kirsten! Inspection week is when Steve & Ed go to each apartment and make sure that all of the appliances are functioning properly and that everything is in good repair (e.g., doors, windows, light fixtures, etc.). We made sure that everyone had notice that they'd be popping in—this only happens once a year. I hope this has been helpful! ~Cranagement
2011-04-16 10:29:58 APT 168 resident here at Cranbrook. I was supposed to post this but never had the time. Great service! The office closed already on friday and I had to pick up a package. Management stayed just to give me my package! that made my weekend!
2011-05-12 21:44:53 I love this apartment. I took a tour with my parents in Spring Quarter 2010 and moved in June 2010. There've been very few issues, and those issues have been dealt with quickly by management. If anyone else is interested, one of the rooms in my 2 bedroom is going to be up for sublease starting June 10 2011 through August 31 2011. I put the room up on CraigsList here http://sacramento.craigslist.org/sub/2378156315.html if anyone is interested.
Bills usually total about $30 per person (PG&E and phone), and even though you'd be getting the bigger room (11x13), rent is split equally. I'm OK with two people sharing that room, too, so rent would be super reduced :) —ChristineDillard
2011-05-17 19:24:27 I am interested in this place but hesitant - for any past or present tenants, were you comfortable during the summer without central air? —isands
2011-07-11 23:02:27 I posted before about needing a Summer room mate, but it turns out I also need a room mate for September 1 2011 - August 31 2012. If anyone's interested, please contact the front office and tell them you're interested in a room in apartment 366. There's also an ad on Craigslist here: http://sacramento.craigslist.org/sub/2489733745.html . —ChristineDillard
2011-07-11 23:05:34 Hey! This is a super awesome complex! The management rocks! I have a room available for sublease for the entire upcoming school year! Here is the craigslist ad with all the details! http://sacramento.craigslist.org/roo/2499349679.html You will have your own room at $577/month and the apartment will be shared with one super friendly girl and a cat. You will not need to pay for utilities or Internet. Let me know if your interested! —RoxanneCoonrod
2011-07-28 16:46:55 Hi, All - want to recommend Cranbrook as highly as possible for the simple fact that the management is superlative and that, ultimately, is what affects a comfortable apartment life. "No problem!" is the constant response, no matter how inconvenient the request to their time. I've seen Steve working hard on an issue on a Sunday morning, I get immediate response to any problem, large or small with the apartment, and really feel they are friends, not just "the management". If potential noise is an issue for you, ask for something away from the J/Covell corner, or near the trains, but otherwise, just normal apt. sounds. Great neighbors and a huge kitty-friendly population. Our neighbors helped us with a charming stray, and we kitty-sat for them while they were away. There's no nonsense here and if there is, you are aware of it instantly and it is handled instantly. Truly nice folks here and the study lounge is tres comfy and always smells like cookies! You might pay extra here, but it is infinitely worth it. Kudos to the staff, one and all, and would recommend to anyone, not just students. Cheers, folks and enjoy Cranbrook. I sure did! —catchambers
2011-09-20 18:25:24 I really enjoyed living at Cranbrook. I only moved because I needed a bigger place. Anyways, as far as the apartments go, they were in nice and clean. My biggest complaint about this place was that when the sprinklers were on, we only had hot water.
But the thing that made this complex so amazing was the management. They were always friendly and always helpful. Maintenance issues were fixed quickly, and they office staff was always great and helpful. I had some roommate issues that they were even willing to help work out! They are great people, and I recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice apartment. Oh, and we got back our full deposit with no hassle whatsoever. —LinLulu
2012-04-09 17:05:43 I made a big move from AZ to Davis and am so thankful to have found Cranbrook! It's been a GREAT first place to live! Especially with being new to California, I appreciated having excellent management. They have amazing attitudes and are eager to take care of their residents. With any little maintenance things, Steve or Ed have come by to help very quickly. Love having a workout room, pool, and being close to downtown. Lived here for 16 months and have deeply enjoyed it! Moving now that I've found a house to rent but will miss the excellence of Cranbrook! —JenTiffan
2012-04-18 12:42:57 This comment may sound out of the ordinary, but bear with me. Aside from the obvious things that an apartment complex should have (walls, roof, working toilets, fresh water, etc.) Cranbook offers by far the best living experience in Davis. I've lived in Davis now for about seven years, during that time I have stayed in south davis with Allegre apartments, west davis at a privately managed apartment, and the remainder of my time in North Davis, one year at Chautauqua and the this will be my fourth year living at Cranbrook. I know what you're thinking, he's spent three years living at the same place, and he's signed up for a fourth, they must have some awesome management, great on-site staff for repairs and maintenance, and be an overall great place to live. It is, all that and more. I've never really taken advantage of the pool or the gym facility that they have on site, but they do offer those. It's located close to Nugget market, which is a great place to go and get your groceries, as well as the occasional dinner.
But here is what I really love about Cranbrook, I live in an apartment with some empty space out front in the form of a concrete patio where bikes used to be stored. I say "used to" because Cranbrook has allowed me to reappropriate the space into my own little orchard and garden. At the moment I have over a dozen fruit trees growing in buckets, a 2'x8' foot raised planter box, and they're discussing letting me put in a greenhouse. Maybe they know that the more stuff they let me put in, the harder it will be for me to leave, or maybe they just really love and appreciate their tenants. Either way, how awesome is it that an apartment complex would let you do that? And we've also tilled one of the smaller dead areas where nothing was growing and planted a few flowers and veggies for the summer.
Never before have I lived somewhere that I would have even considered broaching those ideas to management. The folks who work here are friendly, chatty, and enjoy engaging in conversation with their residents. I often find myself going in to hang-out or chat with the office folks at least once a week. Krissy and Olga are a blast to chat with and a guaranteed laugh. Sarah, who will sadly be leaving at the end of the summer to move onto bigger and better things, Stanford (congratulate her on that if you see her), is hilarious and always fun. I consider all of the folks who work there to be friends of mine and people that I will miss when I move out one day. Steve and Ed are the two maintenance staff that are always around, they are prompt, friendly, and great people to be around. Sometimes it's awkward to have someone inside your house working while you're home, but not with Ed and Steve, they're friendly and engaging and there's never any kind of awkwardness around them while they're there.
Bottom line, had I known about this place when I first came to Davis, this is where I would have moved to start (I also wouldn't have lost any money on security deposits from moving so often). Sign the lease for a year, and then the next, it's a decision you won't regret. —PhilipCelloJr
2012-05-13 16:59:54 I lived in both the single and 2 bedrooms in Cranbrook within the past 2 years and I say, it's a pretty decent place to live in. I lived in the back portion, so the downside to that was that the train would annoy me in the morning but it would wake me up for class along with the boppers who run around the area. I timed myself and it takes awhile for me to get to my car from my apartment but only because I lived in the farthest part literally on the edge of the area. What I hated most about this place was whenever I parked close to the buildings, you know the U shape area of the parking lots, not the entrance but the part where it's closest to the buildings in the back portion of the lot, people would just park where they would block a couple of cars from getting out. It has happened to me more than 10x within 2 months by the same people. I'm not trying to be racist, but it was these African American people who lived in the back and they yelled at me for asking them to move their cars because they made me late for work and school a couple of times. The staff is great here though, just I remember the lady cleaning the washing machine with her mop, don't know if it was the same one she used to clean the floor with. Decent workout area and pool. I moved out because I have friends who lived closer to school and got a cheaper price from them, other than that the distance from school and everything else is in the perfect area and I would stay here if I were alone. —JaceWinter
2012-09-24 16:34:44 I needed to upgrade from a 1 bedroom apt to a 2 bedroom. Our neighbor wanted to downgrade so we both got together and signed a contract asking management to not get involved as we trade places. The unit was not as clean as we would have hoped. There were stains on the carpet, the walls were discolored, and the unit was just not very clean. Even though we asked management to stay out of our agreement they still replaced all the carpets, repainted the apartment, and sent in a full cleaning team at no cost to us. I've lived in a few other apartment complexes in Davis and Cranbrook has the best management by far. If you're looking for a new place I highly recommend checking out Cranbrook.
PS. They always have fresh cookies in the office. —GlenGillman
2012-10-13 08:42:24 So, maintenance is amazing here. Every problem was fixed within two days. We just had a clogged toilet and garbage disposal, and someone showed up at 7:00 on a Friday night, fixed everything and then said they would replace both of them. Couldn't have asked for more. The places are nice, the pool is great. Best apartment complex I've lived in so far and this is my 5th year in Davis. —KyleTos
2013-02-26 11:17:51 I love living at Cranbrook apartments. This is the first place I've lived at on my own (with my boyfriend) and I was actually really scared to live on my own at first. However, when I came here to do the tour, everyone was just so friendly. There were fresh cookies and smiling faces to greet us. They have been so flexible with our financial aid when it comes to paying rent and the activities they organize are amazing. The thanksgiving dinner was fabulous. And the maintenance has been fantastic. I can not recommend these guys more highly. Best first apartment I could have asked for. —VictoriaAugusto
2013-02-26 11:35:00 This place is awesome. The prices are reasonable. The management is wonderful and very punctual when it comes to maintenance and/or additional renovations. They had to fix three pipelines and we got a new bathroom out of it (new floors and new paint!). My apartment is cozy, and the study hall is great for finding new neighbors: students! In other words: you should move here! —LeryanBurrey
2013-02-27 20:37:23 I absolutely love living at Cranbrook! I have nothing but good things to say about this place. When my fiancé and I looked at apartments, we knew from the moment we got here that this was the complex to choose. Not only is it the same price/a little less as most places in Davis, but its also the most modern. I love the layout of my apartment. I have a 1 bed 1 bath and the bedroom is huge and I have a gorgeous walk in closet, everything about the place is perfect! The management is insanely awesome. They are always there when you need them and are never bothered by us coming in. In fact, they love visitors. They are always doing something fun for us residents. They had a big welcome bbq this fall with an awesome raffle, a huge catered Thanksgiving dinner, they provided lunch for us all of finals week (including Nutella), they had set up a gorgeous dessert bar for Valentine's Day, the list goes on! The facilities are all 24 hour, which is perfect, especially for the study lounge. They are always friendly and understanding. They never enter your apartment without your permission and always let you know when they have been there. When it came time to resign our lease, we were in an unsure situation of whether or not we could stay, but they gave us an extension (which was very convenient on our part and made our situation much less stressful). Also, my fiancé noticed a problem with our car and searched town for someone to fix it. Everyone wanted hundreds of dollars so he returned home and the maintenance guys here at Cranbrook lent him all the tools he needed to fix it himself and they even helped him do it! That saved us so much money and made us appreciate our management so much more. This kind of management is hard to find. Everything about them is fun and they care so much about their residents, it really shows. You haven't experienced good management until you have met Cranagement! —ChelseaUhrig
2013-03-29 01:19:02 My husband and I (and baby) lived here fro about 2 years. This is THE best apartment complex in Davis. We absolutely had a 100% positive experience with everything about this place. The staff are SO awesome. Chrissy, Emily, and Nicole always made us feel taken care of. They are so attentive and make sure that problems are resolved quickly. I LOVE cranbrook! —jenb
