Terracina Apartments is a rental housing community developed by Community Housing Opportunities Corporation (CHOC) for very low, low and moderate income households. Terracina also provides a resident services program which provides residents with professional staff to assist them in enhancing the quality of life within their residential communities and achieving individual personal goals.
Terracina is a joint venture between CHOC and USA Properties within the 70-unit mixed-income Wildhorse Family Apartments in Davis' Wildhorse subdivision. Terracina offers a mix of two through four-bedroom apartments with amenities that include a community building, swimming pool, children's play area, individual garages and private storage units. Rents are tiered to a mix of income levels: 41 units are "tax credit" eligible with affordability at 50% and 60% of median income; the remaining 39 units are affordable at 80% of median income. USA Properties is the property management agent for Terracina at Wildhorse as of 2007. Prior to that it was CHOC's affiliate, Sterling Asset Management Company.

2009-03-05 21:23:17 I have to post something here. The manager here is completely immoral and abuses her powers (the Caucasian woman, long hair, fake nails). I had a dispute with my roommate and she ended up kicking me out of the apartment. I was not on the lease because the manager ADVISED US that I should not be put on the lease or else we wouldn't qualify to live there. When i approached her for help after the roommate situation, she claimed that she did no such thing (when she was the one who FORGED my other roommate's signature). I even had the management company get involved, but of course, in an effort to avoid a legal suit filed against them, they sided with the manager. I REALLY wish I had some sort of evidence so that I could get this lady fired and have some serious action taken against the management company.
I am completely over this situation. I lost about $1000 dollars, and so did my other roommate, but what could we possibly do right? I really wish justice could be brought to us but it makes me glad that someone will read this. Maybe that witch will get fired. Completely inappropriate and unjust. —renee415
2011-01-20 13:59:25 I wanted to live here for the longest time. These apartments are NICE. Pool, community room, and they even have some 4 bedroom units! I'm not sure though if they have a washer/dryer...but if they do, you've hit the jackpot. —ucdsunshine
2013-09-11 13:37:11 We were interested in living in this part of town as well as in the potential for having a washer and dryer in our apartment. We found this "low-income" apartment complex and went in to see an apartment as well as get the run down on pricing, etc. We ended up leaving very disappointed. The apartments are very nice, we'd move in a heartbeat. The problem was that the "low-income" price for a 2-bedroom was over $1200. Then, on top of the $1200, you had to pay to rent the washer and dryer from a third party or buy your own washer and dryer and have it installed because the apartments were not equipped with the appliances, only the hook-ups. If we could afford $1200+/month for an apartment we wouldn't be "low-income"... This is the same price I could pay at a non-low-income complex. —JSilva
2014-04-16 15:45:25 Been living in this complex for about a year now. It's very good price as I pay $400 for a room in a 4 bed 1.5 bath. As a word of warning the walls are a bit thin, I have the room right next to the living room and can constantly hear the TV. It's no big deal though and I'd be willing to move back in. No washer and dryer in your own apartment so you do have to pay about $3 to do laundry. My experience with the management has been pleasant so far though. —AndrewCGreen
2016-04-28 11:44:55 Back at home, my family lived in low income housing and they did an inspection every year. It's expected and doesn't put any kind of dent in our lives. Here, they do it once every couple months. These inspections are supposedly "random" but our unit has been chosen a couple times consecutively. You can imagine how invasive and excessive this feels to me. Walls are very thin. You can hear eeeevveerryyyyything. Lots of rules that they send notices/warnings for that feel like a waste of time and energy to me, like only allowing three plants on the patio??? The pool is still closed for the season. When will they open? They gave us a laundry key which I assumed was for us residents to use after they close it, however they deadbolt it at night so the key is useless to me. They're not opening the laundry room on time either today. I've got things to do and a life to live and yet here I am drafting this comment as I wait... I feel constricted here and wouldn't come back after my lease ends tbh. The upside to this place is that it's clean, but so are a lot of other places... —CGDH
2019-05-17 13:14:31 I see these comments are out of date and unfortunately this page is misleading. Terracina is not low income housing, they are Section 42 tax credit for middle income households. They are affordable for Davis and the rents are below Davis market. My father has lived here for several years, unfortunately the rent is getting to high for someone with only Social Security income. It is hard to find Low income housing for seniors in Davis. Although this property has had it's challenges in the past because of manager turn over, My father and I have been very happy with the current manager. It feels like she has stuck around the longest and has gotten the community on track and always takes the time to listen to concerns. There has been many positive changes the past 3 years and I am sad to say if the rent goes any higher we will have to move my father out of Davis. Regarding other comments, Terracina does have washer and dryer hookups and if you choose not provide your own there is a coin operated laundry room onsite. There are inspections about 3 times a year and I have heard of other residents getting more then that if they are chosen for the random inspections by other agencies. I believe most people who have nothing to hide will not mind them. It is understandable management would want to change AC filters and make sure there are no other safety issues. I never have to worry about the living conditions because my father is given proper maintenance services. There is so many good things about the Terracina community I could go on and on about the current state of this community because it has come a long way. We appreciate the managers communication and caring nature. That is hard to find. —DavisLiving
