Today was the first day we called Archstone home! (Many, many thanks to our family for helping us move boxes in the rain.) And though, its a small one-bedroom apartment that costs more each month than our home in Mesa, we still love it! Its clean and quite (except for the occasional airplane), and a good fit for our commutes to work -- with one going up the peninsula, and the other either in san jose, or on the east bay.
We try to make use of our work-out room, but since its been cold or windy we haven't taken advantage much of our pool. Perhaps this summer. :)
Btw, THE Carlyle is our rival apartment complex down the street. We believe THE Carlyle to be quite high-brow, and rather snooty, for no other reason but for the name of the establishment, and the fancy-ness of its front gate. "We shall have to write more on this fine dwelling in a latter post." (To be read in a snobby British accent.)
