Park 5th Avenue in Chula Vista, CA

Not a great place or luxury place but very convenience, great location close to everything schools, shopping centers, trolley. Apartments are big, only one bedroom for two people. The manager is a very responsible person and like any other human, she tries very hard to keep up with everybody in the complex. Nice place to live.
