We like Yosemite Villas Section B a lot. The maintenance is superb. The other staff is superb. Our landlord is superb. The only thing I would say, coming as an
American Expat, is there aren't many Expats in our neighborhood. Whomever lives around us never leaves their home so we never see our neighbors. We somewhat feel
isolated. I know that Yosemite Villas Section C is much more conducive to Expat life. Sometimes we wished we lived there...however...we did not like the houses there.
So, it's all give and take. So far it has worked well for us (except for the making friends from neighbors scenario).
We have lived in Yosemite C section for almost 3 years. Having a good landlord is the most important. We chose Yosemite because of the building style, which, depending
on the interior design. Quality of the houses again depend on the owner, so watch out that the necessary repairs have been done before you move in. The basements can
also get humid in the summer and a dehumidifier is essential.
The villas are nice, but the management company leaves a lot to be desired... The level of spoken English is minimal. We were lucky to have an excellent agent and
landlord who spoke English.
We have lived in Yosemite C section for 6 months and our agent helped to get out of it. our house was built with substandard material and requires maintenance and
repair literally everyday. it would be bearable if the landlady was cooperative, but she is not and the management is absolutely hopeless. It is sad to see such
beautiful houses being wasted because of contractors cheating on workmanship and materials.
We really enjoyed living in Yosemite Villas and after extensive searching in Beijing suburb, we think that it is definitely one of the A housing complexes. The quality
of construction is quite good, but each unit has its own standard and design. The House we rented in Yosemite was OK. We had many problems with HVAC in our place,
which I think is quite common through-out Beijing/China. The club house is very nice looking, with great amenities. Many repairs cannot be done by the management
office, we must have our agent to contact landlord's contractor. Luckily, we have Greenpath looking after us.
