"As a first-time travel nurse 9 months ago, I was apprehensive about trying to find housing in an unfamiliar area, but Kern Apartments quickly laid all my fears to rest. They listened to what I wanted and needed, and the apartment that I rented was perfect for my needs. It was a large studio with lots of windows and natural light, completely renovated, energy-efficient, and conveniently located in the downtown area. My drive to Kern Medical Center was approximately 5-7 minutes; Bakersfield Memorial would be even closer, and of course San Joaquin Community is half a block away. Parking was easy, right at the front door, and I never had a problem finding a spot. I'm back in the situation of looking for housing in Santa Maria; I wish I had Hope and Kern Apartments there!"

"We have rented from the Kern Apartment management for three months but because our contract has ended we will be leaving. They were a super staff who promptly attended to all of our needs. It's been a pleasure dealing with each and every one at Kern Apartments. If we come back this way, you will be the first people we contact."
