I'm sorry..but I can not agree with the 2 reviews I looked at. This is our 3rd time here and we wouldn't live anywhere else. The staff is always glad to see us. We also get a great response for maintenance issues. As long as our rent stays where it is...we will live here until we plan to move out of state when my husband retires. So, we'll be here for at least 3 more years.

This is a strange mixture of condos (haves) on one side and apartments (have nots) on the other. Front desk folks tend to be rude / unhelpful - very strictly interpreting the Fair Housing Act and so will not accommodate ANYTHING unusual. Friday and Saturday nights tend to be noisy, so bring your earplugs. People tend to keep to themselves. Apartments were built 20 years ago. I'd think for the money go for a smaller or newer complex and you'll be happier.

We lived at On the Green for just about a year.
There are several good points about this complex. Fist of all the rents are quite affordable. There are many floor plans to choose from, and all of them are quite large in comparason to most apartments. They include woodburning fireplaces, which really cut down on utility bills (although I did find that only the artificial type logs seemed to work well). The grounds are nicely landscaped. There are a few play areas, and outdoor and indoor pool. The so called gym is pretty weak though.

This is a great place for families. There are tons of kids around, and unlike some places we have lived, the staff is very welcoming of children. They even put on special events for the kids every so often. Located in the superb Mukilteo school district, there are two elementary schools, a Jr high and High school all within walking distance, as well as the very lovely Mukilteo Public Library. Just a few minutes off the 'Speedway', you are less than 10 minutes from Boeing and the Whidbey Island Ferry.

Now for the cons:
The staff is young and inexperienced. Often they seem not to know what they can do to help you, or perhaps they are not given the authority to do so by higher powers. In any case it can be frustrating. Maintanance issues seem to be addressed slowly. You have to really keep on them. Also, the low rents sometimes seem to attract small number of a certain type of neighbor I'd rather not have (although at the time we moved out they seemed to be making an effort to remedy that situation). There were some things stolen out of cars occasionally.

Overall it is a pretty nice place to live if you have a family. The large apartments, kid friendly environment and excellent schools make the downsides worth it.
A word of advice. Choose your building carefully. The rent is based on desirability of the location as well as floorplan. The cheaper units tend to be the ones with loud neighbors and in high traffic areas.

PROS: Price, School District, Size of Units, Family Friendly
CONS: Service
