Cute apartment in a good location
My husband and I stayed at this condo during a one week visit to see family. I cannot rave enough about the excellent communication with both the owner and property manager. Both of them were extremely responsive to whatever we needed. The apartment had everything we needed for the week and parking was convenient.
Location location location!
It was such an ideal location for us as we were able to get everywhere easily. All the basics we needed were provided. Easy and quick communication with Peter. The Watermarke amenities were fitting for Orange County. Beautiful pool.
Owner resides out of country
Owner not flexible to change of dates (so must be absolutely sure of you dates, unlike hotels) and he resides in Scotland, leaving one independent representative to assist locally. The condo office was not helpful at all, as they typically are not responsible for the units at all. We had to take care of the house or we had to hire someone to fix and owner willing to pay back - was not such a good arrangement. We should have two access cards for the two of us for The long 50 day stay . Unit was dark, like most buildings and units in that area of that age.
Good location, though. Good dog pooping areas. Safe and good parking in garage.
Thank you for your review.
I just wanted to clarify I did change your booking from 60 days to 50, at a cost which I incurred. But as I informed you I am unable to refill bookings at such short notice. And I disagree with your statement that hotels would accommodate these requests after a booking is made.
In regards to the property manager, the only time the property manager wasnt able to assist you was when she was taken into hospital, replying to your daily texts. And I was in constant communication with you on a near daily basis. I would mention that the apartment is rented as a self catering accommodation on VRBO so usually you only have an owner to deal with issues.
Also, the condo office is an independent company maintaining and managing the complex. They do not deal with individual units or rentals. I did mention this to you on several occasions.
However I do appreciate the feedback.
Comfy Condo in Great Location
First class accommodations with resort level amenities in a great location close to JWA and UCI. The property manager was very welcoming, informative and facilitated our early check-in. We enjoyed a wonderful holiday gathering with our west coast family and look forward to staying here again on future visits to Orange County.
Comfortable home in a wonderful location
Peter's home is ideally situated in Irvine. The condominium is comfortable and well equipped. Terah, the property manager, met us at arrival and walked us through all of the security and features of the condominium . We appreciated the proximity to the secure parking. We did not utilize the swimming pools but enjoyed the hot tubs each evening. We come to Orange County about every six weeks and will definitely try to stay here in the future. The only negative would be the deafening fan in the bathroom, but we notified the owner and assume it will be repaired in the near future. Loved it!
Fabulous vacation, great unit and perfect location!
Peter met us on arrival and everything was exactly as pictured, The unit had everything we needed. Our grandchildren loved the playground. The proximity to all activities in the area was great.
Thank you, Peter for sharing your unit with us. We look forward to our next stay in Irvine.
