This is now our 4th visit to this apartment and our week has been wonderful again . The location is perfect to get easily to so many places Santa Monica , Laguna Beach , LA, Disney and then there is Newport beach minutes away . Since we were last here there have been some small improvements new soft fluffy towels and a new washing machine and dryer . The apartment has everything you would need . Our only thing would be to avoid American School holidays as everywhere is so busy compared to when we normally come in September. Thank you Chris
Great stay at Watermarke
Overall, a fantastic stay at Chris' property. The Watermarke complex is a beautiful property with an amazing pool area, fitness center, and absolutely no need to be concerned about security - not that there is any reason to be in Irvine/Newport - because the place is locked down tighter than Fort Knox! Chris' unit is extremely clean and the entire complex is very quiet. No issues whatsoever with neighbors. The location is ideal for easy access to/from John Wayne airport, the 405 freeway, as well as UCI and the Newport Coast. Chris is incredibly responsive to any questions you have. We definitely enjoyed our stay here. There are a couple of issues to bear in mind depending on your needs, however. If you are more than one person and intend to do things separate from each other - for example, one person wants to go to the pool or fitness center while another wants to leave the complex and go shopping/to the beach - make sure to ask Chris for an extra key card. As I mentioned, the place is locked up tight and you need the key card not just to enter the parking garage but also to access the pools and fitness area as well as playground and tennis courts. If you only have the one key card and don't do everything together - or one person is staying in the condo - then it would be a balancing act to figure out who has the key and when. In addition, most of the condo is a dead zone when it comes to cell phone service. The wifi works great but as far as making or receiving phone calls on your cell phone, it only works (sometimes) on the patio or very near to the patio doors (but not always). Otherwise, you have to go out to the playground or somewhere away from the building to make a phone call, but even this does not work all the time. We ended up having a medical emergency during our trip and this was the most frustrating part of our stay. A couple of times my phone wouldn't work anywhere on the property and I had to actually get in my car and drive to a parking lot off the property to get my phone to work. This is not Chris' fault but it is an issue in case you are intending to make or receive phone calls from this property. Those issues aside, however, it is an excellent property, Chris is an excellent host, and the cost is fair for the area.
Amazing two month stay
The apartment is fab. The facilities such as the pool and kids play park are fantastic.
Very satisfied, very nice Condo with everything you need. I would stay there again!
