The good about this place is that Taleen is really nice and her place is very close to the beach. The apartment itself is spacious and pretty clean.
The not so good was it is on the corner of a very noisy road. This wouldn't be that bad but her windows are probably single pain, so you can hear everything and I mean everything. The apartment is above a garage. Stomp around all you want, no big deal. However, that garage door opens up a lot and it's not pleasant to hear or feel (the main bedroom is above the garage). Because of the windows being the way they are, there is a constant draft. Brrr. I took both blankets but they weren't enough to keep the chill out. I'd suggest keeping more blankets there. The decor needs some sprucing up for the amount of money it was to stay there. I left after one night. There's nothing to do in the immediate vicinity unless you like tiny strip malls with donut shops. Honestly, the best thing about this place is it's proximity to the beach. I wouldn't recommend staying here with so many other options.
Taleen's place was perfect! It was everything I could possibly wish for. It was clean, close to the beach and across the street from the best donut shop ever!! The patio space was very nice too. The house had everything we needed, and honestly it looked better than the pictures. Taleen was a great host and super easy to communicate with. The only flaw was that the guests downstairs from us had complaints about us being noise when we were talking at normal volume, but Taleen handled the situation and communicated with us very well. My friend and I loved it! I would definitely stay here again and I would recommand this place to everyone!
PROs: Super clean, close to sand, close to shops and restaurants, great for families with kids. master closet is so big you could put a crib in there for a baby. Taleen is a very nice host. Will probably stay again.
CONs: #1) TVs were not advertised in the listing; but be aware there is only 1 cable for 1 TV. many other cables in the apt but we could not get cable in any of the rooms. we came to the beach to relax-not watch TV. but it rained on us for 2 days, my 9 year old broke his collar bone in the surf, and all 5 of us had to share 1 TV with 3 kids. #2) Shower drain leaked into garage; so we all had to hurry and shower after coming in from the winter weather at the beach. #3) Toilet was sloooow for the first part of the week. Thanksgiving morning I had to go no.2 sooo bad and my hubby said I could NOT use the toilet. I ran to the car, slowly had to pull out of the garage, and race to the park down the street! meanwhile hubby used a trash bag to get suction and put his hands in the flithy water. needless to say, he fixed the toilet! we searched everywhere for a plunger. finally asked the guests dowstairs and they had it . . . but too late :(
Hi Jessica and Family-
Hope your son is healing well... The tv in the small bedroom was brought in by a guest for gaming purposes and they left it there- we will now remove it so as to not to cause cable confusion for future guests. As for the toilet- wish you had notified me earlier to help you out with that. In the mean time we have tried to let all faucets/shower run for a while and can not replicate a leak... Hope you have better stays... Wishing you the best.
I stayed at Taleen's apartment for three days together with a few friends and we had an awesome time!! The apartment is nice and cosy, and - best of all - fabulously close to an amazing beach. Everything we needed (a few restaurants, supermarkets, etc.) was close-by, and the garage space for our car came in very handy. All in all a very good experience!! Thanks again, Taleen!
Beautiful apartment, convenient kitchen, fun patio. And a parking spot!
IN general we were very satisfied with the apartment. It really was 50 steps to the beach and our kids loved it! Maybe the only downside was that it was rather loud because the complex is right by the main street other then that it was all good.
Would recommend the place. Taleen was very responsive and helpful in all our requests.
We were in town for a swim meet and stayed in the upper unit of the duplex and were very pleased with Taleen's home and our experience. The home was very clean and had everything we needed including everything for preparing meals and storage of our leftovers! All my questions were answered quickly and it was great to have a garage spot to park our car. The linens, towels and extra blankets were all fresh and clean. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch in the evenings to relax. It was a one minute walk to the beach to watch surfers and dolfins! We took surf lessons, walked to the Newport pier, and found great places to eat in town. Grocery stores are a five minute drive as is the laundrymat. Huntington and Laguna beach were a very short drive away and with so much to explore we would've loved another week of fun in the sun. Taleen is a wonderful host. We were met on time for check in and my texts with any questions I had were answered very promptly. Great experience! We would love to stay again.
Flat a block away from the nice beach of newport!
Pros: Excellent location very convenient to beach, with garaged parking, and across the street from a strip mall with Jack in the Box and Circle K. Good amenities in the kitchen, previous guests left us beer. Taleen was very responsive.
Cons: Balcony very dirty and probably rarely cleaned. Sitting on the benches outside will stain pants. No duvet covers for the extra blankets so a bit unsanitary if need to use them. Directions for apartment being the upstairs unit was unclear which caused unnecessary confusion and wasted time.
Dear repeat and future guests,
We assure you that cleanliness is a top priority for us. The balcony is swept and hosed down when needed. The beautiful trees just a few feet away contribute to the nature that settles on the furniture.
As for the duvet comforters that are provided as extra blankets for your comfort are washed after every use. Those who have laundry done know that this is an extra expense beyond a regular washing. We have it done regularly.
Our mildly worded review of this guest has apparently prompted the use of unnecessary words that trigger doubt about our practices. We had to have the cleaning crew stay extra to wipe every surface of the apartment, because of hand prints in high and low wall spaces and footprints ontop of side tables and couches. Additionally, the description of the unit clearly states that the unit is on the second floor.
We wish everyone happy stays- as has been our track record! It's the beach! Get out here and Chill!
Absolutely brilliant accom, perfect spot directly next door to food and shops. Genuine 10 sec walk to the beach, I would recommend to anyone and everyone. AA++
