The Park Newport is a beautiful place in a great location, stunning views and big choice of units. Everything is great apart from the fact that the current management is awful.
Our particular hallway has no ventilation, and the management allows tenants to smoke and litter on stairwells. There are cigarette butts that were not picked up in several days, which creates unpleasant smell, not mentioning it's gross. The apartment doors have gaps, so the hallways smells drift inside the apartments. The easy fix would be to create a small opening to the outside to let some breeze in. That is how it was when we signed the lease 3 months ago: the stairwell door facing the bay used to be propped open, and fresh air naturally took care of all smells. However, for some silly excuse, the administration recently ordered to keep all hallway openings completely shut, so now we have to smell all the odors from smoking, cooking, trash, etc. drifting into our apartment. Had we known how bad the management is, we would think twice before moving in here, despite the wonderful location and apartment.
Second, the bathroom exhaust fans. They are simply too old, too dusty, and, as a result, too loud. I assume, the current administration never thought about cleaning or replacing them. Of course, they do not live here themselves, so why should they care.
3) Do not expect to get the copy of your lease agreement. We were asking for it for two months until they finally found a few minutes to make a simple (not even certified) copy of our lease contract.
To sum up, we love almost everything about our apartment. We are happy with location, with the apartment itself, with maintenance. However, the administration is awful. They managed to screw up the best place in Newport Beach! We would love to stay here if the current management was fired and replaced with people who think and care.
Looks great the only drawback was no air conditioning
Wonderful place only draw back no air conditioning
