Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at the condo in August 2009. It was clean, stylish, and a perfect location. Close to Disneyland, but not to close. It was my first time renting a condo. You will enjoy your stay.

Tropical Paradise Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

I have just arrived back home after 3 fabulous months staying at this property. The condo is located on the top floor (4th floor) overlooking the pool. It has a balcony with BBQ where you can sit and enjoy the views. The owners have the penthouse stocked with everything you could possibly need. I never once needed something that wasn't already there. The condo has a stackable washer/dryer that made life very easy.

We had a dedicated parking spot in the parking garage that was right by the elevator. There is plenty of guest parking too.

Every morning I walked the condo grounds. There is a walking path that is approx. 1/3 mile. It winds around behind the buildings is lined with palm trees and grassy areas. It is very peaceful and a great way to get your day started.

Although the Metropolitan is close to John Wayne Airport, the only noise I ever heard was from an occasional helicopter.

The Metropolitan is within 8-10 minutes to Fashion Island and Balboa Island. There is a major shopping center (Target, Starbucks, Costco, Wholefoods, Homegoods etc) just 6 minutes north of the complex.

The owners Rael and Andrea are wonderful! All of my questions during my stay were answered immediately. My deposit was returned to me the same day I departed. I highly recommend this unit and look forward to my next visit!!

Exceeded our expectations - thank you

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful apartment which was well located in southern California. The property has many amenities such as steam shower, fireplace, outside BBQ with very clear instructions / details on how to use. All in all it exceeded our expectations.

Finally, the owner was a pleasure to deal with. Super efficient, prompt with any queries or enquires that we had. This is what compelled us to write this review. (we are not review people !!) Thank you for making it a most enjoyable stay where we were there for approx 32 days.

This will be our 6th year in row coming to this beautiful oasis. We love the top floor overlooking the gorgeous pool and palm trees. Sitting on the top deck with beautiful birds and sun is the best way to spend a holiday away from snow. This condo has everything you need. Home away from home. The owner Rael is the nicest man, always willing to help and takes much pride with the upkeep of his condo. We always look forward to coming back! Jenny Pawlik Edmonton, AB Canada
