Absolutely do not rent! I vacated and received no monies from my deposit - rather a billing charging me for re-carpeting due to urine stains. I had no pets and assuredly had/have control over my bodily fluids. I was advised a… Full Review ▶

Nice apartment complex with spectacular views of Balboa Island, the harbor and the Pacific. Please make sure that you document every single conversation you have with the leasing office with the name, date, time and notes regarding the discussion. Especially when… Full Review ▶

Talk about going the extra mile, I had a question about whether an apartment was on the top or lower level, and Fred said he would go look, just to be sure! He did probably take one of the golf carts… Full Review ▶

This is a good apartment complex- I was weary based on some of the questionable reviews, but I am very happy with our decision. No, it's not perfect and brand new, but it's a rental property- what do you expect? Overall,… Full Review ▶

I have been a tenant at Promontory for almost two years. Even though the apartment was built many years ago, the management maintained well. Staffs and residents are friendly. Grounds are clean. Location is very good with lots of support facilities.Interior… Full Review ▶

Ok. So I had to check out to see if all of what these reviews are saying is true. I understand about regrets when you know up front about something, so bad reviews are very helpful to me. Call me a… Full Review ▶

The buildings are infested with ants and cockroaches. The staff is complacent to it, they offer to spray on a weekly basis, but that just drives the bugs from one apartment into another and they come back. In our first month… Full Review ▶

A MISTAKE. IT LOOKED SO BEAUTIFUL AT FIRST. LOOKING OUT THE WINDOWS. BUT THAT'S IT. THE REST IS VERY CRAPPY. THEY SAY THAT THEY'RE REMODELED, BUT THAT'S NOT REALLY ACCURATE. THEY WERE ONLY PARTIALLY RE-MODELED. HIDEOUS CEILINGS. WALLS ARE UGLY AND… Full Review ▶

The location is beautiful and the staff are friendly, but that does not make up for many of the other issues. 1) It is cool to live in the 70's. The apartments are outdated. The appliances are old, broken, etc. The… Full Review ▶

They team presents the lifestyle at Promontory as a desired one. While the location is nice and the ammenities are above average, the service is horrible. Try dealing with an issue once they have you signed up. They are unresponsive and… Full Review ▶

Promontory Point Apartments are in a killer location - great views. However the apartments are old, run down and poorly maintained. Many of the electrical outlets did not work or only worked occasionally. Appliances are old and rusty. Mold and mildew… Full Review ▶

The staff only cares about new tenets & lease renewals. They don't return phone calls & the gym is in a constant state of disrepair despite several requests to fix things. They promised me 2 carpet cleanings when I renewd my… Full Review ▶

When I first moved to promontory, I had read a lot of diverse reviews- but i took a chance anyway because I really liked the management staff that moved to promontory from the melograno apts. Well- they left and the new… Full Review ▶

The walls are very thin - you hear everything your neighbor says (everything). It is like they are living with you. The maintenance is terrible - they never finish anything and never get back to you - it could take a… Full Review ▶

I love living here. It doesn't feel like you are in an apartment, it truly is resort style living, and the location is perfect. The prices are very high, but the reason is the spectacular view. The trees and the tropical… Full Review ▶

Promontory is a nice place to live. Maintenance was efficient and polite. The people in the office are terrific and always seem to have a smile or take that extra moment. On the bad side, the airport traffic at 7 am… Full Review ▶

Newport Beach is one of the best places in OC to live. It has the right mix for a young, single, corporate executive, involved in community and recreational activities. Promontory Point is one of the better IAC properties within the Newport… Full Review ▶

Read all that's on the board and thought I should add my comments.
The management in the past has been arrogant, ignored residents' requests and maintenance does just patch things.
New management team - lets see what improves.
Noisy, yes they are upgrading,… Full Review ▶

The management staff is incompetent, arrogant and they lie - so buyer beware! Mold is rampid - almost every apartment is infected. Mold, mice and sewer odors from aging pipes. Everyone we know is just as disguisted with Promontory. Shame on… Full Review ▶
