AZ Member seeking SoCal help

Hey guys,

Ill be moving from Phoenix to the New Port Beach area this summer for an internship with McCarthy Building Companies. I'm not too familiar with the area as far as apartments and what not. Any help would be great for someone who is familiar with the area.

Im looking to get an apartment within 10 minutes drive from the office which is roughly Mesa Dr and the Costa Mesa freeway. Something in the less then 1500/mo range (Im a cheap college kid) and in a good neighborhood. Can be in Santa Ana or any of the neighboring cities. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Sean.

Re: AZ Member seeking SoCal help

I used to live in that area. There are plenty of inexpensive apartments on the east side of Costa Mesa (which is the better side).

I was here for several years -

Sus Casitas Apts.
2110 Newport Blvd.
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
949-548-4968

I had a Jr. one bedroom, basically a studio with a sliding door to cover the sleeping area. And a one-car garage. Rent was $900. Probably around $1000 now.

It's right next to the freeway, but the noise is not bad since the freeway is below street level. The complex was pretty quiet, not many kids in the front building. I think the back building had more families with kids.

Lots of shopping and eating places within walking distance and easy freeway access.

Checkout the apartments on the corner of Vanguard and Newport Blvd. Used to be called Newport Glen Apts and I had a great experience there except for the noisy garage doors. Now its called something different like Montage or Montego. Cant recall.

There's a large number of great apartment locations in Costa Mesa specifically. If possible, I would suggest coming out for a weekend or so to check them out before you pick one.
