Irvine condo description

Elegant paradise close to beach and the culture of an urban city. Professionally decorated with hardwood floors, lots of artistic accents and most importantly, 1000 count Egyptian linens on heavenly beds. Cook in the well equipped gourmet kitchen, work in the office/3rd bedroom suite with WiFi, High Speed Internet and a Printer. Step outside onto the lanai that overlooks a quiet pool and jacuzzi. Three walk in closets make this the perfect executive apartment with all the amenities to make your life easy. Concierge, gym and Olympic sized pool. Just around the corner are some of the world's finest restaurants. And if diversity is what you like, we have some of the best international food in the world within a 5 mile radius. Bring the family and visit UCI, Disneyland, Newport Beach, Balboa, Los Angeles and more!


A business colleague once asked me where I would live if I could live anywhere in the world. I thought about that for a bit as I am an international business person and adventurer. I had to reply that right where this elegant apartment is located would be my first choice. It looks as though someone cleans the six lane across streets at night, the sun shines nearly every day and it almost never gets so hot that you must turn on the A.C. THIS is paradise. It is right at the edge or Irvine's urban hub and Newport Beach. It is the ultimate executive stay with lots of activities and fun for the family. If you will be here for awhile, the schools are the best! In fact, we are right down the street from UCI!

Just four miles away is Newport Beach with fabulous seafood restaurants, access to sailing, boating...the Duffy boats are great for a party or celebration...nightlife and some of the world's best beaches. During the holidays, enjoy the Newport Beach Boat Parade. Then, head to Sabatino's Italian Restaurant where the homemade sausage is mouthwatering. Or...hit the Cannery for a view of the water and some of Newport's finest seafood. Afterwards, walk the narrow streets of Newport Beach and pub crawl from one small local place to the next.

If you join us in September, visit the Taste of Newport where we rock out and pig out for three straight days! O yes...and there is wine tasting too!

Travel a bit further south and enjoy Laguna Beach where some of the world's most beautiful coastal areas have been painted and photographed by Laguna's many world renowned artists. If you visit during the Festival of the Arts (July through August), you can enjoy the Pageant of the Masters.

On many whale watching trips, one can see in the 1000s of dolphins along with a whale or two. Just yesterday, the crew at Newport Landing saw 5 whales and 1,900 dolphins....take the family out on a Duffy boat for appetizers, great wine and views of the world's finest beachfront homes.

Performing Arts are just 4 miles away at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Stop a Leatherby's for cocktails and appetizers...then off to the Symphony or a play or Broadway show.

Head north and visit surf contests, sand castle building and volleyball contests at Huntington Beach. Even further north and you can visit the quintessential Santa Monica described here by Everclear. Who knows...you too may find yourself in the surf in your suit!

                          The wonderful thing about Southern California is skiing in the morning and surfing in the afternoon is entirely possible. We are much closer to the water and beach activities, but if you have time, the local mountains have some fabulous skiing. Irvine is one of the best cities in the world for cycling. We love the ride from our place around the back bay which has incredible vistas. If you are a cross country or snow shoe lover, Mt. San Jacinto has a breathtaking tram ride to the top where you can ski and snow shoe on miles of trails.

                          If you simply like to lay out by the pool, we have three. The pool near our place is heated from February 1st to October 31st. The Jr. Olympic size pool behind the clubhouse is always heated. Each of the three pools has a jacuzzi.

                          If performing arts is your thing, the Orange County Performing Arts Center has it all from Broadway to the Symphony just 4 miles from our place.

                          Finally, Orange County has some of the finest shopping and dining in the world with Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza are 4 miles away. We do all this stuff so we are a great resource for you.

                          Why Irvine:
                          From the moment Lisa saw this property, she knew that this was a unique place. It's elegance and openness give you a feeling of five star quality. Lisa wanted to have the convenience of a great hotel with the privacy of an individual apartment. The apartment has windows spanning the kitchen and living area that overlook San Joaquin Nature Preserve and Watermarke's lovely gardens. The apartment has everything you need in a small space that feels much larger. The apartment had custom appointments from the start and Lisa added custom built in cabinetry throughout. Come and enjoy this elegant escape from life's sometimes taxing routine.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          One of Lisa's world traveling friends once asked Lisa, 'If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?' Lisa chose this location. Everything is beautiful and well maintained making life pleasurable and easy in the Irvine | Newport Beach area. The property is superbly maintained all the time. Our association is meticulous about the garden and facilities. Everything you need is just down the hall; gym, beautiful swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball court and playground.
