Great vocation condo for retired people (long term) and families (up to three months). Adults need to be 55+. Great weather all year round. Especially great for golfers. Well-appointed condo with all the comforts that you expect at home; tasteful decorations and sophisticated colors that enhance atmosphere and cheer you up; classic antique furniture, wooden shining floors covered abundantly with beautiful area rugs; convenient ground level entrance combined with a green exterior patio that offers a commanding view on higher grounds on the other side. Double-pane new windows that offer quiet retreat right in the condo; fresh air flows that circulate all around the indoor space; new air-conditioning units that cool you down whenever there is a need; beautiful quiet ceiling fans and lights in each room, dining area and living room, making air-conditioning only an occasional last resort. In winter, the condo is equipped with an energy-saving heater to keep you warm from occasional cold air at night while saving electricity costs. The living room and dining area are brightly lit with romantic unmatched sunset views. All the wall spaces are carefully designed and framed, with shapes and colors that reflect the furniture and create a harmonious stimulating ambiance.
All cooking/kitchen wares, dining plates, and cups provided. There is a 27" TV hidden in the furniture offering many cable channels (including the golf channel). One of my favorite is the classic arts channel which offers entertainment in so many different forms. No land line phone installed, but the service can be easily provided at renters’ expense. High-speed Internet service can also be provided at renters’ own expense (around $22.50 per month plus a possible re-installation fee $16 if disconnected earlier by another tenant). Close to clubhouse #4 and #1. Laundry room is a short stroll away, 50c for washing and free drying. Located between gate 5 and gate 6; parking space and guest parking most convenient. There is RV parking in the community. You can rent golf carts, drive on marked golf routes, and manage your daily affairs (shopping, doctors’ visit, eat-out, etc.) without a car. You can easily rent a car if you do need it from time to time.
This is prime location in Orange County with many beautiful beaches to stroll; hiking, boating diving and fishing activities in the most romantic beaches of California. Inside the community, there is a wildlife park along the Aliso Creek with an easy hiking trail for all ages. If you are more adventurous, there are also many hiking trails in the huge Laguna Coast Wilderness Park next to the community. Right next to it, there is also Crystal Cove State Park. No wonder the community has such fresh air. There is a convenient bus ($1 ticket) going to Laguna Beach in about 10 minutes.
There is an enjoyable 9-hole par-3 course that will get you hooked before you are ready to go to the famous 27-hole golf course. The place is most user friendly to all golf beginners. Whether you are learning or playing, come and enjoy it for a great golf vocation. The new golf clubhouse (The Village Greens) is open to all Village residents and guests and consists of 17,800 square feet of combined interior space and outdoor decking. The building has golf carts for rent, a pro shop, equipment storage, and a number of meeting rooms available for Village clubs and residents. All Village residents will have access to the new full service inexpensive restaurant and café with spacious outdoor decks and spectacular views of Orange County’s Saddleback Valley and Santa Ana Mountains.
