Excellent apartment - very well appointed and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed in Irvine for five weeks on a work visit. The apartment is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is set up perfectly for longer (or shorter) stays. We arrived after a long flight to find some of the basics already there. This made us feel very welcome.

There television and entertainment system is first rate and there is some sports equipment in the laundry cupboard.

The apartment complex itself is extremely well set up. It includes a pool, gym and movie theatre!

We had a great time in Irvine and this apartment was a big part of that.

Recent Stay at This Beautiful Complex.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at this condo in the Watermarke complex. It is a beautiful gated community with many amenities within the complex. The unit was spacious and thoroughly enjoyed the patio area off the bedroom. Although we did not utilize the kitchen for cooking (other than our morning coffee) it seemed to have all the necessities to do so. Peter was very gracious to allow us into the unit early due to our flight arrival time and was met at the complex by Tarah, the property manager, to let us in. There are many restaurants within walking distance. We did not rent a car but utilized Uber for transportation to South Coast Plaza, Fashion Island and other surrounding areas that were too far to walk. We will definitely return to this condo in the future. It certainly was our home away from home.

Very comfortable and safe!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are from Southern California and needed a place to stay for a few weeks while visiting kids and grandkids. We found this condo and booked it. We are very glad we did. Super great location, well-stocked kitchen, bigger than average bathroom, and a very comfortable bed. One night I had my grandkids over so I pulled out the sofa sleeper and it worked out great! Plenty of room to walk around in the living room even when the bed is out. Thank you Peter and Tarah for being such wonderful hosts!

It was a nice property

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was spacious, quiet and generally quite comfortable. The only thing that's a little bothersome was the bathroom extraction fan, seemingly choke of dust, very noisy but not really working.

My husband and two children stayed here for 9 nights recently and it was great! Peter, the owner was very kind and always got back to me right away. Watermarke is beautiful resort, very safe, huge pools that were almost always empty. The covered parking right outside the door was very convenient. Irvine is a great. We ate at so many great restaurants, EATS was my favorite and The Melting Pot, Gullivers Travels. YUM! Its close to all the major beaches. We went to Universal Studios Legoland Knottsberry Farm, Catalina Island, Newport Beach, Long Beach, The Queen Mary, Balboa Island. We had a great time. Thank you Peter for letting us use your condo. It was perfect we had everything we needed and we would definitely stay again if ever in the area! :)
