Convenience, Comfort and Kermit

I don’t ask for much when it comes to living spaces, just a place that’s clean and safe. So, boy, did my eyes widen the first time I saw Main Street Village luxury apartments.

This place is beyond clean, it’s a green building that qualifies for LEED-NCv2.2 certification. Here’s what that means and how Main Street Village went about earning the certification. This community is also beautiful, lush greenery and gardens everywhere you look.

Main Street Village is also safe, featuring private parking with controlled entry access and secured bike storage.

But there’s so much more here that makes life convenient and comfortable. A 24-hour fitness center so I don’t have to pay for a separate gym membership. Three pools, and junior Olympic size pool for exercising, a saltwater resort-style pool for lounging and a wading pool for cooling off. There are areas for hanging out, for holding meetings, for simply having fun. Entertain in the clubhouse gourmet kitchen, rent the private theatre room for a girl’s night at the movies or sit out by the fire on a nice evening. We have so many of those to enjoy here in Irvine.

Now I know to expect more when it comes to apartment living. Gone are the days of small spaces and sparse amenities. Main Street Village has everything I need to work and play, even things I never knew I needed before. And I’m proud to live in a place committed to being good to the environment. Like Kermit the Frog once said, “It isn’t easy being green.”

I’ll admit, I drive an electric car. And I’m big into sustainability. I use LED bulbs, too.

So to find luxury apartments for rent in Irvine, CA, like Main Street Village, centered on environmentally conscious construction and community? I was sold. There’s LEV/FEV parking for my car, there’s low usage faucets, and there are energy efficient lighting and appliances throughout the entire complex.

But even with the thoughtful design of the complex, it’s still utterly luxurious, from the poolside cabanas and the stunning pool, to the barbecue pit perfectly situated for a lazy summer cookout with friends. There’s even a state-of-the-art fitness center on-site, where I can drift from my intense cardio workout to unwinding my muscles in the gorgeous Jacuzzi. And honestly, the fitness center is the best out of any luxury apartment complex I’ve ever lived – whether Irvine or Houston. It’s that good.

Main Street Village is also close to a pretty jog along the San Diego Creek, where it crosses the apartment community’s namesake, Main Street. It’s also an easy place to navigate a bicycle, and MSV has ample parking and storage for bicycles. When I’m not on the elliptical it the fitness center, or jogging on the street, you will absolutely find me on the San Diego Creek bicycle path.

I want my home to feel like an oasis. And the luxury apartments for rent in Irvine, CA at Main Street Village offer the best of both worlds: a way to live conscientiously and healthfully, but still experience the trappings of luxury and beauty.

Food is the way to my heart

So, now that the manly “holiday” is behind us, it’s time to think romantically. It’s time to think about Valentine’s Day. If you are a good cook, this is a piece of cake. Just invite your loved one over to your Main Street Village luxury apartment in Irvine for a romantic candlelight dinner and a bottle of champagne or wine and your set. If you are like me and are challenged in the kitchen, then perhaps finding a fine dining restaurant is a better idea.

Less than two miles away is Bistango, a new American cuisine restaurant in the Atrium Building. Ambiance is important to them and they feature revolving modern art exhibits and live music nightly. With over 400 varieties of wine, you are sure to find something you like with your steak, duck, lobster or other entrée. After dinner, stay and enjoy the band and dance with your sweetie. What is more romantic than dinner and dancing?

Even closer to home, just across the street is Andrei’s Conscious Cuisine & Cocktails. They have a Valentine’s Day three course dinner and wine and cocktail pairing options. This dinner even includes muffins for breakfast the next day. Main course choices are lamb, lobster tail, filet mignon, duck, scallops and vegetarian polenta. Cocktails are made with natural fruits, herbs and house-made mixes.

Remember, reservations for Valentine’s Day need to be made early, tables book fast. If you can’t find a reservation, hopefully your significant other knows his/her way around your kitchen at Main Street Village if you don’t.

Super Bowl, wings and beer oh my!

The next reason to celebrate and the most watched television event of the year is coming up. Do you have plans yet? If you haven’t been able to snag tickets you can either have people over to your apartment at Main Street Village in Irvine, Ca, or you can go out to a sports bar. There are a few close by.

A nice go-to national chain and less than five miles away is Buffalo Wild Wings. They have over 30 flat screen televisions to view the big game. Wings are served with or without bones and you can pick from 16 sauces and five seasonings. Burgers, sandwiches, chicken tenders and kids items are also on the menu. This month their featured draft beer is Samuel Adams Rebel IPA.

Less than seven miles away is Yard House. They have several local beers such as Green Flash Tangerine Soul Style from San Diego, Bottle Logic Recursion IPA from Anaheim, Coronado Sand Side IPA and Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout from Petaluma. Although, I don’t think I would try beer mixed with coffee. These are just some of the beers they offer which is more than 100 on tap. Menu items range from pizzas to raw Ahi and pasta and enchiladas in between.

So, whether you pick a sports bar, or call some friends and grab some suds and grub and stay in to view the game in your living room at Main Street Village, I’m sure either option will be enjoyable.

Stone Cold Lock

The beauty on display in Irvine, California is part of what keeps us here. From the natural, to the fantastic architecture, to the people themselves, the aesthetics here are attractive. And the luxury apartments for rent at Main Street Village are no exception.

The amenities around the facility are great, and worthy of mention at every opportunity. The public garden, the electric car stalls and the bicycle parking … all things that show what the green living commitment at this complex is all about.

But my favorite aspects of my home come in the apartment itself. And while the features around my unit are numerous, my biggest feelings of comfort and satisfaction center on the kitchen, where granite countertops and stone flooring combine to provide beauty and functionality.

Some people don’t spend much time in the kitchen, and that’s okay. I do. So when I head over to Mother’s Market and Kitchen for some fresh, delicious ingredients to put together a nice, Italian dinner, I know that a worthwhile kitchen is waiting for me when I get home.

I mean, nothing repels tomato sauce quite like polished stone. And that’s not even taking into account prep work. Let’s just say I have little reservation about cutting anything on these fabulous counters.

So the question is, does Main Street Village make sense for people looking for luxury apartments for rent in Irvine, California? My answer is quick and simple: These apartments are stone cold locks (whether you use the kitchen granite or not).

The Green Is Everywhere

Main Street Village in Irvine, California takes being green seriously. Other luxury apartments for rent might do some small percentage of what Main Street does, but I find it hard to believe that any other complex could match mine where it comes to putting their money where their mouth is.

Let’s be real, the amenities within the apartments are great in and of themselves. Water reducing faucets, high efficiency toilets, energy saving appliances, low VOC paint and more assure residents that their individual units will be environment friendly. To many of us, that matters.

But Main Street goes further. The expansive community garden area is unique among apartment complexes. The ability to park and charge electric cars is of course appreciated (and for some of us, necessary). But the vast amount of bicycle parking is what really gets me going.

It seems like a small thing, right? But as most other bike owners know, finding a place to park our bikes can be a tremendous hassle. Heck, just finding a proper repair shop is hard — fortunately, I have a good one in Chuck’s Bike Shop. But it’s the message here that matters. Yeah, if someone doesn’t provide bike parking, it’s annoying, but more to me, it says they just don’t know or care. And really, it’s the latter, not the former, because if you bring it up, you get push back.

Every time.

So when a special place like Main Street Village does what’s right, they deserve special praise. Irvine, California is a beautiful place to live, and our decision to live a green lifestyle keeps it beautiful. Luxury apartments for rent don’t always get that. But we do. And we’re better off for it.

Farm to Table

The best thing about my luxury apartment for rent in Irvine? The kitchen. The granite countertops. The energy efficient appliances? Swoon.

But the best way to maximize that gorgeous space? With local produce and proteins from Orange County’s thriving farmers’ markets. Every Tuesday, until 1:00 p.m., the OCFB Sponsored Certified Farmers’ Markets take up residence in Irvine Regional Park. You can find southern California’s freshest food to take home to stock your kitchen.

But for those sweet cravings, I’m partial to Manassero Farms. When their Irvine market is open for the season, at the corner of Jeffrey and Walnut, I’ll sweep in and buy jars of jams and marinades – and I’ll always leave with their famous strawberries.

(And when I don’t have time to make it to one of their farmers’ market locations, it’s handy that the Whole Foods near me – the Tustin Jamboree store – stocks their produce. I’m also really, really excited that Whole Foods is opening a store in March in Irvine, too.)

And of course, there’s southern California’s own Sprouts, a chain of locavore-oriented grocery stores that boasts an entire, glorious aisle of 30 different varieties of fresh drum-roasted coffees. Sprouts offers one of the most competitive price points in Orange County, with bulk grains and nuts that help me stay on budget when I’m trying to shop healthy and organic.

Southern California is full of stunning vistas and healthy spaces. Main Street Village offers both in its gorgeous luxury apartments for rent in Irvine.

But if you don’t believe me, take a tour, and check out that amazing kitchen.

Anteaters and Pho

When I moved to Orange County at the start of the spring semester to take a research job at the University of California, Irvine, I immediately went in search of a luxury apartment for rent in Irvine that was environmentally sustainable AND near my creature comfort, pho.

To my immense pleasure, I found both in Main Street Village, a luxury apartment community that is LEED-NCv2.2 (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for New Construction) certified. Living in luxury doesn’t mean I have to be a conspicuous consumer, right? I particularly love the community garden and the LEV/FEV parking for my incredibly fuel-efficient Prius hybrid.

Main Street Village is only 3 miles from my campus office, and it’s located near my bank, the John Wayne Airport and the 5, 405 and 55 freeways.

But I might be more excited about the oddly-situated BB Pho Jamboree, which is tucked into a food court a mile and a half from the thoughtful luxury of Main Street Village. Their bahn mi is excellent, but their pho is incredible – and their BBQ pork bowl made me feel like I was back home on the gulf coast. (Pro-tip: you can place your order online and pick it up on your way home.)

I work long hours, but feel grateful for the amenities that make Main Street Village feel like home – and let’s be honest, the proximity to the perfect bowl of pho. Looking for a luxury apartment to rent in Irvine? Look no further than Main Street Village.
