2 Beds are Better Than 1

My best friend Samantha and I have always lived together or near each other since our freshman year of college when we became roommates. Upon graduation Samantha moved to California for work, and I became a bit of a free spirit and tried the whole traveling thing. After a year, I decided I needed a fresh start and Sam said I should come to Irvine and we could be roommates again. After a long and grueling apartment search we found the perfect place in Main Street Village luxury apartments.

We toured a two-bedroom unit called the “Mendocino” and instantly fell in love. It was absolutely perfect. It came complete with granite counters in the kitchen and bathrooms. Yes I said bathrooms, because we both have our own for privacy. We both have spacious rooms and closets, and the elegant living room opens up into the balcony! When we first saw the unit, I told Samantha that even if we don’t get this unit, we have to stay at Main Street Village. The amount of interior amenities and community amenities was astounding.

In addition to all of the amazing amenities, Samantha and I can continue to host our friends that have also ended up in California since college. The living and dining rooms are large enough to really have a good gathering, or maybe a wine filled watch-party for our favorite shows.

After seeing the “Mendocino” at Main Street Village luxury apartments for rent in Irvine I am absolutely certain that there is no better place to live. I suggest you and your closest friend check out the 2 bedrooms that are available for rent at Main Street Village and sign a lease as soon as possible.

Old and New Traditions

The turkey has been stuffed, served and eaten. There may still be some leftovers in your energy-efficient refrigerator at Main Street Village luxury apartments in Irvine, but Thanksgiving is now over and it’s time to start decking the halls and getting into the spirit.

The newest event of the area happens December 6 when Irvine Civic Center transforms into a Winter Wonderland with a 25-foot-tall Christmas tree, holiday concert, train rides and children’s activities. The event is free, but please bring a new, unwrapped gift for kids up to age 12 for the Marine Adoption Committee Holiday Toy Drive. Santa will stop by, and it will even snow.

One of the oldest Christmas traditions is the Newport Beach Boat Parade which began in 1907. Over 200 ships, boats and water craft will all be decorated and lit up, with carolers and maybe even Santa. View the parade from the shore, or reserve a seat on a boat and be in the parade. You can cruise and see not only festive water craft, but estates along the shore as well. The parade begins on December 16 and ends December 20.

Or if you celebrate Hanukkah, check out the Golden Dreidle. This store carries Menorahs, dripless Chanukah candles, latke platters, collectible and toy dreidles, books and toys. This store is only 1.5 miles from the Main Street Village luxury apartments.

Dolphins and other whales are often spotted on these cruises as well. If you prefer to stay on land, you can try spotting one on the Balboa pier.

The newest water attraction is Jetpack America, where you can fly and hover up to 30 feet in the air with the world’s first water-powered jetpack. You can also go paddle boarding, surfing, kayaking, boogie boarding, or just swimming. There are a few schools that can teach the novices how to ride the waves by whatever means you see fit. The Balboa Fun Zone features a Ferris wheel, arcade games and a nautical museum.

With over 400 restaurants in Newport Beach, freshly caught seafood and waterfront dining are what put this town on the map. But of course there are other options like international cuisine, prime steaks, or classic American dishes. Or you can always go back to Main Street Village luxury apartments in Irvine and grill something on the BBQ.

Whale Watching

Every year there is a special season that passes, that most people miss out on. It’s not one of the four seasons that everyone experiences every year of his or her life. No, no, I am talking about the migration of the blue whales. Each year they come past California on their way to their winter habitat, and each year people go without seeing them. We here at Main Street Village luxury apartments in Irvine don’t want you to miss out, which is why we want you to know about the migration.

The annual “Giant Blue Whale Migration” brings over 500 blue whales each spring & summer to the waters near Newport Beach. Over 645 blue whales were spotted in 2014, which is a big number because giant blue whales were once considered quite rare off the coast of southern California. However, over the last seven years this has changed dramatically with hundreds/thousands of giant blue whales spotted each year. These giants of the sea reach lengths of up to 90 feet and are the largest of all animals. Along with viewing these giants, the second largest whale in the world, the finback whale has also taken to the waters of southern California during the same months as the blue whales. Other varieties of whales are also possible during this time of year. Along with whales, giant pods of common and bottlenose dolphin are also very likely to be seen. These dolphin pods come within arms reach as they play along side the whale watching ship.

This is definitely something that you don’t want to miss, and the Main Street Village luxury apartments want you to see it, as we are only 19 minutes away from the site. Don’t hesitate to go and see them, as October 31st is the last day you can view them. Once you view the whales you’ll see that it is opportune to live at such a fantastic apartment that has the inside scoop on events such as these and want to schedule a tour. We hope to see you soon.

50th Anniversary

In 1965, University of California-Irvine opened up. The prestigious university is only 8 minutes away from us here at Main Street Village luxury apartments and we felt the need to take part in the celebration and honoring of William Pereira who was the initial architect of the campus 50 years ago.

A brief bit about William Pereira is that he was an American architect famous for futuristic designs of landmark buildings, such as the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco and the Theme building at Los Angeles International Airport. He also created the master plan for the 43-year-old city of Irvine, which is considered one of the greatest master-planned cities in America. Pereira helped define the look of mid-20th Century America and he was featured on the cover of Time Magazine in September 1963. The exhibit titled “Bold and Independent: UC Irvine’s 50th Anniversary Exhibition” will be held October 9-January 17 at the Great Park Gallery, Orange County Great Park. It is a free event and is open Thursday and Friday from noon to four, and Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4pm. This is definitely something you do not want to miss especially if you are a student at UC Irvine or just a resident of beautiful Irvine, California.

We at Main Street Village luxury apartments for rent in Irvine hope that you find the time to go and check out the event, because it is truly a beautiful part of the history of our amazing city of Irvine. After checking out the event, consider scheduling a tour of our luxury apartments, because it is always good to live somewhere that is up to date on the local events in the city.

Art In Orange County

We have a love for art here at Main Street Village luxury apartments for rent in Irvine, and we should as California is home to some of the greatest artists and designers in the nation. We try and provide our residents with a fresh new lifestyle in reference to our apartments and to the surrounding community that is full of events and activities.

One such event is the exhibit that premiered October 3rd and will continue to December 12th at the University of California-Irvine, ‘A Performative Trigger: Radicals of Irvine’. This is an art gallery is open every Tuesday-Saturday from noon to 6 pm and is free to attend. The exhibit is conveniently located only 9- minutes away from the Main Street Village apartments. “A Performative Trigger: Radicals of Irvine, considers the moments – both Burden’s provocations and his student cohort’s equally contentious performance art – in the context of the larger aesthetic landscape of the Southern California art world, one that was comparatively conservative at the time.  In so doing, A Performative Trigger ponders what might constitute a resistant, radical act of art – a critical aesthetic – within contemporary art production today.

We at Main Street Village love being so close to such magnificent events, and our residents do too. Come join the family and see why Main Street Village luxury apartments are considered the premiere luxury apartments for rent in Irvine.

A Community

There are millions of apartments in the United States and all of them offer the same thing. So what sets one apartment complex apart from another? Is it the amenities they provide, the management, the location? I would argue that the thing that sets a good apartment building apart from other ones is the community that is in and the community that is formed by residents. Main Street Village in Irvine, California successfully recreates a small town feel that you don’t always get living in the city.

Main Street Village makes it’s residents feel like tight knit community and foster’s relationships with a few subtle but perfect amenities. One of those community-building amenities is the playground. While the kids play and make friends, adults have time to talk and get to know one another. What is a community where the adults don’t speak, well I’d say it isn’t a community at all. Another thing that the Main Street Village apartments contain is a community garden. The garden allows residents to interact and grow things together. They also have community and resident sponsored events that foster a sense of community between neighbors.

I have yet to find an apartment building, besides Main Street Village in Irvine, California, that cares about the resident’s sense of community. It is truly a beautiful thing, and if you would like to be apart of a community that will take care of you and that you can grow with, I suggest you schedule a tour and see if Main Street Village is for you.

Enjoying the Outdoors

I have always loved swimming, ever since I was a child. Another thing I loved was barbecuing. That wasn’t a childhood love; more like I was forced to learn, but now that I am an adult I appreciate the art form that is barbecue. If I had to choose, I’d say there is no apartment I would rather do my two favorite things at more than Main Street Village in Irvine, California.

Main Street offers an amazing Saltwater Resort Pool and a junior Olympic swimming pool that its residents can utilize. There is nothing better than hopping in one of the pools and enjoying the cool water as the sun beats down on the city. Actually, there is one thing that is better and that is making my famous steaks with my fathers’ recipe on the grill. I can invite tons of friends over and have a pool party, and while everyone swims I can enjoy the grill. In addition to being able to grill and swim, when I want to relax I can hop in the hot tub…but before hopping in the hot tub, I can start a bonfire in the fire pit and then relax in the warm tub. No matter what I want to do, I can be sure that I’m going to enjoy it.

Main Street Village offers a complete set of amenities that you can take advantage of for when you want to be outdoors. If you love swimming and barbecuing as much as I do, I recommend that you schedule a tour of Main Street Village as soon as possible.
