Irvine Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Condo-Townhouse - 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 3 Baths - (Sleeps 4-8

Welcome to your vacation home!

'Peace and quiet and open air', as the song goes, truly describe both this elegant condo-townhouse and the trendy neighborhood.

Your townhouse was built in 2005 and ready for occupancy in 2006. Since then, it has been rarely used by the pretty owner who has three other homes. The house is fully furnished with brand new furniture from Pottery Barn and Ethan Allen. The owner herself is meticulous about cleanliness and high quality materials. You would find everything in the house catering to your own discriminating taste as well. The owner is confident that you will experience the same serenity and comfort in this lovely and cozy shangri-la, which is her own occasional sanctuary from her busy schedules.

Superb Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I stayed at serenity with my 20 month old son. The condo was beautifully decorated with gorgeous hard wood floors and spacious bedrooms and baths. The family room was large and inviting and a perfect place to watch movies after a long day at Disneyland or the beach. Serenity is centrally located in Irvine right off the 405 and we found travel to all of our favorite spots quick and convenient. My father enjoyed morning walks to the grocery store for the newspaper and my son loved the playground and swimming pool, all within walking distance. A big plus was a garage space to keep our car cool during the heat of the summer. Espy was quick to respond to all inquiries and was incredibly accomodating. We would highly recommend the property to any interested tenants and look forward to using it as our winter get away in the years to come.

Great Property and Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 people stay at Serenity and were very happy with the accommodations and the area. The three full bathrooms made it really easy for everyone and the owner provided plenty of towels, bedding and necessities. Espy was very proactive in making sure everything was in place when we arrived and the greenbelt in front of the house and the park directly next door was great. The community pool and exercise room were a great plus and the preserve and park trails were great for a quick walk. Only 15 minutes from the beaches was really convenient, we would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with a rental by owner and I was very impressed, so much better than staying in a room in a hotel. This home was clean and well stocked with everything we needed for a comfortable stay including plenty of towels, toiletries and tons of dishes in the kitchen. I don't believe there is anything that could have made our stay any better than it was.

Great home in great location!

  • 5 of 5

First off, I must say the owner (Espy) is great. She was immediately available and responsive for any questions we had of the property. In summary: My family of 7 stayed in this home comfortably 2 bedrooms , 2 full bath upstairs, 1 bedroom, 1 bath off main floor/kitchen. Very spacious with a great walkout balcony. Decor is very modern with a large dining area.

Pros: LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!, wifi, TV, community pool, BBQ which we used, park about 200 ft down walkway.

Cons: That we didn't stay longer!

We love this property. It was a great first rental and was everything we needed for a week stay in California. Buy food and your set!!

Definitely recommend this home and will try to stay again in the future.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at Serenity. Our 3 young kids enjoyed the big green space in front of the house and the park that is connected. We will certainly stay there again.

Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

This was much better than staying at a hotel. The owner provides very good quality items including everything you need in the kitchen to cook a full meal. The unit does have a car garage but we chose to park on the street instead as we had a large SUV. The beds are comfy and the comforters/sheets are nice quality. We will definitely book again.
