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! :)

We had stayed for the previous 3'years holiday in an apartment on the same building so knew what to expect re the pool and the location but we were not prepared for how lovely this apartment was furnished with everything we could possibly need but didn't because we were out and about so much. We were met outside the clubhouse as arranged and everything was easy from then on . There is a lovely comfy bed with a tv on the wall lounge with a massive tv on the wall which for me was too high up but this didn't matter as we only watched early morning news on bed . The location is perfect for easy access to the coast and the South Coast plaza mall . We had a wonderful time thank you

Nice apartment in beautiful community

  • 5 of 5

Communication with Peter was fast and smooth.

The apartment is in good shape and offers everything you need.

The real highlight is the beautiful community with a huge pool area and two jacuzzis. We only rarely saw other people here, independent of the time of the day.

Very close to UCI so plenty of food and shopping options.

Also very close to the SoCal beaches, Huntington Beach was our favorite.

Overall an excellent rental, we will be back. Highly recommended.

An amazing stay in Southern California

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located in a great location about 15 minutes to the beach and 30 minutes from Disneyland.

The apartment is quiet and very secure. Near by are some restaurants and supermarkets to make the stay feel more like a home away from home.

The apartment has everything that you would need to save you taking anything in your own luggage to free your space in the case for gifts/shopping for family.

Travelling with two young children we were very happy to be able to play basketball with them in the court as part of the complex due to having the balls being in the apartment. They loved the pool and in some instances the pool is yours to yourself.

A day at the beach was well equipped too there are some loungers, food cooler and even a bucket and spade!

We will be returning to this apartment the next time we visit Southern California. The owner is very quick to come back to any questions both before, during and after the stay.
