|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
DOUBLE WIDE OCEAN FRONT LIVING ROOM WITH OCEAN FRONT BEDROOM. REMODELED ALL OVER. NEW KITCHEN AND BATHS, TILE FLOORS.
This was my family's third time in OC and the second time staying at the Irene, and this property was the best so far. Unlike the first Irene condo we stayed at, this property was updated, had a bigger balcony and the master bedroom was on the ocean side of the property with direct access to the balcony. This allowed us to fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean each night which was awesome! It's also nice and cleaner to have a place with flooring as oppose to carpet which made cleaning up the sand an easy, quick task. The only negative I have, which is minor, is that the TVs could use updating. With flat screens costing so little nowadays, it wouldn't hurt to upgrade the TVs (especially the one in the bedrooms which were both tiny) for those rare nights families find themselves in early for the evening. Again, this is minor as we rarely spent much time indoors except to sleep. Overall, excellent property and we would definitely stay here again!
Located in the quiet part of OC, this condo building is mainly composed of owners and a handful of owners who rent.
With that said, it was quiet, and clean and very comfortable within walking distance to grocery store and many restaurants.
If you're looking for the OC hustle and bustle, this is not your place, but if you're looking for "chill" time, the Irene is a really nice
choice. Had a few problems with the AC at first, but were taken care of in a timely manner. Overall, 4 stars.
