Hi all,

As the title states, I'm looking to move to an apartment in either Irvine or Newport Beach. However, most of my resources keep giving places owned by Irvine Company Apartment Communities (ie craigslist). Are there places in either city not owned by that company? If so what's the best way to find them? Thanks in advance!

I would look on forrent.com and check that way. I think there are a few in Irvine owned by Shea. I'm sure there must be some in NB not owned by them.

Good luck!

V. =)

There is a complex at E. Yale Loop and Barranca in Woodbridge that is not IAC, I believe it is owned by Shea. (Sorry can't remember the name) Also, not sure which one specifically, but I believe some of the apartment high rises on Jamboree Blvd are not IAC as they were intended to be condos, but switched to apartments when the market crashed. I'm pretty sure Calypso Apartments and Avalon Apartments by Jamboree & Alton are not IAC as are some of the ones on the beach side of the 405.

Only other option is look for rental condos from private individuals on craigslist or find a realtor who caters to that market. I know Newport has a thriving market for attached apartments (Mother in Law quarters, over garage apartments, etc) but this is mostly done by word of mouth or throught realtors.

Good Luck.

The one on Yale Loop and Barranca is called Woodbridge Meadows. The area is very nice, and I don't have any personal experience there, but another poster here didn't have a pleasant experience there at all. IIRC, the apartment they got was filthy, and management doesn't do much to address resident complaints.

There are plenty of nice apartments along Jamboree that are not Irvine Co. In addition to Calypso and Avalon, there's a Camden property on Main & Jamboree that has a similar "urban upscale" style. There's also an Equity property called Alta Court somewhere in the area. And at any given time, there are private landlords looking to rent out condos in the Watermarke community.

Thanks for the advice, I'm going to check out some of the places you guys mentioned. Also, does anyone know of a good realtor that specializes in renting apartments/condos? Thanks.

There are other apartment owners in Irvine that have nice apartments as well as some nice private rentals.

Unfortunately most corporate owned apartment complexes will only allow dogs under 30 to 50 lbs. Private rentals will be the best bet for folks with larger dogs.
