The Best of Orange County Award

The Bluffs at Voted Among Orange County’s Best Apartment Communities – September 2011

The Bluffs in Newport Beach was named the second most popular apartment community in the The Best of Orange County: 18th Annual People's Choice, a magazine distributed by the Orange County Register.

The community finished behind The Village at Irvine Spectrum Center, also owned and developed by Irvine Company Apartment Communities.

More than 103,000 votes were cast.

The magazine cited the community's full-time events director, who plans resident events such as wine & jazz festivals, fitness boot camps, Vegas-style pool parties and "yappy-hours" for pets.

Its claim to fame: "Vilaggio Park, located in the heart of Newport Bluffs, provides residents with open, lush green space for recreational enjoyment. The guest services office offers a wide variety of outdoor equipment for residents to use in the park," the magazine reported.

The community also includes 2.5 miles of lushly landscaped walkways to guide residents through the community.
