If the name Corona Del Mar means “Crown of the Sea,” then The Village is the gem set proudly in that crown. The residential streets in The Village are all named after beautiful flowers like Begonia, Dahlia, and Poppy. It’s a very active community, and residents are able to easily access everything they need.
It was originally part of Irvine Ranch, but at the beginning of the 20th Century, a stretch of oceanfront land was used to build summer cottages. The cottages filled up quickly, and their residents never left. And who could blame them for staying, with perfect weather and sweeping ocean vistas?
There is a mix of single-family homes and condos in The Village. The condos usually have a front and back unit and are nestled along quaint streets. Along Ocean Boulevard, the homes have stunning and unimpaired views of the waves crashing against honeyed sand. No matter where you choose to live in The Village, buying a home here is more than just a place to live, it’s immersing yourself in the charming and luxuriously laid-back lifestyle that comes with the address.
Life in The Village is a charmed one. It’s moments from the ocean and has plenty of parks sprinkled throughout, giving residents ample opportunity to enjoy the stunning year-round weather. This community feels like a hidden gem, an oasis tucked away from the rest of the world. However, that charming feeling is belied by the fact that there is world-class shopping and the bustling hubs of Orange County just a short drive away.
The Village is full of restaurants that encourage the slow, luxurious pace of life found here, and its proximity to Fashion Island in neighboring Newport Beach gives residents access to premium shopping in minutes.
Zinc Cafe feels like a retreat from the rest of life. With friendly staff, a relaxing atmosphere, and seasonal, handcrafted fare. At Bandera, slow-roasted rotisserie chicken takes center stage of this theatrical kitchen in the round. Their best experience is for parties of two, so this is the perfect date night spot. Experience the healthy flavors of Vietnamese & Thai cuisine at Bamboo Bistro.
Fashion Island is just up the road in Newport Beach, and it’s full of world-class shopping. The shopping center has large department store cornerstones and a mix of local stores and national brands scattered throughout its sleek and sunny complex. It’s Southern California destination shopping just minutes from the ocean.
The Village is steeped in longstanding community events that date back decades, and the neighborhoods are full of parks and trails where residents can enjoy the stunning weather year-round.
Every Saturday, Farmers’ Market takes place on the corner of Marguerite and the Pacific Coast Highway. It’s been a vital part of the community for over two decades, and it’s a hub for community and local goods. Corona Del Mar also has beautiful green spaces around every corner. Relax in neighborhood parks like Jasmine View Park or enjoy a peaceful three-mile hike through the foothills of Buck Gully Trail.
The Corona del Mar Scenic 5K has been a huge event for the past 40 years. Whether they are running or just spectating, locals come out to enjoy the camaraderie, food, and activities. Another big community event is the Corona del Mar Christmas Walk. This holiday celebration features local artists, live music, delicious food, and visits with Santa.
The Village of Corona del Mar is served by the many incredible schools, both private and part of the Newport Mesa Unified School District.
