Our moving date is coming really close, so I thought it’s a good time to tell you a little more about our new apartment. As you already know we will move to the Huntington Harbour area. Our actual new apartment has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms – exactly what we were looking for. For the past two years we lived in a 1 bedroom, which totally was fine. But we want an office space and also need a guestroom. It gets a little tiring to sleep in the living room or have someone sleeping in your living room every other month. Fellow emigrants probably understand me regarding this.
It can be hard over here to actually find a place with a good layout. If you look for two bedrooms with two bathrooms you often find the bathrooms to be only accessible from the bedrooms. That’s something we didn’t want. First, because not everyone needs to walk through our bedroom or office to use the bathroom. Second, because our cat is going to get his own bathroom and if we have visitors over it still needs to be accessible for him.
Since we are moving into one of those Resort living places again, we will be able to enjoy the following perks: a huge Swimming Pool, a nice Gym, free Yoga classes, BBQ areas, a 9 hole putting green, laundry facilities and a gated parking garage.
And to answer a question everyone is asking us: We will pay the exact same amount for the new place that we pay now: for $1700 per month you can either live in the middle of Hollywood right by the beautiful Runyon Canyon in a 1 bedroom apartment, or you can live in Huntington Harbour – a ten minute walk away from the beach – in a pretty two bedroom. We did the first for 24 months, now it’s time for a change.
OC, here we come!
