How the Community Has Evolved: More and more young families are moving into the area especially because of the excellence of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District



Community Features/Amenities/Special Events: Hammock Garden, a community heated pool and spa, barbecue, putting greens and Zen gardens are among Ziani’s special amenities. The community won awards for its landscape and architectural design. The pool is a wonderful tranquil place to spend summer afternoons and evenings. We have had several parties in the community clubhouse (private parties), as well. The neighborhood is located near Newport Coast Shopping Center, the California State Wilderness Park and the Newport Coast View Park. There are several parks in walking distance from the development.


Why You Love Living Here: There is definitely a community atmosphere in Ziani.  People walk their dog and you can see kids playing throughout the neighborhood. The landscaping is some of the best in Newport Coast condo developments.
