About Mary Christensen

Andy is a geophysicist, Mary a group travel representative. Both are retired. We have retired to St. George, Utah from where I manage the rentals. However our son and daughter live near the house and are available at all times for local requests.

Mary Christensen purchased this house in 2000

Why Mary Christensen chose Huntington Beach

We loved the safe, quiet, convenient residential location, close to both schools and church. The house is close enough to the beach for quick fun, and yet far enough away to avoid the cold beach evenings, making good use of the pool. There is a good choice of nearby shopping centers, such as Bella Terra (Huntington Center), South Coast Plaza (Cost Mesa), Fashion Island (Newport Beach)

as well as numerous large grocery centers with adjacent small shops.

What makes this house unique

Unlimited free telephone usage to entire USA and European countries.

Everything we were hoping for...and more!!

  • 5 of 5

When I first discovered this vacation home online, I was a little sounded wonderful, but then again, it was an advertisement. Most of the time photo ads give you the perfect scenario but seldom live it to your expectations. After talking this over with my wife and 2 teenage sons, we decided to give it a chance. The owners were very courteous and professional, which gave me more confidence in this endeavor before we arrived. We all loved the idea of our own private pool and whirlpool in a private back yard, but I was concerned about how clean these facilities would be. Our stay was for the first week in August, '08. We arrived to find the entire house including the pool facilities clean, orderly, with all amenties a family would need. We were VERY impressed, since the description of the property matched expectations...and then some. We found the house very spacious and very livable. The surrounding neighborhood was quiet clean and safe. We thought the location was perfect, since it was an 8-10 minute drive to the beach...and with quick access to major freeways to travel north or south. Over all this property did not feel like a "vacation" home, it felt like we were staying at a friends home while they were away!

I would highly recommend this to families, to tourists, to anyone who wants a "step up" from any hotel you will find.

My family liked it so much, we've already booked a week to stay here this summer once again!!

I had never rented a vacation home before, and had no idea what to expect when we entered the house that would be our home for the next two weeks. We felt at home from the minute that we entered our vacation get away. The inside was immaculate and well stocked with towels, pillows, blankets, dishes, pots, pans and everything that we needed. Each room was decorated to enhance the time spent there, and there was lots of room for company. I loved the master bedroom on the main floor with its king size bed and private bathroom. My daughter, husband and 2 children used the bedrooms upstairs, where they also had a private bath. In the second bedroom was a day bed with trundle, a piano and bookcases filled with toys that my 3 and 6 year old grandchildren loved. The kitchen ended up being the favorite area of the adults, and the kids loved the pool with its hot tub. We were able to get up in the morning and meet in the kitchen for breakfast and talk about our plans for the day while the kids ate breakfast at the island. We stocked the pantry and refrigerator with food, and always had everything that we needed for supper after a long day of enjoying the area. I know that we saved money by not needing to eat 3 meals in a restaurant, plus my daughter loved using the kitchen.

I now know that renting a vacation home is the best option for any vacation of a week or more, and next time that we return to Southern California, this is the house that we want.

We throughly enjoyed our stay at this very nice rental house. Lot's of room for everyone. The kitchen was not only beautiful, but included everything we needed to cook large meals.

The pool, spa and BBQ fit our needs perfectly. Plenty of instructions on how things work. I would recommend it for those with a large groups. Great location and close to the freeway.

We will definitely be back!

At first I was a bit nervous. You are never quite sure when renting a vacation home sight unseen. But the owners were great from start to finish and this beautiful home was everything we had hoped for.

Located in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood, the home is close to restaurants, shops, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Disneyland and other attractions.

We love Huntington Beach and have vacationed here many times usually staying at the Hilton or Hyatt. But when we visit again, this is where we most definitely want to stay.

The home was clean, roomy and beautifully furnished. Great kitchen with everything you need and the bedrooms were good size with all the amenities. The pool and spa, was the perfect end to a day at the beach, theme park or just browsing all the shops in downtown Huntington Beach or the seaside markets.

No question about it! We are coming back here again! Absolutely Loved It!

Andy & Mary. A big thank you for sharing your vacation home with us........

Brilliant Holiday - Aug 13th - 27th 2011

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Fountain Valley was ideal. The house was very clean and comfortable and spacious, and the pool was brilliant. We stayed in every other day to make full use of the pool and upgrade our tan! It was situated within easy driving distance of shops, restaurants and Newport and Huntington Beaches. Disneyland was also easy to get to, and it was nice to get back to the house to relax and swim when we had a hectic day out! Our teenagers liked their own rooms to chill out with their computers(!) while we just hung out on the patio. We all loved the house and would definitely like to stay there again, it was like home from home - but more glamorous!
