Ranch style setting among the rustling Eucalyptus trees. Slumber peacefully as warm winds rustle the trees and carry the soft chirp of crickets from the near-by creek. Awaken to singing songbirds and the soft neigh of horses on the trails. Just minutes from Disneyland, Angel Stadium in Anaheim and sparkling beaches like Newport and Laguna, Orange Park Acres is rural retreat in the heart of Southern California’s most visited destinations. Orange Park Acres features a unique system of almost 30 miles of recreational horse trails. It is surrounded by over 2100 acres of open space at Santiago Park and Irvine Regional Park featuring the OC Zoo, Pony Rides and Train rides...perfect for kids and horse-lovers!
This 4050 square foot 5 bedroom, 3 bath custom home sits on an acre lot surrounded by horse trails and the beautiful views of Saddleback hills. Sweeping 14’ ceilings give the Great Room an immense feel as does the handsome stacked-stone wood-burning fireplace with an adjacent library stocked full of Louis Lamour, Charles Russell and other great authors of the Western world.
An entertainers kitchen with custom cabinetry, authentic wood-burning stove (updated with gas and six burners for gourmet cooking standards), antique mounted refrigerator doors, and a large island with separate sink allows guests to help with the cooking! Look up and a vintage, hammered-tin ceiling connects the kitchen to an octagon shaped dining room with another rock fireplace and fabulous French doors that open to grass and plum trees. Gleaming double-sliders adjoin the Living Room to a large covered deck and grassy green backyard, ideal for outdoor meals and family gatherings.
Ascend the sweeping staircase to the Master Bedroom with 14’ open-beam wood ceilings, a room full of warm gleaming antique bedroom furniture, and a custom cedar-lined walk-in closet. Enjoy the custom granite fireplace and ornately carved mantel in your Victorian sitting room and take in the valley views from your private balcony. Step down into a spacious romantic bathroom complete with his and hers antique vanities, dual shower heads and an enormous Jacuzzi tub built for two.
Additional bedrooms offer sleeping for another 8-10 people. A classic children’s room with toys and twin beds (crib available) and an antique Murphy bed converts the handsome library into sleeping quarters.

Hello, I am Cristol Barrett O'Loughlin - daughter to the owners of Barrett Family Ranch (Richard Lee and Phyllis Barrett). My brother (Richard Adam), my husband (Jim) and my daughter (Chloe - 6), all pitch in to help maintain this amazing property so you may enjoy it! We hope to host you and your family at the Ranch!
Our family has enjoyed Barrett Family Ranch for several decades now. Many special events have been celebrated at the Ranch - holidays, weddings, birthdays and family get-togethers. Kids love the Ranch and you will too!
The property was built from the ground up by my father, Richard Barrett, a master craftsman specializing in antique word-work. He is also a collector of antiques, all things western, and we even have a full-sized train car on the property for your guests to explore. The Ranch is ideally located within 5-30 minutes of the following attractions:

Come visit! We would love to host you...
The house is more beautiful than the photos . Many tiny decorations are very unique and shows the owner's great love to this house. The children likes the yards very much And We love the kitchen very much. It is great we can cook chinese food after a long trip in USA.
The location is very good and it is convinient to Disney land and Los angles. Richard is very warm hearted and very helpful to us. We certainly will choose this house again for the next stay in the future.
So we rented this home because there were 10 family members traveling to CA to visit our son who is stationed at Camp Pendleton. Family members age range was 58 to 19, as soon as we walked into Richard's home it was so comfortable and welcoming everyone loved it. There is so much to see in the house it really was an experience.
Very convenient location to most attractions, went to an Angles game, universal, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Horseback riding in Norco, Seal Beach, San Diego, Wine Tasting in Temecula, San Clemente and a few other things
Having dinner at night under the twinkling lights on the deck was awesome. Richard was a perfect host and would definitely go back.
The Barrett's were perfect hosts to our teams needs during a national swim meet in Irvine.
The living space afforded the group worked out perfectly to handle a close group who was looking for group time for meals, hanging out, and sleeping spaces.
We were welcomed by the owners Richard and Phyllis who stay in a cottage in the rear of the property. This was not a problem and to speak with them was always a pleasure.
The walk through was simple and they immediately made us feel at home. There daughter handled the booking and was easy to contact and explain the ranch.
Our group ate many of our meals prepared in the kitchen and ate both inside and on the back deck. We also used the gas grill and enjoyed our unwinding time on the back deck.
Getting to Irvine for our competition was easy and we traveled to 4 different Orange county beaches during the week. We whale watched from Newport and ate on the coast a few times.
The change of pace of the Ranch was perfect after a busy day. While I was with the swimmers the parents took scenic walks close by in the beautiful equestrian community and
the abundant parks. Groceries were nearby and there were some good choice to eat out.
This amazing place had some interesting artifacts of old and I enjoyed the history of the ranch and there sharing of them.
This was an uncommon place making for a most memorable week. When many of our group thought what would be more business than pleasure the opposite entailed.
I immediately thought this would be a great family vacation with my adult siblings.
Whoever gets the upper bedroom has a bonus deck that might be great for the couple making the arrangements-Hint! The other bedrooms worked out great and the shared bathrooms never seemed to be a problem.
I would go back again especially if you are looking for a different experience on the west coast.
We had 15 family members from 16 months to 80 years stay for the week of Christmas. The Barrett family was easy to deal with and helpful in meeting our needs. The proximity to Disneyland was a plus and our grandchildren had a ball with the kid friendly play area, dress up clothes and out door play equipment. The weather cooperated enough we enjoyed lots of time on the deck and even had our Christmas Dinner outside. The grandparents LOVED the place, as western horse riders and felt very at home. Our kids named the wooden Indian "stares with intent" and had lots of fun with him in pictures!
We had a group stay for a Vineyard National Conference. The house had absolutely everything you could need. The owners are friendly and very helpful. Clean, close to stores, beach, disney world. Great stay.
My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our stay at Renegade Ranch. Our twin 6 yr old sons took full advantage of the incredible grounds, running around in the mornings looking for rabbits, and in the evenings watching horses come by right out front the gates.
The outside space was such a bonus, with lots of grass for the kids, as well as outdoor dining.
We easily made day trips to Disneyland, The Zoo, and to the amazing beaches.The owners are delightful and accommodating, and their property Manager Cristol was easy to work with.
Their home is full of warmth and charm. We had a great vacation!
