Walk into this home and be prepared to be amazed! Located on a private cul-de-sac, perfect for bike riding, playing basketball, kick the can or skate boarding, this private residence has it all. Close to all major attractions in Southern California where the weather is ideal, and closely located to major freeways. This open, one story home with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a guest house is the perfect place for a family reunion, romantic get away or special event. Master Bedroom has a king size bed, two large mirrored closets and a private spa-like bathroom with a large curbless shower that has a seat and both rain and handheld shower heads.

Fresh eggs every morning, vegetables from the garden, fruit from the apple, orange, lemon, lime, apricot, peach, plum and avocado trees and grapes fresh off the vine (when in season). Relax in the pool or spa, or the many intimate gathering spots located throughout the parklike grounds. Have your morning coffee among the fragrant roses in the Rose Garden, enjoy your wine in the cool shaded vineyard, nap in the hammock under the fruit trees while listening to the birds, Bar-B-Que your meal poolside while the kids play on the swings and slide or spend a fun evening in the tipi around the fire telling stories!

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5
we a family of five have spend 20 days in this beautiful house . It was one of the best places we have had spend our vacation . The house inside is a cosy , convenience, and from the outside a very beautiful garden that you do want to leave along with its swimming pool and jacuzzi . The chickens were interesting to have around as it gives a nature environment . there is a great feeling of having a wide space in it where you find various sitting and relaxing areas . diffidently if we comeback to the area we will prefer to stay in this house , and I will recommend it to my friends and relatives . Beside the house community is very quite with nice neighbours that you feel as a part not a stranger or tourist even our home is 20 hours flying far . last but not least the owners Jim and Isabel were very nice and friendly persons always ready to help beside they live near the house which made it easy to reach them .

Owner's Response: Dear Ibrihim,
It was so wonderful to have you and your family stay in our home during most of the month of August. You, your wife and children were so kind and sweet....and we loved the Turkish coffee, dates and special meal you prepared...delicious! It was such a treat! We hope to see you again when you are in this area and welcome meeting your friends :) Until next time we send our warmest regards. Jim and Isabell

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5
This is not a 4 bedroom house, it has 3. Be aware that the house has no air conditioning. There are ceiling fans in each room but they do not work well. Also there is only one tv in the house and it is not in any of the bedrooms.

Owner's Response: So sorry the home was not what you were expecting. Our description clearly states that it is a three bedroom home with a guest house in the garden. The guest house is where the second Smart T.V. is located together with a printer. Most homes in our area do not have air conditioning due to the proximity to the beach and the mild weather we typically experience year round. Again we are sorry you were not completely satisfied. We do our best to describe the property as accurately as possible.

Perfect with kids

  • 5 of 5
We were three familes with one two year old kid each, who spend two lovely weeks in the house. The garden and fence around the pool were very convenient with the kids around. Isabell and Jim were very helpful.

Lovely and Magical!

  • 4 of 5
My extended family of 12 stayed for 2 nights at this lovely and magical home. The chickens, roses, guest house, pool, teepee, and swing set make the retreat perfect for children. My neices and nephews thought they had died and gone to heaven. We would have appreciated a little bit more information about where things were (in the kitchen, for instance), how to use the appliances, and what was expected for cleanup, but the house was lovely and we enjoyed it very much.

The "Enchanted Gardens" A vacation in itself!!

The "Enchanted Gardens" A vacation in itself!!
  • 5 of 5
This "Enchanted Garden" was the most memorable part of our summer vacation in California!

It was all that the website described and more. It is also strategically located within minutes from everyone in Orange County, and immediate access to the highway. However, once back in the house, there was so much to do and enjoy that we did not want to leave.
Some of the furniture required some minor repairs from wear and tear, but I trust that the owners would have addressed those by now.

We would definitely be coming back, and would recommend it to everyone with a family and an appreciation for nature and the good life.

Thank you Isabelle for making your property available for rent. It gave our family a truly unforgettable memory!

PS: Sorry we let the hens loose in the garden, but they were very friendly and generous with the eggs! ;-)

Owner's Response: It was wonderful having your family stay with us while getting out of the heat in Dubai! Nothing like the mild, beautiful Summer weather here in coastal Southern California! Glad the kids had so much fun.

We've been fortunate to be booked solid all Summer and just found out about the furniture that needs repair! As soon as our current guests check out, that will be repaired. We heard that the love seat arm ripped, so a seamstress is on call to sew it back up. Sounds like someone had a good time :)

We hope to see you and some of your friends next Summer!

Wishing you all the best,
Isabell
