-- *PLEASE NOTE If you are looking to stay for less than one month please contact us to discuss. We anticipate that the city will issue us a short-term-rental permit in January or February at which time we can advertise and rent short-term. --

Large custom, Asian inspired, contemporary home located in Capistrano Beach. This home sits directly on the sand along a private beach, in the security patrolled, gated community of Capistrano Bay. The location and views are phenomenal.

At 5200 sq ft this home is perfect for families or that much needed romantic getaway for two. With the soaring ceilings, open living areas and phenomenal views, this home is the perfect vacation home for 2 or 14.

Each of the 5 bedrooms has its own private bathroom with an additional 1/2 bath on the living level and a 1/2 bath outside for the beach goers.

Capistrano Beach is located 1/2 way between San Diego and Los Angeles just off the 5 Freeway. We are within 60 to 80 minutes drive to most 'want to see' sights in Orange County, San Diego and Los Angeles.

If driving isn't what you want to do on your vacation, within a 1/2 mile walk there are 4 restaurants (Mexican, BBQ, Sushi and Italian) and a sports bar with outside seating. Also within walking distance is a public basketball court and a seasonal rental stand for various beach equipment rentals (boogie boards, etc.).

This home is a true luxury property and very RARE among beach rentals. Our home gives you the privacy and comforts of a 5 star resort but the convenience of your own home. Come and experience a beach rental property like no other--we cater to the discriminating guest!

Best Vacation for our Family - Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a work of art. The layout is perfect for a large family. You never feel crowded or on top of each other. This home is meticulously maintained, furnished and stocked with every imaginable kitchen tool. The master bedroom is our favorite room. The carpet is thick and luxurious. The bed is wonderful and the view spectacular. Our family loves the beach and the waves which are right outside the huge sliding doors. We are close to a basketball court and beautiful beach walks. We have been to other vacation houses and on cruises. But for our family of 15 there is a unanimous consensus that this is the best vacation place ever.

Wonderful, Amazing, Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Grandparents, siblings, and grandchildren helped my wife and I celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in this perfect setting. For 10 adults and 4 children, everyone had their own comfortable space and we all felt "at home". The location is perfect as you see, hear, and smell the ocean's crashing waves from the upstairs master bedroom and balcony patio - then you can go downstairs and step right onto the sand. This house is the ideal place for your vacation. The owner is so warm and welcoming, it only adds to the incredible experience.

Three generations enjoyed this home

  • 5 of 5

Whoever you are, wherever you are:

No need to look further. This is THE vacation home for you and yours. Descriptive photos and words fail to capture this home’s well-appointed ambience or the exquisite beachfront location. The home is visually stunning, complete with an artwork filled luxurious interior, a beautifully landscaped exterior and definitely designed for entertaining. The architectural layout is beyond genius. Equally important, it is truly a “home”, a welcoming and comfy home with gracious hosts. Go. Enjoy. Create lasting memories.

Perfect Staycation for our family!

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four living just 10 miles inland we wanted to leave the heat behind this August and hang out at the beach for a week. The Capistrano Beach house was beyond beautiful and exceeded our expectations. In no way did i feel like I was staying at a usual "beach rental". The house is so warm and comfortable that I felt like I was "borrowing" my best friend's home while THEY were on vacation! We thoroughly enjoyed our week and have already decided to book again for next summer.

*Added bonus* The master bedroom sheets are SO luxurious and incredibly soft that I peeked to find out who the maker was and ordered them online while I was there and was quite pleased to have them on my doorstep when I got back home!

5 Star Stay

  • 5 of 5

I almost hesitate in writing how much we enjoyed this beach home as I fear once the secret is out we will not be able to find available time in the future!

I live only a couple of miles from this home, but enjoy having our family reunion right on the sand. I have stayed in the nicest resorts in Hawaii, and have a beautiful home in San Clemente. This home could not be any nicer!

The architecture is the finest I have seen for a beach home really putting the beach right in the living room. We have stayed in several nice beach homes on Beach Rd. none come close to the ambiance of this home.

We had 20 tickets to Knott's Berry farm that went unused because not one person wanted to leave this home and the great open areas it gives you to eat, play games, talk and just enjoy the ocean.

I am in the ocean several times a week as a surfer and I still can not get over how serene this home is and the beautiful landscaping, art and views of the home.

We are thinking of coming back in 5 months for Christmas! If you are wondering if it is worth it, let me tell you with out reservation, IT IS!

UltraLuxury Home literally ON the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This home is just fantastic! We needed a fun "home base" between Disneyland and LegoLand for a family reunion and this luxury retreat was perfect. It is very spacious, able to accommodate our whole extended family of 16 and the oversized commercial kitchen made meal prep and eating a snap. The whole home has glass fronting the water so views are incredible from the front master suite and the living room, which flows right out onto the deck, BBQ, hot-tub and ocean. I can't say enough great things about this home and the owners willingness to make our stay wonderful.

About Vicki Bird

With our children not wanting to sell the home we have elected to offer it for rent. The home is a spectacular 5200 Sq Ft custom contemporary home that is like nothing else offered in the Capistrano Beach community. The home is family managed, which is a benefit to you as a guest because we are available 24/7 should any problems arise (hopefully NOT). We take cleanliness a step beyond with laundering of all blankets, duvet covers and area rugs between guests. In addition the Whirlpool tub, Sauna and Steam room are disinfected between quests as well. Bottom line is we take pride in our rental home as it was once our family home.

Vicki Bird purchased this house in 1993

Why Vicki Bird chose Capistrano Beach

We choose Capistrano Beach because of its simple, casual lifestyle and unique beauty. It is freeway close to everything, yet when you get home to the beach it is as if you are in a different world.

What makes this house unique

Experiencing the exhilarating feeling of opening the huge balcony door and hearing the ocean waves and smelling the clean, salt air. There is nothing like being right on the sand--nothing!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We needed a very special beach house for a very special occasion. This spectacular beach home was my dream. You know immediately once you walk inside the front door and step past the Koi pond, glance at the architecture, marvel over the interior furnishing and designer decor, and gaze beyond the large glass doors in the living room onto the spectacular white water views of the sparkling ocean and long stretches of sand that this is no ordinary beach home. The appointments and attention to details create a luxury experience like no other. This home is appointed with a warm inviting living room, five spacious bedrooms each with its own spa like bathroom. The chefs kitchen is fully stocked with all that you will need with high end appliances, commercial stove and ovens, warming drawers and a large wine refrigerator. The master bedroom with an ocean view balcony, large sitting area, fireplace, and a closet beyond your imagination. You will wrap yourself in the thick soft towel from the heated towel rack after stepping out of either the sauna, steam room, large jacuzzi tub or spacious multi-head shower. At the end of the day the luxurious beddings pillows and sheets will make you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. The blue skis were filled with Pelican and shorebird soaring overhead. The sunrise and sunsets are breathtaking. We were visited by dolphins every day during our stay. This home is ocean front and situation right on the beach. It has a rare grassy lawn and manicure gardens that takes you out to the sand where you can spend a quiet day soaking up the sun on the beach or walk along the quite shore collecting treasures in this private gated community. Our stay here was a dream come true. I only wished we would have stayed longer. We plan to come back again to recreate our memorable vacation at this truly magnificent Capistrano Beach home.
