We enjoyed every minute of our stay, whether at the house (fabulous pool, hot tub & patio with awesome views) or visiting Dana Point restaurants, boat tours and the gorgeous Mission at San Juan Capistrano. The house is very well appointed and we enjoyed Breakfasts and Happy Hours (with an awesome view) each day, and cooked Dinners at home several times as well (great grill area in addition to nice kitchen.) We also made a day trip to the beautiful San Diego Zoo which was fun experience.
The gated community is very peaceful and lovely - much blooming during our visit in April.
And special thanks to delightful and patient Mary who met us and gave us orientation tour of her house and facilities and how to operate pool, hot tub, TVs, wi-fi, curtains, etc etc (and who has very organized notes to all that and activities, etc in a notebook to which we could refer.) Our family group has ages 14 to 72 yrs and all were happy with the outstanding pool and patio, kitchen amenities, living and sleeping areas with TVs, etc. We could be together or in our own spaces as desired. The week flew by all too quickly!
Spent a wonderful family vacation at Mary’s property. She was very accommodating and friendly. The property was absolutely beautiful and well maintained. Felt like home and in a great neighborhood. Everything was top-notch. We can’t wait to visit again soon for our next vacation.
This property lives up to the excellent reviews and pictures on the website. The view from the pool deck is fantastic from sunrise to sunset. The interior of the house has so many wonderful sitting areas that you can grab your book and escape from the group, have teenagers playing ping pong and others visiting - all at the same time without feeling cramped. The house has a peaceful, happy feel - light and bright. Great access to I-5 (3 minutes) but you can't see or hear the highway. The few questions we had were immediately answered by Mary. The Strands beach was wonderful too, if you are looking for a nice beach. We would absolutely return to this house.
There are so many wonderful aspects of this home, which is why we are returning customers. The outside pool and hot tub are perfect for daytime relaxation and the pool/ping pong table kept the kiddos entertained through the evening. This house and location has something to offer for everyone. We spent many days just simply relaxing at the property, but were close enough to the beaches, shopping, and dinning to get out for a while. Our family had an amazing time and we recommend this property to all vacationers. We will definitely be back again!
We had a wonderful time as this is an impeccable place. The infinity pool and the ocean view is magnificent. Mary is quite professional. The house was super clean with a welcome basket. It is close to I-5 which makes it convenient. Deposit was returned immediately.
WE strongly recommend this villa to all vacationers.
Our group consisted of four couples from the midwest who traveled to California for a wedding. After much research, we finally decided to go with the home in San Juan Capistrano. We were far from disappointed. From the get-go, Mary was very accommodating and easy to work with. She made the rental process painless by reminding us of the scheduled payments, answering all our questions and giving us suggestions of what to do while we were in the area.
As for the home itself, it's absolutely enormous and very beautiful. It's unbelievably well-stocked, especially in the kitchen. Mary even provided us with a welcome basket including snacks and wine. At no time did the eight of us ever feel that we were crowded or lacking of private space. And because of that, we didn't want to leave. We were so comfortable drinking our coffee outside on the patio in the morning and swimming in the afternoon, we were reluctant to venture out. When we did, however, we had quick access to Dana Point, Laguna Beach and various other beaches and sights. All of us left feeling very fortunate that we had the opportunity to stay where we did and would highly recommend this property to other vacationers.
