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.
We are a family group of 9 from the UK who worked our way via Las Vegas and then San Francisco and then onto this house. Having spent a very busy few days at Grand Canyon, Alcatraz, etc then in flights so we were really looking forward to relaxing at this wonderful property for a week.
The house is spacious and well presented. There was enough room for all 9 of us to do our own thing. Some stayed by the pool the entire week enjoying the sun, the pool and the views. Some of us did some relaxing but also managed to combine this with trips to LA, outlet shopping, LA Galaxy soccer, Disney, Laguna Beach, Heisler Park etc.
It is set in a peaceful location but close to I5. Grocery stores are 10 mins away and the house even has local membership cards for discounts. It is a gated community so also very safe and secure if people are unsure of the general LA area.
All in all we had a great time and Mary was very welcoming and hospitable by email. Always available if required.
Our only regret was leaving this beautiful house.
My family spent a wonderful 5 nights at Mary's house! Our family, who is spread across Canada and the U.S, wanted to find a large enough place to house all of us so we could get together to celebrate our parents 40th anniversary. The group consisted of my parents; my brother and his wife; my sister, her husband and their 18 month old daughter; and my fiancé and I. With 8 adults and 1 toddler, the house fit us so comfortably! Each couple had their own spacious room and my niece even had her own little room so we didn't have to worry about disturbing her early bedtime.
We were searching for a house that was close enough to restaurants/beaches/shops should we wish to head out (which it was) but more importantly a house that we could spend virtually all of our time together at without feeling cramped or getting bored. This house fit the bill perfectly!
Everyone agreed we immediately felt at home. There was an abundance of space for both people wanting to hang out together and people wanting to take some quiet time to nap or read.
We spent much of our time lounging in and around the pool with the gorgeous view of the ocean. We made great use of the kitchen & bbq, eating all of our meals at home. And we got a lot of use out of the pool table and ping pong table! Mary has plenty of board games as well as children's books & toys which was great for my niece! (the pack & play and high chair were in excellent condition and very useful as well)
We really liked that we could connect the music from our phones to the in-house sound system which created a great atmosphere for our whole trip.
It was truly a perfect retreat for our family - exactly what we were looking for.
I cannot express how much we enjoyed our time together at Mary's house. We all agreed we will be back again!
