Overview

Orange County Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Two Fireplaces (Sleeps 6)

Villa San Juan Capistrano is a private home with two large bedrooms and a high-end bedroom loft nestled in the rolling San Juan Hills, in a quiet gated golf course community that is surrounded by fairways and wildflowers. The area is considered to have THE BEST CLIMATE IN THE WORLD.

CONTACT US VIA E-MAIL OR PHONE RELATED TO ANY FLEXIBILITY IN THE TIME OF YOUR STAY. WE MAY BE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE YOU.

There is a link to a second webpage below between Rates & Owner's Profile further down on this page that provides a lot more photos and information about the Villa and surrounding area if you want more than this VRBO listing provides.

It is conveniently located one mile from the I-5 freeway, a scenic 15 minute drive from Orange County / John Wayne (SNA) Airport. The naturally landscaped hillsides shield the Villa from the freeway so you will not experience any traffic noise which is common with many of the view homes in the area.

San Juan Capistrano sits 140 feet above sea level three miles inland from the Pacific Ocean to its South. The Villa is located in the southern portion of San Juan Capistrano which experiences daily westerly winds which eliminates the need for air conditioning 99% of the year. However, the Villa has forced air heating and conditioning if you prefer a temperature controlled environment.

The average temperatures in San Juan range from a high of 74 degrees to a low average of 51 degrees year round. Year-round we have relatively low humidity, which is why you will not get any mosquito bites on this vacation.

Remember to Click on the link at the bottom of this page to visit our Website villasanjuancapistrano . com for a lot more photos and information.

The gourmet kitchen is equipped with cooking or hosting in mind with a Wolfe 6-burner gas range, Bosch dishwasher, wine cooler, built-in Subzero refrigerator, and every possible cooking appliance and utensil you might need to prepare a memorable meal which can be served in the cozy dining room, the outside dining area or at bar stool seating at extra large granite counter top. There are three grocery stores than 2 miles away, and a Trader Joe's less than 5 miles away. Filling up the kitchen with groceries not only saves you money on meals, but it is enjoyable to cook in this kitchen or BBQ outside with a great view of the hills.

The dining room has high-vaulted ceilings with mission-style furniture that comfortably seats six.

The home has a beautifully landscaped private yard with a tropical resort feel. A hammock, BBQ, umbrellas, heat lamps and comfy furnishings make this the perfect home for small gatherings or medium size parties or just relaxing, anytime day or night. There is a small herb garden you can help yourself to when preparing your meals.

There are also over 75 restaurants in San Juan Capistrano, many who deliver.

The Villa also has separate interior laundry room and guestroom bath on the first floor with Bosch washer and dryer. A great advantage for guests because it allows you to pack lighter since you will not need as many clothes.

The interior is bright and sunny with lots of windows and San Juan Hill views. The ceilings are high with an open floor plan so when you’re cooking you can still converse with your guests as well as see the 47' high-definition flat screen TV in the living room. The Villa comes with full cable TV including HBO, Cinemax, and hundreds of channels.

The master bedroom suite is on the first floor with a fireplace and has a very comfortable pillow top California King bed with Egyptian 600 thread count sheets, a beautiful custom cherry wood walk-in closet, sliding glass doors to the private backyard, 12' ceiling with a fan that allows for very comfortable napping or sleeping with the windows open or closed. It also has a High Definition (HD) flat screen with a DVD player.

In the master dressing area you will find a marble & glass shower stall, a state-of-the art, self-cleaning, Jacuzzi tub, double granite sinks, private toilet area and an awesome cherry wood walk-in closet.

The second floor includes another master suite with a beach theme. It has a private shower and dressing area, a separate toilet / bath / shower room, high-vaulted ceilings, ceiling fan, plasma TV with DVD player, and a very comfy queen bed with a cozy comforter and luxury sheets and lots of down pillows.

Also on the second floor are two spacious office work spaces with a computer and printer with wireless high speed internet, task lighting and ergonomic desk chairs. A third 32' TV with games, DVD, & VCR is located in this room with two large wing back chairs for watching shows or reading. The home also offers a library of over 100 books if you are an avid reader. The hammock in the yard is also a lovely place to read.

A very comfortable Murphy queen size bed is hidden inside the beautifully paneled loft walls and will comfortably sleep two additional guests who can easily access the adjacent bedroom's bathroom. This bed also has 600 Threadcount Egyptian cotton bedding with a down comforter and pillows.

The Villa is child friendly and well-behaved pet friendly with beautiful travertine stone and wood flooring throughout and fully fenced yard. A portable crib, high chair and pet beds are available upon request.

Less than 100 feet from our Villa is a gated heated swimming pool, with a 24 hour a day - 7 days a week heated Jacuzzi spa with dressing areas, showers and restrooms.

We also provide everything you need for some fun in the sun: Bicycles, beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, pool toys and picnic supplies.

Also, within the same area is a well-equipped gym with four weight lifting stations, two treadmills, two Ellipticals, one Stairmaster and two Lifecycles. This gym is rarely occupied, so you will have your choice of equipment when you visit.

San Juan Capistrano is very bike friendly and has almost every street has bike lanes. You can also ride our bikes to the beach down the San Juan Creek (Approx. 5 miles). There are also dozens of scenic mountain biking and hiking trails in the area with a trail head located in the neighborhood. Turn one way on the trail and you can see sailboats in the ocean and the other snow on the San Bernardino Mountains, all on the same day.

About Ginger Nelson

We own two homes in San Juan Capistrano. Our friends have always commented on what a beautiful area we live in. It's hard to find a nicer place to go on vacation, but that's a good predicament to be in. It makes sense to us to allow others to visit this beautiful part of the country and have all the comforts of home during their stay.

Why Ginger Nelson chose Orange County

We have lived in San Juan Capistrano for 18 years. We love the small town charm of San Juan but also appreciate all the conveniences such shopping, dining, beaches, and beautiful harbor that would normally create a very congested, over-populated vacation destination. The Villa is only two miles from downtown San Juan Capistrano and only one mile from the I-5 freeway on ramp. It is surrounded by golf course fairways and beautiful flower covered hillsides. It is truly paradise.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa is located in a gated, private community. It is very quiet and serene. The views are gorgeous. We love hiking in the hills or riding our bikes down to the beach, which only takes about 20 minutes. However, the drive by car to the beach & harbor is only 5 minutes. There are 75 restaurants in San Juan Capistrano and most are not your typical chain restaurants. They are very unique, with great atmospheres and friendly people. Doheny State Beach is gorgeous. A favorite surfing beach and fishing area. We love to go down and walk our dogs in the beautiful Dana Point Harbor or watch the Sunset over the Pacific Ocean in one of the many fine restaurants in the area. There are also at least a half a dozen theme parks within an hour of San Juan Capistrano: San Diego Zoo, Sea World Park, Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Legoland, Universal Studios, etc. There are wineries, race tracks and casinos all less than an hour's drive. Check out our website villasanjuancapistrano . com for a lot more information.

Even better than pictured. Better than imagined.

  • 5 of 5

It is not often that expectations are exceeded, but ours were. The property was clean, quiet, modern and full of comforts and sweet touches. Like we were visiting a friends home. And that is how the owners made us feel. Like trusted and welcome friends. Great pool and walking trails. Private cheerful patio yard.

Fantastic Villa in San Juan Capistrano!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and our little dog Elvis, have stayed in the Villa 3 years in the Feb.-March time period as we sought relief from Seattle weather. This is a terrific place to stay. Truly all the comforts of home in this well equipped and beautifully decorated house. A lovely little outdoor, private, fenced in courtyard for relaxing and enjoying the warm weather. And a great place for Elvis to roam around in the plants. Ginger and Chuck are great hosts taking care of any questions or concerns immediately. And Elvis has enjoyed playing with their two doodles. We are sure you will enjoy Villa SJC as much as we have.

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my family of 5 stayed at Ginger & Charlie's lovely villa.

We love the space & high end kitchen. There is more than enough room for myself, husband and three kids. The neighbourhood is fantastic and we took quite a few hikes as recommended by Ginger. We also love the fluffy robes and very clean bbq! I took my morning coffee every morning on the patio, watching the humming birds and palm trees sway.

Our only regret is that we waited too long to re-book!

You will not be disappointed if you stay at "Villa San Juan Capistrano"

Sincerely,

The Musto family

Awesome location. Everything you need.

Ginger and Charlie were very accommodating. The house is very clean and well appointed. Everything you need is there. The location is very central and there are wonderful walking trails surrounding the company. The pool and workout room are very close.

Our New Home Away from Home - Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for two months and enjoyed every moment. The home is cozy and beautifully decorated. The furnishings are comfortable, especially the sofas and the beds that are filled with silky smooth linens and fluffy pillows - they even provide robes! The kitchen was fully-stocked with every appliance, utensil, and even spices that I could imagine - I loved the Wolfe stove. We enjoyed cooking but also ventured out to the variety of local restaurants as well as many more a few miles away at Dana Point Harbor. We walked or biked almost every day. There are so many trails and wonderful views. The backyard is private and also filled with comfortable seating and a large hammock. I have never heard so many birds singing in the morning in my life. It’s a wonderful way to wake up. The neighborhood is gated and very safe, quiet with very friendly people. We are definitely returning next year to our new home away from home.

Perfect Villa in a great Southern California location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many vacation homes and I must say that the Villa San Juan Capistrano is among the best. The villa is beautifully appointed in the great town of San Juan Capistrano. Ginger and Charlie were very welcoming and easy to communicate with. We stayed over the holiday season and the villa was brilliantly decorated, including holiday cookies and libations - what wonderful touches! The kitchen was superb, allowing us to entertain guests on Christmas Day in style. The villa is located in a very quiet community, away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan area, but close to all regional attractions via the I-5 freeway. Dana Point is very close allowing easy access to a great seaside community and an excellent beach. The heated community pool is mere steps away from the villa, which provided us a relaxing first day. The yard is a peaceful oasis to relax and soak up the Southern California sun. It is also well secured for our small dog to amble about.

We had a wonderful stay at the villa and hope to be back soon.

Thanks Ginger and Charlie!
