About Ed Rapp

I have lived in the area for over 40 years, growing up down the hill in South Huntington Beach. I couldn't be happier with the location on 'The Mesa!' We have a nice ocean breeze. An easy ride into both Huntington Beach and Newport Beach for a surf with our two kids. We get around mostly on our bikes, as restaurants, and plenty of activities are only a bike ride away. I enjoy a weekly golf with my pops at Los Lagos Golf Course.......which is always in excellent condition.

Ed Rapp purchased this house in 2000

Why Ed Rapp chose Costa Mesa

7700 sq' lot and big backyard is ideal for family and fun. Well kept lawn in the backyard and patio area great for bbq! The house is central to all kinds of activities and interests.

What makes this house unique

We have remodeled and brought the outside in, making for a nice place to stay in without feeling like you're 'staying in!'

Great place for the family

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here for a week, which included a 21 month and 6 month old. We had a great time. Very family friendly place, relaxing, great location, nice neighborhood, comfy beds/couches, had toys for the kids... Really just a beautiful home. We'll definitely look to book again on our next trip to OC.

First timers in CA

  • 5 of 5

We came as a well-rounded family. Meaning, we were looking for comfort, adventure seeking, close proximity to beaches, kid-friendly, convenience, good food, and great service. Little did we know, our trip included all of these and so much more. Beginning with the home, that was open and invited the California sun inside to the landscape and even the toys on hand which were a big hit for our 3 yr old. We soaked in the beaches daily. My husband and I even went for a run straight from this home as it is so close to other trails and the beach. I cannot say enough about the excellent service we received everywhere we went. Even our neighbors were friendly and welcoming. Little did we know that our added bonus was a homeowner so helpful we felt like we were back down south at home. All around a great experience for myself and my family! Will definitely be back!

Costa Mesa

We had an AMAZING time in here

  • 5 of 5

I live in Costa Mesa myself, my family of 5 came to visit me and they have 3 children. They stayed there for 28 days and literally didn't want to leave the comfort of this house even though they haven"t seen California before they were so happy to hang out in this house all together. Especially if you have kids this house is built in such detail wherever you are you always see what kids are up to, hope to be back next year. THANK YOU.

We stayed for two weeks and absolutely had the best vactaion ever. many thanks to the Rapps for letting us stay at their lovely home.

What a lovely home to stay in. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this house and the pictures really don't do it justice. The house is very light and roomy and perfect for a family of four. The owner Eddie was extremely helpful and answered any questions promptly. Everything was very easy to access and the instructions were perfect. The location is in a quiet residential area and the beach is only 10 mins by car, with restaurants and shopping also five/ten minutes. We used the house as a base to explore California and all the major tourist sites are only 1 hour away. The beaches in Huntington and surrounding areas are beautiful and well worth a visit. Overall we loved this house and can't wait to return.

Close to Disneyland and great for small children

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. We have 2 small children under 3 and it was perfect for us. It was 30 minutes from Disneyland and an hour from Legoland. There was also an amazing park very close by that had ducks, waterfalls, huge playground, large rocks to climb. We went there numerous times during our stay and the kids loved it. (Tewinkle Park)

The owners are very responsive and answered all questions. I had a lot of email exchanges with questions and he responded very quickly and thoroughly.

They left out a whole bunch of age appropriate toys for our kids which was very helpful. The house was super clean. The layout of the house was so nice that the kids could be playing in the backyard and we could easily keep eyes on them from the kitchen and living room.

We will more than likely stay there again when we hit Disneyland.
