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

I loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in your home in Costa Mesa. I found the central location very convenient for visiting most all of the places I set out to explore. I also loved the spacious, open floor plan, the abundant light, the doors and windows that opened up to the backyard and the backyard was a glorious place to just hang out at the end of the day! I will look to yours first on my next visit to So Cal. Many thanks! Victoria

Fabulous modern family home, brings the outdoors in! Great location with easy beach access!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Eddie's home! Myself, husband and 2 young daughters thoroughly enjoyed the home. We came to the area for our older daughter to have surgery and stayed for over 2 weeks. The house was our perfect home away from home. We loved the outdoor spaces and open windows and doors that allowed you to bring the outdoors in! Our girls loved the bunk beds, all the books, games and beach toys but their favorite was the skateboard swing in the front yard! The back patio with cabana bar at the kitchen window was perfect for entertaining family that lived close by. The kids enjoyed playing soccer in the fenced in yard and swinging in the hammocks.

The work space was perfect for us as my husband and I needed to work while we there. We didn't use the futon in that room but it's nice to have the option.

The kitchen was stocked with every dish, pot and pan you would need. We enjoyed family meals at the kitchen table and chatter at the bar/island area.

The showers had excellent water pressure and the outdoor shower was a real treat!

The Wi-Fi was fine inside the house but spotty if you were sitting on the patio which wasn't a big deal at all for us.

We both enjoy running and there are some great running trails close to the house as well as great playgrounds. The beach is about 2 and half miles away. Close to restaurants, we even walked to a couple just down the street.

We would highly recommend this home! We visited during a stressful time in our lives (our daughter's surgery) but having this place to relax in made a tough situation much easier. Thank you Eddie, Sara and boys for sharing your home with us. The Davis family!

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.

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What an excellent place to stay. The pictures really don't do it justice. Eddie the owner is really helpful and answers all your questions straight away. The house is close to the lovely huntington beach and Newport beach and many restaurants. Also only 50 mins to all the atttractions and sights in LA. 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.
