Very safe neighborhood, central location

  • 3 of 5

This house is located in a very safe neighborhood and in a central location to many things in Irvine. There are some walkways and a playground very close by which was great for young children to explore. All of the beds were very clean and very comfortable. The washer and dryer were new and very nice.

We had a few issues which the owner, Chris, was quick to fix. He was very nice and professional.

There is a tenant which has a separate entrance and lives upstairs in a separate part of the house. The tenant was very quiet, but I am a light sleeper so I often heard him at night.

Fabulous All Around!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this location. The property accurately matched the advertised description. It was neat and fairly clean. The kitchen was very spacious and updated. The neighborhood seemed quiet and safe. There was plenty of room in the bedrooms for our group. There was wi-fi. Also, the property owner was super responsive to any email communication we sent during our stay.

As far as any drawbacks, perhaps the only things I'd mention would be a spider web near the rear sliding glass door and the dated bathrooms (but who goes on vacation for the bathrooms, right). Apart from that, it was a great place to stay!

I'd definitely recommend this place and would even come back again!

House not as advertised - Cob webs, black mold unwashed beddings

  • 2 of 5

We hosted relatives from out of town and when my wife took them to the house everyone was greatly disappointed!

1. The yard was not maintained and had cob webs and pine needles hanging down from the house

2. The beddings did not appear to have been washed from the previous tenant.

3. The floor mat in the bathroom was black with mold.

4. There was no outdoor furniture in the back yard except for one old plastic chair

5. The manager apologized and said he would refund our money but only refunded half and it required a second phone call to get the entire refund.

The bottom line is the house was so dirty that our out of town visitors did not feel comfortable or even safe from a health standpoint to stay at the house. We took them to the Marriott that was smaller and cost more but at least it had clean sheets etc.

We have rented through VRBO many times and this was the only bad experience we have had to date.

Feels like you've stepped into somebody else's house

  • 4 of 5

Pros:

1. Well-stocked, including all paper products, dish soap, etc. Unusual for VRBOs.

2. Fairly large. We brought our two small children and it was nice for each of them to have their own bedroom. There was also a study where my husband was able to do some work.

3. Owner super easy to deal with. Great communication. Our security deposit was refunded very promptly.

4. Affordable for the space.

5. In a planned community with good trails for running and walking, with a very small playground a minute walk from the house.

Cons:

1. The unit is in need of a deep clean. Although superficially clean, there were areas where dirt had built up over time (e.g., screen tracks). Not dissimilar to how my own home might be, but I expect a little bit better in a rental. The towels are probably due for replacement, and certain maintenance seems to have been deferred.

2. Certain items were left out that i am not used to seeing in rentals - e.g., owners' shoes.

3. Patio furniture a bit sparse. Could definitely use an outdoor table.

4. The neighborhood was somewhat convenient for us, as it is 10 minutes from my father-in-law. However, there is very little else nearby. We would have been better off 10 minutes closer to the beach and cute beach towns of Orange County. This may have been personal preference, but we felt like we spent a lot of time in the car. That being said, this might be a good option for a Disney/beach trip as it is really in the middle. We came from 3 days at Disneyland, which was 20 minutes away. Laguna Beach was 20 minutes in the other direction. There were decent delivery options to the house on DoorDash, Instacart and Amazon Now.
