Nancy and Mark purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Nancy and Mark chose Cowan Heights
This Mediterranean style of architecture and the lush landscaping at this property are beautiful. The property includes many very nice community amenities including two pools, two spas, a fitness center and a clubhouse. In addition it is walking distance to parks, shopping and dining. Whether traveling on business or pleasure, this property is perfect for you if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful retreat at the end of you day.
What makes this Condo unique
This property is unique - we are in a very popular area in the city of Orange surrounded by rolling hills, open space and several very popular parks - Irvine Regional Park is less than one mile away where you will find terrific hiking trails, bike rentals, the OC Zoo, a weekly farmers market and even horse back riding! Also very close to Old Town Orange, Chapman University, dining, shopping and entertainment. Major destinations for shopping, dining and entertainment are Irvine Spectrum, Fashion Island, The Outlets at Orange and South Coast Plaza. This property is just 12 miles to Disneyland, it is across the street from Peters Canyon Regional Park, walking distance to Santiago Hills Park, and walking distance to a shopping center with a major grocery store (Albertsons) where there is also an in store Starbucks open 5AM to 10PM daily! It is very unique that you don't need a car to get to these amenities, when typically a car is required to get everywhere in OC. Whether you are going to Orange, Anaheim, Irvine, Fullerton, Newport Beach, Santa Ana or anywhere in Southern California, this is a wonderful choice! Centrally located within approximately 30 minutes to all of Orange County. Visit Newport Beach or Laguna Beach in just a short 30 minute drive. Easy access to the freeway and toll roads.

Great Condo - excellent location
This condo is exactly like the photos. Beautifully decorated, clean and well equipped. The hosts were fantastic with their communication during our stay, making sure everything was ok. The condo is in an area of Orange County that is less hustle bustle than downtown LA which was great for us, not having to deal with highway traffic. Heaps of shopping locations near by (that was what we were there for). Recommend The Tustin Market Place and The Outlets at Orange, and if you fancy more of a drive - Ontario Mills. This is a very safe and neighbourly area. Keep in mind this is a small one bedroom condo, perfect for 2 people but would be crowded with more than that. It is the perfect spot to base yourself for taking in all of what Orange Country and Los Angeles has to offer. We loved it and will definitely stay here again when we next come to California. Thank you Nancy and Mark for providing a lovely 'home away from home' for our stay.
Beautiful condo, beautiful complex!
Beautiful condo, always enjoy my stays here. It’s peaceful and quiet. A lovely neighborhood. Thank you Mark and Nancy for another lovely trip...and letting me stay in your beautiful home! 😊
Immaculate condo close to everything
Comfortable clean condo. Owners are lovely and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We hit Disney, Laguna Beach, LA, Dana Point all within a comfortable driving distance. We had a great time, thanks!
A Perfect Stay in Orange County
We echo everything that the previous guests have said! The home is beautiful, bright, modern, and clean. The owners, Nancy and Mark were so attentive and checked in on us multiple times during our stay - they even offered to make us dinner reservations when we landed! The neighbourhood was absolutely beautiful and well kept. It was very calm, quiet, and safe, and the neighbours were very friendly. You are steps away from a great pool and fitness room, which were also very quiet and well kept. It was a great plus that we were able to put our car in a garage that is located steps behind the property as well. There isn't a thing Nancy and Mark haven't thought of - the Welcome Directory has take-out menus, directions to local spots, instructions on how to use the shower, etc. The home also has a starter supply of all of the basics: dish soap, hand soap, dishwasher packets, garbage bags, cleaning supplies, paper towel, toilet paper, kleenex, salt, pepper (plus a selection of spices), sugar packets (and sweetener/Splenda), milk/creamer, tin foil, sandwich bags, plastic wrap, etc. In addition to all of this, Nancy and Mark were very thoughtful and provided items that we thought were above and beyond such as coffee, coffee filters, a selection of tea bags, two packets of oatmeal, two granola bars, two water bottles, and two bottles of apple juice. Moreover, they also supplied a small bottle of Tide laundry detergent, which was the perfect amount for our 10-day stay, a pack of Bounce dryer sheets, as well as a great supply of extra linens and towels, a blow dryer, a magnifying mirror, etc. All of these items really made us feel at home and were very convenient to have. All in all this was 10/10 stay and we will definitely be back if we are in the area. Look no further! Your search is over, this is the place to stay!
Hi Leanne thank you for your kind review, it was wonderful to host you and we do hope you can return for another visit anytime.
We really appreciate the detailed and thoughtful feedback about your stay.
Wishing you all the best always,
Nancy and Mark
This property is immaculate! There isn't a thing out of place or a thing that they haven't thought of. The property is small but lives large! We stayed here for a week and loved every minute of it. The grounds and pool are as beautiful as the furnishings in the condo. Nancy and Mark are very attentive owners. They should run a bed and breakfast!
Thanks for a wonderful experience. We will be back!
Another 5 star rating for this property
This place was an excellent choice for us. It was spotless inside and the grounds are very well maintained. Nancy and Mark were very attentive to our needs and they kept in contact with us during our stay to make sure everything was what we expected. Even though the condo complex is next to a busy street and nearby freeway we never heard any road noise or noise from the neighbors. We ended each day having a glass of wine sitting on the front porch. The pictures are an accurate representation of what the condo was like. Everything was brand new. Thanks again Nancy and Mark for letting us stay at your place. It was terrific.
Hi Steve thank you for your kind review, we really appreciate it.
We hope you can return to our property in the future.
