About Elizabeth Murray

Ron and Elizabeth are the owners of this property but 'Lilly' the families 'yellow lab' thinks she is in charge. Don't worry, she is real nice! Although the home was built in 2007, this property has been in the family since 1960 and at one time was the home of Elizabeth's horses, but they galloped away : ( Now we enjoy the hills of North Tustin with all its quiet and beauty it still has to offer.

Elizabeth Murray purchased this cottage in 1960

Why Elizabeth Murray chose Orange County

Our family has owned this property since 1960 although the home was built in 2007. We love living here. It is so peaceful and quiet and a unique location here in Orange County California!

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is one of the very few in Orange County that is comparable to a country living, very quiet and beautiful place to live. We have over 80 fruit trees located here along with large eucalyptus and pepper trees and a shallow creek running outside your bedroom window. During summer it is very low compared to winter with the rains that allow for greater water flow. A short walk allows for beautiful views of the untouched local hills or city views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay. My 20 month old son was sohappy to play with Lilly and feeding the chickens, alsop, the owners even gave us some eggs! Wonderful people, peaceful place and vwery relaxing atmosphere...

Beautiful place to stay in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the view! If you are into hiking there is a 1.5 hr mountain trail near the house that is breathtaking but be ready for the climb. About 30 mins from Disney and the beaches, if you don't mind the driving.

Beautiful Property in Excellent Upscale Location

  • 5 of 5

We were greated by Elizabeth upon our arrival with a warm welcome. She explained the property and provided a key. This property is much larger than expected. Very clean and comfortable. The next time we travel to S. California we hope we are fortunate enough to stay at this property again. Very quiet, upscale neighborhood close to Disneyland, beach etc.. loved our stay here and would highly recommend.

Hands down - our favorite place!!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our week stay!! We hardly get out west but if the opportunity arose again, this place is at the top of our list! We have stayed at quite a few VRBO/AirBNB's and this, by far, is our favorite! From arranging our check in & check out, privacy, accessibility to beaches/shopping/LA & Hollywood/eating, Disney, Universal Studios, kitchen supplies, linens, TV/wifi and the incredible neighborhood - I can't find any room for improvement. Thank you Ron & Elizabeth for providing an awesome home away from home and a wonderful sample of fresh honey!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and our rental was very clean and comfortable. It is in a very serene area, perfect for walking with a park close by. Elizabeth was very helpful with suggestions when asked. Our granddaughter enjoyed sleeping in the little room off of the kitchen. She felt like she was Harry Potter, sleeping under a staircase. We would definitely recommend staying here.

A Welcome Respite in SoCal!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this sweet little property tucked away in the hills of North Tustin. We came to the area to visit LA, DisneyLand, and other area attractions with our 10- and 5-year old and loved settling into a quite respite at the end of a busy day. We found the bed to be comfy (even though we are used to having a King at home... and are quite picky!), and didn't feel like we were on top of one another. The owners were helpful without being "in our space" at all. Loved having laundry in the unit. Fully-stocked kitchen was great. Tip: For some of the best Italian food you have ever had, head to Roma D' Italia (was recommended by Elizabeth)! - We are there 2-3 times in 5 days!
