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 North Tustin

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...

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Elizabeth is a great host and so helpful. The guesthouse was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay while visiting many attractions in the Orange County area. The bed was extremely comfortable. Highly recommended!

Elizabeth and her family added a welcoming touch to my stay in CA. The rental unit is equipped with a full kitchen in which I was able to cook a Thanksgiving meal. The unit is clean, comfortable, and cozy. It felt like home.

Perfect x100

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay, and while I was tempted to barricade myself in the apartment I didn't want to ruin my chance to stay there in the future. Okay all joking aside, this is a perfect spot for a single, couple or small family. Everything you need, in a delightful North Tustin area known as Cowan Heights.

Lovely Place to Stay!

Very nice apartment over the garage, with everything a traveller needs. Elizabeth met us on arrival and was very friendly. Lovely location in a beautiful neighborhood, and very quiet at night.

Pickleball Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We came to Orange County for the Surf City Pickleball Tournament in Huntington Beach. Everything at the beach was booked or too expensive. This gem is exactly as described. It was perfect for the two of us, SUPER quiet, peaceful, and private. It took us about 20 minutes to get to the tournament in Huntington. The apartment isn't an add-on but was built right along with the house. We felt like we were staying in a comfortable, spacious, well equipped treehouse. We never even closed the curtains because we were well above the road, and cars rarely passed, anyway. Beautiful parks, hiking, and biking trails are all around, along with some VERY chi-chi homes. Even though it seems remote, it's only minutes from downtown. An added bonus for us is that Tustin pickleball is right nearby. We had a great time and would definitely stay again. Thank you, Elizabeth!
