Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. With 4 adults and 1 toddler we were all very comfortable and happy here. Fully stocked with everything we needed. I appreciated there was a pack and play available for my little one to sleep in. Loved the lush gardens and attention to detail inside and out! The

pictures really don't do it justice. It's a great location close to it all, tucked away in a small quiet neighborhood. Perfect for our small family! Would love to stay again.

We had to come to town for a memorial service and needed a place for seven of us. We couldn’t be happier with this property. We will stay here again.

A fully stocked, centrally located, cute, cozy home!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this sweet cottage. The entire house was stocked with everything we could possibly need. The front and back gardens are beautifully landscaped with love and care and are full of all kinds of birds. This was a perfect place to rest, rejuvenate and enjoy the quiet. Yet in a five minute car ride we were close to all the great things San Juan Capistrano has to offer. We will definitely be back!!

A Spring Break to Remember

  • 5 of 5

The Nicholl’s home was the topping on the cake for our trip to California. I was bringing my youngest son and his family (my two youngest grandsons) down for spring break, to share time with my oldest son’s family who live in Rancho Santa Margarita and includes my two oldest grandchildren. Native Californian’s all, half of us now live in Portland and wanted an opportunity to be with friends and family. We did everything from Disneyland, Universal Studios, San Diego Zoo, and a day playing in the ocean at San Clemente Pier. We all loved the warm and friendly house, so well stocked for all of our needs! My grandsons loved the yard full of lemons, limes, oranges, and loquats. We had to go out each morning and pick a few to take with us. The home is so lovely, makes you comfortable from the moment you walk in. Beautiful quiet neighborhood, just a short drive to Dana Point Harbor. We loved it so much we are planning on coming back in the winter. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Quaint, quiet, comfortable, convenient. This house is a gem and I even hate to let the secret out! We plan to stay here on all our trips to South Orange County. It's got everything we need to have a relaxing vacation!
