About Carol

I enjoy helping families plan their visits or vacations to Southern California! Being one of the first to offer a vacation house in the area on VRBO since 2005, combined with being a native local resident puts my expertise towards bringing you a great experience renting a house for an extended stay, temporary housing, or seasonal vacation. This special family home has a long standing history of excellent reviews from happy families, ensure yourself peace of mind in your vacation home choice.

I grew up seeing my Dad work as a real estate broker at his own real estate company. I managed rental properties for 10 years before I got into the vacation rental aspect. It has been 25 years and I am still enjoying it.

It is important to me that my guests have a great experience and want to come back again if they return to the area! I am also an annual Disneyland Passholder & Disney enthusiast, a great reference for navigating the Disney parks. Feel free to reach me anytime on the # listed and I will be happy to assist you anytime, before and during your stay. Happy Vacationing!

Why Carol chose Orange

The Lovely Garden House has a warm, welcoming feeling from the moment you open the front door. Relax in the spacious living room, 3 comfortable bedrooms (4 beds), enjoy the beautiful kitchen & dining room, and your own private park-like tropical backyard w/ spa! It's rare to find a single/one story house in Orange County set on a 1/4 private lot to enjoy all to yourself, providing more tranquility than many new neighborhoods with zero lot lines or small patios as a backyard.

Centrally located in the heart of Orange County.

What makes this house unique

Guests love the 1/4 acre private park-like garden backyard with hot tub and huge lawn. The house is in a safe neighborhood with long time neighbors.

Fresh cut flower bouquets around the house to make your stay more delightful. There are family board games for nights in. This house is relaxing and comfortable, from the moment you walk through the front door. Welcome to your home away from home!

Better than the pictures, a peaceful retreat...

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautifully landscaped home with such a perfect back yard, that it is easy to forget how nice the interior of the house is. The living room is nicely appointed and a comfortable place for visiting or watching TV. Some of the bedrooms are themed (Disney of course) and have comfortable beds for all. But the kitchen is wonderfully laid out with lots of counter space and every cooking utensil you would ever need to serve anything from a gourmet meal to a quick snack. (My grandson's favorite was the Mickey Mouse waffle iron...) The hot tub was nice after a long day at the Parks and helped to restore Papa's tired bones. It is freeway close to the parks, but far enough away to relax away from the tourist crush the hotels provide. Grocery and restaurant choices are close and plentiful. Carol is great to work with and is quick to respond to any questions that may arise. You owe it to yourself to experience this terrific property. You won't regret it.

We really enjoyed it!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and the backyard was beautiful. The beds were very comfortable which I liked. Everyone slept well. My husband and my 4 year old had a fun time exploring the back yard. Carol was good to be in touch and answer my questions if I had them. We will stay here again if we ever go back that way. Thanks Carol :)
