About the property

Single Family Home, 2 Bedrooms & 2 Full bathrooms, with attached garage.

Located in the heart of Orange County, this 1400 sq foot single family home is perfect for your Southern California vacation. Situated just 10 minutes from Disneyland Theme Park & Resort and California Adventure Park & Resort, 5 minutes from Orange County Airport (John Wayne/SNA), and 15 minutes from the beautiful Southern California beaches. This home is right in the middle of all that Orange County has to offer.

We are Southern California natives and have called this house home for over 6 years. We love living in Southern California, particularly in Santa Ana. A typical weekend here might include a family hike through Peter's Canyon, or a stroll through Historic Hart Park where we might stop to feed the squirrels. We enjoy taking walks through Old Town Tustin, maybe stopping for lunch at Rutabgorz or a frosty treat at the Snow Station, or we might go antiquing or grab some mexican food at the Historic Orange Circle. You will find the O'Campos (us) just about every Saturday and Sunday morning at our favorite coffee house, Kean Coffee in nearby Tustin. On those summer days, we'll spend the afternoon at the pool right here in our development, or we'll take a drive to Newport, Laguna, or Huntington Beach, and we'll end the day with a cold drink and a Barbecue right on our back patio. During the winter months, we love visiting Downtown Disney with all it's Holiday splendor. It's beautiful and not to be missed. And Disneyland itself, well, that's a rare and special treat that's certainly worth the wait. Our wood burning gas fireplace gets a lot of use on those cooler nights, when we gather together for a movie and a nice warm fire in our own living room. We are fortunate enough to be able to travel on occasion, and also spend time with extended family throughout the year. We thought that those times would be the perfect opportunity to offer our home to you for your Southern California vacation! We love it here that much, and are confident that you will too.

Again, we are located in a quiet private community of detached single family homes, featuring 2 swimming pools, 2 hot tubs, with lush green belts and grass areas, and situated across the street from a large park and public tennis courts.

Here's a little more about the house...

Single-story home. 2 bedrooms. 2 full bathrooms. Master bedroom features a Queen-sized bed, vaulted ceiling, walk-in closet, private bath, and access to an enclosed patio. 2nd bedroom features Queen-sized bed, large 3 panel closet, and access to rear patio.

Attached garage with remote access. Washer and Dryer located in garage.

Large, fully stocked kitchen, living room with wood burning/gas fireplace, dining room with seating for 8, 2 furnished patios with one gas grill.

Central heating and A/C with ceiling fans in bedrooms, kitchen and dining room.

42' LCD TV in living room, 30' LCD TV in Master bedroom. At&t Uverse and Hi-speed wireless internet.

Walking distance to park, tennis courts, shopping centers, and restaurants. Less than 1/4 mile to major freeways (5, 55, 22 fwys).

About John & Michelle O'Campo

We are the O'Campos. We are natives of Southern California. We have lived in various cities throughout Orange County. John was born in Santa Ana, and raised in the Santa Ana and Anaheim area. John attended Fullerton College, where he began his singing career with a Doo Wop Quartet called The Alley Cats, who's first real gig was a run at Disneyland. John also spent many holidays at Disneyland singing with the Dickens Carolers. There are a lot of memories for John back at Disneyland, along with many friends who still work there. Michelle came to Orange County in 1992 to pursue work in the Real Estate Industry. (Talk about opposites.) The Southern California Real Estate market has provided Michelle with a steady career in various areas of Real Estate for over 25 years. Michelle’s favorite thing about Orange County is its many beaches, and has lived in Newport Beach and Dana Point. We (John & Michelle) met in 1998 while taking swing dance lessons. We quickly became dance partners, and were married in 2002. Our first home together was in Laguna Niguel, next we moved to Irvine. Then we moved to Santa Ana in 2008, where we now reside with our young son. We have enjoyed everything about living in Santa Ana. We call it the little big city. We love the small town feel and its neighboring cities of Tustin and Orange. We plan on staying in Santa Ana for years to come. We are fortunate enough to have many friends and family nearby. Our dream is to be able to slow down one day and spend more time with family and friends, entertain more, and travel more. In the meantime, we will enjoy the many things that our life in Santa Ana has to offer. When we are in a position to travel more, will be the first place we look.

Great house within a quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and provided exactly what we needed for our time in L.A. John was an excellent host who even stopped by to introduce himself. The pool was a 2 minute walk from the front door. It was central to everything we wanted to see in L.A. Thanks again John and family for letting us use your house.

Carl and family.

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to OC and our stay at the O'Campo's house very much. The owners were very accommodating and welcoming. We were late in arriving due to a flat tire in LA - when we arrived at the home late that night, there was a bottle of wine and some gluten free treats for the kids on the table! The kids loved playing with the legos! John and Michelle were very responsive when the refrigerator went out! They came right over and were ready to replace it and care for our food right away! Other than the fridge, we had no issues and would highly recommend this property! The O'Campo's are so friendly.

Great stay in Santa Ana

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip in CA and enjoyed our stay at the home. The home was in the center of everything we were doing and the recommendations for restaurants was spot on. We spent our final day a the pool before traveling home which was very relaxing. Would definitely book again if we get back out to CA from Tampa.

We stayed in the cutest little bungalow in Tustin with our granddaughters. The location is perfect for exploring Orange County!
