The cottage is an upgraded and remodeled 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in the upscale Northwood Pointe/Orchard Hills area of Irvine. This area is nestled up against the Loma Ridge Mountains. The mountain views provide a dramatic backdrop and you can even see the working avocado orchards in the foothills. Irvine is consistently ranked as one of the best cities in america to live in and almost always ranked as the safest city in the country! The city is one large, beautifully maintained, master planned community with parks, amenities and recreational opportunities galore!

15 minutes to Disney! 15 minutes to the beach! Easy access to everything Southern California has to offer!

At the cottage there will be no one above you or below you and no shared walls. This is a detached house with your own, direct access garage. This is a professionally decorated home that is highly maintained and fully equipped for your stay. You will love the upscale touches like hard wood floors throughout and new marble floors in the bathrooms. The well stocked, upgraded kitchen features stainless steel appliances and new counter tops.

The master suite features a big, California king bed, flat panel tv with blu-ray player and a private bathroom. The second bedroom has a comfy queen size bed and flat panel tv. The comfortable living room has a big screen tv, fireplace and a queen size sofa sleeper. The newly added front patio is very popular with our guests for morning coffee or evening drinks!

Of course there is free wifi in the cottage and a full size washer and dryer.

With easy access to area attractions and beaches, the cottage is great for SoCal vacations or temporary housing. There are playgrounds, a park, tennis center, basketball court, sand volleyball and a swimming pool all for you to enjoy within our Northwood Pointe development. We are close to the Hicks Canyon hike/bike/equestrian trail which runs along the border of the community. This makes the cottage ideal for guests that want active recreational opportunities. Our home is also excellent for long term stays like corporate relocations and we do offer discounts for multi month stays.

This is a no smoking home which includes e-cigarettes and vapor products. No pets please. Must be 25 or older to rent. Sorry but per Irvine City code, minimum stay in all Irvine rental homes is 30 nights. Please inquire for details.

About Alan

Our names are Alan & Sandy and we are the proud owners of the Cottage at Lanes End. We have two teenage daughters that were born in Georgia, but are definitely California girls now! We have had the opportunity to live all over the U.S., but our favorite place by far is Southern California and in particular, Irvine. We really enjoy the time we get to spend at the Cottage and we know you will too.

Alan purchased this house in 2012

Why Alan chose Irvine

We originally moved to Irvine because of the great schools for our children. We stayed because of the fantastic weather, the close proximity to the ocean and the abundance of local activities and amenities that lead to a fun, active lifestyle.

What makes this house unique

What we really love about this home is the quaint, garden and cottage theme of the community, the area mountain views, and of course that dutch door!!

Very well equipped and comfortable home in a nice neighborhhod

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for two months (Feb. and March 2017), and enjoyed the clean, well organized, well equipped home in a safe, quiet , convenient neighborhood. It has everything needed to live comfortably, despite the small size. The eating area is small, but the outside patio helps for more seating if needed. The owner is very helpful and responsive. We would definitely hope to return for another visit n the future.

Peaceful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We were seeking a 2 week get-away to visit family, CDM, and Laguna. The location was perfect, the cottage itself was neat as a pin, and well appointed.

Loved the proximity to all of the wonderful walking trails and parks. Friendly neighborhood and a warm & welcoming environment.

Don't bother looking elsewhere, this is the spot!

Beautiful charming home in a great neighborhood and near everything we wanted to do. Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about renting this house went so seamlessly. The owners are great, and everything went seamlessly renting it. House is beautiful, clean, updated and feels very "homey". Loved the location - very central to freeways and getting to everywhere in Orange County and LA. We will definitely rent this beautiful home again next time we go back.

Wonderful home, quiet and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at this lovely home, it was perfect for our family with two teenagers. Our daughter had the upstairs bedroom to herself and our son who liked to stay up late was able to have the downstairs and the sofa bed to himself. My husband is super tall so the California King bed in the master was was really nice to have. In fact, it was the only rental I could find with a Cal King. The kitchen is well stocked and very organized with everything labeled so you knew where to put things back. It was a bit chilly when we were there in December so the fireplace was wonderful to have. Quiet location and close to several shopping centers and restaurants.The owner, Alan, was very pleasant to work with and super quick to respond to any questions I had. I highly recommend this rental property!

The cottage is located in irvine at the heart of orange county. Not only is irvine a great place because of all the amenities and it's proximity to so many of southern california's attractions, but it also a beautiful, master planned community that is consistently ranked as one of the top, safest cities in america!
