About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy the beauty and excitement of Southern California while avoiding the Disney traffic! Just a stone’s throw from all of Southern California’s greatest assets, including a 10 minute drive to Disneyland, our newly remodeled home is waiting for you and your family to move right in. We are located in the center of the ‘southland’ with easy surface street or freeway access to all Orange County, Los Angeles and San Diego attractions.

This grand, Mediterranean-style hacienda home is an ideal set up for families of all sizes and reunions of old friends. It is situated at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac with a large front and back yard, grand size swimming pool with Jacuzzi and RV parking if needed. If you are looking for a place to situate a family reunion, the home is perfect for socializing with a large modern kitchen, two living/family rooms with vaulted ceilings, large flat screen HD TVs in each room, gas/wood fireplace, multiple seating areas suited for games, movies, sports or quiet reading along with plenty of curb-side parking for additional guests.

The single-story home has 3 beautifully decorated standard bedrooms along with a luxurious master bedroom with a private flat screen HD TV, large bathroom and private access to the pool/Jacuzzi. The bathrooms have been 100% remodeled with a stylish and unique hacienda flare – old world style with modern-day spaciousness. As an added feature, the entire home is wheelchair accessible due to the openness of the floor plan – helping with the young ones in their strollers or our valued seniors with walkers and wheelchair needs. (Cribs and ramps for the two step entrance way available upon request). Added conveniences include a laundry area and barbeque.

All of the well known attractions are very close by: Disneyland, Universal Studios, Six Flags - Magic Mountain, Knott’s Berry Farm, The Wax Museum, San Diego Safari (previously, Wild Animal Park) and/or Zoo, Sea World. Don’t miss out on some of the newer activities such as the Aquarium of the Pacific, Disney’s aquatic exploration, (Long Beach), the Discovery Science Center (Santa Ana) for hands-on science fun or Raging Waters (San Dimas)and Soak City (Buena Park) our local water parks. Of course there are the natural wonders of So. Cal. Including Big Bear Mountain for skiing, hiking, mountain biking, sledding, Corona Del Mar for ocean tidepooling (check the tide charts for low tide)or Temecula Wine Country. Want to see your favorite sit-com or talk show taped in Hollywood/Burbank? Take in some culture at The Getty or Norton Simon museums? The Nixon Library is only 4 miles from the house - a quick way to spend a free couple of hours. Or, maybe, just enjoy the abundant sunshine at the local beaches, parks or golf courses.

We look forward to sharing our beautiful home with you and to enhancing your extra-ordinary trip to Southern California. We know it will not be your last!

About Lynn Berry

Once upon a time, this was our family home where we were blessed with a happy, safe and fulfilling childhood. Many of the exciting, fun and educational attractions and natural wonders of Southern California were a stone’s throw from our home. Now that we are grown, we are excited to share our home with you with all of the modernizations and comfort advancements of today while preserving the family traditions and safety of yester-year.

Lynn Berry purchased this house in 1972

Why Lynn Berry chose Placentia

Following my heart and my business opportunities, I have relocated and am keeping my So. Cal. home for frequent vacations. Since I very recently completed a full home remodel, it seemed a shame not to share this beautiful home with other families. It has everything you will need with a price tag that no hotel can match.

What makes this house unique

Our home is a beautiful single story ranch home with a large heated pool and spa. There is plenty of 'running around' space for the young kids both in the front and backyard - not to mention we are at the end of a cul-de-sac, eliminating almost all traffic. Located within minutes of Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, local sports stadiums, Orange County beaches and just a little bit further from all of the famous L.A. and San Diego attractions. Convenient around-town shopping and a couple of outstanding malls are within a walk, bike-ride or short car trip away. The local walking park is about 1/6 of a mile from the house and is a perfect 1 mile around for the morning stretch of your legs and the local Starbucks is about 1/8 of a mile from the house, too. This town is in the middle of it all and yet is quiet, safe and very community focused. Ideal for a restful vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(Posted with Guest Permission) - We had such a great time! Your house was perfect for our family. We had everything we needed. Elaine was kind enough to bring us some milkweed seeds as the kids were fascinated with the caterpillars in the butterfly garden. The kitchen was well stocked and big enough for several cooks at one time. We had many enjoyable meals with families taking turns to prepare them. We would love to rent again, maybe we could all be together at Christmastime one year. Thanks again. It was a pleasure working with you to make everything exceed our expectations!

4th Visit: Best in Class

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay at this top notch property over the past few years.

Lynn and Elaine, once again, provided an exceptionally clean and well-maintained home base for our trip to the Orange County area.

Please see my prior reviews for specific notes and points deserving of recognition.

As before, this property is our first choice when traveling to the area. The home is in an extremely quiet neighborhood and is well-suited for lazy afternoons and relaxed entertaining or, if you are busy day-trippers, a welcoming "hearth" at the end of the day.

We look forward to our next stay with Lynn and her team.

Vacation Dream House

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for our vacation based on previous reviews and the location - and we didn't regret it! It was our first family vacation back to So Cal from when we moved away ten years ago and we couldn't be more pleased with our stay. The location allowed us to visit all our old stomping grounds in the Orange and LA County area and was close to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm. We booked the house in mid February hoping to have cooler weather, and other than it storming one day, the weather was great! Except for that one rainy day, our three kids loved the heated pool and spent every waking minute playing in the water or relaxing in their own bedrooms.

This beautiful house was spotless and smartly decorated. We had friends and family over a few evenings and all the kitchen supplies you need for a full dinner party are there for you. We didn't have to pack beach towels either, as Lynn welcomed us to use what she had in her linen closet. The keyless entry for the front door worked out perfectly with no worries about losing a key. My husband and I enjoyed walks around the safe neighborhood. A park was a short distance away to spend time with the family.

We flew into LAX on Sunday and left on the following Sunday. The traffic, remarkably, was great for us...ALL week! We purposefully came back to So Cal in the "winter" to avoid heavier traffic due to tourists that tend to flock there during holiday breaks and the summer months. We are so very pleased our plan worked out for the best.

Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our family vacation. It may have taken us ten years to return to California, but because we had such a good time, we have already planned to return to Lynn's lovely home in the next year or two!

Thanks Lynn for your hospitality and answering all our questions during the booking process.

Perfect family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Lynn and family for an incredible place for me to bring my mom with my husband and kids to visit family and friends who live in OC during the holidays. Your house is so comfortable with all the amenities one would need. Elaine was so accommodating by bringing us an electric mixer late in the evening so we could properly mash our potatos for the family dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to find the office is now a full bedroom. Everyone had there own room which made both grandma and kids happy. Loved taking long walks to the park, seating outside on the patio and just hanging out in the house. Thank you for sharing your wonderful house. We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO booking and I must say it set high standards. I picked this place because the reviews read it was clean. The reviews were 100% correct. This place was spotless! This beautiful property had everything our family needed to make our vacation a success. Thank you Lynn and Elaine for an experience we'll never forget. We'll be back!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house to attend a trade show at the Anaheim Convention Center. The home was very clean, spacious & and updated with everything you could ask for in a hotel which was a plus since we stayed with non-family / friends. There was plenty of room to roam. If you are a family planning on going to Disneyland this would be a great option.

On a side note, the L.A traffic is a bear & finding parking on the weekdays near the convention center is rough so plan on the ride taking you about 45+ minutes to door to door. This was still a much more budget friendly option than booking 4 rooms near the convention center. I would recommend staying at this property.
