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!

I would rent again

  • 5 of 5

There were but two of us in a three bedroom house and it was just fine. The kitchen is well-appointed -- and it goes against my principles to cook when I am on vacation so we ate daily with SJC friends. Driveway is steepish and husband fell and got bunged up a bit. The 'caretaker' brought over a first aid kit when I couldn't locate one on the premises. (Husband's scrapes are doing fine--no worries.) We don't have cable tv in our house in MN and making the tv work was a challenge. Probably due to my ineptness. Oh, I *really* liked the push button lock/unlock system.

We would rent again in a heartbeat. Truly.

Owner's Response: Happy you had a great time! We will make sure the first aid kit is in a more visible location for future guests. We enjoyed having you as a guest.
