This suburban tropical retreat is a well-appointed unique guest home with all the finer pleasures included. This lovely retreat is ideally located and conveniently close to everything awesome in the OC. Our pet friendly retreat is a relaxed venue that is well appointed with just about everything you need to achieve a ‘high value’ Southern California experience for you and your family, furry or human or both!
Charmingly designed and eclectically decorated with discerning accommodation, complete with luxurious quality essentials not typical of even your finest hotels. This easy flow and stylistic unit fits even the most gregarious and picky of families. Your home away from home marries quality, function, convenience and economic sense with something unique and special that will leave you looking forward to your next visit.
Your Tropical Retreat is a completely private 2nd floor flat that occupies the entire North side of a larger Southern California residence with window exposure on the North, East and West directions of the property. When you arrive, you will enter through your private gate entrance in front of your dedicated parking space. You will walk into a delightfully landscaped and decorated large enclosed patio, then proceed towards your nautically themed outdoor deck and stairway which will take you to your home away from home, which is just past the patio fountain and bistro deck, through the French doors.
You will enjoy exclusive use of the guest retreat which consists of: two (2) well sized bedrooms and (1) full bathroom, a large separate living room which can also be used as a 3rd bedroom, a well-appointed kitchenette, roomy breakfast bar seating for 4, a 600+ sq. ft. fully enclosed private patio (great for dogs to safely roam free) complete w/ a gas BBQ and quaint outdoor seating and dining area decorated to inspire peace and a chill Southern California vibe, a separate bistro deck with viewing balcony, and dedicated parking for one guest vehicle. (Plenty of street parking in front of the home is also available) While the exclusive use areas provide total privacy for you and your family, the Guest Retreat is attached to the main residence. (See Property Composition Diagram).
You are also welcome to venture beyond your exclusive private deck and patio and enjoy the main house backyard and patios with tropical gardens, wading fountain, gas fire pit and seating, Jacuzzi/spa with a 50” flat screen TV, and fountain area seating. (These are non-exclusive areas that are also used by the owners and their pets) Our Furry guests (your furry family) is welcome to accompany you when you are enjoying the main backyard areas, and we encourage our furry friends (and their owners) to romp in the fountain or enjoy a cocktail in the hot tub while watching their favorite shows on the outdoor flat screen TV! There is a large area of artificial dog grass for easy doggie duty in the backyard.
The enclosed patio is perfect for your furry and human family, offering security and space to play or just leisurely hang out while human mom and dad venture to dinner or shopping. We may also offer dog sitting for a nominal fee depending on our availability, just ask! Should you choose to venture beyond their exclusive areas to enjoy the benefits of the hot tub, fire pit area, fountain, or lighted gardens, they may be greeted by Maggie (lab mix) and Leo (cock-a-poo), or perhaps run into the owners tending the tropical garden. We respect the privacy of our guests and often times don't see our guests at all during their stay, but we do love to meet our honored guests and their families if the opportunity permits. Someone is almost always on site should you require any assistance during your stay in making your visit the best it can be!
