Overview

About the property

This house has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath. Located a stones throw from a Nature Preserve

Well after a year of providing this property I have to say it has been a total success. the house is only used as a HOME AWAY rental. Our home was remodeled from top to bottom November 2014 and we have strived to keep the homes fresh look and modern feel. It's private and off the beaten path. All appliances are like new and it has the things that matter like comfortable beds, Down pillows, comforters & nice sheets. Amy & I have been using VRBO for many years and the number one thing is a good nights sleep so we offer that accommodation. Other details we like to see are things like a place to hang your toiletry bag, a magnifying mirror, lots of towels, & a hot shower.

Our patio has a Tru-Infrared barbecue (no flair ups), It's private and opens up to the house nicely.

This house has two bedrooms both with Queen size beds and a fold down couch in the living room when needed.

There is a 650 acre wilderness preserve & park 700' from your front door. Ideal for an evening walk, morning jog, or even a picnic.

The river walk takes you directly to the beach.

I think the house will make a great retreat for you after your day of fun in the sun. Included with this rental is a Beach parking pass upon request. Beach parking can run as high as $15.00 a day so don't forget borrow our pass!!!

Please feel free to ask us for assistance in planing your visit.

More than glad to help.

About James Tolan

Amy & Jim.......

We both grew up in Northeast Ohio. We have known each other since the 70s and Live in Costa Mesa California now.

James Tolan purchased this house in 2006

Why James Tolan chose Costa Mesa

This house is located away from the traffic and is on a bluff that gets a steady sea breeze keeping temperatures moderate in the summer months. I have lived in this area for 25 years and found it to be a safe & friendly place. The weather can't be beat.

What makes this house unique

Private, Detached house, Plenty of parking right i front of the house, close to beaches without being right in the middle of the hustle bustle, Comfort & Value.

Wonderful experience, speaking from a first timer staying at a place like this vs a hotel.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Jim and Amy's cottage. It was very clean and had everything we needed for my family of 4 ( including my 2 yr old and 7 yr old kids). We loved spending time in the enclosed outdoor patio and walking down to the bluffs/park that were minutes away. This place was super close to everything. We will definitely stay again when we visit and recommend it to family and friends!

We loved staying in this cozy little cottage. It had everything we needed for a great spring break trip to CA. Great location near the beach and nice trails through the nature reserve. Thanks Jim and Amy for your hospitality.

Fantastic location!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this place are incredible! Super clean home, excellent accommodations, fantastic location.

We were traveling with an infant and Jim recommended we utilize traveling baby, a rental company for baby needs while on vacation. We also ordered groceries. Everything was delivered and set up in the home before we arrived. It was awesome.

Everything was extremely clean when we arrived. House is charming and very welcoming! Much better than staying in a hotel! It was perfect for our 5 person family. The kids had a blast!

While there we were able to go to the beach, enjoy entertainment in Bueno Park, go deep sea fishing and take the kiddos to Disney California Adventure! This home was in the perfect location (within 30 minutes of all activities).

This is the first stress free vacation we have had in years!

Currently waiting on damage deposit refund but other than that; 5 stars for sure!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful weather, beautiful location, a very peaceful get away. The owners provided the best customer interaction, and were prompt on answering any and all questions. It was absolutely the most perfect choice for our family. The location was amazing for all our planned activities including our two day trip to Disneyland, the many beautiful beaches we drove to in less then 10minutes, as well as the awesome nature preserve perfect for a morning run or afternoon walk. We plan on staying here again.

Car: recommended

Huntington Beach & Downtown Area are a 4 mile bike ride or drive along the coast hwy. On Tuesday nights Main street in Huntington is closed to traffic for a street fair right at the pier.

Newport Bay is also about 4 miles bike ride or drive in the other direction along Pacific coast Hwy. Enjoy fine dining on the Bay or just a walk along the boardwalk.

This is a perfect location for a Day at Disneyland. A 25 minute drive down Harbor Blvd. Lands you at the doorstep of the happiest place on earth without freeway driving. Legoland, Universal Studios, & Knotsberry Farm are all within striking distance.

Premier shopping at South Coast Plaza & Fashion Island are close by.

Orange County Performing Arts is 10 to 12 minutes away with many world class musicals and plays.

A day trip or overnight to Catalina Island is a good way to get out on the ocean where Dolphins, Whales, & Seals are often spotted on the Catalina Flyer. Catalina Island's town of Avalon offers many activities including Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Hiking, Bird Watching, sailing, Glass bottom boats, and much more.

There are many Golf courses in the area to choose from. Costa Mesa Golf course is a mile away.

Hollywood & the LA scene is an hours drive away but after a day of jam packed action it's nice to come back to our quiet neighborhood to relax.

LAX International airport is 45 minutes drive.

We have lived in the area for 25 years and can help you plan your stay........... :-)
