All the amenities of home while enjoying all the attractions of the OC!
Welcome to your Home Away from Home! Orange County is the place to come if you are looking for fun, warm weather, family activities, and beaches! Home to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm, not to mention miles of beautiful coastlines, you will find our vacation property an inviting and comfortable home base for all of your family's adventures! If you are bringing your family to Orange County, you will certainly love staying here!
Spend the day at one of the local beaches (including Doheny, San Clemente, and Laguna), only 10 to 20 minutes away. It's under 30 minutes to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Mission San Juan Capistrano, the elegant South Coast Plaza,
and the charming town of Laguna Beach. If you're up for a slightly longer drive, more world-class beaches and family destinations are only an hour away in San Diego, including attractions such as San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and Balboa Park. The popular sights of LA and Hollywood can also be reached in about an hour. Don't feel like driving? The convenient and accessible Surfsider train departs from nearby San Juan Capistrano to multiple stations in San Diego or Los
Angeles. Additional destinations abound, including apple-picking and delicious pies in Julian (95 miles) during the fall months or sledding and shopping in Lake Arrowhead (80 miles) during the winter.
The picturesque city of Mission Viejo is one of the safest and most welcoming communities in the US. With over 280 sunny days per year, your family can enjoy all of the aspects that resulted from careful urban planning: scenic walking paths (one begins only steps from the property), playgrounds and parks, wide streets, easy parking, and convenient shopping. Walking, jogging, and biking are popular hobbies among the locals, especially around the beautiful Mission Viejo Lake.
If you decide to stay 'home,' you will enjoy three spacious living areas,
including a game room equipped with Wii, bumper pool, and a foosball table; an entertainment room with a flatscreen TV, surround-sound, and movie channel access; and a sitting room for family chats next to a cozy fireplace. The large, sparkling pool is solar-heated March through October, and will provide hours of fun, while the Jacuzzi can be used year-round and is a place to relax after a long day of sight-seeing. The house has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as two inside dining areas, an outdoor patio dining set, BBQ, and covered porch.
This home is centrally located in Mission Viejo. You will be able to walk to many restaurants, including California Pizza Kitchen and Panera Bread Cafe. Shopping is within walking distance, with a Ralph's, Trader Joe's, and Vons Pavilions close by. An updated, popular bowling alley and well-equipped, modern library are also just a short walk away.

About Christie McMahon
We are a family of four: two teachers and two boys, ages 10 and 8. We like to travel during our summers off, so come enjoy our home while we are away!
Christie McMahon purchased this House in 2014
Why Christie McMahon chose Mission Viejo
Mission Viejo is such a great place to raise a family: safe, warm, and close to many fun attractions. My husband grew up just around the corner, going to Disneyland, biking in the orange orchards, and surfing at the beach as a kid.
What makes this House unique
Our home is cozy, yet spacious; comfortable yet attractive; close to many fun activities and restaurants, yet private for your family's relaxation. It is central to many of the attractions in Southern California; you can visit San Diego, LA, Disneyland, and the beach in just a few days span. Along with the photos, I've written captions to share all the ways that we enjoy our home--things we hope you will enjoy too!

Fabulous house! Had a great time here, everything we could want. Only wish the weather was warmer, but we can't fault the owners for that. Very kid friendly, large, comfortable, fully equipped kitchen, plenty of linens and hosts that are easy to reach when needed. Can't wait to stay here again.
Surpassed All Expectations
Our week's stay with 3 or our grandchildren surpassed all expectations. A great family home. Comfortable beds, nice linens, plenty of towels and a huge washer and dryer. Everything and more in a kitchen. Games, TVs (we didn't need to use), beach and pool toys and a BIG, WONDERFUL POOL....that helped make the trip. Easy access to the "5" and convenient to SD, Disney and the beaches. We hope to return soon with other grandchildren.
Great vacation home!
I love this Home great pool, nice Jacuzzi,game rooms comfortable beds, plenty of room. My son loved the basketball hoop and pool hoop. A whole book with instructions for the house made it much easier on us knowing what the house rules are and even how to use remotes. Well organized. There is a bit of confusion on phone contact.... best to email thru this app. We would definitely rent again.
Wonderful for a family stay
The had a pack & play and a booster chair that were perfect for the young one, beach & pool toys for the 5 year old and a hot tub for the grandparents. Great location between Disneyland and the San Diego Zoo. All in all a wonderful meeting place for our family. Mahalo!
Great Property! Very cozy and homey.
This was our second time staying at this property. It's very clean, cozy and convenient walking distance to stores and restaurants. The kitchen is well appointed and the owner was very responsive. We highly recommend this VRBO!
A great house and a wonderful time
We thank the owners of this property for how well appointed and maintained their property is. We appreciated the care we felt the owners had put into making their guests feel at home and comfortable with all amenities needed for a vacation. We had a great time at the beach, the pool, Disneyland and visiting with relatives. The house completed our wonderful experience. Thank you so much for being so thoughtful!
