Bait and switch

July 10, 2015

Booked this property far in advance. When we arrived we were given a Huntington Beach address that was a trailer park. It was a mobile home instead of a lakefront property. The property in the pictures has been sold over a year ago. We had to find a place for our family to stay for the week. Nightmare vacation experience. Owner says it was a mixup with the properties photos but notice it is still listed. Renter beware

Best Vacation Ever

September 6, 2013

If your looking for some down time in a wonderful area, then this lake house is the place to be. The home is so beautiful and has so many perks , such as a 18 foot Duffy boat to get around on, such as a evening dinner in the middle of the lake, a fun game of pool at the Club House, a wonderful swim in one of the three spotless pools. We loved everything about this location. Most important the staff if great, starting with the owner Steve. We enjoyed working with him so much that we extended our 1 week stay to 1 month at another location in Huntington Beach directly across from the Beach. I don't know if we will ever be ready to leave, I do know we will be back. Great Time For All. Thank you Steve for all you did for us. Rene and I cant wait to return for more relaxation and fun.

Exceeded all expectations

When i inquired on the property I had a return phone call from the owner, Steve within minutes. He was personable, helpful, and genuine. He was incredibly easy to work with. He met us at the home and showed us exactly how everything worked. We arrived about an hour early and he provided us with a rewards card and directions to the local grocery store so we could go get our food while the housekeeping service finished up. My kids and husband loved fishing off the dock, I loved staring at the beautiful view. The Duffy boat was so much fun and unlike any boat we had been in before. The swimming pools, and tennis courts were used frequently by our family. We were close enough to spend time at Laguna, San Clemente, Huntington, Newport, and La Jolla beaches. Captain Dave took us on a great tour in his Duffy boat around Newport Harbor and a visit to Balboa Island. He knew the area so well, and it made the tour so much fun. We enjoyed so much having dinner on his boat and letting him show us around. We wanted this trip to be memorable as our oldest son is leaving for 2 years on a mission for the Mormon church and we couldn't have asked for more. It was the perfect location to just be together, and we could relax. After a day at the beach the outdoor shower is just genius and the hot tub was a welcome sight. I couldn't believe how quiet and peaceful the lake was, even on the weekends. I hope this rental is available the next time I want to visit! I don't want to stay anywhere else!

Misleading location map

May 30, 2013

While the property was very nice and clean, the map on the listing page is shaded implying the property is located on the back bay of Newport Beach, "just minutes from the beaches". Actually the property is 16 miles from Newport Beach actual beach and almost 11 miles from Laguna Beach. While the surrounding area is nice and safe, it's certainly not near the ocean. I was disappointed upon arriving at the home to find how far it was from Newport Beach. Be aware that you are renting a home on a small man made lake man miles from the ocean.

Great Vacation

July 25, 2012

We loved our vacation. The house was clean and everything that was advertised. There was plenty to do. We would head to the beach for 4-5 hours a day and then come back to the house and our boys could fish on the lake, play tennis, basketball or swim in the pools on the property. The house was very clean. We would come and do this again.

Steve, the owner, was very easy to work with. We had a pleasant visit to Southern CA. Lake Forest was fairly central to all of the activities that we planned.

What a splendid five days we spent at this magnificent lake house. My boyfriend and I were looking for a few days to just relax and recharge from our busy lives. We looked at various hotels in the area, however resort fees, parking fees and noise level did not appeal to us. I made a quick inquiry to the owner Steve- he quickly responded, and made renting from him easy and enjoyable. From start to finish, Steve was available for questions-and most importantly encouraged us to feel at home. This home is actually more beautiful and exquisite in person, which is hard to believe because the website pictures are inviting and welcoming. We did not have the best weather, however the lake house is so beautiful we did not mind at all. Imagine staying in a house were you look out of a picture window facing a tranquil lake. There are TV's in every bedroom! The kitchen is better equipped than my own. There is also a deck that over looks the lake, which is breathtaking. The deck is decorated as if it could be on the cover of a magazine, it also included a heat lamp, comfortable lounge chairs and candles. And lets not forget the relaxing jacuzzi which i used nightly! The lake house is located near beaches, the airport and most desirable Orange County locations. I will look back at this vacation and think about how much fun we had taking out the boat Steve has docked at the house . We had romantic picnic's in the middle of the lake with the very tasty wine that Steve left as a welcome gift. We cannot wait unil we can come back again!

Peaceful stay on the lake

March 1, 2012

This house was great! Loved the french doors across the back of the house which afforded a fabulous view of the man made lake. My kids loved the french doors off both of their bedrooms as well. We had a boat at our disposal and used it every day to fish, joy ride and to go to the tennis courts and pools. My husband and son fished off the dock every day, though they didn't catch anything, they had fun trying. My favorite spot was on the double chaise lounge on the patio. Soaked up the sun every day! We also used the jacuzzi every night, very relaxing and fun for the kids. The tropical feel was all around us outside. Lots of plants, candles, benches, patio furniture etc. to lounge on. The host, Steve, was very acommodating and helpful, showing us around the house and taking us for our first boat tour around the lake. We had agreed to meet Steve at Noon on our check in day, but we actually arrived early at 11am and he was ready for us - perfect! After three hectic days at Disneyland, we were all ready for some r & r. All in all, we had a fantastic stay and would definitely stay here again when back in Southern CA.

Gorgeous House!

February 25, 2012

It's Southern California,so obviously we were looking for a house right by the beach. But being a local, we know the rates for a beach property and their quality just doesn't add up. We spent hours searching websites after websites, but couldn't find a single beach property that we liked. Tired and frustrated, we decided to get creative. We were not happy about it, but we started looking for properties more inland in search for better value. More bang for buck. And this property instantly stood out. We contacted the owner Steve. His response was instant, as if he was glued to his phone. We were really impressed. Being first time vacation renters, we were stepping into the unknown. We asked Steve to see the house before we confirmed our dates, and he agreed right away. He was friendly, and we knew right away he was someone we could trust. The property is in a very quiet residential community, very safe. Steve escorted us into the house, and the second we walked in our jaw dropped. The place is just WOW. Big living room, warm and cozy bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen. It has a big patio, plenty of seating, lots of sun, outdoor heater for cooler nights. Best of all ,it has it's own private dock and comes with it's own boat. Everything about this house said vacation, relax and have a great time. We signed the papers right there are then. The house is at a great location, minutes away from grocery, pharmacy and gas stations. Even if you are a super slow driver, beaches of Laguna is not more that 20 minutes. Big Irvine Spectrum mall is literally a five minutes drive. Restaurants and shops at Irvine, New Port and Costa Mesa are all within short driving distance. We spent three days in this house, and were just blessed with good weather. We spent our days basking in the sun, and stayed in the patio socializing till late at night. Next time we are going to ask Steve to just rent us the patio. It's so beautiful, we felt rest of the house is a bonus. After staying a few days at this place, our whole perspective of a dream Southern California home has changed. I would recommend this place to anybody. Especially to people coming out of state or from abroad. Don't get fooled with all the hoopla about a beach house, this is a perfect place to spend your vacation. Away from the crowd, yet minutes drive away from all the happening Orange County locations.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Everyone loves our house! You could easily spend your whole vacation there without leaving! The fishing is amazing, the boat is so much fun for sunset cruises, floating picnics or getting to the clubhouse for swimming in one of the four pools. We always have a welcome treat for our guests as well as special soaps, clean linens, paper towels, T.P., dish soap, laundry soap,etc. BBQ a nice dinner and eat outside right on the water! So luxurious...
