Luxury Nestled in the San Juan Hills

Luxury Nestled in the San Juan Hills

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 7, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Villa San Juan Capistrano is a 3 bedroom home nestled in the rolling San Juan Hills, in a quiet gated golf course community that is surrounded by fairways and wildflowers.

We have a second website that has a lot more photos of the Villa and the surrounding area if you would like more than this listing shows. it is VillaSanJuanCapistrano with a . com at the end.

It is conveniently located one mile from the I-5 freeway, a scenic 15 minute drive from Orange County / John Wayne (SNA) Airport.

The naturally landscaped hillsides shield the Villa from the freeway so you will not experience any traffic noise which is common with many of the view homes in the area.

The Villa is located in the southern portion of San Juan Capistrano which experiences daily westerly winds which eliminates the need for air conditioning 99% of the year. However, the Villa has forced air heating and conditioning if you prefer a temperature controlled environment.

Our home is located far enough away from the coast, only 3 miles, so we rarely experience morning fog and wake up to mostly sunny days followed by cool nights. The adjacent cities of Dana Point, San Clemente & Laguna Beach typically experience foggy mornings and overcast days at certain times of the year due to their closer proximity to the coastline. The average temperatures in San Juan range from a high of 74 degrees to a low average of 51 degrees year round. Year-round we have relatively low humidity, which is why you will not get any mosquito bites on this vacation.

The gourmet kitchen is equipped with cooking or hosting in mind with a Wolfe 6-burner gas range, Bosch dishwasher, wine cooler, built-in Subzero refrigerator, and every possible cooking appliance and utensil you might need to prepare a memorable meal which can be served in the cozy dining room or at bar stool seating at extra large granite counter top. Filling up the kitchen with groceries not only saves you money on meals, but it is enjoyable to cook in this kitchen or BBQ outside with a great view of the hills.

The home has a beautifully landscaped private yard with a tropical resort feel. A hammock, BBQ, umbrellas, heat lamps and comfy furnishings make this the perfect home for small gatherings or medium size parties or just relaxing, anytime day or night.

There are also over 75 restaurants in San Juan Capistrano, many who deliver. The Villa also has separate interior laundry room and guestroom bath on the first floor with Bosch washer and dryer. A great advantage for guests because it allows you to pack lighter since you will not need as many clothes.

The interior is bright and sunny with lots of windows and San Juan Hill views. The ceilings are high with an open floor plan so when your cooking you can still converse with your guests as well as see the 47' high-definition flat screen TV in the living room. The Villa comes with full cable TV including HBO, Cinemax, and hundreds of channels.

The dining room has high-vaulted ceilings with mission-style furniture that comfortably seats six.

The master bedroom suite is on the first floor and has a fireplace, a very comfortable pillow top California King bed with Egyptian 600 thread count sheets, sliding glass doors to the private backyard, 12' ceiling with a fan that allows for very comfortable napping or sleeping with the windows open or closed.

It also has a flat screen HD TV with full cable service including HBO. In the master dressing area you will find a marble & glass shower stall, a state-of-the art, self-cleaning Jacuzzi tub, double granite sinks, private toilet area and an awesome cherry wood walk-in closet.

The second floor includes another master suite with a high end resort beach theme. It has private shower and dressing area, a separate toilet / bath / shower room, high-vaulted ceilings, ceiling fan and a very comfy queen bed with luxury sheets, a cozy comforter and lots of down pillows.

Also located on the second floor are two spacious office work spaces with a computer and printer with wireless high speed internet, task lighting and ergonomic desk chairs. A third 32' TV with games, DVD, & VCR is located in this room with two large wing back chairs for watching shows or reading. The home also offers a library of over 100 books if you are an avid reader. The hammock in the yard is also a lovely place to read.

A very comfortable Murphy queen size bed is hidden inside the beautifully paneled walls and will comfortably sleep two additional guests who can easily access the adjacent bedroom's bathroom.

The Villa is child friendly and well-behaved pet friendly with beautiful travertine stone and wood flooring throughout and fully fenced yard. A portable crib, high chair and pet beds are available upon request.

Less than 100 feet from our Villa is a gated swimming pool, with a 24 hour a day - 7 days a week heated Jacuzzi spa with dressing areas, showers and restrooms.

We also provide everything you need for some fun in the sun: Bicycles, beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards and picnic supplies.

Also,within the same area is a well-equipped gym with%2

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5
The Villa was so much more than we expected. The owner instantly made us feel at home. The detail through out the house made a great impression on us, such as little chocolates left on the pillows, water bottles conveniently in the rooms, holiday decorations, delicious cookies and our choice of cold a beverage. We enjoyed everything about it, from the outstanding kitchen with the best oven, to the relaxing hammock out back. It has all of the necessities and accommodations one would need. They also provided us with a portable crib and high chair for our little one. Only thing we would do differently next time is pack lighter. The Villa is just superb.

Perfect Vacation in Gorgeous Villa in San Juan Hills

  • 5 of 5
Villa San Juan Capistrano is definitely a beautiful "home away from home". And, luxury describes the Villa perfectly! From the moment we were greeted by Ginger and Charlie and from the moment we walked in, we felt very welcomed! There was no doubt in our minds that we had chosen the perfect accommodations for our vacation! Not to mention the wonderful and freshly baked cookies Ginger had awaiting for our arrival and the cold beverages in the fridge! We couldn't have asked for a more heartfelt welcome!

The tastefully decorated villa offers the perfect open layout for vacationing with family and friends as it offers very comfortable furniture in the living and dining rooms and not to mention the comfy beds as well as the high quality bed and bath linens (and robes) that are provided!

Paradise is the perfect word to describe the charming and quaint village of San Juan Capistrano as well as our accommodations.

We enjoyed our days going into town and enjoying the beautiful bougainvillea filled hillsides, walking and sightseeing in "Los Rios Historic District" or simply enjoyed some of our days lounging by the swimming pool area and taking in the breathtaking views of the San Juan Capistrano hills! Other days were spent visiting and enjoying the beautiful and nearby beaches of Dana Point and San Clemente, both just a mere 5 to 15 minute drive away.

Although we did not use the bikes, the cooler and beach towels did come in quite handy.

Our evenings were centered around planning and enjoying a cooked meal in the well equipped kitchen as we were all able to participate in the preparation of our meal around the spacious granite top counter with bar stool chairs while enjoying cool beverages (or a glass of wine) or simply barbecuing while enjoying the serene water feature and relaxing in the comfortable furniture provided in the towering palm and flower filled patio at the Villa!

Ginger and Charlie are both very attentive as well as very accommodating from the very first moment of the booking process of the villa until the day of our departure.

It was the perfect vacation for our family of 6.

We had a wonderful stay and we thank you, Ginger and Charlie, for welcoming us into your beautiful villa as we hope to be back next September as San Juan Capistrano left us with still so much more to do and see and we so thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful home!

BETTER THAN ADVERTISED

  • 5 of 5
The Villa was top notch in every way with a gourmet kitchen. The owners were nearby and very accomodating. The location in a quiet neighborhood with gentle breezes and nearby hiking trails with ocean views was unbeatable. Can't wait to go back.

Wonder family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 stayed at Ginger and Charlie's villa for 4 wonderful weeks. We were greeted with warm cookies and milk for the kids and our favorite red wine for the adults. The villa is beautifully appointed with a great layout, lovely furniture and fantastic kitchen. The photos don't do it justice!! It is a gorgeous home. The kitchen is fully stocked and we greatly appreciated all of the "staples" that were there when we arrived. The beds are very comfortable with lovely linens & pillows! Lots of extras like beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, bikes and beach umbrella. We also enjoyed the games and puzzles that were there to use -- a few puzzles were put together and many spirited games of "Jenga" were played. The community is very quiet but at the same time close to the I-5 for easy access. We took our morning coffee on the patio everyday, listening to the birds and watching the hummingbirds go from flower to flower. If you need anything, the owners are nearby and are very helpful. We have already booked again for next year. I would recommend this property in an instant.

San Juan Hills Villa

  • 5 of 5
San Juan Hills is an excellent choice for a vacation (great location) with variety! We were truly impressed with this gorgeous setting and warm hospitality of the hosts, Charlie and Ginger Nelson. The weather, of course, was reliably perfect so we got the chance to enjoy all the amenities of the villa: bike riding to the beach or town, sunning at the pool or kick back at the villa, wonderful outdoor cafes, walks in the hills above the villa, quick trips to theme parks or entertaining friends in our own private oasis! We already have booked another stay! 5-star quality inside and out!

Location

Activity and Interests

Our home is located within the San Juan Hills Country Club: Orange County's best golf value nestled in the rolling hills of San Juan Capistrano, the facility includes a Championship Par 71 Golf Course with a state of the art Driving Range, and new Sports Bar & Grill.

The Golf Course's Country Club also has large Banquet Facilities available for wedding receptions, celebrations or business conferences.

San Juan Capistrano is well known as an equestrian destination with many stables and boarding facilities. With over 53 miles of local trails and the Olympic Field Trials, San Juan truly has something to offer every equestrian.

We are probably one of the only cities with a hitching rail and corral with shady eucalyptus trees and a water trough AT THE GOLF COURSE.

Oh, and horse riders get happy-hour drink prices all day year-round in the Golf Course sports bar. For more information on boarding or riding check out the internet.

By now you I am sure you can see that San Juan Capistrano is a small town with a big reputation. This historic rarity is full of history, equestrian and mystery. The gateway of the Gold Coast is known for its rich Native American history, famous missions, and the world-renowned annual migration of cliff swallows that travel from Argentina. Home of the state’s oldest neighborhood, this birthplace of Orange County provides a wonderful adventure. Enjoy local tourist sites such as the San Juan Capistrano Mission, the train depot, the oldest neighborhood in Orange County (Los Rios District), downtown dining and shopping, antiques galore, and many annual festivals.

The city developed around the San Juan Capistrano mission. The mission is famous for the swallows who leave on Oct 23 (St. John's day) and return each year on March 19. (St. Joseph's day).

The Serra chapel is one of the oldest buildings still in use in the entire state. It is known as the "Jewel of the Missions" because it is such a beautiful mission and area. San Juan Capistrano has many antique shops and historic buildings area.

The Los Rios District lies directly across the railroad tracks from the Capistrano Depot and is the oldest neighborhood in California. The forty homes that remain here include three original adobe structures.

Most of the homes are private residences, but there are many businesses open to the public. This area provides a relaxing and enchanting experience for locals and tourists alike. To walk the streets of the Los Rios District is to recapture the tranquillity of the slower pace of life that existed before the turn of the century.

Zoomars Petting is home to hundreds of friendly animals to feed, pet, love and learn from. There are goats, emus, llamas, donkeys, alpacas, sheep, geese, ducks, guinea pigs and a bunny patch. After petting the animals, youngsters can saddle up for a pony ride or hop aboard the miniature train. At the front of the property is the century-old Olivares House, listed on the National Registry. Behind it sits an 1890’s bathhouse and picnic area available for birthday parties or family gatherings.

Nearby communities within a few miles boast world-famous beaches, whale watching, and day trips to Catalina Island. You are only 5 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Doheny & San Clemente State Beaches and Dana Point harbor, where you can rent boats, jet skis, go whale and dolphin watching.

Everything you need for some fun in the sun is provided: Bicycles, beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards and picnic supplies which leaves you more of your vacation budget for all the things you want to do.

There is an awesome fireworks show in town and at the Harbor every 4th of July. During the holidays, there is a boat parade of lights in the harbor.

The Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre (formerly Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre) is located in Irvine, 14 miles north of SJC. It is the larage amphitheater in Orange County. It is the summer home of the Pacific Symphony Orchestra.It is also home to the annual KROQ Weenie Roast and many, many concerts and festivals.

Theme parks such as Disneyland, Sea World, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios, Sea World Parks, and Legoland, are all within 45 minutes to 1 hour drive.

There are also numerous five star resorts nearby such as the Ritz Carlton, St Regis and the Montage for spa treatments if you so desire. The surrounding areas of the Dana Point Harbor, Laguna Beach and San Clemente have some fabulous restaurants if you don’t want to be creative in the state-of-the-art stainless steel kitchen.
