About Bruce Gleason

We are a married couple with an unattached beautiful guest house behind the main house. We think we have a very pleasant place to stay for up to five people comfortably.

Bruce Gleason purchased this house in 2004

Why Bruce Gleason chose Villa Park

This guest house is located on a very special piece of property with total isolation from our neighbors. It has double sided windows and double dry-walled rooms to keep out any noise from the outside. We take pride in keeping a clean and comfortable temporary home for our guests.

What makes this house unique

Relax on our heated patio and enjoy the Jacuzzi anytime during your stay. Small pets accepted. Please notify us if you are having other guests who are not staying at the property come over to visit. Children under 10 are free.

We are close to shopping centers, gold courses, 15 minutes from Disneyland, 90 minutes from the mountains and 20 minutes from the beach. There is a $49 per person/per night fee for each additional person over 10 years of age. (less if booked for more than 7 days). If you have guests staying over only part-time just make the reservation without the additional person, then pay for the extra guests when you arrive.

comfort and convenience near Disney

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, comfortable and relaxing. They were able to accommodate our party of 6. It was so nice to be able to cook for ourselves and do laundry. A house for the same price as a hotel room. About 12 minutes to Disney. Tons of shops and restaurants nearby.

The owners went above and beyond to help us. Our first day of vacation, my sister and her boys were hit by a drunk driver. Though we could have taken a taxi, they took me and my mother to the hospital, and offered to pick us up. Everyone was fine in the end. When we had to pick up a new rental, they offered to give us a ride.

Lovely property and wonderful owners!

I’ve found my home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful property was exactly what I’ve been looking for. The grounds are relaxing and beautiful, the fresh oranges are delicious, the house is very comfortable and spacious, and the owners are very attentive to your needs and give you privacy at the same time. My only advice is when it’s shower time, make sure to pull the handle out for water so you don’t have to call or text Bruce in the wee morning hours. I have found my home away from home and look forward to many more stays in my future.

Lovely setting!

  • 5 of 5

This was just a beautiful setting! The photos do not do it justice. It was perfect for our family in town for daughters Chapman graduation!

Charming residence with great outdoors

  • 5 of 5

I picked this guest house because of the outdoor photos and those didn't even come close to the charm the patio had. There was a shaded seating area, a bbq area with umbrellas, a jacuzzi and another large seating area surrounded by a pergola and curtains. The house had everything you could imagine: it was not just stocked with the bare minimum but it had everything from iron and board, hairdryer, extra soaps and other small items. The bathroom consisted of a gorgeous dual shower, 2 bedrooms (one with a king and a full, the other with a queen size bed), large living room with TV/dvd and large kitchen with anything you may need. We were able to pick fresh oranges each morning for a freshly squeezed juice and the aroma of the orange trees surrounded us outdoors. Even the animal lovers could have fun watching the wild bunnies that are living on the property. There is a track behind their property to which we had access for exercise before and after school hours for the active folks. The owners were very friendly and helpful with suggestions for dinner.

If we were to return to the LA area, I would go out of my way to return to this guest house. It was most charming and comfortable and beautiful. Well done!

My Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This immaculate cottage, nestled in an orange grove, contains everything you might need to make your stay comfortable, whether your stay is for 3 days or for three months, as was ours.

While the photos are accurate, quite honestly, they do not do this property justice. For example, the living room is much bigger and more comfortable than it appears and the shower has to be experienced to be believed. The kitchen is equipped with everything one might need to whip up a quick breakfast or to create a many-course meal. The bedrooms are quiet, comfortable and have enormous storage.

In spite of being set back far enough from the busy street that one never hears any road noise, this site is within easy walking distance to the town center with its many coffee shops, a library, drug store, huge grocery store, several banks, a fantastic bakery and much more.

Because your hosts are on site,, they make you feel like honored guests without being intrusive. We cannot wait to return. This truly becomes your home away from home

Quiet Oasis Close to Orange County Attractions

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are in Orange County every six to eight weeks. Having tired of chain hotels, we've sought other accommodations. While searching VRBO's website, this property popped up, but, dang, it was always booked!!!! FINALLY there was a vacancy, and man, was it worth the wait. Well appointed, quiet, central to many attractions and activities, it's the real deal. We couldn't have been happier with our stay.
