About Janis Graber
My name is Janis Ostlund Graber and I love my home! I am a licensed real estate agent and have enjoyed this profession for over 25 years. Having real estate experience has proved quite helpful while renting our properties and has allowed me the tools I need to provide my guests with the upmost care and support in the vacation rental process.
Why Janis Graber chose
Our house is a home! We are close to everything. 5 minutes to the beach or bay. 5 minutes to the airport 5 minutes to the grocery store, 5 minutes to the nearest restaurant or bar, 5 minutes to church, 5 minutes to the drug store, 5 minutes to Starbucks, 5 minutes to the gas station, 5 minutes to the freeways, 5 minutes to the movie theaters, 5 minutes to shopping,.... I can go on and on!! We really are in the heart of everything!!
What makes this House unique
When you stay with us, you will feel like you are home. Our guests rave about our outdoor living area with the covered patio. You can relax and watch our big screen T.V. or a few feet away soak in the Jacuzzi or swim in our pool. Enjoy the gazebo/bar as well. Cooking in our remodeled kitchen is another favorite of our guests. With the large 'table island' cooking has never been more fun. We have our house completely stocked with everything from condiments, spices and soups. You are free to use it all. You can even use our good china... it is a shame to waste it! Our families always feel warm and welcomed!!

Great Back Bay location
We really enjoyed our stay in the Back Bay. We came down for a Thanksgiving retreat and a wedding and couldn’t be more pleased with everything. The location was perfect for us and we were able to get in some nice walks along the Back Bay. Shopping was very close and we had everything we needed. Can’t wait to come down and visit again.
We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves! Please come back again soon!
Janis and Tim
We absolutely loved our stay! The house was incredibly decorated and Janis was very nice to work with. The house had everything we needed and more. The kids (3 and 11) never left the pool and jacuzzi. We spent all if our time in the outdoor living area. Costa mesa is a great place to getaway. Close to all of the beaches and attractions without too much traffic and people. Large grocery store (Ralphs) 5 minutes away and great restaurants within 5-10 minutes. A few dive bars and a night club close by also. Great for the whole family, young or "seasoned"! We will be back!
From Massachusetts to Costa Mesa
Overall this house was very nice and in a great location. We enjoyed our stay. However there were problems with the pool since the day we checked in. The pool guy came the next day to fix it and then the day after that it stopped working again, which was Fourth of July and we had a whole day planned around a cookout at the pool. Good thing my uncle was there.. he was on the phone with the home owner for about two hours reprogramming the entire pool, chlorinated it and got it working in time for the cookout. If he wasnt there to fix it i would be very frustrated. Also some of the lights in the house were not working, in the kitchen and (master) bedrooms it was very dark once the sun went down. Microwave also didn’t work and the homeowner ordered one online which was shipped and my husband had to setup. Overall a very nice house with nice features. I just feel like the owners should take some time to fix things that need to be fixed so the guests don’t feel responsible or frustrated at things not working properly. Homeowners were nice and easy to contact when problems arose, they helped as much as they could over the phone which was great. I would stay here again :)
Thank you so much for your review and choosing our home. Unfortunately the previous guest did not follow our pool rules and decided on their own to turn the heat up in the pool as well as the jacuzzi. We have reminder signs for these guidelines as well as a lease they sign off on this item. Unfortunately the previous guests didn't think they needed to follow these rules regarding the pool and they turned the pool green. This is a beautiful salt water pool that does not need to be heated, as we have the dark bottom pool to retain heat. It cost us over $500.00 to fix the pool and we did NOT charge the guests, although it was 100% their responsibility. We never know if a microwave or appliance will go out. It was working when we left. As well as when lightbulbs burn out...which we never know when this will happen and if the guests would let us know we have maintenance to replace lightbulbs. Unfortunately these things will happen, and we are sorry it happened during your visit. We hope you will come back again, and we will waive your cleaning fee of $150.00.! Thank you again for choosing our home.
My family truly enjoyed our stay in this vacation hone it was clean and well kept. The check in and out was fast and easy and it was a perfect location for us!! Thanks again to the owners!!
Awsome stay with my family
We went to the beach, Disneyland and hit some great restaurants! It was a great stay!
We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves. Please come back again soon!
Old house. Too many personal items left. Lighting system is a nightmare. Outdated. Left earlier the
This was a nightmare. Place looked like a museum. The person responsible for showing us how the lights and grill was operated, told us to call the owner or figure out alone. We tried to sit outside by the pool at night but it was dark, we could not figure it out how to turn the light on. Only 2 rooms have aircondition. A lot of personal items everywhere. Main bed in Master bedroom makes noises when one tries to sleep. There was a mouse or rat on the roof. Whole place is old and outdated, carpets stained. The kitchen is ok. We left and moved to a hotel earlier. We only stayed in the house 2 days. I wish we have had given a better explanation on how the very complicated and old fashioned lighting system operated. Before we arrived to the hoyse we called the owner twice but he never responded. They were fast collecting the money. This was a bad experience for us and our 9 year old daughter.
We are so very sorry to hear about your stay. We have had stellar reviews in the past. We do let everyone know there are only 2 air conditioners in the back 2 bedrooms . We have numerous overhead lights and have never had anyone complain about the lights. The only thing we feel is accurate is the carpet will need to be redone and that is scheduled for in the fall.
Our agent who meets and greets our guests with keys had to wait for several hours and this was quite disrespectful, as we take great pride in meeting and showing the guests the house.
Our repeat guests and reviews speak for themselves.
And as an agent for a major hotel in the past, we learned there will always be guests who will never be happy.
Our lovely home is only a 5 minute drive to the beach or harbor and the lovely "Back Bay" Kayaking on the harbor at the Newport Aquatic Center is one of my favorite things to do and is a 5 minute drive to the harbor, where rentals for kayaks or stand up board paddles is quite popular. We are a 5 minute drive to Balboa Island, Balboa Peninsula, Fashion Island Outdoor Shopping Mall, and South Coast Shopping Mall, We are a 20 minute drive to Disneyland, Knotsberry Farm, Angel Baseball Stadium, and Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific and the famous Queen Mary Ship. We are only 45 minutes to Hollywood and Universal Studios.
A great drive south to Laguna Beach and Dana Point for its many great seafood restaurants and Laguna Beach for its famous Artist's Colony.
We are only 1 hour and half from San Diego and its Seaworld, Balboa Park and Coronado Island.
We are close to several top rated golf courses and less than 2 hours from Big Bear Mountain for camping, hiking boating, and winter sports.
There is so many things to see and do in this area, you could do something differant every day!
Come experience all southern California has to offer and enjoy our home of comfort and luxury!
