About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Our lovely 4 Bed,2 Bath newly remodeled home is a gem! This charming fully furnished house sits at the end of the street on a Cul-de-sac with no traffic!! We remodeled most of the house with vaulted ceilings and a tuscany flair throughout the house. The Kitchen is large and has a custom designed 'island table' with rich cherry wood and granite counter top which seats 6. Large Skylights accentuate the large chandelier pot rack that hold all that beautiful copper and all appliances are new and stainless steel. The dining room is connected and has a large round dining table which elegantly seats 6. The living room is connected to the open kitchen and large overstuffed leather chair and sofa along with flat screen T.V. There is also a standing fireplace that is 2 sided and is a 'gas-glass' fireplace that serves both living room and kitchen,.. and how fun it is to sit at the island in the kitchen with the fire going!! There are 2 bedrooms that have been remodeled with whites shutters throughout and the guest rooms have queen size beds and large mirrored closets. The master bedroom has a private bath attached. The 4th bedroom is currently being used as an office and can be used as a bedroom as well. All beds are Queen Size. We have a pullout twin bed with mattress as well.

The backyard is the best part of this house as we have remodeled and covered the patio area, making it the most lived in room of the house. With complete living room decor, large flat screen T.V. and draw curtains to control sun and ambience, this room provides comfort with luxury. The cascading waterfall jacuzzi and pool are just steps away as well as built in BBQ, with granite counter top for cooking space. There is a large patio table for those nights you wish to entertain and dine outdoors and seats 8. The gazeebo holds a circular bar which seats 6 and is another popular hangout of this house. Enjoy the pool, lounge in our resort style lounge chairs, dip in the jacuzzi, or enjoy the luxury of outdoor living at its finest.... we love spending time here and we know you will too!!

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 Costa Mesa

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!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an excellant Thanksgiving week staying in your home. The kitchen and outdoor was put to good use. Spent three days at Disneyland and coming back to soak in the hot tub was a blessing!

Thank you so much for your hospitality, it was much appreciated.

We spent 3 weeks in this wonderful home. Excellent location and close to beautiful Crystal Cove and Newport and Laguna beaches . Body boarding and surfing were a hit with the family as well as whale watching .. amazing experience.. from Balboa/Newport beach. Disney and freeways were within a short drive. Outside pool area was fantastic, great for entertaining and hanging out. Complete with bar b que and fabulous lounge area. Shops and restaurants nearby .Tim and Janis were great and were really easy to communicate with. Thoroughly recommend this property...can't wait to return.

Beautiful backyard for entertaining!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this home! The location was great, close to the beach yet affordable. The backyard was our favorite - if we were at home, the kids and grandkids were in the pool! In the evening, we all enjoyed watching the Olympics outside in the beautiful outdoor living room. There were four queen beds, which is difficult to find. FYI - there isn't central AC, so if you like the whole house cool, this may not be the house for you. However, two of the bedrooms had window air conditioners for comfortable sleeping. Janice & Tim were very easy to work with, and whatever issues came up were handled in a very timely manner. We recommend this house!

Grandparents, Parents and Teenagers shared a wonderful eight days together. We had a surprise 50th anniversary party one afternoon with friends from surrounding areas. Wonderful! Disneyland and local beaches so close by. Crystal Cove's beauty and great restaurant must be seen and enjoyed. The swordfish at Cafe Zooleau in Laguna is the best in the world. We look forward to returning.
