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!!

Awsome stay with my family
We went to the beach, Disneyland and hit some great restaurants! It was a great stay!
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 Outdated.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 Whole place is old and outdated, carpets stained.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.
My husband and I enjoyed this home so much. It was even nicer than advertised. There were so many special touches and a beautiful pool area. You are close to everything!
The hosts couldn't be nicer and were always available and very helpful if needed. The neighborhood is pretty and quiet. The kitchen was wonderful to cook in!! It was even more than we hoped for and will definitely want to stay here again. Thank you so much for letting us live in your beautiful home for a week!

Thank you so much for choosing our home for your stay. We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves and we look forward to your return.!
Overall we really enjoyed our time here. I would say that the pool and hot tub are much nicer than the pics show. There really is only 4 bedrooms with spots for 8 people to sleep. There is one couch in the house and a couch and loveseat outside but none of them are all that comfortable to sleep on. There are NO bikes to ride. The info on the house says there are bikes to ride to go down to the beach or wherever, but there are only a couple bikes outside that are all rusty (as in not usable) and are not even in working condition. The house was a great place to hang out in, cook, lay by the pool and relax. The outdoor area and kitchen are definitely the best parts of the house. There are 2 window air conditioners that are in 2 different bedrooms and that is it, the whole house is not air conditioned.
We are so happy you enjoyed yourselves. We had taken down the 4 bikes from the website after your arrival, so I apologize for the inconvenience.. We have a pullout twin bed with mattress, and the sofa to be used for smaller children, if you need room for 10.
Our guests leave great reviews in our hospitality book as well, and the pool and outdoor living area is always their favorite.
Thanks again for the choosing our home and we home you will come back again soon!
Great house close to everything!
This was a fantastic house with plenty of indoor and outdoor entertainment spaces. It was even decorated for the holidays! We would definitely return.
Thank you so much and we are so happy you enjoyed yourselves! Please come back again soon!
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!
