Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Chad & Alex were both warm and welcoming. They have a lovely home in a very convenient location in San Juan Capistrano with all the amenities you'd expect in a 5 star hotel. I highly recommend a stay and would certainly go back if they'd have me.

  • Alex and Chad are wonderful hosts! "Make yourselves at home!" Due to the odd circumstances of my visit they were very flexible and not put off by changes. Their home is lovely, they are very friendly and know what social boundaries are. They were never intrusive and when they needed to tend to their affairs they told me. I was even included in a small dinner party with some of their friends, which I really enjoyed! I truly wish I had been able to spend more time with them and if I return to this area, I will!

  • Hey very good stay with Chad and Alex. The bed was comfortable and clean the room quiet . And Chad was good company with great restaurant and driving suggestions. Thanks Alex for the bathrobe that you set out in our private bathroom:-) Very thoughtful:-)

    January 2014
  • We had a pleasant stay with Chad And Alex. The room was quiet and clean. We spent most of our time visiting family nearby but Chad made us feel welcome and we enjoyed chatting with Alex in the morning. All in all, a comfortable stay.

  • Chad and Alex are great hosts. They both have sparkling personalities and were a treat to get to know. Lovely, quiet , peaceful home and guests who were easy to get along with-what more could you ask for.

    November 2013
  • My stay with Chad and Alexandra was very short and sweet, I arrived at night, met Chad, settled in to a lovely room, and left very early before anyone was up. I must say I was VERY comfortable, the room was nice, the bathroom was lovely I was made very welcome and I was comfortable. The only question I have is " is it really 10 minutes to the beach? " ( this is a joke of course ).
    highly recommend staying here.

  • Chad and Alex are super friendly and laid back. They are non-intrusive but also game to sit around a table and share ideas and travel stories. their place is clean and in a very quite and safe neighborhood. They made us feel like part of their family and helped us with reccomendations for things to do/see in the area. I would happily host chad and Alex or stay with them again in the future. we only wished we'd had more time to stay and get to know them more as we were out at the nearby beaches most of our trip! thanks again Chad and Alex :-)

    October 2013
  • Chad and Alex are very laid back, friendly, kind and generous. They are happy to hang with you you or let you do your own thing! (I got to do both during my stay).

    The house is spotless, the sheets are clean and smell great and the bathroom is sparkling. What more can one ask? The location is easy to get to, convenient to the beaches, San Diego or Orange County attractions.

    Overall, an excellent experience! THANK YOU!

  • Chad and Alex are a lovely couple and great hosts. Loved hearing about their travels to Europe. Bed was super comfortable with lots of storage drawers underneath. Slept great, nice quiet location. Easy to get to Beach, Disneyland, and south Orange County attractions.
    Large dining area for meals and good size bedroom and bathroom. Shower had good water pressure and was appropriate for taller guests:)

My girlfriend Alex and I live in the small historic town of San Juan Capistrano, California where she works as an ER nurse and I am a marketing consultant. We were first exposed to AirBnB when we moved to the South of France for six months in 2013. Since then, we stayed in nearly 20 AirBnB's in 7 countries...and every single experience was amazing! We truly value what AirBnB has to offer and we want to be apart of their legacy to "share the world." We are not only travel enthusiasts but love meeting new and interesting people. As 'old souls', we enjoy immersing ourselves in other cultures. Our other interests include bicycling, wine tasting, cooking, hiking, camping, skiing, and playing dominoes/gin rummy together in the strangest of places. And what we learned from traveling the world: "SEIZE THE MOMENT!"
