Historic Craftsman Bungalow one block away from downtown San Juan Capistrano, Los Rios Street, and the Train Depot. Views of The Mission and hills out the front, a beautifully decorated interior, and plenty of outdoor space in the backyard to make you feel at home. A short drive to beachesDisneyland, and no more than 30 minutes from John Wayne Airport make this an easy and perfect location.

The space

The Father O'Sullivan Home was built in 1929 by Clarence Lobo- Chief of the Juanenos and located in the historic Mission Hill-Mission Flats neighborhood.
The house remains in virtually original condition, and is representative of a simple, vernacular Craftsman Bungalow style house of its era. The house is listed under the Inventory of Historic and Cultural Landmarks.
Father St. John O'Sullivan arrived in San Juan Capistrano in 1910 and was the first resident priest attached to the Mission since 1886. Father O'Sullivan was instrumental in carrying on the restoration of the Mission that had been begun by the Landmarks Club in 1895. He oversaw the completion of the Serra Chapel restoration in 1922.

Chad's house was in a great location and easily accessible. The house was comfortable and the host provided all the basics that we needed. The backyard was lovely and the bedroom was delightful. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

We had the pleasure of staying at Chad’s home for the weekend. The historic house was picturesque, well maintained, and perfect for our little family. Though a cozy bungalow, the décor and aesthetics of the home made it seem larger inside than what the exterior would lead you to believe. My toddlers would probably say their favorite part of the weekend was sitting on the hammock in the back porch outside the master bedroom every morning. The bathroom was a subtle mint green with beautiful tile work. The weekend was gorgeous, though warmer than usual and without the typical coastal breeze you’d expect being close to the ocean, but the ceiling fans and the A/C unit helped manage the temperature pretty well. The house was perfectly located; a short walk to Mission San Juan Capistrano, a couple of blocks away from Old Town San Juan Capistrano and the train station, and freeway close. Chad was a pleasure to work with. He answered all of my questions prior to and during our stay, in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend this home to anyone.

Chad's home is epic. This space is classy, clean, affordable, serene, and awesomely located for a wonderful, hassle-free So Cal getaway experience. I recommend it highly but am also hoping they don't get too booked so I can come back. ;) I am very grateful to Chad for a most lovely stay.

Chad’s charming Historic Craftsman Bungalow was fantastic; front door to spacious back patio - host and logistics to the amazing location quietly tucked away just two blocks from the Old Town San Juan Capistrano. My sister and I spent 6 nights here and enjoyed it immensely. We did coffee on the back patio each morning, smiled as the bells from the historic Mission church rang a couple times a day, loved the classic kitchen and stove, and with windows open basked in the evening coastal breeze billowing through the house. This isn't a cookie-cutter condo, it’s a classic So-Cal bungalow and we so appreciated the tile and wood floors and all the details and care in maintaining this piece of local architectural and cultural history. Airbnb does lots of marketing spin about “being local” and if one home can leverage those feelings this is it. Thanks for sharing your home with us Chad.

Chad's home was exactly as described--a charming historic craftsman bungalow set in a perfect location and with more charm than you'll find in almost any home out there. It is a perfect combination of being beautifully restored to period with enough modern amenities to make you feel right at home. The home is decorated beautifully with enough anthropologie / bohemian style to make my wife and I feel like we were staying in a catalogue home! Besides all that, the homes location is perfectly nestled in the heart of San Juan Capistrano with tons of local attractions, shops and restaurants within walking distance. It is also a short drive to the coast with ease of access to Dana Point, Salt Creek, Strands and Laguna Beach that there are endless things to do. Chad was incredibly thorough and communicated everything we needed to know prior to our stay as well as stayed in touch throughout to make sure we knew everything about check-out. We will definitely look to stay here again next time we are in town and reccomend this home highly to anyone else looking for a unique and beautiful home. Thanks!
