I had another wonderful stay at Joe's place when my work brought me back to the area. He is a most accommodating host and made me feel welcome despite this being a last minute booking with my somewhat crazy work schedule. The ensuite and condo were very comfortable, clean and pristine. Joe cooked wonderful meals, and packed me lunch, which was much appreciated since I often find myself not having time to leave work to get something to eat. Thanks again Joe!
Michael is a truly superb guest. He is friendly and great to talk to. Clean and respectful. I really enjoyed hosting him and he is welcome back any time! Very highly recommended to any Airbnb hosts. 5 Starts +!!
Once again I had an amazing time at Joe's. This home and the area are beautiful and perfect for my needs. It is a superb value in paradise. I love the fresh ocean breeze, the convenience and being so close to everything. The weather was perfect even in November. Everything worked perfectly including the fast wifi and the washer and dryer. I really like the space, very clean and modern, peaceful and quiet with simple decor, bright and airy. The two bathrooms are very convenient and I enjoyed watching the beautiful California sunset on the patio. I heard great things about Airbnb and I really wanna thank Airbnb for putting me in touch with an amazing host like Joe. He truly created a unique and fun luxury vacation for me. I will definitely take advantage of this location or other Joe's locations whenever I am in town. I hope they will be available.

I recently visited beautiful Orange County and I was so lucky that I decided to stay in Joe's gorgeous and spacious two bedroom apartment. It was a awesome, unforgettable and unique vacation. Better the Ritz Carlton or the Montage or any 5 star resorts.
Joe had been nothing but kind and welcoming. Upon my arrival, he gave me a tour of the apartment and included a list of restaurants and activities to do in the area, which I found to be very helpful. Joe's electronic guide of Orange County, Los Angeles and San Diego was very helpful and always at my fingertips! I quickly felt like an insider in Orange County.
At Joe's, I found a quiet and comfortable oasis. I had privacy, peace, lots of space. The decor is understated, clean and soothing. The beds were very comfortable and I slept really well. The kitchen was well organized, fully equipped with everything you may need. The TVs work great with tons of channels, free movies, TV shows and music channels. The condo is located near the heart of everything and the complex is gorgeous and very secure with a clean and beautiful pool Jacuzzi, and fitness center. After visiting LA, I learned that parking in Southern California can be a nightmare but parking here was easy and convenient.
The location is perfect, central between San Diego and Los Angeles and close to everything. There are so many great stores, restaurants and movie theaters next door. The beach is very close and beautiful!! I went to nearby San Clemente, Laguna Beach and Newport Beach and really enjoyed. I also shopped at the nearby Irvine Spectrum. Disneyland was 15-20 minutes away.
I noticed that other guests had raved about Joe's cooking. I asked Joe if he would cook one breakfast for me and he kindly agreed and visited. It was wonderful, beautiful presentation, delicious!
Joe's concierge was so helpful and rented me a beautiful car at an unbeatable price. I saved over one hundred dollars. Joe's concierge also arranged a free VIP Dior makeup session next door. It was a blast! Diana is a lovable and genius make up artist. She spent two hours with me, and I received free makeup and an awesome consultation. Joe's concierge also arranged a free $25 Macy's shopping gift card for me after I had a not great experience shopping at Macy's in Fashion Island.
Joe was a marvelous host. He was always responsive and helpful when I called him and needed advice or assistance as I was new to the area. He tailor made my vacation based on my needs and thought of every detail including buying my favorite tea and favorite juice.
I will definitely use one of Joe's locations for my next visits and hope they are available. The only drawback was leaving but I liked this so much that I am now considering moving to Orange County. I felt at home and was really pampered and treated like a VIP!
Vanessa is an amazing guest and awesome person. 5 stars plus!!
This was the second time I've stayed for an extended period with Joe and it was just as nice as the first time. He is a charming host and really goes the extra mile for his guests. I brought my wife along on this trip and Joe went out of his way to help her get around and look after her when I had to work. My wife has severe arthritis in her hips and knees and he was very kind in getting her tea and food when she wasn't feeling up to going out. He also found us an inexpensive wheel chair rental so we could get around some of the places we wanted to visit while we were there. I unfortunately didn't get to spend as much time at the apartment as I would have liked, the pool and hot tub were wonderful last time I was there, I would have liked to have hung out there some.
The area is beautiful and this trip my wife and I got out to the local movie theater which was very convenient. We also got to the Cheesecake factory for our anniversary dinner while we were there. As on my last trip Joe was very helpful in accommodating my erratic schedule and my need to extend the trip last minute. He made wonderful omelets for breakfast with a variety of tasty and healthy ingredients. My wife and I both really enjoyed the breakfasts Joe made.
Here's what my wife had to say: :)
Joe went above and beyond. We liked the convenience. The place is clean with friendly atmosphere and a great host. Joe is thoughtful, friendly and goes go out of his way for his guests. Joe made us feel welcome and made us feel like this was our home. He is very welcoming.
He is knowledgeable about the area and gives us directions and if he doesn't know, he looks it up for us. I also like being able to watch all the old shows at Joe's, like Mary Tyler Moore, Dragnet, McHale's Navy, Dick Van Dyke, Chicago Hope, the original Nightrider, Doctor Who :-)
Cons: That we have to go back home.
This is the 6th time that Michael books with me and the second time for an extended period. I really appreciate it!
I booked again at my California home at Joe's :-) for one night before flying back to my East Coast home.
Please see my previous reviews of Joe's as I absolutely agree with all that my wife and I said in previous reviews.
Joe is a really great guy, as nice as you could ask for in someone to stay with and hang out with. I just hope the next time I need to stay there that he's got something available. With a place and host like that, he ought to be booked up all of the time.
Mike and Judy are truly awesome guests. 5 stars plus!
Once again Joe was able to accommodate last minute changes to my work schedule. This is my wife's review and I absolutely agree with all of her points:
I liked the decor. I liked the space and great size of the bathroom and closet. Parking was fine. we had our own reserved covered parking spot. Safety never really crossed my mind, I felt very safe.
Loved the wireless internet. Also, I had no problem sleeping and was very relaxing.
The restaurants are good. Our favorite restaurants in the area are The Cheseecake Factory, I like their food and they make a good mojito. Denny's and Panera's as they have good salads. Also the Harbor House Cafe when we had to find a place to eat late. Funky and fun decor.
The movie theaters are very convenient and less than 5 min away. The weather is wonderful. I did not have time to view the pool and gym in my almost two weeks here so I will have to come back to check them out.
We drove to San Diego for our day excursion and it was a really pretty drive and we found a cool nature center at San Elijo with eco facilities. It's a quick drive to go to Disneyland from this location in Mission Viejo and we enjoyed shopping in downtown Disney.
I loved the shopping here and it is convenient. The price / value of staying here at Joe: it's good value for sure. Joe's breakfast is a-ma-zing.
It was awesome having Michael and Judy here for Michael's work in the Seal Beach area and their Disneyland, / OC Beach / San Diego vacation. 5 Stars Plus!

Although we were only staying one night, we had a great experience staying at Joe's place!
Joe couldn't have been any more helpful and welcoming if he tried. He made every effort to ensure we were happy and settled, and even gave us a welcome gift of 2 nice bottles of wine-what more could you want from a host?!
The property itself was spotlessly clean, in a really nice complex with its own pool and gym.
I would definitely recommend staying here, Joe is a great guy.
Our only negative is that we had to move on so quickly, we could quite easily have spent a couple of weeks chilling here!!
Ross, Barney and Johnny are amazing guests and awesome people. 5 stars plus!
Weeeeeeellll.... Joe is really pretty interesting person acording any subject we have discussed. I wish him luck in all things and everyone who will decide to stay at his apartment will be also very lucky! Good luck buddy!
Thank you Evgeny. Wish you great luck in all your future endeavors!
I've visited Joe at September, 2013. It was really great to stay in his cute apartment! Me and my friend really liked it and the location was extremely good. Joe is such a wonderful person and a great host, he made us feel very welcome and we had a great dinner together! Joe made everything!!! I can truly recommend renting Joe's apartment, it really felt like our home the day we spent in Orange County!
My two brothers and I were lucky enough to stay in one of Joe's apartments on the 28th September. We only had one night in Orange County which was certainly not enough time. We were met by Joe at the door who made us feel at home (email hidden)owing us around his home and answering any questions. He was extremely polite and went out of his way to help us. He even returned with a two bottles of wine as a welcome gift!
The apartment itself was also amazing with everything that you could ask for!
Hopefully we'll get to visit again soon! Joe Is a top guy and would recommend him as a host to anyone!
Thank you again!
My two brothers and myself recently stayed at one of joes apartments using my brothers air bnb account but I have since started my own and had such a great time that I wanted to write joe a review of my own.
We stayed for one night on the 28th September in a beautiful little apartment complex complete with its own swimming pool and gym.
I cannot stress how much of a good host joe was in the short time that we were there. Professional, courteous and kind being just a few of the words I could use to describe him.
We were met at the door by joe himself, who made us feel welcome straight away. He talked us through everything, showed us around the complex, told us about the local area and made it clear that he was only a phone call away if we needed anything. Not only that but once we were settled in, he returned with a couple of bottles of wine for us as a welcome gift.
We only stayed a night but I would definitely go back and spend longer if I ever get the chance again and I would definitely recommend joe to anybody out there.
I was introduced to Joe and from the very first email exchange I knew I would like Joe. He is a great host and very nice person and after being a guest we became friends. The condo is GREAT! I love the neighborhood and it is like finding a gem in Orange County, so quiet clean, safe and convenient. Everything works, the laundry, the internet. The pool and gym are new and very well manteined and we loved the jacuzzi and sauna. It really is in the perfect location. We went to Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, San Clemente, Disneyland, Sea World, Hollywood, Las Vegas from here and it was so easy and we had so much fun. I have been a guest in many homes, but I must say that Joe's is top of my list. It felt like home and he made it very comfortable. I can confidently recommend all of the listings he has here on Airbnb!
I had a wonderful experience. Joe and I worked for the same company. I knew that had great accommodations available and I had my sister and her family stay, five people total. Joe was amazing he found a great car rental rate for my 20 year old nephew. He helped them with travel issues and great places to visit in Orange County, San Diego and LA. I visited them and Joe's place was fantastic, new, simple, quiet, very clean, easy parking and road access, great gym, pool and spa. My family had a lot of fun and really enjoyed their stay. Highly recommended.
Hi everyone! I met Joe when I was looking for a nice place to stay in Orange County on a site other than Airbnb. I had a wonderful experience. Joe's place is great and very clean and central. Super convenient. I felt that the value was great compared to the prices for hotels and corporate housing and the overall quality much better than his competitors with similar prices. He took time to tell me about all the great cool spots that only the locals know. I felt very safe and Joe is very reliable and friendly. I enjoyed my stay so much that Joe and I have become great friends and I know I always have a great place to stay in Orange County when I go there. I definitely recommend it especially if you like visiting great places and stay in a very nice clean place and area.
