Villa San Juan Capistrano is nestled in the rolling San Juan Hills, in a quiet gated golf course community that is surrounded by fairways and wildflowers. It is conveniently located one mile from the I-5 freeway, a scenic 15 minute drive from Orange County / John Wayne (SNA) Airport.
The naturally landscaped hillsides shield the Villa from the freeway so you will not experience any traffic noise which is common with many of the view homes in the area.
The photo to the right is the scenic, short one mile drive from the Interstate 5.
San Juan Capistrano sits 140 feet above sea level three miles inland from the Pacific Ocean to its South.
The Villa is located in the southern portion of San Juan Capistrano which experiences daily westerly winds which eliminates the need for air conditioning 99% of the year. However, the Villa has forced air heating and conditioning if you prefer a temperature controlled environment.
Our home is located far enough away from the coast, only 3 miles, so we rarely experience morning fog and wake up to mostly sunny days followed by cool nights. Most of the adjacent cities experience foggy mornings and overcast days at certain times of the year due to their closer proximity to the coastline.
The average temperatures in San Juan range from a high of 74 degrees to a low of 51 degrees year round. Year-round we have relatively low humidity, which is why you will not get any mosquito bites on this vacation.
The gourmet kitchen is equipped with cooking or hosting in mind with a Wolfe 6-burner gas range, Bosch dishwasher, wine cooler, built-in custom refrigerator, and every possible cooking appliance and utensil you might need to prepare a memorable meal which can be served in the cozy dining room or at bar stool seating at extra large granite counter top.
There are three Grocery Stores; Vons, Ralphs, & Marbella Farmer's Market less than 2 miles away, and a Trader Joe's less than 5 miles away.
Filling up the kitchen with groceries not only saves you money on meals, but it is enjoyable to cook in this kitchen or BBQ outside with a great view of the hills.
The home has a beautifully landscaped private yard with a tropical resort feel.
There are also over 75 restaurants in San Juan Capistrano, many who deliver. Click on the San Juan Restaurants Link above or see our favorite restaurants and bars in the Entertainment / Dining page of this website.
This information is also available in the Villa Guide we leave in the home.
