This quaint Capistrano Beach cottage and garden was created in 1951. Over the years, it has been graciously adapted by the various owners. We have been blessed to be caretakers for the past 30 years.
The garden is divided into vignettes: a front garden with mature Melalecua linariifolia trees, rustic galvanized steel tub fountain and cozy lounging area; a covered brick patio with landscaped miniature whimsical garden railroad and country village including 1800’s era steam engines, train station, lumber mill, school, church and other assorted buildings; a hidden garden bordered by mature Ficus benjamina trees that provide hours of shade on a small expanse of lawn; and a Gathering garden for friends and food including a BBQ dining area, vegetables, herbs and fruit trees.
Our goal has been to maintain the beach cottage original design while enhancing the garden with more efficient irrigation and careful placement of plants to minimize water use.
It is a place reminiscent of times gone by when life was simpler and days seemed longer. Come enjoy a sweet and comfortable cottage garden . Listen for the sound of an old steam engine as it winds its way through the forest delivering goods to the village. Wander and experience God’s handiwork and allow a cool ocean breeze to settle upon your face.
