Vacation rentals in Orange County

Enjoy Orange County with a vacation rental

It's true - the sun never sets on Orange County, the heart of Southern California (SoCal). Popularly known as OC, the county comprises 34 independent municipalities, and world-famous attractions such as Disneyland and Huntington Beach. Come marvel at the Spanish Missions, enjoy personal encounters with the blue whales, and relish typical SoCal cuisine at Orange County. This family-friendly destination has rentals that cater to all tastes and budgets.

Tasteful vacation properties for everyone

Holidu offers a carefully-whetted selection of rentals equipped with luxurious amenities like private pools, sun decks, and Jacuzzis. For fiery sunset and waterfront views, consider booking at the cosmopolitan oceanfront neighborhoods of Long Beach, Huntington Beach, and Laguna Beach. For close access to the “Jewel of the California Missions”, book ahead in time at vacation rentals around Mission San Juan Capistrano. Families with young kids inevitably end up choosing accommodation near Disneyland.

Vacations in Orange County

Hit the coast

Eat, drink and make merry!

With 42 miles of sparkling shoreline, Orange County coast has often been likened to the French Riviera. For a classic beach jaunt complete with sandcastles, and golden sunsets by the pier, try Huntington Beach, also known as Surf City. Little Corona Del Mar Beach is an absolute gem for tide pooling - you’ll find plenty of star fish, sea urchins and anemones here. Crystal Cove is a photographer’s dream with its pretty bluffs and coves. Snorkel in its translucent waters and grab a fish sandwich at Shake Shack. Local favorite, the laidback Seal Beach is recommended for its windsurfing and kite surfing opportunities.

Wine and Dine So-Cal style when in OC

Leading the way is the thin crust California-style pizza, best washed down with sparkling white wine - try the shrimp, seafood and asparagus toppings for a break from chicken and cheese! Next are the iconic Mission Burritos usually stuffed with sour cream, baked beans, rice, and guacamole. You can’t go wrong with the French dip sandwich: finely sliced roast beef (pork/lamb/turkey) set inside a baguette moistened with gravy, and at times a slice of blue cheese thrown in. When in Orange County, it’s only befitting that you try the Agent Orange cocktail – orange juice, vodka and triple sec/Cointreau to get those taste buds tingling.

Travelers and activities

An art attack in Orange County

The OC’s biggest draw is Disneyland Park where children will go absolutely crazy exploring the themed lands: Mickey’s Toontown, and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge among others. Adventure City, also in Anaheim, is quieter and just as much fun. Next is to take the kids on a Duffy electric boat ride around the Newport Beach Harbor. These charming canopy-covered boats let guests bring along their own food, drinks, and music too! At Laguna Beach’s Ocean Institute, the entire family can go wild getting showered in salty sea spray and checking out the ocean's wonders. La Vida Laguna is a safe spot for children to try their hand at kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and surfing.

A culture trip of a lifetime

The county boasts a compelling list of museums such as the Orange County Museum of Art in Santa Ana that holds an excess of 4500 art pieces spanning paintings, sculpture, photography and more. Fans of Pre Columbian art, and First American history will enjoy Bowers Museum. There are tons of African and Asian exhibits here too. The International Surfing Museum in Huntington Beach, and the Surfing Heritage and Cultural Center (SHACC) in San Clemente are worth checking out for their intriguing surfing memorabilia and surf-themed films.

Did you know that pirates once freely roamed the coast of Orange County, Mission San Juan Capistrano in particular!

Top 5 travel tips for Orange County

1. Explore Mission San Juan Capistrano

Known as the Birthplace of Orange County, this world-famous Spanish mission established in 1776 is an eye-opener in history, religion and spirituality. Historic Los Rios Street in Downtown San Juan is chock full of surprises – saloons, museums, dance halls, and gourmet coffee stores.

2. Whale-watching shenanigans

Nicknamed the "Whale Watching Capital of the World", a whale-watching cruise at Dana Point will fetch you close encounters with giant blue whales, humpbacks and the playful wild dolphins. Bring your binoculars along, and try coinciding your trip with the Whale Festival in March.

3. Stroll through Little Saigon

Costa Mesa in Orange County is home to the world’s largest Vietnamese population outside of Vietnam. The area has hundreds of eateries serving authentic Vietnamese cuisine. A burst of sights, sounds and colors awaits – incense, tropical fruit, chopsticks, hanging barbecues ducks, and more!

4. A day trip to San Catalina Island

Get off the main strip for an escape to rustic San Catalina. Sun, sand and surf aside, the island is a magnet for adrenaline junkies. Take to the air with a zip line eco tour or the Catalina Aerial Adventure. The Falconry Experience is as riveting as the orange garibaldis you’ll spot on the Undersea Sub Expedition.

5.Ride the Balboa Fun Zone Ferris wheel

Dating to 1936, this historic Ferris wheel has served as a cinematic backdrop to Newport's Harbor particularly after dusk. A photo against this Orange County icon makes for an memorable keepsake.
