This was so much more than we expected, We enjoyed touring the house and reading the history of the house and the area. We like to learn the history of an area. The gardens are so beautiful and so carefully maintained. I strongly recommend a visit here

Casa Romantica is a place I discovered by looking for botanical gardens on a map of south Orange County. Seeing that the property is included in the American Horticultural Society list, I had to go.

Great architecture and home built on this site to take advantage of wonderful views of ocean and hills. Fun to watch the beach scene and surfers. Lots of So Cal history to read about. Nice gardens. Very approachable and relaxing.

This place is full of culture and arts - their programming is awesome - I came for the holiday wreath making which was great. Loved the grounds and the Gardens. Will probably come back from the Nutcracker in the intimate salon like atmosphere. Amazing views.

Went for a wedding recently and it was very nice. Ceremony was held overlooking the ocean and the reception was an indoor/outdoor affair. Parking is a dirt lot right out front, but there's street parking for more space. The Amtrak runs right out front and it's pretty loud with horns blaring, but luckily it didn't pass during the ceremony.

Attended a family wedding at his venue. Beautiful! Pacific Ocean in the background, gorgeous sunset. Efficient staff. Only negative--very little space for parking; needed to take a taxi or walk from our hotel

The site offered magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean as we watched a beautiful wedding. The Center was a perfect place for a summer beach wedding.
