The older I get, the more I appreciate where I live.  Los Rios District in San Juan Capistrano is one of those places that I always knew was there but never really took the time to appreciate.  Located just across the street from the San Juan Mission, Los Rios is the oldest neighborhood in California. Originally it was made up of 40 adobe homes, but in the 1800's many were replaced by adorable wood sided ones.
The Montanez Adobe is one of the last remaining of the original homes built in the late 1700's.

Some of the cottages are now used as shops and restaurants.
Others are private residences. 
This one is for lease for $3900 a month.  Live or Work.....Maybe the future site of KRT Home?? HAHA.....one day. 

If you happen to be visiting SoCal, Los Rios is def a place worth visiting but is often overlooked.  Your best bet is taking the train (It lets you off right in the center of Los Rios).  Get breakfast at The Ramos House, walk the shops, and if you have kids check out Zoomar's petting zoo. Lunch at the Tea House is always a fun girls day as well.


  1. Looks like an amazing place! I so wish I'd live in SoCal.

  2. Love seeing these special little places you find. I know if I ever get to California again, I won't be able to see it all! This is just darling.

  3. OMG what a cute little village. Can I live here too? I think we'll have a bidding war over that $3500 lease home hahaha!


  4. what a beautiful place! Seems like a little treasure!
