A Summer Spent in Heaven!
A Summer Spent in Heaven!
My husband, 4-year-old daughter and I spent the entire summer of 2013 in this amazing house. It's hard to know where to begin with this review so excuse me if I go on and on! To start with, the location is the hands-down best in the city. You are right downtown - no hills to climb (this is very unusual), no driving needed. Especially in the summer when the trolleys are free and go miles from North to South and even to the festivals on Broadway. We were one block to Pacific Coast Highway and across it was the gorgeous Main beach. We often laughed because visitors to the beach parked so much further than where we lived! It was incredibly easy and fun living. The house is catty-corner from the adorable public library which has many kids' activities. We were also next to the best restaurants in town. We ate our way through the town. Honestly, I don't think we ever drove! The house is one of the most interesting places we've ever seen. Built in 1897 and maintained in the most interesting way. We had family come visit and each time someone found something new to look at. It almost has the feel of being in a vintage wooden boat (albeit a very, very large one). The living room is spacious with very tall ceilings. We had many dinners at the long wooden-benched table. The kitchen was large and updated BUT had an amazing antique Wolf oven & stovetop that cooked better than our new stove. It's a maze of interesting rooms, some stairs and interesting pieces. The owners take great care of their home. It was fully clean when we moved in - I was very impressed as there are many nooks and crannies. The nightlife is plentiful in the area so in every house downtown you hear nightclubs at night. This did not bother us but I recommend earplugs if you are sensitive. The house did not let in more noise than any other, which is great. There is a parking spot with a custom iron gate which makes life so much easier as parking is precious in the area. The owners were absolutely lovely to deal with and we hope to stay in touch with them forever! We would have booked the home again this summer but will be having a new baby in May and decided to stay home. (Though you better hurry and book or we may change our mind!)

Reilly family reunion
Our family had a reunion this summer in California and we stayed at this beautifully restored home one block from the beach. The owners were so very accommodating and helpful with us finding our way around. The home was cozy and had everything we needed. It had charm and we all felt right at home. It was the best trip we have ever had and plan on returning!! It was also it the cutest town ever.

Great beach vacation
Great beach vacation
Absolutely fantastic location -- easy walk to everything -- Main Beach, restaurants and shops on both Coast Hwy and Forest Ave, Whole Foods and Ralphs, the high school pool. Very comfortable and spacious family home. Highly convenient for a family with a dog -- great little enclosed yard.
