"The Ocean View cottage is even more beautiful in person than in the pictures--the pics can't do justice to the amazing natural light and views, the thoughtful decoration, and the overall very high comfort and convenience level. Our hostess left us a gift basket, passes to visit Point Lobos and the Monterey Aquarium, and directions for accessing lesser-known walks in the area. We've stayed in Carmel many times but this is the place we'll be coming back to again and again--we felt like valued guests."

The property manager was adequately helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Everything was great. Just wish the windows were cleaner so we could enjoy the view. Also, no electricity in the bathrooms, but overall a good time was had by all, even the dog. An enclosed yard would have been nice.."

"I highly recommend this amazing home if traveling to the area. My family (wife and two kids) stayed with my brother, two other couples and another friend. This house was perfect. There is a tremendous amount of room. The bedrooms were awesome, especially the master which has an amazing view. The kitchen and living room were large enough to fit all of us comfortably. We couldn't have asked for a better place to rent. We have already recommended this house to other friends."

Spacious, clean and comfortable ... but there is a bit of street noise
"First and foremost - Portola Paradise is a great rental. There was plenty of room for our family of four and the hosts thought of EVERYTHING to make it an extremely comfortable stay, especially for a family.
The hosts were also extremely responsive to any questions before and during our stay.
We loved how central and convenient the rental is to anything around greater Santa Cruz, however, Portola Dr is a main road that does not slow down until 10 pm during the week and a bit later. I am actually surprised other guests have not mentioned this ... maybe we're just not used to being on a busier road.
This would be a strong 5 star rating and future repeat rental for us based on all other aspects, but we're just not used to living on a main drag."
