"Wait for it...that's what we do for vacations. You read a gillion descriptions, look a a bunch of pix. Pick one and hope. This did not disappoint. I always fear vacationing with a couple of couples. Would we have our space to really enjoy the private times away from the other couples? The answer was a resounding yes! From the downstairs rec area with a beautiful pool table to your bedroom to the various areas for sitting, games, and socializing, this house had it all. Especially when you share a home with several couples, bathrooms are important. I didn't count, but there was always one there when you needed it. And each one had either a great bathtub, sauna, whirlpool (couldn't spell jacuzzi), shower. Everything was full-sized too. And the best part...hot water! Nothing worse than being the last into the shower and there is no hot water left. One of your soon to be killed friends had taken his normal forty minute escape to paradise, leaving you frustrated, frozen, and determined to be first. Each bathroom has its own instant hot water tank. FREEDOM! Shower as long as you want, without fear of being hated by everyone else in the house.
We loved the morning coffee's on the balcony looking at Morro rock. The view from here was better than most restaurant's view. Happy hour was phenomenal from our balcony. The house was also in walking of Martini Monday at one of the local places. The beauty of this was that after a rollicking round of martinis, you could walk back home getting your cardio and reprieve of a DUI all at once.
I just said home. That's what was charming about this place. It is someone's home. It is comfortable for lounging, eating, movie watching...just like home. And it sure was cleaner than many homes I've visited too. And all around the house, you see evidence of the home life of the owners. You could see the love growth of a fine looking family. That made this rental even more special.
Outside we saw very interesting things. If you are feeling peeky, there are binoculars made like a telescope so you could zero in on the herd of four to five deer who foraged and frolicked in the woodsy area across the street. I enjoyed looking at the police training canines to attack dastardly villains. This area is far enough away, there is still beautiful quiet.
The owner was gracious but never intruded.
I would return to this wonderful respite on a regular basis. It felt like home...except with way more people. I have already recommended this rental."
