"Our family of 5 (Mom, Dad, 2 adult daughters & 16 yr old daughter) really enjoyed our stay here. The location is very good. You are walking distance to several beaches, the wharf, boardwalk & Beach Street. We even walked to San Lorenzo park for a festival, 1.3 miles. We were very happy to have garage & drive way parking, & not have to drive. The neighborhood is quiet, especially at night, & we felt safe walking home at night.
The house is clean, nicely decorated & comfy. There are lots of windows, giving it a light feel. It is small, but the space has been used wisely. We loved the dining table with seats for 8, since we like to eat together & play games. Found nearly everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals, even had dish towels & Meyers soaps for washing dishes & hands. The dishes are beautiful, the nicest I have seen in a vacation rental. The stove, fridge/freezer & sink all worked great. Daughters used the bedrooms & reported their beds were comfy. The linens on the beds are very nice & in great condition. There is lots of closet space in each bedroom, as well as a desk, dresser & large flat screen TV. There is also a large flat screen TV in the living room, an interesting couch with a pull out trundle bed, & a (queen?) futon. Hubby & I slept on the futon, and while it looks fairly new & is in great condition, level, no lumps, etc, it was too hard for us. A foam mattress topper would solve that. Linens & blankets provided for it were very nice. The wi-fi worked great. We aren't TV watchers, so we never turned one on, can't comment on them. The bathroom was stocked with plenty of very nice towels & toilet paper, & everything was functional. There were also extra beach towels in the bedrooms. There is a stacked washer & dryer, but we didn't use them. The backyard looked nice, with a large patio table & chairs, and a very nice gas BBQ. If we were staying a whole week, these would have been lovely features we would have really enjoyed. But with just a few days, we were gone most of the time.
This is a duplex, but it is designed so that only the garages are connected. We only heard the neighbors when we were out front & they were too.
We found this house to be exactly as advertised, well priced & we loved it, & we would stay here again!"
