"LOCATION: On PCH, just a stone’s throw below Moonshadows, the house is perfectly located. We saw dolphins almost every day, distant sailboats, etc. The house is positioned so that you have privacy from your neighbors on the beach side, and the waves mask most sound, so you really do feel like you have your own, private beach.
FACILITY: The house is beautiful, and looks just like the pictures shown. The first thing I did was go to the south, all glass wall, and throw open the doors to the stress expelling sound of the Pacific’s wave rhythms. If you don’t crave the mighty sound of waves washing on the shore, simply closing the sliding glass doors will provide ample muting.
DECK: Spent the whole week on the deck; sitting at the outside table in the morning with coffee and sconces, or lounging on a deck chair while reading, it was perfection. If you love the sun, but want to enjoy it from a shaded area, bring along an umbrella. The deck gets perfect sun, all day, so we just made sure the umbrella followed the sun’s position – perfect.
KITCHEN: The kitchen was fully appointed; gas stove, side by side fridge, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, blender, cooking and serving utensils, flatware, glasses, dishes, mixing bowls, vases – everything you could need, right down to dish soap and sponge. And if you forgot, anything, Ralphs and other stores are just a quick drive north.
BED/BATH ROOMS: Large comfortable king bed in the master, queen in the guest room. Fluffy white duvets, pillows and towels. If you are brave enough, you can enjoy a spectacular ocean view while in the master bath’s glass enclosed shower. Based on reading a couple of reviews, I was concerned about water presser in the shower. Absolutely no need to worry. The pressure was no problem, if there ever was a problem, it has been resolved. A special plus here – the guest bedroom is also on the ocean side, so everyone gets the view.
PARKING: One evening we had a couple of friends over for dinner, and we had plenty of parking for 4 vehicles (2 SUVs and 2 sedans).
OWNER: Natalie was very easy to work with, & deposit was refunded within hrs of my leaving. Handy info binder that provides vital information, & fun-to-do-nearby tips.
EXTRAS: Internet, TVs, landline phone number – all available for your use. An amazing amount to do in the water, and other fun activities for everyone. We were looking for a quiet, sunny, peaceful week of cooking, eating, drinking and being with friends, mission accomplished!"
