"This cottage is everything it promises to be, and more. We loved that it was two short blocks to beautiful Huntington City Beach, and walking distance to restaurants and shopping. We needed the car only for trips to Disney (1/2 hour away) and LegoLand (about 1 hour away), and to the grocery store. The beach is free -- you only pay to park there, which we did not. The water at the beach is cold, but our Colorado grandchildren were in their glory. The cottage is immaculately maintained and spotlessly clean. Beds were comfortable, and water pressure was great with plenty of hot water. I worried that there is no AC, but as promised, the nights were cool enough that ceiling fans in almost every room cooled the place nicely. The kitchen is fully stocked, with plenty of dishes, a quiet dishwasher, gas stove and a gas grill on the deck right outside. Boogie boards, surf boards, beach toys, comfy Tommy Bahama beach chairs, all included. The kids loved the hot tub, and we did, too, after they went to bed. One reviewer mentioned that there weren't enough towels. There are 12 bath towels and 8 or 10 beach towels -- more than enough for our group of 5. One reviewer said the place is small. It is, but the back deck, front porch, and hot tub more than made up for it. Nights were very quiet, and during the day, I liked watching the parade of people walking to and from the beach. We've used VRBO with great success in the past, but this was really the best experience yet. We hope to make this 'charming beach cottage' a yearly vacation for our family. It's just perfection."
