Great location and cute house
"Loved how close and convenient the house was to beach and store. Also loved that fact that we could clean ourselves to keep cost low. The only negative I would say was that the pull out coach was very uncomfortable. The furniture is a bit beat up and old, but overall a great beach house."

"Wow! My family and I stayed in this beautiful home for a week and it was beyond wonderful. Sally was a wonderful hostess and her family was so sweet and welcoming. The view is magnificent. I sat on the porch as much as possible, just breathing in that sweet sea air, listening to the waves crashing, and just taking in the beauty. We travelled to theme parks all over Orange County which was tons of fun, but honestly I wish we had had more days to just relax at this lovely home. We will DEFINITELY be back!!! Thank you Sally! Happy Birthday!!!"

"Perfect location and beautiful home. We had the upper unit and the inside was even prettier than the pictures show. Better than any other rental I have seen. Has everything you need included for a great vacation. I would definitely come back here."

The house was perfect in every single way! It was even more beautiful than the photo.
"This house is pure luxury. We had such a fabulous time and the owner and property manager thought of pretty much everything to make our stay perfect. It was fully equipped with everything you could need in the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. There was also a ton of closet space for our clothes and suitcases. The house also included the use of four really nice bikes, beach chairs, beach toys, kayaks, etc. We went to Disneyland one day but decided to forgo the second day because we preferred to hang out at the house because it was so awesome. This was actually the kids’ idea.
The house sits in a prime location right at the water’s edge. The kids played pool, or with beach toys by the water when the tide was low, while the adults enjoyed the absolutely amazing view. We took out the Duffey boat several times during our stay and enjoyed the sightseeing. We LOVED having use of the Duffy. And it was easy to find the house when we headed back because it really is the tallest house on the peninsula. All the balconies were really nice too. We ate pretty much all our meals outside. There are also a lot of great restaurants close by.
Every detail of the house was awesome. The beds were super comfortable too and so was the bedding. We loved the cool Spanish tiled showers and bathtubs too. Our kids enjoyed the huge jacuzzi tub as much as I did.
We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and rent a lot of houses on the west coast through VRBO and this one was by far our favorite. We really appreciated that the property manager, Lauren, was responsive and very nice from beginning to end. She gave us a thourough tour of the house when we first arrived, which included showing us how to use the elevator and boat. We texted her with a question during our stay and she texted right back. In all honesty, this house was absolutely perfect and we definitely plan to rent it again. (BTW, we rented the house in mid-October and the weather was gorgeous.)"
