  • Beautiful and peaceful!

    "Our family has vacationed in San Francisco for 15 years. This was the first time we stayed by the ocean and it was by far our favorite experience here! The house is beautiful, peaceful, huge, and spotless. Very well maintained with views from every room, of the ocean, trees, hills, and from one spot, you can even see the tip of the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance. Has a comfortable and casual feel, very functional and livable, and is very well appointed with high-quality appliances, linens, and so on. Completely ready for move-in without bringing anything! Amazing variety of rooms (large gathering, private “nooks and crannies,” large master suite with dressing area and walk-in closet, etc.) … and the extra lofts and “secret passages" made it fun for the kids. Location is excellent, took us just 15 minutes to drive downtown, but it feels like another, quiet world compared to the bustle of the city. Owner very accommodating, very easy to deal with and very efficient. We spent hours on the front deck just watching the ocean waves roll in to the beach. A wonderful, peaceful place!"

  • The Best Weekend

    "Our thanks to Phil and Dottie for sharing their wonderful cottage. The kitchen is convenient and well stocked if you decide to eat in. However, good food and wine awaits you at every corner in Carmel. A night of peaceful sleep is a sure thing at Surfsong. I can still smell the beautiful roses in the garden. The hot tub was a treat after busy days being a tourist. We took many walks through Carmel, enjoying the amazing ocean vistas. Our frequent stops along 17 Mile Drive are treasured memories as was a fun visit to Monterey to enjoy the Aquarium passes. Point Lobos was a spur of the moment trip just before sunset one day. We visited the Carmel Mission as we left town on the last day of our visit. Too busy for shopping during this weekend visit. We can't wait to return someday!"

  • Everything was great except there was no towel ...

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Everything was great except there was no towel service We loved the location and rental unit, simply fantastic. The one issue was there was no turndown service, towel replacement or cleaning of any kind while we were there. For the price we paid for cleaning (over $100 a day) we should have gotten that much, they called it a departure cleaning service."

California Travel Tips

Our country’s largest state by population, and third largest by area, is home to a wonderful diversity in cultures, climate and landscapes. Here are the top sites to see and things to do in California by region:

The Bay Area

The Bay Area is best known as a free-spirited locale that is home to the biggest tech giants in Silicon Valley, including Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft. It’s anchored by two major cities - San Jose to the south and hilly San Francisco, a major tourist destination on the north end. Here are the top things to do while you’re in the Bay Area:

- Visit the sites in San Francisco. You can’t miss the iconic Golden Gate Bridge - bike across it, walk or take an open-air tour bus to experience the massive bridge in all its glory. Visitors can also take a ferry and tour spooky Alcatraz Island. Other attractions include shopping on Fisherman’s Wharf, checking out the sea lions on Pier 39 and immersing yourself in science at The Exploratorium and California Academy of Sciences. If you’re traveling here in the summer, bring a jacket! SF can be blazing hot and then overcast and chilly within the same day as the famed fog rolls in.

- Head north across the Golden Gate to see the giant redwoods in Muir Woods and check out some excellent wineries in the charming Sonoma and Napa valleys.

- Visit the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium and nearby beaches San Carlos Beach Park and Pebble Beach.

- Be one with nature at Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevadas or climb the famous Half Dome and El Capitan mountains.

- Go skiing or participate in other adventure sports in Lake Tahoe, just north of Yosemite.

Southern California

SoCal, as it’s sometimes called, is one of the sunniest and most celeb-studded places in the country. There’s plenty to do and see in and around Los Angeles and San Diego, the two major cities in the area. Here are the top spots:

- If you’re traveling with kids around L.A., head to Disneyland in Anaheim - the only Disney Park built under the direction of The Man Behind the Magic himself. Or, check out Knotts Berry Farm, a perennial childhood favorite that first opened in 1940. There are roller coasters, kids’ rides, games and plenty of fun for everyone. Don’t miss dining at Mrs. Knott’s California Marketplace for the renowned fried chicken, biscuits and boysenberry pie.

- L.A. is also the epicenter of the entertainment industry. Check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame, take a tour of Universal Studios and hike in the area surrounding the Hollywood Sign.

- Catch a Lakers game or popular concert at the Staples Center

- Take a hike in the Joshua Tree National Park in the beautiful Mojave Desert.

- Southern California is also home to some excellent festivals: Coachella Music Fest in Coachella Valley, the annual L.A. County Fair and the Newport Beach Film Festival, not to mention the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards. If you want to see some major celebrities, hang out in one of the cafes or restaurants on Rodeo Drive.

- If you’re traveling with kids in San Diego, Seaworld or the esteemed San Diego Zoo are excellent options, and Legoland in nearby Carlsbad will provide hours of fun.

- The valleys in central California are less-populated than the coastal areas, but one must-see is the Hearst Castle. It’s an ornate, palatial, 165-room home built for newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and set among 127 acres of gardens in San Simeon, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
