Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as shown in the photos. Very comfortable beds, and lots of linens. Kitchen is very well equipped with everything we needed for cooking, baking, and barbecuing. We stayed for 2 months and enjoyed walking to the beach, and having an off leash dog beach only 10 minutes drive away. The park right across the street from our front door was also a bonus for walking the 1/4 mile paved walking path. Great park for families with children. We loved being able to walk to all the shops and cafes downtown. This neighbor hood is very friendly and we always felt very safe day and night.

Ruthie and Cory Elleby were so welcoming and helpful for anything we needed. I would highly recommend this property for a perfect family vacation. We will definitely consider this home again in the future.
