6/15/2017 update: There are only a couple of weeks still open for this summer. They'll go fast, so let us know if you're interested!
In 2017 we just added a home cinema with a gigantic 120" motorized screen, a professional 4k projector and a massive surround speaker system in the living room. Enjoy a movie theater experience in the comfort of our living room after gorgeous day at the beach!
In 2015, we completed a major bathroom remodel, which produced a magnificent large master bathroom plus a new powder room, bringing the total number of toilets in the home to 3. Check out the photos on the VRBO website.
In 2014, we completed a courtyard, which adds an outdoor living room and dining room, with tile fountain and fire pit. We also redecorated the living room. We still need to update the photos of both and also plan on doing this later this month.
In 2013, we completed a major kitchen/dining room+ remodel, which is magnificent (see photos). The remodel includes a gorgeous gourmet kitchen/dining room with lots of charm and all new high-end appliances.
These remodels have not only maintained but enhanced the charming details of this 1930's Spanish style house, including vaulted ceilings, arches, and hardwood floors.
There is a massive king bed in the master bedroom and a trundle bed in each of the other 2 bedrooms. Both trundle beds can open to a comfortable king size bed.
The house and backyard feel very peaceful and secluded even though it is very centrally located.
The backyard is great to entertain with a solar-heated pool, a gorgeous spanish tile patio and beautiful fruit trees: a large mango tree (rare for California), a lemon tree, orange trees, different varieties of palm trees, etc. Hummingbirds seem to prefer the front yard planted with cactus, palm trees, and several southwestern plants.
The pool is heated by solar panels all year long. The climate is ideal: it rarely gets cooler than 60 and warmer than 85 degrees Fahrenheit. There is central air conditioning and heating but neither is needed more than 30 days a year thanks to the usually perfect weather.
The neighborhood is safe and family friendly with lots of great restaurants and shops within walking distance.
Note that there is no TV/Cable at all in the house. Instead there is a state-of-the-art home theater system with a 4k projector and huge 120" motorized projection screen in the living room. You can stream Netflix, Amazon or iTunes from the Apple TV and we also have an HBO subscription.
A premium 'Sonos' sound system is installed throughout the house and connected to Pandora, Apple Music and Tidal. You can control the music throughout the house using any smartphone or tablet.
