Perfect layout for multi-family stay

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the ocean view from the house, not far at all to the walkway to the beach. The upstairs bathroom has an amazing shower, loved it! Beds were very comfortable and a great plus that all the linens were provided. Was glad I had read previous reviews, so I took my electric hand mixer with us...but found that there were no cookie sheets for baking?!? The gas stove in the living room didn't seem to be working, but was OK because the weather was amazing! The only draw back that we found was the access to the house from the parking area, one way is an easy ramp/stairs mix, but then you have to go up the rather steep indoor steps to the upper level, the other way you use a cart to get your things to the access walkway, which is a sand/stepping stone mix to the upper level, rather long and difficult for ice chests and luggage. Quite the workout! Otherwise, the house was very comfortably furnished and was very clean upon our arrival. The kids loved the game cupboard, and the TV in every room helped to occupy them during meal prep! What a great vacation! Thank you so very much for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: Hello Sandra: thanks for renting the house. You should have contacted us. The cookie sheet is in the drawer below the oven. The gas stove needs to be turned on to operate. The on button is located on the wall controller where the temperature is set. Thanks Gill

A very peaceful and tranquil setting. It's awesome to view both the sunrise and sunset from the convenience of the house. This was my second stay here. On both occasions, I felt like the stress and chaos of work were light-years away. A true get-away. I plan on being a repeat customer.

Fantastic weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at House 17. It was nice the first time when we visited a few years ago and even better this time because it's been recently remodeled. There's a partial ocean view off the back deck and a view of the valley and nature area from the front deck. The house was clean, well-maintained and well stocked with towels, blankets and kitchen utensils, pots and pans. Our son and his family evacuated from Hurricane Irma in the Florida Keys and are going through the difficult process of readjusting to the Keys after the extensive hurricane damage. It was a very welcome escape for them to be able to spend a few relaxing days by the Pacific Ocean at House 17. Thanks again!

We had a fine week at the house. A perfect combination of place, space, weather and friends.

We would recommend this house without reservation.

Beautiful quiet beach house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This is house is absolutely amazing. It was a wonderful place to take my two teenage children, my adult daughter and my dad. There was plenty of room and all of the beds were extra comfortable! The bathrooms were gorgeous and recently remodeled. The house had amazing views of the ocean and the valley off of both decks. The kitchen was very functional and had everything we needed which was perfect since we cooked in every night for dinner. The propane stove in the living room was a special treat especially because our week was pretty chilly. This house had everything I was hoping for and more..We have stayed at Pajaro in the condos but this was a whole new wonderful experience. The owner was super easy to work with and got back to us right away! I can't wait to go back next year!

Comfortable and cozy, are the two words that best desçribe this home ...there are wonderful places to sit both inside and out. Views of the valley and the ocean. Small well equipped kitchen, nicely renovated bathrooms, bright light filled living area with tall ceilings. Only a few things missing, food storage containers, hand mixer, iron and the telephone didn't work ??
