FABULOUS Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was truly a home away from home for me and my Mom for Oct/Nov ('14) and then again for me the first week in December. It was such a wonderful experience, from start to finish, I don't even know where to begin. Ok, I'll start with the fact that Gary & Maxine are FANTASTIC...a dream to do business with. I felt as though I was communicating with dear friends.

The beach house is spacious, it was more than enough room for my needs and yet somehow managed to still feel cozy. The balconies/terraces off of the master bedroom and the living room were delightful to enjoy breakfast, late afternoon coffee/tea, or a glass of wine from, and the view of the ocean and sunsets was FABULOUS. I wish I could post even one of my photos of the magnificent sunsets we were treated to. The beds were SUPER comfortable and please know that I am very picky about my sleep comfort. Even the daybed in the entertainment/rec room downstairs is luxurious and had my mom sleeping like a baby. The kitchen is wonderful and provided plenty of counter space, and was stocked with plenty of dishes, flat wear, pots & pans, spices, etc...The fireplace in the spacious loft-like living room/kitchen area was a real treat.

The neighborhood is wonderful, upscale, safe, and quiet, with great dining options nearby. I HIGHLY recommend Mrs. Olsen's Coffee Shop...I can still smell the divine plate of steak & eggs I had on my last morning there. Bike rentals at the Marina are a short 2 minute drive away and there's plenty to do if your so inclined or you can relax and enjoy watching the surfers, frolicking dogs on the beach, kids at play, people flying kites & remote controlled air get the idea.

The neighborhood has a relaxed, friendly, inviting feel to it that is truly welcoming and wonderful. I hope to be back soon.

Many thanks Gary & Maxine

A Little Peace of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Gary and his lovely wife may have to evict us from their stellar beach townhouse. Believe all the great reviews and know that your dream vacation has been ensured by the love of detail by this couple. Their desire to provide a stress- free get away for all is inexplicably illuminated by their cozy, private and shabby-chic (with elegance) home-away from home. I have enjoyed an entire month here and am looking forward to another month now. The first two weeks was a ‘ladies yearly vacation’ with one friend traveling from as far away as Bermuda. The following two weeks I chose to listen to the needs of my body and mind so as not to burn out and therefore obtained a new perspective on life by devoting time with myself and all the new friends I have made here. The change in routine and the ambience of this house has given me permission to read all the novels and biographies I normally would not slow down enough to enjoy. My 84 year old mother, my 38 year old daughter and my 31 year old son arrived last night from Virginia so that we may enjoy some quality time in a designated stress- free home.

You may be a bit uncomfortable renting a home sight unseen as I was initially. However listen to your “gut” feeling and take the leap as I did. Gary supplies everything needed to ensure a stress-free, relaxing and revitalizing vacation…except the groceries or vouchers for all the wonderful restaurants and wineries nearby….darn! Believe me when I say, “Everything!” Lovely stoneware, stemware, numerous utensils, towels, shampoos, cleaning supplies (don’t worry… can hire Juanita to clean for you at a very reasonable price and she even left a coffee filter in the pot for my next cup of coffee.), books, toys, beach chairs and too many other amenities (and necessities i.e. toilet tissue, paper towels, etc.) have been stored and arranged not only for convenience but for aesthetic purposes. He has gone way beyond the call of duty to ensure all of us feel like a guest in his home. He makes you feel as if you have a ‘butler’ on call but he is never intrusive. (I have only seen butlers on TV but he epitome of one.)

Gary installed glass partitions which flank the front and sides of the two spacious patios facing the ocean. On chilly nights you can relax on a comfy Adirondack chair w/o the cool breezes forcing you inside. But if you wish to miss the magnificent sunsets and stay indoors, he has provided a beautiful fireplace in the dining area which opens into a newly updated

Great location, stunning view -- no maintenance, no toilet paper

  • 2 of 5

Gary is a sweet guy, and has a beach house in prime location with a tremendous view of the channel islands. Unfortunately, this property has not been well cared for which is why i'm giving him 2 stars.

The bathrooms and the master bedroom are very nice, but the kitchen was full of dirty dishes and towels, it wasn't ready for cooking, as it needed to be cleaned, in a heavy way.

There was a hole in the ceiling of the basement where there had been a lot of water damage, and the entire basement (meant to be a place to hang out or sleep) smelled like a hamster cage or mildew.

There was no toilet paper or hand soap in the house, at least not that we could find. This was an unexpected inconvenience.

There were not enough blankets and pillows to sleep the number of people we had in our group, which was well below the max number that is posted.

the balconies are really tiny. Can maybe fit 5 people on each if you cram in

The beach was gorgeous, and Gary was nice, but not willing to take responsibility for the state of the house, blaming the cleaning crew or those that look after it for him. He did not offer to adjust the price after I called him to let him know how dissatisfied I was with the state of the cleanliness and disrepair of the house. He did offer, however, that we could stay a few hours beyond checkout - a nice idea, if the place was nice.

I don't recommend that you stay here, unless you just want to go to the beach or take in the view and don't care what the place looks or smells like when you are ready to be inside.

Great location, not well stocked.

  • 3 of 5

This house is in a perfect location. The unit itself is a bit older, with some super nice upgrades in the tile/countertops department. But it is weirdly understocked - incomplete kitchen utensils, no trash bags, no foil, and no additional toilet paper beyond the one roll initially provided. Again, unbeatable location but room for improvement.

Potentially perfect

  • 2 of 5

I booked this property for my bachelorette weekend. It was perfect! Location, style, etc. When we got to the house, the key was not in the lock box, however the door was unlocked and when we got inside, we were shocked. There was sand everywhere and all the beds were unmade and the bathrooms had toilet paper all over them. I called Gary the owner and explained what I was seeing and apparently his housekeeper had quit and was holding his key ransom until she was paid and didn't clean the house. He was extremely apologetic and got someone to change the locks that night and clean the house the next morning and he discounted our stay. I wish I could give it more stars but I was on the phone with Gary and his wife all weekend, translating for them with the person cleaning the house, three way calling between all of us, and all around too much coordination needed on my part. My hopeful relaxing weekend turned into a logistics nightmare and I was unable to relax all weekend. I appreciate the effort from Gary and his wife, but I don't think I could ever stay here again.
