The living room is open to the entry and the large back patio (with a BBQ) and two of the bedrooms, the dining room and the kitchen open up onto the atrium (with a second BBQ). The Master Bedroom/Bathroom is on the opposite side of the home from the two other bedrooms and none of the bedrooms share a common wall to other bedrooms (either in the unit or with the neighbor).

Guests Comments include:
The house was so clean and organized and so easy to get to everywhere we wanted. We actually looked forward to coming back and just winding down in such a nice place.
I loved that my kids could ride the bikes around the community without fear of cars flying down the street. The home was perfect for our family and my mother that had limited mobility. Everybody had a place to go if they wanted privacy or if they wanted to be in the middle of all the goings on, we just loved this home and that it was central to everything we wanted to do. The Welcome book was a plethora of information and so much we learned about Huntington Beach was from the book. I loved, loved, loved the labels and information signs throughout the home because I didn’t have to stress about trying to find things and especially, trying to put things back. It was like everything was mapped out for us and it made it so easy for us to come in, change our clothes and go immediately to the beach. We like to walk around and we couldn’t believe how many people say “hello” – we never even met an unfriendly dog. My kids made instant friends with local kids at the pool and even went bike riding and playing basketball with the new friends. My kids didn’t want to leave. Everything in the home was so clean and worked and just no hassles. I wish my own home was that easy. Having use of the California State Park Pass was a fantastic surprise. We didn’t have to pay for parking at any California State Park and that included a lot of the beach parking. What a money saver.
We have stayed at other places and we never had something like this home. It was so clean and organized and we just felt all we had to do was enjoy our vacation because everything was so easy. We loved having the attached garage and the close parking. And not having to go upstairs or through a complex or a long walk down a narrow side entrance to unload the car was a blessing. Oh, and having a hose right outside the garage for rinsing off the feet and shoes, (and sometimes the kids) - excellent. We loved the Jacuzzi, pool and sauna and made us feel like we are actually staying at a resort or spa. After taking care of the kids all day, the Jacuzzi was our time. Our friends found this rental for us and they loved coming over to visit us when we actually came to visit them.
A bit about the home:
The Master Bathroom is walker friendly and the tile shower has a hand-held shower head and a built-in seat and safety bar. The only few steps are upon the entry from the front and from the garage. There are two queen beds, two twin beds and a leather sofa/queen sleeper. In addition, there is a small child’s mattress (crib size) and two mobile mattresses (twin size) that can be used in the bedrooms or in the living room, as needed by additional guests. Bed/Sofa Bed occupancy is for eight people; however, with the additional mobile mattresses, 10 people (plus a small child) can enjoy the home.
Ceiling fans are located in each bedroom, in the living room and in the kitchen. Ocean breeze runs very well, back to front, through the home.
The back patio has seating for six with an additional two-chair bistro set and four stacking chairs for more guests. The patio has a 4-burner BBQ and has a bar sink/faucet with a granite countertop food preparation area. Also, there are fresh herbs around the corner on the patio: rosemary, chocolate mint and apple mint for the chef and for the drinks.
The atrium has seating for four and has a 2-burner BBQ with direct access to the dining room/kitchen.
There is a 2-car garage (with garage door opener) and ample and easy parking on a wide street. This is not a gated community and the street is not a “pass-thru” street (so no crazy drivers).
California State Park Pass use included with rental (Free State Park Beach parking as well as other California State Park areas).
Equipment/Toys: There are three adult bikes, two children's bikes, bicycle helmets, tennis racquets/balls, basketball, volleyball, football, boogie boards, small swimming floats, beach toys, coolers, umbrella, umbrella table, beach chairs, beach towels, board games, cards, card table/chairs, etc., all for your enjoyment with the rental at no additional charge.
