It was a family dream to own a beach house.
Fully Equipped with Everything needed to have a nice peaceful vacation!
Excellent location for both beach and bay. Our whole family enjoyed it ! House is spacious with an excellent patio on the third floor. We barbequed and had plenty of room for everyone to eat together. The lack of air conditioning was a problem for us since it was extremely warm. Loved Wilma's Patio on Balboa Island for breakfast.
For the most part, this Beach house was Fabulous. The owners should really take new pictures because it's so much better then what is portrayed! The bedrooms downstairs are comfortable, with a nice bathroom to share and tv's in each. The Master is amazing - spacious, bright, access to the roof top deck and a master bathroom that is very large as well. The TV's are all large and new; the living area is so comfortable and bright and the dining area is great for large families. The carpet is clean and the furniture was as well. The garage was fully stocked with everything you need for the beach and more, like bikes, scooters, long boards and even a surf board and we-suit. A few things that threw us off - the person that greeted us stated clearly that even though "you" were on vacation "the rest of us aren't and have to work so no outside conversation after dark" (we aren't party people so we weren't bothered by the concept). She also said "You're hand washing dishes for the week because the dishwasher is broken". The wonderful jetted tub in the master felt great for about 15 minutes, until my husband ran up to tell me that it was leaking through the cabinets in the kitchen downstairs, which ruined all of our food (big leak). The place had so many positive things though that we didn't let these things bring us down. The location is perfect, you can see the ocean from the top deck but walking to it takes less then five minutes - it was faster to walk home then to the Balboa Boardwalk, once we were on the beach. The other side has the harbor, great restaurants and a few shops. We went para-sailing and Whale Watching, both departure locations were a five minute walk. You really don't need to drive anywhere except for the grocery store. All in all - a Wonderful Beach house!
My family and I enjoyed everything about it. Three floors with three outside seating areas. Very nicely decorated. Plenty of space. You could, actually, fit the car in the garage and have room to walk around. Any items you need are there. From the top patio you can, clearly, see the bay and the ocean at the same time. We would go back in a heartbeat.
My husband and I and our three adult children (ages 17, 20 and 23) rented this beachhouse for Christmas week. The home was on three levels and even more beautiful and spacious than the pictures. It was very clean and contained everything we needed. The home was well stocked with linens and beach towels, modern appliances which included a washer and dryer. It was decorated tastefully in a seaside theme and calming blue colors. We loved our huge master bedroom, fireplace, and large bathroom on its very own floor which gave us a sense of privacy. The patio with french doors off the master was large and had nice views. My sister-in-law made a bed on the couch in the living room which easily could have slept a few more people on blow up mattresses. The third bathroom right off the kitchen was helpful with a houseful. The location was perfect, just 1 block to the harbor where we went whale watching (saw a fin whale), and about 3 blocks to ocean. Everything was about a 5 or 10 minute walk from the home. The neighborhood was quaint and peaceful. The boys kayaked around Balboa island; we had great walks on the beach, and bikerides on the boardwalk. Our favorite dinner out was the nearby CrabCooker; fresh BBQ fish and fun casual atmosphere (but a little spendy). There were boogie boards and two working bikes provided, even a surfboard! I actually enjoyed not having internet, it was a wonderful break from being wired, although the neighbor told us we could easily get internet access at the nearby library. The stairs were no problem for us, however older folks may be concerned with stairs. We want to go back, it was incredibly relaxing. I highly recommend this house!
What a fabulous home. The pictures don't do it justice. It sleeps plenty, has ample room to entertain and is walking distance to everything. I was even amazed with the amenities that were provided, from the pretty candles, nice hand soap, towels for beach and home, bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs...What a deal! We are already planning to go back.
I was very pleased with my stay. There were 8 of us (4 adults and 4 teenagers). We all were able to sleep comfortably. The house was very clean and comfortable. I would stay there again!!
