Older, but nicer than some
Our family of 5 needed a place to stay for a week while one of our kids went off to camp in the area, and were very excited to find this house for rent for less than the cost of most hotel rooms in the area.
The living area of the house is on the 2nd floor, with space to park our car (and perhaps 1 or 2 more) under the large front deck.
The house itself is obviously on the older side. The wood floors and gas fireplace were newer, but otherwise everything seemed a little behind on upkeep and repair. Still perfectly clean and serviceable, though, and nothing felt unsafe, even with a curious toddler poking around.
Speaking of our toddler, we found the house to be well prepared for kids, with gates at the stairs down from the front deck and back yard areas, and a small selection of kid toys, books, and puzzles.
The two bedrooms were of similar size, one with a double bed, the other with a twin-over-double bunk bed, plus an air mattress. The two bathrooms are between the bedrooms laid out identically, each with a toilet, sink, and shower.
No AC, but there are several tall trees that shade the house and kept it from getting too hot. Heating is done entirely by a gas fireplace hooked up to the thermostat. It stopped working once while we were there, but the property management company was very responsive—an agent came over right away. She was not able to fix the problem, but she called their repair man who was able to come the following day.
Perfect for what we needed!
Perfect location and house for a girls running trip. We spent most of the time away from the house and in the Santa Cruz area. The house has most of everything you need. The couches and covers are pretty dated and used, and shower curtains had mold all over them. But for what we paid it was well worth it!
Older home but worked well for our family
Gas grill and fire pit didn’t work
Sofa sleeper was unacceptable , we bought a blow up mattress to use instead
This place suited us fine for our purposes. My son just needed a respite place to be for awhile. The house is a bit worn but it is clean and comfortable and had what we needed. The setting is peaceful. We could hear frogs at night and see hawks in the trees, and the proximity to everything is great. Bailey properties was very responsive to a few issues that we had. If you are looking for something comfortable this is fine but if you are fussy about everything being well maintained you might want to look elsewhere. But we enjoyed our stay.
Lauren, Thank you for your review and for booking with us, we look forward to having you again.
Nice house. Accommodated 6 people easy. Nice yard. Very quiet street. Close to the ocean. The Bailey Properties was very responsive to all our needs. I would give 5 stars if it was better maintained and better cleaned.
Disapointed in house
Only sleeps max 4 adults and 2 little kids. Sofa bed was so old, warped and thin maytress-unsleepable. I was not told until I picked up keys that the heater is broken. Steep and old stairs to climb to get in so no disabled or elderly. Wifi does not work at all. Told them with no help. This house is the first time I have been disappointed with VRBO. Deck was dirty and moldy not nice to sit out on. Not happy with this rental
