True luxury at an affordable cost. Steve was a wonderful and helpful host throughout our stay. A wonderful place for a family getaway.
There was a great and relaxing vacation
The property is very nice, with large bedrooms, kitchen is huge with awesome view, it is difficult to describe because most of the areas of the house has an splendid view
Beautiful Vews.....Owner is a great host!
The house is absolutely gorgeous! The views of the bay and mountains are spectacular and the grounds are well kept. Steve the owner is interesting to talk to and a very gracious host. There were water problems ( the city water system not Steve's) which forced us to leave a couple of days early but Steve refunded the two days rent which was really nice of him.
From time to time the main city water pump breaks, it takes a couple of days to repair, I have resolved the issue for the future, I now can offer unlimited water 24/7,.
this house is wonderful, the view is amazing!
We really enjoyed our stay at this "affordable mansion". Did I mention the view! With over 7,000
square feet, my husband and I had plenty of room with our adult children and grandchildren. The balcony was perfect for early morning coffee or margaritas in the afternoon! Steve was a wonderful host and set us up with Lupita who cooked for us! Steve was really helpful and we will becoming back.
Perfect and beautiful place to spend a week in San Carlos
Our host Steve was accommodating and was a tremendous help. His place is one of the most beautiful and roomy houses we’ve ever stayed in. Right on the water, it is serene and peaceful, and holds a lot of people, With plenty of patio and living space, no one felt crowded. In our case, the house fit my 3 children and their spouses comfortably for a family wedding. What a delight!
Great home. Amazing views, but....
My family and I had a great time at this residency. The property was AMAZING. Steve the owner was a mellow guy when he introduced himself to us. However (unlike other reviews), he kept coming around the property and most times he was shirtless. We did understand it was his house but we did not feel much privacy while in the house. Our young girls were really scared and uncomfortable. The girls and other kids didn't want to be alone after seeing him around a few times. Let alone we had a great time (especially at the pool) but the kids no longer felt comfortable and neither did we so we decided to check out early.
Like I mentioned it's a great home with lovely views but the fact that the owner kept coming around the property, just walking around (shirtless at times) made the experience not so great.
By the way I did let VRBO know about this, to which they must have contacted the owner. We did get a response by the owner who was upset for us checking out early and for feeling the things mentioned were an issue. He did bring up the reviews he's gotten in the past which was ok but everyone's experience can be different. The reason why I'm leaving this review is to let families with kids know, who might feel uncomfortable with this. If you don't mind that then I definitely recommend this lovely place.
Since I live on the property I am very careful to respect the travelers privacy, this traveler is the first to feel threatened, read the other 52 reviews for proof, I have a separate living area, separate access and separate parking, everyday I have chores to do outside only, I sweep the walkways, clean the swimming pool, pick up trash. Thus I am in the travelers area, I do them at 7:00 AM so as not to be seen. Regarding me being shirtless, the young girls reaction "of being scared and uncomfortable" is exaggerated and not normal, at hotel swimming pools, on the beach, at the park it is common that men do not wear shirts. However in an effort to please people I now wear a shirt at all times. This traveler filed a compliant with VRBO, their decision was the complaint was not justified and the case was closed.
