Stunning views, old stinky house

  • 2 of 5

Our family and another family spent a week sharing this home. Let me start by saying this home had some of the most breathtaking exterior views I've ever seen that were worthy of 5+ stars. The spa, game room, and firepit were great places to spend time. However, I simply cannot give this home a good rating because of its interior. The house is old, and I knew that coming in based on the other reviews. I can deal with old, but it's deteriorating condition was in desperate need of a remodel. The kitchen STUNK! We tried for days to get rid of the smell, but finally decided it had to be the rotting boards underneath the sink where there was water damage that was causing the smell. There were holes in the linoleum and the cabinets were warped near the kitchen sink. The plumbing was very old and all of the bathrooms had problems draining. The bathroom countertop tiles and grout were cracked in some bathrooms, and the toilets were new, but the plumbing wasn't. There were also ants in one of the bathrooms, but we found some spray under the stinky kitchen sink that took care of them. Also, all of the bathrooms were carpeted which isn't very sanitary in my opinion. The home is very spacious with its 4 bedrooms (although in the overview of the home, in one place it contradicts by saying 5 bedrooms which is confusing and the master bedroom is listed twice in the amenities section but there is only one) and large living area, but the kitchen and bathrooms just ruined the home. Also some of the windows were cracked and the front door had holes in it that daylight shone through. The other odd thing was that the owner spent his nights on the property in an apartment above the garage. It kind of ruined the privacy factor for us. All in all, we paid WAY TOO MUCH for the property in the condition that it was in. It could be such a fantastic property if the home was updated, otherwise, it's definitely not worth $6,000 for a holiday week!

HoF Family Fun with an Incredible Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

The Privacy, The View, The Spacious Home, all made for an amazing time together. All we needed to bring was food, drinks, and binoculars. We had everything else available. A wonderful time spent with 12 family members of Great Grandparents to the little ones. We had local friends and more family drop in for dinner, and there was room for everyone to casually sit inside or outside. Tennis, ping pong, kite flying, watching and listening to the ocean. and of course a glass of wine, were our some of the highlights during our stay. Thank you Dan for making sure we were comfortable.

We will definitely be back to this beautiful ocean view home.

We love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Dan, the owner, made our stay so comfortable and fun! The property is not "new" but we loved the history and the character of this home, and the location just takes your breath away! To wake up to this view each morning? Pretty amazing. Plenty of room. It was kept up well and we found everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking some really good meals. We enjoyed every inch of the home and grounds! We played games, tennis, swam, bbq, late nite talks and smores 'round the firepit. We saw a lot of whales and sea otters. Bring your binoculars!! It was a truly memorable experience for me, my kids, my grandkids, my brother and his family. We want to go back next summer. Thanks Dan!

We recently visited Pismo for my niece's wedding and rented the hacienda for 16 family members - 4 generations. The gathering areas in the house --dining, living, outdoors--were large enough that there was room for everyone without ever feeling crowded. It was especially nice to be able to sit everyone down for dinner in one space. But what we enjoyed the most was the priceless view of the ocean. We spotted whales, porpoises, sea otters, and seals. We tried to find time to enjoy all the amenities offered and took advantage of the fire pit, pool, hot tub, game room and lawn games. Liked that could walk to Shell Beach from the house. Our biggest issue was probably the sleeping arrangements. The sofa beds were not very comfortable so we had to find a work around for that. Would definitely come back.

A Perfect Place for a Large Group to Gather

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed three nights in this house and loved it. The house is very large and gave everyone their own space. It was so enjoyable to be able to gather in the big livingroom to visit or sit around the large dining table at dinner time for great conversation. Cooking in the large kitchen was very convenient and the large table there provided a cozy place for everyone to eat breakfast. And, at all times, the view and sound of the ocean could be seen and heard. The game room provided lots of entertainment for all. We would definitely recommend this place as a "home away from home" to all who need to get away and relax!
