Best beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is perfect in every way! A short walk down the street and you are on the beach. Restaurants, nightlife and shopping is all a stone throw away. Kristin is beyond helpful with anything you need - and responds in record time. We met her 2 tenants behind the cottage and they were very friendly. Had we not been in the back we would never had known they were there - quiet as can be! We brought our 2 Brittany Spaniels and they had the time of their lives. Everything you need is right there - Kristin has stocked the house well. The only downside of this cottage is you have to leave when your time is up - So happy we found this little gem!

Good first time experience

  • 3 of 5

The location was great! The property was just removed enough from the hub-bub to allow us to avoid the crowds, yet close enough to walk or ride bikes on the boardwalk to access most of what we needed. That said, we ran into problems right off the bat. The house was stuffy and hot our first nights there. The ceiling fan in the king bedroom wouldn't work, nor did the standing fan work, after trying various outlets in the house. Apparently, there was a code in back of the remote for the ceiling fan which the owner had neglected to explain that needed to be adjusted. They said they would have a new floor fan to us by the next day. But, it did not come until Monday, and my husband assembled it for them. The owner apologized and said that it being Father's Day on Sunday, it had slipped her mind to bring it over then. Also, we wanted to BBQ for Father's Day and found the propane tank to be empty. My husband went to the store and bought the last refilled tank, only to find it was defective and wouldn't work. Thankfully, we were able to ask around and borrowed a tank for the evening. The owner did replace the tank the following morning along with the floor fan. We would recommend that the owner make sure the propane is full and ready to use, instead of leaving it up to the renter to discover an empty tank, requiring them to purchase more so that the next renter can use it as well.

In addition, late Saturday afternoon we went to take our car out of the small garage to take our grand-girls to a church dance and found the garage to be completely blocked perpendicularly by another car belonging to the full-time tenant living in the back part of the property. We reported this and the owner called the other party, but could not reach him til later that evening. We ended up having to transport the girls to and from the activity in our two-seater Tacoma which we had parked on the street. We lost that parking space for the night.

This was a also a learning process for us. We found we didn't like having to use the laundry mat, and prefer having an in-unit washer-dryer, even though the laundry mat was only just across Balboa Blvd. We also found that we prefer a place which has more than 1 designated parking spot. And, while the king bed was very comfortable, there was about 10 inches between the wall and the bed.

Nevertheless, we enjoyed our week with the girls, and the owner was very pleasant and generally quick to respond.

So charming and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at the beach cottage and enjoyed every minute. The home was well taken-care of and nicely appointed. The pictures don't do this place justice. It's a charming home with nice furnishings (no IKEA junk) and a large living space. Bedrooms are on the smaller side but definitely sufficient for a single family. Proximity to the beach, grocery store and laundromat is ideal (1-block or less to each). Front patio is a good size. We would definitely return.
