Guestbook comments from the owner

I don’t normally write reviews, but this place is totally worth reviewing. And if I could from a scale of 1-10, I would give it a 10++. We are a young family with two little boys and one on the way. I wanted to find a place that was very accommodating to families, but also has a great bed for my preggo self. Shawn and Lily definitely have the gift of hospitality and paid very closely attention to fine details. I am a light sleeper and so is one of my other children. Even at home, I have to be very quiet in opening and closing things. Shawn and Lily had put in soft-close drawers which make it very nice and the doors open/close very easily as well. It was nice not having to worry about the family opening and shutting things. They also provided a really cool wagon and sand toys which was great to walk across the street to the beach with. Not having to worry about bringing all that stuff is a great relief for an OCD mom! Haha. The place is also so so clean. Everything is very luxurious and up to date. I would even have to go to say it’s cleaner than most hotels I’ve seen. I met the cleaning lady and she is very nice and pays attention to close detail as well. The laundry room was great too! Don’t forget to bring your detergent. Shawn and Lily have also provided random things I asked for and needed such as a French press, play pen, extra towels, etc. They have some condiments in the fridge, such as organic ketchup, ranch, another salad dressing, BBQ sauce. Himalayan salt and pepper were also provided. Bring your own cooking oil. In the shower, they provided shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. The neighborhood was nice, quiet and relaxing. We didn’t go the restaurant next door, but it’s just a couple steps away. Have a young family? This is THE PLACE to be! Would definitely recommend and come back many times over. Enjoy your stay! :)

Very clean, pretty spacious.

  • 4 of 5

We had a few issues upon arrival. Most were taken care of promptly. The only lingering issue was the WiFi didn't work until the day we left. Other than that they had everything, beach towels, chairs, toys, cookware,linens. Even had some bottled water in the fridge. Cross the road and you're at the beach. I would go back again.

Beautiful, quiet and so clean!

  • 5 of 5

This is our new favorite place to stay. Plenty of room for our family. Everything we needed for the beach was provided plus a beautifully stocked kitchen to make meals. Such a lovely environment with a gorgeous courtyard. The staff was so wonderful to work with. Will definitely be booking for next year!! We felt right at home.

Sisters vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a sisters and our daughters vacation at this lovely bit of heaven. We came from Phoenix, Kansas, and Central California. When we arrived everything was clean and comfortable. The beach is only steps away. plenty of beach chairs, toys and beach towels and a handy wagon to haul it in. We enjoyed lots of good food in the local restaurants. We even slipped in pedicures in a salon within walking distance. The condo is well equipped with almost everything you could ever want or need! It is quiet. We enjoyed evenings down by the fire pit! The only thing that i would say it lacked in is that if you need to use the roll away bed is that there is not extra bedding for that. But all in all the place was wonderful and we will be going back!!! Thank you!! The Friesen Girls
