About the property

This house has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath. Located a stones throw from a Nature Preserve
Our home was remodeled from top to bottom November 2014 and we have strived to keep the homes fresh look and modern feel. It's private and off the beaten path. All appliances are like new and it has the things that matter like comfortable beds, Down pillows, comforters & nice sheets. Amy & I have been using VRBO for many years and the number one thing is a good nights sleep so we offer that accommodation. Other details we like to see are things like a place to hang your toiletry bag, a magnifying mirror, lots of towels, & a hot shower.
Our patio has a Tru-Infrared barbecue (no flair ups), It's private and opens up to the house nicely.
This house has two bedrooms both with Queen size beds and a fold down couch in the living room when needed.
There is a 650 acre wilderness preserve & park 700' from your front door. Ideal for an evening walk, morning jog, or even a picnic.
The river walk takes you directly to the beach.
I think the house will make a great retreat for you after your day of fun in the sun. Included with this rental is a Beach parking pass upon request. Beach parking can run as high as $15.00 a day so don't forget borrow our pass!!!
Please feel free to ask us for assistance in planing your visit.
More than glad to help.

Very nice, clean and practical!
We stayed here on a 4-day whirlwind weekend to southern California. The location was great for reaching many of the important destinations on our itinerary, ranging from San Diego to Santa Monica, to Glendora, not to mention the 10-minute drive to Huntington Beach. The accommodations were very comfortable for 2 adults and 3 boys (15, 18 and 20). The back patio was very convenient and the kitchen was well equipped for nightly grilling. This was a no hassle, low-stress place to stay. We recommend it and will keep it in mind for our next trip to southern California.
Perfect place to stay!
Cozy, well maintained cottage in a perfect location for exploring Huntington Beach and other nearby beaches.
The property was exactly as described. Clean, well equipped and quiet. The outside patio is awesome to sit and relax in...What more can can you ask for?
We loved it!
We really enjoyed this place. Very comfortable. Great kitchen, comfortable patio. Nice set up with the living room and TV. No complaints! We could stay here a month if we were able to pull it off. It is really like having your own place. Nice neighborhood and we enjoyed the park nearby. Parking outside the door and the location was very good for our trip. We were very comfortable and would rent again in a heartbeat. It is a very good value. I appreciate all the previous reviews, they helped us decide to stay here, and we were not disappointed. The owner is friendly and helpful, and respects your privacy. The owner puts a lot of pride into having a quality Rental. It shows. We hope to return next year.
We had a great stay at the cottage. My wife and our two kids 5 and 2 had plenty of space. Clean nicely updated space. Right next to the park which tied into the bike path that is a couples miles to the beach. The private fenced outdoor area was great for grilling and having dinner with the boys. The beach pass was super helpful. Jim and Amy were very helpful and responsive during the entire booking process and stay. Highly recommend.
The cottage was close to beaches, restaurants, amusement parks, yet very quiet almost at the end of a dead end street close to walking trails. Jim and Amy let you use their beach parking pass which is a big plus since parking at the piers and beaches can get pretty expensive. It's also nice to have a parking spot right in front of your front door. Also, if you have any problems with anything they pick up the phone right away and deal with any concerns. I would stay again!
Huntington Beach & Downtown Area are a 4 mile bike ride or drive along the coast hwy. On Tuesday nights Main street in Huntington is closed to traffic for a street fair right at the pier. Newport Bay is also about 4 miles bike ride or drive in the other direction along Pacific coast Hwy. Enjoy fine dining on the Bay or just a walk along the boardwalk. This is a perfect location for a Day at Disneyland. A 25 minute drive down Harbor Blvd. Lands you at the doorstep of the happiest place on earth without freeway driving. Legoland, Universal Studios, & Knotsberry Farm are all within striking distance. Premier shopping at South Coast Plaza & Fashion Island are close by. Orange County Performing Arts is 10 to 12 minutes away with many world class musicals and plays. A day trip or overnight to Catalina Island is a good way to get out on the ocean where Dolphins, Whales, & Seals are often spotted on the Catalina Flyer. Catalina Island's town of Avalon offers many activities including Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Hiking, Bird Watching, sailing, Glass bottom boats, and much more. There are many Golf courses in the area to choose from. Costa Mesa Golf course is a mile away. Hollywood & the LA scene is an hours drive away but after a day of jam packed action it's nice to come back to our quiet neighborhood to relax. LAX International airport is 45 minutes drive. We have lived in the area for 25 years and can help you plan your stay........... :-)
