Everything is as described

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable and functional place to stay near the beach. Walking distance to food, grocery, beach. Very tight garage space--take advice to rent compact vehicle seriously. Kitchen is well-outfitted, and there are lovely tables to eat both outside and in. Attentive and available hosts. The biggest downside is just part of being on Balboa: lots of activity on the street and the noise that comes with it. I found the noise from the unit above to be quite noticeable, but the host encourages to call if it's a problem and I didn't, so I can't complain.

Absolutely Did Not Want To Leave

  • 4 of 5

My wife and two adult sons (1 a Senior in college & 1 who works and lives in Irvine CA) had a great time in the house. My son who lives in CA had no desire to eat out and the complete kitchen & patio grill allowed us to have some great meals.

Enjoyed the bikes, beach chairs, cooler and all the other stuff that makes the beach fun but can't bring with you on vacation when you fly.

Staff was was great.

Highly recommend!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for 2 months and it was better than I ever dreamed. Sheryl and Richard were wonderful, continually checking in to make sure everything was going well. The front patio gets sun starting at noon and the garden surrounding it is very well kept up. The house itself is the perfect 2-bedroom with lots of room for the kitchen, dining area and living room. Even better than the beach view is that the walk is very short and the beach itself is absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to go back next year!

The property surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The property was as advertised- clean, close to the beach and stocked with all the necessary amenities. The patio is great for enjoying the beautiful sunsets.

The previous reviewers were correct- if you experience ANY issues, they are happy to help. During our stay the family room TV stopped working (these things happen). Richard and Rollo came over to quickly assess the situation and determined that the TV needed to be replaced. Richard went out, to multiple stores, )on a Saturday night) and replaced the TV that same night. What service!!

We were pleased and would definitely rent again!
