Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time here! We were impressed on how close the beach was. The place was perfect and we will be coming back again. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Michelle was very prompt on getting back with any questions and Rollo was very sweet and hospitable. Our favorite place to eat was chronic taco and the donut shop across the street by Jack in the box.

Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We took our teenage daughter and her friends on vacation and it was the perfect place for us. We spent a couple days doing beach things and took day trips on the other days - San Diego Zoo, Disneyland, Universal Hollywood, etc. So much more fun than hotel rooms as we were able to cook and share meals together, sip coffee on the balcony and let the girls hang out in the large master bedroom. Stores and restaurants are within walking distance as well. The girls LOVED trying the boogie boards stocked in the garage. We miss it already!

Terrible stay.

  • 1 of 5

The landlords were very rude and harsh. We were evicted just two days into our stay. They watched our every move on cameras they had distributed throughout the house, I felt very unwelcomed and was treated very poorly just because I was a "springbreaker". I had no intentions at all of ever throwing a party or doing anything that wasn't aloud in the house but was never givin the chance to show them that we just wanted a nice vacation away from home. I do not recommend anyone to stay in this house!

Owner's Response: The tenant broke her terms of the rental agreement on several instances, first she wrote that this was a family trip and that there would 10 people staying at unit. She had quite a lot more than 10 people staying at the unit. When we asked her about the number of tenants staying in the unit she stated "I can't control who comes in and out of this house" We received several complaints from the neighbors from the minute they arrived on the premises. There was numerous cases of beer being taken into the property and a crate full of alcohol, from vodka, tequila, rum. There was pictures taken of the mom taking in the crate of alcohol. Neighbors in the area were quite concerned because the traffic of people looked very young, minors. In the first 24 hours of their stay one of the guests staying at the unit actually came down the stairs stumbling and picked up a package and walked away with the package that belonged to another unit, he had to be told to put it back. The cameras on the property are placed only the exterior of the building for just this kind of tenant issues. There are absolutely no cameras on the interior of the house. We asked the mother and only adult on the premises to remove all the alcohol from the property, there is to be no underage drinking on this property, which is stated in our rental agreement. We stated that no more than 10 tenant are allowed to stay. Due to the issues that were brought on by the tenants noncompliance we found it extremely necessary to terminate this reservation. I feel this group acted in a deceitful manner from the beginning and their intentions were to come rent this house and party. They had no real concern for our property or the other tenants that had to endure their rude and very disrespectful behavior. And then to top it off and write a bad review very disappointing! The HappiTravels family works around the clock to provide an exceptional experience for our guests.

Wonderful Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our family vacation and it was a wonderful experience! The house is right next to a great spot on the beach. It's close enough to the pier to walk or ride bikes to, but not too close so it wasn't crowded. There were beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, boogie boards, and bikes for us to enjoy during our stay. The house itself was very nice and clean, large kitchen and living room, beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of space for our group of 8 people. We loved it! It was a great trip! Thank you!

Had everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely Labor Day weekend at the house. Rollo greeted us on arrival and was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. He even helped hold a street parking spot for our second car! I forgot one of the door codes and he immediately got back to me even though it was late Friday night. So nice!

The unit was SPOTLESS on arrival - so clean! We had plenty of room for our family - my husband and I, two teenagers, two middle schoolers and 4 and 5 year old. The master bed room is enormous. Seriously humongous. Having a kind bed was so great. The secondary bedrooms fit the older kids easily, and the little ones slept in the master on the daybed/trundle and we did not feel crowded at all. All the rooms had fans which was awesome as well.

The kitchen had everything we needed - dishes, pots, pans, utensils, knives, pitchers etc. It was summer so we did have to bring our own bed linens and towels, but that wasn't a big deal at all. The garage was STOCKED with beach goodies like chairs, coolers, paddleball, boogie boards. The garage is small and has a funny angle to get into it, but our smaller suv crossover did fit into it. A suburban wouldn't, but our Veracruz was fine.

Our family loved using the bikes, which was one of the best features of the house, especially with 10 and 11 year old boys! We could walk easily to donuts, pizza, a park and a little Circle K for milk or beers.

The street was super peaceful and quiet, but not at all like you felt you had to whisper. Just families and locals, no partying college kids, even over a holiday weekend. It was so relaxing!

We would definitely go back and recommend it! The property management was professional, accommodating and friendly and our deposit was returned I think by the evening we checked out. Literally 30 seconds to the beach - it was great!
