Perfect house for our Family!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed working with Alexei on this trip. He was quick to answer questions for us, and we felt well taken care of. We were a group of 3 families with 4 kids and we were more than comfortable. The house was fantastic, very nice. Got a report the upstairs guest bed was not so great, but the rest of the beds were SOOO comfy. The 2 kitchens were such a great bonus. We are coming back in Summer, and cannot wait. Love it!

We spent the weekend at Casa de Alma with a group of friends and really enjoyed the house! However, beware that you can only include 10 guests. We had 12 guests in our party and communicated this fact with Alexei the property manager multiple days prior to travel. He quickly told us it would be no problem to have two extra guests. However, when we arrived at the community, Alexei was not responding to our communications and requests for clarity when we learned the extra two individuals would be disallowed from entering the Las Gaviotas community. Two people in our party were refused at the gate and had to wait on the street in front for over three hours! In order to resolve the issue we had to rent another property by knocking on neighbors doors. We quickly found that Alexei does this often to guests and he seems very unpopular within the community.

Again, the house is beautiful, but only include 10 within your party and don't expect the property manager to be helpful. Very very disappointed in our interactions with Alexei which almost ruined the weekend if it was not for some very kind neighbors.

Owner's Response: Dear Brian Thank you for your review The association rules are 2 people per bedroom. This is strictly enforced. This is clearly stated on the site. I have been managing homes here in las gaviotas for the past 6 years and manage several homes. I Live here in las gaviotas and I only have had few guests that dont like the rules But there is nothing i can do about the rules. I feel sorry that you felt I did not give you great service. I'm sure that both of us are aware that it is very difficult to please everyone, but as long as i do my best for my guests and my home owners that is all that i can do. I look forward to being of service to you in the future respectfully, Alexei

Beautiful Getaway with Friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a group of 11 friends and had the most wonderful time. The house itself is beautiful and well furnished. Everything you need is there. The balcony overlooks the ocean and is the perfect place to watch a sunset. It's a short walk down to surf or you can pop down to the pool and hot tub. But Alexei truly made our stay the best it possibly could be. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we could possibly need. I highly recommend a wine tour and having a chef prepare dinner at the house for you. Everything was delicious! You're in good hands here.
