Growing up in Orange County my life long dream was to live at the beach. Found this perfect little beach place with very close access to major arteries and all things beach, sand and seaside life!

Wonderful vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect getaway for our family. The house is well stocked with everything needed for a week at the beach and the location could not be anymore ideal. BJ was a wonderful hostess and made us feel right at home. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Property is clean, well put together, and stocked with all of the Amenities of your own home.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay! A great space and great location. A rocks throw from the water and a short walk to the pier. The grocery store being one block over was a huge plus as well. The convenience of having the washer and dryer, chairs, towels, bikes, cooler, beach toys, BBQ, and kitchen utilities made this an A+ property and BJs help made this an A+ stay. Can't wait to stay again next summer! Thanks!

Great location for any type of stay!

  • 5 of 5

BJ was an excellent host! She was readily available by phone if we needed anything and was just a pleasure to be around. The house is the perfect distance from the beach, so you dont have people walking by constantly but it takes less than five minutes to get to the sand. There are plenty of restaurants, grocery stores and coffee shops (Alta coffee was amazing). Seven of us fit comfortably with an air mattress.

The only hangup was that although there are two showers, two people can't shower at the same time or one of the showers loses all pressure. But we were able to stagger our time and it worked out just fine!

We will definitely be interested in staying again! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review -we're glad you had a a good time!! And, thanks for the heads up regarding use of the tankless hot water. We will certainly be more explicit in explaining operation, and less likely to allow last minute single adult additions over 6 adults to guests allowed, especially age 30+ single/moms in party mode. Party time/after beach -Friday-Saturday showers do sometimes tend to dilute the area water pressure a bit. There are actually 3 hot water showers including outside shower and, especially in our family area, very few, if any, problems with water pressure even with all three correctly operating at the same time.(even with the washer going)!! (-;. Always let your host know of any problems right away, like water pressure, when they ask- our goal is full enjoyment of the facilities!! We especially love family visitors, come back with your families!!
