5 stars out of 5! Awesome house, neighborhood, & location. Lots of room for everyone, great game room, comfy beds, nice (granite counters & travertine floors) lighting. Everything you need for a beach vacation is in the house! Street fair one block away. Everything is within walking distance. Beach is great too. Had a flawless vacation and will definitely be back!

5 stars out of 5

We had an amazing stay at this property. Not only was it spacious and well-appointed, the location was only a few blocks from main street and the pier. We appreciated the garage for parking as well as the extra amenities like beach towels, shampoo, paper towels, etc. Having rented many years before in this area, this property was by far the best we ever rented.

Please call or email to confirm pricing, as the auto-quote feature generates incorrect results from time to time. We require a one month minimum stay. If you are looking for a shorter stay give us a call as we have many options available. We look forward to working with you.

About Mike and Chanti


I am Mike Hermanns born and raised in Huntington and we have been on VRBO since 2002 and we manage quite a few furnished rentals. I went to Edison High School, college in San Luis Obispo, and eventually came back to Orange county. I can not believe what a vacation destination my sleepy little town has turned into. I was one of the first furnished rentals in the downtown Huntington Beach 15 years ago. I look forward to sharing all that this town has to offer with you. My wife Chanti and I manage and own quite few furnished homes in the area and are the owners of So Cal Hot Properties L.L.C., a property management company specializing in furnished rentals that I founded in 2002. You will find hundreds of wonderful reviews that we have worked very hard to get over the last 15 years so you can be assured that you are in good hands when you book with us. Please call, text or email us with any questions.

Best Regards,

Mike Hermanns

Family reunion

  • 4 of 5

Overall good. Single thermostat in kitchen for 3 floors made it a little difficult to regulate temp. Needs maintenance . Numerous burned out bulbs. Hinge on kitchen cabinet. door broken so door not useable,. Has whole house sound system but no instructions. Patio plastic furniture has numerous cracks in stress areas. Can pinch skin if not careful. Grill need terminal cleaning.

Owner's Response: Hello James, Thank you for your review. We had the hinge repaired on the small cabinet in the kitchen but with all of the other storage I do not fee that it was much of an issue. Lights are all replaced with LED bulbs to save on electricity and I will inspect the patio furniture. As for the heating. this home has multiple fireplaces downstairs, in the TV room and in the master bedroom, did you try using any of those? The instructions for the sound system are in the welcome guide in the TV room. I will try to make those more visible. I wish you would have called me, I could have emailed the instructions to you as well. Best Regards, Mike

Very pleased with the house

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was exactly as advertised. The location was perfect. We walked to the beach, Dukes, the pier, and Main Street. The house floor plan allowed the 11 of us to spread out---places for the children, the adults, plenty of very nice TV's to choose!! We highly recommend this beautiful house and would stay there again, without hesitation, if the opportunity arises. Furnishings are quite nice. Bedding and linens were nice and abundant. If I had to whine about something, it would be the condition of the two bar stools that are in need of reupholstering. The ice cube trays need replacing.

Great Location in Surf City!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 8 spent a week at this unit. There was plenty of room for all of us. Communication with Mike was quick and easy from time of booking, through our stay. Mike even stopped by on check in day to make sure we were all set. The house is very large with high end finishes. We did find a lot of bugs, which hadn't been reported in other reviews; but bought some spray at the store to keep them at bay. There is no AC in the house, but we were still comfortable with open windows and fans. We never felt too warm.

Walking to beach, shopping, restaurants was 5 minutes. A large grocery store is less than 2 miles away. There are plenty of boogie boards, beach toys, umbrellas, etc. that we took advantage of and really enjoyed. Also, we arranged to rent some bikes from Mike (at a lower rate than bike rental services around town) and they were in the garage when we arrived.

All in all this is a very nice house in a great location.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 9 rented this property for a week in August, 2017. The location is fantastic for walking to the beach, stores and restaurants. We loved the beach and Sanchos Tacos right next door. There were plenty of beach towels and umbrellas at the house. We requested extra beach chairs, which were delivered.

The house is very large and comfortable. It was clean and the bathrooms were good for showers. One bedroom is more appropriate for children with 3 twin beds. We called it the dorm room! At night the upper bunk was very hot. However, there were fans in every room that helped with the heat and noise. There were some issues with flies on the front porch. Not sure what type of vegetation may have caused that. We spent more time on the third floor patio.

The property manager and owner were wonderful. They came right over when the dryer wasn't working and to address a few broken items in the kitchen. The trash is picked up on Tuesdays. It was hard leaving additional trash when we left on Saturday.

It was a great vacation and the property is special.

Fun week in Huntington Beach

  • 4 of 5

This property is in an ideal location near to the beach, shops and restaurants. It had plenty of space for our family of 8. The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and updated. The beach towels, boogie boards, chairs are plentiful, so we did not need to provide any of our own beach gear. The dining room table was large so that all of us could eat our evening meal together. When we arrived, we discovered that there was no ice maker nor ice cube trays in the house. I let Mike know about this and he supplied ice cube trays to us. The kitchen also had an infestation of ants and roaches and Wi-Fi was spotty. I brought these concerns to Mike's attention after we checked out, and he assured me that exterminator services have been scheduled and that the Wi-Fi has been improved by Spectrum. Overall, a great place.

Big family, superb accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 thoroughly enjoyed this home. It is located just a half block from the beach and two or three blocks from the major shopping and restaurants. Also, just three blocks from the Catholic church (for us Catholics). The home was spacious, with ample sleeping space for a large family or party and a garage that fit our large SUV. With this as home base, we easily enjoyed surfing and other activities at Huntington Beach, easy drives to La Jolla, Los Angeles, Pacific Palisades and even trekked up to Sequoia National Forest. Thank you for a great stay.
