We liked it so much we came back for a second visit....

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, very comfortable home with incredible views and lots of light. We had 3 families ..... 6 adults and 6 kids ... .plenty of room to spread out. Location is perfect - no need to shuttle the kids here and there -simply walk to the beach and relax. Very responsive owners that will take care of anything quickly.

Great house for large group

  • 4 of 5

House location & house itself was great. Rooms, living room, bathroom were spacious. Kitchen was well equipped and spacious. Great house for large group or big family.

Media room was little small for large group, we had a hard time with was figuring out the media room TV. No HD channels. Carpets had stains all over the house especially on the stairs. Sofas also had lots of stains.

Overall great weekend. Thank You.

Good location, but items in the house need some attention

  • 3 of 5

The location and layout of the house were great for our vacation with extended family. There were enough bedrooms and various sitting areas for everyone to spread out. The view of the ocean from the house was wonderful. The kitchen was well-stocked and also had kid-friendly dishes and utensils. The house was nicely decorated, and the bedding looked new. The beach was a short walk across the street, and up and down a wooden stairway. It was not a problem even for the 2-year-old in our group. We were happy to be able to use the beach toys and items provided by the owners. The owners also accommodated our last minute reservation, which we appreciated.

Despite the great location, there were a number of housekeeping issues that were disappointing. Every bathroom had either a broken or missing towel rack. The garbage cans did not have any liners, and the inside of the kitchen garbage can was dirty when we arrived. There were no garbage bags in the house. The carpet in the entry way and up the stairs was dirty; and the light colored sofa cover and dining room chair covers were stained. There was also a torn screen door and a missing rung on the bunk bed ladder. The clock/timer had been pulled out of the oven. We did not hear back from the owners after notifying them of these issues.

Overall, our family had a great vacation here; however, we felt that there were too many maintenance issues for the price that we paid.

This house was perfect! Spacious with multiple seating areas. The views are indescribable. My pictures didn't do the sunset justice.

Great house for families

  • 5 of 5

Unlike some houses in the Parajo Dunes development this house has a very family friendly lay out. Spacious rooms with a floor plan that makes perfect sense. The owners also provide toys and games for kids ages 2-10 and a fun kids room with bunk beds. There are chairs for the beach and boogie boards for those so inclined. I would absolutely stay there again.

Perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! Large, roomy and comfortable. Everything was in great condition but not so fancy that we didn't feel comfortable letting the kids be kids. It was a perfect fit for 2 families with 4 adults and 8 kids. And right across the street from the beach! We went everyday...what a treat for us moms to slip away while everyone still slept and get in a morning workout in the cool, ocean air. We really appreciated the numerous bath and beach towels plus on-site washer and dryer. With that many kids there was a lot of laundry piling up.

Also, the nearby eucalyptus trees made for some amazing climbing trees!

Thank you for sharing your home. We hope to be back soon!
