Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully decorated and is very comfortable. There is everything you could ever need supplied, including ALL the beach gear you can think of. The beds are extremely comfortable and the kitchen is spacious and well equipped. They even provide upgraded cable, something we rarely find. It was very much like a home away from home. The only warning I wish I had been aware of, the "stroll" to the beach is quite a hill and when pulling the cart with beach items, it was a bit difficult coming back uphill. The walk to the beach from the parking lot is equally steep. But the beach is beautiful and quiet, we enjoyed watching all the surfers. I would return to this condo in a heartbeat, it is even better than described.

Very nice

The only bad part about the trip was the extremely noisy neighbors that showed up. Glad they weren’t here the entire week.

The Name Says It All!

  • 5 of 5

The word "awesome" is truly the most accurate description of this condo and our stay! The VRBO pictures do indeed compare with what you actually see in-person. The unit is Impeccably furnished with high-quality bedding, comfortable furniture and other furnishings. The attention to detail with small touches like soaps, beach towels and beach chairs, cleaning supplies, cooking spices, etc...made us feel immediately comfortable as we got settled in after a long flight. It is a quiet condo with very little noise from other units or from the nearby road. Its location to SoCal beaches and LA/San Diego is ideal. Looking forward to another great stay at Casa de Awesome next year!

Great winter quarters

  • 5 of 5

The past winter was our second spending 3 months at this comfortably refurbished condo. Location is superb, about a mile from Salt Creek Beach, and it’s a spectacular walk. The property managers are consistently friendly and responsive.
