10 family members stayed here over Christmas and had a wonderful time. There was plenty of room to spread out (we rearranged the living room just a bit to accommodate a Brio train), we enjoyed sunrise views with coffee, daily paddleboarding and walks to the ocean side. Our family loves to cook and the kitchen made it easy to make all the good things we’d hoped for. Love the bbq and balconies. It was an easy place to have a 2 year old with us - the two queen bedroom is a great family accommodation. Our greeter, Suzi, couldn’t have been nicer. We all agreed we would happily stay here again. Thank you!
We rented the entire house of this 2 level property. It had enough space and even provided privacy when needed for our large extended family of 13. We used the larger upstairs unit for meal preparation, dining and as a gathering place for the entire family. There was enough room in the living area for everyone to hang out together. We all had plenty of family time.
The location could not be more perfect! Beautiful and quiet gorgeous waterfront views, but just a few minutes walk to all the fun activities PB and Mission beach have to offer. The older folks enjoyed sitting on the terrace(s) while the grandkids played on the grass or in the sand with the many sand toys provided. Exciting Belmont Park, with it's huge roller coaster was just a 5 minute walk, yet the house was absolutely quiet. Great surf spots, bars and restaurants were all within a short walking distance. Both units are very well equipped with everything one would need, including a high chair and a Pak n Play in each unit.
Yes, parking can be tricky as clearly stated in the listing, but with some careful and creative maneuvering we were able to fit a mid-size (7 seater) SUV, a smaller SUV and a mid-sized car in the spaces provided.
Most rentals in PB and Mission Beach have parking problems. It really wasn't too big of a deal for us.
The only slight drawback is that the house is a bit dated. The furnishing are being replaced by more up-to date items, 95% are updated, so there are just a very few that still need updating. That said, the place is absolutely impeccably clean!! When we were getting ready to leave, we had the chance to meet the friendly cleaning crew while they were cleaning the downstairs unit. They appeared to be a hard-working family that seemed to take pride in their work. The beds and linens were very very nice and comfy.
Nicole at Pacific Sands Vacations was ABSOLUTELY incredible! She made sure that we had everything we needed (we never needed a thing..and everything worked perfectly), and even offered to reimburse us for Pak n Play sheets if we needed to purchase some. We did not. We were also able to extend our stay last minute on each end for a very reasonable fee. She was just great!
All and all we feel very fortunate to have discovered this tranquil oasis that completely met all the family members needs..from the older folks to the very young grandchildren. We will definitely stay here for our next family reunion.
Thank you Nicole and Pacific Sands Vacations!
