“Great House for Family Vacation”

Exactly as described and with pleasant surprises. This house is like a luxury hotel suite with matching silver, good glassware and holiday like bright place settings and serving dishes. Everything works! Nice big TV with cable, Netflix and more. Home theater system with DVD player, surround sound and even a Wii system. Wireless WiFi works perfectly with really good speed. The view from the upper deck, kitchen and family area is spectacular. We had a full moon at the summer solstice and clear nights to enjoy the stars. Linens were excellent, great summer colors and very fresh. We enjoyed everything including the hot tub and the fire ring. Smores and more on the fire. The large Weber grill, plumbed into the natural gas supply was big enough for eight huge rib eye steaks at once. Actually, we could have added four more steaks! The house is very thoughtfully appointed and supplied with all necessities like tissues, toilet tissue, paper towels, coffee filters. Also, there is a nice library of books for adults and kids, board games, jig saw puzzles and DVD movies. You can tell the owners have set this place up for themselves on occasion and the guests really benefit.
Bikes are in good shape and helmets are provided as well as a pump for those tires.
Washer, dryer and dishwasher are in great condition and work perfectly. Instructions are provided and are really non-oppressive. Owner also provided a nice listing of places to go and things to do. Especially good for unique dining and shopping experiences.
Family (all 10 of us, from grandparents to grandchildren) had a wonderful time and would repeat.
If you have a State Park pass, bring it. Some of the closest beaches are State Parks. Parking inside a state park is better than trying to find good parking out on the streets.

The house does have good parking. Three cars easily fit in the driveway and another car could be in the garage.

“Perfect for our Group of Active Women”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The house was beautiful and was two stories with an outdoor upper deck and nice backyard with a hot tub and fire pit. It is 1/4 of a block from the ocean with plenty of ocean views. The walk to great bakeries, coffee houses, and wineries was a great morning and afternoon routine. We are all active so some of us ran and biked in surrounding neighborhoods. I can't say enough on how nice it was with two indoor gas fireplaces and a stunning kitchen to cook in.

“Excellent location, large, modern and well appointed”
Reviewed 2 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Just steps from the sea cliffs, this house has plenty of room and everything you'll need for a comfortable and memorable visit. There are 2 separate living areas, one up and one down. The kitchen has a multitude of pots, pans and accessories, no need to bring anything other than food. It is located in an upscale neighborhood, but is only minutes away from all essential services. I give it a top recommendation and would enjoy renting it for a week again.
