This is a nice set up. It is near the freeway and the beach. I walked to Butterfly Beach and back on the sand every day. We used the BBQ a couple times. Place was clean and had very easy check in and responsive care takers when I had a question about the fancy stove.

We spent Christmas here with our 2 grown boys .The property is so cosy and comfortable! The check in process was easy and communication with the property Co was great! It rained a lot but the sun room was the perfect place to hang out, bright and cheery! The kitchen was well stocked, the beds pretty comfortable and honestly, we wouldn't have changed a thing! The yard and deck are tranquil and inviting. Easy access to everything-grocery, shopping and freeway. Just a small note, the beach within walking distance is really only for viewing. The high tide made it unwalkable, but there is a gorgeous beach very close by that you can walk to and enjoy, maybe a 10 minute walk. We would definitely stay here again!

I was pleasantly surprised to rent a beautiful cottage in a great neighborhood. It was within walking distance of the beach, major restaurants, shopping. Safe and friendly neighborhood. We all slept soundly in our beds. We only made breakfast in the kitchen, otherwise we ate out. If you are planning on cooking a lot you may want to bring some of your favorite pots and pans, utensils, coffee mugs, coffee, glasses, sponges, towels, knives (if it is allowable). The kitchen has a first class range and oven. The kitchen is stocked but if you plan on cooking major meals it would be nicer to have more and better. Like there are hardly any coffee mugs and the ones there are eclectic and mainly small mugs. My preference is for uniform and bigger mugs with a nice ledge for my thumb. No big deal, just my preference. The pans were not Pampered Chef like I like (again, just a preference). The dishwasher works great but is puny. They did have ground coffee for one pot, (thank you-that was awesome to have some on hand), some K cups and a variety of tea and sweeteners, which we loved. But, if you drink a lot of coffee or tea, bring your own. Vons market and CVS is close by. Quiet lovely neighborhood. Their yard is cute and private. If we had more time it would have been lovely to spend time on their deck. Surprisingly this home has no driveway so parking is strictly on the street. We drove in one car so it was easy to park in the designated area next to the house. Never quite figured out how to set the right water temperature or pressure in the shower. Small compact bathroom so it was good we were considerate of each other and cleaned up each time we used the bathroom. The towels are really good quality bright white. Their stackable washer/dryer is efficient. The couch felt cozy. Fun to have a mud room to take shoes and coats off and have a place to sit; as it keeps the rest of the house clean. We were so busy we never turned on the TV. Wish we could have stayed longer. Even though there were things that could have been improved (which really aren't problems), I'm only complaining because it feels like in a review I am required to throw in some critiques. In the big picture, we loved our stay and felt like we were the luckiest people on earth to stay in this adorable home and hope to return one day.
