The condo was beautiful, the upstairs was my favorite part. A few issues, the sink in the kitchen leaked water on the counter and the garbage disposal was very slow. The lay out was excellent, the kids and I could not figure the tv out, so they had to read and watch the beach... :) It really was quie and felt so close to the ocean. The upstairs deck was great. I thought from the photos that one bedroom was downstairs, both were up and the kids were downstairs, we made it work. The house was clean and perfect upon arrival. For all my friends who want the ocean and quiet relaxation it is perfect. It was a long way to a store or place to eat. We goggled one of the many mexican restaurants and did mostly cook at home, we went to the wharf in both Santa Cruz and Monterey and had a fun time.
