In December of 2013 we had spent a lovely family vacation celebrating our parents 46th anniversary at La Selva Beach. We couldn't stop talking about how fun it was. Then 2 months later my parents were in a horrible car accident, my Mother died & Dad lived after a 5 week stay in hospital. We've had a rough year grieving and new roles in care giving to my father with a traumatic brain injury. When the year anniversary of my mothers passing was insight, we wanted to celebrate her life & my Dad's survival at the last place we all were together. We decided to choose a different rental property from our 2013 trip. We returned to La Selva beach & was blessed with this property! We needed some special accommodations for my Dad & this place had 98% of them!!
The property was clean(no musty odors), spacious & a great floor plan for families or groups! The four full bathrooms was a luxury that accommodated everyone's needs! Even though were at the beach with gorgeous multi coloured sunsets, having two great Smart TVs was a great for night time down time! We used both decks & appreciated the safe and sturdy steps to the beach(approximately 30) for elderly father & 4 year old!! Beds were surprisingly comfy with fresh smelling linens & plenty of fresh towels. We also loved having the beverage fridge! There was sand toys, boogie boards, a fishing pole and chairs....only a few things that would improve this 5 star property! We had some warm weather & it was very, very hot with only one ceiling fan and a/c didn't keep up until natures A/C kicked in the P.M. Some little fans would be helpful! The bunk beds didn't have a ladder that we could find. If you ARENT an early riser or require an afternoon nap...the master bedroom brings in the beautiful sunlight bright, early & thru-out the day! Acceptance of Pets, my dad missed his little comfort companion!
We all left our trip wishing we could have stayed longer! The partial week was picked for us because of a traumatic family loss, yet we were blessed with a beautiful property, beach and weather! It was such a great place to grieve, heal & then CELEBRATE life and family. There really isnt a better place to do so. We had had so much planned for our days, but enjoyed ourselves so much we never left the house & beach! We now have something POSITIVE to look forward to each year as we mark another year without one parent, but appreciate the survival of another. Thank you for a lovely time in a place that felt like home!
