There are many things that make this a great property: (1) Location - across the street from the beach; within walking distance of surf/kayak, duffy boat rentals, gondola boat rides and many shops; close to Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza for incredible shopping and dining. (2) Patio - we loved the beautiful, large, enclosed patio; it was the perfect place to sit, read, enjoy, and grill. (3) Beaches - 2 private beaches on the island - one for the kids and one for adults AND kids - with a great water slide (4) Owners - The whole family isabsolutely the BEST. They all work hard to make sure her property is well-maintained and that visitors are happy. There is care and concern for visitors that is genuine. We would highly recommend this property for a relaxing, safe and comfortable holiday vacation! We wish we could have stayed longer!
