This was our first time renting a beach house for our family vacation. The property didn't feel like a "beach" house - it was warm and inviting. The property was perfect for our grandchildren. The owners really put some thought into the layout - converting their garage into a play room for the children was awesome. The backyard firepit made for a fun time at night. Making s'mores was an added bonus-compliments of the owners. The walk to the beach was a little bit of a walk for the young grandkids but the owners provided a large wagon for us to haul our stuff down to the beach so we used that to haul the little ones when they got tired. The location is close to Legoland, Sea World and San Diego Zoo so when we wanted out of the sun we had other options near by. It was a great vacation and we plan to do it again!!! The owners are friendly and very accomodating. Great experience!!
