This was our first trip to the San Diego area and we loved it. We found this house on Homeaway and really liked the pictures so we went with it and were really happy with our choice. The beach house really is just as it is shown and described. We were greeted with flowers-an appreciated touch. It was a big deal for us to save up for this trip, so as silly as it seems, the fact that they cared enough to leave us flowers meant a lot. The house is very big and is right on the beach. The best feature of this home is its location. You could not pick a better spot in So Cal than this one. We have kids so we wanted a nice safe beach with lots of sand where they could play in the sand to their hearts content and then be able to run into the house whenever they wanted or were hungry We also enjoyed how much fun we had using the the bon fire pit on the beach. We used it for both lunch time and dinner time. The bedrooms were clean and fresh with quality bedding and beds. The kitchen was very very nice but we only used the fridge and microwave and used the beach BBQ instead. Hot dogs and hamburgers cooked out on a beach BBQ do taste better than the ones made in our kitchen at home- why is that? I would suggest to people renting this house to bring bikes. We didnt have bikes and there were many bike trials and places it wold have been fun to ride bikes to. But then again this trip was all about being on the beach and we were. There was a welcome book inside the house that suggested we do a scavenger hunt on the beach, a sandcastle building contest and roast marshmallows at the bonfire- we did all three and it was a blast. Thank you for a great stay. We want to come back and stay longer next time!
