We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is quite spacious with comfortable beds and well-appointed living area. The outside terrace is wonderful for eating/relaxing outdoors in a very quiet neighborhood. Even though you feel far away from civilization it's a quick drive to coffee shops, grocery stores and 15 min. down Hwy 101 to malls, etc. The one frustration we had was our limited cell service (we're on Sprint). To really use our cell phones we had to drive 5 min. down the rode but another carrier might have better coverage in the area. The WiFi worked fine. If you plan to cook many meals, you may be challenged although I feel pretty sure the owner (who lives upstairs) will try to get you whatever you need. There are basic pots and pans and dishes but not much else. We did fine but cooking a full meal might not be very easy. We loved our stay and thoroughly enjoyed our host. She's an artist and the apartment is full of her lovely artwork---not something you find in many VRBOs. We have children and hope to return soon.
