My husband, daughter, myself and our two dogs enjoyed our stay in this lovely downtown area home. The house is very well set-up with everything you could need (kitchen supplies, toiletries, paper towel, cleaning supplies, etc). We made good use of the washer/dryer having a four month old, and it was handy to have a dishwasher. The was thoroughly cleaned before we arrived, and Lauren was kind enough to coordinate an earlier than anticipated arrival, including re-booking the cleaner to accommodate us. Everything was comfortable and functional for sure, and the decor is nice.
Our dogs were easily managed in the home. There was a nice big yard for them, and we could leave them in the house if we wanted a pet-free outing.
We met four of the neighbours when we were unpacking our truck, and met a few more when we were out for walks. It was about a ten minute walk to the downtown area on Sherman, and perhaps 20 minutes to the beach. There are lots of restaurants and little shops on Sherman Avenue. We recommend Fire Artisan Pizza and Hudson's Hamburgers. There are a couple grocery stores downtown, and lots of other amenities within a short driving distance.
We enjoyed the City and would recommend this home if you plan to visit.
