We had a large group for the weekend, and Tiffany was very quick to respond to the initial inquiry and subsequent correspondence. It helped us finalize the place very quickly.
The home itself is amazing. Beautiful ocean views, quick access to the ocean, nice comfortable furnishings, comfortable beds and some extra sleeping mats, well equipped kitched, washer, dryer, outside shower. There is a great deck in front of the house to enjoy the ocean views, and at the back as well for barbeque.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay immensely! I would highly recommend this place to anyone for a great relaxing oceanside weekend. I hope to be back soon :)
A really lovely location on the bluff above the beach. The house
has a nice open feel, and a great backyard for entertaining and
bar-b-ques. Not exactly a "romantic getaway" property, but very
nice for a family trip to the beach.
The home has a lived-in feel. The kitchen could have been
cleaned more thoroughly. Not perfect, but pleasant.
This was our third visit to this property. As always we found it to be in good condition, well stocked and freshly cleaned. We saw no evidence of problems described by other reviewers.
The home is perfectly located for walks to the beach and around the village. The range hood and front deck furniture have been replaced making the house even more comfortable. The owners allows pets and our golden retriever had a great time walking around the village and surveying the scene from the upstairs balcony. The house as a whole is very livable and is our favorite place to stay in this area.
We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning again and again. Thank you for sharing your Beach House!
We stayed here for 10 days because our son was getting married in the area. The home is in a great spot right across from the beach- we had a great view of the sunset and of sea lions playing in the waves! This house comfortably sleeps about 6 adults, anymore than that and you are probably pushing it so not sure where they are getting 8-12 people can stay here. We only had 6 people staying so it worked perfectly!
We just love the La Selva area. Priority this year was finding a property which would allow pets which this property did. The property itself was a good experience. Normally this time of the year we avoid the fog but not so lucky this year. The location was nice being across from the bluff. We used the private beach area multiple times but do to the hill if you have really young or elderly people you will need to get in your car and drive a short block to the parking area, I do not agree with the one review that the place was dirty. We arrived as the house keeper was finishing up and the place was clean when we entered. that being said this is a tired property requiring maintenance throughout. Sticking doors, (we actually had someone get stuck in the bathroom for an hour while we were at the beach) windows without screens, broken garage door, were the norm with the most challenging being the plumbing and trying to balance the hot water to cold or to hot. The deck area off the master upstairs has a fantastic view but really lacks decent chairs or a table to relax. We were able to work through all these issues and we would return if looking for a place to stay with the pets. Mike who manages the property was quick to respond on needed items such as paper towels, toilet paper and propane. Based on our previous experience of vacationing in the La Selva area I would give this property a 3.5 out of 5, would return if we brought our pet.
My daughter wanted to be married by the ocean and we found that they could have their ceremony on the bluff overlooking La Selva Beach. It was right across the street from this residence! A PERFECT location for the family to gather then go to the ceremony and reception after held at the ClubHouse.
I love this house! I arrived the Monday before the wedding to make sure all of the supplies for the decorations were there. I had my close friend stay a few nights with me as well as my husband since we live in San Jose it was convenient for him to commute back for work.
The weekend of the wedding we were able to have a place for my son, his wife and baby; my daughter (the Bride) and her girlfriend and my husband and I to stay. It was centrally located to the event areas. We had plenty of room for the decorations to be staged and when the time came for the dressing of the bride and her friends, the upstairs bedroom and balcony made an excellent are area for the formal photos. THe lighting was wonderful as the sunshine streamed in for beautiful photos of the Bride!
After the big party it was so nice to have the house to "come Home to" for then much needed rest! Waking up across the street from the view and the bluff area was so peaceful. The sunsets from the balcony with a nice refreshment made a rough day melt away. I want to get back to the house for my next relaxation vacation.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!! We loved the house!
