Guestbook comments from the owner
Larry Jones , Sunnyvale, CA
We rented this house to bring the family together for our daughter's wedding. It could not have been any better! The owners are wonderful, they were pouring wine for the family who arrived ahead of us. The house is gorgeous. Everything is top notch, no expense spared. It is about a mile from the beach which is great because the beach is often fogged in depending what time of year you stay. We had nothing but sun which let us serve breakfast on the patio and a barbeque on the built-in grill. The bedrooms are all huge with plenty of bathrooms. The hot tub and gas fire pit made a great way to end the day. You won't go wrong with this house!
