Our family of six (4 small children) enjoyed almost a full week at this rental property. The house was in great shape, and it was better than advertised. The location was also better than expected as it was a very short walk across the PCH to a secluded beach. The property has two stories, and a nice deck which makes it feel bigger than its actual square footage.
Originally, there was some confusion about the price on the property giving it was right before Easter. The owner was flexible with pricing, and gave me a discount from the full "holiday" rate. It turns out that after we agreed to a price, someone else offered him more days at the full holiday rate, but the owner agreed to honor his verbal agreement even though he gave up some money to stick with us. That said a lot to me. Given this was my first ever VRBO rental, I came away very encouraged.
The owner was also flexible in allowing me to pay via e-check even though he had to go through some hassles to get that process setup. That provided protection and convenience for me, which I also appreciated. The instructions from the owner were very detailed on how to use the TV and the internet, and everything went very smoothly. The property manager was also very helpful when he let us into the house.
This is a great place to stay, and I think the property manager and owner were great people to work with. In summary, my expectations were exceeded, and I'm grateful for the chance we had to stay at this house. I don't know if I can do the hotel experience with a small family again after being spoiled like this. The only complaint I have is that now my wife wants me to buy her a similar home...not going to happen!
