Great location, great home!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and her friends really enjoyed spending a weekend at the house. It was pretty close to Disneyland and all 7 of us were comfortable. We got up early Sunday and made the short walk to the beach, very happy with the location and would definitely consider coming back.

Great spot for the family

  • 4 of 5
My family (my wife and young son, my brother, his wife and their young son) rented this place over Thanksgiving. The property was a perfect size for our group and very comfortable. George was very responsive and helpful and everything we needed was just where he said it would be. He also accommodated our early arrival into the unit. Great beach location - absolutely no problem walking there with young kids. The house is also close to a bunch of great shopping and restaurants. I loved the back deck for sitting outside and relaxing. We would recommend this property and we would definitely come back!

Nice rental, but many issues arose....

  • 2 of 5
My family had a week-long reunion on the Peninsula. Our large group was divided between two houses; six adults and two young children stayed at this first-floor unit. While the listing did reflect the appearance and amenities, we had multiple issues arise during the week.

The unit was reasonably clean, but some relatively simple upkeep/maintenance would have helped a lot. The ice maker didn't work, two bedroom ceiling lights and the hall light didn't work, the door handle to our bedroom was nearly falling off, a faucet in the second bathroom was very wobbly and not attached anything, bedroom doors had locks but no keys (a bad combination with little kids). The mattresses were all so soft and non-supportive that no one slept well that whole week. The west-facing wall's cathedral glass windows were neither tinted nor had a shade/blinds option, making the house so hot during the day that we had to leave from about 1pm-5pm until cooler ocean air started coming in. On our second day, an ant infestation started in those windows. We notified the homeowner and while she did respond the same day, we were given a bag of spray, ant bait and ant traps. We did not use the spray, due to respiratory issues as well as having two small children and possible reactions. The bait and traps didn't do anything. By the end of our stay the ants had progressed to inhabit the first bedroom and the kitchen. They were literally all over everything.

The house is truly steps from the beach, very convenient, and made it easy to get beach time whenever you wanted. The neighborhood generally felt safe, though apparently on weekends there is lots of extended drunken late-night partying (nothing the owners can do anything about, but be aware). There are multiple nearby attractions of the Peninsula (restaurants, shops, etc) as well Balboa Island for touring. Disneyland and Legoland and all the Orange Co. activities are good day trips. And the beach is always wonderful.

I would probably recommend this property to friends but ask them to check first to see if these issues were resolved, in particular if there was recent pest control done and the living area windows were shaded.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We have tightened the screw in the door handle and replaced the faucets as you suggested. Yes, the bedroom doors lock from inside, but isn't that how most bedrooms doors work?

Ants are a potential problem at the beach. We did offer to have the unit treated and we complied with your direction to buy allergy-friendly treatments, but as noted, you elected not to use the products. We have our units treated monthly and had an extra treatment after your departure.

The mattress firmness is a personal preference. We get a lot of compliments on our beds and mattresses. They are relatively new and of high quality. Our sheets are 100% cotton with high thread counts (400-600) for our guests' comfort.

Lastly...this is a bright & airy unit. There are drapes for the French Doors. There is a beautiful cathedral ceiling with uncovered upper windows. Most guests like it that way--after all, it IS the beach--so we respectfully disagree with the suggestion that we cover those windows.

We're happy you enjoyed the location, the bikes and boogie boards--and the new BBQ, which you liked so much that you took it to your other rental for dinner parties. We are sorry about the ants, however.

George

Great Family Vacation Beach Home

  • 4 of 5
We have a family of 8 adults, 1 child and 1 baby vacationing for Thanksgiving Break. We always got 3-4 separate hotel rooms in the past when traveling to Cali, but because our stay was an extended weekend, we felt it would be better to all stay in a house....and we are glad we did! There were 4 separate rooms which was perfect for each couple for privacy, and large open living room and kitchen space for family gathering time. The home was stocked with everything we needed from kitchenware to towels to bikes. We enjoyed having breakfast every morning together before hitting the beach, pier or drive around town. Grandpa loved hanging out in the front patio with the grandkids. There were 4 bikes available, which we used every day to bike along the beach and to the pier. The beach was really just one street over so it was really easy to access. We took lots of family pictures on the beach because the view was so pretty. Unfortunately it was a little too cold for the kids to get in the water, but they enjoyed playing in the sand!

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5
I was lucky enough to come across this rental when browsing for a beach home to celebrate an upcoming birthday with friends and family. I could not have asked for a better weekend - steps to the beach, beautiful home with plenty of space for all guests, and the great hospitality of George and his wife. We were lucky enough to rent the house during an end of summer "block party". I will happily say that the neighborhood was the icing on that birthday cake!
