I was looking for a vacation rental for my family visiting from out-of-town for the holidays as my place was too small and I wanted to get something special. I knew I wanted a place with a water view and didn't want to pay too much. There were a lot of options on vrbo.com, and the amenities and pictures were all impressive. I didn't know which one to pick. Fortunately, I am local, and I was able to see the places in person. I won't talk about the other places. However, this place was the clear winner, by far. The pictures are fair and close to the real property... only, the actual place is so much more amazing. The views of the water are breathtaking. Sometimes, you can't tell where the sky ends and the water begins. Other times, the sunset hues take your breath away.
The place is tucked away on top of a mountain. So, it does require some driving from PCH. But it also allows you to get away from the noise and crowds. There's a grill, a bbq pit and an indoor fireplace. The house itself is so well built that the noise from the kitchen or living area didn't really bother those in the bedrooms. It was also very well stocked, with lots of kitchenware, towels, blankets and the like. There's even a nice selection of dvds and cds.
The owner is really nice. And I received my deposit within days of my stay, and I never even had to ask about it.
My family and I were able to create some really great memories here and we were all very sad to leave. If I could, I would love to buy this place. Instead, I will definitely come back here for another stay!
