Visited during the MLK weekend with a group of 10 to celebrate a birthday. Though a bit unassuming from the front, don't be fooled - this place is HUGE.
The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, plates, etc and even included some extra goodies that came in handy. (Heart-shaped pancakes griddle, anyone?)
We brought our puppy along for the vacation and he was as sad as anyone to leave the sprawling backyard. Beyond the massive volleyball court, there's a little pathway which leads to a "tribal council"-esque fire pit - perfect for all your wildest s'mores fantasies. Also, there's a detached gameroom which is literally the size of a studio apartment in itself.
The neighborhood is very quiet - which wasn't a problem so much as a startling observation from our LA-based group. Every conversation - even barely above a normal tone - easily carried from backyard. So despite the infinite possibilities, definitely not a location for any primal screaming or unfulfilled Spring Break adventures.
That being said, it's in a great location - right off the 101 and 10-15 mins to the Arroyo Burro and Downtown.
One caveat - though the house technically sleeps 10, would say that the two singles and futon might be a little on the small side for full grown adults. We actually had two of the party opt to sleep in the couches in the game room, which were a little bit more comfortable.
All in all, a fantastic home rental and I would stay here a million times over. After the initial reservation was made, Nikole was extremely helpful in answering questions and provided all the information we needed for our stay.
