PERFECTION!!! My family and I cannot say enough about this absolutely beautiful home (the house was way beyond our expectations). It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The owner was so accommodating and quickly responded to any questions or anything we needed. A fabulous front patio to sit out on and enjoy the sunshine on a nice quiet street (so safe for kids). So close to the beach and downtown for shopping and dining! We loved being able to take a short stroll to the beach or downtown on a moments notice to get a coffee and watch the sunset from the pier or later on in the evening walking downtown for dinner, dessert or drinks in one of the huge variety of restaurants and bars (don't miss the pazookies at bj's). Its a short walk to the beach and there was even a wagon provided to carry all the chairs and towels (or kids). In the late afternoon we would take long bike rides on the beach with one of the bikes provided...so much fun!!! There is also a really nice park right down the street for the kids to play. So many amenities that made it easy to feel at home. We traveled by plane and the only time we used our rental car was the 1 day we made the short trip to Disney Land (about 20 -25 minutes away) and the other day we went to Sea World in San Diego (about 1.5 hrs away) other than that we walked and biked the entire time. The gorgeous kitchen had everything we needed including a large BBQ on the center patio that we used a lot! There is so much space for everyone to be comfortable...the kids even had their own living room! The house was spotless and absolutely beautifully decorated (love this house, hated going home). We even signed up for surf lessons with a prior US National Surf Champion Kim Hamrock who lives right down the street. We have been coming to HB for for many years and this is by far the nicest and best house we have ever stayed in. We will be back next year for sure! We are especially excited because next year the new Pacific City entertainment center will be open and just a 5 minute walk from the house, a whole bunch more new restaurants, shopping and bars to explore, yeah :).
Thank you for everything Roger, as you can see we loved your home and our stay :)
