We have traveled a lot out of the country for various beach vacations and one thing we kept asking ourselves after staying a week at this property in both units was, why? This place has it all, and we mean ALL! I'm just going to start a list, but this in no way is complete: waking up to the ocean view from the beach house, the gorgeous sunsets, the surf perfect for boogie boarding and surfing, the velvety sand, the beach volleyball, the bike path, the dolphins, the sea lions, the heat lamp next to the cozy outdoor furniture, the immaculately clean and beautifully decorated beach house that has you wanting for nothing because everything from a blender to a crock pot to a skim board are among what you'd have at home and more. The town of Playa del Rey is absolutely charming and we spent as much time on the bikes cruising the shoreline or the marina, going to Senor G's for deliciously freshly made juices or Tanner's coffee where we drank Snow Monkey Plum tea...such unique drinks. And we loved the authentic Italian food at Cantalini's. Of course, a review wouldn't be complete without mention of the beds, which were so very comfortable! We stayed at the beach house for a family reunion as well as a retirement celebration for grandpa and it is unanimous by all from the littlest guy to grandpa that this will be one of our fondest memories. This is a fabulous property and Sherry and Stephen take pride in every detail, plus they are wonderful to know. It was so hard to leave, but we'll absolutely be back!!
