Perfect Beach House Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is amazing! The location to the beach is perfect-you can hear the waves but not the noise from people on the beach. The house is in great condition and beautifully upgraded and has everything we needed. The location is fantastic, it is right off Pacic Coast Hwy and has food and shops all close by. Loved this beach house!

Location was perfect!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was as expected. The noise from upstairs guest was a bit loud at times and during the night. But it was vacation and it's not like we had work to go to. :-)

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

I live on the east coast but travel frequently to the LA area for business and whenever possible I like to take an extra few days for some R/R at the beach. Normally I stay at either the Dana Point Ritz Carlton or the Montage. This was my first experience with VRBO and this property.

I found the owner to be more than helpful and eager to ensure my stay was enjoyable, having received several emails prior to my stay to make sure everything was set.

The property is exactly as described, sitting directly on the beach with sliding glass doors that open fully onto the beach deck creating a seamless space between the outdoors and living area. The house itself is nestled between and among similar beach homes so it's a quite, relaxing and an adult environment. What I found most enjoyable was just sitting on the deck at sunset with a glass of champagne.

Location wise you're about 6 miles south of Long Beach and 8 north of Huntington Beach, so if you're interested in restaurants you'll find plenty to choose from and within a short drive.

If you're looking for a relaxing stay on the beach devoid of the noise and crowds then I'd highly recommend this property as I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Great beach vacation spot to do nothing or everyth

  • 5 of 5

The home is right on the beach. You can hear the waves from any room. Has anything you might need during your stay. The home is easy to keep tidy over a 7 day stay. Conducive to doing nothing but read and doze or close to everything to be busy all day. This is my go to family respite when I need to recharge my engine. Management is very amenable to suggestions.

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

The location of the condo cannot be beat. It was extremely nice to be able to walk right outside and be on the beach. The deck was very nice and they have a lot of sand toys for the kids. For the majority of our stay the sand berm was there so we couldn't see the shoreline but even when it was removed during our last day the angle was such that you still could not see it. Having an outside shower was fantastic.

The condo itself was adequate. It was clean but definitely shows wear in some places. It could use more plates and bowls and the rooms were small but it has what you need. I think it is time to replace the mattresses but that is probably a matter of opinion.

No one was staying above us so I can't comment on whether you can hear the upstairs neighbors as indicated on some of the other reviews.

It was an easy drive to Disneyland from the location.

The biggest problem I had with renting the property was that the security deposit is a good amount and the contract states that the owner has 30 days to return the deposit. Even though the property was rented several times after our stay, they held our deposit for the full 30 days. In my opinion, once it has been determined that there was not any damage due to your stay, your deposit should be returned.

Owner's Response: The unit is a home not a condo although that description may be matter of preference. Plate ware (bowls&plates) have been added to accommodate 12 settings. Mattresses were replaced September 2014. Security deposit are held for 30 days to ensure no charges have occurred on utility bills such as ordering movies or international/long distance phone calls. Since bills only arrive once a month (30 Days) deposits are held until utility invoices are verified.

Great Beach Vacation in February

  • 4 of 5

Rental property is clean and well maintained. The lower deck is a great place to spend time with friends and family and the outdoor shower was helpful for hosing down sandy kids. We had an enjoyable week at the beach and Disneyland from this property. The owner was prompt in responding to inquiries and met all aspects of his agreement including refunding my full security deposit within the specified time frame.

A few things to note for future travelers:

1) there are not enough plates/bowels for 8 people to eat 2 meals so you must either hand wash or run the dishwasher after each meal. The kitchen has all other basic tools and plenty of large serving bowls.

2) Construction is still going on at the house next door and can get a little loud.

3) No beach towels.

4) No lights besides the beds, only overhead lights. So, if you are a nighttime reader, bring a headlamp or flashlight.

5) During the winter there is a big sand berm between you and the ocean, so you cannot see the ocean from the deck.

Even with the above limitations, I would visit this property again if I wanted to be close to the beach and Disneyland.
