Great home on the Strand

  • 5 of 5

Very frequent Hermosa VRBO'r, but first time on the Strand. Wife and I brought our five kids (ages 8-16) and wanted them to be able to hop right onto the beach. The house was great and exactly as described.

The location is perfect and was the primary reason we selected this home. It is on the Strand, roughly between the two piers (little closer to MB). The view is spectacular - we watched the sun set from the porch every night. The incredible view and proximity to both piers are why we will be back.

The rooms were large and the beds were comfortable. Very good water pressure. Bikes were great and there were more beach toys than we could ever use. The house was very clean and had plenty of towels. Kitchen was in very good shape and everything worked well. We were a little concerned before arriving that the two bathrooms wouldn't be enough for the seven of us (particularly since the master bedroom does not have its own bathroom), but it was a non-issue.

Serena was great to work with and was very responsive.

Fantastic Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and two babies came here with hopeful expectations that were not only fully met, but exceeded. The only things we needed to bring (aside from our clothes & food) were the two baby pack & plays. Had the babies been older they each would have had a bed. The home is that - a well appointed home with literally every convenience and then some. From the beach at our door stop to the hot tub in the grotto, this home was perfect for us. Our car was a Surburban so didn't fit in the private garage, but we were given a parking pass as well, and that did the trick. The beds are very comfortable and the bedroom on the first floor with the nearby full bathroom was terrific for my sister-in-law who doesn't like stairs too much. Speaking of which, if you have a child using a stroller, there is a ram up to the actual street one house away, so no need be worried about strollers and stairs. I loved sitting on the beachside of the house in a comfy Adirondack chair, glass of wine in hand watching the sunset. It was great; I hope to go back again some day.

California Dreaming

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed home. We were family of 4, with 2 grown sons. We loved using the bikes in the garage and our mini-van fit just fine. Umbrella in garage and extra plastic table and chairs in closet, out the farm-style kitchen door-made dining on the patio beach-side great. No closet in the master (but there are built in cabinets for folded clothes, nor curtains, so used the portable screen in the room to cordon off a little dressing area and hang my clothes thereon, as was a bit too shy to dress in open view of the windows surrounding. Fabulous view from these windows, complete with binoculars to look for dolphins. Did not use outside jacuzzi. Great having washer/dryer-as the males all came down with flu, but were very comfortable in our separate rooms and I kept things ship shape! We loved having coffee in the morning on the strand side patio, to watch the area come to life. Nice built in grille too! The owner was very responsive to our needs and even sent a little box of chocolate covered strawberries as a surprise. Enjoyed walking down to the pier, where there are lots of restaurants and shops. We also bought light up frisbees and the boys had a blast at night on the beach with these. The extra guest pass allowed our relatives to pick up grandma and drive over daily and park with easier access for her. Proximity to many stores and entertainment venues, but a quiet spot to relax and watch the life go by. Great being able to use the local land line, as cell phone coverage was spotty. We will rent here again!

Great Rental!

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of four with two kids under 4. This was a wonderful rental for our family. The location was perfection. The house had plenty of room for our family and was relatively quiet. The house was fairly clean. The beach had a swing set on the beach just to the left of the house. The kids enjoyed that. The kitchen had upgraded appliance and granite counter tops. We were pleasantly surprised, as the kitchen pictures did not show much detail. The house did not have a formal table to sit and eat for four but the counter was suitable for meals. (We brought a booster with a belt to secure our 2 year old). Our guests were able to use the two-person table, which could be converted to a dining table with the addition of two more chairs (not provided). The kitchen was moderately equipped but had enough to handle most meals. The stairs leading up to the second floor were not kid friendly. They are steep and curve up. We brought a very sturdy baby gate with us (it did not fit at the base of the stairs due to the molding on the stairs but did at the top of the second floor) but purchased another cheep one to keep the kids clear of the stairs. Once secure this was not an issue at all. Someone with mobility issues may find it challenging to navigate the stairs on a daily basis. The bedrooms upstairs were bigger than expected and fit our family well. They would easily accommodate a much bigger family. The smaller of the two had a nice size trundle bed and the bigger bedroom had two larger size twin beds with plenty of floor space to spare. Linens were clean and comfortable. These two bedrooms had an adjoining bathroom. The master bedroom was beautiful and comfortable. The master has no shades on any of the windows and had no door for privacy. We thought this may be an issue but it was easily forgotten after we woke to the amazing view! The best part of our day was waking to ocean! One morning we even saw a school of dolphins swim by. The Garage accommodated one large car. We have a sizable SUV and parked with no issues. Although we did not use any of the bikes in the garage they could easily accommodate a large family with kids. We got the chance to fly the kite in the garage one day that was fun! You certainly pay for location with this house and feel the weekly price is worth what you get. Especially given the extra main floor bedroom. We would certainly consider renting this house again!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a few days in Nov 2008. The

house is very clean, tastefully decorated, and has a

great view of the ocean. This is not your typical

"rental" property. The person that handled the

rental was very cooperative, and couldn't have been

easier to work with. It was great to not have a TV,

but I see that they have added one, so you have

choice. Would definitely rent this house again.
