About Gale Kramer

I have been living in Huntington Beach for the past 12 years as a second home and it is a great vacation destination. I also have a home in Hawaii on the island of Kauai that is also a vacation rental on the beach

Gale Kramer purchased this house in 2005

Why Gale Kramer chose Orange County

Huntington Seaside Villa has a great location, just a few blocks to the ocean and Main Street. We are just far enough away that we do not get the late night bar noise in the streets which can be very disturbing. We are a 5 star accommodation, designer furnish and very beautiful with great neighbors. Quite and safe

Wonderful time with family in Beautiful Vacation Home in downtown Huntington Beach

  • 5 of 5

What a great time we had at Huntington Seaside Villa in Huntington Beach..this "Home" away from home was a perfect setting for our annual family vacation. Accommodations were top notch....beautifully furnished, not your typical hotel room decor..Beds were very comfortable, linens were better than we have at home, in fact we took the name off the tags and bought the same brand for our house. 2 family room on seperate levels so our kids and their friends had there own and adults had theirs as well. Kitchen was absolutey beautiful and very well stocked, pots, pans and dinnerware etc...all the comforts of home, not your typical timeshare cooking utensils ( we own 2)...my wife and i enjoyed the master bedroom equipped with an oversize bath tub and seperate shower, also oversized to accomodate us both at same time, fireplace for beautiful ambiance and very nicely furnished, again better than you would find at most top rated hotels, beach accessibilty and downtown shops and restaurants were a short 10 minute walk, very enjoyable, people and neighborhoods along the way were very friendly and accomodating. The house was beautiful and enjoyed Ms. Kramers' vast array of artwork and decor obviously from places we only dream of visiting...not too much but the right amount.. i liked the personal touches as it gave us an idea of who we were renting from and not some typical corporate hotel room where every room is the same. She furnishes beach accessories and even bicycles that we enjoyed using. Ms.Kramer called a few times to make sure we were comfortable and had all we needed to ensure we had a lovely time. Prooerty was immaculate and we certainly look forward to our next stay at Huntington Seaside Villa.

Note: Ms. Kramer also has another beautiful vacation rental in Kauai that we are seriously considering booking for our next vacation destination, seen on her website. I strongly and emphatically recommend this property based on comfortability, ease of use of this property as well as value received for what we paid. Thank you Gale for an incredible stay.

Great home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for 3 nights great location close to beach and plenty of food choices to pick from, we basically parked the vehicle and rode bikes everywhere. The home was very clean and well stocked we cooked and the kitchen was perfect for our meals. Great communication with the owner and smooth transaction. Would definitely go back and rent this home again.

I would like to start by saying I have used VRBO for the past 10 years. I believe there are a lot of hard working people who look forward to getting away. I have stayed in various homes in HB. Never had the owners contact me during our stays except for this time. I can say only a couple positive comments and that is we were allowed to check in early, and a return of our security deposit in a timely manner.

This is the first time I will leave a negative response. I have to agree with Tracie B for the fact we felt we were being watched. Also the agreement we signed was not worth the paper it was written on. I kept all the texts coming from the owner so this is factual. My daughters and I came to HB to run the Surf City Half Marathon and spend a weekend together without husbands and kids. Our first night out I was called by the owner shortly after we left asking if we took the mail in., we did as we thought it was a kind gesture as it was overflowing. We never were told they got their mail there, and why as they live around the corner? I was asked to put it back and they would come back by to get it. The next time I was contacted was shortly after we left for breakfast asking if we checked out? This was around 9:30am. I texted back that we were planning on checking out around 12:30. Mind you the "contract" showed check out time 5:00 pm. I get a text back only saying 10:00am That sent me into stress mode. My daughter luckily knew how to do a screen shot of the contract and I sent it back to the owner. She said the contract must have been a generic one and she didn't realize the times stated. She said we could stay till 12:30 because she had guests checking in. Guess they were more important than us. The window of time allowed for us to have my nephew and his kids come and visit. Coincidently right after he left we get a knock on the door. The housekeeper who was originally scheduled to come at 10:00 to which we were told was coming at 12:30 showed up right after my nephew left. This was at 11:40 and she didn't hesitate to come right in ,no apology given. This is why I believe we were being watched...just like Traci B thought. Every time someone left we were contacted! Garage also is off limits which is a first! My daughter heard the garage door open we were there.

This is also the first 3 story house with the third floor room locked and unavailable .

Needless to say we never felt totally comfortable, and it left us sad that we stayed here.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, I made a mistake on the reservation letter stating that check out time was 4pm. This was a complete error on my part. I felt very bad about this situation. My housekeeper arrived at the regular check out time which is 10am. I asked her to delay the out clean until they checked out. We did have other guests checking in the same day. This is the first time I ever made a mistake as far as check in time or check out time. I was very sorry about this. I do have mail delivered to the Villa and I have never had anyone ever remove it from the mail box until this guest. And nobody is spying. My housekeeper who does not drive went to the park and returned to the house and waited out front until she saw the guess departing and then entered. My third floor is a lock up storage area and is not available for guests nor is it advertised as part of the rental. At least Mary G enjoyed getting her security deposit quickly and having very early check in as we did not have guests check out that day. My home is advertised accurately on line. Absolutely NO complaints about her accommodations. Please read my other reviews. Thanks, Gale

Great place to stay for awule

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this wonderful home for 4 weeks in the fall of 2015 and had a great time. It was an easy walk to both the beach and a vibrant downtown. The owners were very responsive addressing any questions or issues that did arise. The home was very clean and well maintained. We liked it so well that we are going back in the spring of 2016 - can't wait!!!

This is an incredibly beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very lovely stay at this gorgeous home. It is a perfect location! Five blocks from the beach on a quiet street. The property was very clean and well maintained. It is thoughtfully stocked with every amenity you could possibly think of. The beds were comfortable, with nice sheets and pillows. The master bath was exquisite, large jetted tub and a two person shower. There were plenty of extra towels , including towels for the beach, beach chairs, beach mats and oh so thoughtful beach toys for your children as well as some very nice inside toys and puzzles. You need bring only yourselves to this beautiful rental, as it truly is, a home away from home. The owner was lovely and easy to deal with, and very prompt in returning our deposit. You could not ask for a nicer place to stay in one of my favorite California towns!

Great time and location. Lovely home.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time with my family of 5, and my inlaws and mother. It was a great place while we went to Disneyland and did some college tours. It was nice to have a big kitchen and be able to save some money by eating in. Everyone had their own room and upstairs there is a living room where our kids could watch tv. The master bedroom was huge and loved huge bathroom. It was about 4 blocks from the main beach, at night we could walk to downtown and to the pier. Love the front patio to hang out too. It was nice to that they had beach chairs and mats for the beach. Two nice little patios to sit at, also outside the master bedroom. The only thing was it was really humid and hot when we visited and there is no air and just a ceiling fan in the master. Other two rooms just had fans. I'm sure normally this wouldn't be important but it was hot until we opened the house up. But overall we had a nice time and wouldn't mind being able to come again and spend more time near the beach. Gale was great and easy to work with.
