About The Owner

This beach house has been in our family for over 30 years. It was originally purchased by our grandmother and our father. We had many family gatherings over the years and made many beautiful memories. Our father spent most his time here making improvements such as new windows, tiling one of the bathrooms and rebuilding the fireplace, complete with a mantel made from one of the old, wooden bleachers from the stadium at Stanford. He was the quarterback back in the early 70's and later became the team doctor as well as an orthopedic surgeon. Our father passed away unexpectedly in 2002, six months later our grandmother passed. The house was then passed down to our aunts and uncles along with us. Eventually becoming ours alone. We both have busy lives, so we decided to open it up to vacationers to allow us to keep the home and continue to go there with our families. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 1982

Beautiful coastal view

  • 5 of 5

This place was way better then I expected and a great price for the location! The views of the ocean and the surrounding coastal areas were beautiful! Way better then the photos show on vrbo. The area is very quiet and pet friendly from the beach to the park across the street. Which was great for us! La selva beach was a huge beach and its a short walking distance away. The house was very clean and the beds were comfortable. They had all the appliances and kitchen utensils that you need. I read that someone posted that the upstairs room gets warm and it does when you have the heater going. I recommend just open the patio door while your sleeping, you can get that coastal breeze and listen to the waves crashing on the beach. The owner Tiffany and the rental management were great to us and helped us with anything we needed! We can't wait to come back maybe this summer!

Great view

  • 4 of 5

3 generation family and dog enjoyed the ocean view cottage. The beds were comfortable and there was a pull out sofa and blowup mattress as well as sleeping pads. Lots of dishes, glasses and utensils. Private beach access is handy and portapotties are available.

Best location by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beach house. The location is unbeatable. We watched the first light and sunset everyday. The walk to the beach is not very strenuous but could be a bit taxing for older folks. The house is in great condition with pretty much everything we need. There are almost no stores/shops/restaurants within walking distance, but there are plenty of options within a short 15 mins drive.

Both owner and managing company responds in a timely matter with any questions that we had. Definitely recommend to anyone seeking a ocean view property for a relaxing stay.
