Incredible View

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway for a couple. The cottage is cozy and has everything you need for a vacation. It is steps to the water and walking distance to the beaches. The pier has an old-fashioned diner at the end that I highly recommend. We also rented a jet ski on the harbor; it is very close to the cottage, and shopping and dining are available as well! Nice to have access to laundry room, hair dryer, wake boards and beach towels. We were told that once you arrive, you won't want to leave; my experience was as promised, we did not want to ever leave! If you want to explore southern California, this cottage is in the perfect location to do so. Loved it! Thanks!

Great 4-day get away!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for four nights. We had a perfect location, the view was wonderful. Eric was really great with all the information he provided to me. Patrick was also great, he came and got the internet back up in running so my husband could finish his work. We had a blast while we were here. We definitely will be back next summer.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. My husband and two teen daughters flew from Idaho to spend 4 glorious days at this little slice of heaven. We didn't want to leave!

Thank you for giving us a perfect location to create memories.

Amazing Honeymoon!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I absolutely loved this beach rental! It was very cozy and the views were even better than the pictures! We enjoyed being so close to the water. The only down sides were, there wasn't much shopping within walking distance, and because the rental is in such a great spot there is occasional busy foot traffic. But! We would stay here 100 more times if we were able to! Wonderful experience and hope to do it again sometime!

1st family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most memorable vacation. This place was perfect for our family of 4. We brought our bikes which we rode everywhere and it was perfect location to just take off and ride along the coast or ride to get something to eat. We did a little of everything from fishing to bike riding to sunbathing and enjoying the beach life. It was really hard leaving here. I'm going to miss the crashing of the waves every night! Thanks Eric we will definitely return.

Everything was as Eric promised beginning with his easy open communication prior to our arrival to our warm welcome from Francesca when we arrived. And Patrick was very attentive when we couldn't the wi-fi code. The cottage was fully furnished and included every kitchen need you can imagine. The ocean was fantastic, the pier just a short walk down the beach, the Thursday farmers markets a must-see and shopping on Pacific Coast Highway very nearby. Would love to stay there again in the future.
