Nice stay in HB, CA

  • 4 of 5

This rental is ideal for 1 or 2 people. It is well maintained and very clean. I had a slight plumbing problem due to roots in the line which was resolved the same day that I contacted the owner. He is very accommodating and helpful. It is small, but detached from the main home with a fountain by the door for ambiance. There is a sitting area with a flat screen TV and a small table for dining with a full kitchenette with a full-sized refrigerator. The bathroom is small with a compact shower, but suited my purposes fine. Great location near HB and shops as well as easy access in and out of the area. There are laundry facilities available with an ironing board and iron on site. Parking was inside a garage. They provided 2 different choices for AC, but this near the beach would probably not be needed. For a few nights, there were other guests in the larger unit who chose to smoke outside. Since I am highly allergic to smoke, I just shut the window and turned on the AC until they went inside and air outside was clean for an open window. When visiting this area again, I would definitely consider staying here.

Outstanding accommodations - I stayed 5 weeks, and I'm giving it 5 stars.

  • 5 of 5

The property is a clean, beautiful standalone dwelling that's larger than your average hotel room - very much like a studio apartment - with key-coded entry both from the street and to the unit itself. As such, it doesn't share any walls with other units, and this gives it a very nice sense of privacy. The guest is also granted garage parking which is VERY handy. The location is excellent with a Starbucks (open at 5 a.m.), wine bar (Sea Legs), full-service restaurant with GREAT breakfasts (Mama's), a Mediterranean restaurant (REALLY good), Chinese food, and a grocery store all in walking distance (less than 5 minutes). The beach is only another 5 minute's walk. Main Street in HB is very close.

The owner, Ken, was a sincere pleasure to meet, and went WAY out of his way to make sure I was comfortable at every step of the process.

I would HIGHLY recommend this rental to anybody looking for an easy, comfortable, and well-situated "home away from home." I will be returning without a doubt.

Thanks, Ken! It was a pleasure.

Everything You Need, Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this private studio in Huntington Beach twice and I'm sure I will stay again. The location is very close to the Huntington Beach pier, and the accommodations are clean, quiet and safe. There are shopping and restaurant amenities right across the street and Ken and his family have provided everything you could need for a short or extended stay. The price is unbeatable too!

Clean but not as described. Larger unit.

  • 3 of 5

My boyfriend and I chose this property because of location (5 min drive to the beach), because it said it was clean (which it was) and because it says it's a one bedroom that can sleep a third in the living room. I'd like to say first, Ken was kind and accommodating but I just think others should know this is not a one bedroom. We rented the larger tiki unit because a friend wanted to rent with us and the description said it was a one bedroom with room for a third in the living room. The unit is a small studio with a wet bar. There is a curtain that just covers the bed area but not the entire sleeping area by any means, so there was no privacy. Also, the sleeping space for the third person (a grown man) is a twin cot with many stains on it. I wouldn't have slept on it, even though they kindly provided us with clean sheets. Our third person ended up leaving a day early but we still paid for him per night, which I can't see the justification for.

Should also be known there is no cable (even though there is a cable box) and no a/c which honestly wouldn't usually be an issue, but it was very hot and Ken was nice and provided us with extra fans. Just thought I'd point this out. Proximity to the other rental is like a foot so you don't have much privacy if shades are open.

All in all, if you just need a place to sleep for one or two people, it's ok, but saying a third person (besides a child) will be comfortable feels like you're not getting what you expect. And I want to reiterate that this family is very thoughtful and willing to accommodate but I just didn't want others to get into the same situation as we did, unknowingly.

Owner's Response: We list our unit as a studio bedroom 459 sf and tiki little larger unit 550 sf. The curtain has been extended it was destined for other family member. The cot has been cleaned ( a prior guest had a child spill medicine) I missed cleaning it and apologized for this. There was a full refund for the 3rd quest! . Cable is an extra (with maximum entertainment value) and needs to be connected in the room. I was denied access as they had a pet in the unit without authorization. The guest unit was located close to but not adjoining other guest unit ( unlike a hotel or motel ). We will do whatever we can within reason to accommodate our guests. We want this to be a. Pleasurable experience !

Ken was very easy to reach and very helpful. We got stuck in Vegas and could not make our trip to Huntington Beach. Ken was extremly thoughtful and allowed us to come back to enjoy our trip at another date. Thank you Ken.
