Wonderful place in Huntington Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for nine nights in July 2015 with our two girls, and enjoyed our stay very much. The condo is inside a gated community and is very spacious and comfortable. The owner, Darlene, is extremely friendly and outgoing. She met us at the property to make sure that we knew where everything was, and she provides a binder full of information on local restaurants and activities. There are lots of amenities inside and out, including three swimming pools close by. We went to several local restaurants in the area, as well as shopping, and of course the beach! We also recommend visiting nearby Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve to watch birds and sea life up close. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in Huntington Beach and hope to return again some day!

First Class Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is immaculate and beautifully decorated in a lovely gated community just a mile from the beach. The property owner (Darlene) really is a wonderful lady who went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. She really did make our stay a special one. We will be returning to HB soon (hopefully) and I would not want to stay anywhere else. Our family without question would recommend this property to other Homeway renters - you will not be disappointed. First class accomodation in a first class location with first class customer service.

Beautiful condo in HB! Great for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our family vacation for 5 nights from June 30 to July 5 and we really enjoyed it! This condo is beautifully furnished and is very clean and spacious. Kitchen and bathrooms were very well stocked with everything we could possibly need. Our kids really enjoyed the swimming pools as well. The back patio is very cozy and nice for sitting outside and enjoying the peace and quiet. The beach is within walking distance -- nice 20-25 minute walk (our kids rode scooters there and back), while my husband and I walked. The neighborhood is very nice and close to shopping, restaurants, Starbucks, etc. Disneyland is only a 20 minutes drive.

Darlene is a great host and our deposit was returned promptly. We will definitely rent this property again when we vacation in Huntington Beach:) Thank you, Darlene!!!
