Great Stay in Huntington Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great stay at this wonderful home. Great amenities (more than we actually had time to use!) and GREAT location. We were within walking distance of everything, but not so close as to get the noise from Main street. We highly recommend anybody coming to Huntington to stay here. The owners were wonderful. We never needed any support, but they were very responsive and tried to anticipate the things we needed or questions we might have. Check in / Check out was very easy and the home was wonderful.

Location Could Not Be Better

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this beach house with our three grown kids and we love it so much that we are already talking about returning next year! Main Street, the pier, shopping, restaurants and Pacific City all are a short walk away and the kids and their friends never run out of things to do. Running to the food market or visiting one of the many southern California amusement parks is really the only time you need to drive a car.

The home is spacious, the kitchen well equipped (for those times you really want to stay in for a meal) and the outdoor decks are ideal for hanging out- day or evening. Donna has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Counting down the weeks until vacation next summer!

Great property in Huntington beach

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with the kids for spring break and the property was just perfect for our group. The older girls took the 3rd floor bedroom the little ones took the bedroom on the 2nd floor, I had the master bedroom on the 2nd floor. All rooms have attached full bathrooms. Didn't get to use the outdoor fire pit or the outdoor Grill area but they looked great! House was decorated well and I really loved the carpet and flooring! Kitchen was very large and easy to make meals. Huntington beach has ton of shops and food within walking distance so the older kids had a blast. There are a number of stairs in the house as an FYI if you have very little ones it may be tough to keep an eye on them. Sanchos tacos is very yummy and Sugar Shack is an A++ breakfast option. Disney is about 30 minutes away. You do have to drive to get to the Grocery store. It was tricky to get the ideal water temp out of the shower but I finally got use to it.

Halloween get-a-way for three generations!

  • 5 of 5

This is a must do rental! My husband and I rent across the country and it has to be rated at the top. We didn’t need to bring anything along. Everything you can think of or need has already been thought of. Kitchen ware is all there, hair dryers, hangers and extra towels, blankets and of course beach supplies are abundant. The owners have provided everything you can think of, for a beach retreat. Although, if you bring younger children, plastic wear might be considered. We spent 5 days over the Halloween weekend and what a treat!! Huntington Beach really goes all out. Houses are decorated on every street, downtown turns into Halloween town and families are everywhere. A very old fashioned, hometown atmosphere. Our family get-a-way included 3 generations, ten total peeps, including little ones and this house is perfect. Two TV locations, plus well spread out and separated bedrooms with sitting and TV areas, made nap and quiet time as well as individual family time very awesome. Plenty of space on one of the many balconies to find adult quiet time and of course you are 5 minutes walking from the beach or downtown.

The owners are very attentive and great to converse and work with. Response time was quick and the whole rental process very easy. Deposit return time was more than appropriate. We loved it, would certainly recommend it and hope to return next year!!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and helping to create lifelong memories.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for four nights. There were eight of us, and we had plenty of room. The house is a couple of blocks from the beach and the shopping district of Huntington Beach. The house is stocked with lots of beach stuff which made our beach time so much fun! We walked to restaurants and a couple of us enjoyed morning runs on the beach. The location of this house is perfect!

The owners of the house are well practiced in hospitality. The house itself is beautiful. The kitchen is a good size and there are multiple outdoor decks and balconies. The owners have done little things to make the house more comfortable - like labeling the light switches, providing plenty of bath and beach towels, putting luggage racks in every room, and placing instructions for the TV and wifi in multiple places. It was very easy to reach the owner when we had questions and they were very helpful.

Our group has rented multiple vacation properties across the country and this is the best one we have ever stayed!
