I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this Beach House! The property and all the amenities are stunning & the neighborhood is wonderful. John was so easy to work with and so helpful.

As an extra benefit the home was well stocked with beverages and a welcome fruit plate :)

Kitchen has everything you could possibly need to prepare any meal which was perfect for our needs.

There are 3 master bedrooms!! Made the stay for my group very comfortable, relaxing and fun! I will absolutely want to book this property again, cant wait to come back! Thank you John!

Delightful spacious waterway expereience

  • 5 of 5

Nicely furnished very large home with all the modern necessities and right on the water. You can kayak, paddle board or boat with ease and convenience. Close to all shops and restaurants and yet quiet and relaxing. Richard is a gracious host, the refrigerator was stocked with milk, juice, water and soda when we arrived. The kids watched Netflix series on the big screen tv and caught up on their favorite shows. There is a wonderful shore breeze that keeps the house cool literally 24 hours a day. It might actually get cold in the winter but summer is perfect. We will stay here again if it's available and we're back in the Huntington Beach area. PS. We did Universal Studio, Disney , Newport and the US Open of pro surf was just getting started as well. A great location and place with many options. Thank you Richard

This house was perfect for our party of 9. We had plenty of space, made great use of the kitchen, and thoroughly enjoyed our evenings on the patio. Registration and check in/out were easy. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful time at Richards house. The House is big, comfortable, and the View of the canal and River is great!

We were two families of 5 persons each, and there was enough rooms and place for everyone.

The kids enjoyed the table of pool, and played a lot of matches there. They were excited to come back home every day, when we go around.

Also Was a nice surprise to find something to drink and to eat when we arrived to the House. This is nice, but during your stay you will find many nice surprises. He really think on the guests and how they can be completely satisfied.

It was really an unforgettable experience!!!

We strongly recommend it.

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Don't trust the pictures, house is even bigger!

We've had a great time, Richard is a great host. To be honest, we never met the guy, which makes it even better, he is very discreet and does not bother you at anytime, although he is always there if you need him.

Location is great, outside LA, far from the traffic, but close enough to enjoy the city.

House comes FULLY EQUIPPED, anything you want, you name it.

Just 2 things to improve: Wifi reception in the upper floor is not the best and also no cable TV, just a smart TV with internet access. Not that bad, but can be improved.

Perfect vacation home in great location

  • 5 of 5

The home is designed well and fully equipped with everything a vacationer needs. For our annual ladies reunion, the location was perfect. Easy walks to restaurants, bars and, of course, Starbucks! The outdoor area on the water is divine and the water toys are fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely vacation home and highly recommend it. Enjoy Huntington Harbour and all it has to offer in the comfort of this beautiful home.
