We wanted somewhere that wasn't crowded with tourists and Mandalay Bay is still a 'secret'
We feel like we've stepped into another world when we come down here. The views are so relaxing.
Over the years, I’ve rented a number of homes thru Homeaway and I can honestly say that this was the best ever.
The house is right on the harbor and has an open floor plan that makes it quite nice for a large group to be together whether you are at the game table, in the kitchen, in the dining room, or living room. The home has four very comfortable bedrooms with a sauna and private deck for the master bedroom. Then there’s is a fully-stocked kitchen and a number of televisions throughout the house with cable TV, internet access and Wifi. There’s also a large wrap around deck around two sides of the house with plenty of deck seating and two barbecues that made it fun for dining.
We enjoyed using the number of bikes, including a surrey bike, as well as a four-person paddle boat and the kayaks! Next time, we plan to include the optional electric duffy boat.
Mandalay Bay Beach is a nice 10-minute walk away (though you do have to cross Harbor Boulevard), as well as the Sunday morning Channel Islands Harbor Farmer’s Market which has a nice variety of local produce.
I myself am a golfer and enjoy playing the two challenging courses at the River Ridge Golf Course just up the street, but there was so much here to do that I never even unpacked my golf clubs!
Thank you, Jackie, for the use of your beautiful home.
A very pleasant place that accommodated three couples with ease. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking in with above average dishes and flatware. We did not use any garage toys but did notice several bikes with flat or nearly flat tires. We did not use water toys except for the electric boat which was very nice to have. Two of us were very experienced boaters. Our mission was the Reagan Library and Ranch and some golf so this place was perfectly situated, and priced, for us. The location offers a nice view down a canal rather than across a canal. We must have a good view. Jackie says she plans some up-grades which will further add to the value for the money for her house. Do be aware, the living area is multi level and not the best for mobility impaired folks. Otherwise, fine.
We were 4 Reverend's and 1 Bishop attending a spiritual conference for the Madonna Ministry International which was held at the Embassy Suites (walking distance from this lovely Channel Island Harbor home). The owner is really wonderful to work with. She has beautifully decorated with a light house and sea shore theme accented with the real world water on two sides and lovely boats docked where only some can dream of. Everything we could think of needing was graciously provided. We used the two person kayak, 5 of us had a surrey ride to the beach and one night we invited friends over for a BBQ. We are hoping that our conference is in the same location next year so we can come back for an even longer stay as one week was not long enough. We highly recommend staying at this little piece of Heaven on Earth.
We have 10 people in total (2 children, 3 teenagers, 5 adults) and the house was perfect for all of us! There was space for all of us, and space for the little ones to play. The bounce house was awesome for the kids, as well as the collection of DVDs.
We had a very easy walk to the beach, and used the wonderful kayaks provided, which allowed for different types of adventures for people of all ages.
I would highly recommend staying here. Jackie was wonderful to work with, and the house was incredible.
This is our second time there this summer. We all had lots of fun. My six year old son knows how to kayake now. We will go back again.
