Guestbook comments from the owner

Date of Stay July 8, 2013

Helpful votes:0/0.

The house was bright, clean and welcoming, a little nicer than the pictures. The AC helped tremendously since the temps. were in the 90's while we were there. Backyard was nice as well we just didn't have time to enjoy it more. Nice neighborhood and was great to have a short walk to the beach. The owner was pleasant, helpfull and available for any questions. We would recommend this property to friends or relatives interested in visiting this area. We may choose to visit again.

Lovely Home, Very Clean, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family was very comfortable here for Homecoming Weekend at the US Coast Guard Academy. The home is updated and very clean, with plenty of room for a family of 4-6. Kate was a very helpful host, and refunded our deposit quickly. We'll definitely choose this house again!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd summer in a row that we have rented The Golden House and we are beyond pleased every time. Kate makes sure everything is just as it should be and is great to work with. Everything you need is provided...linens, beach towels/toys, etc. The private beach access is a huge bonus, but you're also steps away from Ocean Beach Park if you feel the need for something more to do. The house is renovated very nicely and the outside shower is a nice bonus for after the beach. Also a beautiful patio and screened front porch for additional relaxation. Our two young boys enjoy everything about this area, but it is very suitable for families with older children as well. There is something for everyone! We will definitely rent again!

Happy Vacationers

  • 5 of 5

This impeccable house is just as described. It is decorated tastefully with interesting nautical items but not overdone. The driveway holds 4 cars, a real bonus. Thick bath towels, beach towels and beach chairs in good condition. Kate is a joy to work with. We'll be back.

cars....a real bonus. Nice new bathrooms, thick bath towels, beach

towels, and beach chairs in good

condition, large dining table and pleasant outside patio, large table, and relaxing screened front

porch especially at night. Oh so convenient to the relaxing private

beach and the large city beach with

lots of evening events such as music

and family movies on the beach.

Golden House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during our family vacation. The home is very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a nice patio with grill. The screened-in porch is a great place to enjoy the early morning sunrise. The home is located in a comfortable neighborhood within a short walking distance to the beach. Kate is very responsive and accommodated our change in plans. I highly recommend this property.
