We loved our stay in Corona Del Mar. Our experience with the owner, Sebastian, was top notch. All of the instructions provided were clear and detailed, and his responsiveness was near immediate. The condo was well-equipped and well-stocked with towels, kitchen items etc and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the patios, in front of the house we had the morning sun and at the back patio we had the sun in the afternoon and the sunset. Thank you so much for such a great stay! We really enjoyed our trip!
I can not say enough good things about my recent stay. The condo is beautiful with many personal touches that make you feel welcomed and comfortable. From the kitchen that had everything you would need to the lovely bedrooms and baths that were furnished with very exceptional linens and towels. Staying here made the vacation extra special. The area is so convenient to restaurants and the beach.
