Great Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great!

It's waterfront and you could swim but it's a 10m walk or so to the actual sandy beach.

This place is a small apartment with a great location. It's perfect for a couple but I personally wouldn't bring my kids unless they were small kids.

Walking distance to stores, restaurants and a 20m walk to the pier.

I loved this little place! It was comfortable and clean and had anything we needed to chairs, boogie boards, towels and beach umbrellas!

I'd stay again and hope to do so and rent all 3 of Eric's places and bring some family!

READ signs for parking. Each side of the street has different rules!

We were warned to look for these signs. But failed to realize each side of the street has different rules for parking and we ended up getting a ticket.

This is our fault! Just be aware and read the signs for whatever side of the street you're parking on!

Thanks for a great place!

Hacienda Heights

I had a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased with the accommodations of my stay at the cottage, unit B. It was exactly as explained, there were no surprises and I will be returning very soon. The bed was very comfortable, the location at the south end of the strand was perfect as it did not have all the traffic however still close enough to the action if you chose to venture out. I would also like to share with the single woman whom travel alone, I felt very safe arriving late in the evening. Great outdoor lighting for your security.

Loved our Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were able to book this beauty last minute right before Labor Day weekend, and without some crazy time limit of how long we had to stay and for the price a day it's absolutely perfect. I loved having the doors open at night to listen to the waves because the ocean is feet away. You do walk a very very short way to the stairs to the beach and then your on one of the prettiest beaches around. Most everything is in walking distance. The condo was clean and modest. Loved how vintage it is. Has body boards to use and umbrellas that was great! Would go back here to stay again no doubt. Thank you for a wonderful vacation stay.

This was a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed how close this house was to the water. Watching the waves hit the rocky shore is my favorite. Its a quick walk to a sandy beach and there is plenty of places to eat around the home. It was a very quite place to stay and I love that is one block off from a high traffic area. I would definitely stay here again.

As described the property is vintage but the location is awesome. Ocean view and crashing waves!

  • 4 of 5

The property is very small and modest but it was clean and suited our needs. We enjoyed the laid back beach vibe and friendliness of those we met. Beautiful sunsets and the sound of the waves through the night. One thing to consider is you can hear the train so if you are a light sleeper this is something to be aware of. We would definitely return to this property. Many good memories made.

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting your review. Over the entire time that I have been either living at the property or renting the property - it has been extremely rare for anyone to mention that they heard sounds of the train - especially in this unit - as it is below street level. Glad to hear that you enjoyed staying in our Beach Level, Beachfront Vacation Rental.

Nice location, lacks a lot.

  • 2 of 5

Hey Guys,

The address was great but c'mon. I am glad I brought the soap from my hotel the night before. Three of the four lights in bathroom were out. The futon had no sheets, and no pillowcases for the pillows, at least none that I could find. I paid extra for a third person, but there wasn't even a chair for her to sit in (just the futon that the three of us shared.) If you spruced it up a bit(wouldn't take much), it would be a great spot. As it is Probably nobody's fault but after getting TV to work, most of the cable channels cut out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review - however, we are quite confused by it. We mention in all of our communication, e.g. 5 times in our emails and documentation and once in our telephone conversation - that if you need anything or if anything is not to your satisfaction - to contact our local people who take care of the property - as they only live 1.5 blocks away. Also this is in our contract - that you accepted!! That is - that if anything is not to your satisfaction you will immediately contact us - so that we can have it addressed/remedied. We advise all of our Vacationers that if you can't find anything to contact our local people via text or phone - as usually that item is in a different location than where you are looking. Re: Sheets and pillow cases - they were all there as well as hand and shower soap. Please contact us if there are any issues. We can't address any issues - if you don't communicate with our local support staff. Re: Paying extra for a 3rd person. That must be another property - as we don't charge extra for other people. We do speak with all of our Vacationers to make sure that it what we have - is a good fit for them. If you had let us know that you were bringing an extra person we would have guided you - if this was a good fit - or not. Sorry, that the experience was not what you expected. However, the support team and supplies are in place so that our Vacationers do not have this experiences like this. Finally to put this in perspective, over the past 10 years that we have been renting this property as a Vacation rental - this is the first communication - in any form - that there was not soap, sheets, pillowcases - or that any lights were burned out. Nobody else has reported a problem with the cable TV. If they do have a problem - they contact our local support staff - who get the issue fixed. Maybe our other 1000 Vacationers knew how to contact our support team via either their cell phone or the local landline that we provide so that we can do everything possible to ensure that our Vacationers have a good time at the beach!! By the way, your review was a complete contrast to the wonderful review that you sent me via email after you left - which I will now save. So, please clarify, was it "great" or "not so great".
