Why Kim Carsley-Yost chose Orange County

Huntington Beach has it all, a very large beach with path along beach for biking rollerblading & jogging, famous pier, downtown with great restaurants & shopping, live bands, great beach events including the US Open of Surfing and the list goes on.

What makes this house unique

We spent years looking for just the right house in Huntington Beach and after a lot of searching we finally found our dream beach home. We love the house and location on a small side street just a short walk to the beach, pier, restaurants & shopping. One of our favorite things is taking long walks on the beach at sunset or on a spur of the moment taking the short walk to main street for a coffee or to eat at a huge variety of restaurants. Once you're there, no need for a car, just park it in the driveway or garage until you're ready to leave.

Spectacular Home - Spectacular Week!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we first opened the door we knew we were going to have a great vacation!  The house is immaculate, with gorgeous detail throughout.  The Kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and living areas are perfect.  Our family loved it, our teenage girls and four year old didn’t want to leave.  It is not easy to impress teenage girls and yet we had to drag them out of the house each day because they loved the home so much.  The girls had their own space the stretch out and relax after days at Disneyland, California Adventure, whale watching and the beach.

Each room is thoughtfully and tastefully decorated, warm and inviting with a great beach vibe.  The kitchen is incredibly beautiful; we made some great meals and memories in the kitchen and front porch area.  Several “big” flat screen televisions throughout the home allowed for a wonderful movie night and choices as to where to sit together to watch it.  The Master Suite is remarkable, with a fireplace, large jetted tub and steam shower, the Master Suite is the size of a hotel room all by itself!  The upstairs loft is stunning and spacious with a gorgeous balcony view of the ocean.  Three “living rooms” provided plenty of space to talk and play with our children and connect as a family.    

The home owner provided all the “extras” needed to ensure our vacation was magical.  The home came stocked with beach cruiser bicycles (we used several times and had a blast riding them), beach chairs, and a wagon for our four year old to ride in on our walks around Huntington Beach and boogie boards for some wave riding.

The neighborhood is beautiful and within walking distance to Main Street, restaurants, shopping, the beach and pier.  The neighbors are warm and friendly and we truly enjoyed visiting with them in the mornings, we will miss them and look forward to seeing them again.  

The pictures posted are amazing but they didn't even do it justice. That's how amazing this place is. WOW!

The communication with the owner was great. They provided quick responses and answered all of our questions promptly.

We have never rented a home before on vacation, and I can honestly tell you we will never vacation in a hotel again!  We have already started talking about our next vacation to Huntington Beach, and planning it around the availability of the home on Chicago Avenue.  We had such a wonderful time together as a family, and we all loved the home so much that we hated to leave.

Perfect for our family gathering! Clean, great location, everything we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

The HB house met the needs of our family group superbly! There were 7 adults and one toddler in our group and the bedroom configuration was perfect, even down to providing a pack & play for our grandson! The house is located very nicely in a quiet neighborhood, a short walk of a few blocks to a major retail center with coffe shops and restaurants. The lovely beach lies just beyond. Kim has equipped the home very nicely and even provides 4 bikes for guests to ride! We had 2 cars in our group and parked one in the garage and the other in the driveway behind the home. It was convenient to be able to park both off the street.

The home is very clean and tastefully decorated. Something we really appreciated were the multiple areas for lounging and TV viewing. On the best weather days, our kids all gathered at the seating areas out on the front courtyard to read and nap in the sun. Inside the home, gathering spots include the front living room, the hearth room adjoining the kitchen, and the second floor common area with an enormous sectional.

The HB house enabled us to gather our kids and their families from 3 states to enjoy quality family time together. Kim was wonderful communicating all of the details of our stay and always quick to respond to any question we had. Thanks for the memories in such a delightful setting! Five stars!

Kim was a delight to deal with. Great attitude, very welcoming and accommodating. The home was in immaculate condition. Very clean and comfy. Location was great too. Super close to everything. We will be visiting HB again and staying at Kim's rental.

Great location and neighborhood!!!

  • 5 of 5

The listing was exactly as described. We were able to house 10 people over Christmas, although we had to borrow an air mattress from my sister (who lives in the area).

The property is in very good condition. Clean and well maintained. The owner is stellar!! She responded quickly with any questions both prior to our arrival, once we were there, and following our check out.

The house is awesome!! The neighborhood location to the beach and downtown couldn't get much better. Easy walk to the beach and downtown. It was great having bikes - so some of the group could go to the beach when they wanted.

Because we are visiting over Christmas week, and the size of our group - we were cooking quite a bit and there was more than sufficient cooking utensils, dishware, glassware, etc.

Because of the close proximity to the neighbors (which are super nice) - this isn't a place for young partying types or young robust kids. Sound travels easily and not really set up for noise. Note for older folks - all the bedrooms are on the second and third floors. So if stairs/mobility is an issue - take note.

It's a great place!! If you are considering it - do it!! You won't regret it!!!

Beautiful, spacious, well kept home.

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 combined families of 10 people had a great week here. It was in a great location for us to be able to easily get to all of the places we wanted to see. We all fit comfortably with plenty of room to each have our own space, and with large enough areas for all of us to sit and be together at times as well. Easy walk to the beach, quick access to major highways or interstates to get to Disney and San Diego. Had one small issue with the ice machine in the fridge not working. When we reported it to the owner, they responded immediately and addressed the situation right away. Owner always responded very quickly with any communication and was always concerned with our enjoyment of our vacation as well as our comfort in their house. If we could make one suggestion it would be to make the loft bedroom a bit more like a bedroom. A couple of chairs and a small table for sitting, as well as somewhere to use as a closet space there would be very helpful. Overall we really enjoyed our week here and were very comfortable and we all slept very well in the comfy beds.
