3/5 Okay

Great location, house needs a lot of work!
The online pictures are not very accurate. The property has a lot of areas you cannot use or access (outside stairway, upstairs kitchen etc). The location is excellent but the property has a lot of deferred maintenance that needs immediate attention. Great ocean views from the top two stories but you can't open the windows in the master suite to enjoy fresh air and hear the ocean. Lots of windows do not open making it feel unsafe. Patio had a lot of bird poop and flies. Gnats in the kitchen too. BBQ took forever to heat up and wasn't clean. The house is right on the sand and close to everything but the house needs work.

4/5 Good

Very good
Fantastic location for our diverse 14 member family. From beach volleyball with the net 20 feet away, ocean waves, fire pit for evening smores, soccer pickup in grass park, to easy access of restaurants, bikes and fun watching everyone pass by on the boardwalk. We had enough beds for our family. I would have appreciated the patio to be cleaned prior to our stay, due to all the bird crap, wood and sand. I would have also thought the windows overlooking the sand/ocean to be cleaned. Overall, great time and would go back again.

4/5 Good

Reservations were handled very well—even accommodating a one year postponement due to Covid. Our family enjoyed the visit very much. Access to the beach could not be better. The home itself and some furniture are old and could use some upgrades. Kitchen is small and needs a remodel. The oven didn’t work. The refrigerator is very small for the number of people accommodated in the house. Master bedroom is spacious and attractive. Other bedrooms are small but adequate. Some mattresses ought to be replaced. These comments are made out of a desired to be helpful, not critical. Our family would probably do it again.

3/5 Okay

Don’t rely on pictures!
We had a great time! We had four families, 16 people total. The house is old and heavily used. Lots of things didn’t work. The garage door was glitchy and the dishwasher didn’t work. After we booked the house, the welcome instructions state that the extra kitchen is non-functional and the deck off the master bedroom is unstable. The welcome instructions have the wrong address to put into the gps, so it was a little bit of a mix-up getting to the house. The master bedroom has the non-functional kitchen in it and is called the “casita” in the description. The 7th bedroom across the inner courtyard is suitable for older children only, no adults or little kids. The sheets were clean, but there was some black mold in an upstairs bathroom. The property manager was great about trying to fix things during the week. That said, the location is great. Everyone had a great time.

3/5 Okay

Will certainly investigate the quality of the property thoroughly before using another VRBO.
Property was minimally clean, but very old. Description of the property was misleading given that at least four of the beds were hydra beds. Also did not disclose the number of beds that were doubles which for two adults was very uncomfortable. Just did not meet expectations for the cost.
