Our family of 10 spent the week of July 4th at this property. It is in a great location and very convenient to all the local attractions, shopping, and beaches. The whole property is very family friendly with pool fencing and baby gates for the stairs – the layout worked well for our two toddler grandsons. We lived out by the pool and patio and really enjoyed sitting around the fire pit each night. The only drawback for our large family (we had to use the room for our toddler)was that the upstairs fourth bedroom is quite small and does not have a window for ventilation. They do have a floor fan you can use, but it still was very warm. The owner was very helpful and responsive when we had a question about the wifi connection.


The house was absolutely perfect!

This was our first time renting a vacation home and could not have asked for a more wonderful experience. Our family of nine (6 adults & 3 children) enjoyed every minute of our stay. The house was absolutely perfect and did not deviate from the pictures we saw on the website. The pool, hot tub, ping pong table, etc. were great fun for all. The house had everything you could imagine to make us feel at home…from the well equipped kitchen to the toys & towels! The house is very centrally located to stores, golf courses, beaches, theme parks & other fun places! The owners were fantastic in making sure everything was in good order and responded to any queries very quickly. The only problem we had during this week was that we had to leave at the end of it! This is a perfect vacation home for all ages and we would (and have) highly recommended this home to our family & friends. We are all saving our pennies to someday be able to return! Thanks, Destry & William for a wonderful memory-making vacation.

The home more than met our expectations.

We have rented many vacation homes, and this one has been the best! From the first encounter to our final departure everything went seamless. This home was absolutely perfect for our kids and family. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Everything was so clean and comfortable. The furniture, beds, and outdoor furniture were all really nice. We had 2 families with 4 children aged 5-14, and this home was so amazing! The kids loved all of the fun stuff, had a great time in the pool and playing in the game room. It had more than enough room for all of us. The home more than met our expectations. The pool and hot tub were perfect. The location was perfect for our grocery runs, and our outings. The kids really enjoyed having the pool heated! Everything was easy, simple and hassle free, so many nice amenities. Better and more comfortable than a hotel any day. Thank you very much for making our week one we will remember forever. We very enthusiastically recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing place to enjoy your family time. We look forward to coming back!

What an amazing place to stay for our holiday in California.

What an amazing place to stay for our holiday in California. Our stay here couldn’t have been more relaxed or more stress free. There was 9 of us in total, including a 1, 5 and 7 year old and this house was perfect. The owners had everything there to make our stay easy, including toys, baby gates, crib, high chair, etc, etc…the list goes on. Even DVR’s so we could record the NHL playoffs while we were out!! The 5 year old watched Tangled on the DVR every single night!! There was plenty of activities for everyone of all ages, making it harder to decide which we all enjoyed more…the theme parks or the pool days!! The owner was always fast with communication if we had any questions. We would love the chance to come back again…thank you for everything Destry.

This is a wonderful home environment with all the extras you would not expect in a rental property.

We had 7 adults and a 21 month old here on vacation and we totally enjoyed our stay. This is a wonderful home environment with all the extras you would not expect in a rental property. Toys, pool table, lot’s of outdoor gathering spaces with very nice bedrooms where you can still get away to yourself when needed. Extra blankets, pillows, towels, hair dryer, an iron, bagel toaster, special basket with items you may have forgotten …etc, and I must say the most helpful owners with any issues that might come up or suggestions on the best places to eat! We loved grilling outside and the kitchen had all the utensils, pot holders, pots & pan and serving trays we needed. Very clean property and very nice neighborhood. There were lots of extras and for a family vacation we had the best time going to near by places (LaJolla Beach, the Zoo and SeaWorld) as well as a Dodger game. Hated to leave! Won’t forget this vacation anytime soon!
