Cute mid-century house for a weekend stay
I stayed at this house with 5 other people over labor day weekend and we had a great time. Effort was definitely put into remodeling and decorating the house, and we enjoyed cooking meals in the open kitchen and relaxing in the pool and the backyard. The pictures in the listing accurately depict the house and yard, and everything was clean upon our arrival. All six of us were able to eat dinner at the dining table, and comfortably lounge on the couch for a Breaking Bad marathon. I always bring a few kitchen essentials with me when I stay at a rental property, but the owners have done a good job of stocking the kitchen with cooking utensils, pots, pans, dishes, etc. The wireless Bose stereo is a definite plus. I would recommend this property to others, subject to the caveats discussed below.
Some things to know:
- 6 people definitely maxed out the space in the house - I would not recommend this for a larger group unless you want to be fighting over bathroom space.
- The BBQ was out of propane and filthy when we arrived. The owner was very responsive when we called about the problem, but it still took a few hours to get the BBQ up and running after we arrived on Friday. A minor issue to be sure, but I did let the owner know that we were planning to use the BBQ prior to our arrival.
- There aren't very many towels in the house. Plan on one "pool towel" and one "bath towel" per person if you are with a group of 6. Again, a minor issue and easy enough to remedy by packing towels, but something we didn't know about in advance.
- There isn't a washing machine (at least not that we could find/access), which was fine for our four day stay but would have been an issue for a longer stay. They are remodeling the casita right now which may have affected access to the washer and dryer.
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Please note that a washer and dryer (located in the recently remodeled casita, which provides a fourth sleeping area, a third bathroom and additional work and lounging space) was added to this property after this guest's stay.
