Everything you need !

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 6 nights here. Clean, Clean, Clean ! Very spacious, three couples and 2 children stayed at the house and had plenty of room ! This is the 12 rental property we have rented for vacations and this is bar far the cleanest we have ever stayed in. Was presently surpised to find they had the property was stocked with coffee, handsoap and even clothes washing supplies! Great location, within walking distance of many good resturants, uptown Whittier had many quaint shops. Would highly recommend this property and would absolutely stay again !!
