About Dan

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family agrees that this home has been our best VRBO experience ever. Super comfortable and clean and exceptionally well equipped. All the bedrooms are equally comfy (so no arguing over who gets which room). The location is perfect. Two blocks to the beach and walking distance to many good restaurants. Hardly used our car at all. There are two boardwalks along the beach that stretch for miles, one just for bikes which we really enjoyed. I also appreciated the owner's prompt responses to our questions. Thanks so much for providing us with a great mini vacation Dan!

Great location and tremendous house

  • 5 of 5

Went to this house with my family of four, my wife and two adult children, along with my sister and her husband. The house comes as advertised! Perfectly located between the two fun cities , a couple blocks from the beach, and with everything you need to enjoy the house and the beach. Really well stocked with things like soaps, detergents, garbage well as beach towels, chairs, coolers, bikes. Would recommend this place and would stay again for sure!

Charming, comfortable home moments away from the beach and town center

  • 5 of 5

My co-workers and I stayed in this lovely home while we were in LA for a video production. It was clean, cozy, 2 blocks from the ocean, and a 10-minute walk to the center of town with great restaurants and shops. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a getaway. The ocean is beautiful and I saw dolphins frolicking in the waves my first morning here! The beds were comfy. The set up was private enough for everyone to have their own space. The kitchen was equipped with everything you'd need plus it was perfect for socializing. A very nice place to stay!
