A great place, but scary for older tottery people.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely place. We enjoyed it. But as a tottery old woman, the stairs were scary (I fell on one of them, but was OK) and I would have liked a slipper chair in my bedroom - the master bedroom. Getting out of bed the floor was slippery, but we used the shower mat. The rest of the place was great. We had a good time.

Great location. Clean updated property.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family of 5. Owners very responsive to any issue (we had a very small one and addressed immediately). Pool and hot tub were great. Heated up immediately. Pool was cleaned as soon as we arrived. Very clean place and comfortable for the entire family.

Exceptional Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Julie and David's home, nestled in a quiet neighborhood provided an ideal launching point to explore the best of what Southern California has to offer. Moreover, we enjoyed walking to the nearby restaurants, shops and grocery store. The grounds of the home were very well kept and the pool and spa where an added bonus. The owners have thought of every possible need within the house with new appliances, (washing/dryer, dishwasher, refrigerators, gas grill, et al). The new master bath was really beautiful. More importantly, the home's furnishings are very comfortable with lots of books and games provided. It was a pleasure to return to the home after a day of exploring that was so comfortable. Really a special home!
