This house is located in ine of the coolest little california beach towns. On arrival, with barefeet on the beachy wide planked hardwood floors, I immediatley took a sigh of relief and realized this house, in this location was the right choice. A short 10 walk to the beach and cool shops, restaurants and market will keep you out of your car and in vacation mode. Highly reccomended!

This beautiful "Pottery Barn Meets France" property exceeds all expectations. As others have written, it is perfectly and thoughtfully appointed, immaculately clean, and sooooo comfortable and quiet. We simply have fallen in love with the house, the breathtaking sunset views from the living room windows, the peaceful garden/deck, the location that is close to beach and everything else. You walk into this house and unwind in a nano-second. Our twenty-something son and his girlfriend have enjoyed being here as much as we have. We are still here for a few more days and are already planning our next visit. Next time we will bring a grandchild or two to sleep in the darling bunk beds and play with the dress-up box. Perfect, perfect.

Happy Family

  • 5 of 5
We had 6 People staying at Noni's gorgeous beach house. 4 adults and 2 small children. Room enough for everyone. We stayed in the bunk bed room with the kids, my mom in the master and my brother in the second bedroom. No detail was left unturned. If I could dream of a beach house this would be it!! Very comfortable. Not far from Lego land, San Diego and Safari Land which are wonderful for kids!! Everything was provided for at the house. Games and books. Kids did not turn on the TV once, unless the iPad counts 😉 The Market down the road was perfect to get dinners prepared or cookout. Quiet neighborhood felt very safe. The beach was incredible!!! Hope to be able to come back again soon!!

Perfect Beach Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in this lovely, quaint, incredibly well appointed, perfect beach cottage! Absolutely as described and more! Private spaces indoors and out. Plenty of room for 5 of us- 2 adults and 3 grandchildren-ages 14,18 and 21-with room left over! :)
It was very clean and neat, plenty of space for belongings, and very well maintained.
Large washer and dryer- great for washing all of our clothes, towels and beach towels.
Very comfortable beds! Awesome towels- big and soft! Great linens and lots of blankets- tho we didn't need them as it was unusually warm that week.
And even w/o AC, the cottage stayed reasonable cool in the afternoon and the nights and mornings were perfect due to the ocean breezes flowing constantly up the hill and into the garage/newly finished carpeted rec room. We placed the fans into the hall to draw the cool ocean breezes thru the house. And there are ceiling fans in ALL 3 bedrooms.
Plenty of places to stretch out "do your own thing"- we could be visiting in the living room while another was sunbathing on a comfy lounger on the deck or patio while another was watching tv in the rec room or master Bdrm or napping in another Bdrm. And the eating spaces are awesome- we ate breakfast at the cute roomy breakfast nook and lunches and dinners at the incredible trestle table with tons of VERY comfy seating! We used the very large, very easy to use gas grill on the deck for most dinners.
The owner is always available to answer any questions. I would DEFINITELY recommend this property to friend or relative, in fact, we plan on coming back as often as we can!!
The kids enjoyed the beach everyday- within walking distance. They went surfing, rented wave riders, went kayaking, we went shopping of course, ate out a couple of times (tons of great restaurants). got carry-out couple of times, everyone must have a California burrito from Lourdes, at least once.
All in all, the week went too fast and we were sad we had to leave!
