Lovely house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience. Greg was very easy to work with and made us feel very welcome. The house was spotless when we walked in, and the views and ample sunlight all day were very inviting. We had 4 adults and two small children, and had more than enough room. Great location, and no problem getting Ubers for additional transportation. The movie collection in the closet and the beach gear all came in very handy as well!

Well cared for

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my mom's birthday and it was wonderful. The home was spacious and more importantly, VERY clean. My mom is a stickler about cleanliness and she was impressed. The host, Greg, was extremely kind and ensured we had a smooth stay. He left us a bottle of wine for my mom and delicious artisan coffee from a local joint.

The home is a quick 10-15 minute drive to downtown and we mostly took Uber. There was fast internet, comfortable beds, reliable hot water, and a deck to enjoy the sunset. We could not have asked for a better stay!

Awesome place to stay with fabulous views of the town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Greg's place for 3 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place is in a quiet neighborhood near the riviera/mission canyon, it is spacious and well maintained, has a big patio and a backyard overlooking the town of SB at a distance. More luxurious than any hotel stay!

Greg was super helpful and communicative in addressing all of our queries and needs. He was very accommodative of our requests for additional stuff such as beach blankets, beach chairs, toys etc.

Would love to stay at his place again!

Spotless and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay! House was just as the photos suggested. Plenty of room. TV’s in every room! The owner was thorough and friendly and showed us around. Notebook was full of good ideas and information. Beds were comfortable with lots of fluffy pillows. Loved coffee on the deck, only two minor inconveniences, driveway is steep and checkout time is a little early, 10:00am. Wished we could have stayed longer! Thanks Greg

It is a lovely property. The house is roomy and well appointed, lots of space to spread out and hang

  • 5 of 5

There were 2 couples and a good friend so the 3 bedroom 2 bath was perfect. The house is laid out well, open living and dining area and a nice kitchen. There were lots of towels provided, both beach and bath. It was sparkling clean when we got there and Greg allowed us to put our luggage in the house earlier than check in so we would not have to leave it the cars. It is a short Uber ride into town which we did on both days. When a group is travelling together we love to rent a house because we can all be together. This house is large enough so people could also have their own space. It is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood and felt like home. We all would definitely recommend it as a place to stay.
