Jeff is a very friendly and accommodating host. Communication was very good. His place is easy to get to, within walking distance to the beach and convenient to other attractions in the area. His place is consistent with the description and photos on AirBnB. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay again.
The room was exactly as described and was very clean, organized, and stocked with extras (snacks, teas, bottled water, beach towels, paper plates/plastic cups, shampoo/conditioner etc.). The bed is very comfortable and the shower is in great shape (solid water pressure/heat). Jeff was extremely friendly and couldn't have been more accommodating. His suggestions for local restaurants were all spot on. I spent a lot of time biking around the beach boardwalk (cruiser provided by Jeff), watching surfers, and exploring the peninsula. The area is beautiful and I wouldn't hesitate to return and stay with Jeff for another relaxing vacation.
Jeff was very helpful right when we arrived and gave us lots of information and helpful tips. The bikes he let us use as well were great! Definitely a perk if you're interested in riding around the boardwalk. The location really doesn't get much better either. As Jeff mentions in his post - you can hear them walking above and hear the laundry. This didn't bother me since they didn't walk around during the night so you only really notice it in the day time and we were out and about enjoying the sun during the day anyways. Jeff is also really good at checking in to see if you need anything and offered umbrellas when it started to rain. Overall good place to stay!
Thanks to Jeff and his family we had a wonderful week in southern CA! Not only was our room exactly what is represented on AirB&B, but you soon feel like you are the families guest. Jeff shared bicycles that are great to get around on, the families State Park pass saving us on entrance fees, great restaurants and even got the help from neighbors when we found ourselves with a flat! You definitely will not be disappointed with your visit in the areas under this roof. All of the reviews are spot on.
We also brought back to Texas some SOCA vocabulary that we can't wait to try out. All in all the stay was totally gnarly!

Jeff and his family were absolutely wonderful! I don't think I could say enough nice things about them. From our easy check in experience (where Jeff walked us through everything we needed to know) to Jeff giving us great recommendations for food and places to go (he's a wealth of knowledge!) to all the goodies in our room it was truly a great stay. We had everything we needed and more. And Jeff would check on us each day to make sure we had everything we needed. Staying at Jeff's was definitely a highlight of our trip. And his place is in a great area, a couple blocks from the beach and walking distance to many restaurants, pubs etc. Would stay with Jeff and his family again in a heartbeat!
Jeff was a dynamic and friendly host. The room and location were perfect for enjoying the beach and general area. We had a fantastic time! Thank you, Jeff!
jeff is a great, welcoming host.
The room is comfortable, quiet and roomier than most hotel rooms.
plus jeff was able to order the most fantastic weather for our stay! 80 degrees during the day and cool, lovely breezes at night.
not many hosts can offer that!
