We spent five lovely days at Michael's apartment. The view from the front room was mesmerizing: two large windows framed by the Pacific Ocean. This light and airy room was perfect for lounging and watching the beach activity. After my morning runs, I particularly enjoyed sitting on the porch, sipping my coffee and observing the people walk by. As other reviewers have stated, however, the unit could benefit from some much needed updates. With new sheets and mattresses, the apartment would be greatly improved.
Wonderful! It was the trip of a lifetime. Michael made our trip extra special. He let us use surf boards, boogy boards, skate boards, and smash ball. We had use of the laundry, garage, and more but the VIEW was beyond compare! Michael was wonderful from start to finish. Awesome!!
The view from the front room is amazing! The kitchen and living room are very cozy. We were just steps to the ocean. The living room was decorated with poinsettias and Christmas lights for our holiday booking.
For the price, there could be more attention to details like written instructions, cleanliness, no burned out light bulbs and small amenities like bedside tables with lights, extra blankets, toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, carpet shampooed, etc. The bedrooms could be made a little cozier like the front room. There is only one overhead light in the master bedroom. The host gave us use of the beach bikes and that was wonderful as well.
What a perfect place for a weekend getaway. The location could not get any better, we were just steps to the beach. Michael was extremely accommodating. He contacted me within hours of booking & couldn't have made it any easier for us. The unit itself was great. It had everything we could ever possibly need & the layout was perfect. The kitchen is open to the living room which makes it a nice open floor plan for the main area. There are large windows on the front of the unit with the incredible view of the beach. There is also a front patio that's great to sit on & people watch along with a grill as well. Michael was kind enough to let us use the beach cruisers too. Overall, I would definitely rent this unit again. It made for a much needed relaxing, beautiful weekend.
Great location. Clean place. Accomidating host.

This is a perfect location for any beach activity, right in front of a lifeguard tower with lots of kids and families, surfing and standup paddle surfing in the mornings, and is a good spot for volleyball or swimming. Right on the strand for walking, running, or biking. The condo has an incredible view of the beach, ocean, and the pier. We had a great family vacation here, thanks for the hospitality.
