GREAT location, not the best experience

  • 3 of 5

Couldn't get into the garage with the code when we arrived, and it wasn't resolved until late in day 2 (of 3). Owners not terribly responsive. Description indicated laundry detergent was included. I searched everywhere, asked owners. Never found soap, and owners never did answer. Chair on porch broke and husband went tumbling. I will go back to Balboa, but will look for a different rental.

Nice place to stay if you want to be close to the ocean.

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was a nice and clean place. It was a little dated. If you are expecting a Hilton type of room, don't. It is not right on the beach but is only a 2 minute walk to the beach which was nice. There is a school that blocks almost all of the view of the beach but none the less still nice to be close. There are three units to this rental. We had the upstairs one. There was an attached roof deck that was nice to sit on and enjoy the ocean air and we were able to see a glimpse of the beach from there. There were six of us and found that there was plenty of room. It was sort of a balancing act with one bathroom and four females trying to get ready in the morning but overall it was workable. It was nice to have a full kitchen with cooking utensils and pans with some seasonings. The grill also worked well and had gas in it while we were there. The state of the propane is the responsibility of the renters. If you have a large vehicle don't plan on being able to comfortably park in the garage. It is very small and made for a car the size of a small compact. Overall impression is I would go there again.

Not the best VRBO experience I've had...

  • 3 of 5

This VRBO had some issues. The photos are pretty accurate, but it was not clean and maintained as well as most others I have stayed at over the last 4 years. Carpets in bedroom desperately need shampooing, bed frame on King bed broken, TV did not work the entire time we were there for 4 days (despite a text to the owner). Our car would not fit in the tiny garage, so we had to use street parking. Other small things were missing, like no washcloths with the towels and no soap for the shower. Kitchen was clean and maintained, though. I also found the owners hard to communicate with beforehand. I requested a copy of my contract to understand cancellation and deposit refund policies. But I never received a copy, even after 3 asks. You may want to take the above into consideration before you book.

Couple things could be better

  • 3 of 5

The cleanliness was good, however, I would say it is not kid friendly, we had to move several glass breakable things out of the kids reach and move them back before we left. Also for kids the high top chairs didn't work for our little ones (didn't want them to fall and get hurt). The refrigerator door handle was broken. And in the afternoon/evenings the sun blairs in so brightly through the Arcadia door which is missing half the blinds and through the kitchen window above the sink that has no blinds, it makes cooking very un enjoyable, and it makes the place really warm. Other than that the location was good, an easy walk to the beach, the beach is awesome there, barely any people. The bed was comfortable. The place was clean. It was nice that they have a washer and dryer. Location was good, a lot to eat and grocery stores. We would stay again if those few things changed.

I took a group of 15 year old girls to the beach and they had a blast. The property fit us perfectly

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is perfect half way between both piers. It has a wonderful large deck that sits above all other properties so very relaxing. There are a few things that need upgrading but overall we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was well stocked in the kitchen and the beds were very comfortable. We will be back
