      Run down, unclean

      I was very disappointed in the condition of this property, it smelled and the floors were so dirty our feet were blackened. The tablecloth had food stuck in it. The bathroom is falling apart, tiles coming of the wall, water pressure was nil. We took showers and the tub was very slippery, unsafe. The kitchen had minimal supplies compared to other places we have stayed and many of the dishes and pans were dirty. The ultimate was the one dishwasher pod that was left for us, this was intentional as it was left in a cup labeled "diswasher pod". Our party was 5 adults, you can't get by with one dishwasher run for 3 nights so we had to hand wash the dishes. The backyard was dirty and uncared for. There were rodent droppings in the freezer and there was obvious rodent damage around the water heater. The twin beds were so squeaky they woke us up when we were sleeping in another room. The charges for this property are outrageous compared to the condition of the property.

      5/5 Excellent

        Comfortable and clean

        It was a very nice experience. Walking distance to the ocean. I would definitely do this again.

          Fantastic

          This house exceeded our expectations. It was roomy, comfortable and incredibly clean. Absolutely loved how close to the beach it was, one never needs to move the car. Enojyed the fireplace! Cant wait to come back for a week stay. Thanks so much for the use of this lovely home.

          5/5 Excellent

            Great Place To Stay

            We enjoyed our stay very much. It was a comfortable house that was just a few minutes walk from the beach. The area was quiet and a short drive away from Santa Cruz. We would definitely stay here again.

              Cute Beach Getaway

              We had a wonderful time at the house. Everything was clean when we arrived. It's only a couple blocks from the beautiful Rio Del Mar Beach. The patio space in the backyard is great. It's enclosed and relatively private. The electric grill is medium sized, so cooking for six on it wasn't a problem. There's also a nice front porch for relaxing and enjoying the summer night. While there are fire rings on the beach, they're in short supply (at least on weekends). People had been holding them down to reserve them since the afternoon. The house is on the small side for a 3 bedroom (the third bedroom doesn't have a door -- it's more of an alcove off of the rear landing). The half bathroom has only a privacy curtain between it and the master bedroom. It worked out great for us, but if you need more privacy and separation, it might feel a bit cramped.
