This house is cute and has some charm but it is old and needs some attention. The hot tub was awesome. Clean and hot. The furnishings were ok except the mattresses were cheap and uncomfortable. There is no disposal or dishwasher which is ok for a short visit. The oven is unusable. It only goes to 287 degrees. The fridge was fine. The washer and dryer were both ready to die. Very loud and don't work properly. The hot water in the bathroom only trickles out so you have to wash hands and brush teeth in the kitchen. The sheets in my room were not clean so I slept on top of the covers with the only extra blanket I could find. You will need to bring blankets. The bedroom heaters are baseboard and a wall heater in living area. I didn't trust any of them. Probably the worst thing was that there is no lights at the entrance or in the porch/mud room as you enter. Very dangerous especially if you are arriving at night like we did. Bring a flashlight. The distance to the beach is farther than they let on too, and you have to cross 101. Like I said, it has potential but needs some upgrades to be a rental. We won't be renting there again.
While the proximity to the beach was a little off (and doesn't mention that the "3 block walk" requires crossing HWY 101) there's little else I can complain about. We wanted a place that was pet-friendly with an outdoor grill and a hot tub, and that is exactly what we got. The kitchen was spacious and well appointed - I love to cook and had a great time doing so there. The hot tub was clean, comfy, and hot. The yard was spacious enough for my two mutts to run amok (and not escape... bonus). My husband's comment was that this is perhaps the nicest rental we've stayed in on the coast, and I agree. Calm mornings sipping coffee with the fresh air blowing in, cooking with the evening sun glowing through the trees... charming and relaxing. And the neighbor to the east was a delight to talk to as well!
