The house is ideally located for access to the beach (a bit of a drive to the freeways for trips to attractions), but the house is extremely noisy. The adjoining houses (including one directly behind the house) are so close that conversations by the neighbors are heard loud and clear in the house. The house also has wood floors, which amplify every sound within the house. A conversation in the kitchen is clearly heard by people trying to rest in the bedrooms. The floors are also warped...as if the place flooded and the floors were never properly repaired.
