It is so difficult to find a true “on the beach” experience in California. This beautiful property, which is literally on the beach, exceeded our expectations. Located at beautiful Manresa Beach, this well appointed and updated three level gem gave us multiple morning and sunset views. Typically, I am not inclined to review a rental property but this clean, well lit, comfortable gem has inspired me to share my experience. It is better than advertised. We saw whales spouting off shore on day one, and a sea lion pup came ashore to visit day two. The owner left detailed instructions to cover all possible scenarios, not that we needed to call. Coffee on the deck in the morning, cocktails while watching the sun set in the evening. Great fun on the beach in between. I can’t wait to go back. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
As other reviews say, this place is absolutely wonderful! From the booking process, the arrival, our stay, check-out and security deposit refund…everything went smoothly. With bedrooms and bathrooms on all three levels (the bonus room on the main level has a pull-out sofa and is not counted as a bedroom but with its own, full bathroom, it could easily be), it is perfect for groups, giving everyone some privacy. The pictures do a great job in showing the place and it is still nicer in person. And having direct access to the beach is absolutely amazing! I wish we could have stayed longer!!

Great place! Getting in to the property (gated) and the beach house was well explained and easy. The photos show it almost exactly as it is-only better once you arrive. Clean, bright and everything you need is right there. We watched sea life (dolphins, seals or otters) almost every morning from the deck while we had coffee. the beach allowed us long walks each day. It was a little cool and overcast but we did have one nice beach day, and the day we left would have been another. Loved it. The owner was very easy to reach and quick to respond all by e-mail, she gave her phone number, although we never had to call her. Really great place!!!!
