A wonderful week1

July 22, 2012

The house was very comfortable and had all the amenities. The location is perfect. We saw dolphins, seals; and peligans hunting everyday. We would stay there again without a second thought.

California's Secret

January 13, 2011

As a native California I will share a secret that the locals understand - the weather is incredible in October and November. What a great place to stay and enjoy it. The sound of the ocean, the views and the great location plus the well stocked and decorated home equals an A+++ place for anyone. The master bath is dreamy. I loved the etched glass. I highly recommend this rental.

Wine and Whales

April 13, 2010

We have had the pleasure of staying at this beach front home during all four seasons, each giving us a new and exciting experience. The home is well maintained, beautiful and is walking distance to everything you may want to do or need, including a wonderful restaurant called Cafe Rio. Our favorite spot is the 2nd deck where we love to open a bottle of wine and view the whales and dolphins. Bring your binoculars! We have been with lots of family and by ourselves and have always been comfortable.

The Best Vacation Spot

January 16, 2010

My family along with my sister-in-law's family stayed at the 393 Beach Dr. home and had a wonderful time. We stayed here during the summer, and loved it, so we returned the following winter and it was just as nice. The house has a great bbq area in the back, a family room for kids to hang out, a large beautiful kitchen, a jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom, and a living room (with a great view of the beach) for the adults to relax. There were several of us there on this past trip and we utilized the entire house. We had teenagers watching movies and playing cards in the family room; kids playing upstairs; and the adults socializing in the living room and bbq area. The beach is right out front and you can watch the kids play in the sand from the upstairs balcony. During our stay in the summer the beach in front of the home was never crowded. The public restrooms and parking lots are located at both ends of the beach where as the 393 house in the middle. So most of the people visiting the beach stay near the public restrooms and parking lots. This is our #1 place to vacation to and we will continue to make a trip there every summer and winter.

Best 3 Day Retreat EVER!!!!!

January 4, 2010

I have had the wonderful opportunity to have stayed at this beach house two different occassions - once in the summer and this past time in right before New Years - both times have been amazing. Each time was with family and friends and it was perfect! The house is set up to be cozy and inviting and there is always something to do. The beach is right out the front door - there is a wonderful second floor balcony that overlooks the beach - a great room with movies and games. You want for nothing! This past stay, I had kids asking me if we could stay longer! You will not be disappoined staying at 393 Beach Drive!!!!!! Dawn Hale-Miller

Fantastic place to spend Christmas

December 27, 2009

Ages from 5 to 81 and all agree that this beach home is wonderful. Lots of amenities and space to separate yourself from group if you want to read or be alone. The family room was a great place for the younger people to hang out when not on the beach collecting treasures and digging in the sand. The protected balcony is a great place to use telescope, drink coffee, watch the sun go down or just sit and relax. Master bath was a big hit with grand daughters as the tub has a Jacuzzi and that made their day. Plenty of bathroom facilities for large family. The home is decorated with a loving touch, all rooms have great pictures and treasures. Thanks for sharing with us. Merry Christmas Donna Jones San Jose

Great Location/ Great Beach House

November 9, 2009

This beach house is perfect for a wonderful vacation by week or weekend. It's very clean, well stocked with all supples a family needs. Great location across the beach. We have stayed at five other beach houses on Beach Drive(some at more of a cost) and this one is superior to all others. The layout is wonderful. You even have a card table for those who want to play cards or games. The deck is wonderful as you overlook the beach. The master bathroom is gorgeous. We are going back to this one; we won't try any others. We found the perfect beach house! Thank you for sharing it with us, Linda Mohr

Fabulous Beach Paradise!

September 23, 2009

We escaped to this fabulous beach house for a family celebration & we were all thrilled with the house. It is not only beautiful but it is comfortable and just steps from the beach!! We watched the dolphins from the upstairs deck! AMAZING!! We loved the cobble rock fireplace. We even enjoyed a fire on the beach!

Labor Day Birthday Fun!

September 11, 2009

This beach house is absolutely fantastic! Layout is great-I also liked the family room separate from the kitchen area-gave the teens some place to "hang" and the tile floors make for easy cleaning of the sand! Decor is darling-a lot of special touches that I have in my own home! Hope to stay again sometime.

Very nicely kept house

July 29, 2009

This house is very nicely kept and well furnished. Mattresses are almost new and were much appreciated, although the one in the Master Bedroom is a little soft if you like a firmer mattress. It is a great family place. We've been renting in the area and in Hawaii for many years, and for us this was one of the top places, particularly because there is a nice sized patio in back, quite private and a great spot in which to barbecue. The master bath is very nicely done with shower, jacuzzi tub, dual sinks. Owners very responsive.We were quite surprised to find a nice bottle of wine awaiting our arrival . . never happened before in the area (and the family has been renting there for about 90 years. The house has a living room in front next to the dining and kitchen areas and a large family room in back. This room was great for our annual costume party at the beach. The small refrigerator upstairs was very helpful. Right across from the beach. Can definitely recommend. Dr. J

fun in the sun at best beach

July 5, 2009

Wonderful location and view at the great Rio Del Mar beach. Once you get here the home has everything and the back yard is great for bbq and hosing off. Having a living room and a seperate family room gives kids and adults their own space and the 3 baths help too. The second floor deck is shielded from the wind and is great for coffee and relaxing with a great book. The home is very cute and clean and the owners have put in extras to make your stay very special. This beach has life Guards and fun bonfires. Also can walk to deli and restaurant. Being steps from such a long stretch of beautiful beach is priceless. Hope to return again next year.
