Great for families with kids! As one of our guests wrote: 'The smiles on my children's faces were wonderful! They also loved the toys in the house. Ocean Beach Park was a very nice treat. What a beautiful spot! Thanks for renting to us on such short notice. Your beautiful home has been the highlight of our two week vacation, including D.C. and NYC! (Michelle W., Oregon, 7/1/2013)
