Great Potential, But......
Beautiful setting in a town with close proximity to incredible redwood groves. The ocean is literally just across the street and the large living room and master bedroom windows afford a wonderful sunset view, only partially obstructed by a scatter of trees. This is a spacious house in a town with a reasonable array of restaurants and shopping nearby. The neighborhood seemed OK. The street could be a bit busy but it was quiet overall. Great location, awesome views and beach access. That's the good. I am a frequent traveller who rents condos, homes, guest houses etc. often. In my opinion, this rental needs a few things addressed in order to more of an ideal vacation destination. In addition to being a bit cluttered with pianos and a rather large unusable tube television among other things, the living room furniture is in serious need of replacement. To be blunt, it is shot. Considering the living room with it's magnificent view is the big appeal of this property, it is unfortunate the sofa setting makes the room nearly unusable. Certainly unenjoyable. My suggestion, new living room furniture is essential in making this property desirable for return visits. The owner is seemingly a very nice person but when asked to write a review I would be doing her a disservice if I were not honest. This house has so much more potential for a minimal investment: Declutter, new living room furniture, sheets and bedding which match and before I forget, a hot water heater with a capacity to keep up with two showers running at once. With a few upgrades, this property could be a dream destination. Warmest regards to the owner, I wish her success with this property as a vacation rental in a great setting.
