Great for Families with Kids
We loved staying in the condo. Our 4 year old slept on the fold out sofa and we put the 15 month old in her pack and play in the closet. My husband jerry-rigged a sheet to make the room darker. It was the first vacation we've taken that the kids slept past 5 am. It was heaven! Also, looking at all the photos above, it seems like the pool is right outside the sliding glass doors. I thought my son might try to get out there, but the pool is not accessible directly from the condo. It's right downstairs through another door. If you have a crawler (which we do), I would recommend bringing outlet covers with you. I've just taken to bringing them on vacation wherever we stay anyway. Also, the TV in the main room does work. It just takes about 10 minutes for it to load all the data. We tried doing everything manually, but we never seemed to figure out the trick to getting it to come on quickly. Also, you only have local stations, but the on-demand feature has a lot to choose from. It's very safe and the owner is very friendly; however, I would recommend contacting her a few days in advance if she hasn't done so already. We were driving the next morning at 5am to LA with both of our kids and we hadn't heard anything by 7PM the night before. We were freaking out! But, I left a voice mail and texted her and she did finally text me that she'd been out of town for awhile and the reception was touchy. My son broke the toilet paper holder in the bathroom. We replaced it with another one, but she was really cool about that happening. We also had planned to stay with our friends in Huntington Beach that following weekend, and we found out that our friend's Mom died. I asked the owner if the condo was available that weekend. It was booked, but she said we could stay there Friday night as long as we could leave by 8:30 the next morning so the cleaning people could come in. That was so kind and considerate that she offered to do that for us. Overall, the beach is fairly close, there's an awesome, heated pool, tandem parking spots and a really nice security guard. We felt very safe there and we'll make this our first choice for the next LA trip. Thanks again!
