Great location, excellent views, house leaves something to be desired
Our host Lori was great, very responsive to our inquiries. The location is immediately across the street from beach access. We spent a good amount of time at the tide pools poking around. The house also makes for a great base when exploring the Redwoods. Those are the positives. I am reluctant to provide a poor review but at the nightly cost plus VRBO fees I think travelers can find better deals. As for the home itself, it needs to be refreshed. When we arrived the house smelled like it needed to be aired out for a week. The beds and pillows were not comfortable and frankly when I see a pillow with stains on the cover it leaves a lot to be desired. Their are four couches in the living room, two of them are broken down and uncomfortable so basically we just sat on the love seat or at the dining room table to enjoy the views. The kitchen appears to be well stocked. Lori had advised us that she had family staying in the house prior to our arrival so we weren't surprised that the beds weren't made. I attempted to dry the sheets and towels so that we could make the bed only to find out that the dryer doesn't work. I sorted through the drawers to find sheets for the bed, there were no complete sets so we just made due with what could be found. The listing reports to sleep 10 people, however there were not enough linens that could support that many people. If you are really into television the TV in the bedroom doesn't work so don't be disappointed. Lastly, it appears that the garage is just a dumping ground for beer bottles, recyclables and garbage from renters. I realize this isn't an area of the house that we would typically be visiting but when the washer and dryer is located in this area you sort of need to visit it. It just isn't a clean environment that you would want to see in a home you are renting therefore I can't recommend this home to other renters.
