Stephanie's place was so excellent for my small family, particularly for the kids, that we're already trying to plan our return trip. She left everything that we could possibly need and in places where we always found them. And with small children, that was very helpful. The place was spotless when we got there, smelled great and everything was clean. There were toys and puzzles and board games left for my kids to enjoy, a sandbox in the courtyard, also a grill in the courtyard for barbecuing. The area is very quiet and family friendly, the neighbors are wonderful. Truly each one we met could not have been nicer, lots of open doors and welcoming smiles. They even let my children walk in and out of their houses, and play endlessly with their pets. We always felt very welcome and comfortable. The beach is a short walk away, my kids played there most days and we walked there for sunset almost every night. My husband enjoyed the awesome surfing you could do right off Tourmaline. Grocery store is a block away, Oskar's, the famous fish taco spot, is right around the corner. Trader Joe's, Whole Food's, Von's and CVS are all a nice walk or a quick drive away. Stephanie cleared out the garage so we always had parking, although street parking was never difficult for my guests. We can't say enough good things about this place. Honestly the only bad thing is that we're not still there.
