4/5 Good

Great location and perfect size pool
We had a great time in Seal Beach. Location is 1/2 block from the sand and perfect for walking around the cute Main Street shops. Our kids played in the pool most of the time and the fence around the pool plus the fully fenced yard helped us keep an eye on our two year old. We only left the property one day to go see the observatory and universal studios. Our kids would have been fine with another pool/beach day. The home is a little dated but it was clean and the furniture was comfortable. The layout is a little funny in the basement with the bathroom being in the living room area instead of near the master. That threw our sleeping arrangements off. We planned on having two kids sleep there but ended up just giving the grandparents that whole space and putting all 4 kids in one room upstairs. The kitchen was small but well-appointed. Using the oven from 1960’s was a little scary but we worked around it. There are so many amazing restaurants in the area that I’ll skip the oven next time. Pool was wonderful and hot tub was hot! It was possibly one of our favorite low-key relaxing vacations ever.

5/5 Excellent

Very nice accomodations

5/5 Excellent

Pam has thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. And you cannot beat the location!
This was our third time staying at this VRBO. Love the location, the hot tub and the comfort of the home. Hope to make it a fourth stay some day!

4/5 Good

Comfortable stay near the beach
We stayed 1 month and enjoyed our stay very much. The house was comfortable and well equipped. We had games and videos when the weather was not good. The location is excellent, really very close to the beach and Main st.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing, location, location, location!
We were delighted in the overall experience of staying at this house right by the beach and that we were walking distance to any restaurant, bar, grill, snack shop, taco truck, pastry shop, etc. The location is unbeatable. We were all very comfortable and loved the hot tub and pool. The kitchen had all sizes of bowls, pots and pans, cooking utensils, etc. Nice additions everywhere. The property is a little older, but quaint and quite beachy! Indoor decorations were cute and made me really feel I was at the beach. I had a couple of concerns, which were quickly remedied by Pam. She was prompt and more than accommodative. We are coming back to enjoy this amazing beach experience!
