    Staying in this home will give you a relaxing, peaceful and unbelievable trip to get away from everyday life stresses. You can’t go wrong in choosing this property. The view and close proximity to the surf sounds are the best. If you have never been to this area i highly recommend it. There is so much to see and do if you want to. I personally like to stay put and enjoy every minute right there on the premises soaking up the solitude and going down to the private beach where you will practically have all to yourself. The home is nicely decorated with a beachy vibe. The beds are very comfortable. There is plenty of comfortable seating which I find important since as I said, I enjoy staying put. Cooking meals there is a plus although there are lots of dining out options. The kitchen is pretty well stocked with all the essentials but if you need something the store close by in Manchester has everything you need. If tv is important to you the only option at this property is Netflix streaming. No regular tv channels are available. There is a dvd player. It is fun to keep and eye out for whale sightings (bring binoculars) along with deer, quail, bunnies, fox in the yard.! You really can’t go wrong with this rental. It truly is heavenly.

  • Could have been better


    Difficult to get answers from Evolve. My questions went unanswered for days. It took awhile to go from VRBO to Evolve then a local contact. Lockbox needs to be easier to use. The place needs a deep cleaning, Even the table was sticky as was areas along sides if dishwasher and baseboards.Screening the hot tub is a must. It is viewed by the neighborhood.

    Manager's Response:

    Rhonda, we take it seriously when guests let us know that we missed the mark and after sending your feedback to the homeowner, they’d like to share the following:
    -Generally, guests can count on Evolve to answer any questions related to a booking or pre-stay information, however, guests are referred to the guest contact for on-the-ground issues. We apologize if this wasn't clearly explained to you or if you had trouble contacting Evolve. They provide specific instructions within the pre-stay email that states: 'Please inform the Guest Contact of any problems or concerns upon arrival, so we can work to address these immediately
    -The lockbox is a standard hardware store lockbox, and we have never had a complaint. It's been there since it has been a vacation home in 2019
    -We, as a team, strive to provide a clean, comfortable, and pleasant place for guests to stay and we apologize for the issues you encountered and that our hospitality and attention to detail left something to be desired on this occasion. We will address your concerns so that future guests do not share the same experience
    -Because this property is on the "Corridor View" of the California Coastal Commission, there are very strict rules regarding building and blocking the view for others in the neighborhood. The spa was there when the property was purchased and on the flattest portion of the property nearest the ocean. The advertised photos of the surrounding grounds of the home in relation to the street and front of the property clearly show how far back the spa area is from the street and therefore privacy is maximized as much as possible. The exposure to the public is very limited as even from the street, walkers cannot see the spa. Furthermore, property owners are not allowed to build fences higher than three feet between neighbors let alone off the street or surrounding the house itself. There is already a three-foot fence separating the property and the public sidewalk which helps to hide the spa area
    -We were in the typical cleaning process of the home when you arrived early at the property and apologize that the cleaning staff was not able to finish all the final touches in time to meet the early check-in you requested. The cleaners take pride in making sure that the cabin is cleaned upon arrival. If something may have been missed, and the state of the house is ever not up to our high standards, please reach out to our 24-hour local Guest Contact so that the issues can be handled immediately
    As is evidenced by the many great reviews this homeowner goes above and beyond to create a memorable experience and we look forward to hosting many satisfied guests!

  • Very Relaxing


    Had an awesome stay. I recommend this place that wants one of the best views of the ocean and peacefulness.

    This place is a good escape. I would recommend they have more TP and paper towels as we had to procure additional. I also recommend better window covering for ocean side bedrooms. View in living room was fabulous
