We sat for hours on the couch looking out over the crashing ocean, spotting whales and even a glimpse of two eagles. The house is comfortable and well equipped. The management company is professional and well organized. Someone comes out and meets with you when you check in so you can go over everything and make sure all is in order.
A few small nitpicks. The gas grill is old and does not work reliably (the tubes and burner ports need a serious cleaning or replacement). All but one of the nonstick pans should really be replaced, too. There was no broiler pan, which made the lack of a good gas grill problematic.
You will hear the ocean, but you will also hear occasional traffic noise from the highway, even with the windows closed.
All in all though, this is an excellent rental and we would certainly stay here again.
