White Collar House in a Blue Collar Neighborhood
John and Linda (our hosts) are amazing. They were more than happy to greet and help us. The house is brand new and it is outstandingly beautiful with tremendous attention to detail. We stayed for 2 weeks during covid and cooked almost every meal in the amazing kitchen. We worked during our stay and the WiFi was able to accomodate all 4 of us. The beds are comfortable and the sheets and towels are top notch. The backyard was incredible . . . my daughter danced and I did yoga and meditation daily out there. The ocean temperature was magnificent and we swam twice each day!! The neighborhood was a little surprising. One next door neighbor was delightful. The other neighbors were constantly yelling at their dogs, and it even woke us up in the middle of the night. Additionally, fireworks were set off nightly and that also was shocking. The beach is not appropriate for small children due to how rocky it is. Water shoes are a MUST due to the rocks. Finally, the neighborhood roosters were surprising at first, but we got used to them and learned of their Hawaiian origins. I am trying to be as honest as possible in the review, and I would give the experience a 4.5 stars out of 5. We loved the visit and we would return to John and Linda's magical house. I just wish I knew about the neighborhood before hand so I was prepared.
