The place was in a safe location but not very much like described.
First we had to stay on hold with a representative from Vacasa as we could not get the keys from the lock box with the code provided to us. Quite annoying. We were told that we would have a designated parking spot, but they were blocked off for repair. Had to look around the development to park, Not convenient for loading and unloading. None of the 3 TVs in the apartment were operational and my husband is quite adept at technology. There was even a chair with a broken leg. Would not recommend this place.
Manager response:
Hi, Josette! The property manager has taken care of the parking area repairs, replaced the chair, and ensured the TV is working. Thank you!

Near Monarch and the beach about 1.25 miles but a nice easy path

Clean, cute little place for our recent vacation to SOCAL. Perfect for just our mother/daughter getaway! Plenty of space to relax in, in a quiet neighborhood! I especially liked that it was a short drive to not only LA, but San Diego as well! We didn’t really mind that it was a bottom unit, as I’m glad we had access to the small, grassy, patio area in the back of the unit. But I could see where it could be a problem for those who have a hard time carrying luggage up and down two sets of stairs. Being on the bottom unit, it does get pretty dark in there, but we were gone most of the day, so it wasn’t really a big deal for us. Overall, it was a nice, clean condo and we enjoyed our stay, and would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in SOCAL.

Once we had reserved this vacation condo, I was in constant communication with the management team, VCASA. Over great experience and comfortable place to stay!

Location is perfect. We walked to the beach which was so nice. The neighborhood is beautiful. The place was so pretty and I loved just relaxing on the patio and reading.

Great place with a lot of character! The home was sparkling clean when we arrived. The notes from Vacasa on access were super helpful as it was a little confusing when you get there! Thanks for the great holiday stay, we cooked 3 meals a day and really enjoyed our time! If you read the reviews and know what you are getting and are okay with it, please pick this home! (Stairs can be hard for some, but wasn’t a problem for us and we had my elderly mother with us)

Comfortable, convenient, and cozy. Quick 15 minute walk (or quicker drive) to the beach. This was a great place.
Kathleen K. Sep 2019
The surroundings on property were very nice, however 2 of 3 spa tubs on property were not working.
The actual condo was clean and spacious, yet needs to be updated. Long draperies were everywhere, even in kitchen making the place very dark. Master bedroom looked like it was a separate unit & had a Murphy bed, and strange door at bathroom. Easy to check-in , good communication & beautiful location.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, Kathleen! We’re pleased to hear that our check-in process was easy, and that you enjoyed the location and surroundings of this lovely ground-floor beach home. We appreciate you bringing items to our attention that could use improvement, as we are always looking for ways to better each home. We’re sorry if the hot tubs were undergoing maintenance during your stay, and we’re happy to report that this work has been completed. We’ll pass your comments onto our management team regarding the curtains, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The location of this property was excellent for us. However, after speaking with Vacasa staff, we hope that the safety issue of a nearly impossible-to-open bathroom door (from the inside, and with NO way to open from the outside!) will be repaired before the next travelers arrive (as well as the broken flapper valve in one of the toilets). Also, at the time we booked this property, there was no alert that we'd have to take two flights of stairs to get to the lower level condo (we hope the listing will be updated after our complaint). This was a significant issue for our group of six friends, all in our late 60's and some with physical challenges. New to using VRBO and fiercely independent, I didn't refer back to our contract to call and get immediate repairs and/or a different rental property. Lesson learned. Lesson learned. However, someone surely had previously notified Vacasa and/or property owner of the needed repairs in the condo.
Manager response:
Thank you for making us aware of your concerns! This helps us improve for our future guests! We are updating the listing to show that this home will include stairs. We have also had the toilet fixed since your stay and are inspecting the bathroom door to get that fixed as well. Thank you for your feedback!
