My wife, small son and I stayed her for 3 months. We had a fantastic experience and could not have been happier. House was perfect for us, you could open all the windows and get the cross breeze through the whole house. Coming in the front gate you are welcomed by a sweet garden and fountain, everything was coming into bloom while we were there. There is a large galley kitchen looking out to the large dining room, and the deck and the fantastic view. The living room was a good size with a lovely fireplace and TV. The two bedrooms suited us very well, the master bedroom was a very comfortable size with tons of storage and the main bathroom was well appointed and a generous size. The second bed room was slightly smaller than the master but has an en-suite full bath.
The deck...that was something else, the kitchen and the master bedroom both open out to it, via french doors. very spacious, great furniture, tons of seating (sectional couch and dining table, both with large umbrellas.) and a fantastic grille. The view was to die for, to the east you have the ocean and to the west you had the hills. I would go out there every morning and every evening. My wife and son spent many days relaxing and playing in the sun. The stars at night were amazing and so clear.
There is an apartment below with a lovely garden and fountain and with courteous neighbors. The neighborhood is fantastic, lovely walks, great architecture, quiet, El Encanto is just up the hill. The house is perched on the hill, but the location was perfect for us, the right distance from the busyness of down town, 5 min away by car.
Kelly, the house owner was great, sweet and friendly, if we needed anything or if anything went wrong she addressed it immediately.
We highly recommend this house and I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
