He was the most gracious host and made sure everything was perfect for the duration of our stay! We celebrated our 10 year anniversary in this home and renewed our vows right on the sand outside the yard. It was gorgeous and perfect. The house is beautifully decorated and it doesn’t feel like a rental, it feels more like a home. We felt so comfortable during our stay. All of the amenities worked well and the cleanliness is bar none! Usually I get weirded out by rental furniture but I felt so comfortable here.

They basically gave me free months worth of Nespresso, which was greatly appreciated. They are quiet, you would never know they live there. The private patio makes it feel secluded and spacious.” – Casey

An example of her exemplary service was replying to any questions we had within minutes. We spent a month at her home and hated to leave. Especially fun for our family, was going back and forth from baby beach (only 5 houses away), to her patio for lunch and cards. The kayaks, bikes and jacuzzi were over the top! We had a lot drinks and found all the refrigerators to be a nice surprise. Grilling and watching the boats go by, was amazing! Sandi was incredible and her home is warm and inviting. We hated to leave, and hope to return one day!” – Cindy

Surf 2 Snow: Surf & Ski in ONE Day!

“There are very few places in the WORLD where you can surf and ski/snowboard in the SAME day – but this is exactly what we will do! Join me on an epic So-Cal adventure and connect with other nature-loving adventurers too. I will show you the beautiful feeling of riding a wave, and then take you to the snow to feel the similarity of riding water in a different form.”

https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/631285

Price: From $300 USD (12 hours)

Review: “I was able to knock off something for my bucket list and surf in the morning, then snowboard in the afternoon. It was great. All I had to do was show up. They had EVERYTHING ready for the surf lesson in the morning, we showered off and changed before hopping in the van for breakfast burritos on the drive up to the snow. After a little nap, woke up on the mountain ready to board. After a few hours of boarding, I settled in for a couple drinks at the bottom of the mountain before we piled back into the Sprinter van for the ride home. This was a TREMENDOUS value. The staff running the event were ALL super outgoing, helpful, and created a fun/ safe atmosphere for this event. Look forward to the next one and will be getting into more Wavehuggers events. OHHH- just remembered, we even got a small little gift bag with a Wavehuggers trucker hat I rock all the time.” – Beau
