Our initial impression was positive, but the propertie's description didn't really live up to the description given in the ad. Yes it is a beautiful rustic old family home with some beautiful classical pieces of furniture, but.................
If you do plan to rent it out in the future you need to change some of the following:
The main bedroom mattress is old and needs replacement.
The microwave broke 2 days into the vacation.
The various area mats/carpets needs a desperate deep clean or replacement - the were badly stained and soiled!
It is really isolated and does not have an ocean view!
A bit of a trek to less crowded beaches
There are no avocado trees remaining on the 1700 acre ranch (as advertised)
No hairdryer in any of the bathrooms.(As you would expect of the class establishment)
An electric kettle would definitely be an asset (for those who enjoy tea rather than coffee)
Be more specific in arrangements for garbage disposal.
On the positive side:
Access to the property and house super easy.
Great Internet and HD TV connection
Great solitude for time of R & R (if that is what you are seeking)
A great kitchen if you are willing to prepare all the meals during your vacation.
Lovely green lawn kept impeccable.
Fresh bed linen and towels as promised.
The old fridge is fine - still doing it's job.
Lovely art and great furnishings.
The market in Mesa was a life saver - great shopping and prices.
I would only recommend this property if the above recommendations were seriously taken into consideration.
