We found a house and it's perfect. We saw so many almost perfect houses it was getting overwhelming. I was getting super discouraged because either the location wasn't right or the price was to high or the house was to small... and then we found this house. It's all wood and glass, big kitchen, big living room, huge solid wood table, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms downstairs, and a loft upstairs with 2 additional bedrooms. We have a jungle backyard and the best part is that we have monkeys running on the power line by our balcony all day long. That is seriously why we got the house. That and the killer price. I can't really think too much about how low our rent is otherwise I'll never want to return to California.
It's a 5 minute walk to the kiddie beach and a 3 minute walk to the surf beach and a 1 minute walk to all the nice restaurants. We have 9 beds, 3 hammocks, and only 5 people. Seriously come visit.
I'll post more pictures after we deep clean and move in.
