When Does a Vacation Rental House Become a Home?

iscovery Beach House Exterior frontFrom the moment you enter the Discovery Beach House you’ll feel the difference. This is no ordinary vacation rental.

The well-traveled owners’ adventures have been featured in the Los Angeles Times, and are vividly illustrated in tribal artifacts, a floating photo gallery, custom-made art tiles, and hand painted sinks. Evelyn and David built the Discovery Beach House as their dream home. The love and passion they poured into it is evident everywhere.

Imagine rehabilitating orphan orangutans in Borneo, photographing mountain gorillas in Rwanda and pampering retired elephants at a sanctuary in Thailand. At every turn you’ll discover a new and fascinating element unique to this home – and to none other — anywhere in the world.

The Discovery Beach House has everything you need; beach towels, beach chairs, pool floats, a video library, family board games, a Barbecue grill, and a fully stocked kitchen with an array of spices and condiments, just like home.
