When Does a Vacation Rental House Become a Home?
When You Feel Like You Belong.

Guest Sel Unite said it best, “The staff treated us like we were in our own home, like part of their family. We’ve never experienced anything like it.

From the moment you enter the Discovery Beach House you’ll feel the difference. Our staff makes you feel like family because they are family – related through marriage.

This beachfront villa 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.

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

Let your imagination run wild in front of the floating photo gallery. What would it feel like to rehabilitate orphan orangutans in Borneo? Can you see yourself photographing mountain gorillas in Rwanda? What about pampering retired elephants at a sanctuary in Thailand? Evelyn and David have done all of this and more. At every turn you’ll discover a new and fascinating element unique to this home—and to none other—anywhere in the world.
