Love Happy Talk
Happy talk is the perfect size for our family. It gives 6 adults and 6 grandchildren plenty of room. Pool and garden area are beautiful! Short walk to the beach!

Exceptionally clean, exceptionally friendly, and we LOVE staying there!
Excellent Vacation Home For Family & Friends Getaway!!!
Happy Talk is the perfect vacation home! Right on the beach, close to Seaside, right next to our favorite bike rental and across the street from several of our favorite eating spots! We vacation in the Seaside area every year with 2 other families and their kids, total people average 12-14, and this vacation home was the best suited for our group by far for us! There's plenty of room throughout the house, the home is very nicely decorated and has been kept in really good condition, very clean! The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, bathrooms had plenty of towels. All of the bedrooms were furnished wonderfully, beds were comfortable and there was plenty of storage so we could unpack and basically feel as though we were home!

We truly enjoyed our time in Happy Talk plan to reserved again next year for our friends summer vacation.
Love Happy Talk
Our family of 12 has enjoyed staying in Happy Talk for 4 family vacations! Works great for 3 families to live together. Nicely furnished, close to the beach, and pool in beautifully landscaped back yard!
Great as always!

Rivard does a great job of being sure everything is perfect. Follow up calls, attention to detail... they just do great!
Our Week at Happy Talk
Sandy And James
We have rented several homes from Rivard and have always been pleased. Happy Talk is our favorite! This was our 3rd time renting this home and we have never been disappointed! It is kept so clean I assumed the homeowners cleaned it but when we left our pillow there, I was told they would check with housekeeping and ship it to us! The location is perfect, the view is incredible and access to the beach is a breeze! We love the garden and the pool. It makes you feel like you have a home away from home and the great thing is, it is a beach home!!!!
Happy Talk
Pictures don't do Happy Talk justice. It was amazing everywhere you went. The owner has thought of everything you can imagine. Loved our time celebrating our 51st wedding anniversary with all our kids and grandkids.
