VERY DISAPPOINTED...mislead totally by photos

  • 3 of 5

We thought we were very mislead by Junes photos on her property. There were two photos of a patio with grass facing the beach. This is what we expected. Instead we had a small deck which barely only accommodated 4 people. We come to the beach to enjoy the view of the ocean and listening to the waves at night....needless to say this was not the case !! You have to walk though the length of the property to get to beach...not a short walk.

I stressed the fact we wanted the beach bikes that were offered....they were old and rusty and the woman's bike tire was flat and we tried to pump the tire but it didn't hold the air. There was no DVD player as stated on her site....called June about both items and she said we could go to Walmart and buy a bike and she would reimburse us. I explained we could transport a bike in our car.

The unit was clean...but needs updating.

The upstairs unit must have been under repair...heard hammering and lots of noise late into the evening.

The grounds are beautiful and kept up very well. The location is prefect !!

Enjoyed many meals at the Harbor.

We have now looked at other units and the units we are looking at to rent in September are newly furnished with great views....all remodeled.

It has been more then 3 weeks and I still have not received my deposit back...June said she sent it 10 days ago and when I texted her yesterday she never responded....this has been our first bad experienced with VRBO.....just be aware of what you are renting.

Owner's Response: I was extremely disappointed to receive this renters review; especially since we had received two 5 star reviews from other guests who had stayed at our condo just days & weeks before her visit.When she complained about the location of our condo, I again told her that our unit is listed"Ocean View"(with marvelous views of the harbor, lagoon, village, sunsets & the white water breaking in the sand from our deck & partial views from inside the condo) not"Ocean Front"& that the photos she mentioned were of the entire complex as you look back at it from the sand. I also told her that our price for her rental was $642 for their six night stay (this amounts to $107/night) whereas any other one bedroom unit in the NCV complex that offered an ocean view or was ocean front was listed at a nightly rate of $115-$222/night (and many of these were not "cottage units" which are larger & more desirable than those in the 3 story buildings). She spoke about how far they had to walk to be on the beach & said she had to walk the whole length of the property. In actuality, the locked side gate is just over one building (I'm guessing about 150 feet from our condo).Open the gate and you're on the sand! Regarding the bikes, I apologize that the girls bike tire wasn't holding air. I have asked our housekeepers/maintenance staff to check the 2 bikes (which were brand new a little over a year ago) every single time a guest was due to check in and if they weren't in good order they were advised to buy new ones. I offered to bring a new bike which would have been closer to the end of their stay but if they wished to have it sooner I would reimburse them if they wished to pick one out and purchase it for their visit. She said their SUV was filled with supplies for her jewelry making business & they did not want to do that. Regarding the DVD player & many (about100) CDs were easily located & used by all of our other guests. I replied to her inquiry about it that it was in the living room TV cabinet next to the large screen TV. Also we have DVR's on both TV's. They left on 5/15; I mailed her uncashed security deposit check back on 5/28 (usually send it within 3 weeks) to her business(the only address she provided).Regarding furnishings all living room furniture was purchased 10/15; all new tile floors, bath &counters a few years ago. 50% of our guests return time & again because they love our cottage by the sea!

Nice Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 4 days here in April. We were anxious to get away from the Utah winter and head back to the promised land of Southern California! The condo was excellent and the grounds of the complex were perfect. The condo is close to the beach and we enjoyed exploring Oceanside. Lots of nice shops and restaurants. June has everything you could hope for at the condo. The check in / check out procedure is easy as can be. We even borrowed a couple of bikes and had a lot of fun riding along the beach. Only downside is it is close to the train tracks but it really wasn't anything we were bothered by. We had booked a hotel but changed our minds when we saw this property. It was definitely the right choice. We hope to be back soon!

Vacation at little cottage by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at cottage in oceanside, 9/15/15. I cant say enough wonderful things about our stay! June has totally outdone herself in having a well stock place, she was very attentive and helped us with anything we needed. The beautiful gardens through out the condo were truly amazing. The pool was very large and so beautiful at night. Within walking distance to the harbor for wonderful views and dining. The beach was right there, had surfing contest while we were there. We did not rent a car, used trains, bus, and uber, all worked out perfectly! Cant wait to return! Thanks again June, we are totally refreshed!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend June's cottage! We had such a wonderful time and the cottage is absolutely perfect. The location is right at the beach near the Harbor and Pier. We could enjoy the beach or walk to many places. The cottage is fully stocked with kitchen supplies, bedding, towels, beach supplies, and was very clean and safe. There are plenty of blankets and pillows as well. There is assigned parking in the garage and 24 hour security. My party was 4 girls and we felt very safe. The grounds are beautifully landscaped as well. The king bed was so comfortable and we used the chest bed which is a double and that was comfortable as well. This cottage is exactly what we were looking for! And June is so kind and helpful and will answer any questions you have. We plan on returning sometime this fall for another girls weekend. This cottage would be perfect for any age or interests considering it's location and accommodations. Thank you so much June for everything!!!
