This place is a beautiful location in Oceanside. Perfect place to take my family including my toddler. Literal 3 minute walk outside to the beach. The grounds are immaculate and super pretty. Large pool. The fish were super fun for my toddler, and feeding them was great. Several of the elevators on the complex were malfunctioning and I heard many residents verbalizing frustration about that. The walk to the little shops is beautiful and the food close by was awesome!! I would definitely stay in the area again.
My only frustration came with the online listing. The listing (at the time of booking) showed the condo had AC. I have screen shots validating this. Upon arrival, there were two fans, with an additional fan not working. Confused, I reopened the listing on VRBO, and validated that the condo accommodations showed AC. I contacted the owner, and she promptly responded that the condo had 3 fans, and that there was no AC, all of which “was explained in the listing”. I went back and looked again, and the LISTING WAS CHANGED TO NOT HAVING AC!!!! This was literally all after talking with her. I am glad I have the screenshots to show this after further managing the issue with vrbo. This was completely dishonest and I was shocked. She did offer a refund, but the thought of changing locations, with tired family members, having bags of groceries, and at the last minute was horrendous. We stayed, and made the best of it.
The condo itself was mostly clean, but the carpet was aged, the shower head in the bathroom is super short (almost had to duck to stand under it, and we’re average height), the faucets in the shower need maintenance because when you turned them the metal backings weren’t stable. The bathroom also seemed to be slanted, you felt like you stood on an uneven slant during showers.
Would I book with her again? No, I hate dishonesty. Would I stay in the area again? Absolutely.
I also understand that Having AC on the coast is often uncommon, but that is also a big reason we chose to book her condo because the listing offered AC.
The condo does have awesome beach toys, chairs, beach towels, dishes, utensils, and a nice dishwasher. If you’re aware of what is being (honestly) offered then there won’t be surprises. However, we were mislead by the listing, and were not treated honestly when the issue was addressed.
Visit Oceanside, it’s beautiful!
Amber, my wife and I apologize for this misunderstanding on our listing as providing Air Conditioning. We never were intentional in misleading you or anyone viewing our listing. When you brought this to my attention I contacted HomeAway immediately to resolve the listing with correct wording of the three fans. We did offer you a complete 100% refund with rental fees paid, taxes, cleaning and the service fee paid to HomeAway as soon as you expressed your unhappiness. We offer everyone staying at our beach condo this same 100% satisfaction gaurantee. As you read other reviews you will see nearly all give us a 5 star rating. When you made the decision to stay for the dates booked we made the assumption, our mistake, that you were pleased with the accommodations, even with our offer to drop another fan off the next morning. We do our best to provide a safe, clean and well equipped beach condo for the family. Again, I apologize for this unfortunate miscommunication, we will strive to provide everyone an affordable, clean and well equipped beach condo to all who stay at our beach condo and make sure our listing is correctly worded to reflect this.

Amazing vacation experience
Sharon and Gary are amazing hosts. We rented this condo week of July 27, the appointment was very clean, the beds were soft, clean and well positioned, the kitchen and the entertainment appliances worked perfectly. We also made use of the cable and TV setups in both rooms, DVDs, the beach chairs and the beach toys - the entire stay was very relaxing and we made lots of wonderful memories. The welcome wine bottle and chocolate was a very nice touch as well - thank you! The way your apartment is offered for rent is absolutely perfect. We would love to stay here again next time. Thank you very much Sharon and Gary for helping us make lifelong memories on our summer vacation.
We had a wonderful time vacationing at this condo. It really felt like home as it had all the necessities for our stay, and more! It is also a child friendly condo, with high chair, playpen, games, and beach toys included. Condo is located in a quiet building with nice ocean view to watch sunsets. Owners always responded to my requests promptly. Would love to stay here again!
We have stayed at 3 different condos in NCV over the past 4 years. This was the best so far. Nice view and clean. One of the beach chairs was broken and owner replaced next day.
Great beach property
We rented this property for the 4th of July week and were not disappointed. The condo was just as pictured, the surrounding grounds were beautiful. All we had to do was walk out the gate and within 5 minutes we were enjoying the beach. It is within walking distance of all the harbor has to offer and also downtown Oceanside with all its great restaurants. We also were surprised to see a wonderful fireworks display from Camp Pendleton’s Del Mar Beach! Great property, great location, great vacation!
We are so happy you had a wonderful time at our place. The fireworks were a great bonus. Thank you for taking such great care of our home!
Beautiful grounds, facilities, view. 2 thumbs up, it's all I have.

Thank you Louis and we are so happy you enjoyed . You took such great care of our home!
