Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at the beach last week. We all had fun time and appreciate all you did to help make our stay a fun time. The pack and play and the stroller worked well and got a lot of use. The home was very comfortable and the beach area was a great treat. We did get to enjoy the dolphins and sunsets regularly.



Thanks again!

Peace be with you,

It is a great house for families with young children!

  • 4 of 5

We loved having the private beach area so the kids could play safely away from the waves, but as soon as they were ready to get in the water, they could climb down over the rocks. Plenty of dining area and dishes for our large group.

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our family vacation, we loved this beach house, there was plenty of rooms, and space. It was everything we wanted and more. The house was very clean, the beds were nice, plenty of bathrooms. We had ages from 1 to 53, there was not one complaint. We all said over and over how much we loved this place. We are planning to stay here again in a year.

Kim was so great to work with, they live a couple of doors down, we never saw or heard from them, in fact we walked down to meet them and thank them, however she was out of town, we talked to her husband, he was as nice as they come!

If you want a great beach house, great location, this place fits them all. This has been the best place we have rented from on VRBO! it's PERFECT!!!!!

The property is beautiful & well located (train station, pier, harbor are nearby).

  • 5 of 5

My friends (we were a party of 12) & I met in Oceanside for a relaxing birthday weekend. The property was clean & lived up to the photographs posted on VRBO's website. Convenient to shopping, restaurants, the transit center & local pubs (and quite spacious), it would make a perfect hub for a family vacation or retreat with friends. The backyard is quite large & the private access to the beach appreciated (pay attention to tides). Be prepared to leave a bit earlier than posted on your departure date...housekeeping is prompt.

A Fantastic House!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were here to celebrate my husbands 65th birthday and our 25th anniversary. This house met all our expectations. There were 7 adults and we fit there with plenty of room to spare. It was sooo very clean which made us girls very happy. It had plenty of dishes, silverwear etc. The only thing would have been a few more hand towels for the bathrooms. The firepit was fabulous. Kim was very helpful in hooking us up with people for firewood. We went out to eat a few times but we always wanted to get back to the house to sit relax and enjoy the absolutely georgeous views of the ocean. We spent a week there. I'm not sure which part of the trip was the best. Spending quality time with the people we love, or this most beautiful house. Believe me, if you rent this house you will see a little bit of heaven, we did. Thank you Kim for sharring your lovely home.

Spacious, 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms, great value!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in Oceanside, CA for nearly 2 decades at multiple beach houses we were very impressed with this place. It was nice have 2 separate living spaces, kitchens & many bathrooms that are often lacking in other beach houses. We felt like we got a great value for our money.

PROS: Large dining areas, multiple kitchens & living rooms, fire pit, private little sand area above the real beach, 2 driveway spots for parking, updated furniture inside & out, 2 washers & 2 dryers.

CONS: Painfully old mattresses that sunk like a trampoline, dirty main floor that was swept but not mopped (baby had black knees, feet & hands from crawling), A/C didn't work, the pocket doors in the master were jammed so there was no privacy in the bathroom, the concrete at the bottom of the outside staircase was very slippery when wet (grandma & 2 grandchildren slipped with injuries).

Trust me, having stayed at many beach houses in Oceanside, this place had tons of upside. All of the cons I listed are fixable, and despite those items, we had an awesome week at the beach!

Thanks!
