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,

Great for large families with older kids

  • 4 of 5

This property worked out great for our two families! Kids ages 8-20 were able to enjoy the beach and make the walk to the pier easily. The large eating areas made it possible for all 9 of us to have dinner together and the kitchens were both well equipped. Great location with beautiful views.The only downfall for us was that there wasn't an interior stairwell connecting the upstairs and downstairs units. It would have made things a little easier with the younger kids at night, but we managed. Thank you for a great week at the beach!

Amazing beachfront getaway for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this beach home. It was clean, well equiped and has a great location. The beach was beautiful and steps away (literally) out the back door. Great communication with the manager and everything went perfectly.

This is a large place so there's room for the whole family. One thing that wasn't really clear from the description was the fact that it is a tri-level. Not a big deal but might be for disabled. There are two queen beds on the third level and one queen bed on the second level.

We will be back. It was that nice and that smooth.

One of our favourite holidays

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this house. The property was perfect for a family. We have 2 children (ages 8 and 1) and the grandparents came along as well. The beach is perfect. The house is relaxed and stocked with everything that you would need for the week. We loved the fire at night. Quiet area, which was a perfect feeling for a beach town with a great eating and a park within walking distance. All the convinces(shopping, costco, outlets, all close drive away). I can't wait to come back!!

Great view, great rental, great place for family of 10

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say, if you get an opportunity to rent this property, do it. It housed 10 of us (6 adults 4 kids) for a three generation family get-together. The layout was perfect, and the private beach for the family and kids to play on was also spot on. Direct beach access with a concrete set of stairs to the beach made it easy to get down to the water. Also, the central location in town made trips to the stores and restaurants only minutes by car, but were also very easy to walk to.

Kim was a responsive and excellent host. We had a couple minor issues (not even worth mentioning, really) and she or her handyman immediately responded to us.

The only constructive additions I would recommend is in the two bedrooms in the back of the home should have perhaps a small dresser each or perhaps end tables with drawers to hold your under garments so you don't have to use your suitcase.

All in all 5 out of 5 and would stay here again in the future.

Great location at a reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about this house is it’s great location. The back yard has an uninterrupted view of the Pacific Ocean, which made for some great sunsets and dolphin sightings. It is only a few stair steps down from the back yard to the beach. From the house, we could walk to restaurants and the pier (but not on the beach). There is a new Kombucha place right around the corner on Wisconsin Ave. Even though we only stayed in the basement portion of this house, it was nice to get exclusive use of the property. If you get a chance to stay in the upstairs, it is absolutely amazing. The house was clean, neat, and comfortable. The Kitchen was well equipped.

The communication with the owner was excellent. Kim responded in a timely manner to all my emails and phone calls.

A couple items to be aware of if you stay here:

The beach in this area has been mostly washed away, so long walks on the beach are not possible.

Also, the 9:00am check-out time put a real damper on the end of our stay. I have never seen such an early check-out time. Most of my group liked to get up at around 8:30 to relax and enjoy coffee and the awesome property, but the 9am checkout forced us to get up early and have an unpleasant and hectic morning.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us! Glad to report after the harsh Feb storms that removed a lot of sand, the new sand has been washing ashore all week. We probably got 12 feet of sand this week. Thanks again!

Stress Free Stay

  • 5 of 5

Going to the beach is supposed to be relaxing, and I couldn't imagine a more relaxing place than this beach house. My family and I went, and spent a perfect week there. The beach isn't very populated, so you have plenty of space to play out on the beach without all the crowds you get in San Diego and LA. Absolutely beautiful property, Kim is great to work with, and the town of Oceanside has some great breweries and restaurants now. Couldn't recommend it more.
