About Alana Porter

Gary and Alana each started visiting the San Diego area as children and loved it so much that they chose it as their honeymoon location. Forty years later they still love to come spend wonderful beach days with children and grandchildren too. The purchase of this Beach House in 2005 was one of the best things they have done to create family togetherness in their now very large family. They decided in 2009 to share this house with others that might enjoy this same benefit--famliies spending great time together. Alana became the Property Manager and loves working with all their perspective guests and renters.

Why Alana Porter chose Oceanside

Gary and Alana thought this house was the perfect location for family fun , sun, and surf. They loved the view of the ocean from every floor of the house--the walled front patio, 2nd floor balcony and the 3rd floor view deck. Every bedroom also has an ocean view. The floor plan was wonderful. The combination of 1st floor openness between living room, family room, kitchen, and dining room along with the 2nd floor privacy of 3 bedroom suites give the house a great opportunity for family togetherness with a place to go when you need a little peace.

Luxury 3-story Beach House with spectacular ' Ocean View' deck.
average rating of 5.0 based on 25 reviews

Very nice piece of property, with a great location within 1/2 block of the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Porter town home. Very spacious and clean. Enough room to host our son and his young family with the 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Centrally located to many other beach towns - wonderful restaurants and drinking establishments, all within walking distance. We loved our time in Oceanside and will definitely return. The only small downside is the close proximity to the railroad tracks which runs late and then again very early. Not enough to keep us away, but to some may be a nuisance. Overall a great house and a wonderful trip....thank you

What a wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 children and 2 brought friends and my parents. House was amazing! We had coffee on the upper deck in the mornings enjoying the view of the Ocean. The table in the kitchen was perfect for all of us to enjoy meals together and for game night. Everyone had plenty of space and the kids enjoyed fishing on the pier and riding bikes. It was a short walk to the beach with everything we needed in the garage. Alana made us feel very welcome before we even got to the home. We recommend this place for any family and will definitely be back!!

Excellent Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at the excellent Porter Beach House. The house has absolutely everything a family needs to be comfortable. The location is perfect for easy access to the beach, pier, harbor, events, shops, and local eating establishments. The view from the Ocean View deck is magnificent. We had a wonderful time with the family and will return.

Another fabulous year at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoy each time we come to the Porter's Beach House! It is such a wonderful week! Spending time on the sand that is SO CLOSE- definitely walking distance- or in the breezy, comfortable house is our favorite way to vacation. Alana is extremely kind and helpful and quick to respond to any questions or needs.

Best Stay Ever

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay at the Beach House. It was wonderful to be able to have so many amenities for our use. The Beach House was very clean, well maintained, comfortable, roomy, and fit our needs perfectly. The owner "notes" helped us find everything we needed. The beach was a 5 minute walk and we came and went all day long. We really enjoyed the Street Market. Thank you for the use of the parking passes, bikes, belly boards, towels, washer and dryer, and the wonderful accommodations. We didn't want to leave and stayed until the last minute.

The Best.

  • 5 of 5

This is the best place to stay. I almost don't want to write about how wonderful it is- because it books up so fast I want to make sure there's a week (or more) for us every year!

This property is simply perfect. It is the cleanest beach house we or any of our friends have stayed at. It is perfectly stocked with all your beach, kitchen, and living needs plus more for luxury.

The BEDS are so comfortable! The rooms are so bright and breezy. You feel like you are on the beach even INSIDE the house!

We enjoy the beach the most- it's RIGHT there! But we always take time to eat at our favorite local restaurants (which are listed in detail in the "what to do" binder), walk down to the pier and bike ride to the harbor.

Alana is always available and so kind and professional.

We recommend this property to everyone we know! We have had many friends and family visit with us and they book their own week every year now too!

All types of personalities will enjoy this area. If you are a stay-at-home and enjoy the view type you only have to take the stairs to the Oceanview Deck and look in any direction. If you are an active let's get moving type you can chose any direction for a wonderful adventure. Go West just 1/2 block to the wonderful family friendly Oceanside Beach with it's Historic Pier. Walk 5 minutes South to the Oceanside Harbor to renting sail or electric boats, kayaks, or paddle boards. If your hungry this is also the place for elegant and casual ocean view restaurants. Travel a little further South to Theme Park attractions like Disney Land, Knotts Berry Farm and Universal Studios. This is also the direction for L.A., Hollywood and th Fashion district if you are looking for a little social fun. Take an Easterly turn (3 blocks) to the famous 101 Coast Highway and enjoy traveling down California's most memorable and well traveled road. Walk 8 minutes North to a 16 screen movie theater surrounded by lots of shopping and dinning. Travel 30 minutes further North is San Diego.
