About the property

Charming Studio with 1 queen bed, 1 bathroom and kitchenette - Sleeps 1-2 People

Beautiful Oceanside, California studio apartment with a queen bed, kitchenette and 1 bathroom that sleeps 1-2 people. Decorated in a darling cottage style and very charming. Our building is right on the sand in Oceanside, CA. as they say, with only a 1-way frontage road that separates our building and the beach. We provide linens, towels and chairs for the beach, beach toys, a beach level private bath, storage, laundry, and a hose to rinse the sand before you enter the building. We are 4 blocks from downtown Oceanside where you’ll find coffee shops, restaurants, ice cream, sushi, steak houses, a movie theater, shopping and a farmers market on Thursdays. We are located 2 blocks from the pier where you can walk to Ruby's Restaurant for a ice cream shake. In the Summer months, surf lessons are provided by SoCal Surfing one building over, there are many concerts, crafts shows and evening movies on the beach next to the Oceanside pier and life guards are on duty during the day. There are several churches within walking distance, a beautiful grass park is one building over, and the Amtrak station is only 2 blocks away for a day trip to San Diego, Old Town-San Diego, Legoland, Coronado Island, Sea World, Seaport Village, Horton Plaza, or the San Diego Zoo. You could also travel north to Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm and Great America which are all about an hour away.

Cottage Tea Room is a darling 350 square foot studio just steps from the beach with a sweet sitting area, WiFi, TV/DVD, and kitchenette that includes a coffee pot, microwave, mini refrigerator, toaster oven and dishes. It has a very cute bistro table and chairs, full bath, and plantation shutters. Queen bed includes a Cloud9 3 inch Gel Mattress Topper. You might not have an ocean view but you can still hear the sound of the waves. This a great place to come for a restful and peaceful getaway.

Everything was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed here for our four year anniversary and we had an amazing stay in the Cottage Tea Room! The bed had a memory foam topper that made it feel like we were sleeping on a cloud, there was plenty of room to unpack and not feel crowded, and you could hear the waves crashing while you sleep at night! I usually have to sleep with a fan for white noise, so I was happy to see they had one stocked in the room. However, I didn't need it with how clearly we could hear the waves in our room! I felt very safe with the way they have all the tenants lock each door whenever they come or leave, and everything was very clean. It was steps from the beach which was very convenient not having to make a drive to the ocean each day! It was extremely affordable, we got the room for 5 nights at $69 a night. It is hard to find that sort of price for that sort of location! 5 stars to Sandy Beach Cottages, thank you for the lovely trip! 😊

Not a relaxing place to stay.

  • 3 of 5

Amberjay was nice, but the place was old and the bed was not comfortable. Seemed that the resposibilities of the renter far outweigh the responsibilties of the owner. I suggest a few less tea pots and a few more tea bags, maybe some sugar for your guests. A hairdryer should be in the unit, shampoo samples would be much appreciated. Good location but it was not a relaxing place to stay. Too many rules, not enough conveniences. The rental process was grueling.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry this guest feels this way. Our "Cottage Tea Room" is decorate in a vintage cottage style decor. Its very cute and beachy. The theme is tea, hence the vintage hand made tea cut quilt on the bed, and the tea cups and tea pots use as decoration. We have added a memory foam mattress topper to our bed to make it more luxurious. If the hair dryer we supply has been removed, just let us know we have extras. We do have a building rules page that each guest needs to agree with in order to stay with us. For example, we don't allow guests of guests in our building. Since we are right on the sand and we keep our building locked, only our guests staying with us have keys. This ensures a peaceful environment, and the comfort and safety for all our paying guests that we would not have if we let guests of guests come and go. We also ask that each guest take out their own trash and leave the unit tidy. Our rates are the lowest on the beach. We like to offer low rates for guests that would not otherwise be able to come and stay in such a prime location. For the offered low rates, we supply everything you would need in a kitchenette that is standard, plus beach towels, beach chairs, 2 rolls of TP and a hair dryer. We ask that you bring your own food and toiletries. Thank you so much for reading our response to this review! We would love to share our prime location with you, and for the most part, our guests love the quaint and charming Cottage Tea Room on the sand as we do. So, come stay with us!

Tea cottage:

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very cozy, clean and decorated in a feminine manner. The bed was comfortable and there was ample space to relax after returning from outside activities. You could hear the ocean waves breaking on the shore at night. Access to the beach was directly from the lower floor. Noise issues with neighbors in adjoining apartments was not noticeable or disruptive. Would stay there again1

Nearest Airport
40 Miles
San Diego California

Oceanside California is just north of San Diego about 40 miles between Camp Pendleton and Carlsbad, California. Our beaches are not only fantastic for surfing and boarding, the city keeps them very clean. We have life guard stations, surf camp and we're within walking distance of the pier, downtown, many restaurants, the movie theater and our own farmers market every Thursday both morning and evening. We're within an hour or so drive to Disneyland, Legoland, Sea World, Old Town San Diego, Seaport Village and several malls for the best shopping. Torrey Pines State Park is also a really beautiful location with views overlooking the most fantastic sunset next to our building of course.
