Beautiful stay on the Strand!

  • 5 of 5

Terri’s cottage is steps from the ocean and exactly what I was looking for in my last minute getaway. Oceanside never disappoints and the view from the balcony can’t be beat. Thank you Terri for your warm hospitality. Your place is beautiful. I look forward to returning very soon.

Can't get closer to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Great stay on the top floor of this building. Best views and great, easy access to the beach with all of the necessities needed....chairs, umbrellas, towels and boogie boards. Easy walking around Oceanside. Thursday night market was fantastic and only a few blocks away. Awesome that we had a parking pass, as we walked everywhere and only took the car to go explore Carlsbad (next city down the coast) and Solana Beach. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook a great meal...only wish there was a BBQ. That would have made it 5* for us. Overall great stay, and we would come back!

Owner's Response: We always appreciate a nice review. I WISH we could have a BBQ! Our insurance company won't let us have one with in 10 feet of our building. If you have a portable one you would like to bring however, you're most welcome to.

Beautiful View, Pricey

  • 4 of 5

The cottage we stayed in had an amazing view of the ocean with the wonderful sounds that go with it. It was somewhat tricky to get from our level (top floor) down to the beach. We usually found it easiest to go out the front door and down the public beach access. I was disappointed by all the fees in addition to the rent. and the list of rules was daunting. With such a large deposit required I wanted to make sure we got it all back. I was very disappointed by having to pay $25 per person for my granddaughter and daughter-in-law to visit us. We spent most of the 4 hours they were there on the beach. They were in the actual rental probably 30 minutes total. The rental itself is clean and well-maintained. The shower height is better suited to a short person, but it's doable. Janelle is a gem. She was very helpful and courteous and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend fellow travelers look closely at all the costs before booking.

Owner's Response: Sunset Cottage is our entire top floor unit and to get to the beach, you just go down the exterior stairs, enter our building and exit at the bottom of the stairs. Once you're at the beach level, you walk along side of our building, out the little gate and you're looking at the sand. We also offer a special discounted rate for 1-2 guests. These guests wanted the discount, but they also wanted to host guests one day. We have a no guest of guest policy because we are right on the sand. If we allowed our guests to invite their guests, we would be over run with people entering our building, using our amenities such as boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, etc. and we wouldn't have enough for our customers only. In this case, we allowed the guests to have 2 guests, and just charged an additional $25.00 per person. does provide a service and they charge extra fees for that service. There is a charge for using a credit card as well. You are welcome to pay through the site with an e- check if you would like to avoid the additional credit card fees. NO extra fee to pay by check. Thank you for reading our response, we'd love to have you. Come stay with us.

A little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sunset Cottage was amazing. From our arrival through out checkout, Janelle was helpful and attentive. She even made sure we got our car moved before the street sweeper arrived! The cottage itself is a lovely, welcoming little oasis from the "busy -ness" of the strand and exactly as pictured. It is cozy and comfortable, had everything we could have needed, and the views are unmatched! While walking up and down the strand, we didn't see another place we would have rather have been! We can't wait to return to Oceanside and hope the rates for Sunset Cottage continue to be affordable!!

Great place and awesome location with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during spring break and ventured to Disneyland and the San Diego zoo. This location was perfect as a home base while we toured Southern California. Oceanside beach isn't as good as other area beaches given the rocks, but for the value, we couldn't have asked for a better house or location!!
