Incredible Sights & Sounds of the Ocean / Very Comfortable & Decorated 'Cottage Style' Within

  • 5 of 5

Hello from Minnesota! We just arrived back home this afternoon from a delightful 12 days in California with our eldest son. We enjoyed a fabulous 4 days at Sunset Cottage! Thank you for working us in at such short notice! Your property did not disappoint; it was very comfortable, warm & inviting, spacious and perfect for our stay in Oceanside. Our son enjoyed hours of reading and several naps in the sitting room near the hallway. We were amazed at all the pantry supplies and kitchenware available. The guys like to cook. The best part was the view of the ocean, from the 'great room' and balcony. This was particularly a blessing for me, since I'm not able to get around very easily. The views & colors were amazing! I've always felt that the gift of color is such a wonderful blessing from God. My husband would spend time combing the beach while I could enjoy from above. The sound of the surf was mesmerizing ... so we were thrilled we could hear the ocean, just as pronounced, in the bedroom with the side window open.

Amberjay greeted us with such a positive & sunny nature. She was beaming ear to ear while showing us the property and giving us some recommendations of nearby eateries and activities. We could tell she cared a lot about the cottage(s). What a nice treat she will be getting from you in June; she is very excited.

If we ever get back to this area, we will definitely rent here again. We kept envisioning our whole family here, reserving enough 'cottages' to accommodate all. God willing, we'll be back! So ... just want to thank you again. We very much enjoyed our time in Sunset Cottage and had quite the relaxing stay. (The Cottage Tea room provided a comfortable and private suite for our son...and cutely decorated .) ~ Jo

Incredible View and Relaxation Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by the beauty inside and out. The view was breathtaking, the décor is far beyond the usual, with small comforts and conveniences you wouldn't expect. Every time of day was amazing whether you were on the beach, or enjoying one of her many books throughout the house, preparing a meal in the well-stocked kitchen while looking out the kitchen window at the ocean and pier, or relaxing on the deck. Close to many great restaurants, such as Hello Betty's, and Ruby's. We will definitely book this again. The owner is amazing, kind, and her top priority is the satisfaction of her guests. I recommend this property 110% and can not wait to get back!

We loved Sunset Cottage and would rent again!!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I rented this darling cottage for her Easter Break. It was just what I needed. From start to finish, from finding this place to checking out was easy, easy easy. Terri is a lovely lady, although I've only emailed her and talked to her on the phone, I feel like we knew each other. The cottage was immaculate, darling décor, coffee on the balcony every morning, wine on the balcony at sunset. It was heaven. Walking distance to theaters, restaurants etc was great. Breakfast at Ruby's on the pier!! Awesome!!! I felt like it was my home away from home. I am definitely renting there again. Sunset Cottage is very cute and spacious. The pictures don't do it justice. Thank you Terri! <3

Not worth the hassle!

  • 1 of 5

The cottage is nice but, my experience with the property management and owner has been bad enough to motivate me to write a review warning future guest. I want to warn guest, be prepared for problems and no response from the owner. If you are considering another option I would recommend steering clear of the hassles this condo has created for me.

From the start this vacation rental provided poor customer service. My husband and I spent the first several hours dealing with issue with the electricity in the unit. We encountered several concerning things while wait for our condo to be ready for us:

1. We were told the electrician would be over quickly to check the problem. Okay not a big deal until over an hour and half later the electrician still had not tested the unit to determine the root problem. I called the phone number provided to call when checking in and got the property managers son because the manager left their phone at home. Great, I been waiting to hear from the manager with an update and she doesn’t even have a phone. My husband and I return to the condo since that is the only way to check on the electricity problem and we are told the electrician had not yet checked the unit and as soon as he is done getting a snow cone he would check it. What a great way to start a vacation and alarming customer service. It took over two and half hours for the electrician to finish and for our vacation to finally start.

2. While the electrician and property manager are working on the electricity they are walking in and out from a spare room that I could not lock. The room came off of the supply room/garage with a separate entrance. This made for an uncomfortable environment.

3. The property manager had her teenage son working with them and working to correct the electricity.

4. I left a message for Terri to express I concern with my customer service experience while checking in and requested a return call. I never did receive a return call from the owner.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t the only concerning thing I encountered during check-in. The property manager requested that we vacuum in order to get our security deposit back which would help them turn the room over faster for the next guests who were checking in the day we leave. Now we are told that the property management and other owner saw five guests on the balcony and so they charged us $300.00 of our security deposit. Also, the owner will require a $500.00 deposit even though the contrac

Owner's Response: This particular guest and her husband received the rate for 2 people but after check in, 3 other people arrived for her husbands birthday party which is a violation of the terms of the agreement and the rate she received. Because we are right on the beach, we have a no guest of guests policy. We want our guests to have total peace of mind that our building is locked at all times and our beach chairs, toys, beach level bathroom and laundry will be available to them when they want to use them. Victoria signed our agreement and read the clause in the initial email stating that our no guest policy fee is $100.00 per person per day. We visually saw 5 people on the deck and had to knock on the door to ask them to keep the noise down. The outlets can be problematic sometimes because the salty air on the metal in the outlets builds up and we have to replace them and that took us 2 hours. She checked in 2 hours early. If we would not have checked her in 2 hours early to be nice, we would have found the problem and had it fixed before her check in time at 4:00pm. I'm truly sorry this happened. I'm mortified that I have a bad review, but its for this very reason we make sure our guest policy is understood the best we are able. As for me not being available, I try very hard to be on call every day of the week and if I'm not on the other line, I'm available to answer my calls. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns, we'd love to have you.
