Reviewer Comments:

We stayed for 4 nights with three adults and three kids. The home was clean and in good condition. Unfortunately we discovered when we arrived we did not have access to the washer and dryer, and there was no WiFi. This is something we were accustomed to with other rentals in the area. Otherwise the stay went well, and the office was nice enough to give us a fresh set of towels after a couple nights.

The rental was nice. It was clean and it accommodated our party. The issue is that I have not received my deposit back. We rented in June 2016 and we were told our deposit would be refunded within 2 weeks. I called Oceano the beginning of August and spoke to Jose who said he would release my deposit $250 and it should be in my account within 5 business days. We are now in the month of September and still no deposit. I have called Oceano Beach Home Rentals and their phone rings without any answer. I'm shocked that I have to chase my deposit when this has never happened before. I hope to hear from Oceano soon and they refund my deposit since we left the home clean and kept our end of the bargain. I know they have had a number of staff changes and I hope this was an error since we have had great experiences in the past renting from Oceano.

Reviewer Comments:

We really liked the house and we are sure coming back next year! I read the reviews and was kind of scared of people said, but the beach is not that far from the house, yeah you have to walk a little bit to get down to the beach it was not a problem! The "4th room" with the sofa bed was not as bad, the people who slept there didn't complain about it at all, plus the view is awesome to weak up too. The property was clean, we always had water even tho they warned us about. It did have a good sound system but i would off wished it was upgraded to connect a an AUX cable or connect through bluetooth. But other then that we loved the location and the house! We are sure coming back pretty soon!

The impression if the property was good. The house looks nice on the pictures.

  • 2 of 5

My experience at whale of tale was not a good one at all. To start of the A/C did not work on te downstairs floor. The fourth bedroom is not really a bedroom it's a converted living room into a bedroom where the only TV in the house is there. There is no bed but rather a sofa bed. The house is infected with cockroaches LOTS of them. To get to the beach you have to go around a few bushes and rocks. It's not really a beachfront home. The dinning room had no light as we were never able to turn it on nor the patios. So they are a waste at night. We mentioned it to afew maintenance guys who came around while we were there and they only said someone else would come fix and never did. We ran out of water everyday we were there and were left without any water service for 5+ hours. Our overall experience at whale of a tale was bad and would difenetly not stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hello, Diana, it is a shame the house caused you so much dislike. The lights in the house have never been an issue, this house is rented a lot by big groups that come back each year. On our website oceano-rentals.com, the house does advertise the 4th bedroom as TV room / 4th bedroom. It is not our intention by false advertising. We have never heard an issue with roaches we will send the pest control company to inspect this although it's sprayed on a monthly basis. When you checked in we gave you the emergency telephone number on which you called several times and never mentioned the light situation. we would have gladly indicated how these turn on nor the lower A/c unit not functioning correctly. The water situation is very critical in town we mention to each and every renter about this issue and that they should try and save as much water as possible. We filled up the tank of all the homes on a daily basis which causes an extra effort of time and money for you renters to have a great time. We purchased water from the water trucks although the water service is off in the entire city due to maintenance. Upon checking out we asked how your stay was and the response was it was ok except for the water situation. If you would have mentioned all the rest we could have helped out and solved all issues since the start.
