Imported furniture, a whale’s tail coffee table, and huge white pillars, automatic gas fireplace, and Bose stereo system with 200 CD player all add to the ambiance. The large kitchen features a side-by-side refrigerator, halogen high speed cooking center, dishwasher, microwave and drinking water system. Walls of glass surround the large dining area which overlooks the sea. The large upstairs veranda is equipped with a gas barbecue and is perfect for sunning or stargazing. The master bedroom, with wall to wall glass ocean views and king-size bed, features another cathedral brick domed ceiling.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we had a great vacation. The Good: 3 bedrooms with own bathroom; fourth "bedroom" had fold-out couch (not so good) but also had its own bathroom; great views, huge entry and living room area, mostly well-equipped kitchen, nice dining area with beautiful views, clean, beach front, heating worked great (on cold nights)- Not so good: overall "dated" furnishings; living room huge but not very user friendly (had a tile "coffee table" in shape of tale of whale; very nice but not very practical); not sufficient kitchen counter space; only one large TV in the 4th bedroom with not sufficient seating; most linens (sheets, pillows, etc) need replacements; no mop! One night it rained pretty hard and water seeped in various areas and had nothing to mop with-contacted Oceano via phone call and email (no answer on either one), had to use bath towels. Wi-fi available but weak; had to call Oceano to get password info (should be available upon arrival). Overall, I would recommend to a friend, but with reservations. I believe that there are probably better properties for the price in Las Conchas.

This house looks better in person than the pictures! The views are just amazing. The house is super spacious and afforded much privacy for my family! Cannot wait to go back. Thank you!!

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.

Reviewer Comments:

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!
