Steps from your car to drive to the public beach nearby... no bermuda beach access

  • 1 of 5

The stair case that used to access Bermuda Beach the last time we stayed in this location have washed away and it completely gated off. We found a news article from Decembed of last year about the washed away stairs almost 3 months before we actually stayed there. Thuy gave us a partial refund after negotiating and asking us what we though our beach access "was worth", considering the house and neighborhood. The most important thing about our booking was the beach access. The house itself has a bunch of damage, most of the blinds dont work anymore. It looked like theyd been cut and then tied off by someone else who was pissed about the beach access. Lots of issues that added up into an awful experience with a woman who didnt want to help or make it better. She just kept aaying the drive over to dog beach, the oublic beach near by. Just ridiculous. And she still hasnt changed her listing stating its proximity to the beach, even though she had made it sound like she had no idea that the access was down. Dont let this woman fool you she knows that you cant access bermuda beach anymore. The neighborhood is great but i was looking in sunset cliffs from the beginning, her house isnt a particularly good location without her personal access. Its been 2 weeks and even though the partial refund was promised (by mail with a check... even though we paid by card) we still havent gotten it.

Overall just find a better house with better access, unless you dont have a problem getting sand and saltwater in your car.

The home was very comfortable, well-equipped and ideally located.

  • 4 of 5

My entire family enjoyed our stay at the jcottage. It's a fantastic location just a few hundred feet from sunset cliffs and a short walk to the beaches, shops, bars and restaurants.

The only concern I had was that the picture of the home on VRBO gives a clear impression that it's a single on a private property with no adjacent homes. It was in fact one home in a string of four homes immediately adjacent to three identical homes.

perfect family get away

  • 5 of 5

We arrived early for our rental and it was available which was nice after the 30 hour car ride. There are multiple rentals in one spot and more pictures need to be shown. Each house is set up the same I'm sure, but I was quite confused at first. The owner was quick with responding with any problems we had and the house was equipped with everything including shampoo and conditioner. The road is very busy in front of the house but the back yard is fenced in. There is a local restaurant next door that is affordable as well as a gas station. The business district is not far great shopping and food. We especially enjoyed the donut shop, that was a short walk from the house. I would most definitely stay here again.

The cottage was charming and completely adequate for two couples.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Thuy's Ocean Beach Cottage. The house was clean and well-equipped for 2 couples, with such thoughtful touches as including 4 bath towels and 4 extra large beach towels. We traveled with our dog and the house was perfect for him, with its concrete floors and leather couches. We ate at the farmer's market one night, in the city one night, and had Indian take-out from Thuy's recommended list the last night. We did breakfast in the cottage every day.

The location was very nice, being close to everything but not in the middle of it all. We jogged along the coastal road/cliffs one day, and rode our bikes along the bike trail another. Our only disappointment was that the access to the beach was closed off due to the stairs being in disrepair. So to get to the beach we had to load up in the car. But it was a small price to pay to have our little haven to retreat home to at night. We did walk one block away and watch the sunset from a walkway along the cliffs, which was very nice.

A really fun part of the trip for us was taking our Springer Spaniel pup to Dog Beach - he had never seen the ocean before, much less played in it with dozens of other dogs all off leashes! That wore him out to the point that he slept all day. Loved having access to the washer and dryer. And there's a little market right across the street if you forget anything. Plenty of hot water with 4 of us taking showers.

My only recommendations for Thuy would be: 4 wineglasses would have been nice (there were only 2). And one or two small hand towels in the bathroom - we used one of the kitchen towels. It would also be handy to have a small dresser or table in the second bedroom - we improvised. Other than that, we had everything we needed! Thanks for a great beach getaway!

Not what expected

  • 2 of 5

Pro's -

Communicating with management. Thuy is professional, responsive, and easy to work with.

Location - if Ocean Beach is your thing

Con's -

Not sure if this is due to several of similar rentals on the same property (think triplex-like setting) and we were given a different property, but the rental shown on and the amenities mentioned on the listing did not match what we received. The sleeping arrangements differed slightly, and although

set up slept the same number of guests, several guests had to share beds. Kitchen, cleaning supplies, and towels not fully stocked. No hair dryer

(all female guests saved packing one in our carry-on, specifically because the listing said there would be one), no ironing board.

Towels (although brand new) and quilt for pull out couch bed were not washed/cleaned. Quilt very stinky. If a house allows pets, all bedding, etc

should be washed after each stay. No laundry detergent either. Floor was dirty - didn't appear even swept. We had to keep flip flops on. Note - I have a high standard for cleanliness, but all guests felt the same about these issues.

Worst part - Several large cockroaches (identified as Oriental cockroaches) were found in the living area (where one of us had to sleep) when we returned from a late night. After accessing if there was rotten food and noting there wasn't anything known to attract them necessarily to the inside of the house, I found the front door has a large opening at the bottom allowing pests to enter. Also, made sense why the road out front seemed so loud. Cockroaches are super fast - I spent the next hour hunting them down to kill and toss outside. Sleeping that night in the stinky couch pull out was not uncomfortable wondering how many more would come through under the door.

Management was quick to respond to my complaints with a mention to notify the owners of these issue and have them corrected - which only helps future guest at least. Also mentioned was making a formal complaint on our behalf with the possibility of some refund. I have yet to hear back regarding a partial refund. Hopefully your stay will be better as I think for a couple - maybe two couples (small living quarters), this could be a decent place to stay.

I will definitely be returning :-)

  • 5 of 5

Thuy was kind and hospitable. She made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for the dutation of our stay. The house was a perfect size for two couples. Down the street was a beautiful private beach that had an amazing view and just a short walk up the street were the beautiful sunset cliffs. It was the best vacation ive had in a long time. I will definitely be returning in the future.
