Family Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a 3 night stay at this beautiful oceanfront location! We stayed in the one bedroom unit upstairs with a shared deck. Unit #5. Our two kids shared the sleeper sofa in the living room and it worked out great! The unit was clean, had plenty of towels and cookware. We used the Walmart Market close by to stock up on groceries for meals at home. When the power went out across the entire Strand, the gas stove was a life-saver! The owner even brought in candles and kind words during this "dark" time! We ate dinner almost every night on the deck, watching the sun go down! There was an ample amount of beach toys, boogie boards, chairs and umbrellas for our use, any time of day! The convenient access to the beach is worth every single penny! Ruby's on the Pier was an easy walk, playgrounds were close and I enjoyed a nice running path right along the beach and across Pacific street every morning! Our kids were devastated that we had to come home! Such a great time! We will definitely be recommending this property to friends and family!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Oceanside was fabulous! We stayed upstairs in one of the one-bedroom apartments. The beach was literally steps from our room. The apartment was fresh and clean. It had everything we needed for our stay. There was enough storage that we could but our things away and not worry about tripping over suitcases. There are plenty of places to eat out but we chose to buy food at the local Walmart market and cook our meals. There is a gas grill available as well. Parking is tight so be prepared. Tammy is quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Take surf lessons, ride boogie boards or spend hours watching the kids play in the sand the choice is yours. We will definitely return!

Oceanside Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this unit several times and have always been quite pleased with the property and all people involved in the care of the property. The Owner keeps everything well maintained and it's always clean, I don't think there is anything else You need in a vacation rental on the beach. If You are open to meeting new People, this is a great location to do so and the locals are fantastic, I have never had a bad time here. If You are of good health, You can walk to everything You need and the Sunset Market is every Thursday evening and should be a must on Your list of things to do, can't imagine staying anywhere else on the strand!

Perfect Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We Stayed in the studio closest to the beach. I cannot express how nice and helpful the owners are. Very quick and responsive. Owners made this trip extra special. I was initially concerned about no a/c but there is a whole house fan the does a superb job, within minutes, of cooling the place down. The unit itself has modern and updated finishes throughout and you can tell great expense and care was taken to create a warm and welcoming environment. The sound of the waves crashing against the shore will lull you to sleep. Sometimes you see pictures on VRBO and Arrive and realize there were special angles and tricks used... This place is even better than the pictures and is truly steps from the beach. The owners have thought of everything! They have a huge assortment of beach amenities from wet suits, boards, chairs and beach toys for the kids. Private assigned parking. Kitchen had everything we needed for meals/snacks on the deck watching the sunset. Absolutely beautiful, serene, and peaceful. Highly Recommend

Owner's Response: A heartfelt thank you for the kind review and your thoughtfulness in writing it. It was really nice to meet you and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay - that's what makes all the effort of running a vacation rental gratifying -- having people enjoy it. Hope to see you again.

Great views and friendly folk

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Oceanside and everything turned out even better than we expected. We stayed in the one bedroom suite that has been newly renovated. It was so clean and comfy. I enjoyed cooking on the gas range or using the family style BBQ. We spent many evenings on the deck watching the surfers riding the waves while the sun set. This unit has a lovely private back verandah with a beautiful succulent garden. You are right in the thick of things and can walk to many activities. We loved Thursdays, which are market days with a morning and evening market. The first Tuesday of each month is an Arts walk where all the museums are open free of charge. The whole place is pretty pet friendly and our dog also enjoyed the holiday. Many of the nearby restaurant patios allow you to bring your dog too! Early on in our visit we went to the California Welcome Centre and the ladies there are able to tell you about nearby attractions that will be in tuned to your tastes. We went on many walks, to the flower fields in Carlsbad, the dog beach and the music makers museum. Other guests we met there enjoyed golfing, taking surf lessons, hitting the restaurants and pubs nearby. It is pretty easy to go to San Diego or LA for day trips as well. We met people who went to Disney land, Lego Land and Sea World while they were there. Carlsbad has a high end discount mall that helped us get our retail therapy hit!

Tammy is a wonderful host and quickly responds to any request. We hope it isn't too long until we can visit again.

Right on the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the upstairs studio which had been recently renovated with an all new kitchen and bath and new tile throughout. An older property brought up to date with new appliances and granite counter tops. Not plush but clean and comfortable. Nice view of the surf and we slept like babies with a window open to hear the sounds of the sea while we slept. The area along the beach is well maintained with a beach police station and parks very nearby. The pier was nice to walk out on and the little fish take-out restaurant served good food at a reasonable price. Tammy is wonderful to work with and most responsive to even the smallest needs.
