About Carrie Mahlum

We live in Clovis, Ca. My husband Steve and I have four kids and love to travel to the beach whenever time permits. This is our second home and we love to share it with others for their enjoyment.

Carrie Mahlum purchased this condo in 2002

Why Carrie Mahlum chose Central Coast California

We purchased this home in order to give ourselves somewhere to take the kids on vacation.

What makes this condo unique

We love that this home is large enough that we all have our own space. We also love that it sits on the beach with full ocean views.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My mother recently rented your home in California and we went with her on the vacation. I first want to say that you have an amazingly beautiful home. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. My husband and I had the king size bed and we're wondering what mattress topper you have on it? We have never slept so sound and comfortable before. I would be very grateful if you could let me know.

Again thank you so much for allowing us to spend our vacation in your home.

Beautiful, spacious, very comfortable home. More than we could have hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 women some family, some very close family friends, that were desperately needing to get away from the craziness and hardships of life. We honestly could not have found a more accommodating place to relax, and rejuvenate. From the second we walked in and saw the gorgeous wall to wall view of the ocean waves, we knew our stay was going to be fabulous! There was so much room in every area of the house that we were able to visit with each other no matter what we were doing. We were able to cook together, play games, all sit down at the same table and share meals together. The beds were very comfortable. I slept on one of the bunk beds and was pleasantly surprised with how comfortable the mattress was. All the beds, couches, and chairs were very comfortable. The two patios were great to sit at and soak in the warm sun without having sand blown in your face. Some of us even got a nap out there! The owner was very helpful with quick responses and lots of info on how things worked. We have decided this will be our go to stay from now on!

Great location and thats it!

  • 2 of 5

This property has a great location. I would recommend bring ALL your own bedding and pillows. I did address this with the owner. Many of the sheets had actual holes in them, pillows all old and stained (gross), she did have her cleaning person come and take a couple new pillows out of the storage closet and some sheets that didn't have holes, but all bedding is very old. I actually took a pillowcase off a pillow and it shredded in my hands. I don't think the master bedroom comforter has ever been washed and there is no way it can be washed in between guest staying there. All the beds were extremely old and uncomfortable. There was old food left on the grill, which we threw away. We spent a good hour cleaning the windows and patio furniture when we 1st arrived. Bring a bottle of bleach for the master bedroom shower. I addressed these issues with the owner, she knows my disappointment. I am only writing this review because for the price, I would recommend requesting a tour before renting, it is an extremely dated property. I wish I had toured the property before renting.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately for us, you were the worst complainer in my 14 years of renting our home. I'm sure you just wanted some sort of discount/refund as you probably do this all the time. We replaced ALL the pillows with new ones for you. We replaced every sheet that you didn't like. We bought you new hangers. We addressed every concern you had. Some people you just can't make happy.

Lovely home with great views!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spend a week at this very nice and spacious home on the Oceano Dunes. The beach is literally right out the back door and the views are spectacular. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would definitely return for another stay.

Spacious Ocean Front Property

  • 5 of 5

A group of 11 of us women stayed at this beautiful home for the weekend. Prior to arrival, the home owner was very informative and prompt with responses. This house is even more spacious than it appears in pictures and everything we could possibly need could be found in the cupboards and rooms. There are stairs from the back balcony straight to the beach and the beach traffic was not an issue. The master bedroom was very large and the attached balcony allowed ocean waves to lull us to sleep. I am so glad that we chose this property and will definitely reserve again if we have a large group! It made for a fabulous weekend!

We had a family get together four siblings and spouses. We had plenty of room to spread out. The rooms are very large. We all thought much larger compare to pictures on website. It was nice to have two family rooms. There were board games and puzzles too. There was plenty of seating inside and outside. The owners were very responsive if we had any questions. We loved being able to walk to the beach and you can hear the ocean waves while you are inside the house. We would definitely stay again.
