Why Eric Platt chose Oceanside

At the time, this was one of the few beachfront properties that were available for sale. It was and still is a Vintage Beachfront Property that retains that Vintage beachfront charm.

What makes this apartment unique

50 feet to the water. This unit is more private and secluded that other units.

This apartment is dated but you can't beat the location. It's obvious the owners have made a few upgrades but there are a few things a new coat of paint can't hide.

Also, it is close to the ocean but several blocks from an actual beach.

The location and the price are both amazing. It was a nice place overall.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The ramp down to the beach is actually about 130 feet from the French Doors of this unit. Historically, the City of Oceanside and the Army Corp of Engineers have replenished the sand on the beach in the spring, e.g. pumping sand from the harbor to the beach. However, due to budget cuts this hasn't happened for the last several years. They are planning on replenishing the sand on the beach by May 30, 2017. So after May 30th, the sandy beach will be (again) about 130 feet from the French Doors of this property.

Hey Guys,

The address was great but c'mon. I am glad I brought the soap from my hotel the night before. Three of the four lights in bathroom were out. The futon had no sheets, and no pillowcases for the pillows, at least none that I could find. I paid extra for a third person, but there wasn't even a chair for her to sit in (just the futon that the three of us shared.) If you spruced it up a bit(wouldn't take much), it would be a great spot. As it is Probably nobody's fault but after getting TV to work, most of the cable channels cut out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review - however, we are quite confused by it. We mention in all of our communication, e.g. 5 times in our emails and documentation and once in our telephone conversation - that if you need anything or if anything is not to your satisfaction - to contact our local people who take care of the property - as they only live 1.5 blocks away. Also this is in our contract - that you accepted!! That is - that if anything is not to your satisfaction you will immediately contact us - so that we can have it addressed/remedied. We advise all of our Vacationers that if you can't find anything to contact our local people via text or phone - as usually that item is in a different location than where you are looking. Re: Sheets and pillow cases - they were all there as well as hand and shower soap. Please contact us if there are any issues. We can't address any issues - if you don't communicate with our local support staff. Re: Paying extra for a 3rd person. That must be another property - as we don't charge extra for other people. We do speak with all of our Vacationers to make sure that it what we have - is a good fit for them. If you had let us know that you were bringing an extra person we would have guided you - if this was a good fit - or not. Sorry, that the experience was not what you expected. However, the support team and supplies are in place so that our Vacationers do not have this experiences like this. Finally to put this in perspective, over the past 10 years that we have been renting this property as a Vacation rental - this is the first communication - in any form - that there was not soap, sheets, pillowcases - or that any lights were burned out. Nobody else has reported a problem with the cable TV. If they do have a problem - they contact our local support staff - who get the issue fixed. Maybe our other 1000 Vacationers knew how to contact our support team via either their cell phone or the local landline that we provide so that we can do everything possible to ensure that our Vacationers have a good time at the beach!! By the way, your review was a complete contrast to the wonderful review that you sent me via email after you left - which I will now save. So, please clarify, was it "great" or "not so great".
