"Trip Report Land’s End Cabin # 15 Oceanside CA 4/12/15 – 4/17/15
Pre-trip communication was awesome! The Owner, Nathan, was very helpful. He took the time to answer my many emails and questions very quickly. He even made great suggestions about area events and services. He was available by phone always and even helped talk us in through the one way and beach traffic!
Arrival was smooth, Nathan was waiting in the parking lot of the complex and helped us get oriented. The cabin was unlocked and sparkling clean.
The garages are terrifyingly narrow, we did not rent a car (Uber all the way!) so did not have to deal with that. It was available to any guests we had. They seemed used to the small parking and did not have any problem. Nathan provided a street parking pass to those that had larger cars and SUVs.
While this rental was half of a duplex, there was never any noise from the other tenant. All the other guests and tenants were very friendly and helpful. It was a family environment, a few small children, even a family with a baby. Lots of older folks, no college party kids woohooo. Several guests had dogs, it was never a disturbance. The entire stay, including the weekend was quiet, peaceful and relaxing.
The cabin was nicely decorated with the usual starter supplies. Everything was clean and well maintained. There were plenty of kitchen supplies, I was able to cook a proper Sunday supper and serve four people with what was provided. The fridge and stove were newish and nice, it is an adjustment cooking with gas, be careful! There was a coffee maker, toaster and even a blender! Dishpan, Drainer and even a vase for flowers! Microwave is small but does the job. No dishwasher.
Tip # 1 – Bring/get paper plates, second day I thought, why am I doing dishes at the beach! Also a supply of ziplocks was very handy!
The sheets and towels were nice quality and freshly laundered. While the bathroom is small, it was modern and water pressure was fine. There were plenty of space heaters, each room had a ceiling fan. Nathan also provided a broom (used often!) and small mats to keep the sand at bay. Bed and futon were very comfortable and good quality. Nice TV, with extra HDMI cable! Standard cable service, wifi available.
Tip #2, Best wifi is on the communal deck. Otherwise spotty, as well as spotty phone reception (it’s the beach, didn’t see one cell tower!). Hang out on the deck for heavy web browsing or downloading. I did bring a Roku ("
