An enjoyable time with extended family

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our whole family from 10 months to 87 years old.

The ocean surf breaking on the rocks in front on the house was incredible.

The inside and outside seating was enough for our visiting family as well.

Very clean and the baby high chair and pack and plays were nice.

The ocean was enjoyable and the sunsets great.

Missed a big sandy beach in front of the house.

The downstairs bedrooms were a bit disconnected from the living area. The traffic in front of the house required close attention to the smaller kids.

Great Space for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were eight adults. The house was very comfortable. A good kitchen for cooking. The bedrooms allowed for flexibililty of sleeping arrangements. The location is perfect. The house had everything we needed to enjoy the beach, the deck, the town.

Excellent beach house for families

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was wonderful! The kitchen was well stocked. There were lots of beach towels and toys/boogie boards. There's a high chair, pack and play and stair gate for babies. The rooms were all nice and welcoming. It's a short walk to the pier. It was so nice to be right on the ocean and hear the waves crash on the shore. Colleen was great to work with and answered texts quickly. This was a great place to stay! We will book here if we come to Oceanside again.

Nice big house right on the beach which is what our main criteria was.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the jacuzzi !! We loved being right on the ocean front !! Plenty of beach towels, boogie boards and even a couple of wet suits for the beach. Nice sized kitchen and living room. Good carpet and furniture . Plenty of space for a larger group or if you didn't have a large group only using the upstairs would be a good option. Loved having a deck to look out over the ocean and enjoy our coffee. Plenty of bathrooms for a lg group, so glad about that when everyone comes in from the water. Plenty of nice dishes ! A few things to know. Dishwasher is older doesn't work very well we just washed our sishes by hand and used the dishwasher as a drainer. House is older and doesn't have air conditoner but plenty of fans and windows to open available to circulate nice cool ocean air from outside . Good excuse to leave the doors and windows open to enjoy the ocean !! Beds are fair but I've yet to find a bed like mine at home. Still slept well just hearing the sound of the waves all night. Everything about the house feels older but painted and fixed to work good. No light outside on deck so it was hard to see the food grilling . If I would have known I would have brought a camping lamp. Nice deck chairs. So now the question is would I stay here again knowing all? Yes I would, with a lg group of 12 the most important things like big open space and plenty of bathrooms is a must and this house makes the grade for that. I would like to stay here next year and see what upgrades are made.

Perfect Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

The house was bright and cheery, right on the Strand. Although there is no sand, it is easy for experienced swimmers to make their way down the rocks and get right in and out of the water. A short walk up the street and there is plenty of sand access. Less than 1 mile to Ruby's on the pier and many other downtown Oceanside attractions. 4 parking spots and lots of beds make this a great family reunion retreat.

We went in April for our 18 year old daughter's first Ironman competition. The running route allowed us to see her four different times on her way to the finish line. It was a great spot for cheering on all the competitors.

The kitchen was extremely well equipped, and there were plenty of linens.

This is a great property. We hope to visit another time soon.

Owner's Response: Thankfully the city begins the 'sand replenishing' project end of April - should be sandy again by mid May. Sorry you visited after our stormiest winter in years. But, so glad you had a good time!! And what a memory to watch your daughter compete at such a level!
