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.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was a perfect place to enjoy some extended family time over the Christmas break. We slept 11 people very comfortably. Beautiful views from the deck, the living room and even from the kitchen made our visit so special. The kitchen was well stocked with all the pots, pans and utensils we needed. We literally walked across the street and down to water's edge at low tide. At high tide, the water came right up to the rocks on the other side of the street. We enjoyed watching dolphins swimming down the coast. Lots of restaurants nearby and a movie theatre too. Our family called the downstairs "The Man Cave" because it is kind-of detached from the rest of the house (you have to enter through the garage). The teenage boys and some of the men enjoyed hanging out down there to watch movies and play games. We had some rain while there, so we had a few days where we mostly stayed inside. Even then, it was so wonderful to look at the ocean from the warmth of the living room. Colleen was a pleasure to work with and provided everything just as promised. Would definitely stay again!

The highlight of our trip!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with this house right on the water in Oceanside. The house was clean, well-kept, tastefully decorated, and even better, had an amazing view. Walking up the stairs and taking in the full ocean view offered in the living area was breathtaking. We all agreed that we would be perfectly content to sit out on the spacious balcony for our full 10 days and just take it all in. Of course, Oceanside and its environs also offered plenty of things to do, but we did try to make it back each evening for spectacular sunsets. If you like to be on the beach, this was only possible at low tide; at high tide, the water in front of the house came right up to the road. However, the beach widened closer to the pier, so even at high tide, you could easily walk to where there was still some beach left. There were always plenty of surfers to watch!

The house was well-equipped with everything we needed for our stay, including a hair dryer, washer and dryer, coffee maker and everything else we needed in the kitchen. Three and a half baths meant no waiting for our group of 9. The parking accommodated four small cars. It was also nice to have the hot tub. The downtown area of Oceanside is a quick 10 minute walk, and has much to offer, including the pier, restaurants, and the sunset market on Thursday evenings. Colleen was great about answering any questions before our trip, and we didn't need to contact her for a thing while we were there. My only suggestion would be to have an extra key or two, since the house accommodates so many people. We sometimes had four groups going in different directions, and had to pay close attention to who had each of the two keys.

If we ever head back to southern California, we would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it highly to others!

  • 5 of 5

Our Family had such a great week at this home and made many great memories!! It was a perfect home for our large family and a great location, close to everything!! We went for walks in the morning and in the evening along the beach, rollerblading, Streetfair, farmers market, bonfire on the beach, and the sunsets were amazing from the deck!!! It had everything we needed including toys for the kids, like sand toys, boogie boards, wetsuits, etc. We will be back as soon as we can!! Loved it ❤️ and hated to leave

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year staying in this beautiful beach house and each year gets better. You don’t need to move your car again once you get here because there is plenty to do right within walking distance of the house. The balcony deck is the perfect place to watch for dolphins, whales, and even the seals who like to play in the surf. The sunsets are gorgeous from there also and we planned our day to make sure we were back to the house to watch each one. The large open kitchen/living room gives even the person cooking and cleaning up to be a part of the activities. The kitchen is well appointed and includes plenty of pans including two large soup pots and a crockpot. We found we didn’t need anything else to make our meals.

The private outdoor hot tub is also a fun place for the group to gather and the outside shower really helps to keep the sand from getting into the house. The downstairs is more private as you do have to go through the garage, or enter through the outside. It was a nice place to go for a quiet nap or to have some private TV time. The internet is very fast and we didn’t have any problem even when we had several people on it at the same time. The garage is stocked with several beach chairs, many boogie boards and even a few wetsuits and sand toys.

The owners are wonderful to work with and are immediately responsive if there is any type of an issue. We had one of the fans not working and they brought another one to us within a matter of hours of when we called them. The home does have air conditioning and heating too if the weather calls for it. We prefer to have the nice ocean breeze just going through the house.

Our grandchildren call this their own private beach house, and we are already planning dates for next year.

Perfect for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 golfers who stayed for a week in February. The house was perfect and helped make our trip a huge success. There was plenty of rooms and bed space. The kitchen was well equipped and the and living areas was spacious and offered a beautiful view with a sunset every evening. The owners were very responsive to a couple of needs, very friendly and accommodating to our large group. I would highly recommend this property.
