Amazing! Wonderful experience! Very Clean!

  • 5 of 5

The place was in immaculate condition and really clean. My family and I stayed for 4 month and it was a home away from a home, especially for my two little kids. Would stay here in a heart beat again! Loved every minute of it. Also, Carole was really nice and amendable to any issues as well as our wishes ! 5/5 stars! Thank you

One of the best vacation rentals

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several houses now through VRBO and other websites. This is honestly one of the best houses we have stayed in. Everything has been updated, and redone and is very hip, clean, and modern. We only used one of the two bedrooms, but the bed was very comfortable. The backyard was one of the best we've ever had for our dogs. Really nice large area of really green grass which was really surprising due to all of the water issues in California. Lots of conveniences within walking distance including coffee shops, beach access, and several restaurants. Another big plus for people traveling with dogs is Delmar dog beach (off-leash) which is only a 20 minute drive away. We would definitely recommend this rental and will hopefully return ourselves sometime.

Second stay as great as the first!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this adorable home in May, 2016 and it was a no-brainer to return for our October visit to Oceanside. The house was immaculate again and we felt at home even more since it was our second visit. Our granddaughter now calls it "our house" since she feels so comfortable when we stay here on our visits with her. Thanks for providing us this comfortable home away from home for our precious times spent with our son and granddaughter.

This was the perfect spot for our family get away! The yard was spacious and grassy and made for a great play place for the kids and dogs. The home is updated and well kept and has nice modern decor. The beds are very comfortable. The closets are well stocked with sheets, blankets, towels and even a queen size air mattress. The location is perfect...close enough to get to all the excitement but far enough away to not have it disturb you. Nice beach access and playgrounds are within a 5 min drive and there was ample parking available. Carole was super friendly and helpful. I definitely hope to stay here the next time we're in town!

Oceanside Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in September 2016. The cottage is charming, clean, and comfortable. It has WiFi and two nice TVs. It has been updated and has a modern, stylish appearance without losing it's charm. The manager, Carole Butcher, was extremely responsive and fixed the very few small issues we had immediately. We would certainly stay here again. The location is good. The only thing you should know is that the cottage is only blocks from the ocean; however, when you get there it is rocky. You have to walk a ways to get to some beach.

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying at the cottage. It does look just like the pictures and is very comfortable and cozy. It's also very clean! The yard is lush and enjoyable and I grilled out every day. I brought my dog and we enjoyed walking around the neighborhood. Shady streets and very cute homes. It is close to the beach and lots of little restaurants great for coffee, snacks, lunch, etc. Even a brewery with great food!

I loved having all the doors and windows open during the day (clever sliding screens over the doors were great). I wasn't comfortable keeping them open while sleeping so I did need the A/C unit in one bedroom. It kept the room at a great temperature, but the other bedroom may have been a bit too warm. Maybe some ceiling fans would be helpful.

Carole was extremely friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this cottage!
