Why Oceanside vacation rentals. chose Northern Coast

I love this property because of the quiet area it is in. Sometimes you just want to get away from it all and this home will definitely make you feel like you did. Only a 1 and 1/2 blocks off the beach it is nothing to walk to the beach from there

What makes this house unique

Peace and quiet


Car: not necessary

Big blue is located in a quiet neighborhood. Not a lot of traffic and the back deck makes you feel like you are in your own world. Close enough to the beach to walk and far enough from the hustle and bustle of down town. You will enjoy the serenity this home offers.

Cozy, but invaded by racoon

  • 3 of 5

We stayed 6/6 to 6/11/17. This cozy home is about 4 blocks from the North Beach parking lot on a quiet dead end street. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Saturday evening our s'mores party on the back deck and fire pit was invaded and ruined by an invasive large racoon that would not be scared away. The master bed's mattress was not comfortable to our liking. The barbecue is old, and briquets and lighter fluid were not provided. We used the fire pit (during the day time) successfully to grill steaks. We enjoyed the beach/Americana decor theme. Note you can book this directly through Oceanside Rentals and avoid getting charged the vrbo finders fee. Oceanside Rentals handles all the details of the rental, not vrbo.

Owner's Response: Hi Inmans, Thank you for writing a review of the blue heron. The house has just been supplied with new carpet and flooring all around. It did make it even more beautiful. I am sorry about the raccoon. they usually don't do what we tell them to either. I will let the owners know about the mattress and thanks again for the promo. Katy

A great Thanksgiving get away

  • 4 of 5

This house had lots of space for the entire family. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, even cooked a turkey with all the trimmings. We loved the fireplace for the rainy weather. The location was ideal. Short walk to the beach and park. Also a very short drive to stores and restaurants. The neighborhood was very quiet and lots of parking for our 3 vehicles.

Owner's Response: HI Randy, I am so happy you enjoyed the Blue heron. It is a great location for folks who don't like all the noise and hustle and bustle. The owners work really hard on keeping the home up to date and stocked for their guests. This spring they are planning new flooring through out the home and this will just increase our guests pleasure. Hopefully we will hear from you soon to make another reservation. Katy

Owner's Response: HI Ben, Thank you so much for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the Blue heron. It is 1 1/2 blocks off the beach but, like you said, walking distance. Please give me a call when you decide its time to come back to the beach. Katy
