About Sandy Miller

My son and husband have taken up surfing and really love it. We live in the mountains in Southern California and use the condo whenever we can. My husband actually snow skied and surfed all in one day on his birthday in 2007.

Sandy Miller purchased this condo in 1992

Just as described and more!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as described, however, we were pleasantly surprised to find things typically not available when you arrive at a VRBO - like paper towels, Tupperware, DVD's, playing cards, boogie boards, beach chairs, binoculars, etc. The home is very well stocked - tons of towels, sheets, pillows and blankets! The condo isn't "new" nor is the carpet, but you can't beat the location, the amenities and the comfort. Only somewhat negative is that the windows don't block out noise, so when it's trash day, you knew it, or if people were walking down the sidewalk and being loud, you knew it. If you're a light sleeper, a white noise machine might be helpful.

The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. The parking spot is adequately wide and the garage space is immaculate, with plenty of lighting, security and recycling!

All in all, a great value! Terrific location, easy access to everything you need and comfortable without being trashy or pretentious.

Sun and Sand

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed at NCV on numerous occasions. This is my first time at this unit. This was the most well equipped unit I have ever stayed in and since I was there for a month, that made cooking with the array of pots, pans ,dishes and all required for meals very easy. Lower cabinets had pull out drawers which made me extremely jealous as I do not have that feature at my house. All the necessary items for living somewhere for a month were there. Had to contact the owner on two occasions for questions about the internet and she was most helpful and kind. The view of the ocean and the sun experience on the balcony was wonderful as we were there from the cold east. Hope to stay here again on my next visit to Southern California. Would not hesitate to recommend this unit to others.

Owner's Response: Thanks Bill for the review. I agree this summer the humidity in July was unusual. However, the ocean breeze usually keeps the unit pretty cool with the ceiling fans and floor fans. Glad you had a good time. Looking forward to your next trip. Sandy Miller.

Awesome Beach Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

Okay, so I'm not much into writing reviews unless I've had a bad experience with a restaurant, hotel, etc. but in this case it was just the opposite. My family and I had an amazing experience in Oceanside and the condo was a big part of that. I came to Oceanside to participate in my first Ironman 70.3 event, which was awesome. Oceanside is a cool little beach town tucked in just north of San Diego. I came across this condo on VRBO and am glad we stayed here. Not only is it well maintained, but my children loved the swimming pool and hot tub. Did I mention the beach is just steps away? The great part for me is that I was able to walk to the starting line for the triathlon and the run portion went right past the balcony, so my kids could watch and cheer me on. The owner is responsive and helpful and as other reviews have said the condo has a well stocked kitchen and boogie boards to use at the beach Overall it was a great experience. I'll definitely be back...after I recover from the triathlon.

Great property. Great location. Great trip.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is steps to the beach with a great ocean view from the patio. I loved taking my coffee from the patio every morning and watching the waves. The condo grounds and facilities are well maintained, with a tropical feel. Great pool/spa area. Friendly folks all around. The condo itself was comfortable and well-equipped (plenty of beach gear). Plenty of room for my two boys to sleep. Check-in was a breeze and the renters were easy to deal with. Would definitely return and recommend to others.
