About Laurie

We have lived in Oceanside for over 20 years, we have two children and very much enjoy our life here in southern California. We invite you to our beach home where you to can begin to create new memories and enjoy your beach-life get-Away!

Laurie purchased this house in 2014

Why Laurie chose South Oceanside

This property is totally unique to the beach area because it has a 3 separate living areas, courtyard, a BBQ, gated yard, an edgeless pool and hot tub, it really is a Mermaid. It truly is a beautiful and spacious home. The views are spectacular and the beach is just steps away.

What makes this house unique

Many families travel as a group and find themselves having to lodge separately, eat out every night and being cooped-up in a small room together for activities. Not here. We can accommodate families of most sizes. This spacious property and layout allows you and your family to enjoy your vacation and time away from home while offering you all the comforts of home.

Marilyn 80

  • 5 of 5

What fun celebrating my 80th birthday. The house perfect with kitchen with every item you could desire. The pool was so much fun for swimming after the beach. The lovely lawn to watch the sunsets. We were 27 from age 6 months to 80. ( we did rent another house for sleeping. ). See you in 10 years if I am still around..

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

What can you say about such a beautiful place?. Our family ages 5 to 85 stayed here after my granddaughters wedding. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, but also to spend time together as a family. Spent our days at the beach, came back and relaxed by the pool and hot tub. Grilled out, made smores on the fire, played yard games and enjoyed the many sitting areas. Everyone really enjoyed using the beach cruiser bikes to get around. We all would like to live here and my great grandson, age 5, wants to save up money to buy this home. It was the vacation of a lifetime. Thank you to Laurie, the owner for her wonderful hospitality.

Culver City, California

Looooove this house!! Miss it already.

  • 5 of 5

Where do I even begin?! I've rented a lot of homes in the past for previous vacation weekenders, and or business trips. This is by far the best rental property experience I've ever had. I rented it for a large group (15 ladies), for a bachelorette/birthday party. So you can only imagine how hard it is to please everyone. But this house made it easy. We all loved it. Plenty of space for everyone to sleep comfortably. The pandora surround sound system was pretty sweet. We spent almost the entire weekend in the pool. We all agreed that we would definitely want to go back for another trip at some point just to stay here again. Laurie was also very hospitable and available to answer any questions we had! Thanks again Laurie!!
