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 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.

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!!

Amazing!!! Even better than the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with everything you could possibly want!

We had 18 people and plenty of space. Never felt cramped at all.

The pool, hot tub, beach, bikes....our three families, ages 4-75, had fun with everything!

Absolutely amazing.

The house was fully stocked with everything you could ask for. The owners anticipated everyone's needs and the property was very accommodating for all. It was the best home we have ever rented. We will definitely be back. This property is much more than five stars.

What a gem

  • 5 of 5

This was a first class property with all the amenities.

Great location and lots of room for our entire family.

Casita and bunk house provide plenty of areas for separate groups.

Pool and spa were the hit of the weekend.
