About Norma and Ron Van Meeteren

We own a small hotel in Palm Springs called A Place in the Sun. Our daughter is in San Francisco, so this location works great for us to meet her half-way.

Norma and Ron Van Meeteren purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Norma and Ron Van Meeteren chose Oceano

We have always wanted a place right on the beach, so chose to buy this rental. We use it as much as we can when it's not rented. We lived in this area many years ago, and are so happy to be back, if only part-time!

What makes this townhome unique

You can fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves, watch incredible sunsets from your private patio(s). You can even see pods of whales, and dolphins and seals playing in the surf, from the privacy of your own balcony patio. Some GREAT restaurants close by, too.

Now pet-friendly! Steps to the pedestrian gate that is right on the sand, for walks on the beach.

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

This rental is beautiful! It blew our expectations out of the water. It checked off all of our wishlist and more. My mother, 2 kids, husband and I felt like we had a lot of room to spread out. The kitchen was stocked with so many utensils and gadgets. Also, the owners were pleasant and responsive. It was a fantastic experience!

Great, relaxing place overlooking everything!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is very comfortable and is right on the water so when the windows are open, the sound of waves was pretty music to our tired souls. The property is right on the driveway to the beach, which was not at all disturbing and in fact was comic relief watching people get stuck in the sand! I loved being a part of the action and seeing the campfires at night was relaxing too. The noise from the beach only lasted maybe an most.

The condo itself was nicely appointed and I was pleased with all it had to offer. The kitchen is huge and the downstairs was comfortable for 5 people. Also liked the location being close to Pismo and Avila Beach. Will definitely look to rent again when we decide to come back. The ONLY drawback that really was not one, was the master bedroom king-size bed was not comfortable for me...but that could my comfort level and not have anything to do with others. Also, the mattress on the pull out couch could have been much better.

All in all....a great weekend in an awesome place! Would definitely recommend!!!

Beautiful and Calming

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a little weekend getaway and it was a perfect fit for us and our kiddos. Even though it's a pretty busy and populated area on the beach, it was a really quiet and relaxing stay; just need to be careful with the little ones running around outside.

Everything was super clean upon arrival and the rooms/beds were comfortable.

Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay!

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We rent properties around the world and this one ranks as one of the top for location, ease, amenities, cleanliness, accessibility, and responsiveness.

The owners respond very quickly and address every question. The place is easily accessible with a lockbox and keyless gate entry so you do not have to arrange to meet anyone upon arrival. The townhouse was clean, beautifully decorated, well furnished, roomy, and welcoming. The view is exceptional from both the walkout patio and the balcony off the master bedroom. You can sleep with the balcony door open and listen to the sounds of the surf and enjoy the soft sea breeze. We were there for five nights and found it very quiet each night.

The beach "closes" at 11:00 pm and even though you may hear an occasional beacher or vehicle, it was not disruptive. The location is next to the vehicle entrance to the beach but it hardly interferes with the view or the enjoyment of the spot. Once vehicles enter, they go to away from the area and the beach in front of you is pretty empty of vehicles and beachers. In the evening, the sunsets are perfect and you can enjoy them on the patio, the beach, or around the fire pit just outside your door, overlooking the beach. You can get firewood from vendors in the area.

We were there with our two adult sons and everyone loved the roominess to spread out and not feel on top of each other. Having three full baths (private ones in each bedroom and one on the first floor) was a real added bonus. Each bathroom was well stocked with towels and toiletries.

The kitchen and living room are full size with a large refrigerator and a working gas fireplace (we did not use). The bedrooms have wall mount fake fireplaces which really added a nice touch to use as a nightlight and they provide some heat if needed. There is also a fan in the master bedroom and living room. The temperature in the unit was very comfortable with just the doors open.

I have to say that the bed in the master bedroom was amazingly comfortable and the most comfortable bed we have ever stayed on in a rental. It has 4" foam and a topper making staying in bed, listening to the waves, a perfect way to start the day.

Finally, a plug for Central Coast Charters, the most amazing whale watch ever (and we are from New England). Best $65 ever for a two hour power boat ride to the whale pods, within 100 feet of these creatures. Lots to do in the area, fun for all ages. Perfect in every way!

What a beautiful place our family enjoyed staying at this location just steps away from the beach. Didn’t have to worry about parking since there was a spot for us to park.
