  • Southern California Beach Paradise

    "Our family of four (twin teen boys & Mom & Dad) had an awesome time in the Wyndham Oceanside Pier Resort. We had a great 2BR suite on the 6th floor with a northern view that included the beach. The resort is very close to the beach (right across the street) and the beach is gorgeous - no sea wrack, very wide, clean sand. The resort is right beside the long fishing pier (poles for rent and bait for sale on the pier!) and on either side of the pier the waves are perfect for surfing (our sons got their first surfing lessons). The suite was very spacious, with a large living room, a great booth and chair type eating area, two great bedrooms & bathrooms, a well appointed kitchen, and a balcony. The washer and dryer were very heavily used during our two week stay and allowed us to pack less! We typically cooked breakfast in the suite and headed out to the beach or other activities - if we went to the beach we usually prepared lunch in the suite and then went out for dinner - this really reduced food costs. There are lots of great eating choices within walking distance - Petite Madeline, Hello Betty, ZigZag Pizza and 333 were all very close and are recommended - and about a 15-20 minute walk north along the beach there is also a cluster of restaurants - Oceanside Broiler had great food and a nice view of the small boat harbor, Joe's Crab Shack had great inexpensive family seafood (warning - if you elect to buy a picture pay CASH). The resort itself is clean, modern and has a very friendly staff - there are activities daily - examples include a $5 breakfast, afternoon ice cream sundae parties, evening Italian dinner, and mosaic making - a nice way to meet others. There is a pool - not huge but fine for kids - and a great deck area to relax after visiting the beach (there are showers in the 2nd floor restroom to wash off the sand). A really nice feature is that there are two suites reserved for general use on the 7th floor facing the ocean - was a great spot to sit with a bottle of wine and watch the sunset. The fact that this is a Wyndham property instead of a house rental really takes a lot of the uncertainty away from booking a VRBO - you can confirm your reservation with the resort, you are dealing with a major corporation, and any issues are just a phone call away and usually resolved within the hour. Nearby there are lots of recreation opportunities - just south on I-5 there is a great watersports area called Carlsbad Lagoon (jet ski's = fun). Enjoy!"

  • Paradise!

    "We just finished a weeks vacation at this absolutely beautiful condo. The location cannot be beat. Not only is the condo attractively decorated and adorable, but the grounds of the property are absolutely immaculate and beautiful. We walked to the beach every day and played in the ocean, we swam in the gorgeous pool, relaxed in the hot tub, and had the time of our lives. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals or grill by the pool. We flew in, so the beach towels and beach chairs, sand toys and boogie boards were greatly appreciated. We will definitely be back. Brenda was wonderful to work with, and as far as we are concerned there is not a better beach to enjoy in all of the San Diego area. The entire experience was paradise!"

  • Great Place for a Large Group / Family Reunion

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a great stay on the beach. The condo was well appointed and the location was amazing. WOW THE VIEWS!!!! We had three levels of the condo (all but the ground floor) and it served our group 15 quite well. We were able to dedicate the ground floor to the preteen/teen group and having a full extra living space including kitchen was great. The window beds especially were a pleasant surprise and were quite comfortable-- essentially a twin sized accommodation. Each of the bedrooms have an attached bath which was excellent for our group as well. The beach is immediately in front of the cabin which was super fun and convenient although it's a narrow stretch. For true beach/sand/hangout space you'll need to go a few blocks down. (We never needed to do that though.) There's also a small market a two block walk for things like ice, beverages, milk, and quick needs. We would definitely stay here again if we needed this size and type of accommodations. I would not recommend this location for anyone with mobility issues due to the high number of stairs - inside and outside the cabin as well as beach access (down a block to the stairs or over the rock wall). That wasn't an issue for us and we all had an amazing time. We did a lot of cooking (for our large group) and the condo was a little short on large cooking pots/serving dishes, but we worked around it and had many large family meals – breakfast, lunch, and dinner – while we were there. We also went to a local brewery for dinner which was walkable distance and super casual and fun. Not walkable but a great spot to eat is Beach Break especially for breakfast but be ready to wait or get there super early! Again, great place to stay and recommend highly."

  • Excellent view and access to beach!

    "This was a great house for my whole family to get together. We spent a week here and found the house very comfortable and the deck is fantastic! The house is a bit run down, but it really doesn't matter with a view and deck like this one! Very roomy - big enough for myself/husband/4 kids and two of their friends and it didn't feel crowded at all! It was so nice to be able to cook at our own "home" at the beach - and great grill! We walked everywhere and hardly had to drive ever (just to get groceries). Pappy's market is so close and easy to walk to if you forgot something at the store. Jake met us at the house and was very friendly and answered any questions we had (even via text) and the owners are really nice people. Go to the Thursday farmers market and evening fair - wonderful! I would have given this house a 5, but it is an older home that could use updates. The price was very reasonable - I would go back to this house and I highly recommend it!"
