"We were thrilled with this house right on the water in Oceanside. The house was clean, well-kept, tastefully decorated, and even better, had an amazing view. Walking up the stairs and taking in the full ocean view offered in the living area was breathtaking. We all agreed that we would be perfectly content to sit out on the spacious balcony for our full 10 days and just take it all in. Of course, Oceanside and its environs also offered plenty of things to do, but we did try to make it back each evening for spectacular sunsets. If you like to be on the beach, this was only possible at low tide; at high tide, the water in front of the house came right up to the road. However, the beach widened closer to the pier, so even at high tide, you could easily walk to where there was still some beach left. There were always plenty of surfers to watch!
The house was well-equipped with everything we needed for our stay, including a hair dryer, washer and dryer, coffee maker and everything else we needed in the kitchen. Three and a half baths meant no waiting for our group of 9. The parking accommodated four small cars. It was also nice to have the hot tub. The downtown area of Oceanside is a quick 10 minute walk, and has much to offer, including the pier, restaurants, and the sunset market on Thursday evenings. Colleen was great about answering any questions before our trip, and we didn't need to contact her for a thing while we were there. My only suggestion would be to have an extra key or two, since the house accommodates so many people. We sometimes had four groups going in different directions, and had to pay close attention to who had each of the two keys.
If we ever head back to southern California, we would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it highly to others!"
