Perfect location for families with kids!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Oceanside. The house was perfectly equipped for kids! We stayed with one other family and there was plenty of room for all 8 of us. My only complaint is that the bunk room was warm. We couldn't seem to get good ac flow into that room. The kids didn't complain though. They loved the closet full of toys! It's the perfect location for the beach and Legoland. The yard is gated so the kids could play outside without worry.

Gary was always quick to respond and check in was really easy. We would definitely stay at Tropical Retreat again!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house and neighborhood. Has all the amenities, was very clean on arrival. Accommodated the seven of us very nicely. The kids appreciated the toys, games, and puzzles on site and the grown-ups appreciated the beach chairs and umbrella provided. We primarily drove to area beaches rather than walking to the closest one, which was a bit small and rocky for our taste. Short distance to Legoland. Not too many shops or restaurants in the immediate vicinity but there is a great donut shop close by!
