We felt right at home

  • 5 of 5

The house really grew on us and we all just loved staying here. It had everything we needed. We had to put the baby to sleep on some blankets on the floor, but the next day we opened some more cupboards and there was a crib! They had thought of everything. The renters were very helpful, answering our questions quickly. Oceanside is a lovely place and we can imagine coming here again for vacation from our home in Europe.

What a great home this is for a large or small party. This older home has such character with amazing updated bathrooms. The owners are hands on in answering questions. I would highly recommend this property.

Summer 2017

  • 4 of 5

The location was great. The house is very comfortable and easily accommodated our group of 11. The house does not have a/c and the windows did not have screens so there was a lot of flies in the house during the day. At night we needed fans so bought them and fortunately part of our group drove so could bring them home.

I would still stay there again due to the great location and the house had everything else you needed. The kitchen appliances were awesome!!

Most enchanting stay at the beach EVER!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, fully stocked with everything a home away from home needs to be the perfect fit for our BIG family. The beds were super comfy, the games, boogie boards, bikes, BBQ, and plentiful seating on the patio were all well used by our party. The location is just a quick 12 minute walk to the ocean. We want to come back here every year!!!
