Guestbook comments from the manager

We have been to this charming beachfront home so many times all of my grandkids think this is "Grandmas Beach House" We love the lawn right on the beach. It is just perfect for three generations to enjoy our time at the beach. Its cute as a button.

Amazing Beach Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from an absolutely amazing week at this house! We went with 13 people (8 adults, 5 kids) and felt like we had ample space. Although admittedly, we spent the majority of time outside. If you have the chance to stay here, you'll understand why!

We all commented that although we wouldn't have looked for it, having the grass area in the back was fantastic. The kids could run and play and it kept the house a lot cleaner. We bbq'd every night and ate our meals on the picnic tables in the sand. The fire pit was amazing at night and of course, this house is RIGHT ON THE BEACH! Just a few steps out the back door and we were on an awesome beach. It never felt crowded, water was great, and we could watch dolphins ride the waves...unbeatable!

To top it off, Kim the owner was fantastic. It was so nice to have her two doors down and although she was there when we needed her, it never felt like she was "checking in on us". Overall she was a pleasure to work with.

The memories we created with friends and family here will be something we all remember for years and years to come. I recommend this experience 100%.

This was my family's THIRD stay at this beautiful home in Oceanside. We are so spoiled by its charm and fantastic location, it's hard to imagine staying anywhere else. Waking up each morning with the ocean literally right outside your door is Heaven on Earth. And the sunsets are unbelievable. Kim is awesome to deal with and makes the stay hassle-free. Thanks so much for sharing this little slice of Paradise!

Perfect Getaway

This property is perfect for a family get away. Close to shops and restaurants and the pier. But you can't beat the amazing location and view. Awesome watching the surfers and the kids playing in the ocean while we enjoyed our private beach. Couldn't ask for anything better!

This is our second time back at this adorable beach house. We just love the decor and how it fits our growing family. We have little kids everywhere. The house has a great private beach and a great lawn right on the beach that is perfect for young families. We have three generations under the same roof and best of all we are right on the beach!

Quality family time!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week with our 3 adult children and their families. The place takes your breath away when you walk through the front door and see the view. There was enough room for all of us, and it worked out well even with two babies in the mix. I was a little concerned about the fourth bedroom since it had no door, but it's location was off the small sitting room, with a wall between the sitting room and the other two lower floor bedrooms. It actually felt fairly private, and you had a view of the ocean from bed! The kitchen was well-stocked, although the cupboards and drawers worked a little rough. This is an historic house, and those things are to be expected. I would have loved to have seen hooks in the bathrooms and hallways, since there wasn't anywhere to hang towels and jackets.
Oceanside is a lovely town. We happened to hit a really cold week, so we didn't swim (except for our two crazy sons that took a late night swim on New Year's Eve) but we took some delightful walks, rode the train to Solana Beach for lunch, had fires at night in the firepit, and just enjoyed the place and the people. Having the beach outside the back door with glorious sunsets each evening can't be beat. Kim was a delightful host, our family had a wonderful time, and we intend to return.
