This rental is perfect if you bring your own toilet paper and don’t mind staying in the unit the entire time! When we arrived no one was there to check us in. The area is rough. We were told we had to keep everything locked due to the homeless trying to make their way in and that we'd be charged if something was unlocked. This involved keys and deadbolts- interior, exterior and laundry doors. We were told the plumbing was sensitive and we’d be charged for any sand in the unit or in the pipes. It was a “beachfront” unit, so naturally sand was going to make its way back to the unit. Guests are supposed to rinse off and leave all wet articles in the laundry room- too much hassle with all the locks. The property description stated that the laundry room was private and available for our use. Never was it mentioned that it was a coin laundry. So, we had to find a bank to buy quarters. Another problem was lack of toilet paper! We were traveling with 3 adults and 2 children and she did not provide one full spare roll for either bathroom- just a used spare in each bathroom. "The Strand” is between the unit and the beach which makes the unit not exactly beachfront as advertised, but more accurately beachview. The strand is a one way road and cars and people do travel along it all day and night long, but the worst part is the dog owners who let their dogs deposit their business up and down the beach and do not bring doggie bags! We drove to a public pet free beach to play, rinsed off there and air dried on the way back. Made me wonder why I paid to stay “beachfront”. Inside the unit it was nice and very clean. The decorations were charming and the view and sound of the waves was awesome. We saw dolphins out the window. If you do decide to visit Oceanside, I HIGHLY recommend eating at Ruby’s on the pier and to ask for DUKE. He was FABULOUS!!! My husband, brother and oldest son did enjoy fishing on the pier and seeing the grunions at night, as well. And Legoland and the San Diego Zoo were big hits with the children also.

Owner's Response: Cottage Charm is a darling unit with sliding glass doors both in the master bedroom and the living room where you can watch the sun set from there and the kitchen as well. We provide 2 rolls of toilet paper per bathroom for each of our guests upon check in. That is usually enough to hold guests over until they get back from the grocery store with their own supplies and groceries. We also cater to families with children and seniors who come in for the winter months to get away from the snow. We are located right on the sand and as a result, we like to make sure our guest feels comfortable and safe so we ask that our building stays locked at all times. All our guests receive 2 sets of keys, one key for the building and one key for their apartment. Only guests have keys and they are free to use the storage room where the washer and dryer is located. The beach level bath room is also kept locked and available for our guests only so they don't have to go up to their apartment to use the facilities if they don't wan't to. We also provide a locked storage unit for our guests to store their boogies boards, surf boards and bikes. The storage unit also has our coin operated washer and dryer for your convenience. Our plumbing has all been replaced but we do ask that our guests keep the sand on the beach as much as possible and so we provide a hose to rinse off and the beach level bath for showers for the children if they choose to use it. Our check in time is 4:00pm and we ask our guest to let us know if they can make that time. If guests are checking in past that time, please call or email us to let us know your approximate arrival time. Our building address is 213 S. Pacific st. Oceanside and we are locked right on the beach with a one way frontage road between our building and the sand. This unit has it's own parking spot directly under the deck. We'd love to have you stay with us and look forward to hearing form you. Thank you for reading our response.


Activity and Interests

We are just blocks from the pier and Ruby's Restaurant, next door to

the park, 4 blocks from downtown Oceanside where you'll find the

Movie Theater, several new restaurants including sushi and a new

steak house, a farmers market on Thursday's loaded with food venders,

local arts and crafters and usually a band, coffee houses and

shopping. Two blocks from the train station for those who may enjoy a

day trip to San Diego, Old Town, Horton Plaza, Coronado Island, Sea

World or Seaport Village, or you can head north to Disneyland, Knotts

Berry Farm and Great America. Surf lessons in front of our building

in the summer, life guards, and several churches all within walking

distance, plus parking and several water toys to choose from. The

marina and harbor are about 2 miles north with a fine selection of

restaurants and shopping as well.
