About Carrie Mahlum

We live in Clovis, Ca. My husband Steve and I have four kids and love to travel to the beach whenever time permits. Our daughter attends Cal Poly. This is our second home and we love to share it with others for their enjoyment.

Carrie Mahlum purchased this condo in 2002

Why Carrie Mahlum chose Oceano

We purchased this home in order to give ourselves somewhere to take the kids on vacation and make memories to last a lifetime.

What makes this condo unique

We love that this home is large enough that we all have our own space. We also love that it sits on the beach with full ocean views.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My mother recently rented your home in California and we went with her on the vacation. I first want to say that you have an amazingly beautiful home. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. My husband and I had the king size bed and we're wondering what mattress topper you have on it? We have never slept so sound and comfortable before. I would be very grateful if you could let me know.

Again thank you so much for allowing us to spend our vacation in your home.

Awesome family vacation on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We rented this huge place with my sister-in-law and their family. There were 10 of us and the house fit us all in style. Lots of bedrooms and beds for everyone. Multiple decks ON THE BEACH and dining room seating for all of us AND my mother and father in law who camped nearby. The house was clean and well appointed and the location was spectacular!!! We were able to access the beach on foot, were close to the dunes for our trips out in the jeep and were minutes away from surfing and kayaking in Pismo. This is the PERFECT rental for a large family get together in the Pismo area.

summer beach rental

  • 5 of 5

All as described. Condo on the beach. Very large at over 3,000 sq ft; big kitchen with island; eat & cook indoors or out. A few minor issues when we arrived but owner very responsive and all solved. Many places to sit and read and watch the activity on the beach. Saw whales from the house and dolphins & seals when in the water. Perfect house for our family celebration.

Great home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family get together. Had a wonderful time. We all commented about how the owners must be nice people because we felt so at home. We had bon fires on the dunes, played games and visited. It's close to everything, yet far enough away from the town hustle. There is a lot of activity outside as it is right by the entrance to the beach. But we loved the action and it became a sporting event for us. We lined our chairs up to watch people coming and going. Not to mention the ones stuck in the sand. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for the great time!

Owner's Response: Hi there! I'm so glad you had a wonderful time! I'm sorry you felt the access to the beach was difficult. We have a back patio gate that opens directly onto the beach. I'm not sure how I am able to make it any easier. As for the TV's, the Charter remote controls the stations and the Samsung remote is only for the sound. I wish you would have contacted me during your stay so I could have explained them to you. Safe travels!

The Oceano Beach is not a normal beach

  • 3 of 5

The unit itself is comfortable and really spacious; however you should do your research about the area. We were surprised to find that the beach in front of the house is a state park that allows vehicles to drive up and down the beach, so it's not safe for pedestrians or children. We opted to drive to Avila for a more quiet setting--but if you want to drive on the beach or drive ATVs in the dunes, this is your place.

Carrie was a good host and very attentive, calling to give personal instructions the day before and responding quickly when we reported the wifi was not working.

Owner's Response: **After reaching out to Mark regarding the 4/5 stars he responded that he made a mistake....he meant to put 5/5 stars, but he is unable to change his rating due to the websites policies. Thank you for the kind words. I'm so glad you had a fun Memorial Day weekend! You are welcome back anytime!
