2/5 Poor

Would not stay here again.
The property is under the hosts main house and the ceilings are paper thing. Most nights we were kept up until late because we could hear every foot step, flush of the toilet or step their dog took. It was not a good place for getting any type of rest. The lock in the door is a pain to use and it’s located off the main freeway. Would not recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Great place, great views.
We had a wonderful stay here. The unit could use a freshen up like a paint job but it's super clean. Super close to all. Easy to get to. It is close to freeway but you could barely hear inside which was surprising. Rarely heard owners above. Great rate. Easy drive to San Diego. Killer view. Wish we had a bbq. We will def stay again. Recommend fully. Thanks Tibi

5/5 Excellent

Modern, Safe, and Lovely
This house was safe and secure, in a lovely setting. The entire bottom floor of the house was private, lighting up to date, furniture, kitchen, bathrooms, modern and neat. It was decorated in a neat and fresh way which we really appreciated. The technology worked well as far as internet and televisions. The laundry room was very convenient and worked very well and the kitchen had all the supplies and utensils one would appreciate in their own home. The owners were easily available should we have questions and allowed us all the freedom we needed to come and go, and parking in the driveway was a huge benefit. This is located within such easy access to the highway and all the areas you may want to get to. The owners had some nice items waiting for us upon arrival, which was a lovely gesture. You could not find a more reasonable, clean, modern place for your stay! We hope to be back as the property is very close to our son and his family!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful, clean, great property with the view!
We had a wonderful stay at this place! It has everything we needed for comfortable living in these pandemic times: comfy beds in the spacious bedrooms, nice, clean and spacious bathrooms, well equipped kitchen with everything needed for cooking nice meals and huge patio with great views to have nice socially distant, if needed, dinners.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Vista in Oceanside
The property has very easy access to CA-78 and I-5, and is also close to the Coast Highway and just a few miles from the Oceanside Pier. The rental also had a great porch area with a really stellar view of the lagoon. Owners live in the upper floors but only once or twice did I even hear a footstep. Heat wave during our stay made it kind of sticky (no A/C in unit), but I'm sure everyone in the area was feeling the same way. Owners were very pleasant and we only saw them briefly a couple of times.
