Our quaint beach bungalows are inches from the ocean, with no roads between the rental and the beach! Right next to the bungalow there is a shared patio to enjoy with a barbecue, fire ring, large grass area, and sandbox for the kids, all with the beach as your backdrop! All the bungalows have been updated with crown molding, new carpet and paint. Each unit has its own kitchenette with a refrigerator and oven/stove. Kitchen utensils, towels, & linens are all provided. This unit has one very spacious bedroom.
These units are perfect for romantic getaways, a gathering with friends, or for a small family. And you'll love the location! The coastal town of Oceanside boasts wide, sandy beaches and beautiful weather all year long. There?s no shortage of activities for play or relaxation. After a day in the sun, take a stroll to the Oceanside Pier, the longest wooden pier on the western U.S. coastline. Take in the views, watch the surfers or drop a line and go fishing. Or, consider taking a sailboat out on the harbor at sunset. You will not find a better deal on a beachfront vacation rental!

Patricia S. from Apollo Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 We had a wonderful stay at the unit and enjoyed sitting out in the common area in the evening. The fire pit was an added bonus.
Linda O. from ALTA LOMA, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2016 Our experience was great. Felt like we were at home except for a couple things but we didn't allow that to ruin our stay.
A guest from Wayland, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in May, 2016 We had an amazing time visiting SoCal in early May 2016. The BPO rental was clean and exactly as advertised. It was a great value for Oceanside, which is perfectly situated halfway between Anaheim and San Diego.
Most Amazing Vacation spot for a family on a budget
Amanda F. from Mesa, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 This place is a hidden gem! I never thought I would be able to afford to stay so close to the beach. I hope it doesn't get knocked down because we will be going back for years to come!
Valerie M. from Vista, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 The place was perfect for my little family of 3. A little cramped to sleep 4 however. The courtyard saved the day which is where I hosted my Moms 60th bday. The staff goes above and beyond with their help and hospitality. We didnt want to leave!
Jocelyn K. from Williston, ND recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2016 This is the 2nd year in a row that we've stayed at the beach rentals at 835 S Pacific St in Oceanside. We love these beach rentals because they are cute and right on the beach, and also a decent price ????Our only complaints for this time would be that only one roll of TP was provided, the brand new towels hadn't been washed so they got blue fuzz over everything (body and bathroom), and there was sand on the sheets when we got there. We would have had to buy more TP regardless, but even staying at a hotel you get at least one extra roll. It wasn't the end of the world though ??We loved the beachy decor and that the small kitchen has pretty much everything you'd need, and the fire pit outside is a nice bonus ???? Also was nice that not all the units were full so we actually got to park up front in the parking lot each time this year. We had to call a couple of times regarding minor issues and the staff was super friendly and helpful each time. We'd definitely recommend this place!As far as the town of Oceanside, it's a cute town. We didn't get to check out too many shops because we had so many other things going on. But we recommend checking out the pier. And for food, Sabai Sabai Thai has amazing food and the owner is great! Petite Madeline Bakery has delicious omelettes and crepes, their other baked goods look amazing too. For coffee, we liked Black Rock Coffee espresso stand the best- get the Irish Cream coffee! ??
Sandra P. from St.Albert, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in January, 2016 We really enjoyed our month at Beachfront Property. Location was awesome. Enjoyed each morning on the patio watching sea life and hearing the waves of the beautiful Pacific Ocean!
MICHAEL L. from tucson, arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2015 We have been coming here for about ten years....have always had a nice time....I liked unit no. 3...but the shower was way to small....I showed the Maintenance guy who came to repair the curtain rod...He agreed that the door was put on the wrong way...other than that had a blast...wish the repeat discount was more than 5% should be 10 to 20% always a fun time
Diane W. from Edmonton, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 We love these bungalows and will keep coming back!A charming,quite spot with a great location.Love the new decorating. With that said please get rid of the futton! It is not comfortable for sitting, sleeping and is impossible to get sand out of
Sylvia G. from Desert Hot Springs, California recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 Had 4 people stay in this unit. Not enough toilet paper. Dinette set too close to refrigerator,couldn't open the frig,had to move it. Trash can in the restroom should not be next to the toilet, almost tripped on it several times, moved it next to the sink. Other then those things. Loved our stay. Will be back.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hello Sylvia, thank you for your review. We make sure there is enough paper products to get you started on your vacation, so you don't have to run right out to the store. Sometimes people do run out though. We have adjusted the location of the items mentioned. ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Jeri W. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 We had a great time. The fire pit provided great time to just lay back and watch the waves. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever.
Heather A. from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2015 As a family of 5 with three kids, we love staying at Beach Front Only bungalows. Very convenient and nicely updated.
A guest from Silverado, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 Nice location. Super uncomfortable couch. Very strange not having any personal contact with staff since they weren't onsite.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for the review. We actually have an office on the same block as the property you rented. We usually leave our guests alone to enjoy their stay and they only see us if we have to fix something. We will take a look at the couch and change it if needed. ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
Terry R C. from Big Bear City, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 Sadly we were unable to use the bungalow due to a family emergency, however at the suggestion of one of your reps. other family members were able to enjoy it. They fully enjoyed it and thought the whole experience was awesome. We will try again next year !!!!
A guest from las vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 his was my first time booking with beach front for my family. Our experience was fantastic. The room was unit 3, was perfect size for a family with two small children. Although we arrived 2hrs before 4pm check in time and our room was being cleaned at 2pm.The roomwas ready a little after 4:15 . This was hard because my little ones needed to use the bathrooms :( I suggest to make early check in arrangements. But it was super clean and I was pleased to see a job well done. The linens were fresh and the bed was comfy. The location was perfect being close to the pier with a playground. It's an easy 5 min drive to downtown Oceanside. We enjoyed the garden and common area for evening dinner times. It's nice to have the kids to play in the grass without worrying about sand. I would suggest a small hot tub for the property and a laundry area for families. The property next door was owned by BFO and had these. Lastly It would more convenient to have larger portable fans for bigger units. It got hot during the afternoon and took awhile to cool down in the evening. Other than these minor requests, we loved our stay! We will be back.
Ronald G. from Vista, 92084 does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 Refer to my review # @ Vacation rentals by owner web site.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for your review. We are sorry for any inconvenience you may have experienced with your code not working right away. We have scheduled to put a DVD player in the unit, and there is a gas BBQ in the common area. As far as storage, these units are pretty small, which doesn't allow for too much storage space. ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from barnhart, Missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2015 Older, updated bungalow. Perfect location, close enough to the main tourist area, far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet. Beach was beautiful and the common patio area was wonderful. We would recommend.
A guest from Redlands, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2014 My experience with this rental was great. I was a little nervous booking at first, but decided to try it. Glad we did! It was really easy, no hassle check in/check out process. It was very clean and comfortable. I would book again in the future! My only complaint is that the TV is so small and no cable channels really. We brought our roku luckily, just a suggestion =]
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Glad you enjoyed your stay! We love our bungalows and are in the process of updating all of them. They are "Cozy" as their description would suggest, and we feel that a "Big" screen might be a little bit of an over kill in these smaller units. This unit is scheduled for remodel and we will add a larger TV.
Stephanie . from Oceanside, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 Very cute little cottage. Clean, and stocked with every thing you could want. 2 suggestions. Screen in bedroom was a little bent, so some Mosquitos got in. Maybe one more larger portable fan would be nice. It got quite warm, especially in the living room. Loved the side courtyard.
Rodney B. from Chandler, AZ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 Not so good... No air conditioning, no parking, no beach, refrigerator didn't work, loud trains, etc... but staff was understanding and helpful...
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Rodney, thank you for your review. We are so sorry about the hot weather and inconveniences that you experienced. We did refund you all rent except for the one night you stayed, and we hope that this was substantial enough. This property will be undergoing some renovations in the next couple weeks, and we hope the weather will start cooling down.
A guest from Parker, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 While the rental was not as new and nice as photographed, it was clean and comfortable. It could use a full-length mirror and more towel hooks. The location is fabulous. The beach is right out your door, the pier and harbor are right down the road, and Carlsbad Village is minutes away. We will be renting again, and I've already told friends about the rental.
Beautiful and convenient location makes for a blissful vacation!
A guest from Tempe, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 This was our 2nd time at this rental since we loved the location: right on the beach, with a great view from the shared patio, and only and short walk to the pier.I love falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and having a rental so close makes staying on the beach all day possible, with showers and bathroom just a short walk away. All the little amenities including fresh towels and kitchen items makes for a wonderfully relaxing stay. Highly recommend!
A guest from Glendale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 My second time at this property. It was even better the second time around. Everything you need for a relaxing stay and steps away from the beach is my favorite. I can't wait for my next stay!
A guest from GLENDALE AZ, AZ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2014 Funiture in our unit was not as discribed in pictures, there was an extremely uncomfortable futon couch that had springs almost exposed and a very uncomfortable chair to sit on, the bed was lumpy, i ended up sitting on a camp chair that i had brought for the beach because furniture was unbearable, our blinds were broke and our fridge wasnt working properly, which management replaced immediately, we actually left a day early because of the furniture, figured we had enough of the uncomfortableness, we would not stay here again unless new furniture was brought in, and would not recommend to any friends, unhappy custumer, Tim
Theresa . from Fleming, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Had a great time, great location, parking was very limited & pardiers parked outside our bedroom and were very loud 2 of the 4 nights we stayed. Would still stay again. Saw dolphins everyday from the viewing common area.
A guest from PRESCOTT, ARIZONA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 I wanted to treat my mother to Mother's Day by the ocean so searched the "net" for someplace as close to beach as possible. The 538-3 property was just as it was described in words and pictures and we enjoyed every minute spent there. We started planning for another stay within hours of arriving and have many family members and friends wanting to book a stay. Only wished I had found this gem years ago and hope it remains as quaint and quiet as it is now. So many of the charming older structures in the area have been razed and replaced with wall-to-wall ultra-modern monstrosities. We so hope the building permit posted on the street side of the complex doesn't mean the complex is in jeopardy. Less really is more!
A guest from La Crescenta, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 This is a hidden gem. It is our third visit and it's always clean, comfortable and affordable. Location is incredible for the cost. Some of our best experiences have been meeting other tenants around the firepit. We can't wait to return!
Jake G. from Fall Creek, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 We had a great stay at this place but the beach was not around most of the time. during high tide there is no beach at all. During low tide there was some. we did like the place though
A guest from Glendale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 I absolutely loved my stay at Beach Front Only in Oceanside! The property was ideally located and the common area was as relaxing as it was beautiful. I appreciated the upgraded bathroom fixtures too! I've already told 5 different friends about it who are looking to visit San Diego.
A guest from Libertyville, IL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 Location encouraged others to pull their cars up right outside unit waking us up at night. Location allowed strangers to walk to ocean or walk dogs right outside unit waking us up.Shower leaked and front door allowed water in.Pictures of unit on homeaway did not match where we stayed,Sent email to management and it took them two days to get back to us.Unit was bare bones, but a decent value.I would not stay there again.
A guest from San Angelo, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2014 Overall our experience was awesome. The only thing I would like to see addressed is sharpening of the kitchen knives. We BBQed everyday and trying to cut the meat with extremely dull knives was a pain. A suggestion would be to add a kitchen knive sharpener to each unit. Small and nip picky I know, but other than that it was amazing. So amazing that we plan on returning in the summer with our families. Thanks again!
Sally S. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013 We love BeachFront only rentals!! Recently stayed in number 3 bungalow for Thanksgiving week. We were right on the ocean and listening to the waves at night is the best. Had a great view, watched the sunset most nights. BeachFront only properties are always clean and cozy and the staff are always most hospitable. This is our third time to stay here and we are never disappointed. So relaxing and we will keep coming back to beautiful Oceanside.
A guest from Avondale, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2013 Great location! Walking distance to pier, restaurants, playgrounds. We ate breakfast and dinner on the common area patio server all times. Nice to look at the ocean an enjoy our meal. Also hung out at the firepit in the evening and relaxed with the view if the beach. The beach is just steps away. Would definitely come back or recommend these bungalows to friends.
A guest from Hemet, California recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 Loved our stay at beachfront only- staff helpful and courteous, cottage clean, average furnishing - great access to the beach! We'll be back soon!
Lynae P. from St. George, Utah recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 This place was amazing. You cannot get any closer to the beach than this. The patio was great for meals and relaxing. The beach out front wasn't crowded and the kids loved taking walks and looking for sea shells. We also enjoyed the community area and had fun roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. If you are looking for a good price on a beach front unit this is the one for you.
Sonya T. from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 It was a great little spot to get away and spend days at the beach. It was convientant, close to freeway, resturants and shopping. My 9 year old quotes, "this is the best beachhouse in the world." My family will remember this house for many years to come.
A guest from GLENDALE, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2013 WE STAYED IN UNIT 3, SEPT, 2013, IT WAS OUR FIRST TIME TO THE AREA, THE LOCATION WAS AWESOME, WE HAD A GREAT TIME, WE READ OTHER REVIEWS ON THIS UNIT AND HAVE TO AGREE WITH THEM ABOUT THE LACK OF TOWEL RACKS IN BATHROOM, [ONLY ONE, WITH PLENTY OF ROOM FOR MORE], AND HOW HOT OUR UNIT WAS, WE ONLY HAD 1-SMALL FAN IN OUR UNIT AND IT WAS NOT SUFFICIENT, BESIDES THAT EVERYTHING ELSE WAS FINE, WE LOVED THE COMMON AREA, AND THE FACT WE WERE ABLE TO BRING OUR DOG, WE WILL COME BACK HERE AGAIN,
Tammy M. from Rocklin, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 We really loved the location of this property. We stayed in number 6. It was about 10 steps to the sand. The beach in front of the property was very nice and not crowded at all. My husband surfed everyday. The unit itself did not look at all like the picture. Instead of a couch there was a futon that was very uncomfortable. The kitchen has no counter space. The bathroom shower was hard to get into. Very small and old. I would suggest they put some towel hooks to hang wet towels, there is no place to hang anything and the shower had no place to put soap or shampoo. It was very noisy at night. I would stay again but not in this unit. I felt like people were talking right at my window and the cars coming and going at night were loud. Great location, Met really nice people that were staying there. Needs to be updated
Jean L. from Prescott, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2013 great location, near the beach. The place could use a dresser or a couple more shelves and hooks. Otherwise we had a great time there and our dog was able to be there without any fuss
Kathryn G. from Mondovi, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in April, 2013 We loved our stay at the Beachfront Bungalow. It was perfect for us. All the attractions are a short drive away and it was nice to go home at the end of the day to more space than a motel would have. It had almost everything we needed. About all we could ask for would be more towel racks (it is near the beach!) and a microwave stand so there would be a bit of counter space. Otherwise, 5 stars all the way!
Elizabeth P. from El Paso, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013 Thank you! We had a terrific time at your property. The location couldn't get any better. I loved the keyless entry - what a concept. I also loved the app that we could download onto our phones and be able to share with friends. Awesome! Thank you again!
A guest from Victoria, B.C recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013 We stayed with our two boys for 5 nights. We had everything we needed. We were glad to be on the outskirts of San Diego, as the beach was almost empty. We had it to ourselves. We went boogie boarding, rented wet suits in a local shop for $5. Great location. beds were very comfortable. My only complaint would be the bathroom was lacking in placing to hang your wet clothes.
Jessica R. from Corsicana, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013 This was a really wonderful place to stay. You could not beat the location and the outside common area was so very awesome! My sister and I really enjoyed drinking our coffee and having breakfast in the morning while watching the surfers do their thing. Fantastic place and we so cannot wait to come back!
Sharon O. from Wickenburg, AZ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 The bathroom was a joke--good thing my friend and I are little. I never felt secure due to inability to lock front window (which was next to street). There was really no place to put our belongings. The futon is absolutely miserable. I don't know how you can say 4 people could stay there. Charming is not a word I would use to describe this property.
RICHARD T. from PHOENIX, ARIZONA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 The unit was nice and the location great but with no a/c it was not pleasant staying there. There is no ceiling fan in the bedroom and the little fans provided did not help at all. Even with the windows open, ceiling fan in living room and the 2 little fans going it was very very warm in the unit. Had to go outside to cool off at night.The unit had no dresser to put clothing and no place in bathroom to put anything. No rack in shower for soap/shampoo etc. The windows had a stick to keep them closed as the locks did not work. The television was very small, like watching a 13" monitor.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for your feedback. We have large fans by request that are very powerful for any unusual weather. We will be adding a dresser. The sticks for the window are for safety purposes not a locking mechanism. The televisions provided in each unit are 27-32" screens. ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Casa Grande, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 The location was close to the ocean. only had a couple hours of beach time during low tide. Worst part was no A/C. It was very stuffy & humid. Could use a ceiling fan in the bed room. Price was good but, with out A/C I wouldn't go back.
GAYLE S. from HENDERSON, NEVADA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 IT WAS REALLY NICE. THE ONLY NEGATIVE THING I HAVE TO SAY IS THE FUTON SHOULD BE REPLACED WITH A COUCH AND HIDDEN BED. THERE WERE FOUR SENIOR LADIES STAYING THERE AND WHEN TWO OF THEM SLEPT ON THE FUTON AND ONE GOT UP THE OTHER ONE ENDED UP ON THE FLOOR AND COULD OF BROKEN A HIP OR SOMETHING ELSE.
KAREN U. from RIVERSIDE, California recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 Hear the crash of every wave from the bedroom window of your cozy bungalow. Enjoy moonlit walks on the beach. Walking distance to 333 Club (A must). Hope be go back very soon. There was only one thing that I didn't like and that was the size of the TV, way too small.
A guest from Divide, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 The beach front location was perfect for our vacation, and hearing ocean waves every night was exactly what our family needed. The unit had everything that was needed, and the fire pit in the common area was the icing on the cake. We watched sunsets every night from the common area with a fire and will remember this vacation always.
T.J. B. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 Great location. My only complaint is the quality of the furniture. We stayed in unit 6 last year and it was excellent. However, this year we stayed in unit 3 and the couch, chair and bed in unit 3 all are in need of replacing. Everything else was wonderful. Management co. is excellent, honest and helpful. Thanks again!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi thank you for the feedback and we appreciate your business! We will inspect the furniture and replace, as needed. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Sharon K. from Albuquerque, NM recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 A little small, but didn't matter because we were at the beach or common area most of the time (which is literally 30 steps from the front door!). Common area is great, with grill, tables, etc. Will definitely come back!
Heather W. from Goodyear, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2012 We had a nice time at the property. Great location. A bit rundown, but worth the rental rates that we paid. Thank you.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Heather: thank you for the feedback. Our bungalows are definitely our more casual and 'beachy' properties. However, if anything is not up-to-par during your visit, please call our Operations team for assistance. We do pride in our standards of cleanliness and upkeep of our rentals. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Mesa, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012 We stayed in unit 3 and had a wonderful time. The house was a great size for 3 people. The location was terrific and I would definately stay again!
Richard B. from Glendale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 Everything about our stay was great overall, but do wish the chair and futon were more comfortable in our unit.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hello Richard: thank you for the feedback! The sleeper futon is a new piece of furniture, but if the cushion is too firm for you, we would be happy to loan you a mattress topper during your visit. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Fontana, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2012 Overall our experience was very good. We especially liked spending time outdoors in the patio area with the warm firepit and the sandpit/grass area for the kids. Good times!
norman c. from Sherwood Park, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2012 The location of our unit was wonderful - so close to the ocean. The common area where the fire pit was located was a great place to sit and enjoy the surroundings, and meet others who were staying there. Although the unit was small, it was well equipped, with a few drawbacks. The kitchen table had one leaf that was not functional. There was no way to keep it up, so you could not use the round table to its fullest. The blinds on the front window needed to be repaired. And there was not very much counter space for food preparation.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for your feedback! The kitchen table has been replaced and the blinds have been repaired. We hope to see you again soon! ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
Tabitha V. from Modesto, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2011 My family of 4 had a great time in Oceanside. We were close enough to day trip in to San Diego attractions and multiple beach fun. We can't wait to do it again. The kids loved the ocean front and we loved the view. It was experience to remember. TV
A guest from Brentwood, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2011 This visit was centered on welcoming our son home from a 7 month deployment to Afghanistan. Three of us stayed in the unit, and found it to be quite comfortable. What really sets Beachfront apart from other organizations we have rented through is the Management team itself. Most of my correspondence when making the arrangements was with Sheva, and if she is representative of the rest of the team, it is a winning team. Keep up the good work, and we'll be staying with you again...soon, I hope!!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for the kind words, Lindsay! It is a pleasure to accommodate your family and we hope to see you again soon! ~Sheva and the Team at Beachfront Only
Therese G. from Euclid, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2011 I stayed in October as I prefer off-season travel so perhaps I would have stayed here anyway..but what initially sold me on this property was the special offer for October stays. A huge savings which only added to making my stay great. I love Oceanside and this property, located right on the coast, is well-maintained, clean, modern and comfortable. The common patio area is great with a beautiful view. There were few amenities that weren't provided (everything from beach towels to coffee filters were included). My only suggestions are to update the windows/screens/blinds as they are a little outdated and easily go off-track or are difficult to raise/lower. I had diificulty entering the unit when I first arrived and Susan came within minutes of my call to remedy the situation quickly (the original code that I was supplied with wouldn't work) and I didn't have any problems with the code after that.All in all 5 stars and I will definitely be back!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Therese: thank you for the feedback and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We will inspect the screens/blinds and replace as needed. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Barbara M. from La Crescenta, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2011 We couldn't have been happier with the location and the accomodations, and the price was very reasonable. And a blue phosphorescent surf event was the crowning point of the trip. We can't wait to come back.
Leia A. from Valley Center, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2011 I had an overall good time. However online you mention that there is no AC units because there is such a nice ocean breaze. This was not the case for my unit. It was not a forward facing unit so it was HOT! I had to leave door open until late in the night. Please let your customers be aware of this. thank you!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Leia: thank you for the feedback. Normally, our coastal rentals have great air circulation from the ocean and our Summers are pleasant/moderate. However, the past two Summers (2011, 2012), reached record highs all across America. AC is not a common feature of coastal rentals in the San Diego market; however, if we continue to experience record high temperatures, we are sure to investigate better cooling options. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Good Price, Good Location, No Counters, Small Shower
Deborah K. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in August, 2011 Enjoyed our stay and the place while small and an older building was very clean and had everything you need. The kitchen was challenging as there was no counter space -with the only counter having a microwave on it. There is plenty of space to add a cabinet or some other furnishing to provide both needed counter space and storage. The bathroom was actually quite large but with a pedestal sink, again there was no counter and with only one towel rack, finding a place to set things down or hang them up was a challenge. Finally the shower has a very small opening which if you are a large person requires squeezing through, once in it however, there is space, but seriously it looked to be an 18 in. opening. You can't beat the accessibility to the beach and the views from the shared patio area. I would definitely recommend this place to others. Also, downtown Oceanside has a very nice weekly street fair on Thursday evenings. OK, the more I write this the more I want to go back now. Thanks for a nice place to stay.
cheryl g. from indio, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011 Literally steps away from the beach. We love the outdoor patio with sand box, lawn, fire pit and tables. Would come back next year for longer stay.
A guest from Mesa, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2011 This was a great property for the price, everthing was up to par, we had no problems. The area is great - you can't get much closer to the beach. Love the common area, a great place to relax. The water pressure in the shower could have been better, other than that, it was perfect. I will be coming back here in the future.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals The water pressure has been addressed. Thank you for your comments - The Team at Beachfront Only
Teresa C. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 Some bungalows are better than others, depending on your like/ dislike. I always love to come here and detach, my family loves it! It is peaceful and everyone is so nice and laid back. This place is all about the location. It is not a ritz carlton, however, some of us live in the real world and this is a great place!
Matthew R. from Boise, Idaho recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2011 This property definitely exceeded my expectations! It was a 16 hour drive each way, but it was more than worth it! The property was clean, and the managers were helpful! The property was beautiful as well!
A guest from Encino, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2011 We had a marvelous time! It was so much more than we expected! Especially being right smack on the beach. Sleeping to the sound of the waves. The only thing I would add is additional blankets because we were a bit cold at night, even with the heater. In addition, there was no bedding for the fold out couch. Also, the front door was extremely difficult to open and I bruised my wrist trying to get the suction to break loose in order for it to open. Please look into this because you don't want someone breaking the door or glass in the process of trying to get it open. Otherwise, it was a perfect little condo, perfect parking and close to stores, food, gas, etc. We absolutely loved it and will most definitely be coming back. Charming inside and out! Great fire pit, quiet and your cleaning staff was very nice! Thanks again for everything, we'll see you soon. Stela & Darius Guernsey
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals We will always supply additional blankets if requested. This is a seasonal issue and all depends on the weather. There is always extra bedding in the sheet basket, and it is there now. We have taken a look at the front door, and cannot find an issue.
James S. from Collierville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2010 Rental was older but in good condition. Furnishings were minimal and bathroom had no shelves or storage. Location was great! Just steps from the beach, the surf lulled us to sleep each night. One bad note was lock on front sliding window is broken. Neighborhood is so nice we didn't really mind but was a less than desirable flaw. Has great common area by the beach with gas grill, table, and chairs.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Glad to here you enjoyed being steps to the beach. The window lock has been repaired and we hope you join us at the beach again - The Beachfront Only team
Carolyn S. from Franklin, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2010 I would suggest a chest of drawers and living room and bathroom storage pieces.Expecially a bathroom vanity.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for your feedback about our 1 bedroom beach bungalow. In order to provide maximum living space we try to keep large pieces of furniture to a mimum - there is a large closet in the bedroom. - the Beachfront Only team
Patricia S. from Escondido, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2010 We rented out 3 units in this complex and had a great time! Loved the little patio area with firering for our b-day bbq and the kids could either play on the grass or down on the sand. These are not the most elegant digs but definitely a great weekend beach getaway spot. We plan on staying here again for sure.
A guest from Kaysville, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2010 We enjoyed our stay immensely. The kids loved running out to the ocean frequently and being able to come in for a warm shower as needed. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the surf each night. The location was perfect for us...we enjoyed being close to the Oceanside pier and marina (to take advantage of having brought our bikes) yet far enough to enjoy a little more seclusion and fewer people. The unit was well stocked with supplies. We were grateful for the binder that gave us a lot of fun ideas of places to visit. The agent we worked with was extremely courteous and personable. I was very impressed with the ease of making the reservation.We left a couple of minor suggestions for improvements on the survey form in the unit, but were very pleased overall. The only thing we would change about our stay would be to have had a little more sunshine during the week of our stay. Thanks for a memorable trip.
Mimi G. from Renton, WA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2010 The bed was horribly uncomfortable!! One side of the bed had a large dip in the mattress from one to many visitors, some of the dishes had left over crusty food on it (off to the store for paper products), it looked like cigarette holes in the sofa pillows which were cleaverly covered by the decorative pillows upon arrival, curb appeal, not very appealing. I mentioned prior to making the reservation that I am very particular and will care for a place as if it were my own, but I didn't feel that our visit was very important. I was afraid to unfold the hide a bed because I did not want to see something that would require us to go elsewhere. I am however very thankful for the steep discount we received because if we paid for the asking rate, I would have been very, very disappointed. Location isn't everything, but keeping my family safe and healthy is. We had a great time although we didn't spend a lot of time at our vacation home, but I don't know if I would choose beach front rentals only as the place to rent from regardless of how nice the place appears because if you can't care for a small place, how would a larger place turn out. The team at beach front rentals were great and very accomodating. If there was a reason for us to use beach front rentals it would be because of the friendly service I received from this group from day one. Thank you, I wish this comment could have been better. I was ready to write a positive one before we even arrived, but this was the end result...
Michael M. from Surprise, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2010 The most beautiful, and memorable experience we have ever had..! We are ready to go back! Thank You so much for everything.
Penny S. from Glendale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2010 We were basically satisfied with the stay. The unit we had was fairly small, but clean. When we went there was some sort of weird ocean storm. The day we got there the beach was sandy right in front of the rental. That night I don't know what happened but the ocean brought in all kinds of small and huge rocks, and the next night as well. This meant that we were unable to enjoy the beach at this location. We had to go else where which was unfortunate, because this was the whole reason we wanted to rent on the ocean front. We also had a problem with the furnace and how to use it, but we finally figured it out. All in all we had a good stay and would probably return again at some point.Thanks!
Ken and Ann R. from Chisago City, Minnesota recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2010 We had a great time here. The staff at Beach Front Only Vacations are very helpful and accessible. A+The beach location is terrific and very close to grocery, Rite Aid and Costco stores. A+The directions given were spot on and we got right to the condo from the airport on a windy,stormy night. A+The door code worked well, however could be more secure.The fire pit and patio area are great, we grilled steaks on the propane grill and met folks from all over the country. A+My only complaint has to be the ocean waves were so close, the sound of waves crashing on the surf kept waking me through the night. A+Angelo's breakfast burriots on 111. A+Carsbad's Fields of Flowers is fabulous. A+Would I stay here again? In a New York Minute.
Jennifer S. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2010 We had a great time on our stay! We found the rental to be clean and the kitchen well equipped. The location was incredible-just a few steps to the beach. I love bringing lots of comforts to the beach so this was awesome!! The rooms were plenty big enough for the kids to be able to play in the evening with their toys. We loved the fire pit and sand box in the common area. I used the laudry one day and found it to be adequate-loved that there was soap and dryer sheets!Some notes that I made were:High tide in March is for most of the later morning and into some of the afternoon. The beach cannot be accessed at that time. We just worked around it. There are other access points north or south. I could see the units being fairly warm during the summer, but in mid-March it would cool right down with the breeze after we came back from a day out. The pull out bed is worn at the end (breaking away from the springs), but my 2 small children had no problem as they didn't reach the end (2 adults might come through!). The property could use some more bars for hanging wet clothes. The bathroom is large;extra bars would make a big difference(even bars that could be set up for hanging). The kitchen could use a small pantry/storage. We ate in all but 1 of our 7 days and it was difficult to store some items. Finally, I would have loved a vacuum to control the tracking in of sand.Very little things--we would stay again!
This unit was very clean and so close to the ocean it was wonderful, the unit does need some work for summer visits and general
Mary H. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2009 The unit itself was charming and clean which was delighful! The staff was so helpful it is second to non. However, the unit was very warm and had no ceiling fans. The only fan was a very small floor fan that did not do to much good. The windows did not slide well and did not lock but they did provide the vice locks for most of the windows. Many units had screen doors, this unit did not so you had to open both doors to get air in the unit and people would look in as they were walking by. There was only the one TV in the living room and it was very small along with only a couch and no other places for a person to sit. Regardless, I would encourage people to use this rental company, they are so great. They took the time to explain the rental agreement to me, answered all my questions and were very patient with me. I plan to use them for our next vacation but this time I will look for a unit that has air or at least ceiling fans and screen doors.
Position is really beautiful, just in front of the sea. the carpet in the living room was dirty and the property need and additi
Barbara P. from Scottsdale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2009 The location is really nice, only the sound of the sea during the night.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you sharing your experience staying at our beach bungalows! We're sorry to hear the carpet was not up to our standards - we strive to shampoo the carpets as often as possible between guest stays. - the Beachfront Only team
Mary R. from Rancho Cucamoga, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2009 Our family really enjoyed staying at the charming bungalow in Oceanside. It was very clean and we had everything that we needed to make our stay pleasant. I loved the fact that the beach was so close and the common area was great. I didn't want to leave to come home!
Donna G. from Mesa, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2009 the unit needed ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room, during the day it got very stuffy and hot or even a wall unit air conditioner, the air wasnt circulating enough.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for your feedback. Usually the summer breeze is all you need - however we're glad to provide fans for warm summer days - the Beachfront Only team
A guest from Sacramento, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009 the location was great. the online pictures were misleading to what the place looked like inside . i was expecting a little better looking place on the inside . the shower stall was dingy and horrible. you couldnot read the numbers on the oven dial, i tried baking a pie one night and had to do it by guessing. it got soo hot in teh daytime and there was no ventilation in teh place. the kitchen was well stocked dishes etc wise. i loved the proximity to the beach
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Glad to hear you like the location at the beach! It's unique to still find one bedroom properties right on the beach in S California. We have completely gone through the bungalows with new paint, flooring and appliances as needed. Fans are provided in the units for warm summer days - we'd love to have you join us again - the Beachfront Only team
Becky and Jeff B. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in July, 2009 We had a great time while we were waiting to upgrade to 823A. Accomodations were ok but mainly it was the location that we liked. We would probably not rent this unit for a lengthy stay.
A guest from Chandler, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2009 Great location steps from the beach. Units were clean and well taken care of. My brother and I, along with our families, helped our parents celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. We rented units 3 and 4. My parents styed in the one-bedroom, and the other two families stayed in the two-bedroom. (Can't remember which unit number is which.) Interior of unit was fine. Be aware that the units face right on the dead-end of a street with public beach access. So there will be a fair amount of foot traffic near your front door. If you like meeting other people, you will have the opportunity. Regardless, you will spend most of your time on the beach. Oceanside Pier is a nice walk to the north.
Amanda J. from Queen Creek, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2009 We had a wonderful time! It was nice to hear the ocean at night! The rentals are older but quaint! We met up with Nanci from Beach Front and she was so sweet and helpful! Thank you for everything!
Mona J. from Scottsdale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2008 Our 2nd visit. Just as wonderful as the 1st. Knowing that these small units will be torn down and rebuilt, we hope ther will be more smaller units available for future use...for those of us who don't have a big family. Thanks again for helping to create a wonderful memory.
Maria G. from Las Vegas, NV does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2008 The look of these buildings from the outside is a "sore thumb". They are surrounded by much nicer buildings. The condition of the shower in the bathroom was like being in a 3rd world country. Yuck!The furniture (bed, couch, tables and chairs) were typical motel stuff. They have torn up half of the units and this is another eye sore. The only saving grace is the location, on the beach for some of the units. I will not stay here again but look forward to what is being built on the other half. I also felt that the management company should have been more unfront about how old these look!
Property Manager Response:
We are going through reviews and wanted to give you an update. All of the 835 units have been redone, interior and exterior, with new paint, carpet, crown molding, and kitchen counters, and there has also been a a communal area added with lawn, patio, gas barbecue and fire-ring. If you ever are thinking of a beach vacation again, I invite you to check out our new properties and perhaps consider us again. We apologize your stay wasn't all that it should have been the first time around. Warm regards, Beachfront Only.
Roger W. from Joshua Tree, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2008 Excellent location and priced right. The only issue was low water pressure one evening. Most likely a city water issue.
Harry R. from Bahama, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2008 Fix the sliding glass door.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for bringing the issue with the door to our attention during your stay - it has been repaired - the Beachfront Only Team
