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!

A guest from Holly Springs, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2016 The unit and location was overall nice, unfortunately the first morning we woke up there (we were only there for 2 days), a backhoe was doing work in the common area right outside of our units therefore, sleeping in past 8:00 am was out of the question. There were also children staying in one of the units that would ride up and down the walkway which was really a bit of a distractionew when my husband and I wanted quiet, peaceful time to relax during our honey moon.
Greg T. from Glendale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2016 Overall wonderful and I plan on returning. would've liked more storage space for groceries but was able to deal with it. This is advertised as sleeping 4---only if the small table is moved outside and the people in the bedroom jump over the fold out sofa/bed to get to the bathroom or to the exit. Glad it was just me; no way that place could comfortably or safely sleep four. Other than those two minor issues the place was wonderful.
Marta B. from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2016 My two daughters (17 & 21)and I stayed here and were pleasantly surprised at how quaint and welcoming our stay was. This house met our needs and we were very pleased with it. This is not the kind of house to host events at, but it served our needs for a weekend get away. I paid for early check in but the code wasn't programmed. They responded quickly and I was offered a late checkout on Monday, but that didn't me-I had to leave Sunday afternoon. A discount on my stay would be nice-we will see if I receive one.
Ramon G. from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2016 It was amazing! My family and I had a great time and the property made it even better. Parking was a little bit of an issue. Not a reason not to rent.
Hannah H. from Provo, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2016 This little condo is perfect for a quiet, beautiful stay at the beach. I had only 3 issues during our 5 day stay and they were: 1-that the wifi was patchy at times (my husband needed to work for an hour each day, and it was sometimes frustrating to use) 2-The beach is actually about 1/2 a mile away (there is a rocky shore 50 feet from the doors of the apartments, so the waves sound amazing, but swimmable water is about a 1/2 mile from the apartments) 3-worst of all, the temperature regulator in the oven didn't work, so the first several times we tried to cook, the food completely burned up in less than 10 minutes. Overall, maintenance was helpful, kitchen well stocked, parking isn't too much of a hassle and the location is phenomenal for the price (we paid $125 per night for 5 weeknights) and we plan to return
Dana M. from Chandler, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 We found the cottage to be all we expected. Cute, clean, convenient and right on the ocean. We were very pleased and hope to stay there again. The only negative was on three nights of our four night stay, transients/homeless did come up from the beach and sleep on the deck near the fire pit. This resulted in our having to cut our time short around the fire pit and move inside. They left trash and old food. The property should have maintenance come by and clean up each morning.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We have ordered no trespassing signs specific for our beachfront rentals, and have also contacted the city requesting additional patrolling at this location. Please contact us during your stay so we can assist with these issues promptly. ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Yuma, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2016 We had a wonderful time in Oceanside. The unit was clean and had all the amenities we needed. The beach directly out front of the units was very small when the tide was out and there was no beach out front when the tide was in. Lots of surfers to watch throughout the day. We rode our bikes everywhere we went or walked. The common area was a great place to read, relax and enjoy the view. We would recommend this location to anyone looking to relax by the beach.
A guest from Lake elsinore, California does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2016 I left a written complaint in our room. I hope housekeeping shared it with you. Needless to say, we were very disappointed in the room. It smelled terrible in our room. Very sour. We purchased a candle, put a sheet over the couch and wiped down the floors. It helped some, but didn't get rid of the smell entirely. The sour smell was aweful. Could have been the couch from body oder or a smelly sour mop that was used to clean floors. Totally ruined the moment. The outdoor grill was filthy as well. It looked like food had been sitting on it for days with a beer can thrown inside. We went and purchased our own to use. Location was fantastic but for the cost of the room, there shouldn't had been an oder in the room. There were also cockroaches in bathroom.
Johnny V. from Midland, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2016 Had a great time! The bungalow was very nice and clean on our arrival. Everything was in walking distace (shopping, eating). Really enjoyed walking my two pups along the strand every morning. My neighbors were very friendly. This was my first trip to California...the ocean was overwhelming...being from Texas...beautiful sunsets from the common area.Planning on coming back soon.
Andrea E. from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 Very relaxing, fun time at this location. Love the common area with fire pit and lounge chairs right at the beach! Our unit was small for two adults and two kids, so it helped to have the common area available for playing games, eating, hanging out. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but very nice on the inside.
Daniel J. from STANWOOD, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2016 As for the property itself, it's in a great location and is a nice unit for two people. I wouldn't recommend it for four.As for BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals, they're great to work with. As with any trip, not everything is going to go perfectly. When I did have a concern and brought it to BeachFront's attention, they responded swiftly and professionally. They went out of their way to take care of us. I will definitely rent from them in the future.
Suzanne D. from Napa, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 The location was perfect. The room was super tiny but very clean and had everything we needed and more. Sandpit for the kids right out front was great for our daughter. I would definitely stay here again.
Greg S. from Jackson, Wyoming recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in February, 2016 Although the unit is a little small it worked out exceedingly well for us. My wife was with me for the first 2 weeks, another couple visited for a weekend and then my son was with me for my last week. It was all we needed. We loved the court yard area and used the barbecue many times. It was just right. Excellent stay!!
john H. from moreno valley, California does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 it was a nice stay.....but the billing was very decietful w/ $75 for cleaning, 35 insurance, when we were told the room would only be 120 something, plus tax of course...too much $ for the unit
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hello John, thank you for your review. We definitely do not intent to be deceitful with our rates and charges - before booking and putting in your credit card info, all the charges are listed out and part of the agreement. The fees can definitely add up when you have a 2 night stay, but the cleaning and damage waiver stay the same, whether the stay is 2 nights or 2 weeks. ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Greg R. from Kingman, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 Great location, beautiful view, clean, but a little small especially if you have larger dogs. Would stay again but will get a larger unit next time
A guest from OCEANSIDE, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 I would not stay here again. The living room is so small, when you open the sofa you can't get to the bathroom. The worst part is the smell. There is a stench that comes and goes from the toilet. The location is ok. The view from the shared patio is good. It is hard to get to the beach.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for the review, and we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay more. The bungalows are small - if you want something more spacious, we do have larger 1 bedrooms available. We have replaced the pipes, which will take care of the smell. ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Flagstaff, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 We stayed here with our grandparents (we were in an adjacent cottage). This was perfect for them, as it allowed the easy access to the beach without the crowds. Entry into the cottage was 2-steps with railing to hold onto, which made accessibility a breeze. They truly enjoyed the location, the peace & quiet, and relaxing on the patio. They will be coming back with their friends soon.
A guest from Spring Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 The cottage is in a great location and super cute, but very small. I would only recommend 2 people to this place.
A guest from Pueblo, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2015 Came to this property for an anniversary and had an amazing stay. With the beach right out the window and the pier an easy walk away it was a great location not to mention the dolphin sightings in the morning. Just wish the room was a bit bigger or atleast the shower it's a tad cramped and impossible to keep sand off the floor but in the end it was worth it. Definitely plan on coming back.
mairi h. from Rimrock, AZ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 when I walked in to the rental I was hit in the face with a cat litter box that had not been changed in a month, it was disgusting. I called it took 2 days for anyone to attempt to do anything about this and at that end of second day they put an airfreshner.I have stayed here for about 6 years for holidays special events and for nothing because we love it so much, but after this last goaround I am really disappointed and heartbroke. I hope they figure this out one of the people I spoke to told me the bungalows were under new management, I can say there sure is a big difference they need to go back to the old.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hello Mairi, we are so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. We are dog friendly, however we have never been cat friendly, and would not allow a cat inside any of our rentals. Prior to your stay, there was no evidence of a cat in the unit. We did come by and clean a second time for you. Beachfront Only has managed the bungalows for the past several years, and we are always trying to improve, including all the recent upgrades we just put in (new floors, bathrooms, etc). We hope you will give us another chance! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Phoenix, AZ - Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 Property and stay was very pleasant. We liked that the kitchen had all appliances. It was cleaned and cozy. The beach was in walking distance and the pier wasn't to far. Shopping was close. My husband and I had a great stay. ??
Abigail N. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 The bungalow was exactly as described and very clean upon arrival. The kitchen made it super easy to bring snacks for the family. When the sofa couch was pulled out, space got tight but it worked. We were less than a minute walk from the beach, perfect location !! We heard the waves all day long and slept with the windows open. The common area was great for playing and a perfect spot to eat dinner and s'mores. I would go back here again and again.
A guest from Maricopa, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 My husband and I stayed in unit 7 and although it looked like it was remodeled, there where still a few things that could be improved. Here are a few bad and good thingsBad:1. The kitchen cabinets are very old and the kitchen pots and pans need to be updated. since some of them have teflon coating, it is all scratched and as many of us know that is harmful for your health. 2.There is no garbage can in the kitchen which is not ideal if you are planning on cooking while you stay there. 3.the bathroom is very very small. no room to put any of the toiletries and make up. main concern though was the smell in the bathroom. it smelled like sewage. we had to keep the bathroom door shut or the whole unit would be smelly. Good:1. The place was pretty clean. Even though most of the decor was from ikea, it looked cute. :)2. The common area was great! we were able to use the grill and sit by the fire at night. 3. The view was amazing! every morning we had breakfast outside while watching the waves. 4. the location is great. close to shopping center, movie theater and the pier.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for your comments, it always helps us to improve. We have added the missing trash can is back in the kitchen, changed out the pots and pans, and found the source of the smell in the bathroom. All these items have been addressed and we hope to see you back soon to confirm!
Charity L. from Goodlettsville, Tennessee recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 I truly enjoyed my stay with Beachfront Rentals. I had a small 1BR condo right off the beach. It was the perfect size for 1 person, but I wouldn't really recommend it for more than 1 person. It was clean and tidy upon arrival. The kitchen is very tiny, but I ate out most meals so it didn't matter. I loved the public area with the fire pit! And the beach was only a few steps away. I would definitely stay here again.
Candy C. from Safford, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 This is our third trip to BFO. We get the same bungalow and thoroughly enjoy ourselves."Just" enough room to get around and "plenty" of room to come and go-sit in the sun, BBQ, visit around the fire ring with neighbors in the evenings and take all those beach walks until your heart is content. Walks on the pier are geat and so is a burger and shake at Ruby's. The bungalow has every amenity you might want../bring your own plastic wrap, foil and groceries as needed. The restaurants around are great. Make sure you are there on a Thursday so you can take in the downtown Farmers Market in the morning and the street fair in the evening..EVERY THURSDAY. Want more to do just ask and they will help you, we like to go sit and relax. Great place for young, old and familys-pet friendly also. You could not as for a better place for the price and the location. Thank you for your hospitality BFO. We were checked on to make sure all was to our satisfaction, I like that. My husband and I WILL be back. :) I gave a 4 on the properties general condition, they are remodeling many of their units-otherwise great!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for your review! We have now remodeled 5 of the bungalows, and will be completing the rest as they become available! Check out the new photos on our website ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Flagstaff, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 We love this spot. The room is great for our family of four. Very comfortable and the patio is perfect. The beach is just beautiful and the water was warm. We saw dolphins, seals (or sea lions) and even baby star fish. A super trip! This was our SECOND time there and we will be back for a THIRD :)
A guest from La Habra, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 Our experience was great. We took our dogs and didn't have any issues. Beach access and sunset at night was amazing. We will be back. Four reasons for the 4 star overall rating:1. The common trash area was not dumped by maintenance everyday so it was overflowing. It is right next to the sitting area that is pictured in the promotional picture. Too close for comfort.2. Our dogs were not allowed on the beach. 3. No air conditioning. The fans did not do the job. 4. The chairs are not too steerdy. May be time to replace.
Nicole H. from Lady Lake, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 Great time and place. Unit 7 too small for two people, especially if you are expecting company. Overall grounds, very nice. Wanted to be near the ocean and it filled what I wanted. Had a good time, will do it again but will try and rent unit #4.
Steve T. from Mather, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 I feel very lucky to have found such a great place to stay for our Lego-land vacation. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night. The beach and weather were perfect.
A guest from Avondale, AZ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 My family and I stayed here in July 2014. We rented a one bedroom. The view was beautiful. The problem I had with this room was no Air conditioning and the size of the room. We were very hot at night and had a hard time sleeping. The room was much smaller than I thought. The kitchen was so small, I couldn't really cook dinner. I would stay here again if they added an air conditioner to the room. And I would get a larger unit.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for your comments, we have had unusually hot weather recently. There are fans available upon request to add to your unit.
Melissa H. from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2014 Although the room was a little too small for my family of four, everything was clean, tidy and nice. The tide only allowed for a couple of hours of beach time but I suppose that changes throughout the year.
Tiffany H. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 If you are looking for a cozy beachside rental with little frills, this is your place. The convenience of being able to come and go to the beach was well worth it! It was great to sit by the fire at night and watch the dolphins swim by and the sun set into the ocean.
A guest from Fallbrook, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 Pictures are worth a 1,000 words and the pictures only showed the good points, the beach. The condition of the complex was very disapointing. The yard area looked terrible, the fake grass torn up in areas, yellow grass, and just an over all dingy presentation. The room, all though someone did clean it, the bedding and futon were worn and dingy as well. From the pictures I expected another type of lodging accomidations, but my friends and I were sadly disappointed and we ended up not staying there one night. We did stay for sunset the first day and then came back the second day for the beach in the afternoon. It was too dismal to consider sleeping in such a dirty setting. I know I am grateful for the oppertunity and I did appreciated the professional service from the offices of Beachfront. So in regards to my rating location good, management office great! I can tell someone did clean the #7 Bungalow, but it still smelled and carpet was tacky to the touch, bedding very poor condition... so sorry to share this with you as I know you can only do what your budget permits in keeping a property presentable. I'm sure you have other rentals that are in better condition and this is your budget catagory and I'm sure people do enjoy their stay here. I was lead to think it was another type of property through the pictures. No need to display this review as I would only want you to have great business for your company. I did want to be truthful and share what my friends and I felt about the Bungalow stay. Thank you as I did appreciate your time and kind consideration.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Keiko, thank you for your review. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. We have always advertised our beach bungalows as just that - beachy and casual, nothing luxurious. We love having these more "affordable" options so that more people can enjoy staying right on the beach. We will definitely take a look at the furniture and bedding in that specific unit, as we have a standard of quality that we strive to adhere to for all of our properties.
Timica R. from San Marcos, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 My husband and I brought our two boys both (6 & 8). We really enjoyed the gated property. The boys had something to do until the tide went out and the beach sand was visible. I did not like the parking situation (very limited). Close to everything and WONDERFUL views.
Kelly M. from Henrietta, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 Loved the common area, made it super fun for both adults and kids. Fenced in area made it nice too for the little ones. Watching the waves as we had an evening fire was the best! Place was stocked with everything needed. Very happy with the rental and definitely plan on booking again :)
A guest from St. George, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014 It was perfect for our family. There was a group of several families with us all in the same complex. We loved being by the Strand, but not on the Strand. and being so close to the beach was great! We plan on another trip soon.
Christopher B. from Prescott valley, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 I was satisfied with everything except the fact my car was broken into other then that everything was fine
A guest from Glendale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 Beautiful location, literally just steps from beach. Great views. The common area is well kept with several tables and chairs. The gas fire pit was great for the chilly evenings. The cottage was clean and well stocked with kitchen items and paper supplies. Kitchen and bath in apt 7 were very small but suitable for our needs. There is enough space for 2 adults but would be cramped for any additional adults but be ok for family of 4 with 2 small children. Only issue wasthat the refrigerator never really got cold. But we didn't complain to management since we mostly just had drinks with us.
alice t. from twin falls, ID does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2013 this rental was rated for four people but it was so so small; the bedroom was fine but for the "other two there was a small futon sofa. the kitchen was so small nothing could really be cooked there or even simple foods prepared. The bathroom was "airplane small'. Overall I was diapppointed about how limited the space was. Great location on the beach but otherwise very poor experience.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for the review. Our beach bungalows are on the smaller size, and we try and accurately list the square footage on all of the unit pages. #7 is our coziest of our one bedrooms, but we do have 5 others that are a little bit larger and may fit your needs better. ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Flagstaff, Arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 We loved our little beach condo. It was perfect for our family of four. The grassy area and patio were so nice and the view was great. The beach and weather perfect. We are already planning our next stay.
A guest from las vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 This is a perfect location. The beach is just in front of the unite. Be prepare to bring a fan in summer time. The building is old beach cottage and small(our unit#7)we don't mind. The common area is very nice. You can Bar-B-Q(Gas grill), sit around enjoy cool ocean breeze.We love the location. We plan to come back next labor day if can get the bigger unit(#9).You can bring your dog. The common area have a big yard.
James B. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 it was great, but you need fans to cool down a little in the day time. the alarms went off when cooking in stove. need black out draps the door light shine in and hard to sleep.
Elizabeth A. from Rutland, VT recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in May, 2013 This is the perfect location for a lovely getaway: beach, patio, nearby restaurants, and cozy accommodations. We called to ask for more time and the service was topnotch in adding 3 nights to our stay with no hassle at all. Thank you! My husband, our dog, and I had a terrific vacation in P538-7. We don't need more room or fancy frills that we never use at "big" resorts. We just need the sun, sea, surf, sand and each other. Lots of long walks, shells collected and memories formed. We loved having the waves tumble and sweep the shore only steps away and the outdoor shower ready for quick clean ups. My family lives in Oceanside and all visited for a chip 'n dip on the patio. They could be heard exclaiming over our vacation rental: this is an undiscovered gem! My brother wants to use this vacation rental to house visitors to his Oceanside business. We will be back!!!
Great Vacation!!! Location, location, location. A Winner!
LeVeda S. from cave creek, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013 The location was A++++. The unit was very, very small. I would definitely rent again but would choose a larger unit. Loved the location and everyone was so pleasant.
Linda R. from Fergus Falls, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013 We loved Ocenside. Our condo was small, but thats what we choose. We rarely spent time there as it was wonderful weather, and lots to see. Went to church at Calvary Chapel Living Hope which was a very good service. Great vacation.
A guest from Colorado Springs, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in April, 2013 On the beach, laid back with everything you need. Didn't even need a car, biked everywhere. Can't wait to come back.
Cynthia G. from Madera, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2013 The outdoor area was wonderful, especially since our unit didn't have a table in it. The unit was nicely located for our race, we did the half Ironman.
Robert C. from Henderson, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013 My family and I wanted a quick getaway for Spring Break and wanted to stay on the beach. The price was right, the room was the perfect size for us (2 adults, 2 children) and affordable. We will definitely be back.
Gerald G. from Park City, Utah recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2013 We had a great time! The room is small, but very clean and very well equipped excellent for 2 people just don't over pack. The location and accessibility to the waves was unbelievable!!. We had 2 dogs with us having the common area fenced in was perfect. The dogs could play while we sat and watched the surf next to the fire pit. I had great waves right out the front the whole time. Never had to search. I parked my car on Monday didn't touch it until I left. Walked to Dinner. Breakfast. Surf 3 sessions a day so awesome!!!!
Rosita R. from Mesa, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 We always enjoy our stay with you guys, however the unit we got was a little cramped for us. However, the location is amazing and for that we always return. We love beachfrontonly bungalows and never want to leave!!!! Looking forward to our stay in unit 9 :)
Roxann G. from Sandy, Utah recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013 We enjoyed our short stay in the beautiful California sunshine! The beach was perfect and the weather was wonderful. We were a little nervous about parking on the street, but were always able to find a parking place close to our unit and the traffic was not a problem.
Jim F. from Murrieta, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2012 This property is right on the beach with a wonderful fire pit right with beautiful ocean views. So relaxing and private! I would HIGHLY re ommend this property!
A guest from tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2012 The only problem we had was with the party of 21 people renting in the building next to us. They completely took over the green area with dart games etc. Several times we had to stay indoors or be hit by flying darts. They even used our firepit in the evening along with the one provided for their rental unit. instead of their own.

G Hayden G. from Soldotna, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2012 I booked two units for spring break with my grandchildren Where is my deduction for booking the same day as I left?
Christina F. from Roosevelt, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 We visited Oceanside in early October as a reunion of friends. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location and amenities offered. The bungalow was so cute! and the management supplied everything we could possibly need. The property was clean and cozy. The laundry room was a total bonus and the common area was a dream. Our neighbors were all very friendly and Oceanside itself was a very relaxing place to be. Not only will I be recommending Beach Front Only to friends and family but I will definitely be booking another vacation as soon as I can get away! Thank you very, very much for a wonderful vacation experience.
iT WAS A NICE LITTLE PLACE, DEFINEATELY COULD USE AT LEAST 2 FANS
A guest from Mesa, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2012 UNFORTUNATELY THE OCEAN TIDE WAS TOO HIGH THE MAJORITY OF THE DAY, BUT WAS GREAT TO SIT OUT ON THE COMMON AREA.... wE ALSO RODE OUR BIKES EVERYDAY ON THE BEACH,SO NICE. wE MET SOME VERY NICE PEOPLE STAYING THERE. i LOVED IT!
A guest from San Diego, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 Common area was lovely, steps to beach were nearby, boogie boarding was rough but fun. Nice walk to the pier and the sandy beach. As long as we were outside it was great. I had read the advice to bring a fan so we brought a tower fan but it was still too hot in the bedroom.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Sharon: we definitely recommend opening up the windows in the Summer and running the fans to keep the air circulation going. August is one of the hottest times of year to visit, but the Summer of 2012 was a national record heat wave. We hope next year will be nice and sunny but not as hot. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from west Sacramento, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 Other than the locations, which was great, we were very dissatisfied with this property. It is very old, shabby and in much need of repairs and remodeling. The condition was so bad that if I could have gotten our money back I would have left and found another property or a hotel. The furniture was old and used, the kitchen drawers were unhinged and almost fell out when trying to open them. The closets were stuffed with storage items and left very little space for clothing. The floor plans were much smaller than advertised. Bathroom pipes and shower had rust and made it difficult for me to want to shower or use the bathroom. Windows would barely open and screens fell out when trying to open them. Overall, I will never return to this property or with this company and would not recommend this property.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Karen: sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. For your next visit, our reservation team would be happy to work with you to find a property that is a better match of the vision you have for your vacation. ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 The stay at this oceanfront property was wonderful. We loved the space and the access to the beach was perfect. The utilized the outside dining, bbq, and fire pit on a regular basis. The management was great to work with and was responsive to my requests. I would stay here, again, in a heartbeat! Looking forward to our next stay on the CA beaches.
A guest from phoenix, arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2012 We loved this place! We stayed in Cabin 7 with 3 people. It is on the small side, by most people's standards, but if you are going with the mentality that you're at the beach and will be outside most of the time anyway, who cares. It wasn't cramping us and we had a teenager, but that's all personal preference. The mornings here are unbeatable with the windows open and the cool ocean breeze coming in. You can hear the water and when you look out the window, the ocean is right there. The common ground was peaceful and so convenient. It was very nice to be able to grill food right out of the room instead of pack up and drive your stuff down the beach to find an open fire pit and have to deal with wood/matches and a crowd. We fished off the pier, too, which was a blast, and we were successful enough to eat dinner off one days' spoils. The pace here was very comfortable and this ended up being the most relaxing vacation I have ever taken. Gorgeous scenery. We miss it.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Sheena: thank you for the feedback and we hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
George W. from Maple Grove, Minnesota does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 VERY, VERY CLEAN. When we stayed at Beachfront Only two years ago we were in a very nice two bedroom unit because we had other family with us. This year it was only going to be my husband and myself so we decided on a one bedroom. It may have been the only thing open as we booked quite late for summer. The one bedroom was very small with only a couch in the living area and in the bathroom you could hardly turn around, but it did have a shower and was very clean. The TV was in the bedroom, which was okay size and the kitchen had everything you needed but two people could not be in there at the same time. I realize you pay for the beach during the summer, but the unit was quite expensive and not comfortable enough to spend much time there. VERY VERY CLEAN.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for the feedback! For your next visit, you are eligible for a returning customer discount on any property you rent, and if you would like to rent one of the 1-bedrooms with a more open kitchen and front room area, we recommend Bungalows #2, #3 and #9. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from LAS VEGAS, Nevada recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2012 We had a very quiet nice stay at this property. Though a small rental we had only 2 of us and we had no problem making it work. Love the view from the patio. The gas fire pit is a great way to enjoy the ocean even if the evening temperatures are cool.The only reason I gave 4 stars on cleanliness is due to the musty odor of the bathroom, but you have to expect some of that due to proximity of the ocean. Otherwise the property is well kept and the staff who daily clean the outside were very friendly and helpful.
A guest from Mesa, AZ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012 We really enjoyed our stay however, the unit was extremely small. My parents stayed in unit 9 which was 350 sq ft. according to the website. When we were deciding which unit to stay in, unit 7 also said 350 sq ft. so we decided to reserve it. Upon arrival, unit 7 was considerably smaller inside than unit 9. I don't see how they can possibly have the same square footage inside. Luckily, we were able to hang out with other family members in their larger unit and just use ours for sleeping. Overall, we had a great time. The location was awesome and we loved the gas fire pit. My only recommendation would be to update the website description of the property to the correct square footage.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals #7 does seem smaller because the kitchen is in a seperate room, so it doesn't appear to be as open as #9, where the kitchen and living room are connected. We will go in and re-measure to make sure we have the accurate square footage for this property. ~ Thank you for your feedback ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
Donna M. from Troy, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012 We stayed in unit 6 last year and upgraded to 7 this year because of the sofa bed. The sofa bed was horrible and we had to request an air matress (which was what we used in 6). Unit 7 is also smaller than 6. In the future we would go back to 6.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Donna: thank you for the feedback. We have replaced the sofa bed in #7. For your next visit, we recommend Bungalows #2, #3 or #9---they each have a sleeper sofa and more space in the front room. For priority booking, we recommend making a reservation as far in advance as possible. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Gregory, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2012 We love this place. Everything was so perfect for us. We went here for our prehoneymoon. We enjoyed everything about the 4 day stay. We went to Manadaly bay after to get married. That hotel was suppose to be a fancy nice hotel, the stay was terrible, nothing went right, ripp off. We won't be visiting them again but would love to come back to your place many times. Thanks
Josh L. from Heber City, Utah recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2012 Overall had a great time. Only real concern was related to the common area. One day, the space was compleley taken over by another guest having a party. Our kids were not able to enjoy the sandbox and we couldn't access the patio. Another guest was constatntly leaving trash outside on the deck. My wife and I swept and cleaned the common area multiple times in an effort to keep it acceptable for our use. My suggestion would be to more clearly outline the common area rules, including the importance to "clean up after yourself". We had a great time, and will definiley come back.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for the feedback and great idea! We will post a common area sign with rules. And, please note, if you experience these types of issues in the future, we are just a phone call away to help you mediate in these situations. We are an on-site management team and can send a staff member over to assist. We look forward to your next visit! ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Petersburg, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2012 My adult daughter and I had a great time! It had a very relaxing feel, very cozy. It was on the small size but that added to the charm. Great location on the ocean. Lighthouse was the best eatery! San Diego and LA were both a short drive but it was great to come back to out little bungalow. It was a very relaxing place!
Kathleen H. from Lubbock, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2012 Over all things were good. But, if you have a bad back than this is not the place for you. The bed was not very comfortable and the pull out couch was not even good enough for my 8 and 9 year old.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Kathleen: thank you for the feedback. The sofa bed has been replaced. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Denver, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2012 A very deserved break from daily busy routine. Excellent view and loved the property. Definitely recommend for people who love the beaches.
Leah C. from Pacifica, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2012 Lovely spot, perfect for 2 surfers except that the unit was so small (#7), we could not easily store our boards inside. We would definitely try to reserve a larger unit at the most western end, as they seemed to have a larger main room. Thanks for the wonderful weather so that we could enjoy the patio and gas grill and fire pit. That was a true luxury! Our pets appreciated the little lawn. Too bad you are going to build on that site. The small cottages really need this area.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Leah: thank you for the feedback and glad to hear you enjoyed your visit! As surfers, we would recommend unit #2, #3 or #9 to provide you with more space in the front room for your next visit. The property owners are planning on new development at the bungalow location, but we have no construction date set at this time, and hope you can enjoy another visit with us soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
PAUL R. from SHINGLE SPRINGS, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 EXCELLENT IN ALL ASPECTS. YOU DO A GREAT JOB AND WE WILL STAY WITH YOU NEXT TIME WE ARE IN OCEANSIDE. THNX.
A guest from Reno, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2011 Would not be suitable for more than 2 people. No dining space so outdoor patio is important --- along with good weather to enjoy it. 4 tiny rooms. Check the square footage.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Pat: thank you for the feedback--we have a folding table available with two folding chairs--located in the bedroom closet, to provide dining space in the front room. We do not recommend this unit for more than 2 persons, unless the additional person/s are small children. For your next visit, we recommend units #2, #3 or #9 to provide you with more space. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Euel R. from La Luz, NM recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2011 The location was great and very clean rooms. The only problem was the shower handle was loose and hard to control the hot water. Other than that it was a great stay! I would for sure stay here again..
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals The shower handle has been fixed and the hot and cold has been labeled. Thank you for your feedback ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Albuquerque, NM recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 Had a great time! My only complaint is that there were people in the community area who were making a lot of noise past the 10pm quiet time. The person staying next to us asked them to be quiet.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi John: thank you for the feedback and glad to hear you had a great time! Next time, please feel free to call us for assistance if you have a noisy neighbor after 10pm--we are strict about our Good Neighbor policy and the City of Oceanside noise ordinance. If someone is not respecting this policy, we can mediate and remind them that they are subject to a fine. We hope to see you again soon! -The Team at Beachfront Ony
Peggy N. from Glendale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2011 Very cozy, clean. Only complaint is it needed either a larger fan or second fan. The room was very warm
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thanks for the feedback! Larger fans are added during the summer months. More can always be requested as well. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Lalo F. from Redlands, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 If management would check the bongos for invaders that didnt pay for stay there was beach goers that for gourds to drink beer and masse it hearts gor family time
Kyle K. from Mesa, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 The place is small so be prepared for tiny. My only complaints were small things that needed repair and the discomfort of the sofa bed. Even my little kids complained that it was terribly uncomfortable. Otherwise, it was a great stay! My kids have been begging to return!
Debbie P. from Desert Hot Spring, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 alittle disappointed. too small and very limited supplies. tiny fan. blinds not working correctly. only 2 wash rags. called and asked for more and told to find, then call the main office. never heard back. but location is why we have gone so many times. little inconveniences. will probably go back every year if they get a beach back. sandy beach was gone. had to go down the beach to find a place for our towels. etc. beach has eroded..
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Debbie: we apologize for the inconvenience re: towels. There are always supposed to be towels for 4 people in the unit and 4 dish towels/wash rags. If you find any missing, please do not hesitate to call our Operations team for assistance. We hope to see you again soon! -The Team at Beachfront Only
robert r. from vista, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 Well maintained on the inside, but there should be box fans in the rooms for the summer. The rooms were very muggy I had to go out and buy an additional fan in addition to the 6 inch fan that was supplied. No laundry soap was supplied, for the cost there should be some in the rooms. Excellent beach access, shopping near, and nice long beach walks with wife, on clear nights you have great sunsets. And our best treat was seeing dolphins every evening just 50 to 100 feet away as they swam by the surfers.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Robert: thank you for the feedback and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your visit! We have additional fans on hand---please call our Operations team if you need extra. Laundry soap is also provided, but it is located in the laundry room. We hope to see you again soon! ~The team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Saint Charles, Missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 Had a wonderful time. I was a little worried that parking would be an issue since there wasn't assigned parking and we were on a busy beach road, but it turned out not to be a problem at all. I found parking right in front of the property every time.
Wendy P. from Oceanside, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2011 The refrigerator wasn't working and our food spoiled. Also, the shower never had hot water. Other than that we were fine. Just dissapointed about the fridge and shower situation.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Both the refrigerator and shower have been checked and are working fine now. We encourage all of our guests to call us first thing if they notice something wrong so we can get out and fix it right away. Thank you for the feedback!
A guest from Pine Mountain Club, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2011 this cottage was too small and dark for us, We did not enjoy at all & we went home after the first night. we are very disappointed. The pictures look nothing like the actual location!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Shaune Ann: we are sorry to hear you were disappointed with the experience. If you were not happy with which unit you chose, please feel free to call our reservation office for assistance. If there is another Bungalow available for your dates, we would be happy to transfer you to another property, if we have availability. For you r next visit, please count on our friendly reservation team to help you find a property that matches the vision you have for your vacation. We hope to see you again soon! -The Team at Beachfront Only
Teresa J. from Albuquerque, NM recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2011 This was a wonderful place to stay. We could hear the surf in our room as we slept each night, so peaceful. The neighborhood was quiet and clean. The beach was close. The unit we stayed in was small but cozy and fresh. We could have used a spatula and some up-dated frying pans and some grill tools and a lighter. We will be back!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Teresa: thank you for the feedback. We inspect the kitchen inventory regularly and replace worn out items as needed---for your next stay, please feel free to call our Operations team for assistance if you feel something is worn out or missing. There should be a torch (BBQ lighter) and grilling tools in all of our rentals---if yours are missing, definitely let us know and we will be happy to provide replacements. We look forward to welcoming you back! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Anthem, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2011 I had a short getaway weekend at the 835 #7 in Oceanside. I was nervous about it because I had booked it from the internet but it was a great find. The location was perfect and the room was nice and clean. It could probably use a little bit more storage, but other than that, it was perfect.
Smallest Room we've ever stayed in but WONDERFUL!!! Back units/street side are double the size and only 20 more steps to beach.
Richard P. from Desert Hot Spring, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010 Already rebooked! Location 10+!!! Have small kids. Nice play area. But Living Room was too small to open sofa bed. Unbelieveable small. Next time we'll only bring shorts and t-shirts. Great!
A guest from Sparks, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2010 Small, but efficient with a great view and patio area for meals and night time sunsets. Not great beds or too fancy, but perfect if you are looking for a great location and good price. Best part is that the property is on the water and not across the street. Great for kids as the sand is perfect for castles and such! It's definitely a one-of-a-kind place in Oceanside.
Hellen M. from Bronx, NY does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2010 The accommodations were very small. Outside there was not enough tables with umbrellas. Dogs were allowed to pee in the sand where children were playing. I had my door open and dogs came in, the owners were not watching or didn't care. No parking for that amount of money, I was not happy. The person who took my reservation was not helpful and you're still spelling my name wrong. I don't think I would recommend it to friends.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for the feedback and we are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your experience: if there is something that is wrong, please always bring it to our attention for immediate assistance. We apologize if your name was spelled incorrectly on any of the reservation paperwork---this is an easy thing for us to correct, if you let us know. If you booked online, your name actually appears however you filled it out on your reservation. We do not alter the spelling that a guest makes on a booking. With regard to the situation with the dogs: we are definitely not okay with what transpired and if you call our Operations team in these situations, we will be more than happy to mediate. If a guest is not supervising their animals or allowing them to relieve themselves in inappropriate areas, they can be fined. We adhere to a good neighbor policy and it is important to us that all renters are respectful of each other and we want everyone to have a great vacation. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Melinda G. from Edmonds, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 We were fortunate enough to get a unit in July on short notice, and had a wonderful time. A big plus is the courtyard right outside the door where we spent many relaxing hours lounging in the sun or in the shade of an umbrella, playing on the lawn, and sharing s'mores with some other folks we met at the gas firepit. We have stayed at other places in Oceanside, but this is now the only place we stay when we come to southern California!
A guest from San Jacinto, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2010 We had a great time and will definitly be back. A little overpriced for the size of the unit. Weve stayed in Maui and Kauai beachfront 2bd/2bath condos for 110 a nite.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Janine: thank you for the feedback---we do try to price our properties competitively. The holidays and Summer are the most expensive times of year to rent, but if you have date flexibility, earlier in May we have low-season rates. We hope to see you again soon! -The Team at Beachfront Only
Lorraine T. from Corona, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2010 Our only complaint was that we stayed in unit #9 last year and this year in #7. When booking our stay we were told all the one bedrooms were the same size and they are definatley not. The pictures are very deceiving on the actual size as no square footage is disclosed. Other than that our stay was great. Thanks!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Lorraine: we sincerely apologize if there was a miscommunication or a misunderstanding. A less experienced agent made have made an earnest mistake; however, we have since diagrammed the bungalows with square footage for training to ensure each agent knows which units have more space. Glad to have you back and hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Kara C. from Mesa, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2010 The beach rental we stayed at (835 #7) was wonderful for the location and the price. The only main problems we had with it was the shower needed to be replaced, the t.v. was placed in the bedroom so we couldn't watch it in the living room and the house itself smelled badly of mildew. However, they did offer to switch us to a different rental and on my request brought over Lysol to help with the mildew.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hello Kara: Thank you for your feedback. We have replaced the shower in the unit. And, we chose to put the TV for this rental in the bedroom, in the interest of space. The front room has a sleeper sofa, and we would not be able to accommodate a TV stand in the front room with the sleeper sofa open. We do apologize about the mildew smell---we do our best to keep on top of this and make sure our homes are sufficiently aired out. Properties at the beach are subject to a lot of moisture build-up. ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Small and needs updating, but the location makes up for it!
A guest from Sacramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in January, 2010 The location of this unit can't be beat. The front door is about 20 yards from the ocean, and you fall asleep to waves breaking on the seawall every night. The unit was almost spotlessly clean as well. Parking (at least in February) was a non-issue; I never parked more than 2 car lengths from the property entrance. The sofa and bed are quite comfortable.The shower, though it has adequate water pressure and temperature, needed some help--the fiberglass floor was badly damaged and it'd been covered with an anti-slip mat instead of repaired or replaced. The bathroom is very small but functional. The kitchen is also quite small and lacking in counter space, though it does have a rather large refrigerator and a four-burner gas range. Two people barely fit in the kitchen at the same time, though I was in Oceanside on assignment for work, so I probably place a higher value on the kitchen than vacationers would.All in all, a great place for an off-season beachfront vacation. Other than the shower, everything was in great shape and the price was very reasonable.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Joe: thank you for your review and we're so glad to hear you enjoyed your visit! We have fixed the shower and we hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Brad S. from Valley Village, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2009 The bungalow was fantastic. Clean and comfy. We had a problem with the TV but it was fixed within an hour. Everything was just great and we can't wait to come back. Thanks so much.
Robert L. from Santa Ana, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2009 The location of the property was great! However, the place itself was extremely tiny. Also, we assumed it had recently been shampooed, because the carpet and couch were both wet. The property is also in need of a kithchen table, we found that to be a necessity even though I'm not sure where one would fit.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Robert: thank you for your review and the feedback! Per your suggestion, we have placed a folding table and chairs in the closet so you have a place to eat your meals. We found that to be the best solution in the interest of space. We hope to see you again soon! -The Team at Beachfront Only
Patti & John C. from Oklahoma City, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2009 I was born and raised in Oceanside and have only had one other chance before this to go back home. My husband has heard about where I grew up for years. We were so excited to get a rental right on the beach with all the accomadations we needed. Tom and Nancy were fabulous. They even e-mailed us a map of our route there and called to make sure which route we wanted to take. Nancy called to check on us during our stay, which was very thoughtful. Although the quarters were small, they were immaculate. We had everything we needed to cook our own food if we wanted. The courtyard was awesome with the firepit and the lounge chairs. We made some very good friends while we were there. We can't wait until next year so we can visit again. This time we will stay much longer. Thank you Tom and Nancy for the best part of our vacation. We'll be getting in touch with you soon.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back! -The Team at Beachfront Only
Markos M. from Vista, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2009 loved it ..just alot money ......will do it again

Trevor M. from Clawson, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2009 The only thing I was not happy with was My son graduated from the Marine Corp and came to stay one night before he flew back and there was no sheets or pillows for the pullout couch (we got that unit for that reason) so he had to sleep on the couch and me on the floor. I cooked him a nice steak dinner but the Basic spices were Basic (salt and pepper) and my wife had to buy a real wine glass none in unit.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Trevor: thank you for the feedback and sorry to hear about the missing inventory--we do inspect our units prior to your arrival and we apologize for the oversight. Please know for your next visit that you can always call our Operations team if you are missing any linens or kitchen inventory. We only provide salt & pepper in the Beach Bungalows due to less space (some of our larger homes have full spice racks). However, there should be four wine glasses in the kitchen cabinets. We hope to see you again soon! -The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Skull Valley, AZ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2008 Thank you for letting us know they were tearing down half the complex the week we stayed.. We had such an enjoyable stay we left 3 days early!!! HOW ABOUT A REFUND!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals We are going through reviews and wanted to give you an update. All demolition and construction in the area has been completed since February. All of the 835 units have also been redone 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.
