“Far Exceeded Our Expectations”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Did you ever wish you had a friend with a house near the beach? Well now you do! Carl and Kim M. have the most wonderful bungalow just a few blocks from the beach and are the most gracious hosts you might ever meet.

Their hospitality began weeks before our arrival with excellent communication. Not only were all of my messages answered promptly, they also provided detailed instructions and tips on just about anything you might need during your stay.

The bungalow was better than described as it was much larger than we expected. There were 9 of us ( 4 adults, 4 teenagers, and an infant) and everyone had more than enough space to spread out.

Carl and Kim provided almost everything we needed except for food. The kitchen was fully stocked as were the linen and supply cabinets. Having a full size washer and dryer was also very helpful.

The house was spotless and the furniture well kept and comfortable. If I could have packed the big blue chair in the living room in my suitcase, I would have taken it home with me!

The girls spent most evenings watching movies on HBO while the boys took full advantage of the free wifi by watching YouTube videos or playing "Hearthstone" on their laptops. (I did not test the internet connection speed, but no one complained of any slowness and they always complain if it's slow.)

The neighborhood was nice and quiet. We also enjoyed being able to park our cars in the driveway instead of fighting for spaces in a hotel parking lot.

Restaurants, shops, and the beach were all within walking distance. I must confess, the walk to the beach was a bit longer than we expected, but that was because we had to haul 3 tents, 8 chairs, 5 boogie boards, an ice chest, and other items to the beach. Had our load been lighter the walk would not have been a problem at all.

The day of our departure I had a few questions. I sent a text to the number they provided and received a response and almost immediately.

Everyone agreed this was the best family vacation EVER! So thank you Carl and Kim for making me look like a hero to my family!

We hope to be back again next year, if not sooner!

“Cozy, beautiful beach house!”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I live in Oceanside and decided on a vacation rental simply to host my birthday dinner at. My condo is too small to host a gathering and this house had plenty of room! Interior decor is stylish, crisp, clean, and they had just about everything we needed there at the house. The booking was simple, the instructions were straight forward and we all had a wonderful time. The neighbors were sweet and brought us oranges and wished me a happy birthday, it is a nice quiet neighborhood just a couple of blocks from the sand. A great place to gather the family!

“Great cottage close to the beach.”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Our family recently spent several days in Oceanside to attend a wedding. With 6 adults, 2 couples and 2 singles, in our group, we found this home very comfortable. Everyone had a private space and 3 bathrooms were very welcome. We all enjoyed the updated, well-stocked kitchen. The beach was an easy 10-15 minute walk from the house. The only complaint would be with the bed in the master bedroom which creaked excessively. We would definitely recommend this home for a quiet get-a-way close to the beach.

“Great family getaway!”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We loved our stay at Beach Close Cozy Home! It was a bit of a walk to the beach with two strollers and a wagon loaded with beach gear but the accommodations were great. The house is well stocked with everything you need and we enjoyed the extra room provided by the breezeway and deck. Definitely plan to go back! If you walk to the beach definitely take Nevada to Mission and don't try walking straight down through the train terminal.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My family stayed at the cozy beach home on July 17 thru the 19th and it was an absolutely awesome experience! The home was very clean and spacious, it was close to the beach, restaurants and night life. I felt like we were right around the corner from Lego Land. Everything we needed was in the house, towels, shampoo, everything that a hotel would provide but much more! The only thing I would have like was fans in every room, the whether was a little moist because of the storm so opening the doors & windows allowed so many bugs to come into the house. Other than that it was an awesome adventure, my family is planning to stay again in October! Thanks Jennifer
