  • Garrett Leyenaar

    I was really excited to spend a week on the beach and the condo did not disappoint! I loved the pool/spa, ping pong tables, pool table, and jumping in the ocean each morning. The condo itself was extremely comfortable, clean and close to everything in Oceanside, which was perfect! I will definitely be renting this unit again, thanks for your hospitality!

    Everybody was so excited when we start planning this vacation and we became more excited as soon as we enter this village.  Everything is amazing and all the staff is very nice.  Our favorite part of this vacation is this beautiful condo (C209).  This condo is so gorgeous and it has everything that we need.  We can’t wait to come back and stay longer next time.

  • Bev and Gary Dean

    Thank you for renting your condo to us.  It has been a wonderful 30 days.  Will miss coffee on the patio in the morning.  the condo is in extremely good shape.  That plus the overall excellent facility and location was all that we could have expected.  Now we get to return to Tucson with a big smile on our faces but with some hesitation as it will be over 108 degrees on Sunday.  Hope to see you next year if not sooner.  Thanks!

    I can’t wait to bring my husband back to C209 – It was such a busy 4 days in Escondido, but so nice to come home each night to beautiful comfort.  You did this right.  My grandkids came and swam on Saturday and now my grandaughter (9) wants to come back for her BD family party in August:).  Thank You!

  • The Strebels

    Your welcome note in this booklet and your call made us right away feel at home far away from home. And all the little big extras and guides your unit offers show your generosity. then we would like to thank you once more for driving down here from San Clemente to see us when there was the blackout and sharing the evening with us and bringing the bottle of wine to boot! This is really the place for a relaxed, fabulous vacation! Should you and your family ever travel to Switzerland, please let us know!

    Our kids enjoyed being so close to the beach. the place is nice and comfortable. Was nice to have all the beach towels and buckets provided. Having a fully stocked kitchen was superb.

  • Chris

    I can’t imagine having found a better place to stay! you have a tropical paradise. I couldn’t wait to get up every morning and take a walk on the sand. The weather has been perfect, except for the day it was 114 deg inland and I was at Lake Poway that day!! Love the harbor next door. Walked over there a couple times. I wish my convention was going to be close by next year too, but they moved it to Temecula:(. OH well, I will highly recommend this place to anyone i know who’s heading down this way.

    Chris, — September 2010

  • Matta Family

    We had a great time. The boys really enjoyed the flat screen and surround sound – but not too much! I enjoyed the personal touches of the condo. It made me feel part of the family. Good ole C209 is on our list to come back to. this was a a trip that, I hope, Steven and his friends will always remember. thanks for helping with that! Next time i’ll remember to bring hot sauce and salsa with me.

    This vacation was a monumental experience for me. I’d take up this entire book if I tried to explain, but I will at least thank you for providing such a beautiful place for us to stay. This trip ended up being so much more than I had even hoped for. It was just what we needed. I especially appreciated the check in call.

    Enjoyed your condo. Clean and restful. Wish the weather had been a bit warmer. Was able to wet our feet at the beach yesterday and today. Wish we had more time to stay in the warm S. CA sun. Everything we needed was here except a calendar. Hope to come next vacation.

    Linda and Dean, Casper, WY — December 2008
  • K Hunt

    Thank You! Your place is absolutely marvelous. From the moment we stepped through the door, it felt as if we were in our own home… comfortable…like an old glove. We like what you’ve done to upgrade the unit. I like all the granite. i have it at home. I also like all the lighting in your condo. Very nicely done!

  • Jordan and Dylan

    Thank you fro everything you did for us! We really had a great time in CA. Especially jet skiing with you and cousin Chelsea! It was really, really fun.

    Jordan and Dylan, — June 2008

My husband and i had perfect weather with sunny skies most of the week and are able to go back to AZ with nice California tans and memories. Thanks so much!

  • E & C Rhodes and Girls

    WE have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at NCV. the access to the beach was great. We enjoyed going during all times of the day and evenings. Your condo is so nice, with many “homey” touches. We especially appreciated the “key shelf” which we put to good use and saved us from hunting for keys! One suggestion for the HOA: Fitness Center could use some newer and more equipment (Note – this was totally upgraded and expanded in 2011). We all feel relaxed and rested. The weather was perfect. We appreciate everything you made available to us here this week.

    E & C Rhodes and Girls, Denver, CO

  • J, R, T, & C Fuson

    WE had the best time! the view was wonderful and the condo was beautiful! You have doe a great job at creating a relaxing and hassle free experience that you cannot find when staying at a hotel. My two boys were overwhelmed with joy and excitement a the condo, Sea World, hot hot tub, and most importantly, the beach! It was so nice to get out of the heat and to really “detox”! this was the first real vacation that our family has taken together, so thank you!

  • L. & C. Thomason

    All of the things that you did to make our apartment seem like a home were very appreciated. I can think of nothing that was overlooked. In fact we felt guilty not changing the bed linens ourselves! PS – The bread pudding with brandy sauce at the Jolly Rodger is unbelievable. Expensive if you have kids, but their clam chowder is excellent too.

    L. & C. Thomason, — June 2006
  • A. & B. Gunn

    Thank you so very much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful Condo! We had such a great time here in Oceanside.

    This was our first Thanksgiving here and I must say, one of your best!! No more camping trips to the beach for me! My kids actually didn’t want to leave your cozy condo, except to swim, use the Jacuzzi, or walk to the harbor for ice cream. I am already looking forward to next summer

    J. Samarin, Whittier, CA — November 2005
  • K. Haines

    Your condo feels like home – the furniture, the photos, and your child friendly amenities were just what we needed to start our month long visit with family and friends. Our son had his first beach and pool experience here and loved them both. Your information about the area was perfect. We used it many times.

    K. Haines, British Columbia, CANADA — April 2005
  • Mark, Kate and kids

    The second time around was even better than the first. Thanks for letting us enjoy your condo again. We sure do love it here!! The rainy weather didn’t stop us one bit. We had so much fun in the ocean, rain and all. WE can’t wait to come back.

    This rates right up there on top for one of our family vacations! Not only did we get to enjoy your wonderful condo, but we also loved spending time with great friends. The girls loved theh beach and everything about California. They can’t wait to go back to school and tell their friends all about their first trip to CA. As we go to bed tonight we all have smiles on our faces :).

  • Rich & Heather

    This was just the place we were looking for and it is in such very, very nice condition that we felt overwhelmed by its niceness. It was a great contrast to our place in the highlands of Scotland and we definitely plan to be back.

    Rich & Heather, Scotland — October 2003
  • Michael & Margarethe

    Your beach get-away condo is exactly the escape we were looking for – thank you so much. We enjoyed exploring downtown Oceanside, the marina and funky stores which were all within walking distance. A stay at the Sandri beach condo should be mandatory for anyone hoping to “de-tox” from the rigors and stresses of S. County life!!

  • Diane & Chris

    To think I was somewhat reluctant to getting this on the internet. heard some terrible stories, yet it seemed the right thing to do. I walk in and I’m amazed! Amazed that you would share such a beautiful home with strangers. Thank You!

  • Bonnie, David, Brianna & Janelle

    Wow, we can’t believe the week is over already. We have so enjoyed both your condo and the area. The highlight for us was the boogie boarding. It was our first time and we had a blast! We will take home many wonderful memories to recall during our cold winter evenings in Calgary.
