Very roomy and nice open floor plan. Well decorated and very clean.
Kari J. Nov 2022
This location looks exactly like the photos & the check-in/check-out process was so easy! Beach access within walking distance (although we drove because we stayed in the fall & it was chilly).
Michelle C. Oct 2022
We had such a great last min. getaway. This place is super clean and in a great location. Walked to the beach several times and so close to town(s). The neighbors are amazing and this home is truly pet friendly. Thanks for a great time.
Bonnie T. Jun 2022
Our cottage was very clean and comfortable. Just a short walk to the beach. Pacific Beach is a very small town, quiet and restful. We loved the fenced backyard for our 2 dogs.
AMANDA K. Jun 2022
This was the perfect house for our beach getaway! Our family had our young kids and our pug staying for a long weekend. Kitchen had plenty of amenities, everything was very clean and tidy. The firepit in the back was amazing in the evenings and beach access was close enough to walk.
Robert B. Jun 2022
Relaxing stay. Clean home and easy to work with. No stopping to get keys or chat with anyone. Code sent to my phone to open door the morning of our visit. Simply lock the house and check out on the app. Will definitely use again next time.
KELLY G. Jun 2022
Love the house, super clean, fenced back area for dogs and kids with a fire pit, the tub was a great treat, stocked with everything we needed plus more. We could walk or drive to the beach, we always drive to take our things for the day. There is a good uphill walk when leaving if you do want to walk to the beach access road.
Jon and Carol D. Apr 2022
We had a wonderful time, the accommodations were very nice. Bing pet friendly was a real plus for our dogs.
Having a fenced back yard for them meant a lot,they felt right at home. The place was very clean and well furnished.
Thank you for our memories,
Jon and Carol Davison
P.S. one issue we had was the outside garbage can was totally full. The neighbor said garbage pickup was Tuesday, but it hadn't been put out for weeks.

Many beach access points within a 10 min drive. Very clean. User friendly.
Renee L. Mar 2022
Great location in Pacific Beach. Close to everything, but away from the busy part of town. Had all the amenities of home. Walking distance to the ocean, food and the small town of Pacific Beach.
Christine K. Mar 2022
Upon arrival, the TV was broken, the fireplace didn't operate, and the upstairs toilet wasn't functioning. The manager came on the third day and brought us a small 32" TV to replace the widescreen. She showed us how to bypass the on/off button on the fireplace, and didn't address my complaint on the toilet. She left in a hurry. There was not a second TV in the house. There are handyman projects through the house that I wouldn't complain about normally like the broken closet door, lamp, and blinds that don't shut all the way. Cleaning was hit and miss. The throw in the living room was loaded with dog hair. It just needed a trip the the washer real bad. The ocean view was a peek a boo view between two houses across the street and can only be seen from a small area from the loft. There is only a combo dead bolt lock for the door. Would also prefer a lock on the door handle. This may not bother others but I thought it was strange and didn't feel secure. The walls are thin. The neighbors outdoor lights across the street light up the living room and loft bedroom all night. The layout of the house was cute, the heating worked great, shower felt nice, and there was a well stocked kitchen. Loved the location and the quiet neighborhood Don't count on the bbq grill in the backyard like we did. The video and book library were ample; the few games were worn and torn. This is a place where it rains a lot and indoor amenities are important. Local management service was poor. I would not recommend this house. I would recommend the location.
Manager response:
Christine, thank you for the review of your stay. We appreciate you letting us know that there is room for improvement and will follow up with our local team regarding your feedback. We hope to host you for another great stay in the future! Thank you!
Keri B. Feb 2022
This house was clean!
No musty wet smells with chemical cover ups!
I appreciate this above all!
Plus this house had all the homey touches!
Cynthia C. Feb 2022
Well stocked kitchen along with a clean house. Beachy decor was thoughtfully done. Great fireplace.
Heidi W. Feb 2022
this home was very comfortable and a good location, with a small fenced area in the back for my pups.
while this home was not my original choice, there was a last minute issue with my original reservation and Vacasa was wonderful in booking me another place for the same dates and same rate - which i greatly appreciated.
My main issue - and this was not the hosts fault - was that a previous guest did not clean up their dogs mess out back. i called customer service to alert them and then went ahead and cleaned it myself so that my dogs could use the space without stepping in any of it. it was a LOT and pretty gross - but the alternative was worse.
at least we were close to the beach for exercise so they only really needed the backyard first thing in the morning.
hopefully this very inconsiderate guest won’t mean no more dogs allowed at this property.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Heidi. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your home and again, we apologize for the last-minute change to your original reservation. We will address the lack of cleanliness in the backyard of the home. We encourage guests to clean after their dogs so that all future guests can enjoy this space. We look forward to hosting you again!
Janine A. Nov 2021
It's a lovely house, very comfortable, and it had everything I needed for a week-long stay. The neighbors were friendly, and the beautiful beach perfect for daily 5 mile walks. Thanks to the owners for putting a lovely and inviting place together!
Diem-phuong T. Sep 2021
Lovely beach house. Cute decor. We enjoyed our 3 night stay and wish we could stay longer. Well equipped for comfort except for a few missing chairs and lack of functioning lights at both front and back porches. A disinfectant spray bottle would be appreciated. Nice selection of music, movies and books!
Manager response:
Hello, We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your comments about the porch lights and missing chairs along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!
Martin B. Aug 2021
Beautiful house. Peaceful neighborhood. Close to the beach and town. We had a great time.
Timothy O. Aug 2021
A fun little house close to the beach. A great spot to make your base for exploring the coast.
Nerisa M. Jul 2021
The house is lovely! Exactly as pictured. Couches are comfy and nicely decorated in every room. Extra towels and toiletries. Really appreciated that dogs are allowed and that the backyard is fully fenced. The back porch does have a few steps, something to keep in mind if you have small dogs or arthritic dogs. The neighbors were quiet during our stay, which was really nice. Also appreciated that floor fans were there, as we stayed during the PNW heatwave. We ended up leaving early, as it was too hot, the dishwasher was out of commission (although the fresh sponge was really appreciated!) I’m guessing it’s been broken for awhile. We loved that the kitchen was furnished, but having to pre-wash everything was far from ideal. (There were food chunks from previous visitors.) The “book” says that dogs aren’t allowed on the furniture/beds, so that was annoying for both us and the dogs. We didn’t even attempt to walk to the beach, since you have to go back on the main road, no sidewalk. But it’s a very short drive and made it super convenient! All in all, we made some great memories and got the kids out of the house after a crazy year at home. Just don’t go during a heatwave!
Manager response:
Hello Nerisa, we are glad you enjoyed your stay, sorry for the heat wave. We hope to host you again soon!!
Nichole B. Jun 2021
The house was a great homebase for a beach getaway - just a few minute drive to the beach (make sure to have a Discover pass) and a few minutes to Seabrook for restaurants. Our pups loved the fully fenced yard and the house was very comfortable to hang out and cook dinner in after a day at the beach with a well stocked kitchen. The only thing lacking was that the dishwasher seems to be on the fritz so we hand washed our dishes as it didn’t seem sanitary. Hopefully that will be replaced shortly!
Manager response:
Hi, Nichole! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will be happy to hear the dishwasher has been replaced. Thank you!
Bobbi W. May 2021
It was a nice place with great access to beach
Bonnie R. Apr 2021
This cozy house has everything you need to a wonderful beach vacation.
Traci T. Apr 2021
Nice place, but one piece of advice, if you sleep in the up stairs room, bring a sleeping mask. While the A-frame windows are lovely, there are no shades on the upper windows.
Michele B. Apr 2021
Absolutely beautiful. The cottage is so sweet and full of light and warmth. The beds are very comfortable and the jetted tub is awesome.
Sherrie G. Mar 2021
This home was welcoming and calm. A 2 minute drive to the beach, or a 15 minute walk. The fenced in yard for our dog was perfect! The home was thoughtfully prepared with all we needed. Will definitely book here again!
Olivia S. Feb 2021
We loved our experience at this property. The manager was very friendly, and reached out prior to arrival to let us know who to contact during our stay. The home was very clean, and even included a brand new - unopened sponge to use for dishes, which was very thoughtful during the pandemic. We had everything we needed, extra blankets and towels, toiletries in the bathrooms, spices in the pantry, wif-fi and entertainment options (Roku, dvd's, board games, books), dishes and pans, and well laid out instruction book with wonderful recommendations for local spots. We would love to come back.
Tammy S. Nov 2020
Love the fenced in tidy back yard for the fur babies. Easy access to the beach and to Seabrook.
Mimi B. Oct 2020
Great weekend! Cottage is clean and in a good area. We will definitely stay there again!
Joyce L. Sep 2020
We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Wave. It was quiet, clean and comfortable. Would have given five stars, but it is a bit of a walk to the beach. And 4pm check-in is really pushing the limits.
Elizabeth K. Jun 2020
Cute location near the beach. The house was missing some stocked items but within an hour of calling it was resolved. Happy with the location and prompt customer service.
Jared C. Jun 2020
Nice place for a small family to enjoy the beach. A very short drive or not long walk to the beach. Open loft was great!

A couple minor issues I'll discuss with the owner.
Sara W. Jun 2020
Beach house just as pictured. Less than 2 minute drive to beach. Comfy, very clean and dog friendly. Back yard fully fenced with fire pit. The kitchen was a bit tight for more than one person and the kitchenware could use some upgrades. 10 am check out was not the best.
Anne M. Jun 2020
At a time in our world where everything is so uncertain our stay in this beautiful sweet perfectly furnished home that left out not one detail. It was so nice not to have to keep running to the store for something we needed. I know my grandkids will always remember the memories we were able to have here. For the few days we were there life was once again normal. Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home........
Michael-Tommy D. Jun 2020
Very quiet neighborhood, every one there (if they're actually outside) is very friendly. The backyard is small, inviting, has a fire pit, and a grill. Beds are soft, full kitchen too. The jet hot tube upstairs is BIG and very relaxing.
April C. May 2020
This charming home had everything we needed for a family of 4. They have thought of everything, all the amenities were at our fingertips. We made it to the beach everyday with a short drive. This house is in a great location and we intend on staying here again. Thank you
Eric S. May 2020
The place was easy to get to and the neighborhood was quiet and friendly. Very close to several beach location for lots of walking and driftwood hunting. The home was clean, comfortable and had most items needed for cooking and preparing food. The outdoor patio is private and secluded for some outdoor relaxation or the front deck offers the option of enjoying the ocean breeze with a cool drink in hand. Contemplating a return visit in the near future. Thank you.
Michelle J. May 2020
The extra nice touches, the dog bowls, the fire pit, camping chairs , they have thought of everything!
Carolyn M. Nov 2019
Cute cozy house close to the ocean. Night with Windows and an awesome back yard. Really enjoyed our stay
Amanda F. Oct 2019
It was perfect for our cozy fall weekend. It had everything we needed.
It was in a nice and quiet community and not too far the beach
Sharon M. Sep 2019
Clean, exquisitely decorated with all the comforts of home
Michael L. Aug 2019
Very clean and well kept. All needs are provided for and the jacuzzi tub upstairs is extremely nice! Roku remote wasn’t working but we were able to access the Netflix through the DVD player. Overall, very nice place to stay!
Alain A. Aug 2019
Very cozy . Calm and quiet . Clean and enjoyable . Nice neighborhood.
Michael M. Aug 2019
Cozy, clean, great location. Has everything that's needed for a fun stay.
Michelle B. Aug 2019
This house was great! The décor was so cute and everything was clean. We could have lived here without buying much since it had all the household necessities one would buy for a home. The neighborhood is super quiet. The sitting area and fire pit out back are perfect for a quiet evening. I would stay here again.
Kerby A. Aug 2019
Clean and welcoming. Grill and back patio with fire pit was a highlight!
Tana R. Jul 2019
A lovely, clean and convenient getaway. Will definitely stay there again!
Jenna A. Apr 2019
This cottage is great especially if you have a dog. Fenced in back yard with fire pit, walking distance to the beach. Cozy accommodations that don’t break the bank!
Daunita H. Apr 2019
It was a really cute little place. Not as close to the beach as I thought from the description and it's kind of a stretch to sleep six. Everything was very clean and we enjoyed it a lot.
Justyna K. Apr 2019
We had a great stay at the cottage, it’s stocked with everything you’d need, even has a washer and dryer. Bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the short distance to the beach.
Jaime J. Apr 2019
great location and very nice house!
Gabriella S. Feb 2019
My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary at this place and we enjoyed it very much. Very well located, clean and comfortable place. Easy access to the beach and town. Dog friendly and the fenced yard makes it easy. Loved the jet tub and the fire-pit in the yard. I would love to go back!
