"Never Stay Here
This was the worst experience ever. Only stay here if you don't mind being watched on camera by the owner and you want to wear a wristband while you are there so the owner can more easily see you on camera. I would have never have agreed to renting this property if I would have known I was being watched day in day out. I was also told when picking up the keys the owner is very particular and gets very angry if you don't wear the wristband even toddlers need to wear it. Why would anyone ever want to go on vacation to stay at a place that is recording your every move. I felt so uncomfortable staying at this place and would have cancelled if it was just me but my family friend was meeting me there and everything else was booked because I did ask for another location after hearing we were being recorded."

"July Birthday
Most everything was great. Very Clean and easy to get keys. Two items - Upper east door handle is broken so we did not use it - also A/C in lower level was not cooling very well. It was very hot outside that is to be expected be thought. Would rent it again in cooler season. "

"A whale of a tale it was
At check in we had to wait for the key to be delivered to Oceano office. This is a beautiful house, with phenomenal views! Although great views from all the windows, EVERY SINGLE window, door, and even the roof leaked after it rained. The house flooded, and there was no mop for us to clean it. We had to use every towel in the house(and our beach towels) to stop water from coming in, and to mop what had already entered. We had to sweep water off the balcony, because it was pouring into the home. Leak over kitchen counter ruined some of our food, and we had no clean towels for the rest of our trip(no access to laundry). There is a restroom sized trash can for your trash, so bring lots of your own trash bags. Electricity went out almost 3 hours before we were to check out, so we had to clean and pack with no air flow, and we couldn't make breakfast since the stove is electric. When we told Oceano of the problems we had, they did not offer any reimbursement or discounts.Overall the house is gorgeous, but a number of inconveniences made it not worth the price we paid. "

"Nice Place to Stay
Beautiful house and loved that every bedroom had its own bathroom. Beautiful view from upstairs of the water. Downside is no access to the beach from the upstairs balcony, but inside stairs are easily accessed. "

"Excellent as usual !
We have been renting this place every year for more than 10 years. It is the best ! Always clean and well maintained."

"So beautiful
This house was so enormous & beautiful. The only thing was, it says it’s a 4 bedroom but the 4th bedroom is a sitting room down stairs that has a door & own bathroom with sofas that you can use a pull out bed. Other then that it was so nice. It was probably one of the nicest places we have stayed at. We will for sure rent this house again. Also it did take them a few weeks to return our deposit."

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful house with my family! It is spectacularly situated on a gorgeous beach. The rooms are perfect and it is fantastic for a rental. No issues whatsoever."

"Review of " Whale of a Tale"
My only complaint was that the house is described as a four bedroom when one of the bedrooms was really a family room with TV and only a very uncomfortable pullout couch. "

"A whale of a good time!
We love this vacation rental. This was our third time staying at this home. The dining area and main living area have gorgeous views. The beach area can't be beat. The property management really should have the wi-fi instructions at the house so you don't have to call and get them. The mattresses aren't the most comfortable and bedding could be updateda That being said we always love our time here and Pete has the best breakfast burritos and homemade tortillas. "

"Girls yearly getaway
This is the 3rd time we have rented this house other 2 times under other womans names this year i rented it. We enjoy the amount of living space the house offers. Only problem we had was plastic clip broke on shower head in main bathroom 1st day but we made it work no need to bother rental about it. Place was recently painted looked very nice."

"Fun Stay
Our stay was great. The house is nice and spacious. The kitchen is big and the dinning room table has great views of the ocean. The top patio is great as well and you can see the dolphins in the morning. With no wifi I wouldn't stay longer than a long weekend since I would not be able to stay connected to work. Overall fun stay at a place that is right on the beach, easy to get to and close to town. "

"Great Vacation!
Great place! Clean, nice beach, great location. Highly recommend!"

"Nice vacation
Overall we had a great vacation. The Good: 3 bedrooms with own bathroom; fourth "bedroom" had fold-out couch (not so good) but also had its own bathroom; great views, huge entry and living room area, mostly well-equipped kitchen, nice dining area with beautiful views, clean, beach front, heating worked great (on cold nights)-
Not so good: overall "dated" furnishings; living room huge but not very user friendly (had a tile "coffee table" in shape of tale of whale; very nice but not very practical); not sufficient kitchen counter space; only one large TV in the 4th bedroom with not sufficient seating; most linens (sheets, pillows, etc) need replacements; no mop! One night it rained pretty hard and water seeped in various areas and had nothing to mop with-contacted Oceano via phone call and email (no answer on either one), had to use bath towels. Wi-fi available but weak; had to call Oceano to get password info (should be available upon arrival).

Overall, I would recommend to a friend, but with reservations. I believe that there are probably better properties for the price in Las Conchas.

"Perfect location, spacious and amazing views!
This house looks better in person than the pictures! The views are just amazing. The house is super spacious and afforded much privacy for my family! Cannot wait to go back. Thank you!!"

"fall break at Whale of a Tail
We stayed for 4 nights with three adults and three kids. The home was clean and in good condition. Unfortunately we discovered when we arrived we did not have access to the washer and dryer, and there was no WiFi. This is something we were accustomed to with other rentals in the area. Otherwise the stay went well, and the office was nice enough to give us a fresh set of towels after a couple nights."

The house was nice and super clean the only bad part of the house is the Bushes it takes a little bit of view and it doesn't look as great but besides that everything was excellent

"Nice Place...trouble with getting deposit back
The rental was nice. It was clean and it accommodated our party. The issue is that I have not received my deposit back. We rented in June 2016 and we were told our deposit would be refunded within 2 weeks. I called Oceano the beginning of August and spoke to Jose who said he would release my deposit $250 and it should be in my account within 5 business days. We are now in the month of September and still no deposit. I have called Oceano Beach Home Rentals and their phone rings without any answer. I'm shocked that I have to chase my deposit when this has never happened before. I hope to hear from Oceano soon and they refund my deposit since we left the home clean and kept our end of the bargain. I know they have had a number of staff changes and I hope this was an error since we have had great experiences in the past renting from Oceano."

"Coming back next year!
We really liked the house and we are sure coming back next year! I read the reviews and was kind of scared of people said, but the beach is not that far from the house, yeah you have to walk a little bit to get down to the beach it was not a problem! The "4th room" with the sofa bed was not as bad, the people who slept there didn't complain about it at all, plus the view is awesome to weak up too. The property was clean, we always had water even tho they warned us about. It did have a good sound system but i would off wished it was upgraded to connect a an AUX cable or connect through bluetooth. But other then that we loved the location and the house! We are sure coming back pretty soon!"

"whale of tale
was very clean, very nice, but very cold upstairs, en very hot downstairs, I think something is wrong with the A/C, , we move the temperature, for the second night was Little better downstairs, but freezing upstairs."

"I definitely give them an A, they were very helpful
Our experience was so awesome we can't wait to go back. Very clean beautiful place to stay. Only thing I can suggest is cleaner backyard, bushes make it difficult to hang out there, but overall it was an outstanding experience.."

"Whale of a Tale is awesome
This is a great house, perfect location on the beach, good sleeping quarters, lovely deck and lots of windows for view of sea, clean, great customer service. We bob in the sea in inner tubes and buy shrimp in town and dine at the house."

"Beautiful Beachfront Home!
The house was great, we were satisfied with all amenities, location, price and everything the house had to offer. The walk to the ocean was a little far from the house but overall it was a great vacation!! We would definitely stay there again."

"Beautiful home with fantastic panoramic views.
I have rented many home at Las Conchas and this is one of my favorite four bedroom rentals. The great room was huge and had excellent views of the beach and sea. The dining area and master bedroom views were equally spectacular. The only disappointment was that the forth bedroom offered a couch that converted to a queen size bed. The bed was very uncomfortable and would have much preferred a regular queen or king bed instead of the convertible couch. If I should come back to this home I would definitely bring along a blow up mattress for better comfort. I would recommend this home but be aware of the convertible couch, Ouch! "

"rocky point
great house -only problem was 4th bedroom is really a den with fold out bed and only tv-which made it hard for watching football and baseball playoffs as a group unless you kicked the out the bedromm users to use the tv-0ceano was great responding to one very small problem"

"Whale of a Tale 2016
Wonderful house!! have stayed here 3 years in a row. Love it and had a whale of a tale time! slight sewer smell in ground floor bedroom.
would also be nice if the stereo system was upgraded so that an ipod can be used. speakers could be replaced also. Very nice touch having a bag of ice and chilled glasses in the freezer upon arrival. Awesome stay! Thank you"

"Great ocean view
The home needs updating but was nice. It should not be advertised as a 4 bedroom as the hide-a-bed is bent and not fit to sleep on. All other bedrooms were fine. The location was great."
