    The Matz Family Vacation
    Date of Stay: July 2, 2010
    We had a simply awesome time at the Porter House. We love the comfort of the home..everything you could possibly need is provided..from the bedrooms and baths to the kitchen. And it is so great not to have to bring beach chairs, boogie boards, etc..as even those are all provided. The kids enjoyed the X-Box games, TVs..and we adults enjoyed sitting out on the patio at night engaging in conversation with each other and all the people walking by. The house is large enough that we aren’t on top of each other all the time..and we had 12 people there most of the 2 weeks. One part of our family would come out..and another would leave..for cheer camp, wrestling camp, etc. We love having the washer and dryer..always able to have clean, dry towels for the beach. We are sorry to have to use the air-conditioning at night..tried to leave the windows open..but the engineers on the trains get carried away with their horns at night..would be great if they could be persuaded to just use the flashing lights and bells that are at each crossing..with maybe a “toot” of the horn. We have used the beach house 2 yrs. now..and will be back. Not sure if it will be 2011 as some family members want to take a “family” cruise..so we need to look into that. The city of Oceanside is so charming and “old town”..love the Farmer’s Market on Thurs. morning..went there as a large group and came home with many wonderful treasures. The kids loved tasting all the fruits and veggies. We love walking down to the kids’ playground on the other side of the pier..and the bigger kids love walking on the pier and seeing what everyone is catching..and talking to the fisherman. They saw stingrays being pulled out of the water one night..and were fascinated with that. We never encountered any stingrays on our side of the pier..and we had people in the water all the time. My husband and I particularly love going to the harbor for breakfast..there is constant boating activity, good food..and many tourists milling around. We bought the 5 consecutive day passes for Legoland..and thoroughly enjoyed the new waterpark. We all used the Lazy River..and the kids loved the waterslides. It is quite an amazing place. It is so quick to get there on the freeway..we were there in just a few minutes. The grandchildren that were on our trip were 17 down to 22 mths. You might state in your brochure that the travel cribs are for infants..as our almost 2 yr. old was too big for them. Otherwise..the house gets a “10”.

    A wonderful home and a wonderful vacation!
    Date of Stay: December 15, 2010
    We absolutely loved our stay at the Porter Beach House. It was completely equipped for our family, including every kitchen need, books to read, bikes, a video game system, a wagon for loading up beach items, and even toys for the kids. The bedrooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Every room had its own bathroom and there were plenty of TVs so the kids could be off relaxing with a show while the adults enjoyed one another’s company. We had a GREAT time!!! The location is amazing as well. So close to the beach, downtown Oceanside (very cute) and even Legoland. So glad we stayed at this property!

    Multi-generation Family Vacation
    Date of Stay: December 26, 2010
    The McLarney Beach House was all that was advertised… and more! With three full bathrooms and four sleeping areas upstairs, everyone was able to have their own space. There was even a blow-up bed for the youngest of our clan. The kitchen was well equipped, and the expandable dining table accommodated 14 of us when local relatives came by for a birthday dinner. The short walk to the beach and pier were daily activities. We also enjoyed the close proximity of I-5 when traveling to San Diego points of interest. And last, but not least, the wireless Internet allowed easy access for our technology addictions!

    Relaxing stay, property manager most helpful!
    Date of Stay: August 5, 2011
    We really enjoyed our stay from 8/5/11 thru 8/9/11. The house was in good and clean condition, same as advertised on the website. All linens and towels were clean and ready for our use. Proximity to the beach was the best! Literally one block away which made a short walk with a toddler very easy. Alana the property manager went above and beyond in all communications with me. We had a question regarding the wireless and she called me back within minutes. Couldn’t have asked for more. Would definitely recommend and hope to come back soon.

    Close to everything, and relaxing too!
    Date of Stay: August 12, 2011
    We had a lovely week away staying at the Porter Beach House. It is outfitted will everything you need to spend endless days at the beach, as well as a very comfortable residence with ample room so that you aren’t crowded, even with a large group. Each bedroom and bathroom are spacious, and the front living room is comfortable for the kids to hang out, while the adults play cards, chat or cook in the kitchen area. It’s close to Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, Wild Animal Park, and Disneyland. We enjoyed pulling the wagon to the beach, and walking to the Street/Farmer’s market on Thursday. The movie theater and good dining places are within walking distance as well. Red Cup Yogurt, and Dairy Queen were fun evening treat places! It was a very fun, comfortable, clean and welcoming place to be! We didn’t notice the train after the first day of being there. We would not hesitate to stay there again….we have wonderful memories that were made during our stay that we will hold close forever!

    Great time in an amazing beach house
    Date of Stay: August 12, 2011
    We had an amazing stay in the Porter Beach House. The house was extremely clean and well cared for. It was large enough so that we never felt like we were packed in on top of each other. What amazed me is the amount of thought that has gone into stocking the house so that there was always something to do. It comes completely stocked with everything that we needed for the beach. There are also plenty of DVDs, games, books, etc. to keep our kids occupied in the evenings. The view from the upper deck of the home is magnificent. I highly recommend this home for any family wanting an unforgettable beach vacation.

    Porter Beach House
    Date of Stay: September 2, 2011
    When we arrived at the beach house in Oceanside, it was better than we had expected. It was so clean it looked like no one had ever lived there. (I wish I could get my house that clean.) The bedrooms on the second floor are beautiful! I loved that each of the three bedrooms had their own bathrooms. The beds were made and ready to sleep in and bathrooms were fully stocked. On the bathroom counters there were little bottles of shampoo and conditioner, a bar of soap, and toothpaste. The bathroom that we used had a hair dryer, curling iron, and flat iron which came in handy since I had forgotten mine. We had fun walking the short distance to the beach and it was very convenient for us that we did not have to bring any beach supplies from home. There were beach towels, beach toys, beach chairs, boogie boards, surf boards, and even wet suits to use. The Oceanside Pier is a few blocks away and was a great place to take pictures and watch the local fishermen. One night we had dinner on the third floor balcony facing the beach and got to watch the sunset. That was a treat for my eight year old daughter. She had fun waving to the people walking and driving by. The notebook that is located downstairs was a great resource to find things to do and find out where local places are. We looked in there to find out where the local LDS church is to attend church on Sunday. We looked in there to find a great restaurant in Carlsbad (about 5 miles down the coast). Pizza Port in Carlsbad is a great place to go for pizza and wings and Linda’s is the place to go for ice cream. At night when we were tired and wanted to relax, we had our pick of DVD’s to watch from the cupboard under the tv downstairs. There is a television in each bedroom and a television in each of the the two living rooms. We would love to go to the Porter Beach House again for vacation! It was so nice to be able to get away and relax in the nice cool weather. This is the perfect place to go if it is a large group of people or even if it is a small group.

    Thanksgiving at the beach!
    Date of Stay: November 23, 2011
    We had the best time at The Porter Beach House. You can’t go wrong here! Immaculate, beautiful house in a great location. Great owners who provide every detail in the house that you might want to borrow. Beautiful view of beach and waves from many places in house including Master bedroom. Fireplaces, kids toys, beach toys, beach chairs, bikes, many places to sleep. We were two families of 4 adults and 5 young kids and it was beyond what we’d hoped for. Had a great trip to Legoland and celebrated our Thanksgiving Feast (with appetizers on the 3rd floor deck, of course). Such a great time!

    We celebrated my father’s 70th birthday by staying at the McLarney Beach House. The home accommodated 13 of us (7 adults and 6 children). The home was large and bright and when in your bedroom you did not hear any noise from downstairs so folks were able to sleep while others were chatting in the rooms below. The home is literally 1/2 block from the beach and we enjoyed many morning walking along the shoreline and to the Marina. Good restaurants around and close enough to San Diego and not too bad of a drive to Los Angeles where we sometimes spent the day as well. We would happily stay here again and recommend this beach rental to anyone. Two of our family members are very picky individuals with very high standards and they gave the home 2 thumbs up 😀

    Spectacular 3-bedroom Beach House!
    Date of Stay: December 26, 2011
    This house is perfect for three families and kids. We were 11 people (6 adults and 5 children) and we fit perfectly. Every family enjoyed the privacy of being at its own room including bathroom !!! The house has everything that you might need and more (kids stuff, beach stuff, bicycles,, kitchen is very well equipped). The house was very clean and it all the rooms and bathrooms were in perfect condition. Alana is such a nice person, she answered all our questions and more. She was very kind and helpful. I highly recommend anybody to go to this beautiful house to have the perfect vacation. It is very well located, we walked to the pier every day and spent time at the beach and biking (they have a bike rental place at the pier). The house is also closed to any amenity you might want to go (shopping malls, restaurants, park, beach) The house has an excellent folder with recommendations about everything you might want to do while you are there, so don’t even worry to do any research prior to go on vacation, you will find all the information you need in your house !! Oceanside is very nice and this house is the perfect combination for your dream vacation, go with your eyes closed, you will never regret it.

    PORTER BEACHHOUSE!
    Date of Stay: 3/25 – 4/2/12

    What’s better than staying at the Porter Beachhouse in Oceanside, CA…………………….NOTHING!!!
    We had a fabulous time, eating, beaching, disneylanding, sightseeing, sleeping, laughing, but mostly RELAXING! The house is beautiful, incredibly organized and has everything you need. The gas fireplace in the Master Bedroom was our favorite amenity, or was our favorite amenity the 3rd floor deck overlooking the ocean where we enjoyed breakfast every morning, actually, too many favorites to mention. We highly recommend the Thursday Farmers Market (which is really more of a street fair) and Colimas Mexican Food!!!!

    We can’t wait to go back…………… again and again

    Thanks Alana!!!

    Lisa,
    We loved having you as a Guest. Honeymooners are some of our favorites since Gary & I spent our Honeymoon in San Diego over 36 years ago. We are so glad you took advantage of the gas fireplace and the 3rd deck. We love both of those too. And Colimas…it makes my mouth water just to remember. Isn’t the Farmers Market just so much fun. We never cook at the Beach House on Thursdays. It’s Breakfast and Lunch and Dinner at the Markets. I especially enjoy the local bands that play at the Evening Market and the fresh mini-donuts are to die for!
    Best wishes for your future together!

    Ironman Weekend
    I stayed in the McLarney House during the Oceanside Ironman with 9 other friends and family members. The house was more than spacious enough and the extra inflatable beds gave our large group much more room than we’d hoped for. We had a great experience overall and Alana was eager to help in anyway she could throughout the rental process. As for the location it can’t get any better. We didn’t realize until we arrived but the house is easy walking distance to the Pier and to the Harbor making the house easily accessible during the entire Ironman weekend. If you are looking for a house for next years race you do not need to look further. Thanks for everything Alana.

    We absolutely loved the Porter Beach House! Our stay could not have been better. The home was clean and everything was so neatly organized, so finding and putting away things was no problem at all. We stayed for our honeymoon and it was perfect. The Porter Beach House is centrally located, we were able to go to Disneyland one day and San Diego the next, without spending all day in the car, not to mention the walking distance to the beach! I would recommend this house to anyone who is looking to have a great vacation in California. This will most likely not be our last time here! We LOVED it!!!

    We had a wonderful week at the Porter beach house. There was plenty of bedding and we all slept well. The “toots” of the train kept us from sleeping too long. We also had 3 relatives come for the days and meals. It was wonderful that the kitchen was so people friendly and the two big tables provided plenty of seating space.
    The family loved the beach. We brought a few wet suits, but it was so nice there were more in the garage we could use and boogie boards and chairs and toys and bikes. Even with all this equipment we were still able to park two cars in the garage and had 2 parking permits. One son parked in the all-day parking lot behind the house. However, he got a $60.00 ticket because he parked his suburban with one tire slightly over the white line. That is California for you. We took our older grandchildren to the San Diego Temple to do baptisms. They loved it. One day we rented an electric boat and went around the harbor. We saw 5 dolphins, 2 sea lions and many pelicans. The kids were so excited. We went to the morning farmer’s market and enjoyed it, but after a busy day at the beach a few of our grandkids had melt-downs because they were so tired. We took them back to the house and with all the TV’s we got them settled down and we ate leftovers.
    Another favorite activity was walking down the pier and getting a milkshake at Rudy’s. The fishermen always had some fish to look at.
    Thank you so much for a memorable week. We will remember it fondly for a long time. Your house is a treasure. Thank you for sharing it with us. The Olson’s

    I just want to say thank you for allowing our family to use your beach house in Oceanside last week. It was so great to get away and spend time with my family in such a beautiful house! My parents never go on vacation and I think this is the first time they have been to California in about 25 years. We definitely felt a little spoiled being able to stay in such an awesome place. We loved being so close to the beach and were very impressed with how clean and organized the house was. What a change it was from leaving the 110 degree heat one day and then taking a walk on the beach the next morning in cool 60 degree weather. One afternoon we rented a boat for an hour at the nearby Oceanside Harbor and had a few sea lions and 5 dolphins swim right up next to the boat…my kids will remember that forever! My family has stayed in a number of beach houses over the years and yours was by far the best.
    Thanks again for allowing our family to stay at your beach house and make so many great memories.
    Mike

    We had a wonderful time at your beach house. The location is great! Not only is the water and sand right out the door but the shops around town are within easy walking distance. The Farmers Market is a great attraction as well. The beach house was very spacious and comfortable for all of us. Having so many things already there made packing very simple. Normally we would have to take a trailer full of boogie boards, surf boards, sand toys, bedding and more. Having these items already there made the trip so much more enjoyable! Taking short bicycle rides each day was very relaxing. Early morning beach walks are amazing and beautiful. All of our family thoroughly enjoyed our time and we will be back!
    Thank you for your hospitality!

    I am a little hesitant on writing too good of a review because I am worried it will not be available next time my family and I want to stay there but seriously it is a perfect location, a beautiful house, everything was, including Mrs. Porter the booking agent. Can’t wait to get back and hang out on the beach

    We spent our Honeymoon at the Porter Beach House. What a wonderful week it was!! The house was perfect, so comfortable with everything needed for a stay at the beach. We loved being able to open the sliding door in the master bedroom and listen to the ocean. We used Alanas “BOOK” of things to do and places to eat every day!! our favorite breakfast place was Mary’s we walked there almost every morning (get the french toast!!) . It was nice having & bikes and beach chairs etc… If I would have cooked that week, I would of had everything there I needed.
    This house is one of the best rentals I have seen because the Porters made it feel like our home, the packet that we got had all the information we needed for the house, very detailed which made check-in and check-out a breeze!

    Thanks again for a wonderful week! The kids want us to take them now!!

    This house was more than perfect! The house is located a block away from the beach so every morning included coffee and a walk on the beach – it could not have been better. All of the family, 8 adults, had a blast and there was plenty of room. The house was well furnished and a huge plus was that each bedroom had its own bathroom. We had more family staying in a neighboring city and the Porter House was the “Hot Spot” to hang out during the day since it was conveniently located to the beach. The whole family had such a great time, we will be repeat vacationers and will definitely stay here again! Also, Alana is so friendly, she always responded with promptness and thoroughly answered any questions.

    You will be completely thrilled to stay here!!!

We enjoyed playing games, watching movies, visiting on the patio and the easy access to the beach and bike rides. We will want to return soon. It was perfect for our family. Thanks Bob and Terri Flaherty Family

    The house was fabulous! We were there for the IronMan and the location was perfect. Easy walk to both start and finish and great spot for watching the last leg of the bike. Everything is so well marked, so no questions about where to find something or how to operate anything. And the house is spotless!
    Thank you, Alana, for providing us with a hassle-free stay.

    Your house was beautiful and we had an amazing time. Should my family decide to rent a beach house in Oceanside again, it would be your house we would choose. I do have 2 tiny recommendations to improve on an already almost perfect beach house. I would recommend a few more ottomans, so that more people can put their feet up. Also, your home is missing a wine opener.

    Thank you again for wonderful time.

    Alana,

    We had such a marvelous time last week at your beautiful home. Thank you for being so accommodating and hospitable. This was our third time staying at your home and as usual found the home in tip top condition as pictured. The kitchen was fully functional and there were plenty of beds for everyone to have their own sleeping area. The toys, surfboards, bikes, wetsuits, beach wagon, beach chairs…..etc were well used. It was a benefit not to have to pack all those extra items. The baby items were especially useful since we had our 8 month old granddaughter with us. Our 7 year old grandson still loves to run outside to see what “train line” is coming by. We try to guess which one it is. We enjoyed going for ice cream to either downtown or the marina or to the pier every night. Unfortunately our oldest son was working on his master degree this time and wasn’t able to go night fishing on the pier…..he was really bummed. OUR WEEK WAS A SPECIAL FAMILY TIME FOR ALL.

    The Coon/Markoff Family

    We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Porter House. Family members from 4 different states stayed there so that we could all run the Carlsbad Marathon. It was perfect. Love how each of the bedrooms upstairs has their own private bathroom. Even for those on the sofa beds there is an accessible bathroom on the main floor. I so appreciated the cleanliness and freshness of the house. We were overwhelmed with all of the “extras” from an abundance of quilts and blankets to use of the beach equipment in the garage. We had an 18 month old in the house so we were grateful for the toys and other toddler items. The kitchen was very well equipped. We enjoyed sitting outside on the rooftop terrace. Thank you so much for this terrific experience. We would highly recommend the Porter House.

    Porter Vacation Beach House Unit A

    Do you believe in magic? Well, we certainly do now that we have stayed at the Porter Vacation Rental home Unit A. We stayed for spring break of 2014 with 3 families for a total of 8 adults and 10 children and did not feel crowded at all. There are many things about the home that we loved from the open floor plan of the kitchen and dining to the ample room for all to sit and visit and watch movies at night after a long day at the beach, it was magical. We have done many vacation home rentals and this is the first time we have loved the home and the experience so much we were already planning our return trip before we left. The kitchen had almost everything we needed to cook full meals for our families; we only ate out a couple times just for the fun of eating at the pier. The beach provided all day entertainment from sand castles to swimming and flying kites to shell hunting our families now have some amazing lasting memories of our time at the beach. What we loved about the home was its great location, we loved being one block back from the beach because by the time you walked home (5min) most of the sand was gone from your feet and the home has a hose in the front before you come in to wash off any remaining sand. At night we would take walks on the beach and enjoy the sounds of the ocean. We were lucky enough to be there for the grunion run and had a blast looking at all the fish that come up on the beach. The local farmers market on Thursdays was incredible and the vendors there got a fair share of our money because of the incredible goods such as fresh fruits and vegetable and incredible foods from around the world.

    Alana Porter, the Owner and Property Manager was 1st class in all our interactions. She took the time to make sure all our questions were answered. She reached out to us just before the vacation week to make sure we did not have any other needs in regards to the home and even helped us with a couple of recommendations of activities for the family during our stay. It was great to have the personal touch of being able to call her at any time with questions. She is very experienced and knowledgeable in staying at Oceanside and all her recommendations for activities were a big success with our families. Renting an electric boat from the harbor was so fun, it seats 12 and is covered. Great activity for families!!! Thank you Alana!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you are looking for a beach home to rent for an amazing family get together, you will not be sorry to rent this home, just don’t rent during the week we want to……We plan to make staying at this magical home an annual tradition for our young family!!!

    We had a fantastic week at your beautiful home at the beach. It was definately a dream vacation for our family!! With 5 children, son in laws and 15 grandchildren we couldnt have picked a more perfect place to spend a week together!! We loved every minute! and you are so generous to share all your boogie boards, surf boards, bicycles, and so much more. Everything we needed was right there. The homes are beautiful and are so well stocked. We loved all your fun family pictures decorating your home. It gave us ideas for some of our pcture taking moments. We enjoyed spending time on the 3rd level balcony, awesome view! The location is perfect! Just a minute walk to the beach and so close to the pier! We loved your suggestion to go to the Farmers Market. We had such a good time we went back for the evening one. Great food! With 15 grandchildren, ages 14 to 11 months I was pleased that there were never the words “I’m Bored”! It was just nonstop fun! Before we left all the kids were asking when we could do it again! It was definately a great memory maker for our family!! Thank you so much and we will do it again!! I would recommend this home to anyone!

    Duran’s and family and friends

    We had family locally come and visit and family that traveled from Pismo Beach and Fresno. The house had everything we could possibly need? We tend to be over packers and were able to leave some of our things packed in the truck! There was plenty of room for our entire family with every age group, from grandparents to a 11 month old. The only thing we missed was our dog! Oceanside temperature was perfect for us all. We had s’mores and a bonfire on the beach and enjoyed walks during sunset? Drawbacks were parking restrictions. Having the two car garage and the parking pass was very helpful? We have received texts from the kids (grown adults) expressing their gratitude for a memorable vacation and sadness it is over! Looking forward to returning and would like to stay longer next time! Not sure if 14 days may be too long thinking 10 days would be just about right!

    Thanks for the wonderful memories!

    Thank you for the special roles your beach vacation houses (Units A & D) played in our special family trip to California July 25 to August 1, 2014. A total of 14 of the “McCarthy Clan” (7 from Ohio and 7 from Virginia) came to Oceanside to attend our son/ grandson/brother/brother-in-law/uncle Tim’s marriage to his beautiful new wife Michaella, and then stayed the week to enjoy the ocean, the sites, and the many special attractions. Porter Units A and D were beautiful and spacious and served as a great headquarters for our entire group. We can tell these are truly family houses based upon how well our group get-togethers worked. We even hosted a dinner for our entire group, including the bride and groom and her parents Lorie and Paul and everyone was able to be accommodated in the extended eating area of Unit D. The sleeping accommodations more than met our needs and the location overlooking the beach and ocean couldn’t have been more perfect. I can assure you our group spent lots of time on the roof patios enjoying the view and the wonderful ocean breezes! And a whole group of our party enjoyed our walk to the Oceanside pier and rewarded ourselves with the incredible milkshakes at Ruby’s Diner. We brought home lots of pictures and even more special memories. Everyone agreed the beach houses were terrific and added a lot to our great experience!!

    Stauffer Family

    We had three young families stay at the beach house and it was a great time! The house had all the necessities for fun at the beach as well – which was a short walk down the street. They even had a surfboard available, along with boogey boards, towels, chairs, a canopy and a oversized wagon to carry it all. We all enjoyed our stay and will probably be back in the future!

    Open first floor plan leading to a front deck served as the perfect ambience for twelve friends and family members. Each bedroom had its own restroom along with a bonus loft. This house was fully stacked with every need (and want) imaginable. We were able to fit two mini SUVs inside the garage and received a parking permit for our third vehicle. The place was immaculately clean for us when we arrived. We were just a short block away from the beach and a short five minute walk to the pier. We are definitely considering this unit once again for another occasion. All adults and kids loved it!

    Dear Alana and Porter family , thank you for the awesome time we were granted to spend our time in your beautiful home ?.

    The beach house was an oasis after being in a hotel room for a couple of days. The space had a lot of extra space to accommodate a large family. The access to a large stocked kitchen alone was amazing to be able to cook a homemade meal and all fit around the large dining table to eat as a family made memories that will last forever.
    Then to walk on the beach just a few minutes walk from the house we never drove anywhere once we were at the beach house everything we needed was all in walking distance: the movies, ice-cream, beach and restaurants.
    The bedrooms are very spacious plenty of room for the kids to sleep comfortably.
    Access to a washer and dryer is another perk that you cannot put a price tag on especially if you have a lot of little ones:-) It was a stress FREE vacation with everything within walking distance again never had to hassle with parking the whole stay. The farmers market at night is like going on a world tour of food from everywhere around the world. We loved being there over a Thursday night. My kids and I are hoping to go again in the future!

    Dear Alana and Jean- the entire Porter family,
    Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your lovely home. We had a wonderful time! The weather was perfect. We had a large party of 17, with 7 of those being children or toddlers. The home was large enough for everyone. The kitchen was huge and well stocked. We didn’t have to bring anything for the beach other than ourselves and our swimsuits. Boards, beach toys, chairs and towels were all provided, which is a wonderful amenity. We loved the beach, Farmer’s market and other attractions of the home and the community.
    We hope to be able to stay in the future. Thank you again. From the Renfro Family (Pleasant Grove, Utah)

    We had a wonderful time and this condo was in a great location!

    We had a mini family reunion here and loved that we could all be in the same condo. It was convenient to reach anywhere we wanted to go. It was clean and well stocked with items we could use for our beach days. The sleeping and living arrangements were wonderful and we felt as if we were in our own home. We will definitely share the condo information with others and we will use them again!
