I've stayed here on a few occassions at the Blue Whale Resort(resort is misnomer, about 12 units here). This time I stayed in a 1br/1ba unit #6. As I stated in heading, the location is awesome, as others have said, you step out your door, walk about 100 ft or less and you will be in the beach sand in Oceanside, a little walk to the Pier. You can hear the oceanwaves, just awesome location.
The room is appointed nicely, very simple, flat screen tv in living room(but no tv in bedroom), small dining room table, full kitchen with all untensils, pots, oven pots,forks,knives,salt/pepper, cookie sheet,tea kettle and more, everything you need to cook with or bake with...There is a sofa sleeper and even a pull out bed in the closet. Plenty of space to put your belongings in the bedroom, mirrored closets with plenty of closet space and plenty of drawers from the dresser and the built in drawers next to the closet..
The resort also has gas bbq grills, beach toys, a ousdie lounge area for relaxation. Saturday and Sundays morning continental breakfast. Free high speed wi-fi, you can rent movies at the office. Housekeeping stopped by to knock on the door nearly everyday to ask if we needed anything which was nice.. the front desk and staff were very nice and helpful. Plenty of literature in the room to help guide you around Oceanside, Carlsbad, San Diego area.
You can't do much better than this location being right next to the beach and not alot of people in this section of the beach. The Blue Whale resort is perfect for a getaway anytime of year... I'll be going back again as usual...
The cons: the bed was very, very firm, couldn't sleep on it, slept on sofa sleeper..
No washer/dryer in unit or at complex..
Bedroom wall is very thin, could hear people in unit next door if they were talking in the room.
