Oceanside has had some lovely reviews and I think in it's heyday it was very good. The owner was easy to deal with and the lady that she has managing the place was lovely as well. Unfortunately the owner is not there much anymore, and the downstairs unit is starting to look a bit tired. It was also very cold in this unit as it doesn't get much sun due to the big veranda upstairs. The setting is very peaceful and rugged if you want to get away from it all. It was quite expensive for what it was. We were a little bit disappointed that some of the things still advertised on the website are no longer current and maybe this should be updated to portray a more accurate picture. It was a comfortable stay but I am sorry to say didn't really live up to our expectations.
