Nice place to live. However, be aware that there are problems with sewer lines. Houses that were built during the initial phase have cast iron sewer pipes. Most of these pipes are no longer functioning due to rust and old age. Make sure to check your sewer line. You most likely need to go through the expensive process of replacing the sewer line to avoid continuous backups and problems when living there.

Wish I would have never bought in Oceana East. The grounds and landscaping is horrendous. Dues are $330 a month for nothing. Only a few select homes have nice yards. Rules are only unforced to some. Mismanaged horribly. Many are selling.

All potential buyers, exercise a lot of caution before buying here. The office / HOA gives little to zero to it's residents. The operate in a bubble, and do not care about residents concerns. They will not help with even basic tasks, they are incredibly inept at fixing or even addressing safety concerns. The quality of life here has declined dramatically in the last 5 years, mainly due to the HOA, and the office staff.

Beautiful landscaping, views, nice roads, and great walking sidewalks. They have a very nice pool, resale shop, art studio, and large clubhouse. Lots of activities and good value for the area.

This is a horrible place to live, renting or buying. The HOA here is the worst, they don't know what they're doing, they have law suits against them. The rentals are owned by slum lords, the grounds are a mess. I've only lived here less than a year and HATE it.

Oceana is perfect for anyone looking for great amenities at an affordable price. Some of the homes are a little older, but many are starting to be rehabbed. You can't be the price for Southern California. The clubhouse is really nice and everyone likes it here.

Nice area for 55+ community. Homes are older and the clubhouses show their age, but the residents are very welcoming. Recommend!

Friendly and relaxed is how I would describe Oceana. It's not at all pretentious like so many other communities which is what I like most. You've got all the basic amenities, a great location, nice homes and friendly neighbors. What more could you ask for!
