Property description

This classic beach cottage is built directly on the beach in Oceanside, California. It is perfect for family and friends on a beach vacation. If you have been searching for a beach vacation rental that really is directly ON the sand, with no street or sidewalk between you and the ocean, you have found it. You share none of the property with other renters and you have a fire ring and private beach that is yours alone to use and enjoy. The beach front lawn is a great place to spend the day. Full of historic charm and character, this vintage beach house, built in 1898, features a large private beach and includes a private fire ring that is perfect for bonfires, roasting marshmallows or hot dogs. From your private beach and beachfront lawn you can watch whales and dolphins pass by or enjoy the evening sunsets. You can collect seashells or build sandcastles in your own back yard or take a short stroll up to the pier for food and entertainment. This vintage beach cottage will remind you of summers in Cape Cod from its bead board walls to its painted blue, wood plank floors. This is a beachy barefoot cottage for family fun.

Great for Families: You will love the blue and white details and decor of this vacation rental. The charming cottage is decorated in fresh blues and crisp whites. Separate entrances for each level, assure privacy when vacationing with family, grandparents and friends. The beach side deck connects each level, there is no interior staircase. The cottage has the best beach front location and views you can imagine. But, its the beach front lawn and private beach with a fire ring that everyone just raves about! Enjoy the beautiful view of the beach, sand and sea and be astounded by the sound of the crashing waves right in front of you. Collect seashells and take walks to the nearby pier for dining and entertainment. You will love this home and its privacy on the beach. Most guests return more than once.
Layout: From the street side, you walk up two steps to the blue and white front porch. Pass through the red front door and on this level you will find the main living room, dining room and the kitchen, all with great beach views. Also on this level, is a bathroom and a bedroom with a queen bed decorated in blues and whites. Go out the the beach side dining room sliders to the upper deck. Its a great spot to have a drink or snack while watching your family on the beach. Now go down 8 outside deck steps to reach the lower level. On the lower level you will find a quaint family room,bathroom, two bedrooms -each with a queen bed and a fourth sleeping area with two queen beds.This fourth sleeping area is perfect for kids or teens. It is a sleeping area rather than a formal bedroom and opens to the downstairs family room. It is not as private as the other 3 bedrooms. The back yard features the main deck, a wonderful lawn and private beach. The lawn has been a huge hit with all families. Its a great spot for beachfront games or a BBQ and it acts as 'natures doormat' when it comes to keeping sand out of the house. If you want to go from your private beach to the public beach you simply go down two steps to the beach and water! It really is the true beachfront house you have been looking for looking for! If you want a large, Luxury property, then this is not your house. If you love vintage and cozy charm, then you will love this beachfront cottage.

Location is everything in a beachfront rental and this is on the best block in the city. You share none of the property with anyone else- it is your alone to use and enjoy. The home is very well known in the community as the Red Door House and has been featured in the city's holiday home tour. Built in 1898 and lovingly cared for, it has all the charm and romance of a classic beach cottage. The area is perfect for families. You can walk to the farmers market on Thursday mornings and get fresh local produce and food from great vendors, or walk to one of the longest piers in Southern California. There are many restaurants to choose from right at the pier, and Ruby's at the end of the pier. On Thursday evenings the street fair is set up again with live music, vendors with hundreds of options for gifts and every type of food you can imagine. There is now a small 'Stone Brewery' to stop in at and get a wonderful craft beer while sitting around an out door fire pit. The famous 'Top Gun' house is located just a few hundred yards down the Strand for a nostalgic photo opportunity. Want to see a movie? There is Regal 16 movies right up the street. There is also many restaurants you can walk to including Hello Betty, Local Tap House, Bagbys Brewing Company, Masters, The Flying Pig and 333. The nearby village of Carlsbad on State street has great shops and food too.

This is a family beach cottage. It is perfect for multi generations or friends and family wanting to be on the beach on a property you are not sharing with others. We have sand toys for the kiddos.


If you have more questions we are more than happy to speak with you or email about this beachfront home. Our calendars are not always accurate so please inquire by phone or email and verify the date you want is open and the exact rate for that week.
This home is great for weddings on the beach, reunions and special events. Please inquire for details. Built in 1898 and once owned by silent screen stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, this cottage on the seashore is perfect for your next seaside vacation

Manager info

About: Raised our family on the beach and now we enjoy sharing the home with others

Why Private Homes:
Its one of the few beach rentals to NOT have a street, hillside or public used walkway between the home and the ocean. It really is ON the beach

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You have a private fire ring and private beach with a lush green lawn! This is far away from the strand and all the noisy/dense/jammed condo rentals in the 900 block of So Pacific where you have to share so much of your vacation and vacation property with strangers. Here you have safety and privacy for family time.
