Just steps from the ocean! 03/08/2015

VRBO Bear stayed here:


The moment I stepped into the Oceanside Dolphin Villa, I knew I would find peace and relaxation. I was greeted with the gentle breeze of the ocean as it wafted through the expansive downstairs. With a large dining table, and a quaint breakfast nook, I envisioned myself preparing a delicious breakfast for all my bear friends. I knew the downstairs master bedroom would be perfect for my parents. With a large 4-poster bed and a 3-piece bath set, I knew they would be comfy.

I found my space in the large master bedroom on the second floor. With his and her baths, a built in fireplace, king size bed and large balcony that looks over the ocean, I knew I could find time to relax in the modern day comforts. Just down the hall, I found a cute bedroom built just for the bear cubs. It had built-in bunk beds, video games, and a bathroom just across the hall.

A large door at the end of the hall opened onto a small patio with another door on the other side. Curious, I discovered an entire apartment (or casita) as they like to call it around here. Complete with a living room, futon, breakfast table, wet bar and a separate bedroom, (including a queen size bed and 3- piece bathroom) one could disappear back here for some peace and quiet.

Back in the main house, I marveled at the immense space we would occupy. It was then that I discovered yet another flight of stairs. Being the bear that I am, I explored a little bit more. Opening the door at the top of the stairs, I was nearly knocked off my paws. The entire roof was a rooftop oasis, complete with a state of the art gas stove, Jacuzzi tub, fire-pit and seating for the whole family! The gentle sea breeze blew through my fur. With expansive views of the beach and the Oceanside pier, I knew I would enjoy sipping coffee and watching the waves roll in for hours.

Just a short walk across the street and I found myself dipping my toes in the warm sands of Oceanside Beach. I strolled along the beach for hours, looking for seashells, and went down to the pier where I enjoyed delicious food at Ruby’s Diner. With all the amenities of a modern day town, and just a quick drive to big cities like San Diego, I was quite pleased with my selected locale.

It was wonderful to be so close to the water, and we took advantage of the boogie boards and beach chairs. When the nights cooled down, we moved to the roof to sit around the fire and listen to the waves. The Oceanside Dolphin Villa was everything I imagined and more.
