Private Homes house description

A home away from home! Enjoy all the privacy and comfort of home without the responsibilities. Situated between downtown Carlsbad and downtown Oceanside, and less than a mile from the beach, this home offers plenty of lounge space, a stocked kitchen, and a newly remodeled backyard to make your vacation with family and friends comfortable and fun-filled. Lounge under the shade of the gazebo, recline on the sunny deck, soak in the spa after a day at the beach, BBQ with friends and family, or ride the beach cruisers around town. When the beach front condos are too breezy and cold in the winter, the private backyard stays warm enough to sunbathe, even in January! This house offers something for everyone!

The 3 bedrooms/2 bath set-up offers flexible accommodations. Bedroom one features a comfortable pillow-top mattress queen bed, closet, television, and vanity. Bedroom two features a double size futon, a pull out single bed, closet, and desk/vanity. The office doubles as a bedroom with a pull-out couch, closet/dresser, and attached bathroom. The living room / dining room features a 46' blu-ray television, piano, and large, comfortable couch. The couch offers an additional piece which, when added on, allows for 4-5 people to sleep comfortably. This option is great for families with kids who want to sleep together or stay up late watching movies. The house features oak wood floors and unique pieces of art from around the world. The house is sunny and well-ventilated, so it stays cool in the summer without the need for air conditioning.

South Oceanside is only a short walk or ride on the beach cruisers from the beach, markets, restaurants, bars, street fairs, farmers markets, and shopping. It is within a couple miles of movie theaters and the Oceanside harbor. Located just west of the I-5 and I-78 merge, it is a quick drive from golfing, hiking, mountain-biking, Legoland, and the Del Mar race track, and within an hour drive to Zoo/Wild Animal Park, Disneyland, Sea World, and Temecula wineries.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: My husband and I grew up in San Diego and now live here with our dog and cat. Jason works in the offroad racing industry and I am a high school English teacher, which allows us time and flexibility to travel. While backpacking through countries throughout the world we love to sample new foods and cultures and collect local art.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      We live in this house for part of the year and rent it out while traveling. We love South Oceanside because it is a beach town with a funky, artistic culture. We are regular patrons of local restaurants and street fairs that promote local and organic products, and we think that any visitor will enjoy the warmth and good spirit of this area.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The backyard is our favorite spot in the house. It's a great place to entertain, BBQ, read, catch some sun, and relax in the hot tub. We also prefer the easy bike ride over the drive to all the local fun. We keep extra bikes on hand for when we have friends over.
