This charming three-bedroom, two and half bath light and open floor plan house is located in the French chateau community of St. Malo. This community offers year round summertime fun. The home features a lovely back patio with a gas fire pit, large dining table and an amazing view of the Buena Vista Lagoon. The internal courtyard also provides a wonderful space for you to dine and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and fabulous Southern California weather. The house is a 2 minute walk on private streets (no stairs) to the beach.

Saint Malo Beach is a 76-year old gated community that was once a hidden paradise for movie stars and Los Angeles executives. The architecture is Normandy village style. The community was inspired by the island city of St. Malo located off the Brittany coast of France. St Malo features a private beach with clubhouse cabana, summer lifeguards, playground equipment, barbecue, covered patio, sand volleyball court, a paddle tennis court and 3 tennis courts. Prince Phillip and Princess Anne stayed at St. Malo while in San Diego during their visit to the summer Olympics in 1984. The neighborhood has a very European feel to it and is considered one of the best locations in Oceanside.

                                            Great house!!!

                                            Sean H.

                                            Really cool house in an awesome area !!!

                                            So relaxing, comfortable, and cozy.

                                            Felicia R.

                                            Highly recommend. Comfortable beds. Extra amenities, etc

                                            Beautiful, Clean and Close To The Beach

                                            Emily G.

                                            Wow! What a house! The rooms were big and beautiful with lots of personality - including several stained glass windows. The home is 1 block from the beach and the garage was stuffed with all the beach toys you need. The neighborhood beach is private and has clean restrooms. Couldn't ask for anything more for a fabulous family vacation!

                                            Perfect Spot for a Family Beach Vacation!

                                            Anthony C.

                                            We've spent several summer vacations in St. Malo over the years and this house is definitely one of our favorites. The home is clean and comfortable, while still maintaining an "old school" SoCal beach vibe. Location on the lagoon is a real plus: sunrises are spectacular from the deck and it provides a peaceful and comfortable place to hang out in the afternoon/evening. We loved seeing (and hearing) the Amtrak Surfliner when it rolled past. You'll find all the beach gear you need in the garage, including boogie/surf boards, sand toys and several bikes (great for cruising around the laid back town of Oceanside). Lots of friendly families/kids in the St. Malo community and on the beach. Property manager (Dorothy) was delightful; she checked in to ensure we had everything we needed for our stay. Overall, this is just an excellent spot for a family beach vacation.

                                            Awesome house and great set up for kids!

                                            Eric P.

                                            We had an amazing stay at St Malo and 76 Beach Street. We were in town for a friends wedding and the house was the perfect place for 2 couples and 2 kids. The community of St Malo is awesome (great beach, volleyball, tennis, etc) and the house is great. Laid back beach vibe + we especially loved the back deck and fire pit. We would def recommend St Malo and this property to other family and friends.

                                            Dreaming of Saint Malo

                                            Stacia R.

                                            If you travel extensively, you come to recognize and relish a truly special place when you find one. North County San Diego’s private Saint Malo in south Oceanside is as exquisite as a beach holiday gets. Striking a perfect balance of aesthetics and a laid back atmosphere, this is a place to get serious about relaxation. With its historic French provincial architecture and European feel, Saint Malo is home to multi-generational families who gather traditionally to cherish memories of yesteryear while communing with the majestic Pacific. The pace is slower here, almost lulling you into a dream state. The decisions you contemplate with your toes firmly burrowed in the sand might include: To kayak or to paddleboard? To grill fresh fish at the beach shack or check out one of the new eateries in town? To beach comb or to nap? Bring your family and friends and enjoy this extraordinary secret of Southern California. Saint Malo will stay with you long after the vacation ends.
