About Jody Nakashima

I love staying in vacation rentals. Especially when I have my family, which includes my husband, daughter, son-in-law, and toddler granddaughters with me. The privacy, space, and freedom can't be beat. I enjoy cooking meals so I know what is helpful in the kitchen. Interior design is a hobby and Tremont Villa is my showcase - stylish, but also comfortable. I notice details and as any homeowner knows, a home is a constant on-going improvement project.

So I go above and beyond to keep you and your family in mind - to help you create wonderful vacation memories by staying at my beautiful, coastal getaway.


Jody Nakashima purchased this house in 2006

Why Jody Nakashima chose Townsite

Oceanside's under-the-radar vibe is a beach town without the crazy crowds. Very walkable to the beach, restaurants, and stores. An emerging food and brew scene means an influx of restaurants from burger joints to fine-dining establishments and everything in-between. It has easy access to I-5 and is a centrally located base to enjoy Southern California attractions like LEGOLAND, Disneyland, San Diego Wild Animal Park, Zoo, and Sea World.

What makes this house unique

The broad, sandy beaches are within a 5-minute walk from our home. The sunsets are awesome! This is the home you would wish to live in full-time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed at this house for three successive winters (3 months at a time). Every year was just like coming home. Jody is a marvelous host who not only makes you feel at home, but if a problem arises (seldom), she fixes it immediately. She even decorates the house for Christmas including a tree. The house is spacious and comfortable. The extras are above average. The location is great for walking to the beach, movie theater, restaurants, downtown or driving to San Diego and other tourist spots in the area. It is less an an hour to get to the wine country of Temecula. I would highly recommend this house to anyone staying a weekend, a week, a month, or an entire winter. Thanks, Jody for making our winters in California a memorable experience.

We had a blast

  • 5 of 5

Tremont Villa is amazing. We had 7 people, 2 were toddlers. There was plenty of space, tons of thoughtful touches, like garage door openers instead of having to get out and use the keypad. The beach is close as many have stated, pop a few blocks down the hill and your toes are in the sand, however you don't have the constant traffic because, while right in the middle of everything, Tremont Street is mostly quiet. The neighborhood is so convenient, it's close to everything, great local restaurants and shops. We went to the beach, Legoland, Stone Brewery, got our kids surfing lessons, and rented a boat on the harbor. Tremont was our hub and our refuge, it made us feel like we all had space; It was very relaxing and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone, Jody was great to work with and help us out in every way should could from local travel guides to the great wagon in the garage. If you're going to stay in So Cal with a larger group and want to be near the beach and attractions don't look further than Tremont.

Our Oceanside Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Vacationing at thid home went far beyond our expectations. The photos and description found on the website, although beautiful, did not do justice to the house. We were incredibly pleased and surprised by all of the amenities and designer touches. We did not want for anything!

We stayed very busy during our week's stay. We enjoyed a train ride to San Diego, exploring Sea World, Seaport Village, Balboa Park, and Point Loma (Cabrillo museum, lighthouse, and tidepools). We also spent a lot of time at the beach, of course! We loved coming back to this exquisite villa after each of our excursions. It truly was a home away from home. Highly recommended!

Christmas at the Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely house in Oceanside. It's in a great location, just a few blocks from downtown and lots of public transportation, and very close to the beach. The house was very clean, well kept, and spacious. The little gas fireplace was very cozy and there was a fully decorated Christmas tree as well, which was a nice touch! We especially liked the the pool table! Also, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could need and the grill was in great condition!

Our host was outstanding in every way; very communicative and helpful at all stages of our visit. She was very generous with her assistance in getting to know the area and suggested lots of things to do during our stay.

All in all, it was a wonderful experience at Tremont Villa! Already looking forward to a return stay. Thank you so much, Jody!!

Excellent location for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We met with our family at Tremont Villa for the Thanksgiving week. It was a perfect location for our family. The older children enjoyed the pool table. The younger ones played with the games and watched TV. Trips to the beach were fun and we used the beach toys and bikes that were in the garage.

The home is very large and spotless clean. The kitchen is well-supplied with everything necessary for food preparation.

Everyone had a great time and look forward to doing this again.

Thanks Jody for sharing your home with us.

Excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

Large home with all of the things you may have forgotten to pack. The owner was very reliable & assessable. Bed & bathrooms are roomy. It’s such a plus having your own garage. I would stay here again.

Was just what we were promised.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home in a nice neighborhood . We enjoyed walking to the Harbor and of course the long beach south. Great gastropubs - we were sorry that there were too many for us to enjoy in four days.
