The house sits atop a hill in a quiet cul-de-sac with cool ocean breezes daily. Pool area is fenced with plenty of sitting area for eating and lounging. Front yard is semi enclosed with garden and outdoor shower for after the beach.
Neighborhood is nice with plenty of restaurants, breweries, shops, grocery, bars and entertainment within a few minutes. The beach is only a 2 minute drive and Oceanside downtown and pier area only 5 minutes. Downtown has movie theaters, all levels of restaurants, year round festivals, music, surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, biking, bowling alley and more. Oceanside harbor also has boat, kayak, paddle board and jet ski rentals to venture into the ocean. Be sure to search the San Diego Reader online before coming to see the endless events happening in the area. Printed copies are available all over town as well.
California is known for it's beaches, weather and entertainment, the cottage is located evenly between most of the major attractions: Lego Land(10 min drive), Disneyland/Knotts Berry Farm(45min North), Sea World/San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, SD Animal Safari Park, Mission Bay, USS Midway(40 min South), Dana Point Harbor(30min North), Carlsbad Village (10Min). Oceanside train station is located 10 minutes from the cottage and serves as the main hub service for the Coaster(runs to downtown San Diego along the coast) and Amtrak(heads north all the way to Orange County and Los Angeles) The Coaster is a great day trip costing only $14 round trip. You can bring bikes on board and exit and re enter at any of the 10 city stops along the coast to downtown San Diego. Trains leave almost every hour and run from morning until about midnight. Train ticket also includes the downtown trolleys which can take you all over the area including Qualcomm Stadium(Chargers/soccer/concerts), Petco Park(Padres), Gaslamp District, Little Italy and more. The San Diego airport is an easy $5 UBER from the downtown train station. SORRY BUT PETS ARE CURRENTLY NOT ALLOWED.

We hope to see you on the coast, San Diego is active with great weather year around.

Car: Recommended

The cottage is located just up from the beach with an easy 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk through a quaint neighborhood. There are many restaurants, shops, breweries, nightlife and year round events within 5 to 15 minutes. Downtown Oceanside has a Thursday night market filled with food vendors, FREE live music and a variety of other attractions. The pier offers a great sunrise or sunset walk over the Pacific ocean with surfing, snorkeling and paddle boarding. Oceanside Harbor has boat, kayak and paddle board rentals with a variety of food and drink locations. PCH is filled with cafes, restaurants, live music, bars, breweries, surf shops, bowling alley, 18 screen movie theaters and more.

You won't be bored in the area and you can easily venture all the way to downtown San Diego via the Coaster train for $14 round trip. Train station is a quick 5 minute drive from the house with free parking and runs almost hourly all day. You can take bikes on the train and exit at any station down the coast and get back on board all with your ticket.

Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm are north approx 45 min, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, USS Midway and more located south about 45 minutes(accessible by car or train). The San Diego Wild Animal Park is East approx 30 minutes and Lego land is a quick 10 min drive on the freeway or coast.

Vista is an adjacent city that has more craft breweries than any other city in the USA. Mountain hiking trails are an easy 45 min drive or there are local hiking trails as well.

Dana Point Harbor is 30 min north with whale watching, kayaks, snorkeling, surfing and more. Whale watching and jet ski rentals are are 40 minutes South from Mission Bay next to Sea World.

Live music abounds in San Diego with everything from many large venues to endless small bars and clubs with music nightly within 5 to 45 minutes.

There is never a shortage of things to do from active sports, music, amusement parks, romantic dining, clubs, breweries, bars or just lounging at our uncrowded beaches.

See you on the coast soon.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Hello, my name is Neil and I am the property owner, living part time in a small attached unit when in town and not traveling. It's enjoyable meeting and interacting with the families that come to stay with us in the Cottage. Ive had visitors from Ireland, Germany, Canada and Russia stay along with people across the country. Since I am also a traveler and utilize many of the same sites for booking vacation properties, the Cottage is set up to accommodate like minded people and give them great rates in a nice central location. Safe travels and enjoy our coastal living.

Why the Owner Chose Townsite, Oceanside, CA, USA:
I bought this property to be close enough to the beach and be able to bicycle to everything in the area. The Cottage is homey and functional with a great sense of privacy, yet very close the areas features and easy access to freeways or the coast.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Cottage is unique in many ways including the price, location, layout and amount of people able to be accommodated for families, groups or friends. The goal is to make your stay very pleasant and enjoyable so your friends also decide to come and visit us.
