About Lillian Shine
My name is Lillian Shine and I have been managing this row home for the owners since 2011. I have been managing properties for over 30 years in this area.
Lillian Shine purchased this House in 2011
Why Lillian Shine chose Townsite
This property is in a great location to enjoy all that beautiful North San Diego County has to offer. Restaurants, the longest wooden Pier on the West Coast, long sandy beaches, Oceanside's beautiful Marina, Cape Cod Village, Movie Theatres, Live Theatre, Oceanside Museum of Art, Surf Museum and more are all a short walk away. Enjoy Farmer's Market every Thursday. The train runs behind the home and blows it's horn. Most guests get used to it after a few times. We are working on getting Santa Fe Railroad to minimize the horn blowing. If you can deal with the train, you'll have a wonderful home and location for your beach visit. Please also note: our home does NOT have an air conditioning unit. We do have fans.

Great home and Great location
We had the best time at this beautiful, spacious home just a couple of blocks to the beach. Lillian was very accommodating and made sure everything was just perfect for our family. The train was not really a bother...we became used to it and our children loved seeing it. The roof top deck was so enjoyable with tables and chairs and umbrella. We could see the ocean slightly and the ocean air is wonderful. We will surely be back to this wonderful rental.
Thank you for taking such good care of our home. We hope you will come back. You are welcome anytime.
Nice location and access. Private
Overall the condo needs some work. Cheap blinds fall apart when trying to open and the plumbing fixtures were in need of repair. Master bath sink faucet fell apart in my hand and the kitchen sink was ready to break. All construction quality. Was disappointed that there were no basic spices or sugar or anything. I even had to buy dish soap.
Nice location and would rent again.
Great Location 3 minute walk to the beach.
We will definitely return to this home for our annual family vacation back to Oceanside. Very clean and well stocked home. Walking distance to countless opportunities, great restaurants, retail shops and everything you need for the beach. A must morning walk to a Quaint pastry shop with great customer service, "Petite Madeline's" pastries are out of this world. After dinner head to Davinas Cabo grill, best drinks west of Vegas.
It was a pleasure having you and your family here in Oceanside. Thank you Tyson. We hope to see you again. All the best.
Don't Stay Here
Upon arrival we thought we'd be happy with this house. We were wrong. It was on the newer side, large, clean, and only a few blocks from the beach which are the things that made me choose this house to begin with. Problem #1) The home is situated 25 yards from the train tracks! VERY ACTIVE TRAIN TRACKS that run all day and ALL NIGHT while BLARING the horn right outside the bedroom windows making it impossible to sleep- even while sleeping with boxfans and earplugs in (which we went out and bought first thing the next morning). This relates to problem #2) There is no air conditioner- meaning we had to sleep with the windows wide open making the train noise even more unbearable. These are problems indeed, however nothing compared to Problem #3) The home was broken into in the middle of the night and we were burglarized. The sliding glass door does not latch & lock properly and when I woke up in the morning and came downstairs it was completely wide open and our things were stolen. We didn't hear a thing because we all had earplugs in and boxfans going! I filed a police report and when the police officer arrived he informed us that the area of the home is crime ridden with transients, drugs, and gangs, which is quite apparent when you look around. Needless to say, we did not have a pleasant experience at this house. It was supposed to be a relaxing vacation in sunny San Diego, and it turned out to be nightmare. I guess I can't call it a nightmare, because that insinuates you are asleep... and as you have read- between the train noise and wondering if we were going to get burglarized again- we did not sleep. I hope this review helps you with your decision. I did not read the reviews on this property, I wish I would have- I surely wouldn't have stayed here.
Our other guests have been happy with our home. . We did everything possible to satisfy this guest and he still felt a need to punish us by writing the review he did. We do not advertise that we have air conditioning, because we don't. This guest did not research our amenities thoroughly. The train tracks run along the coast of Oceanside and Carlsbad. Other vacation homes have the same issue. All the multi-million dollar homes along the coast of Oceanside have the same issue. The train tracks! Oceanside is working on a plan along with Santa Fe Railroad to eliminate the train whistles but can't say for sure when they will have that completed. We are very disappointed that this guest felt he had to write a bad review. He did mention our home is clean and close to the beach. We strive to make staying at our home a wonderful experience for our guests.
Very Nice Home
The property was very nice and clean and they also had a welcome basket full of goodies. Unfortunately we stayed while having a heat wave and with no AC the first night was uncomfortable. We ended up going to the store and buying fans. Thankfully once I let the owner know they were nice enough to drop off 4 fans the very next morning. I thought that was very considerate of them. I'm sure once the heat lets up and the breeze starts again an AC will not be needed. The location is great it is within walking distance to downtown which has a lot of coffee shops, restaurants, beaches, movie theater etc. The ONLY downfall with the home is that it is located right in front of the Train Station. The train runs all night and they blow their horn every time it leaves the station. Its very loud. My 4 year old was scared at first and kept covering her ears when she knew it was coming. That was the ONLY downfall. Other than that I would recommend this property. The price is very fair and again it is a very nice home parking is easy and convenient.
Place was great BUT the train is in your backyard.
Train made it hard to sleep. The first night we all woke every time it passed by, every hour! Had to by ear plugs.
Great location - 10 minutes to Legoland, 30 minutes to Sea World, 60 minutes to Disneyland. . Google the location. Two blocks to beach. This home is surrounded by million dollar newer homes two blocks to the beach.
