About Craig Caldwell

My name is Craig Caldwell and I'm the Oceanside home owner. Scottsdale, Arizona is my main residence. The Oceanside home is used by friends and family as well as vacation or short term rental property.

I'm an indedpendent financial constant. I travel extensively both within the U.S., Asia, and western Europe but enjoy relaxing with family and friends at my beautiful Oceanside home and local beaches whenever possible. I spent my summers as a child/young adult surfing and bodysurfing in Southern California and am grateful I can continue on those traditions with my family and kids.

Craig Caldwell purchased this house in 1995

Why Craig Caldwell chose Townsite

I'm my opinion, Oceanside has some of the best beaches in southern California and contains the best harbor in San Diego county. The location is ideally situated between both Orange County and downtown San Diego and is close to entertainment areas including Disneyland, Legoland, Sea World, the Zoo, etc.

The San Diego Coaster train line is walking distance from the house where you can easily get to downtown San Diego and all major sporting venues including Del Mar racetrack and the San Diego Padres baseball park.

What makes this house unique

Oceanside beaches, pier, and harbor and walking distance to restaurants, shops, train station, and library. The actual house is remodeled and can fit a lot of people comfortably. If you like to cook and entertain, you will find the bright, large kitchen exceptionally worthy. The unique outdoor shower is a perfect perk especially after a long day in the sun and sand. The landscaping is sustainable and drought tolerant, but still provides shade and color - decorating the property beautifully.

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been visiting Oceanside for more than 25 years. We have stayed at this property every time. Why did we not try some other place? Because this house and backyard has EVERYTHING. Spacious rooms fully furnished. Other than food, drink and swimwear, there is nothing else we bring. The kitchen? Wow! Plenty of room for three to prepare meals at the same time. The kitchen also has a large dining table. The back yard is large with plenty of patio furniture and a grass yard for the kids to play. This rental has been remodeled at least three times. And the recent update is spectacular. There are so many restaurants within 10 minutes driving time if you choose to dine out. The highway into San Diego is just a few minutes away. You won't find anyone easier to work with than Craig. He is a delight. Very helpful. Our family of 9 (so far) wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!

Beautiful Oceanside rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to this place since I was a little girl. I was able to stay at this beautiful beach home again this past summer with my family. We had a blast. Great location, comfortable, beautifully designed and arranged, walking distance to the beach and great eatery. It caters to all ages and settings. Our family has grown over the years, and this rental was spacious for all of us. We have made some of our best family memories at this rental! I have already booked this home again for next summer :-)

California Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this spacious and attractive beach house bungalow over the past five years and enjoy the convenience and comfort of home. It has a spacious backyard, outside grill, fire pit, and extended sleeping quarters in a bunkhouse-type setting. It's walking distance to the beach, near many restaurants, and shopping. A perfect California retreat!

Best rental in Oceanside

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property year after year. Very clean with no carpet to bother people with allergies. Warm colors and great landscape make this a place to relax. I love the custom outside shower ! Bunk house is a great overflow area for the kids and family. My children love the bunk beds. Master retreat is truly that a retreat with a great bed, large tv and a custom bathroom with large glass shower.

My husband and I have been staying in Oceanside for the past four January's. This house is the best place we've stayed at so far. The kitchen had everything we needed, including spices! The second bedroom and bath were perfect for my sister and husband to stay in for two weeks. We could enjoy walks around the neighborhood, down to catch the "coaster", down to the beach and pier, or over to the street market each Th. We hope to return in the future.
