About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our Las Palmas del Mar is a fully upgraded and remodeled ocean view 1 bedroom 1 bath family friendly unit with approximately 800 sq feet of living space. We have White Water views from our bedroom - and our Balcony which features a dining counter with Swivel Captains Chairs for outdoor entertaining. Inside you will be immediately soothed by the high end remodel which features custom Travertine Stone Floors, complemented by Granite and Stone counters, Crown Molding with contemporary paint in soothing muted tones. We have all brand new stainless steel appliances in our kitchen -and all new pots and pans and dining equipment too. We are proud of our state of the art bathroom featuring a glass bowl, top end toilet with dual flush - travertine tub surround, custom vanity with dresser drawers built into the front. Our bedroom was redone lengthening the hallway by an extra 18' and adding a door which gives privacy for up to 4 persons and created a walk in closet too. In the bedroom we have a sitting area with comfortable chair to enjoy the water view. We offer flat screen HD TV wall mounted for extra space and expanded cable. The living room has a top grain leather sofa, Balinese chairs opposite Balinese cube tables which are easy to move for the quick use of the wall bed. A Hunter Bahamas Palm Frond ceiling fan is at your disposal in the Living Room. Our fireplace is a legitimate heater with remote operation and thermostat control. It is customized with our 42' HD Flat Screen TV mounted above it and recessed control panel below for the DVD and a slightly raised hearth. Very dramatic and very functional. This is by far the nicest remodeled unit we have seen in at North Coast Village and the reason why we made it our own. It is family friendly with floors that are sanitized with our Shark Steam cleaning system - 99% germ free. We sealed the stone floors this year and our couch can be easily be wiped off. Our Balinese chairs can also be steam cleaned where/when needed. There are no sharp edges on our cube coffee tables and they are light and easy to move when you need to. We bought this unit and closed escrow in April 2011, put it into service in May and are looking forward to enjoying it ourselves in our golden years. Until then, it is avail for our guests to enjoy.

About Wayne B. Cowie

Here we are .. the Seymour sisters-circa 1979 at my airline graduation. Cindy on the left and me, Linda, on the right . We are both flight attendants for major airlines. She formerly was Western Airlines - now Delta and I was Continental - now United. We together have nearly 80 years of combined service and have stayed overnight in every imaginable good and bad hotel. We think we have a great grip on what a customer wants from their accommodations. We are service oriented and we have been partners in beach rentals since 1987. While this is the personal unit of myself, (Linda) and my husband Wayne -we operate in cooperation with Cindy and her husband Gregg to offer a total of 5 beach units all advertised on VRBO. We personally attend to each of our rentals - have maintenance and cleaning staff who are dedicated to our individual units and know them intimately. We refresh our units twice a year and maintain as tight a ship on cleanliness as is possible during a busy summer session. In winter we offer both Seasonal and short term rentals. We each have two kids - mine have now graduated from universities and hers just entering the school system as a late in life parent. We pride ourselves in being able to customize your experience to provide you with just the right amount of amenity to make your family comfortable. Almost anything can be arranged for you, from setting up the portable crib or futon for a late arriving guest, to removing the extra equipment for our senior seasonal snowbirds to enjoy our unit without extra clutter.

Wayne B. Cowie purchased this condo in 2011

Why Wayne B. Cowie chose Townsite

We are lifetime residents of Carlsbad/Oceanside having graduated from UCSD and USC - bought our homes here - raised our families here. We love the beach - and all it has to offer. We live just 6 miles away.

What makes this condo unique

We walk to everything - work out in the fitness center - enjoy the pools year round. We had the uniquely wonderful experience of hosting our oldest daughter's wedding on the grounds - in what was a spectacular October wedding.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"July 13, 2013

We had a wonderful respite from the brutal Arizona sun-pounding! We explored several beaches but loved The Strand, which is also the closest. The beach cart was well employed.

We had fun trying Vietnamese Pho and Thai Table, but Rockin' Baja $3 Happy Hour Tacos were hard to beat!

Took the Surfliner train to San Juan Capistrano for a day trip and did some back to school shopping at the outlet mall in Carlsbad.

All in all, a fabulous family get away! Sincerely, Laurie M*****l"

Two years in a row

We stayed in this apartment last year for 4 nights. My family and I had a great time and we returned this year again. I have two small children who loves the beach which is conveniently just a short walk from the condo. The complex has a very nice pool as well. We had a great time again.

What are great little place for our family of four. The condo was nicely updated, and the owners were very accommodating. They left great instructions and even offered suggestions for local eateries. Oceanside is a great town. We hope to be back some day.

We had at incredible time at this location. The condo was an excellent place to enjoy the beach. Very clean, great appliances and accommodations. North Coast Village was also a great facility. Beautiful pool area, hot tub, grills to cookout, great scenery, and right on the beach. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect place to stay in Oceanside

  • 5 of 5

My husband, college aged son and I stayed in the nice condo for four days in March 2016. It was exactly what we were looking for and really exceeded our expectations. The unit was so clean and comfortable. The owners were a joy to deal with and the facilities were great.

We loved being so close to the beach and the pools and hot tubs were great. Not many people staying in the property so we really had the place to ourselves.

We really enjoyed our stay and if we ever return to Oceanside I hope to stay in this unit again. I highly recommend it.
