About Coleen and David

Welcome to our vacation home at the Beach!! We reside in New Jersey and fell in love with Oceanside, California. It was a dream come true and a slice of Heaven to own this gorgeous home across the street from the Pacific Ocean. We love to vacation here at the Beach and dread leaving to return to work back East. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do!!

Coleen and David purchased this house in 2013

Why Coleen and David chose Oceanside

We fell in love with this home the moment we walked in and so will you. Once inside and standing on the rooftop deck we knew this was the one. Oceanside is in a great area, centrally located between downtown San Diego and the LA/Hollywood Area. We love to drive up the coast line and stop along the way. The weather here is phenomenal all year round with magnificent sunsets.

What makes this house unique

The best feature is the price. You will pay 1/2 the rent with all the amenities, including ocean views, sounds of the waves and ocean breeze. Larger than most beachfront property and you just need to cross the street. We have supplied your home away from home, with everything you need to enjoy your stay, including a complimentary bottle of wine to watch the sunsets on the rooftop deck!!! You will find everything you need to enjoy your time at the beach, exploring San Diego, or just relaxing. Our home is in a great area. You can walk across to the beach, walk or bike to the pier and local dining establishments or just have a few friends in for dinner! Everything you could think of is in the fully stocked kitchen and dining area to entertain! There are two fireplaces to create a great ambience. Please be sure to let us know how you enjoyed your time here! PS... view the video, it's the 25th picture in the scroll!

Relax, Enjoy and Celebrate!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This note is long over due and I apologize for that. I can't believe it's been just about one month since we got back from vacation.



I want to tell you how wonderful it was to stay at your home. We had a fabulous time! It was perfect. The online pictures really do not do it justice.



My parents ended up going with us so they had the 2nd master bedroom, my husband and I had the 1st master bedroom and my daughter used the bedroom without the bunk beds. My parents are in their early 70's and they handled the steps upstairs just fine.



We loved the kitchen and used a lot of the pots and pans. We also used the grill and the freezer in the garage. We actually ate in quite a bit and my Mom made bacon & eggs every morning. (She spoils my Dad)



The house is so great for many reasons .... location, garage entrance, hose outside, lovely kitchen, washer and dryer, quiet neighborhood, friendly neighbors and it is amazing how quiet it is. That is probably the best part. Our group ranged from 25 years to 73 years old, so we were up and down at various times of the day and night and I never heard anyone. My health isn't the greatest so I managed to stay back at the house a few days while the others did sightseeing. My parents have more energy than I do. LOL!



I would love to spend a week at your house and do nothing - no touristy stuff. We really didn't enjoy the beach as much as I wanted to but I thought it might be the last chance to take my parents on a trip.



So, again THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

Back for the 3rd Year in a Row!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time our multi-generational family has stayed at Coleen & David's Oceanside Beach House. There are several reasons we keep coming back: (6) the sights and sounds of the ocean, of course! (5) the house itself is perfect for a large family, (4) it is very clean, (3) the house is well equipped - there's really nothing you need to bring except for food, (2) the value of the rental compared to other similar properties can't be beat. Reason number (1) - Coleen is hands down the best property owner I've ever worked with! (And I've stayed in a lot of vacation rentals.) She is always responsive and has worked with me when plans have changed. She and David are honest and provide excellent customer service which is so important to me. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Joy. There is no better compliment than a repeat guest! I truly want my home to be your home even if just for a week. David and I are so blessed to have such exceptional guests stay at our home. Thank you again for the great compliments! I look forward to hearing from you soon. Wishing you all the best! Coleen and David

The home is beautiful and very homey!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in your home was the best! The home is well maintained and well stocked from the bikes to the wagon filled with beach toys! The only thing we had to bring was food, beach towels and linens were provided. The home was perfect for our family, the bedrooms upstairs were ideal for nap times for young and old 😉�We spent a lot of time on the deck from morning coffee to evening wine. We will be back!!

We hope you do keep our information and come and visit us again soon!! Coleen and David

The house was nice and it was close to the ocean but not as close to swimmable beaches.

  • 4 of 5

The house was spacious and accommodated our family well. It was stocked with basic items such that we just needed groceries and extra paper towels. We discovered some issues with the house not being as clean as expected when we arrived and also some non-functional maintenance items.

Owner's Response: As with all guests, we do contact you during your stay to make sure everything is good. David and I are disappointed with your review. You never mentioned anything to us during your stay about the house not being clean or anything not working. I am inclined to feel that you responded as such because I confronted you about a broken fridge draw and shower head, which was not reported. I'd also like to point out that I didn't charge you for these broken items. I wish I could please everyone but as you can see from the other 80 reviews, this must have been a fluke incident. I hope you give us another chance. We have many repeat guests and that in itself is the ultimate compliment.

Perfect location! Outstanding accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Coleen's home. We love all the amenities she has taken care to provide. The beach equipment, the bikes, the kitchen accessories. This year we took advantage of the backgammon/chess/checkers board and had epic battles between multiple family members! We even want to look into buying our own set! Thank you so much for more fabulous memories. There's so much to do in Oceanside and Coleen's private and luxurious home is the perfect place to connect, unwind, and enjoy each other. Thanks, Coleen!

Excellent location for family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and accommodates young children with plastic eating utensils and wagon full of beach toys. My grandchildren loved it! The kitchen is well equipped- we mostly used outdoor grill because of warm weather. We would love to come back next summer to enjoy the wonderful beach and rooftop terrace which was perfect for a glass of wine and sunset viewing at the end of busy days at Sea World and Safari park.

A perfect family beach house.

  • 5 of 5

Great location near end of Strand walkway to pier. Access to beach either North or South was good. Plenty of interior space for families. A clean and relatively modern house with excellent furnishings.

The Grandkids really liked watching sunsets from the rooftop deck. Thanks for the pleasant stay.

This beautiful private house is located across the street from the beach and just about 1/2 the price of beachfront property. You have the views, sounds and breeze from the Pacific Ocean. Walk across the street to the beach where you can surf, swim, jog, or walk down the largest wooden pier on the west coast. You can fish and dine on the pier. Stroll down to the center of town or Coast Hwy where you can dine at many wonderful restaurants with beautiful ocean views, stroll in and out of the many local shops and/or go antiquing. You can also hop on a train and go from LA to San Diego. We are minutes from LegoLand, Oceanside Harbor and Carlsbad Flower Fields. Short drive to Del Mar Race Track, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Wild Animal Park and LaJolla. This location can't be beat!!
