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.

Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful Oceanside property! The home is so well equipped with all we needed, including beach towels, sand toys, Boogie boards and beach chairs that we hardly had to bring anything! It was wonderful! The rooftop deck was one of our favorite evening "hang outs" to watch the sun set or just sit and relax! The home is very spacious and the bedrooms are beautifully appointed! The time we spent at the home was amazing and great memories were made! David and Coleen were very kind and helpful when i asked questions in advance of our stay! The beach is literally steps away and our kids played for hours there! Oceanside also has lots of activities if that is what you desire! Legoland is very closeby as are the Premium Outlets! We plan to return and can hardly wait!

The house was absolutely perfect for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 traveled to Oceanside and shared this home with my brothers family, my other brother and his girlfriend, and my dad and his girlfriend. This was our first trip altogether so we weren't sure how it would go, however, because of this house, it was very enjoyable. There is enough space so that you do not always have to be together. It's broken up very nicely. When we wanted to be together we could, and when we wanted to have some quiet time and just relax, we could do that too!

The only thing that was a little bit of a bummer was the walk to the beach. The beach was very rocky so you have to walk down almost to the pier for some nice beach area, and it was still pretty rocky. I myself did not mind the walk, but with young children it would have been nice to not have to walk so far. Sometimes my family drove. Other than that, it was a pretty perfect vacation, and really that did not have to do anything with the house itself. I highly recommend this home for a relaxing and enjoyable family vacation!

Just as described on-line and more!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a fiftieth anniversary celebration with our kids and grandkids. Pleasant places to gather for meals, monopoly game, banter, etc., yet ample space for anytime anyone needed their own 'space.' Best equipped and furnished home we have ever rented. Only drawback--closest beaches with sand are a few blocks away; but Coleen had been up front about this. Her communication with us was always friendly, open and prompt.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location to hit all the adventure you want on vacation. Easy access to the freeway, and so fun to be so close to the beach. The owners are incredibly helpful. They made things so nice and easy to stay there. The roof top deck is so fun, we had dinner up there several nights, and would watch the sunset every night from the top. If we ever go back to Southern California, we will be checking to see if they are booked. This was our first time ever staying in a VRBO, and we wouldn't do it any other way now. Thank you for the great experience and many memories in your beautiful home!

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!!
