Townsite Delight!

  • 5 of 5

As the end to our time in Oceanside fast approached last week, we thought about why we had had such a good time. The best we could conclude was that we all felt very much at home in Coleen's and David's place. But, enough of the syrupy stuff-let's earn the five stars! Since we travel a bit, we've developed a number of ways that we rate where we stay. First is value: just do the math in your head reader, and you will come to the same conclusion that we did-first star. Next is location, which can be problematic as the standard for a star here is walking distance to donuts and craft beer, with the addition of kombucha for the accompanying daughter-in law. Thanks to SK's, Mike's and the Living Tea Brewery, second star is snagged. Third and fourth stars are a parlay-comfy beds and quiet(from the early morning grandkids). Duly awarded as the layout put us in the master suite in the front away from the noise in the bedrooms and the kitchen/family room in the back of the house-grandparents slept in every day. The fifth star may be a bit odd, but we like to move in and really unpack, so it's awarded for the abundance of hangers in the house, which some places just don't have. Lastly, a big shoutout to Coleen and David for having a fully equipped kitchen(for that matter the entire house was fully equipped)-we only had to send out for the obvious food and fixings for graham cracker houses. Hidden: The Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad. Safe travels...

Oceanside Treat

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was flawless. The house was just as described and the photos were representative (not like many that are forced perspective). It was clean, and the house directions/rules were spot on. It was well equipped and the sporting toys were great; we especially liked the game table. The living room was terrific for watching the Super Bowl (while I roasted a turkey in the kitchen that had everything I needed - except for salt and pepper). We have no complaints (except for the too soft bed in the smaller master bdr). Thank you, Coleen and David! We would do it again!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Coleen and David,

Thank you for sharing your PERFECT home with us. Our family was able to enjoy an after Christmas treat to celebrate Joe's 76th birthday! Everyone had a fantastic time. We have never stayed in a house that had it all - bikes with bike locks, beach toys and wagon, beach chairs, boogie boards, two refrigerators and fully equipped kitchen and large spacious areas to visit and play games. Everyday we enjoyed watching a magnificent sunset and dolphins on the rooftop deck. We have precious memories to last a lifetime. We hope to return again! Thank you Coleen for your time to text and call and make sure we had a perfect visit. You are the BEST!

Amazing House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for providing a cozy home so close to the beach! We loved having so many fun things to do, so close by. We had a beach day and it was wonderful having lots of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc. The house was stocked with most everything we would ever need. It was great having everything we would need to cook with.

It was so fun meeting David and Coleen, and having them greet us. They're both so fun, friendly , nice, and energetic. We loved having a face with the emails and texts. Thank you so much for everything! Beautiful, beautiful home. Loved the location! We'll be back for sure!

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 Townsite

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!!!

Coleen and David

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.

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!!
