About Lisa

Our family lives in Lake Arrowhead , CA in the San Bernardino Mountains. We love our condo and hope to retire there one day.

Lisa purchased this condo in 2009

Why Lisa chose Townsite

We have always enjoyed the beach. Both my wife and I spent time in Oceanside as teenagers. We have always loved the Oceanside and San Diego area. The North Coast Village resort is on the beach. We wanted a place where we could directly access the beach and be close to the many attactions and San Diego county activities. Oceanside has it all for us and we love the North Coast complex.

What makes this condo unique

There are so many things to do! We enjoy walking to the pier and having breakfast at Ruby's Diner. We love walking to the harbor and into town. We also ride our bikes on the trails. Watching the sun set from our condo balcony is a highlight. Since we live about 2 hours away, we enjoy the condo throughout the year. There are so many fun activities throughout the year and it is so easy to enjoy the outdoors in this beautiful location.

Best of all worlds

  • 4 of 5

Clean and quiet. Close to everything. Comfortable and well equipped. Beautiful interior garden to the condos. A little 1970's-esq, but we're 1960s-esq. Our favorite day, drive over to Capistrano park and play tennis in a seemingly undiscovered little park, rent paddleboards in the harbor, rent wetsuit and use the boogie boards from the condo in the waves, fall into the hot tub, nap, walk to the harbor for a fun dinner. We also recommend renting bikes from Jim at Socal bikes. There are plenty of bike paths along the roads as well as dedicated trails.

As Promised!! Updated, clean, comfortable condo!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our stay was just fine. Condo is very well equipped with every thing you would need inside the condo as well as everything you would need outside or at the beach! Prior reviews mentioned poor administration experiences, long walk from parking garage; they all over reacted! From the parking spot to the elevator was 20 yards max and from the elevator to the condo wasn't worth complaining (condo is in the center of the "B" building which has fifteen units--it isn't that far of a walk)! The office staff was very friendly; actually let us in fifteen minutes early and waved a parking ticket ( I backed in our spot which I later found out isn't allowed). The administration office staff couldn't of been nicer and they were fun to visit with!

We felt very safe at the condo and around the entire Oceanside beach area! You can walk four blocks or so to the marina with a variety of restaurants, bars, shops, and ice cream store as well as a few blocks the other direction to the Oceanside pier. People are walking, jogging, exercising, and biking on the beach front drive and sidewalk from sunrise to sunset. The Coaster train station is just a short drive away as well as a wide variety of restaurants and shops in the downtown area of Oceanside.

My only slight complaint is that it took quite a long time on the front end (in my opinion) to get all the paperwork completed and receive our instructions so hopefully they can be a little more efficient with that part of the process. As far as receiving our deposit back, I got it back just short of two weeks which I think is very reasonable. I really don't have any negatives; closer to the beach or beach front would have been nicer been then the price would have been much higher, right!!!

Great customer service!

  • 5 of 5

I inquired about availability, but they don't have anything open for the dates that I'm traveling to the area with my family. However, Frank offered to forward my request on to other property owners in the area for me and also sent me a list of his units with upcoming availability. Great customer service! I will definitely look into booking with them when I visit the area again.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience here. The location is FANTASTIC, the grounds are amazing and the Tommy Bahama decor in the condo is very cute. It's a lovely, short walk through the grounds to the beach to catch a beautiful sunset every night. We enjoyed walks to the pier for breakfast and to the marina for boat rentals, lunch and souveniers. Every staff member we encountered was helpful and friendly. This was the perfect size for my husband, daughter and I. The condo had everything we needed for our stay of four days. I do agree with the review below that more fans would be nice or even a mobile AC unit. We will definitely visit this location again as we would like to bring our whole family back. Our overall experience was great and we would recommend to a friend. We feel very fortunate to have found this little gem.

Great location but Adminstration needs serious improvment

  • 4 of 5

The location - The location is great. You are renting this condo to have a relaxing beach vacation

and it's really all about the location. As the review below mine states – the condo is in the middle of the complex but it is still has Peek a Boo views. My children and I counted the steps to the beach and it’s like 300 to the sand so you cannot argue with that. The actual beach itself is very nice. Clean and a typical So-Cal beach. There are a few things to do within walking distance / to the Boardwalk. Bikes, Paddle board, ECT, but we did not do that this time. This is not a huge city and does not have all of the amenities that San Diego or South Orange County would but more relaxing and quiet and that’s what we were it ‘looking for. You will be carrying you food / grocery’s to the condo which is on the second floor and it’s not ideal but doable. We had a lot of food for 10 days and it sucked bringing everything up but a part of the process.

As for the condo itself – It’s small. Sleeps only four. More would be a stretch. They admit that. The condo has really everything you need to have a nice stay. My wife did not like the Electric stove but certainly just a preference. Not update or remodeled but fairly nice and clean. Bed was comfortable and sleeper sofa was normal. No central air. I didn’t think about that but it’s at the beach so they did not build these with air. There is one fan in the bedroom but for us not enough. We like to sleep in the cold. Just a preference.

You will not have a ton of space for food but didn’t bother us too much. It’s about vacation. I would however, liked to see more towels. Not enough for a family of 3 or four - for a week. We had to do laundry to wash towels.

The Administration process is seriously inefficient and needs to be corrected. It took forever for us to receive the Lease agreement and they almost – almost double booked or lost our reservation. The deposit refund process is SLOW…AT A SNAIL’S PACE SLOW. It seems to me that the actual owners do not give the property management company the authority to write checks or issue refunds. Ours’s took exactly 1 month to be refunded. I was told that the owners write the checks from there account but the check came in property Co name. Would I stay here again - Yes but make them put in writing I will have refund within 7-10 days after stay.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed our condo! We try to be very clear on what to expect when you stay in the condo. The location of the complex, on the beach , is within 300 steps. The location is certainly a plus for beach lovers. We appreciate the comment on supplying the condo with extra fans. There are two ceiling fans (dining room and bedroom) and free-standing fans. Air conditioning was not put in the complex when it was built. We enjoy the beach breeze coming into the condo, but certainly can add fans (and towels) to the unit to help our guests be more comfortable. We apologize for any frustration in the booking of the unit. We are also working to streamline our guest services in getting our contracts and deposits to our guests in a timely manner.
