About Kathryn

Kathryn purchased this house in 2010

Why Kathryn chose Townsite

The beach has been one of our favorite family vacations since our children were small. We are so pleased to be able to share the delights of Oceanside and San Diego county with all of you!

What makes this house unique

Words won’t do this justice...

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I were looking for a home to celebrate our parents 50th wedding anniversary. Having family in Oceanside we needed to find a large enough place to handle 11+ people. It needed to be both child and senior friendly, warm, spacious and well equipped. It had to be able to have a formal dinner as well as a mellow, sun decked BBQ. We saw this historic home and all it offered and knew it was the one. You will need little more than your suitcase of clothes. It’s got everything and more. It’s age brings nuance and character...we loved it. Nothing was a big deal; door handles turning an off way for example. We had a small issue with the TV and Luanne was quick to take the call and help us through it. We will be back! It’s location to the center of town was perfect but it’s being tucked into a quiet residential community made it feel so very homey. Book this if you want to feel like you just came home...

A wonderful family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We loved this quaint, lovely home in the middle of Oceanside. It is old, but obviously, lovingly cared for. Eleven of our family stayed here for a week. The house is very well supplied. We called management twice, and they answered and helped us solve our problem both times. The bedroom with 3 beds was perfect for our son's family of 5. We all had privacy , yet shared quality time together. It's a short walk to the beach. We really enjoyed the roof patio. The management was fantastic and we would love to stay here again.

Spacious Craftsman is all Anyone would Want

  • 5 of 5

We don't often rent a house, but on this occasion we chose to because we needed to accommodate a large party for a wedding. The house is beautiful, historic, and spacious. Everyone in our party had a bed. The kitchen was bright and light. One of the most amazing features of this house was the rooftop deck that allowed us a gathering spot to visit the two nights we were there. The only con would be that we had only one key and it would have been nice to have more than one as our party broke up at the wedding and returned to the house at different times during the night, but our property manager, Kathryn, was very thoughtful and accommodating to allow us early entry to the house the night of the rehearsal dinner. A long list of recommended restaurants was provided and it was very helpful. We are so happy we rented this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying! We have a coded garage door opener to allow our guests to split up doing different activities while still able to come and go by accessing the house with the key code.
