About Kathryn

We have been renting vacation homes for over 10 years now and love it! We love traveling this way and renting our homes out. We added our Oceanside home a couple years ago and are soon going to be offering if full time.

Kathryn purchased this house in 2010

Why Kathryn chose Oceanside

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

In addition to the charm and gorgeous details of an original, historic craftsman beach home, this home has fantastic outdoor spaces. The front porch, the back patio, and especially the brand new roof top patio just add to the delight of this centrally located home. Easy access to the beach, as well as to all of downtown Oceanside. You will not have to bring anything! At our home, all of the beach accessories you need, as well as beach cruisers, boogie boards, and a couple surf boards are all provided.

Great Craftman Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our needs during a family trip to Camp Pendleton for a wedding. Less than 4 miles to the wedding venue on the base. Plenty of room for 6 adults and 4 children. The weather was cool and rainy, but house was cozy and we were still able to get in a few trips to the beach thanks to the wonderful large wagon to carry a small child and the beach gear. House had a lovely covered porch for outdoor visiting. Thanks for a nice stay in Oceanside. I would definitely recommend this rental.

It is a nice quaint house. The house did need, though, some much needed repair and yard cleaner.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the quaint feeling of the house. We had 11 adults there in the house and all but one had a bed. He slept up on the upper deck lounger and enjoyed it. There were plenty of beach towels and beach "toys" which was great. Didn't get to go to the beach much as the weather was cold and overcast the whole time. We were there May 31-June 4, 2017. But we still went one day, which was fun anyway. We did daily walks to DQ for ice cream runs--fun. Walked to get foot massages and massages just down the street and a few blocks away. Was disappointed that it was not a beach house, because it was not close to the beach, really. We appreciated Lauren for her help with any problems, which was minor. Our family had a great time being there in the house and Oceanside. The purpose of gathering there in California was to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday with our 8 children and their spouses. Not all children and spouses could make it, but most did and it was a great time. A very comfortable feeling in the house. Just suggest the owner do some fixing up of the door screens and master bathroom rain shower head and make sure the grounds and all patios & front porch be cleaner. Anyone would enjoy staying here, though.

Owner's Response: Quick response to this renter. They were super nice and I'd love to have them back. Addressing the yard, it is mostly xeriscape consisting of beachy looking grasses shrubs and ice plants with shredded bark mulch all meant to pay homage to the coastal plant life like you might encounter discovering a hidden beach off the beaten track. It's meticulously maintained to look that way.

A great way to experience Oceanside

  • 5 of 5

Pros:

Ample room for our family vacation with 8 adults and 3 small children.

The rooftop patio is a unique, charming space.

The noise from the trains was bearable since the property is 2 or 3 blocks away from the tracks.

Within walking distance of many small local businesses, including a fun cafe called Banana Dang.

Cons (only minor issues):

The instructions for staying at the property were not concisely organized, and it was a laborious to sift through.

A broken door knob, spice rack, and finicky WiFi access point made our stay slightly less convenient, but these didn't greatly affect our stay.

Beautiful Craftsman in Oceanside

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful craftsman in Oceanside was fully equipped with everything we needed. There was plenty of room for 3 couples. We enjoyed having lots of space in the living room and dining room which were comfortable, beautifully decorated, relaxing and comfortable. This home had everything we needed and a short walk to our favourite Oceanside restaurant and the night market. The neighbourhood is beautiful and quiet at night. The rooftop deck is an absolute bonus!

Thank you for everything!
