Property description

Come enjoy the beach and all the delights of southern California and Oceanside!

Delightful beach home! This fantastic 4 bedroom home is just a few blocks from the beach, delightful downtown Oceanside, and the wonderful train station! Part of Oceanside's charm is the fabulous train system that can take you to all of southern California's attractions in a flash! Enjoy the fresh ocean breezes from the roof top patio, the beach, explore the shops of Oceanside, or head for San Diego, or Orange County. All you need for your fantastic vacation!

Originially built in the 1920's, this gorgeous home only 4 blocks from the beach, has original wood floors, windows, and craftsman built in's and panelling. The walls are thick plaster which makes rooms virtually sound proof. The kitchen and bath are remodeled and modern, yet preserve the Craftsman style of the home. This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home is over 2400 sq ft. and with huge closets, has plenty of room for your family's beach vacation.

Enjoy lots of outdoor space in addition! There is a great front porch for enjoying the quiet neighborhood, as well as a back patio and an additional roof top patio to enjoy the sunset over the ocean and the cool ocean breeze as you bbque and eat outside.

Both bathrooms are quite large with bathtubs and showers. The master has separated jetted tub/ shower.

Two of the bedrooms are very large with lots of floor space for a few extras! (We provide 2 blow up mattresses and bedding for those few additional people.)

The kitchen has new stainless appliances, large gas stove/oven, ice maker, refrigerator, freezer.

There is a private, hot outdoor shower in the back to take all that extra sand off and to get the kids handled for good!.

All the beach towels, toys, chairs, umbrella, wagon, boogie boards you need! Keep your car open and just use all of ours!
2 Beach bikes and kid trailer also there for your use.

Tyson Park is a wonderful place for the kids to play IF they get bored on the sand. The beach is beautiful with great surf for the surfer in the family.

Just a short 4-5 block walk to the beach.

** We are redoing bedrooms/decor to be completely ready for your summer vacation! Look back soon for our new pictures of the remaining bedrooms **

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Townsite, Oceanside, CA, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
