This is our most fantastic property - lovingly owned and maintained as our personal family condo. We recently finished a very large remodel in which virtually every aspect of our condo was renewed. We have taken out all of the carpeting - and replaced with stone travertine flooring - we renovated the kitchen removing cabinets and exposing the view of the beach. We have all new appliances - including a new full size stack washer and dryer. The decor was freshened and all the tv's were replaced with large Flat Screens. What we had before was beautiful - what we offer now is elegant, tasteful and just right for the beach today. We have celebrated every wedding, anniversary, birthday and graduation here since 1988. This property is now incorporated into our Family Estate Plan. It will be rented for seasonal periods as needed to generate enough income to protect the asset for our family. You can sit on our patio as we have all done...- and watch the sun slip into the sea with your glass of champagne or join the others who line the railing of our gated complex - enjoying the last rays of sun dancing on the water. The surfer's all like to take in the last waves while the sun is going down - seabirds diving for fish - shell seekers - walking the sands looking for those perfect shells for the coffee table. It's all right here just steps from our patio.

We are the original owners of this spectacular beach bungalow - in the smallest and most intimate of the San Miguel's 4 phase development. Phase 1 was built in 1988. There are only 59 condos in phase I and Phase I does NOT allow short term rentals. The shortest stay is 90 nights - per the HOA rules. This particular condo is one of the largest of all San Miguel condo units - boasting 1250 sq feet of space on the end of the building with no one on 3 sides! It has a huge over sized private patio - and views of the pier and beach directly from the main living area. The bedrooms back up to a quiet inner quad away from the street. There are 2 bedrooms - with two full bathrooms - plus an in unit full sized stack set washer/dryer - and a fully equipped and nicely functional kitchen with all appliances including gas range/oven, built in micro, dishwasher/disposal, refrigerator with ice maker.

Our master bedroom has a New SUPER deluxe Cal King pillow top bed - A large new Flat Screen TV, a large Walk In closet - personal safe - full dual sink vanity, private bath area with tub shower and toilet. The room itself is huge - and has double doors that open to the central hallway. We have Cable TV with DVD throughout the unit. WIFI broadband high speed- and an in room office desk - set up with our printer and modem. Black out curtains drape over the mini blinds in both bedrooms to make a dark room for light sleepers.

Our guest bedroom is the usual size - with wall mounted flat screen - brand new queen bed - dresser and nightstands - mirrored wardrobe.

The living room has a custom sleeper sofa for the guests .. Plus a lovely leather recliner chair for reading and relaxing. Our dining room table is a family antique - with two extra leaves.

The patio has recliners - chairs - table - BBQ (new) - umbrella and more -

Our garage is underground - double gated for added security - and features one large locked storage bin for beach equipment. Plus two parking spaces - dedicated to our unit. Bike storage is available in our shared locked storage rooms.

We carefully decorated it to meet our tastes in soothing pastels - cream, buff, taupe, turquoise. Everything is good quality - because frankly we like quality. We seek gracious guests who will respect the care we have given our home - and enjoy it while we are busy elsewhere.

Our rates are based on a max of 2 persons - however additional guests up to the HOA max of 6 are acceptable at an additional charge. This is NOT a monthly rental as only 90 day rentals are permitted in this phase of the San Miguels. Please note that if you attempt to book for less than 90 days on the automatic booking feature, your reservation will not be accepted.

4-6 month or one year FURNISHED ONLY leases are also avail -at special rates - please inquire!

No Smoking NO Pets No Commercial activities

NO Exceptions.

There is no TAX.

Damage waiver protection insurance is required for every rental - max length of lease is 6 months at a time. - no deductible - accidental damage only. We also take a very small $250 deposit which is fully refundable - this is against any payperview charges, excess energy fees, phone charges or HOA fines issued against the unit during your stay. No charges will result in a full refund.

You will not be disappointed in this gracious - open floor plan - just steps to the beach .. in an intimate uncrowded private enclave.

Why Cindy Bashford chose Townsite

We love the beach - and we love the location ... it is truly central to all that So. Cal has to offer. The beach itself has fire rings and volley ball courts - public restrooms, picnic areas - a beach playground -outdoor theater and of course our huge public fishing pier - with Ruby's on the end. Alcohol and dogs are both prohibited on this beach.

What makes this condo unique

This is a world class surfing area - check us out on all the surfer websites -world wide. The waves are classic - for short board surfing and boogie boarding. The beach has a couple of different names - but the cross street of Surfrider Way and Breakwater Way can help you locate it in surfing guides.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I contacted the owners of this lovely condo as I was looking for a 'home away from home' for my son and I for the full summer June - Aug 2013. We are a military family being stationed to the East Coast. My spouse had to check in by 4 June in DC and we had to move out of our house on base and ship our household goods. My son was coming home to California from college for the summer with a secured job and I had commitments of my own at my own job, not to mention my 1st grandchild's 1st birthday party!! So, I decided to stay behind in Calfornia for the summer, but had to find a fully furnished and comfortable place.

Of course the location of this property is prime!! Can't beat the ocean right outside your door! The unit is very spacious, clean, and comfortable for a long stay. There is everything you need!! The only thing we had to bring along were our personal items. The owners have been so accommodating with any requests. I had asked about possibly getting a screen door installed for the front door for better air circulation and guess what....there is now a screen door and it's great!! Linda's husband, Wayne, has been the go to guy whenever I needed anything fixed or if I had any questions. Always got back to me and ensured things got taken care of. I've felt very safe here and it is very quiet in the evenings. Since my son and I are still working, it's nice that we can get to sleep in peace! I must say, the owners are the best!! They have been very gracious!! You can tell they have had this unit in their family for years and take good care of it.

I would most definintely recommend this unit to anyone who loves the beach life, needs a fully furnished, comfortable and beautiful place!! You are sure to enjoy it!

Owner's Response: Carla is the perfect guest - gracious and thoughtful of our lovely condo. She and her son have taken good stewardship during the summer in residence .. and it shows! Yes - we have owned this condo since the day it was built, and it has been the locale for so many of our treasured family remembrances we couldn't begin to recount them all. Now we are sharing it with strangers -who we hope will also make wonderful memories to last a lifetime. There is a side benefit too .. our mom is not well - and the rental of this unit helps provide assistance for her. Not only are we sharing our family beach retreat - we are also helping mom while we do it .. Thanks Carla for your lovely review - and for taking good care of our condo during your stay. If you come back to California - we hope you will stay with us again.
