About owner/property manager

We first looked at -- and liked -- this house some 25 years ago, when it was for sale. We were captivated by the great views, but could not afford it then. When it came back on the market, we jumped at the opportunity, We have a few years left before retirement, so we hope others will enjoy it in the meantime.

The house is an example of Mid-Century Modern post and beam designed by a Los Angeles architect. Its open design with lots of glass brings the outside in.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2011

I would move to this house if I could!

  • 4 of 5

We had an incredible time in Oceanside! We had 2 families consisting of 6 people. LOVE the upstairs/downstairs so adults and kids could be in separate places and have their own space.

The view is stunning from the decks and it is close enough to the beach to be able to walk down to the pier (which our children did each night) and enjoy the sunset. One of the best parts was the raccoons that came out each night in the neighbors tree and visited us! I agree with a previous comment about the cleanliness of the house. The cleaning staff doesn't pay attention to detail and the carpets definitely needs a good cleaning. Araminta- thank you again for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Keeping the carpets clean is a constant struggle -- they are shampooed regularly and spot-cleaned in between rentals. We plan to replace them with something more durable in the fall.

Great place for the family

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at this house. There was plenty of space for our family of 8. The owners were really easy to work with. The amazing view makes you feel close to the beach without the crazy of the beach. It is in a nice quiet residential neighborhood. We would stay here again.

Fabulous week in Oceanside

  • 5 of 5

We were recently very fortunate to stay in this wonderful home. The house had absolutely everything you could need. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The view was fantastic and the walk to the beach is only 15mins 😀

I look forward to visiting again next year.

Perfect Location for Visiting Oceanside and San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with our daughter, her husband and the two grandchildren at these lovely premises which completely met their advertised amenities. The premises were comfortable and could be best described as a home away from home. Dining on the terrace enabled us to enjoy the spectacular view and watch the sun set as we sipped our California wines. It was a quick drive to the pier and beach where we spent a few fun filled afternoons. The location also enabled us to enjoy the attractions of the San Diego area. The price was right and we received more than full value. We will definitely return.

Nice location but the house needs a good cleaning

  • 2 of 5

This house has potential but hasn't reached it yet. The owner lives in Canada and it seems like the owner hasn't been there to keep on top of things. The covers on the chairs in the kitchen were filthy and the backs were falling apart. It looked as if the silverware drawer hadn't been cleaned in years. The trash container outside was overflowing and there was a stream of ants going in and out of the container. There were coffee stains on the carpet which, though vacuumed, needed a good professional cleaning. The blinds in the living room did not function well. This house had a great view of the ocean and was very quiet but the long-distance owner needs to find a better property manager.

Owner's Response: We are obviously concerned Margaret was unhappy about her stay. The house is of course cleaned in between rentals. We thank her for pointing out various problems, which we are working to remedy. As she noted, we are not on site. That is why we urge renters to contact us directly if they have problems. Our phone number and email are in the information folder left at the house.

Map

Oceanside is the northernmost community in San Diego County, along the Pacific coast from downtown San Diego. It was settled in the 1920s, with traditional Spanish-style modest houses so escapes the gentrification of some of the later developed beachfront communities. It is a laid-back town, some say unchanged from the hippie days of the 1960s, although half of the surfers sport grey hair.
