About the property

2 Bedrooms 2 Baths in Oceanfront North Coast Village #A-116

Enjoy the beach and all the attractions Southern California has to offer from this luxurious, single story beach condo at North Coast Village!! This spacious 2-bedroom, 2 bath, ocean view condo has been upgraded and meticulously maintained for your comfort and convenience.

The kitchen has new cabinetry with black granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances (refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher). All dishes, cooking and eating utensils, and a wide variety of kitchen gadgets are supplied, including Toaster, Coffee Maker, single serving French Press, Kitchen Aid Mixer, Food Processor, Crock Pot, Juicer, Corelle dishes (set of 8), many covered glass food containers, and a multitude of other kitchen items that will be appreciated by the accomplished chef.

The front room is equipped with an electric fireplace with black granite surround that provides both ambiance and heat. The new 47' LED TV has DVR with premium HBO, Showtime and CineMax channels. High Speed Internet (30 Mbs) with WiFi, and 4 telephones with free long distance within the US will satisfy your communication needs. Just bring your own lap top and you're ready to go.

Relax on the comfy white leather sofa that also opens into a full size bed for additional sleeping space. The electric fireplace provides ambience but can also supply heat when desired. A small, glass top desk is a convenient place to set up your lap top.

Two master suites, each with a full bath and plenty of closet space, are all on one level, so there are no stairs to climb within the unit. TV's were all upgraded in May 2013, with a 36' wall mounted LCD in one master suite (the one with the King Bed) and a wall mounted 25' LED in the second bedroom (the one with two Full beds).

This unit has one reserved parking space beside the elevator in a gated and secure underground parking garage. Non-reserved parking is available for additional cars in the same parking garage in 24 hour spaces. The complex has a laundry room, two heated pools, two jacuzzis, a fitness center (with cardio, weights and sauna), a putting green, a club room (with pool tables and ping pong), and gorgeous grounds with exotic tropical flowers and landscaping, streams that meander alongside winding paths throughout the complex, numerous waterfalls and ponds, including a Koi pond.

North Coast Village is the premier destination for couples and/or families who want to relax on the beach and experience all the attractions Southern California has to offer. Located midway between San Diego and Los Angeles, North Coast Village provides the perfect base for seeing such favorites as DisneyLand, Knott's Berry Farms, Universal Studios, Magic Mountain, Hollywood, the Mission at San Juan Capistrano, as well as the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Wild Animal Park, Balboa Park, Sea World, The Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institute of Oceanography, La Jolla Cove, Lego Land, the Palomar Observatory, the Carlsbad Flower Fields, the Mission San Luis Rey, or the Del Mar Race Track.

A very nice and conveniently located condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with another couple made a last minute decision to move our vacation from Florida to southern CA due to Irma. We were lucky to find such a very nice place to stay on such short notice. My wife and I have stayed in many beach front condos over the years and we found this to be among the nicest we have enjoyed. It is very well maintained and was situated in a very convenient location. The owner obviously takes great pride in maintaining a top notch vacation home and we hope to stay there again some day.

Very pleased

  • 5 of 5

We really did enjoy our time at this unit. It was neat and clean, had 2 bathrooms for each bedroom and plenty of room in living and dining area. It was very close to The Strand - a walk along the beach and Oceanside Pier. Had a great time.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent 10 days here. We found the place to be everything we could have wanted. It was clean and well kept and had everything we needed. Susan was available and friendly whenever we had (minor!) issues, and we couldn't recommend the place more highly.

Kids Spring Break.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at North Coast Village many times, but this was the best condo we have had to date, the parking place being so close is perfect, and everything was just how the pictures look.

Don't Waste Your Time!

  • 1 of 5

There was a spider and centipede crawling around as soon as we entered the condo. Cobwebs were visible under the cabinets in the kitchen, the hallways smelled of mold and the complex looked like a flashback from the 1970's. Inside the actual condo it did look like the condo pictures but it was so cold outside since we were there in February. About 40 degrees and cold inside as well with only small space heaters they gave us to warm up and a fireplace. We looked in the bedroom drawers and there were half eaten candy bars left in them, even though they charge for a cleaning fee. We felt so uncomfortable that I called Susan immediately and she stated that she would refund us all funds except for 1 night, even though we were there for only 15-20 minutes. We left the property immediately. Susan acted surprised. We were on the phone with her the entire time. Save yourself the aggravation!!! We had to find somewhere else to check into at the last minute after traveling for hours and being exhausted. Also, I did not receive the refund back until a month later! Worst experience ever!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the many honest and sincere reviews we receive, because they let us know when we are doing something right, and when changes are needed. Unfortunately, an occasional review gets posted for malicious or vindictive purposes, or as justification for an undeserved refund. We have one review, posted by Melissa H, that falls into the latter category. Melissa H called at 9:30 p.m. when she arrived for check-in, sounding angry after a long trip and complaining about the cold. She called again at 9:52 p.m., as she walked into our condo for the first time, again complained about the cold, and asked where the heat was. I told her about the in-wall electric heat, the fireplace with remote control thermostat and 4 space heaters. Six minutes later at 9:58 p.m., she called for a 3rd time, asked for a refund, and said they were leaving. I asked why she was leaving. Melissa H said the condo was still chilly, and claimed they had seen ants. I didn't buy the ant story (later the ants turned into spiders and centipedes) and in fact, additional justifications were not necessary - I want guests to be happy, so I would have refunded without the embellishments. This condo has had many winter and summer guests since 2013, and we have never had a complaint about inadequate heating, and have never seen bugs of any kind either before or after this rental. Melissa H booked with VRBO Online Booking. I called VRBO 48 hrs after she left the condo and requested her refund for the 5 night rental, minus rent for 1 night. This was generous under the circumstances, and she seemed happy with the amount at that time. Due to multiple changes she made to her booking early on in an attempt to by-pass the VRBO booking service and their online booking fee (booked, then canceled, then canceled the cancellation), VRBO was unable to issue her refund in a timely manner. Once it was clear that there would be additional delays if her refund went through VRBO, I mailed Melissa H a check to avoid further delays. Many families come to North Coast Village year after year to spend time at the beach in their favorite condos. Like most owners, we have many repeat guests along with new guests and superb reviews. I hope prospective guests will check out our other reviews - reviews posted by guests who made a serious effort to give helpful feedback and provide accurate descriptions of our condo and of their many experiences and adventures in Oceanside and North Coast Village.
