About Kristi Benedetto

We live in North Park near downtown San Diego and wanted to have a little beach condo to escape to on the weekends.

Kristi Benedetto purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kristi Benedetto chose South Oceanside

It was love at first sight. South Oceanside is an underrated gem of San Diego county. Super laid back and quiet, the beach here is empty most of the year. The waves can get quite good out front yet remain uncrowded compared to the rest of San Diego. We loved being near Cassidy Street where there are a number of good restaurants. This part of Oceanside definitely has a more upscale feel. We loved that this is a small complex, the pool area is typically empty. You just can't beat this location for the price!

Guestbook comments from the owner

After a long flight from Holland with a long delay and without any suitcases we arrived on January 5th in Oceanside. We arrived in the "winter" that was no winter! Two months, lots of sun, high temperatures and the beautiful beach in front of our door! We really enjoyed the condo. It's very comfortable, homey and has everything you need - even for a long stay. The owners are very helpful, friendly and always available. We are very happy that we chose your condo.

We leave with beautiful memories about the swimming pool, the beach, running to the pier, the dolphins in the ocean, beautiful sunsets, and with the hope that we will be back one day!

Perfect condo in Oceanside

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a great location in Oceanside. It was only a minute or two walk to the beach. The condo was spacious and clean. There were multiple great restaurants close by as well. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Oceanside.

Great Place in a Great Area

  • 5 of 5

We came to Southern California for a few weeks, and were not disappointed. Extremely friendly neighbors and Californians, along with great weather in one of the nicest areas we have vacationed made this one of our favourite trips. Would recommend this place, very nice condo. Only tiny issue we had was with the occasional distant train, but by the end we were getting used to it. We have a three year old daughter who enjoyed the condo as much as we did; we swam in the pool every day, and hit the beach which was 3 minutes away, regularly. There are seemingly endless things to do in Carlsbad/San Diego/Oceanside, I think we only scratched the surface. LegoLand, San Diego Zoo, restaurants, fresh seafood and the OceanSide harbor and farmers markets kept us happily enjoying our time. Thanks for letting us all stay!

Nearest Beach
Cassidy St.
Car: not necessary

South Oceanside is one of the last laid back, authentic Southern California beach communities. Surf and beach culture oozes out of the people here. Park your car and move around all week on foot or on your beach cruiser bicycle. If you ever get tired of the beach or the pool (is that possible?) there are countless entertainment options nearby. Downtown Carlsbad and Downtown Oceanside are just 2 miles away, both with great dining and shopping options.

San Luis Rey bike Trail - 2.3 miles away

The Carlsbad Outlet malls = 5 miles away

Legoland = 5.5 miles away
