PLEASE NOTE: While we go every effort to provide a wonderful vacation, this is a house/vacation rental, not a hotel. Please do not expect concierge service, or be flabbergasted if there are minor problems. There are literally hundreds of items to attend to in a full house of this size and things can break or housekeepers may miss a spot here or there, etc. We aim for a perfect place ( and, overwhelmingly, our reviews endorse this), however, sometimes, things go awry. Please be understanding and patient. Whenever possible, we will try to correct the situation if notified in a timely and patient manner. We will not be be bullied with threats of negative reviews or those looking for an unjustified "discount". Travelers who fall into this category will, in turn, receive a negative review and our experience will be shared with the 200+ owner's who rent in this complex to be aware of unscrupulous, overly-demanding or unreasonable guests. We work hard for our reviews and this is a family run business and we will protect it.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have owned and managed many rental units in Southern California including 4 in North Coast Village! Villa Mia, named after my eldest daughter, is one of our favorites! We also own a one bedroom (vrbo.com/361326 ) and two other 2 bed/2 bath units, one is a 2 level unit including a penthouse level master suite(vrbo.com/485686 ) and just added (vrbo.com/744003 ) to our list our great ocean view units! Our family lives about an hour from Oceanside in a suburb of Los Angeles. TAKE THE TIME TO READ OUR REVIEWS. THEY ARE MOSTLY 5 AND 4 STARS (OUT OF 5 STARS)! OUR GUESTS LOVE OUR UNITS AND IT SHOWS IN THEIR COMMENTS. WE OWN AND OPERATE OUR OWN UNITS. WE DO NOT USE A MANAGEMENT COMPANY WITH 30 OR 40 OTHER UNITS TO DEAL WITH. WE OPERATE OUR OWN UNITS AS A FAMILY ENTERPRISE.

Why the Owner Chose Townsite, Oceanside, CA, USA:
You cant get much closer to the beach! If you like to people watch (but not be too close-as with the ground floor units), then this is your condo. The Strand is Oceanside's equivalent of a boardwalk that accommodates both pedestrian and vehicular (one-way only) traffic. In the summer it can be packed with people walking, cruising in their cars or on 4-person surrey-top rental bikes or it can be relatively empty as the sun goes down and the beach crowds go home. In the off-season it is traveled much less frequently, mostly by the occasional vehicular tourist and the locals who live along the Strand. MAINLY, THOUGH, THE VIEWS OF THE BEACH AND THE PIER ARE UNPARALLELED!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
One of the best beach views available in the entire NCV complex - one of only 4 units out of 550 in the complex that has 2nd story views of the beach and that is located on the world famous Oceanside Strand!
