Temperatures every year vary only by fifteen degrees, so locals understand that you do not need to look outside to check the weather. With warm weather and clear skies year-round, the beach can be enjoyed to its fullest Surf Fishing is a popular activity in Oceanside, which has a 1,942 foot long wooden pier perfect for fishing and seeing the sights. Visitors to Oceanside on beach vacations often also visit LEGOLAND, a short drive away, or take day trips down to San Diego. Oceanside is a quiet harbor town, and a great destination for people seeking a laid-back vacation.

Visitors to Oceanside, California, looking to soak up a little history on their beach vacations should consider visiting the Mission San Luis Rey de Francia. The largest of California's historic missions, San Luis Rey de Francia was one of the first outposts the Spanish built in California, and features beautiful old spanish-style architecture and gardens.

A large, roomy, well appointed home. More than enough space for our family of six. The roof top hot tub was a hit. Would highly recommend for a large family.

Very nice property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time my wife and I have rented a home for a family vacation so I really have nothing to compare our experience to but I can say it's a very nice home located in a great location. A short walk to just about everything you need including grocery, restaurant and the beach. I would like to thank the owners of this home so much for the opportunity to rent their home.

Photos provided were very representative of the property & its features. Our grandchildren loved it. Close to the beach and other businesses & restaurants in the area. The back alley, where you enter the garage, is adjacent to a 24 hour gas station on the PCH/Rte. 101. Security at the property was great.

Fantastic vacation home- a must stay!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property- so comfortable, you feel right at home! The house is so beautiful and the garden so lush! So much charm and the artwork is fantastic! Plenty of space for families, we loved the different levels of the house for privacy and comfort for all of us to enjoy. Tons of space with three huge bedrooms, three baths, three living rooms and a very well stocked state-of-the art kitchen with all the upgrades! The roof top hot tub was a huge hit, with an Ocean View and seating for us, the kids fully enjoyed in the evenings while we cooked dinner. We loved the accommodations of the hot tub, bikes, boogie boards, cart, coolers, etc- and off to the beach you walk! We ate out a ton with the town being so trendy and fun.. amazing food for everyone to enjoy. Quick walk to beach, shops, coffee shops, groceries, brew pubs, restaurants. Literally, you are in the heart of the town.

Can't wait to return!

Like a 5 star hotel

  • 5 of 5

What a gift this place was for our family vacation. We had high expectations of this home from the pictures and description online and were still amazed and delighted. Very spacious with tons of room to get away from each other. Loved reading on the roof while my daughter enjoyed the hot tub, amazing views. The master suite was so relaxing, we are missing the comfortable king bed already. Just a short walk or bike ride to a beautiful beach. Also, don't miss out on the Thursday farmer's market in the morning and a sunset market in the evening. Just 3 blocks away.

The management company checked in with us multiple times and was very helpful.

My kids can't wait to go back and neither can I.

I'm coming back!

  • 5 of 5

I loved it here and I'm really looking forward to my next visit. Situated just a couple blocks from the beach and close, but not too close, to tasty restaurants and bars made this location really ideal for us. We could easily get around and see the sights, but had plenty of privacy to get some much needed relaxation in. We always either walked or biked around town (beach cruisers provided), and made an easy bike trip into the neighboring town of Carlsbad.

The home itself has absolutely everything you would ever need with beautiful finishes throughout: large living areas with a HUGE updated kitchen plus dining, spacious office, three large bedrooms on one floor, and my favorite part - the roof-top lanai with hot tub! The home is huge and very comfortable/inviting. I was there with friend's, but I'm sure it would be a great place for families as well. With an office and internet available you could get work done while away, but I chose to avoid it myself.

I'm a big fan and have already started planning my next trip back this upcoming spring! Oceanside has charmed me. It's very easy going with a small city vibe, but vibrant and fun with tons to do. Go there!
