About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath penthouse beach condo with panoramic ocean & pier views.

Starfish Villa ~ D304 at North Coast Village

Look straight down the beach to the Oceanside Pier and beyond from the moment you enter this Penthouse condo! These views are to-die-for. Breathtaking ocean, sand, and pier views all the way to La Jolla! Situated in the ocean-close D building, this south facing condo was totally refurnished in 2014 with soothing ocean colors, gorgeous area rug, sculptured carpeting, a Lazy-Boy sleeper sofa, recliner, 2 comfortable chairs with ottomans, and 2 view balconies. In 2016 the kitchen and bathrooms were remodeled with custom cabinets, gorgeous slab granite, stone back splash, and wood-look porcelain tile floors.

The master retreat occupies the entire upper level, looking out to an expansive ocean-view balcony. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves in the Stearns & Foster pillow-top bed with luxurious Ralph Lauren bedding. The second bedroom also has Ralph Lauren bedding with 2 full size pillow-top beds. Fully equipped kitchen, 3 televisions and DVD players, free wireless internet.

This stunning condo is only steps from the sand - no roads to cross! Enjoy gorgeous, lush grounds with waterfalls, streams, Koi ponds, Olympic-size pool, spa, BBQ's, putting green, exercise area, saunas, billiards, and ping pong. In the evening, the Village is magical with gorgeous colored lighting.

Located in northern San Diego County, five minutes off I-5, right next to the Oceanside Harbor (featuring many unique shops and excellent restaurants) and a short walk to Oceanside Pier. Swim, surf, walk the longest stretch of sandy beach in Southern California, kayak, jet ski, boat, paddle boats, fish, shop, all just steps from your condo.

As you walk through the staffed secure gate to North Coast Village, you're transported to a tropical oasis reminiscent of the Costa Rican Rain Forest. Running streams, waterfalls, lush foliage, and Koi meander through the spacious grounds of this resort-like beachfront condominium complex located in Oceanside, California, between the Harbor and the Pier.

You will notice the crystal clear heated pool and spa, gleaming barbecues, convenient picnic tables, sand rinsing stations to remove the lingering beach. If you need a break from sun and surf, you might enjoy a game of pool, a jog on a treadmill in the exercise room, a little ping pong, or a sauna. Feeding our giant Koi is a simple pleasure not to be missed during your Oceanside visit. There is also a putting green and foosball.

When you venture all the way through the back gates, you find yourself on one of North San Diego County’s finest beaches: broad and flat, with fire rings, volleyball, and great surf breaks - right out back! Be sure to stake out a fire ring (to the left) for a unique evening beach fire at least one night while you are in Oceanside.

To the north, you can walk or bike to Oceanside’s busy little harbor for a bite to eat or some boating, and to the south, you can venture down the strand to southern California’s longest pier for some fishing (no license needed) or casual dining at Ruby's. North Coast Village is close enough to walk to everything near the beach, so your car can stay in its secure underground parking spot - especially useful when beach parking becomes a premium in the summer.

The Mainstreet Oceanside Farmer's Market is a delightful experience near the Pier which takes place every Thursday from 9-1, and and the Sunset Market Thursday evenings from 5-9.

Within a short drive, visit Disneyland & California Adventure, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios, Magic Mountain, Balboa Island, La Jolla, Mission San Juan Capistrano, Mission Luis Rey, Queen Mary, San Diego State Parks, San Diego Wild Animal Park, Legoland, Sea World, The Flower Fields of Carlsbad, Temecula Wine Country, San Diego Zoo, Del Mar Racetrack, Coronado Island, Oceanside Harbor, Birch Aquarium at Scripp's Institute of Oceanography, and Palomar Observatory.

Feels Like Home

  • 4 of 5

The Starfish Villa D304 at North Coast Villiage was an awesome condo for the week we visited. It was well equipped with everything we needed and was furnished beautifully. We were able to see dolphins from the balconies twice during our stay. The only thing I would have really like to have, that wasn't provided in the condo, were binoculars to see the dolphins more closely, but otherwise no complaints. The condo complex was beautiful. Fully equipped with laundry mats, heated swimming pool, hot tub, and BBQ area. They also had a pond around the HOA office filled with the biggest most beautiful koi fish I have ever seen. There is a coin operated feeder there as well, no wonder they are so big...LOL. The only thing we didn't like about the complex is the parking is all underground so we couldn't bring out bigger vehicle, we drove from a Idaho, because it is limited to a 6 foot clearance. The weather wasn't great the week we were there, so that limited beach time, but we made the best of it by visiting the San Diego Zoo and Six Flags Magic Mountain on a few of the days. We ate at the Oceanside Broiler and loved it. Shopping in Carlsbad, the neighboring town, was a fun activity as well. I would recommend this condo to anyone that wishes to stay on the coast and as a great middle ground between Los Angles and San Diego. As far as Oceanside the town, not too impressed. I didn't feel comfortable walking around some areas at night alone. Carlsbad felt better for tourists. If I could pick up the condo and complex and move it to Carlsbad I totally would.

just as advertised - loved the decor

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place and hope to visit again. This was the perfect condo for the 4 of us. So much room and such a view. Everything we could want. It felt like home after a long day sightseeing. Loved the setting. Wished we would have gotten more info when we checked in - but it was after hours so no one told us how to get stuff for the game room. Also glad we stayed the week we did. They started dredging 4 days into our stay. It would have been awful to be there through all of that. It wrecked the beach and we had to keep closing the sliding doors because of the smell. Thankfully we were centrally located to go to San Diego, Carlsbad, and other nearby towns. I would have like to stay at the beach a little more. Nice touch with a bunny and bubbly. Wished there was a process to know how to leave food (pop, crackers, etc) for the next group or the owners. Thanks for the memories.

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you enjoyed Starfish Villa. We appreciate your input very much. We apologize for the dredging, which is an annual occurrence that replaces the sand on our beautiful beaches. We do not know an exact date when this will take place. Unfortunately, we can't provide any food items due to liability reasons. We hope to see you again soon! The Make My Vacation Team

Accommodations exceeded my expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nicely appointed condo rental. It was very clean and modern with large cable TV selection and Internet. The condo and the whole complex was incredibly well maintained. The views of the ocean were just as the pictures had shown. Kitchen amenities seem new, bedding was very comfortable, kitchen with granite counter tops, bathrooms with all granite vanities and modern tiled shower areas. Many dining options and a few popular attractions within walking distance. My only negative was the office staff. The good news is I did not need to interact with them often. Asked where I could print my boarding pass and the lackadaisical response was "the library" with a follow-up comment "good luck with that". When checking out, the staff person walked out of the office with no greeting, assumed I was checking out, gestured at a cup that had a pen in it. No smile, and no eye contact at all. My mind-reading capabilities told me I was to drop the key in the cup. I asked if I needed to do anything else for check-out and the response was "nope". No greeting of "good morning" no inquiry as to "how was your stay". I've been in the hospitality business my whole career. The simple basics of customer service were not even attempted. It was not that wonderful last impression a guest hopes for. That being said, it was a great property and condo. So I'll overlook my minor incidental negative interaction with the office staff and give this rental a 5 star rating.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your input. We appreciate it very much, an are glad you enjoyed staying in Starfish Villa. We deeply apologize for the unkind treatment you received. The HOA office provides a check-in service for our guests, but is not part of our Make My Vacation staff. In the future, you might want to just drop your keys in the slot outside the office. :) The Make My Vacation Team
