About Debbie Rumsey

John is a native San Diegan and has spent the majority of his life in North County. Debbie grew up in Phoenix and has been fortunate call North County home for the past 30+ yrs. We have raised 2 children here and absolutely love where we live and look forward to sharing our knowledge of the area with anyone needing information or suggestions. We enjoy going to the beach whenever possible, hiking, and skiing in the local mountains during the winter.

Debbie Rumsey purchased this house in 2001

Why Debbie Rumsey chose South Oceanside

When we saw this house for sale we immediately knew we had to own it. We absolutely loved it and used it as a long term rental for many years. The architecture is unique and the location is superb so we decided we wanted to share this love for our home with visitors!

What makes this house unique

One of the things we loved about this home, besides its architectural lines, was the fact that the home is on one street and the detached garage is located on the next street over so the house is accessible from 2 different streets and has plenty of parking.

Great house with all amenities and fast access to the highway.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Oceanside, and really enjoyed the house, the amenities and the location!

First, Debbie, our host was very attentive and helpful and very kind to us.

We loved the house. It was very clean, and we very quickly created routines as if this was our own house, and that is actually the best recommendation that you can give. The kitchen had all the stuff that you could even imagine using, and the washer and dryer next to the kitchen were simply perfect. Furthermore, the garage, which can be reached by the backside of the house, was good and spacious.

The location of the house was also perfect. We made a lot of trips north- and southbound and then it is very convenient with the highway only .3 miles from the house.

And finally, some suggestions; we visited Don’s country kitchen a couple of times. A great experience with good breakfast and a very sweet staff.

Further, if you enjoy walking take a trip to Carlsbad, in fact that is closer than to the center of Oceanside. Stunning views and good restaurants.

Debbie left a full book of good suggestion for things to do and places to see.

We will come back if we are in that neighborhood again.

Amazing property and stay...and great suppprt from start to finish by Debbie!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL visit...the property is beautiful, had all supplies we could have wanted, and is close to everything! We loved having coffee and a glass of wine in the back yard...hammocks were super comfy...and the bikes, cooler and beach towels came in very handy! So cool to walk to get coffee, breakfast, dinner, drinks...and to be at the pier in Oceanside or in San Diego with just a short drive. And my teenage son really appreciated the tv/WiFi access to be able to watch the World Cup soccer matches and play a few video games at night..and we all enjoyed watching movies! Thanks Debbie for a great stay...we’ll definitely be back!!

Wonderful Stay in Oceanside, CA

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with using VRBO, and it was an awesome. This home was wonderful, and the homeowners made us feel right at home. It was located in a quiet neighborhood, and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation, and make us feel at home. The beach cruiser bicycles, boogie boards, chairs, and accessories for the beach were a definite plus. Riding the bicycles from the house on the bike trails to the beach was awesome. We rate this stay as Excellent and would highly recommend it. Thank you to the Rumsey's for making our stay a memorable one.

Quaint Realxing Homebase

  • 5 of 5

Everything listed and pictured on this home is exactly true. Very relaxing spot for those in between events if you are on vacation. It has everything you need regardless if it is a short or extended stay. Our 4 year old loved the backyard he didn’t want to go home, we were there for his 5th bday. Legoland and the beach are conveniently located and there are many options for eating in the thriving South O or Carlsbad Village. Highly recommend this place if you are looking for a relaxing space with original hardwood floors that creak! You will not be disappointed book it!
