About the property

Beautiful family sized home just 6 blocks from the beach

Completely charming and beach close! Perfect for a getaway or family reunion at the beach. Classic, yet like new, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath West Oceanside home provides the perfect relaxing environment. Situated on a well sized corner lot a mere 6 blocks to the beach, with ocean views from the wrap around deck, this beach city classic is the perfect place to enjoy beach living. Designer accents and appointments throughout this spacious home have restored and enhanced the vintage feeling of post WW2 Oceanside with style and care. Featuring over 1300 square feet, a California room, entertaining deck, and off-street parking, your "home away from home" is the genuine article!. Just a stroll to the beach, the downtown restaurants and clubs, or to the train station, where a commuter ride brings you to San Diego, Orange County, or Los Angeles. Additional features include a washer and dryer, large screen TV, beach toys, full designer kitchen and bathrooms, restored original wood flooring, cast iron clawfoot tub and way too much more to list!

About Carl Moeller

My wife and I love Oceanside. We purchased this home and chose to make it available as a vacation destination because it is so cute. The home has four bedrooms, and three full baths and it's only six blocks from the beach. We love the laid back California vibe of this town, all of the new restaurants, and how you can walk almost anywhere in the town.

Carl Moeller purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Carl Moeller chose Townsite

We chose this property because we love how it is nestled in the highly desirable Seaside neighborhood and yet it is a quick ten minute walk to the beach. It's the ideal home for a family reunion, a retreat, a get away for your girlfriends, or just a place for you and your family and friends to relax.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with this home because it has vintage charm with all of modern amenities in the kitchen and three fully remodeled bathrooms. The deck is awesome because it wraps around the house and provides a perfect place to relax at the end of the day, while you enjoy the ocean breeze. The home has a large family room and kitchen where everyone can gather, and a dutch door to bring the ocean breeze inside. No expense has been spared on the furnishings: Ethan Allen, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware. You will find a kitchen that has Chantal cookware and plenty of dishes and pots and pans. You will find patio furniture, a grill, and even Boogie Boards if you want to body surf. The kitchen has a stainless fridge, micro, and dishwasher and plenty of quartz countertop space. Your group will find that you can all be together but then you can retreat to the various rooms and still have privacy. There is also a breezeway off of the kitchen if you want to relax and unwind in a covered area. Wi-Fi, Internet, and a big screen tv are also provided for your enjoyment. And, if anything is missing, just let us know! We want to help you to create wonderful memories so that you will tell your friends and come back and enjoy your vacation again and again!

The house is located only 5 minutes from the freeway and a 5-10 minute walk to the Amtrak train station. You can hop on a train and go to a Padres game, or Old Town San Diego for some Mexican food, or take the train north to Orange County and go up to San Clemente or Irvine for shopping. Kids will enjoy the proximity to the San Diego Zoo, Legoland, and of course, the beach. Location, location, location. We hope you love this house as much as we do!

Great spot for a family beach getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We thought the location of this home was perfect for us. A nice walk straight down the street to the beach, where there was a playground, bathrooms, and a beautiful beach. Our family included 3 adult couples and 3 toddlers. We were all comfortable in the various beds (trundle, day bed, and pack and play for the kids) It was nice that there was a "pack and play" available at the house for us to use. My only suggestion would be blinds on the upper windows in the laundry room where the trundle bed was located. We would like to come again another time!

lovely home in a lovely seaside resort. We all loved Oceanside. The house is cosy and well equip for everything you should need on a holiday. There were 10 of us staying at the beach cottage and there was room for everyone to relax. The fans were fantastic as the weather was delightfully hot! I am sure we will be back! Great memories! x

This home was perfect for our family! The price can't be beat with 4 BD 3 BA!! And cleaning fee was way less expensive then others!! The decor was really nice in every room! Beds were soo comfy! Lots of Windows on west side of home so the breeze from beach was awesome! Also Great that it's walking distance to shops and restaurants.. No ocean view, but honestly I was ok with it because we loved it here so much it didn't matter.. We were at the beach everyday anyway. We will be back! Thank you Carl for sharing your home with us!

Spring break trip to visit Legoland and San Diego Zoo Safari Park

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this adorable home with two families for three nights. The house is located close to the freeway and downtown Oceanside with many restaurants and supermarkets nearby. The parking was very convenient (we parked in the driveway) and the information provided to enter the house was very simple and accurate. The house is very clean. The kitchen is extremely spacious with a lot of counter space. We only used two of the bedrooms (the two bedrooms with their own bathrooms). The bedrooms and bathrooms were also clean and nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable. We had a great experience and couldn't have asked for a more comfortable, spacious, clean and easily accessible home away from away.

The location was also perfect for the two parks that we visited (Legoland was about a 15 min drive and the Safari Park around 35-40 min).
