About the Property
Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
We finished our remodel! Our photographer just took these interior shots in May 2016. Our remodeling included removing all of the flooring - all the popcorn on the ceiling - all the window coverings and all of the bathroom from the studs up. All new LOW E high efficiency vinyl windows and doors were installed throughout. Our goal was to modernize our condo which was built in the late 70's yet retain the charm of our beach community. We replaced all of the tiled counters both kitchen and bathroom throughout the condo with gorgeous Santa Cecelia Granite (warm beige, gold with cherry flecks). We smoothed the ceiling - repainted throughout in warm neutral colors - replaced all the ceiling fans with new ones (bedroom and living area)- and all the ceiling light fixtures as well. - our vanity in the bathroom is now a medium cherry wood with centered bowl which really shows off the new Granite countertop. There is now a new tub, toilet, walls, surrounds, mirrors - everything. We lengthened the hallway between the vanity area and bedroom by 18 inches and added a door to the bedroom - removing the door to the main hallway (which no one ever used). The bedroom now is completely private with a nice walk in closet for storage. We replaced all the bedroom furniture opting for the darker richer colors of cherry hardwood. Added -flat screen wall mounted tv and new dvd players in living room and bedroom. There is some new artwork to top it off. Plus, a very nice remote controlled electric fireplace in our master suite. Our master is now a suite retreat -with a high end Cal King bed and if needed, a twin chair bed that will fit an adult as well as a child. It's a great place to relax.
Our kitchen has new custom granite counters - new appliances, steel sink, counters and rebuilt drawers in our vintage original medium oak lacquered cabinets which we are quite fond of. The solid oak cabinets are simply impossible to find these days of veneers and plasticized wood so we opted to rebuild the shelving where needed adding pulls to keep finger prints to a minimum.
Our flooring is now 75% grade 6 imported ceramic tile with a very high rating for the abrasive sands of beach living. The color complements our new granite counters beautifully. The bedroom is our only carpeted space.
Tropical grounds and ocean breezes await your arrival! Fern grottoes, waterfalls, fountains, Koi ponds, wooden bridges and strolling paths make North Coast Village a peaceful retreat. Add heated pools, romantic jacuzzi pools, a fully equipped gym with two saunas, game room with billiards, ping pong tables and we're just getting started on the amenities. Our complex is right on the beach - no roads to cross to get to the water. We're just across the San Luis Rey River from our quaint and active Oceanside Harbor. Our E building is arguably the most sought after in the complex ..sales comps prove that as well. Our unit is South facing and right over the putting green ..opposite the little decorative row boat for those familiar with our complex. No noise from roads, no lights of cars passing, no train noise...just peace-quiet and ocean waves.
Stroll down to the seawall where you can perch on the wall at sunset and sip a glass of champagne as you watch the sun slide into the sea...or if you prefer, capture it all from the privacy of your own deck. At night you can watch the boats sail into the harbor with their lights dancing on the water.
Drive into a protected gated underground parking garage - unload and take the elevator up to the first residential floor. It's easy access to our condo from our assigned parking space.
If you are traveling with friends - extended family or planning a family reunion, wedding or special event let us know .. we can help! We have 3 beautiful condos at North Coast Village and 2 other gorgeous beach front condos nearby. FOR QUICK access to our other listings SCROLL down on this page to just ABOVE THE PHOTOS section and look for the SINGLE line that says SEE ALL MY RENTALS - you can jump back and forth between all of our listings. Check the calendars at our other properties to see if the dates you want are available. The calendar on listing 7523 is only for listing 7523 and we may have space in one of our other units. We offer tastefully appointed condos with everything you need to be comfortable, and right at home. A good nights sleep is so important and E104 has a Cal King Bed in the Master Bedroom. A twin chair bed is also in the master bedroom -
We provide sleeping for 4 people in beds that are off the floor. A double convertible couch bed in the Living room from IKEA offers sleeping for up to 2 smallish persons. The dimensions are for a 'full' mattress which is about 48-52" width. The other Chair Bed in the bedroom offers sleeping for one person - (twin) it is a full length twin. It's a nice option for those children who need to be close to mom and dad. We also have available Full Twin Futon mats, And Pack N Play style Portable Crib for infant up to 30 lbs. Max occupancy is still 4 persons regardless of how you choose to use our sleeping options.
Our condo is electronically equipped with amenities including High Speed Uverse (Aug 2015) WIFI with 18mps download speeds which is literally 3x faster than my prior pro DSL service. Its dedicated to our unit only, so it is safe, reliable and fast. New 2015 HD Flat Screens in both rooms . HD cox cable service, DVD components for watching yours or our videos.
Our rental include linens, bedding, towels, beach chairs, mats, cooler, umbrellas, beach towels, and sand toys for toddlers, plus a selection of popular games, books and puzzles.
In 2008 we had a custom dining counter built into the balcony and added tall captains chairs or bar stools so you can now sit outside up high and enjoy a meal, cocktail or coffee while you watch the waves rolling in - the surfers - the harbor ships.
Coin operated Laundry facilities featuring top of the line 'Neptune' machines are in our building. There is one car designated parking for each unit in a gated and underground parking garage close to each unit. Extra parking is available in guest spots - which have specific rules for use .. so ask us about that too if you have more than one overnight vehicle. Max vehicle height is 6'4" and maximum length is 21' per HOA regulations. Note! Effective 2016 there is no bike storage for non resident occupants (short term renters).
Our Maximum occupancy in a 1bdrm condo is 4 persons and 6 persons for our 2bdrm unit this includes infants. No Smoking and No Pets -Strictly Enforced at all times! We have a 3 day minimum off season, and generally ask for 7 nights minimum during peak seasons or holidays. Generally we go Sat to Sat during the peak season because that's how the calendar starts to fill up .. but don't hesitate to ask for what you want .. we may be able to work it out. The earlier you book .. the better the selection of dates that will be available. Winter we prefer seasonal rentals.
Let's talk about cleaning - many of our guests ask us about how clean our unit is .. .. tile is professionally steamed every couple of years and grout is repaired and resealed direcly afterwards. We are at the beach - so it is WET here .. We now use a professional housekeeping company. They transport our linens to a professional laundry service nearby - then return them with the next change out. Linens and towels are inventoried before and after every rental. We have a thorough checklist, and a separate manager walks through after it is cleaned. Their cleaning includes restocking our basic supplies - replacing spent light bulbs, cleaning the slider door glassand tracks after every rental. They provide supervision of repairs with our own contractor, hired professionals or our onsite maintenance team. They provide - window cleaning - and property inspections as often as needed to keep our unit in great shape. If you are missing something you wanted - or something is not working. Please call us right away - we keep a storeroom on property with spare everything - from coffee makers to ceiling fans and can respond pretty quickly.
We use the Shark steam cleaner system on our tiled surfaces to keep them clean and sanitary between our guests. We use Duvet covers on our comforters. We have pillow protectors on all pillows under the pillow case. We refresh our condo every year to keep them up to date and running well.
We look forward to helping you plan your time in Southern California. We have been renting down here since 1988 and there is something going on all year long that is of interest. As you search through the ads - please keep us bookmarked and don't hesitate to read our reviews or write us a quick question.
Lastly Please be wary of any ads you come across in popular sites like craig's list or facebook which ask you to send money in a wire transfer to Western Union, or cashier's check or money order. Sadly - every week during the summer months we hear about vacationers who thought they were getting a screaming good deal from Craigslist for their family vacation. When they arrive they discover that while the complex is real - the ad they responded to was fraudulent .. stolen .. and not from the real owners at all. If you find a deal that is TOO good - you should cross check with VRBO or even the homeowners association to make sure that the phone contact numbers match up. If it sounds too good to be true - it probably is. Call us - our phone number can easily be confirmed, and we'll leave the light on for ya'
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: Dad's taking the picture - so here are Cindy and our boys - at North Coast Village Oct 16, 2010 for the wedding of our Niece which took place at the seawall - with the cocktail party on the E Deck and reception in the Party Room over the Koi Pond. We started coming down here regularly when our niece was born to be a part of her life and close to my sister and her husband. It carried forward into our buying a unit - then another and another. Before you know it -we had a rental business. It's all in the family now - with a total of 6 beach units between the two families .. four of them right here at North Coast Village. My husband is retired -and I'm getting there .. we have two lovely young boys to raise and just love being able to bring them down to the beach. The weather is spectacular all year long - there is so much to do - and see .. it really is a marvelous place to vacation. I've been flying for 38 years for a major airline - and have stayed in every conceivable type of room. I think I know what is important and what isn't. We try to maintain our units to a very clean - very comfortable and completely equipped status being mindful that our summer guests needs are very different from our winter guests needs. Our reviews tell us we're doing pretty good at that task.
Why the Owner Chose Townsite, Oceanside, CA, USA:
We wanted to be close to family - my sister initially had the only grandkids - Now her kids are grown and ours are little - so the shoe is on the other foot. She does travel up to visit us .. but we just love coming down to the beach to escape the snow in Tahoe where we live. It's the perfec balance - Snow and Surf.. who could ask for anything more?
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We are in love with Legoland at the moment - and have bought annual passes - they are an incredibly good deal - So.. when we come down we go there for 2-3 hours every day to let the kids play and run. We also get a kick out of the Wild Animal Park - a part of the San Diego Zoo.. it is only 10-15 minutes away and again - buying the annual zoo pass is a good deal .. and if you join by way of the zoological society - it is currently tax deductible too - and gets you free entry to both the zoo and the animal park. Last but not least - there is something special to falling asleep with the sound of the waves pounding .. it is soooo soothing. Our climate up North is very dry - when we're down here - our skin just slurps up the moisture and we feel so 'renewed'.
