North Coast Village is located between the Oceanside Harbor and the Oceanside Pier, and is a favorite destination for both couples and families from around the world. The complex consists of nine three-story buildings surrounded by 2-story cottages, on several acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. You are just steps from the sand; there are no roads to cross-this is an OCEANFRONT COMPLEX! Swim in the large heated pool (one of two pools and spas), or enjoy a romantic walk on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in Southern California.

Experience all North Coast Village has to offer: BBQ's, lushly landscaped gardens with waterfalls and streams, exercise rooms, saunas, putting green, and 24-hr guarded, gated security. Venture outside North Coast Village to the Oceanside Harbor with the yacht marina, quaint shops, and outstanding restaurants...all within walking distance. Rent a boat or jet ski, enjoy great fishing or spend time whale and dolphin watching. The coastline offers wonderful choices for the active or less active visitors with private access to the beach.

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

Amtrack Train Station is only 1 mile from the condo and you can enjoy an easy ride south to San Diego or north to Los Angeles along the beautiful coastline.

Within a short drive, enjoy Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios, LEGOLAND, Wild Animal Park, SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo, La Jolla, Del Mar Race Track, Sea Port Village, Catalina Island, Balboa Island, Hollywood, and Rodeo Drive.

About Joan Gustin

We are a family of 3 that discovered Oceanside and North Coast Village by accident a few years ago. We loved the quiet, quaint beach and the Hawaiian feel of North Coast Village so much, that this year, we decided to purchase our own condo. We hope that you enjoy it here as much as we do!

Joan Gustin purchased this condo in 2016

Why Joan Gustin chose Townsite

North Coast Village really has something for everyone. The complex is fantastic - location, amenities, safety - it has it all! We love how close it is to so many theme parks, zoos and, of course, the beach. I think it's the perfect place for everyone, whether you are a retiree, couple or family. So close to San Diego without the hustle and bustle of a big city!

What makes this condo unique

Being from Orange County originally, I grew-up visiting all of the busy overcrowded beaches of Orange, LA and San Diego Counties. As I returned as an adult, It was so refreshing to find Oceanside and North Coast Village, where you could enjoy all of the benefits of a small town beach, while still being able to take advantage of great restaurants, shopping and local attractions

Great stay, again!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Joan and Kurt's condo for the 2nd time for 2 weeks and again, we had a great stay. The condo is well equipped and they did some extra upgrades which worked great, like an extra door from the bedroom to the hall/bathroom.

The condo has been upgraded 1.5 year ago when they purchased it and it is nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable.

Compared to other units, this one is great and a big bonus compared to the others, is the large patio outside. This condo has a great outdoor space compared to the other condo's that have a small balcony.

In case you are wondering, in this condo you will have no issues with noise from the trains at all.

Oceanside stay in lovely condo with a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the "Sea la Vie" condo. It was a beautiful condo, very clean and well kept. The condo was well supplied and quite convenient to the many restaurants and sights in Oceanside. This was a first-time experience for us and we were delighted.

Almost perfect

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, relaxing and even better than a hotel: more room, great balcony with view and wonderful landlords. What was missing? A good can opener! But, then, that is an excuse to go out for dinner!

A Great Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find his place is! My husband and I stayed here for a week while visiting family for the holidays. We were very pleased to find a few bottles of water in the fridge, tissues, paper towels, soap, all of the little essentials you need in a home. The condo is very pleasant, comfortable, and nicely decorated. We found the bed very comfortable. The condo is on the 1st floor, is convenient to the parking space in the garage, and the stairwell. This condo has a view of the beautiful gardens. There are pathways that take you through the gardens, by streams, waterfalls, and a large fish pond. The pool and hot tub, are a nice option to have. The complex is next to The Strand, beach, marina, and walking distance to restaurants and coffee shops. The owners were great to deal with when we had an issue with the fireplace not lighting. I would want to stay here on future visits with the family!

This condo was amazing! The vibe is very relaxing, it's bright, super well stocked, everything to clean up a bit during your stay is there if you need...

Also the full size terrace is a big plus, you can spread more and have direct access to a staircase to go down on the beautiful path leading to the pool and beach...Our little 18months baby loved the space of the condo and also the grounds of the complex! There's a baby eating chair, little bed, lot's of toys, umbrella etc!

Very important to us (asthmatic kid!) : no carpets, the floor are a nice wood imitation, easy to clean if the little one dropped something ;0)

Bed was big and comfortable , and even with the bed size, plenty of space to put our kid's bed in the room.

It was immaculately clean when we arrived.

Super easy to communication with the owner Joan before and during the stay.

Well we definitly hope to be back there! Thanks Joan!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Quiet location away from the pool noise an easy access to the beach. The pool was delightful for the early morning swim. The beautiful gardens surrounding the pathways to and from the unit are well maintained.

The kitchen was well stocked any we could cook our favorite meals without any difficulty. The pleasant surprise was the spice rack!

The layout of the unit was well designed and comfortable.

Owners are very responsive and helpful.

Great spot for either families or couples.
