About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom W/TOP OF LINE KING BED + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

BELOW ARE DIRECT QUOTES FROM OUR CLIENTS, AND WE CAN'T SAY IT ANY BETTER THAN THEY DID!

"Perfect. Exactly as advertised.

The weather wasn't great, but the condo was. Beautiful property and view of the pier and waves. We watched surfers and dolphins from our little deck. This was the most completely furnished condo we have ever stayed in.

Started with welcome basket of treats. All normal toiletries were provided, kitchen had everything we needed, all the beach toys and equipment were there for us to use. Comfortable bed, thick towels and of course the view. Went to sleep each night listening to wave's crash"

Stayed: February 2017

"WOW! WHAT A VIEW OF THE SURF FROM INSIDE THE UNIT! We have been in at least 20 other North Coast Village units and none have had the straight on view from inside the unit. We watched the dolphins frolic in the surf every morning. We walked to the harbor each day to see the seals playing in the harbor waters. We walked along the beach each day and admired the sea shells on the sand. Our grandsons spent hours in the beautiful pool and spa at NCV. We had a wonderful stay. John and JoAnn's Beach Retreat had everything we needed for our visit. Very comfortable king bed too. We look forward to returning there soon, with the very reasonable rates"!

"This was our second time to John's condo. There had been several upgrades since our last visit. Everything was spotless and the new bedding made for a much nicer look! The laundry area, BBQ area and the fitness room were always very clean too. The grounds are well maintained. It is a very secure gated community with your own parking spot. John has supplied a lot of "beach toys"which is great for families. We love having our 'Happy Hour" on the deck with the sun setting over the ocean. We recommend this condo for a relaxing and pleasant stay". Mary Vancouver Island Canada

FEEL FREE TO READ OUR OTHER OVER 50 5 STAR REVIEWS! OUR AIM IS FOR EVERY ONE OF OUR CLIENTS TO LEAVE WITH THESE TYPES OF MEMORIES!!!

BE CAREFUL OF OTHER NCV ADS SAYING AT THE BEACH OR ON THE BEACH. NORTH COAST VILLAGE (NCV) IS BUILT AT OR ON THE BEACH, BUT WITH 550 CONDOS, MOST CONDOS THAT RENT ARE MUCH FARTHER AWAY FROM THE BEACH AND THE POOL/JACUZZI . ARE SOME UP TO A FULL CITY BLOCK FROM THE BEACH. THE FURTHER FROM THE BEACH THE CLOSER THEY ARE TO TRAIN NOISE! DO YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO TRAINS OR THE WAVES BREAKING ON THE WIDE SANDY BEACH?

FROM OUR CONDO ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO GET TO THE BEACH, IS WALK OUT THE DOOR, DOWN THE HALL TO THE ELEVATOR AT ONE END, OR TAKE THE STAIRS AT THE OTHER, OUT TO THE SIDEWALK, OUT THE PRIVACY GATES AND YOU ARE ON OR A VERY FEW STEPS YOU ARE THE BEACH!!

WE SINCERELY BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE THE BEST VIEWS/LOCATION/UPGRADES OF ANY ONE BEDROOM CONDO IN NCV! BETTER YET READ OUR REVIEWS AND WE HAVE THE 5 STAR REVIEWS WHICH AGREE WITH US.

STILL NOT CONVINCED? PLEASE WATCH OUR VIDEO. THE BEACH AND OCEAN PARTS ARE FILMED RIGHT FROM OUR BALCONY AND INSIDE OUR CONDO. THE POOL, JACUZZI, AND KOI POND ARE NOT VISIBLE FROM OUR CONDO, BUT ARE RIGHT DOWN THE SAME ELEVATOR AND EVEN CLOSER THAN THE BEACH!

WE ARE IN THE D BUILDING ON THE SECOND FLOOR RIGHT ON THE CORNER OF THE STRAND & BREAKWATER DR. THIS IS WHAT GIVES US OUR SPECTACULAR UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS! NO BUILDINGS BLOCKING ANY PART OF OUR VIEW OF THE BEACH, OCEAN, OR PIER!

OUR WEEKS BOOK FAST, SO BOOK BEFORE THE TIME YOU WANT

ACT FAST to get THE DATES YOU WANT, before SOMEONE ELSE TAKES IT!!

We do our best to keep our Pricing at or below other one bedroom condos with decent views! Our Views are Spectacular! Our Location is very Convenient, and We Continuously Upgrade the Interior!!! We want every one of our clients to leave wanting nothing more than to return ASAP and telling all of their friends, family and acquaintances about our condo!!!

Sit inside the condo or outside on the balcony and watch and listen to the waves break for miles south and West down the coast and out into the Pacific!!!

We believe that our condo has the best combination of unmatched beach views, convenient location, and continuous updating. We do everything we can to price our condo at or below other one bedroom condos with lesser views, location and updates. We believe our reviews support our belief. Please read them!

"The easiest way to rent our condo is to Click on the Yellow BOOKIT Button and click on your Saturday arrival date and departure dates. This process will not only tell you whether the dates are available and the price including rent, deposit, and taxes, but it will also allow you to book it for those dates with your credit card.

If your arrival date that you want is not available with the BOOKITNOW gold button, you will have to use the Email Owner Button or better yet call or text me at 951 316 9191 to request the dates you want. For two consecutive weeks we discount the second week by $100. We also reduce our rent by at least 4 or more consecutive weeks for potential clients who wish to have our unmatched and memorizing views and convenient location for long term rentals but you will need to call text or email us to get these rates.

We choose our condo for its views and location and are glad to give a break in our price, but we also know that we can easily rent every week of the the year without discounting them at all. Many others who rent by the month do not have our views, location, upgrades, and or pricing combinations so they fail to be able to rent enough time to pay their bills and have to offer long term rentals at really low rates. We offer really great views, location, and upgrades that will rent year round at lower rates than normal for those who want to both save some money and enjoy our views and location. Prices may be raised without notice until booking takes place.

SPECTACULAR UNOBSTRUCTED PIER/BEACH/OCEAN/WHITEWATER VIEWS FROM INSIDE EVERY ROOM. UNMATCHED VIEWS AND LOCATION IN ONE-BEDROOM CONDO RENTALS AT NCV.

JOHN & JoAnn's BEACH RETREAT IS FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO WATCH & LISTEN TO THE WAVES BREAK ALONG MILES OF BEACH 24 HOURS A DAY. YOU WILL BE MESMERIZED BY OUR VIEWS. NOTHING CAN COMPARE WITH THE LUXURY OF STAYING AND PLAYING AT THE BEACH AND NEVER LEAVING SIGHT OR SOUND OF THE WAVES BREAKING ON THE WIDE SANDY BEACH! WE HAVE 1 THE VERY FEW PRIVATE BICYCLE LOCKER ROOMS FOR 4 BIKES AT NCV.

A very short Drive (10 Min) to Carlsbad to shop in its unique village atmosphere or visit Lego-Land. .

Looking for additional adventure? ten to 30 non rush hour minutes to the south you can visit many nearby beach communities including San Diego. Each offers a distinct and different atmosphere and restaurant opportunities. San Diego has its Gas Lamp District for shopping and Jazz, San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Old Town, the Padres and much much more. All are just a short trip south.

45 minutes North is Anaheim with Disneyland, Disney's new California Adventure, and Downtown Disney.

About John Graham

My wife JoAnn & I met when she did an Escrow on a house I was buying. When the house closed escrow, I asked her out and we have now been happily married for more than 20 years. She is the love of my life. We have twin Rhodesian Ridgebacks & a Rescue dog that was supposed to be Rhodesian Ridgeback/Fox Hound Mix. They are wonderful.

John Graham purchased this condo in 2001

Why John Graham chose Oceanside

The Ocanside Beach in front of our condo is one of the top beaches in the United states for Surfing, Swimming, Boogie Boarding, Skim Boarding, Tanning, and Relaxing in the Sun.

We found our condo by mistake. We had gone to Oceanside to look at a different one. Thank goodness for mistakes. We now own what we consider one of two one-bedroom condoz with the best views and location that rent in North Coast Village. If you want to know why just watch our You Tube video.

North Coast Village has everything we look for when we look for a Beach Vacation:

A really nice beach with lifeguards in season,

A really large aesthetically pleasing pool with its brand new remodeled restrooms and waterfall,

A large Jacuzzi,

A gym with machines and weights,

Billiard Tables, Foosball,Putting Green,Trails with waterfalls, streams and koi pond full of the largest koi you have ever seen.

All of this in a gated community with association security patrol, and you will have your own personal parking space.

What makes this condo unique

Besides Spectacular Views/Convenient Location/Continuous Upgrading, we have four private lockers for bicycles. Our favorite activities sitting on the balcony having a sipping a glass of wine watching and listening to the waves break on the wide sandy beach, walking on the beach, and either sitting in the Jacuzzi or laying out next to the beautiful pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"John & JoAnn,



It was everything you said it would be and then some. We loved the view and it just felt like home.



We hope t make it back and will call you again.

Owner's Response: Deb, Thank You for the great review. Your opinion or our condo is what we strive for and want from every one of our clients to have when they leave our prized condo!!! We want our clients to leave wanting to return ASAP, and when they get back home to tell everyone they know how wonderful Oceanside and our condo are! We really are happy that you enjoyed your stay so much!!! We try so hard to let people know the difference between staying at North Coast Village (NCV) which we believe is the best place in Southern California for a Beach Vacation and Staying in a condo like ours with the our spectacular views, location, and upgrades. Our favorite saying is "The only thing better than staying at NCV is staying at NCV with a great view and location"! You said it perfectly! A stay at NCV is wonderful, but a stay with a view is far better especially when you consider our location and all the wonderful positive changes that we have incorporated recently through Pamela who now has really spruced our condo up so nicely!!! JoAnn and I just returned today, and we got a rare chance to really enjoy our condo our selves. We feel renewed and refreshed. It is a great feeling.

Wonderful!

The photo is true to the view we had from the balcony. Getting to the beach was very easy!

On our last morning there, as we were packing up, we took a last look out and we saw dolphins!

A great mini-vacation for our family!

Outstanding stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed staying our stay in John and Joanne’s condo. The condo has an extraordinary 180 degree view of beach and pier. The condo was even better the the pictures portrayed. I absolutely love the attention to detail. I was especially impressed about the extra a/c plugs on each side of the bed, the coasters for drinks everywhere...little things like that are important. We had prompt replies on all inquiries and comprehensive details on parking and all features of the property. I haven’t been to Oceanside in many years and I must say Oceanside has really com in to it’s own. Everything is easily accessible…the beach is just steps away and many lovely restaurants are within walking distance. We look forward to staying again…soon. Thanks John and Joanne for sharing your lovely condo.

Great place to stay by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the accommodations as advertised. The sounds of the waves could be heard from both the bedroom and the living room. Having a gas fireplace was a nice touch and the ceiling fans helped on hotter days. It was so nice to be able to walk from the property to the beach, the harbor, the pier and to shops and restaurants. Everything was in walking distance, so we did not have to drive unless we chose to. We were pleasantly surprised to find that there was soap, shampoo, lots of kitchen products and kleenex. The best find was the nail polish remover :). We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and also utilizing the massage chair. Thanks for a wonderful stay! We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Place is very nice, clean and Has everything you need for beach.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, the place was clean and have everything you need. Love the balcony seeing the ocean view . I love my morning walk at the beach finding some sand dollars and collecting some shells.The best part is only couple miles to camp Pendleton the Military base. And close to the pier were we had dinner at Ruby's it was very nice. Most of the restaurant was just a walking distance which we love. I would diffinately recommend this place. Thank you for having us diffinately love to comeback.
