Oceanside House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom plus a 4th sleeping room. Sleeps 2-11

This classic beach cottage is built directly on the beach in Oceanside, California. It is very popular for family beach vacations. If you have been searching for a beach vacation rental that really is directly ON the sand, with no street or sidewalk between you and the ocean, you have found it. You share none of the property with other renters and you have a fire ring and private beach that is yours alone to use and enjoy. This is not a condo. This charming and historic beach house features a large private beach and includes a private fire ring that is perfect for bonfires, roasting marshmallows or hot dogs. From your private beach and beachfront lawn you can watch whales and dolphins pass by or enjoy the evening sunsets. You can collect seashells or build sandcastles in your own back yard or take a short stroll up to the pier for food and entertainment. This classic beach cottage will remind you of summers in Cape Cod from its bead board walls to its painted blue, wood plank floors.

Great for Families: You will love the classic blue and white details and decor of this vacation rental where the property owns title all the way to the Pacific Ocean! The charming cottage is decorated in fresh blues and crisp whites. Separate entrances for each level, without an interior staircase, assure privacy when vacationing with family, grandparents and friends. The beach side deck accesses each level and has the best beach front location and views you can imagine. But, its the beach front lawn and private beach with a fire ring that everyone just raves about! Enjoy the beautiful view of the beach, sand and sea and be astounded by the sound of the crashing waves right in front of you. Collect seashells and take walks to the nearby pier for dining and entertainment. You will love this home and its privacy on the beach. Most of our guests return more than once.

Layout: From the street side, you walk up two steps to the blue and white front porch. Pass through the red front door and on this level you will find the main living room, dining room and the kitchen, all with great beach views. Also on this level, is a bathroom and a bedroom with a queen bed decorated in blues and whites. Go out the the beach side dining room sliders to the upper deck. Its a great spot to have a drink or snack while watching your family on the beach. Now go down 8 outside deck steps to reach the lower level. On the lower level you will find a quaint family room,bathroom, two bedrooms -each with a queen bed and a fourth sleeping area with two queen beds.This fourth sleeping area is perfect for kids or teens. It is a sleeping area rather than a formal bedroom and opens to the downstairs family room. It is not as private as the other 3 bedrooms. The back yard features the main deck, a wonderful lawn and private beach. The lawn has been a huge hit with all families. Its a great spot for beachfront games or a BBQ and it acts as 'natures doormat' when it comes to keeping sand out of the house. If you want to go from your private beach to the public beach you simply go down two steps to the beach and water! It really is the true beachfront house you have been looking for looking for!

Location is everything in a beachfront rental and this is on the best block in the city. You share none of the property with anyone else- it is your alone to use and enjoy. The home is very well known in the community as the Red Door House and has been featured in the city's holiday home tour. Built in 1898 and lovingly cared for, it has all the charm and romance of a classic beach cottage. The area is perfect for families. You can walk to the farmers market on Thursday mornings and get fresh local produce and food from great vendors, or walk to one of the longest piers in Southern California. There are many restaurants to choose from right at the pier, and Ruby's at the end of the pier. On Thursday evenings the street fair is set up again with live music, vendors with hundreds of options for gifts and every type of food you can imagine. There is now a small 'Stone Brewery' to stop in at and get a wonderful craft beer while sitting around an out door fire pit. The famous 'Top Gun' house is located just a few hundred yards down the Strand for a nostalgic photo opportunity. Want to see a movie? There is Regal 16 movies right up the street. There is also many restaurants you can walk to including Hello Betty, Local Tap House, Bagbys Brewing Company, Masters, The Flying Pig and 333. The nearby village of Carlsbad on State street has great shops and food too.

This is a family beach cottage. If the rental you are looking for is a granite, chrome and marble mansion on the beach.......this is probably not the home you are looking for. BUT if you love wood plank floors, billowy white curtains, bead board walls and being barefoot....you should love this house!

If you have more questions we are more than happy to speak with you or email about this beachfront home. Our calendars are not always accurate so please inquire by phone or email and verify the date you want is open and the exact rate for that week.

This home is great for weddings on the beach, reunions and special events. Please inquire for details. Built in 1898 and once owned by silent screen stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, this cottage on the seashore is perfect for your next seaside vacation

About Kim

Raised our family on the beach and now we enjoy sharing the home with others

Why Kim chose Oceanside

Its one of the few beach rentals to NOT have a street, hillside or public used walkway between the home and the ocean. It really is ON the beach

What makes this house unique

You have a private fire ring and private beach with a lush green lawn! This is far away from the strand and all the noisy/dense/jammed condo rentals where you have to share so much of your vacation and vacation property with strangers. Here you have safety and privacy for family time.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have been to this charming beachfront home so many times all of my grandkids think this is "Grandmas Beach House" We love the lawn right on the beach. It is just perfect for three generations to enjoy our time at the beach. Its cute as a button.

Amazing Beach Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from an absolutely amazing week at this house! We went with 13 people (8 adults, 5 kids) and felt like we had ample space. Although admittedly, we spent the majority of time outside. If you have the chance to stay here, you'll understand why!

We all commented that although we wouldn't have looked for it, having the grass area in the back was fantastic. The kids could run and play and it kept the house a lot cleaner. We bbq'd every night and ate our meals on the picnic tables in the sand. The fire pit was amazing at night and of course, this house is RIGHT ON THE BEACH! Just a few steps out the back door and we were on an awesome beach. It never felt crowded, water was great, and we could watch dolphins ride the waves...unbeatable!

To top it off, Kim the owner was fantastic. It was so nice to have her two doors down and although she was there when we needed her, it never felt like she was "checking in on us". Overall she was a pleasure to work with.

The memories we created with friends and family here will be something we all remember for years and years to come. I recommend this experience 100%.

Wonderful Family Retreat ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
A fabulous place for families! We spent over a week at this gem of a house. It was a perfect place for our families (4 adults and 5 kids) to stay and enjoy all the amenities of So. Cal. A mere 10 minutes from Lego Land, 40 min from San Diego and an hour from Disney, we were able to visit all the attractions. Some of our best memories, however, were the days we stayed at the house and enjoyed the amazing beach and adorable home.

The grassy area was a total bonus. It was a great place for kids to play when they were tired of the beach and also helped keep the sand out of the house. All in all, we loved our stay and would recommend it to anybody looking for a place truly right on the beach. No bells and whistles, no over the top luxury. Just a charming house with lots to offer. We will definitely be back!

This home provided the perfect getaway. The view was breathtakingly spectacular. With comfortable beds, deluxe linens, and gourmet kitchen supplies, we wanted for nothing. Kim was available and helpful throughout our stay. Would definitely return to this place and recommend it to close friends!

Better than a home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Every convenience of home right on the beach. There were 5 adults and 4 kids on our vacation. So much to do. So relaxing. Highly recommended. Our second year in this condo and we'll be back next year! Kim was so easy to work with and very helpful in planning our vacation.

Notes:
This classic and vintage beachfront cottage was once the home of screen stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. Their home is a classic Cape Cod on the sand. A perfect spot for an intimate beach wedding and reception.You can walk to the farmers market on Thursday mornings and get fresh local produce and food from hu vendors, or walk to one of the longest piers in Southern California. There are two restaurants to choose from right at the pier, and Ruby's at the end of the pier. On Thursday evenings the street fair is set up again with live music, vendors with hundreds of options for gifts and every type of food you can imagine. There is now a small 'Stone Brewery' to stop in at and get a wonderful craft beer while sitting around an out door firepit. The famous 'Top Gun' house is located just a few hundred yards down the Strand for a nostalgic photo opportunity. Want to see a movie? There is a theatre right up the street. There is also many restaurants, including Hello Betty and 333
