    It's time for an oh-so-awesome Oceanside vacation

    With an Oceanside vacation rental, the water's warm, the surf's up, and the living's easy. Pretty much halfway between L.A. and San Diego, Oceanside's one of a cluster of upmarket oceanfront cities along this stretch of the California coast. What really marks Oceanside out is its good looks, with its long, wooden pier, charming old harbor, and its elegant whitewashed Spanish colonial mission. Oh, and did we mention the craft breweries? This part of California is a beer lover's paradise, so when you're done on the beach, you might want to rehydrate with a bottle of local brew.

    Wax down those surfboards, and get some salt in your hair

    The name of this place should give you a clue about the main activities on offer with an Oceanside vacation rental. Surfers and sun worshippers flock to the 3.5-mile beach, and you'll also find plenty of sailors mooring their yachts up in the old-school harbor on sunny summer evenings. There's plenty of culture and sightseeing in town, and many vacationers are also hooked in by the city's busy program of events. From big sporting occasions like surfing competitions, long-distance cycle races, and beach soccer tournaments, right down to the weekly sunset market with food and live music.

    Sightseeing in Oceanside is the right sort of mission

    Feel like you haven't lived till you've seen the board that surfer Bethany Hamilton was on when she survived her famous shark attack? Don't worry, the California Surf Museum's got you covered. When you're done there, you could follow it up with a bit of art at the Oceanside Museum. And Oceanside's got some fairly iconic landmarks, too. The old Spanish mission, built in 1811, is a famous local attraction, while the Oceanside Pier is one of the longest wooden piers in the States and a favorite local fishing spot. It has a 50s-style diner stuck out on the end.

    When a dry spell is exactly what you're after

    You won't need to pack the oilskins and sou'westers for your Oceanside vacation rental, since this stretch of coast sees precious little rain. What's more, the temperatures are pretty mild even in the depths of winter, making Oceanside a perfect year-round destination. Come summer, it can get pretty hot, but it's never scorching, and fortunately the coastal location means there's usually a nice fresh breeze to take the edge off things. If you're in town for the surfing, then the gentler beginners' conditions are in the summer months, with the big swells turning up in the winter.

    Whether you're after sea creatures or selfies, they're here

    Oceanside is the last coastal city in San Diego County. Head any farther north, and you're in Orange County. This stretch of the Pacific coast is pretty spectacular, with rocky coastline, sandy beaches, and big waves to keep the surfers salty. Much of the coastline in San Diego County is protected, and the abundance of marine wildlife makes the area popular with fishermen. And if you're fishing for likes rather than sea creatures, the sight of the sun setting into the ocean just off the end of the pier is Instagram gold.
