About Jean Forman, Robyn Forman

In the 1980's, my parents, Irv and Jean, were introduced to North Coast Village. They were so impressed with the complex amenities, the location, and the overall ambience, they decided to purchase a 'beach house' for our family to enjoy. Then in the 90's they made the life-changing decision to leave LA and move to the beach full time. Opportunity, (and being in the right place at the right time) afforded them a chance to purchase a few other condos and was born. They were pioneers in North Coast Village, as they were the first to start renting condos out for short term vacations.. and so was the beginnings of our 'family business'. When my dad became ill 3 years ago I moved here from Arizona to help my mom with the business.

Sadly my dad passed away in Dec 2013. He was 88 years old. Jean is now 88, but in good health and still in charge!


Jean Forman, Robyn Forman purchased this condo in 1986

Why Jean Forman, Robyn Forman chose Oceanside

Many people think this condo has one of the best views in North Coast Village. Its location is private and quiet compared to many other 2 bedrooms and we fell in love with it.

(and another plus, it's one level inside)

What makes this condo unique

We are rare as owners because we live here in North Coast Village. During your vacation, should anything happen or you need anything, we can give you immediate attention.

Amazing Stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just recently returned from our stay at Jean and Robyn's place. Like the other reviewers I want this to stay a hidden gem. We cannot wait to return!! Probably the kindest most welcoming host we have experienced yet.

To start- check in and check out we're easy and low stress. Started the vibe of the whole trip. Relaxing, quiet and low stress.

We traveled with our one year old and five year old. As soon as they saw we had the kids they provided beach toys and a high chair. That was in addition to the beach chairs, boogie boards and beach umbrella already provided. Far more than we would have ever expected.

We have rented in Carlsbad many of times and I can say this trip was more relaxing and quiet by far. The condo community is a short walk to the Marina, which had great food. Close to pier- we didn't end up going by it seemed to be a quick few minute drive.

The kids loved the heated pool and grounds. It was beautiful. So well maintained and lush.

The condo had everything we needed. Literally we didn't have to worry about anything. And not to mention my daughter looked forward to seeing and hugging Jean when she did. Made our vacatation to stay in such a beautiful condo on the beach and amazing owners on top of it!!! Doesn't get much better than that. We cannot wait to come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Juliana! It is so gratifying to hear when a guest appreciates all the little things we do to try and make sure their vacation is the best it can be. You have a beautiful family and you were perfect guests! We hope to see you again soon. Jean and Robyn

DON'T READ THIS REVIEW ... I'm fearful too many people will book it and it won't be available again.

  • 5 of 5

There are two reasons I have delayed and been reluctant to write this review:

1) I don't want to admit we're not there anymore. Have you ever had one of those trip locations that was perfect for you? ...exactly what you needed? ...exceeded your expectations? This was one of those locations for us.

2) I am fearful that this rental will become too popular and will not be available when we want to book it again. We want to return in a few months so please don't book it when we want it. :)

Having said that, I feel I MUST say (regardless of how even more popular this place may become because of my review) that Robyn and Jean and this condo were absolutely perfect and wonderful for me and my family.

From the moment we walked in and saw the view from our 3rd floor patio and then the TWO AMAZING VIEWS from the corner master bedroom, we knew we were "home." We actually tried to extend our visit but some other lucky folks were coming in the same day we left.

The convenience of having our parking spot in the garage 3 floors down, immediately out the door of the stairwell, which was right next to the condo door, was only minimized by the fact that we never wanted to leave the property. We did enjoy the Oceanside community when we went to the store to stock up on groceries for our stay. It looked like there were some great restaurants in Oceanside as well, but we chose to stay at the property and just eat there so as to enjoy every possible minute there, instead of travelling about.

We LOVED the fact that just about 30 or 40 steps outside the stairwell door, our feet were in the sand! We also loved that just inside the property gate, there was a handy foot shower to wash the sand off so we didn't track it up to the condo.

The Oceanside Pier, with it's amazing views among the surfers, was just a brief walk to the south. We loved the view of the pier out the south windows of both bedrooms and off the side of the patio/balcony.

Just a few paces to the north, if it's low tide and you can cross the little river outlet, or walk back to the street and cross the bridge, is Oceanside Harbor with yummy looking restaurants and shops (though we didn't try any this visit as I said before, content to just hang in the condo and eat meals on the balcony). Walking out on the Jetty you can get some amazing views and pictures right out with the surfers. Be sure and look down at the crabs and mussels and other micro ocean life.

I'm out of room but have way more to say! More next visit!

Owner's Response: Dear John and Family- I truly am at a loss for words to thank you for this most awesome review. You and your family were dream guests. From your initial inquiry and communicating before your arrival,we knew how much you were looking forward to this beach vacation that we wanted everything to be as close to perfect as possible. It brings us great joy to know we didn't disappoint. Please come back soon! Jean and Robyn

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent our last Christmas/New Year's here and chose to return for two weeks again this year. That's how great this place is! It is so relaxing and low-key ... perfect for us (a mom with three teenagers and a 7 year old) to just have some togetherness and recharge. Our only outing outside of Oceanside on this trip was taking the Coaster in to San Diego (we walked to the train station and the kids had never been on a train, so that was fun). We toured the amazing USS Midway and then wandered around the shops at Seaport Village. Other than that, we spent a lot of time on the beach directly in front of the condo. The teens managed to surf this year (with wet suits and surf boards provided at the condo) and had a great time. My youngest loved playing in the sand with the sand toys and buckets, while I enjoyed the view from a beach chair, with a drink in my hand and my toes in the sand (sand toys, beach chairs and beach towels were all provided). We wandered up and down the beach, fished off the jetty, strolled on the dock, enjoyed lunch at Ruby's, explored the harbor, and feasted on a crab dinner. We even ventured into town to the movies one night. The pool and the hot tub were a big hit again; we used them daily/nightly. Other than that, we took full advantage of the beautifully remodeled kitchen (after a shopping trip to Costco and Walmart). It had everything we could possibly need. We read books, watched movies, played board games (borrowed from the game room next to the laundry room) and of course, enjoyed the quick wifi. Mom's favorite spot was still the deck ... whether drinking coffee and watching surfers in the morning or drinking an adult beverage and watching the sunset in the evening. Jean and Robyn proved to once again be great hostesses and we couldn't have asked for a better spot for our vacation. We love this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you once again for such a wonderful, thoughtful review. We are so happy that you make the most out of the condo and have the opportunity to enjoy the amenities of North Coast Village. Hope to see you and the boys again next December. Sincerely, Jean and Robyn

Beautiful condo/wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our two week vacation in the two bedroom/two bath corner condo that overlooked the ocean. Myself (mom) and four boys (a 6 year old and three teenagers) enjoyed ourselves immensely. Jean and Robyn were the perfects hostesses and they made sure our every need was met. The condo was comfortable and every detail had been thought of. There were wet suits for the kids, sand toys, boogie boards and even surf boards. There were beach chairs provided and plenty of beach towels. The beach was mere steps away and we spent much time on the beach, even in December. The pool was wonderful, but mom thought the hot tub was even better. As you can see from the pictures, the hot tub is large and almost clover shaped ... allowing for lots of people and giving groups a little privacy. It wasn't your typical hotel hot tub where four people were sitting shoulder to shoulder. My kids enjoyed the game room and played pool, foos ball and ping pong. We utilized the community laundry room a few times, which came in handy. We went on several excursions to the zoo, the safari, Legoland and SeaWorld. Other than that, we enjoyed staying around the condo, as we loved the pool, hot tub and beach. We watched a few movies on Netflix and the kids thought the free wifi was exceptional. The beds were comfortable (a king and two twins), and the living room was a cozy hang-out. The kitchen had everything we needed (and we only ate two meals out). We barbecued both on the private barbecue on the deck, as well as on the community barbecue downstairs. The private garage parking was convenient and we loved the lush grounds. We brought our bicycles with us and there was bike storage in the garage. One of my favorite spots was sitting on the deck watching the sunset, sipping on a drink. I loved to hear the ocean waves lull me to sleep. After watching the North Coast video online, I was concerned there would be too many rules and it would be a complex of "older folks" who would not welcome kids or families. I was skeptical that we wouldn't fit in and was a tad bit afraid that we would be the "rule breakers." I found none of that to be true and we had a wonderful time. Jean and Robyn live right next door and were available to answer any questions promptly and were exceptionally kind and accommodating to us. I would HIGHLY recommend this condo ... the view and the comfort and amenities can't be beat. Thanks Jean and Robyn for sharing your bit of paradise with us!

Owner's Response: Sandy, thank you so much for an awesome review. Your family was an absolute pleasure to have as guests. Who would ever guess that 4 boys (3 of them teens!) would turn out to be such great guests, but you and your boys were the best. We are so happy that you are coming back in Dec! Sincerely, Jean and Robyn

Jean & Robyn Very Helpful

  • 5 of 5

It is always scary paying for a rental sight unseen but in this case it was everything they said. Our unit was #312. We only needed 1 bedroom but with 2 we had a place to just store our suitcases. The 2 bathrooms were very helpful and we enjoyed the huge shower. It was so nice to have windows facing both south and west to help with airflow. We loved the sound of the surf day and night. The rocking chair in the living room was great for my husband who has artificial knees. The kitchen had more than enough dinnerware etc. They provided fans as it was a fluke and California was experiencing hot weather. We loved the balcony with chairs to watch the fun on the ocean and admire the beautiful sunsets. The security gate was nice and parking underneath the units ideal. We loved the property had an oasis of flowers and trees and waterfalls which we could walk around. The walk on the beach and down to the nearby pier were so nice. We would surely stay here again.

Our location in Oceanside is the perfect starting point for all of your Southern California adventures.

Legoland is only 15 minutes away..

45 minutes south to the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Wild Animal Park, Museums at Balboa Park, and everything San Diego has to offer. Disneyland & Knott's Berry Farm are only 1 hour North from Oceanside.

A 2 hour drive and you can be at Universal Studios and Hollywood.

Take a leisurely drive south along Coast Hwy for unparalleled ocean views. Explore the quaint beach towns along the way with their unique shops and many excellent restaurants. La Jolla has tide-pools and Del Mar has the Ponies. A 45 min drive east on Hwy 76 will take you to the town of Temecula, where you can taste the local wineries and feel the excitement at Pechanga Casino!

A short walk across the bridge from North Coast Village ..... Oceanside Harbor and Marina offers a variety of eateries, a specialty coffee house, and unique shops. The Lighthouse Fish Market has fresh fish daily at reasonable prices. At the harbor you can sign your kids up for Surf Camp, learn to Paddleboard, rent a Kayak, schedule a Whale watching or Deep Sea fishing trip and bring home your own fresh caught dinner.

Every Thursday is MARKET DAY in Downtown Oceanside. The FARMERS MARKET (9AM to 1PM) offers Certified & Organic Fresh Produce, Baked Goods, Fresh Flowers, Handcrafts and Hot Foods (try the crepes!). The SUNSET MARKET (5-9 PM) is a family friendly festival every week. Hot Food from Around the World, Live Entertainment, Unique Crafts, Gourmet Treats.

Walk south along the Strand to the Pier where you can fish (no license required) and watch the surfers below.

Carlsbad offers free 'Concerts in the Park all summer. Oceanside has an annual Art Walk and is home to the Ironman and many other marathons and competitions. Activities abound... yet all the years my family has been coming here (30 yrs!) my kids tell me their favorite memories are of the days we packed a lunch, grabbed the beach towels and boogie boards and headed out the door, because here, the beach is your backyard.
