Some History: The area was first visited by European explorers in 1769. The Spanish missionaries under Father Junipero Serra founded Mission San Luis Rey de Francia. In the early 1800's, introduced farming and grazing changed the landscape of what would become Oceanside. The area like all of California was under Spanish, in 1821 Mexican rule and annexed by the US in 1848.

The current city hall now stands on the former homestead of Andrew Jackson Myers. In 1882 Myers moved on the land that was the original town site for Oceanside. Incorporated July 3, 1888.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Christmas is quite spectacular at this vacation rental. The apartment complex was lit up like a holiday wonderland and we took walks every night to enjoy the amazing display among the waterfalls, ponds, and palm trees. The owners even left us a basket filled with Christmas goodies which we truly enjoyed.



The apartment itself is comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen is fully stocked, more so than large vacation homes we have rented. I was happy to find nice dishes to serve our Christmas dinner and was even happier to have everything I needed to make our meal including nice pots and pans and a colander (hard to find in rentals.) The beds and couches are very comfortable and we appreciated having spacious bedrooms. Both bathrooms were also roomy and it was so nice to have big bath towels.



The view from the top deck is fantastic and although it was unusually cold during our stay, we bundled up and sat outside listening to the waves crash while watching the sunset.



We truly enjoyed our stay and the owners were wonderful to work with. I highly recommend staying here during your Oceanside vacation. We will return again, I'm sure.

Wonderful place to stay at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, six total, stayed here and it was wonderful. There was plenty of space for everyone. The easy access to the beach and pool was a plus. The condo was well stocked and beautifully decorated. We will definitely be visiting again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this rental! The owners (Jim and Terri) keep their unit extremely clean and provide everything to make your stay enjoyable. They have equipment that comes in handy to go to the beach. Plenty of linens and towels and all the conveniences of home are available in the kitchen. This is a very comfortable unit that is roomy and has large bedrooms. It also has 2 decks (we loved the master suite on the 2nd floor with the huge roof deck). Our favorite part was listening to the crashing waves! The weather was great! Steps away from the beach and awesome walks (especially in the morning). There is plenty to do in the area and a short drive to San Diego (40 minutes). The grounds here are impeccable (like a little tropical paradise with a huge Koi pond and a beautiful pool). You'll feel safe as it is a gated community. The only negative experience was having to search the Oceanside area to get change to do laundry on the weekend (the coin machine was out of service). The association should invest in another coin machine specifically for the laundry room. Other than that..no complaints!! This was our first time staying here and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! Thank-you!!

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we used home away from home. It was easy and will use it again. This co do had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable. It was clean and had great views. The twin beds had a trundle for each. My daughter used the sofa bed and it was a memory foam mattress which she loved. We didn't want to leave.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised at the price for such a nice place. This is a big unit with plenty of room for 4 people to be super comfortable. The upstairs master is huge! Loved the location and all the places you can walk to, especially the Marina with all the cute restaurants and bars. I had the best Bloody Mary ever at Tony's! The development is well cared for a very lush. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip.

Great location, family friendly

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at

The Murrays - family of 5 (one year old, teenager, young adults and young grandmother.) It was nice to have a pack n play and high chair. The weather was cloudy so we did not use the closet full of beach supplies but they were there. We enjoyed walking to the harbour restaurants, downtown Oceanside and pier, and day trips to San Diego Zoo and historic Temecula. The location is central for day trips and the complex was family friendly.

Great vacation spot making lots of memories!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed renting the condo. We loved the location. It was great to walk on the beach gathering shells and sand dollars and a perfect walk to get bite on the pier or at the harbor restaurants. It was conveniently located to the freeway to get to all the tourist places we visited. After visiting Sea World, Animal Safari and a trip to Universal Studios, the kids favorite thing during the week was the day we spent on the beach. It was awesome to have some beach toys, chairs and Boogie Boards already in the condo. The grounds of the complex is very nice. We enjoyed feeding the Japenese Koi every day. They are fun to watch. The kids utilized the pool, hot tub and the game room too. Overall our vacation experience was fabulous! We hope to return for another vacation.
