About Bob Enright

After being in the Pre- IPO high tech software business for the last 33 years, I decided to build two new homes on the beach in Oceanside, Ca. and one is the rental.  My wife and I also enjoy spending time in our desert La Quinta home and the mountains of Vail, Co.

Bob Enright purchased this villa in 2002

Why Bob Enright chose Townsite

we razed our 60 yr old home and built two new homes on the beach with completion in July of 2008.

I was the owner/builder and tried to make everything with the finest quality!!

What makes this villa unique

Whoever makes the reservation will be the HERO of the day upon their arrive!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

THE FOLLOWING EMAIL WAS JUST RECEIVED FROM OUR LATEST GUESTS (MARCH 2010): Bob and Linda –AWESOME! Thanks for sharing your amazing view, fantastic beach, wonderful accommodations, and perfectly located home during our Spring Break family vacation. It seems rare these days to be pleasantly surprised by much but you succeeded on a grand scale. Prior to our arrival we had the best intentions of using this central location as our hub while we explored San Diego and Orange County. After going to sleep while the Ocean crashed less than 50 feet from our beds, we awoke to Dolphins surfing the waves and promptly scaled back our plans of leaving this wonderful haven. Fresh coffee and the full breakfast menu from the Buccaneer (3 blocks away) only affirmed this decision. We did venture out to Sea World and Disney, at your recommended times, and battled limited traffic with time left over for a few scenic detours as we rushed back to enjoy the ocean sounds and perfect sunsets. We also enjoyed the Pier and several of the recommended restaurants, all within minutes and great directions. This was the first time that almost my entire family traveled to gather at a vacation spot but it quickly became known as the “1st Annual”. We are all quickly reviewing our schedules to get our spot reserved for 2011! We look forward to seeing you, and your home, again soon! Sincerely,Bret Henderson and familyPS – you are welcome to post this to your website, will send a few pics as well.

It is better than advertized!

  • 5 of 5

We took a well needed trip to Oceanside with our family during our kids fall break. First let me say the pictures do not do the house justice. Everything about this house is top notch. The kitchen is amazing with well appointed appliances, utensils and dinnerware. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms are great too. Linens we high quality and the beds were very comfortable. There was easily enough space for all ten of us.

Not only are you right on the beach, (like walk out your door and there it is) but you are walking distance to the pier and the Thursday night street festival too. You are also short drive to Carlsbad where there are some fantastic restaurants and places to shop.

The house also has everything you need to have fun at the beach too, boogie boards, sand toys and umbrellas to protect you from the sun. We cant wait to come back!

Dolphins, seals and sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing month in this rental.

Waking up in the morning to a full glass view of the ocean--having coffee while watching seals and dolphins--was amazing. The kitchen was fully stocked and super functional for the whole family to cook.

Sunsets were breathtaking and we often took the 20 min walk to the Oceanside pier, or to downtown Oceanside to Swami's cafe and a great Thai restaurant. Carlsbad village was a quick 5 min drive away too. The area was safe for kids to run down to the beach on low tide.

Bob and Linda were accommodating and responsive with our needs and requests. The rental was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed (boogie boards, sand toys, extra blankets, brand new washer/dryer).

I HIGHLY recommend!

Delightful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about this property other than fabulous. Spacious, in excellent condition, all the perfect amenities and did I mention Right on the beach. The owners are extremely gracious. It fits our family perfectly so we keep coming back year after year. With such a great property, we didn’t venture out to take in the local cuisine. We rode bikes, played in the surf and enjoyed the sunsets.

Our “Home away from Home” and can’t wait until next year.

This property is a 5 star, and I highly recommend it, you won’t go wrong.

WOW! -- Oceanside Beach Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

I’m so happy a friend of mine stayed here and told me about this beach house. His recommendation and all the 5 star reviews made it the logical choice for me and my family for almost a 2-week stay. We truly loved it. We had a party of eight and everyone raved about being right on the ocean, listening to the sounds of the waves, dolphins swimming by, our own private beach and watching sunsets from our 2nd floor balcony. I’m an outdoor person, but the inside has a great floor plan with floor-to-ceiling windows in the kitchen making you feel like you’re outside even when you’re in, and a view of the ocean from every room. The reviews were spot-on. We’ll definitely be back at our first opportunity.

BEST place we have ever stayed!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Having traveled to the California coast often, we have seen our share of rental properties. Some good, some awful, but we were never lucky enough to find that “PERFECT PLACE”. From the first inquiry to the day we left, everything was awesome. Bob and Linda are very personable and professional, making the stay that much better. The rental portion of the home is actually below street level on the down slope to the beach. There are marble floors, granite counter tops, and stainless appliances throughout the home. It was spotless upon our arrival, with a fresh bag of Bob’s favorite coffee and a nice welcome sign. The first (upper) floor has a beautiful and large kitchen overlooking the beautiful Pacific less than 50 feet away. Big glass wall, and a nice deck overlooking the “beach yard” and the ocean. Big screen TV, reclining chairs, sunken bar area, full bath, office area (with bed) and a 5th sleeping area with 3 beds. The kitchen has more silverware and utensils than we have at home, I think. Lots (I mean LOTS) of nice extras like spices, cooking sprays, sugar, flour, etc. Tons of dish towels and no skimping on dishes or pots and pans. A+ quality! The 2nd (lower) floor is connected to the first floor by a large granite staircase. 2 nice bedrooms with a “Jack and Jill’ shared full bath, large laundry room with new appliances and iron/ironing board. A linen closet filled with high quality bath towels and more than 2 armfuls of beach towels. The master is huge with a beautiful tub AND shower, his and her sinks with beautiful tile work. Master is super nice queen bed and has a sitting area with single bed. Access the “beach yard” through all 3 bedrooms of side stairs from main floor. The yard sits 10 feet above the wet/dry beach with good stairs to go down onto the sand during low tides. The big and sandy yard has seating for about 20 people in yard, lounge or table chairs. The table has a huge umbrella. The yard and a block Firepit for evening fires and s’mores. There is a patio are between the yard and the house for more privacy and it has a great propane grill. The owners live upstairs and never bother you. But if you need anything, they are most helpful and super nice people! If you have any experience renting mediocre or bad rentals with poor quality stuff and ones lacking enough towels, blankets, pillows, pans, etc.; you will be pleasantly please with this rental. We have rented up and down the west coast and this one is hand-down the best one yet!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, Kevin, and would just like to mention a couple things. The master bed is actually a CA King not queen and we live there part time because we also have a place in La Quinta, Ca., Vail, Co. and Chi-town, Ill. Our upstairs home is never rented. Thanks again and kind regards.

A vacation to remember!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family vacation. The location is easily accessible to downtown, the harbor and all shopping areas. We even made the short trip to Disneyland. The home layout is awesome, easily accommodating our family of 11. The property is clean and well taken care of with every detail thought of to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is even satellite tv including Netflix for the kids. The private sand area is perfect for small children and we used the fire pit several times for roasting marshmallows. What could be better at the beach? There is plenty of sand toys, boogie boards, beach towels etc. I would definitely recommend and we look forward to a return visit someday!
