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 Oceanside

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 in this place with the finest quality!!

What makes this villa unique

Whoever makes the reservation will be the HERO of the day when they 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.

This home is perfect for those looking to have the ocean lapping at your doorstep !

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Linda the owners are lovely and very attentive to any questions you may have about the home or the area. We liked this home because of the view, the kitchen living area, the cleanliness, and location. (Other rentals in the area near the pier are right on the strand and have car traffic in front of the homes). A 5 minute walk and you are at the pier and all that it offers. It is worth mentioning - not because it's a negative but because some people have physical limits - the house has plenty of stairs inside the home and access to the beach in front isn't easy for those who have knee or balance issues. Drive time to the airport is 40 minutes, same with the zoo. La Jolla is about 25 minutes away. There is a Trader Joe's about 12 minutes away. We will be back as the home fit our needs beautifully. Thank you Bob and Linda :D

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Carrie for your thoughtful comments. Yes, it's pretty hard not to have steps when living on the beach in this area. There are two levels inside our place, with a curving stairway of 14 steps that take you down to three other bedrooms on our patio/private beach level, and approx. 10 stairs made of rock (with railing) to get to the ocean.

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!

Second Visit. Still in love with this property.

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have stayed here and this rental is perfect for our family getaways from the MN winters. We have been coming to Oceanside for 6 consecutive years and have stayed at two other properties before this one. Even though there are 11 of us (8 adults and 3 kids) the space fits us perfectly.

Our favorite features are:

- location (right on the ocean)

- view (we watch whales, dolphins, and seals from the dining room window)

- clean (important with young children playing on the floor)

- quiet (we like to be away from the traffic and crowds)

- lower level patio (perfect place to watch the sunset)

- sand feature in the patio (sandcastles are a favorite pastime)

- Bob and Linda (over the top hospitality)

We hope to be back in 2018 for another visit!

A great place for a multi-family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This two-story unit is uniquely designed and beautiful throughout. We had 8 guests for a week over Thanksgiving and the spacious areas were very comfortable. The views through the floor to ceiling glass off the kitchen are unbeatable. The owners (Bob and Linda) have a separate unit above this rental, but privacy is not an issue. We had several children during our stay and there are ample beach toys in the garage to use. We spent many evenings around the fire pit at sunset enjoying great conversation while being able to watch our children on the beach just several steps below.

As a multi vacation-rental owner myself in Pajaro Dunes and Lake Tahoe, I am very observant of how other owner's maintain and prepare their units for their guests. Bob and Linda set the bar very high with the unit's cleanliness, comfort, amenities, and owner responsiveness.

We had a great time and will hold on to the memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Craig, for your kind comments. Just a note to clarify, this is a part-time residence for us as we spend time throughout the year at our home in the desert, mountain home in Vail and condo in Chi-Town. The upper unit at the beach is never rented.

More beautiful than can be described

  • 5 of 5

Bob thought I'd written a review before (actually my daughter Michelle!) but I can echo what she wrote but want to add my own comments. There is actually much more space in the home than any description can show. Everything in the home was first class and all 10 of the cooks could be in the kitchen at the same time!! Steps were a surprise, but the only negative for me (but then I'm 86 years old) however, coming from high altitude Utah to my original stomping grounds at sea level, made breathing quite nice. Bob and Linda are wonderful hosts and we couldn't have asked for more. The evenings around the firepit with smores were most memorable for all 11 of us. Everyone should experience this earthly vacation in a heavenly location.

Our family Staycation!

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Linda are great people and the rental they have built is simply top shelf. Our family has stayed here for 6 consecutive years and my 5 kids can't wait to come back next year. The convenience of being on the beach at any given moment is priceless to catch the waves you want.

The home is spacious and provides a lot of privacy when sharing the home with others. The extensive Kitchen area with endless views of the ocean are amazing! Let's not forget the beautiful sunsets as well from any place facing the beach.

I have children ages 4-15 and there is endless amounts of fun for everyone. With a large family, NO airplanes...NO TSA lines... and pressure to be a tourist... This is the Perfect vacation to unwind and recharge! You will not regret it and its worth every penny.
