Oceanfront - Private Beach!

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our spectacular beach house is 'On The Sand,' offering its own private beach while providing white water views and soothing ocean sounds (you hear the surf in every room). It has a bright beachy decor and a quiet location - conveniently located halfway between the Village in Carlsbad and the Pier in Oceanside (we walk on the sand to both).

This completely renovated home is fully furnished (we relax here frequently) and offers sweeping ocean views from La Jolla to Catalina. You can watch the dolphins play or the whales spout from the living room, deck, or beach.

At night, visit one of the area's fine restaurants or simply dine on the beach while watching the beautiful sun set over the Pacific. During the day, relax on the beach or enjoy the numerous activities that are unique to this fabulous destination.


This listing is for UNIT C

UNIT C (sleeps 1 to 4): Has 1 bedroom & 1 bathroom and has a queen size bed in the bedroom, a twin size bed in a 'galleyway', and a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room.

There are 3 different units. Unit A (2 Bd, 1 Ba - sleeps 6), Unit B (2 Bd, 2 Ba - sleeps 6), and Unit C (1 Bd, 1 Ba - sleeps 4). Unit A is VRBO #882233, Unit B is VRBO #882234, and all 3 units are VRBO #882235.

The units are vertically arranged with Unit A at the street level, Unit B in the middle, and Unit C at the sand level. All 3 units face the ocean, have oceanfront decks, and share the private beach.

Our beach house is 'well cared for' since we personally (as well as our family) stay in all 3 units, and we do have wireless broadband internet access. Over the years, we have had 100s of delighted beach loving guests.

Great view/ great shopping nearby

Owner's Response: The rock steps to the main beach should be fine for most individuals. They have been the same for the 17 years we've owned the property and we have many guests age 70+ (including my mother) who go up and down the steps regularly. There is also a handrail. Additionally, there are two public access points nearby. One 2 houses to the north and the second at Buccaneer Beach which is .2 mile south.

Great Location!

We were fortunate enough to get to meet Kelley while she was double checking her units and we immediately knew we had made the right choice. You can tell she goes above and beyond to ensure a great stay.

Our family loves this vacation rental unit (5 steps from the private beach), this is the 4th time we have stayed here. We love to sit on the deck and watch the Dolphins swim by eawch morning and evening. It is always a very peaceful and relaxing vacation. We love to hang out on the private beach, read a book and watch the sea life and surfers just beyond the front yard. We also enjoy going for walks along the public beach, collecting sea shells and seeing the sights.

This unit is nicely decorated in a comfortable Cape Cod beach theme. We always sleep well and love falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves!

Almost Heaven.

  • 4 of 5

There is almost nothing that isn't perfect about this're steps from toes in sand, windows open to glorious sounds of ocean waves, kitchen is incredibly well supplied & offers all new appliances, views of sunsets & dolphin watching are unbeatable, furnishings are colorful & comfortable, housekeeping staff keep the place immaculate (except I washed the windows that were cloudy!), internet is fast & free, pillows are replaced frequently so they are always fresh & fluffy, and Kelly took care of me like her best friend's mom. Sooooo much to LOVE about this place and this owner!

Unfortunately, the noise from other vacationers in this 3 story rental was at times unbearable. This unit is on the lowest of the 3 levels. The rental unit on level 2 is larger and during my entire stay hosted a family of stomping adults and screaming toddler & baby. I asked them several times to keep it down but no luck. I want to say that it isn't the owner's fault but a quick read of the Guest Book mentions the noise and plea for some sound-proofing on the upstairs floors. Because I was desperate for quiet rest as I recover from health issues, Kelly jumped through incredible hoops to help me find another place to stay. But all other available rentals were way over my budget. My best rest was on my final night when I slept in the yard on a beach chair. Crashing waves trump screaming toddler any day, especially at 6 a.m. If the floors upstairs were carpeted or otherwise reinforced, this place would be heaven on earth. I'll be back...but I'll request the upstairs units instead (and I'll be thoughtful for the benefit of those below.)

Why Kelley chose Townsite

We had long desired to have a beachfront home and when we found this gem we were thrilled. We selected this area because it is right in the middle of a beautiful wide sandy beach that stretches for 3 miles from the village of Carlsbad to the pier in Oceanside. We also liked the fact that the house was located in a less dense area with mostly beach homes. Most of all we were excited by the private beach and the fact that we didn’t have to cross a street or get in a car to enjoy the ocean!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Good morning Marilyn,

I can't even begin to tell you how much fun we had and what an incredible vacation this was for our family. Our kids said it was the "best ever" and I would absolutely have to agree. It was so beautiful & so relaxing. We've told all our friends and family about it and I wouldn't be surprised if they contacted you about future vacations. I know my husband's family wants to do a big family vacation and rent all 3 levels. Hopefully, it's something that we can work out for next year. (If that falls through, I know Jeremy & I would love to come back.)

Thank you again for everything!
