Townsite Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

Why Kelley chose Oceanside

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!

Breathtaking Views! Unbelievable Value!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is the perfect place to fully experience all that Southern CA has to offer. The views from the unit & private beach are breathtaking. We love to just sit on the private beach or deck and soak up the feeling of being right on the ocean, but having your own private space. You are so close to the ocean, the sound of the waves lull you to sleep. The unit is decorated in comfortable beachy decor. Very casual and not fussy. The owners are very responsive and Kelley is always very helpful.

When we are not hanging out enjoying the ocean, we love to see the sights of the area. The Oceanside Surf Museum is such fun and is only 1 1/2 miles away. The museum has great surf memorabilia and actually has Bethany Hamilton's original surf board & swimsuit she was wearing. My kids find it such an inspirational story about never giving up! Also, Legoland is just 15 mins away and a quick 40 minute drive to San Diego Zoo, Sea World or Orange Co. You are literally in between all southern CA sightseeing.

The restaurants in the area are really wonderful. Everything from casual beer gardens to up scale. Our favorites are Swami's & Beach Break Cafe for breakfast and Pacifica 333 and Bagby for dinner.

We highly recommend this vacation rental. It has helped us create some great family memories and experiences that kids are still talking about!

Incredible Views! Incredible Value!

  • 5 of 5

We love this rental! We have stayed at many other rentals in the area and this was by far the best!

The views are spectacular, including dolphins everyday of our stay. The private fenced beach creates a very exclusive vacation.

The unit is close to restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques. Also, it is also only 20 mins from Legoland and half way between the San Diego Zoo and Disney.

It is decorated in a beach cottage theme, very clean and the owners were very responsive any time we contacted them. In fact, as I mentioned we have stayed at many other places in the area, these owners are the best! Also, our deposit was promptly returned.

We had such a great time our kids are begging us to go back. We will definitely be booking this unit for our next vacation to escape the Arizona heat!

Beautiful place right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I went out to celebrate my Aunt's birthday. This place was beautiful. He is from Colorado, so being on the ocean was heaven on earth. The private beach is right there, but the deck was so nice we just sat there and relaxed all day. The unit is spectacular! I have stayed in 20 VRBO's and the owners here were the BEST at getting back with all needed info and anything we needed. The unit was super quiet except for the great sound of waves as you fall asleep at night. If you like North County, this is a great deal. it is a little distance from downtown but the surrounding towns are beautiful and you can get the train. I will definitely be wanting to come here again!

Best place for incredible family memories!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rents this home for a week every summer. The ocean view is spectacular, the home is nicely furnished in a beach cottage theme and is always clean and fresh. The kitchen is always well stocked with everything we need. Our family particularly enjoys hanging out on the private fenced beach. It is a safe place for the kids to play and for adults to enjoy their vacation too. The owners are always on top of things and very responsive whenever we contact them. We very highly recommend this vacation rental!

Wonderful view! Great owners! Great value!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed at this property. First year we stayed in the bottom unit just my wife, daughter and I. Last two years we stayed in top unit with my parents and niece & nephew in tow. Everyone loved it!

We love this place. And the owners are always easy to deal with and very attentive. The view is great. The price is quite good considering you're right on the ocean. Area is good. Basically, its the south end of Oceanside, right up against the Carlsbad border if you will. Plenty of good restaurants in both Oceanside and Carlsbad. Easy shopping.

Nothing like strolling on the beach, enjoying the fire pit, or just sitting on the porch staring at the ocean waves and sunset.

I can highly recommend this property.

Great accomodation comes at a price

  • 4 of 5

If you like seaside accommodation where you can hear the waves and have coffee on your deck while watching surfers, then this is the place for you. This property has three levels and we stayed on the top level which provides the best view. The balcony is large and is very private providing the neighbors are not home. The interior is spacious with ocean views from the living room, kitchen and the large master bedroom. Even in the smaller back bedroom you can hear the surf all night. All three levels have beach access and the yard is sandy with an older BBQ. However if there are tenants on the bottom level you might not feel comfortable using the area.

Although not really a bargain, the spacious rooms and ocean view justify the high price. To get the most value you should share the accommodation as it will easily hold four people. Parking is limited and is likely a problem when all units are occupied. We stayed in March and used one of the two spaces available. Access is best for the top unit as the entry is at street level. The place is vintage with dated décor and could be kept cleaner. If you are there for the minimum four day stay then beware that you will be charged a hefty fee for cleaning, which is the same for people that stay much longer pay. We found the damage deposit onerous. Beware also that your money could be in limbo for a long time. It was six weeks before we received the deposit back as the money transfers are archaic. We booked late so had to send a US$ bank draft by registered mail from Canada, which is not cheap, in order to secure our rent. We have spoken with the owners, who are pleasant and eager to please, about the money transfer aspect and they say they are working to modernize the payment system – so be sure to clear this up before renting. To be fair, they are taking over from their ailing mother, who is likely more efficient as she normally handles the bookings.

There are several grocery stores close by and the marina a few miles north had several restaurants and a seaside atmosphere. All in all we enjoyed our stay there.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay! If you want to be oceanfront, see dolphins from your living room (or deck), and hear the waves throughout the unit, it won't get much better than this! We have been updating the units to incorporate a beach/seaside decor. We recently installed a keyless entry system and deposits are returned once we receive our cleaning report.

It is a short ride to San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Disneyland and of course Legoland.
