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!

Perfect location and very comfortable.
Quaint space to enjoy the beach.
Quiet but close to everything you need. Nice neighborhood, everyone was very friendly.
Great stay on the beach!
Overall this was a wonderful property - especially having private sand as well as steps right down to the beach and ocean. We occupied unit C (sand level) and the interior was a great size for just the two of us. Because of this location, you are more secluded from lots of tourist traffic on the beach. There are great places you can walk to from the unit. The Buccaneer Cafe a few blocks south had great breakfast, and the pier about a mile to north is a fun location. We had great access to Carlsbad and San Diego with the train station not far away.
There were a few minor things that guests should be aware of. (1) You can hear guests walking on the floor above - we particularly noticed running children. (2) at low tide the beach is expansive, but at high tide, the waves crash against the stairs so time near the waves is limited to mid-to-low tides. We still loved the crashing waves agains the rocks, and you still have the private sand yard. (3) Parking is restricted on Monday mornings - be aware that these times are different based on the side of the street (which mistake we made assuming the time was the same on both sides resulting in a parking citation). (4) In our case, previous tenants had apparently stored fish in the refrigerator/freezer and even though it was very clean we had to make an effort to eliminate the odor.
Despite these issues, our time was outstanding and we would definitely stay here again. The unit was very clean, charming, and just what we were hoping for.
A big thanks to the owners for providing an oasis on the beach that we sorely needed.
Very good on all levels.
Easy and straightforward communication with Kelly. As advertised- so wonderful to walk out the door and be on the beach!
It is a short ride to San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Disneyland and of course Legoland.
