Charming Beach Cottage. You can hear the surf at night, outdoor shower for washing off after a day at the beach. Very short walk (even for kids) to the pier, local restaurants, movie theater and the train station. Great location to access all that San Diego and Orange County have to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Oceanside:

* We love Oceanside. It's a great location to travel both north and south to enjoy all that Southern California has to offer. Oceanside is a great beach community with so much to do on the beach, at the harbor and in town. We love taking the train down to San Diego for the day and enjoying the culture and entertainment.

The Unique Benefits at this House:

*Beach, Pier, restaurants all a very short walk away... even for kids. private patio in back for outdoor seating. Fruit trees in back yard. A true beach house. Great for family.

About Jeff and Adrienne Petersen

We love the beach, the weather and the laid back attitude of the beach community. Oceanside is our "home away from home." Our kids have grown up swimming, biking, learning to surf and playing in the sands and waves of Oceanside beach.

Jeff and Adrienne Petersen purchased this house in 2009

Why Jeff and Adrienne Petersen chose Townsite

This house is a quaint beach cottage. It's open and comfortable for our family. It's the perfect size and location for a family get-away. Close enough to walk to the beach, the down town, restaurants. We love to take the train to San Diego. It has been fun to watch Oceanside evolve into the perfect beach community.

What makes this house unique

Beach, Pier, restaurants all a very short walk away... even for kids. private patio in back for outdoor seating. The gated yard makes this house ideal for pets and privacy. A true beach house. Great for family or a quiet retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was wonderful! The kids loved the beach and though it was so cool to have an outdoor shower. The patio was my favorite place to hang out in the evening. -the town is cute and so many places to walk to for dinner.



Thanks for your hospitality - the cottage had everything we needed.

Oceanside

  • 3 of 5

The location is amazing and size of house was great. We were disappointed with the cleanliness of the house. We had to wash all dishes before using. The kitchenware needs to be upgraded along with couches and bedding.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We always stay at the Springhill Suites but decided to get this house instead. A block from the ocean and a block from restaurants, it worked out great. We had one issue and the owner was there 15 min later to fix.

Perfect location and enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this location. It was very close to the beach, pier and downtown Oceanside. Our favorite places to eat were Knockout Pizza, That Boy Good, Petite Madeline Bakery, and Pho Oceanside (short drive to Oceanside Blvd).

The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. We had one small request to the owner during our stay and they were very quick to accommodate the request from us.

The home was easy to keep clean (100% tile floors) and my dog was agreeable with the synthetic lawn out front (very convenient with the fenced yard for 2am wake-up calls).

Our only frustration was with the master bathroom. Since it was a pedestal sink, there was no place to put any of our items to get ready and the small wall mirror is placed on the wall for someone at least 5'8" (I am 5'4")

We highly recommend this place and have already made reservations to come back in the Fall.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back in the Fall. I am not sure there are any options for the mirror in the master bathroom but thank you for bringing that to our attention.
