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 Oceanside

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.

Best location in town

  • 4 of 5

A very well located, comfortable house for two couples or family. We enjoyed the grill often and loved the peace of the back yard. Comfy bed, modern bathroom, small one person kitchen and plenty of living space. We hope to return soon.

Great owners and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We needed to contact the owners while we were occupying the home about a couple of things and they were very responsive and took care of the issues at a time that was convenient for us. The home is comfortable and an easy walk to the beach and numerous local area eateries. We would definitely stay in this home again should a trip to the area arise.
