Townsite Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms 2 full bathrooms sleeps 4+

Totally renovated beachfront upper, end unit cottage with amazing white water ocean, river, harbor and mountain views from living area and master bedroom. Two extra windows in the living area and a skylight in each bathroom give this cottage in North Coast Village lots of natural light (only found in the few end unit upper level cottages). The cottage's private entrance is only a few steps up from the luscious grounds, and you can leave the door open for more light and a nice ocean breeze. The kids can play on the beach or the yard next to cottage while you watch them while relaxing inside or on the deck. North Coast Village resort-like setting has 24/7 security with garage parking and every amenity including extensive tropical gardens, fitness center, putting green, table tennis, billiards, jacuzzi, beautiful heated pools, and laundry facilities . Boogie boards, beach toys, towels, and chairs for your use are included. Sit by the cozy fireplace, or on the deck to watch the sunset over the ocean, and enjoy the flickering harbor lights. Kitchen is fully equipped for eating in or take a leisurely walk to the restaurants and shops at the harbor. Yes, this cottage has everything, and we would love to have you as our guests!

About Michael O'Shea

Born and raised outside of Philadelphia, I moved to Southern California in 2007 because I loved the outdoors and surfing. I love staying at my cottage with the kids during the off-season when there aren't as many guests :) I live close to the cottage so I'm there a lot, and I can be there quickly if there is an issue during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We completely enjoyed our visit to your beautiful home. We will always remember & cherish our time hee. Fabulous sunsets every night, pelicans flying over us on the beach and hours of lounging on the beach. Thanks for having us.

Very good location, fantastic view

  • 4 of 5

We. a family of 4, have spent in the property a couple of days in August. The check-in process, location and views are the on the positive side of the apartment. The village itself is also very pleasant and the beach is fantastic. However there is a space for improvement in cleanness of the place, especially in those parts not visible at first sight also the small kitchen equipment could be in a bit better shape. Nevertheless we have been happy in the apartment and spent some fantastic time.

Great location with ocean views, plenty of room, nice kitchen facilities and owner very responsive

  • 5 of 5

Pros: This property has some real security entrance and a defined parking place. Even the pool area is secure, there is a gym and laundry within the complex. A nice walk to the pier and the landscaping of the entire complex is very nice. The owner provided really everything needed for beach with sand toys, towels and even boogie boards. Shopping nearby and the sunsets from the balcony were great. The condo is roomy and has its own entrance from the ground. Everything worked well. It was especially nice that every question that I emailed the owner he was quick to give a response. My three year old granddaughter enjoyed all the trains going by and it did not interfere with sleep. Feeding the fish from a bridge within the complex was also a lot of fun. Checking in was easy and everyone we met was friendly and helpful.

Cons: Most of the oceanfront condos in the area do not have air conditioning. Fans were provided but it was very hot while we were there in early August. It did not really cool down in the evening and this made sleep slightly difficult for 2/4 of us..

Great unit in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We have found our new favorite vacation spot! Very clean and welcoming with all amenities of home we could want and need. This cozy cottage felt like our own little beach house. The property is gated and immaculate and has a family feel - very safe and friendly. Just a short walk to the beach, with chairs, boogie boards, beach toys, umbrella and more provided. The check in process was great, with covered parking. Large laundry facilities, game rooms, beautiful community pool and jacuzzi. We want to get back as soon as we can. Thanks Michael for a vacation our family will talk about for years.

Excellent family choice

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 was very comfortable in this unit. The kitchen was well equipped. The balcony offered excellent views of the beach and harbor. Very short, easy walk to beach. We also had a nice, easy walk along the beach to the pier. We ate at an excellent restaurant on the harbor, another easy walk 9ver the bridge. Easy check in/check out. The only con would be some noise from the street. It never really bothered us but you could hear the occasional car and foot traffic. No problem with noise from other units. This is definitely a place we would stay again!

Outstanding and Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL month's stay in this Oceanside property. The highest of the many highlights was the owner's attention to our needs. Michael was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient in handling all of our questions and concerns. The unit itself was quite spacious and well furnished. We have stayed in many other vacation condos with much higher rents for much poorer quality. With the ocean right outside our door and the property itself beautifully landscaped, the location was heavenly. Look no further than this for an ideal holiday exerience wth a most caring owner. And, believe me, we are very picky and usually dole out compliments sparingly!

Nice Location For Spending Christmas

  • 5 of 5

This property is a 2BR/2Bath property in NCV with nice water views as advertised. Owner was very helpful ahead of our visit so we pretty much had everything we needed. The NCV was nicely decorated for Christmas and all the lights made for a very enjoyable time here. The proximity to Oceanside, CA was wonderful meaning you could walk to town on the boardwalk and not worry about driving and finding a place to park. You felt safe walking at anytime of day on the boardwalk so that was a true positive. Oceanside had some good eateries, a movie theater and the Pier. The location to Interstate-5 and San Diego was fairly easy with most places within 30-40 minutes. The condo was fully equipped however a couple of recommendations would include: 1) Have cleaning team do a better job dusting around windows/ shutters 2) replace all the rusted tracks for sliding doors and windows since they were very bothersome to work 3) supply more ergonomically-friendly silverware instead of the heavy stuff supplied and 4) supply a better quality music sound system. Finally, may want to consider closing up Master bathroom area from master bedroom for more privacy and dual usage. Other than that, it was a nice property.
