Deluxe 1BR/1BA Cottage Condo... the very best location...newly remodeled.!

Our 1-BR condo is a remodeled deluxe 'Cottage' unit in North Coast Village. This means that you can access our place from the outdoors...front or back. There are no stairs to climb or interior halls to walk through. We sit on the ground floor on a greenbelt. You will have the feeling of a spacious semi-private backyard sitting on the beach. We have a great 180 degree UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW!. Top photo: taken from our patio. You can hear the waves and watch the surfers from our patio. We have the sunset view. Just in front of us is the Estuary (where the river meets the ocean and the birds nest in sanctuary) and to the right of us the Harbor is visible. Our sliding glass door is keyed so you can walk out your door and go right to the beach. We sit directly on the sand! Oceanside boasts some of the finest white sandy beaches in Southern California with great surfing and swimming areas. (To continue...see 'further details.')

The Beach is great for taking walks! Beach chairs and towels are provided. We have a nice patio set on our deck as we spend most of our time there from sun up to sunset. You'll enjoy barbecuing outside and toasting the end of the day while you watch the sun go down over the ocean. Inside our Vacation Home: photos show the living room and bar area and our kitchen. Our newly remodeled 1-bdrm condo is smoke-free and sleeps 4. The living room has a a fireplace, queen size sofa bed and swivel chairs. We also have a nice dining room set in a separate area. Everything is new and fresh. We have mirrors and art throughout. There are 2 new flat screen TVs(with cable),, DVD, CD, wireless internet, and 2 phones.

Our bathroom and vanity areas are separated from each other for maximum usability. Our linens are new.

We have been told by several that this is the best one bedroom unit in North Coast Village. They were referring to the location and the decor. We have created a special indoor/outdoor environment. Our cottage condo is truly 'a great escape'. Contact us for more information.

Dear Joyce and Bob and Mike,

We enjoyed staying in your lovely condo in Jan. 2009 and would like to return for Feb. 2010. The view is wonderful and the beach perfect! There were no crowds and the weather was perfect. Most days we spent walking the beach, splashing along in bare feet, sitting on the beach chairs reading and just watching the waves. So peaceful and restful…..a true vacation! It felt perfectly safe to walk downtown to browse, go to a movie or to visit the library. We also loved the Farmer’s Market! There are great places to eat………..all of them very nearby. All-in-all we could not have asked for a nicer get-away ……thanks for the cozy spot!!!

Sincerely, Bob and Donna

Great Unit at a Great Complex

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week on the beach with my parents and grandchildren, in a great unit. Love the location of this unit and it was perfect for us. The unit was exactly as advertised and only had one issue with the plumbing. The owners were very responsive and resolved quickly. We will be coming back next year and can't wait!! Thank you Bob and Joyce for allowing us to stay in your beach home.

Fabulous condo and personal attention from the owners

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to E-3 and as always it exceeds expectations. The unit is equipped with all the amenities anyone could ask for and the view from the living room and patio is beyond relaxing. We have stayed at various VRBO units across the US and this is by far one of the nicest. You couldn't ask for nicer people to rent from, always personable and helpful. Thanks!

The title says it all

  • 5 of 5

The condo fit perfectly our family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We usually travel with an inflatable mattress which we managed to over inflate this time and break it and the condo has a very good quality one that helped a lot.

Everything else is exactly as others have said , we liked it so much that we booked it again when we come back at North Coast Village.

Joyce & Bob-

We want to thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful condo! We've been coming to NCV for many years now (17 or 18?) ...and we love your E-3 unit! You've done a fabulous job at decorating & supplying renters with everything they'd need. Also, the whole rental process was easier than most I've had. Joyce , you were so great at returning my emails/calls quickly and were always so friendly and gracious. Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality & we will definitely call you again!

About Joyce & Bob Simpson

Owned by Bob & Joyce Simpson since 1989. We live an hour north of Oceanside and have designed our condo as a welcome retreat. We go and visit whenever we don't have rentals and we take good care of it. As marriage & family therapists, we know the value of getting-away to a peaceful setting.We have vacationed in Hawaii many times and when we are at the beach in Oceanside, it feels like a little bit of Hawaii. We plug in our i-phones and play soft music (or Hawaiian music) and let the sound of the waves and the beautiful sunsets over the water do the rest to soothe our souls. Of course, we also enjoy our condo when we can bring our grandchildren down there and that creates an entirely different feel. There is so much to do with kids from ocean sports to kite flying, to fishing to biking and, of course eating out! Lots of fun activities for all ages!

Joyce & Bob Simpson purchased this condo in 1989

Why Joyce & Bob Simpson chose Townsite

Great beach...feels like Hawaii! Peaceful, quiet & relaxing! Easy access to the beach.

Indoor / outdoor living. I enjoy watching the birds fly over from the estuary. There is no one in front of us. It feels very private. Nice yard and then there is the beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks, Joyce!

My week was very relaxing, and the weather was perfect. I could not think of anything you need to do or change that would improve the stay. Your condo was very comfortable and had everything I needed.

Best regards- Barbara
