Why John Swanson chose Oceanside

The ocean views here are superior and, the access to all that downtown has to offer can't be beat. Close enough to walk to, yet out of the high traffic area. The beaches feature summer staffed lifeguard stands, fire pits, playground areas, longest California pier, beautiful grassy areas, clean public bathrooms, shower areas and plenty of sidewalk stands that sell or rent everything from ice-cream to bicycles. You have a wide selection of dinining, night life, shopping, and things to do, all within walking distance. If you want to explore further, you have commuter trains to get you going in any direction.This property has something for all ages, and is ideal for generational families considering there is a master suite on the ground floor level. Come enjoy the Booming area of Oceanside and spoil yourself with the comforts, amenities, service, and great location that the Oceanside Dolphin Villa has to offer. You won't regret it!

What makes this house unique

This location is more than ideal, it is perfect for the whole family. You have just about everything you could want or ask for within walking distance. The best beach is literally across the street and down some steps, the pier is really close by, you have the amphitheater to enjoy all of the performing arts and special events, then there's restaurants galore with every type of cuisine from take out to fine dining. You can walk to night life, breweries, shopping, ice cream, movie theater, surf museum, and so much more. If this isn't enough for you,muumuu on the commuter train inland or go up or down the coast to explore more. This vacation location has something for every age, and every lifestyle which makes it the perfect home spot. If you want to see all of the major theme parks, you are freeway close and can be at any of them within an hour or so. Some are really close like Legoland , wild amnimal park, San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Disneyland, and a myriad of Southern California attractions.

Beautiful house with great views

  • 5 of 5

The house is as advertised - very comfortable and a lovely high-end home. Four generations of our family stayed there (2 to 90 years old) and the layout of the house worked well for all of us. Especially liked the location near the beach. Less than a block to walk to the beach. Very nice beach and there is a playground area for the little kids. Loved being on the roof at night enjoying the great views. Wonderful place that we hope to come back to in the future.

An outstanding stay! Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked this property, we were treated so well. We were welcomed, got extra information, and a personal message from the owner. We can't wait to stay in the Hawaii properties by the same owner, as everything was just perfect. The beach house is the most beautiful in the area - and the upper deck with the outdoor fireplace and surrounding rope lighting made us not want to go out. We stayed in and cooked in the beautiful kitchen and had a great time on the patio. The house is huge - much bigger than we needed for 6 people - but it was so nice to explore and have the beautiful decks to sit on and enjoy the waves. They have thought of everything, from beach chairs to hang out by the ocean... to a new volleyball so we could play a little. There is really everything you need here (even a kids room with toys and a play pen).

I will be back with a new group of friends to celebrate the coming of summer.

Thank you so much - John and Tracy - for making our stay so memorable.

You would have 10 stars if I could give them to you!

Great family Spring Break Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a large group, six adults and five children ages 11-17, but there was plenty of room for everyone. By far everyone's favorite place in the house was the rooftop, with the hot tub, a gas grill a, gas fire pit and plenty of seating. We cooked out several times and enjoyed star gazing one evening when the sky was super clear. We really appreciated having spices, aluminum foil paper towels coffee filters and plastic wrap already in the kitchen. And extra toilet paper in the bathroom was a nice touch! And beach towrls (lots of them!) The house needs some TLC, especially the window blinds and windows that don't always open/close completely, but other than that, it was a great location, right across the street from the beach, and walking distance to restaurants and shops. Tracy was especially helpful with recommended things to do and making arrangements for us! Highly recommend this property! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is always appreciated when my guests take the time to inform us of any issues needing attention. This beautiful beach home requires year-round maintenance, being that it's so close to the ocean. It is in essence like caring for a boat, but this is a minor trade-off for being so close to the water. The maintenance need referenced has now been corrected. I'm pleased to hear that the many extras provided by the property were appreciated. This property is marketed as a true home away from home, so there are several items we stock, along with items that former guests have passed on. It has always been our goal to offer a superior property paired with excellent customer service, and we are always trying to improve by listening to our guests and asking ourselves what can we do to improve the overall guest stay. Our vision and goals are made evident when you meet your Host Tracy. She is focused on one thing - making sure the guest is taken care of and that their stay is enjoyable. Tracy won't just open the door for you, she will unlock an experience that will have you wanting to return. You can expect suggestions on places to dine, things to do, and places to see. These suggestions are made based on interaction with each guest and figuring out their interests and goals during their stay. We are set apart not just by property and location, but by service. Tracy will do things such as grocery shop prior to your arrival to have everything ready for you upon check in if you so desire. This is done complimentary by Tracy and demonstrates her level of service and appreciation for your business. As you can see, staying at the Oceanside Dolphin Villa is more than a vacation, it's an experience!

Oceanside Dreaming

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate, kitchen top of the line, 3rd roof deck was the highlight of our trip. Boys trip, spent BBQing upstairs, playing dominoes and dice in the sun. What a view. Walking distance to tons of Restaurants and Bars. Had fun at the local Bowling Alley. Tracy took care of us and was just a text away from a question. We'll be back.

PERFECT GETAWAY.. AWESOME HOSTS!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a last minute perfect place to celebrate our Baby's 1 y/o Birthday and we are so thankful and lucky to have found this place!!!! We can't ask for anything more!!!! The property managers were both awesome and verryyy accomodating and the house was everything we could ever ask for.. We love the rooftop and the master's bedroom view, we love how our inlaws had their own private casita's, downstairs bedroom and kids room complete with a pack n play, lots of toys and even airbeds!! Kitchen pantry was stocked with basic necessities.. Kitchen/bathrooms were immaculate with everything you'll ever need.. It's like your every need was thought of.. All you need really is to bring yourself and your clothes.. The beach is just a few steps from the house, a minute walk and you'll reach the stairway to the beach, we loved being able to jog every morning and enjoy the fresh air and sound of the ocean waves.. The train station is just walking distance and so are restaurants and markets.. We're still reminiscing our stay upto now and our 3y/o daughter keeps on saying she misses the beach house.. As much as I want to keep it to ourselves.. This is really the best property in that strip, it beats every single house that I saw each time I jogged around the area.. So if you're looking for a perfect getaway in oceanside, look no further.. This is the best one!!! Also, you can't get it any better by having two great property managers who are very accomodating and are just a call away.. Thank you very much John and Tracy for the best vrbo experience we've ever had!!!! Looking forward to coming back soon!!!!!!

Favorite 'locals' surf spot, walking distance to pier, restaurants, shopping, night life, ice cream, yogurt, sushi, movie theater, breweries, and the list goes on. If you can't find what you want locally, you are only a short walk to the commuter train to take you inland or into San Diego. This location offers everything and lacks nothing. Book your reservation today, you won't regret it.
