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.

Luxury, convenience, and beauty made for the perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at his beautiful and luxurious home! We loved how close it was to the beach and felt it was the best house in the neighborhood! It had it's own outside shower for rinsing after the beach which was really nice and convenient. The kitchen is fabulous with everything you could ever need. Each bedroom was great, and comfortable with a lot of room. We loved the top rooftop deck! The hot tub, bbq, and firepit made the perfect gathering place for the evenings - while watching the amazing view of the sunset! We enjoy running in the morning and found running trails nearby that were fun. Everything was provided - chairs, umbrellas, boards, and toys for the beach, paper products, towels, fantastic laundry room complete with laundry soap and dryer sheets. Tracy went the extra mile to make sure everything was just right. The ocean breeze gently blowing through the house was so nice. It is the perfect family and extended family getaway - spacious, beautiful, clean and lovely. The owners have really gone the extra mile to make this a fantastic place to make great memories! We will definitely be back!

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

We used this wonderful home for a family vacation with adults and children and could not have been happier! The setting is breath taking. We are missing the sunsets from the roof top deck. This place has everything needed for a great time and the home was in great condition with every amenity working perfectly. The manger, Tracy is wonderful to work with. We are sure to use this home again.

Beautiful, great location, and a delightful, responsive, friendly property manager

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time! Tracy was the best in terms of responsiveness, etc, and the location can't be beat. The house was fully equipped, even with outdoor shower, and that was really helpful for the kids! The rooftop deck was a big hit and where we spent most of our time.

The only issue was that while it slept 8 adults (plus the kids room), one bedroom was enormous, two were good-sized, and one was a pull-out couch that was in the living room of the casita, so that the adults in one of the bedrooms had to walk through it to get to the main house. It would have been nice to have this a bit more clear in the house description.

Otherwise, perfect!

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.

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.
