John Swanson purchased this house in 2006

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.

What makes this house unique

This location also allows your vacation to be centrally located. You are freeway close to Disneyland, Knottsberry Farm, Legoland, San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, and all the myriad of Southern California attractions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house is too beautiful for words. We had a fabulous 12 vacation here. We were able to get around all of San Diego without a rental car because of the location of this house. I woud recommend this house to anyone that is looking for a luxury vacation experience.

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!

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.

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!!!!!!

Beautiful property, location, and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We have had one other VRBO experience before but This property totally raised the bar for other properties we book in the future. The house was well depicted and described.

The location was perfect with a great view of the ocean. We enjoyed hearing ocean waves at night through the window. Loved the his and hers bathrooms! The rooftop was just as described, perfect for relaxing in the mornings and at night.

When we arrived, Tracy provided us with a thoughtful gift basket and a tour of the house. We spoke on the phone before arrival where she offered to stock our fridge so we could start enjoying vacation asap. I was really impressed by the communication and concern of how our vacation was going throughout the week. It was clear she wanted the house to be perfect for us and asked if there were any suggestions for her (none! Everything was great!) She even left us Valentine's Day treats! Very sweet!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home to celebrate my in laws 50th wedding anniversary with the family. It was exactly as advertised! Comfortable, well stocked and even had beach towels, chairs and boogie boards to use. The property manager was beyond accommodating and professional. Always smiling and offered her services at any time. She treated us like friends of the family and that was well beyond my expectations! Kids loved the kid room and the house is very well maintained, in general. I would confidently recommend this home to anyone interested in getting what you pay for!
