About Jim & Kerri Desmond

My husband and I live about 12 miles inland from the North Coast Village. We work hard to keep the condo in excellent condition; we continually update the decor, replenish the linens, clean the carpets twice yearly, and deep clean the condo every three months. We have been managing our property for over 12 years and take pride in having a clean, functional, family-friendly condo.

Jim & Kerri Desmond purchased this condo in 2000

Why Jim & Kerri Desmond chose Oceanside

When growing up in inland San Diego my family spent summers going to the beach. I always dreamed of owning a property along the waterfront. As young adults my husband and I would ride bikes along the Oceanside strand where we admired The North Coast Village complex. When we had the opportunity, we bought this incredible oceanfront condo at North Coast Village because of the beautiful grounds, the complex amenities, and the expansive beach. It is the perfect family vacation spot or couples get-away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the condo...we loved waking up every morning to the sound of the ocean and the beach. We loved playing board games in the condo and boogie boarding outside of it! We enjoyed lighting the fireplace at night and watching movies while listening to the ocean. The condo had everything we needed and the beds were comfortable. There were plenty of blankets and towels and lots of toys for the beach. We can't wait to come back!

Best Beach Rental Experience Out There

  • 5 of 5

Here's the thing. When you find the best plumber, best service at a restaurant, or best deal at a car dealership, you stick with them. My family just completed our 16th or 17th (we lost count) summer renting this beautiful place from Jim and Kerri. You will not find a better or closer ocean view anywhere. And that is a fact. Cozy and warm on the inside, and they make upgrades to the place every single year. The complex feels more like a resort and has never looked better. Flowers, and neatly groomed trees and bushes throughout the place. A huge Koi pond and feeding area is as fun for adults as it is for the kids. The pool is huge and there are multiple jacuzzis within the overall campus. lots more than I can mention but clean clean clean! If you like a clean and scenic vacation spot, this is the place. Don't miss the local street fair that takes place each Thursday night. Multicultural food, cool beach music, and vendor booths with everything from crafts to the latest tech gadgets. We never get sick of this place and probably never will. Jim and Kerri's whole approach is to make sure that you have the best beach vacation possible, and we appreciate that very much because they always deliver on that. Just telling it like it is! Be ready for a great week!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at Kerri and Jim's condo. The location can't be beat! You step out the door onto the balcony and the ocean is right there! Being able to hear the waves crashing in was wonderful and the sunsets every night are spectacular!

The condo comes with everything that you would need and is very clean. The kitchen is fully stocked, the beds are comfortable, and there's free WI-FI. There is a large smart TV in the living room with Netflix and a smaller TV in each of the bedrooms. The grounds are very well maintained and there is a large pool and hot tub just steps away.

Kerri was great to work with and made sure that I had everything that I needed. I will definitely return!

Great spot right at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We (2 Adults, 2 teens) had a very nice stay. You really can't stay any closer to the water. The apartment was clean and well-maintained. We appreciated the Boogie Boards and beach chairs that were there for our use. Also the kitchen was supplied with many of the little necessities that you hate to have to buy for a few days use (spices, olive oil, paper towels, etc...). I imagine this is somewhat variable so you might want to check what's there before heading to the store. The grounds, pool, and grill area were all very nice.

Several times we walked over to the Harbor area (10 minute casual walk) to eat at the restaurants there.

The owners were easy to work with and returned our deposit promptly.

We would stay there again and would recommend this condo without any concerns.

Go ahead, book it. You won't regret it!

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I fully enjoyed my stay in Kerri and Jim's condo on the beach! The view was second to none and the condo was beautifully appointed and very clean. It was quiet and relaxing. I loved falling asleep listening to the waves crash on the beach. I will definitely be back!

Perfect Oceanfront Condo...Fabulous Owners!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Kerri & Jim make it so comfortable with all of the goodies they stock it with: DVDs, free WiFi and NetFlix, boogie boards and beach chairs, board games, condiments and more (including a first aid kit, which came in handy when my husband got stung by a sting ray!). We were excited to see a number of dolphins cruising by a few mornings! The balcony is perfect! You can't get much closer to the ocean than this.

The unit is exactly as described and the pictures don't do it justice. Very clean, everything was in working order. Lots of pots, pans and tools for cooking. We visited my parents in LaJolla and brought back some lemons from their tree and we even found a manual juicer to make lemonade! Beds are comfortable; good shower always with hot water. They supply just about everything you need.

The complex is beautiful, safe, clean and well maintained. There is a good security presence but not imposing. Check in procedures run very smoothly. Parking is great. The people are very friendly and it's very peaceful. The harbor is a short walk with some good restaurants and shops. Easy access to gas stations, grocery stores, pharmacy, Walmart, etc.

Kerri is fantastic. She's very responsive and truly cares about her guests having a wonderful vacation. She contacted us a few weeks before our stay to let us know that annual beach dredging had run late this year and might be going on during our stay. She helped us consider all of our options and was honest about what she knew and what she didn't. It didn't end up affecting us, but we were impressed that she even told us. We had one little thing break while we were there and she immediately responded that she'd come fix it for the next guests (it didn't affect our stay at all). She followed up with us and returned our deposit within a week after our stay. Owners can make a huge difference in the quality of your stay and these guys are in the elite class! This condo is worth every penny! Thanks Kerri and Jim! We hope to return as this was our second visit to North Coast Village and this unit can't be beat!

Thank you for taking time to post a review and we hope you can stay with us again sometime soon! ~Kerri and Jim

Incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our vacation at this condo. It was clean, comfortable and was equipped with everything we could possibly need. The location and views were beautiful. We enjoyed walking to the pier and the harbor and our kids couldn't get enough of the beach and pool. We met some really sweet people while playing ping pong and using the community BBQ as well. We can't wait to stay again!
