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!

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!

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!

Beautiful space that was perfect for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It was just like the pictures - watched surfers and sunsets from our balcony, steps from the beach and pool and short walk to restaurants and pier. Clean, comfortable and a great place to stay to explore San Diego. Would go back anytime!

Wonderful Place to Stay - Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

This Condo worked out very nicely for our stay. The view was amazing - and you really are right on the water. We woke up watching surfers every morning and we watched the sunset from the balcony just about every night. We even saw dolphin from the balcony a few times. The condo itself was clean and organized with plenty of supplies for cooking and lots of pillows and linens. The beds were comfortable - even the futon we used a few nights. What made the stay really nice were some of the little things like paper products (even Kleenex), plenty of soap (hand, laundry and dishwasher), spices in the cupboard and condiments in the fridge - very nice not to have to buy all that!

There were lots of DVDs and movies - watching original Hawaii Five-O episodes at night was hilarious. The owner was good about answering questions beforehand and the reservation was easy. The condo really felt like "our home" from the time we arrived. We are already making plans to come back in the summer for a week and definitely plan to stay here again.

Nice place on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for nine nights (me, wife and two kids age 11 & 14) and are pleased both with the condo and the surroundings. The condo was nice and fully stocked with both kitchen equipment and beachtoys for the kids. Short walk to the nice beach was very appreciated. This was our first stay i Calfornia and this condo was just perfect for the four of us. The total experience was "good", the condo "average" mainly because there were some wear that should be taken care of. The complex itself was very tidy and well kept. We absolutely recomend it!

Great Location - Very Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in this condo. The condo is located right on the water and the view is amazing! There were six of us - 3 adults 3 kids and there was plenty of room. The kids loved all the beach toys, the mini-putting green, and the ping pong tables. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and there were plenty of towels, pillows, and blankets. The complex has a large pool area and jacuzzi we used almost every night. We also cooked on the nearby BBQs several times which worked out really great. It was warm during our stay but we opened the back sliding door and turned on a couple of fans and the ocean breeze kept the condo cool. There are restaurants at the harbor to walk to and we loved walking on the beach down to the pier every morning. The owner was easy to work with and the unit was clean and well maintained. We are already planning our next stay!
