Townsite House Rental Photos and Description

Sandy Beachfront Location, Easy walk to Food and Fun, Private Beach Bonfure Ring

Please call for our Last Minute Specials.

This popular Oceanside beach vacation rental is known for its amazing beachfront location and beachfront back yard. The fun beach bungalow features a stunning and rare private beach backyard with a private sand area and bonfire ring. The private sand and beachfront lawn is a perfect spot for families; where during the day kids will be making sandcastles on the private beach and in the evening they will make s'mores over the bon fire. The beach bungalow is decorated in a fun "beach meets mid century modern vibe" with new furniture, new beds, fresh linens, and a new kitchen. There’s no sprawling spaces or luxury appointments hidden in this beachfront bungalow, but its vibe and beachfront location make it a popular choice for carefree fun on the beach. The beach bungalow style ( two self contained levels) features three bedrooms with five queen beds and one sleeper sofa and will sleep a total of 12 people. You share none of the property with other renters because this is not a condo. There is no street or public sidewalk between the home and Pacific Ocean. The beach really is your backyard! The yard itself is, no doubt, the best beachfront yard and location in the city. Kids can easily and safely run back and forth from the water to the house. It is also located in a perfect spot to walk to restaurants, movies, ice cream shops and gastro pubs. Bring your beach cruisers too.

When you are not out on the beach, the beach house is a perfect getaway. The home is fun, fresh and comes with everything you will need on your vacation. Enjoy massive beach and ocean views from the living, dining and kitchen areas.

Layout: As you enter the main home from the street, you are greeted by stunning ocean views. The new kitchen with white cabinets and granite counter tops is the first area you see when you enter the beach house. Then, you will walk into the living and dining areas. Again, the ocean views from this area is magnificent. The furniture and decor are modern and new. Also, on this floor, are two bedrooms, each with two queen beds. Between both bedrooms is an updated bathroom with tumbled marble floors and shower. This main level easily sleeps 8 people. To reach the lower level, just go a few outside steps down to the sand level and you will find a secret treat, The Beach Suite. Facing the beach, this private lower level features an ocean view bedroom with a queen bed. You can enjoy white water views without lifting your head from the pillow! In addition, there is a sitting room with a queen sleeper sofa, a kitchenette and a bathroom. The Beach Suite sleeps 4 people. It is a great option for grandparents or when you are traveling with friends and family, yet still want a bit of privacy. It is also perfect for when you are spending a full day out on the beach and want a beach level kitchen, refrigerator and bathroom without having to leave the beach area.

This San Diego beach rental and beach front vacation rental is all close to major San Diego attractions and theme-parks including Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Wild Animal Park, San Diego Sea World, San Diego Balboa Park, Coronado, San Diego, the Downtown San Diego Gas-lamp district, and so much more! If you want to take a drive north, you can visit the quaint coastal towns of San Clemente California , Laguna Beach, California and Newport Beach California, or spend the day at Disneyland California, Knotts Berry Farm, or Universal Studios! If you are a golfer, there are some world famous San Diego Golf Courses, or rent a bicycle and take an adventure on one of the Bike Paths in San Diego, or try your surf skills with a Surfing Lesson!

About Kim Dillon

We raised our family on the beach and love family time on the beach.

Why Kim Dillon chose Oceanside

This home is ON the beach with plenty of sand right in front. There is no street or sidewalk to cross to get to the beach. You have a private beach and fire ring. Its a fun walk to all the great places to eat. We do allow small intimate beach weddings at this location

What makes this house unique

You do not share any of the property with other rentals or renters. The private beachfront lawn and private bon fire pit in the sand are very popular. Many of our guest have intimate beach weddings during their stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at the beach house. We had never booked online before and were honestly a bit worried if the house and beach would be anything like the photos. We are beyond happy to report its just like the pictures, only even better! The kids loved both the private beach and the grass to play on. Now they want to have bonfires in our backyard!

True beach living!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this property is amazing and offers true beach living! Adorably decorated in a mid-century modern beach style. Layout was perfect for us, we put our teen/early twenties girls upstairs and my husband and I had the privacy of the lower quarters. Windows open all the time to enjoy the ocean breezes and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks. You are so close to the water you won't even have to salt the rim of your margarita glass...the ocean will provide the salt for you :) We loved barbecuing and eating outside, the beach fire pit and s'mores at night and our own private beach to soak up the sun...not to mention the beautiful, unobstructed sunset views.

Easy walk to the Farmer's market in Oceanside on Thursdays and a 5 minute (or less) drive to Carlsbad.

Beautiful Oceanfront Home

  • 5 of 5

I am from Virginia and we came to California for my daughter's wedding. We stayed at this incredible beach house. The house was immaculate and the location incredible! There were 12 family members staying and there was plenty of room for us all. I can't say enough wonderful things about the owner Kim, she was wonderful!!!! We had our own beach and a wonderful grass area to play and play we did! There are a lot of nearby attractions, but we stayed at the house because it was Paradise. It was the most relaxing vacation I have ever had. We plan on staying here at least a couple of times of year when visiting California! It was fun waking up to the dolphins and the surfers. I sat in the sand for a week and didn't move, there was no need to! Out of 5 stars I would give it 100 stars!!! It was amazing and I recommend anyone needing a place to stay in California to get this house!!! The property is incredible and I made memories that will last a life time! Susie Hall

Just a wonderful stay at the beach, again

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here many times and just love it. It really has the prettiest beachfront location of any beach house in Oceanside or San Diego. We love getting our sun time out on the lawn but it has sand to use too. You can walk or ride a beach bike to anything you want to do. Its nice when you arrive to a place thats just like the pictures but even better.

Honeymoon vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had our wedding here on this property and rented the house out for a week as our honeymoon. The owner/coordinator has a cheerful disposition and was very kind and resourceful. Our wedding could not have been more perfect! I would recommend any couple or family to stay here for a few reasons: the house itself is updated and very cute and cozy, the location is perfect; it's easy to get to anything plus you can walk all the way down the beach from the property and back, and the quality of beach you get is so perfect. It's clean, laid back, mostly intimate and very relaxing. Our experience was incredible and I would come back with my family for a vacation anytime!

Beautiful place for a wedding!

  • 5 of 5

My now husband and I picked this property so that we could have an intimate beach wedding and we were not disappointed. The property is beautiful and the owner Kim was awesome. Our wedding turned out well and we would consider returning to this property for another week someday.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, very nicely furnished. Beds were comfortable. We used the grill on Mother's Day, we had one of the best BBQs on record. The weather was great. Everything was ready for use. Our family had a great time hanging out on this beachfront property. The property manager is super helpful and very nice. We had the best time! We can't wait to come back next year.
