About the property

Four bedrooms, New Kitchen, New bathrooms, Plenty of Sand and Private Beach

This very popular and fun 4 bedroom/2 ba true beachfront cottage is perfect when you want to be ON the beach, not just near the beach. It was just remodeled and redecorated in Jan 2017 and has perhaps the best beachfront location in the entire city of Oceanside and perhaps all of San Diego with its impressive private beach backyard, beachfront lawn and beach bonfire ring. It even has central A/C!

During the day, you will be on your private beach and in the evening you will enjoy magnificent sunsets sitting around your private beach bon fire. You will love using the BBQ, cooking hotdogs and hamburgers while watching the dolphins jump and play right in front of the house.

The beachfront cottage features true central air conditioning ( not the portable units so many rentals claim to be A/C), a brand new kitchen with white cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless appliances and wonderful ocean and beach views. The light filled family room has simply stunning beach views from the massive picture windows. Bedroom number one features a queen bed, flat screen TV and is on the main level. Bedroom number two has two queen beds and a flat screen TV. Bedroom number three, has a queen bed, flat screen and is on the Beach level and features huge Ocean Views and direct beach access. Bedroom number four has a queen bed, and also has ocean views, TV and its own door for direct beach access! There is a sleeper sofa in the living room when you need to sleep up to 12 people.

This home is located on a very calm, private, family friendly and safe beach. You always have plenty of sand on your private beach. This is not a condo and is away from the crowded strand and the 800 and 900 blocks of So Pacific that are so dense with hundreds of renters. THE ENTIRE PROPERTY IS YOURS AND YOURS ALONE TO USE AND ENJOY. The house is an easy walk to the pier area with many fun restaurants for eating , gastro pubs, coffee shops, ice cream shops and even the movies is an easy walk. Bring your beach cruisers because we have miles of coastal trails and its always fun to ride to the shops and restaurants at nearby Oceanside Harbor. We are only 10 minutes from Legoland and an easy drive to Seaworld and San Diego Zoo.

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 the private yard for the kids to paly and make sandcastles. 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.

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. No mater what the public beach is like you always have a nice sandy beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just pack your clothes for this vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It has been our pleasure to stay at this lovely beach house on three separate occasions. Each visit surpasses the last. Our stay next year will be no exception, considering all of the exciting improvements that Kim has planned. We enjoyed the updated and remodeled kitchen during this trip but were also pleasantly surprised by bags of ice in the freezer in addition to paper towels, shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, dish detergent, toilet tissue, nice towels, beach towels and bed linens for the week. Anything that we don’t have to “haul” from AZ is a welcome addition. The backyard is a favorite feature for our four young grandchildren. The grass, private sand beach and easy access to the ocean are important to our family. We have looked all along the San Diego coast and nothing compares to this special place.

True beach living!

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

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
Verified Stay

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

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!
