About Neil Derry

We are a small family and live in Redlands, CA. We have an 9 year old son and like to spend our free time away at places like our home in Oceanside.

I and my wife both work, I in public affairs and my wife in environmental planning. We like walks on the beach, biking, and hiking.

Neil Derry purchased this house in 2009

Why Neil Derry chose Oceanside

We chose to buy our home in Oceanside because of its location near the beach, the pier, and the downtown. We restored this home originally built in 1926, to maintain its character and also provide all the amenities we are used too.

We are located near Legoland, which also has a great aquarium and water park. We are also located near the train station which provides easy car-free access to San Diego including the Gas Lamp District, Old Town and stadiums for both Padres and Chargers games.

Oceanside has great beaches, surfing, restaurants, and entertainment...all within short walking distance from our home.

We are fortunate to have found our dream house.

What makes this house unique

As mentioned before, we are only minutes walk away from beautiful beaches and the downtown, including a movie theatre. We are far enough away though that we do not get ANY of the foot traffic.

Our favorite walk is down to Maui Waui's where we order coffee for ourselves and hot cocoa for our son.

There are no major streets between our home and the beach which makes it safe to bike with our son down to the Strand.

Comfortable and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for sharing your Oceanside home with us. Our family of 4 enjoyed it very much. We walked to the train to take to Old Town one day, walked to the beach (I would recommend you provide an onsite wagon or beach buggy to transport chairs/umbrella), sat out on the deck and just enjoyed our stay immensely. Our parents were able to utilize the onsite studio a couple nights too, worked out great for them. Thanks Neil for your hospitality.

A Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Neil's home. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals and the back deck was a wonderful place to have breakfast in the mornings. The beds were comfortable and the house was very roomy. We had some family over for hamburgers and hotdogs one evening. We were able to open the French doors to the porch and the back door to the patio so that everyone had plenty of room to sit and socialize. It was a short walk to the beach and the Farmer's Market. Neil was great to work with and the house was clean. I would recommend this house to anyone wishing a pleasant stay in Oceanside.
