About Neil Derry

We are a small family and live in Redlands, CA. We have an 11 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.

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

Wonderful Beach Bungalow Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this Oceanside Bungalow this week...I was a little worried about cooking Thanksgiving dinner at a strange house but they had absolutely everything I needed and our dinner turned out fabulous. The entire family had a wonderful week! Neil is great and his little bungalow is absolutely awesome!
