About Tammy Gildersleeve

We've lived in the area for 35 years, and managed local property for over 25 years. It has always been our dream to own a property right on the ocean. We love that we are able to make it possible for so many others to experience a beautiful, relaxing stay at the beach.

Tammy Gildersleeve purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Tammy Gildersleeve chose Oceanside

The Ocean View is amazing! We are constantly in awe. We love just watching the beauty of the waves hitting the sand RIGHT in front of us. You can't beat waking up to the sound of the sea and the view of the Pacific.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is as close to the beach as you can get. Enjoy walking, jogging or biking along the Strand to the Oceanside Pier or harbor for fishing or dining (bike rentals at the pier and Alan's bike shop in town.). We are convenient to plenty of great restaurants. We are an easy drive to San Diego's world famous Zoo, the Safari Wild Animal Park, Sea World, Legoland, outlet mall shopping and Disneyland. Walk to the weekly Thursday farmer's market and sunset market with unique vendors, great food and live music is great fun. Hop the train ( 5 minutes walk) for a visit to Old Town or downtown San Diego.

Great place for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had a wonderful time. The unit is clean and has everything we needed for our stay. Just steps from the beach for my mother and I, swimming, fishing, skateboarding for the grandkids, and relaxing in the sun for my daughter! We will definitely go back.

Awesome location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in the 3 Bedroom unit with my family (2 adults, 5 kids). We had a great stay. Unit is a basic place, easy to get to and it is literally steps from the beach. It was so nice to be able to look right out the door and see the ocean right there. Plenty of beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, etc., for the whole family. There are two playgrounds just up from the house (one about 2 blocks away and the other near the pier) which the kids loved. Keep an eye on the tide schedules. When it is high tide, the water is right up to the rocks across from the property. No big deal, just walk a little up the beach towards the pier to get to sand again. Definitely would suggest water shoes, since there are a lot of little rocks and pebbles that wash up on the beach. It can be rough walking on them without shoes. Overall, it is hard to beat the location for this place.

Clean, fully equipped kitchen, nice linens and towels

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a great location. Close to the shops and the pier. We walked everywhere. There were alot of rocks right in front of the place but just a little ways down the beach it was cleared of rocks. This I guess is up to the tides and did change through out our stay. Tammy was great to work with as we were able to check in a little earlier than usual. Thanks so much for this Estella, also Ryan was very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful stay at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in the 3 bedroom downstairs unit for 6 days. It was a perfect vacation. The place has everything you need to be comfortable and then some. We were impressed with the quantity of boogie boards, skim boards and beach toys available. There were plenty of extra towels also for the beach and for showers. Since there is only 1 bathroom the use go towel bars in the bedrooms was an excellent solution to keeping track of whose towel is whose and getting them dry. We loved sitting out after being at the beach and enjoying the patio, the chairs, especially the rocking chair and the picnic table for dinner. Ocean view from two front bedrooms, kitchen and patio. We had one parking space on site and a parking pass for up the street. Stairs lead you right to them. We loved our stay so much we have already booked again for next summer. We also have recommended the place to friends. You can't get closer to the beach then a one way street dividing you.
