RECENTLY REMODELED! Newly Remodeled home features electric "garage door" style kitchen windows, great for entertaining and capturing the ocean breeze. Kids loft keeps kids entertained and out of the way, with games and Playstation. This house is a home away from home! Enjoy all the privacy and comfort of home without the responsibilities. Situated between downtown Carlsbad and downtown Oceanside, and less than a mile from the beach, this home offers plenty of lounge space, a stocked kitchen, and a newly remodeled backyard to make your vacation with family and friends comfortable and fun-filled. Lounge under the shade of the gazebo, recline on the sunny deck, soak in the spa after a day at the beach, BBQ with friends and family, or ride the beach cruisers around town. When the beach front condos are too breezy and cold in the winter, the private backyard stays warm enough to sunbathe, even in January! This house offers something for everyone!
The 3 bedrooms/2 bath set-up offers flexible accommodations. Bedroom one features a comfortable pillow-top mattress queen bed, closet, television, and vanity. Bedroom two features a queen bed and futon pull-out couch. The office doubles as a bedroom with a pull-out couch, closet/dresser, and attached bathroom. The upstairs kids loft is carpeted with three fold-up futon cushions for extra sleeping. The living room / dining room features a 46' blu-ray television, piano, and two comfortable couches. The house features oak wood floors and unique pieces of art from around the world. The garage has foosball table, washer/dryer, and bikes and beach toys/chairs for your use. The house is sunny and well-ventilated, so it stays cool in the summer without the need for air conditioning.
South Oceanside is only a short walk or ride on the beach cruisers from the beach, markets, restaurants, bars, street fairs, farmers markets, and shopping. It is within a couple miles of movie theaters and the Oceanside harbor. Located just west of the I-5 and I-78 merge, it is a quick drive from golfing, hiking, mountain-biking, Legoland, and the Del Mar race track, and within an hour drive to Zoo/Wild Animal Park, Disneyland, Sea World, and Temecula wineries.

My husband and I grew up in San Diego and now live here with our dog and cat. Jason works in the offroad racing industry and I am a high school English teacher, which allows us time and flexibility to travel. While backpacking through countries throughout the world we love to sample new foods and cultures and collect local art.
Rachel Witt purchased this house in 2007
We will eventually move back here after we have more kids and need all the space. We love this home! For now we live a few miles away in a small studio. We love South Oceanside because it is a beach town with a funky, artistic culture. We are regular patrons of local restaurants and street fairs that promote local and organic products, and we think that any visitor will enjoy the warmth and good spirit of this area.
The backyard is our favorite spot in the house. It's a great place to entertain, BBQ, read, catch some sun, and relax in the hot tub. We also prefer the easy bike ride over the drive to all the local fun. We keep extra bikes on hand for when we have friends over.
This was a uniquely special Christmas due to a horrific tragedy we encountered in our family the day after Christmas last year.
So we decided to go off the radar for the holiday this year and get near the beach.
Your home was a perfect fit for us and our adult children to find healing and wonderful bonding time with family. We constantly heard one another say what a perfect house it was to spend 6 days in over the holiday.
Rachel was more than happy to help in any way and made us feel like we can make her place our home for the week. Every step of the process was smooth and comfortable.
Thanks again for your hospitality and we look forward to coming back some day in the summer!

We loved staying at this Home Away property. Not too far from the beach and easy access to the freeway. We stayed with another couple and was plenty spacious for us and our 2 toddlers. Our favorite feature of the home was the garage door window/bar to the kitchen. The spacious backyard was a great perk to us! Thank you again for sharing your home with us! Would love to return someday soon!
As a family of ten we have a lot of needs, there was nothing more we could have asked for. Pictures do not do this property justice. If I stay in the area again, I will definitely stay here!
We had a great stay at this house in Oceanside.
Rachel was extremely responsive to any emails that I sent.
We loved the garage door window in the kitchen to let in fresh air. The house was equipped with all of the essentials. We enjoyed evening trips to the hot tub (someone checked on the hot tub weekly to ensure chemical levels were in balance which was great).
The ocean was an easy 15 minute walk. It was great to have a garage to store our bikes in (althought bikes were provided as well).
All the essential shopping was close by and was within walking distance.
We have nothing but good things to say about our stay at the house of Rachel and Jason and we would love to return next time we are in Oceanside.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. It was like a beautiful day in paradise each day we were here. The large windows with light coming in the house from the front and back make this house shine! Love the big rolling windows in the kitchen that open to create seamless indoor/outdoor conversations and entertaining. The landscaping in the front of the house provides beautiful privacy. The backyard is gorgeous with the grass, patio, furniture, hot tub and lush green plants that also give ample privacy. The owners have included everything to make this house a home – games, beach supplies, classic DVDs, books, piano, well stocked and handy kitchen, bedroom and bath linens/towels and supplies, etc. etc. The location affords easy access to many things in Oceanside, other coastal destinations, and San Diego -- just a few minutes to drive to the Oceanside beach, and access to the San Diego expressway is ideal. The Oceanside Thursday Sunset market was enjoyable with live music and a huge variety of food options. This is such a pleasant, comfortable, and fun home!
Spent 4 great weeks as guests of Rachel and Jason...both of whom are extremely personable real people. Even with El NIno flooding San Diego area for 3 days, our stay was memorable. House was perfect size for our family with a relaxing back yard. Rachel thought of every thing one would need from abundant linens and towels all the way down to coffee filters for the coffee maker. Jason was always quick to respond to and resolve any perceived "problem" Definitely on our list of places to visit again
