Overview

Townsite Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 BR, 2 BA with ocean view and rooftop balcony (Sleeps 6)

Blue Whale Retreat - D303 at North Coast Village is managed by MakeMyVacation.com, experts in the Luxury Beach Rental experience, with over 2,000 bookings to date!

Sleep and wake to the sights and sounds of the surf! Relish amazing whitewater ocean, pool, and garden views from both balconies of this remodeled two bedroom condominium. Enjoy great ocean views while watching your kids swim in the lagoon-style heated pool, with easy access to the sandy beach just steps away!

The living room of Blue Whale Retreat features a sectional sofa with queen size pull-out bed, stereo, and a television with cable and DVD player. It opens to a private ocean-view balcony.

The contemporary kitchen features custom cabinets, granite counters, tumbled stone back splash, tile floor, and recessed lighting. You'll find a refrigerator, stove, microwave, and dishwasher. It is equipped with dishes, pots, pans and flatware, cooking utensils, coffee maker, toaster, and blender. The dining area seats four.

The entire 2nd level is the romantic master retreat with a large ocean-view balcony.The downstairs bedroom has 2 twin beds. All bed linens are provided. Both baths are a tub/shower combination.

For your viewing enjoyment, 3 televisions and DVD players are provided. High speed Internet and cable television is included free of charge at all MakeMyVacation.com properties.

As you walk through the staffed secure gate to North Coast Village, you're transported to a tropical oasis reminiscent of the Costa Rican Rain Forest. Running streams, waterfalls, lush foliage, and Koi meander through the spacious grounds of this resort-like beachfront condominium complex located in Oceanside, California, between the Harbor and the Pier.

You will notice the crystal clear heated pool and spa, gleaming barbecues, convenient picnic tables, and sand rinsing stations to remove the lingering beach. If you need a break from sun and surf, you might enjoy a game of pool, a jog on a treadmill in the exercise room, a little ping pong, or a sauna. Feeding our giant Koi is a simple pleasure not to be missed during your Oceanside visit. There is also a putting green and foosball.

When you venture all the way through the back gates, you find yourself on one of North San Diego County’s finest beaches: broad and flat, with fire rings, volleyball, and great surf breaks - right out back! Be sure to stake out a fire ring to the south for a unique evening beach fire at least one night while you are in Oceanside.

To the north, you can walk or bike to Oceanside’s busy little harbor for a bite to eat or some boating, and to the south you can venture down the strand to southern California’s longest pier for some fishing (no license needed) or casual dining at Ruby's. North Coast Village is close enough to walk to everything near the beach, so your car can stay in its secure underground parking spot - especially useful when beach parking becomes a premium in the summer.

The Mainstreet Oceanside Farmer's Market is a delightful experience near the Pier which takes place every Thursday from 9-1, and and the Sunset Market Thursday evenings from 5-9.

Within a short drive, visit Disneyland & California Adventure, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios, Magic Mountain, Balboa Island, La Jolla, Mission San Juan Capistrano, Mission Luis Rey, Queen Mary, San Diego State Parks, San Diego Wild Animal Park, Legoland, Sea World, The Flower Fields of Carlsbad, Temecula Wine Country, San Diego Zoo, Del Mar Racetrack, Coronado Island, Oceanside Harbor, Birch Aquarium at Scripp's Institute of Oceanography, and Palomar Observatory.

About MakeMyVacation.com

We grew up in separate towns in California, approximately thirty-five miles apart. We met by chance in our mid-twenties while both celebrating events with co-workers. You could say that it was love at first sight and after forty years, the rest is history! We raised two fine young men, worked hard, tried to save more than we spent and eventually were able to save enough for a down payment toward our dream of owning a place by the sea. We purchased our dream spot D303 in 1999. Since then, we’ve had fun remodeling, decorating and making a number of improvements to it.

MakeMyVacation.com purchased this condo in 1999

Why MakeMyVacation.com chose Oceanside

We love the ocean as well as the San Diego area with its attractions and ideal weather. We never dreamed that we’d be able to own a place where we could actually see and hear the waves and walk just steps to the shore. When D303 became available, we felt that it was a great location to enjoy time with family and eventually become our ideal retirement spot. This all happened about the same time that our oldest son started at UCSD, which gave us a great half way point to visit with him often.

What makes this condo unique

After looking at a number of nearby locations within our price range, our realtor introduced us to North Coast Village and we were instantly sold! Its location and the amenities offered in the complex far exceeded our expectations. Everything else that we had looked at before paled by comparison. Not only do we get to see and hear the ocean waves, but we enjoy a perfect view of the lovely resort-sized pool and putting green. We can stroll through the beautiful complex and enjoy lovely well-maintained landscaping with streams and waterfalls leading to a large koi pond, game and workout rooms, BBQs and laundry facilities and much more.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very nice facilities. Quick response when we requested additional towels. Having beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels is a very nice addition. We plan to return next summer.

This has been my 7th year choosing North Coast Village for our vacation with our family. The Blue Whale Retreat is by far my best time, location of the condo and view of the ocean and we watched the sunset every evening from the balcony. The weather was just perfect. I recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing time. I'm hoping to grab this condo next year.
