Description of the Oceanside vacation home rental
This classic Cape Cod style beachfront vacation rental is the beach house on the sand you have been looking for. Perfect for families that want to enjoy a beach front vacation including a private beach and fire ring. This 4 bedroom single family home is really built on the beach. It has one of the largest private beach back yards of any rental in CA. Its private on the sand fire ring will be the ideal location to watch dolphins by day and sunsets each evening. You will enjoy unobstructed ocean and white water views. There is no home closer to the waves than this one. This family friendly home is fully appointed with everything needed for vacationing on the beach.
The historic and charming details of the bead board walls and blue wood plank floors will remind you of carefree summers from your childhood and where you will want to return to year after year. Similar to the famed Top Gun Beach House,this true beach cottage is just about the last one left on the beach. The living room, dining room, family room, and bedrooms combine to create the perfect beach house rental. Separate entrances for each level, with no interior staircase, provide privacy while vacationing with extended family or friends. The relaxing sound of waves crashing in your backyard can be heard from every room. Stroll down to the pier for a morning cup of coffee or watch breathtaking sunsets by the bonfire. There is no street or sidewalk between this home and the beach, so you have complete privacy.

Since the white sandy beach and the Pacific Ocean are your backyard, you will be able to enjoy all beach and ocean activities.
Area Information
Located directly on the sand, this is a beachfront home in Oceanside. This is not a condo so you will have the entire property to yourselves and will not share any of the property private beach or grounds. The home OWNS the beach so you can enjoy your beach and fire ring in complete privacy.

Layout: Enter from the front door to the main level. There is a living room, family room and kitchen on this level. This level also has a bedroom with one queen bed and a bathroom. Go out the dining room sliders to the upper deck. Often grandparents enjoy this deck view of the beach. Go down the outside deck steps to reach the lower deck and lower level. Inside there is bedroom number two with a queen bed. This room has a view of the ocean. Down the hallway is the downstairs bathroom with bead board walls. Bedroom number two has a queen bed and a twin bed. On the other side of the hallway is the family room. This is a great place for kids and teens to hang out. Off this family room is the fourth sleeping area with two queen beds. It is not a formal bedroom but works very well for kids or teens. Now the bet part is the back yard. A huge wooden deck leads the way to a nice size lawn- a great treat for a week at the beach. Beyond the lawn is the private beach and fire ring.

This is away from the noisy and congested areas of the strand, and the 800 and 900 blocks. There is no public walkway, sidewalk or street between the home and the ocean. There is nothing shared with other renters. First built in 1898 it is romantic and adorable.

This is old school beach house ! Very cool !

February 1, 2015

Very charming. Kims book of local things is very helpful. It was clean, cozy and the view is amazing. Parking if front of house is nice. Plenty of good food close by. Larrys beach house doesnt look like much but the food was great (just a couple of blocks away) We plan to go back with our son and grandkids next year. Owner is easy to contact and very nice.

This house was taken, so rented from someone else.

This sounded like just what we were looking for. One of the problems was that it did not have a garage. Need something with a garage for our exotic automobile. Will check back later for another try to stay on the beach.

We just wrapped up a FABULOUS week in Oceanside! This week was truly our favorite family vacation. The accommodations were welcoming in its decor, comfy in its style and clean in its appearance! The beach experience is amazing. We felt as if we had our own private, family beach for a week! We left with so many amazing memories. We can't wait to come back to this house in Oceanside again next year!!!!!

David Hastings July 2011 Thank you for a great month at the beach. The house was just like the pictures only even better. We enjoyed the private beach for our kids- a great safe time on the beach. We also enjoyed eating at 333, Kings Fish House and Garcia's. Most nights we just loved to BBQ. The kids loved making s'mores over the fire pit. It was always a great way to end each evening, sitting by the bonfire.

Great Summer Vacation! Logan Dunham Dallas, Texas
Review Submitted Date of Stay June 1, 2011 My husband and I decided it would be nice to rent a beach house with another family to kick off our kids' summer vacation this year. We had never been to Oceanside before (though we had been to San Diego for a Sea World trip once before) but it turned out to be just perfect. The kids enjoyed having a room to share and play in and the house was more than large enough to contain all 8 of us. The house has it's own private beach and the kid's definitely enjoyed being able to go play outside "without the parents" (though we could still see them from the living room windows!) We took advantage of the fire pit for roasting marshmallows and enjoyed the gorgeous California beach weather. There is truly nothing better than falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing - this is truly one of the most relaxing places I have been in quite sometime and I'm sure we will be returning for many years to come! Thanks Kim for the great vacation and for your hospitality!
