Beach bungalow with deck, full kitchen & backyard - dog-friendly!

Make yourself at home in this remodeled Oceanside beach bungalow, built nearly 90 years ago! Come for the enviable beach proximity, stay for the dog-friendly and family-friendly outdoor space and comfortable accommodations.

Right around the corner from this home, you'll find VITAL climbing gym, offering rock climbing for all ages. Cross the street to Bagby Beer Company for a pint and dinner, and head down to Oceanside Pier afterward to catch a Pacific sunset. Rent a surfboard or bicycle at a shop nearby, or drive down into central San Diego for even more fun options.

Bring up to eight guests, as well as up to two dogs for a small pet fee, to this bungalow by the sea! Linger outside on the deck and enjoy San Diego's temperate weather - you can even grill out using the home's gas grill. There's room to relax down on the lawn, as well.

A full, well-stocked kitchen will make whipping up a delicious fresh dish a piece of cake. Hang out by the wood burning fireplace for a game night, or take the provided boogie board out for a spin at the beach. Free WiFi and three cable TVs are offered during your stay. With two bedrooms plus a sofabed and two rollaway twin beds, there's room for a whole family or two smaller families, and a private washer/dryer is also available for your convenience.

Book this charming bungalow for your family's San Diego vacation!

Close to the beach, downtown, train station, restaurants. All are within walking distance. The house is 1 block off of the Coastal Hwy.
We had a family of 6 with 2 dogs. There is plenty of space, TVs in each bedroom, WiFi, fully equipped kitchen with a full washer and dryer by the back door.
We will return again in our next trip.

The home is older, however, they did a nice job with the rehab through out the home and is very comfortable.

MICHAEL O. May 2019
Very nice house. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable for our family of 6. We travel with pets and the yard was perfect for our 2 dogs.
The garage fits a Rav 4 and there was plenty of street parking. We will definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed the home right off the back! Settling in was no issue, spacious and clean; everything had a place. I'll admit for two people it was a bit big, but the location, kitchen, BBQ, and pet friendly atmosphere were reasons for booking this fun find. My fiance used to live in Oceanside so visiting friends and reminiscing were how spent the down times. Our main reason for booking here was to go to the San Diego Wild Safari park, which was an easy drive with GPS Maps. Watching the smart tv was simple, just logged into our apps and there it was! We slept in the King bed, and it was amazing, so comfy! Showers were hot and updated with still the old beach bungalow feel, very cool. For anyone that has never visited Oceanside area before, bring lotion, water is hard. Parking was easy too: garage is a little tight but a compact car can fit, and street parking right in front. Five min walk to the beach, and breweries, bars, and eateries on every corner! Backyard was nice a roamy for the furbabies. Safe and secure with no worries. Adding the dog blankets were a welcoming touch, you can never have too many of those. I recommend to this home and I personally cannot wait to come back!

Walking distance to beach, resturants, and bars.
Patricia G. Mar 2019
The house was as pictured--tastefully decorated and roomy, and was within walking distance to the beach. It was the perfect home base for hosting dinner with friends and hiking in San Diego County.
Cheryl A. Jan 2019

Irene B. Jan 2019

Marcel D. Nov 2018
The house was ok but needs some plumbing work. The hot water in the shower in the master bath the knob is stripped. Be the toilet will not flush.
Manager response:
We are glad this guest enjoyed their stay! All toilets are flushing properly and the shower faucet handle has been replaced. Thank you!

Frances U. Jul 2018
Loved everything about this bungalow! The decor was awesome, slept 8 of us comfortably, and it was close enough to walk to the beach and restaurants. The GM was also extremely accommodating and easy to reach with any questions! We’re ready to stay there again!
Jacque A. Jun 2018
We had a great trip. We liked the location of the property. We did struggle with parking. We have a large truck and rarely found a place in front of the property to park. The home was clean and cozy. We did bring our dog so we appreciated being able to do so.
Jessica F. Jun 2018
The house was perfect! Clean, lots of space, close to the beach and outdoor space too! It met all of our needs!

Mary M. Apr 2018
Comfortable home in great location of Oceanside. Easy walk to beach and town.
KEVIN W. Apr 2018
This house is lovely! It's got nice space for a family and it's very nicely maintained/decorated. The yard and back deck are particularly nice additions. The location/proximity to the beach, restaurants, and attractions in the region made this a great place for us to vacation with our 5yo daughter. She particularly liked that there were even some beach toys in the closet.
Pierre W. Apr 2018
The pictures do not do this place justice! Very nice! The only thing missing are beach towels. You can hear the train during the day but we never heard it at night. Street parking was easy. We would stay here again!
Roland G. Mar 2018
Great location, close to restaurants and beach. Nice and roomy. A little noisy with the trains going by and traffic, but not bad.
Ronald C. Mar 2018
Quiet spacious. Location. Relaxed feel
Michelle H. Feb 2018
We stayed 3 nights and were comfortable and safe. The house is older, but some very clever updates have made it very nice to be in. Anything we needed was in the house - all kitchenware, appliances, soaps, bedding, etc. We were able to do our laundry in a nice, modern washer and dryer. That was a really plus. I'm particular about cleanliness and this met my standard.

Michael M. Feb 2018
Nice updated house. Good location, backyard seating. Perfect for 2 couples or family. Would certainly stay there again.
Patricia Dorothy K. Jan 2018
While Oceanside as a town wasn’t a great match for me (76 yo widow) this cute house suited us quite well. We were never bothered by any noise at all, neighbors seemed polite. It was evident that the owner cared to provide well for her guests And trusted them w decor that had some taste There was adequate space for my son, my dog and I, and family guests on some occasions. I appreciated the good showers (and water pressure, plenty of hot water and large size laundry appliances. ) Also we found thermostat responsive when it got chilly The interior of the house surpassed the exterior; front yard being barren and no furnishings on small front porch.
It was close enough to the beach to walk and parking on street always easy.
Sara M. Jan 2018
We had so much house in this beach house. It is bright with lots of sun lights. The house is clean and well-equipped with anything you might need. I wish I could give it extra star since it has surfboards.
Kyle T. Nov 2017
Location is awesome!

The Pier is about 5 minutes away, Lego land just a 10-minute drive, and local stores/restaurants just 1 block away!

We'll most definitely return next year!

Thanks Vacasa!

We truly enjoyed our stay. We love Oceanside, its far enough away from everything to relax without all the tourists but close enough to get to places that you want to visit. We went to Coronado Island and the Zoo with ease. Fabulous home neighbors were quiet. It was so relaxing to come home and rest after a long day of being a tourist. Thanks VACASA.

I have stayed at other properties with VaCasa and I have enjoyed them all in the past. This one definitely tops all previous locations. Me and my guests had commented on how comfortable and nice the furnishings were. I enjoyed using the record player and it was nice to see a fully stocked kitchen thank you . We hope to return to this property again should it be available in the future .
