Sandcastle Beachfront Home Rental w/ Private Beach & Fire Ring
Oceanside, California, United States 92054
This Oceanside vacation rental is a true beachfront vacation rental with a private beach and amenities for up to 10 people. This beach house, just north of San Diego, features a spectacular great room, dining area and a gourmet chefs kitchen with panoramic beach views from the floor to ceiling windows and spacious decks. A private beach and private fire ring are yours alone to use and enjoy. None of the property or facilities is shared with other renters. It features three bathrooms, three bedrooms with four queen beds and one queen sleeper sofa. The sleeper sofa is one of the new memory foam mattresses, so it is very comfortable! For parking, there is an attached garage, and again, you are not sharing this garage with other renters.
Gourmet Chef's Kitchen
The fully stocked gourmet chef's kitchen boasts a Commercial Five Star range oven, stainless appliances and granite counter tops for the person who loves to cook and prepare family meals. The three bedrooms are freshly decorated with luxury linens and bedding. The master bedroom features a breathtaking ocean view and door that opens onto the beach so you can listen to the waves as you sleep - and an en suite bath! The second bedroom has two queen beds with a door that also opens onto the beach and our third bedroom also has a queen with a window so you can also enjoy the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep.
Two huge decks plus a private beach and fire ring provide all you could wish for in a beachfront home rental. For those with young kids we have beach toys and pack n plays. Please note this is a vacation destination and not a party location. Please understand we are strict about our maximum of 10 people, including visitors. And most importantly, failure to enjoy sunsets will result in a fine of two sand dollars per day.
This is an amazing beachfront home rental you will want to return to year after year. This home is on the beach. It is far away from the congested strand area where a busy street is between any rental and the beach. And it is far from the 800 and 900 blocks of South Pacific St where it’s all dense rental condos behind massive seawalls and public walkways and nothing on these blocks are true beachfront. This home is right on the beach.

This was the second time we rented this beach house. We were just a party of four adults, but it would be wonderful for a family. Kim is very helpful and made our stay great. If I were to say there were any cons, maybe have towels in every bathroom. And kitchen garbage bags. That is it. Thank you, Betsie Pinckard
We had a very nice stay at Sandcastle Beachfront. I like that you don't have to drive very far to get to a store, but was disappointed that Ralphs was closed, but we did manage to find a VONS nearby. I myself had such a great time that I am thinking we'll be back again next year. The privacy of the beach is a plus and sitting on the balcony or beach was amazing to watch the sunset or listen to the waves. It was hard coming back home to Phoenix, but I really had a nice time there with my forever friends.
This was our very first experience with a vacation rental rather than staying in a hotel. It was amazing. The home was spectacular with a perfect location right on the beach. It had everything we could possibly need or want and was perfect for our kids. We will definitely be coming back. I would give it more than 5 stars if that was an option.
this was the best family vacation we have ever taken. Peacefull and lots of our own downtime. Walking to the little park down the beach for a coffee wevery morning was a great experience. Kids played basketball and swang at the park. We will certainly return to Oceanside and love this house.
This was our first trip to the San Diego area and we loved it. We found this house on Homeaway and really liked the pictures so we went with it and were really happy with our choice. The beach house really is just as it is shown and described. We were greeted with flowers-an appreciated touch. It was a big deal for us to save up for this trip, so as silly as it seems, the fact that they cared enough to leave us flowers meant a lot. The house is very big and is right on the beach. The best feature of this home is its location. You could not pick a better spot in So Cal than this one. We have kids so we wanted a nice safe beach with lots of sand where they could play in the sand to their hearts content and then be able to run into the house whenever they wanted or were hungry We also enjoyed how much fun we had using the the bon fire pit on the beach. We used it for both lunch time and dinner time. The bedrooms were clean and fresh with quality bedding and beds. The kitchen was very very nice but we only used the fridge and microwave and used the beach BBQ instead. Hot dogs and hamburgers cooked out on a beach BBQ do taste better than the ones made in our kitchen at home- why is that? I would suggest to people renting this house to bring bikes. We didnt have bikes and there were many bike trials and places it wold have been fun to ride bikes to. But then again this trip was all about being on the beach and we were. There was a welcome book inside the house that suggested we do a scavenger hunt on the beach, a sandcastle building contest and roast marshmallows at the bonfire- we did all three and it was a blast. Thank you for a great stay. We want to come back and stay longer next time!
This house is my secret go to beach getaway. This has to be one of the largest beach houses in the city. It can fool you because all you see from the street is the garage but once you enter,wow, huge great room and the entire beach is in front of you. Two of the bedrooms opened up to the beach. Kids used the bonfire ring all night So many of the rentals are really condos with a walkway and rocks that keep you from being true beach front. This one is one the sand with its own beach. This is a single family home so it was nice and quiet. it was so nice to to have to share the property with other renters. We are conservative and worried about who would be renting on the street with us. And the price is great. This home was less than many of the other rentals we looked at. The best part of the house was the kitchen- its new and updated with really nice appliances and equipment. They have last minute specials and we liked getting such a great deal for true beachfront. We were even greeted with flowers. Id much rather stay here for a night than at a hotel.
Wow! This place really is great. It is perfect in every way. THE HOUSE: The house is beautiful, spacious, and exceptionally clean. The main living room is large and opens up to a beachfront deck. The deck has a stunning ocean view along with table, chairs and BBQ. The kitchen is roomy and had a lot of pantry space. The dining room table sat quite a few people and more people were able to sit at the bar. The master bedroom opens to the ocean with a comfortable bed. The shower with a gorgeous marble floor and tile. I opened the windows at night and listened to the ocean waves as I fell asleep. There were two more bedrooms and one of them had two queen beds. My kids were in heaven.It is also decorated in a soothing beach theme. The bed is also very comfortable. BACKYARD: You walk outside to your own private sandy beach backyard. What a novelty! From the private beach you walk out to the Pacific Ocean. You are literally just steps away from the ocean. The beach was not crowded. There were a couple of families on either side of us that were staying in beach houses next to ours. Other than that the sand and ocean were ours for the taking. It was honestly like having my own private beach. OCEANSIDE: There is so much to do while you are here. The pier is just down the street. At the end of the pier is a 50's diner "Ruby's", which is a great place to get a burger an shake. There are also many restaurants either a walk or short drive away. There are farmers markets once a week in the morning and evening where you can buy food and goods. Legoland is just a few minutes away. But honestly, you could really stay right on the property and have the time of your life! I would highly recommend this beach house. You will not be disappointed.
Our family trip turned out to be so enjoyable because of our accommodations - it was everything that was described. The one small issue we had with maintenance were dealt with quickly, and was not an inconvenience to us. The dolphins entertained us daily, the sunsets were always amazing and different. The walking on the beach was the best therapy anyone could ask for. We will be back
We have enjoyed Sandcastle year after year for our vacation! We really appreciate the spacious and comfortable great room, the ocean view deck and the amazing view from the wall to wall windows. Walking on the beach, reading on the deck and relaxing – perfect!
This was our first time to rent a beach home instead of booking a hotel for our family vacation. This experience proved to be a great choice! The home is beautiful, well kept and contains everything you could possibly need to provide all the comforts of home. We dined every night on the 3rd story balcony to enjoy the beautiful sunsets and played every day with our son on the beach, which he was delighted to access from our back door. While there are public access points to the beach, the home is nestled far enough from those areas that we had very few people impeding our "personal space." Grocery stores are just minutes away so you can easily stock up for the duration of your stay and the kitchen is fully loaded with everything you could possibly need to create wonderful meals for your family. There is even a gas grill for outdoor chefs as well as a fire pit, which we used to make s'mores every day. The drive to LegoLand was less than 10 minutes, which made it nice so we could enjoy a morning there and come back to the house to let our 2 year old nap before going back for the second part of the day. Finally, we really liked having a fully stocked laundry room- a big difference from hotel living. The owner has thought of everything here and I don't think anyone would be disappointed in their decision to stay at this lovely home.
We knew when we walked in the front door and saw the incredible view and spacious living area that it was perfect for the three generations of our family. It was a quiet (except for the wonderful sounds of the surf) family home. The owner, Kim, had beautiful fresh flower arrangements placed both upstairs & downstairs. Healthy hors d'oeuvres were also provided on our arrival. We had contacted Kim prior to our stay and let her know that our grandson would also be with us. She had great suggestions for having a baby at the beach. The pack'n play and high chair worked well for him. There were even baby spoons provided. Being able to walk right out to the beach from the house made it so easy with a little one. Additionally, having such an abundance of items also contributed to making our stay comfortable. There was an incredible amount of beach toys, towels, cookware, kitchen utensils, etc. Thank you, Kim, we had a wonderful vacation!
Couldn't ask for anything better! Perfect kitchen with all amenities, wonderful great rooms and dining area. We stayed with 2 families (5 kids under 10) and we didn't worry about them at all because there was no boardwalk or riff-raff and we could sit on the private beach without having to lug any toys/chairs. Kim was so accommodating and even had fresh flowers, water, and food waiting for us! Would definitely come back to this to see the dolphins every day!
Very happy with all of the accommodations of this house. House was stocked like we already lived there. Kitchen had everything we needed and then some. The TV and DVD set up was easy to use. Tons of towels, beach toys, chairs and beach umbrella!! Plenty of space (rooms and deck space) to spread out, beautiful views of the ocean and sunset. Great spot on the beach as it is just far enough away from the public sections but not secluded. Thank you for the water, snacks and fresh flowers- wonderful touch after a day of travel. Look forward to coming back again!! Miss it already!!
The house and location exceeded our expectations!! The house is so well stocked in the kitchen with every utensil and cooking item you need. There are more than enough towels, beach towels, beach toys and chairs to accommodate our large family. The owner was very thoughtful in leaving some snacks and bottled water for our arrival. The fresh flowers were a nice touch. The beach in front of the property is excellent for boogie boarding, surfing, shells or just relaxing. We will definitely stay here in the future!!
We loved staying at this beautiful and spacious beach house. This was the first time we tried renting a vacation home and it exceeded our expectations. The home is clean, comfortable, safe and with all the conveniences you could need/want. The view from each level is amazing. The layout of the house is perfect, because it allows you to gather with family/friends in the main living area or to go off or to rest alone in a quiet space (bedrooms or balconies). We had 6 adults and 2 young children in our group. We had an easy time getting to the San Diego Zoo, Legoland and Balboa Park from the beach house. We also spent most of our time at the house, because the weather was great and we just didn't want to leave the view and sound of the ocean. Kim was very welcoming. Again, this was our first time renting a vacation and Kim made us feel at right at home. Everything described in the listing is accurate. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends. In fact, we just booked a return trip for this year.
This is an amazing beach front home and all the picitures are accurate. We were greeted with fresh flowers, snacks, and water. There was plenty of room for our children and grandchildren. We loved the different decks which gave everyone room to enjoy the ocean views. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and supplies. The only things missing were a plug for the bathtub and a highchair. Overall it was a great stay and We hope to return! Thanks again Kim!
From the moment we walked in, we couldn't have been more pleased! The family room is quite expansive and perfect for large families with small children. This was the first beach house with a kitchen for the many cooks in our family. We enjoyed many memorable nights sitting around the fire pit and roasting s'mores! We will definitely be back.
The perfect beach house for a family who loves having an amazing and inviting view. This home includes every comfort of home, a dream kitchen with a spacious great room . I shared my experience of our stay with a friend today and if Char books a week, she is my referral. Thank you for offering the perfect home.
PERFECT ! This is our sixth summer family vacation. Each year we have moved to a different beach house. We have found the perfect fit for my family of grown children, spouses, and beautiful grandchildren. The location is exactly as the review stated, on the beach, with a private beach . The view is breathtaking from the moment you walk in the spacious great room. The kitchen is well equipped and room for several cooks to be in the kitchen at the same time. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean. Loved having the middle deck off two bedrooms, enjoyed sleeping with slider open and listening to the waves and surf. I have to agree the fire ring is a big plus! Kids and adults enjoyed sitting around it every evening. I do not know of any other beach house that has such a large deck to provide outstanding views. We are always anxious to check in and this year was no different, Kim was so gracious to offer her beautiful backyard, also on the beach, for my family of ten to sit and wait for the home to be ready. I would strongly recommend this vacation home, just not the week that I want. Thank you Kim, for offering this Perfect beach house.
Our family decided we wanted to spend Christmas in a sunny location. We saw this beach front house & it was just what we all wanted. Everything was exactly like pictured & quoted. (It suited our family of 6 adults and 3 children. All the other furniture was plush and comfortable though.) Waking up & watching the dolphins & surfers from the balcony was a perfect start to our day. (We rented wet suits and surfboards from a couple local shops and went in the ocean everyday. The beach was lovely. We enjoyed the private beach area and used the fire pit for our Christmas dessert ambiance.) We made certain we were home every evening to witness the spectacular sun set. The owner Kim was very accommodating to our requests.When I mentioned I'd like to put something in a crock pot while I sat on the beach, Kim had a brand new one awaiting our arrival. The house was clean, all appliances worked. (Our Christmas dinner came out perfectly.) There were plenty of delicious restaurants nearby, (such as Ruby's diner on the pier, the Lighthouse in the harbor, the Beach Break in walking distance or the Breakfast Club Diner to name a few. Grocery stores or convenience stores were also either within walking distance or a short drive away. We all enjoyed discovering Oceanside's charm.) It was a Magical Christmas in a perfect beach house.
Sandcastle had us at the view from the living room/great room--wall to wall panorama of the ocean! Watching fabulous sunsets from the huge deck and having an endless beach to walk -- SO relaxing. The rooms were beautifully decorated, and the kitchen has everything you could want. We went once and, before we left, reserved the same week the next year!
Our cares were washed away the minute we walked through the door and were greeted by the expansive view & deck, fresh ocean breeze and crashing waves. What an amazing week! The house was wonderful! We had our coffee every morning on the upper deck and watched the surfers, anglers, boats and dolphins. Our baby played in the private sand yard while we sunned, we walked the beach, collected shells, and RELAXED! The kitchen & grill (and the great folks at Ralph's) saved us a ton of money in food, it was wonderful to go home with laundry all clean, and there was plenty of room for five of us to do our own thing. The neighbors were as sweet as could be, and everyone we met was super friendly! We absolutely can't wait to come back!!
We stayed in this beach house with family and friends over Thanksgiving this past year. It was absolutely lovely! There is nothing better than roasting marshmallows on the beach right outside your bedroom door and falling asleep with the windows open so you can hear the waves crashing when you wake up! We're from Idaho so obviously, this was an absolute treat for us. Previous reviewers mentioned construction but we did not have these issues - we had no problem sleeping in on the few days we wanted to and we didn't hear any construction noise so whatever was going on must have been completed before our arrival. The house is decorated adorably and the management was so nice and accommodating with the few requests we made during our stay (namely a couple cooking utensils we needed for our Thanksgiving dinner and a couple other referrals for things to do/places to go in Oceanside). We will definitely be back - the weather was nice for November, no rain or anything, but I would love to stay here in the summer when it's 75 degrees and gorgeous! Another tip: the house is definitely big enough for a couple families so it's totally doable if you want to do a vacation with another family or friends! A great holiday vacation - looking forward to staying again!
This was our first time renting a beach house, and we're afraid nothing else will measure up to this amazing vacation! The backyard is the beach and ocean! Kim was very upfront about the construction taking place next door, but lucky for us, the construction was finished!! There were no disruptions at all! We are two families with kids between the ages of 7 and 10. It was so nice to be able to sit on either balcony and watch the kids playing in the sand. We preferred to be on the ground level when they were in the water, but that was fantastic too! There were tons of sand toys and boogie boards for the kids. We ate dinners on the upper balcony with an amazing view of the ocean. The bedding and bath towels were nicer than what I have in my own home, and the washer and dryer were lifesavers! Walking to town was a bit of a trek with the kids, but it is totally manageable. We rented an electric boat at the harbor and cruised around for an hour. Then we had lunch at the Mexican restaurant on the pier (don't waste your time). Ruby's was a big hit with the kids, and we saw TONS of dolphins swimming in the ocean while we were there. The Sunset Market on Thursday evening is a must do! This is a property we will visit again and again!
We booked this house at the end of March. After booking and sending in our depost, we discovered (only through reviews) that construction was going on next door. We had 1 month before our arrival. When I contacted the rental company about the construction, the only offer was another house that cost substantially more for the week. With only a month before our vacation and plane tickets purchased, we felt we had no other options (most beachfront properties in this price range had been booked!!) but to stay with the house. We figured the construction wouldn't be so bad! We were woken up 5 out of the 7 mornings by the crew next door. The house under construction is SO close, it sounded like 3-4 men were in the house with us. We expected some hammering, noise etc, but we did not expect all of the yelling, swearing, singing etc noise. Not only was the noise bad, but the sight of the house is a complete eye sore. It is surrounded completely with a chain fence and a tarp which even blocks the beach views to the right! This was NOT the view that we payed for. We were quite disappointed to say the least!! I think it would have been only fair to have been notified at the time we made the reservation in March of this construction. It is not very professionally or ethical to NOT make this information known to renters. We would have definitely not made the reservation!! This "business" also will only accept cash in full on the day of check in. This was told to me in 1 email which I did not notice. It never occurred to me we would have to pay in cash!! We were told by the rental company that this was because checks have bounced in the past. We called our bank on Mon and they assured us that it would only take 24 hours for our check to clear. We communicated this to the rental company but they still demanded cash and got very snarky with us about it. We had to spend a half a day on the phone with our bank and make several different trips to the ATM to get them the cash! The house is nice. The beds and bedding are good. The kitchen has everything you could want. The house would have been great if not for the construction. If you like sitting by the fire watching a construction site under way, if you like staring at a hideous tarp, if you like being gawked at, if you like vacationing with a construction crew, if you like sharing a morning coffee with them in your pajamas, then this is the place for you!
We just spent the first week of April 2012 in this home and it was lovely and very comfortable, BUT the entertainment center in the great room was not working when we arrived and there was major construction going on next door, four feet away, which started at 7am each morning. The manager and owner were prompt about getting the entertainment center fixed but it stopped working again after a few hours and our requests to get it reset again were completely ignored. (We only wanted it for the news and a movie or two in the evening, but five adults with advanced degrees could not get it working and the two pages of instructions left with the house were contradictory.) The construction noise was terrible, especially at 7am (is that legal?)...nail guns, lumber dropping, sawing, a crane moving, and they used up most of the street parking near the home. The garage only fits one car. It was very unpleasant and uncomfortable to sit out on the terrace drinking coffee in the morning with workmen just a few feet away using nailguns. Yes, we enjoyed watching the dolphins and surfers, but it was hard to tune out the rest. We were warned there would be contruction, after we paid the deposit, but they said they didn't know what stage it would be and we were unable to rent anything else on the beachfront at that point so we took a chance. We did like the house and the location very much, and we had a wonderful family vacation in spite of the above, but we were sorely disppointed in the response of the owner. I also just noticed that we paid $500. more for the first week of April than what is listed here now. I think it will be a very nice place to rent once the above issues are resolved. Note, the laundry room is inside one of the bedrooms and there were air fresheners are in every room when we arrived. I had to unplug them all and put them in cupboards, etc., due to asthma in our group.
Love it! I think this is the best place to stay for week long vacations to So. Cal. It is in the perfect location for attractions and nightlife. Just minutes from great restaurants. This beach house has been tastefully decorated with full size kitchens, large beautiful bedrooms, and directly on the beach, I loved staying here. I will definitely be coming back!
Staying at this luxurious beachfront paradise was the very best part of my vacation and always is! It truly feels like a home away from home...soft blankets and comfy couches (oh, and a flat screen tv!) Also, everything culinary you need to make a wonderful meal OR order in and enjoy a bonfire on the beach. This house is fabulous! Another thing treasured is public beach access. At some rentals giant rocks make accessing the beach quite difficult in Oceanside but NOT at this location! It seems owners have removed rocks and added cement to make a dip in the ocean a breeze. While staying in Oceanside, I treated myself to a massage at the Chopra Center in La Costa Spa, Carlsbad and I highly recommend it to you. All around very friendly service (Thank you, Kim!) and tranquil atmosphere...a magical vacation you won't forget!
The house was great and very well appointed. It was very clean and well maintained. Plenty of chairs, tables and space to play, lounge and relax. The kitchen was fantastic. The bedrooms are roomy and there is nothing like falling asleep listening to the sound of the ocean waves. The best thing about the house is that offers private beach access! You walk out the door, down the steps and onto the sand. It is the best vacation my family and I have ever had!
I have stayed at this beach house a few separate times and it is one of my favorite getaways. Although there is plenty to do very close...I spent much of my time enjoying the private beach right outside. Typical day looked like this: wake up to sound of the waves. sip a cup of coffee on deck while watching the morning surfers. Spend day walking around Oceanside shops. Come "home" to luxury. Play in the ocean. Make dinner in a kitchen that whoever built it must have loved cooking. The layout and amenities are exceptional. Eat dinner on the deck while watching the sunset. The listing is accurate regarding how clean the house is kept--and I've never slept in a more comfortable bed! I don't think you can find a better beachhouse for the price. I will defiinitely return again.
How do I say this? It was like a little slice of heaven--in fact I felt as though I'd died and gone to heaven! Everything was superb, clean and well taken care of. And talk about views; this one can't be beat! Fresh ocean air filled the house, as well as that wonderful surf sound that's found only on a true beachfront property. The kitchen was five-star and very large--no bumping into one another while preparing dishes and cooking meals. A real money saver being able to eat at home and not go out for every meal. There are so many choices of where to eat too! From stools on the huge granite countertop to the large, family style dining table, out on the deck enjoying the ocean view or right down on the beach watching the surfers and boogey boarders. There was plenty of space for all in every way, including where to sleep. So comforting falling to sleep with the sound of the ocean waves breaking on the beach. We rented a car but used it only twice to go to the market and once to the pier. It wasn't really necessary and we could just as well have taken a cab the short distance and saved a little that way. I really have nothing bad to say about the property. It was just beautiful, better than I could have imagined. Worth every cent and a super fun time for the entire family.
We really enjoyed our stay at your wonderful beach house. The house was well equipped and much more than I had expected. We loved walking on the beach in the morning. We would go sight seeing during the day and came home to relax. It was a great vacation for us and we did not have to go too far from home. We would recommend your beach house to our friends. I definitely will return to your house.
