Warm, inviting, beautiful space steps from the beach!

I am a part of a women's group that gets together quarterly in different areas to relax and rejuvenate. We decided on Oceanside and found this beautiful home to rent for 4 days in March. Jody, the owner, was so friendly, helpful and attentive. She gave us wonderful restaurant recommendations and all the instructions we needed to seamlessly enter and enjoy her house. The house is beautifully maintained and had plenty of space for our gathering. Jody stocks it with all the amenities you could ask for including kitchen supplies, condiments and spices, bathroom supplies, bikes, boogie boards, beach towels, BBQ, etc. All you have to do is bring your clothes and you're all set! The house is only a few blocks to a beautiful beach and there are great restaurants also in walking distance. My favorite parts of the house were the pool table and the fire pit on the upstairs porch. We will definitely stay here any time we are in the area. Thank you Jody!

Just Like Home

We have stayed at this house for three successive winters (3 months a time). Every year was just like coming home. Jody is a marvelous host who not only makes you feel at home, but if a problem arises (seldom), she fixes it immediately. She even decorates the house for Christmas including a tree. The house is spacious and comfortable. The extras are way above average. The location is great for walking to the beach, movie theater, restaurants, downtown or driving to San Diego and other tourist spots in the area. It is less than an hour to get to the wine country of Temecula. I would highly recommend this house to anyone staying a weekend, a week, a month, or an entire winter. Thanks, Jody for making our winters in California a memorable experience.

Tremont Villa - Fantastic!

Hi Jody, It was such a pleasure to stay at the house during our California vacation. It was even more beautiful than the pictures! In all honesty, having the house was an integral part of me being able to relax and enjoy myself. With five children under the age of seven, it was so nice to have space where everyone could have some quiet time when needed, where the babies (11 weeks old) could sleep in peace, and where we could visit with our family who were all in town for my sister's wedding. Anyone who came over commented on how absolutely beautiful everything was. We were very pleased and will hopefully be staying there again during any return trips to Oceanside! I particularly loved the luxurious master bed...it was sooo comfortable. The kids had a blast walking to the ocean every morning; we thought the location was perfect. Thank you for your hospitality, and for being so great to work with. Cheers, Nicole

Oceanside Home

This is an excellent place to vacation. It is very convienent and centrally located. We went to Coronado Island and La Jolla one day. The next day we went to Long Beach for a tour of the Queen Mary. On Thursday night a street festival is 2 blocks away. The home is beautiful and very comfortable. The person in charge is wonderful to work with. I have travelled there twice on girl-friend getaways. It is a wonderful place.

Tremont Villa!

Our overall experience was truly awesome! It's proximity to the beach, the quiet and safe neighborhood, and the wonderful amenities made us feel like we were living at home. The linen, bedding, and towels were the best quality. The owners are so thoughtful when it comes to providing the little details...like beach chairs, sand toys for the kids, and even matching visors for the family. The house is only 5-10 minutes away from Legoland which was a plus because we didn't have to wake the kids up early. My 3 year old son had such a wonderful time, he keeps on asking us when he gets to go back to the "pretty house" with the pool table. We would definitely rent this beach house again and surely recommend this property to all of our friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful experience

Wonderful Furnished Home-Close to the Beach

We loved our stay at this vacation home. This is a very well furnished place. It feels very much like being at home away from home. The kitchen was fun to cook in. Having the grill was great. We enjoyed spending time in the living room, upstairs playing pool, and in the evening enjoying the rooftop patio. We loved the location, it was within walking distance to the beach, it was close to biking trails, shopping, the train. We would love to come back again

Tremont Villa is the Place to Be!

As the General Manager/Director of Sales in the Hotel industry I pride myself on being able to pick a great place to stay. The Tremont Villa blew all my expectations out of the water. It contributed to making our family vacation absolutley unforgettable. •Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc? The home was above and beyone what we expected it to be. The amenities and furnishings were absolutly unimaginable for a vacation rental home. If you think the home listing looks nice you will be blown away when you walk in the doors. We spend hours on end on the roof top deck and around the pool table! •Was the property clean, was it well-maintained, etc? The home looked like a professional housekeeper had gone through before we arrived. Immaculate! It has very up to date and modern furnishings. •Did the owner provide good customer service? I would email Jody with a question and I would have a reply within a couple hours of sending it. We also received a welcome gift when we arrived which was a delightful touch. We also didn't fly out until in the evening and Jody contacted the housekeeper and arranged a late check out for us, which was great. •Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative? I would recommend this property to ANYONE and EVERYONE! •What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike? We had a rental car but rarely used it because Jody so kindly provides "Beach Cruisers" (bikes; included one tandum) for your stay. The beach is only a couple blocks away so we obviously spent a ton of time there. Miso Harney Sushi was some of the best Sushi I have had in a long time! We also frequented Tremont Bar & Grill and Pier View Coffee. The Sunset Market on Thursday night was one of the highlights of our trip! Go with the Australian Meat Pie for dinner and Red Velvet Cake for dessert!

What a Great Place!

The house was both beautiful and inviting. We had almost all our kids and grandkids there at one tie or another and they all loved it. Quiet neighborhood. Just a short walk to the beach and the pier. The bike path was only a block away. San Diego a short drive. We'll be coming back.

WOW!

If you are wondering if you should stay here, stop wondering and just do it! My family had a fantastic time here. The house was beautiful and spacious - tastefully decorated yet warm and inviting. The kitchen was large, open, and had nearly every gadget one could want. We especially loved the short walk to the beach and the plethora of toys available for us to take there. The only downside was when we had to leave! Thanks for your hospitality and the venue for us to make lifetime memories.

Truly Exceptional

A clean home with plenty of space for a large group (there were 8 of us sleeping and up to 12 people eating/hanging out). Well-appointed, we needed for nothing but groceries and personal items during our stay. The owners have carefully, thoughtfully and thoroughly stocked and decorated the home. During our stay, we used all the spaces - firepit on deck, pool table, game table, media room, amazing kitchen, sitting area on front patio, grill. The home is located in a beautiful neighborhood. Short walk to beach. Short walk to Pappy's Liquor Store (and bait shop). Short walk to restaurants, movie theatre, shopping, Thursday's Sunset Market. Responsive and dedicated owners. Truly, a lovely experience from time of arrival to winding down. You should go. Have fun!

A Wonderful Place!

Tremont Villa is a lovely home: comfortable, spacious, clean and very well-maintained! Just as described in the listing, and then some. It was the perfect place for a small family reunion with space to gather and to spread out. When we arrived we found everything as described, and we had been sent all the information we needed to feel comfortable immediately. All arrangements were easily made with the owners. We felt welcomed before we came, and have already recommended the Villa to friends. The beach is a short, lovely walk away, a most comfy, impressive coffee shop nearby became a morning ritual, the street is quiet, and the town, including the Thursday outdoor market with all manner of yummy treats is just around a couple of corners. Thank you for opening your wonderful home to us!

Excellent Vacation Spot

This is an excellent vacation spot, whether you want to just relax and enjoy a California beach, or use this as a home base for excursions to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Sea World, San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The large, roomy home is impeccably maintained and beautifully furnished. We loved the large modern kitchen, and spent quite a bit of time just vegging out in front of the big screen TV in the front room. (It was a LONG tax season.) Thank you for a great relaxing time!

A Great Place to Stay

The roominess of this vacation home is fabulous and accomodates our family very well. We had stayed here a couple years ago and knew how well we fit so chose it again. There is so much to do that we never get it all finished but what a wonderful time we have trying! The ocean is only a few blocks away and there is so much equipment provided for our use. Terrific fun! Thanks!

First Class Rental!

I have stayed in vacation rentals before but never like this one! Everything from the furnishings to the dishes to the bath towels were first class. In fact, I contacted the owner and found out which towels she used and which silverware pattern she had and bought them as soon as I got home--very luxurious! We were here for a girls' weekend and rarely even left the house! The pool table was really nice and the patio area was very nice, too. I wish Jody would come and decorate my home! This place is also close to the beach and shops and restaurants.

Family Annual Get-Together

Once a year our family gets together in different locations and for special events. This year it was for Flo's and my 65th wedding aniversery and our grand daughters wedding. The house provided a location close to most family members and a place away from the 40 plus people to relax and have a few visit us. It was one of the best choices we could have made. Four or five at a time enabled us to get personal. We enjoyed the beach walks and the close axcess to stores. The house was perfect, comfortable and clean. Jody is an exceptional hostess and we were grateful for the chance to meet her. If we ever come back to the area we will use the house as our vacation again.

Can't Wait to Come Back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tremont Villa in Oceanside, CA. It had all the comforts of home.... if you live in a million dollar home! All the furnishings and accomodations were first rate: well-stocked kitchen; plush, comfortable beds; great location for the beaches and downtown Oceanside; fire pit on the roof; TV's in every room, and it easily fit our party of 6. This will become a regular stop for us since we love vacationing in southern California.

Our Oceanside Home Away from Home

We absolutely loved our stay at this vacation rental. It is exactly as pictured on the internet. It was very comfortable for our family of 13. It was very clean and fully stocked for our stay. It was a wonderful place to return to from whatever we had done that day. We enjoyed using the beach "toys" that were provided for our use. It was a short walk to the beach and the pier. The drive to San Diego and Disneyland were no problem at all. Then it was very nice to come home to such a nice place. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a nice place to stay in Oceanside. We are trying to plan a time that we can return, soon. Jody had thought of everything and is very nice to work with. You can't go wrong staying here.

What an amazing time we had at this beautiful home!

Our family vacation was one of the best ever due in part to the owners and the home itself. The layout and location are perfect for a comfortable and relaxing trip. The house has plenty of space for all, also very kid-friendly, even for our 2 year old twins. The house has everything you could possibly imagine- the kitchen is well-equipped and had all the amenities we needed to cook at home, the garage was stocked with bikes, beach chairs and more...perfect for the beach and the neighborhood. The linens, towels, and all the extras were top quality and we never needed anything more! The roof top patio and fire pit were a huge hit and great for summer nights. I would highly recommend this home and owner to anyone out there, you will not be dissapointed!
