This bright, charming, secluded room is surrounded by a beautiful garden patio and located in a fully remodeled 1920s era home in Oceanside’s most picturesque residential neighborhood. The off-street parking, your own private entrance and private patio, private marble-tiled bath with skylight, and 150-year-old castle bed with feather down mattress and duvet make this a very special place. A friendly outdoor cat and a small parrot are also part of our family.

The space

Seasonal fresh fruit and fresh-baked pastries will be served every morning with your choice of K Cup-brewed coffees and teas, and a mini-fridge is provided. A remote-controlled electric fireplace will keep you warm on cool nights. Fluent Spanish and Greek are spoken here, as well as English.

Guest access

We are located only 5 to 15 minutes by car to excellent restaurants, shopping, beaches, the Oceanside Pier and Harbor, and other popular attractions. La Jolla, Del Mar, and San Diego’s Old Town and Gaslamp District are all less than 30 minutes away. We are about half an hour from San Diego Airport and 40 miles from Temecula's wine country. We are also close to Legoland, the SD Zoo and the Animal Park and 2 miles from the beach.

Interaction with guests

Your hosts author-anthropologist Richard and his gourmet chef wife Cara will be happy to welcome you as guests. We can also provide you with directions, restaurant recommendations and answer any questions you have about the area. You will have your own private entry to your patio and room as well as your own private adjoining bath, but we are just down the hall if you need us.

Other things to note

The 11.5% City of Oceanside occupancy tax is included in the price and is not an additional charge.
We have Wi-Fi in the house in the common area you are welcome to use, but due to the structure of the house, service in your room can be inconsistent. There is an antique vanity in the room, but no desk. You can use the table in the center hall, if you need one. We provide beach towels and chairs upon request. If you are in need of anything else, please ask and we will make every effort to accommodate you.

We loved everything. Cara and Richard were very welcoming and delightful to talk with. We visited with their cat- spooky was very friendly too. All the amenities were perfect and they even stored our tandem overnight. We rode our ride bike 56 miles to get there. If you're riding your bike please note they live on the top of a very steep hill.

So welcoming and comfortable. It was just about perfect. Everything. From the hospitality to the delightful breakfast on the private patio to the clean, quiet accommodations, it was exceptional. So thoughtful to provide a friendly cat, too, for cat lovers far from home. The room and bathroom have so many thoughtful touches, it should please anyone. Cara and Richard were very helpful in providing recommendations for restaurants and attractions and providing directions. We look forward to our next stay very much and left with great reluctance.

Cara and Richard are the epitome of the perfect hosts. They greeted us, gave us a quick tour of their beautiful house and our room, made us feel at home and then let us enjoy our night. We had plans to go out but after seeing how cozy our private, candle lit yard was, we decided to stay in and relax with some wine. When we woke us there was breakfast (made by Cara) and coffee waiting for us. We can't thank Cara and Richard enough for taking such good care of us, we will absolutely be back!

This is one of the best airbnb experiences ever. Beautiful home hidden in the hills of Oceanside, only a couple miles from the beach. Cara is a wonderful hostess and made sure we had everything we needed. She responded quickly to our texts. Here's what we liked: Comfortable bed with hand carved frame. Newly remodeled bathroom. Private patio area with refreshments. Delicious breakfast with fresh baked goodies and ripe fruit. What more could we ask for? This a great place for a romantic getaway. In 5 years of booking Airbnb, Cara's home makes our top five best places to stay list. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed a dream-filled night's sleep at Cara and Richard's magnificent home. The room and bath were sparklingly clean, the bed was comfy, the location super quiet, and the delicious breakfast Cara so thoughtfully prepared was an extra-special treat. The beautiful and very private patio made me feel like I was in my own little oasis yet Cara and Richard, who are the loveliest hosts, were nearby. I cannot wait to stay with them again.
