Why Choose Oceanside, California

Experience the Hidden Gem of Coastal California

We could go on and on about what makes Oceanside California special, but I don’t think you came to our website to read a novel! Instead I’ll highlight our top five reasons below (if you’d like the full version just give us a call).

  • Centrally located – Oceanside is the perfect middle ground if you want access to all the amusement parks that Southern California has to offer. Within an hour’s drive to the North you have Disneyland & Disney’s California Adventure and in even less time to the South you can visit SeaWorld, LEGOLAND, and the San Diego Zoo.
  • Local Sightseeing – You have all you need within walking distance of North Coast Village to create the perfect vacation. Just North of the complex is Oceanside Harbor where you can find all sorts of fun activities, quaint shops, and delicious restaurants. Among the activities offered in the harbor are whale watching tours, deep sea fishing, sailing lessons, jet ski and boat rentals, surf lessons, and kayak and paddle board rentals. The restaurants offered there range from Italian to seafood & steak. To the South of the complex is Oceanside Pier, great shopping, and even more restaurants.
  • Authentic Beach City – Unlike metropolitan beach cities to the North and South, Oceanside has maintained a local community feel and the residents take pride in providing original culinary experiences and tailored activities for you and the whole family.
  • Killer Waves – Oceanside is known as a surfing destination amid sport enthusiasts. In fact, the waves are so great that Oceanside beach is home to the Supergirl Pro surf competition each Summer. New to catching waves? Don’t worry, there’s a closer break that’s perfect for all boogie boarding members of the family.
  • Climate – With its year-round sunny climate there is no “off season”. USA Today rated Oceanside as the second most ideal climate in the United States and the fifth most ideal weather in the world! Yes

North Coast Village Vacation Rentals

Experience the hidden gem of Coastal California

Thank you for visiting us at On-The-Sand! We specialize in Oceanside vacation rentals located in the stunning resort-like complex of North Coast Village. Due to the complex's location being directly on Oceanside beach guests have immediate access to awesome waves, sand and fun. Not only does the Village have excellent beach access but it is centrally located between Oceanside Harbor and the Pier - both of which are within walking distance.

North Coast Village is a 24-hour patrolled complex with gated parking garages and round-the-clock patrol guards. As you stroll through the lush tropical grounds past waterfalls, streams, and KOI fish ponds you will feel like you're at a high-end resort. The Village has amenities that no other location in Oceanside can claim with multiple pools, hot tubs, commercial grilling stations, a fitness center, and more!

You will probably also happen upon a few of our resident bunnies that wander the grounds. You really have to visit to fully appreciate just how unique and special this location is.

Oceanside is also a hidden gem as far as California Vacation rentals go as Oceanside beach has maintained the laid-back home town feel which is lost in the overcrowded, tourist heavy beaches up North. The local "O'siders" take great pride in providing a variety of local home grown restaurants and tourist activities. Such a variety of food and activities makes it so you never have to leave the city limits to have an amazing vacation. If you are interested in visiting some of the world-famous amusement parks and sites that Southern California has to offer Oceanside is a perfect midway point between Los Angeles and San Diego.

We had such a great experience with On the Sand Vacation Rentals. The grounds were gorgeous and very well maintained. My family loved the pool and hot tub. The beach was our backyard!! Our room was beautiful, very clean and recently updated! We will definitely be going back! The staff was friendly and made sure to give plenty of suggestions of things to do. We were very impressed.

I recently went on vacation through On The Sand to North Coast Village. It was my first time there and it didn’t disappoint. I felt like I was stepping into a magical world when I walked the grounds inside the complex and loved the unique greenery and flowers. We could get directly to the beach from our condo and even with the beautiful beach right there we had to get some time in the amazing pool and secluded hot tub. Everything was so clean and our condo came fully equipped with everything we needed and more. I loved the personal touches like a guest book that went back many years and treats on the kitchen table. On The Sand has great recommendations for restaurants and activities so we walked to nearby places for dinner and it helped narrow down our many options. There is a beautiful pier nearby and the beach is so clean and the whole area is very family friendly. I can’t wait to take my whole family and will definitely be staying in one of On The Sands rentals.

On the sand is the greatest rental management company I have ever worked with. They offered immediate assistance whenever needed and constant communication. From the start of our trip they got back to us during Saturday non-normal hours, they worked with us to fix payment method issues, they listened to our needs and they accommodated our inquiries and requests instantly. They are a premier absolutely superb rental company. I would seek out properties managed by them to rent in the future it was such a fantastic experience.
