This home has some definite pros and cons.
Pros: really close to the beach. About 20 minutes drive to Legoland. Updated kitchen. Parking on a driveway so you don't have to battle for street space on the weekend. Responsive host and very nice on-site manager. The unit was clean and functional.
Cons: the neighborhood is... transitional? and I'm not sure it's transitioning in the right direction. There was always a variety of items left out on the street (couches, old appliances, etc) and we got to try to tune out a particularly loud and expletive-strewn fight in one of the apartments across the street. That said, other tenants we encountered in the shared common areas were all pleasant.
Due to lack of air conditioning (A/C is rare in Oceanside homes) and a particularly humid/hot week, we had to leave all the windows open or die a slow and sweaty death. It isn't the kind of neighborhood where you feel like you want to leave the windows open. That said, we didn't have any problems.
The train is near enough that you definitely hear it.
Furniture is functional but sparse. Living room seems the next likely space in need of updating (two older recliners on the side with the TV and a couch that has seen better days on the other side of the room). The main bedroom's bed frame isn't supportive and our first night was spent wrestling to get the mattress to perch properly with no cross-beam support in order to correct a sideways slope. We were grateful to have bunk beds, but the ladder was challenging for my 8-year-old to use to get down.
The unit seems to have been remodeled to make the second room (the one with bunk beds). The only way to turn off the overhead lights in that room is to turn off the lights in the living room as well (all overhead cans share one switch), so it seems that room was probably added via a wall + door.
There are few outlets and many walls have none. One outlet was coming out of the wall.
All in all, I would likely opt for a different neighborhood next time we visit friends in Oceanside. The beach near the house was rocky and we ended up driving South and parking, so the nearness to the beach wasn't enough of a draw for us.
However, the unit was a good value for sure. I think I would have enjoyed it much more in a time of year when I didn't have to have every window open.
