Welcome to Roberts Cottages #20, your home for the perfect vacation rental along the beaches of North San Diego County. Our San Diego beach cottage rental in Oceanside is within walking distance of the Oceanside pier and all the charming shops of this harbor area. There are endless activities to enjoy here year-round including surfing and building sand castles. Concerts and family events are a stone’s throw away during the summer months. There is a weekly farmer’s market every Thursday from 9am-1pm just down the street. The temperate weather allows you to enjoy the beaches year-round and with all the amenities of home plus a few extra luxuries. It would be no surprise if our guess will want to return to our cottage year after year. This is truly a one of a kind vacation spot to rent.

Many features make our cottage #20 in Oceanside vacation rental different from the other rentals along this popular strip of the Southern California coastline. It has been totally remodeled with all the modern conveniences including Wi-Fi, plasma TV, marble shower, stackable washer and dryer, two futons downstairs and a cal king & queen mattress in the loft upstairs; it’s the only vacation beachfront rental along this strand with all the upgrades under 300sqft, and it has a completely unique look and feel. Our cottage comes equipped with boogie boards, foam boards, surf boards, a toy chest with kids toys, beach towels and other supplies to help enjoy the sandy beaches nearby.

New restaurants are always popping up in the area such as 333 Pacific, the latest culinary endeavor from the acclaimed Cohn Restaurant Group. Nevertheless, you have the option to dine in with pots, pans and everything you could ever need to cook even a whole Thanksgiving dinner, many families prefer to prepare all their meals in this home away from home.

About Soudachanh Marchand

My husband and I own our own demolition and junk removal business in San Diego County. We have 3 children, and love spending our free time at the beach and especially our cottage in Oceanside. We try to live a very active lifestyle, with stand up paddle boarding, jet skiing, snow skiing and sports of all types.

We love anything outdoors as well from hiking to running and everything in between.

Soudachanh Marchand purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Soudachanh Marchand chose Oceanside

My husband and I purchased our vacation home to enjoy for ourselves and children. Since we live in the next city over, it was a wonderful stay-cation for us and our children. As the years went on we realized our life became busy and we were not able to enjoy it as frequently. Several years passed and we decided why not make it a vacation rental for all people to enjoy...and that is exactly what we did.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is small, yet very practical. We hired an interior designer to come and use every square inch to be as practical as possible. We hear all the time, that once guests are in the cottage is seems so much larger than 280 sq ft.

We also keep our cottage very well maintained, and up to date. We want our guests to enjoy it as much as our family and friends

Guestbook comments from the manager

Roberts Cottages are one of the first condos in the US. They are quaint, funky and FUN!!. However, they were also built in 1928 and are around 240 sq ft. This usually means you need to really like who you are with and expect things to be on the rustic side. This little slice of heaven is the exception. It manages to keep the charm, yet provides a sense of luxury. I have no idea who the magician was that put this all together, but it has everything!! An amazing marble tile bathroom with beautiful opalescent aqua glass wave tile accents, a little seat in the shower, and fantastic shower, lighting, and sink hardware with antique charm, The kitchen has beautiful granite countertops and a subzero freezer bigger than my dishwasher, plus a fridge, stainless steel appliances, a farm sink and every small appliance you could ever need. There really is a king and queen beds up the spiral staircase and TONs of linens ,pillows and blankets---normally here you have to bring your own. The living room features 2 large futon sofas, a large flatscreen TV w DVD and is done in a beautiful palette of beachy tones and gorgeous seashell art accents. There is even a closet with a washer and dryer, plus all sorts off things such as an UMBRELLA!! The serene beauty of this cottage that is stuffed with amenities yet feels spacious is what saved our vacation. This had to be one of the wildest coldest December/New Years EVER! Try squeezing 5 people--some surly teenagers into 240 sq ft when its freezing outside and see how much fun you have. Well we did have great time. Our 16 yr old waxed eloquent over the Disney princess TV, no one fought over movies w 2 TV and DVDs, the table became a space big enough for a rousing game of Life and hot cocoa. The space heaters kept us plenty warm and we had fun, fun, fun!! For us this was very special, I have a life-threatening illness that makes everyday and time an uncertainty. Every memory and every little bit of time together is precious. Thank you for helping us make another BEAUTIFUL MEMORY!!! Yay cottage 20!!!

Relaxing Beautiful week in Oceanside!

  • 5 of 5

My overall impression of the cottage and Oceanside was excellent. It is situated on a beautiful walkable beach with many things to do close by. The kitchen was well stocked with what is needed to cook most things. The beds were comfortable, the view was amazing and relaxing. We didn't do a lot, because it was just so relaxing to take the grandchildren for walks or to play in the sand. The big outdoor toy box was a big hit with my 2 year old grandson, and also meant my daughter didn't need to bring any toys.

Parking was right behind the house, so we got everything into house quickly.

The sound of the waves lulls you to sleep, and the whole area was extremely quiet, at least the week we were there. No loud parties or people to disturb the vibe of " we are at our secluded ocean cottage".

We live in the OC, so it was a quick ride down on the freeway.

Also, Oceanside has lots of good bike riding, relatively flat, and many off road trails where you don't have to worry about the cars.

The cottage owner quickly answered all my questions before I rented, helping me to make my decision. Places we enjoyed eating/ drinking were Dat boy good, for BBQ and the breweries located downtown.

Hope to return to #20 soon!

Cozy, quaint beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four stayed at Roberts Cottages #20 over New Years. It is just as described and pictured. The owner has truly done a nice job updating the cottage utilizing every inch of space. It is comfortable for a family, but be aware the spiral stairs to the loft sleeping area are narrow and steep. Once upstairs, the beds are very comfortable, but once again the area is tight and you have to crawl around, not able to stand and dress.

The kitchen is well equipped with the basics. Great sized fridge and freezer as well as full size gas stove/oven. The bathroom is another cramped area, barely large enough for the average sized adult. The shower was larger than expected which was great.

I realize that having tv/cable isn't a priority to most for a beach getaway, but we were surprised the basic cable only offered local news and music channels. As the weather was very cool and rainy when we were there, we had hoped to watch some college bowl games, but were unable to. On the other hand, having Wi-Fi was a great plus!

Overall, cottage #20 is very nice and I recommend it for a couple or small family. The ocean views are beautiful and the sand is just a few steps out the front door. Having a parking spot of your own is fantastic as beach parking is always challenging.

The owners and property manager were very prompt to return calls and emails. No problems at all during our stay.
