About Bob Enright

After being in the Pre- IPO high tech software business for the last 33 years, I decided to build two new homes on the beach in Oceanside, Ca. and one is the rental.  My wife and I also enjoy spending time in our desert La Quinta home and the mountains of Vail, Co.

Bob Enright purchased this villa in 2002

Why Bob Enright chose Townsite

we razed our 60 yr old home and built two new homes on the beach with completion in July of 2008.

I was the owner/builder and tried to make everything with the finest quality!!

What makes this villa unique

Whoever makes the reservation will be the HERO of the day upon their arrive!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

THE FOLLOWING EMAIL WAS JUST RECEIVED FROM OUR LATEST GUESTS (MARCH 2010): Bob and Linda –AWESOME! Thanks for sharing your amazing view, fantastic beach, wonderful accommodations, and perfectly located home during our Spring Break family vacation. It seems rare these days to be pleasantly surprised by much but you succeeded on a grand scale. Prior to our arrival we had the best intentions of using this central location as our hub while we explored San Diego and Orange County. After going to sleep while the Ocean crashed less than 50 feet from our beds, we awoke to Dolphins surfing the waves and promptly scaled back our plans of leaving this wonderful haven. Fresh coffee and the full breakfast menu from the Buccaneer (3 blocks away) only affirmed this decision. We did venture out to Sea World and Disney, at your recommended times, and battled limited traffic with time left over for a few scenic detours as we rushed back to enjoy the ocean sounds and perfect sunsets. We also enjoyed the Pier and several of the recommended restaurants, all within minutes and great directions. This was the first time that almost my entire family traveled to gather at a vacation spot but it quickly became known as the “1st Annual”. We are all quickly reviewing our schedules to get our spot reserved for 2011! We look forward to seeing you, and your home, again soon! Sincerely,Bret Henderson and familyPS – you are welcome to post this to your website, will send a few pics as well.

Fabulous home on the beach! Five stars!

  • 5 of 5

We searched a number of rental properties in Oceanside before making the final and absolute best decision! After reading 80 plus reviews, we knew this was the house for our family. Upon arriving on Saturday afternoon, we found the house to be more fabulous than we imagined. Every 5-star review was right on target. Linda and Bob are wonderful hosts. We rented this home to celebrate our 50-year anniversary. The home had everything we needed to make our visit to Oceanside absolutely top notch. Our family felt at home the moment they entered the house. Our two sons and their wives, and 6 wonderful grandchildren filled the home with love and laughter. The glass-walled kitchen was well stocked for our family of 12, the linens were high quality and the bedding very comfortable. Each family unit had its own bathroom, and there was plenty of space to accommodate both teens and toddlers. Our toddlers loved looking out the glass walls of the kitchen and balcony, leaving lots of tiny handprints in the process! The views are spectacular, and we enjoyed morning coffee while watching surfers ride the waves. The house was well stocked with lots of beach toys for the toddlers and bodyboards for the older grandchildren. The sand patio area allowed our younger grandchildren to play safely, while the teens enjoyed body surfing in the plentiful waves. A perfect house for all ages! We highly recommend this fantastic house.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a well maintained property. The kitchen is large and the appliances are first rate. Gorgeous view of the ocean through the floor to ceiling glass walls. A high chair and child gates are available in the garage, however, no crib or pack and play. This was not an issue as I knew this was the situation before we headed to Oceanside.

A big thank you to Bob and Linda

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The beach was perfect for the children to play and keep an eye on them while the older kids could walk down to play in the water. The kitchen was perfect with the large windows and everything you could need. The rooms were comfortable and it was nice to have the 3 bathrooms.

A favorite family gathering spot

  • 5 of 5

This visit was the fourth time our family - coming from Maryland, Colorado and Oregon - has rented this house since 2011. Its location directly on the beach, the spacious and comfortable layout and amenities, and the attention and thoughtfulness of owners Bob and Linda have made all ages of our family enjoy returning. There is a large common space (living room, kitchen, and dining area) with ocean views, but also more private nooks for curling up with a book. The kitchen has an array of dishes, silverware, cooking utensils, and modern appliances for meal preparation; there is a large supply of sheets, bath and beach towels, and blankets available, plus a well appointed laundry room; and there are also beach toys, a cosy fire pit, books, and videos on hand for outdoor and indoor activities. We all paused each evening to watch the sun set over the ocean, sitting on the lower patio or upper porch, or around the dining table, looking out from the wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows. This house has given our extended family many happy memories, and I would recommend to others for multi-generational gatherings.

We loved our stay!! The house was just as expected from the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay. We were there with our two adult daughters and their husbands and four grandchildren ages 17 months, 2 1/2 , 6, and 9 years. The kiddos loved playing in the sand area out back on the beach. There were plenty of beach toys too. The steps down to the beach were a little difficult but we did ok. The tide was pretty high much of the time during our stay, but we waded in the water when we could. We also had some cool days so if it had been warmer we would have spent more time in the water. The beach near the Pier area is not that far either. We took walks to 101 for breakfast. It is good and a perfect walk. We also walked down to the pier area.

The home was so well furnished!! I can't imagine any place being better furnished! The kitchen had everything we could possibly need and the appliances and everything were excellent quality throughout. There was beautiful stone tile and granite throughout the home.

The beds were comfortable and it was so nice to have top end washer and dryer too, although there were so many beach towels and bath towels we did not need to wash too often. We also appreciated having three full baths--one for each family.

When we first arrived there was one faucet in the lower level that seemed to have no pressure and we had a little trouble with internet, at first, but both Bob and Linda took care of things right away.

The view from the kitchen eating area is spectacular! We took some pictures of the family at the table and it looked as though we were right on top of the water which I guess we almost were! We had never seen a complete wall of glass like that before. We also loved being out on the covered deck. We had only a couple spectacular sunsets as it happened to be a bit cloudy at sunset much of our time there but it is fun to be able to see sunsets and we enjoyed watching several surfers right out back too.

We also enjoyed the area very much. There are many good restaurants. We loved Tin Fish and Hello Betty and also a couple at the Oceanside harbor and several in Carlsbad which was a short drive. The guys found golf courses to enjoy as well. We also spent a day at the San Diego Zoo which was wonderful.

I really can't imagine anyone not enjoying this beautiful home and the Oceanside/Carlsbad area.

Thank you Bob and Linda for sharing it with us!!

Dolphins, seals and sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing month in this rental.

Waking up in the morning to a full glass view of the ocean--having coffee while watching seals and dolphins--was amazing. The kitchen was fully stocked and super functional for the whole family to cook.

Sunsets were breathtaking and we often took the 20 min walk to the Oceanside pier, or to downtown Oceanside to Swami's cafe and a great Thai restaurant. Carlsbad village was a quick 5 min drive away too. The area was safe for kids to run down to the beach on low tide.

Bob and Linda were accommodating and responsive with our needs and requests. The rental was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed (boogie boards, sand toys, extra blankets, brand new washer/dryer).

I HIGHLY recommend!
