This little place offers quiet charm and a taste of home. Each condo has a full size
Kitchen 1 or 2 bedrooms with private TV and a living room with Queen pull out bed,
Fire place, desk, tv & patio. Can't ask for more. Daily tmowel pickup, beach chairs, activities, and front desk help are available.
The pool and hot tub offer plenty of room to relax. The beach is. Just down the block. A daily walk kalong the strand invigorates your soul with sights and sounds of ocean waves.

Room Tip: Trains go by daily so ask for an alley room.

Beautiful 1 Bed apartment with all the amenities: full kitchen, garage spot with remote control access, nice pool & spa, balcony with ocean view. This complex is located in a quiet area, the train did not bother me at all. Walk distance to downtown/pier area (like 10 blocks).

Stayed: November 2015

This is our 3rd visit. Have had recent turn-over in maids, so the new ones still learning the ropes at bit. Clean rooms. Ours is 1 bedroom, 1 bath. Older, but well maintained, property. As with all properties near the beach in Oceanside, Train noise is an issue, but you get accustomed to it quite fast. Property is ususally full for the weekends. It is a timeshare that does rentals. It can be booked via RCI, and other timeshare associations. Units have a partial ocean view, but no unobstructed view of the ocean.

Room Tip: Any room has same noise. Lower end units will have garage door noise at night.

We enjoyed our stay at Aquamarine Villas, the ocean was only about 150 yards away which was close enough for us and lots of sun from the balcony. The pool and hot tub are very close to all the units very private and well maintained .Our unit was a 1 bedroom on the 2nd floor (actually the 3rd floor ) which was better because we could just see over the buildings to see the ocean from the balcony Perfect. The bottom floor is the parking garage, they give you your own remote for the garage door opener. The resort is located on the corners of Myers and Wisconsin St which is 8 streets from the Pier about a 15 minute walk. I read its the longest wooden pier on the west coast at 1942 feet very nice with public washrooms near the middle and a 1950,s style restaurant at the end called Rubys the food was good very filling. The unit had plenty of room for the 2 of us Full kitchen, sunken living room, fireplace flat screen TV with an interactive remote just like home its nice to know whats on TV . The staff is very friendly and helpful they come in and empty the garbage every day There is a variety store across the road and a shop on the other side of the tracks to buy souvenirs. Okay so there is an Amtrak line close by so, no place is perfect, it did not bother us that much, the fact that we are used to king bed and the 1 bedroom apt has a queen took some getting used too. We would come back here in a heat beat if an opening came up with our timeshare PHIL& SUE from Hamilton Ontario .

Trains. The complex of 22 units is located very close to major train lines but there is a way to deal with that. We opt for the CVS brand silicone ear putty plugs and block out nearly all the train noise.

The units are well maintained, attractively furnished, and one block from the water. Wisconsin Street borders one side of the building complex and it leads pedestrians to "The Strand" down by the water.

There are no elevators in the buildings and two flights of steps have to be negotiated before getting to the upper level of the 2-floor complexes. The office is actually on the alley behind the building (not on Meyer Street) and you access it through the parking garage.

The units have a decent sized balcony deck and the kitchen is full-sized. We prefer the one-bedroom units because the dining area overlooks the living room and the television is able to see seen from the table (as well as everywhere else in the main living areas).

During our stay, it rained nearly every day and we worked several puzzles, waiting for a break in the storm fronts (there were 5 in a row).

The Strand goes from Wisconsin Street to Breakwater Street. Its a really nice walk as it passes the beach and all the little beach parks.

Room Tip: Get as fr as possible from Meyer Street (where all the trains go by)
