Oceanside is a great place to find beach cottage style homes in Oceanside, California. Back in the early 1920's is when we saw some of the first beach cottages being built here. In essence, a beach cottage is typically a smaller detached single family home that features under 1,500 square feet and was often built as a secondary beach home. It was until the 1950's when we started to see a large number of these types of homes being constructed which many of them still exist. They are ideal for those looking for a vacation or rental income property as well as those with a smaller household size. Oceanside is widely known as being one of the most affordable beach towns in San Diego County and many of these beach homes still have attractive price points.
The most expensive beach cottages tend to be located on the ocean side of the 5 freeway. We did a quick search and found only a couple cottages that were priced under $1 million dollars as this is the premier location for those wanting to be located near the beach. The large majority of cottages on the market right now tend to be located on the east side of the 5 freeway which also has lower real estate price points as well. One of the areas that we love to recommend is the East Side Capistrano area of Oceanside that often has beach cottages in the mid $650,000 to $750,000 range. The location is just on the east side of the freeway so it's still a very short driving distance to the beach with better real estate price points. A lot of times the the further east you go away from the freeway real estate prices will fluctuate. Keep in mind that there are some really nice neighborhoods like Arrowood and Rancho Del Oro that are located inland and have some higher price points.
