About Debbie Rumsey

John is a native San Diegan and has spent the majority of his life in North County. Debbie grew up in Phoenix and has been fortunate call North County home for the past 30+ yrs. We have raised 2 children here and absolutely love where we live and look forward to sharing our knowledge of the area with anyone needing information or suggestions. We enjoy going to the beach whenever possible, hiking, and skiing in the local mountains during the winter.

Debbie Rumsey purchased this house in 2001

Why Debbie Rumsey chose South Oceanside

When we saw this house for sale we immediately knew we had to own it. We absolutely loved it and used it as a long term rental for many years. The architecture is unique and the location is superb so we decided we wanted to share this love for our home with visitors!

What makes this house unique

One of the things we loved about this home, besides its architectural lines, was the fact that the home is on one street and the detached garage is located on the next street over so the house is accessible from 2 different streets and has plenty of parking.

GREAT beach rental - VERY conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Loved this rental. Cute house, had everything we needed. Owners were so nice and checked in with us to see if we needed anything. Location is PERFECT. Nice walk to downtown Carlsbad, close to beach and lots of small restaurants, pubs & coffee houses in south Oceanside . Use of bikes, boogie boards & beach towels were nice added bonus!

Great property and Location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful a nice touch of Ocean life. Access to the beach was a short walk away. And the ships in the area make you feel like that serenity you seek is in grasp.

Had a Great Visit to this Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a month and it was great. This house is well stocked and the owner is very attentive. We were here the month of July and the house was nice and cool even without air conditioning. It was great to sleep with the windows open and the neighborhood is very quiet. We stay in Oceanside every summer and I would definitely choose this house again.
