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.

Wonderful Stay in Oceanside, CA

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with using VRBO, and it was an awesome. This home was wonderful, and the homeowners made us feel right at home. It was located in a quiet neighborhood, and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation, and make us feel at home. The beach cruiser bicycles, boogie boards, chairs, and accessories for the beach were a definite plus. Riding the bicycles from the house on the bike trails to the beach was awesome. We rate this stay as Excellent and would highly recommend it. Thank you to the Rumsey's for making our stay a memorable one.

Quaint Realxing Homebase

  • 5 of 5

Everything listed and pictured on this home is exactly true. Very relaxing spot for those in between events if you are on vacation. It has everything you need regardless if it is a short or extended stay. Our 4 year old loved the backyard he didn’t want to go home, we were there for his 5th bday. Legoland and the beach are conveniently located and there are many options for eating in the thriving South O or Carlsbad Village. Highly recommend this place if you are looking for a relaxing space with original hardwood floors that creak! You will not be disappointed book it!

Fantastic bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this 2 BR bungalow about a 10-15 minute walk from the beach (it depends on how eager the kids are!) in April. Clean property with all the amenities of home, including a washer and dryer. We especially loved the fenced in back yard complete with picnic table and fire pit. Would whole-heartedly recommend this place for anyone staying in Oceanside.
