expand_more How many people can stay in a condo?
Oceanside regulations provide that the maximum occupancy for a studio or 1-bedroom condo is 4 people, maximum occupancy for a 2-bedroom is 6 people, and maximum occupancy for a 3-bedroom is 8 people. The age of the person is irrelevant; babies and toddlers
do count, even though they take up much less space. The North Coast Village HOA levies a $500 fine (per person per night) for any violation of this rule.
expand_more Can I bring my pet?
Pets are NOT allowed in any of the MakeMyVacation.com properties.
expand_more Does the condo have air conditioning?
Air conditioning is NOT available in any of the North Coast Village properties except E-14. Many rooms have ceiling fans and we also provide portable fans.
expand_more Should I purchase travel insurance?
We encourage you to purchase Trip/Travel Insurance from ANY reputable travel insurance company to cover your rental payment in the case of unexpected cancellation. Trip/Travel insurance typically also includes a wide range of other travel assistance services
(such as travel delays, accidents, lost baggage, etc.). Please check with your insurance agent.
expand_more What do we do if we're bringing a second car?
Most of our properties come with one designated parking space in a gated garage. The following properties come with two parking spaces: B315, D303, E14, E303, E310, G125, and G315. If you need to park an additional vehicle, there are two options. The "A"
building and "B" building garages have a few "24-hour" parking spaces that are first-come first-serve. However, if you park there you will need to display a rental parking sign from the HOA and you MUST move your vehicle every 24 hours or you will get a $50
fine. The other option is to park in the municipal lot across Pacific Street, which costs $5 per day.
expand_more What items are provided in the condo?
Bath and kitchen towels
Dishes, pots, pans and flatware
Coffee maker and blender
Iron and ironing board
Pack-n-Play available in most units
expand_more Are there any special rules I need to know about North Coast Village?
Yes. When parking in the underground garage at North Coast Village, all vehicles must pull straight in. No backing in is allowed. In addition, the maximum size of the vehicle allowed is: Height: 6 ½ Feet; Length: 21 Feet. Also, nothing is allowed to be hung
over the balcony railings, such as beach towels. The North Coast Village HOA imposes a $50 fine for each occurrence of backing into a parking space or hanging items over the balconies.
expand_more What's up with the dredging?
Each year the Army Corps of Engineers engages in a sand-replenishing program (also known as dredging) where it removes about 180,000 cubic yards of sand from the mouth of the Oceanside Harbor, where winter ocean currents have deposited it, and replenishes
the beach with it. This usually occurs in late spring to early summer and usually lasts no more than ten days to two weeks. MakeMyVacation.com has no control over when this occurs, how long it lasts, or where the equipment is located.
