Stayed at NCV last June for a full week with my husband and two boys' ages 10 and 16. We rented a one bedroom condo on the second floor, close to the beach, pier side. NCV is centrally located to both LA and San Diego. We did site seeing in both cities.
We loved the fact that we could stand on the balcony and still be able to watch our kids boogey board. There is also a life guard station right by the condo that is manned until dusk each day.
The condo's are privately owned so, the decor and condition of the condo depends on the owner. Our one bedroom was perfect for the four of us since the couch made into a bed and a mat was provided so, the two boys didn't have to share a bed. North Coast Village has a wonderful website, the condo owners use to advertise their rental condos and show pictures. I recommend using this website so you can work directly with each condo owner. After talking directly to our condo owner, they provide us a 10% discount since my husband was retired military.
The grounds surrounding the complex are breathtaking and very well maintained. There was always someone around cleaning and maintaining the grounds. They have public grills by the pool and every morning someone was there cleaning them from the prior evening. NCV also has washers and dryers which is nice to be able to wash our beach clothes and towels.
Within walking distance of NCV is the Oceanside Pier with a wonderful old-fashioned dinner named Ruby's that serves burgers and real malted shakes for a very reasonable price. My boys loved the shakes! We loved the view off the pier. On the other side of the NCV condo's is the Oceanside Harbor also within walking distance. The harbor had a wonderful restaurant/bar called the Rockin Baja Lobster that had a wonderful happy hour drinks and menu and are famous for their buckets of seafood. We ate dinner there three of our seven nights!
The only down side to our trip was the temperature of the ocean in June. There were no adults in the water except the surfers in wet suits. My husband and I could only walk out to just below our knees before retreating back to the beach. The cold water didn't stop the kids. They still had a great time boogey boarding in the waves.
