Sea Hive Marketplace in Oceanside CA Prepare to be Amazed!  I am not a big shopper. So I don’t usually gush about places where I have shopped. That out of the way…I love this place I just discovered.   And if you are a fan of vintage, modern/mid-century modern, antique or artisan-made crafts, and so much more, Sea Hive may end up being your favorite place, too. Redecorating a room or your home? Need an interesting accessory or a gift? Or just love collecting? You’ll likely find it here.  Sea Hive Marketplace just opened in August 2017, a collaboration between Todd Stephenson of Estate Sale Warehouse fame (right down the street in Oceanside) and others. Located in the popular South O area of Oceanside, with over 12,000 SF of space and I think about 100 vendors, this place just goes on an...

101 Cafe Wall Mural in Oceanside I drive by this classic diner in Oceanside often, located on the historic 101 (aka the Coast Road) where it's been since 1928 - making it Oceanside's oldest restaurant.  Despite all my time here in neighboring Carlsbad I have yet to stop in...something to be remedied I think. I drove by 2 days ago, on the side road, on my way home from an inspection at a beautiful ocean-vew condo. It was a gorgeous fall day and the colors on the mural were particularly bright. And since I didn't already have this mural in my photo collection, I made it happen quickly before the light changed.

Who Remembers Gidget? I was showing oceanview properties today in Oceanside and we drove by the California Surf Museum - a fun place to visit if you are in town! In looking over the museum photos I had I found this picture of the Gidget display. Some of you may be old enough to remember Gidget, a novel, a 1959 movie (with Sandra Dee)  and a 1965 - 1966 sitcom (with Sally Field), about a “boy-crazy” teenaged girl and her surfing friends in Malibu, truly an icon of the California surfing culture.  It’s easy to see why this was included in the California Surf Museum historical treasures!

I've been showing a client a lot of homes in Oceanside lately. We are trying to get west of the 5 in Oceanside under 650K, but most places are fixers. We've also been looking nearby in Historical Loma Alta community and Fire Mountain. Yesterday I showed a really cool home that featured GOOGIE architecture. Basically, GOOGIE is FUNK FACTOR, INOVATOR type stuff.  Anyhow, I've seeen most of the homes in Loma Alta Oceanside recently between 500-700K, and when we saw this one we were like WHOA!The Loma Alta neighborhood is quite unique, compared to North County San Diego, at least. By no means are Historic Loma Alta Homes "Cookie Cutter". This is one of the larger commuities that you will find in this price point that is LOCATED LOCATED LOCATED, just 4 minute drive to the ocean. Loma Alta is...
