Well Established 55+ Community of Oceana in Southern California Has a Twelve Neighborhoods, a Wide Range of Home Styles and an Old Fashioned Vibe
Oceana is a group of 55+ communities situated in the coastal city of Oceanside, which is located between San Diego and Los Angeles. It is just to the south of Camp Pendleton and was built in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Two thousand single family homes, duplexes, fourplexes and condos with 25 floor plans are here.
The homes are clustered in 12 neighhorhoods, each with an HOA, a clubhouse and a swimming pool. The condos are in a three-story building, but all the other residences are single story buildings. They generally have a white or tan exterior, a flat roof and an outside entrance. Some residences have a carport; others have an attached garage. Sizes range from about 600 square feet to 1,700 square feet. Most dwellings have two bedrooms and two baths. Current home prices start in the low-$200,000s. Please verify this with a Realor as prices may change. Oceana also has furnished and unfurnished rentals available.
The community might feel a little dated to some, but to others it invokes memories of Southern California's heyday. It has plenty of green spaces, and many homes have a view of the valley, mountains or ocean, which is about 10 minutes away.
HOA fees vary from neighborhood to neighborhood but are generally $200 to $415 per month and include access to the clubhouse, cable TV, insurance, common area maintenance, trash pick-up, sewer, and in some cases, water. Residents of the largest and oldest neighborhood, original Oceana, receive a discount on the next door Emerald Isle Golf Course.
The primary clubhouse is open to all homeowners and has a library, a woodworking shop, a computer room and more. Outside, a dog park, a community garden, two swimming pools and walking trails await.

Some of California's top attractions, including Sea World and Disneyland, are within 45 minutes.
