The Community-

Located in Oceanside, California, Emerald Lake Village is a gated Active Adult community of 161 Cape Cod style-family homes. It is a quiet community of well-kept homes on beautifully manicured grounds. Its amenities include green spaces with walking trails and a very nice community center with a clubhouse, swimming pool, spa/hot tub and BBQ grills. Although they don't look the part, these homes, built in the late 1980's are manufactured homes. They were factory built to meet the builder's specifications with dry-wall interiors, vaulted ceilings and high-pitched roofs, and assembled on permanent foundations. They each have an attached 2-car garage that is accessible from the house. The community also has an RV parking area.
Emerald Lake Village's is located approximately 6 miles inland from the Pacific coast giving it a Climate that ranks among the best in the U.S. This allows retirees to live a lifestyle that includes year-round outdoor activities to get the most enjoyment from their active retirement years.

Its Great Location-

Emerald Lake Village gets its name from its Emerald Drive and Lake Boulevard borders. It is located in the Tri-city area of Oceanside in a narrow east-west finger of the city that extends between Vista on the north and Carlsbad on the south (See a Map of the area).

This location places it near a nice, nearly new shopping center (approximately 2 miles away on College Blvd.) and other quality shopping and recreational sites. It is also located within 3 miles of a major Medical Center.

Living in Emerald Lake Village means that you're never far from fine restaurants, quality shopping, movies, live theaters, theme parks and other recreational sites and it is only an approximate 1-hour drive to the San Diego International Airport. Its close proximity (approximately 1 mile) to Highway 78 provides easy access to other North San Diego County cities and to the I-5 (coastal) and I-15 (inland) corridors to San Diego and to the rest of California.
Its great climate, beautiful surroundings and close proximity to the coast and to San Diego county's many amenities, give Emerald Lake Village an ambiance that provides year-round indoor and outdoor fun and games, balanced with culture, a comfortable lifestyle and a large choice of mental and physical activities.
