  • A great vacation spot


    Close to the beach and lots of good eating spots. A reasonable drive to San Diego for a day trip to the zoo or other attractions down there. We certainly intend to return here when we vacation in southern CA

  • Great Home and Host


    The home is great condition and well laid out as shown in the photos. All the key necessities were there from beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and the kitchen had a full draw of spices, olive oil and all other the necessities for the kitchen. Steve does an amazing job at providing all the basics, essentials, and more needed for a great stay. AC Units in all rooms worked great when needed. Beds are all comfortable and plenty of storage. Parking was more than sufficient. The house is on a busy street, but the road noise is minimal so not an issue. The house is an easy walk to the town of Carlsbad. Thanks Steve for being a great host.

  • Amazing Property!


    This adorable beach house is impeccable in cleanliness. It offers very spacious bedrooms with cozy beds, a comfortable living room, & a full, large kitchen. It really has everything you’d need! The back yard is big & serene. We enjoyed peaceful evenings around the fire pit. We walked to the village & beach every day. Amazing place - I highly recommend!!

  • We’d go back


    It’s a clean, well stocked California bungalow on a busy road. House smelled heavily of febreze on first entering. After isolating the odor pods and a good airing out it was OK. The edge of Carlsbad is 1/2 mile away, we usually walked, helped burn the dining calories. One negative is that the bathrooms have no heat, floor tiles were cold, hopefully your visit will be during warmer weather than ours. Toiletries are Costco family size, so bring your own if finicky. King bed was comfortable, wife felt pillows were uncomfortable, but pillows are never right, are they? Couch was comfortable, I napped many times during rainy days. Would be nice to have a back yard umbrella but there are trees for shade. Wife loved the fresh oranges from the tree. Driveway was tricky to maneuver, I’m sure the outdoor camera driveway vids were a good laugh. Overall good place, we’d return.

  • Quick Carlsbad Vacation


    The cottage was adorable! It was my husband and I, and our 3 teenagers that stayed and there was plenty of space. Everything was clean and updated, the backyard was lovely though we didn't get to enjoy it due to weather. Communication was excellent as well. We would definitely stay here again!
