Lovely updated home in a great location with 4 comfortable bedrooms, rec room w/ pool table, pool and hot tub. It was a golf trip and all the guests (4) enjoyed the home.

Great home, very clean. The kids had more fun here than at Disney. The beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen had anything you could need. We loved our stay! If I had to give something to make this place an 11/10, a few beach cruisers would have been amazing to find in the garage. With or without I think the home gave us exceptional value. Would book again!

Beautiful, clean home with plenty of room for our family vacation. Backyard was wonderful....pool, hot tub, fire pit, grill, outdoor a little playground area for kids. The pictures are very accurate. Great location....close to town, beach. We had a wonderful time and no issues!

Great location, well managed property, comfortable accommodations. We have family in the area who visited us and were equally impressed.
Maribeth P. Jul 2019
Very child friendly--had "Kids Club" (a little room under the stairs) that they thought was the best. Had its own little playground outside for little ones. The rest of the house was beautiful for the adults and very comfortable without being stuffy. Had everything we needed for cooking, swimming, bathing and sleeping. We loved it!

This is the 2nd time our family has stayed in this home. We love it. The only think that we can think of that needs to improve is we had trouble with the TV’s upstairs. They had to be reset daily.

We had a great family vacation, the house is large and easily accommodated our two families. The pool and all the facilities were excellent. Our only issue related to a noise compliant, the kids were in the pool after 10:15am playing (kids make noise) and one of the neighbors complained, so we spent the rest of the vacation telling them to be quiet. I totally understand the good neighbor policy and we were indoors each night by 9:30pm and no child was allowed outside before 10am but it seemed that any level of noise was unacceptable even outside of these hours.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback and we are glad to know you had a great family vacation and enjoyed your stay! The owner designed this house for everyone to enjoy, including adults with and without children of all ages. There are TVs in each room, a playroom, a pool table, a pool and jacuzzi, a firepit and a playset to ensure guests have ample entertainment at any time of the day. The City of Carlsbad has a good neighbor policy outlining that quiet hours are from 10 pm to 10 am. Thank you for going above and beyond being a good neighbor!

We loved this house and really enjoyed our time. We had three families and plenty of space and great back yard & location to LEGOLAND. Couldn't recommend this house more - perfect!!!

My family of 6 adults and 3 children absolutely loved our spring break stay at this Tamarack homenin carlsbad, CA. So well decorated with wonderful updates, comfortable furnishings, outdoor oasis including hot tub, pool and children’s play set. Great kitchen and grill for preparing meals as well. I hope to stay again!

What a beautiful home! Our family was blown away by this clean comfortably decoeated home. This home had so much to offer you never have to leave , hot tub, pool, play yard, pool table and lots more ! After a full day of fun, retire to one of the beautiful bedrooms with a matteress that feels like a cloud. This is a great home away from home !
Don K. Nov 2018
The location was perfect as was the size of the home for our family. We also loved having the convenience of a washer and dryer. The house was clean, comfortable and as beautiful as pictured on the website. It was close to, the beach, San Diego and Disneyland! Loved the amenities. Our two year old granddaughter loved having a small playground. The pool was beautiful and heated. We enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit! The kitchen was well equipped. It was also so nice to have beach toys available. We only wish we could have stayed longer:)
Theresa B. Oct 2018
The area worked well for us, close to grocery store and beaches. I liked the beach toys available. The pool table was fun.
Linda C. Sep 2018
Great location, open fresh feel in the house, loved the back yard/pool area. Easy dinning inside and outside. Large bright kitchen. All bedroom/baths comfortable. Enjoyed the 15 minute walk to beach, 3 minute walk to Vons and CVS, 2 minute drive to freeway and lagoon. Every place we went was within 40 minutes by car: - Mission Bay to rent a Duffy Electric Boat - Downtown to indoor skydive at Airborne - Took Coaster to Little Italy - Carlsbad Farmer Market - Encinitas to play pickleball at Bobby Riggs - Lagoon for water sports - Carlsbad Lock Escape Room Adventure Rose was so friendly and helpful through-out the entire process. Will definitely work with them again. House was spotless when we arrived. We are 6 gal friends (from different cities-I happen to live in Encinitas) that meet a few times each year. We all agreed this house/location was perfect for us.
Sean M. Aug 2018

Carol P. Aug 2018
We liked Carlsbad and the area very much. Amenities were great. Kitchen had everything. We especially loved the pool and fire pit.
Marcia K. Jun 2018
The kitchen had everything we needed: toys, books and games for the kids, beautiful outdoor area with pool, hot tub, grill, fire pit, beach chairs and beach towels and toys were provided, as well as washer and dryer etc. Also the owner was actively involved in problem solving so that was a plus. Made us realize she really did care. When you know they care, you want to take extra good care of things while there too. My first experience in renting a place so was very impressed!!!
Satu L. Jun 2018
Tamarack property looks like the pictures of it. It was everything we expected and more. The area looked safe and friendly. The grocery store near the property was nice surprise. It all worked nicely for us.
Lana W. Jun 2018
The pool and hot tub were enjoyable if the weather at the beach wasn’t perfect. You provided everything we needed to cook/BBQ. Loved that is was close to downtown Carlsbad/beach and quick access to Hwy 5. I loved having the app to find local events, stores, activities etc. Thank you for providing a beautiful home for us to enjoy!
Elaine . May 2018
Great area! Amenities were fantastic. We were very please with our experience. We would definitely like to come back again
