Four adults, one teen, and a toddler stayed in the house for one week. It was fabulous. Enough beds for everyone with some to spare. House was nice and big and clean. Has a well appointed kitchen. Sitting in the backyard was the perfect way to cap off our evenings. We used the grill (jealous because it's so much nicer than ours!) and firepit. We didn't use the hot tub but it looked like a nice one. There were bikes (and helmets), beach toys, wagon, chairs, and umbrellas in the garage. There were even 2 little scooters perfect for the backyard. The train passes by way too close but at least it rarely blew the whistle once we were in bed. It even turned into entertainment each time it passed because the 1 1/2 year old wanted to be held up to see over the fence to watch it go by. Plenty of room for parking though it's difficult to find the drive the first time. We stood out at 5 a.m. to wave the airport shuttle van in--we figured he'd never find it in the dark. House is close to the beach (1/2 mile walk so we took the car when we were going with all the beach stuff, but we often walked it in the morning just to see the ocean) and close to grocery store. If we return to Carlsbad this is definitely where we want to stay again!

Beautiful backyard. The kitchen has everything you need to cook.

Location was unbeatable. A block from the beach and close to nice little restaurants, grocery stores and drug stores.
The house is well equipped. The kitchen had more than just the basic utensils and appliances which I very much appreciated. The space was very comfortable for 2 families. Having a private yard was a plus.
The few cons are that finding the house was a bit confusing even for uber drivers because of where the house is. Another one is you could hear trains coming several times especially at night and lastly the beddings and the bathroom need better cleaning.

Great house, great location and wonderful community to spend a week by the beach.

We just loved the convenience to the beach/downtown area and the beach supplies that were provided! Having nice bikes was also great. It was our first time to Carlsbad and we thoroughly enjoyed it!! The backyard is very private and relaxing. Full disclosure the house is very close to the train tracks and has no A/C, but we were there in late July and didn't need the A/C at all. Very comfortable 65 at night. We would stay there again.

This home far exceeded our expectations. Spacious enough for multiple families with plenty to do at the home and in the area. Easy jaunt to the beach and into town on the bike path. Location has everything you need... beach chairs, beach towels, beach toys, umbrellas. Our kids entertained themselves constantly. Truly a place to rest and still have fun. Will definitely come back!

The management of Carlsbad knocked it out of the park with this one. Prior to arriving I received a detailed email describing exactly how to get there and access the house which gave us so much confidence in a foreign place. The house itself was spacious, clean and filled with everything you could ever use (including bikes with locks!!!). I will definitely be recommending vacasa to everyone I know and hopefully booking another trip through vacasa soon! Thank you!!!

Everything about the house was over & above what we expected. Loved the location.
Close proximity to beaches, restaurants, & LEGOLAND! Loved the backyard & the privacy it offered! We would rent this property again without a doubt!

This was a wonderful Thanksgiving visit! We were a group of seven meeting lots of family in Carlsbad. It’s a short walk to the beach and easy drive to the Village. The home was immaculate and very spacious. The kitchen is modern and has all the amenities needs for cooking meals. The kitchen island and living room fit our intended family for hanging out. My favorite spot was the beautiful garden. We ate at the outdoor table, bird-watched and enjoyed the hot tub. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant!

Beautiful Property…inside and out. We had a great stay here. The place was very roomy. We had two families… and there was plenty of room. We really loved the Hot Tub. There was also tons of beach chairs, beach toys, etc. so we didn’t need to pack those items. I also liked the place was very private compared to other properties. The walk to the beach was about 6-8 minutes. Communication was great too, my brother forgot his laptop at the house after our stay, ad we were able to contact someone to recover it quickly.

Great location with perfect amenities for a family vacation! Close to the beach, downtown Carlsbad and an easy drive to LegoLand. Would definitely recommend for families.

This place is family and kid friendly. The backyard has plenty of room for kids to run around and burn off some energy and the jacuzzi and fire pit are perfect for adults to enjoy themselves as well. It was really nice that there were beach towels available to us to use. We also enjoyed the fireplace one it got to be after 10pm and moved inside to be considerate of the neighbors. The beds are super comfortable and while I remembered to pack my toiletries I appreciated that there were some limited option available if you forgot the basics. Don’t forget to get out of the house and enjoy Carlsbad, though, the beach is so close, as is the lagoon where you can rent thing like stand up paddle boards. There’s lots of fun restaurants nearby plus Legoland, the Flower Fields, and the Museum of Making Music (just a few of our favorite Carlsbad activities) are all a short drive away.

An absolutely perfect holiday spent at this house. My cousin got engaged in the backyard by the fire pit and my large family comfortably enjoyed the beautiful setting. Highly recommend!

This was our second stay at this property and it was even better than the last. Everything was so clean and the years is such a nice space to relax in. We definitely stay here again!
Gregory . Sep 2015
Everything was as expected from the description and pictures. The house was very clean with new updates throughout. The kitchen had nice, clean, new appliances for cooking. The backyard was private and peaceful. It was everything we expected with great entertaining and hang-out spaces. The local grocery store was just down the street, and it was a quick walk/drive to the beach with surfboards and beach stuff.
