Great house close to the beach with all amenities.
Samuel Q. Mar 2021
We were able to book this property again and absolutely had another amazing spring break with our kids! The large enclosed front driveway was great for the lil playing on scooters and riding toys. The hot tub and fire pit were a hit as well. Great open layout of the house and location to the beach and Carlsbad village is why we wanting to book this property again!

This home is absolutely beautiful very spacious wonderful for entertaining beautiful backyard the one thing that we had a problem was with the Jacuzzi. The previous reviews had said that the Jacuzzi wasn’t working and I was assured by the owner that it was the only thing that was working was the Jets and the lighting and after hours of having it on it only warmed up to 68° they came out in the afternoon the next day to fix the tub and it only got up to 100° Which isn’t hot enough also they put way too much chlorine in the tub that we were itching and you could smell the chlorine on our bodies for days. Because of that experience we did not wanna use the tub at all which is the main reason I got the house. But besides that the house is beautiful.

Stayed here with parents and we have a 1 yr. old & 4 yr old. Great place! Split floor plan gives everyone space. Great backyard for kids. Hot tub was relaxing. Fire pit great for smores. Not to far from beach. Big kitchen and grill for cooking. Simple decor so no need to worry about kids getting into anything. Already booked our second stay! Highly recommend.

We absolutely loved our time at this home. The beach is only a few blocks away which is a definite perk of this house. The fire pit in the back is lovely as is the hot tub. The big kitchen made cooking a breeze and the open concept was great for the 4 of us. The only thing we would mention is the house is very echoy, so if you are hard of hearing you may have trouble here. It didn't bother us, just had to say "what??" a lot :) we totally recommend this house and will definitely be back!!

Nice, clean home near beach.
Suzanne K. Jul 2020
House was clean and smelled amazing walking in. Plenty of space for my family of 6. We spent most of our time at the beach or in the backyard. We roasted marshmallows by the gas fire pit almost ever night. Easy walk to the beach. My 3 kids rode the bikes back and forth to 7-11 and to get ice cream. There were several boogie boards to use. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook. I was thrilled to see a refrigerator with ice cream. We just carried our hydros to the beach everyday, instead of 1000 water bottles. Beautiful and comfortable home.

This home was about a five minute walk to the beach and in a great location! It was nestled at the end of a long driveway and completely private. The house was completely updated and nicely furnished and had everything possible you can imagine. The backyard was huge with a hot tub fire pit and great outdoor dining. I loved the space on the inside and it was definitely big enough for our big family. It was stocked with towels bikes boogie boards and everything you could need for the beach. I would definitely stay here again.
You could drive to downtown Carlsbad Village in about two minutes or walk there in about 10. This is a perfect vacation house.

This house was amazing, we stayed Friday and left Monday, we came with our four kids (3 boys and a girl) for my boyfriends rugby game and it was perfect. More than enough room. The boys shared the room with the bunk beds and twin, and the house had 3 pack n plays there for guests to use. My daughter had her own room and bathroom, the bougie little diva. We could have brought a few more people. It was clean and well taken care of. It could use some updated kitchen items, and I was really excited about the hot tub but couldn’t use it because it really needed to be serviced. The water was really low and there was a bunch of gunk and hair in it, but all in all I will look for this house again the next time I go. I just hope the hot tub will be usable next time. Super close to the beach, bikes wagons and toys with boogie boards in the garage. We loved this house.
Jessica K. Feb 2020
The back yard was fantastic. Lots of padded chairs, loungers, fountain, table and a wonderful hot tub!
We enjoyed the backyard every morning and evening.
The house was well equipped with everything we needed. The two master suites is nice for privacy and the kids loved the bunk beds.
The kitchen is wonderful very up dated.
I definitely recommend staying here. We were minutes from LEGOland, and your close to the safari park. There are a lot of fantastic restaurants close by as well.
There is a train very close that goes all day and night. It didn’t bother us but our kids sleep with a white noise machine that blocked it out!
Definitely a house to stay in!

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.
Marga V. Aug 2019
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.
Thomas M. Aug 2019
Great house, great location and wonderful community to spend a week by the beach.
Diane H. Aug 2019
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.
Tammy J. May 2019
Beautiful house and surroundings. Had a great time and the accommodations were fantastic.
Karen L. May 2019
We loved the location of this home, so close to a beautiful beach. Perfect beach home.
Paul H. Apr 2019
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!
Kloe K. Apr 2019
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!!!
Lola O. Apr 2019
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!
Nima . Aug 2017
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.
Sanjay . Jul 2017
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.
Olivia . Mar 2017
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!
Nia . Sep 2016
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.
