Recent Carlsbad vacation rental reviews

The house was located in a convenient spot close to grocery stores and beaches. Very comfortable and cozy especially with our two dogs
Sasha C. | Dec 2022
Beautiful home! Lovely views! Highly recommend this home for a special family gathering.
Mary W. | Dec 2022
Very nicely decorated, well-maintained and well-furnished, with lovely gardens and outdoor seating area. There is also a hot tub that we did not use (but that we saw a maintenance person servicing while we were there) and a shed has been altered to double as a kids play house and storage for camp chairs and beach supplies. The 15 minute walk to Carlsbad Village for shopping and dining is pleasant. We had three cars and no problem at all parking two of them in the street in front of the house to allow all of us to come and go without sharing the driveway, although there was room for more at least three cars there. We had to request linens for the sofa bed and washcloths for the bathrooms, but they were delivered quickly. I have a pet peeve about lack of bedside tables and places to plug in cell phones next to them, so we bring our own extension cords when we rent houses, and we needed them here. (I would suggest to management that at least the bedroom with the en suite bathroom (master bedroom) have two nightstands, and all nightsands should have a multi-plug device for charging phones, etc.).

Carlsbad is known as the Flower Capital of the U.S. for its Giant Tecolote Ranunculus fields, which pop into stunning bloom in March, but that’s just the beginning of what this town has to offer. An affluent beach village with a beautiful coastline, the town is also a hot spot for foodies, families, and surfers. Its most notable surf beach is Tamarack Surf Beach, while South Carlsbad State Beach offers a quieter and secluded feel. 

If you’re traveling with kids, make sure to visit Legoland for rides and games, as well as a stop at Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park, which houses gorgeous free-roaming peacocks. Laze the day away at the beach, grab lunch at a taco stand, tour the Sea Life Aquarium, and visit the village flea market. All the fun awaits with Carlsbad beach rentals.
