Recent Carlsbad vacation rental reviews

Ww have returned several times to this place in carlsbad. Always enjoyed our stay
Linda C. | Feb 2023
We were so pleased with Everything! From the beautiful view of the ocean, falling asleep to the sound of the waves, and the cleanliness. We had more than enough room for two couples-we loved the large well stocked kitchen and cooked many of our own meals. Was great to have our own grill as well. We loved exploring Carlsbad with the great breweries, eateries, and shops-always something fun to do and then “heading home” to our great home away from home to take a walk on the beach and enjoy the amazing sunsets! The daily dolphin, seal, and whale sightings were amazing to watch as well as the surfers! 5 stars all the way!
Nicol E. | Feb 2023
4.5 stars. We loved how roomy and spacious this home was! Having 2 living areas plus a huge kitchen and dining area altogether was perfect for our family of 5 adults and 2 small children. We enjoyed the hot tub, the fire pit area, and the location very much. There are several comfortable outdoor spaces. It took a little time to figure out some things like the electric blinds, speaker systems, garbage disposal and dishwasher. Luckily my husband is handy so it wasn't a huge problem, but instructions would have saved us some time and probably would be very helpful for most people. The heater in the house worked really well, as did the coffee maker and the washer/dryer. There were some basic cleaning supplies like dish soap, trash bags and paper towels (as well as hand soap, tiny size shampoo, and some laundry soap pods), but I ended up buying some spray cleaning since there are a lot of surfaces to wipe down. Also realized there were no coffee filters, so had to pick some up (and we left the rest of the package there!).

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.
