Private Homes, Village house description

BE SURE TO EMAIL US! We often offer lower prices (except in summer.) ALL our pictures are taken from our property, 'THE BEST SPOT IN CARLSBAD!'

Enjoy spectacular ocean and lagoon views from this extraordinarily relaxing & serene home-away-from-home at the beach. Locals call it, 'The Best Spot in Carlsbad.'

Situated on a low bluff steps from the beach, with magnificent white water ocean views, we are on a quiet cul-de-sac, in a neighborhood of private, multi-million-dollar homes. We are exactly one mile from Carlsbad 'village' ....just far enough away from crowds, traffic, noisy night life and parties...... yet still close to all!

There are two small and beautiful detached private vacation rental houses (not condos) on this very special property. Both vacation homes have whitewater ocean views from inside and outside. Each vacation house has it's own ocean view yard with outdoor dining area. Each house has its own grill, firepit, patio furniture, beach gear, parking, and new laundry facilities.

A scenic trail to Carlsbad's best beach starts right in front of the property! It takes about 3 minutes to walk to the beach. Beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, towels, boogey boards, and an outdoor shower with hot water are all provided!

Each house has two bedrooms and one full bath. Each is recently remodeled, fully equipped, and well stocked with everything you will need. There is plenty of offstreet parking. The entire property is enclosed and safe.

Both houses are kept immaculately clean!!

We have so many repeat visitors -- you may become one! Be sure to read our guests 'comments' by clicking the link below. You'll be impressed!

Rental rates are for one house, and the rates are the same for either house.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: Starting with my early childhood summer vacations at the seashore in New Jersey, I have always loved the beach and ocean. After growing up on the San Francisco peninsula, surrounded by the Bay and the ocean, I moved to Hawaii ... and that was it! I became a true ocean addict. I have enjoyed the magnificence of an ocean view virtually my entire adult life, and consider it an essential. Getting tossed by the waves and walking on the beach are two of my favorite passtimes. It delights me to share the experience of these things with my guests, and to see their smiling faces as they relax and enjoy the stunning meeting of earth, sea, and sky!

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Village:
              When I discovered the property I am now so fortunate to own, I said the same thing I have heard thousands of times from neighbors and visitors...'This is the Best Spot in Carlsbad!' This little neighborhood has it all: The gorgeous views of the ocean and the lagoon, wonderful ocean breezes, a trail from the property to the beach, proximity to the restaurants of the Village and the Coaster train, great nearby shopping, easy freeway access -- but it's just far enough away from all these to avoid the noise and traffic! And, being at the North end of San Diego County, it's a great location for day trips to Disneyland or LA as well as all the San Diego attractions.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              There is something very special about this property and its two classic beach houses -- a feeling of peaceful enjoyment, serenity, and the beauty of nature. Yet, it's just a stones throw to all the action! Carlsbad's best beach, Tamarack, is right out front. It is a sandy beach with lifeguards (summer only), restrooms, and showers. The Village is one mile away, with many restaurants, cafes, icecream, gift shops, and boutiques. A shopper's delight awaits at the Outlet mall, a 5 minute drive. The lagoon (just to the south and east of the property) offers fishing, exploring, jet skiing, and sailing. Many guests love to simply relax in the ocean breezes, enjoying the sunshine and views from the yard and patios, dining outside, and letting the kids play safely in the yard.
