Property description

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 only one mile from Carlsbad 'village' ....just far enough away from crowds, traffic, noisy night life and parties...... yet still close to all!

This small and beautiful detached private vacation rental house (not condo) has spectacular panoramic white water ocean views from inside and outside. It has a landscaped, enclosed yard with outdoor dining area with whitewater view. There is a propane grill, a firepit, patio furniture, beach gear, parking, and laundry facilities.

A scenic trail to Carlsbad's best beach starts right in front of the property! It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the beach. Beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, towels, boogey boards are all provided!

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

Our houses is 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!

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 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 classic beach house -- 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 Carlsbad Company Stores 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.
