Private Homes, Village house description

Bright, airy, private home with ocean breezes. French doors and 16-pane windows throughout create the feeling of a romantic cottage. A wood burning fireplace and modern, fully equipped kitchen allow you to settle in and make The Edwinds home away from home.

Nestled in Olde Carlsbad, where each home is unique - no track home presence - with quiet neighbors and mature gardens and Palm trees.

If you feel the need, there is a full office space with desk, lamp, chair, and wireless printer that also doubles as a game room with ocean views from the attached deck. Or, enjoy the TV Room with DVD as another space -- both allow for work and play while there.

Day or evening, sip a cocktail on the private ocean view deck, and take in amazing, unobstructed sunsets.

The heart of the house opens onto a pristine, outdoor oasis with a day bed, private jacuzzi, bbq, patio, fruit trees and cactus garden in complete privacy. Gardener tended gardens and yard ensures green grass to sink your feet into, all winter long.

It's a happy place to be!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: We love The Edwinds West - named after both our fathers who were named Edwin, coupled with the amazingly fresh ocean breezes there. We were married in 2011, and with Todd's work on the east coast, we are only able to enjoy this home occasionally, so we decided to share it with others! We are both lovers of the outdoors and spend time sailing, mountain biking and golfing together, particularly in Carlsbad... We both spent years working in the Hotel business, and so love to create wonderful experiences with our friends and family through cooking, wine tasting, entertaining and traveling. We have 2 cats who stay with us on the east coast, and Todd 3 kids who are now heading off to college. Eventually we will return to The Edwinds West to enjoy a fabulous retirement.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Village:
                      After many discussions, we decided to open our home to people, like us, who enjoy vacation rentals. We have trust in the network of people who experience and trust others homes as their own, and hope to hear about wonderful experiences for those who stay there.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We love to bike or walk to the beach in the mornings... after a few blocks, you suddenly see and feel the ocean and pick up your pace to get on the sand. We walk for miles without many people around in most parts, and enjoy the fabulous oceanfront mansions along the way. We do the same for wonderful dinners on the ocean or in The Village. Paon - Zagat rated and where we held our wedding dinner is a favorite for wine tasting and dinners, and Vigillucci's on the ocean with live music and a great outdoor view deck. We also love the local pubs, shopping, and restaurants for fish tacos and sunset rituals. Carlsbad Premium Outlets are just 2 miles away and have endless finds with some of our favorite brands. Because it's an outdoor mall, it's wonderful even on a sunny day. There are so many places to golf year round within a few miles, that we can't settle on one favorite spot. A few blocks from the house is a salt water lagoon with paddle boards, jet skis and kayaks, which we love. While on the water, we see seals and amazing birds...such a hidden treasure. Mission Bay, Oceanside Pier, Legoland, The famous San Diego Zoo and Safari are all a quick drive away. Disneyland and Orange County finds like Laguna and Newport Beach are perfect 30-40 minute drives. All summer, we enjoy Legoland firework displays from our deck. Sometimes we just cruise the coast, and visit the small towns on the water to stroll, shop or dine in. We love the meditation gardens in Encinitas and kayaking with the Sea Lions in La Jolla.
