Monterey-Gage condo description

Be one of the first to stay in this newly purchased condo in the heart of Carlsbad Village. Total remodel is finished creating a light, bright, open space. The theme of light and bright is realized with mainly creamy whites and aquamarine blues to lend a feeling of calm....complimented with splashes of bright, happy colors that exude FUN! This unit is a desirable END unit. No one is above, below, or on one side!!

Walk out the door and you are within 1 block of one of California's most desired beaches- a six mile stretch of white sand with a well designed boardwalk for walking or running. Explore the unique boutiques, restaurants and entertainment just steps away in Carlsbad Village. Outdoor concerts, unique shopping, fabulous restaurants, street fairs, and even a marathon are a sampling of the varied activities to enjoy.

The condo feels fresh and clean with new everything! We have tile floors in the main living area/bathroom, and warmer wood floors in the bedroom. Sink into the new king size bed with high quality mattress and linens to feel totally cozy and comfortable. There is also a high quality, slipcovered queen sofa sleeper in the living room.

Accommodations include:
*Flat screen HD television
*DVD/CD Player
*Tastefully designed kitchen with fun utensils and serving ware
*Beach supplies: boogie boards, tote, small cooler, blanket, umbrella, toys, and towels.

This unit is a unique find in a very unique vacation spot. We have created a space that is perfect for whatever type of vacation you want: quiet and relaxing or active and adventurous! Be one of the first to stay!

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Carlsbad Village is the ideal base from which you can easily access sites and activities to the North, in the Los Angeles area (Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios) and South, in San Diego (LEGOLAND, Sea World, San Diego Zoo and Wildlife Safari). A short 1 hour drive gets you to either city for your adventures and then return to your haven in Carlsbad Village. No car? The Coaster takes you straight to downtown San Diego to enjoy the Gas-lamp district and PetCo Park, home of the San Diego Padres. From there, you can hop aboard the Trolley to visit Balboa Park or Qualcomm Stadium, home of the San Diego Chargers.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: We are a family of 6, living in Oregon. Timothy grew up surfing in San Diego and has dreamed of someday returning to the sun, the beach and to his family. This condo is our first step toward that dream! Although the condo is not large enough for the 6 of us, we have a plan so that we can all enjoy a little time in our paradise!

                      Why the Owner Chose Monterey-Gage:
                      After driving the coastline looking for the ideal spot, we drove into Carlsbad Village, looked at the condo and we just knew it was right!. It has the same small, quaint, safe feel of the community of our Oregon beach house.....unique and artsy, fun blend of old and new, casual, friendly.....with one distinguishing factor: SUN!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      This place is in the heart of the best beach community in San Diego County. This condo is in a small complex and feels like a home, rather than a large corporate condo complex. The Village has numerous restaurants, boutique shops, amazing beaches, super friendly people and is centrally located to many activities North and South. There is a certain vibe here that can only be experienced. Come check it out.
