  • Great house and location

    "We stayed here for a family vacation in July and were extremely pleased with this house and location. The house is clean, modern, and well maintained. The kitchen is better stocked than any VRBO than we ever stayed at, and there have been quite a few. The pool and grounds were fun for the whole family. We had a hard time convincing our 4-year-old to get out of the pool and go to the beach. The Carlsbad beaches are only a short drive away and the area has great access to San Diego county in general. The owners were friendly and helpful in the whole process. We hope to make this a regular spot to visit in the future, and recommend it highly to other families."

  • Family Time, for Mom Dads & kids

    "Great family entertaining home. The guys enjoyed the flat screen while playing pool and us mom's had fun roasting marshmallows in the courtyard fire pit with the kids. Nice to not worry about the teenagers driving, they simply walked to the beach. We also especially enjoyed the ability to walk to the San Diego Coaster for an view trip to Gas Lamp District for dinner and shopping (didn't have to worry about a designated driver) !! The garage was filled with tons of toys, games, foosball but the message table was an added bonus..House was very clean and lots of kitchen cookware. Will be back for the winter holiday."

  • Paradise!

    "As beautiful as the pictures are on the website, you still will be blown away by the beauty of the house! The backyard is literally a paradise! My two young boys loved the pool, the TV beside the fireplace (outside!), the swingset. And the house has everything you can think of (even marshmallow roasting sticks). Carrie and Brad were wonderful hosts and they made sure that everything was immaculate upon our arrival. We were very sad to leave but hope that we will return again soon:)"

  • "mini resort" lived up to it's promise

    "We stayed with two young children for a week in this lovely home; needed a quiet getaway and this was perfect. Convenient to beach, shops, plus LEGOLAND, everything was a quick drive down the road. Large backyard with grill, pool, spa, dining setup - was all perfect for a home away from home vacation! Will definitely consider a redo!"

Private Homes Travel Tips

Carlsbad Vacation Homes Are a Great Alternative

Are you tired of expensive, uncomfortable hotels with few amenities? Do you find that crashing with friends puts a strain on your friendship that isn't worth it to you? Maybe you just want to be able to relax in a homey atmosphere. In any case, Carlsbad beach rentals could be your solution.

Carlsbad Beach Rentals Are Your Ticket to the Best Surfing Vacation Ever

Maybe, like many, you've been drawn to southern Carlsbad vacation homes by the prospect of catching some waves. Maybe you're just intrigued by surfer culture, and you want to try it out for yourself for the first time. In this is the case, Carlsbad beach rentals are a great place to stay. Local surf shops offer lessons for surfers at many levels. San Diego vacation rentals offer easy access to over a dozen beaches, some of them among the best in the world. Coronado beach, Ocean beach, Mission Bay park, Bonita cove, Pacific beach, La Jolla cove, and Windasea beach each offer their own unique benefits. For instance, La Jolla cove is known for having some of the clearest waters on the coast, and is a popular spot for snorkeling and scuba diving. Mission beach, on the other hand, is known for a cement "boardwalk" and it's Giant Dipper roller coaster.

Exploring California with Carlsbad Vacation Homes

Besides having spectacular beaches just moments away, Carlsbad vacation homes are located between San Diego and Los Angeles. That means twice the attractions, twice the entertainment options, twice the space to explore. A short drive up the beautiful coast is Anaheim, where Disneyland is located. A little further along, Los Angeles beckons, with it's famous shopping and various star studded attractions. No matter what kind of South California vacation you're looking for, Carlsbad beach rentals have something to offer you.
